#1 General Comment

Burned by a Scentura Office?? Take Action!!

AUTHOR: Lionel Cosgrove - (USA)

What a typical brainwashed response from someone trying to defend the Scentura cult. What a pathetic and wasted effort. News flash lady! There are plenty of real jobs outside of food service and Scentura! That's what these cult members can't seem to understand.

Let me start off by saying that I never worked for any Scentura office, I'm in law school, I've already had a great career for years. You see I did it the hard way unlike Michelle and other cult members. I started out in troubleshooting with Comcast (AT&T Broadband at the time) before college. While in college I did direct sales for Primerica and Vector during my summer breaks. After college I went into Human Resources for a small medical provider of home healthcare and in two years I moved my way up to VP of the department. Three years ago I accepted an offer to become CEO of a small company that specializes in adult education. One year ago I enrolled part-time in Law School. I've had several people tell me first hand about the unethical business practices these Scentura cult leaders engage in.

Did I make as much as these scentura cult leaders claim

to make while moving my way up? No. But I did it honestly, without scamming people and I am now making 6 figures and I know a thing or two about running a business.

You see I provide my employees with benefits including health insurance, dental, vision, 401k, disability and life insurance upon hire, Scentura provides none.

I pay all my employees for the hours they work, plus time and half for anything over 40 hours per week, plus bonuses for bringing in new business. Scentura pays only commission.

When we're looking for sales people we advertise for sales people, not managers. Have good sales people been promoted? You bet. But we also have an Accounting department, a Human Resources department, a PR department an IT department plus all our teachers and case managers. I personally would prefer hiring people with experience in their respective fields where as Scentura will bring on any idiot off the street as long as they're easily brainwashed or plain just greedy.

We have a website, an established customer base, all of our sales people are comped for all the miles they drive plus expenses they incur and all my employees have business cards which the I pay for, even the non sales staff. That's pretty much standard at every company nowadays. Accept for maybe food service and retail which Scentura people seem to think is the only other option out there. They probably failed at that and couldn't get hired anywhere else so they got bitter and are now taking it out anger out on fresh college grads. (aka pay dirt).



If YOU have been burned by a Scentura distributor you can take some action against them. Will it take the whole company down? No. Will it work against one office? It can and it has. Will we take down every office? Probably not. Can you get them out of your town? Well that depends on you. 

TAKING ACTION AND GETTING AN OFFICE SHUT DOWN!

The life-blood of these offices is the classified ads. If their classifieds are no longer allowed in the newspapers the distributor will not be able to place their ads and the pyramid will collapse. They will be forced to close down shop and move to an area where the local papers have yet to catch on. The

first

thing you have to do is write a letter or email to the newspaper classifieds as well as websites where these ads are placed. Be sure to keep it professional. If you live in a large metropolitan area this could take a lot of work so be patient and stick with it. Read other newspapers classifieds and search other job sites to find more of these ads and send letters/emails to them.


Before

sending the letter it is important to include;


If the letter doesnt work, send another more stern letter. Then send letters to other news sources warning them of the misleading ads. This way they wont be able to advertise elsewhere as a back up plan.

Send

multiple letters or emails if you have to.
You

can find some sample letters in the thread below. They were posted by JD back in 2005. Just know the letters are a bit dated so be sure to make them as professional and up-to-date as possible. There are tons

of websites that can give advice on writing good professional letters.

#2 UPDATE Employee

BIG UPS TO EVAN/LIZ/RICH

AUTHOR: mikeyrocks21 - (United States of America)

My name is Michelle and I am an owner within this company. I didn't necessarily go through Evan/Liz's training program but my business partner, Farzad, did.

A lot of people out there just have a job mentality and just want instant gratification. I went through Richard Greenley's training program in Burlingame and it's pretty much the same structure. You go through a training program(which if you were paying attention, is designed to make you quit) and once you're done, you get open into your own branch locations. Yes, it's hard, but if success was that easy, wouldn't everyone be living in the nice homes and driving the nice cars.

I am a 22 year old college drop out(and I'm not going to sit here and say that school is bad) and I'm currently running one of the top rookie offices in the company and I live life much more better than i did before. You have to understand that not everyone is meant to do this business, and it's ok. We need people to have "real" jobs because I would honestly be pissed if i had to not only order my food, but also cook it.


Good luck and best wishes!!
