I worked for this company for two years, in fact I was a top producer for my first year. The strange thing was that after all was said and done, I was continuously broke. For my first six months I had to drive 200+ miles every day because I had an incompetent boss who didn't like to drive himself, said the company didn't pay him enough. Every sale he made was fraudulent. Then all of my customers started dropping off the books because the company wouldn't pay their claims. I was trained to say deceitful things and when I brought that up, I was told oh, we're not paid to think. Really?!? I spent so much time and effort and money trying to make a buck, it was all gone on gas. I finally called it quits when they wanted me to work in an area that was 200 miles from my home, and not pay for lodging or gas.
See, these people were deceitful from the get-go. I got a call from a lady that they had received my application and wanted to offer me a "managerial sales position with a salary". I went to what I thought was a special interview, turns out there were about five people shuffled into a room. We all got the same pitch, but it was an excellent pitch. I bought into it. I was promised my own territory and $500/week for 13 weeks, plus paid training. They did pay for the hotel, have no complaints about that (it was very nice). Came with free breakfast plus $20/per diem + miles. I could normally survive off $20/day, but we were in the middle of Addison, which is hardly a $20 per day area. Then I was stuck training with the worst sales person I knew who sorted through all of the leads himself and kept giving his reps the same ones over and over again. The people who had been with the company for ages were territorial a-holes who had no problem working in your designated area but would cry to upper management if you even mentioned one of their customers names.
I had five managers in my two years there. Four out of five were fired for doing suspicious things. After two months, I was the only left out of my training class, after two years, the only one in my territory. I don't know why I didn't catch on sooner. I was constantly getting charge backs. I quit on account of the gas expenses and I never received my 1+ year renewals. When I tried to have someone show me where they were on my check, I kept getting stonewalled. I made more in my first 6 months at my new job then I did in a year with this company.
