    Pros

    The Corporate Trainers were fine

    Cons

    It’s an overly uncompetitive job with a unrealistic pay scale. Lies, over saturation, you name it. This job is not for anyone who recently graduated from college with a degree.

    Pros

    They'll give you a job no matter what

    Cons

    Oh where to begin?

    i. It's a scam
    ii. They'll lie to you about what the job is
    iii. You won't make nearly as much money as they promise
    iv. It's a scam

    Seriously, if you're struggling for money, don't take this job. You're literally better off working a minimum-wage job, you'll make more money there.

    Dirty Office. Bad Management/Office staff. Total scam.

    Cons

    They scam you to think through the webpage that they are a Great firm when in reality they do scam jobs and advertise like they have a salary base when in reality if you earn 200 p week you need to thank them.
    The Ceo is underprepared and in the lower level of knowledge, yes, he is trained to sell you the lies.

    If you want people to work for free don't call career people ir Graduates.
