Jesco is BAD news!!!

Sales Agent (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at US Jesco as a contractor for more than a year

ProsHmmm, not very many, unless you want medicore health insurance and an average wage of about $4/hour.

ConsIf you are a good pitchman, you can make decent commissions. On the other hand, their promises of flexible schedules to accomodate actors is a lie. Their promise of accurate payroll accounting is a huge deception, I have been shorted hundreds of dollars. Also keep in mind, before you are paid your 15% commission as a trainee, or 20% commission after you finish your training, they first deduct 5% from your sales to cover returns of their already defective products. If someone returns an item bought prior to you working a store, they deduct it from your sales. They also don't provide you accurate or verifiable accounting of how many of your sales actually go through the stores' cash registers.

And woe to anyone who gets on the wrong side of their supervisors. You'll find yourself driving hundred mile round-trips to empty stores.

And do NOT believe their line about "working with" actors who need to work around auditions. I was consistently denied time off that I requested over a week in advance.

They also claim that they have this network of great trainers, but they typically don't answer when you initially call, and might call you back 30% of the time.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease wake-up and realize what you are doing to good honest people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
