I replied to an ad off of Craig's List a little over a month ago for Fresh Air Solutions. A distributor of the Rainbow cleaning system. The ad mentioned paid training, so I took a look. Big mistake. After three days of watching demonstrations of the rainbow, they turned me and another guy loose on people we know with little to no other information. What to do if we DO sell one, how to close, anything. After six demonstrations, I finally sold one.
They do not pay you like they promise. Randy Hetrick, the owner of Fresh Air Solutions, had told me during training they would pay 32.68 per demo, reguardless of a sale. And you could stay on per demo pay and get a smaller commission if you choose. After my sale, he claimed I told him to go up to full commission, which I did not. Commission with per demo is 150, without demo pay is 225. Plus an extra 50-100 in booking and referral bonuses. My first check was $346. That's six demos- 196 And Commission- 150. That's still short the $100 for booking and referral. When you try to talk about money, his favorite word is "uh."
Then he went on to say later that I didn't follow proper procedures by sending a txt when I leave each demo so I was not going to get paid for them. Which Amber Armstrong, the marketing director there said to do. Either text or call. I have done a dozen, and if this was the wrong way to do it, why wasn't I corrected? Why didn't they say anything? Overall they only paid about half of what they should have. I had five other demos they refuse to pay for. DO NOT commit to anything with a verbal contract. If I could, I would slap myself on the back of the head before it all happened.
In the training, Randy had told us he was putting an office in Chattanooga within a week. That was a month and a half ago. No office in Chattanooga. When I first started from the interview, I did not realize they were from out of town. Admittedly, I should have left when I knew.
I'm a Christian myself and this is sad to say, but as a general rule, any business that talks about God in an interview and training is more than likely a scam. This was.
