U S Safety, Inc. Fire Safety Van Nuys, California
I too got a job at this company (US Safety Inc.) in Santa Clarita Ca. Then later went to the Van Nuys office. Once I got there I really started to see just how much of a scam they were pulling on everyone. They tell you that you go thru the training for 4 to 6 weeks then you get your own office of your choice. Well I was there for 4 months and never got an office. There is even a lady that works there that has been there for over a year and she's been promoted to Manager but she still to this day does not have an office yet. I asked why she didn't have one yet and I was told by the owner that she didn't think she was ready to handle running an office. So then why promote her if she isn't ready???
I sat in interviews while I was being trained and the owner told the new people that they would for sure get their own office by 6 weeks. She is out right lying to them. There is a $75 fee for doing a background check. Well they never did the background check on me. I asked for the report and they couldn't give it to me. Yet they will tell you that you can have a copy of the report. They never called my references at all. They didn't check nothing on your resume. I know this for sure because they never called on mine. Then they ask for a $99 refundable fee for the materials. But there is no refundable to it. People quit before they get to be a manager so there for you don't get the refund back. The refund is only when you get your own office. Which you will never get in the first place.
This company is such a joke. I wish I knew how I could report them and get the money they owe me for all the hours I worked for them. Yea, I worked hours and hours a week for months and I didn't get paid. You put in 930am to 5pm Monday thru Friday and two nights a week your there till 9pm for meetings. I gave it all I could. I really wanted this job to work out. But no matter how hard I tried. I still couldn't get anywhere ahead. They want you to be rude to the people you are interviewing. You can't smile or laugh with them during an interview. You have to give them bad looks while your looking at their resume and put them down because they have no experience. But then tell them it's ok because we don't want you to have any experience. That's why they say NO EXPERIENCE in the ad. They make you feel they are not going to hire you then at the end of putting you thru all the nervous points of an interview. They say that they like you and they are an honest person so you will give them a chance and give them the job.
This is the biggest joke I have ever seen. If I was interviewed by Lisa B when I was hired. I would have seen something then. But I was hired by a new employee that didn't know what she was doing. So I didn't see just how they really wanted you to treat these new people till I started working in the office with the owner. They do pry on people who are in desperate need of a job. This is so wrong taking their money when they have no job and can't afford it. Out of all the scams on the internet. I think this is the most biggest one. I'm just sorry I was suckered into giving them 4 months of my time. I spent so much gas going to work and back. That I am so broke right now I can't get by. Isn't it against the law for companies to have free labor? Is there any way I can make them pay for the hours I have worked for them?
