Want to try a sweepstakes buy a state lottery ticket where the odds are a lot better. Looking for a job in Florida - you can do better at McDonalds and have a clean conscience (unless you are a drug user in which case SDP's lack of a drug test works for you).

NME/SDP aint no kingdom.
Hood wasn't a king.
Brady ain't a king.
The net sum is just a crappy evil little machine.
JUST HANG UP if you feel compelled to call them.
Run like a rabbit from those upsells.
Go to your local flee market where you can get all the magazines you want for $1 each and they will buy them back next week for 50 cents.

Members of middle management have negative thoughts about this place but drag themselves into work for the paycheck.

Surely some employee leach will have a whiney rebuttal.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I agree SDP is a complete Rip off

AUTHOR: Betty's Niece - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, August 22, 2007

In the time I was an employee of that company, I worked in several departments. Each one was an even bigger joke then the last one. I even worked in the "Customer Service/ Customer Retention Dept." Where I had to learn the "Rip off Report," rebuttal. I am so glad for the rip off reports. You have done a lot, to help people from being victimized more so, then they could have been.

Something that still bothers me today, was when I the Customer Service department, I was called by an elderly women that I had sold a renewal for when I was in the Outbound department. When I was in the outbound department. And, yes all of you that get several calls a day, are being called by SDP, NME or New Times and Traditions, company oddly enough, they are the same company. After, you order the mags, a couple of months go by and your get a call from them, and yes even when your service is not up, you get called. Well, needless to say, each department dosn't know what the other department is doing and the sales staff, never has access to all the clients records. Well, getting back to the point, I found out that the person that I sold a renewel to, now had a long subscription lasting several years. Why, is an elderly lady going to need such a long subscription to so many magazine. Half of which she didn't read. When I was in the outbound department, I had no clue that this woman had such a long subscription.

And the funny thing is that is that the company would have us push magazines. So, people who are into hunting and fishing, get sent Latina. Or a poor elderly lady who is into sewing would get Maxim. And for those who pay for recycling magazine hate getting those "Freebee's," I often heard from so many customers that they were more of a headache then anything else.

Since, I left that company over a year ago, I can sleep at night. What the employees of NME/SDP etc, etc are saying about this company is true. I can tell you first hand that they are a rip off, not only to the customers, but to there employees, too. Still to this day, people are amazed when I tell them that before I left the company, I was actually making less money then when I first started. When I left there were 7 pay cuts. This company has no morals what so ever, no wonder they had and probably still have such a high turn-over.

Paul there is no leadership and no honor at SDP.

AUTHOR: David - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, December 12, 2006

Paul I think you are trying to say there is NO LEADERSHIP and NO HONOR at SDP/NME. They certainly do not practice never leave a man (woman) behind. Hasn't Brady been repeatedly known to trash his comrades to better himself? How did he get to the CEO position? Are the owners even awake? Do the owners have any brains at all? Someone on another posting left the following.

Does anyone know why all these
SDP/NME managers are gone?
Jim Shalale OneSwitch GM gone
Cindy the CIO gone
Ginny VP Operations gone
Pat the Corporate Attorney gone
Suzanne the other attorney gone
Sam Salvo gone
The CFO gone
The Controller gone
Edna in lists gone
Chip Block Vice Chairman gone.
Dawn Russo VP gone.
Jack Linder VP must be gone since he is no longer listed on the web site

Who knows how many other worker bees are gone. No insult intended if you got booted and aren't on the above list speak up and make yourself known.

And it has been reported that they have issued thousands and thousands of W-2's to ex employees that aren't there anymore.
