My story is like many others who has worked for one of these cydcor companies. It all started out the same with the interviews that tell you nothing about what you are getting yourself into and the day of o and also asking questions about what you are going to be doing and not receiving any straight answers.
Basically I just wanted to warn anyone who is with or interviewing with Defrancesco Acquistions which is now located in Pennsauken NJ. This is one of the worst jobs anyone could ever have and the owner, Dave Defrancesco is the scum of the earth. I have never met a bigger liar in my life. This is what he does for a living, he misleads people. I'm not quite sure how he sleeps at night.
The first month of working there wasn't that bad, at least I was making some money but I always found it very strange everyone thought Dave was like a prodigy child or something. "You have talk to Dave to get ahead" everyone said. He always said the same stuff and frankly none of the information was helpful. You could not talk about negatives which is weird because in most jobs people discuss the bad things that happen to help each other. Say I made no money that day and someone said, How was your day, I would have to say, great!! That was weird.
Anyway back to Dave. We were doing AT&T sales and I just started to get the hang of it and make some money, then we change to Verizon and go on salary. Now I'm making like 400 dollars a week after taxes for a 60 hr work week. It was terrible but good old Dave kept telling us this is gonna be big money when commissions kick in. It could have been good money because selling verizon was cake compared to AT&T. For some reason two months later still no commission and we're still hearing this "as soon as commissions kick in" bull s***.
When asked about it he didn't know what to say and he started ramble on and on about great knew opportunities doing different campaigns. Bottom line, there were not going to be commissions for Verizon so everyone worked theier a** off for no reason. Many people quit and so Dave, the great guy that he is took 200 dollars out of everyones next check saying that for a month he had been overpaying us 60 dollars a week, as if we needed to lose more money. Most of us got our money back because he was scared we were going to do something about it.
Bottom line is that this company is a joke. Most of its long time employees live off their parents or they are in debt. Dave, who claims to have so much money, lives in a crappy apartment with four other employees. That really sounds promising. Everyone who is there should leave. Especially those of you that have been there for years when supposedly it takes 12 months to be owner. Open your eyes!!!
What kind of company has to deceive people in the interviewing process to get people to work there. Do you really want to lie and manipulate people for living? Even if you did make good money which I've found out that no owner makes six figures. I could go on all day. Glad I'm gone!!
