What do all of these companies have in common? They ALL claim to be the area's leading marketing, advertising, and acquisitions firm in the Tampa Bay Area. Another thing they have in common is that all of these companies are affiliates of Smart Circle.. One of the largest multi-level-marketing companies in the country.
You've probably seen the ads for these companies spammed all over job search sites such as Craigslist, Monster, Indeed, and career builder. The ads state they are looking for business associates, entry-level managers, sports-minded people, junior account managers, expanding rapidly hiring immediately, and other positions.
These are are designed for the sole purpose of getting you to submit your resume. These positions DO.NOT.EXIST. All they offer is door-to-door sales selling Verizon FiOs, coupon books, or selling direct TV in big box stores like Walmart, Best Buy, Sam's Club, Home Depot, and Lowes.
Their 'guaranteed' weekly pay is subject to what they call a Claw back, they don't offer benefits, nor will they reimburse you for mileage. If you bring these issues up, you will be accused of being negative, or wanting a 9-5 job. They claim they have relationships with these companies, they do not. Smart Circle does.
Another tool they use to look legit are websites that rely heavily on flash and social media feeds. However once you get past the pizazz, you will find very little of substance.
Their Facebook pages are littered with motivational posters, and links to pointless articles. All of this looks like a great opportunity to a new college graduate, or high school student, but to anyone with any kind of experience in the work force will smell the scam a mile away.
The best thing you can do for yourself and fellow citizens is to file complaints on ripoff report. Com or any other consumer website. Also, contact your local leaders and news channels. Don't buy into their scam.
