    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at JAM.


    Walked into a very informal setting of five or six twenty-somethings. The 'interview' was much less of an interview and more of a sales pitch; they glorified the position and mentioned a few times how I would be in a management position within months. The person conducting the interview went as far as to tell me his salary which I found extremely unprofessional. After five minutes of listening and not giving any personal background information, I was invited to meet them 'on site' the following day. I did show up but already knew it was a scam. I left that moment and never looked back.
