resolved to the customer's satisfaction
Would you repeat the name of the company again please? Matthew Henderson Agency. Only
the most vague description of what I was to interview for was given.
I received a phone call in response to my resume posting on Monster.com by a man named 'Edward' pitching a Customer
Service/Sales position with no "Cold Calling" and that involved "Labor Union Members." An interview was set up for the next day at a location not far from my home. Having been raised in this area, I am familiar with most major companies but had never heard of the Mathew Henderson Agency. Something about the call didn't seem right as the representative was talking rather fast
and seemed to be in a hurry to get on to his next call. I decided to do some research online about the business, whose name I realized very quickly during the research, was not in any way connected to American Income Life Insurance Company during the phone call. After completing my research, and finding out that this business was, in fact, connected with the insurance company I tried to do the professional thing and cancel my interview so that another interested candidate could take advantage of the time allotted. The representative's phone answering system was full, of course, and the local agent/business hung up on me. As with others scammed by this insurance agent, my advice to job seekers out there is to do your research... thoroughly! DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS and ask representatives to repeat information given rapidly over the phone. Unfortunately many of the opportunities today really are misleading or outright scams... and when something doesn't feel right, trust your instincts!
