THIS IS THE WORSE EMPLYER EVER!!! I worked for this compnay.. and all I can say to other is PLEASE STAY AWAY!! It is a total scam!!! reps are forced to work long hours 6 days a week, being promised that they will be promoted and one day have their own office opened for them... the average rep works 50 hours a week and is paid based on comission only!! and only gets 200-300$/week and that's if ur lucky, I've seem some reps get pay checks for 100$. The whole company is based on a scam, u go to stores and mis represent urself as fund raisers for non profit organizations, only 5% goes to the charity!!! they post up 5 ads a day using different job titles and contact names to attempt to sucker more ppl in, with ads like "executive managers needed" etc... SCAM SCAM SCAM!!!

    Hey I also worked for the company and if you were making 100 to 200 dollars a week you probably were not very good. This type of Marketing is not for the weak at heart. I am very grateful of the information that I was taught, how to engage in conversation in the professional way. I even learned how to take a interview and built a small team before me and my wife had to relocate out of province. Do you think Child Find Ontario would work with a scam of a company really. Why don' t you call the charity they love the work we do for them we charge them nothing and the company gives them free money. Explain how to give them more money, anyways I worked for this company for about three months had lots of fun learned a ton and yes had to work longer hours but to be a someone you usually do. At the end of the day I will say that this is a great company but you must have a good attitude and open mind. Have a good day and good luck on the job search. Thanks Chris

    TO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL... 1ST, I SAID 2-300$/WEEK!! 2ND, ONLY 5% GOES TO THE CHARITY, 3RD THEY ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO USE CHILD FINDS NAME BECAUSE ONE OF THE EXECS AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID BID ON USING THE NAME FOR ONE YEAR AND RENTS IT OUT TO ALL THE SMALLER BUSINESSES LIKE TITAN... 120% THIS IS A SCAM AND IF UR TOO DUMB TO REALIZE THAT, THEN U WILL NEVER SUCCEED... U COULD HAVE GOT THESE EXACT SAME SKILLS WORKING FOR ANY SALES COMPANY EXCEPT U WOULD HAVE MADE MORE.. I KNOW THIS CUZ I AM CURRENTLY WORKING FOR ANOTHER SAKES COMPANY, WE HAVE MORNING MEETINGS, THEY USE ALL THE SAME TERMS, ALL THE SAME LESSONS..ETC ONLY DIFFERENCE IS, IM MAKING $700-900 A WEEK NOW... SERIOUSLY MAKING 35% COMMISSION OFF OF $10 ITEMS AND FRAUDULENTLY USING A NON FOR PROFIT CHARITY'S NAME IS NOT ANY WAY TO MAKE MONEY OR "BECOME COMEBODY"

    I agree with Chris,
    I just started working for this company and my pays aren't like that.. i haven't been here for very long but the ppl are nice and i am learning a lot.. perhaps you didn't try as well as you could have. If you want something bad enough you work hard for it.. life isn't easy and long hours is just the beginning

    I currently work here, I am just curious which location you worked at and how long you worked there for.
    How did they phrase their promises, was it "we are expanding now and are looking managers blah blah you can become one in 6-8 months if you master these things"

    I agree with you that it is false representation, and the "training" you get you are not paid for.. I can talk to people and get them to "donate" to charity all day without learning how to climb mountains and any steps.

    Today was my first day working there and so far i'm not very impressed I will be looking for a new job in the meantime, at least i am making a little money as opposed to sitting at home for now.

    For those of you who have worked there if you could tell me how long you have been there and if you have, or seen any1 else around you has been promoted

    Thanks

    Its not a scam, however there are better opportunities out there.
    This type of job isnt for everyone.. its a high turnover. thats just the way it is.
    The pays do vary, as do the people and locations you work at. When it comes down to it, its up to you whether or not you want to do well there. It happens, otherwise there wouldnt be as many offices as there are across Canada.
    Personally, there are better fits for me.. obviously the same goes for you.
    Again, not a scam but there's greener pastures out there.

    I would have to agree with Ms.Bubbles . Whenever you are a company and you are mis-representing yourself as another company.. especially a charity. It is NOT ethical, therefore it is a scam . The worst part about it is when you are mentioning that the money is going to charity and only 5% goes to it? . I personally don't understand how there can be more offices around Canada seeing the way they practice there business model.

    It all depends on the person and what they want to do in pursuing this company But I defenetly don't encourage it. Lying to other people and Mis-Representing yourself is no way to succeed in business.

    Titan's a scam... Any company that posts multiple ads using fake names and fake job titles is a scam... Come on now!! Any company that hires everyone that walks thru their doors is a scam... Any company that has their receptionist working from a kitchen is a scam... Any company that states their "promoting community awareness of Child safety and raising funds on their behalf" when truly only 5% goes to the charity and the reps are taught NOTHING about the charity and are forced to be aggressive and harass every single person that walks by is a scam... If this company really WERE working on Child Find’s behalf then wouldn’t there be a focus in training about the charity and what they do and how to represent them accurately?? You will never make good money doing this and you will only be taken advantage of while being forced to take advantage of others who belive they are helping out a reputable charity =/

    This is totally a scam! Their website doesn't even work anymore. I went for an interview this past April when they were called Titan. In my interview they pulled in another guy and interviewed both of us at the same time, what type of company conducts interviews like that? When I asked them about their sales revenue for the year and if they can prove if anyone has been promoted, the guy told me he is a manager but ignored my valid questions about their revenue. I have been in sales for almost 5 years working in high tech and NEVER in my life been interviewed like this. I used to be a recruiter for a placement agency and never conducted interviews with two people at once! I got up and left the interview because it was a WASTE of my time and the guy interviewing me was a complete [censor]! My boyfriend is currently looking for a part-time job and has been contacted by a company called "Eagle Eye Marketing" - www.eagleeyeinc.net/, they called him today for an interview. When I looked at the address, it looked familiar...after google maping it - it's the same address for Titan! Looks like they have changed the company name and are now scamming under a "new company"! Just thought I'd post that in case anyone applies to Eagle Eye or gets a call...

    First I want to say I am not for or against Titan, I know of the operation as friend do work with them and I also have a friend who works for a diferent company. But it Seems many people are very verbal on the pros to Titan, funny thing is they are NOT a scam, but practice very high pressure sales tatics. Yes some sales people do lie and bend the truth. I know that the sales people share private info on people who buy alarms to boost the sales to other people who live in the area, most if not all sales people do not live in the town they are selling in, Titan sells all the accounts to a 3rd party monitoring company, Titan doesn't take out electrcial permits (in B.C) as required by law, Titan does donate 5% (better than nothing) to charity, Titan sales people do not know the product they are selling (most are hired out of school and trained for a few weeks then fired off to the streets), Titan owner is being sued for 1 million, Titan has had over 19 complaints to the BBB in last 12 months (most within the last 3 months), Titan is under investigation (in B.C) y the Security Program and Electrical Safety Div (both goverment run agencies), sales people are paid on Commis, so forceful sales tatics are the only way they will get paid. I could go on with more facts, but can not seem to find too many positve ones so I think I will end now. Best thing to do is if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is! This goes for working for Titan and buying from Titan. Research all job offers, check out the company first, search the net... And do the same when buying (remember it may be free or cheap at the start but a 5 year contract at $45 per month is steep, you end up paying tripe on what the alarm is worth over the 5 years. Most of the alarms systems Titan sells are worth around $500.00 installed and the going rate for monitoring [in B.C] is $20 to $25). So do the math before you buy...
