scam job offer
Charlotte, North Carolina
I have seen businesses like this one before. I think now, after reading a few posts that the businesses I've seen over the past few years were the same as Elevation only with a different name. I recognized Sheena, the receptionist from somewhere. Now, thinking back, it could have been from another of the similar interviews described in the below link.
Just as many people said with their experience with FP Marketing, when I walked in for my initial interview for Elevation, Sheena had the radio blasting, several people in the most unprofessional-looking waiting room waiting for this position (which tells me, either the job is too competitive or they are looking for slave runners). Similarly when I'd gone on an interview with FP marketing a few years ago, I recognized it as similar interviews I'd had with a couple of other companies some years prior when I had recieved my undergrad degree. So when FP called me back to offer me a chance to interview for the second round I declined.
The times I did go on the second interviews I was taken by my shadow to NoDa, before they re-did it and it was pretty sketchy back then. We went door-to-door selling AT&T services to companies who already had AT&T. It was strange to me. I didn't like it and it was cold outside. Anothertime (and I am not sure this was the same company, but very similar) I assisted my shadow in standing in Cingular wireless stores attempting to convince customers paying for thier bills to bundle thier Cingular service with AT&T home phone and cable services. So glad I didn't do that job because AT&T ended up having that same idea themselves and bought Cingular. LOL! I wouldn't have a job any longer if I'd done that.
When Sheena called me back to offer me the second interview I attempted to ask her the nature of the position because I didn't get much about the actual job I'd be doing from my interviewer. She said that she didn't know what the pay structure was. Really?!? You don't know? Ok. You are just the receptionist. So I asked her to ask the interviewer and call me back before the interview.
Well, Sheena called me a few moments ago confirming my all-day interview tomorrow. I asked her if she'd found out about the pay for the position, and she said she sent a note to someone, but that was as far as she'd gotten. I told her I'd just ask during my interview tomorrow.
That's when I got online and found the below link. After reading the postst and seeing so many similarities in names, set-up, and process, I will not be attending the interview tomorrow. I tried calling Sheena back to let her know that I don't plan to be there, but the line was busy. Something tells me they will have more people to attempt to con without me giving them the opportunity.
