I began working at this company in January 2006 and was promised 26k/year as well as 10% comission on all sales. The deals all start around 50k USD so I thought it was a great opportunity to make some extra cash for college. I searched all over the net to find anything negative about the company and couldn't, so I thought it was legit. It wasn't until I quit my job and started there that I found out it was a low down scam.
Most of the employees there have an alias. The owner (Ron Walker) is also "John Smith" and the project manager (Paul Mutart) is "Jack Crew". I'm sure Jerzy Leptuch has one as well, but I do not know it. They used these names when calling large US companies and tried to pressure them in to buying outdoor advertising.
The whole sales pitch is a lie. The jist of it is "We have one package left, it won't be here tomorrow, buy it now" when in reality there are plenty (this is if they even had the programming rights to these tv screens, they claimed they did but now I'm not so sure).
So the big day came when I closed a deal in March. I still have not been paid and it's now the middle of May. The commercials were supposed to run from May 10 - July 10, and were supposed to be paid to the company by now. Now they are telling us that the project has been cancelled and no one is getting their commission.
The company pays once a month and have been at LEAST 3 weeks late paying their employees for the last 3 months. I (and others) call there every day about our pay and the only answers we can get are "I don't know when you'll get paid", "You quit, what do you expect" or "Maybe next week".
They also tried to hire someone to go to a competing company and "spy" on them. They wanted him to find out their clients, banned list and employees, so the guy went to their website and made up a list of fake names and actually sold it to them for $500 CDN.
They have other locations as well all over the world, where the employees are there on tourist visas and when they expire, they leave for a day, get a new visa and come back.
All of you US business owners beware when looking for exposure. Don't ever do business with this company.
