SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I know this website is frequently used in Portland, Oregon. I know about 75-80% of potential candidates I hired researched the company on this website. As a former Hiring Manager for Altig International in the Portland, Oregon office I want to alert potential candidates on a few things. Over 2 weeks ago our complete Hiring Manager team walked out of the Portland office. Over two months ago the company cut Salaries of the Hiring Manager by 60%. We continued to work for the company and continued to call resumes that we attained from a Resume Management System.

What will happen is this company will contact you without looking at your resume. They just have a phone number list and will call anyone. It doesnt matter what your experience, age or job background is. What is going to happen is they will follow a well thought out script and have you come into an interview. The interview will be very brief and then you will enter a room with other candidates. You will go thru an orientation and at the end you will meet with the Hiring Manager 1 on 1. At that point you will be alerted that you will have to enroll in insurance school and pay roughly $450-$500 dollars. THEN THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU MUST PAY A $212 ADMINISTRATION FEE. They say the admin fee covers all materials and startup kits. IN REALITY, THE HIRING MANAGER WORKS OFF OF COMMISSION AND RECEIVES THE $212 DOLLARS. So that has the hiring manager hiring anybody and everybody. They will then set you up for a final interview with the Regional Manager Roger Fung. He will play a mind game in the interview asking "why should i hire you." He will then try to take the job away from you so you will appreciate it. Its all a set up.

In reality if a Dog walked in with $212 they would hire the dog. I want all perspective candidates to know that you $212 goes right into the pocket of the individual that hires you. Very unethical. Who wants to work for a company that mass hires and is not equipped to train you. I know this because Roger will sit back in his office and play on the internet as his new insurance agents videotape their presentations over and over again. They tell you its about 4-6 weeks before you draw your first paycheck. In reality. I was there for over 11 months and it will take you in the "Portland Office about 3 months." Be very careful when they tell you they provide you with 150 leads a week. You will receive leads at the beginning but then will be asked for referrals to keep your business going. Once again be careful in your process with this company as you are only a number.

AUTHOR: Crystal - (U.S.A.)

Michael,



I was recently contacted by Altig and have attended the "2nd interview" presentation, supposed to get a call this afternoon to see if I am "one of the chosen" to come back for a hire interview. While the fact that the administrative fee is really a commision for the hiring manager does seem shady, can you tell me any more about the actual job itself? I know of someone from highschool who works for this company who is doing very well for himself. Is this typical, or do most individuals hired not see very much profit? I have also heard from another Ripoff Report that 80-hr work weeks are required. Can you tell me if there is any truth to this? I am in MN, so I'm not really sure if they would have the same practices as the Canadian offices that most reports I have seen come from.



Any additional info you might have would be greatly appreciated.



Thank you for your time.
