"Allen was a pretty nice man - very smart. So was Bob Lowe. Duane was a little odd but nice. Mike Letts was a good guy"

Allen was two faced he would be nice to your face & call you a hillbilly bumpkin behind your back. Also he could spin some B.S. but he had no idea how the products actually worked, or didn't as the case may have been. Bob wasn't there long enough to matter, & Mike was totally clueless. Duane was the only one that I didn't see screw over anyone, but I might have just not seen it.

Allen could explain the technology better than anyone that ever worked there. He was the President of Technology you know. I never heard him make fun of anyone. In every situation I ever saw, he was a peace maker not a trouble maker. Allen was not a transplant from a big city. He raised his family here. I never saw him make fun of the people here. And I don't know an executive who doesn't spin some BS.
Bob could have straightened allot of things up around there if he would have been given enough power. Mike Letts was an even keel, but all ideas had to be Mr. Jacksons or the idea was thrown out. So everyone there always had to figure out a way of getting an idea to MJ so that he could make it look as or think that is was his idea. It was rediculous! Remember when they brought in Daryl Jackson ?(no relation to MJ) He was there about 6 months and Mr. Jackson apparently felt threatened and they gave him the boot. But they still had to pay him the huge salary for a couple years per his contract.(Another huge waste of money) If MJ would have let him do his thing he may have done allot good for the company. Just another stupid decision from someone who only thinks with his ego.

Alan Johnston is now with another technology company. He is doing well.

There was a lot of intrigue with many of the master managers. Lots of fooling around, divorce, and all kinds of back stabbing and down line stealing. It got to a point that I just gave up on the idea of staying with Ecoquest.

I knew the end was near when they started selling cooking pans and coffee.

Many of the other managers got a little sick and tired of hearing about how Mike was a bus driver and how hard his life was. I think that his story was just that. To tell the truth, I met quite a few managers who feel the same way. They just did not care for Mike and his attitude.

Maybe there is justice in this world after all.

I hate slander .The one who is without sin may throw the first rock.
Its Gods business to judge.. and people think about why would he pay his mistresses to cover what ?what everybody knows. Its not so much about what he does or did but what we do in our lives and what we learn from others failures and mistakes and weaknesses. Freedom of speech ,if we get harmed...I like to look at my live and we can not change what people do but we can decide what kind of people we are. I experienced many things like with the machines or not replaced water systems but to buy into that costs me good times with people who care and .. but what it really is is pain and disappointment of betrayal and of selling a dream which we bought into.

I miss the cooking pans the oil i thought its a great idea if all the dealers would have bought and shared it with others it would have worked. From a business point but the idea alone in a direct marketing system does not help ..And Im not a friend of him but business is business.

EPA and HHS should have shut the doors on these guys for the ridiculous and dangerous product they sold.

Beyond that, Multi-Level Marketing schemes are not solid business models aside from the guys at the top of the pyramid. Everyone else gets stomped into the dust and suffers, while the guys at the top (MJ) get to pad their pockets with a rather nice golden parachute and set up shop again doing more con-man games like selling "Air Purifiers" that spit out toxic fumes that can make health conditions much, much worse or create ones all in themselves.

How Greeneville became a haven for these charlatans I'll never know, but they are still to this day popping up.

What was the stupid mans name they brought in from Chicago. You know he had the buck teeth, gray hair and had a office up front. Anyway I was a customer service rep and when they had one of their conventions a dealer had brought in several units for exchange as they werent working properly. The dealer told another cs rep that he had talked to the two ladies in the Returns Dept and they were exchanging his faulty machines with new ones and anyway the stupid guy with the buck teeth said "oh you are wrong we dont have a Returns Dept". LMAO.. he was supposed to be a brain...to work in the front office and he didnt know we had a Returns Dept. Thats how most of the bosses at EcoQuest worked..they didnt know their arses from a hole in the ground.

Yeah what ever happened to Sherry? Slap on the wrist or what?
I never could stand to look at that straight, half way down her back, bleached totally white hair and her bangs...cut straight across lying flat against her forehead just above the brow line..gah!
I remember when she used to drive that lil' lime green low rider, but last time I saw her she was in a vw beetle.(yellow i think) BTW..someone needs to remind her of her age. Personally, I feel sorry for Mike(he was married to her) and her 2 kids, Tristan and Tiffany, I think are their names.
And for Greeneville, a skate park? Really?
Is there a Topix about Sherry and the skate park drama? I know there's a story about it and wondered if it was here.

Thats him... Don Bennett... dumb ass!.. By the way someone wanted to know the name of the pill head in the Returns Dept. lets just say the initials are JR. Heard that Temela is still working in Bristol but Bob isnt there. Dont know if thats true or not. Bristol and Kathy Greene done Sandy Wilburn dirty and she quit. As far as Anil goes..he was a pure ass nothing more than an ass. I heard Mr Converse said it was the worst mistake he made in his life, selling out to MJ. Heard that MJ and his lovely wife (gag) were now living in the doublewide that Jeremy lived in. The condo in Florids was in her name so when he filed bankruptcy they couldnt touch the condo. As for CS boses. Myrra was dumb and when Linda Bailey got the job it went to her head. Oh well ! They done Althea dirty. It all will come back though wont it...It always does.

Yep it will come back around and I'm going to be sitting on the fence laughing my ass off! EcoQuest was nothing but a job for me until something better came along. Unfortunately nothing better came along but thanks to those aholes I have a degree and a job the actually pays me what I deserve.

It was quite entertaining as to who was screwing who. Also entertaining when a SM would call into CS wanting presidential treatment after they had just talked to us like dogs. Didn't get you guys very far in most cases now did it? We helped make you bastards rich while we made $9 or less an hour. I know one CSR that got one raise in three years and this person busted their ass abd put up with alot of crap! They are laughing all the way to the bank now too. Sounds like the smart ones took advantage of the fact that we were entitled to TRA/TAA. So we got our education's paid for while collecting unemployment. Why because "Everything is FINAL assembled in TN" was biggest load of crap ever. In the end everything was completely assembled over seas. Why do you people think the quality went from bad to worse?
