PMD Furniture Direct / Another dealer speaks out

1 Idaho Falls, ID, United States Review updated:

I have worked over 25 years building businesses and wealth for others. As is typical in the corporate world, great rewards and wealth were offered by former employers, but in the end, promises were left unfulfilled. They got wealthy and I had a J.O.B. (Just Over Broke).

I admit I was skeptical at first and failed miserably my 1st year in the business. I was one of those guys who had a better way of doing things and wasn't totally committed to the PMD process and system. However, PMD was serious about their commitment to my success. They provided the system, training and support that allowed me to concentrate my efforts on becoming very profitable.

After 5 years in the business, 1 year being a complete idiot and 4 years of hard work, I have developed a business that generates income for me in excess of $150, 000 per year. I have the piece of mind knowing that my business generates this income whether I am present or not I now have all the things I worked so hard for -time, freedom and financial security.

For me, the PMD opportunity came along just at the right time and was that once in a lifetime opportunity we all seek.

    Something tells me this franchise opportunity is going to just go away. I started looking over the FDD that was emailed to me recently and I just deleted it.

    The undeniable reality is that the more involved Joe Ametta has gotten the worse PMD has become.

    The company is financially on a downward spiral.

    PMD management and dealers don't trust/like you.

    Listening to you talk at conferences is painfully boring

    People resent the conflict of interest. Credit Card/Pennysaver.

    The list goes on...

    The thing that concerns me the most is that Jeff put's up with you. There must be something else going on? The numbers don't lie. The fact are undeniable. No one is able or wants to come to your aid. Even your brother has expressed serious reservations regarding you. In fact I am pretty sure JA will not be involved with PMD in 2010.

    When the Dealer Association presents it's "recommendations" for the betterment of the company. One of the first action items will be to terminate you. The Dealer Association will want an explanation of why things were allowed to deteriorate exponentially during your involvement with PMD.

    The problems you bring to the table are painfully obvious. People want solutions.

    I know this is a forum to discuss the FA. However this is a package deal and Joe Armetta is part of the package

    Tim L….Remember him? .

    Tim got into trouble with Jeff. Initially it was because was helping a dealer negotiate a lease. In doing so Tim was going to make a commission. As a mgr. Tim violated company policy because of the conflict of interest.

    Joe Armetta makes money off dealers with his “Buyers Club” by selling them advertising.

    Several dealers have left PMD after finding out Joe was overcharging them for their advertising. Two of these dealers where Rookies of the Year. Both of these dealers did over 700K their first year in the business. That is a lot of lost revenue for PMD.
