Editor’s Note: The law protects and encourages Ripoff Report to make appropriate edits to Reports posted by third parties. Ripoff Report may use that editorial power to post findings from a court of law about the subject matter of Reports. In some cases, a Court may find that specific statements made by the author of a Ripoff Report are false and defamatory. When both sides of a dispute appear and contest the facts of a situation in court it is believed that the findings of the court are generally reliable and fair. Out of respect for the courts and the judicial process, Ripoff Report, upon request, may post that kind of finding with special prominence, and in some cases, may even redact the information specifically identified by the court as false from the original Report. In this instance, the Court Order received by Ripoff Report was specific enough regarding the statements made, and as such, the offending language has been (((REDACTED BASED ON FINDINGS VIA COURT ORDER))) by Ripoff Report.

I went to work for Marketing concepts owned by Pani Verma. I was told in the first interview that my base salary was $35,000 plus commissions. (My main concern with any position that I was offered, was knowing that there was a certain amount coming to me being that I was new to sales)
I was taken out on a "2nd round" interview after meeting with Pani Verma. I enjoyed my day on the field with the person that was chosen to take me out. With what was said in the first interview, and what I saw in the second, I knew I would be good at it, so i took the offer. I was selling office supplies for the company they represent, Quill office supply.. Quill is owned by Staple which is why people think Marketing Concepts or Team MC is a big and legit company.
As the weeks went by, I noticed that my paychecks were never above $200. At that point I asked Pani about the base salary that i was told about, he (the first of many times) finagled his way around the question, stated something I would like, and moved on to a new topic. [continued below]....
..... I had to drive my own vehicle everyday with people packed inside, and was not compensated for anything. I went on several "business trips" that I had to pay for gas, food and lodging. Pani gave us unrealistic goals to hit to be reimbursed 50% of our lodging. (which we never were reimbursed for)
When payday came, (if it was on time) there was always a line to talk to Pani because of how low the checks were. He would always print out some break out form that he made, and that showed that orders were cancelled or did not go thru. However, being that I knew some of the customers I sold, there was verification of the oder being received and paid for.
Quill is a campaign ran through a broker called Cydcor. However, when you run a campaign thru a broker you have a no compete clause, and can not run another campaign thru a different broker. Well in Pani's case that didn't apply? (((REDACTED BASED ON FINDINGS VIA COURT ORDER))) (give them props because under Pani that should be impossible or they had money saved) by taking on campaigns ran by broker Credico, telling them that it was theirs to take over. This never happened and Pani reaped the money that came from all outside campaign while Cydcor had no idea.
It gets better. Pani also has several employees that have been kicked off of the Quill campaign but they just call their orders in under former representatives names and get paid..isn't that illegal? Won't the former employees have the tax liability?
(((REDACTED BASED ON FINDINGS VIA COURT ORDER))). (((REDACTED BASED ON FINDINGS VIA COURT ORDER))).
Well Cydcor found out and did an Audit on Pani by coming in and watching over his office for a day. Problem was is he was told about when they were coming. So all employees on different campaigns, or under an alias name, were to go on a "business trip" or work from home.
Lastly, Pani sent two of his best guys to New Jersey to run the Verizon Fios B2B campaign which is a huge hit up north. (an assistant manager ready to open, and a leading corporate trainer) They were promised an office, money, and a company. When nothing was turning out the way it was supposed (which was promised to be within a month) 3 months later questions were asked. When this was brought to his attention they were then fired and withheld from all 4 remaining paychecks, in addition to the assistant managers corp savings account... Illegal Right?
Some how Pani Verma thinks he is invisible, and can do whatever he likes. He is selfish and only out for himself. If you for some reason choose to work for him you will lose out on money you EARNED, while having to work 10+ hrs a day (when only half of that time you are actually able to make money.
I hope this information saves other from making a bad decision. DO NOT WORK FOR PANI VERMA
(((REDACTED BASED ON FINDINGS VIA COURT ORDER))). All of this is done with the full knowledge of his promoting owner Raf Diaz. Please stay clear of Team MC aka Marketing concepts and the owner
