Stay away from Gary Schatz!!!!
After being employed by Gary Schatz from March to the end of July 2009, I told him I was going to quit as I found a permanent position. A few weeks later I was going through my invoices and noticed I had not been paid for all of them. I immediately contacted Gary Schatz to explain the problem. He said to e-mail him a copy of the invoices and he would take care of it. The amount that was still due to me was $585.50.
Gary said that a check was sent to me and he will verify what happened. A day later he told me the check had my incorrect address on it and it was returned. (I dont see how this is possible as it was not the first check that was sent to me). A week later I received a check in the mail for the amount of $147.00. I called Gary to find out where the balance of $438.50 was and he told me to send him all the invoices to verify what happened.
Two days later Gary sent me the following e-mail:
Stuart, You were correct, there were some time cards missing. However, the client would not pay all of the bills sent to him for $300 of which you billed me $200.00. As per terms of our contract, you will only be paid on money collected from the business, so I have deducted it from your pay and will send you a check out today for $237.50. This will conclude our business. Gary
I finally received a check from him in the amount of $238.50 of course there is still $200 due. I tried to call Gary about this and he hung up the phone on me, would not return my calls either. Now I dont know what type of business he is trying to run. If an employer is not paid by a client, it has nothing to do with the employee. The employee will still get paid. I have been trying to contact Gary for months about this. Every time I tried calling, he would not answer the phone and not reply to any e-mails. The only way I could get in touch with him was to call from different phones where he did not know the number.
As for the e-mail he sent me above, he is lying I contacted the client that Gary claims did not pay and actually have a copy of the invoice. Gary originally charged the client for the installation of 8 computers and 8 printers. I did the installation with another technician employed by Gary. Only 6 computers and 6 printers were installed. The client paid Gary for the work he did and not for the extra 2 printers and 2 computers that were never installed. The client also tried to contact Gary about this and again Gary did not return the calls. So in actuality, Gary was paid in full for the job (I have proof).
I strongly urge everyone to stay away from doing work for Gary Schatz as you will be scammed. This is not the first time Gary Schatz has ripped someone off look at the following link: http://www.ripoffreport.com/Fast-Teks-Gary-Schatz/Employers/Fast-Teks-Gary-Schatz-On-sit-W765D.htm
