Rip-off Report REVIEW:WSI, a privately-owned company is legitimately established and is forthcoming about its location, identities of theirsenior management and its franchise opportunity. The company discloses any and all information about their operations to ensure the highest customer/franchise confidence.
Most complainants investigated to date by Rip-off Report appear to be competitors or ex-employees, although 3 of the Rip-off Reports had complete, bona fide contact information. WSI is actively working to resolve those cases. In many cases IP addresses of individuals "claiming" to be from the United States or from various countries internationally, but were actually found to be posted in Toronto, Canada - indicating reports were most likely filed maliciously and falsely under various identities, but were actually from the same group of only a few individuals.
WSI has experienced rapid growth. In the past it experienced some growing pains with respect to customer responsiveness, but has overcome it with additional support capability and improved customer service, systems and processes.
They appear to be a caring company - They work with and for kids around the world showing goodwill and financial support through many charitable organizations.
The company maintains strong reputable business partners, who help them enhance their operations and support; which includes IBM, Oracle and Price Waterhouse Coopers.
They pledge to fully address each and every person who has a bona fide complaint about them utilizing recommendations set forth in the Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, which WSI is participating in fully.

NOW TO THE ORIGIONAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
I got a job posting a while ago from my old college for a sales position at a company called WSI. I trusted the job would be legit since it was a posting sent to me from my school.
It turned out to be a multi-level marketing scam. You can get all the dirt on this shady business from the other posts. I'm just going to post some new information that wasn't available just incase other people got the same job posting and want to run a search on it. I tried looking up the name and address before my interview, and nothing came up. In the job posting, the company name is different.
I don't want anyone else wasting their time going to one of these interviews, or worse off, end up working for this company. It is stricly commission based.
