I first applied to Worldwide Acquisitions a few months ago because I saw an advertisement on CareerBuilder for an entry level marketing/sales/advertising position. Of course, like every job I applied for, I went on the website (www.wwacquisitions.com) and it looked pretty legit. I also saw that they did marketing/sales for Verizon specifically.
Last month I went to Worldwide Acquisitions for an interview. I actually arrived quite a few minutes early, and on arrival, I saw all these people going out to their cars. It was usually groups of about three or four people, all of them looked like they were just out of college/ in their early to mid-twenties. I was quite skeptical at this, and was pretty much left thinking that all this company really did was door-to-door sales.
I then went into the interview and decided that I really wanted to talk about the position to see exactly what I would be doing. I was of course interviewed by someone who was no more than three years older than me, and all three people that I saw in this tiny office seemed to be in their early to mid twenties.
As for the actual interview, the woman asked me like two questions. I specifically asked her what a typical day would be like for me if I took on this position. Instead of answering the question she completely dodged it and told me that I could find out about the position when I came back for the 2nd interview.
What it seems to me and what I've heard from other people is that they want you to sell Verizon FiOS door-to-door. So if you are a smart, college graduate that doesn't want to have to go wandering around to Boston, don't apply or interview for this position. This position, even though it may be a crappy sales, clearly has nothing to do with marketing or advertising.
