G.C.O Advertising, LLC Promised advertising job, delivered Kirby pyramid scheme unpaid job Bedford New Hampshire
I found a posting with GCO LLC on indeed.com and saw an advertising company opportunity. Sent my resume via ZipRecruiter and was contacted for an interview within minutes. Literally, minutes. I was called to an interview in Bedford the next day and the interview lasted three minutes. I was asked not one question and offered the position later that day in a phone call. None of my refrences were checked. I was told that there would be three days of unpaid training about "our product" in Concord at L & R Merchandising. I arrived at L & R to find that I needed to fill out an application again and give all of my personal information again. I needed five personal refrences and they could not be professional refrences, turns out I would be forced to sell vaccuums to these people. We were told that we would all become independent dealers of Kirby Vaccuums, which was not anything to do with advertising and that is when I began to be skeptical. My goal was to sell the vacuum to 7 people over the weekend after the training, and get 100 names during the first week or I wouldn't get paid. After I discovered we would be selling Kirby Vaccuums, I left and asked for my application back. After two days of a run around, I was finally given the application back at a remote location undoubtably to prevent me from telling the other "trainees" of what I had discovered and that this was all just a pyramid scheme. I would never reccommend anyone to work at this agency or provide their personal information in such an insecure way. I am saddened that not many people will see this until after they hired by this ripoff company, a subsidiary of L & R Merchandising in Concord which has quite a lengthy ripoff report page.
