Spectrum Concepts ripoff Charlotte North Carolina
I wanted to give a heads up to anyone thinking about joining this organization. Ok, this company is not a scam, as it may seem. What Ryan McNulty does is not uncommon across the U.S. Asside from the contracts that he must sign in order to work with Bellsouth or Cingular, he has no loyalty to those companies or to his employees. He and many other companies like Spectrum Concepts will continue to recruit people. If you decide to work there, you will work with people who have little skill or education.
I myself have worked there and I went to a four year college, but did not feel that I was working with the top of my class, as Ryan will lead you to believe. You job will entail going to a Cingular store, of which are 10 locations currently. Ryan will fill your head with notions of expansion, but lets face reality, there are only a certain number of corporately owned Cingular stores that can be opened in the Charlotte market. Plan on staying in the Cingular store from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm mon-sat. The only way you will make the guarantee of $350 a week is to work mon-sat. Oh yeah, that $350 is before taxes, so expect around $200-250 after taxes if you don't sell over the minimum of $350.
Truthfully, you can actually make more than that amount a week. On any given week you can make anywhere from $500-1000 a week, which is not bad considering the hrs you will be expected to work. Road trips are also part of some of the interesting things that Ryan will want you to do in order to learn about other offices and managers, run an office by yourself, or get an opportunity to see other markets. This guy is a real piece of work. He will try to pigeon hole you into going on these trips. True it is a good learning experience of how good your skills are, but these trips are paid out of your pocket, he may, if you are lucky provide you with some compensation for gas or maybe provide it as a bonus, I though managers would take care of there employees, but this guy, I started to wonder if he cares about anyone other than himself and making money.
Oh yeah, if he makes so much money, ask him to show you his car or where he lives, what a joke! The company Cydcor is actually who you will work for. Honestly they have an extremely good idea. However, Cydcor was founded in Canada, so forget about benefits if you live in the states. Don't get fooled by the way he will put you down if you ask about benefits. Truth be told, the idiot had a SERIOUS condition that ended up costing him thousands of dollars that were made by other individuals, not him. Be sure to ask him about that. This guy has no business running a business. He will make you feel bad if you don't want to go to team night or if you aren't putting time into your people. His method of management is through intimidation, which he really isn't good at.
I mean lets be real, who is intimidated by some one who will not tell you the complete truth or will make you feel like you are there friend. His bread and butter is working with people who don't know any better or just can't get there foot in the door anywhere else. As far as opportunity goes, there is a real opportunity to make alot of money with Cydcor. If you choose to work with Ryan, you will ultimately be making money for him, so think wisely if you want to work with this guy. They use sale techniques that are rather aggressive, but they do work and are useful in any aspect of life, so I guess there is some value there. This post is definately not sour grapes, because I actually learned more about sales and myself that I did when I started. This is basically to let others know what to expect when they start, because Ryan McNulty will definately not tell you the entire truth, just what he wants you to know.
