Single's Station Dating Company Uethical Business Principles, Sexual Harassment, Discrimination, $2,500-$10,000 membership fees! Tulsa, Nashville, St. Louis, Bentonville, Fort Smith, Springfield, Little Rock, Oklahoma City, Memphis Nationwide
*Consumer Comment: You hit the nail right on the head!!!
*Consumer Suggestion: Single stations
To begin with, the membership fees to join start at $2,500 dollars and go up to $10,000! But don't expect them to disclose that over the phone. Their business plan is to "pre-qualify" you over the phone, tell you to bring in a credit card, and check book (if you don't bring either of these they won't even book the appointment) then bring you down to the office to meet with a HIGH PRESSURE salesman also known as a "relationship counselor."
They say they are selective of who they allow to join yet they will take anyone with money even if the person has been convicted of a crime. Oh, unless you are BLACK or MEXICAN because they don't allow minorities to join unless their income is close to $100K. Even if you SOUND like you MIGHT be black on the phone they will not schedule an appointment with you and that's the only way you can join so don't even bother. They won't even advertise in "black" areas of town to avoid receiving questionaires from what they call "demographically challenged people."
In addition to discrimination against potential clients, there is discrimination in the work place. The manager referred to one hispanic employee as a "beaner." Joking or not, that should NEVER be said in a place of business from a manager in particular.
In fact, the regional manager Jonathon Marcoulides has been sued for sexual harassment not once but twice. He was sued by an employee when he worked at a dating company called Together and then even sued by an Oklahoma City Single's Station employee. Not to mention if you check his record on OSCN he has had quite a number of lawsuits against him for various things. What does this say about a man that runs the entire company?
Jonathon is not the only employee accused of sexual harassment. Sean Kennedy, the Tulsa "relationship counselor" has had to my knowledge two claims from female employees of inappropriate sexual behavior that the company let continue even after knowing of both cases and didn't even document the latest claim! Not only does Sean have a DUI and several Controlled Substance convictions, the wife he boasts about that he met through the Single's Station does not even live with him anymore.
To add to all these problems, the employee turn-over rate is through the roof! Hiring convicted felons and anyone else off the street who needs a job for 10 bucks an hour (or $9.00/hour if you are a female). They are like used car salesmen who will do and say whatever it takes to get you in the door and pay for the services and if the employees don't meet the sales quotas they are gone. The way a company treats its employees is a huge indicator of how they will treat their clients.
Now what educated, intelligent person would pay thousands of dollars to join a company with not only a bad business reputation, but also discrimation and sexual harassment claims, ex-convict employees, and pushy sales people all in the hopes of meeting that special person they want to spend the rest of their lives with yet the "introductions" they offer don't even meet the clients requirements. Yes, they don't guaruntee love or marriage they only guaruntee the opportunity for those things but why would anyone spend their hard earned money for a service that doesn't guaruntee or produce results?
