Mr. good all services,
I worked for a man named Cass West. He is the current owner of "mr. good all services," and my former employer. This company is suppose to be exactly as it sounds, all services provided. When he hired me I was hired into the position of "cleaning supervisor," at a salary of $25.00 an hour. A few days later I come to find out; I am in fact his ONLY cleaner.
I began working for Cass west in early September, at this time he stated he had only been in business for roughly eight months. I found out about Cass West because he hired my significant other to be a plumber on his crew. After working with him for a few days it became apparent he had no source of transportation and I became his personal taxi service; even going as far as picking him up from home in the morning.
The more days that passed it became apparent that there was no organization to this company. [continued below]....
..... Mr. Cass West did not even own a day timer, and would plan a schedule that was impossible for the staff members. We were understaffed and he continued to try to book jobs. This is when I brought a fellow cleaner on board with us, at Cass's request.
With another cleaner on board everything seemed to be going smoothly, until we inquired about pay day. He told us pay day was going to be at the end of every month, with a pay advance on the 15th. We then inquired about potential benefits, which he said he was planning to have by November 2012.
As time went on it became closer to the 15th and Cass mentions we will not be getting paid until the end of the month. When I inquired why he said he didn't have the money because all of his cleaning contracts paid at the end of the month. However I must remind you that he provided many other services which paid him throughout the month. We even provided our own money for materials which he promised to pay back, and never did.
He then ran out of cleaning jobs, and occupied our time with driving him around to run errands. In total I put 900kms on my car in less then a month, driving him around and picking him up. To keep it short and sweet, I could not tolerate the lack of incompetence or lack of organization.
The straw the broke the camels back would have been the phone call I overheard between him and his accountant. His accountant stated he had roughly $800.00 in his business account. This is when I realized I needed to get out, before I wasted anymore time; I quit. Simply telling him if he could gain steady cleaning jobs I would come back to work for him. We agreed upon September 29th to be the official pay date; September 29th came and went with no sign of a pay check.
At this time Cass was still responding to my text messages and phone calls; each time responding with another elaborate excuse as to why he didn't have the money. I then got very angry with him, explaining to him that I deserved the money he owned me. At this time he tells me that he has sent the pay checks in the mail, and we can wait for them. They never came.
ALL IN ALL. This is just a warning to everyone in the Edmonton area to stay away from "mr good all services" and CASS WEST.
