Pizza Hut on Hannum St., Some things never change.....

I am a college graduate currently working as a delivery driver due to fact that I lost my job in my field of study. Simply put: because of NAFTA I lost a career and had to go back to work at the place that was actually the inspiration for continuing my education. Pizza Hut on Hannum St in Alcoa, Tn, has never been one of Blount County's honorable employers. Drugs have always been part of the mix and at times, I believe that these drug users are actually the type of people that they like to hire in the resteraunt business. You see, these folks aren't very bright and aren't very knowledgeable of things that employers can and can't do. That's exactly what Pizza Hut likes. Most of these drug users don't even have enough money to pursue litigation in the instance that management at Pizza Hut(Ameri HUTS) has dropped the ball.

When I first returned, the general manager actually told me, and I quote, "... nothings changed that much, management still doesn't care about the well-being of it's employees." Irealized at that point, just how far back down the ladder of success that I had slid to actually here a general manager make such a statement.

Things went pretty smoothe for a few weeks, and I actually felt as though tips were better than what they were during my original tour of duty as a driver seven years prior.

On a dayshift tour i went to a house that i had previously delivered to that week to get directions. A young man who was high on crack shoved an old M1 army through the front window on the door uttering gibberish words of what language i don't know. I immediately called the police.

Do you want to guess what happened next? The police did nothing.
Pizza Hut did nothing. As a matter of fact, Jeff Clark the store general manager gave me a hard time about the incident. But luckily, heresay is still heresay, and the laws of the state of TN still apply. Pizza Hut still delivers to this address which is in a run down part of town that has become adrug haven. Had I have known this, I would have refused to deliver the pizza. Jeffwas right, Pizza Hut still doesn't care about the safety or well being of its employees.

When I was 18, I'm now 32, I was working as a driver at this same Pizza Hut, when two men tried to rob me in the parking lot. Instead of just robbing me they decided they were going to beat me up. WRONG! Obviously the two city trash individuals didn't realize that I wasn't from Alcoa, but from Townsend, a mountain community where people are slightly more rugged.

Both ended up in the emergency that night, one for an extended 3 day stay. I pulled something in my back during the altercation on PIZZA HUT property was unable to work the next day. The manager, Richard Vest, again gave me hard time about not coming to work. This is typical pizza hut corporate regime practices. They'll stand on their heads for these trashy customers wanting something for free, but employees are left sucking hind tit. For you folks not familiar with appalachian slang, "sucking hind tit" is an expression similar to S**T OUT OF LUCK.

FINALLY.....

The reason that I am submiting my story to the world, is an incident which happened on the the 24th of April, 2004.

A young man, not paying attention like most his age, collided with the rear end of my truck while I was delivering. Instead of calling the Police which is legislated in this state, he called some of his buddies which were approx. 2 blocks away.

When these 3 hoods rolled up, i realized what was going on so i hopped back in my truck and went on back to the store. This is Pizza Hut policy by the way. On top of that, this guy that rear-ended me, his car was pretty much totaled. There was no damage to my vehicle because of the drop hitch that I have. This is the only thing that resembles justice in any way during this story.

These trashy freaks followed me back to Pizza Hut where on of them was injured. I'm not really sure how. I was never close enough to any of to bust'em one and I think once they saw my size, decided that helping their buddy wasn't worth getting mangled.

Now, this is where my story gets interesting.......

These guys left and in the meantime, the boy who rear-ended me shows up with his mommy and daddy. I thought that I was going to have to whopp his daddy but thankfully the police showed up. I'm sure our paths will cross again in the future.

The mother was immediately arrested due to her behavior. As the police were loading this pile of trash in their cruiser, the vehicle of three shows up. The one big difference was that the driver had dropped of the other two and returned.

The police had a very hard time figuring out just what was going on. With all due respect, most policemen are working with very little mentality any ways. Finally the police decided that i had no done anything wrong and in fact had followed PIZZA HUT procedure. I left and went home.

Six days later i received a criminal summons for assault and destruction of property. A criminal summons is different than actually being arrested and charged with a crime. You see, if the police thought that I was in the wrong they would have brought the charges. Instead these city trash individuals were able to convince a migistrate to summons me. The court date was set and nobody from their side showed up. Imagine that!

Now, here's the real kicker.................

Turns out one of the younger delivery drivers at our store, MATT LAVOY, is friends with these guys and in order to help his buddies out, signed an affidavit that he saw me hit this little fruitcake. Hmmmmmmmm....... But couldn't come to court to backup this lie.

Matt moved here from CA and is a self proclaimed drug addict. His father is a pharmicist in Knoxville, so his access to prescription drugs is readily available. This is the type of witness that attorneys love. Incidentally my attorney is able to prove that Matt was on a delivery according to several statements given by fellow Pizza Hut employees.

At present, my lawyer and I are awaiting a rescheduled court date but Pizza hut Still won't let me come back to work. I am suing all involved for defamation and maliscious prosecution. Arrangements are underway to bring Pizza Hut up on charges of consistently violating state law by not providing its employees with a safe work environment. We shouldn't have to deliver to trash that don't even have the common decency to post their address in front of their residence according to STATE LAW.

Drivers at PIZZA HUT on Hannum St in ALCOA, are sent on other deliveries in high crime areas. A good corporate policy would be that if you have to pass three or four crack dealers on the delivery, then we probably shouldn't go there. Incidentally, Papa Johns and Dominoes will not deliver to these areas. Isn't that great to know that Pizza Hut knowingly sends it s employees into these areas.

I have worked in the corporate arena and never have i seen such disregard for employee safety. But, in order to make these fools see this, you have to hit'em in the pocket book.

Thanks for listening. If you have any questions like me about this shitty deal please call 865-984-4340 and ask to speak to Preston Arnwine. He's the area supervisor who suspended me without pay. By the way, in the state of TN, LAW says that you can suspend someone but you have to pay them. I guess PIZZA HUT doesn't care about the laws in which they operate their restaraunts. They'll soon learn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was expunged from my record, loser.  Maybe you should call Mike Flynn the DA and ask.  Called the Blount County Justice Center and ask for Mike Flynn.  I'm just now seeing these posts and if you don't think that I won, please by all means, expound on what you know out there in Cali.

Nice to see you guys still blogging on this thread. I was very surprised to see that this thread had been added to by OTHER employees of ADF who have had similiar experiences.

I did see an "employment lawyer" and that's why ADF was so eager to shell out some bucks.

Just so you know, The Reverend Raleigh ARNWINE got a promotion after this debacle. ADF.............great company.

Anyways, thanks for the support and kindest regards to ya'll.

Joe... Texas is a long way from Tennessee

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

Joe-

Glad you put your two cents in, and that you had a remarkable experience working for Pizza Hut. I do ask though, was yours owned by ADF companies? Or was it by someone else?

The idea that individual stores can be good is not unfathomable but the topic is more about ADF the company. ADF treats it's employees very badly. Especially Prestine Arwine, and Elaine Lyons. They lie, they steal, they hold people down.

While your experience with Pizza Hut may have been different please don't forget we are talking about local people around the Knoxville Tennessee area.. and How terribly they mistreat people.

Again thanks for your response Joe. It is good to know that people are still hearing about the original author and his plight. I wish the idiots in ADF companies would care to read this and do something about their behaviour.

MY BROTHER HAD A GOOD EXPERIENCE WORKING AS A DELIVERY DRIVER WITH PIZZA HUT

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

Even though he had a standard shift truck and I told him it would not work very well for going into neighborhoods and having to drive slow to look for house numbers, he did very well with them until the price of gass got too high when he had to quite BUT THAT WAS NO FAULT OF PIZZA HUT!

IF HE HAD HAD BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD A MUCH SMALLER FUEL-EFFICIENT CAR, HE WOULD HAVE DONE ALRIGHT! he got incentivs for being safe and always getting the pizzas there on time, nice and hot.

WE GOT TO EAT WHAT WAS LEFT OVER AND THE MANAGER knew how to run a good operation.

THERE WA CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND EVERYBODY GOT ALONG BECAUSE THE MANEGER FIGURED IF YOU HAD TIME TO RAISE HELL WITH THE OTHER EMPLOYEES THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TO DO AND THERE WAS ALWAYS A LOT TO DO AND IF YOU WERE GOOFING OFF --- OUT THE DOOR YOU WENT. EVERYBODY WORKED TOGETHER AND DID THEIR JOB AND YOU EARNED YOUR MONEY IN THERE. I MEAN YOU REALLY EAERNED YOUR MONEY IN THERE! IT GOT SO BUSY, I WAS EVEN CALLED IN TO WORK THERE PART TIME TO HELP OUT!

THE FOOD WAS GOOD, HIGH QUALITY AND I STILL KNOW HOW TO MAKE A GREAT PIZZA TO THIS DAY. I DON'T THINK IT WAS YOUR TYPICAL FAST FOOD WORK EXPERIENE NIGHTMARE -- YOU JUST DID A HIGH QUALITY JOB, PUT OUT A HIGH QUALITY JOB AND ABSOLUTELY NO SHORTCUTS -- NO SMOKING ANYTHING -- NO CIGARETTE ASHES IN THE FOOD OR ANY OTHER NONSENSE.

THAT PLACE MUST HAVE MADE PIZZA HUT A LOT OF MONEY! IT WAS ALWAYS FULL AND MY BROTHER WAS ALWAYS GETTING CALLS TO DELIVER THE PIZZAS.

HE WAS SAD TO QUIT BECAUSE THAT YOUNG MAN LEARNED A GOOD WORTH ETHIC IN THERE THAT YOU DON'T SIT ON YOURS AND LET SOMEONE ELSE DO ALL THE WORK.

THAT MANAGER WOULD HAVE DONE GOOD THINGS NO MATTER WHAT INDUSTRY SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN. EVERYBODY GOT TREATED THE SAME AND IT WAS JUST A GREAT EXPERIENCE.

OF COURSE, THIS WAS IN TEXAS. THE STORE WAS ON SOUTH LAMAR AND I THINK THERE IS A BLUE TEQUILA BAR LOCATED IN THE OLD SPACE NOW UNLESS THAT'S GONE TOO...

PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN HOW TO WORK.

THE MANAGER MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE AND I REALIZE THAT IN THE FAST FOOD BUSINESS, YOU CAN GET ALL KINDS OF FOLKS WITH VARYING ABILITIES!

I GUESS WE JUST LUCKED OUT.

I WAS JUST WAITING FOR MY BROTHER IN THERE AND THE NEXT THING I KNOW, I HAVE FILLED OUT AN EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION AND THE TAX FORM AND I AM BUSSING TABLES AND LOADING THE DISHWASHER AND SCRUBBING POTS AND WAITING TABLES AND WHATEVER NEEDED TO BE DONE! IT WAS A LOT OF FUN FOR ME IN THERE TOO.

I STILL LIKE TO EAT PIZZA HUT PIZZA AND THEY HAD THE BEST CAESAR SALAD I HAVE EVER EATEN. NOW THEY HAVE PASTA AND OTHER THINGS BUT I STILL JUST GET THE PIZZA...

ADF Lunacy Continues to this Day.

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

I currently work for adf companies, at a store, who's location I will not reveal at this time. I really wanted to do most if not all of this anonymously because I am already in fear of losing my job.

One thing I will say about ADF, ,PRESTON ARWINE, and The lot is that they are remarkable at keeping people afraid to fight down. I know someone who has been with this company for a very long time. This person has worked their rear end off, to try and make the company happy. I mean literally this person has stayed over 24 hours straight in the store just to make it clean and presentable to the company owners who care more about their cleanliness inspections than they do anything else.

There are many things that I could say about the company and their lack of care for their employees, but that was not the point of my response.

I applaud you Aaron for taking a stand against the company. For taking a stand against a group of people who care much more about the dollar signs in their paychecks than they do the people putting them there. Again I reference my friend mentioned above who has worked for the company for so long. This person now runs a store, and if you were to see it, you would see it is the store the company forgot. This is truth not just plain conjecture. ADF companies are racists. The Pizza Hut in question was a cesspool of drug runners and addicts, and laiden with vermin when my friend took it over. After many years of working with it, my friend has finally began to see the light of day with sales going up, and even employees being recognized by "Preston Arwine" himself.

Still the store my friend manages is forgotten by the company. The make table is old, and decrepit, falling apart every time someone closes the lid in -not the exact correct manner- The employees though treated well by their RGM, are berated and not just let, but held down by their Area Coach Elaine Lyons. Who actively prevents the promotion of employees. Citing one small hiccup or another as a reason to prevent someone who has worked for their company for over five years a promotion based on the idealic principal the he is a black man. ( conjecture there) They continue to push their employees to do the "right thing" but that is blown to hell the first time " the right thing" interferes with money in their pockets.

It truly does all come down to money with ADF companies. A report came to me very recently that a driver was fired from his job because his insurance had lapsed, and he was still driving. We can't always afford to make payments on our insurance and if something like that is a requirement, couldn't adf, find a simple means of providing a low cost insurance to their drivers. Something that could be taken out of their pay checks( something of course that only covered them while at work.. We had something like that for Football when I played for my home town team)

These lying.. Fillanderers have mistreated far to many people to count, and have gotten away with it for far too long. I was glad to read that Aaron was compensated for his time, and while he may not write bad things about ADF Pizza hut. So long as they continue to treat their employees like trash. I believe the world should know.

I want each of you to take a test for me. Walk into any Pizza Hut in Knoxville besides the Asheville Highway one. ( Do this several times) take pictures of the employees there. You will see them wearing fancy new uniforms. Little black numbers that look quite comfortable and groovy.. Then walk into the Asheville High way store and look at the dregs these people are forced to wear. That same old red and black cotton thing that itches, and stains, and never fits propperly.

Ask the employees there why they are wearing those uniforms, and the answer will surprise you, or rather would have had you not read this. They are the only store in the company that has not been given the new company uniforms. They are the only store in the company that is not aided in some way by the things that the other stores in the company are aided.

When the Broadway ADF pizza hut closed down It's delivery area was dispersed amidsts the stores closest to it.. All but one of them that is.. Powell got a rather large delivery area.. Millertown pike. ( quite possibly the nastiest store in the bunch) got most of the broadway delivery area.. And one other store I can not quite remember got the rest of it. Who didn't get any of it? The only store that was less than ten minutes drive from the Broadway Pizza Hut. Asheville Highway. It, and it's crew, who I will say are all quite competant at what they do, and have been trained well by their manager. Are the store and crew, that ADF Companies, Elaine Lyons, and Preston Arwine ( who is now in a position much higher than that of an area coach) have forgotten.

I don't know who in that store will be the next to go. It will probably be a delivery driver, I know there is one there that really gets Elaine's bodice in a buckle because he is not afraid to speak his mind. He'll remain nameless too, but it wouldn't surprise me if Elaine, or Preston who have no sense of loyalty to the people who work under them do not fire him before the end of the week. They might even think I am him if they read this.. I'll laugh if they ever find out I am not.

Down with ADF.. They truly do treat all of their employees.. Even the ones who really like their job and want to be with that sack of crap company until retirement.. Like crap.

Thanks ADF.. For giving us all something so disgusting to talk about. Let's hope you take the matters learned here and move on.. Because it is not going to stop with Aaron. As long as you have bad employee to employer relations.. The fight will be brought to you.

Thank you Aaron for your resolve in this matter and for not losing it. Thank you for being a champion not only for your own rights but for those of others. One day, I hope Justice is served to the upper management of the ADF company and they realize that the people they kept down, are the people who really made a difference in their company.

The situation I'm in.

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

David, if you'll notice there's a time and date on the left hand side. This Situation at the Hannum St location happened nearly 3 years ago. I won my court case over a year ago. So now we're going on 4 years past the time all this garbage happened. Do you understand?

As far as the situation I'm in, I'm now employed with a locally-owned media company. I am the Lead Installation Manager for LED based information boards such as the jumbo-trons that you see in sports stadiums and on billboards while you're driving down the interstate. I'm talking anywhere from $30k to $250k pieces of equipment. I'm using my degree and am completely happy. Just thought I'd let you know about my SITUATION since you are so concerned with people's SITUATIONS. You do what you have to, to pay the bills. Understand?

Thanks again for the bogus advice. I'm sure I won't use it.

Who's this guy who says he's surprised that I won? I was RIGHT. People who are RIGHT win in court. It's not brain surgery. Judges have to go by the letter of the law. It's the DA's office (Mike Flynn) that is the downfall of the Blount County (IN)Justice system and the ones who trampled my CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

Nobody said that they were going to sue me either. Nobody really has any grounds to sue anybody except me. I'll let you know if i decide to keep some lawyers in business although I don't see it happening.

I'm just happy that this situation is behind me. I'm proud of myself for "sticking to my guns" and having the patience to see a bunch of fruitcakes make complete and total idiots of themselves. These total idiots include: Robert Headrick(prosecuter), Mike Flynn (DA), Diane Lavoy(white trash from AL), Nick Lavoy (Diane's son who is now missing a toothe), Preston Arnswine (ADF) and Matthew Taylor (drug addict extraordinaire).

A special thanks goes out the RIP OFF REPORT. These threads had ADF and the DA's office rattled. Good JOB!

Obviously David, you misunderstood.

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

I wasn't looking for a carreer with Pizza Hut, just part time employment on the weekends to make some extra money. Get your facts straight. There's lots of college graduates delivering pizza nowadays. This is TN, not anywhere else. Different regions have different industry. Do you not know that?

Also, I was not made aware of the house being a crackhouse even though ADF knew. How would you know? I assume that most crackhouses don't have a neon sign stating what goes on inside; maybe where you're at but not here. You need to learn to read more carefully.

Thanks for adding absolutely nothing to this thread, David.

Lastly, I won my case. I settled with ADF. They made themselves look extremely bad in the process. I was completely in the RIGHT. How hard is that to understand? It doesn't matter what YOU think. Your grand suggestions and observations are bogus and wrong. My actions aren't the ones to be questioned.

David, do you work for ADF, YUM or one of their franchises?

Rather surprised by justice...

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

Interesting reading this 'story'. I am happy you ended up actually getting something. America is no longer a country of law. The politicians are mostly law school graduates, where they 'learn' to lie 'correctly'. Thus, called 'prevarication' or misleading. Woe to you lawyers, said by someone who should know. Judges are perhaps not as corrupt as politicos, but they are down there. Actually, I am SURPRISED you won. The losers apparently are not in bed close enough to our owners. But even the worst have to do the right thing occasionally to point out the good they 'always' do. The best lies are 99% true. I would suggest that you need to make a hasty exit next time, to avoid this common crap. Find employers with integrity, and honesty. Maybe your old friend who said he'd have hired you. How is your new job going?

If you are college educated and the only job you can get where you are living is a driver for pizza hut, a company that you already knew wasn't high on employee morale, then you kind of get the situation you are in now.

Update: Hannum Store engaging in sale of child porn

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

I'm going to say that I was forced into signing an agreement with ADF. The sum of money they paid me (less than $20,000) was enough to keep me quiet I suppose.

I still think all the people there are low lying toilet scum. Oh yea, the Hannum street store is now engaging in the possession and sale of child porn. Preston and Matt are in on this, selling videos and pictures. It's only a matter of time before they get caught.

Apparently Matt's friend has a younger sister who he likes to fondle. She's well under the age of 14 years of age.

Outcome

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

Aaron got everything that he wanted from ADF. They buckled under the pressure of a lawsuit after the case was over.

Aaron had to sign a confidentiality form stating that he owuld no longer "blog" bad comments about ADF. I didn't.

ADF is a horrible franchise to work for. They really tried to screw Aaron, but in the process ended up only screwing themselves. At the very least, this situation made the top brass look like a bunch of sniveling school girls.

KUDOS for Aaron. By having a little backbone and common sense, he was able to beat a bunch of drug addicts at their own game.

PS Just so you know, The ADF Pizza Hut on Alcoa highway got busted for selling alcohol to minors. Sounds like Preston really has control of things.

ADF is the ENRON of Pizza Huts!

ADF, Mike Ryan are still pulling the same old smoke and mirrors

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

After finding out that my attorney hadn't contacted ADF in several weeks, he was informed that his services were no longer needed. I don't blame him for not wanting to fool with any bone-heads at ADF, then again, he is a lawyer.....and how much lower can you go?

I contacted Mike Ryan personally to let ADF know that their terms for me being able to recieve my backpay were acceptable. That was 3 weeks ago. They (ADF, Mike Ryan) are still pulling the same old smoke and mirrors "feet dragging."

Mr.Ryan (ADF HR Punk), assured me that my check would be here by today. I recorded our last telephone conversation so that I want would a record of the agreement just in case ADF tries to back out of the deal. I want to remind ADF that in the state of TN, A VERBAL COMMITTMENT IS A CONTRACT. There's no if's, and's or but's about it.

I just wanted to make it clear that I was trying to put this situation behind me and I would hope that ADF would want to do the same. I was a complete gentleman and was very open to hear ADF's side of the story which was mostly denials and lies. I've become used to that type of behavior from ADF(a company of American Huts, Inc.,which is a franchise of Pizza Hut and Yum, Inc.)

I don't know what else to do except get another attorney and start calling in bogus orders to the 4 ADF Pizza Huts in Blount County. I also now have a list of some of the more important people with Yum, Inc. and some of ADF's silent investors.

If they wanted trouble, now they have it!

Once again, all that ADF has to do at this point is to uphold their end of the deal. I now have their promises in writing. They still have a chance at getting this RIGHT. All they have to do is pay me and this whole situation is over. Otherwise, ADF is gonna have to buy some helmets because things are going to get rough.

I'm still waiting on the folks at ADF American Huts to get their math right. Seems that it takes deralicts like these commies some time to do simple mathematic equations. What I'm hoping on is that they want to argue the point and then we're just going to go and file suit. I'm tired of playing games with a bunch of horseshit pansy-a**ed pu**ies from ADF American Huts.

I spoke with my attorney and the Governor's office yesterday concerning this situation yesterday. No matter whether ADF American Huts Pizza Hut pays me or not, they still have some criminal issues to take of with the State of Tennessee. I'll see to that personally.

I forgot to tell you that PH wants me sign a form BANNING me from ever working at an ADF American Huts store again. They keep forgetting that I was vindicated in a court of law and through Preston Arnwine's own mouth came the fact that I broke no company policy.

My lawyer and the state of TN says this is DEFAMATORY and LIABLE.

I'M NOT SIGNING ANYTHING EXCEPT A RELEASE FOR MY BACKPAY. IF THE MORONS AT ADF AMERICAN HUTS WANTS MORE THAN THAT, THEN THEY'LL BE LOOKING A LAWSUIT IN THE EYE. WHO DO THESE S**T-HEADS THINK THEY ARE?

Oh and by the way, according to the last letter, area coaches really set no policy whatsoever within ADF American huts. Their word isn't really worth anything. So the next time that Preston Arnswine asks you to do something, tell him to kiss your a*s. He's not a man of his word anyways.

Update I heard from my attorney today

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

I heard from my attorney today. He said that ADF American Huts has made an offer but wouldn't expound on what the offer was. He wanted me to read it for myself.

My expectations are very low of ADF American Huts so I'm probably going to have to sue them. I'm more than prepared with various audio tapes of Preston's promises not only speaking to me but other employees at Pizza Hut. I've also got all my paperwork concerning my tips. It generally ran about 4% of the total pizza deliveries. When you're dealing with $1000.00 or so dollars worth of pizza in a 9-10hr shift, that's a pretty good chunk of money.

I can't wait to see what the buck-passers at ADF American Huts and their risk management people have offered. I'm sure it's not what they owe.

I heard the other day that the security door at the Hannum St. store is broken and for all practical purposes isn't functioning as correctly. Anybody could just come in the door.

This door problem is just one more instance of ADF Pizza hut not giving a s**t about the safety of its employees. They, ADF (The Company),have a track record of placing the lives of their employees in danger like this. Good Job, Dumbasses!

Judge Thomas. I had him pegged wrong.

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

I feel as though I need to set the record straight concerning Judge Thomas. I had him pegged wrong.

Although he is a liberal democrat who believes in bullshit causes like banning the Rebel flag, when he is in the bench, he puts all that liberalism aside. He's definitely got my vote from here until hell freezes over.

Judge Kelly Thomas is the definition of "good government." At one point, even he was chuckling concerning Little Bobby Headrick's behavior.

Too bad that all liberals can't be like Kelly Thomas. I made it a point to tell him how much I appreciated his "non-partisan" attitude when he was on the bench.

I also made it a point to shake Robert Headrick's hand but he was too chickenshit to at least show a little class. That's expected from pansy-assed cowards like himself.

Several days later, I saw little bobby headrick in the Justice Center and spoke to him. Needless to say he didn't speak back. What a twinkle-toed horse's a*s!

I found some stuff out about some of the other people working for the Mike Flynn Gestapo yesterday that was absolutley astounding: drug abuse and bribery. Once again, something that is to be expected from such a chicken-s**t organization.

The court baliff really gave him a dirty look concerning his appearence. Such is the way of the drug addict. The worst part of it was the he was representing ADF Pizza Hut's example of an employee. Nice Call, Preston!

Needless to say, his testimony was out of whack! From what I understand, he is going to be charged with perjury. Perjury, or lying under oath, is a felony. I hope he has to deal with 22 months of feet dragging. After he is convicted, I will be suing him for liable and slander.

I wonder if his current employer knows what kind of idiot they've hired? If not, I'm sure they will. Remind me not to go to any Weigels in Knoxville. They evidentally like to hire drug addicts.

I've already been in contact with the Knox County Police to inform them of what they have living and working in their jurisdiction: Matt "The Rat" Taylor, an honest-to-God dipshit and extortion plott engineer.

Now, we'll see if ADF makes good on their verbal contract with me. We are prepared to absolutely sue their asses off if they don't.

The jury deliberated for a grand total of 32 mins before rendering their verdict.

The prosecuting attorney, Robert Headrick, made a complete and total jackass of himself. He's a pansy-assed b***h anyways and most people in this county think he is "light in the loafers."

I made him look like the chickenshit fascist that he is. He really lost his cool. How bad of a lawyer do you have to be to work for the government and not yourself, anyways?

I have been in contact with his boss Mike Flynn about his intolerable actions in court yesterday. I'll let you know what happens. If I can get ahold of the court transcripts, I will submit to the ripoffreport so that you can see me at work putting underhanded prosecuters in their place.

At any rate, I will say this. Preston Arnwine attended the court proceedings, as he should have, and was a complete and total gentlemen. The only problem with Preston is that he answers to a bunch of horsehit yankees in New Jersey(ADF, the company.) I've often said that money is the by-product of compromise, not success. If you are willing to buy into ADF's communistic philosophy then so be it. I just want to leave this world with my soul intact(SP?), not thoroughly chewed by underhandedness.

God Bless the Ripoffreport. Thanks to everyone for their prayers.

I'll let you folks know how ADF handles their promise.

By the way, it came out in court that my accusers were a bunch of trash from Alabama who moved here to get on TennCare. I called it! Here we are 5 years after the Don Sundquist regime was run out of office and people like me are still paying for his mistakes. He should be tarred and feathered.

May God Bless Ya'll!

Robert Headrick is a pansy-assed twinkled-toed b***h! He wouldn't even shake my hand after the case was over. What a deralict!

I found out that not only is the judge a liberal democrat but that the DA's office is a bunch of liberals. Everything is starting to make sense. This is politically motivated.

I have become increasingly critical of our local government because they no longer represent the people and especially critical of our local pinko whinin' liberal crowd.

I was instrumental in fighting to keep the Rebel flag flying high at my alma matre Maryville High School. Judge Kelly Thomas and Mike Flynn(DA) were part of the other crowd. This makes so much sense now because this is the way that coward liberals fight their fights: COWARDLY!

Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh! I'm so excited! I wish we could go to court today but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what BS these pansies are going to pull.

Robert Headrick has already called my lawyer today and tried to weasel out of going to trial tomorrow. It's time to put up or shutup, Robert! You've already wasted enough of the taxpayer's time and money not to mention my time and money.

The DA's office is grasping at the proverbial straws of idiocy at this point. I might just decide to organize a picket in front of the Justice Center on our public sidewalk damning the DA's office after I win tomorrow.

May God have mercy on your worthless liberal souls! And may God save all Blount Countians from this fascist liberal court system.

I hope that next November there will be a new sign in front of the Justice Center which reads: "Under New Management."

The Blount County Judicial System sucks!

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

Once again my case has been re-scheduled to Jan. 25, 2006. That makes a grand total of 8 times that I've had a court date and the DA's office were too chicken s**t to try the case.

When I was given the last court date (Jan. 17), I was told that my case took precedence and would happen on this date. Obviously, Judge Kelly Thomas is also a liar just like Robert Headrick in the DA's office.

This is a voting year and I plan on making it a point to keep Tom Hatcher and Kelly Thomas from getting elected.

See ya on the 25th!

Man, you've really got Preston Arnwine shaking in his little pansy pink boots.

This guy has gottin away with this crap for too long. I have worked for PH for almost 6 years.

If you think your situation is bad, you should check out some of the other stuff that ADF Amerihuts has done in your area.

I am almost finished with college and will drop PH like a hat as soon as I can find employment in my field.

Aaron, you really need to push the sexual harassment deal with Bethany. This has Preston and his bosses more worried than anything. I have even heard about this s**t at my store. You should call Preston today and tell him that you want to file an employee complaint against her and that you will be seeking compensation for having to deal with a w***e in the workplace.

I hope this isn't true about your attorney. If it is, I am sure this case is over.

Keep on fighting the communists at Pizza Hut on Hannum St.!

Aaron... I hope Judge Thomas has seen this thread.

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

You need to look deeper into the relationship between Robert Headrick (DA) and Kevin Sheperd (your attorney).

I'm sure that if you talked to some of the women who used to work for Kevin, they can tell you all about his escapades in his office. They all quit because of Kevin's homosexual relationship with a man in his office. That's real professional! You probably didn't know that Kevin swings both ways did you?

From what I hear through the grapevine, Kevin and Robert have a thing going behind the scenes and Robert is married also with kids. If you could prove some sort of illicit affair between the two, I'm sure that Judge Thomas would throw the case out due to "conflict of interest." But in this case, it would be "conflict of queers."

There trying yo screw you man(not literally of course). You were right when you made the statement about the lawyers making money. This is the little game that these fiends play while the rest of us foot the bill. What a county!

I hope Judge Thomas has seen this thread.He probably doesn't even know what has happened with your case concerning all the inconsistencies. If he knew what kind of extortion that is taking place, he'd throw it out.

I realize that I am not from TN nor am I familiar with how TN courts handled criminal cases, but this seems like common sense to me.

The alleged acts occurred over a year ago. The DA has been stalling bringing this before a judge and jury. I've seen motions to dismiss granted in cases like this.

Do yourself a favor and find out why your attorney hasn't filed a motion. This is beyond nuts. Does TN have time standards for court cases? If you don't know what that means, ask your attorney. He/she should know.

Just another update: some guy from ADF in New Jersey sent me a letter trying to weasel out of the back pay issue

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

My trial was reset for July 8th and then I was bumped again by our sorry excuse for a justice system due to the fact they are lazy and very poorly managed just like ADF. I have, however received another court date for September 1, 2005. Isn't this situation just wonderful.

Just so you guys know, some guy from ADF in New Jersey sent me a letter trying to weasel out of the back pay issue. Not only did this idiot validate the original deal made with Preston Arnslime, he unknowingly sent me the proof by cerified mail. What an idiot! No wonder ADF is such a sorry-a** company. I immediately sent a copy of this letter to my attorney who let this Jerky Boy know that he wasn't a lawyer and obviously didn't understand the LAW in the state of TN. What's new, right?

The letter that was sent from ADF also accused my attorney and I of stalling to drag this out. Can you believe that? None of this ever would have happened if ADF was worth a flying sh**!

TO ADF: GUESS WHAT, MORONS? If anymore of these silly letters are sent, I will not only be seeking by backpay but also my tips which YOU(ADF, the company) denied me the right to earn. That's not from me or my attorney. The fact that you technically owe me a fair amount for tips, is straight from the Tennessee Governor's office.

Did you pinheads at ADF actually think that you could pull this off? Did you actually think I'd put up with a bunch of garbage from new jersey? Now that I know that ADF is headquartered in new jersey, I really am going to pursue criminal charges against ADF PIZZA HUT ON HANNUM STREET and Preston Arnswine, too, if need be. If Jeff Clark wants to involve himself anymore, He can just joined the crowd of people getting SUED!

Selling my equity in YUM

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

Dear Aaron:

I found your story while looking for a site in Google where I could file a complaint on behalf of my son. His last two paychecks by the company for which he delivers pizza bounced.

I am sorry to hear of your problems with Pizza Hut, Ameri Huts, district attorney's office and poor management at the same.

I read diligently all the responses and was most impressed with your keeping the respondents focused on the issue and away from meaningless character assasinations of people involved.

To you I say, tear them a new a-hole in November. In the meantime, I am divesting myself of the TriConGlobal (YUM) stock which I hold. I look forward to your updates in November on the outcome of your trial.

Trial Date Set! I just didn't realize they could drag something out like this.

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

Finally, I got a trial date for November 5, 2005. Isn't that great? Seeing as how this supposed crime happened on April 24, 2004, I'd say the DA's office is afraid to prosecute this case. I knew they were cowards, I just didn't realize they could drag something out like this. Ive asked the question before and I'll ask it again: Isn't everyone entitled to a speedy trial? I guess all of us VOTING citizens will have to remember that when voting. Basically what's happening is that they are trying to wait me out. They think I will eventually give in and give these trashy HOME AVENUERS some money. NOT! In the process, this waiting game has seriously hurt the credibility of the offices of Tom Hatcher and Mike Flynn.

Oh well...no big deal...except for ADF who I'm probably going to go ahead and sue. They make you sign a form saying that you will enter into MODERATION with them before you sue them. According to the courts, that's just another bogus piece of paper that means nothing in a court of law. Anyways, I've done about all the MODERATING that I'm going to do with Preston Arnslime. I feel as though ADF and Preston has had plenty of time to rectify the situation. I still have yet to have a conversation with anybody from ADF. But, then again, that's the way they work: COWARDLY.

You probably won't hear too much from me for awhile concerning this thread. I'll check back from time to time and see if there's any new rebuttals. Otherwise, see you sometime around the 5th of November.

GOD BLESS!

Still waiting.... The more time it takes to get this case into court, the more money ADF will owe me for not allowing me to work.

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

My Feb. 7 court date was postponed to Feb. 14. We entered a plea of not guilty at this hearing. Turns out that this was actually an arraingment, whatever the hell that is. I'm still waiting to hear something back from my lawyer about a court date.

At this point, I really don't care how long it takes. The more time it takes to get this case into court, the more money ADF will owe me for not allowing me to work. Currently, ADF owes me for 42 weeks back pay. My attorney informed me that it could take an additional two months to actually go to court. Theoretically speaking, ADF could wind up owing me for over a year's pay. Good.

You guys at ADF really screwed this one up didn't you? It's bad enough that you illegally suspended me without pay, but then you had to go and try to get me to sign something saying that I had done something wrong. You shouldn't have given me a copy of this bogus form. Good job, Preston.

Where's all the folks who work for ADF who have called me on the phone? I must have spoken to 20 of you who work for the same area supervisor. How come none of you have filed your own ripoff reports? As long as ya'll cow down to Preston, nothing will ever be resolved concerning the deplorable working conditions at ADF Pizza Huts in East Tennessee.

This is the Volunteer State, you know where people are supposed to have a little bit of backbone and are not affraid to fight for what is right. If you want to be cowards, then so be it. Think about it!

the first time someone like yourself has stood up to them and acquired a lawyer. Kudos for you my friend!

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

Pizza Hut, whether it is a franchise or company store, has operted in this manner for a long time now. I am originally from Knoxville and worked at one of the ADF Pizza Huts while going to school.

Aaron, this isn't the first time Pizza Hut and Preston Arnwine has acted in such a manner. This is, however, the first time someone like yourself has stood up to them and acquired a lawyer. Kudos for you my friend!

When this is all over with, regardless of the outcome of your criminal case, you should sue Pizza Hut and Preston Arnwine. The inappropriate behavior by Bethany is something that Preston can't weasel out of. Too many people would be willing to testify against her. You should sue Pizza Hut for sexual harassment. If she touched you in any way, whether it be petting or not, you have a case. Especially since this has been brought to Preston's attention on several occassions. I would sue Preston regardless.

Since this incident happened at work while you were on the clock, Pizza Hut is screwing you making you pay the lawyer fees instead of them. They are responsible for the cost of your lawyer, not anyone else. ADF should have offered to pay for your lawyer. They should have at least provided you with a lawyer from their corporate offices.

I really hate that this has happened to another part time delivery person. I'm just glad that it happened to someone who has backbone. Aaron, you teach them a lesson! SUE! SUE! SUE!!!!!!!!!!

I, too, am a victim of Preston Arnswine.

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

I used to work at Pizza hut for Preston. I don't anymore. I got tired of seeing company policies violated by people who did favors for Preston. If you were a girl, and did favors for Preston, you could do anything you wanted. Sounds like this Bethany person has got down on her knees for Preston a few times. This isn not the first time this has happened on Preston Arnswine's watch. He is notorious for this. The only thing ADF understands is when they are getting ready to get sued. Money is the bottom line for them. Employee safety and sexual harassment aren't things that ADF and Preston Arnswine care about.

If anyone out there ever has a problem with ADF, the best thing to do is spend the money and get a lawyer. ADF is banking on the fact that you won't hire a lawyer to see that your rights as a working person aren't being violated. They don't think that you will sue them. Sounds like their whole demeanor changes when you get a lawyer.

Arron, I am anxious to see what happens with your situation. I heard about this thread from friends of mine who work at a Pizza Hut. You have a lot of employees at ADF on your side. They really want to see you get your pay. Since you haven't been fired by Preston, are you considered still an employee? If so, then you are entitled to unemployment compensation. You should have your lawyer call Preston and bring that issue to his attention. Preston knows. You should too. This is just another case of Preston and ADF trying to get away with something.

Good luck with your fight against the evil ADF empire and Preston Arnswine.

ADF is shaking in their boots.

Although I do not work for Jeff Clark, I am still an employee with the ADF chain. Preston Arnwine is our supervisor. I work in a different store than Jeff Clark. I have been with PH for some time now.

This report has really upset ADF and corporate Pizza Hut. It is just a matter of time before YUM gets involved.

I also know Matt Taylor. He is a drug addict. After he was fired from Pizza Hut he got a job at Dominoes in your area from what I hear. Dominos probably doesn't realize what kind of a person they have hired. It's one of the Dominos in Maryville. Everyone should be weary of ordering pizza from whichever place has hired Matt.

I really enjoy hearing about Preston and ADF being afraid. They're also scared that the Bethany chick at your store is going to get them sued for fondling everybody. There was some corporate people who questioned us about her. They are really scared.

Keep up the good work, Aaron. We are all behind you in your fight against ADF and Matt Taylor.

UPDATE on Matt Taylor. I can't wait until he is on the witness stand.

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

I just heard from some of my sources at Hannum St., that Matt Taylor was fired. He evidentally had more car problems while at work which caused him to go into some kind of psychotic fit where he started head-butting his car and tearing stuff up inside Pizza Hut. Well, at least he didn't threaten to kill anybody like he has done so many times before. Matt's situation concerning his behavior which led to his firing will help me in court tremendously. Does the DA not know what kind of a nut they are calling as their star witness?

I can't wait until he is on the witness stand. I'm relatively confident that he will do something ignorant. He may even have a fit like he did last time in court. You would think that the DA would have more sense than to call this idiot Matt Taylor as a witness.

What's really gonna be entertaining is when he is charged with PERJURY after the Feb. 7 court date. A conviction of one of ADF Pizza Hut's employees should make a subsequent lawsuit a sure win if they don't handle things correctly.

I'm anxious to see how ADF handles my pay I should have been getting when this bogus trial is over.

It has to come my attention from an employee at the Hannum St. location, that Preston Arnwine is still scheming to get me in trouble. To him I say: DARE YA!

The cassettes which were given to me by a co worker had some valuable information on them. I listend to them and then burned them. These tapes aren't admissible(SP?) in court unless the actual person doing the recording is involved in the conversation. That means you need to be careful who you talk to Jeff and Preston. The only conspiracy happening here is within your company.

I also got a call from one of the former employees who is Mexican. You all know who I'm talking about. He has hired an attorney and is currently trying to file a descrimination lawsuit against ADF. Maybe I'll join him since I'm a minority too: I'm from here, I'm white and I'm from Townsend in the mountains.

If you would like to contact my attorney his name is Kevin Shepard. He is in Maryville, TN and I'm sure would love to hear from you. Also don't forget to contact Gov. Bredesen's office.

I realize that Maryville is a pretty good ways from Rockwood but it would be worth talikng to Kevin Shepard to get some results out of ADF.

If you know anyone else currently working for ADF who has a problem with management, by all means tell them to file a ripoffreport. You need to file one yourself. The more ripoffreports against ADF on this site, the better. If you want to contact me personally, talk to Ed the editor of this site. I will send him an e-mail and tell him that it is ok.

When given my term form it said I was already terminated to them on the day of suspension?Why did I have to meet answer the phone and deal with all the hurt involved if I was already termed?I was never told that I would not be paid for this time nor was I told that I was terminated until 3 days later.Then I was told that I was to receive 1 weeks pay?No way because I worked 1 day and can prove that I met to save my job over 2 days.

In the policy manual I had the chance to get a hold of after termination it states that suspension is supposed to be a 24 hr period,the one I was fired out of also states that under VACATION TIME I believe you are owed all accrued (earned) vacations.I could be wrong BUT -hey I urge everyone to take a look.

Co-worker #9, I would never agree with someone who spits in the sauce. As I've stated before, I've seen a few things happen, but have never done anything like this myself. I just don't think it's right although alot of the people we delivered to deserved it.

Word has really gotten around town about the Hannum St. location. While running around town, I run into alot of people I know. Quite a few of them have asked me about this thread and what is going on concerning my case. I just tell them that Papa Johns has the best pizza delivery anyways and if they want the best pizza in Blount County to go to Alexandro's. Nobody has Alexandro's beat.

I knew about Susie's accident and have visited her a couple of times. I'm sure it has put a real burden on people at Hannum St. since nobody worked as hard as Susie. I heard they put Shannon in Susie's place with the dough but she couldn't handle it. That figures. That's what happens when you hire a nut to do real work. Of course, NUTS are the kind of people Preston and Jeff like to hire. They like the drama.

As for "spitting in the sauce", that's just something I wouldn't do. It's bad enough.

I agree with you Patrick. if people see the last post, then they will stop ordering pizza from our store

AUTHOR: Co Worker #9 - (U.S.A.)

I agree with you Patrick, that is terrible. The only problem with your solution is that Jeff Clark posts the health inspection on a wall where the customers can't see it. In the year that I have worked there, I've only seen the health inspector come 1 time. In the state of TN you are required by law to post the health inspection sheet in an area that is clearly visible to the customers. This situation is just one more instance where ADF Pizza Huts are in clear violation.

Maybe if people see the last post, then they will stop ordering pizza from our store which in a way would be good. Then again, I would feel sorry for the handful of good people that I deliver to. Actually ADF could care less what goes out the door on their product. Just look at the situation involving Matt Taylor and you'll see what I mean. As long as ADF's profits are up, they wouldn't care if we crapped on the pizza. Of course when Matt delivers you a pizza it's just about the same as a pizza that has been crapped on. He is truly disgusting and so is ADF.

Another thing, every time the health inspector comes, Jeff Clark knows well in advance of his arrival. Then we have to clean like mad for two or three days just like when he hears about corporate people coming. Corporate ADF and the health inspector just can't get a true sense of how nasty our store is most of the time. Most of this nastiness is due to Jeff Clark's and Preston Arnwine's laziness.

Thanks for your comments though. I'm sure Aaron appreciates your support. I spoke with him yesterday with his lawyer. He's pretty fired up. He's got a few things up his sleeve concerning Matt Taylor, Jeff Clark and Preston Arnwine. I can't wait until these three are all brought to justice. ADF just doesn't realize what they are in for.

Hello Aaron and all others,

First, let me start by saying that I FULLY SUPPORT Aaron in his fight against ADF Pizza Hut on Hannum St. I look forward to seeing what happens at your next court date in February. I hope you stick it to them in a big way.

I wish to address the last post by Co Worker #3. I know that this PH and ADF are very bad, but stating that you will be spitting in the sauce is just downright disgusting. Not to mention a health hazard as well. Just think of all those poor people who have no clue what's going on at this store. Do you really want to go to such lengths?

Instead, try to find things about the store's cleanliness to post to help discourage people from eating there. I'm sure that the poor state of management at this store has to have contributed to some nasty Health Inspections. Let's hear about those instead.

Aaron, godspeed, and good luck in your fight!

It really surprises me that someone from ADF hasn't answered some of these charges launched against them on this thread. You would think that if they cared about their reputation, they would. I guess we all should remember what kind of organization we are dealing with.

ADF has never cared about their reputation in the community. The bottom line is money. Money, money, money. Employee safety, quality of the product and fair treatment have always taken a back seat to money. ADF will never comment on this thread because they know all these accusations are true. Either that or Jeff and Preston are lying to them.

I started keeping a log book of Jeffs hours he works. We'll see if ADF cares when they have a criminal case against one of their store managers for fraud. Lying about your hours is afterall considered theft.

And, if Preston and Bethany don't stop screwing around, I'm going to call Preston's wife and see if she knows what is going on.

If either of these two guys had any honor, none of this stuff would have happened including the deal with Aaron. By not having any morals, Preston and Jeff have opened up a whole can worms. Now they have to deal with it!

DOWN WITH ADF! I'm going to start spitting in the sauce everyday, so don't eat at Hannum St. Pizza Hut.

I am very upset to think that this kind of stuff goes on at a resteraunt in my community.

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

I informed the city commission and chief of police what I have read on this site concerning Pizza Hut on Hannum St.

At the very least, this store must be poorly managed. Not only do they let drug trafficking go on in their store, they treat honest employees very badly.

The last time I ate at a Pizza Hut, I swore I would never eat there again because it was so greasy. Now I see that not only their food is bad but so is their management and corporate people.

The thing that really concerns me is that no one from ADF has come on here to post any type of rebuttal against the complaints of their employees. This inactivity just makes me think that they have something to hide. I will never do business at any of the Pizza Hut locations in East Tennessee.

ADF Pizza Huts need to at least provide an explanation to these claims on this thread.

I have worked for this newspaper for many many years. Over the years, we've had several citizens of Maryville and Alcoa call to voice their concerns over the Hannum Street Pizza Hut in Alcoa.

The closest we came to ever doing an article was a few years back when a large cocaine ring was being organized from the Pizza Hut location on Hannum Street. Before we could run a story, the police stepped in and rounded everyone up.

I see now that this location has just gotten worse along with its new francise ADF. I will be contacting these people.

To everyone who has some concern about this issue, please call our offices and tell us of any information that you may have. The more people that call, the more likely we will have enough information to start investigating this business.

We have already heard from several of the employees who work at this location and hope to hear from more. We will be reporting on Aaron's case concerning his accusers and how ADF has mishandled this situation. This should not happen to anyone in Blount County.

Hopefully we will be able to provide a service to the people of Blount County by letting them now what kind of businesses they have operating in their communities. Maybe ADF will close its locations down. Maybe they will have to close down in order to pay any settlements that may arise from any employee suits. I'm glad we can help.

Jeff Clark is a liar and worthless as a manager. Jeff was just trying to ruin your credibility.

AUTHOR: CO WORKER - (U.S.A.)

Aaron, Jeff Clark is actually the first person I heard come in talking about how you had said that everyone is on drugs at the Hannum St. store. We all know that you didn't say that on this site. Jeff was just trying to ruin your credibility concerning the comments you've made against his store and in the process destroyed his own credibility. This only made you look better.

In case you don't remember, Jeff Clark is also the person who said that Matt drove a black car when in fact it was green. He's also the person who lied to corporate about going and seeing Misty in the hospital when she was hurt. So as you can see, he has a track record of being a liar. You, Aaron, shouldn't act like Jeff Clark has nothing to do with this situation when in fact he does. More than you think.

Nobody would have known about this site if Jeff Clark hadn't come into work telling everyone about it and misquoting what you had said. He's going to have to buckle-down and do his job from now on and that's good. He should have conducted himself as a decent manager a long time ago and some dope like Matt coming in late everyday. At least you were able to bring some of the problems to light concerning ADF corporate offices. Now they know they better start handling their employees in a better manner. I still cant understand why they haven't fired Matt. He said something about having another job so mayber he's going to quit real soon. He's so dirty I'm afraid of cathing something from him.

Shannon is still deliverying and managing at the same time. Just like somebody said, this is against ADF's corporate policy. Matt is still coming in everyday strungout and customers are still calling and complaining about him. I can take 3 deliveries sometimes compared to his one. I should be paid more money. Jeff Clark still comes in late every so often but its not as frequent as what he used to. He still manipulates his hours on the computer in the back. I caught him doing just that last week.

Preston Arnwine still comes in everyday and sits on his rear in the back office doing absolutely nothing. When Bethany comes in, she usually goes back there and they shut the door. At least they've got the common decency to not mess around in the open anymore. Its still awful that they get away with this.

Susie was hurt real bad in a car accident, so Connie is having to work harder. Jeff nor Preston either one know how to do the dough so you can't expect those two idiots to do anything. I can't believe ADF think that these two are good employees. I guess they'll hire anybody.

I have an interview in two weeks with Denso. I'm hoping I get a job there so that I don't have to deal with Pizza Hut anymore. ADF is ver lousy company to work for. The customers we are forced to deal with are just like you said "very trashy" at times. I'm over it.

I think one of the other drivers down here has some stuff on tape concerning Preston and Jeff that you should hear. I don't know if you've talked to him/her yet, but its some stuff that really should help your case out when you sue Pizza Hut.

They are going to send Russ to manage the Townsend store. You'll have to tell all your family and everyone you know up there about what Pizza Hut has done and how nasty their food is. Its really not Russ's fault but given time I'm sure he'll start to act just like Jeff and Preston.

I just wanted to let you know what is going on down here and some things I've found out. I hope our paths cross some day soon. I'd like to see you again. Your a good guy and don't forget that. Just keep fighting. Jeff, preston and ADF are all shaking in ther boots concerning you. Dont let them get away with what they've done.

Russ? The same who started Papa Johns?

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

I'm just curious if the Russ that was mentioned here is the same one who quit at the Hannum St. location to open the Papa Johns across the street?

ADF is by far the worst organization to ever have a Pizza Hut franchise. I've been with this company a long time now and I don't know if I've ever seen such disregard for employee safety, especially the delivery personnel, since ADF bought us out. There's just some places that we should not be expected to go. There has to be a reason why Dominoes and Papa Johns don't go to these places but yet ADF Pizza Huts do. I guess it's because as long as ADF is making money, they don't care whether a driver gets robbed, shot or even killed. It's all about money to them and not safety.

I hope Aaron is able to win his case and then sue them for every penny that they are worth. ADF Pizza Huts deserve to be brought to justice.

I used to work with Aaron years ago at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut.

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

Me and Aaron worked five 9hr shifts together several years ago at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut. During that time we worked under 4 different managers. All of which worth worthless. I guess that's why they ended up at Pizza Hut.

We were actually working there when Jeff Clark(the current RGM) first started as a delivery driver. He had a big red-neck camaro and a mullet. Who would have thought he would have ever became a manager. I guess the mullett is what impressed corporate pizza hut.

The manager that me and Aaron had at the time was named Tom. They called him TJ but I can't remember what his last name was. He was a drug addict also. There were times when he would come out of the bathroom with big white rocks stuck in the hairs in his nose from snorting cocaine. He treated me and Aaron like s***t. I actually quit before Aaron did. Sometimes Tom would let us drive his Honda Accord. Needless to say, we absolutely drove that car as hard as it would go. I'm surprised we didn't blow it up. He deserved it.

Before Tom came a long we had a manger named Richard who was nothing more than a drunk and a pillhead. He used to come into work so blasted sometimes that we would just sit him in the back and take care of everything ourselves. Me and Aaron could have just robbed Pizza Hut blind, and I probably would have but I know Aaron wouldn't want to be a part of anything like that. It wasn't in his nature to steal. Really, Pizza Hut owes Aaron a great debt of gratitude for babysitting the Managers when they would come in so stoned that they couldn't work.

Pizza Hut on Hannum St. was the place to get cocaine for awhile after we left. I think the Alcoa Police eventually started tapping the phone lines and I know that several of the drivers we used to work with were indicted on federal drug charges. Some actually ended up doing some hard prison time. We had no idea what was going on behind our backs while we worked there.

I just wanted to comment and let you know that Aaron IS a GOOD PERSON. I don't know if I have ever seen him do anything that would calll his charater into question and I have a hard time believeing that he did something wrong concerning this incident where these other people were obviously the aggressors. I do believe that Pizza Hut has treated Aaron in the wrong way. They never learn. I don't know if they actually know how to do the right thing.

Aaron, I hate that this incident at Pizza Hut has knocked you out of finding better employment where you could use your degree. I wish I had known what had happened to you before you started working back at Pizza HUt. I would have hired you immediately to help you pay your bills. I would not count on Jeff Clark and this Preston Arnwine guy to do anything for you at this point. I would just go ahead and sue them both along with ADF. What the hell kind of name is PRESTON ARNWINE? Sounds like some kind of TV evangelist.

I hate that we have lost touch over the years. I miss not getting to hang out with you buddy. I always thought that you were a stand-up guy. I'm sure that hasn't changed. Good luck in your future. If you still are looking for some part time work, I'll be in touch real soon. I would love to see you. If you need me I would be more than happy to be a character witness on your behalf on February 7, 2005. See ya Boss!

Corporate Huts are just as bad

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

I worked at Pizza Hut for 5 years. I was terminated for being late-just like all the other drivers. I was singled out and got the bomb. They tried to fight my unemployment but I WON! hahahaha. They fired two other tardy folks, but only because one was my son and the other his girl. My son told everyone in the place about how the managers changed his and the girl's times to reflect on-time. Had to shut the kid up!

In the 5 yrs I have worked at this corporate owned store, I have had sexual harassment (I filed report and was nearly fired myself in a retaliation "sting".) The HR broad "lost" the report until they were done dragging me through the bullcrap. She apologized. Still did nothing, the kid who harassed me go fired for calling a manager an a*****e. He told me to suck his you-know. Which is worse?

I have been set-up for years one way or another. Mystery calls to see how we are answering the phone, they lie about what you say. Makes ya scared to answer the phone. Then they hire ppl who can't speak english well enough to answer it...

We had a drug dealer who used the dining room after close to break down the stuff. We had a manager steal another employee's vehicle. The employee was arrested at work, left the truck. So they stole it rather than pay to have it towed to police impound.

We have drivers that reek of marijuana and admit freely that they smoke on the job! We have managers that screw waitresses on the cut table. Hungry? One kid got his girlfriend pg in the bathroom. One of our managers whipped his winkie out at one of the waitresses. She complained and ended up fired. I and another girl who knew about it got written up for saying yes we knew about it.

So, corporate, franchise, doesn't matter. Pizza Hut doesn't care about their employees. Pizza Hut is wicked and anything you can do to hurt them, more power to you. I will encourage everyone I know to stop eating there. Stupid Pizza Hut. Ex-employees are bad advertising. I will also encourage any who ask to not work there.

Just a thought and update.

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

The company with which I was interviewing has decided not to hire me becuase of the information obtained on my background check. They said that normally they would go ahead and hire someone with a misdemeanor pending but an assult misdemeanor is deamed violent and they cannot assume that liability. I have informed my lawyer of this situation.

I spoke with a friend of the family who, from time to time, gets pizza from the Hannum St. location. She said that she normally just picks it up after reading about the situation concerning Matt.

She said that on Saturday, she went to pick up her pizza. Upon entering the parking lot, she noticed the extreme bump and the entrance. By "extreme dip", she meant to dip that you have to drive across that is situated between the street and the parking lot. This "extreme dip" has been that way for years even though the delivery personnel have brought it to Pizza Hut management's attention on more than one occasssion.

She said she got her pizza and went back to her car to leave. She went on to state that she had forgotten about the "extreme dip" and accidentally crossed it too fast. During this process, she bounced her face and head off the steering wheel which resulted in a busted lip. She immediately called me. She knew my situation and thought that this might be how the guy who followed me to Pizza Hut on Hannum St.

I've been saying all along that when the guy and his three buddies left the parking lot, they were going to fast. When his car hit the "extreme dip", I thought that he had blown his tire. I'm sure the collision with the "extreme dip" jostled these three idiots around in the car and could have possibly provided the fat lip that one of the bullies received.

Now, here's my point: Is it possible that by not fixing the "extreme dip", Pizza Hut was negligent? Could it be that if the "extreme dip" had been fixed to within reason, no one would have injuries that they could blame on me? Is it possible that if Pizza Hut had had the common decency to fix this obstacle, this situation might not have ocurred and I wouldn't be the target of a frivalous criminal case? I THINK SO AND SO DOES MY ATTORNEY.

I have taken some pictures of the "extreme dip" which will be used as evidence in my trial on Feb. 7. We also took some measurements of the "extreme dip". According to regulations of the city of Alcoa, something should have been done a long time ago about the Hannum St. parking lot. You would think that a strictly delivery & carry-out store would provide a decent entrance into their parking lot for delivery drivers and customers as well. Not at the ADF Pizza Hut on Hannum St. If need be, I will also use these pictures and measurements in any civil suit that may follow depending on ADF's and Preston's behavior.

God Bless!

One last thing: GOOD NEWS! A union involved with the teamsters is trying to organize a union for Resteraunt Employees which will include delivery drivers. There was article last week in the Maryville Times about this union. The reason the people are allowed to be a delivery driver and a manager is so that they can vote on the labor union issue. ADF is trying to load up the delivery personnel with managers to skew the vote when the time comes. TYPICAL.

I read an article on yahoo Sunday about this situation also. They actually mentioned ADF Pizza Huts as being one of the worst franchises to work for. FIGURES.

I heard Jeff say that they had plan concerning you. This ripoffreport has them worried.

The corporate guys from ADF are on Preston's back about the things which have been posted. They should have been watching him closer a long time ago. He has to lie to them everyday about his behavior.

I'm just worried that you won't see them coming. Make sure you look over your shoulder always. I know you can handle yourself but if you have to, shoot first and then ask the questions. Matt is not going to do anything, you know that. The ones to worry about are Preston and Jeff. I really don't think Jeff will do anything either. He acts like he has known you for a while, so he should know better.

We are all on your side and wish we could help in some way. The next time we think Matt has drugs on him at work we have all decided to call the police. Knowing how Alcoa is, they probably won't do anything about it. It will probably take them a long time to get here.

Please keep your eyes open and be on the look out for anything that seems strange. You should have your gatlin ready to rock and roll. That should fend anything from Preston off. He is a real life coward. He will probable try to put someone else up to doing his dirty work. Please be careful and make sure you are around people so that you will have witnesses.

I work at the ADF Pizza Hut, Central Location, Preston is a real pig.

AUTHOR: Delivery Driver - (U.S.A.)

Preston is a real pig. He has all these little whores that he has relations with at every store from what I've heard. As long as you are sleeping with him you can get away with murder. I've over heard Preston and our manager talking about the situation with Aaron. Yes, he's trying to find someone to lie on Aaron in Knoxville now since nobody will do it at the Hannum St. store.

I actually heard about this site from the conversation that I overheard. If our manager had any patriotism, he would have called the police and told them about Preston's little plot that he is planning. I guess everybody in management within in this company is willing to break the law for Preston. I took the liberty of calling the police myself. How do you like that Preston?

ADF Pizza Huts are by far the worst pizza places in America. If the corporate Pizza Hut people knew about a fraction of the stuff that Preston Arnewine does, they would shut down everystore in this area.

I'm glad I know about this site now. I have told all of my fellow workers about it. Hopefully the word will spread to every store that Preston has any thing to do with. He's a real dog.

I pray that happens.

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

I pray that Matt shows up at my house or down at my Dad's just one more time. I can assure you that is the last thing he would want to do at this point. We have 24 hour cameras in Townsend and down at my Dad's we've got 24 hour firearms. Actually, when I'm in Townsend we've got cameras and firearms.

Are you sure that you are being completely honest with me about Preston's plan? I mean, how would he benefit from blaming me for damage to Matt's car? How would that help ADF? From what I hear about Matt's ride, I don't know how you would distinguish any damage from the fact that the car is simply a drug-addict driven piece of junk. If he didn't spend all his money on drugs, maybe he could afford to have a decent vehicle.

I'm not calling you a liar. It just sounds a little fishey that Preston couldn't come up with a better plan than that. That's really an oddball plan. But I appreciate your concern and for telling me about this. You should report this to the ADF people. There's got to be someway to contact them. I will be sure and pass this information along to my lawyer. I wouldn't put Preston passed this though. He's made some pretty ignorant decisions in the past and this sounds sort of like another one.

I think Preston is regretting the way he has handled this. He should. It could possibly cost him and his company alot of money. Good call, ADF!

Dude, we don't care about Bethany. The best thing to do is stay away from her. I actually kind of feel sorry for her. She obviously has some self-esteem issues.

I think that now is time that Preston and ADF standup and act reposibly. There's only so many times you can lie without getting caught. There's only so many times you can violate your own company policy before you get sued. There's only so many times you can lie, cheat and steal before you are found out.

We have Jeff on tape talking to another employee about lying against you to protect pizza hut and ADF. Whatever you do, don't trust Jeff or Preston.

We just wish we could go over their heads and report what kind of sneakiness they are up to to their bosses. I guess ADF doesn't care. Theres got to be some way. We wish they could hear this tape of Jeff plotting against you.

I caught Matt the other day sniffing pils in the bathroom. He left abig mess around the sink. This stuff should not go on at work. Nobody should have to deal with this. He still smells really bad and is always scratching at himself. I cant see why they let him work here. Customers are always complaining about him. It makes us all look bad. He has duckk tape holding his door together now. Looks like sanford and son coming down the road.

We just wanted to let you know what was going on. If anything happens we are on your side and will let you use this tape against Jeff and Preston. We got Bethany on tape to talking about sexual things which she shouldnot be doing at work.

Do you know the new manager Russ. Is he a good guy. He said he used to work wth you along time ago.

DON"T TRUST JEFF, Aaron, he is trying to get people to lie about you. Tell your lawyer about this please. Maybe your lawyer will be able to find out how to go over Jeff and Preston's head. Please ask him. We want this place to change for the better. May the force be with you.

Aaron is too good of a guy to do this too.

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

I saw Jeff and Shannon back in Preston's office one time doing something that they shouldn't have been doing. Evidentally in order to become a manager at Pizza Hut on Hannum St. you have to be a nymphomaniac.

This is truly a sorry place to work. I need the money right now or I would have posted my real name. As soon as I find another job, I'm going to tell Aaron what I have heard Jeff say.

Ever since this has started, Jeff has been trying to get us to lie so that Aaron would be the only one to take the fall. I will not do that. We've actually got him on tape asking one of us to lie about Aaron. He wanted us to back up Matt's story but that's impossible. No amount of money would get me to lie for pizza huts sake.

Aaron is too good of a guy to do this too. If it were Matt, I would lie my a*s off just not to have to work with his smelly strungout a*s everyday. I will never know why he is still around. Maybe he's been having sex with Jeff or Preston too! Ha! Ha!

I would say that he has been getting them drugs but i can't prove it. All I can prove is that Jeff has been asking us to lie about Aaron. I hope Aaron sues ADF to the point that they have to change things around here.

Co-worker #2, I forgot to tell you that blackmailing Preston isn't a viable option.

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

It is illegal afterall and would make you no better than Preston.

I truly feel your best option is to report what you saw to the ADF corporate heads and then go from there. If Preston or Jeff tries to fire you or treat you unfairly, you then have a legitimate case for civil action. We have what are called "Whistle Blower" laws in the state of TN that protects folks like yourself. I'm sure that ADF knows all about this legislation.

Just try to do the right thing. Think about it. You have plenty of time and I know an attorney that would love to take your case if Preston or Jeff tries any form of intimidation against you. ADF, Jeff and Preston are already in enough trouble.

Good Luck my friend!

"co worker" please refrain from posting comments concerning your prefereances about condemns. I thought I was going to puke when you said you went "bare back" with Bethany. You should have yourself checked out by a physician. By the way, Bethany's hair is always "messed up."

You need to tell Aaron about Preston's comments to say the least. You need to at least call him and let him know what kind of sneaky crap Preston and Jeff are up to.

Aaron is not a coward and he will appreciate the fact that you thought enough of him to inform him of something that concerns his case. If you don't, we will all just have to assume that you are scared of Preston and Jeff. Do they have you buffaloed?

All Aaron has to do is say the word and I'll be a witness on his behalf if jeff wants to create false witnesses. Jeff is a false witness to manhood and what managers should be anyways. So is Preston.

Jeff needs to think twice about what he is doing. I'm sure Aaron could find plenty of witnesses on his behalf if Jeff wants to play that little game. Jeff is a sneak.

Well, I got to go. I still have some Pizza Hut hot wings in the freezer and I'm hungry. "Gather round the good stuff!"

Do the right thing.

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

Co worker, you should tell me anyways what Preston said. It doesn't really matter what Preston knows about concerning you and Bethany. Why would you care? The fact that something went on between you and Bethany is irrelavent. With what you saw, Preston wouldn't want to fire you anyways. Preston has wife and several kids.

I'm in a predicament because of Preston. Even though I did nothing wrong, I'm torn between pleading guilty to these charges just to get this court case over. Then my accusers will have a free ride straight to ADF's pocket book. They can't sue me personally according to what my lawyer says and they owe me my back pay regardless of the outcome of my criminal case. I figure he knows more about civil matters than Preston or Jeff. If I just went ahead and pleaded guilty it would be a first time offense and I could get some kind of special treatment concerning my record. Neither charge is a felony, so if convicted I can still buy guns and go hunting which is all I real care about anyways.

I appreciate you telling me that Jeff is trying to cook up some false witnesses in this case. I never thought that he would do something like that but at this point, I wouldn't put him or Preston past anything. I will be sure and let my lawyer know what Jeff is trying to do. I understand he has lied concerning another employee in court one other time. That's what they call perjury.

I guess this all boils down to: you can do the right thing or remain silent. You can let Preston and Jeff continue to do their dirty deeds or you can call attention to their character now. You can help make ADF Pizza Huts a better place to work for your fellow man or you can cow down and do nothing just like people like Jeff and Preston want you to do. It's your choice.

Thanks for your comments, co worker. I think you are a different co worker than the other one. Maybe you should write co worker #2.

PS- Any comments you make to me personally regarding my case will be kept in complete confidentiality. Everybody knows how to get in touch with me.

To those of you who it may concern, bunch of Managers and top Suits who can't own up to what responsibility is.

AUTHOR: Co Worker - (U.S.A.)

While on the clock about to take a delivery to Pershing St, I was about to take it out the door, when I saw something in the office. I saw Bethany and Preston in the office. It looked like they had just got done with some 'arranging.' The desk was a mess, and I thought I saw Bethany on Preston. But before I could get a better look, all I saw were a few things knocked down. Bethany's hair was messed up and she yelled at me about standing there. I think they got busted messing around. I can analyze this whole situation with Aaron, and what im seeing, is a bunch of Managers and top Suits who can't own up to what responsibility is. If they did the right thing and compensated Aaron, fired Matt the scumbag, and got Bethany out of there, that place would be much better. I am single and don't get me wrong, Bethany coming on to me when I close at night is tempting, and I could probably get a quick session in the office, but her reputation isn't all that good. But like I said, I am single, my frustrations for sex can't go on for long. That's why I am not even going to discuss what happened between me and her. I will say this much, if she lied to me about being on birth control (I don't like condoms, it feels better bare and raw) I will be filing a suit of my own. Jeff also had a talk with me and from what he was telling me, he wanted me to try and be a false witness in this whole case. I declined and now I think my time at this pizza hut might soon be over. Bethany isn't too happy about it, looks like her and Jeff aren't on good terms now.

P.S. I am not scared of Preston finding out about me and Bethany. IF (and that's a big IF) there is something between those two, and Preston does something to me; then blackmail against Preston may have him walking a thin tight rope with this ongoing legal case. I will tell Aaron what Preston said a few days ago. Preston, I know you found out about Bethany and I, and you know that I overheard what you said about Aarron. I will tell him. Don't force me into a corner, I will lash out.

Aaron, it's somewhat odd that Jeff Clark has told us to not look at this site because all it is, is a bunch of disgruntled ex employees and it's not important. But, yet everyday Jeff and Preston have something new that they are concerned about concerning what somebody has put on this thread. They've also had to answer to the corporate people for some of the stufff they have been getting away with after it was brought to light on this site.

Jeff and Preston, if this doesn't matter then why are you two so interested in what it has to say? Why are our corporate managers so interested in it? Why are you two shaking in your boots? afraid?

You know you've done Aaron dirty. You should have known that he is the type of guy who is not willling to let you get away with this. Frankly, neither are the rest of us at this point.

I'm going to call Congressman Duncan's office today and tell him about the ADF Pizza Hut on Hannum St. This all could have been avoided if you had just treated Aaron the same way he treated you, fairly. Maybe this will be the catalyst to make you guys start treating people like you should.

I worked at the Hannum St. Hut location for a short time. Matt Taylor, Bethany Siemenshuh, EEOC magnets

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

This is the worst place I've ever worked. I don't know why you people keep saying that Amerihuts owns the Hannum St. store. Its a company called ADF.

Nobody likes Jeff or Preston there because they do what they want when it comes to the policies that they are supposed to enforce. I'll never know why Bethany was never fired for touching everybody wrongly. I guess once you make it into management, sexually harassment and being on time aren't something you have to worry about anymore.

Here's some of the things I learned at Pizza Hut on Hannum St.:

1) Dealing drugs while on the clock, is ok as long as you are a delivery driver and your name is Matt Taylor

2) Sexual Harassment is ok as long as you are Bethany Siemenshuh

3) Being late every day and not working a full work week is ok as long as you are Jeff Clark and know how to manipulate the computer

4) Being a jerk and using a double standard when dealing with your employees is ok as long as you are Preston Arnwine

5) Delivering and training as a manager at the same time, which is against pizza huts policy, is ok as long as you are Shannon, even though there are many more people deserving of this bending of the rules

6) Treating your day-shift prep cooks like crap is ok as long as you are Jeff Clark

7) Over looking sexual harassment is ok as long as you are Jeff Clark and Preston Arnwine

8) Consistently violating state labor codes is ok as long as you are ADF

9) Having sex on Preston's desk is ok as long as you are Bethany and Mickey

10) You can always get even by carrying a box of hot wings out the back door once a week if you are me. Kiss my butt Jeff Clark! You deserve not getting as high of a bonus when you treat your employees like crap.

11) If you are Aaron and do everything according to policy, you get screwed by Preston Arnswine and the FASCISTS at ADF.

ADF is truly the ENRON of Pizza Hut Franchisees.

Jeff and Preston had made the comment that no employees should be looking at this site through Shannon who is a freak. Cmon now Jeff and Preston, that would be a violation of their free speech. That's a civil case you can't win, girls. Don't you know better than that?

Maybe all us "DISGRUNTLED" employees should contact our state government people also to let them know that Aaron is not the only one to have a problem with the way he has been treated by an ADF run Pizza Hut Franchise.

Soounds like Jeff and Preston and ADF have bit off more than they can chew. I hope they decide to do Aaron right for his sake. I doubt they will though, they never have treated anybody right.

Aaron was probably one of your best delivery drivers, too. You didn't have to worry about him dealing or doing drugs on his deliveries. You didn't have to wrry about him having sex with Bethany either in the office. He was always more professional than that. He's a good guy, unlike Jeff and Preston or Matt and Mickey.

ADF has done Aaron wrong. Now they have to face the consequences whether they like it or not. Maybe they will get just a taste of the way it feels to work for their company. Like a slave ina sweat shop with no rights as American citizens.

I'm definitely on Aaron's side in this conflict. If he needs me in his case against ADF, I'm there!
I might even file a suit myself.

I have told everyone I know about this situation. They all said that they would no longer eat the slop that Pizza Hut calls food.

AUTHOR: Will(not My Real Name) - (U.S.A.)

ADF are truly a bunch of fascists. They are truly the ENRON of Pizza Hut Franchisee's. YUM! should do something about ADF aka Amerihuts now before this situation gets out of hand.

I work at Hunter's Crossing. Preston is a joke. The same kind of stuff goes on in our store that has happened at the Hannum St. store. And Preston has done nothing about any of the rampant sexual harassment that takes place.

What comes around goes around. Sooner or later ADF is going to reap what it sows in the form of a massive employee lawsuit concerning the working conditions that they expect drivers and cooks to work under.

Aaron, I don't know you but I've heard about your plight. ADF and Preston were in the wrong not to give you your backpay. I for one am ready to organize all the non-management people together within the ADF franchise and file a lawsuit. We should have no problem finding a lawyer to handle this.

Good luck to you Aaron. I gurantee you Preston will try to get out of the deal he made with you concerning your backpay once your case is over. You should plan on suing him anyways.

Yes, Jeff and Preston has made it clear that we are not to look at this site or talk to you Aaron. Did these two morons actually think that they could control us in our private life? Making rules like this should prove to you Aaron just how scared ADF is for violating state laws on a regular basis. They are afraid that they might actually get caught this time. Suspending you without pay pending the outcome of a criminal case is a definite NO NO.

The next time I hear anything come out of Jeff's mouth like that again, I will call you and let you know. I'm sure your lawyer would love to represent several of us on a class-action lawsuit against ADF.

Bethany is still at it. She is sexually harasing women that she works with now. Jeff did nothing. He just thought it was funny. Isn't that great to know. Preston, I think said something to her about it but he didn't write it up. If she pulls this crap with me again, I'm suing. Leah, this really happened so shut your pie hole. Nobody cares what you have to say anyways you idiot. You are not even an employee and wouldn't know what goes on this store everyday.

By the way, I'm not disgruntled Jeff. I'm just tired of you and Preston getting away with murder and ADF upholding you in your dirty deeds. I'm going to start keeping track of every time I see you two shaving hours. You best be on time from now on Jeff.

Thankyou Aaron for having the courage to stand up to these two "ENRON"-like managers.

Got some things to straighten out so listen up...

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

I found out today that Misty is not the one stirring up trouble. She has no reason to. She has nothing to gain by doing so. I don't think that I would recognize her walking down the street but I sincerely apologize for putting any stock in something that was obviously untrue about her.

I have been receiving e-mails from various sources who won't give their real names. Some of this information has been pretty accurate. Some of the information has been blatantly false. The one concerning Misty was false and I know that now.

As long as Pizza Hut can keep its employees at each others throats, it takes attention away from their corporate underhandedness.

I've also had a chance to consult with an investigator. He tells me that some of these e-mails have probably come from people like Jeff, Preston or Matt. Whether the e-mails came from them or not is really not important to me. What is important is that it stops now.

It has also come to my attention that Jeff Clark thinks that I have have filed all of these rebuttals myself. Jeff, if you think that I'm the only person whom Pizza Hut has done wrong, then you are sadly mistaken. You should quit being so paranoid about this situation and worry more about how you manage your store. I have no problem with you, but if you want one, then I will tell my attorney that you are spreading rumors that might affect my case. Well is that what you want?

Furthermore, Shannon, you do not dictate Pizza Hut Company Policy. The next time I hear about you telling people not to talk to me because Preston and Jeff said so, I will sue your a*s off and have you brought up on charges of witness tampering. Preston and Jeff know better than to give some ultimatim concerning having contact with me. That would be against the law at at the very least an open door to a lawsuit against ADF. Furthermore, you lied to me about James. Now I know you are a LIAR and a CHEAT. You are one of the most dishonest people at the Hannum St. store. You are another one who needs to get a life!

I also found out that our Pizza Hut is no longer owned by Amerihuts. It is actually owned by ADF which is a subsidiary of YUM! BRANDS, INC. I heard that ADF actually stands for Andy, d**k and Frank. Who are these people? Maybe they need to know what is going on in the Hannum St. store.

Even though Preston wouldn't tell me about the telephone call concerning these people suing his company, I know now what was said. Shame on you Preston Arnwine. I informed my attorney of the little conversation you had with my accusers. Seems they were just wanting money and you told them to go ahead and prosecute me. While the issue has been brought up in past rebuttals, I know now that I AM fighting ADF's fight. You know that you should have provided me with an attorney, but you didn't. You should have been open and honest with me, but you weren't. You should have told me about the telephone call but you didn't. You should have done the right thing, but you didn't. From now on, our conversations will take place through my lawyer. I should have known better than to do anything in good-faith with you.

Furthermore, you are a fool Jeff to believe that James and Jaime have anything to do with these rebuttals posted on this site. You did James and Jaime both wrong. From what I've heard they have consulted with an attorney concerning some of the comments you have made about them. You need to be real careful what you say from now on. I didn't want to involve you and Preston in a lawsuit, but I will if you two don't straighten up. I can sure you that this is not just some hollow threat.

It really feels good to know exactly what has been going on from a "ADF Pizza Hut Management" point of view. Did you folks actually think I wouldn't find out about your little dishonest game you've been playing with me?

It's amazing what an investigator and an attorney can find out about employers. It's good to know we have people in this state who can find information for you like these guys I have.

From now on, any e-mails or posts that I get concerning another employee other than Preston, Jeff, Matt and Shannon will be ignored. I don't have time to get involved in situations at Pizza Hut that have nothing to do with my fight. That's Preston's and Jeff's job. A lot of this deal could have been avoided if Preston had done the right thing to begin with but he didn't.

Preston has promised to give me my backpay when my case is dismissed. He better, with what I know now concerning his statements to my accusers.

Oh yeah, and Jeff, you don't dictate what people should and shouldn't look at on-line. You don't dictate what people do in their personal time. You actually made the statement that this site is just disgruntled ex-employees of Pizza Hut. Nice try. There are plenty of people in this county who know about this situation who aren't employees. The next time I hear about you making any comments saying that I'm "Disgruntled", you're going to learn a whole new term: "Defamation & Slander".

Just remember: Jeff & Preston, you are the folks who wanted to let lawyers get involved in this situation. And you can bet your a*s I'm going to use mine to my full advantage if I'm paying for the fight. That includes coming after both of you and your company legally if you don't hold up your end of the bargain you made with me concerning backpay.

I could always just lie and take a plea agreement. I could just lie and say I did something wrong when in fact I didn't. Then those folks accusing me would have an easy time taking ADF and Pizza Hut to court. That's just something both of you need to think about.

GOD BLESS and AMEN!

I overheard Matt Taylor on the phone at work the other day making a drug deal when the conversation changed to the topic of Aaron's case and Matt being the star witness.

AUTHOR: Co-Worker - (U.S.A.)

I just wanted to let everybody know what I heard Matt say. He said that he could lie as good as anybody and when he got his money from the Lavoys he was going to buy a big rock. I'm assuming by "rock" he means either crack or cocaine.

I can't wait until this is over and Matt is sitting in jail where he should be. If I see him doing anything else at work involving drugs, I'm going to call the police and have him arrested. Why was he hired?

I have a friend with the MPD and informed him of Matt Taylor and what type of car he drives. I noticed on one of the other posts concerning the Hannum St. Pizza HUT, Matt is mentioned by an irrate customer. Matt gives the good drivers a bad name. He should be fired immediately. Preston just doesn't have any backbone until he is afraid that he will be sued by a dishonest customer. He has definitely done Aaron wrong.

What Matt doesn't realize is that his path will cross with Aaron's somewhere down the road again and he won't have the police or pizza hut to look out for him. Not that Aaron would just automatically jump him, that's not his way, but I'm sure Matt would start something and that Aaron would end it permanently by having Matt locked up.

Just think about the situation this way. If the police had done their job and got a drug-dealer like Matt off the streets this would have never happened. If Preston and Jeff would have done their job and fired Matt when he was threatening to kill everyone, this would have never happened either.

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

I just wanted to let you know that my intent was not to include ALL employees at Pizza Hut. If you will go back and read my comments, at no point do I say that ALL the employees there are bad people and drug addicts.

You, Susie, are one of the people who I have a lot of respect for and you should realize that. I feel that someone has planted a seed in your head about me attacking ALL Pizza Hut employees. Perhaps it was the x-employee who hangs out in the lobby all day long. You know who I mean. I heard about her interest in this situation and know what she has done to fuel the fire. This person obviously has nothing better to do with her boring life. All that is left for her to do is stir-up trouble at a place where she feels welcome. Some people are addicted to drama I guess.

People like Susie are the very reason that I am fighting this fight against Pizza Hut. Ultimately, decent people like her are the ones who suffer the most from underhanded management practices that plague the resteraunt business.

Susie, I'll make you and the rest of the HONEST NON ADDICT CROWD a promise: If down the road, I ever get back into a position where I can provide employment for the people that I trust, then you will be the first that I call along with Craig who has been a d**n fine friend over the years. Connie is cool too. All of you are taken advantage of by Pizza Hut everyday. They should be proud that they have decent people like yourselves as employees. But instead management forces people like Matt upon you placing you in harms way and jeopardizing your safety.

I'm glad that you have sorted this situation out Susie. I was beginning to think that I would never hear from you again. Next time, call me and don't listen to those folks around you who don't have your best interests at heart. They generally are just serving their own selfish addictions. I would rather hear you absolutely cuss me out as to hear that you don't want to know me anymore based on what someone else has to say.

I just want to say one more time that there are a few decent poeple at Pizza Hut on Hannum St. They know who they are. There are also several who are worthless excuses for human beings. They know who they are. If you worthless ones have a problem with me then take it up with me personally and leave decent folks like Susie out of it. The fact that you have dragged her into this argument just shows to what extent your cowardice runs.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST: THE ELECTRIC EYE IS WATCHING YOU MATTHEW TAYLOR & COMPANY. SO ARE THE POLICE.

PS: I didn't realize that I graduated from high school with so many gossips until my charges came out in the local paper. It's good to know that you learned nothing at Maryville HS about honor and friendship. Just the running tradition of being a*****e snobs. Thank God I'm not really from Maryville and have to live with you heathens everyday.

Seems some of those gossips work for the Alcoa Police Department. Be extra careful what you say. Slander and Defamation can cost you a chunk of money including your job, chickenshits! You folks are sad....extremely sad cowards. You know who you are. Get a life and have some class!

Next time, call me and don't listen to those folks around you who don't have your best interests at heart. They generally are just serving their own selfish addictions. I would rather hear you absolutely cuss me out as to hear that you don't want to know me anymore based on what someone else has to say.

I just want to say one more time that there are a few decent poeple at Pizza Hut on Hannum St. They know who they are. There are also several who are worthless excuses for human beings. They know who they are. If you worthless ones have a problem with me then take it up with me personally and leave decent folks like Susie out of it. The fact that you have dragged her into this argument just shows to what extent your cowardice runs.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST: THE ELECTRIC EYE IS WATCHING YOU MATTHEW TAYLOR & COMPANY. SO ARE THE POLICE.

PS: I didn't realize that I graduated from high school with so many gossips until my charges came out in the local paper. It's good to know that you learned nothing at Maryville HS about honor and friendship. Just the running tradition of being a*****e snobs. Thank God I'm not really from Maryville and have to live with you heathens everyday.

Seems some of those gossips work for the Alcoa Police Department. Be extra careful what you say. Slander and Defamation can cost you a chunk of money including your job, chickenshits! You folks are sad....extremely sad cowards. You know who you are. Get a life and have some class!

Thanks Susie for your concern. It was good to here from you on this thread.

I just wanted to let you know that my intent was not to include ALL employees at Pizza Hut. If you will go back and read my comments, at no point do I say that ALL the employees there are bad people and drug addicts.

You, Susie, are one of the people who I have a lot of respect for and you should realize that. I feel that someone has planted a seed in your head about me attacking ALL Pizza Hut employees. Perhaps it was the x-employee who hangs out in the lobby all day long. You know who I mean. I heard about her interest in this situation and know what she has done to fuel the fire. This person obviously has nothing better to do with her boring life. All that is left for her to do is stir-up trouble at a place where she feels welcome. Some people are addicted to drama I guess.

People like Susie are the very reason that I am fighting this fight against Pizza Hut. Ultimately, decent people like her are the ones who suffer the most from underhanded management practices that plague the resteraunt business.

Susie, I'll make you and the rest of the HONEST NON ADDICT CROWD a promise: If down the road, I ever get back into a position where I can provide employment for the people that I trust, then you will be the first that I call along with Craig who has been a d**n fine friend over the years. Connie is cool too. All of you are taken advantage of by Pizza Hut everyday. They should be proud that they have decent people like yourselves as employees. But instead management forces people like Matt upon you placing you in harms way and jeopardizing your safety.

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

I just got off the phone with my attorney. My court date will be on February 7, 2005. I would say that this case will be dismissed by then.

Furthermore, I was informed that some of you disgruntled losers at Pizza Hut have been spoofing my e-mail address. Nice try. Now you are being monitored. Anymore funny business like that and I will go to the Sheriff's Department with what I've seen go on concerning drug trafficking at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut location. I will also name each and everyone of you, involved in this deception, in a slander lawsuit. Just so you know: BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU. If you've got the money, I've got the time to sue you.

You folks better straighten up and act like you have some sense. Did you actually think you could get away with this? Did you actually think you wouldn't get caught? I have a list of who you are now and if I get anymore reports, I will simply hand this list to my attorney. Is that what you want? Nice try, Matt.

Some of the folks on this list, I was a little surprised to see. But now I know who you really are as a person and that is not a surprise.

Boy, Pizza Hut is going to be out of a chunk of money in order to pay the backpay that is owed by state law. This all could have been avoided by letting me work instead of trying to get me to sign something stating I had done something wrong after I had followed Pizza Hut's policy completely. You've got to be crazy to think you could pull that one off on me! You need to learn to stand behind your employees who are in the right when something like this happens. I hope this is an expensive lesson for you to learn.

as a Pizza Hut Employee I appreciate that you mentioned that there are good people who work at Hanuum St.

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

Aaron,

I would like to say that I appreciate that you mentioned that there are good people who work at Hanuum St. I am there for a paycheck and not a popularity contest. I am thankful that I have a job. As far as your court problems, sorry that you are going through it, but I don't appreciate you putting in all of Hannum St. employees mixed in with it. You did do that when you mentioned all of the employess and not naming names. Everything had been blown out of proportion. Every job has its problems, and if you are lucky enough to find a job that you like, and you don't have any problems then you work for yourself. There are always people that you work with that you don't particular care for, if so then you stay the heck away from them. I've done it for six years,and tried to do my job to the best of my ability and mind my own business. I've had good bosses and LOTS of bad bosses. There are some I like more than others, but I do what is asked of me, and yes sometimes I complain. But all in all it's a pretty good job and I am thanked by a boss everyday I work before I leave, and that is all I have to say about that.

I appreciate the fact that you decided to use your real name. It adds merit to your comments. I don't know why everyone got off on the tangent of Bethany. It doesn't have anything to do with what I'm going through. I always thought Bethany was ok......emotional and a little nutty, but cool none the less.

Bethany is actually the one who called the police when I got back to store during this little incident.I used to work with her Dad at Polywhore Circuit Technologies in Maryville.

I would just like ask people one more time that if they are going to post comments, then make sure your comments will actually add to my argument against Pizza Hut. When you post comments about other people at Pizza Hut, it takes away from what this thread is intended to be about and doesn't really help me out at all.

On a lighter not: I was offered a new job with a good company in Knoxville making good money. If this situation keeps me from going to work there, I'm going to immediately file suit against Pizza Hut. This situation did show up on my background check, but HR realizes that Pizza Hut is a shitty place to work and the management there is even shittier.

After I told them what happened and to go look at this site, I think they are going to hire me anyways. They should. Afterall, the charges brought against me are just misdemeanors. They are just allegations, not convictions. I have Mike Flynn, Pizza Hut, Matt Taylor and Lavoy to thank for this drama. Thanks GUYS!

Anybody know if I should go ahead and contact the State Attorney General? I really need to know.

And I know who started the rumors...and Bethany never told you anything either Benton, because it never happened. And you guys are all ex-employees, if you knew what was supposedly going on, why didnt you say anything while you worked there? Interesting to say the least.I think that you heard to rumors from one of the cooks and an ex manager, in fact I know you did. I know both Bethany and Mickey, and it's just sad that ex-pizza hut employees such as yourselves have nothing better to do than this.At least Aaron has a cause and I was just trying to defend a friend. I will admit that Behtany isnt the smartest chick, but she isnt THAT STUPID!!! And screw you guys, because Bethany always had good things to say about both Marcus and Benton, and most of the employees and ex employees that have posted, so you should all be ashamed of yourselves...

Bethany did the same thing to me.

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

Bethany did the samme thing to me as she did to Aaron. It is true, LA LA, that Mickey and her had sex in the backk office. I heard everyone talking about it including Bethany..

I'm a married mann and don't apprecaite behaviorr like that att all. I love my wife very much. Even when working somewwhere like Pizza Hut, nobody should be subjected to misbehavior such as this. Pizza Hut doess have policies against this typpe of sexual harassment along with drug use. But Preston never does anything about anything.

What Preston and Matt has done to Aron is awful. Aron is one of the best guys I've ever known. He doesn't deserve this type of treatment from Pizza Hut or Mik Flynn.

If Prston had done his job then thiss wouldd have ben all over with. He should have called the DA and raised hell. He should have went to bat for Aron. He should have fired Matt on several occasions. He did nothing just like he always does. Preston is the one who has cused this situation, not Aron.

The police weren't any better. They always say that there are two sidess to evry story and somewhere in the middle is the truth. That's bullshit. They just want to invent ther own story so that they don't have to do any real work. Alcoa city is the king of laziness when it comes to doing =an investagation. They are all crooked and stupid.

Aron, you hang in ther buddy. Don't let these assholes get you down. You got caught up in something that was going to happen at Pizza Hut sooner or later anyways. I for one think you are one of the most genuine guys I've ever known. I couldn't ever see you handling anything in any other way but the right way. Your the good guy in this mess Pizza Hut has gotten you into.

What you should have done is disregard Pizza Huts policy and beat the s**t out of everyone of these fools over behind midland plaza. Then you should have drove back to pizza hut and beat the s**t out of Preston. As a matter of fact, you should have beat the s**t out of Jeff and Mickey too.

Jeff is an idiot too. You shouldn't feel any obligation to any of these assholes whatsoever. They would turn on you in a heartbeat. They have no honor. They have no morals. I guess Bethany learned from the best when she decided to have sex with a married man in Preston's office. I hope Mickey's wife is proud of what a piece of s**t she has married.

Good call Preston, you've let a good man take the fall for your beloved Amerihuts. I hope Aron sues your asses to the ground. Sounds like he has a very good case. He ought to sue you personally too for being an a*****e.

Update and advice.

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

My case has been bound over. Looks like this is going to be a jury trial which is definitely to my advantage. A 12 person jury will get to decide if Matt Taylor's and Lavoy's story is credible. I will enter a plea of NOT GUILTY on Nov. 5, 2004 then we will get a court date.

The charges brought against me are assault and vandilism less than $500. Both are misdemeanors. Both are absurd. Both charges really should have been handled in general sessions court. But that's ok, I'll take a jury of my fellow Blount Countians.

I actually thought that at one point last week the charges were going to be dropped but I guess Mike Flynn's office has other plans. That's their perogative. We'll get to ask Mike Flynn why his office handled this in such a manner after the dismissal or not guilty verdict.

I called Congressman Duncan's office to inform him of this situation in my life. He informed me that he had no Federal Jurisdiction but that I should call the State Attorney General's Office just like some of the people said. I'm just wondering if I should call him now or after the case is dismissed? Does anyone know? I would appreciate your advice.

I would like to also comment on some of the things stated lately on this post. Bethany, Shannon, Mickey and Jeff have no dog in this fight. If you folks who are scared to put your real name down have some kind of ax to grind against each other then you need to do it somewhere else. This is not the place for personal squabbles.

I thought that the "D" guy might be David but I don't think that's who it is now. It doesn't really matter. You folks need to knock the silly crap off. "Credibility" is the key word here and most of your accusations against each other are lacking in that element when you won't put down your real name or where you actually live.

If you want to fight amongst yourselves then by all means do so, but do it somewhere else. File your own ripoff report but leave me the hell out of your silly games. You need to also leave people out of this post that really have nothing to do with the case.

I'm actually looking forward to this going to trial. My attorney told me that it might be after Christmas though. That's some fine "speediness" by Mike Flynn considering the incident happened June. I hate that I voted for him at this point in this deal. I think alot of other people share my sentiments according to some of the posts about our illustrious district attorney.

Anyways, I appreciate your support and comments. Just remember to think about what you are posting in your rebuttals. Make sure that your comments will add to the actual topic at hand. If not, go somewhere else. Anybody who can't post their own name from now on will be ignored.

PS- Pizza Hut owes me for 282 hours of back pay at this point. The total hours just keep growing with each passing weekend. That's some great decision making.(sarcasm)

PS PS- By the way, I'm very happy with my attorney until he does something to make me think otherwise. I will be sure and ask him about a "motion for dismissal."

GOD BLESS and GOOD NIGHT!

Pizza Hut is terrible.

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

Pizza Hut did you a disservice by suspending you without pay. This can actually make you look bad in court. The term for what Pizza Hut has done is called DEFAMATION. Pizza Hut, Preston Arnwine and Amerihuts have hurt your case. This is shameful on their part.

Any charges or allegations made toward you should have been considered heresay from Pizza Hut's perspective. The franchisee is quickly gaining a reputation in East TN as being an extremely unfriendly place to work. The management at Amerihuts must be horrific to say the least.

No matter what happens with the outcome of you trial, you should sue Pizza Hut. They are definitely in the wrong.

You never made the statement that you had hit anybody with your fists. If you had, you would have been completely within your rights to defend yourself against three attackers. How is this ASSAULT?

Does Amerihuts not have a camera at their Hannum St. store? They should. Afterall, you guys should be given at least some security. I bet they'll install one after you get done with them in court.

Until I hear that Pizza Hut has resolved this situation with you appropriately, Aaron, I will never eat at another one again. I will be sure and tell everyone that I come into contact with about your situation and how Amerihuts has treated you. I work at a local bank and can spread news very fast. TGI Fridays is awful also.

I will be ordering from Papa Johns Pizza from now on! They have better sauce and more toppings anyways.

Good Luck, Aaron, but I don't think you will need it to prove your innocence. Make sure you give suing Pizza Hut some thought. I bet you can win. No judge in this county will let Pizza Hut get away with what they have done to you.

If you want to make some money in Blount County, TN, all you have to do is accuse someone of something through Mike Flynn's office

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

I have a new court date on November 5, 2004. I don't have to be there because it is an arraignment, whatever the hell that means. Our District Attorney has saw fit to drag this out as long as possible. It's just a money thing plain and simple. Either way, I'm gonna be out a lot of money.

Let's say for instance I win, I'm still out money. Let's say I lose, I'm still out money. Isn't our Justice System great in this country? Isn't employers like Amerihuts just wonderful?
Isn't our district attorney in Blount County just a wonderful Christian man? Isn't it great to know that the whole d**n world is run by lawyers?

My lawyer told me today that if my case made it all the way to a jury trial then it would probably cost me another $1,000. That's a grand total of $1,700 to prove my innocence. On the other hand I could pay the crack-heads that brought the charges against me $1,800 and it would all be over. Isn't that just peachy?

I didn't know that you could rear-end someone, call your friends to come and bully the person you rear-ended, follow him to his work, make false accusations against him through our local district attorney, force his employer to suspend him, get one of his drug-addict coworkers to support your story, drag it out for a year and make $1,800 dollars. Wonderful! Thanks Pizza Hut! I can't tell you how much I appreciate you letting this happen.

Guess what Pizza Hut.........This could go on for six more months. Just hope you realize that you've already promised me my back pay. It doesn't really matter though, it was illegal to suspend someone pending the outcome of a criminal case in this state.

One last thing: If you want to make some money in Blount County, TN, all you have to do is accuse someone of something through Mike Flynn's office. It doesn't really matter whether you did something or not.

Shame on Pizza Hut.

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

The best thing that Amerihuts could do right now is to give Aaron all his back pay and reimburse him for whatever his lawyer fees are at this point. Preston Arnwine does not realize what kind of hole he has dug concerning violations of state labor laws. Preston should have also questioned your local district attorney about the matter.

After all, when it's all said and done, Amerihuts will have to pay Aaron his backpay. Aaron should then sue Amerihuts for reimbursement of lawyer fees. The outcome of the trial really has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the responsibilty is Amerihuts to bear, not anyone elses. Aaron came to work that day in good faith that Preston's company would provide him with an environment free from risk. Preston didn't do that and neither did Amerihuts.

BEWARE: if your delivery driver shows up in a green Honda Accord, probably spent extra time bringing the order on his delivery so that he could do some drugs..

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

If you live in Maryville or Alcoa and decide to order pizza from Pizza Hut on Hannum St., beware if your delivery driver shows up in a green Honda Accord. If he then proceeds to climb out of his driver side window like the Duke boys then it is Matt. He has probably spent extra time bringing the order on his delivery so that he could do some drugs. Your pizza will probably arrive late because of this fact.

He is the one who falsely accused Aaron of assault. I've actually heard Matt Taylor say that he was going to kill people on several occasions. I don't understand why Preston didn't fire him. One time he threatened to kill one of our managers. Again Preston did nothing. I've also seen him steal customer's breadstix and cut an extra slice in the pizza so that he would have something to eat. I saw him put a dead bug in some people's pizza who never tipped in the John Sevier community. He's TROUBLE with a capital "T".

There is no telling what all went on around your food while it was in Matt's vehicle. There is no telling what Matt has done to your food, either. His car is absolutely filthy inside. It used to look like a family of hogs lived in the backseat. Any food from Pizza Hut that has been placed in his vehicle is unsanitary and I wouldn't want to eat it.

Everybody used to complain about him digging in his pants all the time. The manager that he threatened to kill was the one who told him to "stop diggin' in your a*s, Matt. Customers don't want to see that kind of behavior and frankly neither do I!" Matt would come in sometimes and I swear he smelled like "DOODIE". You would think that Preston or Jeff would have done something about this situation concerning Matt's hygeine. They did nothing.

I remember some of the drivers didn't want to handle the delivery bags after Matt had touched them. As a matter of fact, I heard Aaron say something to him one time about coughing without covering his mouth. Maybe that's why he picked Aaron to lie about. I hope I've given people a little more insight into who Matt Taylor is and the fact that Jeff Clark and Preston Arnwine should have done something about him a long time ago.

If you live in Maryville or Alcoa and decide to order pizza from Pizza Hut on Hannum St., beware if your delivery driver shows up in a green Honda Accord. If he then proceeds to climb out of his driver side window like the Duke boys then it is Matt. He has probably spent extra time bringing the order on his delivery so that he could do some drugs. Your pizza will probably arrive late because of this fact.

He is the one who falsely accused Aaron of assault. I've actually heard Matt Taylor say that he was going to kill people on several occasions. I don't understand why Preston didn't fire him. One time he threatened to kill one of our managers. Again Preston did nothing. I've also seen him steal customer's breadstix and cut an extra slice in the pizza so that he would have something to eat. I saw him put a dead bug in some people's pizza who never tipped in the John Sevier community. He's TROUBLE with a capital "T".

There is no telling what all went on around your food while it was in Matt's vehicle. There is no telling what Matt has done to your food, either. His car is absolutely filthy inside. It used to look like a family of hogs lived in the backseat. Any food from Pizza Hut that has been placed in his vehicle is unsanitary and I wouldn't want to eat it.

Everybody used to complain about him digging in his pants all the time. The manager that he threatened to kill was the one who told him to "stop diggin' in your a*s, Matt. Customers don't want to see that kind of behavior and frankly neither do I!" Matt would come in sometimes and I swear he smelled like "DOODIE". You would think that Preston or Jeff would have done something about this situation concerning Matt's hygeine. They did nothing.

I remember some of the drivers didn't want to handle the delivery bags after Matt had touched them. As a matter of fact, I heard Aaron say something to him one time about coughing without covering his mouth. Maybe that's why he picked Aaron to lie about. I hope I've given people a little more insight into who Matt Taylor is and the fact that Jeff Clark and Preston Arnwine should have done something about him a long time ago.

Until Preston drops the ball or tries to pull something underhanded, I have to have faith in him right now. Jeff really has no say so in any of this at all. This situation has risen far above his head. However, I can't disagree with you about some of the management decisions concerning Shannon. If Amerihuts is going to have "POLICY" then they need to adhere to those rules.

Lastly, I'm glad this post has gotten back to some of the people at the bottom at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut. It makes me feel better that you folks have enough backbone to come forward with your comments. Then only way that things will ever change and get better is if you make yourself be heard by Preston and Jeff. If you raise enough hell, they'll have to bring those issues up with the amerihut corporate heads.

REALLY? This practice is against state labor codes.

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

I am very surprised that Pizza Hut aka Amerihuts saw fit to handle this situation in such a manner. Being an attorney in Memphis, I find it hard to believe that the corporate lawyers at Pizza Hut thought that they could get away with suspending someone without pay. This practice is against state labor codes. Never the less, it sounds like they are stupid enough to see if they can get away with it. I represent people all the time who thought that they could skirt the state law. The excuse always seems to be that they thought that they could get away with or they thought no one would notice.

Aaron, I think I have enough information to try and contact you. Maybe I can be of some help bringing Pizza Hut to justice. They obviously think that you will not pursue them legally. I would strongly recommend contacted your local labor board and Congressman Duncan's office. That's what these people are there for. I'll be in touch.

I personally saw Bethany sexual harass several of the drivers on a regular basis

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

I worked for a short period of time at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut while I was in between jobs. One person that hasn't been mentioned so far is a shift manager named Bethany. I personally saw Bethany sexual harass several of the drivers on a regular basis. The only one who enjoyed it was Mickey, a trailor trash individual who came here from Georgia. He and Bethany eventually had sex in Preston's office after hour one night. This is a direct violation of company policy.

I was standing behind Aaron one night while he was cashing out and Bethany told him that he could screw her if he wanted to. Aaron was repulsed and somewhat embarassed. He should have quit then and there and filed a suit against Pizza Hut. He's not the only driver she did this to. She's real w***e if you know what I mean. She's not much of a manager either. Several other employees have complained to Preston about Bethany but he never did anything. I guess if it was a customer then he would do something about it but probably not.

Pizza Hut's food is nasty and expensive. The working conditions for drivers is horrible. Jeff is a real moron too. Somehow, he and Matt are buddies. That's why Matt is still allowed to work there.

I was gone when Aaron was accused of assault. I don't believe it. I do however think that he would have been within his rights to defend himself. Preston needs to keep that in mind. My sister is an attorney and she told me that Pizza Hut should have been paying Aaron while he was suspended. She said that it was a state law.

I hope this situation costs Pizza Hut a fortune. I hope Aaron sues there asses off. I hope you're happy Jeff that you hired someone like Matt. Is he still climbing in and out of his car like Bo Duke?

AUTHOR: Tweedle Dee - (U.S.A.)

I currently work at the Pizza Hut on Hannum St. The person who falsely accused Aaron is a co-worker of mine. Matt Taylor is his name. He is on drugs. He likes to take Oxycotin and Xanax.

This Pizza Hut has a huge problem with drugs. Matt and a handful of other drivers and cooks are the problem. It makes the good drivers look bad. I would be afraid to order pizza from our store. If Preston were to weed out the undesirables he wouldn't get as big of a check because that would cost money.

Jeff Clark lies about his hours every week. He only works about 30 hours a week and Preston knows it. Jeff gets paid every week for 50 hours or better. He is a loser. Jeff and Matt play D&D together. I wish Preston would do something about these problems but he won't. Especially Jeff Clark who is late every day.

Jeff hired a girl named Shannon who is a real freak. Jeff lets her deliver while she is a manager which is against company policy. He let her train as manager while delivering which is also against company. When one of the other drivers asked to train as a manager while delivering they would not let him. He should sue Jeff Clark. I feel sorry for the good employees at Pizza Hut like myself and Aaron and Craig.

certain people, at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut, are upset that I would report that drug use goes on

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

It has come to my attention that certain people, at the Hannum St. Pizza Hut, are upset that I would report that drug use goes on. I would just like to say them that if they can prove otherwise, then by all means please file a rebuttal. I can't help it if you are in denial. The restaraunt business has always had it's problems with drug addicts. That's the way it's been in the past and that's the way I'm sure it will continue to be in future.

My point in mentioning drug abuse was to simply state the people like Matt should have been fired along time ago. I want to get one thing straight: I'm not talking about your occassional joint smoker, I'm talking about this new breed of stoner like the pillheads. They think irrationally and when an opportunity arises to get some free money to support their habit, they will make any false accusation against anybody in order to get a fix.

There's alot of good people at Pizza Hut on Hannum St. They know who they are for they are the people I respect. I only metioned the drug situation in order to tye it in with my ordeal and in hopes that this situation will never happen to anybody else. My only intenetion was to make Pizza Hut a better place for those folks who actual give a little effort. If you can't appreciate that then it doesn't bother me a bit if you want to whine around like a big baby. Are you afraid that you might have to take a drug test like the rest of our country?

I would also appreciate it if everybody would quit giving Preston such a hard time on this site. Out of all the people involved in this matter, he's done his best to do me right. I may not have thought that at the beginning, but I realize he's straddling a very tricky fence between the laws of the state of TN and the corporate tyrants that sign his check. He does what his superiors tell him to do. At the end of the day, he has to live with his self and not any of you. I'm sure he wrestles with "right and wrong" issues at the end of every work day.

I'm sure that if Preston had his way, there would be some major changes concerning Pizza Hut. I'm sure that the pay would change for drivers. I'm sure that he would do his best to provide a more safe and secure working environment for them also. I'm sure that he would put a surveillance camera up so that not only could he weed out the pillheads but also be able to prevent drivers from being falsely accused of assault. I'm sure that the drivers would no longer have to deliver in areas where crime and drug dealers are rampant. But he has no say in the matter. So you folks need to chill out with the accusations.

The problems with Pizza Hut on Hannum start at the top run down from there. Haven't you ever heard the phrase that crap runs downhill?

Hopefully this situation will be over real soon and I will be able to get on with my life; with the whiners or without, doesn't really matter.

Mrs. Lavoy for maliscious prosecution, star witness Matt Taylor perjury

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

Looks like my new trial will be before a jury. I still haven't received a date yet but I thought that I should check in or else my post would be forgotten about.

I did find out that I can't sue their star witness Matt Taylor until he is convicted of perjury. That means that the same DA's office who has brought charges against me will have to be the ones to prosecute him. I'm sure they'll screw it up somehow. I can, however, go after Mrs. Lavoy for maliscious prosecution.

I still can't believe that this has lasted this long. At the last court date, Matt kept walking by me in the lobby of the courthouse mumbling insults at me under his breath. I finally had enough and chewed his a*s out. All the police heard was me and they chewed me out. They said that this was some kind of witness tampering. They didn't press charges however. When they found out that Matt instigated the situation I believe they changed their tune a little bit. Of course I received no apology from them. But then again it was the officer who looked stupid.

By the way, Matt, the DA's star witness, showed up at my house again. I think that this time I made it clear that he needs to quit all his crap and leave me the hell alone. This guy is a real moron. I guess all those years on drugs will foul your thinking. He actualy showed up at court last time in shorts and was carrying his Dungeons and Dragons handbook! What an idiot! He probably played soccer growing up, too!

Anyways..........I'll give you an update when I get a court date.

I worked in the corporate arena for Pizza Hut before Amerihuts came along..

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

Aaron, your situation happens all the time. Amerihuts structures their corporation so that employees who know right from wrong always remain at the bottom. I quit working for Pizza Hut when Amerihuts took over due to the lack of sensitivity for their employees. Sexual harassment and unsanitary food preparation were an issue before Amerihuts, but after the buyout these practices became rampant. I just couldn't be a part of such a dishonest company. I wasted 12 years of my life with Pizza Hut.



Preston Arnwine is the reason that I quit. He'll do anything as long as it pleases his corporate bosses. This is not limited to lying to his employees and disregarding state and federal law. Just like the man above said "he's a real corporate snake." Obviously, Preston has never had a course in business ethics or,for that matter, any college level training for management.



I tell everyone what I know about Amerihuts. I pray that someday, companies like this will not be allowed to operate in our state.



You should have no problem suing Amerihuts for any backpay. Amerihuts is obligated to pay it regardless of the outcome of your criminal trial. I know this because I'm a secretary for one of our local judges now. Hopefully, one of these days, I will have enough time to convince our State Attorney's Office that Amerihuts and Pizza Hut should be brought up on charges for violating the laws that our legislature put in place.



I would just like to say one more thing. The issue was brought up that RGM's lie about the hours of their employees and themselves. This is true. It happens in every store under Amerihuts authority. This is fraud. Plain and simple.

Aaron, you keep fighting. I'm confident that a 12 person jury of your fellow Blount Countians will find you not guilty. I'm also confident that once this goes to civil court, Judge Brewer will gouge pizza hut's bankroll. You know that this situation is because of the trash that has come to our state to get on TennCare. This is a real shame. Pizza hut is a real shame. I've never eaten there and never will. I like Alexandro's pizza. It's REAL Italian pizza.



Pizza Hut should not only let you come back to work, but they should also be paying your lawyer. Afterall, ALL THE LIABILTY is there's to bear. They ought to let you boys who deliver carry guns to deal with any emergency that might arise concerning your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.



Sounds like this ARNWINE guy is a real corporate snake. Obviously he got in his position of authority by putting amerihut's corporate policy above right and wrong. I hope he burns in the fires of hell and damnation along with the people who have brought you up on charges. Good luck my fellow citizen of blount county!

Aaron, your real issue should be with the district attorney's office.

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

I am a life long resident of Walland in Blount County Tennessee. I have seen the good and bad of our local government. While you have a legitimate issue with how pizza hut is treating you, you should have more of an issue with the District Attorney.



Everyone in this county is entitled to a speedy trial. The fact that our local prosecuter has saw fit to drag this out, just goes to show that they have no case. They know that a judge won't convict you in general sessions court based on what little ecidence theyhave. They want to push up into a grand jury. That way, they have the opportuntiy to sawy a jury and pick the people included in the pool. They wil try to pick people who they think will find you guilty. This is simply wrong. Maybe our local district attoney should remeber that he is an elected official. I think that their terms run for 8 years which is a shame. We need shorter term limits so that we can get people out of office who are so boldly wasting the the time and money of our citizens.



Good luck finding a job, Aron. I hope that you can get back into the field that you went to school for. I'm sure that anything would be better than deliverying pizza.



I almost forgot to complain about the pizza hut in Townsend. The customer service is horrible. The food is even worse. The last time we went there we ordered sandwiches. 8 sandwichs to be exact. Evry one of them was frozen solid when we got home. When we called to complain, the tadpole manager told us to thaw them out in the microwave. Can you believ that? I'll never eat at another pizza hut as long as I live.

Aaron, Amerihuts has done you maliciously wrong.........

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

Amerihuts HAS completely dropped the ball on this matter. What they are doing is letting you foot the bill for their fight. I think that it is blatently obvious that these folks, who have brought charges against you, are just wanting some kind of compensation from your Pizza Hut in Alcoa. This happens all the time. Just like you said, every piece of trash out there wants something for nothing.



I know who your area coach is. I can't believe that he would handle this in such a manner. If you are convicted for such a crime, then these people will take you to civil court. Believe it or not, Amerihuts is then required to provide you with a competent attorney other than the public defender's office. If you then lose your civil case, Amerihuts will have to pay the settlement, not you.



Sounds like the district attorney's office isn't any better than Amerihuts. These so-called professionals should have been able to see that these folks claims are fraudulent. I guess they'll prosecute anybody in order to keep the dockets full. Where again are you located? Because I don't want to live there under such a fascist regime.



P.S. I have researched this situation within the company at amerihuts. Their star witness, who helped this liar capitulate his story, should have been fired a long time ago. Good luck with your fight against Amerihuts! I would say that you are not only going to win your criminal case, but any civil trial that you decide to launch will be a sure thing. Amerihuts at least has to pay your back-pay regardless of the outcome. Amerihuts has been trying to deny LAW for a long time now. Maybe this will halt such malicious activity by management. I hope that I've helped.

By the way, as long as I am still considered an employee of PIZZA HUT aka AMERHUTS, I will be suing you for all my back starting on the day you suspended me until the present. Better get your check book out. I don't need the money, I just want to prove that PIZZA HUT doesn't dictate what is right or wrong. Pizza Hut doesn't dictate STATE LAW either.



If I lose from some strange reason, the people can't sue me. They'll be suing Pizza Hut. For the same reason, I am able to sue PIZZA HUT due to one of THEIR employees making false statements to the police.



I'll keep you folks posted....................

My new court date is September 9th. I still haven't heard anything from pizza hut concerning my employment.

Stating the obvious.... (7-28-04)

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

Once again my court date has been pushed off until september. I'm not really sure why or if this deal will ever be over. I just didn't realize that in Blount County, TN, that a person could us our county courts to maliciously persecute someone. Pizza Hut isn't any better when it comes to such underhanded practices.



I would like send a special thanks to Ryan from Colorado who saw fit to state the obvious. Trust me boss when I say: PIZZA HUT, AMERIHUTS, and YUM are all liable in this matter and have all been named in a suit along with Matt Taylor and Mama Lavoy. Thanks again to the ripoof report.



SPECIAL NOTE: If you're going to offer me advice, make sure that the information will be useful.

AmeriHUTS is a Franchise company....

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

Please keep in mind that AmeriHuts is a Franchisee of Pizza Hut... basically, they pay pizza hut to use the name and products, but the stores are not owned or operated by Pizza Hut, or their parent corporation, Yum! Brands, INC. All issues regarding human resources, bookkeeping, etc. are the responsibility of the franchise company.

7-9-04 I'm suing him along with Pizza Hut and Mama Lavoy

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

just wanted to let you folks know that nobody showed up for court again. My new court date has been set for 7-28-04.



I didn't realize that in this country of law and order that you could use the court system in such a manner. This is the biggest farce that I have ever had the misfortune of being involved in. Is this a joke? Am I dreaming?



These people are just as underhanded as pizza hut. When my attorney gets done with these s**t-heads, maybe they'll realize that you just can't do this to people.



By the way, their witness, Matthew Taylor, didn't show again. So at this point, I'm suing him along with Pizza Hut and Mama Lavoy. We should run pinko fruitcakes like this out of the state along with the rest of the trash on TennCare. These folks are simply a disgrace to the planet.



I'll let you folks know how it goes.......

he offered me my job back

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

On Friday 6/11/04 i had a meeting with Preston Arnwine. At this point he offered me my job back. The one stipulation was that I sign a form which had a bogus claim in its text. Not that i had done anything wrong, but that i was simply mistaken in going back outside. Obviously Pizza hut doesn't understand how property disputes are handled in this state, nor do they understand just how automobile insurance works when they're not aware of people using their car for delivery purposes.



I want to make one thing clear. I feel that at this point, Pizza Hut is actually making an attempt at finally doing the right thing. This was certainly not the case at the beginning of this fiasco. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure some fruitcake with America Huts could drop the ball at any moment. The only difference at this point in the game is that Pizza Hut knows that i won't be bullied by them or anybody else.



The fact that i was offered my job back really changes the scope of a possible law suit against Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut also offered to pay all my Back-pay pending the outcome of the trial on 6/23/04. That's quit a bit different from what they originally stated. I think the moral of the story is to know your rights as a working man, because your employer most likely doesn't; especially if they are Pizza Hut on Hannum St. in Alcoa, TN.

If Pizza Hut had wanted to help, they should have stepped up to the plate a month ago.

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

Just wanted to let you folks know about the most recent development concerning the communist regime at Pizza Hut on Hannum St. in Alcoa, TN.



On 6/5/05, i received a certified letter from Pizza Hut's (American Huts) insurance company somewhere out of Georgia. This letter stated that since this incident happened while i was on the clock, they would be handling all claims from the accuser and that if they saw fit to pay off this little freak then it is just tough luck for me. This is typical rhetoric that i have grown accustomed to from Pizza Hut.



Pizza Hut in the course of pushing an overpriced product, have created a situation that is not conducive to the safety of its drivers. My meaning is this: Pizza Hut has given so much free food away to people who are undeserving that the time has come that everyone is wanting something for free. These trashy folks will do anything including defaming a driver for no reason in order to get a free pie. On several occasions, I have informed Pizza Hut that calling in a bogus report on a driver is defamation and is ultimately prosecutable. Doesn't matter though... Pizza Hut has their own socialist policies created by overzealous marketers and other corporate fruitcakes who have never had the misfortune of working as a delivery driver.



With all due repect, Pizza Hut has been informed by my attorney that we don't need any of their help. These folks evidentally don't understand that I'm suing them too. If Pizza Hut had wanted to help, they should have stepped up to the plate a month ago. Just a little too late there jackasses! Now deal with it!



Any further updates will be sent ASAP

Pizza Hut should never be allowed to conduct business in the manner that has become acceptable

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

After having time to consult with my attorney, we have decided to go after Pizza Hut for everything that they're worth. Employers like this (Pizza Hut) should never be allowed to conduct business in the manner that has become acceptable. I honestly feel as though our state government doesn't realize what's going on in the resteraunt business, especially delivery.



All of the good jobs have been replaced by entry level work with foreigned-owned companies. These companies bring their own upper level people with them. The general population of this state is simply looked at as a cheap and uneducated work force. Most of these companies are exempt from having to pay local property taxes and they receive other underhanded incentives, while my family whose been in this state for 7 generations gets nothing but poor roads and over-zealous law enforcement.



I don't mean to ramble.... but it's important that people understand that all the good jobs are leaving here and going to Mexico. The only option is service industry jobs such as the restaraunt business or entry-level positions with foreign owned companies for little money. You see, very few people move from these entry level positions unless they are able to prove their wothiness to the company by doing something underhanded to their fellow Tennesseans.



I will not turn my back on this state. I will not turn my back on my community and allow Pizza Hut to operate using these tyrannical practices. I've said it before and I'll say it again: no corporate policy ever overides RIGHT and Wrong, especially when this policy violates state law.



I have been in contact with several local state representatives who have showed legitimate concern for this situation. Maybe by the time that I talk with Governor's Office, he and his cabinet will be expecting me. I will be sure and let you folks know how this goes.



Tennesse is known as the Volunteer state in case you didn't know. I have a lot of history here. I don't endorse any university anymore due to their lack of concern for their students who are actually from here. I feel a sense of duty at this point in my life to right a few wrongs. This duty starts with companies like Pizza Hut. Things will either change, meaning you will have no policies which violate our state and local laws, or you can get the hell out of this state. Afterall, you have to live by the same laws the rest of us do.



By the way, Thanks to the RipOffReport for giving me a forum to be heard. There's no law in this country as great as the freedom of speech and the right to bear arms to protect this freedom. Thanks Again!
