Do Not even bother with this company. Heres the deal: Youre desperate for a job right? Looking on craigslist, or in the paper, yeah? You will see an advertisement for a company that doesnt give any explination of who they are, what they do, or what the job entails. Only that they're an expanding company looking for 18-25 "guys and gals" to fill open positions, and that entry level management is available. they dont give an email, name, or anything just a phone number. You call this phone number and they set you up with a group interview, then they call you back the same day and say to come in the next day for a second interview, that it will be 2-3 hrs long, and to bring pen and paper. So you go to the interview. they tell you this rags to riches success story about the company's founder Larry Hahn, and they have you write pages and pages of notes. Then, they tell you that you got the job. You go home excited, tell your significant other about it... And then if he/she is suspicious and untrusting of everything like I was, your significant other digs into the internet a bit, and has to tell you that Larry Hahn is a conman who's been bouncing from state to state, and has even been taken to court.
Here is the run down, same thing Larry Hahn has done in Atlanta, Illinois, and Texas, and Now California (maybe even other states) * Puts a non specific ad in the paper / wanted listings for entry level management position open in expanding company * Group interviews people, promising $30-40k/yr salary and benefits * Calls back same day and invites you to second interview * Has no literature to give, makes you write down all notes in your own handwriting * Promises 6-8 weeks of paid training to teach you everything you need to know, and states that your training salary depends on how fast you progress * Promises to have your own store opened for you upon completion of training, where you will be the manager and have sales associates beneath you * Remains very vague and evasive about what kind of store, what product, and doesn't mention any stores they currently have open (because there are none)
THEN according to what I've read on the internet: You find out there is no $30-40k/yr salary, it's commission only You find out there is no store, that you're supposed to run around hawking things in parking lots etc You find out there are no benefits You find out that all that CEO Management aka WPI aka DAB Management aka Scentura is... Is a stupid scamming pyramid scheme Don't believe me? Google "CEO Management Hayward, CA" and read what comes up, you will see Larry Hahn mentioned as the CEO and founder, which is who my boyfriend was told about in his interview. THEN if you google Larry Hahn you'll learn about his most recent scams with his company called Scentura... And all of this reading, each scenario is pretty much the same from the recruitment, to the training, to the promises, and the end result. Do yourselves a favor, as a general rule dont apply to ANY job that A) states they're looking for more than one person, B) doesn't describe the job or anything about the company, and C) wants you to apply by phone only by R
