T.H. Executives / Scam and lies!
So i saw job for this firm on a job board like Monster.com I applied for it. The 'president of the company' called me back. I went in for a first round interview. keep in mind the job was about 60-70 miles from where i live. I went because on their website it's promises a chance to 'move up in the firm' so T.H. Executives decides they want a second interview. I go over. This day i will 'job shadow' 2 guys. One named Eddie and one named Jerry. I was suppose to be at T.H. Executives at 11:30 am i showed up at 11:00 am. Jerry which was suppose to take me out into the field doesn't show up until at least noon. so i ask Jerry some questions about the job. he tells me we are basically a 1099.(meaning your self employed) which then means you as the worker have to take all of your taxes out at the end of the year.
What they sell is these kind of gift certificate books either 'free' or half off certificates. For $30 dollars these books are. and Jerry said 'we market it for Wheelchair basketball' I asked him how much from each book goes toward wheel chair basketball. He said 50 cents per book. GIVE ME A BREAK I THOUGHT. Less than 2%. So i ride in Eddie's piece of crap old truck out to Sam's to sell these books. each sale you make 10 dollars a book. Jerry and Eddie split what they make meaning if one of them sell a book one gets 5 dollars and the other gets 5 dollars. they stand at the edge of door (at the 2 exits of Sam's club) and say 'Hey wanna check this out we're doing something cool for wheelchair basketball' Jerry practically would shove the book into the gentleman's or lady's gut.
Sam's Club wouldn't allow us to stand inside the foyer.Keep in mind in Ohio in the middle of February in Ohio it gets about 0 or below 0 with windchill. In the matter of about 2.5 or 3 hours asking every person coming out they sold 2 books. Which amounted to less than 20 bucks together they grossed. which comes out to about 4 dollars an hour pre tax. You take out taxes your down to about 3.50 (about) plus Eddie had to go buy Candy to hand out to kids so it came out of his commission. so in that matter of 2.5 or 3 hours. he made nothing in the matter of 2.5 or 3 hours. So after watching for 2.5 or 3 hours and asking a lot of people and they wouldn't buy. I asked one of them to take me back to the office to go home. Eddie refused to. So i decided to call a cab. which cost 30 dollars.
Also i found out the president Tina makes 10 bucks per book you sell. then who recruited her makes like 1 or 2 bucks so it's a giant pyramid.
So if you get a call from T.H. Executives unless you like making less than min. wage. Tell them your not interested.
also when they come to your door or at wal-mart or whatever, tell them 'I'll donate more than 2% to wheelchair basketball!
