I have found other reports concerning aaa Marketing, 3 A Marketing they are now using on new emails, Advantage Promotions and the list goes on. I also recieved the same email I have seen posted about finding my resume on monster.com and was to call within 48 hours to schedule an interview for today. I drove 3 hours to Charlotte to be sent to the 12th floor of the South Park Towers to wait 25 minutes for the receptionist to tell me to go down to the 11th floor to suite 1150 and fill out a paper that was on the desk. The girl who came out to interview me was name Lindsay/Lyndsay she was very tall, slender, and had blonde hair.
The office where the interview was held was very bare bones with some posters laying around and a few posters in a filling cabinet along with the black folders. She went on about the company and what they do and I will say they make it sound very good. She is very convincing with her iphone, ipad, and macbook all laid out on the desk in an attempt to make it look legit. I had not had adequate time to research the company prior due to the fast process of email/call/interview and the fact the email I received said 3 A Marketing and this looks like a new AKA they are using. I did not become suspicious until I left with a fold and there big sports posters.
She acts as though she is just giving you the card for "Cameron Morrisson" that you are supposed to do a phone interview with on the next business day but underneath that she stacks "fill in the blank" account manager cards. Then under further inspection of the folder I noticed order forms and outdated scripts with different company names on all of them. This is how I found other rip off reports for Advantage Marketing and so forth. The posters I received are of very poor quailty if they supposedly have a whole "graphics design team" because my 4 year old could tell you that they UNC and Virginia Tech Logos are incorrect and he could also create a better poster than the ones I was given.
If I would have seen these during the interview I would have known better than to go through the entire process. They show you some no name highschool poster. I give them credit that they do there research in knowing names of local semi-sports teams from VA to NC and even some local businesses. After seeing the other reports I am convinced this is a total SCAM! I can't believe that they have been getting away with this for so long!
As anothe post stated the college team posters dont even have the NCAA logo on them which is required! I don't know how they sleep at night trying to scam people that have been searching for jobs for so long in this horrible economy! There is truly a special place in HELL for people like this and I am appauld that nothing has ever been done about this! My call to Mr Morrisson is supposed to take place next week so that's one call he will not recieve because I can't afford to go on a wild goose chase!
One last name to mention the email I recieved came from:
