Well after the start date came and went a week and I got another email with someone new.
"Hello, [DELETED NAME]
Hope you're having a good day!
We're back on track with the regular working schedule, and I truly appreciate your patience, I know you're eager to start and so are we!
As you already know, my name is Terry Watts, I am your supervisor and trainer for the probation period with Promena. I'm hear to cover you
when needed and to help you develop the necessary set of skills to be successful within the company and your career here. FYI, there is lots
of room for growth within the company and your probation period will give you a kickstart towards your further development with the company.
Now, I would like to thank you for submitting your paperwork, I am asusming you've discussed all the work-related issues with the HR but let
me know if there is anything you are still not clear about 'technically' - I'll see if I can be of any help.
I would like to point out the basics once again:
- your schedule is flexible within the 8am-8pm time frame, and this is your local time, be it EST, PST etc.
- your very first payment is a 160 or 80 paid hours and is due closer to the end of the probation period HOWEVER
- once you move from theory to practice you'll be able to earn commission instantly. Your commission can be as high as $300 every 3-4 days,
so be sure to dedicate yourself to our 'practical' working routine.
- you are expected to work from a spot of your preference, home office for instance; you're expected to communicate with me on daily
- it is an absolute requirement that you notify me of any vacations, sick leaves etc as ahead of time as possible so that I do not end up with
a busy work schedule for you in vain.
Most of my agents will inquire about taxes - your taxation paperwork will be mailed to you along with the direct deposit forms and other company
paperwork closer to the end of the probation period, because this is when the HR department wants to get you enrolled into automatic payroll, process
your web panel access information etc.
As a part of your commission-earning routine you will be dealing with billing procedures, and will therefore require an account of your choice to use
during the probation period. Please note that we are not requesting any sensitive information, but since you will be dealing with customer invoices and payments
it is required that you provide a Paypal or a bank account of your choice. If you do not have one, we will reimburse up to $75 for establishing a new account.
Please get back to me with:
1. Best date/time to start our training.
2. Best contact number and time as I will be calling to introduce myself personally.
3. Confirmation of your understanding of the above written.
Supervising Sales Manager
I have been in contact with them where I asked about the money transfer duty listed. Here is the reply.
You will have a very flexible schedule that you can shape around and adjust yourself, however if you ask about my preference, I would say spend morning hours working with us, and make it at least 3 hours per day, although the 1pm you're mentioning here will work as well. This is enough time to take care of a task or work on the training, and it also leaves you room if more hours are needed for the specific task.
Promena as your employer is doing your taxes and you get your W-2 with the taxes deducted.
As for 'money transfer' - if you are familiar with the billing clerk basic duties, this is what you would be doing as a part of your job. You're going to invoice the clients, work with delinquent payments, process advance payments, do payouts to order executors etc."
I then asked something my aunt suggested about checking their paypal account, so I asked for their email they side stepped the question. They also side stepped my questions about their company "Is there a physical location for the US branch of Promena in the US or will there be? Or would I be employed from the Turkish branch, and in which case how would I go about doing my taxes?"
If you are not aware of what Paypal is, you will learn about it more during one of our training sessions. Do you have a bank account you'll be able to use during work?"
I then asked why I need a bank account for work, and I haven't gotten any replies back since 8 days ago.
I have just sent an email stating I will not be using any of my accounts for any work transactions and I will not be accepting money that is not my paycheck.
So has anyone been able to dig up if they are a scam or not? Or had an experience with them aside from the starting post?
