Hi all, I was considering marketing as a back up as the TV and film industry is so hard to get into. After applying for a few marketing assistant jobs Team Jump Entrepreneurs came back to me and I had an interview. After an extensive google search I found this Reddit thread; "https://www.reddit.com/r/canterbury/comments/ekzi8h/there_is_currently_a_fake_company_conducting_scam/" and ditched the interview. So since then a company called Wave Global who look similar have approached me and are promising me the world with an internal promotion program. I was wondering if anyone has information on them? They claim there the biggest direct marketing company in the US with offices all over the globe.
Getting a weird kick out of taking these company for a ride, feel like I'm Phoebe from Friends like "Yeah but they don't know I know.



These are the companies i have found so far to be recruiting graduates which are very sketchy:



- Team Jump Entrepreneurs

- AJG direct

- Bone and Marrow Co

- Alpha Gamma Solutions



If anyone has further information on these companies I really am interested if they are a MLM scams or legit and unlucky to be associated with some of these. I also think we need a new term instead of MLM scam because they do slightly differ lmfao any suggestions? I like From the Employment Line to ringing doorbells all the time. Bit long tho.

Hi Please avoid Team Jump Entrepreneurs. These is a pyramid scheme who prey on young naive people and brain wash them, it’s a door to door sales job attempting to get customers to switch there broadband. It’s a terrible company that needs to be shut down, they brain washes people to work 6 days a week 12 hours a day and it’s commission based only!

Good luck on your job search!

Hi I am from the UK, and I have applied for WAVE Global before, and I was 'lucky' enough that I was chosen for one of their interviews.

Right way you can understand from the conversation that there's nothing about marketing it's all about sales, calling people, the amount of people you call and make them change their broadband or anything you win more money. When I applied they used the name "Marketing Assistant" but now they changed, and it is "Event Marketing Assistant"; the time I had my interview wasn't only me, two more girls were in the Zoom call also to try to get the job and I was with a girl that had a marketing job already, so I tried to analyse her facial expressions (because I wasn't liking it, and I wanted to see if the other girls were finding the interview strange as well).

One of the things that really called my attention is when the marketing girl that was on the call said that the salary was not really what she was looking for, she was expecting more (because she had experience already) the answer was "Oh yes it is a bit small, but you can always apply for a Universal Credit to help you with your bills". At that moment all the alarms in my head where like NO this is bad. And about the salary they always talk that if you worked 'hard' and had many clients your salary would increase (pyramid scheme).

This is just the two main things that I can remember, but I am sure that was more stuff. I hope that people could talk more about it, but there's very little information online, most reviews are great but really similar to each other.

To be allowed to advertised on Indeed and LinkedIn after being reported proper triggers me. Using the high unemployment rate to there gain. Sickening.
