Collegepro painters

I worked as a franchisee for Collegepro this past summer, and let me tell you - it was HELL! do not work here unless you are super desperate - I define desperate as in even McDonald's would not hire you to work for them. I was a freshman in college, and I never heard about Collegepro before. Having no money or job, Collegepro promised me both. All I had to do was sign on the dotted lines. Little did I know at the time what a big mistake I'm making. I have not heard about the bad reputation of Collegepro after being in college for a month. I didn't know that if you backed out of the contract, they would charge you $4000. But one of my friends backed out, and she did not get charged. You see guys, Collegepro is too scared to sue because they are afraid to get publicized about what a big scam company they are. They also said they will only take 25% of my revenue as royalties, but they took 36% instead. They charged 5% as liabilities (wtf is that anyways?! ), and 5% for their call centre expenses. On top of the fees they charged, they ALSO charged 5% GST because the company does not want to pay their own GST. Anyways, I was working about 60hr/week for basically minimum wage, and it was hot and sweaty, and I was miserable. All that work for money? It was like selling your soul to the devil. They promise that you will learn many skills, but all I learned was how to perform manual labour. All the work entilled was calling customers (who were usually pissed off), booking them in the right time, doing the job (which was usually shitty), and collecting their money at the end. By doing this job, some people actually LOST money from working for THEM. If you are a consumer reading this, please think twice about buying a paint job from an innocent college student - Collegepro manipulate students to say that so that consumers will be more likely to buy from them. You have to realize that most of the money is not going to fund the student's tuition, but to this big evil company. If you want to join me in putting an end to this evil scam, please DO NOT BUY from Collegepro. From this experience, I learned that 1) when something sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true, and 2) don't be so gullible, and cross-examine everything before signing a contract. I am writing this article because I hope that it will stop other people from signing with them.
