Fellow promotional ambassadors~ I would NEVER WORK FOR THIS COMPANY AGAIN. IT TAKES THEM A MINIMUM OF 2 MONTHS TO PAY YOU. OVER[/b] 2 MONTHS FOR A MEASLY 75 DOLLARS. THERE IS NO DIRECT LINE TO TALK TO ACCOUNTS PAYABLE.. SO YOU DEAL WITH AN EMAIL MESSAGE BACK AND FORTH. THEY LIE REPEATEDLY TO GET YOU OFF THEIR BACKS, SAYING THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL. . D. THEN AFTER ALL OF THAT THEY DON'T PAY YOU IN THE CONTRACT TIME.. WHICH SAYS ONE MONTH. 

IF THEY POST A RETORT,.. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. I HAVE FOUR MONTHS OF LETTERS BACK AND FORTH REQUESTING MY PAY CHECK OVER AND OVER... WITH A LOT OF RESPONSES ABOUT IT BEING IN THE MAIL... BEING PROCESSED... ON ITS WAY... OR THEY HAVEN'T GOTTEN PAID, SO THEY CAN'T PAY US.

THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE OF DEMANDING MY PAYCHECK HAS BEEN REASONABLY HUMILIATING. THIS ECONOMY IS BAD ENOUGH, BUT TO BE DUPED BY SHYSTY EMPLOYERS IS BEYOND AWFUL. 

GIVE IT A SHOT.. TRY CALLING THEM AND SEE IF SOMEONE PICKS UP. IT'S AN ANSWERING MACHINE, OR A PERSON DROPPING THE CALL.

I SUGGEST FINDING AN ALTERNATIVE COMPANY... IT'S NOT WORTH THE STRESS FOR THE EVENTUAL PAYCHECK, THAT MAY OR MAY NOT COME. I STILL HAVEN'T BEEN PAID... AND I WORKED FOR THEM FOR A WEEK IN THE END OF FEBRUARY.

NEVER NEVER AGAIN

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

BPI brand promotions LIES

AUTHOR: BPI Brand LIES - (United States of America)

As an ex BA of BPI brand I can tell you this - they lie! and will try everything in their power to NOT pay you.

They view everyone who works for them as some stupid, young 20-something that they feel they can take advantage of by not paying you.  Heck - you're in your 20s - you do Brand Ambassador work - you must be stupid - so you probably won't remember that you didn't get paid anyway.

How many people have worked for them and not gotten paid?  Many.

BPI Brand changed its name from BARRY PROMOTIONS a few years back when the complaints piled up and they couldn't get clients any more due to all the complaints (like this one) on the internet.

Type in 'Barry Promotions' in RipOffReport and see what pops up.  The same thing - not paying their brand ambassadors.

It takes a LONG TIME to get paid by them.

Yes, they will use many excuses like:  "Payment arrives after the client pays us" or "Huh, I thought we paid you?" or "You must wait 3 weeks for payment."  Needless to say, more than a month passes before you see a dime (sometimes 3 or 4 months).

I am certain, that after I post this, another "former employee" of the company will post something positive about bpi brand, but rest assured, it is just BPI Brand trying to cover themselves up with mock reports.

BPI brand will always try to weasel their way out of payment.  They will not change.  If you don't want the headache of non-payment, just stay away from them.

#2 UPDATE Employee

BPI Brand Marketing Solutions, INC

AUTHOR: BPI - (United States of America)

In regards to the submission by paymeplease, regarding non-payment to brand ambassadors.  This rep was paid after she posted this submission.  Her check was already on its way when she posted it.  The reps contract states and we have it on file signed by her that payment is received around 30 days after the event or when payment is received by the client.  The client paid the invoice late but this rep did receive payment.

This brand ambassador worked 05/07 and received payment already so it has clearly not been 4 months of emails as she states in her report above and we have all of the correspondence and contracts on file that proves this.  Also the number listed to contact our company is the office line and the correct number to contact is that of the reps account manager should she have any issues.  BPI was honest and up front regarding the late payment and has resolved this matter.
