Had a great time at 312 Marketing. when I walked in for my first interview, music was playing, ESPN was on seemed like a pretty cool place to be. The great part was I got to talk to the president of the company, not many offices let you do that, usually its with some random Human Resources individual. I got invited back for a second round interview pretty quickly which seemed odd to me, so I did some research on the company, saw they were in direct sales and marketing. So I came back for the 2nd round interview, and we proceeded to go out and talk to people directly. After that they showed me the breakdown of everything, what I would be doing, the pay and everything involved. I learned that there was no cap on the commissions and I was like *** yeah, I can make as much money as I want. I got offered the position fairly quickly after the final interview and started. since then I've been promoted 3 times and I like what I do. I will say this, its definitely not for everybody. Direct sales is not the greatest thing in the world, but I will say it will teach you a lot more than any degree will. Its not everyone's cup of tea, it was mine, I have always been an entrepreneur and this gave me a better opportunity to achieve that. Pretty simple.

A scam of a job
After graduating college with a degree in marketing, I received an email from this company for an interview. I added it to my list of jobs I was looking at, and before I knew it, they called me for an interview the next day. When I arrived at the office, everything looked very professional. A lot of fresh out of college kids, like myself, wearing suits and looking satisfied and busy with their jobs. My first interview was very quick, and looking back, misleading. I was under the impression that we would be designing and implementing ad strategies for AT&T's new product in the Raleigh area, and eventually move up to run my own marketing/advertising office. About an hour after my first interview, I was told that the president was very impressed with me, and wanted me to come back the next day for a 7 hour long interview. He made it seem like I was going to be meeting "the team" and "potential clients" to see how this business is ran. Needless to say, I was excited at this opportunity. After all, I was 22, told that in a year or so I would be a manager of my own company and making 6 figures a year. AWESOME. For my second interview, another employee took me out to "the field." Still in our suits, we got into his car and left to meet potential clients. He stopped at the first gas station to change. I thought this was weird, but whatever. When he came out, he was wearing a blue at&t shirt. Weird, but whatever. We finally got to wear our clients were: in a new neighbhorhood. Yeah, this "oppurtunity of a lifetime" they were trying to sell to all their interviewees was a glorified door to door sales job. I thanked them for their time, and I left. After doing more research, I learned that this office is affliated with CYDCOR. CYDCOR is an infamous sales cult company that uses deception to keep a revolving door of door to door sales people. Most of their offices close within a year. Don't waste your time if these people call or email you for an interview. Some other reviews I read about 312 say that they lie about your pay. Even though it's 100 percent commission based, they say you usually make 300-600 a week. If that's the case, then why is there a revolving door of employees?
