Absolutely, positively, do not waste your time with this company. I thought I had reached a sufficient age to be done with highly unscrupulous people like this, but perhaps it happened so I can let others know.
Chris Westphal is a liar, a manipulator, and a modern day slave labor quack. He'd walk his own mother to the gas chamber if he thought there was a buck in it for him.
I first became familiar with Onyx Wholesale through an ad in the Denver Post. it read, "RECEPTIONIST. Fun and fast-paced. Use admin. skills to advance to management. No exp nec. Start now. 303-940-3961" and another, "CUSTOMER SERVICE. Must enjoy $$$! Music and FUN! 18-25 guys/gals needed!!! No exp nes. Call 303-940-3580"
I dialed the first number and was answered by a young lady who said, "It's just another great day at ONYX! How can I direct your call?"
OK, let's stop right there for a moment. [continued below]....
After calling back yet again, George told me that the receptionist position was only one position they were hiring for, and would I be interested in a management position for their company. Of course, I said. I was instructed to come down for an interview at two that afternoon. I showed up at their cheesy-assed office located at 5783 Sheriden Blvd, and was met by the most un-professional office staff I have ever experienced in my life. Loud blarring hip-hop music bounced off the walls, and a scantilly clad young lady seated behind a desk chattered noisily on the phone and routinely hung up on people. Red flag number three.
After signing in and taking a seat, the receptionist then began to cheerfully grill me on topics like what I did this last weekend and how do I like to have fun. She talked and smiled like she was jacked on cocaine. Completely inappropriate. Who the hell was she to be asking any questions? I just burried myself in a magazine and waited. While I sat there, I heard numerous cheering and screaming fits comming from a room just across the wall, which made myself and others waiting in the lobby give each other strange looks. What the hell was that?, we all seemed to be saying to each other.
I was then taken to another room, along with two women, to do a 'group' interview with Chris Westphal. Again, I found this totally inappropriate. As the interview was conducted, we were also monitored by two men seated on a couch in the back of the room, who did not speak and took notes on everything we said. Their presence was ominous and uncomfortable. Chris Westphal himself is an odd looking fellow. He is charismatic in speech but sports two large circular stones mounted in his ear lobes, giving him a cartoonish and silly look that speaks of anything that could be considered business-like. A white boy raised in rural Africa. Big red flag number four. I was asked questions like, 'how much money would you like to make?' Duh, I dunno, Chris... How about A LOT? I was excused and told to call back the next day to see if I qualified for a second interview. I called back as instructed and gleefully told by the same idiot receptionist, 'CONGRADULATIONS ROGER! YOU HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR A SECOND INTERVIEW!!!' Red flag number five.
I returned the following Wednesday in a suit and tie and a notebook, as advised by the little miss demon o' cheerfulness. As I waited in the lobby with others, she again assualted me with the same questions as before. I wanted to yell something like, 'I was just here the other f****** day you stupid b****!' but remained silent. About 25 of us were then escourted into the next room, where the real fun began.
I'll give Chris Westphal this much: he is a showman. If he ever cared to turn legitimate, he could have a great career as a stand up comic. But Chris isn't interested in anything legitimate. That would take too much time and demands on his precious resources.
We were all hurded into the next room, and again, we were greeted by loud hip-hop blarring on a boom-box in the back. We were forced to sit there for ten whole minutes listening to this garbage until King Chris decided to enter. Chris bounced off the walls. Chris told jokes. Chris spoke in a machine-gun fashion with a horse and scaley voice that suggested he'd been at this all day and night. His presentation lasted two hours, with no break for us mortals. After the first hour and a half, we were allowed to stand up for ten seconds to stretch our legs. That was it. Nothing more. He gave us a ton of information about his 'training program', but no real specifics on what that entailed. I could go on and on about his non-commital statements and half-truths, but the bottom line is this: Chris wants you to march around town armed with a card-board box of cheap-assed knock off perfumes, selling door-to-door, till you drop. He hasn't opened any 'new stores' in any new cities or hired managers for those 'new stores' not one time, ever. He wants to steal your time to ingratiate himself with his cars and his houses and the yo-yo's in his ears. That is all.
And I include a small report on Chris's assitant 'manager', Iris. Not much to say about Iris, except she can barely hide the reasonable speculation she's hopped up on coke just like her soul-sister on the front desk. Red flag number six.
Avoid this company. Avoid it like the plauge.
I have a tape recording of Chris's opening speech, performed durring the second interview, in which he details, in his own voice, what his 'company' promises. If anyone would like a copy of it for legal purposes, please contact me at my personal P.O. Box 361, Central City, CO, 80427
Oh, and Chris? Hi there, good buddy! I know you are going to read this at some point, so let's get it straight: It's over. I believe you owe it to yourself and the people you have hurt in the past a serious reflection on how you do business and what kind of a human being you are. I have filed this report with NUMEROUS agencies, legal and non-legal, just in case of any retaliation that occures to me or my family.
