Showcase Listing / Failure to Pay Wages
This company hires all of its employees under 1099 Independent Contractor. That is how they get away having each employee in their customer service department working for well under state and federal minimum wage, around $250 per week or an unacceptable $6.25 hourly wage for a 40 hour week. No benefits are offered, and employees are encouraged (by management) to apply for unemployment and food stamps to make up the difference in what they receive at Showcase.
With Showcase Listing, you get what you pay for. The people they pay to handle the accounts are not compensated properly and are not taught the best practices in search. In fact, there are many accounts that have been sold that they cannot get up in the search engines because of their black hat (spam) techniques.
As a previous "independent contractor" of Showcase Listing, I have seen the fraud. Clients keep paying month after month with NO RESULTS FROM SHOWCASE LISTING. This is great for the owners and investors of Showcase Listing, but terrible for clients of showcase listing. To anyone that receives a call from this company I would suggest you do more research into the local listing process. The local listing process seriously takes under 5 minutes of your time and it is FREE!, not the $199 per month people pay this scam of a company for!
