Thank God for helpful sights like this on the internet. LARRY HAHN IS A  FRAUD. SYNERGY EXPANSIONS/Scentura Creations IS A SCAM

if you have an interview this is what to expect:::::::::

I have been kinda desprate for a job and looking everywere. Im four months preg. so it has been kind of hard... no one wants to hire a preg. girl. Then i found this listing on criagslist saying they wanted "fun outgoing people" and "no experience needed! become a manager!" i thought what the hell and i called.

 It was around 1:30pm  Tuesday and wen the girl answered i asked for just breif info on the job. insted of answering me she asked me if working 9 to 5 was something i wanted and if i thought i could be a manager. Still with giving me no info she then told me to come into the office that day at 4.

Like i said i was desprate.. so i went. When i got there there was many other people crowded into this small crappy waiting room with rapp music blairing. I signed in and waited about 10 min when the branch manager Farzad comes in and calles out three names mine being one of them.

When we sit in this crappy lil office he briefly explains the company without really explaining the company. He was saying things about the training and how he wasnt expecting this many people to come in for interviews so to save time the first interview was going to be in groups and the second would be a long interview individualy if we made it to the second interview. Still after explaining the company as little and vagly as he did he still would not give us a company name. He asked us veryy little questions one  by one then asked us to leave he would call us later that day between 5:30 and 6. the questions were::

1. what was the last job you had?

2. is management something you would like to do?

3. rating yourself 1-10 how are you in customer service?

4. what is one word that discribes you?

and 5. Is making $30,000 a year safficiant for you?

that was it. he made his desicions on that. Later  that night i got a call from the secretary saying i somehow impressed Farzard on the hole 4 or 5 words i got to say to him and i should come in thursday at noon for a second one on one interview and i would need paper and pen and to dress sharp because corprate managers would be there.

On thursday (today) i went in at 11:45 and there was people out the door waiting. At least 50 people showed uo for this so called "one on one" interview. they then put us all into this really smalll confrence room with about 40 plastic chairs set up (everyone else had to stand). They then talked for 3 hours bout this company.. No one from upper managment was there.. and a woman briefly was in telling us to laugh at his stupid jokes and to make sure we smile the hole time.

But there was one this i did notice the hole time he talked...

He didnt explain the company. he have us a name: Synergy Expansions. he even gave us a website ( wich i visited. it didnt look promising) and talked about training about why what they did was legal.. and even though he didnt explain much of the company i still somehow was reasured it was real and lagit. he was that good of a talker. He probably convinced a mad on fire he was freezing.

There was a few other things that cought my attention. Larry hahn... the name sounded very familiar.

**** Larry Hahn is not a real person. Larry Haun is. he is a very famous man fetured in magazines and on tv.. but he does NOT sell perfumes.

****Synergy also was familure to me. But once again it is NOT a company that sells perfumes.

After they were done talking for 3 hours about nothing he told us his own success story. then called out all of our names one by one asking us 2 or 3 questions then went on to the next person. this was his "one on one interview"

then slowly they brought 4 or 5 people out of the room at a time by randumly picking applications and telling them they ether had the job or diddnt or the were "on reserve if someone didnt work out"

I got Accepted. yay. wheni got hone i was so exited to tell my husband i got a job after a month of looking but he was sceptical. we even got into a fight because i blaimed him for not being positive or being happy for me.

But his words got to me. at first i had trubble finding anything on the company that had suposible been around for 30 years, that was odd to me.. to i typed in synergyexpansion scams. i found the company.

i found hundreds and hundreds of people explaining exactly how the two interviews were for me.. and how horibble the next few weeks were for them. sevral lost alot of money because they wernt making any income wile they had 2 months of "training" and had no way to pay bills... they also talked about the illigal this they were trying to make them do.

JUST BECAUSE THEY ARENT ASKING FOR YOU TO GIVE THEM MONEY OR INVEST DOESNT MAKE IT NOT A SCAM.

I also found out they have been changing there name sevral times not to be cought. Scentura Creations was the most common name they have been using. they resently changed it to Synergy expansions. wen they answer phones they put letters togeter like "mlsc" or "wfl". they dont actully say any name.

I still plan to go in on monday like asked to hand diliver copies of many of the posts i found abbout this complany and hand it out to the other 15-20 people who got hired so they can make a informed decicion for themselves and confront farzad and his trainer nattalie.

FYI :::

They use names like Larry Hahn and Synergy because it rings bell for many of us but most of us dont quite know who he is or were we have heard of it before so we buy into what they are saying. thats how they get us.

#3 UPDATE Employee

These are the best!!!

AUTHOR: papa perfume - (United States of America)

These are my favorite posts.  The ones who never even got started with the company.  And they rant and rant not knowing any information.  So lets discet this poor girls post. 

There is a two part interview.  She got that part right, but the rest is crap.  I've never personaly met Farzad or Natalie but I can probably tell you what they covered in the interview.  Some people don't understand how it's all so similar.  It's the same business how can it change to much.  The only thing that changes is people.  We are not machines.  But here's probably most of what they covered. 

It's a first part of a two part interview, or screening application.  They are a wholesale fragrance company undergoing a expansion.  They have positions ranging from management to staff.  Duties include opening, closing, books, interviews, inventory, and day to day operations of running the office.  Income min 30k.  There is a training program that everyone has to go through where you'll learn the ins and outs of of the business from sales to mgmt.  Upon completion you'd manage a group of 10-15 people and the duties are described above.  Then they may ask some general background questions. 

That's a cliff notes version of a interview.  My first interview last about 8-10 minutes.  Then 2nd interview lasts over 2 hours covering every aspect of the first interview in detail. 

Next she says Larry Hahn doesn't exist.  Funny how I have several pictures with Larry and myself. 

Next she reads more post of which %95 are people that were there less then 3 days.  And says "people weren't making any money for 2 months"  First of all like I said most of the posts are people that were there less then 3 days, second no one is around for 2 months that isn't making money.  The average manager trainee that completes the training made about $350 a week during training.  If I had to go back through training again I'd make over $500 a week for training.  I've had people make over $1200 in a week.  Christmas just got over and I had 4 people "in training" that made over $800 in the week before Christmas in profits and bonuses. 

Now the only offices that I've seen change names are the ones that moved.  Or the ones that got new management.  Every office is independently owned and operated.  None of us are Scentura.  We have little connections with Scentura except that they provide us with the product and opportunity.  So sorry little pregnant girl.  However I'm sure I'd be stressed if I was about to bring a life into this world and I don't have and can't keep a job.  And even more funny is it was the boyfriend that was skeptical, what does he do?  Good luck to that family, I'll pray for you. 

So on goes the battle.  Blow-outs vs Managers.  I'm still winning!!

Good luck to all and best wishes
