Swiss America Trading Corporation Craig Smith Dean Heskin and Company Employment Fraud and Commissions Theft Phoenix, Internet
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: I am a former employee of Swiss America
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Dean Heskin and Craig Smith are not Patriotic and they are not Christian. They are simply profiteers getting rich by ripping off their employees and their customers. Your reply is completely baseless.
*UPDATE Employee: Setting the Record Straight
They literally steal commissions from their own sales force. The entire sales force is predicated on favoring those with seniority, which is fine and something most companies do, but this company actually allows and encourages senior brokers at their firm to steal from junior brokers, which is unethical and disgusting when you consider that they promote themselves as a Christian company.
They do this by 1) transferring leads out of your name into only a senior brokers name 2) closing leads that were in your name and claiming they were duplicate leads 3) changing the phone number on leads so you think you are getting a wrong number and then closing the lead behind your back 4) stalling the close of a lead if they think you might be quitting so they don't have to split a commission with you and worst of all 5) making you depend on them to close your leads and then starving you out (i.e. not closing your leads so you can't make any money) until you quit and then closing your leads so they get all the commission to yourself. These practices are not only tolerated at SwissAmerica, they are encouraged. And the senior brokers literally brag out loud about doing it. They literally ride you about working harder and harder and about all the benefits of hard work and then they steal those benefits from you. It's a disgusting place to work.
They don't pay any one an hourly rate to be there, they force you to work 10 hour days, they berate, and then to add insult to injury they steal what you do earn. Nobody wants to telemarket all day long only to have their commissions stolen from them, but that is exactly what is done at SwissAmerica. Don't let them do it to you. It's hard enough to make money at commission only jobs, it's nearly impossible when your firm is stealing from you. Don't waste a year or more of your life like I've seen dozens of men do. Your time is valuable. Your family is depending on you and all Craig Smith and Dean Heskin want you to do is telemarket for their closers FOR FREE.
I've always espoused the value of hard work, but If you value your time and your family as much as I do, don't let these thieves screw you over. Don't let them waste your time. Look for work elsewhere. I've never posted this sort of message before, but if posting this saves one person the trauma that Swiss Amerikkka put me and several of my associates through it will have been worth it.
(and if this is what they do to their employees just imagine what their doing to their clients)
