Sadly I fell victim to this fake and fraudulent company called 5 North Inc. (www.5northnyc.com) This company posted ads for account executive position on numerous job sites and they say that its a form of marketing and advertising firm that "help" fortune 500 companies get their word out. Well all of that talk is FALSE because all you do is follow a person around going from door to door asking to see a utility bill. This compnay prays on new college grads that are looking for work (i was one of them) and they expect them to walk the streets in crazy weather with little pay. One "supposed" worker at this company went over compensation saying that a account executive can make between $300 and $600 every week, while actually the account exes make less than a $100 a week. This company was based out of St. Lucia, MO and they have decided to come here to New York and continue their scams and decite. Don't let them get you like how they got me!!!!! This is more than a warning STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!

I have a open case with the Better Business Bureau who will definitely look into this matter and make sure that this company is shut down, so if you see this comapny call or email or try to contact you, stay away its for your better good.

P.S. There are other complaints about this company so please do your research!

New York Client Solutions is pretty much the same thing. I worked for them and quit.

Door to door. On my feet for 10+ hours a day. Worked for 4 weeks and only made $220 dollars.

Google DS Max. 5 North and Troy International are in this same shady scampire.

Wow they just called me to call them back for an interview. I remembered the address on 31street in New York City.

Funny thing is I worked for Appaco Group going from door to door trying to get people to sign up for Childfund AND THERE ADDRESS IS ON 30th street.

These companies are both scams, Appacco had me on my feet 10+ hrs the first day, they always mentioned they would pay $350/week or $70/day at 10 hrs a day is less than$7/hr DONT DO IT. The reviews are right they go to WORKFOCE ONE IN ALL BOROUGHS looking for recent grads or people out of work WITH NO CHILDREN.

I totally agree and have have had a terrible experience they brag about their company this and that, but man its going to people door to door i was walking all around brooklyn to ask people to change their connet bill to direct supplies whatever, it was but every person you go to is already so frustrated because they are disturbed by so many of these scam people troubling them to change their supplier so they have to pay less but few of them who already did something like this in the past got even higher bill than their earlier ones, lol so they are so they insult you. I just went there for 2 days and figured out what a big scam it was.

Its like making money out of people in return for almost nothing.

8 hours of listening to those rejections and they pay nothing . well i hope to save you some time so beware.

I didn't mean to hit ***. I actually wanted to see reviews of why people thought your post was ***.

Could you please remove my vote. I'm trying to research the company to determine if it is actually a fraud or worth my time. Sorry about that!

Please remove if it can be done. Thanks.

They called me today saying i needed a little more qualifications but wanted to speak to me to ask me some 'follow up' questions. When i called them back they wanted to know was i still looking for a fulltime position and offered to do ask interview.

i was puzzeled about me not meeting the qualifications but still wasn't to do an interview, i asked them what dots this job contain and Cloey (the girl i spoke to) said it's a marketing company for 500 fortune companies. That's when i knew it was ***. I looked up the reviews for this company and here i am.

Don't fall for this bull *** company. They use people that work for them and try to scam the customers to stitch their electric company account

Wow I have an interview tomorrow and I felt like something was off. So glad I read this! If it was maybe 3 reviews, I would have said "we'll maybe they just had bad experiences," but 45 reviews??!!! And they're not BBB accredited! Oh no not worth the trip but hey might still shoot to the city and shop :grin

Thanks everything for the honesty!!! Don't waste your time with 5North guys!!!
