    Trojan Tool Response

    Trojan Tool regrets that JerryMac misunderstood that there was no opportunity for employment even before he left Salt Lake City for Houston. Upon arrival in Houston, this concept was reinforced to him and we wished him well in his future. We regret that JerryMac finds himself in a tough situation but Trojan Tool never promised a sales position to him. We think JerryMac is an excellent plumber but we seek an excellent sales person.

    Re: Trojan Tool Response

    I have left this thread alone because I didnt want to show any bias either way on this. However, I recently received more information on what really happened. I just wanted to post up here and make it clear that there is more to this than meets the eye.

    In my opinion Trojan Tool handled this one properly. I did not speak directly with Trojan Tool on this but was able to find out some additional information about what happened and they weren't in the wrong on this one.

    In fairness and impartiality that this forum has always tried to uphold please don't let this thread sway your opinion of their brand or of JerryMac. Lets just let this one fade out into history.

    I agree, except for the handshake. In some states, verbal is a contract, but hard to prove, so the Law loves to see written contracts.

    Would I hire a salesman to work in the field? I don't think so. Most salespeople are as mechanically inclined as a potato and as delicate as a little tiny flower.

    Would I hire a plumber to sell nothing but parts? No. Its easy enough to find a plumbing parts salesman. Some plumbers have success as professional estimators, but that's rare, too. We usually end up playing on the internet or down at the bar.

    Besides all that, who would shake hands with a rooter man?

    Well,
    What is plainly evident is that there was a wrong committed and somebody got shorted in the process, what is also evident is a total lack of customer service and satisfaction as they cannot even keep their word with a prospective employee, too bad really.

    What I have learned is this, the best way to hurt a company is by not spending your money with them, free market system is still the best... Cash Is King

    I'll be due up for some new machines here over the next year or so, 'spose I know where I'm not spending my money.

    Have a good day

    How can you take this message serious if it doesn't have name or title at the end?

    That being said, i seem to remember seeing a functional email address for JerryMac that was using Trojan's email server. You can't just make that up, it had to be set up by someone in the company.

    So now, explain why a valid email address was given to JerryMac if there was no intention of hiring him????

    Here was Josh's reply showing what I believe was a valid email address for JerryMac:

    Thanks Jerry... I bet nobody was smart enough to look 2 lines down to figure it out from this.
