My husband was looking for a job and the ad pretty much doesn't give that much information and he called. He told me he was going to be a manager and own his own office and that they will be training him. I was exstatic and then I learned that first he was going to be selling cologne and perfume by shopping centers until they think he's ready for his own office. I didn't like it but I figured I'd try and be supportive and give it a shot. I never saw him. He was due in the office by 8:30am until 7pm and that was only on tuesdays and thursdays. Wedensdays they want you to come in 8:30am and want you to late merch and that could be until 5am the next morning. And that also goes for friday.
Saturday you need to be there by 9am and turn in the money you made and you could be there until 1pm but then they want you to go back out and sell. Then Sundays they want you to come in 8am and do an overnight until tuesday night at 9pm. They call these satalights and you drive to another state in your own vehicle and you have to try and sell bottles of there perfume to pay for motel rooms. The bottles supposedly go for $30 but want you to sell them at $25 so people think they are getting a deal. From that $25 you make $5 is yours. My husband maybe was able to sell 3-5 bottles a day what bills or apartment can you get for $25 a week; that's just gas money. I've even went to his office and sat through some of the meetings.
Robert and Rikki are brainwashing these people. Rob has told people when interviewing people for the job just state facts don't get in to a conversation. If people ask questions they are d****e bags and obviosly aren't getting it. He's even said when people ask for a website make up stuff and keep going on and on so the person just says forget it. The reason for that is is because your talking to them and stating everything what else more do they need to know, websites are for fancy people. He's even told them that this is a buisness opportunity why would you want to work at walmart and making someone else money when you can do this all for yourself.
Well walmart pays a paycheck and a whole lot more then $25 a week. These people stand outside in 20 below weather making money for rob and rikki. After my husband meet a certain "level" they told him that he'll be making $7 a bottle and the people he trains he'll be making a certain percentage off of what they sell. But Rob is taking out $150 for the new office. So again they make no money just empty promises. After you get an office you have to pay a mortgage, heat, water ect. And your employees are supposed to sell this stuff what moeny are you making it just keeps going back into their product.
I was upset and I called my husband and told him that he was wasting his time Rob heard my husband say he wasnt wasting his time and hung up on me. I called back and Rob started screaming at me how I was unsupportive. My husband is lazy and garbbage, if he was lazy why would he be there on time everytime and stand out in cold a*s weather to sell stupid perfume. And I mean he was screaming at the top of his lungs at me. and they are supposed to be professional. They are nothing but manipulative brainwashers. Please stay clear from these people especially if you have babies beacuse they'll never have food on the table!
