Elite Consulting Inc., Providence RI – Dishonest Job Posting

I was contacted by Elite Consulting regarding the resume I posted to careerbuilder.com. The woman told me they were very interested in setting up an interview for their entry-level Account Manager position. I agreed and my interview was scheduled the very next day. Upon arrival nothing seemed out of the ordinary, there were a few other professionally dressed people there awaiting their interview. The actual interview process took less than 10 minutes, it may have even been closer to 5. Virtually no information about the actual job was given, and I was told I would be contacted later that day to set up a 2nd interview if they were interested. Sure enough, no more than 2 hours after leaving their offices I received a telephone call congratulating me. It was a Wednesday, and pretty late in the day so the woman let me know they would call me in the morning to set up a time for Friday. I waited all morning, no call. Finally around noon I called them, asking specifics on the second interview. Right away the woman sounded frazzled. It was then she let me know it would be a 6.5 hour job shadowing, beginning at 1pm on Friday and ending at 7:30pm. This concerned me, but I need work, and I figure it’s worth it if they hire me. But I still had a few questions. I asked the woman what exactly I would be doing during this job shadowing. I was told I would be paired up with an ‘Account Manager’ and shown around the office a bit, then head out to, and I quote, "meet with clients." Let me tell you, if you’re interviewing for an entry-level position and the company tells you you’ll be "meeting with clients", that is a gigantic red flag. If you don’t know what "meet with clients" means, it means "ride around the city with a complete stranger knocking on doors trying to sell things to people". The job was a door-to-door salesman position. After she finished her poorly rehearsed drivel, I pressed her further, forcing her to elaborate. "You mean leaving the building?" I asked, "Y-yeah! And you don’t have to worry about transportation and the ‘Manager’ will even treat you to lunch!" Well isn’t that sweet. No thanks. I immediately let them know I was no longer interested in their position and hung up. The bottom line is these people are vultures. They prey on the vulnerably unemployed like myself and attempt to manipulate them into a job they did not sign up for. This job would have been 100% commission without travel expenses. A stark contrast to what was represented to me numerous times before and during the interview process. These scams are happening across the country, I only wish more people were aware of them.
