SEO Reputation Management at its best!

A little over 2 weeks ago I responded to an ad on craigslist offering entry level management jobs; what I discovered was nothing close. My first interview was on Monday the 14th of December, 2009. Jeremy Keifer was so pleased with my attitude and appearance and told me "I never do this...never, but I am just gonna go ahead and let you know right now (instead of waiting a couple days) that you are invited to the 2nd interview!" Like most of us, I am unemployed and this was GREAT news. I arrived on Friday, 18th of December, 2009. I was seated in a room with 24 chairs, a whiteboard, a speakers booth and a group of other girls. This was the 2nd interview? As Abby Noble, a "branch manager" kept us entertained by chatting with us about life, Jeremy prepared his 2 hour "interview". Jeremy Keifer came in and started telling us about the company, who was who and what their titles were. Jeremy Keifer claims he has been working as a branch manager for over 7 years, Abby Noble has been there about a year, John Stoner has also been there about a year and then there is Dan Chasin, also 7 years. The company is Coastline management and they claim to sell designer parfumes with out the expensive packaging. Jeremy says, "it's like going to buy a Pepsi, you can pay &1.79 for the bottle or get it from the fountain for $.79 cents. The difference in cost is the fancy packaging." Jeremy claims this company is 27 years old and worth millions. We were asked to bring a pen and pad of paper so I can provide you with detailed notes on what else was said. Most importantly, I can't describe in words how much Jeremy pumped us full of hope and excitement. We were told we would get keys to our own office, have a staff, secretary, profit sharing, bonuses, paid vacations and all this in 10-13 weeks of training! Unless of course we are on the "fast track", then it could be a soon as 6-8 weeks of training. Needless to say, I fell for this. Monday was my first day of training, we were told that just this one time we were going to be given this special offer so we could make some cash before Christmas. We were told that as part of our training we would need to sell some parfume...ok. We were told that whoever sold the most by Tuesday morning would a $500.00 bonus for first place and so on. We were told we only needed to sell 50 bottles before our "promotion" in training from sales to administrative. We were told if we sold 25 bottles by Tuesday morning it would count as our 50 and we could move out of that part of our "training". We were also required to fill out a background check which now provides them with my social security number and personal info. I showed up Tuesday morning with 25 bottles sold, all in cash because then I didn't have to charge ridiculous processing fees. Not only did I not get my bonus, nothing was mentioned of my "promotion". I did ask Dan about and he told me they were going to hand them out at Wednesday meeting. Ok, so I get there Wednesday and the same little room has some new faces. The new faces are the girls who are ahead of us in the "training" and they are now "managers in training". They were going to take us under their wing and "train" us. Next thing I know we are out in Olympia going business to business tring to sell knock-off perfumes and colognes. I spent 6 hours with this lovely young lady as she tried to teach me how to make sales. She is 19 years young and elated about her new carreer. My excitement had dwindled on the other hand. I am seeing through the glam and talk now and I am not excited. When we return back to the office, the others were trying to high five and be as enthusiastic as one can after realizing they have just been had. Now the entire group was chatting and preparing to go to "wings" for Wednesday night fun. I go because I want my bonus from Jeremy and I am not sure I like what I am seeing and hearing. I left there without my bonus and an unclear idea on if I would return. Over my Christmas vacation I did some research and my findings are more than unpleasant; what I found makes me sick and extremely sad. Turns out these guys are professional liars and amazing talkers. All but Abby Noble has been noted in blogs on ripoff report as being liars and scam artists. They were on the news in Arizona for all the lying and deceiving. When Dan Chasin was asked how many people he has brought in and trained who are actual managers, he admitted none, yet. This company has also had other titles such as: National Management and Global Marketing. It appears these guys were chased out of a few different cities and appear to be unstoppable. I returned this morning to Coastline Management as if I were showing up for work and nobody was there. Well, no "employees", just Jeremy and Abby. I told Jeremy that I would like to have my money back that I invested into the friends and family sales or he could give me the bonus he said I would win along with the perfume. Of course, Jeremy had no idea about the bonus so I continued to say that I would just like my money back that I had invested into bottles I had not even recieved. Jeremy wrote me a check because he said Dan was the only one with authorization to the bank and funds. I took the check to the bank it was issued and it could not be cashed because the account had innsufficient funds. These people are hiring 17-20 something year olds and filling heads with dreams of a carreer and exciting future. Couldn't happen at a sadder time...
