Likely Suspects is a basically a group of old friends that regrouped to have fun again, we have previously lived in both high and null sec. It functions as basically a giant pyramid scheme. We are nothing but disgruntled former employees – failures – angry that we didn’t have what it takes – stuck in our 5-day-a-week jobs, with no control over our schedules – hopelessly making less than millions – not willing to work hard enough to achieve our “goals” or realize our dreams – looked down upon by a group of idealists blinded by a cult mentality – nearly all of whom will never come close to being millionaires in the slave circle, and who will likely find themselves unemployed within the next few months – searching for that stable job they so repeatedly and vehemently scorned.

We get into the field – sometimes it’s a 6-hour shift, sometimes it’s 8; if we’re in Costco, we get the opportunity to work like a full 10-hour day which is really exciting for building stamina, right? But when you actually get there it’s “Ok now I have a leadership meeting, a morning meeting, interviews, and then I go to the field, and then after that I have another meeting with a newcomer.” I think money-wise, it kinda equated to what they said, but as far as the hours you put in, I don’t think they really explained that in-depth.

I was giving it the opportunity to change my mind, in that I was on the fence because of all the things I had mentioned before like I could see that it was manipulating people; I could see that the only way that you could get ahead in the business was by being willing to sort of dismiss your own personal ethics in order to get ahead.

It’s basically the same thing – except you’re going in front of a group of strangers in person, and just have a bigger client base to back your bullshit.

The owners bank on the notion that customers can be talked into buying anything – as long as you can show that person they need whatever it is you are selling: even if they can’t afford it, or really want it. But since none of the team leaders and entry-level reps directly invest any money, and hence do not lose any invested money if they quit, this is not technically a pyramid scheme.
