I received a phone call from "Bethany" at Oldham Group AIL. I was told my resume was found online and that she wanted to have me interviewed for either an Benefits Administrator or Management position.

When I asked for more details, Bethany told me that the position deals "with benefits for labor union members". With Wichita being a big aircraft town, this sounded plausible. However, she wasn't able to give me more information and said her hiring manager could explain it much better than her - first red flag. The human resources individual who contacts you should be able to thoroughly explain the position(s). She also never said what AIL stood for. When I saw complaints online, I rationalized maybe AIL didn't stand for American Income Life.  She told me that my interview would be at 10AM with  "Tina".

After confirming an interview date for Wednesday March 7, 2012 I received an email from "Roger Smith" a couple of days before my interview. The email said I was being contacted through email because American Income Life hadn't been able to set up an interview with me - already had an interview - 2nd red flag.

The interview was in the Co-Bank building in town. When I get to the interview, I see many people walking out less than a minute apart. I tried to reasure myself that maybe they worked there.

I get into the AIL office and the room in full of people waiting for an interview. At the front desk, everyone has signed up with their interview time of 10AM with Tina - just as I was told.

I was asked if I had my resume and was given a clipboard that asked for my "birth name" and about if I had committed any crimes. I sat down and saw each person get called by a different interviewer - most were not interviewed with "Tina". Each person was gone a few minutes before they walked out with a folder.

However "Tina" was one of there interviewers. She introduced herself to the individuals she did "interview".  I noticed for a Hiring Manager, "Tina" must not have been able to afford dental work as she had missing teeth.

I gave the clipboard back to the receptionist (with no personal information on it that they wouldn't already have from my online resume) and left.

Do yourself a favor and look up the company before you interview with them. I did this the night before my interview and was just too hopeful that this was a different company.

I have no idea what happened in the few minutes  that each person was interviewed (not much could have happened in that time). I also didn't want to find out and didn't want to give personal information on the form given to me.

Pay attention to red flags and get out as soon as you can!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Fine and Good but Why Hire This way?

AUTHOR: Paralegal711 - ()

I have concerns with ANY company that is vague about a possible employment opportunity. I too noticed the sales pitch approach used to attempt to have me commit to an interview. My thoughts are:  if this is such an effective tool for hiring and this was an awesome company and opportunity, why is it necessary to con and/or trick anyone to attend your recruitment drive? The "Open Truth" works much better for most people. I will be willing to comment after my "Interview" experience next week. Is this the best way to get quality employees or are you just trying to throw as many people against the wall in the hope that some actually stick? It is sad that it appears to be a numbers game instead of an employment opportunity. Get time commitments from as many as you can and see what remains after the dust settles is truly an "UGLY" approach. Most of these people are serious and need employment to provide for their families.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Do You Want A Job?

AUTHOR: AIL Receptionist - ()

I am currently employed with AIL and I just want to set the record straight.  Obviously we are a business and would not be listed as such with the Better Business Bureau.  If all the things that were put online about this company were true...do you think we would still have a company?  Most of these people complaining are ones that unfortunately were not hired for whatever reason.  It does not take 30 minutes to an hour to know whether the person the hiring manager will meets will be a good fit for the company...he usually knows within the first few minutes.  This is why some people leave after a few minutes after meeting with one of the hiring managers.  So yes, when the appointment setters call to schedule the interview we may schedule you with one manager, but you may meet with another to save everyone time.  It's not to deceive you!  So if you are really interested in getting paid for the work you do, come down for an interview and you can judge for yourself.  Also others that are interested in what we do you can go on Tourchmark and/or the Better Business Bureau(bbb.org) and look for AIL also known as American Income Life and look at our ratings.  Please stop listening to all the disgruntled people that did not get hired.  Belive me there is a reason!
