I had a bad feeling from the start about this company, but I ended up going to the 1st and 2nd interview just because I was desperate for a job. They make it seem like its a dream job - you get to have your own office, hire people, etc. And that we would be making tons of money (during training too).
So I go to the orientation and then the day after that - and everybody is heading out to sale sale sale. I thought ok— maybe we're going to some special sight just for this one day to try and sell the products. But we ended up going business to business. My 2nd day of selling - a police office actually gave me a ticket for soliciting. I go back to the office and they said - oh, we'll take care of it, and then they crumbled it up and threw the ticket away.
It seemed like I was one of the few people that worked there who actually drove, because I was the one who always had to drive around to each business place. And because I’m too nice for my own good, I also bought lunch for one of the people too, since they had no money.
It wasn’t until the third day of selling that I looked up the company's name online and found ALL these things about how it is a huge scam and blah blah blah. That very next day - I went to the office and confronted them about the articles I read.
One of the managers told me that they saw those articles too when they first started— and how I shouldn't listen to people that make less money than me...
Seriously? Did he seriously just say that?
Let’s just say I quit that day.
A few weeks later, I realized that my court date for the soliciting ticket was in a couple days, so I called up the office and asked if they took care of the ticket yet... And they said not yet. And that they were going to send a letter out at the end of the week. They told me that they would take care of that ticket right away and then maybe 3 weeks later - and they still didn't do anything about it.
I plan on going to court tomorrow and telling them about how big of a scam the company really is and end this once and for all.
