Yes it was Friday 13th, I should have known!
Andy Chaulkin (ex army) aren't they all, headed up the recruitment day at the Hilton on Friday, as I expected it was a blatant shiny happy, pick where you want to work in the world b****** two hours. When I asked him what his conversion rate was from candidate through to employee he couldnt give me a definitive answer, asked him about marketing budget and where the "data" for leads would come from, again no definitive answer, nor were my questions about the CISI "licence" that we would need to sell the products! unfortunately most of the other "participants" were too rabbit in the headlights at the idea of the "glamorous" life that they could lead with DeVere as was evidenced by the questions that they were asking, as if they were already successfully employed and living the "life" I have worked abroad before in Marbella and Laos and was expecting something new from this outfit but I dont think I am wrong, they are just another wolf in shiny sheeps clothing. There were no recommendations other than from Generalli and Friends Provident, no references from Deutschebank or JP Morgan who have allegedly come up with a unique Quorups product bespoke for DeVere. We were also given a very detailed account of the Christmas Party at the Grosvenor House in Park Lane and how they planned this year to spend Â£1m on their employees, almost trying to distract those of us who were there to find out the truth!
I am almost half interested in going along for the next "interview" stage to gather as much inside information as I can about their exploits and expose them for the scam mongering rats that I believe that they are ?
Anyone else with anything else to add or advice would be MUCH appreciated!
