    Researching a potential employer

    How would you find out info on a company you may be interested in working for besides researching a company online and requesting information from the BBB? During my research I found this site and read some very negative things about a company I handed my resume too. I'm not sure if anyone is aware of this site. Has anyone any thoughts or have you heard of this website before?

    My inner voice kept telling me to research a particular company before going to an interview. Which I normally do anyways. So I did. I have researched companies but this time my bells and whistles are going off. That's why I continued to research them. The complaintants call it a pyramid scheme. It is one of the companies listed in the following reports.

    ripoffreport.com (Consumers for consumers)
    http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/default1942.htm

    I had gone to a job fair and only briefly talked with the representative. I just thought well the house is full and many others were standing around and that's why I was briefly spoken too. I handed him my resume and received a call today about scheduling an interview. In which I did. I then began to research the company. Something doesn't feel right.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    I believe in going with your "gut" feeling it has served me well, if it sounds to good it probably is.
    Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things!
