Unfortunately I went through a Day and a half of trials. I was hesitant throughout the entire interview process because i've been on the other end of the interview and I know what people ask and don't ask. While Larry is very assertive and Lindsey is coy and very minimal with her responses it helped me when I asked every question even it was a stupid question.
Larry started me off with a trial day and always asked how many sales I could close on. I have a very good closing ratio and I was near to closing quite a few. As they say "that little hair on my neck" was sticking up and I couldn't believe it was this easy.
It was time to start the hiring process and I was to call a Liza at HR to get on payroll and this morning I was supposed to do it. Something told me not to do it just yet. So I waited and came back home to sit at the computer and follow up with my traffic. [continued below]....
..... Then I went to linked in because by now everyone who is a professional is on there to network with people. The Larry O'Brien scam came up next to the name Lindsey.
Regus Executive suites was the building I interviewed at and I contacted them but they had no idea what was going on. They just rent rooms out like hotel rooms and people can interview for whatever they want. I have also followed up with the TWC in Texas with their fraud division to see what can be done. This is unbelievable and i'm glad that I only did this for a day and a half. Had this been two weeks and no check I would have been devastated. I hope that my response helps other people. Thanks for Rip Off Report for helping me understand what was going on.
If you come across, Lindsey, Larry, or Robin stay away. This all happened because I posted my resume on Monster.com and I was forewarned by a friend that these jobs are "jokes" and I should have listened.
Things you should look out for because I'm not sure anyone is listing signs:
1. Lindsey in a office space with just no preparations.
2. She should have your resume (they ask you to provide one, i'm sure it's so that they can act as though they are screening your employment history in that moment).
3. Larry O'Brien's North Eastern twang.
4. Ask all the questions that come to your mind, even if they sound stupid. "I asked "in any event a product is misprinted who gets the brunt of the clients complaint". Larry said, "don't worry once you make the sale we have people who can resolve that conflict".
