Union Resource Guide Union Resource Guide This company asks staff to block phone numbers to prospective clients. Why? I smell Horse poo ! Eagan, Minnesota
I was instructed to block the phone number of the office from which I was selling from using #67* for each sale call made. I was instructed not to get into detail with prospective clients. I was also required to fax a documents which gave a different address to the one I was working from also blocking the fax number with #67*. There was also a different phone number for return calls applicable for each area I contacted be it Duluth, the Twin Cities, St. Cloud or where ever, which when called rang through to the office I was based in.
I worked with this company for a short time based on the promise of a decent wage and commission for sales secured. The problem I had is as follows. I was generating sales but was not advised at the interview that commissions were based only on what payment the company received during a weekly cycle. I felt I was "misled" at the interview as I was told that commission was payable on sales in excess of $750.00 at the rate of 35%. For example, I might generate $1500.00 in sales, but would not be paid commission unless they got paid that amount in that week. In effect, I had no control over when they might be paid for any advertisement and thus would rarely be paid commission on that basis. I was paid just $9.00 per hour which is barely above a subsistence wage owing to the fact that I was only permitted to work a 29 hour week.
On parting with the company, I asked to be paid the outstanding commission for sales secured and was refused payment. I can only state that anyone I had dealt with on behalf of this company note that I can not accept responsibility for any sales whatsoever. As they say, let the buyer be aware.
