Work Out World Complaint - Extreme Hard Sell
FREEHOLD, NEW JERSEY -- I recently started working in Freehold and am looking at health clubs in the area. My doctor wants me to start exercising. I stopped in at W. O.W. on my lunch hour. What a waste of time.
The salesman couldn't have been more rude. They don't let you look at the gym until you agree to listen to the pitch. I explained I was a little pressed for time and he tells me to come back when I have more time. Then he says the process take 45 minutes. I told him I would be happy to sit down once I see the gym and decide if it appeals to me. Then he starts to insult me.
I politely asked him why the hard sell. He says he is a salesman and he is supposed to sell me. Unbelievable. Then he says if I don't want to sit down, I can just leave. I asked him why lose a potential customer. Then he gets obnoxious. A real piss ant of a salesman.
So I left. I never saw the place but if was any good, they would have had no problem with letting me see it first. And judging from the other reviews, I am probably right.
