SEO Reputation Management at its best!

It's simple. This little scam job is one of the many branches of Smart Circle.

- You are told you are being hired to run your own promotions business. If you excel, you'll be "fast-tracked" to management. This never happens. You know those annoying people at Sam's Club that try and stop and talk to everyone who walks by to pitch them a product? That's what you'll be doing. The end.

- You are paid minimum wage, are not paid for OT and work ("office" and on-site) 50+ hours a week.

- You are not a salaried employee and you never will be. There are no benefits. If you do not work that day, you do not make any money. You also are under-compensated for gas and oh...you'll be driving 30+ miles in some cases (or more, depending where you live) to sit at a Sam's Club.

- There are maybe a dozen people that are staffed at a time, most of whom are in their mid-20s or younger (a. [continued below]....

.....k.a. inexperienced).

- There is no drug testing. Ever. At least half of the staff at the time I was there would get high during their shift.

- The staff is ever-changing, as many quit once they realize they aren't making any money.

- Racism, sexism...you name it. It is all very prevalent, as the staff is young and out of touch with the real world. I cannot tell you how many times I heard "that's gay" at a meeting or was coached on why we should target Asians and not black people.

Basically, if you like cults and not earning nearly enough for the amount of time you put in, then you have found the right place. These people have morning "training" sessions six days a week (sometimes they shoot for seven) where they fill your head full of lies -- and you are required to write it all down. The moment you begin to question anything, you are replaced.

New Name in the STL area

AUTHOR: GFY - ()

Update:

Ace Promotions has changed names and is now being ran under the name Blue Feather Events Inc. The head of that snake is a girl named Connie Parker, who knows about as much as marketing as...well...nobody. Because she has done nothing but wait tables in her previous life.

Blue Feather Events Inc is located at:

11628 Old Ballas Rd, Suite 121
Creve Coeur, MO 63141

You can also check out this crock of a website at bluefeathereventsinc.com or look it/her up on Facebook (she copied and pasted Ace Promotions' ABOUT ME word-for-word - not shocking).
