Reason for Rating
BBB rating is based on 16 factors. Get the details about the factors considered.
This business has no rating because complaints against it are handled by another BBB.
As of February 18, 2009 the BBB serving NW Ohio & SE Michigan has received an increase in calls regarding Safety Enterpises, in the past known as G&M Marketing. The company is headquartered in the Akron, OH area.
Consumers have advised the BBB that the company is advertising in our local area newspapers in the Help Wanted Section. The company advertises management trainee positions.
According to the Help Wanted ad, applicants for the management trainee positions are required to work in sales positions in order to be eligible for a possible promotion. Applicants are also required to pay a $165 fee for a demonstration kit. The $165 fee is said to be refundable upon reaching office manager status; or, if management is not achieved and the kit is returned, only a portion (pro-rated) of the refund may be provided by the company.
Consumers who have contacted the Toledo BBB have voiced concerns about misrepresentations of the job position, as well as being pressured into paying the $165 kit fee.
Two individuals who interviewed with the company said they were asked to consider buying a franchise of the company.
Another individual was advised that the amount of potential income would depend on placing a similar like ad in the local newspaper, which would bring others into the business.
The BBB has been advised by Anthony Miralia that G&M Marketing is no longer in business, however recent consumer inquiries indicate that consumers have responded to G&M Marketing management trainee positions as well as management trainee positions for Safety Enterprises.
As of June 10, 2009, all complaints will be processed by the Akron BBB, which services the company headquarters. To access the Akron BBB's report, go to www.akron.bbb.org or call 330-253-4590.
