When I had been let go of my only job I had ever been let go of, I was desperate for something better and something fast. I should have known that the ad in the paper was just as it seemed--too good to be true. (hint 1)
Well it turned out to be exactly that. It was worded something like this "Looking for 12-15 professional, energetic people with awesome customer service experience. Starting salary 2k a month! Call for immediate interview!"
Well, stupid of me, I called. Like i said, desperate. I went in for an interview. I was hired on the spot. (hint 2) I specifically asked them in interview, "Is this a door-to-door sales job? because that's not my style." They continually insisted it wasn't & that sales were not necessary. Those lieing bastards...But the joke was on me. I went out, bought a few nice work outfits, supplies for my job...ect. Everybody around me tried to talk some sense into me. From my friends, to my family...everyone. I should have listened. The first sentence the "number 1 trainer in the world" said was 'beware of what others say, they can cripple your career.' Honestly, I'm not sure how these a**holes sleep at night, with all of their lies and decieving. I went through 2 weeks of UNPAID training. Learned how to set up & tear down the display of this over-priced vaccum. We were -PROMISED- $2000/mo in our interview. None of us that signed up was informed that it was in fact a door-to-door, no pride, lowlife job, UNTIL THE FIRST DAY! They took us up to cheyenne wy. We were gone for 13 f**kin hours. And it persisted that way for 2 wks. Then it finally hit me. I had worked a month without ANYTHING to show for it. And most of all I was embarrassed to have put myself in this scandal. I finally had the balls to tell them to f**k off when they signed me up for a 3 week road trip without my consent! They called and said "you leave tomorrow." & I said "no, you f**kers leave tomorrow. I didn't sign up for this stress & bullshit. Have a safe trip."

The worst part is that i actually convinced two innocent & hardworking couples to buy one of these products. And i will admit, it really is a great product. But it's not worth the $1800. & this company should NOT be supported simply for it's manipulative ways; to the employees and consumers.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

horrible company!

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

I live in Indiana and the same thing happened to me! You have said absolutely everything I want to say to these people I hope they read these posts and realize how wrong what they are doing is. It has to be a company wide thing for it to happen in two different states. I walked out the door on day one!

Platinum distribution

AUTHOR: ReelinRyan - (United States of America)

Is this the Place on 177 S. Madison Avenue. I just called and got an interview tomorrow. I live about 45 minutes away and I need to know if I shouldn't waste my time or money on this interview. I'm desperate too and needed a job.
