Platinum Sports Promotion – JAM Prospects PTY LTD – Review
some background before i begin:
- the offered jobs pay was 100% on commission of the donations you force out of people on the street.
- Only 20% of the acquired donation makes it to the charity, the rest is split through the people in this some how legal pyramid scheme of a business.
This all begun as i was searching through seek.com for a marketing grad position. i came across platinum sports promotion, looking for young marketing grads. i added it to the apply list and sent of my resume. a day or two later i got a call asking if i was interested in an interview so i agreed to meet the next day at 8am at their CBD office space. when i got home i read up on the company and noticed the impressive 9 followers on facebook- this is suppose to be a marketing company and they cant even get 10 fucking followers…straight away i was suspect to say the least. so i attend the initial job interview she explains the job as a desk based marketing position where they represent sporting leagues like the AFL and Cricket Australia which i didnt believe at all, and she says come back tomorrow for a trial sort
my alarm goes off and instantly im like fuck it im staying in bed, but i figured i would at least learn a thing or two so i get ready in my required business attire. I rock up late because i didn’t give a fuck at this stage, the job was obviously shit and way below what i deserve, and their is about 8 of us applicants waiting. Near us there is about 30 well dressed young tools chanting and listening to pump up music getting ready for their day at work (this was obviously a weekly routine done by all the staff on the day of the group interviews to make dumbfucks like the other 7 people sitting next to me think “man this place is cool, look at the energy and atmosphere” ) obviously it didn’t fool me and i am instantly more pissed off by the terrible loud music and surrounding of total fuckheads. so i go into a room where 2 guys collects me and another to take us out into the field.
you know those fucking retards that try to unethically force you into donations at shopping centers…this was them, and they were taking me out with them…all of 24 hours ago the fucking HR lady had assured me this wasnt the exact job it was, so fuck it im calling her out, jasmine your a lying bitch fuck you. if you think im being harsh just wait until i explain the business model of this scum corporation. so i head out with another applicant ‘angus’ and 2 of the staff members in there car. they explain what we would be doing for the day, and what they do on a 6 day a week basis, in short its annoying shoppers and unethically forcing them to donate money to st
rategically selected charities. i am properly regretting my decision to not sleep in this morning as they expect me to stand on the side of a busy cafe strip approaching people and making them donate money.
the whole ride in the car to the location the 2 mentors told us about how much money there boss makes and how quick he moved up the ranks, and how they are so successful and how easy it is to make sooooo much money (they are attempting to brainwash us, and they literally fucking had angus, he was in love, he was amazed. he literally beleived every word they said, i obviously saw straight through the lies because i am a fucking genius) so we get there and they set up there faggy stall and instantly start annoying the fuc
k out of everyone. for the first hour i watched these brainwashed puppets get rejected no stop and it made me so happy. then i saw a someone i knew FML. they came over to say hello and instantly the 2 fuckheads start harassing her and trying to unethically force her to donate 30$, im trying to have a fucking conversation and these tools are cockblocking me proper. so im making eyes like DO NOT DONATE, RUN, and she gets it and leaves. so skip most of the day and they have explained to me the disgracefully unethical selling techniques they use to coax as much money out of people as possible (i already knew all of them, hell im unethical but even i draw the line at lying straight to peoples faces about where the money their hard earned money is going).
THESE FUCKERS ALSO TAKE EFTPOS/VISA! that is how desperate they are.
and they regularly get donations of $250+ (only 50 of that makes it to the charity) . they get the person in, then that person is like oh fuck off, but to nice to say it so they are stuck, they then make them feel guilty and ask them to donate, the person is thinking like 5$ at this stage, anything to get them out of the situation, but then these scum lie and say $30 i
s the minimum donation (when $10 is, but 30 is 3 times the commission) i watched this poor 20 year girl showing all signs of discomfort sign her visa card details to them for a $3o dollar donation she so obviously did not want to do. each donation that is made only 20% of the donation actually goes to the charity the other 80% is distributed throughout this fucked up pyramid scheme with each person above you getting a 20% cut. by this stage i had seen enough and gave them my perspective (basically telling them to go fuck them selves and get a real job) and left. angus had been brainwashed and had become one of the scum.
finally these 2 retards taking us out explained to me how they make “soo much money, its awesome” so they gave me some rough figures and i honestly worked out they are both on about $12.2 an hour, with no bonus for overtime or saturday work, i told them this but these idiots where so brainwashed they didnt even care.
i believe the guy who runs the Perth side of this load of shit is named marek and i am calling him out too. get a real job and stop stealing hard earned money of these pensioners, students, parents. and to all the brainwashed fuckheads in this organization, who have been promised the world, trust me i know it all, you will waste 3 years of your life in a company like this. you will not progress like they promise, you will not make more then $15 an hour, and you will not be able to travel the world. you honestly wont believe how brainwashed these people become until you see it for your selves. i would highly recommend going and doing the trial day with these companies as you will learn a lot.
my final note is this – there 2012 goal was to raise $30 million for the s
pecial Olympics foundation nationwide (there are probably 10 of these “businesses” like platinum sports and JAM prospects running through the APPCO group nationwide which worked towards this goal). in order for the special Olympics to receive this donation of $30million, $150 million dollars have to be taken of the streets, through face to face donations. Yes $150 million dollars. $150 million taken of people like you, our parents, grandparents etc. $120million of the $150 million would of lined the pockets of hundreds of these fucking scum across the country and the globe (Appco group is international). so i re-iterate if these losers approach you on the street, at your business premises or at a shopping center, ask if they receive a commission (they are legally obliged to tell you) and if they do tell them to get on their knee’s and suck your dick.
*any one working on a donations based job should be paid
an hourly wage due to a conflict of interest, which ALWAYS leads to unethical selling.
i’ve made a work for these type of scum companies ‘scumponies’
