I am a local business investigator privately contracted to investigate work place treatment and unfair hiring practices. Through undercover employment, undercover client relations, email and phone contact, my two week investigation has found some startling information on a company that everyone should stay away from.
Spa buzz, located at 1029 17th Avenue South in nashville Tennessee, claims to be a spa marketing company.. It may be labeled as such but it is far from that! First and foremost, their "marketing" consists of going into busy offices in the nashville area, interupting business and presenting a sad sales pitch. The "sales" people are sloppily dressed and are not tacktful in the least. They are frequently asked to leave the premises by management of local businesses. They enter properties that clearly have "no soliciting" signs posted. Furthermore, they sell these "spa packages" that you have difficulties redeming at local spas and salons. [continued below]....
Secondly, they place advertisments all over the internet that they are hiring"sales team" members. They claim that this job pays $700 per week and promises travel reimbursement. This is false! They take these poor unsuspecting people, make them use their own car, walk into businesses with no training, and then do not pay them! They use them for transportation and do NOT pay them the $700 as promised. They are not reimbursed for their travel as promised. Furthermore, they refuse to give clear answers to applicants. They are not upfront and truthful with the tax and payscale information, thus forcing them to come in and use their car to take a "trial run" wasting the applicants time and money. When an applicant starts to ask questions, managers Jennifer Carrillo and Tera (unknown last name at this time) are swift to verbally abuse and threaten the applicant! This is illegal treatment!
In short, Spa Buzz Promotions is burning the candle at both ends. This company scams its clients as well as its employees. The turn over rate is off the charts and professionalism nonexistant. Spa buzz preys on the victims of the current economic situation, misleads people, absuses the fact that people are desperately searching for employment, and makes money off of others misfortunes.
Please stear clear of doing business or working for Spa Buzz Promotions. If you have been victimized by this company, please post here on ripoff.com or contact the Better Business Bureau.
Good luck and best wishes to the consumer!
