I was looking for work. I had a job lined up and had to wait for them to complete a background check. In the mean time I was still looking. I found this site listed as a sales position. I was interviewed and started training the next day.

Class started with 9 people. By the second day there was only 3. I stayed because I assumed I would be getting paid for training- since it had never be stated otherwise. It wasn't until the 3rd day (final day) that I was given forms to sign about the training. One of the forms forced me to agree to the terms of not getting payed for training. I was very upset. I was even further angered by the realization that I was going to be an independent contractor selling the vacuums. This is a huge deal because that changes the actual "base" pay that I would be receiving. Unfortunately, I had with drawn my application at the other employment.

I should have known better because it wasn't until the very end that I started to grasp what the company was actually about. Yes it is great to have two bullet proof fans covered by a lifetime warranty (which needs a 175.00 activation fee) but it doesn't cover the belts, brush-rolls, bulbs, or bolts (the things that will usually break). 

To make this worse when I called in after my first demonstration I was forced to be rude to a family/friend member. That was the final straw (I thought). 

When I called the next day to end my contract with them my "team leader" tried to convince me to stay. He told me that I would be missing out on a great opportunity. I politely told him that I was not able to support and represent the company. To my shock(?) he proceeded to tell me that was not important. 

Needless to say, run away! They are great vacuums but you will have to replace it in about 10 years and after spending 3000.00 I would want it to last longer. I would also like it to be simpler to use. If you need to receive a 3 day training on how to use the vacuum that is ridiculous! 

*Side note- if you are worried about the bed bugs rest assured when you use a NORMAL vacuum every 6 months on it, it cuts down the amount that you actually have.
