I guess I'm another victim of their elaborate scam!!! I went to work for Student Relations despite comments I had seen on this site - shame on me!!! I addressed these issues with both my recruiter, Craig Mawson as well as the "brains" of the operation, Lousi Victor. I worked as an independent contractor selling ad spots on the Student Folders and Sports Calendars that they "distrubute" at high schools, colleges, & libraries accross the country. During the 2 1/2 months that I worked for them I expressed issues about distribution quantities and distribtuion points which were inconsistent with what I was trained to tell the merchants who were buying the ads. I always got the brush off and told not to worry about it - just keep selling. They would offer more "bonus money" I guess to further compromise my integrity. I was mysteriously "penalized" $100 for reasons still not known! The money was returned a couple of weeks later with still no explanatiuon as to why it was illegally taken in the 1st place. I decided on 10/28/08 to quit this "job" and sent them a very professional notice to this effect. It is now 12/29/08 and I'm still trying to get the commissions owed to me. Like the other posters here I've gotten an incredible runaround and a series of lies - and yet no $$$$$! I've also spoken with several dissatisfied merchants as well. In my case it's not a lot of money - it's all principle. During my phone conversation today with Mr. Victor today the name calling started - I'm a "Schmuck" for wanting what's owed to me??? As a 30 year professional this the WORST company I've ever encountered. BEWARE EVERYONE - YOU'RE NEXT!!! Legal action is next...
