*Consumer Suggestion: They almost got me too
Orientation was like none I had ever been to. they had a guy there by the name of Nate. he was a motivational speaker. he got everyone really pumped up and believing that yes...I can do this! I figured it was worth a shot and if I didn't give it a try I would kick myself later. So I sat thru the orientation and listened to everything they had to say.
I was so excited when I heard that you could have a flexible schedule. work 9-5. they set up all of your appts for you. they close the deals and do the actual sales end of it. this is great!! Boy was I wrong!
They tell you on Thursday that this weekend you have to do 10 demos. these demos are with your friends and family. you have to set up the appts! Ughhh. I hate asking my friends and family for stuff like this. But I did the 10 demos, and actually sold 2! I thought. this isn't all that bad, or is it?? We were told that if we did the demos. we would be paid that coming week!
We go to the office for the first day. I walk into a tiny, grungy building. no sign outside. stale cigarette smoke in the air. absolutely disgusting! The owner, Kevin Mathers proceeds to go over all the specifics of the company.
Now we find out that they only schedule appts at: 1pm, 4pm, and 7pm! Wait. what happened to 9-5?? You must do 25 appts in 2 weeks in order to get paid. ok. Well he hands us slips for the appts that the office has set for us and away we go. We show up to the first appt. over 45 minutes away. get the door slammed in our face. Go to the next appt do our demo. but the lady is not interested. now when I call back in to let Kevin know. he wants me to pressure the lady into buying! (in training we were told that we don't have to do the sales end. and if we are pushy at all with the customers we lose our job)
She wasn't interested. and she didn't have that kind of money!! We go to the third one and we again get a door slammed in our face! Great. we now are realizing that there is no way that we will possibly get 25 appts done! (and yes, you must get in the door and do the whole demo for it to count!) So basically they are asking you to go out and do all of this knowing full well that you will never get 25 appts done. you will probably sell a couple systems. and they pocket all the profit!
So you are working for FREE!
I started to pick up on this scam when I noticed that there was another ad in the paper starting the process all over again!! They run this in 2 week cycles, knowing that is how long it will take for people to figure out they are getting scammed!
I am still waiting for a paycheck!! It has been over two weeks from the time we were told we would get paid! I have made phone calls and all I get is, I'll check into it!!
And to top it all off. he sold a USED system to my MOM, claiming it was NEW! I am trying to work with FilterQueen direct on this issue. but not getting very far!
So if you see an ad like this in the paper, RUN, don't be fooled like I was!
