Well I did hesitate to call them until this month (February). I finally called and asked if they were hiring and they told me yes and said it was for Human Resources, Management, Customer Service, Trainers, and set me up for an Interview the next day. Well since my brother is also unemployed I told him to call aswell and we both went together.

When I arrived there was loud music (VERY LOUD) and everyone was wearing jeans. I saw the that they had a old computer, and the phone from which they were answering calls was a ghetto looking metro pcs!!!!! The office did not show what the name of the company was called and the door just had a paper taped on to it that said the suite number.

I signed in and waited for a lady named KIm, or Antoinette to Interview me. I got Interviewed by Kim, I'll describe her being that their names change. She is a blond ghetto looking girl in her mid 20's. She looks like a trashy white girl lol- like slim shady's wife and what a coincidence his wifes name is kim too lol.... anyways she was nice like everyone else there. I never met antoinette but did see her she is an African American girl mid 20s also, big boned (bigger than Kim) and also nice. And the rceptionist, which was the girl setting up the interviews was African American skinny and tall, I didnt get her name though. There was other people there but I really didnt get to meet them.

The Interview with Kim was verrrrry quick she didnt tell me anything about the company, she just told me they were loooking for people to do genereal office duties, customer service, data entry, management. Also said the training lasts 2-4 weeks, asked me a couple of stupid questions and told me to call her two hours later. So I did an gues what they said; "Congratultions you have been selected to come back for a second Interview tomm at 1pm". My brother was also picked so we came back the next day. We were the first ppl there but then it became like a group of 20 in one little room. We were then taken to a bigger sized room with a lot of chairs. We were told by Kim to turn off cell phones, and to smile because the Boss was going to choose us based on if we looked interested and motivated. So we did as we were told and smiled. The Boss was yes Hester Williams; she is an African American woman who claims she is 36 yrs old, with two kids on is 6 and the other 18. she also said she make 300k in this business, and that she went to college ( i forget for what but she went) in a field that made money but that she was still broke, and also pulled the friends and family thing about being broke.

Ok so during her speech she made us take notes in a notebook they told us to bring. She told us that this wasnt a scam and there is no selling involved. She also said that for training we were going to get cash $200 weekly and
more than $200 if we went through a marketing stage. She sais that once the training is over we were going to be making $40k!!! thats were I was like ummmmm sounds too good to be true.

So after all her speech she said that she was going to call us one by one and ask some of us questions and others no. Some of the questions she asked was; why should i choose you, what are your good traits etc. When she got to my name she didnt ask me anything. I thought I wasnt going to get picked. She started sendng out ppl in groups and I was the last group (With my brother) but she didnt let us go she kept us and said congratulations I chose you guys because I saw motivation and I saw you guys were interested... and she told us that we start 02/09/09 @ 10am... but thanx to everyones comments Im not going.

*************they say the travel 10x a year to other offices, which supposedly we are going to be given the opportunity to get an office of our own aswell---------- A BUNCH OF HORSE s**t****************

#1 UPDATE Employee


AUTHOR: angelami2u - (Norway)

I've just been employed by Regional Management that is located in that same address in Pompano Beach. Hester Williams is now Hester Turner her daughter is 13 and son is 20. Her son's name is supposedly Jeffery and he now is helping her. He is very likable with a Jamie Foxx personality! He gave me a red flag (of many) when he shared with me that he was about to venture out on his own but had to go through a bunch of legal matters such as a name change! I asked him why the name change but he gave me the run around. Hester also has a new partner named Damon. All the employees there seemed to be under 25! I asked several of them including Damon about the pay during training. I keep getting the run around about this too. We was given a one day challenge (the day after the 2nd interview), contacting friends and family about buying this oil based perfume. The money cash or check, had to be turned in the next day and they made sure funds was extracted from my account immediately (I wrote a check for my sales) the bank wanted to verify my phone # before they could do so, (another red flag). The saturday meeting was a high energy bunch of young adults training us more and cheering on the sales everyone made. I have to admit I did have fun but I'm gonna take a guess basing off another employer stating that she broke her shoe walking up to a customer that its gonna be door to door sales this next of training! I'm going to call them out monday on their shadiness and demand my familyies hard earned money back! Oh and did I mention that two of the other "seasoned" trainers stopped me after saturdays meeting trying to convince me to stay or come back monday cause its a wonderful opportunity! (another red flag)....I say unless u dont mind door-to-door sales and u can sell ice to an eskimo, than don't do it!!

Professional Con-Artist

AUTHOR: Rasta - (United States of America)

Well, I guess everyone in Miami knows about this individual; the name she is going by is Hester Williams. She claims to be 38years old, with two kids, a boy 19 and a girl 12; and she stated that she graduated from Harvard University with a degree in computers and respiratory therapy. I went on Harvard Medical's web page ( a sub division of Harvard University) http:cme.med.harvard.edu/index.asp and I found NOTHING about respiratory therapy. This person is a professional con-artist, she has changed her appearance a bit, sporting long black hair, a piercing on her left nostril, and another on the right side of her face just above her upper lip. They've set up a new location in Pompano Beach, 138 East McNab Road Suite 138 on the second floor in the Pompano Plaza right behind the 7 Eleven gas station. She gave the same song and dance routine about earning over 300k and she also stated that she has been in the business for almost 9 years. The name that her company is now going by is Regional Management! Here is the add that got me on Craigslist.org.
