Summer Internship Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Luxe Marketing & Sales (Smyrna, TN) in March 2011.
They called me the day after I e-mailed my resume and asked me when the earliest I could come for an interview was. I ended up flying down this past week during my spring break to meet with them. The initial interview was one on one with the office manager. It seemed fairly normal. They told me they were a marketing firm that worked with AT&T U-Verse and marketed to the small population that could receive this fiber optic cable. Fair enough. They asked me to come back for a second interview the next day and clear my schedule from 1pm to 8pm. They said I'd be sort of job shadowing and spend the day with a couple associates meeting "clients" and see what they do. I came back the next day and was nervous when I heard a bunch of young kids in the "conference room" blasting music and playing games which was explained to me that they like to get "psyched up before they go out." Um okay. Not very professional, but whatever. They had me go out with two young men who would spend the first half of the day getting to know me, and asked me to save any questions about the job until after lunch, which I now know was so I wouldn't run away and ask them to take me back to the office. These people are not "marketing specialists." They are door to door sales people who lie and talk trash about their "clients" who are randomly selected in neighborhoods. I wasn't told to wear comfortable walking shoes and ended up with blisters all over my feet, a dog almost pissing on me, and some kid who was feeding me a shpiel about their company. Every word pertaining to the job that came out of anyone's mouth sounded rehearsed including the, "Now, if I thought I would be doing this part of the job for a long period of time I would have never taken it, obviously." This company promises these children fast advancement and the ability to run their own office anywhere they'd like within 2 years where they will then be making a 6 figure salary....Yeah...OKAY! STAY AWAY from this company. They are a joke. And when a "client" tells them to get off their property and that they are not interested, they proceed by walking away mumbling rude comments under their breath. Not to mention if a customer says they will call them after talking with their spouse if they want it, the guy gave the customers a fake number and then after complained that the "client" doesn't get how it works and he would not be waiting around for him to call to be ready when he wants to be. Basically, if you're a sucker and want to be that annoying guy who knocks on your front door step, then this is the job for you.
