    A lot of companies do training in other countries, iirc some american investment banks ship new grads to New York for 6-10 weeks

    Sounds fishy. If you end up getting killed, don't say we didn't warn you. Don't go : <

    Yeah but thats a well known company. Theres hardly anything about this company on the internet apart from a facebook page. You need to do thorough research and know who you are working for.

    i still wouldnt trust it. do some thorough research on the company.
    in google put the company name followed by scam and see if anything comes up
    Ok so just got back from the training in milan and I can safely say it wasn't a scam. Don't think it could have been any more professional tbh.

    All I can say is got to assess the situation from every angle possible, if all seems good then go for it with an open mind

    Hey! I know this is a few months old, but just wondering if you took the job? If so, how is it? They are advertising on Indeed in my area so I am quite intrigued. Thanks

    Please believe me when I say this, which is valid for most things in life:

    If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

    I've just seen that you've posted again, so how is it. You say 'it doesn't pay straight away' - what does that mean? Have you actually received any money yet?

    Yeah so the first 6 weeks you get paid £750 as your sort of shadowing someone who's been doing it for a while. After you start going out by yourself then you have the chance to sell.

    Seems just like what I was doing with Unilever last year and got paid greatly for it. I always thought the unilever job was too good to be true but it wa s legit, hours were great, paid like 2.5k+ a month.

    All i have to say is assess any situation you go into, look online for reviews, look for news articles about the company and look at other factors before deciding.
