I was recruited to work for Cutting Edge Marketing in Asheville North Caroline. (parent company is in Woodstook GA.).
Cutting Edge Marketing Dirrector Brandy West and Brandon Thomson Got me to quite my Job and make a career move with the promiss of a lot more money. I was struggling to pay my bills with my other job so this looked like the answer to all my hopes for me and my family. I quite my Job to go to work for Cutting Edge Marketing. After 120 days of working with Cutting Edge Marketing. The Director informed me that she was implimenting pay cut and minimals across the board for one of the New departments I was over. (Tour No Buys) Everyone had been hired at $12.00 an hour or $40. per sale.
Most were making about $120 a day till Brandy West and management team inplimented their bate and switch. They dropped all Tour no buy employees pay to $10. an hour with no $40 a sell. a person could only hit commition if they sold 20 or more deals in a week. (only one person could sell more than 20 in a week every so often) Let me show you how this pay cut works out. Before pay cut 19 sales in a week a person would make $760. for the weeks work. New pay scale 30 hour 19 sales. $300. This is a crime! These kind of actions done to employees will sink peoples ship, as it has mine.
I was a full time manager working 40 to 50 hours a week. My old job before Cutting Edge I was bringing home $650 a week. When I went to work for Cutting Edge Marketing I started bringing home $800 a week or better. Then I got my pay cut (or as they put it minimal requirments) and I got a pay check for $440 for a 45 hour work week. I pulled Brandon Thomson to the side and asked him if Upper management was pleased with my proformance. Brandon Thomson informed me I was "Doing a great job" I pleaded my case and told them I felt it was wrong to hire people at one pay rate then 120 days later cut their pay by 50% when you are happy with the work they are doing. Brandon Thomsom told me that he felt it was best that we just part ways.
I imformed him I could not afford to quite. The next day I was fired. Brandon informing me that he has spoke with Brandy West about me being un-happy with the pay cut. I was told she said "If he is not on board with the pay cut fire him we can replace him with a free ad on craigslist. I have sense has to leave my life, wife, pets and home to find work elsewhere in the country. I'm a 49 maried man in a beautiful loving relationship with my wife. Now I sleep in a hotel room in Kansas doing door to door sales in hopes I can sell and send my wife enough money to not loose everything we have. Cutting Edge is a company that can not be trusted.
Also Cutting Edge Marketing has another Manager over customer service named Kelli Robinson who sells drugs from the office. While I was there two people got fired for informing Brandy West (Brandy and Kelli are "Very" close) That Kelli was selling drugs. Really in my hearts of hearts this is a company that sells Vacation Club memberships and if anyone knows anything about vacation clubs you know they are a marketing scam company.
I need to know if there is anything I can do? Do I have any rights? Did Cutting Edge violate my rights or law in any way? Is it legal to do what they did to employees?
