I worked for them for 4 years 1998-****. .

While most of what you say is fairly three as it is a commission based sales job. As a salesman you are responsible for earning your own way but they did pay room and board, travel and when I was with them we had company vehicles. I learned very quickly , you either are going to suck at sales or you have enough skin to stick it out after hundred of NOs and doors slammed in your face.

I traveled the USA, did 2 years in Mexico and most the most money I’ve ever made in sales as sales rep manager crew leader eventually. That sucks you had a negative experience but sounds like you have a pretty negative view on rough challenges.

Thanks for the Heads up!

I just wanted to thank all of you out there for the heads up about NorthStar Marketing. I had an interview scheduled for tomorrow, and I will not be attending. They sound extremely bogus....... It is places like this that just waste the time of people who are really trying to find good, solid, employment. I think that I will give them a visit in the next week or so and tell them what I think about there *** company face to face. I wasted at least 8 hours talking with them about employment, what a waste... Stay away people, stay away.... Thanks!

NorthStar Marketing in Portland, OR

I have to agree with all of the comments above. I interviewed for the branch in Portland, OR and it seemed like a scam from the very beginning. The "marketing department" was located in a shady building south of Portland. NorthStar Marketing was not listed on the sign outside even though they have been established in Portland since mid-2007. And they were willing to hire me on the spot if we "fit". Being a female, I was extremely cautious of this company and did some research before I went back for my second interview. I'm not sure if safety is a concern but if you are a woman, I would not go on the "second all day interview". I have worked for notable companies across the nation. The interview process for this fake company should send up red flags. Their website alone should warn you to stay away. Nothing is copyrighted. The Portland (Tigard, OR) branch uses yahoo accounts. That is a huge warning. "Top marketing firms" don't use yahoo accounts. Bottom line. Beware. Stay away. Protect yourself.

Kelly- I think I worked with you! Didn't you have bleach blond hair?

HAHAHAHA!! Remember Jason the "hook" - AKA T-Rex? Shawn Horvath? Shane St.

Germain? Lessee here... who else... I can't believe I can't remember Norm's last name.

Then there was the indian dude- lightfoot- he was my driver for a while. Or wait blackfoot. There was a little pud from Oklahoma- real weirdo with a big nose- but he was kind of like the mascot. Dang- I forgot about that stuff.

HAHAHAHAHA!! Good Times... Some of them were awful- we were just making house payments for that big house in Balboa that belonged to Trev-Dog.

I remember they found a roach in my van once and Trevor called me a no-good-n**ger-d*ck-s*cking-hippie. That was pretty awful- but I shouldn't have been smoking and working I guess.
