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

I worked at mack hils/mack pro. Its a metal fab tool n machine shop, where they specialize in antique pick up parts and truck beds. In the last 6 months 5 people cut fingers off due to being intoxicated on alcohol, meth or weed. One guy whos been there a long time cut his finger off and told the co he had a dirty ua hes still there. One just got out of in patient for 30 days for beating his old lady in a drunkin rage also did 5 years for meth. The last day I worked everyone was s**t faced by closing time not me though but I didnt say anything.

I along with 30 others and more to come were laid off just weeks or maybe a month before bonus checks from profit sharing. How conveient with winter approaching. There has been so many rejected parts from companies and individuals ranging from welding things wrong, things being welded in the wrong places. Do these guys know how to read blue prints?? No certified welders working here folks and ya wonder why trucks get destroyed in a crash??? Also the open paint booth that spews over spray and fumes into the surrounding areas I wonder what damage to my lungs it caused??? I am not from here but I wish I had a job for the government traveling to different places investigating places like this, a sweat shop as everyone there calls it there.

I cant believe a place like this gets away with some of the things they do. Any way look for more about this place because I gave them the rip off report's e-mail address. Until then dont buy from Mack Hils ya never know which meth head welded it.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Wrongfully accused ..I would love to continue my employment at Mack Pro

AUTHOR: Erick - (U.S.A.)

I was recently accused of putting a letter on the rip off report and even got 3 threatining letters from the companie's lawyers, one was delivered to a friends house another was handed to me by the cleaner for the company at my new job,I will add a copy of that later.

For one thing I want to see the crediable evidence that I authered the letter,second I my self will be seeking a lawyer for defimation of my character whoever started the rumor.

I worked at Mack Pro from approx, April 14 until october 5.I enjoyed my job there and got along good with everyone. I even got $150.00 bonus from Mike Bowlby the CO of the company for working one weekend and got alot of production done.

Mike served in the military as I did and is a fare man,most people said they didnt like him and were intimited by him why? did they have something to hide? I very much like him and worked hard for the man and got rewarded for it.

I know of some of the dirt going on there but I was new to the company and who was I to trust to report people building them selves BBQ-grills, intakes for cars, dog houses, I even was given an awesome indian chief made out of metal that hangs on my wall that was made on the laser, actually I believe everyone on night shift got one,to keep my mouth shut.

So with people threatened I feel Im being set up, I know they wont call me back to work when business picks up where they should hire me back and keep an eye on whats going out the door with people. We also had two awesome BBQ's during the summer where Mike Bowlby came in and cooked for all three shifts on his own time who or what company CO would do that? Nobody I ever worked for.

I took pride in my work to ensure parts were packed and crates were built correctly so they werent damaged in shipping. I did a neat job and helped others even if it ment me getting behind because I could easily catch up. For this to happen hurts me deeply, I agree with some of the stuff that was posted as did Mike Bowlby when he phoned me to discuss this, but this is a very segerated incident and I heard more got laid off and the ones who did deserve it.

I would love to continue my employment at Mack Pro, but I can see there believing in the rumors so...Its sad to sacrifice a good employee a high school grad and still lives by the Marine Corps standards.I will close by adding the lawyers letter.

The only comment I have on this is that first I havent been showed anything with my name on it linking me to this second threatning letters I guess is typical for lawyers,I havent been found guilty of anything but yet this letter is so offensive and threatning.

Futher more if someother pissed off employee posts something here I will be accountable for that come on.I studied two years to be a State Trooper and go into undercover narcotic's but found my heart into building houses and carpentry which I am now back into.I know the law and my rights and I am sure this is far from over.
