> > > > > > > I sent in my resume to 3 Kings Marketing because, from
their website, they looked like a legit marketing company. The
website made it seem like it was a company that put on promotional
events for many charities and other companies. Sounds great. My first
tipoff that something wasn't right was when I showed up for my first
interview and there were five other people waiting to be interviewed
and that the interview lasted only 5-10 minutes. I went in for my
interview and the only thing that my interviewer seemed to be
interested in was how soon I could start.

> > > > > > > I was called back for what they called a second
interview, really it was me going along on one of their 'campaigns'.
This got me really excited because I thought we'd be meeting the
client and working on putting together a promotional event for them
(as far as the event goes I thought it would be something that we put
together for the community to spread word about the company and its
cause). I left the office and went along with a 'team leader' and his
new 'distributor'. We ended up setting up a folding table outside of a
Food Lion and trying to sell cosmetics to any and everyone. It was so
embarrassing. I was stuck out there for a little over four hours in
the almost 100 degree heat. I came close to calling someone to come
pick me up.

> > > > > > > The hierarchy that the 'team leader' drew for me was so
hilarious. I have only one thing to say...pyramid scheme.
> > > > > > >
> > > > > > > Level 1 = distributor (Works only on commission and I
learned every day that they work they are supposed to sell at least
$300 worth of crap. The four hours I spent out there we sold a grand
total of $50. I was told that distributors usually move to the next
level within 3-4 weeks.)
> > > > > > > Level 2 = leader (One notch up but basically the same
job. Just a small difference in the amount of commission that they
receive. Leaders are supposed to move up to the next level in 3-4
weeks.)
> > > > > > > Level 3 = team leader (They are in charge of a certain
number of distributors and leaders and their pay is based off the
commission that those who work below them make. Again a whopping 3-4
weeks before moving up.)
> > > > > > > Level 4 = Assistant Manager (They work in the office
and are in charge of a number of team leaders. Their pay is based off
the commission of those below them. Once again 3-4 weeks before moving
up.)
> > > > > > > Level 5 = Owner (OK so this is the last level and
honestly I don't know if becoming an owner means that you get your
own franchise or what. I didn't exactly question him to thoroughly.)
> > > > > > >
> > > > > > > All in all, I was told that in less than 6 months I
could easily become an owner and make $150,000+. Needless to say, in
the four hours I stood outside the Food Lion, I wasn't too
enthusiastic and not so surprisingly I did not get a call back.

Quantum umbrella. There are some good people in the company, but
being good doesn't make you an ethical person and there are
definitely some practices to call into question. We can all make our
own decisions and some people will be successful in the companies
they 'run' but the shift in mentality to enough to question why they
try and shape everyone into the same person.

first "interview" lasted literally 5 minutes, then I was
called back for a "2nd interview" in a matter of hours. It
wasn't until I arrived for the 2nd interview that I was informed I
would be taken to one of their "events". It was so lame, I
won't even mention what it was. I was kept prisoner for nearly 8
hours. What a waste of time and energy. Two words of advice: LOOK
ELSEWHERE. Don't waste your time! This place needs to smarten up;
word travels.

Advertising, Tradewind Promotions, Pembroke Acquisitions, Payment
Alliance International and Pursuit Promotional Group â  STAY
AWAYâ  . These companies are the biggest scams. For example, I
received a call from Championship Advertising and thought it was kind
of funning that I didn't fill out an application and he didn't look at
my resume. Itâ  s actually true what the person said earlier that
my interview lasted about 5 to 7 minutes, and I was to show up the
following day to observe them and to meet the so-called team leader
who will show me around and tell me about the job. Well, I showed up
the following day and met the team leader which I thought he was
going to take me to the office or building where they worked at but
it wasn't the case. I got into the car with 4 guys and we traveled
across town to the worst part of Tampa, FL "Gunn RD" and I
quickly found out we were going into neighborhoods to sell car wash
coupons. It was a complete scam they talk about fortune 500 companies
they represented but its all lie. I was held prisoner for nearly 3 1/2
hours. I couldn't believe they want me to sell things door-to-door.
Lastly, never believe a job if they try to pay you under the table.
These companies are cheating the government. So please believe me
don't waste your time and energy. Two words of advice: LOOK
ELSEWHERE. FOUND A REAL JOB.

> > > This is sooo True, especially about the company 90 Ten
Marketing firm!!! THEY ARE THE SAME!!!!! I was tricked into believing
from their so called description that they were an advertising firm
that dealt with major companies like Marvel Comics and MTV. I too
thought I would be working in an office near a computer and get busy
getting in contact with these companies. Boy was I wrong! After I was
called for my second interview I was told I would
"experience" what the job would be like. So I went in a car
with two other guys and we went to the bad section of NYC where they
had auto shops. There all we did was sell stupid high priced posters
and stickers which none of the auto shops wanted. OMG I wasted 2
hours in the burning sun doing cra*p and I immediately told the guys
I wanted to go home! That was such a horrible experience! I won't
trust many job listings ever again! Next time I will be more keen and
be weary of so called "Marketing, Advertising" and such!

> > You go for a first interview & they tell you they work with
many fortune500 companies when really they work with a charity which
only gets a small % of the earnings & they pocket the rest. They
say Nascar but its a noname carwax that doesnt event work. Everything
else is just knockoff products they sell to people who think they are
getting a real Disney toy. They tell you they have 35 people
interviewing a day and they are only looking for the right people to
call back. Actually, they have 10 a day(maybe) and they will call
almost everyone back.

> > You come in for your second interview & you are dragged out
to an event from 8:30-6 without getting paid. What they do is only
tell you what you want to hear. If you have a family they wont tell
you that youll be spending 14 hours a day lying to people so the boss
can make money. If your looking to make money they will tell you youll
make $350-450 your first week & then when your promoted you make
$500-800. TOTAL LIE. The trainers on average make $400 a week after
putting close to 80 hours in.

they are willing to hire anyone who is stupid enough to believe their
lies.

to get to these events which can be over an hour away. Its a big cult
that tries to brainwash people into thinking that in less than one
year you will own your own company and be making $100,000. In reality
most of the people in that office whom haven't figured it out and quit
have been there for well over a year and are still making $450/week.
You will be running a location that is making the top boss rich. You
never own your own company. Its like being a manager of a franchised
starbucks.

day which consists of shadowing a account manager, team leader etc.
You will be out there door to door or at an "event" outside
of Wal-Mart for 8hrs. without getting paid.
> *3 KINGS MARKETING (which is also DC Marketing & many more)
& THE LUPINE GROUP, FW1 (FAST WAX), etc. Because they all sell
door to door or stand outside of Wal-Martâ s where they hold
"events", there is no base pay, no benefits and you work
7:30am-6pm mon-sat!!!!

yahoo or google the name of the comp! and...EVERY Company should have
a website and if "its down"...that is bs!

It sounds to me that you just aren't interested in earning a living. I work on commission only and I make great money, I set my own pace, I'm pretty much my own boss. But then again, I hustle for new clients, I work hard to get my clients results, and that in turn gets me referrals. Maybe a job at McDonalds would suit you better.
