*General Comment: Scams
To be blunt and realistic, this job is all about being an adult selling girl scout cookies, except you wear a suit and sell energy service or other products. 95% of the people say no if they even bother to answer their door in the first place. Some people slammed it on him, some cursed him out, and some invited us inside which was very creepy because the people were all shady as hell. By law you aren't allowed to go inside if invited because of the danger involved. That alone should be a red flag. The sales guy would constantly ask me the same questions throughout the day: "So why should you be hired?", "What kind of person do you think it takes to make it here?", etc. I thought the guy was half brain-dead, as I answered the same questions all day as if he didn't remember. I made it through the 5 hours of brutal door to door BS and we finally hopped on the subway back downtown to their office. On the way, he told me he liked me and thought I was a great candidate. He told me when I got back to the office I would be given a short test to take as the final stage and gave me the answers to some of them...he even told me I could write them down. This was very suspicious, but I let it all play out anyway. I met with the woman from the first interview again when I returned from Harlem and she told me the sales guy loved me and was very impressed so they wanted to hire me right then and there. After all the explanation in terms of pay and all that, she said, "Congratulations, we'd like to offer you the position! Come in tomorrow at...." and I cut her off. I thanked her, but cautioned that I would need a day to sleep on it and think it over. The second I suggested I needed even a day to think about it, she got nasty. "Well, you said you could start immediately...what is there to think about?" she said sternly. "If you need to think about it then fine, but we can hire another candidate in your place very quickly so..." and I just told her I'd get back to her. I never bothered to call back. This job is 100% scam and you can sense it if you have more than a few brain cells. You have to grow a pair and be straight forward and defend yourself against these business sharks...they will try every trick they have from intimidation, to false promises, to using other interviewers as leverage to force a fast decision, etc.
In conclusion, if you get an interview for like 1-8PM, then it's a door to door scam. They tell you the success stories and try to come off as prestigious and slick, but you can see through them easily by the end of the day. There is NO base pay, NO benefits, and it's just a joke. I honestly don't know who would take a job like this...you have to be practically an olympic athlete to even be able to walk around and climb hundreds of stairs everyday for 5-7 hours. The Henry Group is a scam, and they try to win you over making it seem like they are very selective picking you out of a large pool, but the truth is anyone with a brain and a pair of legs is offered the job because it's slave work. Do not even bother with this place.
