It's now been about a year since I was ripped off by the manus group auto sales training racket. I along with many others assumed we were being employed by a car dealership in the D.C.
area. Of those that attended the training, about half were hired and one actually quit after he was lied to by the trainer about required work hours even though he was initially hired. The Manus Group will lure you in with a two day period to go for an interview ask you to attend a three day training. At the end of the first day, if not before, we were asked to pay $698 by the next morning.
All during the training it was mentioned that we were all needed and there would be a job for somewhere if not at that dealership. Two people who did not get hired (maybe more) were harassed into paying their fees even though they were not hired and neither had a job to pay for it. Finally one person was days away from an eviction. After spending three days in Manus training (that could have been spent looking for a real job opportunity) they learned they would not be hired.
All of this was done on dealership premises. The auto business deserves its sleazy reputation.
