*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Gateway Interactive Marketing
Makeup is their newest division with about 15 offices around the nation. This division was started by Scott Williams (VP of Smart Circle, originally with the Home Depot and Clearance divisions). Ian Laird, one of Scott William's original employees of the Los Angeles office helped start the division with offices in Miami, L.A., and San Francisco.
The problem with this company and all of the offices is their business practices. The company is very corrupt. They have people work 72 hour weekly work schedules. They treat everyone as contractors though these people are involved in interviewing, warehouse duties, training duties, etc. The hours are mandatory.
Not only are the hours horrible, but the way in which the items are sold is illegal. It's clearly soliciting. Walking up and down the aisles of grocery stores, department stores, etc., without the stores knowledge. On my interview I was told to just keep going until we get kicked out.
I worked briefly for this company at the San Diego office. Andrew Knapp, Jared Purney, and Sarah Osborn (all leaders) did drugs, common knowledge to all, and on many occasions it was sold while on the job. And there was rampant sexual harassment and other forms of bullying and harassment within the workplace. When other leaders went to management after learning of this issues they were terminated. It's clear management (in the case of the San Diego office, Ian Laird and Sandy El-Reyes) doesn't care, they just want the cash flow. And sales people would fake their numbers, the books are basically cooked.
And when issues were raised to the corporate office in Foothills Ranch they just ignore it and pretend they have nothing to do with the local offices. And the offices just quickly change their names when the press becomes bad....another bad sign. Foundation Marketing in San Diego became Keystone to hide from the press. Diamond, Inc. is another one in Encino, CA. This offices are all over under different "ficticious" names.
Stay away from this bad company!!!
