Firehouse Promotions Moline, Illinois The owner and managers Fire House Promotions under pays its employees and treats them like trash! Moline Illinois
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!
