Job posting on craigslist read entry level management position, no experiences necessary, will train, new company to the area is expanding and needs managers. First interview was completely scripted and just about everybody gets accepted, second interview, again scripted, ( because I have copies of the papers they use ) is a group style interview which again everyone gets accepted. The following week is the first day of "the learning program" in which they preach about the products and bonuses you will earn in the learning program to speed through and get your office in 60 days, which you get to pick the location of your office, obviously is all made up! Pay scale 35k first year 45 second and profit sharing. THIS has been going on all over the country, I have seen videos on youtube of the exact same speeches and motivational pitches to get you started and excited. Then they have you memorize a script which is posted all over the internet as a scam under different business names but goes something like
"hey quick question for you what kind of fragrance do you wear? Issey miyaki? Ed Hardy? Cool Water? Check it out i work for a wholesale fragrance company and we have all the top designer fragrances up to 80% off, over at the departments stores it would cost you up to $120 but today its yours for only $25 FAIR ENOUGH?"
Then they take you out to the ghettos and popular store parking lots to go up to solicit to people getting in their vehicles and after 3 minutes you're in the car moving again because you cant solicit illegally without a permit or YOU WILL get arrested, cops are called all the time.
Lets back up to these designer fragrances they sell, they do smell good but it is a lie to say they are the brand name at wholesale pricing, they are RENDITIONS. which you will learn the hard way once you sell to your family and friends the first day and get the bottle and read the fine print on the bottom! Why lie, it smells good but its a remake! not the real deal.
Than after your first week of bullshit and maybe $75 pay they ask you to go out of town and solicit for 4 days and totally fill your head with you were double promoted this week garbage!
IT DOES NOT END. This cycle does not end. You were not one of the lucky 6-12 chosen to get your own office, they choose 6-12 people EVERY SINGLE WEEK. As soon as you're out "shadowing and learning" in the field, they new group is in the classroom hearing the EXACT SAME SPEECHES you did, and being told to pick a location and so forth.
DO NOT BE FOOLED. These people are incredibly likable, motivated, and are trying to make you feel encouraged and special but you are a pawn and they have hundreds of you go in and out their door every week, selling to friends and family, making them money for FREE, soliciting illegally, and quitting because either you REALIZE its a scam or you are broke from their lies! THEY ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF down and out people looking for work. What they are doing is immoral, as of now I haven't found anything illegal with it but they are soulless. You sign the paper saying you're an independent contractor, no refunds, and after the learning program you will get an office. They make sure you will not make it until then because its NOT REAL. and once you have signed those papers your actions are your own liabilities. Just ask yourself why does not one person have a last name? why is this new company to the area NOWHERE to be found online, or have a logo? or anything a NORMAL LEGIT business would have.
