  • We rate this company as having an unsatisfactory business performance record based on deceptive advertising practices, and failure to eliminate the cause of their complaints. This company advertises in local newspapers for management trainees charging applicants a one time registration and kit fee which totals about $155.00. According to the company, the kit price is refunded upon becoming a manager. According to complainants, few people ever progress to a manager position. Management trainees are not employees, they are actually sales representatives having a status of independent contractors. Sales representatives are required to sell at least $2000 worth of equipment before being eligible for any kind of management position. Managers are also independent contractors and are personally responsible for rent and office expenses. Trainees and managers are compensated on a straight commission basis. Complainants allege misrepresentation of the job offer and false advertising. Applicants complain no management positions are available, as advertised. Many allege difficulty obtaining refunds. The company responds to some complaints by issuing refunds. Some complaint responses do not adequately address the complainant allegations and are referred back to the company for reconsideration. Some complaints remain unresolved, meaning the complainants are not satisfied with the company's responses. Several complaints are unanswered. On August 2, 2001, Safety Pro was issued a Cease and Desist Order stating, " that a license is required to sell, install, service or hold one's self or one's company out to perform such work on fire alarms, smoke detectors or other electronic protection devices in one and two family dwellings. Any and all sales of electronic protective systems/devices shall cease and desist until such time as a valid license is obtained from the office of the Lousiana State Fire Marshal. We consider this company's advertising to be deceptive and misleading. They do not directly offer management positions. Also, refunds of application fees are conditional upon meeting a sales quota which may be difficult to achieve. Most legitimate jobs will pay you, not expect you to pay for the priviledge of working for them.
