I was recruited and trained for a promising position to perform knife demos' in Sam's

Club for the Hessler Worldwide knife company by a gentleman by the name of Brad Sloop?

Don't even know if it's his real name because of the shicety behavior that took place. Brad

Sloop told me I would be trained with a guaranteed base pay of $300, which was stipulated in the

Compensation agreement. So for the next 5 days between July 11th Thru July 15th I performed demos,passed out coupons, cleaned tomatoe juice off counters and cleaned and wiped down knives after each demo

Brad stated that I would get paid the following Friday for the time and training that I put in,he even

Went so far as to make arrangements for me to go up to Wausau Wisconsin since I was already working at the Sam's Club in Milwaukee Wi. However due to difficulties in transportation I was not able to continue on

And even so Brad told me that as soon as I got my transportation situation straightened out he would be more than happy to work with me again and that as he promised I would receive a base pay of $300

For the days worked. Well that's when the trouble began after close to 10 days after their pay period I never received my paycheck ? I call the hessler branch in Massillion,Oh and ask to speak with someone in acounting ? But instead of just simply transferring me, the guy is Brads Manager Joe and he ask me who. Is this,where are you from etc. He then states "oh I'm familiar with your name ,your working the wisconsin area, you need to call Brad he's the one that pays you,I'm like WHAT? I'm very confused as I forwarded all my w2's application over to Hessler and everything presented had Hessler Worldwide. On it and I was working in a Hessler contracted location which was Sam's Club ? This company contracts with Sam's Club & BJ's how they do that and not pay employees is beyond comprehensable. I then call Brad Sloop @708 829-3628 AND HE TELLS ME THAT HE'S NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYROLL- he tells me unknowingly to call his Hessler manager in Ohio Joe and that THEIR RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYROLL- I then tell him I just spoke to the Hessler location in Ohio and they told me to call you. E then went on to say " oh well I will call over ther right now and straighten it out. At this point I am so upset that I got involved in a crooked company that makes promising claims that you can make between $50,000 - $60,000 per year but can't even pay a $300 base pay. I do believe their

Is a lot of this going on with others, you should go to to ripoffreport.com to review other complaints on this co. Currently I have ben waiting for approx. 3 weeks for my paycheck ad have not received anything, how can a company contact with a major company like Sams Club & Bj's and carry out this time of backstabing decitful behavior and get away with it. I do honestly believe Sams, Bj's and other retailers are in the blind on this as well as the prospective demonstrators and the consumers who are sams club & BJ's members that purchase thes knives randomly at demos conducted in these popular retailers. I trusted The Hessler Worldwide because of their association with Sam's Clubs across the u.s. as well as Brad Sloop who recruited and trained me for 5 days. BEWARE PLEASE CHECK THIS COMPANY OUT BEFORE DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM.

Hessler Worldwide has paid me as of the same day I filed the complaints, as soon as I finished

With he filing,the check was in the mail box. Thank you Hessler Worldwide,but the main reason

I proceeded to file is because I called the wisconsin/michigan manager Brad Sloop

Like 30x's with no answer and no call back whatsoever ? So that made me feel as if I would

Not get paid. All Brad had to do was simply answer the phone and tell me its in the mail you shoul

Get it this Friday, sorry about the delay. But I was told I would be sent a check on the 3rd of august

But this check was not sent until the 6th of august and I received it today on the 10th of August.

Again Continued success in your business and again thank you for my paycheck.

I worked for this company too. This company is not on the up and up. They sell their used demo knives to customers and pass them off as new. They tried to hold commissions from me. That is when I walked right into SAMs Club(where we work inside of), and right back out with all their knives($4000 worth). Needless to say my money was wired into my Bank Account the next day and they got their knives back! I never had money issues with them after that. When initially hired by Joe P., I call him Joe Pinocchio, I got this big song and dance about how much money I would make, advancements, blah blah. When asking important deal breaker questions, I always got a favorable response. Then I accept the position and he introduces me to Mark D, my immediate manager. Wow, what a character this guy is! They offered me a quick no money, job title promotion to get me to do anything for the company without them having to pay much more! They said i would be Zone Manager real soon and the company has big plans and expanding on the maps everywhere! That's when everything Joe told me, Mark said opposite. Now I am having to pay huge expenses, travel for weeks at a time with heavy loads of merchandise along with a selling booth, and hire, train, recruit a sales force. I was told I had to set up booths on my off days and hire. I was ordered to pick up boxes of knives at a shipment facility 40 miles from my house on my off time! I was told by Joe initially, all I would need is a car to get me around the surrounding area and other than that I would perform demonstrations. I was never mentioned shipping boxes and booths in my car. He said the boxes would be shipped to the location. Not the case, You need an SUV or Van for this job. And be prepared to spend about 200 to 300 dollars in expenses every week. I was explained I would only have to buy the tomatoes and bread for expenses. Joe forgot to add sanitizer, paper-towels, hammers, cutting boards, 1000 copies a week at OfficeMax for ad slips, gas, you pay one half of your hotel expenses upfront(no reimbursement)! And whatever else I forgot to mention like batteries! Hopefully, you get paid once you beat it out of them. If you are thinking about buying a new knife set, keep on, they are cheaply made in China and true surgical steel does not rust like these do! If your thinking about working for these guys, find them at the bottom of the ocean with all the other con-artists! I would sell fireballs in hell before!
