I really enjoyed working this job. I did all my jobs self employed went to the stores got my boxes. Set up did my event and had the manager sign for reimbursement. Then scanned all my paperwork in to get paid. I am great at Brand Ambassandor but, the company owes me checks they never paid me they still do owe that money to me and its been almost a year and they haven't paid me.
Barista (Current Employee) – Bellingham, WA – December 11, 2018
The other employees are usually amazing to be around but the management is awful. 8 hours of work no lunch. Manager cuts hours if you want a day off. You don't get days off normally. Manager can get hostile, very passive aggressive as well.
One 10 minute break, no lunch, no place to sit, no health care benifits
A pick and choose employee (Current Employee) – NC – December 11, 2018
If you can get instructed on how to do something once, and then do it, you're really gonna love doing this. For the people that can really hustle, it's a great gig to pick up. I had a great time and 30 days later the check came. I will impress on you though, sometimes you work with a crew and sometimes you work all by yourself.
Product Demonstrator/Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – USA – November 9, 2018
This is a job that you can pretty much do whenever you want and I love that. I wish there was more I could do with my regular full time job I can't work too often. When I do work it is a great experience and has taught me a lot about new products.
BRAND AMBASSADOR (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – November 7, 2018
Working with big orange is always a thrill, you get to meet and greet and talk to a lot of people. It's always pleasant every time i work for big orange I get to experience new things and learn a whole lot of different things as well.
You can bid on as many or as little demos as you want, giving you the freedom to set your own schedule for the most part. The only downfall is that you aren't paid until 30 days after the execution of your demo.
Freedom to set your own schedule
30 day wait on paychecks, no direct deposit option.
Demo Specialist (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – August 15, 2018
I love working for this company...your an independent contractor who makes your own schedule. The demos are fun and you pass out samples. The management is informative, but don’t reply fast to calls or texts. I have never had issues with payments! My checks are on time. I can see myself working here a long time.
Brand Ambassador - Spokesmodel (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – August 13, 2018
Brand ambassadors are asked to do most if not all of what makes this company run and are not compensated appropriately in my opinion. Sometimes the booking agents are a little unprofessional/unaware of what is even going on..
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Bellevue, NE – March 22, 2018
I been working for Big Orange for 4 years. The pay is great and if there is a promo for an event it pays anywhere for $10 - $25 more. You pick the events you want to work and you're usually assigned to them about 99% of the time. I have made many friends with staff and customers at the stores I work in and look forward to seeing them each time I work. Work is mostly on the weekends and then events are usually 4 1/2 to 5/12 hours depending on the store. I can usually make $150 working 2 events and if I want to do a double shift on both days I can make $300. Taxes are not taken out but you can claim millage on your taxes. I put in for as many events as I can as the work is fun and when you get your first check after the first 30 days, then you can start getting checks every week provided that apply for the events you can work
Easy work and great pay
Having to wait 30 days before you receive your first check.
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – March 19, 2018
Collaborate with customer service team members to give exceptional service throughout the entire shopping and purchasing experience. Communicated information to customers about product quality, value and style. Build customer confidence by actively listening to their concerns and giving appropriate feedback. Customers are very friendly and curious about the product(s). Educate customers on product and service offerings. Help customers select products that best fit their personal needs. The hardest part of this job is when you have to improvise when the product or your demo kit is not available. The most enjoyable part of this job is believing in the product that you are promoting and the customers believe in you.
Lots of networking with other Vendors and Customers
Contractor (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – March 5, 2018
Getting my pay docked because their system would not accept it and them trying to email me at 3AM is a bit off. Did the work and then spent hours trying to submit paper work to get docked $50. I normally sleep between 12AM and 6AM. I live on the West Cost, it is not that hard for them to see that when looking at their records. The management wont fix the issue. I have worked with them for over three years with no problem, now it is one headache after another.
Promotional Marketing (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – February 25, 2018
Worked for the company for years, pay has steadily decreased, jobs have become lackluster in comparison with previous events. Its a very laid back position for the most part, select your own jobs, its all up to the coordinators to book you of course so its a little competitive. I just dont think I live in a big enough city for proper events anymore. They've only been offering food sampling, and cell phone promos recently, its not bad, but its not for me.
