I worked for Professional Events for a while and it was ok at first,but after a while my paychecks were always short and the owner Aron Mezo was very unprofessional!! he would always scam on me and other girls making us feel uncomfortable during our promos..He thinks that he is superior then the models. He likes to make girls work for him by threatening them that if they didn't work an event that he won't pay them any money that he may owe them!! and he wouldn't approve of any of the models to work for any other companies!! that is just ridiculous!!!

He owes me a little over $300 and he won't pay me because i couldn't work an event and i told him that i couldn't do it and he still fined me $100 a day for the 4 day event!!! that adds up to $400!!! so i told him to keep my money and i never worked for him again!! He Emails me harassing letters saying that he is going to sue me if i keep saying bad things about him and his company..Its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH! and i'm not the only girl that he has done this to..there are at least 8 other girls that he has also not paid and sent harassing emails!!! What a Jerk!!!

P.S DO NOT WORK FOR ARON MEZO/PROFESSIONAL EVENTS YOU WILL NEVER SEE YOUR MONEY AND WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH ARON'S UNPROFESSIONALISM!!!!!

you are worng

AUTHOR: Vaporize - (U.S.A.)

your freedom of speech is not guaranteed against an individual, if you would take time to read between the lines it is only guaranteed when directed towards government, otherwise it is considered libel or slander. Someone fell asleep during American Government in high school. You should of gone to work, you knew what you signed up for. I'm sure he owes you nothing and can sue you for your libelous actions.

AUTHOR: Lr - (U.S.A.)

I have been an employee of PEM for 5 yrs and find this absolutely rediculous!!! Once again some stupid girl with no brains didn't follow the rules. She feels she is owed or expects something different than everybody else! The same rules apply to everyone...u no show an event u get penalized! Point is, be reliable and follow through and you will never have a problem! To be honest, AMANDA's help separate the bad from the good models !! By by Amanda so sorry u didn't get your way!!! I would and have recommended PEM to anyone looking for professional, reliable models

#3 UPDATE Employee

Pathetic attack on Professional Events/Aron Mezo

AUTHOR: Fightfortheright - (U.S.A.)

So, this accusation that you have so bitterly written is completely pathetic. I have worked for Professional Events for over ten years and have known Aron Mezo and developed a friendship with him during this time. Never once has Aron ever made me feel uncomfortable or been anything but professional during events. Aron has so many girls that work for him, do you really feel as if you're that special and you're the only one who he's making feel uncomfortable? The type of business Aron runs requires working with a lot of women, girls such as yourself who tend to probably be flakey and once you're scheduled don't show up to events. This is the easiest job I have ever had and it's good quick extra money. If you are a professional person that treats every event you are put on as if it were your real full time job you would have no problems. Calling Aron a jerk, because of the way he runs his business makes you look like a complete moron. If you had any brain in your small head you would realize that this is a BUSINESS, every event that is booked is money not only for you but for the company, if you are late to an event or you don't bother to show up then you are A) not only, not going to make the money you were suppose to but now Aron has to take a cut in his pay on your behalf, you are now costing him money. Plus he also has to make it right for future business with the client. I think before you go around posting blogs or whatever this is on the internet, you should disclose the whole story about yourself, the amount of money you were able to make with Aron and how many chances Aron gave you because you were obviously a flake. Everybody has emergency situations that come up and may require you to not be at an event as scheduled but if this is something that is not constant with you Aron and his office staff are very understanding and will work you and do their best to find a replacement if possible. If you're making money -it's a job, treat it like that and you will be very happy. Don't blame other people for your lack of work ethics. I'd pray if I had a company I wouldn't make the mistake of hiring you. You owe Aron an apology as far as I'm concerned. Go marry a rich guy and never work a day in your life that's probably what you are good for. Sad for you.

Completely False, Slanderous, Defaming & Libel under Arizona Law-posted by fired,unreliable contractor

AUTHOR: Aron R. Mezo - (U.S.A.)

The amount of false information, slander and defaming content this post contains is outrageous. But since this site states it refuses to remove content, even if its completely false and defaming, I will appropriately list a detailed correction and address all points above, in factual format:

Fact: We've has 2 Amanda's that work for us, both in good standing, both live in Arizona, and certainly not in Orange County, or Colorado, or California. This is fake name, fake address, and all probability points to 1 of 2 recently fired models: Bahara Golestani or Natalia Ramirez, hiding behind a fake name and address. Or perhaps a competitor in the market trying throw dirt on our high integrity track record for the last 12 years.

Fact: Professional Events has been in business for over 12 years in Arizona, without ZERO lawsuits against it by its contractors, employees, or clients. In addition, I've had ZERO sexual harassment or reports of the like, and have had over 2500 models work for us over the last 12 years.

Fact: Our payroll is consistently accurate, albeit an occasional oversight as is common in all companies. Any reported paycheck issues are corrected; if we were shorting people on pay checks we wouldn't be in business for 12 years and would have had at least a few lawsuits or formal complaints, as opposed to internet complaints like this that anyone can post under a fake name and hide behind the website's "privacy" policy

Fact: People who have a legitimate beef have many recourses available under law, a small claims can be filed in Arizona for $35, and a civil suit up to $10,000 for only $60. Neither require representation by an attorney.

Fact: I wouldn't be in business for 12 years if I was "scamming" on models that work for us, and I've got hundreds and hundreds that will testify that I don't run my business like that. This is a card the unfortunately unaccountable females sometimes abuse to try to gain sympathy or lend fake legitimacy to their claims

Fact: This model was likely fired for not showing up or backing out of an event last minute, all situations that are accounted for in the contracts they sign, with penalties clearly defined. Problem is many young attractive girls don't know the meaning of the word accountability, and don't know what its like to be held accountable for their missteps or inconsideration. Common behavior unfortunately is to try to place blame or make excuses, and sadly more so these days to try and fault the other person for holding them accountable. It comes from a society of people who grew up watching the "real world", instead of living in it.

Fact: this poster claims to speak on behalf of others - where are all their posts or lawsuits? Fact is I rarely attend any of our events, my female ops director does. Again these are all false claims to somehow portray victimization and somehow lend sympathy credibility to these claims. I've seen plenty of dirtbag sleazy guys in this industry, sorry but I'm not one of them

Fact: I've not emailed any "harassing" letters to anyone- its company policy that if someone breaches their contract or slanders myself or the company in a defaming way, they are sent a warning letter. I challenge this poster to produce copies of the claimed 'multiple harassing emails and letters" - they don't exist- period

Fact: Arizona is a right to work state and I can't tell models who they can work for and who they can't. I can only chose to give work to our model contractors based on performance, attitude, reliability, and making sure they are not representing products or companies that compete with our clients or are considered a conflict of interest. Again this is

Fact: Arizona has laws for Slander & Libel, if you breach them you will be sued. The 1st Amendment free speech rights of our Constitution doesn't give you the right to lie about someone or speak in a misleading or defaming way that harms their reputation or their business- this poster is 100% guilty of this and will be pursued - bet on it

Fact: Any pay ever withheld from a model contractor is under the clearly defined liquidated damages clause of their simple 1 page contract, that they all sign & agree to if they do not show up to event without notice. Again this is an accountability issue, a word in which this poster has never likely learned the meaning of.

Fact: by telling others not to work for me or my company, and in a defaming misleading way, is tortuous interference, and is actionable under Arizona and other state laws- this will be pursued against the poster as well.

If any of these claims are true, I challenge the poster to bring about a suit or use the legal system as its intended, or at the very least have the guts to post their real name; as opposed to posting false outrageous claims and hiding behind a fake name on the internet.
