I sold mags d2d for about 3 weeks. The car handlers were threatening the kids if they were late for a pick up time or if they didn't sell as many subsriptions as what there quota was. I hated the job, and got out as soon as I felt it wasn't for me. Please if you want to go home, just do it! Don't prolong your wait, it will just leave you somewhere in a strange place, and with no money.

Well it seems all so fun at first they tell you that you will make so much money and travel for free so I didnt have a job and it seemed like something fun to do. well it was until i tried to go home i was all the way in orlando florida i told my car handler at about *9 am i wanted to go home she told me that i couldnt quit in her car so she spotted me out so i blanked all day when i got back to the hotel that night i told my boss i wanted to go home. He flipped out got my room key recoded and said good luck getting my things and getting home. so i called my father - he sent me a ticket. they told me i had to refuse transportation. i didnt want to but i had no choice i had 600 on my books and they made up lies and said that i didnt have any money that cancelled orders took the money away so i had no money.

They tell you they will give you money to go home on well i went clear from fl to ohio with no money they wouldnt give me any. As your reading this there is alot more to this then i am saying. i would be here all day typing but dont ever go its not worth the abuse you go through just so sometimes you can eat or have money period. i feel horrible for anyone that tries to leave that went through what i did. my friend is still there shes afraid to leave she tries to sneak out but he wont let her. dont do it

I started off bad ass but when we got to Hawaii it was the end of something I called freedom. They told us we would only pay so much for the round trip and everyday would cost us $10 more for rent. Me and all of my friends were selling no less than eight a day and max about 18, but when we checked our books we were all negative. I started advising everyone to check their books cuz we were being robbed. I rawled up all the girls that went and everyone wanted to quit. They ended up meeting with us and discussing where our books were at but I still had a feeling I was being scammed. One day they dropped everyone off exept me and my director started driving back to the hotel. They said I was disorganizing the whole group and they were sending me back to the home land to meet with the group in L.A. As soon as I got there they took me straight to the bus station, luckily they were courteous enough to buy my bus ticket and they gave me forty dollars. I was torn apart from my friends that were like my sisters.

I found the job in the want ads of my local paper, went and interviewed, they blew some smoke up my butt, so I tried it out I ended up gettin fed up with it and quit, too many lies and decitfulness, the only good friends I made out of it where my roomates, lol the funny thing is people talked that job up so much that even they believe they where doing a good thing, when in reality they where lying to people just to sell a stupid magazine.

When I got the job I was working at a gas station and hated it and me and a friend where planning on getting our own place. So we were both looking for a new job when we found this add that said cool jobs with great pay. So we called the number and they said that we would be working in sales and that we would be working on college campuses and military areas and that we would be making anywhere from $20 to $100 a day and it was good pay with lots of fun. They needed me right away though like that day or the next if possible and that I would have a 2 week traning process. They would send me the bus ticket and pick me up from the bus station when I got there. So I packed my things that day and quit my job and headed out the next day. I ended up leaving alone though my girl friend stayed at home with her mom she said she couldn't just leave everyone like that. When I got to the bus station where they were suppose to be waiting for me when I arrived in Toledo, there was no one there so I waited for about an hour and called the number that I had called to begin with and they said that they had no vehicals there but that I could take a cap and that they would pay for it. I was paid for just being there that day even though I didn't work that day and everything seemed really cool. I went out the following day and saw how it was done.

After being there for a month when I wasn't selling as great as they thought I should I was only getting around $15 a day and was only getting to eat once a day and some days not eating that much. I did how ever really like the people I worked with and met some really great friends and hope to hear from them again soon. We lost touch with each other when she left and they through some of her belongings away. (She left not a week after me, and in her belongings was my address and phone number so that she could get in touch.)

When I decided to leave it was because we weren't getting paid at all and I hadn't eaten a bite of anything for 3 days and felt so sick. I was also sleeping in the floor in my room that I had to share with three other girls because I sold less magazines then they did.

When I decided to leave they kept trying to keep me from leaving, like kept trying to take my bags back to my room and stuff like that. I did however make it home though and I am very happy for that. I do however miss my friends from crew and wish that I could get in contact with them.

Oh, we also were stopped by the police several times for selling the magazines with out a permit and some of my friends even went to jail for it for a few days. It was really scarey at times. I also had another friend who got held up in this really bad area where she was working. Plus I had several people try to pick me up while I was waiting for my ride but I knew where some of my guy friends where working and found them so I would be safe. One of my other friends that I met on crew called me after she left and told me that she and her boyfriend were both beat up when they left the crew. He was jumped by four of the managers on the crew. Anyways, the experience wasn't that bad of one but I do think that someone wanting to do this needs to really think of all the things that they have heard or read before jumping into it. God Bless! Lots of love!
