Yesterday I answered an advert in the Evening Mail, pg 35 Thurs 3o July.
Immediate Start - Trainee Managers with opportunities for Progression. I rang the telephione no quoted 0121 222 2565 and I was asked to go for an interview at 11:45 at Aspect Court, 4 Temple Row Birmingham,I was told there were jobs available in HR, Marketing, PR & Accounting. I was told there would also be a short presentation concerrning the Company. When I arrived I was shown into a room with about 15 other candidates. We were give a hard sell presentation by a guy called Mr Alphonso Emmanuel. He went on and on about hard work, NLP and how he could tell if someone would be a sucess by looking at them. The presentation laste about 2 hours Basically it is a Franchise and you are self employed. No tmuch was said about the Project. You have an assessment period of 2 weeks followed by concession training of 4 - 6 weeks and 2 weeks to learn Admin. From what I can make out they give you a monthly amount out of which you pay yourself & staff. There was no actual interview we told to ring back at a certain time for the result. I'd like to bet that everyone in that room was told Yes!I am concerned that there were a lot of vulnerable people in that room who could easily get sucked in to what is probably a scam. No mention was made od whatwould happen if you didn't manage to sell anything! I come from a Telecoms background! If the big boys are losing money what chance has anyone else? My advice don't touch itwith a Bargepole. They said they were also recruiting in London, Newcastle, Manchester - cant reember all the places but it as pretty much Nationwide.
