ok.. im uk through and through
i dont normally write threads about us, potraying a negative image
but something happened to me this week in the city...and i am completely baffled and kinda shell shocked
as im sure this is nothing serious i want to share WTF happened...so that some of you dont get caught up by some unscrupulous renegade.
right..i got an email...from a company.. in central london
they got my CV from god knows where....and were offering me a job
i personally ignore such emails....but these lot followed that up with a phone call...
i spoke to a lady....she said we like your CV, and want you to join a growing division..
...ok i thought...i barked back at her..im only free between 12 and 2.....she said ok....we agreed on the day
and i turned up.
firstly...i think i can mention the train station....it was Temple...the area had freaky monks statues...boy was i freaked lol...
went into a shared office building...advised to wait in a communal area....with tables and chairs ...and odd people hanging around
as i sat...people in suits would come and pluck members of the waiting crowd
i was left till last....a man in a suit took me to a room
we have a great opportunity ...etc
you can only join the division if you pass this course
and then you are gauranteed a job (but thats not what the small print said)
then he asked me to sign something...obviously i read it..which made him uncomfortable
what i was signing annoyed me
it said that i was signing up for training....they help me with the first two modules...the remaining 16 modules i had to complete alone....
i asked for a break while i thought about it...looked online...and to be frank...it was impossible to finish the last few modules alone
i went back....he told me that i would have to pay for the training...and it costs a little over 5000 pounds
i said i cant get that money for training....he said i can borrow it
i said my credit is crap
he replied....dont worry...we know someone at the bank (i wont name bank)
i said...how come you can get 5 grand out in my name...and i cant??? and what on earth are you borrowing against...my birth certificate??
when i asked that question, the interview was over...and i havnt heard from them since
