I started working at Instinct because I was a recent college grad and the pickings were slim. Caleb Simms, the man who "owns" the company sat me down and promised me 700 dollars a week gaurenteed. So I decided to give it a shot.

Utter b*******, they make you sneak around businesses and try and sell makeup to people without getting caught in the store. If you get caught you sneak back in and try and sell to the customers again. None of the owners have cars (funny huh)? So they make you drive if you have a car and they make you drive up to 200 miles a day and never give you gas money.

Oh and guess what you start at 730 and if you have a car the bosses force you to give them a ride home, once again with no gas money. So any profit you make goes right into your tank. 

By the way I hope you like working from 730am to 10pm, and only getting one day a week off. They treat you like utter crap if your not part of the inner circle, luckily I was so they were nice to me but still tried to skim money from me and take has money from me, only Caleb and another girl named Sarah did that though.

All these guys claim to be making 1500 bucks a week yet they can't give you has money or afford a car, so they run yours into the ground. I quit today after an hour long conversation to get the money that was promised but only after I threatened to report him to the labor board and the IRS, then he magically had the money to give me like he promised.

Please stay away from these people they are not good people whatsoever, in the inner circle they call the regular guys "ants" because they do all the work and can squish them at any second.

They train you to sell to minorities because they are an easier sell, especially Hispanics. It's disgusting. Oh and they claim to only do business to business selling they train you to sell on the street to everyone, even though that's illegal solicitation, you always have to watch for cops because they really don't have a business to business license. 

Did I mention that they have changed the company name 6 times during the past 2 years, if that doesn't give proof enough then there you go. Also one of my "trainers" stole my Xanax script from out of my car. She swore up and down it wasnt her but the next day a guy tells me he bought some Xanax off of this girl, my Xanax, same milligram and everything

S**** these people and Caleb for lying and don't fall into this trap, just a warning.

Wow, the crap that comes out your mouth.

AUTHOR: Erktheviking - ()

 

The amount of lies you just spewed out of your mouth are horrendous, you promised me a $700 cushion for my first week. Guess what you gave me 400 saying I had earned the rest out of commision. I had only made $110 dollars that first week.

 

Oh and by the Nick Rashidi and I both have recording of you asking us to target Mexicans, sneak back into stores and last but not least trying to find some decent cocaine in this town because you "love that s**t" I want the money that was owed to me and the co-pay for my prescription Xanax that my first trainer took, I think it was Sarah. We had to use my car so you dont have to use any gas and she took advantage when she asked for the keys to my car to grab more stuff. Once I dropped her off I found my pills gone, that co-pay of $186.35 is also expected to be paid back because Sarah was the only one in my car that day, thats whats called extremely suspicious. Hell I bet that a court ordered drug test would prove that she uses narcotics, not to sold mention methamphetamine while on the job. I went to you the next day to threaten to call the police but you tried to side track me with your bullshit. I have contacted my lawyer and he wants to go over every sales record I have with you, along with the employment contract (which you made sure I never signed even when I asked to).

What kills me is the day I got a better job offer you called me a traitor and tried to take the money back. I have contacted my attorney and as well as the police. Even though you are long gone from Colorado, at least so I heard, a subpeona will find you wherever you are. I heard you wanna start in New York. 

Call me anytime if you want to discuss this further, if you do not contact me within 48 hours I will send a supeona your way. Dont forget my dad is the cheif medical officer of Toledo hospital. You may have a lawyer but i promise with the reciepts I saved and your refusal to sign a contract even after asking. I will take your company. The recording of you asking to target Mexicans because their "stupid" and you asking poeple to get you cocaine will go viral.

Hope you call me Caleb

Have a great time, oh and what kind of company chages thier name so many times, to a judge or jury along with your tapes, my reciepts and 3 other members of your former staff testifying. It would be in your best interest to call

 

Sincerely, Eric Mills. My number is 419-913-7292,

My lawyers numbers are Schlageter Law Offices- 419-720-9340

I you do not contact me in the next 48 hours I will contact my attorneys, by the way did you know it's illegal to hire someone  full-time in Colorado without some form of contract. Just talked to my lawyers about that today.

p.s. Your buddy Nick Rashidi was in on this the whole time so he has way more recordings than I do, and they really bring out your true colors.

Another P.s. you have charges of Money Laundering, Running a Pyramid Scheme, not paying employes full amounts owed, asking employees to get you drugs, which I have multiple witnesses for and my lawyer and I are guessing that you destroyed most of my pay documents, most of those are felonies. I have a very decent job now and my Lawyers are on a $3,000 retainer. If you want the judge to make you pay for them too thats up to you.'

Like I said 48 hours or the next call with be from myself and my attorneys.

 

don't mess with someone who studied law for 4 years, let alone a family of Doctors and Lawyers. Lets make that 36 hours now with the evidence I have why Would I want to wait?

You have until Monday at 4.

Have a nice on Caleb, hope to hear from you soon. Also what the company name now?

I wish I could prove it.

AUTHOR: Erktheviking - ()

They always made me take my car because noone couls afford a car. It was like my second day on the job, I kept it in the dashboard. I realized the next morning that my whole script was gone but I talked to the police and I had my mom in the car later that day so they could not make an arrest or accusation because there was no way to tell. I asked for a drug test for both people but the only person who agreed was my mom. Trust me I would have sued the s**t out of this company and filed charges if I actually had proof

 

I wish

It would have been very easy to bust the person who stole your script. You should have called the different pharmacies until you found the one where it was filled and checked to see if anyone remembered who picked it up and whether the person was on CCTV. Next step: police involvement.

Just a heads up.

AUTHOR: Erktheviking - ()

Not all the people at this company are bad people, Nick rashidi was my team leader for awhile and was one of the nicest guys I had ever met, he would buy me dinner and was an all around good guy trying to work this job, along with another guy named Anthony who I worked with Who was a really nice guy. I should have been more specific that just because the company sucks that not everyone there are a********.

Just quit this place, everything this person said is true.

AUTHOR: Erktheviking - ()

I just wrote an article about me working at this place and it is a total and complete scam. Here just read my report, this person is telling the truth I promise you. 

Here is the link to my article, by the way Caleb changed the name of the company to Instinct Marketing now.

They changed they're name to Instinct marketing.

AUTHOR: Erktheviking - ()

I just quit working for Caleb Simms and Instinct marketing and I can promise that everything that is said here is true. Here is a link to my report on the new company called Instinct Marketing.

http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Instinct-Marketing/Centennial-Colorado-80112/Instinct-Marketing-Complete-scam-and-the-promised-pay-is-a-lie-Centennial-Colorado-1170549

they pretty much do the same thing just under a new company name. I also have video evidence of my claims if anyone wants to see it hit that link up.

stay away from these scammers.
