This woman hired me to do a job after a very lengthy interview and evaluation process. It was almost insulting, as I have several years of experience, but I needed the work.
She wanted me to compile a list of companies affiliated with party-planning. She wanted 10,000 names, addresses, phone numbers, emails, etc! I was then expected to call all of these people and pitch Ms. Annechino's services as an event planner. Then, after each call, the list had to be color-coded per Ms Annechino's specs, and a summary report had to be written up and turned in.
This project would have taken about 25 hours to do right. Terrie told me that I should have it all done in five hours, and that she would pay me $10 an hour. When I told her that the project was going to take longer, Terrie replied: "well, five hours is all that I have in the budget!"
Every time I disagreed with what Terrie said I would get the response: "I feel that you are attacking me!". [continued below]....
..... Finally, in frustration, I told her that I would do what I could in the five hour time frame, and that Terrie would get what I had.
Bottom line- I never got paid for my work. Terrie wanted the work handed in before she would pay me, and I told her: "No, you pay me first for the time I have put in with you". Terrie then told me that I had wasted a lot of her time. While all this was going on, I had been in touch with a friend who also had worked for Terrie for a few months. Terrie acted the same way- dragged her heels about paying for the last assignment, claimed that there WAS no assignment, finally after being confronted with proof, grudgingly paid the woman the sum of $30, and then fired her for daring to defy Terrie.
Terrie Annechino gets her victims from Guru. She violates Guru's terms of service by paying the people (who are lucky enough to get paid) directly, instead of through Guru's escrow. This leaves her victims without backup protection from Guru to ensure that they get paid.
If you are looking for a legitimate company who will pay you to provide telemarketing services from home, this is NOT the place! Even the picture of Terrie is fake- the REAL Terrie Annechino looks nothing like the slim woman pictured at the computer. Her previous employer, Nimlock Philadelphia, did not keep Terrie around for long, either.
In short, she's a nobody with a nothing "company". If you don't want to be ripped off, RUN!
