Beware

The first interview seems legit enough. They bring you into an office and describe how you will be working in "sales and marketing". Very vague. Then reality sets in. The second interview they will bring you out on the road and will show you that the job entails going door to door selling makeup products. Yes that's right. You are expected to go through office parks, knock on doors and try to convince people to buy cosmetics. I walked away right then and there.

Beware, NewGen Management, Woburn, MA

I applied for a Management position at NewGen Management through the "quick-apply" check box method. I was apprehensive since the job details were sketchy, but I showed for what I thought was a personal interview, but there were several of us scheduled at the same time. At this point, I was told the position was "entry level". I'm mid-career, MBA, so I was taken aback as to how I was contacted in the first place. I tried to make lemonade out of lemons for what was going to be a presentation. Several of us were called to get the one-on-one interview with various managers, as was I. It is for "cold-selling" cosmetics, going door-to-door in industrial parks without a prior phone call or previously arranged appointment. You are just going to "rudely barge in" and hope you don't get shown the door because you interrupted the workflow of whomever you get to pitch to. When I expressed my disdain for this type of selling, the interview ended rather quickly, satisfactorily, to both of us. Needless to say, I don't know many sales people who gain success by rudely breaking in on someone's schedule (male or female) unannounced, to sell cosmetics.
