NOW TO THE ORIGIONAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Credit Solutions Of America, CS, CSA dishonest w/clients, ripoff for clients, very unprofessional Addison Texas
I worked for CS for 6 months; my first day of employment was 11/27/2007. When I first interviewed there, it seemed like the perfect company to be a part of. I was always told "if you are not good at one position, we'll find a department to put you in."
The first day of employment w/CS, I checked the box that asks if you had a disability. Six weeks went by and I was never contacted by HR in regards to my disability. I contacted the HR department to see if any information was needed. More days went by, and I was told that I had until, March 31,2007, to get certain information from my doctor. There seemed to be a since of urgency at that time. By the time I was told to bring in certain documents, I had missed a number of days and was written up by my manager and supervisor in Support Services..
While working there, I was a member of the Support Services department, which settles accounts for clients who has received arbitrations and/or summons. The department was very stressful at the end. The call volume was high and the manpower was low.
I turned in a request for vacation time when I was still working
I missed the last week of March 2007 and returned to work on April 17. I had a doctor's appointment on April 18th, and my doctor took me off work again until May 2. Before missing five weeks, I turned in my request for vacation time in the month of June. I never heard back from anyone.
When I returned to work May 2nd, and reported to my new manager's office, I saw suspicious activities between 2 employees. I mentioned what I saw to a few of my co-workers but never to the employees that I saw.
I missed a number of days in my new department due to my illness, but always had a note from my doctor. I made my department manager aware that Settlement 1 was still too stressful and nothing was done. He told me to wait until I got my "report card" in June (a monthly review). That never happened, I was terminated. For the other person, well a new position was created for him. Did I mention our ethnic backgrounds were different? While working in Settlement 1, I also turned in another request for vacation time in June. I never heard anything back once again. I also mentioned to my manager that I had jury duty June 15, and I would bring the summons for him to make a copy. He told me not to worry about bringing a copy. I could not understand why I was not to worry about bringing documents to support that I would have jury duty.
There were rumors around the office that I was going to be "written up" about what I saw between the two employees. But neither members of HR nor management ever contacted me. So, I contacted the head of HR myself and was told that she was investigating the issue, however, I still was never contacted.
May 31, I missed work due to my illness and went to the doctor. While I was waiting to be seen by the doctor, there was a phone call on my cell phone that I did not recognize...I did not answer that call. After seeing the doctor, I was in route home and a call came through from what appeared to be the same number. I answered the call and it was the head of HR who conference the director of settlement in and I was termininated for a poor performance for the last 90 days of that date. However, I missed five weeks of those 90 days.
I would not advise anyone seeking employment to work for CS and anyone seeking relief from debt to contact CS. CS is not concerned about the well beings of their employees nor their clients. There were at least two of us there were very stressed with the department. We both were moved to settlement 1 on May 2nd. The only difference between Settlement 1 and Support Services is that one would assist with legal issues and the other one did not. When the clients fax their info to CS, they receive a generic email from the client services department saying someone will contact them in a few days. Well, the clients are never contacted, and some end up with their wages garnished, a lien placed against their home and/or property and/or a levy on their checking and/or savings account(s).
There were some accounts that were never looked at by CS after the client enrolled in the program until the client(s) called w/concerns about litigation issues.
I was always bothered by the way the client's accounts were/were not taken care of. But what could I do, I needed a job and my medical benefits.
Now, everything is clear, CS did not need a copy of my summons for jury duty or CS did respond to my vacation request, because it was always in their plan to terminate me.
