PRINTING CUSTOMERS DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DEAL WITH A RIPOFF COMPANY? SALES REPS IN THE TAMPA BAY AREA BEWARE. THESE __HOLES WILL PUT YOU TO WORK BUT NEVER PAY SALARY OR DRAW PROMISED.

WORKED FOR THESE JERKS FOR 2 WEEKS FOR AN AGREED UPON SALARY OF 500.00 PER WEEK PLUS MILEAGE OF .21 PER MILE, CAME TIME FOR PAYDAY AND THEY TOLD ME THEY DIDNT HAVE ANY MONEY TO PAY ME- ITS BEEN OVER 4 WEEKS NOW AND NOW THEIR STORY IS THAT THEY DONT OWE ME ANYTHING.

I BELIEVE THIS IS A SCAM WITH THESE FOLKS, THEY RUN AN AD IN THE SAINT PETERSBURG TIMES THAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR SALES PEOPLE.

AFTER YOU ARE HIRED THEY INSIST YOU TURN IN DAILY CALL REPORTS, THAT SAY WHO YOU SAW, NAME PHONE AND ADDRESS, AND THAT WAY THEY END UP WITH LEADS AND DONT HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR TIME, GAS OR ENERGY. I KNOW THEY RAN THE AD I ANSWERED FOR AT LEAST A MONTH. I HAVE SEEN THIS AD BEFORE AND THEY EVEN TOLD ME OF ANOTHER SALES REP THAT THEY JUST DECIDED NOT TO PAY IN THE PAST.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

False accusations

AUTHOR: Neil - (USA)

It is sad that in todays world anyone can write whatever they want about anybody or any company without identifying themselves and verifying all the facts. It appears that there are a certain few who only want to cause great harm to other people and business.

 

This company has been in business since 1998. If any of these accusations were true, we would have been run out of town a long time ago.

 

Many of our customers have been with us for a very long time. They are very happy with our quality, service and pricing. Our newer customers always remark we are glad we found you.

 

As far as our vendors go, everybody gets paid. If we had all these bounced checks no one would work with us again.

 

Richard was hired after representing himself as an EXPERIENCED pressman. After a short time his true qualities became apparent. Most everything he printed had to be redone, some more than once. To cover up his mistakes he started to sabotage the press causing very expensive repairs. After a very thorough examination the repairman, who has worked on this press since we purchased it, informed us the damage was intentional.

 

Richard could no longer cover his tracks so he just ups and walks out only to return in the middle of the night to smash the windows in the company van. (There is a police report on this)

 

In regards to the happy ex-employee, it is strange he does not identify himself.  The only recent ex-employee we have was caught getting high. Several times he passed out while inhaling from spray cans. The last time an ambulance had to be called. Shortly before leaving he got high and drove the company van only to total it. It was later reported that he was let go from other printing companies for getting high there also.

 

Most of our employees have been with us for many years and are very honest and diligent and enjoy their work. Everybody gets paid without any problems.

 

If anyone has any questions at anytime please call us at 727-796-0064 and speak to anyone. You do not have to speak to the owner if you do not want to.
