Avoid Direct Buy
ST LOUIS, MISSOURI -- I worked at Direct Buy for about 3 months. Let me tell you how unethical the place is. When I got hired I was told by the owner that I would make 10.00 an hour PLUS 100 dollars for every member I signed up. Signing up three a week would get you to 35,000 a year. That sounded great to me.
Right after I started, the owner told me that I had to get a minimum of three in the week before I would get any bonus. Then after a month he told us that they didn't want the sales people to get three one week and none the next so they made us get 6 in the pay period before we made any bonus. Then a short time later he said that we aren't getting the higher priced memberships so if the membership is 3000 or less and you bonus those memberships will get you only 50 instead of 100. It was obvious that this was nothing more than an hourly job.
It is possible to make the company close to 500,000 in profit and receive only 20,000 in pay. That is less than 5%. If a company is going to shaft their employees this bad what do you think they would do to their members?
