    working for a boiler room

    just kinda curious, i used to work at a broker in ft Lauderdale that was essentially a boiler room with a cult-like structure. I'm kinda curious if any of my fellow df members have worked for similar companies and if so what is the most ridiculous thing or things you remember from working at the company. the two things I remember best were that we were never allowed to sit and that the owner thought he was the greatest salesman to ever live and God's gift to man. he would claim things such as Grant Cardone taking sales advice from him and that if you didn't do exactly as he said every single time you would never be able to sell an mca. if you have any funny stories from similar situations or you worked for the company I'm talking about feel free to share your stories.

    Most major ISO shops operate like this, with a cult like pyramid structure where unless you're producing you feel like a piece of shit and once you are producing and have your own reps making calls for you you justify it. Once you move a notch up the pyramid its worth it and your perspective changes entirely

    Wolf of Wall Street is what they pretend it is and what they want to be, when in reality everyone who works in MCA is a schmuck and even top dogs dont make the kind of money being thrown around in comparison, so its essentially a wannabe pretend frathouse

    I worked for a major ISO for a long time and have plenty of retard stories, but I'm saving them for something special I've been working on, and also have no interest in revealing who I am since this is my shitposting troll account and I'd prefer to keep shitposting and being one of the resident DF forum trolls

    At the end of the day everyone is a piece of shit and will stab you in the back given enough monetary reason to do so

    My best experience comes from my brief hiatus from the Merchant Cash Advance Industry..... when I sold replacement windows.

    We essentially raped people, $200 Kensington windows were marked up to $1,200 Plus.

    The whole premise and structure was just incredible. Led by a charismatic (so he thought) CEO, feathered hair and cowboy boots, whom had went to a Tony Robbins retreat and regurgitated everything in just the worst way.

    There was so much turn around at that place, so many customer complaints, lack of service, lack of just everything.

    One of the sales reps was a Crack Head, that made the owner money, but was essentially put on "probation" - This resulted in random urine tests, which resulted in the fucking guy stashing clean urine all over the office.

    Some other funny tidbits, the owner had sconces installed in the office to reflect a "relaxed atmosphere" - and he referred to these sconces on almost a daily freaking basis.

    The manager is an Industry Vet that was well past his prime and seemed to have early onset alzheimer's. He also is the host of the longest running AM "Oldies" Radio show in the county....

    The fuckin place was hilarious. Sales Reps could "discount" the price significantly, and this resulted in customers saying "so, you just tried to f*ck me 5,10, and 20 Minutes ago with absurd prices" - The prices were still absurd.

    The one guy they had that kept the whole operation afloat, was a lifelong window salesman, that honestly was a complete f*cking monster (i've tried getting him to jump ship and do MCA's since i've met him, he is just too used to Windows) Guy would be a monster. He eventually left and started his own Business, I'm not sure how the original place stays in business, they stage "Video Reviews" by offering discounts to Windows, it's the most horrible things you've ever seen.

    The sayings, and the cult like atmosphere is just too much.

    They started doing some weird spirit animal thing (picked up from tony robbins).

    What a shit show of a place.

    This sounds so much like the broker shop i worked at, my first day the owner got "amped" and took a baseball bat to a reps computer. we also had the office crack head who would talk in a british accent half the time to try and get submissions. i had just moved to florida and proir to mcas was in the car business it was a hell of a culture shock to say the least

    My first ISO Shop was actually the shit, started at 19, and hooked me right in.

    Nice ass office, Bently, Benz, G Wagon, littered with expensive cars.

    Standard money everywhere, put on the wall for next deal in, etc, But I ate that shit up at 19.

    The ISO I Started at Employees are responsible for creating countless other ISO shops and funders from people who started there.

    Similar to 2nd Source...just spawned a bunch of ISOs and Funders.

    GRP, UPLYFT, GMF, 2 Shops that Merged and became a WBL Branch... Countless others...that then the shops the original shop spawned, just spawned more and more.
