Robinson Executive Group, Inc. Complaint - Job Seekers Beware - Advertising Sales Promotion
AUBURN HILLS, MICHIGAN -- The Robinson Executive Group, Inc. (also Boss Advertising) advertises that they are looking for entry level account executives. You go for a sham interview (mine included myself and another candidate) and are told you will be contacted to begin work on a "shadowing interview" for which you will be paid. This "interview" consists of walking (mostly) and driving around a certain territory observing how the product
(similar to the Entertainment Book of coupons) is sold door-to door. You are even going into businesses that have "no soliciting" on their doors. After this, you will be hired if the employee whom you've been shadowing feels you are going to be good.
For some reason, I was not found to be good even though I was game but was not dressed appropriately for hiking. When I wrote to the company a week or so later to ask for my pay, I received no response.
This company continues to advertise for the same crappy treatment. I would like future candidates to know the scoop up front. Don't go unless you can afford to waste your time. If you are "hired" you'll be paid only by the amount of coupon books you sell. If you do get called back for the second phase, wear walking shoes and be prepared for inclement weather.
