Join our team

We are looking for motivated and ambitious teammates.

Why You’ll Love Working With Us

Among the team, we recently started describing the company as a 40-year-old start-up. It seems to encapsulate what we are doing here at EMG in a way that nothing else can. We were founded on the idea of making connections between small businesses and their clients in our community. That mission continues today, but with a much broader reach.

Today we’re making connections across Middle Tennessee, across North Alabama, and across the country. We’re obsessed (in the best way) with our clients’ successes, regardless of what city they’re in. We expect the best of ourselves and our teammates. We’re constantly innovating to provide better products and better services to our clients. We work together, and we each own our part of the process. If that sounds like you… we want you on our team.

Our Employees Make Us Great!

“I was apprehensive before applying for the position. I only had experience working in gift sales. I knew nothing about advertising. EMG put me through paid training and let me watch other sales reps. That was [over] 10 years ago! When a business tells me “working with you is a blessing,” I can’t help but smile every time.”

– Sandra Thomas

“When I first started working with Exchange Media Group, the extensive training was the most impressive part. It allows everyone on the team, no matter where we came from, to be the best we can be. As an employee, I love that our clients become our family. We’re local, so we can really make a connection with them.”

– Sissy Smith

“Coming from many years in the corporate world, it felt like everything was about business only–but there is more to it than that. Working at Exchange Media Group was a breath of fresh air. It showed me that business is really about people, the clients, and making their life better. We have a team of talented people who are client-obsessed and work toward excellence every day.”

– Clinton George

Our Principles

Over the past 40 years, we’ve built an environment for businesses and employees to grow. We use five core principles to guide us as a company.


Always focus on what will make the client’s life better. The client being happy comes before profit. We should make money from providing value to our clients. The client is always right, even if we disagree with them. Mentor clients on solutions to their situations rather than saying we can’t do something. Be a problem solver for our clients. Our clients should feel doing business with us is simple. We need to be obsessed with understanding what our clients’ customers need.

Respect Others

Every individual has experienced life through their own personal lens. Seek first to understand others before being understood. Always show empathy to others. Treat everyone the way they want to be treated. We were all created differently and uniquely. You’ll not always agree with team members on the best path forward. However, when we set a direction, we must work as a team.

Expect Excellence

Expect the highest standards from yourself every day. Hold your teammates accountable for the same discipline. Don’t cut corners with your work. We expect to be the best in the world at what we do. Don’t settle for average. Our products should make a difference in our clients’ lives. You should pay attention to every detail.

Take Ownership

You control your attitude, which controls your destiny. You are responsible for your success. Your success will come through hard work. Always maintain an attitude of gratitude. Focus on where you can make a difference. Be at peace with events outside your control. We accept mistakes will be made. Own them, learn, and move forward.

Continuously Improve

The world is always changing. You need to be continually learning. Strive each day to get better at your job. Go deep on subjects to fully understand them. Be open-minded to other ideas. Always be looking for opportunities to improve yourself and our products. Don’t be afraid to take chances on ideas. Most decisions are reversible. Follow processes and continually refine them. 1% improvement each day equals 37x annual improvement.
