I have to agree with the many
reports on Automax Training otherwise operating as the G Group LLC in the
location where I obtained the "training." First, I was
contacted by an email telling me that the car industry was back and that there is
no longer a recession in Auto Sales promising above average income (which
should have been my first tip off to a scam). In the advertisement, they
said that Rex Perry (an automotive dealership in Nacogdoches, TX) was providing
paid training after you were hired.
Well, they were supposedly interviewing for salesman on Monday and Tuesday and
going to do training Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. At that point, there
was no mention of any tuition. I was given a very short interview along
with another interviewee and told to show up at the Fredonia Hotel for
training. At that point, there was no mention of tuition or very minimal
hints if any. I also found out that they were supposedly interviewing
around 100 applicants. In any event, I show up at the Fredonia Hotel on
Thursday and find that there are around 25 to 30 people who were picked.
Some were very shy and timid unlike what you would expect in a car
In any event, we were given paperwork to sign at that point that said that we
weren't hired yet and hinted that the next day or so would tell. No money
was collected on the first day. On the second day, everyone was hit up
for a $499 training fee and signed a short contract and paid $499 which would
be reimbursed by the dealership after 90 days. So much for paid training.
I guess that it was paid by us. It was paid by all of us.
After 3 days, we were told to come back to the dealership on Monday.
I was supposedly chosen for a sales position along with about 7 others
and others were sent away. In any event, the dealership never had me sign
any of the paperwork that is usually indicative of someone being hired and
would not provide any training on the products unless I made a sale.
After 3 attempts to get the paperwork and being told by Robert Wilson the
sales manager that my job in sales would be to hold the customer until he could
stick it in, There was a $300 draw which was too little to even pay my bills.
I did not go back. I am out $499 that I will never see again.
Please don't make the same mistake. Avoid Bob Gaber and The G Group
and Automax Training at all cost. Get books on sales by Joe Girard or
others instead which is where he copied all of his so called training
materials. At least, I did not get thrown out of Walmart for soliciting
which is what happened to one of the trainees.
