SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Capital Business Solutions is a Cydcor affiliate/subsidiary; that should pretty much tell you everything you need to know.

It's a commission-only, door to door sales job (they tell you they have a base + commission package, but it's pure BS).

They also mentioned "paid training" (it's neither paid, nor training. You only get paid if you make sales; and your "training" is just following around one of their older sales reps, and hopefully figuring out everything you need to do as you go).

No benefits (they mentioned health care once, but even if that's true, there's NOTHING else).

You're encouraged to lie to customers if it gets them to sign up (even though they will never tell you so plainly).

You work around 60+ hours a week, and unless you're making at least 10 sales a week, it turns out to be much less than minimum wage (especially when you factor in all of the work-related expenses for which they never reimburse you - like mileage, gas, or parking).

They say you can get promoted in a week or so; but your "promotion" is a simply a new title with more responsibilities (you have to come to work earlier, stay later, and attend a mandatory weekly party), and NO increase in pay whatsoever!

Whatever they tell you in the interview, this is a door to door sales job, pure and simple.

I definitely get the cult vibe from this place (you have to stand in circles, clap, and call each other demeaning names on a regular basis).

Unless you're a fan of the cydcor business model, commission-only door to door sales, and no benefits, I would stay away from this place.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

All the charges are true?

AUTHOR: Jessica - ()

Alan:  I noted that your lengthy reply did not address the claims made by the original poster. There is not one sentence saying the claims are false.

The claims include the following:

1. It's a commission only, door to door sales job.

2. The "paid training" is neither paid or entails any training.

3. No benefits.  The company lied about health care.

4. Encouraged to lie to customers.

5. Work around 60+ hours a week.

6. Promotions is a simply a new title with no pay increase.

I had worked at Cydcor corporate several years and I know from personal experience that they are all true.

Do your research

AUTHOR: Alan - ()

My name is Alan and I have served as Market Manager in Columbus for nearly 2 years now. All the above claims are about me directly and my company. One of the benefits of running a company with genuine concern passion and integrity; one that stands behind its mission and people, while providing quality results for our clients is that it makes it easy to differentiate people who have actually met and interacted with our company from frauds. My entire company friends and family and client were all shocked and confused upon having read the above statement. Anyone who actually meets with me or any member of our company will be equally confused.  We have been operating in Columbus for 2 years with no negative reviews after conducting hundreds of interviews and successfully training countless individuals in business to consumer sales on behalf of Att, and developing leaders to manage markets at the request of our clients.

Please visit our website teamcbsinc.com and read through all of the positive customer feedback we receive weekly (despite allegedly being lied to) as well as all of our positive employee reviews and awards for satisfaction we are so proud to have achieved. I’m not sure what we’re disguising we are very open and transparent in all of our operations we even have a newsletter created by our team to offer an inside look at our operations. I suppose no great company can escape criticism, however the intent of websites such as this are to expose bad business practices and companies who scam people out of time and money. 

Although I’m sure I have never met this individual and probably will never speak to them it seems as if they have had a bad experience or have heard of someone else’s at another company and have falsely projected that onto ours. I would like to say I feel genuinely sorry for you, and hope you can move past maliciously harming others you have never come into contact with. I encourage the author of this article or anyone who derives any negative opinion about my company from its completely false information, or who wants to know why it contradicts everything we stand for to contact our company at 6147173989 and ask to speak with Alan.
