Why are Smart Circle affiliates considered job scams? The job ads are deceptive. The ads say they are hiring for positions in sales, public relations, event marketing, customer service, and management, but they are really hiring sales people. Look at their various job ads on Craigslist, CareerBuilder and Monster. Some affiliates will disclose their company names, but many will only use the initials of their names or not disclose their names at all. Accel Marketing, Inc would always use AMI as their company name in their CareerBuilder ads.
Merritt's Craigslist ads state Gas Reimbursement under Compensation. Really?
This Smart Circle affiliate will pay you to drive to the Costco, Home Depot or Sam's Club?
If you decide to interview with Merritt, ask about the gas reimbursement.
Will you be paid minimum wage plus commission?
How many hours and how many days a week will you be required to work?
What will you really be doing if you are hired by Merritt?
