Veritas Inc. (Atlanta, GA)

Veritas Inc is a Cydcor ICL (Independently owned Corporate Licensee) located in Atlanta, GA. 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.

  1. This company contacted me today. The guy was upfront about them being a sales and marketing firm in downtown Atlanta. The guy asked if I would be interested in a position there. I politely said, "Not really." And that was that. We ended the call.

    The man said that he saw my resume online (I believe Careerbuilder). I'm thinking that I should take it down because I am not a salesperson and I do not want these companies trying to get me to do sales.

    1. Well Im happy i decided to look up this company because they contacted me today and i have an interview tomorrow. I explain to the lady i dont have management exp. and she was like, Oh well we train you... and i wasnt feeling the drive anyway..I get real suspicious about jobs that say they found me on career builder.. and i didnt apply for them. Which means i wasnt interested thats why i didnt apply.

  2. They just called me and she didn't tell me upfront if the job was commission based although I asked. My resume is on careerbuilder too and I'm with you, Janaya, I am not a salesperson, either.

  3. Thanks for the Blog!!! I received a last attempt email which made me go back to my resume to first see if my contact number was correct, then I looked at website which made NO SENSE under the "Who We Are" tab, which said absolutely nothing and to that the people in the photo all wore cheap suits..."Sorry I pay attention to details" and those little details such as clothing tells me they weren't making any money. So I just clicked on it as SPAM.

  4. I just received a voice and email stating:
    This is Carina Wingel, HR Assistant with Veritas, Incorporated. Thank you for applying with our company!

    You've recently applied for our Account Manager position. After reviewing your resume I feel you would be a great potential match for this role. If hired for the Account Manager position it would be full-time, located here in Buckhead, Atlanta.

    I would love to discuss the position and a possible interview for tomorrow. I can be reached anytime before 6pm.

    Talk to you soon,

    The email address this came from was a gmail account (veritasincatlanta@gmail.com) which I have learned that most companies (that present themselves with stock pics of people in suits)spare the expense to purchase a company email address. I am truly thankful I decided to google the company before calling them back. This sounds like a waste of time for I am not sales material.

  5. I was just contacted today and I am so very glad that I did not attempt to call off for a complete waist of time. You're blog has been very fruitful in giving this much need insight. Thanks so much!

  6. I am so glad I found this blog. I was contacted by Veritas on this past Friday. I was so happy that I was being contacted, by phone & email (just like @ChocolateGirlNtheCorner's account) that I gave them a call back and scheduled an interview for this Monday. After my emotions calmed down, I thought about everything said. Like "you applied for this position". Lie. I keep record of the companies and positions I apply for and Veritas Inc is no where on my record. Nor would I apply for the position of account manager. That reeks of "sales". And I am fully aware and comfortable knowing that I am not a sales person. This is shameful. I'm canceling my "interview".
    Thanks again for posting this.

  9. this is a helpful blog. I was pushed for an interview but told them I am already employed and could not make the time she offered. Told her I would call her back once I check my schedule. After reading this, I will not be calling back.

  10. Very Helpful blog! Great idea. I JUST got off the phone with the representative. Being that I live in Gwinnett county, I didn't want to waste my time going all the way to Buckhead for an interview before I google the company (because I didn't apply for this job)

    The lady said its a business management job so I'd be a manager. Sounds like an amazing opportunity. . . that's why I'm not going.

    1. I applied for several Management positions on yesterday, so I could not say that I didnt apply. I too live in Gwinnett and dont want to waste my PTO, time in the GA Heat, or my GAS. I went on a goose chase with an Insurance Company in Gainesville. A bunch of B-O-L-O-G-N-A. They had a large group of us---all dressed up to be told that they are recruiting Insurance Agents (door-to-door sales). Messed up my day, wasting my time and a good DAY OFF.

  11. I was contacted today by a woman named Jamie at 404-869-0018, stating that her manager saw my resume and wanted her to call me. After asking me three brief questions, she then asked for a face-to-face interview. I am currently relocating to the Atlanta area and looking to obtain a position in management. I advised I would have to meet next Monday the 25th. I decided to do some additional research as I looked for a flight from Wisconsin and I found this blog. I would have been highly upset if I wasted my money and time for some entry-level position selling anything door-to-door. Jamie was not upfront about the position and described it as a management position. I called Jamie back after reading this blog and she then confessed it is some type of door-to-door entry level position. (YIKES)I would like to thank the people who posted this blog about the company Versitas Inc!!!

    1. Got the same call from the same person on today. When questioned, Jaimie gave me the Web-address only and told me that her Manager was better qualified to further explain Verritas and what they were looking for and offering.

      Delete
    2. Oh ....Jaimie did say that they would PAY ME for the 1ST 3 WEEKS. She did give me that much info. With that I came to the conclusion that it had to be SALES. I am not a Salesperson. NOT!

  12. I worked for them for a month, and its pretty simple. Everything you think it is, it is. It is door to door sales, straight commission, and no benefits. They tell you to write off food, gas, and every other expense as a tax write off. The job isn't overly hard. The hardest part is staying focused and getting past all the "no's" from businesses. It is a lot of driving which does suck, but I enjoyed the people I worked with. Majority of them are young kids out of college who are still being supported strongly by their parents. They do try and sell you on the company because they need you in order to get promoted. Their "team" has to make 4k in commission, for 2 weeks consecutively in order to get promoted to assistant manager, and thats assuming that there is an assistant manager role available. Ed is a nice guy, and he's very friendly, but he feeds you the wealth bullshit everyday. It gets old. If you aren't interested in doing business to business, door to door sales for probably 15 months, don't go in. I mean I made about $600 a week for a couple weeks, but i would leave my house at 7am, and get back at 7pm, so I was working about 60 hours a week.

  13. I am so glad that I found this BLOG as well. I dont have PTO to waste on dead-end leads. I instantly started asking questions and the only 1 answer I got was the Company Web Address. I searched the company and discovered this. Wow! I will not call back for and interview appt.
    Ridiculous waste of employed peoples time. I am looking for advancement, not a set back.
    They should Market to those who have no jobs and do not collect unemployment. SMH

  14. Thank you for saving me gas money! Omg I would've felt stupid driving from Gwinnett County (45 minutes) only to be told about this joke of a job. In a time like this, when so many honest people are looking for a job, they're setting up many new employees for disappointment. I knew the lady on the phone sounded too nice.

  15. Thank you Jesus! I will not be attending my interview. I just read everyone's comments and I'm glad I did. I felt like something was up with this offer. I will not be leaving Gwinnett County tomorrow for Buckhead, lol.. Thanks a bunch

  16. I have an interview scheduled today at 3 (curious if anyone else does as the MO for these companies tend to be group interviews..)and was debating on going. I am not at a point of desperately looking for a job, but this is a great resource to know about some questionable positions...

    Thanks for creating it

  17. I was just called for an interview tomorrow morning at 10am. I'm glad this blog was posted. I called the company back and they told me that it wasn't a door- to- door sales position, but a junior executive position. What is a junior executive anyways lol. I'm not going to drive to Buckhead from Lithonia with the little gas money i have left for a BS interview. I'm tired of these scams and i wish people would stop lying so much, we are desperate for jobs. Its too many job scams in Atlanta.

  18. Well I have an interview for Monday the 23rd. After I started reading this blog and other information:

    http://www.ripoffreport.com/cult-organizations/veritas-inc/veritas-inc-veritas-atlanta-885f3.htm

    I called Jaimie Leandro HR Assistant Veritas, Incorporated. 404-869-0015 back and inquired if the company was previously named Wentworth Marketing. I also asked her questions about what was posted about the company. She informed me of the companies rating and their contract with Comcast which has pre-selected customers to contact.

    After speaking with her and taking into consideration what I have read in this blog, I am going to meet with them for the interview. I will let everyone know what take place and I applied with them without being contacted by them first.

    1. I just came back from my first interview. It seems that what everyone was saying is not true at this present time. I don't know about the past but now this company looks to be a great company to work for. According to Trish, the reason for the name change from Wentworth Marketing to Veritas was due to a company with a similar name running scams which caused this company to pay for it. One of the contracts that the company has reimbursed for gas and they do provide health benefits alone with 401K matching. Also there is no cold calling, Comcast provide the names of prescreened business that “want” more services. Because of incentives that the company now offer the turnover rate is really low and they pay $$$$ plus commission hiring you as an employee and not a contractor providing a W2 every year. Also the interview was not rushed and she allowed me to ask any question that I wanted. If anyone has any questions about my interview experience please asks.

  21. kennyj, do they reimburse for gas? I could eat up 600 a week in gas very easily.

    1. Yes, Comcast reimburse so much per mile.

      Delete
    2. FYI, Comcast employees are paid a base salary plus uncapped commissions and they are paid mileage reimbursement, but third-party companies that contract with Comcast to sign up residential or business customer are not reimbursed for mileage because they are not employees of Comcast but contractors.

      Veritas, Inc (Atlanta) is an independently owned corporate licensee of Cydcor. Cydcor negotiates contracts with AT&T, Verizon and Comcast to resell services. The local Cydcor affiliates such as Veritas only deal with the corporate Cydcor office. The local, regional and headquarter offices of AT&T, Verizon and Comcast have never heard of Veritas or any of the other hundreds of independent Cydcor affiliates.

      A Cydcor affiliate such as Veritas that provides 401k matching? Really? If you interview with Veritas, ask about the pay structure (100% commission, base salary plus commission), health insurance, dental insurance, vacation, and mileage reimbursement. Will you be "hired" as an independent contractor or as an employee of Veritas? It has been reported by former employees of other Cydcor affiliates that the base salary is $300 per week plus $50 commission per sale or 100% commission at 10% per sale.

      Regarding management opportunities, you could sell services and recruit to build your own sales team and maybe manage or own your own Cydcor local office, but do you really want to relocate hundreds or thousands of miles from your current home to operate an independently owned local Cydcor office?

    4. I WILL tell you, from a couple months experience there, they do NOT have health benefits (Ed says that every time he has his "rags to riches" meeting every Friday)they do NOT reimburse you for gas. I asked Trish myself one day and she looked at me like I was stupid. And you don't "cold call" anyone, you go from business to business and "try" to get them to either upgrade or get the service. 90% of the places I went into threw me out, because I told them their name was on the lead sheet, and they said they've never had Comcast, and NEVER want it. I don't see how you people read these comments and STILL go to the interview. I'm telling you as an actual person that worked there. STAY AWAY from VERITAS!!!!

    5. Apology to Kaity Mason. Her earlier comment, posted on 09/21/12, was accidentally deleted when two false testimonials from former/current employees or defenders of Veritas Atlanta were deleted.

      Kaity Mason has left a new comment on your post "Veritas Inc. (Atlanta, GA)":

      I worked for Veritas for almost 3 months. The hours were HIDEOUSLY long. I woke up at 5 every morning, got dressed and left my house NO LATER than 6:45 to get there by 8... wouldnt be out in the field till 11, then have to drive around ALL day, in random parts of Atlanta, then have to drive back to the office at the end of the day for another meeting, and then sit in traffic all the way home, getting home around 7:30 and going to bed by 10. This whole time, I had to pay for my own gas in my car, and It exhausted me. The people there are really nice, don't get me wrong, but if you want to work 50+ hours a week and sometimes only bringing home $100 paycheck...then by all means.

    After reading this article, I called the young lady back and ask her what type of position would I be interviewing for and she informed me that it was "Management Training for AT&T. I then informed her that I would not be interested in the position.

  29. I have an interview this morning I also went to their website to get information about the company. Thanks so much for the log after reading all of the comments I think I will pass I'm definitely not a salesperson. I got stuck with one of these companies a few months ago in Alpharetta I was too pissed to have wasted the gas since I live near the airport. The only good thing that came out of that was m best and I had lunch out there that day. Thanks everyone Happy Friday!!

    1. I just had an interview this morning. I actually think it went very well. They answered all my questions about benefits to compensation. Overall the company was very nice to me....its was kinda of breath of fresh air compared to all the other companies that I have interviewed with. So to be honest I'm not understanding all the negative comments about the company. Its funny how people believe everything they read on the internet.

    3. Samantha, everyone who reads and follows this blog would love to know about your experience during the all-day "interview". We would love to know the details of their benefits and compensation. Most Cydcor affiliates do not offer "benefits" such as health insurance and vacation/paid-time-off. The compensation is usually 100% commission or $300 per week plus $50 commission per sale. This 100% commission per sale or $300 salary plus $50 commission per sale compensation structure has been reported by many people who interviewed or worked for different Cydcor affiliates.

    4. THE REPORTER:

      for all the negative things you write about these businesses it makes me think you either profit money from these blogs or are a competitor. I doubt you invest this amount of time for your health or the well being of others. Also, even though veritas may not have a 401k or anything like that, they do offer someone the ability to own their own business...does that qualify as a "benefit" to you or do you only consider dental and vision insurance a benefit? Comcast would never give their employees that opportunity. People have to weigh out the cost/benefit and make a decision as to how they want to live. - take a risk to earn something big, or just get a sales job. Being an overachiever is not for everyone, but it is for some.

  30. Wow Thank God I came across this blog. Received a email this morning from Jaimie Leandro about my resume. Called her back and set an interview with Trish for Monday @ 10:30. Samantha Lungusta is right you should not believe everything you read on the internet but when a company has reviews that is all over the place SOMETHING IS WRONG!!!!!. Samantha and Kennyj wrote good reviews but one thing they NEVER GOT HIRED!!!!. Kaity was hired for 2-3 months and explained in details how the company really operates thank GOD for her review. I appreciate this blog and all the reviews are current I WILL NOT BE ATTENDING THIS INTERVIEW THIS IS ASHAME.

  31. Another little thing to point out. Have you noticed that out of the 50+ offices Veritas apparently has from Atlanta to Seattle, the one in Atlanta is the only one with an address or phone number. What happened to their original office in Denver? Most companies have a link to all of their offices, where as Veritas' seem to be hard to find.

  32. Wow ok they called me today to set up an interview for Monday but it seems to be a illegitimate offer and I'm very happy to have crossed this site.

  33. I currently work for veritas inc in Atlanta . I am fairly disappointed in the reviews I've read on this blog. I would like to clarify things that have been brought up by other people. First, Ed, the owner is a very kind and considerate man.. Very down to earth owner in a corporate environment. Within 2 weeks of employment he knew my Childs name off the top of his head from a brief conversation we'd previously engaged in. Also, every company event has been family friendly. This position is commission based up until the assistant management position. You do drive your own vehicle, and pay for your own gas HOWEVER you are eligible for a substantial reimbursement when filing your taxes. . Something along the lines of .60/mile I believe. It is long hours, 8 am to 6pm but again, they are family friendly and are willing to accommodate your time constraints to an extent. There is no cold calling but it is door to door business sales. They explain from the get go that this position is sales, and not everyone is meant to be a salesman. In my first week solo I made something along the lines of 700$, mind you, this is my first sales job. I have not been misled at all up to this point. Regardless of the long hours and times spent busting my ass, I love my job. It's been one of my most enjoyable positions thus far . For the self motivated, driven individual, this position could hold a ton of potential, but be warned, this isn't a job for someone who is interested in riding a desk.

  35. I was called by Noel Nutchinson at this same Atlanta Veritas office and told that my resume had been reviewed and that Brandon, the hiring manager, would like to have an interview with me. I hadn't applied for this company, and I would not have ever applied for the Account Manager position Noel told me about. I Googled the company and browsed their website which brought up very little information and no hard facts about how the employees work with the company's clients. Dissatisfied with the lack of information, I Googled further and found this site.

    My interview was scheduled for tomorrow. I will call before I make the hour drive to try and find out for sure about what the position is about. When I was talking with Noel (who was super friendly), she asked, "You applied for this position, right?"
    I said, "No, I'm interested in administration, actually."
    "Oh, well Brandon (the hiring manager) still wants to talk with you."

    I'll come back and let you know how it goes! I'm also, like everyone else, very thankful for this site. I hate getting reeled into interviews for sales that last over an hour. This would have been the third time I didn't see it coming. Thank goodness I'm finally learning.

    1. It's really long, but this is the email (in addition to the phone call) I received asking me to an interview:

      Good Morning Lindsay,

      Thank you for applying with our company through Career Builder!

      My name is Dani Mesen, and I am the HR Manager here at Veritas, Inc. Our Hiring Managers have reviewed your resume and would like to schedule an initial in person one-on-one interview to discuss your background and qualifications.

      You submitted your resume for the Management Trainee position. This position involves marketing, customer service and client acquisitions in the Atlanta area and leads to management for the right candidate. In the bigger picture, we plan to develop a qualified individual into a management position, where they can oversee day to day operations within the office.

      We provide one-on-one training and coaching in the areas of product sales, marketing and team leadership. The ideal candidate will have a positive attitude, a great work ethic, a student mentality, and strong people skills.

      The skills above certainly help your chances of getting an interview, but doesn't necessarily "make or break" that decision. We also factor in past education, experience, and overall professionalism of a candidate.

      Since we represent the two telecom companies in Atlanta (Comcast & AT&T), we are very selective in our interview process. Therefore, it makes sense for us to find a candidate that can represent AT&T or Comcast to the highest level of professionalism and integrity.

      To ensure an opportunity with us, please contact us today at Dani.Mesen@veritasatlanta.com or (404)869-0015 as soon as possible with the time frame that best fits your schedule. Our office hours are: Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST. We are conducting interviews this week.
      Have a great day and we look forward to speaking with you soon!


      Best regards,

    2. Well, I called the company, and it was a rather uneventful conversation. I asked clarifying questions about the position they contacted me about, the girl mentioned it being a position with opportunity for growth, but that it starts out lower, and I told her I was actually looking for positions in X field, and please I'd like to cancel my interview. No big.

  37. Hey everyone, this is Dani Mesen.
    The evil human resource manager we keep bashing on this website. I am a current employee at Veritas Inc.

    Throughout the time I have been employed here, I've been nothing but honest to people both over the phone and in person. I make sure to go out of my way in order to try and get all questions answered.

    As opposed to being "so angry" and judgmental about not getting a second round interview/call/a desk job where you get paid while you spend 5hrs on facebook and the other 3hrs doing mediocre work/a job where you again perform however you want and don't give a damn, likewise where your managers do not care for you to get promoted at any point in time. If you like to have managers who step all over you and could care less about your performance at work, be my guest. I would recommend not believing everything people say and create your own opinion as opposed to following others'. Have a mind of your own.

    You read it on here, so it's true? Shows how gullible people really are. Just like that State Farm commercial...haha. If you have questions about the position and are "so desperately trying to find a job" show up for your interview and give it a chance. If you tells us a salary range that you are looking for we can go from there and see if it is a good match. But who does that anyway? You need a job, period. Be smart about how you approach job opportunities.

    Us, recruiters, do you a favor by giving you a call after reviewing your qualifications when you are job seeking. It is a waste of time to schedule people for interviews who are first of all naive enough to believe people who never even made it to their interview in the first place, or people who obviously simply don't care to work hard and earn their place.

    This business is clearly not for everyone. It is highly competitive and there is a reason we have been on the market for over 15 years and have developed plenty of offices in every state. We must be doing something right.

    But is what it is. Here at some pointers:

    If you have any questions in regards of a specific position here at Veritas Inc. Contact a Human Resource Manager (someone who actually knows what they're talking about) to get your questions answered.

    Save major, more professional questions to the time when you are "offered" the position and avoid bandwagoning; you will never know how it could have turned out if you just follow the trend of people who are probably still job seeking as you are reading this.

    You can either take or leave my advice. We have fun in this office, it is a nice fresh of air to interact with people who enjoy their jobs and are ready to get down to business. People are happy and motivated to work here. If you lack "self-motivation," simply do not apply for positions here or anywhere in the first place. Self-motivation plays a huge part in the corporate business as well as in every other job. Employers look for quality employees, not those who will leave in a matter of a month because the job is challenging.

    However, those who enjoy growth, opportunity, and challenge are welcomed to apply! We enjoy people with great personalities and attitudes who can picture themselves growing within a company and advancing based on performance and work ethic.

    Best of luck in your job seeking and may the odds be ever in your favor!

    Sincerely,
    Dani Mesen
    Evil Human Resource Manager

    1. The insulting tone of this post is really leaving an impression on me. This is the first time, i have seen a LEGITIMATE (as you claim) company respond to a random blog post. This post only cemented what other people have already said about this company. Also, HR managers are not door to door sales people, have a steady salary, and have benefits.

      "Us, recruiters, do you a favor by giving you a call" Well, I just thought it was HR's JOB to call qualified candidates.

      "If you lack "self-motivation," simply do not apply for positions here or anywhere in the first place." This must be a preview of the company's sales "training."

      At any job I have worked, HR people are usually the most friendly and most helpful. Judging by this response, I definitely do not want to meet the other employees like the sales managers or supervisors.

    2. I can honestly say that I was contacted by this company and was told the position was a 'Management trainee' position which I knew I hadn't applied for. There is no way I'm desperate enough for a job that I will simply settle for sales if I know that is not a position I would prosper in. When I asked about the position prior to scheduling the interview I received vague information just to get me to come in. I believe the way you recruit for employees is why this blog was created because instead of stating the position as 'Sales agent' you rename it to sound more appealing then people waste there time and gas to drive all the way there only to find that its a sales position that could have been avoided. Especially when the sales position is DOOR-TO-DOOR, walking around in the outside conditions for long hours and and no benefits. I'm sorry but I don't need to come into the office for a face-to-face interview to know I don't want to do that! Who does? No one in their right mind. I'd rather Google the company like many of us have and find out what the recruiters don't want to tell us over the phone when they call.

    3. Wow, that rant by Dani Mesen proved that this company is shiesty. The utter gall to think that doing YOUR job as HR is a favor to applicants. Don't get upset that people are calling you all out for the scam that you are. Hell, a few people in the comments were contacted by YOU all. Even if I wanted to take the chance and come to my own conclusion, that comment killed it.

    4. Wow so glad I found this blog I was same thing found my resume careerbuilder and blah blah blah same deal I live an hr away from Atlanta and had an interview tomorrow will be cancelling definitely not up for door to door sales thx everyone!

    5. Opportunity? Veritas? HA! I'd rather work at MCDONALDS and work my way up to manager there! Not much is more demeaning than doing cold-calling door-to-door sales! Even *ding fries are done*! Dani, this wouldn't be a scam if you guys were at least up front with it! I interviewed last year, was lured in by the "management trainee" job title. How does walking door to door and trying to force businesses to buy things constitute management? Anger management maybe? From coping with getting told to f*** off a dozen times a day? I know I haven't worked hard at my previous jobs, gone to college, worked hard for a degree, for 100% commission door-to-door bs! 99% of retail and fast food jobs are better!

  38. I'm glad that I read this blog. I was almost excited about my interview tomorrow, but no thanks. Not only did I not apply to this position, but it's not a career option for me. I was told I would manage the customer service department for AT&T. I was called and after reading all these messages I re-listened to my voice mail to see what company called me and surely it was Veritas. My first thought was yeah it may have not been what I initially wanted, but it felt like a foot in the door to get to the design department at AT&T, when it was stated as that type of job, but door to door and sales is a negative for me. I don't have time for that, I have loans and a family. As far as that so called HR message to others, that's very unprofessional and let's me know I don't want to be represented by a company with such a negative vibe. Everyone is entitled to their opinion,and so called trying to belittle people for their opinions of this job is just tacky. People obviously know what they want in a career, and it doesn't make them less because they're not feeling what your company has to offer. I know my potential and I choose not to waste my time or Veritas. Thanks, and I won't be interviewing tomorrow. Good luck Veritas, and for anyone who reads this, I hope you read up before you go in. It might be for you, it might not, either way at least you know what's coming!

  39. You guys are morons. Cydcor is legit. It's commission, but commission can be lucrative. It's not a scam that we have wealth disparity in this country. It's a poor man's mindset that causes disparity.

    1. Maybe not full-on scam, but definitely misleading. If this company wasn't misleading, this page full of disparaging comments wouldn't exist. Crappy yet legit jobs don't even have these kinds of pages, only companies like the one you work for do. I hope you're getting paid well to hunt down bad reviews and type out rebuttals.

  40. Got a phone call on saturday, was trying to get me interviewed on monday, Researched the company, looks nothing would cross my major field. get some question marks in my head and called them asked some question about why my field can server them in marketing, found out that going to the interview is not a good idea and turn off the interview

  41. I guess I should play devil's advocate here. My name is Darrin and I worked for "Veritas" for about 6 months or so. Most of the comments on here are hilarious in my opinion. I loved working for the company and working with all of the people there. It is a 100% commission job until the asst.Management stage. There are no typical benefits such as dental, vision, etc. I averaged about $600 per wk and saw checks over $1000. At the end of the day this job is what you make it. I jad no previous sales experience and they trained me from start to finish and didn't just throw me to the wolves. I'm not going to call anyone an idiot on here but it really isn't smart to take advice from people who never even started with the company. It is not a scam in any shape or form and was actually one of the best work environments I've worked for. I've personally seen people get promoted into the management positions so it can be done. This job isn't for everyone but is an amazing opportunity for some. Although I do not currently work there, the skills I took from there helped me in my current position and I'm strongly considering starting at another cydcor office now that I'm in California. btw give Dani a break, she was just doing her job seeing how most recruiters follow a script and that post about Malachi is hilarious, he is kinda corny but in a good way. He trained me and I'm glad he did.

  42. I thought it was odd when I told the HR lady that I was currently in an Internship and she said that is fine, we can bring you on at any time. This blog has opened my mind. On the email they sent it said nothing about it being a sales position. I have been captured by these kinds of people before. I ended up wasting a day at their second interview. I do not appreciate being lured in with false hope.

  43. Wow, I think there is major confusion about what the job is and what the job hunter expects it to be. I have an interview next week and will post an unbiased opinion. From reading every single review it just sounds like a regular sales job, door to door with no benefits. Definitely not a job for the faint of heart or those needing a steady paycheck. I would suggest to the company to makeover their 'brand' at this point & be completely upfront on their website that their positions are 100% commissioned base at the lower levels but once again it can be a lucrative business for a good sales person. When I read about the job they did make it appear as if they did the advertisement for at&t n comcast but maybe I was inferring what I wanted them to be. Will post back...

    1. There is a difference in being mislead and being confused. You don't mislead people and tell those same people that they were confused. Nowhere in any of their ads do they say that they're a door-to-door salespeople, which is what they are. Nowhere in the ad does it say that they're 100% commissioned based. I'm sorry, I'm tired of business like this. They're literally feeding on people's desperation for work.

  44. Thank you for the blog. I was contacted Friday, once by email in the a.m and I didn't respond because I knew I hadn't applied to them. Then later that day I received a phone call from the HR wanting to schedule an interview. I took down the information but in all actuality that's a 40min drive to a company I know nothing about that I didn't apply to. So I'm super glad I decided to google them because I am NOT trying to be ANYBODY'S manager (I have a B.A in Psychology, I'd take the HR's job if anything) and I'm DEFINITELY not into sales. Declining their invitation ASAP.

  45. The atmosphere in the office is fun, since the employees are encouraged to be high energy and everyone is in the same age group. Unfortunately it is a commission based job with little to no job security. The company holds a high turnover rate for a reason. You will be required to work 6 days a week for at least 12 hours a day with no off time or vacation. Also with the commission pay there is no base, which often yields small pay checks weekly, well under minimum wage. Once you drive to your designated area, which can vary from 10 mins away to an hour + away, most of your pay is gone due to just maintaining gas to keep you mobile. Every once and a while they may offer a gas card bonus but other then that you will end up coming out of pocket at least $100+ in gas alone to get you to the office, your area, back to the office, and then home. If you are looking for benefits then this opportunity isn't for you. If you are looking for a decent living then this opportunity isn't for you. If you are looking for job security then this opportunity definitely isn't for you, since they interview 100+ people a week. This means that to them you are easily replaceable, even though out of that 100 people maybe .1% of them will last 3 months. Also if you are above the age range of 20-28 they probably won't offer you the job, and the same goes for people who already have families. In conclusion if you receive a notice for there interest in you for their "Management in Training Program" i would strongly suggest you ignore and continue looking for better.

  47. No, it's a scam. I had a call today telling me that I would be manager over call center for AT&T. I was excited and it was going to be an hour ride for me to get there but was going to go anyways. After reading this, I think they can sit there and wait on me. What liars they are to try and get you in. I too apply for so many jobs that I could not say that I did not apply for this one but now I can. Seems the online job hunting is covered with spammers just waiting on you and I think our resumes are just getting lost in the stack. I'm going to head out into reality and see if I can get a job one on one. No more of this B.S. for me! Thanks to all of you for not wasting my time going up there!
