If your unemployed and looking for a job DO NOT CONSIDER FIRE HOUSE PROMOTIONS! I was briefly employed at this company and have since known people there that have been employed and all I can say is if you want to be made into a personal slave, talked down to, treated like trash, cussed out and used to make money for the company while the owner and manager sit across the street at the bar during business hours and drink, and if your willing to work in an environment that allows employees to harass other workers, use profanity while people are trying to professionally work on the telephone, then this is the place for you! Never in my life have I worked for such a shady bunch of people in my life! The employees are supposed to be made into their little phone slaves to sell their products in an advertising sense over the telephone. Its not the products that are bad its how horrible these people treat their employees that is!

The employees are made to sit in that stupid dump for hours on end and sell Fire Safety Boards to businesses for the Fire Departments....if the fire departments or these businesses knew how bad the employees are treated at this place I doubt the place would even be in business. They never pay the wages they say they will pay you, the projects they give you go around and around and around the room and most of them are expired projects which is fraudulent in itself, they have managers that lie to these businesses on the phone to get deals, its such a sham! There are good people that go to this place to get jobs and are yelled at if they don't get a sale, their jobs are threatened, they are NEVER paid what they were promised, never receive a pay check stub so they can cover their butts on what they do pay you, and they are so unprofessional its ridiculous! So many times when I personally made phone calls while working there I just wanted to beg the business owner on the other end of the phone to please purchase an ad space on these boards because if you don't I am going to get fired and lose my job and will not be able to provide for my family, but I could not do that. I wanted to think this place would get better but from what I hear since leaving its gotten far worse! You have men there in management mistreating the women there, and using profanity in a place of business that is supposed to be a professional setting. On top of that they have people that smoke inside the building when smoking within 15 feet of a business in the State of IL is illegal, yet this business is promoting fire safety awareness and prevention, HA! There have even been fires that have broken out, outside the building from them smoking too close to the building.

All I can say is I wish only one thing, that the people employed there still that are decent people will finally get the pay and dignity they deserve and someone steps up and goes to the authorities and gets this place closed down! I would also like to let you know that most, not all of their managers have felonious criminal records, yet are in positions of management while the good employees, the honest hard working one's are there being treated like garbage! I hope something is done for the good people they have employed at that place and justice will come to them, they deserve it for the crap they have to put up with! I just wonder how their business in Florida runs, they pay to have these unprofessional managers to go to that location as well, do they treat them like crap there too, would be interesting to find out! Oh, FYI if your a criminal with a long felonious record apply there, your going to get hired instantly when the honest workers get fired for not making a sale!

FIREHOUSE PROMOTIONS TRUTH EXPOSED FINALLY ALL BUSINESSES READ ASAP!

AUTHOR: Past Employee - ()

I have read each and everyone these posts about Firehouse Promotions in Moline, IL and each and everything posted is the truth, that place is the biggest crock of BS and I have no clue how the heck its stayed in business!

I too used to work there and everything they said about that place is true and then some! The managers there do harass the workers there, I was also harassed and I would love to see if there is an attorney out there that would take a class action lawsuit case probono, it would have to be pro bono because you never made a decent wage at this place!

While working there I personally witnessed women having their breasts groped while they were unsuspecting on phone calls, the owner Syl Perino http://www.judici.com/courts/cases/case_search.jsp?court=IL081025J&sort=full_name&order=ASC&case_number=&litigant_name=Perino%2C+Syl&charge_text=, his wife Sara, Manager Gino Groom http://www.judici.com/courts/cases/case_search.jsp?court=IL081025J&sort=full_name&order=ASC&case_number=&litigant_name=Groom%2C+Gino&charge_text= and other people in position of authority there saw these things happening and did nothing and kept the perps doing these crimes! They also let one of the people they put in management, Ricky Rummels http://www.judici.com/courts/cases/case_search.jsp?court=IL081025J&sort=full_name&order=ASC&case_number=&litigant_name=Rummels%2C+Ricky&charge_text= verbally harass and stand over several female workers harassing them to the point they quit yet he is still employed at this company. (See links for their criminal history and these are the people your trusting with your credit cards!)

 

If you do not make a sale here you have to come to work anyway and work absolutely for free, you get nothing, and if you make sales your supposed to be getting a commission on every sale for $4,000 in sales your supposed to get a $1,000 commission check plus your regular pay of $10.00 an hour, that is a total lie your lucky to walk out of that place with $200 a week on your check!

Its also true that the owner Syl and the manager Gino will on a pay day sit at the bar across the street as the other informant wrote; and drink on the job while they leave these other people that harass their workers in charge, who I would also like to let the public know, that yes, most of the workers there are felons (see links),  this company is letting these people take customers credit card information on an unsecured line, oh yes, those lines are NOT secured, they are a basic line and anyone that calls from companies to complain to get their money back will be directed to a Michelle Neumann http://www.judici.com/courts/cases/case_search.jsp?court=IL081025J&sort=full_name&order=ASC&case_number=&litigant_name=Neumann%2C+Michelle&charge_text=

that will feed you her rehearsed lines about this company for her paycheck.

NEVER EVER DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!!!! AS YOU CAN SEE ITS A SCAM, YOU WILL NEVER BE REFUNDED AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENTS THAT THEY CLAIM THEY DO BUSINESS WITH ARE EITHER EXPIRED PEOPLE THEY HAVE WORKED WITH AT THESE FIRE DEPARTMENTS OR THEY COMPLETELY MADE THEM UP JUST SO THEY CAN FRAUDULENTLY USED THEIR NAME TO MAKE MONEY TO LINE THEIR OWN POCKETS NOT ONLY IN MOLINE, IL BUT THEIR OTHER LOCATION IN FLORIDA! TAKE IT FROM EVERYONE THAT HAS WORKED THERE AND LEFT BECAUSE OF THE MISTREATMENT, LIES AND THE GOOD WORKERS THAT LEFT BECAUSE THEY GOT TIRED AFTER THEY REALIZED THIS COMPANY MAKES THEIR WORKERS TOTALLY LIE TO MAKE MONEY FOR A COMPANY THAT SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS IN THE FIRST PLACE SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE TO CLOSE THIS PLACE DOWN AND AN ATTORNEY WITH A HEART NEEDS TO HELP ALL OF US THAT LEFT TO GET THE MONEY THIS COMPANY OWES US ONCE AND FOR ALL AND WE GIVEN COMPENSATION FOR BEING HARASSED BOTH VERBALLY AND SEXUALLY WHILE EMPLOYED AT THIS COMPANY!!!!
