Centerplate Plays games with paychecks and doesn't give necisary breaks Frisco, Texas
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Very Unprofessional Staff at FedEx Field Location of Cneterplate - Employee Name: Liz
I started to notice problems with my pay checks about 2 weeks after my first day at work. It took them 2 weeks to get my my check for orientaion, but it took them an additional week to get me my check for my first day of work. This means even though the pay schedule is set up for every 2 weeks they still took 3 weeks after my work day to send me a check for my first day.
They only worked me 2 or 3 days out of the month, and I was paid $8 an hr. So each check was very wimpy.Despite selling products at concession stand mark ups for FC Dallas, they were still very slow to pay.
Upon recieving my second check I was sent an email from Kristi Kunsick, (Office Payroll Manager). It the check you have recieved is invalid. Please return the check to redeem the valid one.
I had to wait untill my next work day to go in the office, because that was the only day they were open. Suprise Suprise, Kristi had called in Sick. luckily i got my check anyway.
I worked 2 days in April. Once April 8th and the other on April 30 (Edgefest 21). I have yet to recieve a paycheck for the entire month. I brought this issue up to several managers, but they derected me to Kristy Kunsick. She was almost never at the office. She was always taking sick days or out of the office for some odd reason. Like the rest of the Centerplate Empoyees she never answers the phone, or responds to emails, phone messages.
When I informed the other managers about this they directed me to the Corporate office. Acording to one manager named Craige it was in Georgia. Scott Purvis However stated it was in South Carolina. Neigther of these managers gave me any contact information for thew corporate headcorters.
A web search didn't pull up any details eighther. However I did confirm through the office at the Dallas Convention Center that the location of the corporate office was in South Carolina. However i was also informed the number for corporate was a toll number. Calling South Carolina from Texas would surely cost at least $300 for checks that were barely more than $100 combined.
The final offense occured on April 30. They forced all employees to arive at 8:30AM and clock in by 9:00AM. They made us Park a block away despite ample parking spots. The managers had promised us a schuttle to take us back and forth. However they didn't send the schuttle out untill almost 11:00. That means they forced us too walk back and forth about a block to get to our car. I left my serving badge in my car, so instead of making a new one, they forced me to make several trips by foot to get it.
My shift began at 9:00AM but didn't oficialy end untill 11:00PM (14 hours). Despite this they only gave us one short break. It was barely even 15 minutes long. I was severley dehydrated and malnurished.
Half way through the day I became dizzy and began to notice an unpleasant sensation in my nether regions. That night i discovered i had contracted hemroids and exaustion from dehydration.
I was fired the next day for sitting down near the end of my 14 hour shift. As if all this wasn't bad enough, they made me drive to work before telling me I was fired.
