Hi my name in Nosa and normally a very happy individual. but when someone wastes my time i become aggravated and thats what i am right now. I highly believe phonenix managment and scentura creations is to blame. i first saw the ad in the starledger, IT states that they are looking for a receptionist/customer service no experience necessary. Being desperate i decided to apply. I was happy that i was given an appointment for an interview the same day and was accepted for a second interview. One thinq that worried me was the environment. They was playing loud music and wore casual clothing. Then i dismissed my feeling and told myself i was being too judgemental. During the first interview i meet Holly a supposed manager and she told me she was looking for a receptionist and she was also hiring for a branch manager because they was expanding. i told her i preferred to be a receptionist but she can also consider me for the management position as well.Cool i thought. The second interview was a group interview. A loud man name Donny was talking about the company and the mercedez he won while attending a company function.He promised once completion of the program we will sign a contract for $30,000. When asked about compensation while training he describe that we will discuss it monday which is orientation day. After Donny did his demonsstration comparing real calvin klein to the rendition version of that scent he than stated that he can only keep 8-9 people out of the 12 that was there. it was 13 people but she walked out. I was picked to come back for orientation. Before i left the office i wanted a better understanding on how i was being compensated during training i was near broke. I spoke to another gentleman supposedly a general manager and he brushed me off stating that he didnt know and that the way he was compensated when he first started was different than the way they do it know. So i decided to wait until Monday for the answers.Friday came and i was told to fax over some information so i can complete the hiring process being hard headed i again called and spoke to Donny about compensation. He said of course you will be paid but during training there is no weekly check and you will also have to earn your money. I asked do you have to sell perfume he said yes during the first couple of weeks. After i hung up the phone i started to get suspicious. Something told me to look up this company and when i did i was not happy. I wasted gas to go up to middlesex, i felt sorry for all those people in my class, and i was still unemployed. These son of a bitches are good. they prey on jobless people adults between the ages of 18-24 promising us our own office after 6-8weeks.
