They require verification of high earnings, probably because they look for someone who would sell their integrity for a buck. Appointments are set under the premise of providing "programs" offered by the US Conference of Mayors, nothing more than a ruse to pitch American Management's consulting services. If the appointment setters were required to be truthful, they would not be able to set any appointments - the ones that were "qualified" did not expect me, they expected the "rep" who set the meeting, unfortunately they were in a call center in Florida. My first order of business was to lie to the prospect as to why the rep they spoke with wasn't attending. Next, at all costs, when going through their script, we were trained to not say who paid us, who we really worked for (AMS, not the US Conf. of Mayors), or the fact that we were only trying to convince them to spend $500 for an evaluation only to send in the hired guns to rip their business processes apart and charge them for consulting services.
they paid for training, such as it was
unethical business practices, bait and switch
