Evolution Advertising is just another company name AKA SMI and Associates.

I'm so glad I did my research so I did not wasted my precious time. I pasted information from another user that got schemed, if you check on Ripoffreport.com about the Company named Sports Marketing International, you will notice that the address is the same.

So, all you have to do is read on.

" Please beware of SMI and Associates, Sports Marketing International jobs in Lombard, Schaumburg, Naperville, etc. They are MLM company that participates in misleading, and straight-up dishonest practices!

They will tell you they have 'big wig' clients like the White Sox. This is NOT a marketing agency. It is door-to-door dishonest soliciting. Dishonest to consumers and dishonest to their employees.

Please do not fall for their schemes! Sports Marketing International (SMI and Associates), and the like, prey on young, naive college graduates, servers, athletes. Sports Marketing International doesn't do a stitch of marketing consulting work for any sports teams (or any other place for that matter). This is straight up dishonest sales. If you are still working at SMI and Associates, I beg you to get out now!

Oh, and as an independant contractor (as that is how Sports Marketing International will 'hire' you) you ARE required to file your sales on your taxes. The 'manager' at this place (Greg) is encouraging employees at SMI and Associates to participate in illegal activities, such as soliciting in governmentally protected non-soliciting areas, and not file taxes. He is putting you in very illegal situations and manipulating you!

It is NOT normal to work long 10 hour days and no even be on the company's payroll. You are NOT your own manager (as the company tries to make you think you are), you have a sly, manipulative, fast-talking boss standing over your shoulder telling you you can't leave until you have sold all of your items!

Please, I beg you to NOT apply to this company, or anything affiliated with Doug Ascher, SmartCircle, SMI and Associates, or Sports Marketing International".
