so i called and set up an interview which i quickly noticed was alot different then the interviews i have been on in the past. The building was cramped and located on the side of a Pocket-N-Stuff sandwich shop. I was suprised at how fast the lst interview process lasted maybe 5mins at the most, the wait to be interviewed last longer than the entire process. And i was told that i was sceduled for the 2nd interview the next day at 7pm til 9pm at nite. I showed up promptly trying to keep an optimistic attitude and to my dismay there were all sorts of people professional business types, middle age women and men, some appeared to be fresh out of high school.
During the 2nd interview we were advised to take notes and it went a little like this:
Larry Hahn- President & founder
Kerry Brunson- Divisional Manager
J.D Smith- Regional Manager
Owners of G.M.C
Curtis Culpepper- and the guy who did the interviews
Celese Rosas- the pregnant receptionist/ babymama/ girlfriend
no in home sales
no kits adn training program fees
4 or 5 new locations
60 to 90 day learning process
company was losing money so we would be opening up business and gaining profits
once learning process complete responsible for
open and closing the office
over see staff between the ages of 18-24yr
responsible for operation running smoothly
and therefore the whole thing was scripted curtis culpepper read from a typed packet of paper. while using various techniques to lie about the profit we would be making and the long term careers we would have 3-5yrs. he did take notice to mention that we would see some bad things about the company and gave us fake websites to refer to:
i was told the business was founded in 1794 by larry hahn in atlanta georgia who appartently was some sort of multi-billionaire that nobody has ever heard of and went on to brag about all sorts of money the employees and have. he even had the adosity to show us fake pictures of mercedes when i took note that there were no cars parked around the business or parking lots.
