I saw that they are asking for donations, mostly furnishings, for the guest houses. Wow, never thought I'd see the day. Times must be hard.

I was a manager at EcoQuest for about three years. I was hired by Mike Letz via Allen Johnston (Design VP). Coming from a professional background, I was really wierded out by the pseudochurch atmosphere presented by Jackson and his hirelings. When I was interviewed, not only did Letz tell me that "we often open meetings with prayer". Well, I never saw any of that. All I saw was a desperate, continuous search for the next product to present at the quarterly fandango for dealers.
The employees on the floor were typical Greene County and Hawkins County workers, they work hard and take pride in the product they produce when allowed to.
I was amazed when starting that all employees were told to make eye contact with Jackson when he came through the plant (almost never) and call him "Mr. Jackson". He rarely spoke to me even though I was hired to help pull them out of the ashes after the Fresh Air unit was mislaunched and they were losing dealers, which was their life blood. Most of the upper management (other side of the wall) along the blue mile were desperate to survive in a constantly shifting atmosphere. Most of the employees seemed to do a great job in spite of being led by sociopathic egotists like Allen Johnston and Michael Jackson. Ecoquest products were mostly smoke and mirrors and whether the science really worked or not was dependent upon who you spoke to. It was never explained to me why the EPA considered ozone to be a polutant, while EcoQuest was touting it as the latest health craze.

If Christ was in that organization, he was in the hearts of some of the employees. The upper management as a whole were their own christs. Overindulgence by Jackson, along with his personal misbehaviour brought down the organization. The Multi Level Marketing scheme they had was nothing more than a barely legal pyramid scheme.
I asked Johnston to lay me off in order to go back into real industry. Very wierd place to work, but there were some great people there, as always.

I worked in the office a very long time and you nailed it! Everytime I ran into Jackson and asked how he was he said "How could I be any better?" Made me want to puke.
I PRAY FOR YOU

I just went to elijas harbor religious retreat website and I am just sickened. He couldn't sell his multi million dollar house so he says God spoke to him and told him to turn it into a retreat for christians. Isn't it funny how God always tells Micheal Jackson to make money.
If God really was speaking to Michael Jackson he would probably tell him to sell that ridiculously oversized house and donate the money to starving people.
I am sick of people using God to make a buck. God is not for sale.
You sound like you have a lot of hate in your heart.
Feel sorry for you

Hey Ada, You are a ugly person on the inside. You are so unhappy with your life so you talk crap about other people to make yourself feel good. You sound so unhappy with your life. I feel so sorry for you and will pray for you. You really need to find a good church and accept Jesus into your heart. He will take all that jealousy and hate from your heart. I worked there and they did me dirty, I wasn't treated nice, I got laid off. I am thankful for all the year's I was given a job to go to. I read all your post, you should worry more about yourself than other's. You you sound so unhappy on the inside it's very sad to me because I know you. I will pray for you. Ada, I truely hope one day you accept Jesus into your heart, Worry about yourself and your family not other's you mite find happiness some day.

"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.
I know Duane. He's a really nice guy. He's not really "odd" he's just not from around here. In fact, I've only known him a couple years, but I've always known him to be honest and hard working.

Nope. When the economy starting crashing it killed the company. Nobody can afford to buy a $900 air purifier. Especially ones that cost less than $50.00 to build. But MJ had run the company into the ground anyway. He started sending everything to China and having all the International trips for dealers and huge conventions. And he didnt really have a clue how to run the company. He should have just gone the inspirational speaker route and left it at that. The affairs he had didnt help either.
