NBC, Inc/Sky, Inc./Nashville Business Consulting (Nashville, TN)

Nashville Business Consulting/NBC Inc (1200 Clinton St Suite 212, Nashville, TN 37203, 615-891-5260) is a Cydcor ICL (Independently owned Corporate Licensee). Cydcor affiliates advertise entry-level jobs and management training, but in reality they are recruiting for door-to-door commission sales people. Cydcor affiliates use the term "face to face" instead of door-to-door.

If the job ad for entry-level training for sales, marketing, management "sounds too good to be true", be cautious and ask lots of questions during the job interview. Is the job door-to-door sales, commission only, and with no benefits?  Will you be an employee or a contractor? Outside sales require driving which means gasoline expense. Are you sure you really want to work on commission pay driving possibly hundreds of miles a week?

Beware of invitations for an all-day second "interview". If you decide to go to the second "interview", wear comfortable shoes as you will be doing lots of walking trying to sell door-to-door.

ConsUnless you are looking for a 100% commission with no base salary door-to-door sales job (they claim it is "face-to-face" marketing) but they spend 9 months training you how to cold call and be a door-to-door sales person. During the "paid" training there are no medical benefits and unless you just happen to get lucky and make a huge sale your first year, then you should prepare to live off savings for a year or more. If you are a recent college graduate don't be seduced like I was thinking this would be a great entry level job.

Nashville Business Consulting was also known as JPC Inc not too long ago.

    1. They don't have an HR department...it's a bunch of people in a crappy office in a bad part of Nashville. Barely anyone has a college degree in the place and they don't even tell applicants what the job entails before you walk in the door. This is a classic, "get rich quick" scam. Sad.

  8. Hey smarter man? Are u implying that no one should believe this blog? Of course everyone knows not to believe everything u read on the Internet, but when it comes to something like this and several several people are telling everyone else not to waste their time with this comp. then it's prob. True. I went on an interview and I left 5 minutes into it. And u can tell that they r desperate b/c of the way they advertise on job sites like careerbuilder. And the way they answer the phone when u call. Ha. I think u need to change your profile name to something other than "smart man"

  9. First off, I have been working with Nashville business consulting for 3 months now, and for the last 4 weeks I have brought home around $1000 each week. The job is real and works, and on top of that i'm about to get promoted to assistant manager where ill be bringing home about 1800-2000 dollars a week. Right now i am stacking paper while you lazy fucks who don't want to work hard because your in the sun knocking on doors are still looking for a job. But to continue, it is a management training program where within about a year and a half you own your own marketing firm. my female co-worker just got promoted into her own office and now makes six figures. she went from the bottom of making very little money to the top of making six figures within a year and one month to be exact. Ill tell you why most people (LIKE YOU PEOPLE MISS) don't notice opportunity when its right in front of them. Its because opportunity comes dressed in works-mans clothes. So People that want things easy never notice it. SO the next time you wanna make a blog defacing a business, just know there are legal precautions.

    1. I'm just curious how many in this company are like you - succeeding? It's great to hear from one of the few who are able to do well in these jobs, but I'm more concerned about the reality of the numbers of people who are hired on who actually make a livable income.

  10. This is door to door sales. This company is completely scamming applicants that they get and disguise it as "marketing and public relations" when in reality, the owners don't realize what that even is. They have been reported to the better business bureu of Nashville several times. If you are a college graduate- that is, have gone to a LEGITIMITE college; not some community college low life (which is alot of what this company hires) and want to gain actual experience you are better off looking elsewhere or getting a sales job with some validity to it. This job is practically unsafe- it has these kids going to crappy neighborhoods selling crap that noone else wants to sell. DON'T get "sold" on jobs...the reality is, the best jobs sell themselves...

    1. Excuse me, so since I any many others didn't get the opportunity to go to college we are all "low lifes"??? Wow!
      Community college graduates worked just as hard as a campus college graduate as well.. You are very naive and ignorant to be posting these immature comments judging people you don't even know.. Not everybody gets the chance to attend college for many, many reasons that you obviously cannot comprehend and don't deserve to be called "low life's".. We are all just looking for opportunities to improve our selves and work hard to make it in this world.. Grow up and go outside your bubble your living in and go explore the real world and real hard working people..

  11. Hey fuck you Powellm4, work man clothes are steal toes and Jeans/or blue dickies . You wanna talk about being in the sun, how bout you work for my company I'll hand your bitch ass a weedeater and watch you pant like a dog in five minutes while I'm sitting on a mower and me and my REAl employees LOFAO. Shit I'm 23 own a landscape service which I started when I was sixteen and work a full time welding job at night i got those racks and I'm gettin it like ace hood. So don't talk shit to these people that want real jobs cuz your probably the laziest fuck in Nashville for actually doing this bull, it's called the easy way out and getting ripped off all at the same time.Yeah we will see were your at in a year... Stuck like chuck. Don't even ask me what I make, cuz it'll just piss everyone off. The reason I take offense just to let everyone know, Is because they called me. I only have a high school diploma worth about a 2.0 gpa...And I already knew about them, so I told them to hit the road.... It's an insult to me because I am a professional both day and night and a highly payed one and didn't get by wearin a suit and knocking on doors bein a damn pest where I'm from they call that trespassing. Going to school for a profession is definitely respectable.. But don't let these people demean you and your hard earned skills. This dude been working there 3 months and probably only made close to 3500 for one, ask him what he made for the other two.

  12. And it's not a big deal if you want to waste your with this shit. But don't get on and talk shit to people who just want a honest job or want a REAL profession.cuz door knocking is not profession much less a gainful job. If your weak enough to stoop to this level, don't have the nerve to talk shit to the real mother effers. Talkin bout stacking paper when every knows your most likely not. There's honor in hard work and sweat whether your a doctor or a lawn man. Not a door knocker, just a hustler not even the good kind, it's like being the man with fake rolexes and cheap toothbrushes up under your trench coat hustling for a dollar. I'd rather hustle for a livin any day of the year. To the rest of y'all ,,, much respect and you got my prayers to find what your really lookin for. Hell , powellm4s got my prayers to he's gonna need em when he's wasted so much Time playing the pyramid he ends up broke and forgotten what work really is.

  15. NBC depends on how good of a sales person you are. You do have an opportunity to make good money, but you have to be a damn good sales person. I tried it out and after 3 weeks, I left because the job was just NOT for me and it isn't for everyone. I had fun bullshitting with coworkers on the "field" but it wasn't profitable for me. You can advance and have the opportunity to run your own office but you have to be one hell of a sales person in order to do so.

  16. Thanks for being honest Brittany! MOST people would not be good at a job like that, nor would they enjoy it. The "powellm4" jerk-off says a lot for the company! Anyone with his business sense to represent the company like that is lacking GOOD business sense and should have been fired, in my opinion...even if he WAS getting ready to be promoted. Ha ha! More than likely, he found out that it was not what he wanted or claimed it was. Yet another reason to check things out well. Why has Careerbuilder not removed them or made them change the posting? I guess they don't really care as long as they get paid for the spot?

  17. Does anyone know if OLN Inc. is the same as or operating under the name of NBC Inc.? Any connection that you know of between the two? I applied to NBC Inc, ran across this website, withdrew my application from NBC and then a few days later, I have received an email from OLN saying that I applied with them. Granted, I applied with several companies but I sure don't remember applying for OLN. NBC's address is 1200 Clinton St Suite 212 Nashville, TN 37203 and OLN's is 1300 Clinton St. Suite 212, Nashville, TN 37203. STRANGE!

    1. Rebecca, you have saved yourself time and money (gas expense). OLN is the new name of Orange Ltd, another independent Cydcor affiliate. The posting for Orange Ltd on this blog has been updated with the new name of OLN and new information such as their new website and facebook links.

      So, unless you want to work for commission pay, doing face-to-face presentations, driving your car everyday with no gas expense reimbursement and no benefits, go interview and work for these "entry level outsourced sales and marketing" companies.

  18. I was suppose to have an interview with them today at 3. I was extremely turned off by the phone call from HR but decided to set an appointment and give them the benefit of the doubt because, honestly, I am desperate for work. The address I was given doesn't match the one on Google Maps for the company (1300 vs 1200 Clinton street) and I was told it's in or near an old car manufacturing company....

    I'm glad I did a little research because in this economy not everyone can afford gas to drive around to bogus interviews. I will be calling to cancel.

    1. I'm with you Kayla. I called back to the phone number about an hour after speaking with their representative today, she answered the phone "HR" without even mentioning the name of the company, kind of shady. Saved me the gas money and time. Thanks for the heads up here.

  19. HR called me today and it did sound to good which sent me looking for details..she told me they have 3 ways to get paid straight commission, commission +salary and salary only.Thanks to everyone who told about their experience good or bad it helps people make informed decisions.

  20. What about Sky Inc located in Old Hickory, TN? Are they the same?

  21. I want to clear up some air for everyone. I don't normally post reviews about companies I've worked for, but I see a lot of confusion and want to try to address all of it.

    I worked at NBC, inc. for 5 months, immediately after graduating from Baylor University. Regardless of my education, or background, this job was the best job I could have gone to immediately following school. Although I didn't advance to create my own business within NBC or Cydcor, the experiences I learned, the sales training I received (incredible - best place, yet), the leadership skills I developed, the training I was able to give to new reps, and the organizational skills I gained developed me into the excellent Marketing professional I am today for a supply-chain company based in Houston, TX. (I currently run weekly sales training meetings for 18 sales reps, and couldn't have done it without my experience at NBC. I literally use everything I learned in those 5 months and apply it with what I am doing now....three years later!)

    If you're looking for that one job that you're going to settle into for the next 30 years, this probably isn't for you. But if you're looking to gain experience, learn how to sell, and you have the motivation to work 100% commission, then I would recommend this company to you. It's no doubt the hardest job you will ever have, but it is also the best job for you to develop personally and professionally in the shortest amount of time.

    First, I never would call this company a scam. Just like Mary Kay, ACN, and others, this company has a Pyramid Structure. Not a scam. There is a difference. Although they may be vague over the telephone interview which I had to have because I was out of state, the second interview in person tells you everything you need to know about the job. You walk with your interviewer door-to-door talking to customers and helping them learn about the new technology available to them. Yes, the goal is to sell the customer on the product, but it's about connecting with the customer, finding out what problems they have with their current provider, and solving their problems with the new technology. At lunch, your interviewer, explains commission, and how advancement works. It's pretty simple - If you sell a lot, and consistently, you will make a lot of money and you will advance fast within the company. If you don't, you won't make money or advance. So figure out first, what you want to do before you waste your time and theirs.

    I am still so amazed on how ENTITLED everyone thinks they are. Not every company in this country offers benefits or gas money to their sales reps or other employees. Nor should they! But that get's into a whole other issue. Fortunately, you can at least write off your gas/mileage at the end of the year when you file your taxes!

    Even without these benefits, I still was able to work paycheck to paycheck with NEVER having to dip into my savings account. Again, it goes back to what your goal is, and if you are motivated to work hard and learn how to sell.

    So, I end with this: if your goal is to become a better person, leader, and gain more knowledge about sales, then I suggest you work at the hardest job, where you will personally develop what would normally take you 5 years, in just a few months. But if your goal is to settle down into a 9-5 job, sitting at a desk, knowing you'll be receiving the same paycheck every month, then this job is definitely not for you, and you should quit where you are so you don't waste your time or theirs. :)

    I hope this was helpful, and I wish everyone luck with whatever path you choose!

  22. Yeah. so. I went for an interview. First off: there is a sign that tells you which businesses are located in which suites. Theirs wasn't even on there. That was my first apprehension. Then, I go up to where their suite is and they have the BBB sign up, very clear so they can make sure everyone knows they're a real business. They also have the sticker on their front desk. But the fact that they have to show that so clearly was really unnerving to me, as if they're trying to prove something. They also had this really loud and tacky music playing that you can hear from outside of the door. Unprofessional, even though they were trying to make it seem like a cool and hip place to work. About three girls kept switching sitting at the front desk. At one point, someone called and the girl picked up the phone and said she was their "HR", which.. I've never known an HR person to sit at a front desk. The office space in general is completely unprofessional. You can tell they just threw things together to make it seem like they were a legit business. It's definitely door-to-door sales for like AT&T or something and they made it seem like it's so much more when you're on the phone with them. I'm all about outside sales but not door-to-door, the way they do it. It just didn't seem professional at all and I felt weird about it so I left and I'm glad I did, after reading all of this. The fact that they've changed names and location so many times is REALLY shady, too, because now it's Sky Inc and they're located in the Belle Meade Plaza. I'm a very good sales person but sales should also be about a base salary and then commission. Also, they had a bunch of people come in for a "preliminary interview" but basically what they were doing was roping you into going out on the field with them THE FIRST time they had you come in. They didn't even mention this to me. So they're basically scamming you into going on a ride with them without your consent beforehand. I have a second interview for a different company who is actually real and I'm working with a recruiter and it's for outside sales and the difference between these two places is massive. I'm really glad I walked out.
