After i took part in drug use with my managers wife, i lost respect for both of them so i quit. I went home for a week and then went to work for someone honest who doesnt tolerate the drugs. I had a huge problem Richie Lamb drug testing other reps. and letting them drive a car full of 10-13 others lives, including myself, after testing positive for crack-cocaine. When Ritchie found out i went to work for someone else he lost it completely. He not only stole money from her (he had access to her account), but made up lies about her to try getting her fired. He took money from me as well, putting me on a smaller commission than agreed upon.(25%) less. When he was confronted, he started verbally abusing me, as well as my current employer. I have a phone full of evil threatening text messages. He had put money that i had earned into my moms account for my phone bill, and then took it right back out after i told him i was done with him and his crooked ways. Him and his wife April take pain killers so much, when they dont have any left, they turn into monsters. Then there is the company owner Mark Shumate who keeps Ritchie and his messed up wife around and feels comfortable with them handeling his buss. when hes not there. Mark sent text messages when my employer said she wouldnt have anything to do with their scandelous ways. Included in these texts which are all saved, was him stating he hopes she dies of lung cancer. Who says something like that? These people do not clear their orders, never have..and im sad to say that i had been a part of this scandelous company. Please beware !

#1 Consumer Comment

Just my observation

AUTHOR: Observer - ()

I only googled mark Schumacher because I sat in front of him returning from a dish network convention and because he was such a a*s on the plain letting everyone know all about his life I consider it public knowledge. If he is a dish retailer out of pheonix I didn't get the name of his dish business. I did get his name and in the conversation with the guy that had to sit next to him, whom he was trying to pick up. Their conversation echoed throughout the plain and I listened to music threw most of his rant. Drunk off is a*s he ordered two doubles on the us airways plain in coach but he is the chairman of the board. He is the top retailer for dish , I do know for a fact that's a lie. Isn't even the top retailer in pheonix buythat makes 13 million a year and has a Bentley, smokes weed, and does cocaine as a matter a fact he and the stock broker next to him each did a few lines near the end of the flight. He has two daughters which he pays 4000 a month child support for ages 26 and 16. Two ex wives they didn't get his business. one of the daughters is a trust fund baby who is a nurse and gets 30,000 a quarter. He is bisexual and got it on with a dude who is hot in Amsterdam. Was trying to get the stock broker to sleep with him and said several times he would f**k his a*s half the night. Even though he is married with two kids. Didn't know anything about dish at all and has 1200 door to door people that make him all his money. Said several time he didn't care how loud he was he is a successful entranpuor that's what it sounded like coming out of his mouth. if Charlie owner of dish was in my seat he wouldn't be a entranpuor for long. Everyone on the plain was disgusted, having a dish shirt on I told the people on the plain don't hold it against dish this guy is a idiot.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

u may know mark but u obviosly dont know richie

AUTHOR: anthony - (United States of America)

I met mark schuumate once or twice when i worked for bob and tina cecil and when i worked for richie lamb and i do know for a fact he does not tolerate drug use in his companies but i do also know how much of a drug addict richie and his entire crew are so either he really doesnt see whats going on or more than likely is either turning a blind eye cuz he's known richie for a while and doesnt want to beleive it or that he is just making to much moeny off richies crew to care why would he not take richies word for it if richie deals with all the issues that go along with drugs in the hotel and keeps sending marks money to him. idk about now but when i was there mark was only there for about three days in the whole eight months i worked for richie

#3 UPDATE Employee

Please See through This Attempt to Smear this Company!

AUTHOR: Elaine Haun - (United States of America)

I have been any employee for Syn, Inc. for 5 years.  This is an obvious attempt by a couple of angry ex-employees to run a smear campaign. I work in the corporate office and we do send out drug test on a weekly basis.  We also, buy bus tickets for those individuals who fail those test and are terminated immediately!  I find it hard to believe that someone so conscientious to keep drugs out of his business would partake in them himself.  The rambling on about funds being withdrawn from personal bank accounts does not make sense either. Who allows a boss to have access to thier bank accounts?  I know Mark Shumate personally and can not believe that he would have anything but sympathy for someone ailing with lung cancer.  This article was obviously written by someone very emotional and I pity them, but, I would definitely believe there is LITTLE TRUTH  in this article.  SYN is a great company that works very hard to maintain a good name and reputation.
