Well.. My story is a lot like everyone elses I guess...

I was 22, just left my husband and basically didnt know what to do with myself... I was staying with a friend on the Jersey Shore and some guy knocked on the door selling magazines...

I started asking him questions about his occupation and he was full of info about it...

He basically hired me on the spot, telling me how much fun it was, how much money I would make and etc...

I left with them that night...got to a hotel in Edison, NJ.... they put me in a room with some girl who had guys in and out of the room all night (gross)...

Well, I quickly became one of their top sellers...

It all came to an end when after being picked up from our selling area one evening... the driver/manager told me i didnt sell enough and i should get back out, in the dark, in NY and go knocking on more doors...

I said "no way buddy, its 9pm and you cannot make me walk around by myself in a bad neighborhood".... he got pissed and was refusing to let me back in the van and then told me "ill pick you up at 10:30 right here" and he sped off...

Well, I went to a corner diner and sat on my ass until then, and got picked up at 10:55pm...

Got in the van and he asked me how much I sold and I said "nothing, you wasted your time" and when we got back to the hotel, I went into the boss's room and told him how I was treated and also wanted all this money I was promised (because i wasnt getting paid cash, they kept promising it but then would give us cocaine or pot and alcohol and tell us to go party and he will get me the money soon---thats how they had these kids sucked in... with drugs!)

So, I told him to F*** off and I stormed out of his room.... and some people from the crew were listening at the door and when I walked out, this guy said "im going with you"... so me and this guy left...

It wasnt a fun experience, it was disturbing and I feel bad for the people working doing this type of thing. The boss and his wife, along with 2 other crew members (who were married and had met while working there) had kids... they each had a baby... what a life for the kid! Geez... I feel bad for some of the girls that were also there... Its just sad... I wish I could get in touch with some of them now but This was back in 1994 and who kows where they are and really I cant even remember their names...

I dont even remember the name of the mag crew... I would know it if i heard it... but I was with them such a short time...

I was the only one on the crew with a car, and i even had my cat with me LOL... I told them that was the only way I would come and they said it was ok... but I hated it.. I dont think anyone ever got any mag's... It was all bullshit im sure.

Now, I live with my fiance of 6 years in Nashville, Tn.. Im 30 years old and the mag crew is anchient history.

But be warned any of you who are looking into this as a career... its not a good thing... Its not worth the bullshit and certainly not a career goal... you wont make any money.
