    They make you feel it’s the best opportunity out there! ITS NOT! I came across a district manager in the valley,they offered me the job,they said you get a 2,500 salary which is not a salary you have to pay them back,you have goals to meet,rates are horrible,unless you have good connections in the Beverly Hills area,DO NOT DO IT! Your wasting your money
