When I started with the company I was all about it and all for it. They teach you to be enthusiastic, no matter what. They teach you to leave all your problems at the door. I became one of the most enthusiastic ppl that I have seen in that company. They tell you that even if you don't sell the redition bottles of perfume that you can be promoted though the pluses. These pluses include having an enthusiasm about what you do and getting the job done AT ANY COST! At first I noticed that ppl were excited about what they did and I was even more excited being around these ppl. As well I had a better attitude at home and became more organized then I have ever been.
My mom did not want me to do this, she felt that it was a rip-off but being as how the owners told me that our families would say such and that " They can teach you how to be a good person but they can't teach you how to make 52,000.00-130,000.00" so we shouldn't listen to what they have to say. The same was said about friends, boyfriends, husbands, etc... So, with my friends and family telling me that this is a big mistake I just listened to what the owners had said and ignored their request for me to quit. My boyfriend supported me for awhile until he saw what this company was doing to me.
I was going out in parking lots, down sidewalks, in businesses, in the projects, and everywhere pushing myself daily to sell sell sell this perfume and cologne. I was working 12-14 hour days and going home with absolutely nothing. I was pushing myself so hard because I believed by what the owners had told me that it could and would be done at any cost.
I have been with this company for 5-6 wks. I have probably stuck about 50.00 in my pocket and spent 200.00 in gas, put 1,600 miles on my car, had to get my car fixed, stressed myself out and my boyfriend because I couldn't pay bills and we were getting further behind, busting my ass everyday even to the point of ignoring my health and I had gone days without eating. I pushed myself to the extremes.
They never told us that we had a quota to meet but at the same time we were working off of commission only so if we wanted to make anything at all we have to go to extremes. NO MATTER THE COSTS RIGHT????!!!! whatever
I am still an assitant manager which is one up from being a new person. I have not been promoted and am making absolutely nothing. I had to get a second job just to put some actual $$ in my pocket, be able to pay bills, and not lose everything I have.
One day a girl that I really felt was great and was doing wonderful in the company and I went to MERCH (sell the perfume and cologne business to business and parking lot to parking lot) was running a car (so called our office where we manage ourselves and those FNP"S (friendly new people or F***ing New People they are sometimes called) and we had an FNP with us that we were supposed to be training. At the end of the day the girl I was with announced to me that she was told BY THE OWNERS to get rid of the new girl because she had missed a day due to her child and was behind. I was unaware of this until the end of the day and I was supposed to be running the car as well. The girl did FIRE the new girl which I did not feel was right due to her having to be out of work because of her child. I did nothing and said nothing. Let her FIRE her and went on with the day.
They teach you not to care about any of these ppl. They teach you that if you can't do this then you are a WEAK PIECE OF SHYT! What they don't tell you is that they are going to break you down and if you lose everything in the process SO WHAT!?
I am tired of being broke and watching everything slip out from underneath me. I am tired of going to work and being enthusiastic about watching others around me not have any $$, losing their friends and family-husbands and wives-etc... I am tired of watching others cry around me because they have tried their very best and broke themselves in the process and broke everyone around them that loves them. I'm tired of watching these teenagers and early 20 year olds being promised the American Dream and living the American Nightmare.
When I worked in the office I realized how much they lie.. The Ad states: general-mngr trainee CRAZY I need 13 people as crazy as I am to help me run my co. ASST. & MGR trainees No exp. nec. We train. Must like fun, $$$, & work w/ oppos. sex. Ask for Mary 781-2071
That ad in itself is bs! When you call in about this ad and I'm sorry to say that I have worked in the office and handled these calls. When you ask for Chuck or Mary you are actually asking for ppl that are not even in that office and I'm not even sure that they exsist. They have told us to tell all you people calling in about the ad to tell you that Chuck and or Mary is currently in a business meeting or currently out to lunch. Then you will be asked if you are calling about the ad in the paper and then we read off a phone script that is given to us. This phone script says Are you looking for full-time work? then you answer. then Are you working now? if you answer yes we are to ask you what exactly you do and if you say no we are to ask you what your last job was. If you do not answer what your last job was we are to tell you that this is not for you. If you tell us then we just go about the script We also ask if you have a problem dealing with the general public. Depending on your answer tells us to continue or not. If we do continue then we say "Well let us tell you what we are about. We are an manufactures rep for Atlanta Based company and we are looking for 13 - 15 candidates to train, to run, and to manage these locations. This is a management training position. Is that something that you are up for ? (and of course we keep it nice and enthusiastic) by your answer we continue to set you up an appointment for an interview We give you no time to ask questions and if you are smart enough to ask questions we have been told to answer "that we dont' have that information that we have been hired by a temp agency to answer phones and set up appointments for interviews. So in order for you to find out you would have to set up an appointment and talk with one of the branch managers."
So they start off by lying to you pretty much and training the other people that get the opportunity to work in the office to lie to you as well.
We have sheets of which we fill out with the ppl that works there names and how much they sell per day to keep track of it and all of those that wise up and quit before they lose everything get an arrow with WPOS next to it (weak piece of shyt).
Save yourself the trouble and heartache and watch out for these ads. I believe that you can make it in this company IF you are willing to lie to everyone, ignore your family and friends, lose everything and everyone around you. ALL to be brainwashed to believe that ONE DAY you'll live the American Dream.
