If you have ever applied for any of the companies listed above in the Tigard, OR area and were contacted regarding an interview session, I strongly advise you to turn around and walk away if you haven’t already. The companies Olympus Advertising, The Sharp Firm, DMA Portland, and Iconic Solutions are all office entities of Smart Circle International, a multi-level marketing (MLM) company that builds it’s business on franchising hundreds of offices around the US at no direct cost. These offices interview 50-100 applicants a day in desperate search of a job and recruit them to go out into the public and sell certain products and services in retail outlets or door-to-door. The various products and services that these offices are contracted to sell include Home Depot Kitchen Cabinet Refacing consultations, Direct TV installation, Century Link installation, Pierogies, Body Comfort Packs, and many more failing products that take advantage of SC’s “zero cost marketing” scheme. They claim they primarily work with client acquisition. However, with its MLM scheme they elude from the fact that the business model is doomed to fail eventually until some office owners go out of business or pack up shop and move to another city or office. Most go with the second option. The jobs that they offer are real. However the security, job description, and payscale they initially pitch are very misleading and false in many respects. For example, Olympus Advertising on their website have one continuous job opening available, customer service representative. After an initial interview, candidates will be asked to drive out to various retail outlets that they set up shop in and advertise (but ultimately sell) Direct TV home service installation. You will be greeted by a shady looking representative who doesn’t really explain the nature of the job itself but rather the “”money potential”” that is often misrepresented. They claim that most reps if successful may make $50,000 to $75,000 annually. However, the reality is that most representatives see days without sales and live off of the “”guaranteed minimum wage”” (you make either commission or minimum wage for hours worked – which ever is greater). And btw, your actual job consists of walking around aimlessly in stores such as Frys, Best Buy, and Fred Meyer to solicit customers’ business. After training for one week (sometimes less) and you haven’t made at least two sales you will be let go and they move onto the next applicant. Don’t believe the hype that Olympus Advertising puts out their about their “”amazing opportunity.”” Because that’s all it really is, hype. Even the office owner struggles to pay his bills off this job.
