i worked for p.h. for 10 years as a maintaince tech,was on beck and call every day except xmas and thanksgiving and vacations.I repaired all the heat,air,refrigeration,not to mention installing about six total complete a/c units in stores that did not have enough cooling for the area,Ican verify the ones I did if need be.The day they fired me(preston) said I was cheating on the time sheets that all three of the techs. had to keep and fax to the office.They arrived at this conclusion by the fact that the times of turning the store alrm off did not jive with my time sheets,they even went so far as to call the stores and ask had they seen me at certain times.I tried to get them to see that when I left home for work that I would pick up repair parts.supplies to do my job,and not straight to a store and cut off the alarm.They accused me of time theft,but the times that I went to thier homes and worked,and put in a complete system in mr Altons residence was perfectly o.k. and wasnt theft by them,but to top it off they didnt bother to check on the job i was doing, i only had one piece of equipment to my knowledge that  was broken the day they fired me.

THe worst thing they done was deny my unemmployment,I have been told they do that to everyone,but  I was 61 years old at the time,how many people want to hire a person that old? I tried to take them to court for discrimination cause i really think my age is the reason they let me go,but they said there wasnt enough evidence to go ahead.I  got the unemployment after hiring a lawyer(legal aid) and proving to preston that you cannot use an alarm code as a time clock,I also had been to his home and don pilgrims on company time. i hate the way corporate america fells they are above the rest of us.If they want to sue me over this i am on social secuity now so they wont get much.I have always heard what goes around comes around i just hope some day they get thiers,dont let me forget about the fellow i worked with and taught him every thing he knows(he wsa able to install a system in his new home he built) how fast he threw me under the bus after he was promoteb above me a year earlier. this is my first computer please excuse the error

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Ex Employee can confirm also

AUTHOR: Steph - ()

 As an ex Crew Manager I can agree with everything the last ex employee said and also about Jack.  The Company would be a good company to work for until you get above Preston Arnwine.  I can tell you that when John Alton came into our store we all wanted to leave.  The man is the nastiest SOB you ever wanted to meet.  He doesn't even say hello to any of the store managers or employees.  All he does is yell and scream.  A friend from another store told me that one day he came in and said yeah today I'm a real human resources mood - I need to fire someone.  He is a nightmare.  Preston is a good guy.

 

Jack was great.  We work with so much old, broken down equipment and that man tried everything in the world to keep us going.  I heard from a couple of sources that John Alton said he was too old for the job.  They did call the stores to find out if he was there.  They fight every unemployment claim, but lose most of them.  They also follow employees around in their car.  Seriously this is all John Alton.  Whatever Preston does is because Alton orders him to.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I can confirm everything "Jack" is saying

AUTHOR: Confidential - ()

This man was not only a great employee, he was the only repair man that had any idea what he was doing. In a company where maintenence is a punch line, he was the only bright spot. Often times, they would have him cover as many as 3 territories (1 1/2 hours each way) because the other maintenance guy wasn't useful beyond changing a light bulb. They made constant promises to him even having him drive a broken down van for a while until they "found a good deal." They also constantly handcuffed him. He would tell leadership that a new make table or condenser was needed and they would tell him to do what he can until they have the money. He would do everything in his power including showing up every morning to check the leak. Inspection would come and they would blame it on poor maintenence when they chose to not fix it. They would even have him patch pot holes in the parking lot with a bag of filler and the tire on his van. H

 

e also did do every bit of that work at the personal homes of leadership.  I was a manager at one store that he covered. They were trying to fire him for at least 6 months.  I was told to call him on bogus calls and report if he showed up. I was called and asked times he was there. I was told to report any poor work he did. I can also confirm that the company's firing procedure revolves solely around not being held liable for unemployment. I was told to make a poor performing employees life miserable so he quit which makes it harder to receive benefits. We would pick apart the handbook and find reasons to fire people. If all else failed, we would default to "detrimental conduct". 

 

 

 

 

The owners think they are Bill Gates and are too good for you. If you contact a leader above your direct supervisor you are treated like a peasant sneaking into the kingdom. The company would deny biannual raises to minimum wage employees stating they couldn't afford it. They would rather spend the money on new hire training and on boarding and didn't understand that turnover was a direct result of empty promises. They 

 

fire employees that get hurt on the job if they can find anything they were doing wrong (ie. Not wearing non slip shoes) before they paid hospital bills. They would make employees work in stores with broken ac units for weeks before fixing. These people are dirty. Especially those above Preston. I hope you are well Jack.

Most true but not all

AUTHOR: Ellen - ()

 I will for sure no doubt think that Jack went to Preston Arwine and John Alton's house to do work.  In NO way did he do any work for Mr. Pilgrim.
