EMG Inc. Misleading Interview Process Denver, Colorado
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: It's True-Smart Circle International Empire Marketing Group Inc (Denver), Valor Marketing (Phoenix), and a branch in Milwaukee
EMG Inc. is misleading with incompetent recruiting practices. In my first interview, my interviewer Brandon explained that the company markets products from Sears and Home Depot. He asked me what I look for in a company and I told him I was looking for a salary position with benefits. They called me back later in the day for a second interview where I get to job shadow them for 3 hours.
On the day of my second interview, I signed a contract agreeing that I would not get paid or recieve any benefits. There was not a spot to fill an emergency contact information in case an accident occurred. I met Mallory, the person I was going to job shadow. I got into her car and we drove to the field area but I wasn't sure if the area was going to be commercial or residential.
While we drove, she asked me alot of questions about what I know about marketing and the company. She kept emphazising the growth of the company and how they were looking for people with management potential. She explained how everybody starts out at the bottom and work their way up earning only commission pay. Once we got to our destination, I knew this position wasn't for me. We were in a nieghborhood and Mallory asked me if I would be comfortable selling door-to-door. I told her no because I already done this with another company. Both of us were glad we got this cleared up before we both wasted our time and she drove me back to the office immediately.
As we drove back, I asked her how long she has been with the company and she said just a month. Wow, just a month and she's part of the recruiting process already. A newbie who only been with the company for a month, posing as an expert, and participating in the recruiting process is shocking. The job shadow did not last more than 30 minutes.
From my interview experience, I can honestly say EMG Inc. is misleading with incompetence. I do not know if this company is a scam because I have not been with the company long enough to know for sure. Brandon, whom I first interviewed, was not straightforward with me in explaining that the entry-level position was 100% commission based through door-to-door sales. If he and company policies would been blunt with me in the first place, Mallory and I would not have wasted our time.
Futhermore, their website is misleading. Having read their website, they seem to be this sophisticated innovative company with unique marketing strategies but in reality, they are just the traditional typical door-to-door marketing company. In my opinion, any company with a fast track to management is highly deceitful.
