Please beware. I answered an ad in the paper that said DVA Inc was hiring for adminstration jobs starting at $40,000/ year, said apply if you were young minded and willing to have fun at work. They scheduled you for an interview the same day very quick they do not ask for references or a resume. Stacey is the interviewer and she schedules you for another interview to meet the President.

The next day there were 20-30 people in a meeting room with folding chairs. Then they prep you for the boss to come in and tell you to take good notes, smile, and be attentive because that is how the boss would choose who she wanted to work for her.

The president Hester Hernandez comes in and begins her sales pitch she lets you know that she did not want resumes because people lie on them that she did not care about a criminal past because everyone deserves a chance. She then tells the story of how she went to college and graduated twice as a respitory therapist and a computer technician but she was always broke.

She says that Steve Tejeda gave her the opportunity to get this job and now she makes $300,000 a year. I remained skeptical because they never went into what exactly the position involved. After an hour and a half she chose her people she wanted to return to the office for training on Monday and she let everyone know that you would not be put on payroll until after training so you would be paid in cash weekly for training. I was one of the chosen.

However they just did not give me enough info so I searched for the company and could not find them which was strange because according to Hester the had over 900 offices world wide. Then I googled Larry Hahn and it led me here and I am so relieved that I had enough sense to check this company out.

BEWARE they change the company name as they change cities. I am elated that I looked them up before going too far. They will try to work on by having the radio loud in the office, making it seem fun, they will make jokes that would not be allowed in a professional work environment and Hester continues to make people who may be skeptical feel like they are just scared of a challenge.

When in reality you need to be scared of a scam that you will regret later. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AND DO NOT GO BACK FOR TRAINING!!!!!!!!

How to Avoid this type of Scam

AUTHOR: Maggie/houston, Tx - (U.S.A.)

I had an interview this morning with this perfume company owned by Larry Hahn. A new office has opened in the Houston, Texas area and by another name. I responded to one of their employment ads that ran for the first time and was very surprised when I called about the ad how quickly I was told to be there for an interview.

When I first walked in their office, all kinds of "flags" went off. The office was shabby looking, only a desk for the receptionist, no filing cabinets, no office equipment, no computer, nothing, but a phone and a desk. This was the first warning flag for me. I was waiting for an interview along with another gentleman, we were both called to the back for an interview together. I thought this was a little strange, but I did as they asked. This woman began to tell us all about the company and Larry Hahn, how great he and the company are, all kinds of positive things were said by her. She said they were opening 2 offices in the Houston area. As I was sitting there listening to this woman I noticed there was no computer, no filing cabinets, no office equipment at all, nothing but a desk and a phone. The longer I sat there, the more suspicious I became of this company. Anyway, the interview ended for the both of us with her saying she will get back with us. As I was leaving I knew this job offer had to be a scam. Everything she was saying was very suspicious to me, the entire office environment was suspicious, almost like a "fly by night" type business.

I guess what I am trying to say, I knew immediately this was a scam job offer. There were all kinds of "red flags". The receptionist and the reception area were not of the norm, not what you would expect to see when going for an interview. The lady that interviewed me was not dressed professionally, she claimed to be in management position, but yet she was not dressed properly, she had about 4 different hair colors, too. Her office was not professional at all, nothing about this company looked professional or on the up and up.

I am hoping that I can help someone by not making the same mistake as others. I am so glad I knew right off that something was not right about this company. I am hoping that all the other people interviewing for the positions in the Houston area realize that this is a scam and will do their research first. When I got home I did a search on the internet for the name of this company in the Houston area and nothing came up, but I did a search on Larry Hahn and found this website and so many other websites about him and his company.

Please people, place close attention, notice the warning signs, which there are many with this company.

#2 UPDATE Employee

False Promises where ? Happy satisfied Owner

AUTHOR: Mdwethebest - (U.S.A.)

First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Earley G, I went through training a year and a half ago in middlesex, new jersey. When I first started I answered the ad just like everyone else. But unlike the other people that I started with, I stuck with it and I finished the program. When I started I was in Job Corp, I was broke and I had no plan in life. I went from job to job to job until finally I answered the ad, Donnie did my first interview and he gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. When I started I had to do some sales (just like everyone else) but instead of quitting, I had to work harder. Long story short I finished the program in ten weeks (two weeks shorter than my goal). I now run a location of my own in Lanham, Maryland, which means I am a promotion of Donnie and Holly's. I now do the same job that they do, I signed up to be a manager and that is exactly what I am. I didn't get in this to do sales (which no one does). Donnie told me that I could make 30K my first year in the first interview. But in my business in its first year, I made $82,000. I feel like I scammed Donnie. People who blow out in their first or second week obviously didn't understand the business. They give anyone, no matter what race,color,gender, or age, the same opportunity they gave me. Free merchandise, free training, (the day you have to pay for something should be a red flag for you no matter what business) and they also give you the opportunity to move to any state with a business for free. Like I said I went through training in New Jersey and I got the freedom to move to Maryland. Any person with a brain can look at all these negative letters and see that people run offices all over the country. So ask yourself, how did they get there? They got promoted there obviously. Running your own business isn't going to happen overnight, it takes more time and dedication to be successful in this and in any business. Anyone who says this is a pyramid scam or that you dont get promoted doesn't know what THE
F*** your talking about. Everyone has the exact same equal opportunity. All it takes to complete training is working hard( for yourself), dedication, and a little blind faith, believing that Donnie and Holly will get you open. I am so confident that I am going to leave my phone number (NOT FOR BLOWOUTS) but for people who actually want some advice on how to run a successful business for Scentura. 240-380-6157 or 240-330-7566. I have alot of respect for Donnie and Holly because if I was in the position, I wouldn't even bother running an office I would retire. They are great people and unbelievable promoting owners. I am 21 years old, I am black and I make decent money. Thanks to Larry Hohn for giving me the opportunity. When an opportunity like this comes your way it isn't about what someone else did or does for you but what you do with the opportunity yourself. See you at the top.
