How are you guys doing? I hope you are well.
Just a quick update on my situation, just went for my follow-up with my psychiatrist last week, my depression is getting worst, my anxiety disorder – there’s is no sign of improvement and my medication dosage needs to be increased.
Just to share, I went for one interview 2 weeks ago as a sales and marketing executive and travel opportunities was offered and the salary range was around the expected range I was looking at .
When I arrived at the office, I was greeted by a very ‘friendly’ HR executive. I filled up the form and I was surprised, the interviewer can interview 2 candidates at once, I brushed it off at first, thinking that since it was a sales post, sure there will be competition.
The first interview took about an hour.
Few days later, I was called up for the second interview, I was feeling very happy as maybe my journey to finding a real job was coming soon.
The whole interview took me 3 hours! And it turned out to be an MLM company…
And my basic pay will only be $450 and working hours start from 130pm to 11pm daily. You will only be paid for the donations you get from the public.
I was feeling very panicky and anxious then, as there are a lot of so-called sales executive staring at you and giving you a strange look.
And a trainer was even assigned to me and review the way I communicated. They were standing right outside the interview room waiting for you!
I felt so uncomfortable and I didn’t want to waste any of my time at the office, I asked politely to leave and I wasn’t allowed to.
I ignored their following calls to me and they even get their Country manager to call me personally on a Saturday at about 4pm. And they even wanted to fix a 3rd interview with me!
I was feeling so sad and disappointed, do we job seekers have to go through all these?
If it’s a MLM office, then why are only letting the candidates know during the 2nd interview?
By the way, I did queried them after the 1st interview o what kind of company is this and what are they dealing with?
They told me it was an advertising company. And it turns out to be a company soliciting for donations for those with cancer and old age home.
Though my savings are running low as I am jobless for about 4 months, I really didn’t want to do this. I don’t feel good.
My ex-company which terminated me wanted me back and even got my ex colleague to call me and arrange an appointment to see the Indian MD again, I am feeling very lost as they didn’t even pay me for my commissions and the last-pay cheque amount was not right.
I went to legal aid and I was granted an appointment with the legal executive, and I need to furnish my statements for the past 1 year from the banks.
I called up the bank and they told me they need about 7-9 working days to get it done and I need to go down in person. A $15 fee will be applicable.
I am feeling very tired and useless to the extend of just feel like ending my life. All I want is just a decent job to go by and have my depression, schizophrenia and anxiety disorder cured. That’s all I am asking for…
I am a Singaporean and I have applied close to 80 applications on jobstreet and yet I am only being called up by the MLM company.
I am really in a loss. I really need a job.
I don’t want to stay at home all day doing nothing – just only doing the household chores is not enough.
I really hope to have a long term employment, that’s all I ask for.
Thanks for reading my mail and thank you for letting me know at least I could turn to you guys when I really needed someone.
