Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I advise to the public to stay as far away from this company and the men who own it - regardless if you are asked to sub-contract, employed by, or hire this company - I worked for this company during the summer of 2012 - from the very beginning the owner (or who I thought was the owner) told me that he was looking for someone to take over his business - with that being said I was offered a certain percentage of sales and percentage of the work being done - over the course of several weeks and after my work title changed about four times, I finally realized that this company, or should I say the man who owns it was a crook - I was told one week to do this type of work and then the next week I was told to supervise and to write up bids - the week after i might be told to just do sales and bids - the job changed every week and if I didn't do something the way Mr. McCormick wanted (such as when he wanted me come out for a meeting - at the last minute - on a certain holiday and when I couldn't make it he didn't call me for days) - I thought to myself how childish - the funny thing was that I never really saw all the bids, so I really never knew exactly how much money he was making or what my percentage was - the man who said he owned the company had the business in another man's name (hence the Joe Mormino or little joe as we called him) - the actual owner Ken McCormick lived in the marina on a small houseboat - there were so many different issues with this situation that I finally just had to tell him I wasn't coming back to work until he showed me the bids and paid me what he owed me - another situation that happened which may be the reason why he had the business in someone elses name was due to the fact that while Mr. McCormick owned another similar business along with a man by the name of  Dave ?  they had been sued by a customer for some terrible house repairs - so instead of taking care of the problem he then turned around and put the business in another person's name - if only I had known this from the very beginning I would have never started working for J.L.M. and our family would have been saved a lot of turmoil and stress - because of the fact in the way he treated me - leaving me in financial turmoil, we almost lost everything - so, please be award of this company when you look through a company called Service Magic Pros - stay away from this man and the company - both if you're looking for a job and/or house repairs - he is a crook from the word go -I'll leave you with the words my wife told me and how they rang so true - A double minded man is unstable in all his ways!

#4 Author of original report

Former Employee of JLM Construction

AUTHOR: sting - (USA)

To whom it may concern,

To the first person on this report of a customer Sasha. The reason they asked you to right the check out to joe because the business is in his name and he is using a personnel account instead of a business account through there bank. In addition, the Florida state law states that working under a classification of a handyman he doesn't have to carry a license but must pay the taxes to be able to work in the duvall county and to pay taxes at the beaches to work out there. He can have no more than 10 employees or he has to change he's business by tax coes and will have to carry insurance or workman's compensation. The website that you went to is a lead base company. He has to pay for the leads even if he doesn't get the job. I worked for him and he was suppose to pay me a percentage of a 60-40 split. He would not show me the invoices and plus he was suppose to give me a 10% on all deals closed by me. In addition, he was suppose to give me a 5% comp. on all jobs that he closed. He would not put it in writing and when I typed up the agreement he would not sign it. The company is not in Ken McCormick. The company is in Joe Minano; this is because if anything happens it will not come back on him it will go to Joe and he does not know or doesn't have the money to pay back the customer or employees that he has ripped off. He owes me about 1500 to 2000 dollars that he shorted me on. If I was you I would not let them do any work for me and would ask for the money back. I would contact Joe Senna (Hire a Handyman) the number is 904-221-3453 He is licensed and insured. The reasoning off this is because I worked for him after I worked For Joe (Ken McCormick) and he is a great guy and will do a great job for you. I forgot if he wrote out a contract with you and gave you a date of when he will start and doesn't then you can ask for the money back because of breaking the contract agreement. In addition, Check with other contractors to make sure they are not over charging you to much.

This is for the guy that is working for him. I would try your best to collect your money. Afterward, I would find another job. You should contact Joe Senna and see if he has an opening. He started me out at 14.00 a hour. At first, Ididn't get full weeks at first then I averaged about 30 hours a week. Read the first part of the post and it might help you on this matter. In addition, If he has not paid he's taxes to work in the area and you allow him to do work or you do work for him you can be fined and can loose you chance of being able to do sub-contract work. You can pick up your own liability insurance. You can get on-line and make up your own business name and submit it which it isn't cheap and then pay taxes for duvall county and at the beaches. In addition, Look online to get liability insurance of 300,000.00 for about 70.00. The total cost might cost you about 300.00 to become your own business. Then after you do that you can open a business account a your bank. They will give you different types to choose from. If you need to contact me you can by my e-mail of

I wish you'll the best on this matter.

JOE aka Ken, is a scam con man, we just found out that he dose not have a business lic. that his 2012-2013 taxs have not been paid, that he promise my husband 40% of each job and has not gotten paid all that is owed him. That he dose not pay 40% to employee's, That Joe aka Ken, scam my husband out of pay!!! and get the work and keeps the money of himself Ken McCormick.

 That Joe aka Ken has scam his employee we found out on the job that his paychecks no good, that he can not make payroll that Joe aka ken is using the payroll or contract money to support his own life style, that he is using clients money on his own needs and not paying his employees.

That several clients have found out from this web cite and others that ken is scammer that he has con his employee's, his clients. Joe is using some one else as a front to conduct business that while on the job us employees found out the truth. STAY AWAY FROM JLM CONSTRUCTION joe and/or Ken McCormick.

AUTHOR: Shasha - (United States of America)

I am very interested to know more detail about your situation.  I wrote a check on 1/11/2013 for $900 to Joe Mormino.  The first check made out to JLM Construction and he asked me to instead write it out to him.  I am curious as to your thoughts if he will actually come back to do the work.  Please respond ASAP.  Thank you
