This company has been putting out ads for receptionists on Craigslist. They specify that they want an upbeat "people person" and "not a career receptionist." You will receive an email back if you apply (and fit their age requirements, usually 18-24) VERY SOON, probably from a "David." The email address is (right now) email@example.com. He says that he has already filled the (nonexistent) receptionist position, but DOES have an entry level management opportunity. He will tell you to call "Rachael" to set up your interview.
You will not hear a company name at ALL in the email. Rachael answers the phone with "Ultimate." Ultimate WHAT? You are given NO idea what the company is about. The only hint of it even having to do with perfume is if you get lost in the hallway (I did) the directory says "Ultimate Fragrance," and David has bottles of perfume on the wall of the office.
They promise you a management job with 60-90 days of paid training, "depending on you" making a SALARY (no word about commission) of "700-800 a week, or 35,000 - 40,000 a year" with room for advancement and promotion. They keep going on about how they will train you, and it's not experience/education they're seeking, but personality.
David talks way too fast for you to ask questions and you are shooed out of the office very quickly -- the interview will take no more than about 10 minutes, and the "application form" is a joke. These just make you THINK it's legit. They only want to make sure you can talk to people and aren't ugly enough to scare everyone off -- so you can hock (fake) perfume.
THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THIS OFFICE ARE David, Rachael, and apparently "Jenny," whom I have not met. You will NOT get an office job like you are led to believe -- you will be trained for a week or two, UNPAID, and then get sent out on the STREETS to peddle their rip-off perfume.
Don't fall for it -- it does NOT sound like a scam at all, or even like you will be selling something! Even I was skeptical when I found other Ripoff Reports on this company. Be VERY careful! This company has gone by Universal Unlimited, World Perfume and Gateway International in the St. Louis area, and is known as Scentura Creations worldwide.
