Blue Lion Marketing Bait and Switch Greensboro, North Carolina
28th of Dec, 2011 by User165632
I was hired by Blue Lion Marketing (an independent contractor of AT&T) in November of 2011. During both the phone interview and the face to face interview, I was told that the salary was $400 per week plus the possibility of comission. I was also told that I would be paid $200 for the week long training period. Neither was true. The truth is that this is a completely comission based job. I had to provide my own transportation to the "field", use my personal cell phone for work purposes and attend mandatory out of town "conference calls". None of this was mentioned during the interview process. I was not given a reimbursement for the gas or cell phone usage. I was sick the weekend of the "conference call" so did not have to pay for that trip out of my own pocket. We were expected to walk, knocking on doors from 11am until 6pm or until we made a sale. If we did not make a sale, we were not paid. No tax forms were given to me during the training period because no federal, state or local taxes were taken out of the 2 paychecks I received. No information was offered about how to file my taxes. The manager of this office, Lawrence Inman, is a rude, sheltered, condescending braggart. He flashed his paycheck, banks statements & money around several times to various employees. He expected the employees to make sales during the hours when most people are at work and became puzzled when sales were not made. I have read several of the other complaints made against this company on this website and agree with all of them. I did check this business out with the BBB before accepting a job, however the BBB does not register complaints from current or former employees, only customers. I am considering filing a complaint with the State of North Carolina about their business practices, but at this time have not made up my mind. Beware to all who accept employment with this company no matter which location you pick!!!!!
