Ok, so like tons of other people in Michigan, I am searching for a new career opportunity. I stumbled across this extremely vague ad for Associated Community Services stating it was for Customer Service/Collections..it said nothing else about the position duties and didn't even list a website. Even with no information I figure why not send my resume in and then try to find out some info online to better my knowledge of what the company does.
So I faxed my resume over, maybe 5 minutes after I received a phone call from Darlene who spoke so fast I could barely get a word in. She quickly stated they saw my resume and wanted me to come in tomorrow. She set a time and gave the address and hung up.
After scheduling the appointment I immediately Google the company.....finding nothing but their address and a phone number on some random site. No website for their own company...that's not very promising...even all of those huge scam pyramid companies have websites.
I show up at the big cool looking Onyx building off of Telegraph and am pretty impressed with their location. As I get off of the elevator and enter their suite, I walk into a lobby with 5 other ladies sitting there. Flash back to again those scam pyramid companies...I was not enthused to say the least. But, I figured I would sit down and be interviewed since I was already there. 10 minutes after my scheduled interview, a young s****. />
I proceeded to smile and ask how her day was. She led me down a long hallway to a conference room where Darlene entered as well. We sat down and I proceeded to tell them that I tried to research the company to find out what they did as a company and couldn't find anything. They then proceeded to tell me that they do not have a website and in order to find info on them I would need to go onto other companies websites...umm ok.
So they proceed to tell me what they do and it turns out...I was not interested and have way more qualifications then what they are looking for obviously. They lead me out of the office without giving me direction on how to find the elevators (sorry I've never been to the building before....don't know where everything is...especially being led out the back entrance) they follow me out and give rude remarks on how I never asked how to get out..well, I shouldn't have to ask...common courtesy (which they had none of).
Darlene decided it would make her look really good when she mocked me in asking if "my mommy had me come out to get a job..." I'm sorry I do not care who you are...you DO NOT say those things to people who come in to meet with you after you give no information and don't have a website.
Needless to say I was blown away and disgusted by the unprofessionalism and how rude every single person I saw there was. No company should mock and laugh at a person who takes time out of their day to come see you. If i was not as professional and mature as I am I would have stooped down to their level and told them off...but I didn't feel like making myself look as dumb as they did....
Stay away from Associated Community Services....they are just like all of the other scam companies...trust me.
