This company from the web sites seems like a wonderful opportunity, a stable at home job. The pay is not as they make it seem. you can easily make 200-300 a paycheck, more can be hard to come by. you wont be paid any hourly until 2 weeks of working if you can set 14 appts in ten days, the training is awful its 1 hour they dont explain anything its like the blind leading the blind. the pay is 7.55 an hour, they dont want to pay you your hourly at all. Thats a problem alot of employees have faced. you will wind up working 40 hrs a week and get paid for 15. The leads you are calling on have already been called. They are unable to pay any employees, the checks come 1-2 weeks late. O and dont expect any notice on a late check either until pay day. Then everyone will act as if they just found out. The turn over rate is awful, people quit left and right. They have about 5 stable employees. They just let everyone know they have no money so they will hassle you and act as if you must bring in all the money or no one will be paid. Not worth it!!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Worked for one week with them.

AUTHOR: workerbee - (United States of America)

 I worked for them the first week in Feb 2010. I thought it was a great opportunity. Then they added up my hours. I went through training, they paid me for 9 hours at $7.55. Then I made one appointment, I earned $12.00 plus $12.00 for a total of $24.00. So my total pay check which I have not received is $95.00. That is for a total of 25 phone calls an hour in a 40 hour work week. So I was making a grand total of $2.37 an hour.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Texas Law Requires Telereach to Pay Regularly

AUTHOR: bewarelawstudent - (USA)

For your information Texas enacted pay day laws in January 1990. The Texas Workforce Commission enforces them. You can contact your local office to file a complaint. If you are not a resident of Texas contact the Texas Workforce commission in Harris County where Telereach is located.

Basically the law says that employees must be paid at least twice a month, with as nearly as possible an equal number of days between them. The dates must be known to all employees. If an employer does not designate paydays, Texas Workforce Commission will designate the first and 15th of the month for t hem. Wages must be delivered to the employee at his regular place of work or mailed by registered mail to be received no later than payday.

The Commission may require an employer in violation to deposit a bond to guarantee the payment of payroll in accordance with the laws for a period of up to three years. The bond is quite high so it is in the employers interest to pay their payroll in accordance with this law. The employer can be closed down until such bond is secured if found to be in violation.

 It would be much easier for Telereach to pay it's employees per the law on regular dates. Some employers with cash flow issues will take out loans or the owner will forgo their pay until such time as the cash is available for their pay. Either way, the employees must be paid twice a month on regular pay dates that they are aware of. Even with mail, the employees must receive their check on the day of payday even if the employer must send it registered mail. I emailed Telereach as a courtesy to them, so they can come into compliance without the Texas Workforce Commission becoming involved. Perhaps someone can let us know if they came into compliance.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Did you find another at home job

AUTHOR: houstongirl - (USA)

I currently work for telereach and have had the same problem as of today 1/2 no check from the one I turned in on 12/11.

Did you find another job you could do from at home?  Prefer to work from my house.

Thanks
