Parabolic USA (career coaching and staffing) -- Several red flags
I was curious about Parabolic (parabolicusa.com) so I filled out their brief interest survey and booked a Calendly call...
Red flag 1: They ask in the survey whether you are okay with paying for their service (implying that you pay before even getting an offer)
Red flag 2: I scheduled two separate calls through Calendly with two separate employees and neither showed up for their calls. I even sent out reminder emails 5 minutes in and they each replied later with some BS excuse as to why they got held up.
Red flag 3: Several of their employees are interns (currently in undergrad) and several others don't even have Parabolic listed on their LinkedIn profiles, which reminds me of people I somewhat know that are in those mega-sized pyramid schemes (, etc.) who also knew not to post it on their profiles.
Red flag 4: They do not post any of their job listings on their website. There is no knowing that they even have many postings to list..
