These Scam artists (and i use the word artists lightly) are a waist of your time,gas and printer paper.
Despite claims of 30-40 k per year, pay is really at best $300.00 after standing out in the cold harassing the public1 for 11 hours, and is 100% commission based pay, with no benefits, reimbursement for gas, no lunch break or reimbursement for lunch, and zero education/skill required.
On your second interview (which you will be offered if you have a heart beat), you are asked to sell crappy make-up off a folding picnic table to people out side a Macy's or Nordstoms and the like. Unless you wanna be that annoying person selling stale girl scout cookies out side a artisan bakery, don't waist your time!!
This company has changed its names many times to avoid rip-off reports like this & has no official info available about itself besides job listings (suspicious for a "marketing" firm); yet the job posting share the same characteristics, and the physical address is always the same (so far): 9387 Ruffin Ct, San Diego, CA 92123. Even the "owner's" Linkedin profile is bear, having only 1 connection that is private... ya, I did my research. They'll ask you to interview with Jason H., better know as Jason Hensgen. The only available info on this guy (I'm sure its a fake name and tittle) is this pathetic excuse for a Linkedin profile http://www.linkedin.com/pub/11/676/692.

I recommend reading the following to have a better idea of what to expect, especially the first one. Be informed and proceed with caution. You'll thank me.

truths beyond truths part two

AUTHOR: bill sonnerson - ()

Oh dear lord...

You want to know something really funny

And after jason hensgen gave me a very very nice compliment and thinking and thinking and sadly happens more than I care it to happen started to eat me alive on the original post

I'm am out right calling the origionator a lier.

Straight up mel

You are a lier!

Apparently you was raised rather messed up or did something in your life that caused some weird unheard of psycosis in which made you hate the world what the hey mel

Almost wants to make me see if you are real and know what you say

Google the address in the origional post!

Will not find new line products or LHIndustries

You will find child services and electronic and medical manufactures

Redline executives is a marketing/ retail consultant and would not logically place their business among a manufacturing district mixed with child services

Location is unwise

Their true address is 2667 camino del rio s san diego suite 311

When I called on Friday I was told to go to third floor

The address on the origional posting is a one story building and comes up as a child help services

Google it right and you get redline executives

Google the other address and nothing comes close!

Mel you are declared a lier!

I'm calling you out and you better fess up and tell the truth!

I don't like that people like you have it in their heads that its ok to lie and destroy based on no factual evidence

Come up with out landish claims

And find some remote nerve inside your head that you believe everything you are told or see on the web.

Mel as the good lord has taught us I pray in the name of jesus christ that you will step forth confess your sin and look deep inside your heart not your head that you will tell the truth and be honest, amen

I hope this record is the last we will here out of this unwarrented and unnessesary claim of scams ever in the world over.

By the way now able to pin point and call out the lie I fear no retaliations and my name is stanton william stephens and I am not afraid to prove lies bring it on

And I want more than jason to message me I want everyone who posted here besides me to message me.

truths beyond truths

AUTHOR: bill sonnerson - ()

Ok how about we straighten this mess out.

I am fortunate enough to have excape san diego and seen a greater world beyond any long standing californian ever will

First off yes it is 100% commission base and yes you will wear a suit and tie or dress suit if you are a lady

Next you are selling a product

The product name has changed over the years and it took me a second to realize huh

Really a true double take

Ok here is the deal

The lot of ya are wrong every single one of y'all

Redline executives is a legit company

You sell wax in a can

Now me personally I can say this when I worked at express tire on murphy canyon rd in san diego 92123

(Still there amazingly)

I encountered a sales man who set up a portable gazebo and sold a product demonstrated and was quite successful

The product name was top secret wax.

Depicted a hummer h2 on the lable with a yellow cap.

I bought two cans and used them and it was awesome can use that stuff in direct sunlight and still get a showroom shine that's no lie

Unfortunately I ended up leaving san diego and go on the east coast

My second encounter with this was unique

It was early mid spring 2012 in chesapeake va.

And I got confronted by a sales guy and was selling wax in a can

I told him sorry I don't have the money

But still demonstrated the product as I was fueling and was a little on the pressure side of salesmanship but not like a used car sales man.

There was a female presnt too

Both dressed in an attire not well known to the auto worlds especially for detailers

So here's the real deal

Those guys were really desperate and let me in on their business

Told me what they do and how they must go about it I said back well that sucks.

Told me they set up at gas stations and other venues of automotive services.

It occured that the person who sold me the top secret wax and these guys and then coming back to san diego desparite for a job saw an ad on craigslist and then I saw this report because I couldn't for the life of me remember the name and suite number to go to.

Look bottom line.

These guys are real they are true to their words

But as a person who has been in the positions I've been in its understandable to not disclose all business practices as the three employee postings have.

The first post over exaggerated a bit but is right... honestly I think that person has issues but nontheless is right.

The last post is accurate too but a bit over zelous over a simple swear word.

This company is nation wide.

And they sell a product that works

I have a final piece to the puzzle for the lot of y'all and that is if you are hesitant to work for these guys don't do it if you are unable to sell like a used car guy don't work for them. It takes quite a sales pitch to sell these cans or ther products and it has to be done in a way that appeals to the general crowd also to include your demographics the recreational activities and the product for which you are selling.

There is no shame that warrents these negative back lash postings of companies that they them selves learned how to build and grow. We live in such a world that back stabing an employer or negative talk of a shop or company just to get even come on folks if that's your attitudes towards companies you deserve what you got.

Now I am not saying there is no bad companies out there trust me on that one.

Ez lube was destroyed because of the shade tree practices they performed I left ez lube because I dislike dishonest practices... did I bad mouth them did I post negative comments did I hold a grudge. No.

Here in california is a government entity that over sees independent and dealer shops alike.

Its called the Bureau of automotive repairs

This government entity is a consumer watch dog who over sees complaints of shops in california and launches investigational probes into the complaint

Ez lube got shut down by the entity

I knew that someday a yell of t o p was going to go one customer too far.

And it did.

So with that said stop harassing these guys and just accept that if you feel ripped talk to the hrs that why they are there the human resources are there for you and to help solve conflicts and set resolutions in most aspects the HR has more power over the CEO

Sort of like the checks and balances clauses set forth in our constitution.

I am a man of reason

I think logically and I see right through the lies and decites.

If redline has any questions you can email me or look me up I got a facebook account.

If any sole out there thinks that I'm wrong speak up

I would love to hear why I am wrong

Redline executives deserves respect and if you can't handle the pressure or do the job don't destroy a company based on your lack of ability.

And the same goes to the employees

Don't badger the consumers in these reports it was unwise to say a swear word in a post but explain your actions rather than dodge and fight

Not cool

My opinion in the end is that everybody has a right to say what's on their mind but do it in a manner that is right and moral.

Good golly

Doing my research on this company and finding out that I myself am not the greatest at talking face to face and sell a product or fundraise for charities I am kindly declining my interview set on this upcoming Monday.

But I'm doint that based on who I am not what I read

And I'm responding because what I read ain't right.

I hope this ends this evil and destruction on both sides and a resolution is solved enough for people to think and do the right things. I really do hope that redline responds or looks me up because I would like to hear if that this is accurate and that it saves their reputation and that those who posted here before not redline fess up and be real honest with themselves and apologize for their mishalp in life.

I really hope this helps and I must go.

#3 Consumer Comment

THE REPORT IS TRUE

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

Firstly, seeing employees use curse words to respond to a complaint is simply not professional. 

Secondly, what this company does is they sell a 'Car Wax' that isn't sold by retailers, but relies solely on people sitting outside of gas stations, car shows, etc and selling this said product.  You have a better chance of sun burn than gaining a sale.

Thirdly, you're asked to go dressed in a business manner.  You will be the most overdressed individual of their staff. 

Fourthly, they had music blasting throughout their offices.  I don't recall a single 'professional' setting that does such a thing. 

Lastly, don't waste your time attending their three meetings they set you up with.

When the HR lady also serves as a receptionist, it raises eyes brows to those savvy enough that this is just a scam or a waste of time. 

If you don't believe me, go to the interview and you be the judge of it.

#4 UPDATE Employee

Redline Executives is an Oppurtunity

AUTHOR: CrystalJ1592 - (United States of America)

Lol, I mean let's face it Mel. Not everyone is a salesman. Not everyone can have a genuine conversation with any stranger w/o harassing them. Commission is not for everyone either.

Personally, all you have to do is talk to people. Speak to a 100 people a day, an average of 10 are buyers, and there's your paycheck.

Commission? Fuck yeah! It means, I can MAKE my own paycheck. Never have to promise myself to $10-15/hr again. Because I'm worth way more than that. Simple business model:If I work harder, I get paid higher. If I don't, etc. Because if I work my a**off for $10/hr at another job, and the lazy asshole next to me has the same salary as I, then how is that ethical?

If Redline Executives is a scam, than how has it been continuously expanding and increasing in sales over the past 32 years? We have promoted a total of 6 assistant managers in the first 5 months of this year. Redline Executives has been successful despite the economy, while places like General Motors and Best Buy are laying off workers by the thousands. And working for General Motors would be considered a stable career...right?

Now tell me, what business does not rely on sales? Grocery stores, retail, insurance companies, even lawyers? The only difference is, we are a face-to-face retail company. Sales don't come with luck, they come with ability and skill to build impulse and find buyers. This only reinforces the fact that not everyone is sharp enough to take on such a simple task.

I find oppurtunity in this company because in the past 32 years of being in business, Redline Executives has used the same products, system to find buyers, system to teaching and training representatives, system to building and developing teams, qualifications for assistant management, and qualifications for location management. I know that if the person before me can do it, then so can I. Jason Hensgen has contributed 5 years to the business and undoubtedly makes a 6-figure income. How's that for stability?

REDLINE EXECUTIVES NOT A SCAM

AUTHOR: Angeleyes26 - (United States of America)

Redline Executives is not a scam. I have worked here nearly two years as an admin/HR. I love the company and working with Jason Hensgen. We at this company are very clear on the positions available, the pay structure and EXACTLY what is involved. We let the individuals know up front it is performance based and we do also let them know as well as show proof that everyone working within our company makes over $400 a week. I think its very silly to write a rip-off report because this company is NOT a rip-off by any means. Jason cares very much about his employees and the individuals around him. Its as simple as this if you work hard it pays off. There is NO selling anything door to door or selling makeup..We are in the sports and automotive industry and we make that very clear as well. So before you read silly rip-off reports do a little more research then mere hear say. People at this company are very legit and work very hard.

REDLINE EXECUTIVES?? NOT THE ONE I KNOW

AUTHOR: Henry - (United States of America)

I work for REDLINE EXECUTIVES and everything I have read on rip off reports about this

company is completely RIDICULOUS... Redline has NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THOSE OTHER COMPANIES LISTED IN THIS POST, OR THE OTHER POSTS LISTED. I have heard of cydcor / dsmax and a few of the other companies this person lists, but I don't know why they put Redline's name in the mix with those companies. Its not fair or even credible to tie Redline into it. These people have clearly

never worked at Redline or they would never have posted this. GO TO WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/REDLINEEXECUTIVES, and look at the people that work there... let me know if it looks like they don't like what they do for a living. Now I'm not saying those other companies arent shady to be honest I don't know, they may very well be. But what is mentioned in the title has nothing to do with Redline Executives. Everyone that works at Redline loves there job, the atmosphere, the management, their paychecks, and its one of the most motivated staff of people Ive ever met!

The reality is that everything that is mentioned in those posts has no relation and doesn't even slightly resemble what it is that we do at Redline.  It honestly looks like this person just spammed there resume' a million places and confused Redline for one of those other comapnies they spammed.  It doesn't even sound like he went to the interview cause what Redline does is SOOOO different than what is stated.  Once again im not saying, these posts aren't correct, I am just saying that Redline Executives isnt associated with what is being said here.



Let me start with some FACTS



- Redline IS NOT a door to door or business to business company.



- Redline DOES NOT sell any sort of make up or cosmetics products.



- Redline WILL NOT guarantee you 30-40k per year, you can earn it but they will

not guarantee it, it is performance based and the average person makes over

$400 / week... ASK TO SEE THERE PAYSTUB IF YOU GET A 2ND INTERVIEW... the proof

is in the paystub.



- Jason Hensgen is NOT a fake name, I've seen his ID and his PAYSTUB, this guy is soooo legit. He is so motivating, and so real with people... working for his company has literally taught me so much, this guy's a beast! don't take my word for it ask people that work there!



- We get paid every Friday with a real PAYCHECK with a PAYSTUB and taxes come out



- We have a $240 / Month Travel allowance so they reimburse us for gas to and from our events



- We do all our Promotional events at Sites that are paid rent, and set up weeks in advance (it's like working a trade show type of event)



- They will not offer you a 2nd interview if you are not a people person, uncomfortable dealing with the public, are socially awkward, prefer a desk job or office position, have a bad attitude, are super skeptical, or seem lazy. IF SEEMS LIKE YOUR NOT INTERESTED THEY WON"T CALL YOU BACK IN! (why would they waste their time, your clearly not going to do this anyway)



- You must pass a background check to work at Redline (No Felonies)



- The 2nd interview is ONE HOUR!! it IS NOT 8 hours or a full day. You meet a trainer at an event and there are 2 parts to it. Part 1 you observe for 30 mins, Part 2 you sit down for 30 mins and break down hours, pay, advancement, scheduling, and open it to any questions you have.



- The Opportunity to grow is based on QUALIFICATIONS. If you hit the qualifications you get promoted. (I've seen 3 promotions to Assistant management since i've started, and 2 promotions to Location Management in the last 5 months!) *RIVERSIDE *SAN BERNADINO



Let me leave on this, IF YOU LISTEN TO UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE, YOU WILL STAY UNEMPLOYED. I challenge anyone who is applying to Redline to go to the interview TRY YOUR HARDEST to get the job and be invited back. and work there for 2 weeks... if youre not picking it up or arent performing well and making good money then quit... the worst thing that happens is you end up making a few

hundred bucks and your back at your computer looking for jobs again... lets be honest for a second, does being unemployed pay very well?? And do most companies pay you for interviews? so is continuing to look for jobs paying your bills? so what do you really have to lose in giving it or any other job a shot if offered? Remember the only way to prove the system wrong is to do it 100% right. and don't just take my word for it, I am one of 40 employees lucky enough and talented enough to be and stay a part of Redline's team.



TO SAVE YOU SOME TIME THOUGH, DO NOT APPLY if you arent comfortable with people, are trying to do the least amount of work to make the most amount of money, arent comfortable being active, don't like having fun or dealing with people, or are only looking for an office job (*unless they specify office positions are open).



DO APPLY if you are the person who always outworks everyone at your current job but don't get rewarded for it.  DO APPLY if you are a stong communicator with a great attitude. DO APPLY if you like to have fun and meet new people.  DO APPLY if your open to learning something new and want guidance to help you find a new path.



I HOPE THIS HELPS CLEAR THINGS UP!!



*PLEASE IF YOU WROTE THAT POST TAKE REDLINE'S NAME OUT OF THE TITLE* (and Jason's)
