Below is feedback on Kinetic Marketing Group. Good Luck!!
It istypical 100?ommission door to door sale's job to me. Check out the BBB website or a anti-scam site for other information.
I just had an interview with them. Complete waste of time. I traveled an hour and a half one way for a 10 minute "interview". Didn't go over my resumé, barely explained what the company did and when I set up the interview I was told I was applying for a position in San francisco not pleasent hill. The building did not seem like a marketing/advertising firm. There was no sign labeling the name of the company inside or outside. Billy Madison was playing while everyone just saga around. When I asked how a typical day went the person who interviewed me kept avoiding giving me details. I was told I would more than likely be called back for a second interview which would involve me shadowing a full typical day. If that sounds like fun go knock yourself out, but not my idea of a marketing position.
My friend worked for a similar company in college, Cutco knives, when she couldn't find a summer job. She actually made a fair amount of money because she was able to pimp out to all her friends and relatives and convince them to buy knives. That said, I can't imagine this type of scheme working as a long-term job. You'd have to be an amazing salesperson to keep convincing people to come into their homes and buy things.
.B., I am glad you cancelled your interview with Kinetic (Pleasant HIll, CA). You would have wasted your time, gas money and energy scamming residential and small business customers into buying things or services they did not want or cannot afford to buy.
I would not group Celebrity Foods (Concord, CA) http://www.celebrityfood…
, with the Kinetic and the infamous Vector Marketing /Cutco Cutlery Corporation. On http://craigslist.org,
I have seen a couple of postings for http://celebrityfoods.com
and a few postings for http://schwans.com
which are both shop at home food services.
Both Celebrity Foods and Schwans do have outside sales reps, but they do use deceptive tactics to recruit sales reps like Cydcor affiliates (Kinetic and Dzurenda) or Vector Marketing. Although the Cydcor affiliates do state on their websites and Craigslist ads that they hire for face-to-face sales, the deception is that the new sales reps are trained to work long hours to deceive small business owners into buying services or upgrades for which they do not need and the reps receive little commisions for all their hours spent on trying to make the sales. The problem with Vector Marketing is that they do heavy advertising to recruit college students stating an hourly pay rate of $16 which is not true. Vector Marketing sales reps only make money after they sell the very expensive cutlery (knives). I have read that Vector Marketing sales representatives have to make a security deposit of $135 + tax in order to procure a set of knives for demonstrations. VM reps are taught to try to sell to their family and friends which I think is sad because how many people really want to spend $200 - $300 on a set of kitchen knives when they already have knives. Me personally, I use one paring knife and one Chinese cleaver to do all my cutting. I would not spend $300 on knives even if a very sexy 18-year-old girl knocked on my door and begged me. Ha ha ha.
