My last semester of undergrad is coming up and I am starting to look and apply for jobs. My degree is in Marketing/Management with a dual degree in Entreprenuership. I am mainly looking in the banking/financial field, but I found an Ad for a Sales position at a local communication company. Here was the Ad:
We are looking for managers and sales agents to represent the new sales campaign.
NO experience needed!
Recent High School/College graduates welcome.<br />Must be able to pass background and drug test.<br />Reliable transportation is a plus.<br />Applicants should be great communicators and should also have a good sense of humor and be open to anything!
We interview applicants from various backgrounds, so don’t count yourself out for this great opportunity!
Email me your resume at (removed) for more information and to schedule an interview!
Okay, so I applied for the job by sending my resume to the e-mail provided. I was excited because I don’t have much of a background in sales and they said there’s no experience needed. The lady e-mailed me almost immediately and said the “district manager” would be in touch to set up the interview.
A few days later, let’s call him Mark, called me and he seemed really straight forward and stern-but I thought he’s a district manager…no big deal. He told me the interview will be held at 9 a.m. Monday morning and gave me the address. He said the doors will be locked and won’t be unlocked until he arrives at “9 o’clock sharp.” Okay.
So yesterday morning my husband’s car wouldn’t start and he needed to take my car to work. It was 5 a.m. so I e-mailed the same lady I sent my resume to and said I was going to need to reschedule for Tuesday due to my husband’s car problems. I went back to sleep for a few hours and woke up at 8 a.m. to SEVEN text messages from Mark!
“Hello BakerBee. This is Mark. So there is no way you can come today?”
“What about at 10?”
“That will give you an extra hour to find a ride.”
“Are you coming today?!”
“HELLO! I need an answer!”
What. On. Earth. Needless to say, I didn’t reply. I was so freaked out I called my husband and read him the text messages. He told me to Google Map the address Mark gave me and it turned out it was an empty parking lot! Who knows what would have happened if I actually went to the “interview.” I also e-mailed the job site I found the listing on and told them what happened and they have since removed the Ad. My BIL is a police officer and I told him about it as well.
