A good job for high school studets or people between jobs

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I would go out to multiple locations in the D.C. metropolitan area and would advertise for local businesses buy standing on street corners and performing tricks with a six foot sign. It was and outdoor job so being able to work though different seasons and weather conditions would be difficult. Wind in rain in particular were a detriment to the capability of performing tricks. Although, it was enjoyable to go out to different areas across Maryland and Virginia and see what was out there. People would regularly cheer as well which made performing all the more entertaining. There was a large chain of people I worked through, all of whom I had a good relationship. I was paid on time and was praised for my abilities and my clean slate in terms of the companies I advertised for. I was driven to the locations by multiple different people and while some rides I were quiet and I would likely nap, other times we would have enjoyable conversations about our lives in the free time we had. My main issue was a somewhat unfair attitude I received from my main manager. While I had no personal issue with him I found it difficult to receive bonuses compared to others who I knew to be quite lazy on the job. Overall, though that was not what made me quit but rather another job taking up so much of my time that I could not work both simultaneously.

Pros

Friendly; good pay for hours worked; good exercise

Cons

Lazy coworkers; bad weather

The highest-paying workout you can do

The typical work day is 4-6 hours and consists of dispatch to the client's location, positioning near their location and guiding potential customers with a large sign, using a broad repertoire of flashy, gimmicky maneuvers to attract as much attention as possible.

Pros

Travel opportunities, ample breaks

Cons

Very "entry-level" position, no health benefits

Good place to work, many different kinds of people

AArrow is very inclusive with hiring and interviewing their employees. They also have great trainers, so very little experience is required to get the job, just good work ethic!

Very easy place to work for.

The company and the managers find clients and tell you where to spin on a certain day. They train you to entertain and get attention from passing cars. You can dance with your music or make a routine, or you can just do tricks the whole time. Will work for someone that likes to be alone and outside.

The management was not very organized

I really enjoyed the time at this job because it was fairly easy. The hardest thing about this job was being outside in the summer. The management was not very organized. I would get the schedule for the week and everyone would have hours and throughout the week the schedule would change for no apparent reason.

Pros

30 minute breaks

Cons

Had to pay for your lunches

Great place to work for young teens

Working as a sign spinner with Aarrow Ads was great fun. Everyone trained together at least once a week. It was easy money and fun to learn all the tricks.

A relaxed but hard working environment

a typical day at work would be slow at times but fast as well. Learned how to advertise in many different ways. Management was willing to work with you . The hardest part of the job was all ways not knowing where your advertising next. Most enjoyable was meeting lots of different kinds of people.

Pros

easy, fun

Cons

travel a lot

Bad Management

This is a very young company that started the business in 2002 and have a very young and hip atmosphere, a typical day started with the canvassing local business that would benefit from our brand of advertising. To calling back any potential listing for services or employment. The company had issues with communication from there Managment team. I decided to take my talents elsewhere. This is a full-service company that having young males ages from 16-30. That are able body to spin and dance with a six foot, six pound sign.

Pros

Happy atmosphere

Cons

No growth in there sales department

I've had better

Was hired on as a salesperson and hated every minute of it. The work was not for me. The manager was well-meaning enough to try to train me how to be a good salesperson, but without proper compensation, it was really hard to be motivated on a commission only "salary".

Its decent

It's a good and easy job to get as a high schooler. Carpooling causes lots of issues, protocol to deal with lateness is unfair, requiring people to attend practices to receive checks is unreasonable. Managers are mostly understanding and nice but the company quite disorganized.

Pros

Cool environment, easy to get days off on shorter notice, higher than minimum wage

Cons

Disorganized, carpool, certain protocol is unfair

Learning new tricks and making our clients happy is really fun to do in the AArrows Advertising Company. I am very happy and I also learned my strengths working with this team.

Very productive placement and fun work environment.

Good work environment. Slow days, slower hours. Everyone gives tips on how to make the day easier. The hardest part of the job depends on the weather of how cold or hot it is.

Pros

Music playlists.

Cons

Weather. Rain, sleet or snow etc.

Tiring

There isn't much to expect when you spin a sign on a corner of a street. There were breaks for my 5-6 hour shifts, it was extremely hot during the summer so I would recommend bringing more than you expect to be safe when you spin. Someone with a car will pick you up and drop you off.

Pros

Easy Job, Promotion is Easy, High Pay

Cons

Tiring work, hot days

Marketing Specialist Experience

Aarrow Advertising is a new and impactful style of sports and advertising that catches the attention of millions at many street corner nationally. With training & endurance, one spinner can become a trainer and move upwards in managment as their skillsets increase. I have gained much marketing knowledge and networking experience in the process of helping the promotion of many businesses throughout Houston TX and the Washington D.C. area as well as North Carolina, New York, and New Jersey markets.
