I am grateful that I stopped here before going to my second interview with someone from World Financial.
I was immediately skeptical when I got a call from a man who spoke very fast and never clearly gave his name, invited me to a pre-screening interview.
This invitation was prompted by my publicly posted resume on Monster. I became suspicious when I received a pressuring email and confirmation call making sure I would attend the event. I even told the man calling that I was not interested as I did not have the money to start my own business. He said there was only a fifty dollar start up fee. Imagine that! So I gave in and went to the interview.
I showed up and there was one other girl attending the "event". Three gentlemen were milling about the offices. Not one of them gave their names. I saw a compelling video with different clips regarding the fate of most American families and the pending financial disasters we baby boomers face. By the time it was over I was ready to sign on the dotted line. I too want to help middle America, I am unemployed, and I'm a boomer and I'm in trouble.
Remarkably,I don't need a degree in financing to launch a new career.
Fortunately the speaker gave us a week to think about it and consider a career with this most prestigious financial giant. Well I thought about it and did my homework as the speaker urged us to do. I discovered this site and did some research. The thing that really bothered me the most was how can I give sound financial advice will minimal training on all the different products the company offers? And one other thing why is everyone talking so fast, not allowing questions and skirt the issue of money and costs when I bring it up?
I was only taken for a morning of my time and the cost of gasoline. I cannot imagine feeling good about my job when so many consumers have had bad experiences with their methods and advice. Thanks to everyone who reported on this company.
I tried MLM twice, and lost thousands, I am not going down that road again. Guess I will cancel my next big interview.
