KC Premier / Scam artists
After a month long job hunt I was pleased to get a call from a company looking for employees on a Monday afternoon. After answering the call I became frustrated when the girls phone kept cutting out. I was having a hard time hearing who she was and where she was calling from. Finally after a few tries I was able to hear her clearly.
She told me that she was calling from KC Premier which was a company that dealt mainly with Health and Fitness. She asked if I was working or still looking for employment. I informed her that I was still looking for a job. As I began talking to her I looked over the notebook of places I had applied for jobs with, Only to discover that KC Premier wasn't one of them. Perhaps she got my phone number off of my resume I had posted online...
She then proceeded to ask me what my past employment history involved. After listing the numerous retail jobs I'd worked during my college days she told me that their company positions would involve NETWORKING, and communications with people and asked if I'd be interested. Being the skeptic I am I asked her if the position would be a sales type position. She told me that they did have SOME sales type positions. I immediately told her that I was not interested in sales and that I was looking for more of a clerical type position. She told me they had positions available like that too. WOW a company that has any job your looking for!
She then proceeded to set up a time when we could meet on a Monday afternoon at 1:00. She gave me the address and told me that KC Premier was located at I-35 and lamer. NOTE: I was familiar with the area because I used to live right off of the same exit. She told me that they were near the railroad tracks in a building titled Business Center and that I'd see Sports car shop when I pulled in. She told me that they were on the second floor and to tell the secretary that I was there to meet her.
When I realized where she was located I asked her if that was where I'd be working because that was too far of a drive for me. She told me that they had many employees who commute to other locations from independence and overland park but that she wasn't sure which one was closest to me. I then asked her if I needed to bring a resume or cover letter. She told me that it wasn't mandatory but recommended. She also proceeded to tell me that if the interview went well that I should make sure to have ID's and other forms of identification with me so that I wouldn't have to come back.
Right as I was about to hang up I realized that she'd never given me her number. I asked and she apologized and said her name was Anna and to reach her at [protected]. After I hung up the phone I got a bad feeling so I decided to do some research to see if I had perhaps applied for a job with them and just forgotten. After searching the internet I found nothing other than another report on https://www.complaintsboard.com similar to mine. I decided to call her number to try and get some more information only to get her voice mail with her full name Anna Marello (spelling might not be correct). I hung up and didn't leave a message. Needless to say I do not need a job from a company that is reported on https://www.complaintsboard.com. I'm so glad that I didn't go into that building alone.
