Is Pro Marketing Group/Universal Marketing Solutions a scam?

I went on an interview at this marketing firm that seemed really fishy, first of all it was in a tiny suit in a building on a side street by penn station, secondly nobody really seemed to know about headquarters when I asked. The weird thing about the interview was that the guy seemed to not like that I was asking questions. He didn’t ask me if I had any questions and he sounded like he had memorized what he was saying. The reception woman seemed really nice though and made me want to work there :)

anyway, they want me to come in for a full business day for a second interview and don’t wanna waste time cuz that seems weird and this doesn’t seem legit.

here’s their website, let me know if you’ve heard of them:

even the site seems weird.

They are a scam. They hire 100% of all people who apply. You will be given a job without a salary and will never be paid any money. You have to sell complete sets of windows to homeowners. Or you will be selling $3,000 water-purifiers to homeowners. You go door-to-door trying to set up appointments for their more-experienced salespeople. You only get paid if someone buys a $7,000 “package” of dual-pane windows that they could buy from a contractor for $3,500.
