resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I responded to an ad on craigslist that said, "FUN OFFICE!" and had a phone number to call so I immediately didn't think it was a scam. My first interview, I was told that I would be making $500 per week and that I would be training for whatever position that I chose (Sales person, Accountant, Receptionist, or Manager/Owner). Sounded great, right? Wrong.
My second interview, I sat and listened to Mike Gilchrist, a self-proclaimed millionaire, who told us his whole life story up to that point for 3 hours straight. He was so motivated and positive, it made you have a good attitude. Again, we were promised that we wouldn't be selling anything. Some people left, I guess because they were smarter or more informed than I was at the time. I was hired and was excited about the job and working with this guy. He's a real con artist.
My first day I was told to go home and sell these fake purfumes and colognes to my friends/family. We were promised a $1000 bonus to whoever sold the most on the condition that we all sold at least 5. We had no samples, no real paper work, nothing to show anyone except for our word. I ended up selling 5 and was pretty proud of that, thinking that it was difficult enough just getting that many.
My second day I came into work, ready to go. We were given samples and shoved out the door to go sale his purfumes along with a team leader. Again, they told us we wouldn't have to sell anything; yet, that's ALL we were doing. On top of that, we weren't getting paid hourly...we were only paid for commision and not even justifiably paid at that. That day, I got stranded in Charlotte, 5 minutes away from the office and Mike couldn't even come and pick me up. I had to spend $10 on a cab ride out of the $25 I had made for those 5 sales. That's when I knew he wasn't a good person.
I came home that night, did research and found out that there are SO MANY other stories JUST like mine! He really is a con artist. And he's moving state to state because people are figuring him out. I want EVERYONE to know. He is using people and sucking them dry. I have a daughter to provide a future for, and if you're like me, you don't have time for people like him. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM MICHAEL GILCHRIST. HE IS A CON ARTIST!!!
