Dave Weinstien's Absolute Scam
I am writing this for all the new recruits that seek employment each week in Brandon and Clearwater, FL from Dave Weinstien. Don't be roped into his lies unless you have several weeks to work door to door for free. I will stick to the facts and just tell you what I do know.
It's door to door sales for ADT Security
The owner is Dave Weinstien
Bonuses during training for the highest sellers in the class that are in the thousands
401K and Health Benefits in the recruiting ad
Direct deposit for sales commision
Gas cards for bonuses
That he is a millionaire
That you can make thousands a year working for him (I won't quote a number because I am sure that is ever changing as is the bonus promises)
The first week you make manager's commission at 280 per sale
After the first week you make 225 per sale
You get paid AFTER installation. Not sure how long after your sale installs because I haven't met anyone that actually got paid yet.
Absolute Security Scheduling handles the installation schedule, not ADT.
To learn the scripts sell to family and friends the first week (also may help you win that bonus)
Walk the streets door to door and sell security systems
What I know now to be True:
Bonuses are a non-existent incentive that encourages new hires to sell to family and friends in desperation to make a few thousand dollars quickly.
His office has a high turn over rate because salesmen do not get paid in a timely fashion. 3-5 weeks without a penny from Absolute Security is disheartening to anyone.
He has no current sales people only a few unpaid managers that are owed too much to give up and walk out.
The managers have only been there for 3-5 weeks, have not been paid bonuses or for their first sales either
When you do get sales and the installation is scheduled in the computer for a certain day you can call scheduling and they do not seem to be scheduled. Notes on accounts like Dave Weinstien is handeling it personally instead may be found which doesn't help explain to customers when they should be home for installation.
A certain manager sold to his significant other the first week he was employeed. This manager three weeks later has not been paid for this sale and the security system has not been installed.
When Dave says you won't believe the bonus I give you if you close another sale today he does not mean a monetary bonus
There are no gas cards handed out
The rules for the bonus or contest are ever changing and when you ask Dave about it he skirts the question and tells you that you will get paid for your sales after the install.
You have to pay for your own background checks which take 25 dollars off your sale. Not that you are going to see that money anyway.
You owe 40 per shirt if he ever gives you one.
So before you buy the dream Dave's selling ask yourself this:
Can you live at least a month with no paycheck while walking the streets selling for Dave until 9pm some nights?
Can you look past the fact that there is no bonus?
Who gets the commission for the sales for all the people that sold to their family and friends or to strangers to get a bonus and quit because they never got paid?
Who actually has health insurance or a 401K plan with Dave?
Dave Weinstien recruits a class of people expecting them to quit, dangles bonus dreams to get them to sell and starves them until they quit and he collects the commission on all sales.
If he has a few salesmen hang on he makes them managers and they help train the recruits in hopes that someday they will get paid since they have too many sales and too much time invested to just walk away.
Installation is postponed until after an employee quits.
The only benefactor of any sales you make is Dave.
I believe this is fraud and if he's a millionaire why can't he pay out bonuses and pay for sales?
I just want to prevent anyone from being scammed, evicted, not having food, empty gas tanks, borrowing from family and friends to survive just to line Dave Weinsiens pockets. He is a man with no respect for the human condition. He is insulting and rude and only cares about his bottom line. But if you are trying to lose weight you will walk several miles a day and you will not be able to afford decent food. So if you are looking for a tyrant personal trainer Absolute Security is a great deal. If you are looking for a paycheck find a paying job.
