MKTG Complaint - Working with 'mktg' a true nightmare
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Hey folks here is some information you may want to be informed of before doing this "Nintendo Promotion" for 'Mktg'
Many people where hired to do this promotion; 35 malls to be exact. the training was in Milwaukee, WI from November 1st until November 4th 2009.

At training they put many people under the bus; ALL people in charge were "FEMALE" an No men. 99% of the managers were caucasian race. Out of ALL Managers only 3 of the managers were African American.
They hired people with out Nintendo experience and expected ALL MANAGERS to remember everything that was taught in training. They "MKTG" said that whom ever finished the "Training first" would actually receive a prize; they picked someone who worked with MKTG prior and only took the test the day before training, not like 99% of the other individuals.
I have to say I have worked with hundreds of people and these Regional Managers were rude and ignorant. The one in charge of South East was only 23 years old; her name is Steffany Lopez.
My personal story:
When I arrived at the training site a camera was put on the table where we were all seated. the Manager next to me put mine on the floor so we had room to write. Well somehow Steffany told me to grab my manual before leaving training so I did. I didn't realize my camera was gone until the following evening. I approched one of the regionals. Within a second of me informing her that ALL OTher managers were informed about this (Without them speaking about it). I got the hotel involved. The regionals said they would announce it to all managers the following day. The following day (Wends) I asked if I could make the annoucement and I was told "NO" because they didn't want to make everyone in a panic and cause a scene. I was also informed that all regionals asked their employees of the camera was found but indeed I found out never did. I asked several employees on my own and nobody was aware of the missing camera.
Once training was over everyone was given a "Nintendo DSI" except me. I was informed that since I lost the "Camera" I wasn't going to be issued any company assets. Meanwhile they said I would still have a job and wanted me to work on preperation (Learning games etc) + Work on the schedule....)... I was assured the stuff would be mailed to me...
Soon as I touched down I received a phone call saying I was "TERMINATED" from the Nintendo project.
Caution: working for 'mktg' has been a nightmare; they are backstabbers and will treat people like $hit. If they do not like what you look like (apperance), they do not think you learned enough they won't tell you to your face - they will terminate you when you leave by phone (HR DEPT).
Some of the managers had to do local training soon as they returned back from WI. The hotel they picked was in the middle of BFE. The Regionals had transportation but nobody else did. Two of the regionals were even on my flight but made me take the airport shuttle.
