I have been scammed by this company. I've only work there a few weeks and have noticed they target the elderly. They have a set age group 55-78.... At 1st I didn't realize that their dialer system was making calls out of the phone book. After calling the same people over and over again it was clear I was making telemarketing calls to random people
out of the telephone book. Their system would call people the very next day when the call was marked as "NOT INTERESTED" this is a form of harassment. I was let go because I couldn't  keep people on the line long enough to set an appointment for a Tech to visit their home. I spent most day being hung up on by people tried of telling SEAL-RITE
they are not interested. I have called them three times about my final paycheck, I have been told twice it was mailed. However, it only takes 1 day for mail to travel in the city of Tampa. Not to mention we are in the same area code 33619. Beware of this company, anyone who would not pay their employees and target the elderly cant be trusted in my view.   . [continued below]....

The above text was a copy of my letter to the BBB, I have since pulled Hillsborough County Sheriff's office Arrest Inquiry and found the OWNER (AYERS, WOODROW WILSON) haS a nice record. DUI'S AND AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH DEADLY WEAPON. I had no ideal who I was working with. NOW that i'm trying to get PAID my last check I see.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Open letter to Woody Ayers

AUTHOR: anonymous - (USA)

Woody, you are such a huge piece of crap!!!!!

You claim to be this upstanding person in the community but all of these stories are true.

I am an ex employee who is still owed close to $3,000 for work that I not only did but yes Woody I checked all of the jobs I am owed on & they were INSTALLED & COMPLETED!!!!

It is funny that I am sure you will say that I am a disgruntled ex-employee. That is true, I am but only because you STOLE ALMOST $3,000 from me & I can also tell you that out of the 8 ex-employees I know & am still in contact with, ALL are STILL OWED MONEY!!!!!

You & Ron are DESPICABLE people who use smoke & mirrors & coercion to sell not your own products, but another company's products AT A HUGE INFLATED PRICES all while SCREWING YOUR OWN EMPLOYEES OUT OF THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!

If that's how you treat the people who take care of your company then how would you treat your customers? Oh yeah, I know... You change your name as needed to avoid not only ex-employees but to NULL & VOID YOUR LIFETIME WARRANTY ON YOUR, er um I MEAN THE WINDOWS YOU SELL for another manufacturer.

So let's recap that, you started out as an aluminum company (can't remember the name right now), then Revco, then Seal Rite & now Impulse Marketing, REALLY???  Why not just be honest & take care of both your employees & customers??? You would find you would have a much stronger & more profitable business if you would but alas... You are both JUST TOO d**n GREEDY TO CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT YOURSELVES!!!!!!

If you are looking for a good job, steer clear of these liars & cheats & if you are in the market for windows...   Then definitely STAY AWAY FROM THESE LOW LIFES,    unless you want to pay 3 times what their products should sell for...

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

same tricks new name

AUTHOR: bugger369 - (United States of America)

Just thought I would update everyone, Ron and Woody are up to the same old tricks just under a new name. The company formally known as Revco and Seal Rite have changed names once again and now are known as Impluse Marketing. Still targeting the elderly with over priced windows and home fixtures. The phone reps. are scripted to introduce themselves as calling from the "Certified Company". Ron still runs a closed door policy and still is the master at dodging any questions that have to do with the way the scripts are worded. All creative ideas go unnoticed and ignored. And Kathy Toro is still at her"Fantastic" training methods. The company has an add on Craigslist promising potential earnings of anywhere between 9 to 20 dollars an hour. So beware guys and don't fall for it.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Open Letter To Antonio King

AUTHOR: Woody Ayers - (United States of America)

 Dear Mr. King;
First I would like to address the issue concerning my character that you have posted to this site. In 2005 I had been at a business meeting at local restaurant with a vendor. After leaving the restaurant I did bump into another automobile and the police were called. Luckily no one was hurt as it was a very minor fender bender at a gas station. The deadly weapon charge was dropped (a car is considered a deadly weapon) as I did not intentionally try to hit anyone or their car.

In 2006 I did receive a DUI as I was over the legal limit as determined by Florida Statue. It was and has been my only DUI incident.

This was probably the best thing that could have happened to me as it redirected my life. Later in 2006 I met and eventually married a fantastic lady. Since that time I have gone back to church and now help in several civic circles. My recommendation to everyone is to never drink and to never ever drink and drive.

Now to address the other issues that you have put in this post.

In todays economic climate we do target anyone who wants to purchase new windows. I do not know where you got your information but it is totally incorrect. We use the normal avenues of marketing and advertising to earn a consumers business.

I did review your personal file as I have never met your personally. Your employment started on July 18, 2012 and your last day of active work was July 30, 2012 a total of 9 days work days with the company.

I was informed on Friday that your final check had not been received. After speaking with payroll I suggested that we issue a stop payment on your check that was mailed and have you come and pick up a replacement on Monday. I was informed that you refused to pick up your check at the office. I am having payroll send your replacement check to you via US certified mail to verify that you have gotten it.

I do wish you the best in your future endeavors.
Woodrow Ayers

I have been informed by our payroll department that you did recieve your check and signed for it certified mail.
