REGISTER TAPES UNLIMITED, R.T.U.I. -National Media, Headquarters, Houston Texas, President Edward Dendsley  Dawn Weaver in Maryland Office

REGISTER TAPES UNLIMITED is currently being sued in Greenbelt, Md, Grayson Vs. Register Tapes Unlimited for the following:
REGISTER TAPES UNLIMITED hired employees and called them Independent Contractors and made them report into the office in Columbia every day Mon thru Friday from 8:30 A.M. till  5:00 P.M. and hired "appointment setters" who were not paid any salary, even though having to report actually made them employees.  
R.T.U.I.  did this to avoid paying taxes on employees as well as to avoid paying minimum wage for this type of job which they currently do because of the impending lawsuit, Grayson Va. Register Tapes Unlimited.  This helped them to avoid paying large amounts of employee witholding taxes, which is fraud and a criminal activity and to avoid paying any salary.
In the rare cases where an appointment setter to book an appointment that resulted in a sale, R.T.U.I. did their best to not pay any commission due to the appointment setter and if they pay commission, did so on a reduced amount, not the amount agreed upon and delayed paying any commissions due the sales reps.
There were questionable hiring practices, interview process involved cattle call like process with basically hiring anybody that could fog a mirror.
Even though they say they do a criminal background check on employees and advertisers, this is also a lie.  Numerous instances where both employers who were convicted felons were still hired or able to place ads on their tapes.
The feedback from the advertisers was that even though promised, they often did not see a proof of their ad so it was published incorrectly and that it was not always run as per the contract because R.T.U.I. said that the store ran out of tapes, even though it is R.T.U.I.'S legal obligation to make sure that the store doesn't run out of tapes.  When advertisers wanted to stop their ads because:
THE ADS ON R.T.U.I.'S tapes do not work Advertisers loose money because the cost of $250.00 per run does not even begin to recoup their cost in terms of new customers brought in.
Part of this is because in addition to the ads not always being run on the tapes, people prefer to use ads delivered to them by Val Pak, Money Mailer, Coupon Clipper, etc. and with Internet, most people are simply download ads from the internet.
BOTTOM LINE - Would be job seekers - Stay away from this company at all costs
ADVERTISERS - Stay away from this company, you will be ripped off and not ever get your money back.
