Not even an hour later I got a call for a 2nd round interview. I was informed the 2nd round interview consisted of following around an account manager so i was like whatever cool. We go out for like 8 hours barging into peoples stores annoying them asking them for their phone bills. Out of seeing maybe 70 businesses maybe 2 people showed us their phone bill.
What Marketing Sessions tries to do is switch people from AT&T to SBC because MKTG Sessions is affiliated with Cydcor and SBC. So basically they go in telling these innocent people oh yeah switch to SBC its way cheaper, but forget to disclose many hidden fees where inturn the person's bill comes out to be more than it was with AT&T.
So I took the job w them got awesome promises saying yeah in the 1st 2 weeks u make $400-$600 then u become a leader and make $700-$1000 then asst mgr and so on. Basically what they try to instill is you can become an owner in a year and make 6 figures. So i was like $600 that sounds good.
They tell you it takes to weeks to get your first check. Oh then its not 2 but 3 then not 3 then 4. I was there for 5 weeks until i got my first check. Its not worth it. You drive around all day wasting ure gas, talking to people who dont want anything to do w u, work 10, 11, 12 hrs walk miles for what?... to be paid commission.
They try to break down how you get paid and they make it seem so great. I was supposed to make $500 but got paid $150 becuase my apps got rejected supposedly, when while i made this money a leader was watching what i was doing and gave the ok. Michael holds meetingss at 7am once a week and talks about how much money he makes and other bullshit.
Its not a marketing firm you are a door 2 door salesman, it lokks like a professional environment but people are swearing in the office and shit. There were many days when i worked 10hrs didnt switch any1 over to sbc or retain customers so i made nothing. ITS LIKE A CULT THERE.
Every morning u go u have to do pitches to each other for an hour then you play games like scategories. PEOPLE TALK DOWN TO U THERE. And what came from it all lack of sleep , no time to eat, fights w the girlfriend, worrying about money, BROKEN PROMISES, ITS SUCH A SCAM.
Then u go downtown for corporate training which is paid, YEAH NEVER SAW THAT MONEY $200. I swear people who work their have no lives you get to work at 7am and dont live till 7pm, then after working 10, 11, 12 hours they host team nights every thursday and if u dont show up they get pissed. I had my leader calling me all the time for no apparent reason.
They brainwash people there luckly i got fed up w the bullshit and left. Typical day there for an entry level was arrive at 8am leave at 6:30 pm. Alright I can go on for hours about mistreatment there the moral here is MICHAEL SESSIONS IS A CON ARTIST, MKTG SESSIONS IS A SCAM, INNOCENT PEOPLE HAVE THERE PHONE BILLS BECOME MORE EXPENSIVE DUE TO BROKEN PROMISES. Its ridiculous take a look around everyday theres always 5 people leaving and 10 getting hired.
