Not resolved

Ok, Where to begin?

I answered an ad on careerbuilder.com for what was advertised as an excellent opportunity, i was intrigued so i sent a resume and came in for my first interview.

Tara explained the 'business' to me, got me excited about an 'opportunity' and invited me back for the second round interview.

the second round interview was interesting to say the least.

i got to the office about 9 am and went to 'the field' with one of their fancy titled door to door sales people. the guy was a total *** by the way.

we drove to our area (an hour away, and he said he spent his own money on gas without reimbursement) and then spent the ENTIRE day driving/walking to various businesses, barging in unannounced and demanding to speak to the person in charge. he called it 'taking control' i called it "embarrasing and rude" anyway, the entire day was spent getting kicked out of various local establishments while trying to sell them office supplies, reguardless of wether they needed them or not.

example, a business we walked into had at most, three employees. the salesman, i forgot his name, tried to sell him five boxes of paper. even though the guy had already mentioned that he used one box per year.

i watched as the customer grew angry and frusturated at this sutuation, i could tell he was just trying to be nice and not kick us out. but the sales rep kept pushing and pushing and finally the guy yelled at us and told us he would call the police if he saw us again.

anyway... this business made me follow them around all day with no compensation, didn't even offer to buy me lunch, i had to ask many times to go to the bathroom, i got yelled at for using my phone in his car, he told me it was disrespectful.

i asked him when we were heading back to the office he said we would be back about 5-5:30 because he hadn't made a sale yet and was going to go the extra mile.

i demanded that he take me back early because i couldnt stand to walk into another one of these businesses and embarras myself.

when we got back to the office he brought me up to tara's office where she sat me down and asked me a lot of condescending questions in an attempt to make herself feel superior. things like ' you dont see the obvious advantage to this business?' and tried to sell me on joining her company,

i just said no and left.

my day would have been better spent walking barefoot on broken glass.


here's the jeff foxworthy way of explaining it.

If you are the kind of person that wants to hard sell office supplies to people that cant afford them or do not want them. this job is for you.

if you like to drive your own car over 100 miles a day without any reimbursement. this job is for you

if you like 100% comission sales with no salary or benefits, this job is for you.

if you like to work for a bi*ch of a boss that talks to everyone like she owns them. this job is for you.

if you live in a fantasy world where doing the same thing over and over and over again gets you different results....you're insane.

from what i gather, the average person lasts about 3 weeks at this job. and does not collect a paycheck at the end of it.

avoid this business at all costs!

you have been warned!

Monetary Loss: $30000.

Tara is actually in Philadelphia now as part of Philadelphia Marketing Executives.I knew the scam as soon as I walked through the door.

People should never be that pumped up in the morning. The only reason I'd work there is the bang all the hot girls. Especially Kirby, daymannnn.

Southern Belle who seems too smart to be drinking the juice because she is the one pouring it.Mmmph.

I worked for Cydcor in Birmingham, First interview out of College.It was AT&T that you sold.

It is a scam everywhere. They lie saying you have insurance. that is bs. I quit when they wanted me to drive people, waisting my gas driving 2 hours to Atlanta.

Now Im looking for a job in dfw, 7 called me and when they said bring 2 resumes I knew who it was.Be warned

I applied with one company, went in for the interview, and today got called by Three Seven for an interview.They share the same office, and when I went to get more information this is the first thing that popped up!!!

I feel like a fool!!! NOT HAPPY!!!

There are good workers out there and all we are all doing is trying to find a good job!!!!This company makes me sick!


I went to this interview and got invited to a second but I read these reviews and more.Thank God, I would have been furious if I had to do the door to door ***.

"Human Resources" (Morgan) knew I was coming up form Florida and didn't say a word about this shady business.

Fortunately it didn't matter too much to me because I fly for free but if not I would really be furious.Thank you to everyone who posted this because you saved me from being scammed by these people.

to FL #602334

I was initially confused between Three Seven Marketing and 7 Marketing (guess they changed the co name now).Although thanks to your comment mentioning Morgan from HR, I now know its the same co that responded to my job application in less than 5 minutes of application.

I however confirmed to the interview for tomorrow. Just as I was about to get my formals ready, I realized they didn't mention anything about the job profile and logged in and looked for reviews. This really really helped and I'm relieved that my doubts were right.

I'm not even gonna call them and cancel the interview.It's gonna be a 'No Show'


They don't call the field interview "The Day of O (Observation) anymore? What a scam.



Woah! Before reading this, I had just responded to an email to set up an interview. I'm very thankful for communities of people such as yourselves, who care about their fellow human being enough to warn them about evil scams.

Good luck on the job search, folks!


I would like to thank the poster of this for saving my time and money attending these "interviews". I have included as my complaint the email I sent to Three Seven Marketing's Tara.

I did not attend our interview meeting due to the following:

After researching, I discovered this position appeared to be a scam. I was seeking a real position not door to door sales. Your website tries to be professional however you don't mention anything you do besides assisting fortune 500 companies, the biggest issue I found with your website is that it is not focused towards any potiental customers at all more-so just something you can attach to the bogus posting on careerbuilder.com. Even your Facebook page threw up flags in my head, why has this Amber been promoted so much in less than one calender year. I also began to question it when your job posting states a 4-year degree is required, when communicating on the phone I mentioned more than once I have yet to achieve my 2-year degree; and yet you were going to put me into a sales role geared toward management (which sounded tempting, partially why I first fell for the gimmick) Then I found a testimonial of another person who was told the same.

For the success of your "marketing" firm you may want to take a look at how many people have left comments on your business, on pissedconsumer.com. Please in the future I think you should HIGHLY reconsider how you word your postings on job market web-sites, just be...

I presently work for a fortune 500 company, so why should I leave my desk to walk door to door with no real compensation for my time or gas (which is repulsive, just look at the cost of gas nowadays) .
