And as a Trainee, youre supposed to get 9% commission on each sale, 18% commission after that and the percentage of the commission increases based on the position you are in. If I remember correctly, the highest commission is about 23% or 32%, or something along those lines.Do the mathif you sell $5000 worth of merchandise, your commission is greater than the minimum, so thats useless. You do not get the $1200 or $1500 every 2 weeks if you do not sell that amount period.
The woman who trained us kept telling us that this was a guarantee and regardless of what we sold (we could sell everything or sell $0), we were still going to get at least $1200 for the first 2 weeks and $1500 each 2 weeks after that. Well, think about it just a little morethe first 2 weeks, they tell you that you have to do the sales pitch on your family and friends and there is no obligation to buy anything since its just trainingthen you get there.and they try try try try like there is no tomorrow to pressure your family/friends to buy things.
Well like I said, I worked there for a week, got a ticket, since the only parking they have nearby is metered parking, drove around endlessly, didnt see my boyfriend (who I live with) damn near the whole week cause they make it seem like each presentation is going to be 45 minutesthats til you do itthen you realize each one takes at the very least an hour and up. I made 4 sales2 for a $700 knife set, and 2 more for $150 vacuum Tupperware setummmyanever got any commission on anythingall the money I used in gas, tolls, and that damn ticket are lost. They make you buy your training materials, business cards everything.
And another thing, they give a discount to 1st time buyers (whenever its the first time you have been to a certain residence)the discount is 25% off with 5 referrals and 50% on store merchandise with 8 referralsheres what they neglect to tell you..that nifty little discountcomes out of the sales persons commission. The managers (trainers, whatever you call them), they pay $40 for each trainee since the turn around rate is so high, they cant afford to pay for all the materials they lose (they give you the water purification book and the air purification book for free you have to pay for everything else).
Its a huge pyramid scheme with the higher ups making all the money and the people at the bottom just barely making it by, if that. I knew someone who worked there for 6 monthsat the meetings, he was all yay for caricothen one day, he was my trainer, so he was in my car. That day, he proceeded to tell me most of the info I have provided you herethen told me that he is in danger of getting evicted and his car is going to get reposedhe cant afford to make his car insurance payments which was why he asked me to be the driver that day. That was no less than 2 hours after I saw him at a training meeting where they said he earned over $3000 that weekend. iF HE EARNED $3000 THAT WEEKEND, THEN HOW WAS HE IN DANGER OF BEING THROWN OUT OF HIS APARTMENT????? ITS ALL A LIE!!! STAY AWAY UNLESS YOU HAVE MONEY AND TIME TO BURN!!!
I feel very stupid for having been tricked by these people, but I hope that what has happened to me, or to that guy does not happen to anyone else, so my advice is - stay as far away as humanly possible!!!!
