So I look on craigslist for the current openings and I see the same ad we all saw about the management position with the paid training, 40k salary, benefits, etc.
I show up and the music is blasting, there are 10-15 people waiting in between two rooms as they call out names. People go in and are out in 5 minutes. This all seemed odd but hey, the times are rough and a jobs a job.... right?
I get into the interview and I am asked what word I would best use to describe myself, where I'm from and a quick spill about my personality - No questions regarding my resume or the positions I held before or anything regarding my skills or experience. I am then told to call back that afternoon to see if I got the job.
I called back and am congratulated about making it to the 2nd interview. I show up the next day and am placed in a room full of people. A man by the name of Curtis Sharrod claiming to be "one of the Presidents" gives a curse word-ladden presentation about how he is now rich by "opening offices" all over the country by "distributing" rendition perfumes.....
I thought it was a bunch of crap but whatever, management position (I have extensive management experience) I'm thinking entails managing the "distribution center" or "office" that would eventually be opened, after all they claim to be an expanding company in their ad. We then are told that training begins Monday....
I show up Monday and notice that most of the people that had been called out before the "cream of the crop" was chosen for the "position" all came back, everyone it seemed got the job... All this was already pointing to one thing - scam. No info on the internet, business cards, logo, nothing.
The people in the room are shaking their asses to the loud music and with all their motivational crap they encourage it. The main trainer, Masambla keeps up the hyping of the company and how his boss is a multi-millionaire telling us stories about her buying $14,000 pairs of shoes on a regular basis, elaborate tales of success.
Then the competition comes...... sell as many bottles as you can.... 10 bottles=$50.00 bonus 20 bottles=$100 bonus and a week or two off the training....... So at this point it all came into clear view. I didnt return the next day but kept in touch with a guy who like an idiot went out and sold bottles that night. I was told the following day they were split into groups of 4 to go sell perfumes to mall goers, approaching strangers in the parking lots of Walmarts, Home Depots, Gas Stations, and Shopping Centers with cheap perfume at $25 bucks a bottle.
Do not fall for this scam. They use the name PDR in Doral, FL and claim to have opened a new "office" by the name of Success, Inc in Kendall, FL.
