Rips Off The Charities They "Represent" – Please take a look at this: www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/cgi-bin/charitysearch.pl
Then scroll down to "Firefighters Charitable FDN" which is a charity represented by JAK. Notice how much money was collected on their last campaign, and how much money went to JAK. All of it and more! The charity got nothing! And JAK solicits for the Kentucky State Police Association also, and keeps most of that money too. I absolutely refuse to deal with any solicitor from JAK or "Area Services" as they are known in some states where the Attorney General has pulled their license as JAK (so they resurface as Area Services). If I want to contribute to these charities I send my check directly to the charity and bypass the solicitors. YOU SHOULD TOO!!!
Americas Economy IS TeleSales – Millions of Americans of all ages feed their families, pay their bills, pay taxes etc. by working in call centers. In reality people should be more concerned about the ads that run in between your, and your childrens, favorite TV shows. These are the marketers that are fraudulent and crossing legal lines claiming their products have results based on false or intentionally "adjusted" data. No one seems to complain about Banks, Pharmaceutical Companies, or any other seemingly legal American "hustles". So let me ask.... When is the last time that telemarketers caused the U.S. economy to collapse and force us into a recession? Never. In fact if it wasnt for Call Centers/Telemarketing Companies the recession we are currently in would be considerably worse.
I am a life long salesman and have spent the majority of my years calling or managing call centers. I have hired and trained those with disabilities, constuction and other workers who have been laid off due to economic downturns and even those without a high school diploma and helped turn them into quality, tax paying, law abiding citizens.
So if you answer a phone for a living, which many of telemarketer-haters do......maybe you should get a real job. One that takes nerve and a backbone. It may be easy for you to hang up in someones ear or even make insulting comments when you are called, but it takes a real man or woman to (a) understand that you folks are the ones who are unhappy, and in most cases underpaid and (b) forget how rude you are then move to the next contact. Call after call....Day after day.
And just for your information, my first telemarketing job paid $14.42/hour plus commission. That was back in the mid 1990's. Most of you complainers have never seen the money I have from being what you consider a "pest".
Regardless, next time you are contacted by a telemarketer remember that they are like you in many ways. We have Families to feed, We pay taxes and above all.....We are Americans. Simply tell the salesperson that you are not interested and ask them to have a nice day. Your kindness and courtesy will have a huge impact on a complete strangers life. Bless you all.
Where is JOhn Beal? – Hey I stll got My Keller Bucks lol! JAK was the best job i ever had..to bad they left my area..John Keller is a great man!!
A horrible company! – I worked for this company's corporate office a few years ago and the place was dump! The owner was the rudest man I have ever met! He cussed someone out on a daily basis. Not to mention the company receives most of the so called "charitable donations", for administrative fees the actual charity receivesonly a small portion of the donations!
Telemarketing "charity" won't take NO for an answer – Now that I have seen where the other people are who hate JAK I have come to the right place. I am sick and tired of receiving harrassing solicitations from this "fundraiser" company. Every time you tell them no and to stop calliIng, the phone rings the very next day. Sometimes they hang up on you. They don't take NO NO NO for an answer! I am sorry that the do the terrible job of trying to raise money for CHARITY?? The "charities" JAK represents will never get a dime from me because of the tactics they use to get money. I hope whoever works there, and are the ones harrassing me everyday, get a REAL job.
Telemarketing company HARASSMENT – After finally filing a complaint with the Virginia State Attorney General's Office, I have found out that the too-numerous-to-write harassing phone calls I have been receiving since July 3rd ALL originate from this company - JAK Productions, Inc. My State Attorney General's Office called me today to say they received my written complaint form, and told me all of the calls come from here. This "business", representing "charities", has given a black eye to anyone they represent.
From now on, ANY phone call I receive from this company, JAK Productions, Inc, will be dealt with in the harshest fashion permissible by law. I will file a complaint again and again with the Virginia State Attorney General's Office. And now that I know the address of where the company is located, AND the owner/presidnt's name, John Keller, (the "JAK") I will file with the state of Georgia's legal system as well.
I am the owner of my telephone number, which is UNPUBLISHED and UNLISTED and registered with the National Do Not Call Registry. I do not take kindly to the harassment I have received from this company. I am glad some action will finally be taken, and now I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!
STOP CALLING MY HOUSE! STOP CALLING MY HOUSE! STOP CALLING MY HOUSE! STOP CALLING MY HOUSE! STOP CALLING MY HOUSE! STOP CALLING MY HOUSE! STOP CALLING MY HOUSE!
Worst bussiness to work for! – JAK is a joke!The managers are crooked,the employees work hard but its never good enough.The bussiness needs to be proffesional and It's not!The are 2-3 managers that are actually hard workers,but the rest of the managment crew do enough work to get by for the day!The managment are very rude and start scenes with reps.The managment needs to lead by example thats what they are there for and to also fullfill the other obejectives for the day!John Keller really needs to deal with the whole situation!Its a good bussiness and has potential but needs to straighten up!
Terrible company to work for, very unprofessional – I worked for this company and walked out after 4 hours. The Spervisors are very unproffessional. They walk around the floor cursing and swearing. Telling us to do what it takes to get the sale. I have worked in telelmarketing for 8 years now and I have never worked in such a terrible place. Just the other day, One of the supervisors started a fight with a phone rep and caused 3 sup's and 2 rep's to walk out. STAY AWAY!!!
Oh yeah and I'm now waiting for 3 months for my paycheck.
Awesome sales skills – Jak has very experienced fundraisers. A little pushy sometimes, but they do the best they know how to get people to help the organizations on whose behalf they call. A lot of people think it is a disrespectful job, but hey not all of us are setting at the top of the foodchain and we have to do something. I guess until you have done thier kind of work all you can say is what you think. Hats off to Jak. I would recomend this fundraising company to all organizations I know.
Telemarketing calls disgraceful – This company, Charitable Fundraising Offices, calls our home repeatedly at 8 am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This after a long week of working and getting up early to make a living...we get to be harassed by hang up calls from this organization on the one morning we actually get to rest. Information about them is all over the web about these calls. Even after asking to be removed, they still call. Its sad because its hurts the charities.
