Interview Details

Once you send in your resume, the HR rep will call you/email you setting up an interview. From there, you go in dressed business professional for a quick 10 minute 1 on 1 interview. These are basic questions, and even if you do terribly, you'll get a call to go back for the longer interview. However, the longer interview will be shadowing a sales person for 7 hours with no way to get out of the situation. Instead of interviewing, you will be walking door to door selling a product/service. When you get back at night, they will have another 5 minute interview, which you'll probably nail due to the elation of finally being back from being a door to door salesman for a day.

In the middle of your second "interview" the person you are shadowing will sit you down and explain the pyramid scheme aspect of the situation. It is 100% commission and you pay your own gas, and if you reach a certain quota a certain number of days, then you get promoted to the same position with a different title. The more people you train, the more commission you get. It is a definite pyramid scheme, which I knew right away when the person I shadowed said, "You see, it's not like a pyramid scheme because the harder you work, the more you can move up in the company. It is 100% merit based."
