Beware of the Intuitive Group Inc! This company is a rebrand of a very old pyramid scheme/MLM and is a part of the infamous Cor Concepts.

This marketing affiliate is part of CYDCOR, which has marketing offices all over the U.S.Everyone who applies to them gets accepted. It is based on a pyramid scheme, where the Manager and the Owner's make all the money.

You market door to door for some phone company or sell office cupplies, yes, soliciting door to door from one business to the other, get no salary, or driving expense, or insurance or any benefits what so ever. This job is striclty based on commission, and you work 9 hour days. NO PAY! and strictly commission. You are literally taught to lie and sell the product, any way possible, to make your day's pay.

I am glad articles like this are posted and people take the time to write them. I found the job on craigslist and within the hour they called and scheduled a meeting for the same day. I didn't even need to bother going to realize it was a scam, even though they have an office and website (poor one) it is a worthless company and job.

I AGREE. THEY JUST EMAILED ME AS WELL, AND NOW I KNOW I DO NOT EVEN NEED TO BOTHER AND RETURN THE CALL. THE WEBSITE IS A JOKE!!

I too am glad that these website exist. I've grown wary of businesses with names like "The Intuitive Group" - the name even sounds sketchy to me. I scheduled an interivew with them this Monday...will be canceling it. SO UNFORTUNATE these places exist and just prey on innocent and naive recent grads.

Don't waste your time. They do a ton of interviews every day and this hipster D-bag interviews you, tells you he's giving you one of 2 spots he has available even though he has 6 or 7 interviews left for the day. The quality of people he has working for him is so pitiful; they're clearly not too bright considering they agreed to work for this ridiculous cookie-cutter pyramid scheme company. For my "training day" we went door to door pissing off local businesses, asking them if they needed office supplies. No base, all commission....shocker.

NEVER WORK FOR THIS COMPANY, I DID AND IT WAS THE WORST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE!!! it is strictly commission, in which you have the opportunity to make money 5-6 hours per day but you are required to work 10-12 hours per day.. and this is not coming from someone who sucked at the job, this is someone who was in the top ranking of the leader multiple times!!

THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!!!! I also found the job on Craigslist & got an interview...haha now I know why!

I also wanted to offer up Metro Events Inc...they have similar pyramid schemes with commission-based pay, no drive time compensation and required to work after hours and not get paid!
