8th of Dec, 2011 by User646100
Just like other reports on this site, I went through the same interview process and was hired right away by Doug Alvino. Having past experience in sales I excelled quickly in there home depot promotion. I got promotion each of my first two weeks there and before I knew it I was taken kids with me to the home depots training them while at the same time trying to generate leads to make enough money to feed myslef. I had relocated hundreds of miles from home on Doug and Erics promises that I was going to be successful . About a month in, Doug came into our morning meetings and announced he was offered to go to LA California and start an office. Returning to office that evening I was asked by Doug to go with him to LA. He feed me lies that he would promised to promote me as office manger over the other 3 guys that were coming with us. Two of the guys had been there for years. He then proceeded to bribe me by telling me if I came and helped start his own office that he not only would promote me to office manager in a month but that he would set me up at an office in San Deigo with my own Sears promotion that was in the works. Being from a small town of only a few thounsand people and no oppurtunities, I thought this was my ticket, needless to say it was the worse decision of my life. In the morning mettings leading up to departure, Eric and Doug talked about there excited new office, and how well us guys were going to going and well we would be taken care of. We were being told we would be put up in a house for all 3 guys and Doug to crash until the everyone could adjust to the dramatic change. Needless to say....I stayed in a hotel with two beds, 1 bathroom and 5 men. Need I say more? I was told by Doug that if i took my truck he would reimburse me for any business use. Needless to say, myself and one of the guys ended up having to cart Doug and everyone around back and forth work on our own expense. Some mornings I would wake up and Doug had taken my Car without even asking, as though it was his own. Anytime I confront Doug about gas I was just giving a spill on how much he was doing for us... In Doug and Erics buiness you have to train other people to generate leads to make a % of there pay. Without having people under you it is impossable to make a decent living. One of the the other promises of Doug and Eric was that we would be traing up to 10 people a week starting the first week! Needless to say....3 people were put in front of me in almost 3months. I soon came to know that the same promises had been made to the other 3 men that came with us about being promoted to office manager over everyone else and being giving there own office in 3 months. I realized Doug and Eric could not be trusted and was digging myslef into a financail hole. At one point I had work 29 days straight for over 10 hrs a days. When we asked for days off we were treatned the promises of promotions saying someone else would step up and take our place. I begin to ask Doug if he could show me the paper work of how many of my leads were turning into appointments, which is what pays me, and he was unable to get me anything. I was generating dozens and dozens of leads, more leads and one day then some entire offices were in a week for home depot, but yet my check always very very small. I had no choice but to return home to live off my parents until I could get back on my feet. Needless to say, after I left, the office feel apart, and Doug went MIA on 2 of the men that stayed because they didnt have the money to get home. Messed up thing is, some of these guys had wifes, kids, girlfriends that also were affected by Doug and Erics greed and selfishness. Please beware of these men. They will tell you everything you want to hear to make a dollor. Please beware of Doug and Eric
