    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Detroit Business Consulting (Troy, MI) in May 2017.

    Interview

    What... the actual hell. It is PAINFULLY clear that this is a pyramid scheme. I'm literally in the middle of my second "phone interview" now, and he is selling the company to me so hard that I can't get a word in edgewise. So I'm typing this review instead.

    Advice to people who are just starting out on the job search: If someone reaches out to you, without you even applying, mere hours after you update your LinkedIn and apply to a handful of jobs, it is definitely a scam. You are not that desirable unless you actually have some experience. NO company would be willing to sacrifice any credibility on a newbie like that. The thing is, this company has no credibility, so that's fine.

    As for the interview, I got a voice message from one manager and decided to call her back just to see who she was (like I said, I didn't apply to the position, so I wanted to at least know what the position was). The first girl was legit. She was talking up the company really well, saying they just started expanding (based in Michigan, but just opened two offices in Chicago), and they hope to be international soon. She was super nice and we actually got along really well. I could actually see us being friends, so it's a shame that she has such low morals to work for a sham company. She did the whole "Oh my god, I NEVER do this, but I'm going to go ahead and put you through to the second round interviews right now." Another note to newbies, when people say "Oh my god, I NEVER do this," it means they ALWAYS do whatever it is they're doing.

    The second interview.......... This freakin' guy. First of all, if you want an interview to seem believable, you need to actually ask the interviewee some questions. He has been sitting here selling this company to me for the past half hour, when I'm the one who should be selling myself to HIM, if he was at all credible. I've literally been typing this the whole past 10 minutes and I've been able to get away with "mmhmm" and "Wow!" and he couldn't care less. He's clearly reading form a script. Oh my god!! Remember how I told you the girl yesterday said they're just starting to expand? This guy is talking about how they "have offices in hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of countries" and he travels all the time. I wonder what he would have said if I had said "no" to the "do you like to travel" question.

    **WARNING** They're going to try to make themselves seem credible by saying they've been consistently rated one of the best places to work in Michigan.
    A. There are not a lot of great places to work in Michigan (sorry, I'm an educated, experienced person who's relocating to the Detroit area from Chicago, and the sad fact is there is just not a lot of opportunity there compared to other urban areas), so that's not saying much.
    B. I googled it. They're at the bottom of the list.
    C. They're only rated one of the best places to work because the higher ups get sporting event and concert tickets as bonuses. I don't need baseball tickets, I need a salary.

    If you're a spoiled, rich kid still living with mommy and daddy and don't have anything to actually worry about and you're just bored sitting at home in your diamond bedroom, by all means, take the job. Just know that all you are is a door-to-door solicitor. They're going to call it "sales," and dodge any specific questions about what you will actually be doing for such little pay, but I'll be the one to tell you is all you will be doing is going door to door asking people to put money in your CEO's picket. You are better than this garbage job, whoever you are.
