Whatever you do steer clear of this corrupt company,  I worked for this company for 5 months and this company owned by this socio path John Greeley takes orders for equipment he doesn't even have he has orders pending for over a year which he took peoples money for.  When the customers call to see where their equipment is the Office manager and the sales people are told to lie to these people.  He then charges a 20% restoclking fee on cancelations for equipment he doesn't even have.

This place has had a number of complaints with rip off report and the BBB for the same thing.  He treats his employees like animals texting them at 2am berating them chastising them at every turn.  And when you want to quit he tries to claim you are stealing so he can strong arm you and not pay you what you are owed.  I left and was due 2 weeks salary plus commissions from them I have emails stating that my check would be ready for pick up at 4:30 that next Friday. I have v2 small children and work paycheck to paycheck and this man knew that.  When I went to pick up my check they slammed the door in my face and told me there was no check for me.

When I told them I had to feed my kids he and his attorney told me I should've thought about that before I quit.  I have met some pretty bad people over the course of my Life.  But this John Greeley takes the cake he is a sociopath who doesn't care about his employees or his customers He is a disgrace to the industry and owes so much money to his vendors people won't even do business with him.  He left his facility in Bethpage because he was a year behind on rent he now owes his new landlord 3 months rent and he has only been there 6 months.  His ONE truck was up for reposession.

The NYS Dept. of labor said there has been 5 similar complaints against him for non payment of salaries plus commission's since 2011.  I advise ANYBODy that is considering doing business with this man to steer clear.  You will NEVER see your equipment and if you do it won't be in the order or condition you bought it for.  This man should be put out of business.  The business is not even in his name anymore because he is such a menace to the industry. 

I can go on and on about what this place is about.  His one sales guy left is Andy Serrano and is a crook in his own right as he did 8 years in prison.  After he sells a client he dissapears and never deals with them again.  He is the supposed manager of operations there but couldn't manage his way out of a paper bag.

I know Mr. Greeley and or his staff including Denise and Dawne will see this post as they monitor the BBB and ripoff report on a regular basis.  ( which speaks volumes)  Because if you were doing the right thing for people there would be no need to search such harmful sites.

Hi John...Good Luck doing business anymore

#1 UPDATE Employee

RE: "UPDATE Employee ..inside information "

AUTHOR: fitnessplus.com - ()

Due to the distinct nature and content of this post it is clear that a specific disgruntled former employee continues to make false statements, claims and disparaging remarks in an attempt to hurt the business and/or others. A court order has been granted and issued to at least two parties to cease this behavior. (A copy of the Order can be provided to inquiring parties) 

As an employee of Fitness Equipment Depot WW (for several years) I will state that I am not treated as an animal, berated by the owners nor have I ever experienced the scenarios mentioned in the original report.

I have been instructed to monitor any/all customer issues pertaining to customer service for the business and do not find that to "speak volumes" of anything negative whatsoever.  In fact, the BBB requires that companies commit to customer service and resolving all open issues, complaints etc.  It's a valued part of business as all customer feedback negative or positive is important to a growing business. 

I see nothing in this report and particularly the closing paragraph other than an individual attempting deliberate harm on others (The lies contained within have been forwarded to the appropriate parties to become part of the pending court case since there are statements contradictive of his own sworn Affidavit presented to the Supreme Court Judge)
