Let me tell you about IE INNOVATIONS.
This is mainly for those going on interview or have been called for
one. Look IE INNOVATIONS is a front company for AT&T U-Verse lets
get right to it, it is a Direct Sales, Outside Sales company that
follows a template that most careerbuilder.com Sales and Marketing
jobs Follow. When I was called in for an interview I was already
aware of the Smokes & Mirrors, my goal was to real scout the
company learn their tactics and implement in a legitimate business
model where others wouldn't be beating the pavement selling AT&T
Uverse. So as I said I was aware of everything first off

(1) Beware of any company that says
SPORTS MINDED or uses capital letters to advertise their name..thats
a no brainier, they also claim to have partnered with Fortune 500
companies...which is true...but complicated

(2) When they call you it is very
cheesy and corny the girl Noel sounds like a high pitched robot
reading from a thoroughly memorized script, she says we are looking
for managers and account reps, my response since I was in essence a
spy was "I have managed successful businesses and I have a track
record of success, I won't be walking door to door will I?"
Thats when they choke up, they are used to people applying and
accepting the BS that they hand them so when someone has a TRUE CEO
mindset and has payed dues in a legitimate business atmosphere they
are shocked!!

(3) When you come in to this Business
establishment the Office furniture is on lease by Aaron's to be
perfectly honest it was scratched, bruised, and neglected. They have
this corny WOW music pumping in the background and it is really
unprofessional..I'm just in there shaking my head..thinking this is

(4) After you enter the Office and fill
out an app you are taken into an interview with a Manager with
business gear straight out of Goodwill and Marshall's (Which is fine
but..come on This is Fortune 500 partner right!!) So as I am in the
interview, the manager is obviously not seasoned and kind of
unprofessional. He asks questions from a SCRIPT verbatim he has no
charisma and is not really convincing. He asks me about personal
goals and objectives that are so cliche' that it sounds like a
Stephen Covey excerpt. At the end he schedules me with a follow up
interview with a HEAVY HITTER whatever that mean.
(5) I show up to the follow interview
the next day, I already knowing that I would be shadowing a GRINDER
going Door to Door. So they match me up with this guy who is a world
class lame named Malachi. I hate to call people out but these guys
trick college grads and true grinders who are looking for a career.
So Malachi asks me all types of bogus questions that are from a
personal development script like Do I love winning, or hate
losing like who says stuff like that. He shows me how to waste Gas
and commute to the boonies and knock on people's door who are renters
and working class people. We eat lunch and he goes over the Business
and compensation plan, and again I'm shaking my head, you work your
way up this unrealistic latter to become a Office Manager. So I asked
him Can't I just do this myself and partner and negotiate a deal
with AT&T on my own strength, get a office, rent furniture, and
post bogus ad's on careerbuilder? his response was We have to
do it this way...So I took that response as this guy has been
drinking the Kool-Aid.

(6) So after this shadowing in
the field, we go back to the office and they are doing all type of
un-cool stuff asking me questions about my next step, they set me
aside while they make their descion to hire me. So I talked to
the guy interviewed with and he goes this proverbial drum roll of BS,
and says WELCOME TO THE TEAM. He was ecstatic and wanted me to
be chippy like he was.....I was just shaking my head and left the
office and never looked back. (CONCLUSION) Adopt the CEO mentality
and don't fall into someone rat-race or business model. Nowadays
people stop looking for jobs and they start producing them, you don't
have to Come of Age to be a CEO..just go and fill out LLC and
INC paperwork. I'm not knocking their hustle but when I ask you
direct questions give me direct answers, don't' be Shady tell the
truth. People hate being taking for ride and tricked, it wouldn't be
a problem if they were honest but they just front. Sorry I was on the
fly writing this grammar is bad and spelling..But you get my
drift...Be a CEO !!!!
