Home Makeover Systems HMS Deceptive Employment Sales Position Ad Longwood, Florida

*UPDATE EX-employee responds: The Real Deal From Inside

April 2012

I recently called Home Makeover Systems about an ad they had listed looking for sales people.  Home Makeover Systems is a water purification company mainly and  also sales E Shield  in homes to help reduce electric utility cost.   The ad indicated that it was an outside sales position for water purification with preset leads offering a base salary plus commissions as well.  I spoke with Jessica who is the HR Recruiter there who also verified this; but when I went in for the interview and spoke with Alex, one of their managers,  it was a completely different story. 

He told me that they do not pay a base salary but instead a draw which means whatever you sell your draw is deducted from.  That's a far cry from a base salary, but I accepted this because I was also told that you have the option to switch over to a commission base only as well which is what I wanted to eventually acheive because the income potential is far greater. 

I did tell Alex though that I would need that draw for the first few weeks just to have some money to fall back on so that I could get familar with the product and service it offered which is a major key to doing any sale.  I did however frown on the fact the company ran a misleading ad and 2 days later during training finally walked away after being told by another sales manager, John, that if you need a draw to sell this, then you do not need to be working for this company.  

Here's the problem: The company ran a deceptive ad stating that they pay a base salary for this sales postion being advertised when in fact it's nothing more than a draw and then try desuade you from taking the draw right off the bat.  The bottom line is they lied about this.  After I quit, I did some more research on the company and found out that they are not a BBB acredited business.  If you have to lie to get salespeople to work for your company in order to promote your products and services, then that is sad as well as pathetic.   Good salespeople are the key ingredient to almost every company's success and these people want to lie to you about a base salary when there is none.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

The Real Deal From Inside

AUTHOR: Mr. B - ()

So if you would like to know really what happened regarding this persons experience you are in the right spot.  I was there when everything happened and let me tell you, this person making the claim is truly a piece of the biggest problem regarding the internet.  Any person with a minimal I.Q. and less than credible reputation can make a statement that can impact a company that has been in business for many years simply because of its excellent relationship with the community and for having a truly excellent relationship with all of its employees.   A wise man once said and I quote “you can find negative comments on the pope if you try!”  The individual whom made the statement has a criminal background involving violence against law enforcement mind you, but yet he attempts to portray himself as an innocent person who was deceived instead of the truth which is, my friend you are a bum and complete scum.  I worked for this company for 8 years and during this time I developed a family relationship with the owners and all of its employees.  There was no mistreatment like the garbage that others of tried to state, there was no trickery or sketchy tactics, and there was no disrespect!  There is a reason that every ex-employee that gets on the internet and spew venom are ex-employees but not by there own omission. They were complete garbage, thieves, and liars. Now this person a violent criminal in the community against yes even law enforcement.  This individual became very nervous once told there would be a criminal background check that would take place, because guess what everyone, Home Makeover Systems always has and always will play by the rules!  They don’t want any involvement with someone such as this person which can reflect poorly on the company or worse, do harm to an innocent consumer.  So the truth is when this person was hired, everything agreed upon was fine!  When the criminal background check was mentioned, sweat began to fall, and his eyes began to twitch.  Oh no!  He finally was able to find a company to accept him and they too would soon find what everybody else has found, he is a DEADBEAT and now he would be fired because of it.  So what was his way of holding his head high, instead of taking responsibility of his past???  He goes on the internet and pretends to be something in which he’s not!  He pretends to be a person who actually contributes to this community, he pretends to be someone that someone with higher than an elementary education would actually listen to, and slams the very company he tried very hard to gain employment from.  That my friend is why you are and always will be…NOTHING!  You blame everyone else!  You are no different than someone who lies online about there life to get a date because you have accomplished nothing in your life and probably still live at home with your parents. I am an ex employee with the nothing to gain here except to be heard.  I have no reason to be less than forth coming.  The truth is the last 8 years were incredible.  I learned every aspect to become a successful business person in my own company which is why I left.  They gave me the tools and credentials to take me to the next stage.  So anybody reading this that might be doing research on this company before coming aboard, like many do, just know this company provides one hell of an opportunity!  I would take a bullet for all included with this organization and am a better person for knowing all of them.  So that’s the real deal from inside!  I said good day!
