Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IN – November 22, 2016
While working at Big Orange as a brand ambassador, you will be responsible for promoting various products and services. They pay you well for your time, but it isn't a full time job. The people you work with are great. If you enjoy interacting with new people and can get past hearing no, Big Orange would be good for you.
Decent wages, good people, upbeat environment, flexibility
Must find promotions in your area unless you are willing to travel

BRAND AMBASSADOR (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – August 16, 2016
I had worked some events for this agency and had not been a good experience to work with at all.. Late payment and recently, no payment receieved for my two jobs worked for them. I will get Legal Assistance to get my money back! People working their are not responsive at all, just ignoring your calls and emails all the time. They are they are the only one staffing agency outside and very dominating! I WEAR WILL NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY ANY MORE. JUST USE YOU TO TRAVEL AROUND PLACES TO DO WORK FOR THEM FOR FREE. NOT CARE AND NOT RESPND TO CALLS AT ALL. VERY WORRISOME IN TERM OF PAYING YOU ON TIME OR EVEN WILL PAY YOU. Such a self-centered and selfish company...
I like being able to choose when I work! Flexible work schedule!

I get to travel to different stores in my area and surrounding areas as well. I like the flexibiliy of picking my jobs. I wish I could get paid sooner than a month at a time, but other than that I like working for Big Orange.
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – DFW – September 20, 2015
The jobs are hard to secure due to timing, probability and chance, but once you get a promo its a cinch! Its fun and the materials come on time. It's very difficult to reach your agents on the phone or communicate with them via text or email. They send the jobs and info to you, but pretty much are on to their next task until your job comes up with details for them to communicate to you.
I'm sure these are snags that can be worked out if you have a lot of available time :-) Keep in mind that I've done few jobs for them. A typical day is easy. Call to check in. Set up display. Hardest part of the job...none :-D The most enjoyable part of the job? You get to talk to wonderful people.
Great salaries, promo materials are on time.
agent communication availability limited if there is a problem

Independent Contracted Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Athens, GA – April 5, 2015
A typical day at work for this company is ever changing in some aspects like client representation but the end result is the same: provide professional marketing representation. I've learned to be more outgoing in this type of work because my goal is to promote product sales. I sometimes have co-workers in the sense that other representatives work with me as a team to promote a product. It's nice to see how other representatives do the same thing as me but obviously with their own techniques, which I can possibly learn from. The hardest part of this job is promoting products that consumers are not traditionally interested in. The most enjoyable part of the job is the independent aspect. I choose what jobs to bid on, which can vary by: date, time, location, product, pay, team or solo gigs, etc.
Meet new people!
Trying to promote products that consumers may not be excited about.

Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – February 19, 2014
The hardest part of the job is having people ignore you even though you know they heard you. I admit that I enjoy the remarks people make about the product that gets sampled (some people have posted it on Facebook).
