This company posts regularly about entry level management positions with little to no experience necessary in their job ads via Careerbuilder, Craigslist, EmployFlorida and Indeed.com. I applied with this company about three weeks ago and received a call from this company about this position and scheduled an interview. However in doing plenty of research and trusting my deep gut instinct (which told me not to trust this company), I declined the interview. The reason I declined the interview were based on these red flag reasons:
1) The HR lady got a little snooty with me regarding the time and day to schedule an interview. Wanted to do it on a day and time that felt compfortable for me, she was pushy and insisted that I do it by this such day because they wanted to make the hiring decisions by this particular day.
2) The website information regarding the account executive position was different then what HR representative stated on the phone. Along with the possible compensation package.
3) Though the website looked professional I found it disturbing that did not give a bio regarding the leadership of the company or anyone from that particular branch office. Another thing disturbing was the photo quality of the members of the team. Pictures looked more like they were taken with either a cell phone camera or a low budget digital camera.
4) After doing more in depth research. There company description and hours of operations sounded very similar to a company named Cydcor. Cydcor has lots of complaints on Rip Off Report as well other complaint sites regarding their fishy door-to-door sales tactics and that they claim to do business with Fortune 500 companies.
5) LinkedIn account regarding International PSI, Inc. did not have a name of the management or leadership of the company either, no bio or background either. To their defense they did have members from HR on there with their pictures and background info respectively posted.
POTENTIAL JOB SEEKERS PLEASE BEWARE, DO EXTENSIVE RESEARCH REGARDING THE COMPANY AND USE PROFESSIONAL COMMON SENSE. DO NOT LET YOURSELF GET CONFUSED BETWEEN SELF DOUBT ABOUT THE JOB ITSELF AND NOT TRUSTING THE COMPANY. TRUST YOUR INTUITION AND DECLINE THE OFFER IF NECESSARY IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR BEING SCAMMED.
