I have been working for Osmos, a company located in Memphis, TN but am getting paid - temporarily - via Manpower. I've been working since August 7th and here it is September 18th and I've only been paid 2 checks!!!!!!!! I am supposed to get paid WEEKLY - not biweekly - not every 3 weeks - not monthly BUT weekly!
I have been given the run-around about my check for weeks now! They've lied and lied and lied and still have not produced a check! I have a family of which I have to support! I've spoken with a girl named Tasha who continues to lie for the compnay about my checks. Every week she claims that the check was mailed on the Thursday before! When I complained the first time, someone, who claims to have been the president, called and assured me that I'd get a check that Friday. I did get one, however, because it was in an envelope that was gold (Manpower's envelopes are white with the color bars across the top which is their emblem), I threw it away. No name on the envelope. It looked like junk mail! The first check came in their normal white envelope and had Manpower on it. I truly thing that they were hoping that I'd mistaken it for junk mail and throw it away - like I did. The second check that they sent (in the gold envelope) was for the third week of work. Whatever happend to the second week you may ask? Well, that was the week with the overtime on it. I was later told that a stop payment was placed on it!!!! I did not ask Tasha (the girl who works in that office in Cordova) to put a stop payment on that check. She was supposed to have put a stop-pay on the first check because I was so long in receiving it! That's what they want! They want you to put stop pays on a check but I have not since the first one!!!!! That's how I've caught them in lie after lie after lie! She (Tasha) use to claim that the check was sent the Thursday before but I never put another stop-pay on any check just to prove that they were liars!!!!!! Here it is the 18th of September and still I have not check and a family to support! I went online to file a complaint with the BBB. I was very surprised to see that they had a clean record! I've heard other horror stories about them being notorious about not paying their employees!!!!!! Many, Many stories but, for whatever reason, it's not getting told to the public and they're not getting exposed!!!! Well - IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've had one ex-employee tell me about places that wont even cash their checks!!!!!!! That person didn't have a banking account at the time and tried to cash a Manpower check and it was next to IMPOSSIBLE! Things that make you go hmmmm???????
