I applied to an advertisement on Indeed.com for a "Front Desk" position. In the description the job claimed to be a full-time position with a payrate of $16-$22 & complete benefits package available once the 90 day probation period was over. A couple of days after applying I recieved a phone call from a woman named Vainicke. She said she was calling on behave of Trinity Advancement group and wanted to know if I was still interested in the Front desk position I applied for. Then she asked how much customer service experience did I have. Once the preliminary questions were out the way they set an appointment with me to come down for the in person interview. She said to be sure to bring my resume, two forms of ID, and that I would have to pay the minimum deposit of $279 to cover uniform. On the phone I thouggt she said I could pay by check or money order. When I went to the interview it was located at 48 Wall Street, on the 5th floor of an office building. The building itself was very professional. You had to show ID at the front desk receptionist before she presses the button to buzz you through the turnstiles for guest. People who work in the building have cards, so you as a visitor feel like if you work there you have authorization. But I digress.Once I went up to the 5th floor I checked in with two other ladies at another front desk by stating I had an appointment with Vainicke. They pointed me to the waiting area through some glass doors. I waited and then a gentleman came up to me. He introduced himself as Mr Tyrone Hayes and that he would be the one handling my interview. After following him off to one of the offices I sat down at a guest chair next to his desk. There were two other females in the office but they were working at another desk and they didn’t say much to me other than hello. Mr. Hayes took my resume, asked about mynprevious experience, and proceeded to explain to me that even though the position I’m applying for was Front desk, all their employees must take various security and fire safety courses in order to work in the positions they have contracted with various commercial, residential, and hotels. They even named some hotels by name like the Marriott. They explained that employees are either Level 1 or Level 2. Level 1 must take the 8 hour and 16 hour security courses. While level 2 must take the 8hour, 16hour, oshea license, and a fire safety course. Of course there is a pay rate difference in the levels. Level 1 make 16-18, while level 2 make 18-22.50 an hour. And the money you have to pay for all the security courses you can supposedly pay while you work, you just have to be sure to complete all the courses before the end of the 90 day probation period. However, you must still pay the $279 deposit to cover registration and the fire guard certification. When I pulled out my checkbook, he informed me they didn’t accept checks. I must’ve been mistaken what I heard over the phone. The deposit must be paid in cash or money order. He suggested that I could go to the bank across the street while he kept my ID to run a background check.When I returned with the deposit in cash Mr.Hayes gave me a registration form to fill out, and even wrote me a receipt for my cash deposit. Then he told me to come back on Friday at 1pm to report for my first day of training. The company is described on the paperwork as a training referral / company. They are emphatic that they are not a job placement company not are they a training school. On the form it says that they do not guarantee employment.So I left believing everything was on the up and up and had no inclination to the contrary until I returned Friday for my first day of training. When I tried to gain entry to the building with the 1st floor receptionist to get buzzed through she informed me that the company that was previously on the 5th floor was no longer there. That Trinity Advancement group had only rented the office space at 48 Wall Street and the owner of the office space didn’t know when exactly they left. That apparently they’d cleared out all their stuff over night. And they weren’t responsible for anything that trinity advancement group did while renting the space. According to the receptionist, people had been coming in all week since Tuesday reporting for training for various positions, only to find that the company had moved. Each person had lost money, at the very least the $279 & in some cases more as they may have opted to pay more of the fees up front for the other security courses. I have tried the two numbers I had, and I can’t reach anyone. No one picks up and the mailbox is full. Mind you, I had no reason to call these numbers after my interview and had no inclination it was scam until I reported for training only to find they had cleared out like thieves in the night with my money as well as deposit from several others. And to make matters worse their job advertisements are still up and active today on the job sites. So this is why I wish to report them in hopes of sparing others and preventing them from scaming others out of their funds with promises of employment and great payrates.
