Default Re: Got a Call to set up a job interview... Research pays! -SCAM!

When I was looking for work and going on job websites, I got quite a few calls and emails like that. The first call I got was for an "account manager." Sounds pretty good, right? I do have management experience, so that wasn't concerning. After googling the company name, I found out that an account manager for that company is a door to door salesman selling internet/tv/phone bundles. You have to use your own phone and car at your own cost, and you only make commission. I don't know if that was a pyramid scheme but it sure seemed like it. I cancelled my interview.

Sometimes they are recruiters for staffing agencies, which aren't scams but which have the potential to really screw you over. There are reputable temp agencies, but they don't cruise job sites looking for desperate people to call and they don't misrepresent themselves.
