EA Worldwide Acquisitions / Beware!

Contact information:

I saw the advert for the job on reeds site and applied for the ea worldwide job and the london marketing job. I got phone calls from both of these so called companies within the hour. I was a bit confused as when i looked in the emails they were both based in shand st (london bridge) on the same floor. I attended the interview today and when arriving at london bridge i saw a truckload of young people around the age I am. I then started to think that these were the people who have applied for the job I have and, instantly betted myself that if I would pass the first interview they would send me on some slave trade when i would go the 2nd. I got to the office and saw loads of people coming in and out for interviews. I reached the reception where there were two receptionists with one phone on each side, one recoptionist answering for london marketing and the other for ea worldwide. I was assured that this is a bogus company but still thought let me do the interview and then I would ask about my confusions... all the guy did was talk about how you can get big witihin the year and talked about how successfull they were. He didnt even tell me about the job and what it entails, no figures...nothing. He didnt even ask about my experience but he liked me and wanted me back next day from 10.45 till 6. I was then 100 percent certain that this was bull and he asked me to come back I said I would but I will not go. I came home and looked on both their sites, they were both nearly identical and looked like it is designed especially lure the minds of the people who want a job there making people think thet they are something spectacular, however they do not mension their polices or in actual fact what they do.
I dont blame this company but I do put the blame on reeds which is a respectable agency which I registered for and this is what i get... to anyone who who is going to this interview I advise you not to go.

    EA Worldwide called me today, 2 hours after I sent my CV. I was so pleased to get a call, as like you I have applied for every job going, and haven't had any luck.
    Thanks so much for posting this, glad I came across it whilst doing research. Sorry you had to go through the whole ordeal. I will not be attending the interview tomorrow, I'm not even going to tell them either...ha!
    Good luck with the jobsearch.

    London Marketing Services is evil. I went in for the interview at the location on Shand Street and they invited me in for a second round in which I spent all day walking up and down london streets. Unfortunately I didnt have any other options so i started work with them but then I got asked to attend a party with my team leader. One girl mentioned she didnt have the right shoes so she took some else's shoes that were left in the office. Already starting to think it was a bit weird but maybe she knew the people. We out to a night club in soho where i was continually approached by one of the managers Sam Green. He was trying to get me drunk and sleep with him. Apparently everyone in the office sleeps with each other. It's like one big orgy. I got out the office immediately. I was looking for a more professional business rather than hanging out with people who do lines of coke and try to sleep with their co-workers.

    What people don't understand is that they are self-employed and get taught how to turn £300 into £3500 in just 8-10 months. Every buisness works on commision like a resturant, if they don't get any customers comming in to eat the manager can't pay the waiters, chefs and even themselves but if they get alot of customers the resturant makes alot of money.

    Alot of really successfull people have put alot of time into thier businesses and that's why they are successfull. Thier mentality is what I put in what I get out. Everyone wants the great things in life, all the luxeries but don't want to work hard for it!
    This is an oppertunity where you take or not it's up to you! You don't have to be there it's your choice!!

    I agree! I went to interview with both London Marketing and Carolina Consulting, was paired with someone and went out doing door to door, he actually told me himself he sleeps arounds with the other girls in the company. I was told today i can be a manager in 4 months! what b.s its brain wash! if its too good to be true, then it is! what a scam and waste of time, energy and money.

    They have EA worldwide in birmingham city centre. Door to door scam. Commision only. You earn for only what you sell. 12-14 hours a day. You will be lucky to earn £20 a day for them hours.

    Long door to door interview process with NO SALARY, commission based also being SELF EMPLOYED. 12 hours a day plus Saturdays!! NO THANX! Have to pay for your own transport going missions away from base!!! If you get a call from ea worldwide / midlands consultants turn it DOWN. Recently had 3 of my friends attended the interview and they offered the job to everyone, they sound desperate.

    You're all idiots, I've been in the business 8 months and I've just recently opened my own office. I make £1500 a day bare minimum. Work that out... At the end of the day it's a good job you people get out the way as quickly as possible, you would just be wasting my time if you came for an interview at my office. You're lose my gain, sounds good to me!!
