Galleria Marketing is a huge scam. Its all about one to two individuals making a living off others that are brainwashed to believe they can make it somewhere in the company. The honest truth is there is no growth in the company.

I worked there for four months and am sad to say i fell for the scam in the beginning. They are really good at making you believe that something good will come out of your time there. When really it is basically community service, with absolutely no room for growth or a financial future.

You should really stay away from galleria marketing all together. If you go to the first round interview you are already in trouble. These guys are pros, thats all they have to do for their job is bring you in and hopefully you stick around for a couple weeks and get them sales. Its a free trial for them because they dont pay you anyways.

Some people actually believe in the scam and believe they are going to make it someplace. I feel really bad for them. There is this one guy there that takes out interviews everyday and bust his butt in the field and is the best at sales in there office and i dont think he even gets a thank you. Let alone ever getting a promotion to management. There is no room for growth in the company period. Its just a scheme for a couple of people to get rich. Hopefully he got out of there. He was definetly brainwashed.

All in all Galleria marketing is a huge scam that prays on recent graduates that need a job and dont know any better. The are professional scam artist. Just disregard there post on all the job sites. They will lure you in and it will be a huge waste of time and you will lose a lot of money and time before you realize its all just a profit program for a couple of individuals.

Some quick facts:

no base, no reimbursments, no room for growth, no benifits, and absolutely no trust in their corporate structure.

Scam! Avoid this company!!

AUTHOR: God - (United States of America)

DO NOT APPLY FOR A JOB WITH THIS COMPANY!!! It's 100% sales, FOREVER! Even after you get promoted! The promotions mean jack s**t, once you get promoted you'll just be doing extra slave work and still get paid the same, maybe even less than before!! Everyone who works here is shady, the ones who aren't shady are the ones who end up leaving within a few days! Lol

Also like to mention that they WILL screw you over on your pay... They will always try to avoid paying you for the deals you got by stalling your check. They'll give you bs about it being a "claw back" or whatever else they can think of until you eventually just give up or forget about those deals. They still owe me over $180 for a few deals. They also owe another girl who quit with me over $500!!!! You also spend more money than you make on gas and eating lunch, you'll be driving all over Houston. If you don't drive you will have to walk ALL DAY.

Avoid these scammers at all cost! There's a reason why they ALWAYS have job adds, no one stays long because they catch on! When I quit about 4 other left too!

Tasha Dixon's Summary: I have helped to expand our company from one office in Houston to 6 offices nationwide. I am the fatest promoting Recruiter in our Organization and I consistently have at least 1-2 Assistant Directors at a time. In my first year and a half at Galleria Marketing, I promoted 7 Assistant Managers and helped to open four other branch locations. I maintain our office headcount of 50 sales/marketing reps consistently. In Spring 2009 our office broke all company records for the Quill/Staples marketing campaigns all across North America. We are within the top 3 offices on our campaign in North America. My goal is to continue to grow our Organization to 50 offices nationwide and to be promoted to Senior HR Consultant by Fall 2011.

Galleria Marketing = Opportunity, NOT scam

AUTHOR: miss factual - (United States of America)

I too used to work for Galleria Marketing... for 3 years. And what's funny is that I can name two people that most likely wrote these postings after they got fired... the dates add up, but out of respect, I won't write their names here. What I don't understand is why people get so disgruntled and have no lives that they have to try and go after a GREAT company. Galleria Marketing represents opportunity, experience, obtaining skills, training... it represents anything and everything that any entry level or mid level professional would want in a career. Does that mean it's easy? No. But is anything worth keeping or having easy? Absolutely not. I also find that individuals that fail are the one's that set aside the time to go online and post negative things. Look up ANY and ALL companies on this website and you will find bad reviews and scam postings for ALL of them. Everything written on websites like this one are really all opinion based... which means none of it shows validity or has a truth backing. Galleria Marketing works with not only fortune 500 companies, but they also partner with non-profits and charities. They even volunteer at the Children's Museum and about 90% of all the employees have at the minimum a Bachelors degree. There's some validity for you. Check out their facebook and their merchant circle profile, you'll find lots of good reviews for them. Again, validity.

My suggestion, go in and meet the company and make your opinion. All because I loved it, you may hate it. On the contrary, all because this person got fired and became disgruntled, you may hate it. Be an adult, an individual, an intellectual, and make up your own mind based on your own experience.
