-Neil Stein of Print Smith / Copy King --will RIP YOU OFF!

Owner scams and hires people and never inteads to pay employees I am a Manager/Pressman who worked for Neil Stein I warm anyone who is lucky enough to read this report to stay away from this company They will eventually scam you It's hard to beleive they are still in business--thay bounce checks all over town.--They are undisputedly the worst experience in printing in all my 25 years.

If you like a horrible work enviroment in a state of Kaos and confusion and long hours that you do not get paid for --that is even IF YOU GET PAID! Than print smith / copy king is the right place for you.
CUSTOMERS--if you like poor service rip -- off quality and you never know when you will get your job--Neil and his partner Dale goes through so many employees a month--they can't focus on the customers needs.

I promise nothing but headaches and confusion assocciatiing in any way with this company..
I hope many others who have been SCAMMED by this company step forward and make a report--and help keep the Printing Industry -PROFESSIONAL in the Clearwater area.

seriously michelle? be honest.

AUTHOR: anonymous82 - ()

All you have to do is google Neil Stein. His mugshot pops up immediately revealing he was arressted for distributing a fake check. While your at it, google his daughter Jessica Stein, her mugshot also pops up revealing she was arressted the same year as her father for assault and battery of a police man. Michelle is also a failed business women, she tried to open a restaraunt and instead of investing, she asked friends and family for donations. The donations were received but the business was NEVER opened. This is a family full of crooks, criminals, and liars. Save your time and go to (((competitor's name redacted))).

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Re: That's too funny....

AUTHOR: Another former employee - (United States of America)

Aw, c'mon Michelle. Do you actually believe there is one person alive in the Tampa Bay printing industry that believes that rebuttal for one minute? First of all, I'm not the one that wrote the original report but I am a very happy ex-employee and agree with pretty much everything in the original report.

Let me get this straight - at one time, you're Copy King, then you're PrintSmith, then you're Countryside Press and now you're back to PrintSmith? And during that time, you've moved to what - 4 different address changes? I guess the company must be really booming or...shall we say...."bouncing"?? Yes, those checks aren't worth the paper they're printed on back then and they aren't any better now. Everyone knows your reputation in this industry so please, shut down and save landlords from having to kick you guys out again. And Dale, I really thought you had some redeeming qualities as an honest person, but guess I as deceived.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Disgruntled Ex-Employee

AUTHOR: Michelle - (United States of America)

This report is from an ex employee who was let go for poor work performance.  Our company has been in business for 14 years and we have an excellent reputation among customers and employees.  Contrary to this posting, we have employees who have been with us for over ten years, and several who have come back to work for us after several years of working elsewhere.  We are a professional organization with many long term customers.  It is a shame that an individual with a grudge can use this forum to disparage our reputation.
