1st Defense Security - GE Monitronics & Kigan Martineau Advertising Director Selling Servicehenderson, Nevada United States of America
Buyer Beware also any individuals seeking employment RUN! THIS is the worst company I have ever encountered in my life. The owner Thad Gravo is a complete JERK that cares nothing about his employees or bridges he burns. The stoner that is labeled a Vice President, Jason Holland is a complete JOKE. Comes to work high on pot, that is if he ever shows up nobody has a clue what this guy does for responsibilities. This is a complete snake oil sales environment. They train their sales team (door knockers) to represent themselves as GE security, there is NO such thing! They say they are GE for the name recognition and so that people wont really google 1st defense or check BBB and discover all the dirt about the company. These sales guys then tell home owners they are looking for advertising homes which is a complete lie, any homeowner will qualify for "free equipment" with a 3 year contract for monitoring with their monitoring company Monitronics. READ fine print in the contract, they use 3rd party rent a cops if your alarm goes off that then charge you everytime they show up!! Every customer I've met that signed up with these jokesters are so upset and cant get out of their contracts without being put into collections. This company uses GE Simon wireless equipment which is the cheapeat biggest P.O.S. alarm system you can buy. You can buy the system out right online for less than a hundred bucks!! And on top of that they will install wireless equipment to your prewired home?????? HORRIBLE!! Oh and the 2 way going directly to the cops they preach?? COMPLETE LIE ask the police dept! The company has ripped off many X employees for their last paychecks and by breeching contracts. They have them on a 1099 program so they really dont pay taxes on them and when they screw the employees its easier to get away with it. They also 1099 management staff that have schedules and offices which is completely ILLEGAL. IRS is going to love to find out about that!!!
Do not waste your time applying for a job!
Do not waste your time doing any business with these dead beats!!
You've BEEN WARNED
