I met a person a few years back while out doing a social gathering. I found out not long after speaking to him of the job he was offering. I had just recently moved into Maryland in which I settled on Hagerstown, MD because, of my sick aunt. I moved here to help her so I up and left Montana to move here. At the time I was jobless with no job I had too find some type of employment. This burly gentleman decided to give me a chance with his business. This where here the lies starteonion where he said I'm in the business of selling electrical products as well as home cleaning products to local business.

He asked that I come to the interview where I quickly learned it was in a small room within a big office space. That wasn't the worst part it was actually going door to door selling Kirby's but then the payday sounded so good. I therefore, marched on after the interview into the unpaid training they offered. It seemed odd for him to give me a job for which I had no previous experience in. Then we trained for like three days of which I started soon after. The worst comes from the long hard days work where you are supposedly guaranteed money every week to run appointments they setup.

The truth is your just knocking on doors there are no appointments. Not even half of the 12 so called appointments would let us enter. Then when they would they would be skeptical to buy since it wasn't just free cleaning but a sales pitch. Then I saiit okay well it cannot be that bad until my manager left me there only to return six hours later. When I asked him what happened he said something came up. I was of course pissed about why he wouldn't tell me what happened. This also to the fact appointments only last 1 -2 hours average. I got over it to then also learns the Vacuums was over priced which made me feel s****y.

I even managed to sell 1 my first week only to not get my 350 but only my 500. I thought where is all the rest of my money in which he said oh your commission took care of it what lids he mean. It only seems right since I would file a 1099 tax form also with no issuance I should get my full pay. Then I decided to give it another to the following week where things happened more of the same as last week. This wasn't easy work to be used and abused not to mention the work door to door was done in the Winter months. There wasn't really anywhere to use the bathroom either since most people would Isuzu shove is away on first knock. Then at the end of the week this boss manager dude was being very aggressive to the consumers who viewed the vacuum.

I was of course embarrassed to work for this company after this stunt. This also comes along with the manager refusing to pay me second week of wages which was 350. He said you didn't sell a vacuum well then I said what is the 350 for if you don't get that or to have it included in the commission. I managed to quit this job due to my aunts health since I was never with her many hours of the day. I also got another job soon after and never looked back although this so called manager still refuses to pay me to this day. If anyone finds this report please don't fall under false pretenses, fake ads, or the lot because, this company doesn't just rip off customers but also employees as well. It is a crying shame avoid like the plague.
