Does this job seem "legit"?

Postby JA. » Thu Oct 03, 2013 12:44 pm

I recently been "let go" of due to an argument with my assistant manager... Now im out of a job and I have been looking everywhere. However most places that seem to call me back ended up being those multi level marketing gigs where The only way I can get paid is recruiting other people or by making commission based sales.

I was wondering if this company is one of those too? If anyone has any information on them it would be great.

I went to their 1st interview at a corporate location and they said they were a employer that trains entry level sales reps to become "managers".

Currently the hiriging manager told me they were marketing and promoting DirectTV at retail locations and that the pay is commissioned based but there is a " safety net"

Any information would be great since I would hate to have hopped on and found out it was another one of those marketing companies that really get you no where.

That sounds like the guy I see at my Costco every Sunday, hawking DirectTV. He seems pretty happy.

No direct experience with or knowledge about that company, though.

Yep. I get the same people at Sam's Club. You can't get rid of those people. Before they even talk to me I say "Yes I have directTV and NFL ticket." Neither are true, but they got nothing to say after that...

Sounds like they want someone to hawk direct tv at malls and other places and will pay you next to nothing plus commission.

If you have no other skills this might be your only real option but I would not chose that company if I could help it.

Personally I don't acknowledge their presence in my world. If they block my way I run into them then offer to call the cops to have them charged with assault. So far no takers but it shuts them up.
