Beware, you can go to jail for what they do, unlawful trespass/ breaking & entering also carries serious fines. These guys actually bust into businesses (literally try to sneak in undetected) without a solicitation license to sell sh^t out of boxes to people in retail centers, industrial parks, office buildings, and back alleys. Most of the stuff they sell comes from Overstock which deals directly with Fortune 500 companies. So the claim that PPI deals with these companies is an outright deception. These guys are like crime, they don't pay and since you are an independant contractor you have no recourse. Their favorite target is recent college grads who don't know better. They spell their name 'Powerhoutz' instead of Powerhouse to avoid legal repurcussions. On my second interview with this company we raided an industrial park in our 'territory' in Franklin Park, IL, broke into several businesses and got the cops called on us twice. Our 'manager' would just fast talk people and shove the boxes of random sh^t in their face. Most couldn't even really speak English. Since you take the managers car there is no way to really leave the 'interview'. You just play along until you can get back to the safety of the office. ToddWestmont, IllinoisU.S.A. In order to assure the best results in your search: Keep the name short & simple, and try different variations of the name. Do not include ".com", "S", "Inc.", "Corp", or "LLC" at the end of the Company name. Use only the first/main part of a name to get best results. Only search one name at a time if Company has many AKA’s.

I have more inside information on PPI (Powerhoutz Promotions, INC.)I didnt work directly for them, but more worked with them and other companies like them though out the US and in Canada. I worked at a call center, where the resumes are sent when people apply to these certain jobs. My job was to call the applicant and give them our pitch. Set them up on an Interview and never really tell them what the job was for. The call center I worked for was located in California. There is call centers all over the US and Canada who do this. The 'pitch' we use is.......... 'HI, my name is -----. I am calling with (PPI, Premeir, whatever the companies name is we are calling for) in regrads to the Resume you submitted online. Our manager had a chance to go over you resume and wanted to bring you in for an interview.' Now, at this point you have already been lied to. The manager has never gone over you resume, in fact he or she has never even seen it, it goes directly to the call centers. Also we are not 'with' the company we say we are. When you check your caller ID, it will say we are that company, but we use an 800 number's set up for each company we set up interviews for. So if you are being called by an 800 number to set up an interview most likely it is from a call center. The next thing that will happen is the person we are calling will ask something along the line of ' I have sent in alot of resumes, could you please tell me what postion this was for?' This is where we will lie again. We will tell you anything from Customer service to management postion. We will tell you anything you want to hear to get you to go to the interview. you see everytime we get someone to go to an interview, as long as they show up, we get paid more money. One of the biggest thing we use, is when we are asked if this is a door to door selling job, our answer is NO. We tell you we have clients we work with. That is a huge lie, It is a door to door selling. We also tell you it is a monday thru friday job, and it is day shift, here is another lie. It is 6 days a week and about 10 to 14 hours per day. One of the biggest hints that it is us calling for an interview is the morning of your interview we will call and confirm that you will be there, and if you do not show up we will call you again and see if you want to come another time. You will also receive emails from us. But if you look at the emails our address is our name @ some other name for instance something like Anguiano Consulting. Anguiano Consulting is the company I worked for here in California. The call is a scam, the interview is a scam, and the job is a scam.
