It all started when I saw an employment ad in the newspaper. It stated "Customer Service" and offered $520/week salary. It asked that you call into this number, leave your name and contact information, and they will contact you back with an interview time.
Being desperate for work at the time, I called in. I had an interview set up right away. I went in and at first the entire building looked sketchy. It was basically empty - no furniture, receptionist. Just a bunch of being carrying large boxes around.
I was then greeted by the person conducting the interviews. His name was Clint. He asked me a few questions, & told me a bit about the job. He said nobody would work past 7:30pm. He told me that we were not "door-to-door vacuum salesmen." Shortly after I accepted the job offer.
The training was in a dirty room. He told us about all these luxurious vacations and prizes. How you could make up to a grand a week, etc.
My first day starting I arrived about 8:30am. We packed into a dirty van about 10am and started driving. I asked where we're going, and nobody had an answer to give me. We stopped once at a gas station where I didn't use the restroom & only purchased a package of peanuts and some water. Had I known this would be my last chance for food and a bathroom break, I would've taken advantage of it.
They told me I would have preset appointments to customers houses. Little did I know, this meant someone would hop out of the car, knock on some strangers house, invite themselves inside, and then come back to get me to present the product to the customer.
I pictured visiting houses of wealthy customers, who could probably actually afford these $2000 vacuums. Nope. We entered filthy houses of sketchy people. The appointment setters knocked on doors well into the night, until at least 10:30pm. Being that we were 2 1/2 hours away from home, I was terrified I'd never see my family again.
After stating that I'd have to use the restroom real soon, the driver refused to allow me until at least 2 hours had pass. I hadn't eaten a single thing the entire day, and had a headache from the other 6 smokers in the car.
When we finally headed home, I noticed that the driver and passenger were smoking *** in the front seat. My phone was dying, but made it a point to tell my husband that if I didn't make it, this was why. I finally made it home around 1:30am that morning, with their expectations of seeing me again about 8:30am. Needless to say I never showed back up. I was never paid for that day.
This company is running illegally and unethically. They take advantage of people hoping to get a call back for a job in hours. I should've just not even bothered, because the REAL job I was waiting for hired me a week after this hellish day. If you see ANY ad in the newspaper telling you 1.) NOW HIRING 2.) $520/wk or 3.) Customer Service positions available... it is probably this company, and probably a scam. Look out, too, because they use different phone numbers to trick you!
