Ultimate Technologies / Fraud and cheating
I moved here to Knoxville from Philadelphia in December, I saw an ad in the knoxville setinel that said guaranteed $400-600 a week. In the it said nothing about sales just a friendly, energetic individual who likes loud music no experience necessary. Well when I called the number the girl who answered was very rude and had an attitude the size china. She had no answers for me on every question I asked and when I went in for the interview it was apcked wall to wall they were telling people to sit on the floor because they didn't have enough room.
Long story short, I got the job. I went in for training and the girl who trained us nice but all she kept saying was my first day I went in and had no idea what I was doing I just smiled and said wasn't that easy and they bought it. ###. Aside from her lying to us she couldn't stop arguing with her boyfriend who worked there as well. It was just a very unprofessional place.
So my first day going out with a 'crew' thank God my boyfriend was with me because the people in that van were so obnoxious. Between all of the rap music and the marijuana smoking it was ridiculous. They didn't care what you had to say or if you had a question to ask all they cared about was getting high.
I finally felt comfortable to do a demo by myself after watching other people do them all day and the 'team leader' told me no. I just about lost it. I sat that in that nasty smelly van all day for what? for him to tell me no? No I don't think so. So in the end I worked there a total of 3 days and got no money whatsoever because that $400-600 a week guarantee was legitimate either you only got that money if you demoed 30 shows in 2 weeks which is damned near impossible because they cram those nasty vans with 8 people.
Anyway if you are considering a job with the kirby 'family' think again before you do it because it is a disgusting company to work for.
