First of all just let me say that I am a former employee of Simplicity brides or simplicity gourmet,I worked there last year,I started in November and they closed our offices in January! I found the ad on craigslist and called the phone number in the ad, a man named Kai (manager) answered and quickly scheduled an interview for me,when I arrived in golden valley for the interview I met Kai and his boss Liz from TN. They hired me on the spot which I thought was a little strange but I did not ask any questions because christmas was coming up and I have a nine year old.
So I showed up for an "orientation" where I was basically fed a script once I proved that I could read all of the lies then I contiuned my training watching others who were doing the same thing to make a long story short, I called up brides and told them that they won a accomadations package for 2 to cancun or puerto vallarta or wherever (we were told not to say vacation) eight days and seven nights. The bride and her future hubby had to come to a local hotel and sit through a presentation then they would recieve there certificate for the package! all I know is that this was the most unprofessional place I have ever had the dis-pleasure of working for simply because they closed our offices down without any notice at all!!
To date I still have not heard from simplicty about my job there and I WAS PROMOTED TO A TEAM LEAD!!.The day they closed down I worked my usual 9-3 shift and walked to the bus stop with some co-workers,not even ten minutes later 10-12 co-workers showed up at the bus stop and said that our jobs were no more! just like that! I could only imagine what consumers of this company could be going thru because I actually worked for these SUCKA'S!!!!
Oh I almost forgot the best part about working there, ex-felons still living in a halfway house worked right along side of us and I am talking about sex offenders and the whole nine! And there was more then one fight and or shouting match that involved the managers (Liz and Kai).
