I worked for octane coffee and cocktails from feburary 2011 till june 2011. I was a server bartender prepper chef dishwasher grocery shopper etc.

In the beginning when i first met Marlene Welch she seemed to be a good person with a great restaurant i had walked in to inquire about employment. she told me she was short staffed that evening and would need help that evening and tocome in on a trial basis to see my par levels by five oclok that evening. I had no proper intrview or filled out anytype of  application or given any resume or refrences. I returned there that evening and worked the evening she told me i was great and could go far in her business. I continued to work for her being paid on a daily basis under the table no paycheck no taxes taken out. After my trial period was over payments went from every day to once a week and then once a month during this time i was cross trained to prepare food and cook the entrees "tapas" for the restaurant. [continued below]....
..... I then was trained to run the bar all self taught out of the book or word of mouth. over time payments stopped coming to me because there was no finances, bills to run the business were more important, groceries or alcohol or beer was needed, live bands had to be paid first and had to wait on credit card to drop to get payment. The tips were all divided each night to the owners  chef and servers and dishwasher. I worked with the company trying to increase clientel for this issue to stop. Over my period of time there were several other problems from other persons not paid wanting their money or bounced checks that were wrote for payment . Over time i was given a key and created my own code for the alarm system. There were several days of opening and closing by myself nine times out of ten there was not a bank to start the day. there was a problem everyday with something or someone and everyone felt the raft or marlenes un- professionalism and non payment . The problems here are that there is no proper hiring or firing procedure no proper payment procedures no proper training procedures for new employees no proper opening and closing procedures groceries are bought at a grocery store like the kroger or food depot not a distrubitor most of the beer bottles and wine are bought from local grocery stores sometimes even the liquor is bought  at a liquor store in peachtree city bills are never paid on a timely matter are almost always late the dining room or kitchen always are not set up properly or up to marlenes standards for the day or night there are never enough employees to have a shift change so i worked from nine am to some times four in the morning that evening and then reture on a daily basis without a day off and most of the tmes without abreak .They also run a second business out of the same location called A Better Ride and also cause problems for that clientell also. There are bill collectors calling on a daily basis and rejected because they have supposedly been paid off and are no longer owed anything. I am currently owed a total of 1165.00 dollars for hours worked tips grocerys out of my own pocket and tip outs that were not given according to paper work and tickets there is not an actual cash drawer or system to keep up the cash just a box for the tickets and cash all in the same place accessible to anyone in the place that works there. i could no longer pay my bills due because of this matter and had to move in to a friends place to seek help financially and am seeking anyone in the area to report her and her company also to see what can be done about this i am currently still owed this amount listed above and am seeking any advise on the matter to get this revolved as soon as possible i have asked others i know to report her or take action to get the word out about this business and any issues they have ahd with Marlene and octane. Thanks for reading ad please if you have issues respond or create a report on it

That depends.

I continued to work for her being paid on a daily basis under the table no paycheck no taxes taken out. "

   I noticed no specific retraction of this statement.    If this is how they really do business, then all of the rest of us tax payers are being ripped off and we thank you for pointing it out.

AUTHOR: lee - (USA)

Previous post on rip off report about octane and a better ride i posted this review after i had left the business and  said alot of things about the business that were said in anger and not thought out clearly and in the best state of mind i realize the business is actually two seperate business out of the same location with two seperate addresses, phone numbers and have seperate books and business plans. I regret that the business relationship and personal relation ended because of this matter over the review that was posted previously  i regret that i made the bad comments with out having the proper facts and reviewed  the statements i posted before I sent the review in to rip off report please continue to support this business and Marlene and Chris welch who are great people with a great place and atmosphere and please disrequard the previous post if there are and questions statements towards this please contact me. We have come to a conclusion  with the financial status while i was there in this business and hope it will better or reinstate our personal relationship as friends and associates. I am sorry if i have caused any bad reputation for this place and hope that people will once disreguard all previous statements from me please thank you
