As I scanned the Sun-Sentinel newspaper I came across an ad that read "Customer Service Manager Position" 3rd Largest Distributor. Entry Level Management Position, Will Train. $40k 1st Year Guaranteed plus benefits.
Being out of work this sounded like the perfect job!!! I went to the interview last week and was interviewed by Ken Wulwick, Vice President. When I walked in I was appalled at the stench of cigarette smoke INSIDE the office and the sound of blasting music in the waiting room. The waiting room was very small and somewhat dirty looking. The only signs on the outside of the building were signs that red "Now Hiring!!! Acquire within!!!
After a slew of questions fired at me in less than 10 minutes he instructed me to call back later that evening. When I did he congratulated me and said I made it to the second interview. I was so excited!! So when I showed up on Saturday I noticed 28 other applicants there for the "2nd interview" as well. This struck me as odd.
So, after waiting there for 45 minutes they finally called us in the back where we were seated in yet another very small room where Bob Coffey, President was our instructor for the next 4 hours. He proceeded to give us the history of purfume, the company, himself, the difference between an employee and employer, ect...... He also assured us that there would be no investment required and that this was not a MLM or "Pyramid Scheme" and that WE WOULD NOT HAVE TO SELL TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY. It was very motivating and inspiring. I bought it!!!!! I left a $20.00 deposit for a backgtound check and was excited to show up on Monday.
Monday comes and a slew of people are outside again and huddled in the small waiting room. After yet waiting another 45 minutes we finally get the show on the road. Bob Coffey, Chantel Coffey and Ken Wulwick pump us up full of motivatin, rah, rah, rah!!!! At the end of the day we are released at around 2:30pm and before letting us go they lay the big one on us.
We must sell a minimum of 10 bottles of purfume to friends, family and associates. We would then be paid $75.00 WHAT!!!???
After going home I did a search of this company and found that CBK International, Inc. is NOT INCORPORATED IN FLORIDA EVEN THOUGH THEY USE INC. AT THE END OF THEIR NAME. Also, they are moving locations again even though they have only been at that location for 3 weeks!!!
BEWARE JOB SEEKEERS!!!! THIS IS PURFUME PEDDLING, NOT A TRUE MANAGEMENT POSITION!!! WHEN AND IF YOU DO GET YOUR OWN LOCATION AS PROMISED YOU WILL BE DOING THE SAME THING, HIRING PEOPLE WHO ANSWER CLASSIFIED ADS AND TELLING THEM THEY TO WILL BE MANAGERS BUT IN FACT THEY WILL JUST BE FREE LABOR TO YOU!!!
