North - Rebuttal

Dear Concerned Job-Seekers, After reading these complaints, we believe it is necessary to address the obvious concerns being discussed on this page. It is unfortunate that certain individuals have had such negative experiences with our firm. We have made note of your criticism and we are adjusting and improving accordingly. We appreciate your feedback! We wish to address certain complaints noted in previous posts. First, North is NOT a scam. North is a Better Business Bureau accredited firm and we work with several Fortune 500 countries nationwide. We've been outsourced by these companies to handle their face-to-face sales and marketing in the local market. Secondly, there seems to be some confusion with regards to our Management Training Program. Each employee of our firm began as an entry-level Account Manager. From that point on, our employees follow our successful training program on course to a Management position within our organization. Like Mary stated in her review, we are NOT looking to hire career sales individuals. Instead we hope to hire hard-working and motivated individuals interested in a career in Management within the sales and marketing industries. As our market continues to expand, our firm grows. As Leaders are promoted to Assistant Managers and Assistant Managers are promoted to Managers (and open additional offices for us across the country!), positions in our sales and marketing department become available and we pursue qualified and enthusiastic individuals wishing to succeed in our industry . This leads us to our third point, several individuals noted that they received numerous phone calls from our Human Resources Department. While some view our persistence as a sign of our illegitimacy, we view it as enthusiasm! When we find and receive resumes that interest us, we are excited to bring these individuals in for an interview as soon as possible. And this method of recruiting talented individuals has served us well since we opened our doors in 2006. Again we wish to express our gratitude for the valuable feedback expressed on this page. We hope this response has cleared up some of your concerns. Please feel free to visit our website (www.the-north.org). Any additional questions and concerns can be sent directly to our HR department by way of the contact information listed on our website. Sincerely, North, Inc.

And why is it that ALL of these 'marketing firms' or "outsourced sales" HAVE THE SAME WEBSITE LAYOUT, pretty much? Seems to suggest that the SAME co. or owners (Cydcor, in other words) run all these things, and it's not just spontaneous or "a bunch of regular entrepreneurs starting independent companies."

And why the *** are you using a gmail account?? Seriously...?

THAT kind of *** is what makes people suspicious! Isn't the company url www.thenorth.org or something like that? So why isn't the address after @ "north.org"??

Please...

spare me the excuses. Scammers never admit it.

North's only been around for a few years, but you expect me to believe AT&T finds your "credentials" and 'reputation' SO AWESOME that they'll entrust you to "give them lots more business", even though, I'm sure, At&t ALREADY GENERATES BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR IN PROFITS. What do they need some dinky-*** firm in downtown STL's help for?

I think calling you guys a scam is a bit harsh, but when you use vague language and don't describe exactly what the job seeker will do they get suspicious.
