I don't care about saying my name I am Shari Alexis from Hammond, Louisiana and i'm writing this for my husband and I, Joshmond Alexis. We were avid in looking for a job and we came across the ad they had in a classified in Louisiana I called and they paid for our bus tickets to Fife, Washington. Everything was good the first couple of days. until me and my husband started talking to other people in the company...Well we stuck with this thing for 2 months and "bailed". We left Louisiana broke and came back broke. Mr. Whitely would give us 5$ a day to eat and live off that, we been with them for 2 months and didn't see a paycheck! I like to say i'm sorry to all the people who we scammed, but I had to provide for my husband and I someway and I like to thank those who gave me money personally for myself. Michael Whitely is a corrupt feind that needs to stop pulling the wool over all our eyes! Shame on you mr. Whitely with your deceptive self!

Rebuttal to a rebuttal

AUTHOR: Shari - (United States)

 Antione if that is your real name . You know, it’s funny reading this years later, and I have to say Michael Whitley has y’all brainwashed and bamboozled and I don’t see how maybe y’all wasnt strong willed like me and my husband and we seen what kind of situation we was in with y’all so called company. Tell me do you still work for Michael? Did he send you home? Did you ever get a check in the 3 or so years you worked for him? We didn’t get to leave because the man would move us from state to state really fast. When we was with y’all we came to you all in Fife, Washington, a week later we was in Denver, Colorado and we was there for 3 weeks when the consumers started getting hip to the schemes. And yeah the crew was tore up nothing but a bunch of crackheads , powderheads, potheads and alcoholics. I just hope for your sake you left and didn’t look back. Michael G Whitley is a criminal he is a flat out crook.

AUTHOR: Antoine J Brown - (United States of America)

Hello. To everyone out there reading this. I can only speak for myself, and anyone who feels the same way I do and hasn't spoken up yet. My Name is Antoine J Brown.
I've been going door-door with this company forrrr. Well the better part of 3yrs, and from the  experience I can tell you that being on this job, It can be real tough for a young man or
women to make it in this field because of other people actions. I know this because I've done some of those things to survive in this lifetime. We all have, but I cant blame no one else for my actions.
The longer I stayed in the business, the more I realized that there are people who takes what
they are doing very seriously and the things that I was doing was hindering others as well as myself. What Shari Alexis did was good.
She posted a name. Shari??? You need to speak for yourself sweetheart. I was here when
Y'all was around. Anybody that know about sales, knows you have to produce. When Shari and her Husband first got off the bus, They each received $10.00 just like I and everyone else here did.
You make 50% commission, have a year free room and board. The only way you wouldn't make no money is if your taking draws.
When I first arrived, It was in Maryland. You have 24 working days to figure out if You feel like you can do the job. I realized I can do this when I earned my first $75.00 bonuses  in the meeting room for having more sales (25) production (25) and new person under my first 24 working days (25) I beat everybody.
I did that 6 times under my first 24 working days. Can I just say that it feels good to get
recognition for doing your job. Everything is what you make of it.
Most people don't like the fact that you have to walk door-door and can't take no for an answer time after time. "NO" is a part of life.
If Shari didn't like the job why not leave after 24 days?
Why try to blame something you were doing or in your case wasn't doing on someone else?
I'm on 75% commission, but I pay for my room and board being here over a year.
Yeah!!!  Its What you make of it like anything else.
You mostly as a new person has the option to take 2 separate draws, A $5.00 draw in the afternoon for lunch, and a $10.00 draw when you check in your orders that night. You have an option to take those draws. Each draw you take counts against you if you don't have the commission on your books to cover for it.
Whats 0% of 0? Right... Now if your working and your not selling anything but you keep on taking draws. Your basically over drawn more than what your making.
There's been times when I've been in the hole and He would just clear my debt. He don't have
to do that for me or anyone else, but he does, and that's why I can appreciate Mr. Whitely for
the business and for the people that do come from different areas willing to make a honest
living. Most people I've talked to in my time that's taking an sincere interest in me has
been done wrong, but I'd like to be the one to restore faith in people who sincerely
support me.  O YEAH
For all I know by reading everyone else comments,
There are a lot of crews out there going door-door selling
books and magazines. How is it that everybody is pinning everything on
us??? I've even heard stories about Kids from local schools and colleges
going door to door having the same complaints... I feel like the only
reason that we get blamed so much is that were one of the few companies
who goes to the City Hall and Police department to get registered. When
IT hits the fan people don't know what company came by, and when they
file there complaints with the police department or the city council
Were the only business they have on record. I say that to say this... Be
more thorough when making a complaint. How would you feel if you was in
my shoes and you did all the necessary things to do your job to your
best of your ability and people just shoot you down because of some
Knucklehead they met before you and not even from the same company was
being deceptive???
