About two weeks i saw an ad for a secretary position for a moving company making $12/hr. i had the knowledge and skills and got the job. Not knowing for starters this was the same moving company that moved my mothers furniture from her home, breaking almost all of it including a 1000 dollar sewing machine, broken table legs and when talked to patrick he said he would handle it later blocking her number and never answering the phone. My sister called him after telling him what his crew did to my mothers furniture and he used loud prefanity and ended by saying he was not paying for sh** then hung up. While working for him i noticed that he had character traits of a mental bipolar disorder or multiple personalities but i really needed a job so i put up with him. I always saw customers calling complaining they were cheated and even more all the on almost ever other move, a customer would complain about furniture being damaged. I would witness him then save each and every customer with a complaint and put DONT EVER ANSWER next to their phone number. He explained to me he would pay cash every friday for pay day. at first like i said hired for 12/hr within two days he lowered my pay to $9/hr without any proper notice. I realized i was then working for a very unstable company and with the things i witnessed i kind of felt with no money coming in how could he pay me?... I didnt bother because i thought "that could never happen". I got a text message to my phone an hour before i was suppose to be at work telling me basically im fired for no reason at all! Then to top it off when i went to the office to get my last check he has only put $168 for 40 hours! trying to rip me off ! saying the rest was for taxes! I explained to him thats not possible, then he told me fill out a w2 form then i can claim the rest of my check with the irs. within 30 seconds of me filling it out he grabs the paper out of myy hands and throws it outside. I could see his anger building up for no reason . I seen what type of person i was dealing with and told him im not leaving the office until i atleast filled out the form because he didnt even give me my whole pay check. Within 30 seconds later he pushed me out of the chair i was in and pushed me up against the wall. I could not believe it. He is over 200 lbs. keep in mind im only 108 llbs. I then told him i was not leaving until the police were called after he assaulted me and when the police got there he bluntly lied!!!! They told me basically there was nothing i could do because the stories dont match up  I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW NEVER EVER HIRE EMPIRE MOVERS/ EMPIREMOVERSOFHOUSTON.COM / 713-413-7018 / 832-647-9030 /832-594-0316. THEY HAVE SCAMMED ME ONE TOO MANY TIMES!!! WARNING
