Acosta Field Marketing Representative
Field Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – San Mateo, CA – May 19, 2016
My position involved the maintenance and retail and theater marketing of product for Disney Home Video and Walt Disney Pictures.
I was able to apply my expertise in Field Marketing and promotion from my nearly fifteen years working in the music industry, in my position with Mosaic/Acosta.
Since I worked regionally out of my home, there was very little interaction from the company's home office, which was located out of state. The regional manager lived over one hundred miles away, and my only communication with him was by telephone.
The most difficult aspects of the job involved dealing with movie theater personnel, who were usually indifferent to the work I was doing, and were often unavailable to speak to.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to assist stores with product placement, and helping increase their sales.
The ability to set my own schedule, while achieving my daily work tasks in a timely manner.
Insufficient work hours, minimal compensation and no benefits to speak of.
