The purpose of this blog is to inform job seekers of deceptive job advertisements, deceptive company websites, and deceptive company practices so they do not waste time and money (transportation costs) going to interviews for door-to-door commission only (or minimum wage plus commission) jobs which were not entirely disclosed on the job ads or during the job interviews.

Fortune Inc (San Diego, CA)
Fortune Inc (8755 Aero Dr Ste 212, San Diego, 858-874-6460) is a mysterious company. Their website does not tell you what city they are located in, what do you do if you work for them, or even their phone number. Their facebook page tells you San Diego and their phone number. Their facebook page has pictures of real people, their company website does not.
Beware of attractive, but possibly deceptive job ads which offer entry-level training in management, marketing, and sales especially if the ads state no experience required. If you decide to interview with such a company, ask many questions before accepting employment. Will you be paid minimum wage or commission? Are there company benefits?
I wonder how much is the pay for Fortune's regional managers? Does Fortune pay for the business travel? How can you call them if they do not even have a phone number on their website?
