So, I went into this place for an interview because the ad on craigslist sounds amazing. Beer, Rock Band, and 4 or 500 dollars a week or something like that. It sounded so cool. When I came in, the secretary, which is a a tiny little guy by the way, he was staring at my chest the whole time he was talking to me. And when I say talking, I mean being rude to me. He thought he was hott stuff but I just saw a short little boy.

Then I went upstairs and filled out the application he gave me and he kept walking by me and checking me out constantly like a little creeper. Then I got called in by the boss for my interview who was really cool and made me feel better about the place. But I was still so creeped out by the secretary that I decided to turn them down on hiring me. I gave the boss a different excuse for me not taking the job though.

On my way out the door I felt even better about not taking the job because I heard him talking about how he was "trying to bring in hot chicks that he could bang" and some dirty comment about my butt that I refuse to repeat. 

On another note, I've had friends who took the job even though I warned them about it. They lasted about a week and said that everyone they worked with was really cool except for the secretary guy. They said he seemed like he would pick and choose who he would help with stuff and that he was rude to them half the time too.

So beware when you go in for an interview at this place. The secretary is a creep and a jerk! Who has a guy secretary anyway?

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This was filed by someone who was fired

AUTHOR: Gallery 13 - (United States of America)

Hi. Just to clear things up. I know who wrote this report. He is a man. Not a woman. This report is untrue.  The person who wrote this false claim was let go due to having a bad attitude, poor customer service and theft. Its a job requirement to show up at Gallery 13 with a GREAT attitude. We have a very positive work environment here.  

Scott is a nice person who is very professional and extreamly helpful and supportive to anyone. Everyone here is. We are an awesome company consisting of awesome people. I personally have been working with Scott for 9 years and I know he would never be disrespectful to any woman who either works here or is a client.  

We are in the art business. We work with a lot of interior designers etc. Women dominate our industry and Scott has been in this industry for 9 years. Scott is loved by every person he works with (which is mostly women). This false report was written by someone who tried to scam us and Scott caught him and reported him which resulted in this immature act.  

Please dont judge our business or Scott by this report. Its simply false.
Thank you.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Scott is great!

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

I have worked at Gallery 13 for 6 months and I am a Woman. The above comments simply arent true. Scott has never been anything but helpful to me. He is polite and respectful to everyone who works here. I dont know why anyone would say these things about him. Scott has a girlfriend who comes to all the social events. She is also very nice. Whoever wrote those things about Scott sounds angry at the world. Scott is awesome and Gallery 13 is so much fun.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Far from the truth

AUTHOR: Karmaking - (United States of America)

I used to be an old employee for Gallery 13 and there is not one bad thing I can say about my experience there. The people were great and highly motivated.. I made alot of money in a short period of time but unfortunately I was going through some marriage issues that I had to resolve. Everyone there was very supportive of me including Scott. I dont why anyone would say anything bad about him. He motivated me everyday to do my best and never once flirted or even tried to hit on me. Nice excuse for not getting hired!

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Similar experience

AUTHOR: Anon - (USA)

I had a similar experience with the office-manage/secretary. He was nice at first but started to say really gross things to me that we're borderline harassment. When I left the job because I had to move back north, he actually said 'its a shame because now well never get to f*ck'. I laughed but was really appalled.

The biggest thing was that he'd text me all day, even after work. It was like a stalker. But when I tried to call him to get a paycheck he never answered. Totally blew me off. I had to come in and get the boss to pay me. And even then the secretary refused to admit I had called him. I feel bad for everyone that works there, including the boss, if they knew how much trash the secretary talked about them to cute girls they'd all get upset.

Why my friends left this place.

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I just wanted to clarify and point out why my friends stopped working here. They all said that they left because of the same secretary guy I was talking about in my original post.
