What does not work is a company that runs like this company does.


First, this company sucks in some new employees, usually ones who are desperate to find any job out there. The guy who talks to you (most likely Jeff Ivy) pretends to be your friend, kindly training you for four days, using your car and gas to show you how to knock on doors. Then he slaps you with a big orange vest, a black comcast hat, and says "have at it buddy, good luck."


It's your first day on your own, you walk around all nervous, hoping that you can meet the daily sales requirement made by Brad Reynolds- the boss.


However, a week into it, you realize that you haven't been paid your $200 training pay you were promised. Then you wonder where your badge is. So you ask Jeff Ivy, "Hey what happened to that training pay?" Jeff Ivy just smiles and says, "There was a glitch in the system, I'm sorry they haven't sent your money to you yet, I'll let Brad know right away." You trust him, after all he did hire you, and continue to sell comcast products.


About a month into the job, you're getting pretty good at making sales. Confidence and hope push you forward even though you're getting really low on money. It's tough to drive an hour and a half to Renton every day and then drive all over the countryside to sell Comcast. Expecially if you're running out of money. But Jeff keeps you going by telling you what a winner you are and how sorry he is about the "error that Rachel in the office made about your pay card".


Hooray! Two months in and you finally recieve you badge. May I mention this? It is illegal to sell any product door to door without being liscenced to do so. Then you recieve your pay card... What a relief.... that is until you try to take the money out of an ATM and realize your card has no money on it.


Angry and frustrated, you return home and pull out your pink contracts. It's time to spend three or four hours counting out how much money you should have been paid when you recieved your pay card. The compensation plan, that was never written out to you, just told to you, is in your head while you calculate. And then you find out how much money you are missing- over $4000 in two months!


You angrily call Brad, not Jeff, with the figures. And then he starts to tell you about "all the complaints" that have been made about you. He tells you that the system is backed up and they haven't calculated how much money to give you yet and you better fix those complaints or you are fired.


What do you do? Stick around and wait? Let him fire you? Now you're stuck playing Brad's game.


What did I do? I QUIT. Then I saved all of my contracts and the compensation plan that Jeff Ivy so kindly typed and signed for me. And I saved the confirmation numbers of all my sales that went through. An attourney and Small Claims Court is next.


I know of many employees, some that I even suggested for hire, that have been ruined by TeamWinmark. No don't mistake any contracting company for TeamWinmark. TeamWinmark is Located between Seattle and Arlington, Washington. Daniel's team is farthur north in the Marysville/Arlington area. Jeremy's is in Seattle/Renton area. Jeff Ivy has worked in Federal Way, Renton, Redmond, Snohomish, Everett, Seattle, and Marysville.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Teamwinmark really sucks!

AUTHOR: Shannon - (United States of America)

Any self-respecting person would avoid working for Teamwinmark, because they are very dishonest, very unprofessional and lie continually. They pass on their business expenses to the people that work for them and treat people very bad. They use language that is very degrading toward women and use vulgar language very frequently. It seems that most of the people that are desperate enough to work for them are either not able to get a job anywhere else, are dug addicts or have a criminal record. If you want to make more than below minimum wage and have any self-dignity, you would do yourself a favor by working for a different company!

#2 UPDATE Employee

Not a good company to work for

AUTHOR: Shannon - (United States of America)

This rebuttal was obviously written by an owner or manage in the company or someone paid to write it. I have seen so many people get screwed out of their money by Winmark, for one bogus reason or another. Once people leave the company, any money that is owed to them is rarely ever paid to them. The only people that make a decent income here are the owners and some of the managers. Most of the sales reps get screwed!

#3 UPDATE Employee

Yes, Teamwinmark is a ripoff

AUTHOR: Shannon - (United States of America)

I agree with the previous report that was filed, because I've seen many of the same things happen at Teamwinmark.  The managers use foul, vulgar  language and degrade women verbally. They take away money from their independent contractors for Winmark's expenses, such as $500 for a phony background check, the cost of Winmark's secretary, sales leads, which Winmark gets for free and used, worn out shirts, vests and hats.  They make demands on their independent contractors, as if they're employees, such as mandating that they attend useless unpaid meetings for several hours, way out of most people's way and wasting their time! I would advise anyone looking for work, to look for a better company, that actually pays well!  Winmark is not a good company!

Bogus Claim

AUTHOR: Shaji Das - (United States of America)

This is a bogus claim by some one who is lazy and didnt work and expect to get paid. I worked for this company for few months and there was never a problem getting paid for the work I have done.

Hey buddy grow up.. life is not easy and if you want to make money you gotta go out and work...........I got paid every penny and on time for what I delivered.

There are many sore losers who want to make money fast with no effort and that's not the way life is...
