Lol. So yeah I got suckered. Man it was great at first. 52,000 a year. Management training for entry level employees. Fun!!!! Lots of money!!!! Huge opportunity!!!! Yup sounded great to take this opportunity. Man was i in for a surprise.

So I got my first interview. I was so excited it wasn't even funny. I dressed my best. Ready to start any time they wanted me to. I meen for real, who would turn down this opportunity? You would have to be nuts. Anyway there was me and two other people in the first interview. Strange right. Guess what, two of us got the job. You could tell these people anything and you got the job. Easy interview right? I was so excited.

I made it to the second interview. I got there and so did the other 25 people who "made it". There was music on when we came into the meeting room we had been escorted to. It was almost like going to the club. Sounds really professional right? Like something a manager would do at his office. [continued below]....
..... We were told to take notes and we took alot of them. It was made very clear that this was not a sales position. We were also told to wait till the end of the week to ask any questions.

We were told to call at certain times to see if we got the job. And of course we all did except about 4 of us. Apparently they lied on the background check. So its Monday. First day of work and very excited. We sat and took notes all day. Guess what, we were told that we would not be making sales with customers but we would be promoting cologne and perfume. Lol.

We were going to be those weird people that walk around all day trying to sell people cologne and perfume. We were never allowed to use the word sell though. We always had to refer to it as dropping or promoting. We were still excited at this point, or at least I was. I was told i would be paid daily to help with gas money and crap. Sounded awesome. I didnt have to wait that normal 2-3 weeks to get a check. Or so I thought. We were told that pay was not commission, but was based on hard you worked.

Wednesday came quickly and it was our first day out in the field. I didn't make and "drops" that day. I also didn't get paid a single freaking dollar. I was disappointed, but gave them benefit of the doubt.  I knew I had busted my a*s and had worked hard. On Thursday we went out again into the field and i made two "drops". I was excited!!! Wanna know a funny thing? We are supposed to tur in 16 dollars to the company on each "drop", and then we keep the left overs. Problem is you are so desperate to make a "drop" that you will sell one for as low as 20 dollars. That means I only get 4 dollars. 

Friday I was chosen for fun car. That is where you and some of the other employees go to places like Colorado Springs, Cheyenne Wyoming, Grand Junction and other places and you stay the weekend there and make "drops the entire weekend. Saturday night you stay in hotel/motel for about 40 dollars. I got stuck with 4 other guys. One of them was a new manager/office owner. This guy was supposed to teach me stuff and show me some tricks on how to get more "drops". Everyone did drugs all day and night. Yup i said drugs. Pot, snorting pills, black mamba spices and whatever else was done. Setting a great example for me. Training me to be a manager.

By this time I had only made 16 dollars after busting my a*s all week and after working about 120 hours. I pretty much knew I got ripped. What this company does is they make you all these offers and tell you bull s**t lies to get you in. Then they make money off you till you quit which in that case you are called a blowout. And blowouts are considered pieces of good for nothing sh*t as they called them. Yup this is supposed to be professional company training you to be a professional. Lol. I am more professional than any of these fools.

They attract people like thugs, gangsters, trailer trash, street rats, and pretty much any poor person like you and me and promise you big bucks if you stick with it. They want you to work 60-90 days and get paid nothing. Thats crazy right? Also over the 9 years that Chris(the manager of the Arvada office) has has had an office he has only opened 17 others. So lets figure he hires about 25 people once a week to train.  Lets say this happens only 50 weeks out of the year for 9 years. That meens Chris has hired 11,250 people approximately over the past 9 years. Why have only 17 of them actually opened an office and been successful? Because this opportunity is unrealistic.

So lets assume you are wanting to work for Onyx Wholesale. Ur excited and ready to make some serious cash. Your rent is 650 dollars a month. Electric is about 60. Gas is another 20. Plus you have a car so you drive to work every day and you drive around Denver Colorado all day trying to make "drops". So lets call that about 75 dollars a week in gas. You also have to eat so we can call that 50 dollars a week and thats food from the dollar store. Your necessary bills are about 855 dollars a month. Can you really afford sacrificing your entire life for a company that you dont even get paid by for three months. Hell no you cant.

I would only recommend this opportunity to those of you who actually have money already and ur bored and have nothing to do all day but walk around and "drop" bottles of cologne on people.  This is a scam for real. You will waste your time like i wasted mine. I made it through my first week and I was out. They will call me week and lazy. A blowout, and a good for nothing piece of sh*t. Yeah I served two years in the Army. I have been through it if you can name it. Homeless, had money, broke, stabbed, foster care, adopted and back to boys home and on my own by the time I was 14. I been there and been through more bull sh*t than any of those f***ing liars they call managers. Managers that look like skinheads. Managers that run a company that could be considered a church of Scientology.

I know more about sacrifice than half the people that even apply for this opportunity. So f*ck you Chris and ur cute Iris but we all know your a coke head. Ive heard some s**t from a guy that still works there that I was not asked to repeat. Just letting you know that I know about that. Yall are all fake a** mother f**kers that dont know the first f**king thing about life other than how to rip people off and how to take their money. I said it. I sure did. Its all a lie. And im sure glad i didn't waste another week(two weeks in hours) of my time trying to do something only 17 people from your company have been able to do over the past 9 years. Glad ur successful and happy, but ur really screwing up alot of people lives in the process. That is selfish, but i suppose thats what your job is so who cares.

My Story

AUTHOR: JHyde400 - (United States of America)

I answered the ad, and at first I was a bit skeptical: Looking for entry level management positions, no experience necessary, will train. I picked up the phone and was surprised that the receptionist booked me for an interview without much of a fight. Normally Id have to twist a receptionist arm to get me an interview, talk to human resources, etc. 

I have to admit, I wasnt sure if this was for me. The business model was unorthodox, but something told me to take a chance. Obviously what I was doing before wasnt getting the results that I wanted - time to make a change. 

They were going to train me how to run my own business from all aspects, from the marketing of their product, to the administrative and accounting work. What they needed from me were some basic traits: a strong work ethic, able to push myself, and humility. 

The business, while run a little differently, offers the benefits of owning your own business without many of the pitfalls, such as the need for direct capital investment. The people I work with are genuinely excited about where they're going, instead of dreading the next day. 

Youll still have to work hard no matter what, and be willing to accept that the path to true success is one that may seem odd, but the growth potential is unlimited.
