American Income Life / Bad mouthed rep
I had been without work for a few months after being laid off from my ten year position in the Electronics field. I had seen an ad on Craigslist and decided to send my resume because it said it was a Union job. I thought it was odd because the name of the company sounded like an insurance company. I have been a long time member of the union for Electician and HVAC and never heard of an insurance brokers union. But, being desperate for work, I decided to send my resume. I got a call back from a rep named Craig. First, he acknowledged that he received my resume from Craigslist and they wanted me to come in for an interview. He then told me that I would be meeting with an Ernesto and to bring an extra copy of my resume, and dress professionally. Pretty much red flags up to this point because I've been duped like this before. Why would they have to tell me to "dress professionally if they had seen my resume and know I have been working in a professional field for a long time. You usually tell that to snot nose kids still living with their parents, chasing the drea of easy riches. So, I asked him what the position was for and if he received my resume, do I really need to bring another one? He said all my questions would be answered by Ernesto and that he was just setting interviews. So, to indulge my curiosity and with really nothing to do, I decided to check them out. The interview was pretty funny. I was dressed in a nicer suit than the guy who interviewed me but I was polite and heard his pitch. Well, that was exactly what it was, a pitch! I then asked him what the job title was and he said that I would be training for a Managers position and would be building my own team. Then I advised him I had applied for a Customer Service position, not a Managers position. He did't have an answer for that so I decided to throw another question. I asked what the pay was. He sits back in his chair and begins to tell me that if I hustle, I could make a million dollars in my first year. I laughed and asked, "So, this is a commission based position, right?" He explained that yes, this was a commissoned based position and would later turn into an hourly plus commisssion. I pulled out the craigslist ad and showed him what I had read. His smile turned into a frown and told me that I probably wasn't a good fit for the company. I laughed and asked, "What comapny, buddy?" I grabbed my "fresh" resume from his desk, thanked him and left. I told others in the waiting room that this was an employment scam and to rethink applying. Three others around my age walked out.
