OK, I am now terrifeid....I was contacted in the same way as several of the people's comments have noted...I strangely recieved a call for a "Job Interview", and low & behold..I was "Hired"...I brought my boyfriend along with me to the first of many meetings we have been requested to attend,..as I had concerns (apparetnly they werew very well founded concerns after reading all of this!) It seems I was suckered in even further, as I dilegently expressed my strong work ethic of not wnating to screw over friends & family..they said "Oh no we don;t want you to do that" anyways I was given the same schpeel as everyone else and apprently I fell for it.. We went to meet them on thrusday of this week...where they surprised us with having our "Hiring contracts" in front of us within 10 minutes of our arrival..the 2 recruiters were young people like ourselves an seemed to be very honestly enjoying working for PFS..WE begrudginly signed on the dotted line & supplied the 199.00 fee through our credit card....we specifically asked about cancelling the contract & were told we had 190 days to cancel! although the one recuriters who told us was somewhat repremanded by the other, which told us he does not like giving possible recruites that option...then to further shock us and somewhat frighten us..he went on to explain that "you should not tell possible recruits we hold these meetings every week..as you want to make them feel special????" we found this very unnerving as why would you lie about recruiting if it is so ethical and such a great opportunity.. I thought "I would tell everyone it happens weekly so more people would have the opportunity to this great business! I have now spend 4 hours researching a company that phoned me for another "interview" - UCC TOTAL HOME...after what I read I am planning on calling them to advise I will not be going for an interview..I could never work for such an unethical company? My questions is..are all the people complaining..compkaining about the products PFS offers...they looked good to me? (maybe I am jsut a sucker!) I thought I would be mainly focusing on selling & helping families..but it is seeming that PFS is more focused on recruiting - which I have no interest in doing? I am very scared now that I have read this many (lots!!) of complaints posted...I am thinking of not attending the "seminar" on saturday and cancelling the payments? what is everyones thoughts? Both my boyfriend told PFS right away that we were not into screwing our friends & famlize and that being the end of our "Great" career with them..there responce"who would you want tohelp most with this information..family ..right?" Now that I have read all of these posts it seems that it really is corigrafted lingo..they just recently told us..that we would have to learn the "schpeel" so that we could use it to customers & prospecitve recruits...Have we been take in... Why would PFS even except us after we told them we would nt scre over our friends and familize..is it really just for our $199.00??? Please give me some advice as I am not familiar with pyramid scams, but it is starting to look , like jsut that...MLM or not...they both sound the same to my uneducated ass! I think I will just go back to applying for secretarial jobs, and take a min. wage job a staples until a legitmate businne sopportuniy comes our way!! Please help...I really do not want to get involved with a crummy business....I really thought I was going to be able to "help get familize out of debt"..it appears I would only be taking them for $199.00 like they have done to us!! DO you think if I call tomorrow morning I will be able to cancel..or is it really going to be an uphill battle as so many have stated!? Looking for advice from ethical people...and this person who has a website taht "google voted #1 - what is it...and what do you know about Primerica..you seem to know allot and what every you have to say i would love to hear"! Help 2 scared people..who were not mabye in the best emotional state to be able to stand up to the big corporate sales pitch..geez weez I almost ook a job with UCC/Directbuy..and I am running like hell away from that one!" HELP! HELP! HELP! Julie & Marty Kitchener, Ontario
