*UPDATE EX-employee responds: I am NOT Gil Hunter
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Written by Gil Hunter
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Bull****
I paid for my own food and fuel for the week. When I returned to collect my pay of another $632, I was told by Gil that he deducted the hotel expenses and since I didn't upload the photos on a nightly routine, he deducted 10 hours.
They refuse to pay me and claim that I now owe them money for a job that I did for them. Their own Project Manager went to bat for me stating that they agreed to pay the hotel expenses, and they were also in agreement that I would just bring the photos back or have the other tech upload them since I didn't know how to do it and size them properly. It was bad enough that I had to cover my own food and fuel, but some money was better than none, so I took the job but lost out big time.
I have 2 friends in the telecom business that told me to stay away from Atek b/c they were also under paid and had to threaten a law suit to get anything, and even then it was months later.
This company is bad news..ALL techs be warned! I've also heard Gil talk a lot of garbage and say racial comments in the office. He mutes the phone when he's talking to someone and shouts racial comments, death threats and a mess of other things. He calls all of his employees bad names. He was 2 weeks late getting fiber cable on another job I did for him because he didn't order it on time, whcih had me me running around over 300 miles to complete a job on the weekend when it came in. This guy is trouble.
I work hard for my money and in this economy it's tough to make a living. I need paid Gil!!!
