    I have been working at Zengo & Co full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am a current employer with Zengo & Co, going on 6 months now. Everyone is beyond supportive and has a great positive attitude. The managers want nothing more than success for everyone and will treat everyone equally with great respect. I am so happy being employed here and i wake up every morning excited to go to work for the first time in my life.

    Cons

    Honestly, i can't think of anything bad to say if you are a driven hard worker you will succeed. If you are a negative nancy this is not the job for you... everyone i work with has a great personality and we get along like a big family.

    I worked at Zengo & Co full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    i got to wake up everyday and go to work and waste my day and time

    Cons

    I worked at Zengo for a month and they were not honest with me from the beginning. First they are not open about that the job requires your to solicit sales literally at people's doors. 2. The managers will try to make it seem they make tons of money while they don't just to make you interested, They will tell you that in 6 months you will own your own company which is a LIE. THIS IS A MULTI LEVEL MARKETING SCAM!!!!!!! 3. They will tell you, get paid weekly but in reality it's all commission and you will not get paid until the 4th week, That's if you get paid. THEY RIPPED ME OFF WITH MY CHECK. I WORKED FOR A MONTH AND MY CHECK WAS LESS THAN $50 i also had to call them 300 times before i even got it 4. Here are some fraud complaints; go to rip off . com to see all the complaints they have 5. There are more fraud complains with zengo and it's related companies feel free to do your own research 6.On thursday Night they have 'friendly competitions' which they make bets about who is buying drinks at the bar and blah blah blah. Problem is they never really own up to this because they don't make enough money 7. TO BE HONEST YOU ARE BETTER OF BEING A POTATO COUCH AND WATCHING SPONGE BOB MARATHONS OR STANDING ON MICHIGAN AVE. ASKING FOR MONEY THAN WORKING FOR THEM. 8. Did i mention everything is commission based, you have to have your own transportation and lunch everyday They also change the company's name if they get too many complains on the company, they also tend to relocate if they feel burned out. They want you to work long hours because they know they don't have to pay you by the hour. I will call it being exploited than actually working.because you make less than minimum wage. For more info. look at credico scams.

    Pros

    I love the fast paced environment and the awesome co-workers. The one great thing about Zengo is no one is made to feel like they are any less.

Everyone from senior management to fellow co workers are understanding are awesome and motivating. Moreover, its the best location ever!

    Cons

    I don't believe there is a downside as we are all in this together and growing to become brilliant at our work!

    Pros

    A great workplace environment! A fast paced environment, well suited for highly productive people who like to work hard.

    Cons

    Zengo & Co is not the place for the lazy, entitled person who sits around doing nothing, and then expects to get paid for it. If you are this type of person, don't bother interviewing or taking a job. You won't last.

    I worked at Zengo & Co

    Pros

    That's a horrible place to work. The CEO lie to everyone in the company and the company doesn't call Zengo before they actually change the name of the company cause there are too much bad reviews which is true! Try to google it before go there.

    Cons

    Nothing challenge working here cause you talking to homeless people everyday give out free cellphones. They try to make the job looks good by dressing suits and located in downtown Chicago.

    Pros

    I am incredibly grateful to be a part of the Zengo & Co family. I feel working for Zengo & Co gives each employee a sense of belonging. They empower, support and inspire each of us. People genuinely care about one another, not simply within their teams, but across the entire company. I also feel very valued in the company, and that makes me want to work hard in return.

    Cons

    There is not a downside of this organization.

    I worked at Zengo & Co

    Pros

    With a great friendly staff, personal training and personal based success you can't go wrong with working here. Best part about the job was having the knowledge that you yourself was the only limiting factor to the success. Management always left you the open door towards your own success! I learned so much on my internship with Zengo which has made me a better person in all areas! My time there built my personal skills and innerpersonal skills far beyond where I would have been otherwise. Also right away you are part of the team. Again you have equal chance at any benefits, such as company trips, as the guy next to you which is a huge plus that this company does not work on the old seniority system.

    Cons

    There were times when it felt like you had to hangout with the team after a long day of work when the only thing on your mind was sleep and or not spending money on going out food. But really that is the only downside, and you can still decline the going out offer I would suppose. Not really a Con, but keep in mind that your outlook will shape your perception and success. Having a poor attitude or not giving it your all will affect your performance (Though that can be said about any job in reality) because this a personal success driven company (again no seniority bias here)

    I worked at Zengo & Co

    Pros

    There are no pros that will ultimately benefit you. Trust me.

    Cons

    Its a pyramid scheme. They sell government provided phones to seemingly lower income people by approaching them in the streets of the downtown area. You'll be walking around all day trying to get people to sign up for this. Then you'll get promoted to hire more people to follow out this scam. During you're second "interview" you'll go out on the streets with them to see what it's like and try your hand at it I.e. Work for free which is illegal. Google Zengo & Co scams.

    Zengo & Co Response

    January 26, 2016Manager

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I’m sorry to see that you didn’t enjoy your time with us, however I would like to clarify we are not a pyramid scheme and that you may have misunderstood the work we do. As an event marketing company we set up pop up events and campaigns in popular retail venues, as these campaigns are static, I’m a little confused as to why you had to walk around all day. Also, out second stage of interview is strictly an observation day which allows potential contractors the opportunity to experience the work we do and make an informed decision as to whether to work with us. We do not require participants to ‘work’ on these days, and there is no obligation to even attend these interviews. I hope this has helped to clear up some of the issues you raised, and we wish you the best of luck in the future.
