Pinnacle Security Longhorn Protection etx Pinnacle Uses Deceptive Tactics to recruit employees and then rips them off , Internet
So until February of last year I had been unemployed since I had gotten my associates degree at the end of 2009. I was searching craigslist and found an ad that pretty much said that their was no experience required and entry level alarm technicians could make 10-15k in just 5 months. So being a broke college kid I made the stupidest decision in my life.
Once I completed training which was 90%online I asked if I could get some on the job training before I was sent wherever. (also must be willing to re-locate) The person who recruited me said that their was no time and that i would get training when I got to my "area". The next week or so I wass paid 200 dollars and told i would be going to liberal kansas which is where everything starts to sink in. After only 2 weeks I was told because of my lack of experince they were sending me back down to the dallas office. I was supposed to get around 600 (300 in travel which was pormised by my manager as well as around 300 worth of installs) I got nothing and was forced to ask family for money so that I could get home.
When I got back a found out that my place was only a few minutes between wherer we were selling/installing and the office where we worked out of so I just moved back home. For potential employees I did this because if you read the fine print you have to complete a certain amount of installs before the rent is free so it aint free.
Long story short we had 2 months where I made no money because the reps did not sell one system and we get paid per piece. So long story short THEY LIED AND MY DEBT IS STILL GETTING WORSE BECAUSE OF THAT JOB AND THE JOB MARKET IN DALLAS STILL SUCKS. More In debt than I was even close to before I started with them.
We had really nice and reputable reps that I worked with but as far as them and us technicians go pinnacle does not give two craps about its customers or its employees and uses deceptive tactics to both recruit you the customers and us the broke college kids.
