Let me start by saying this: If you are a recent college graduate looking for an Entry Level career in Marketing, this is not your place. I sent my resume in to Accelerated Marketing Solutions after seeing an ad for a Marketing Assistant and Coordinator position on LinkedIn. It’s on LinkedIn, how sketchy could it be right? I got a call two days later from a woman named Jennifer wanting to set up an interview with me the next day. Of course I was estatic. That is, until the interview day came. The day of the interview, I pull up to an industrial park that looks like the set of a CSI investigation. I didn’t even want to get out of my car, but it was a short walk to the building so I sucked it up and walked up to the second floor where the company is located. I walk into a waiting room that’s about 8 x 10 feet packed with about 15 other college aged applicants. The room itself was absolutely disgusting. Stains and old gum all over the carpet, which looked like it was picked up off the side of the road somewhere in the industrial park, and gross tables and chairs scattered around the room. This didn’t exactly make me feel like this was a professional company I was applying for. I walked up to the waiting room window and was greeted by a very nice young girl, probably to make the candidates feel like it was a great “company”. She handed me a sheet and told me to fill it out and hand it back in with my resume. The sheet was probably the shittiest version of a job application I’ve ever seen. It too looked uprofessional and asked me to fill the sheet out with the exact same information that would be on any normal resume, which was pretty annoying. I handed my sheet in and opted out of sitting in one of the chairs while I waited for fear that I’d contract some sort of disease. I had a 1:15 interview and wasn’t even called in for my interview until 2:20. Again, unprofessional. My name is called by a very young man named Drew. I’m a college grad and he looked no older than me. By this point, I had decided that I would not be working for this company, but I figured I’d go in to for the interview just for some experience. I’m brought into Drew’s office which is clad with the Walmart furniture I read about on reviews on here. The room was essentially bare with the exception of this desk and two chairs. He proceeds to tell me this first interview would be a way to see if you’re a good fit for the company and position. As he’s asking me questions about sales and sales goals, I realized that I had also been tricked into thinking this was a Marketing Coordinator position. What the company had done, which after research I had seen that they had done to a number of other people, had tricked me into one position and then tried to get me into sales to make them more money. Complete scam. I decided then and there that I was going to blow my interview. If they were going to waste my time, I was going to waste theirs. I answered the rest of his questions with probably the worst answers I’ve given in any interview, AND THEY STILL ASKED ME TO COME BACK FOR THE SECOND INTERVIEW. They must be really desperate to get people in there and make them more money. Before I left his office, Drew proceeded to tell him that I can be successful like him and make “Six figures” if I take a job here. If he’s so successful, why is the only thing in his office a Walmart desk? Needless to say, I won’t be going back for the second interview. When I got home from this interview I figured I’d do a little research on my friend Drew. Apparently he’s 21 years old. 21 year old president of a company? Yeah, how much executive experience have you racked up to earn that title? Give me a break. This kid probably just graduated college and threw together some piece of shit company in order to avoid working for the man. I learned another thing about Drew through my research. Turns out, he was recently arrested on charges of unregistered home improvement sales and soliciting without a permit. If the president of the company has a criminal record in a field related to the company, what does that say about the company? If you’re a recent college grad, don’t let them trick you. You can do better. .
