I have been offered a job with deVere Group in the UAE.I have to soon go for training in Malta then go to to the a country I can choose.

It seems a great company but there is a lot of negativity on these forums. I dont have a lot of money and would be leaving a job and my family to go.

The income projections seem fantastic and I liked Mr Nigel Green when I met him in London earlier this year.Seems a great opportunity so would like to hear from current or ex-employees as to the real situation.

Had an Experience with Devere Group?

Hey guys, I'm glad to have come across this thread.I too have been offered employment with deVere.

I'm from the UK but moved to the UAE, where I'm seeking work. The recruiter is quite persistent. I have been busy with other interviews and haven't had time to accept the offer. I think I'm going to decline after reading your comments.

Sounds awful. I'd like to mention that they offered me a salary of 8000dhs which is around £1400 a month plus commission, bur reading some of the comments suggest otherwise.

I don't want to risk working on a commission only salary,therefore I'll continue my search for work.:)

To want to expose bad practice: send the link of this site and threads to everyone you know and ask them to keep sending forward...and just ask people to read and think twice before taking advise from anyone company listed in this site. Buy list of emails in the net, there are reasonably cheap and may help you to reach an incredible number of people in one hit.

Been contacted by then having somehow got my CV of Reid and told me the lowest earning guy out of everyone who lasted a year was 80k, my CV was so good that they simply had to chase me, Having read up on them and having been promised the world working with Chris Niarchos's COBRA before who Im sure some of you will be familiar with, think I might give Mr Greens seminar the old body swerve!!

Ask yourself, isn´t it strange for a company to hold weekly recruitment programme...EVERY WEEK!!!What does it say to you?HIGH LABOUR TURN OVER!!

What kind of message does it send to you?IF YOU WANT TO PAY FOR THE TELEPHONE BILL, MAIL (FEDEX) AND OTHER THINGS...AND STILL GET THE LOWEST COMMISSION IN THE MARKET...BE MY GUEST AND DESTROY YOUR PROFESSIONAL CAREER AS I DID THE DAY I ACCEPT THE JOB AND GOT MY NAME ASSOCIATED WITH IT IN MARKET...NOW I AM OUT AND HAVE TO REBUILD MY IMAGE WHICH I WORKED SO HARD TO ESTABLISH...NIGEL GREEN - RACIST WHO LIKES TO LABEL BRAZILIANS AS A BUNCH OF LAZY PEOPLE.

i do not believe that devere are / were ever regulated to operate in Brasil. if this is the case they should you not question your own motives in taking the job in the first place?

I have been contacted them and my CV was so good that I have been fast tracked to a seminar this Friday in Heathrow where Mr Nigel green will make a speech as he never attends seminars.So I mucky to be meeting him.

He sent me a personal mail thanking me for making a step closer to becoming a consultant. Very nice for a billionaire to mail me. I think I will give it a miss as I am an aggressive f@@k and would probably end up hitting someone.

Thanks for the feedback and comments.Too long in the tooth.

good point by reality check.working in McD is not that bad and there are no real surprises.

And its not commission only.. you get paid irrespective of how many burgers flipped.

Stevieman - get a barge pole and keep it between you and Devere.Unless of course you are a cold blooded type who does not mind robbing people of their savings - by the sounds of it you will probably get robbed yourself.

John.Your'e missing one thing in your argument.

The people who moan about working at Mcdonalds aren't lied to about the job, its prospects and earnings.

They're not commission only and they get paid when they expect to get paid.

This is opposite to people who moan about devere, who are lied to on a daily basis, don't to get paid for the sales they make and pay thousands to set themselves up abroad based on a complete pack of lies about the job.

Been there - done it - got the devere T shirt.The only people who make money at devere are the lowest of the low with no respect for other peoples wealth or savings, About as far from an IFA as one can get.
