ED Magedson – Founder
Steve Doletsky, Liberty Tax Service3739 49th Street North Saint Petersburg, Florida United States of America
I had worked for Liberty as an office manager for eight years prior to Steve buying th office I worked in. He kept me on as the office manager. WOW, what a nightmare. He reguired his managers to work 80 plus hours a week ( I still have an email from him telling us that we had to do that) and he was VERY demanding. It is Steve's way or the highway basically. He does not promote John Hewitt's philosphies at all. Iloved Liberty until I worked for Steve.
Steve came into my office (Hudson, FL) on March 18th and said that he was going to make a management change, did not tell me why, but he did state to me that he was going to pay me for the remainder of the week and that is I told all my fellow co-workers that I was resigning for medical reasons that he would pay me the bonuses that I had earned up to that point. I think he asked me to to this as working for Steve was nothing like we were used to and he knew that I had loyal employees and if he fired me, they would also quit. Well I did jut as he had asked and told all my fellow co-workers the story that he had asked me to tell them. He also asked me to help Bob, the new manager with any info that he might need. This I also did. Well , I lived up to my part of the deal but Steve did not. Bonus time came and went and I did not see even a penny even though I had earned $2900.00!!! I have since talked to others who have worked for Steve and none of them were paid what they should have been paid according to Liberty policy. But I guess as a franchisee he can do what he wants to do.
I feel Steve used me..........he had me work 80plus hours a week and pay me for 40 as I was salaried and then did not pay me the bonus that he said he would pay me. BEWARE - do not work for Steve Doletsky. There are some very nice franchisees in Liberty but he surely is not one of them.
