I was approached by one of their representatives while shopping. I have/had no idea why she selected me. Her line was that "I had a nice smile, was I familiar with the area, and did I know of anyone that was interested in a job opportunity."
(Now I believe she said that so that SHE could get the commission off of anyone that became an "employee" and had their financial analysis done; not to mention their request for "character references" was probably another way to get their hands on more "recruits" therefore taking YOUR potential clients.
I asked her if this was for a sales job (because I wouldn't have bothered due to the fact that I can't sell water to a dying man in the desert) and she just kept saying "financial services".
When I arrived I was appalled by the fact that the office was in a rinky *** suite, and part of a "strip mall like" building. The inside looked like it was furnished ala 1950's and like it needed work. Why doesn't a company that claims to make this much money build their own professional looking building?
Right before the ending of the open house, the speaker told us that we would have to pay for a criminal background check. Why did he wait so long to let us know this? Then I happened upon this site and saw that they didn't even mention anything about having to pay 200 dollars for a license!
They also didn't go over HOW you would get paid. I had a follow-up meeting scheduled for tomorrow but I canceled it. I'm not into having to approach people and look desperate by trying to get them to come to the open house for a fake job! This IS a sales job!
