SCAM ALERT********First off I would like to say that I AM NOT AT ALL a disgruntled employee.......
About three weeks ago I applied for a sales job from an ad on craigslist for CCtv services. Seemed like a good small mom and pop company to work for....Thier ad read that they are looking for sales rep for inside sales ..salary plus commission. I met with Paul Franzano, who from what he told me just made manager about 6 months ago at the company..nice guy..but has no clue on what bieng a sales manager is about....especially with his hygene , but thats beside the point..
Now I am not wet behind the ears with sales, I made over 100k a year three years in a row and my backround is securities(stocks) and mortgages , you know.. real sales with legal documents and personal info...I took the job becuase I was transitioning from one job to another and had a two week gap between the two, so rather than be lazy I figued id make a few dollars until I started my new job on Oct 15th,( 6 figure Job by thw way)
So my first dayI get on the phone and make 300 calls a day , basically getting hung up on becuase the leads are recycled garbage..once agan I was cold calling which is something im not afraid of. Long story short I was basically setting appointments for the owners to go out and meet with the prospect and try to close for a security system thats over priced and garbage..
Scam #1..Thier misleading ad saying its sales when its appointment setting.Now I made a sale in the first week a 10 k sale at that and it was a record for a new guy..
Scam#2 However while I was at my desk, I noticed several calls come in the thier unprofessional, so called accountant Dana who basically cursed at everyone who called ..about people who worked there complaining that they never got paid and demanding thier money..didnt think nothing of it...I worked thier a week and left mid day friday, just couldnt do the telemarking thing any more...I was told my check was mailed three times...never came.
so they got me for $620.00 and I filed a complaint with the BBB which they are not a member, with the State Attorney general and the Dep of Labor..shame on you CCTV services ,,,I thought you were a good company.....Pay people for thier work...DO NOT WORK THERE IF YOUR READING THIS>>>SCAM SCAM SCAM>>>>>YOU WILL NOT GET PAID!!!
