MID AMERICA (Maryland Heights) and J and W (on North Lindberg 314-831-2616), are pyramid scams. You should RUN --- NOT WALK FROM THESE COMPANIES OR WHAT EVER NAME THEIR RUNNING UNDER AT THAT TIME. You can NOT make money from working at their companies! If anything, you lose money.
I have done extensive research on how these perfume companies operate, and they have a history of complaints all over the counry. This is a pyramid scam and what makes this a pyramid scam is they run ads in the newspaper luring kids (late teens, early 20's) to sell FAKE perfume, and telling them they will be promoted to management.
Here's the kicker though - there is ONLY ONE POSITION and it's peddling this FAKE perfume on parking lots such as Wal-Mart or Taco Bell until the manager kicks you off the lot. There is NO MANAGEMENT POSTION!!! In order to get into "management," you have to pay for your own rent, and run the same ads you just applied for. Feel Dumb...? Don't...! That's part of their scam!
I encourge anyone who responds to their ad to call either the newspaper, and ask to speak to a superviser and explain the situation. The thing about this scam is that if the ad doesn't run in the newspaper, their whole pyramid scam collapses. The more complaints the newspaper receives from this perfume scam, the more likey they are to watch their ads before they print.
The following ad ran in the St. Louis Suburban Journals:

Again, please STAY AWAY from these FAKE perfume companies. And if you see their ad, call the newspaper, ask to speak to a superviser to have their ad pulled from the paper. That is the only way to shut the scam down.
