A simple google search of "cydcor scam" will yield valuable results, as many are narratives of past interviewees that have been compelled to investigate as I have.  You'll find many fake business names that are affiliated with the "umbrella company", as I like to call it, Cydcor (the business heading all these scam businesses).  All scams/businesses affiliated or working with Cydcor use the familiar multi-level marketing recruiting/inspiring tactics, which are used to create what they refer to as "atmosphere" to keep their employees happy, or to the greatest degree possible.  All businesses that link with Cydcor have a receptionist, which is in on the scam, and she will always have too high of a title for being a simple receptionist.  An immediate red flag, but not conclusive to the fact that the business is a scam quite yet.  What Cydcor's scam businesses refer to as an "owner"he or she is the one actually running the businesses'/location's scam. [continued below]....
They're the one making the most money at the location, and all they're worried about is paying off google/yahoo/seperate PR firms to make that location/business appear legit.  Example, try googling "Fiducia Marketing" (a scam I was lead into and originally applied for earlier this week, before attempting to expose the scam) vs. "Fiducia Marketing scam"; The results will be drastically different.  

The one heading Fiducia Marketing the ownerhis name is Cara Pizzurro, if that is in fact her real name.  However, she does have a Facebook account, as does FiducFiducia marketing actually CONTACTED ME via e-mail regarding management positions, but it was all a lie (soon to be explained, if not already).  

They said they found my resume on careerbuilder.com, monster.com, indeed.com, or similar sites (a possibility, most certainly).  Regarding the interview processthe lobby was packed with applicants at the luxurious Troy location, who were promised management positions after rising through the scheme, which was really DOOR-TO-DOOR SALES selling energy/gas...however, I had also heard they've sold AT&T U-VERSE, but I cannot PERSONALLY attest to this, and that's the only "hear/say" I've felt compelled to list within this report.

99.9% of soon to be "Account Managers" are really door-to-door sales employees that have been lied to, so they quit; in the end, they actually LOSE money or are not compensated based on their performance (it's an already SATURATED market, it's not what they signed up for, no benefits, no gas compensation, NOTHING...it's all "bs").  Regardless, let's get back to the office & interview process, shall we?

If there ever was to be a problem with one of the "hire-ees", there was always loud hip music blasting in the lobby to make the office APPEAR to be a fun place to work for new recruits, but also used to drown out any potential dissonance in the office, should it arise during the interview processes or from current employees realizing the whole thing is a scam, and trying to expose the company.

These businesses, from what I've researched, are technically legal, as multi-level marketing businesses differ from Pyramid/Ponzi Schemes in only one way: Ponzi/Pyramid Schemes scam employees "on the bottom", who do the door-to-door sales, by promising to pay by HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS/POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES THEY RECRUIT, who would also be doing door-to-door sales, ill informed.  Multi-level marketing businesses OPERATE IN THE SAME FASHION, and are just as shady and are just as much of a scam, but they "pay" (or say they will) by actually selling legit product

On a side note, don't "Fiducia Marketing" management ads, e-mails, and employment opportunities in general that flash how much the employees are making (which are all lies, persuaded by the "owner" of the location to tell new recruits) & selling door-to-door as a slave getting ripped off so the "guys on top" can make all the money sound COMPLETELY DIFFERENT?!?!?!?  In this sense, we are dealing with potentially hundreds of Cydcor businesses around the country that are all operating and scamming in a pyramid scheme-style "business", but are operating on the grey-area of the law (from what I've learned so far).  

All scams/businesses say there are other offices by the same name across the country.  I have included what I believe, thus far, is relevant to spark interest into a FULL FLEDGED INVESTIGATION, but probably not every bit of contact info I SHOULD HAVE provided...and INDEED I have more information, such as their personal Facebook account URLs and other pertinent information to illustrate the complexity of web design used to fool the average business applicant.  If I can be of any more assistance, please let me know.  I too almost got scammed byFiducia Marketing, having gone through their 3 day/3 interview process and almost taking the "job."  I look forward to exposing this shady business practice to save others, like myself, that are fresh out of college looking to better ourselves & our future.  I thank you ALL for your time.  Best of luck on THE REAL job search ;)

This no way sounds like a scam for quite a few reasons. For starters, the fact that they are working with real fortune 100-500 companies selling an actual product or service is something you wouldn"t find in a multi-level marketing scheme. Those Ponzi schemes get paid off recruits which in this situation reps or account managers are paid for each product or service they sell, compensated exactly like the reps who work directly under said companies. However, these companies hire sub contractors/ third party vendors to sell their products or sevrices in a market that these "owners" run. Another reason this is unlike a pyramid scheme is because said "pyramid" would never collapse this is a merit based business so there will be pople who get promoted out to ownership and run outside deals for Cydcor clients in different markets but there will always be a need for face-to-face sales this company will never go out of business or collaspe. You can however be compensated for health insurance just not gas or meals but they can be written off on your taxes, legally. Most people get scorned or don't get the most out of the opportunity and the only way to make them feel better is to lash out or it could simply be a misunderstanding however, this is not a scam!

It is ignorant to imply a scam simply because you were not clear on what the position was.  Many marketing companies leave their ads vague so that people will come for an interview and decide for themselves after seeing what they do.  This is done so newbies come in with an open mind, instead of preconceived notions about direct marketing.

AT&T hires these companies to do just that, direct marketing.  The companies are real, they pay their employees (some pay very well), and many people do move up to making decent money.  I know, because I am one of those individuals.

So, just because it was not what you expected and/or you did not enjoy your experience does not make it a scam.  The customers get their services (legitamately), the employees get paid, and AT&T gets their penetration.  So how can it possibly be a scam?

Glad I could clear that up for you.
