I responded to an ad on craigslist about an open housekeeper position that was paying $15 an hour to start. The owner Jay Johnson called me and asked me a few questions he said I would hear from some one by the name of Saudra, or Sandra. She called and asked her what my salary expectations where and I told her that the ad stated $ 15 an hour, so that's what I want. She then scheduled a demo interview session for Dec 15, 2012. Me and another person attended the demo session, Mr. Johnson also told us that the pay rate was $ 15 an hour and if you have experience and a car it would be more. I had previous experience so that's what I was expecting to be paid.

I was chosen for the position, and started on Dec 17, 2012 I worked 6.5 hours and was told that the client who's house we had just finished had give me and another employee and bonus for doing such a great job. I was told that the bonus would be on my check. I also worked on Dec 18, 2012 a another 6.5 hours. I called Mr. Johnson the same evening to ask about the pay because I had heard that some other employee's was told the same thing, but when they started it was only $ 11 an hour. He asked me if he had told me what the pay was at the demo, and I told him that I was told $ 15 an hour by him and Saudra, or Sandra. He started talking about how one can make $15 an hour. You need experience, "I have experience 5 or 6 years". You need a reliable car. "I have a car". You need to be on time. "I was there before the person that was training me". I had enough so I told him that Dec 18, 2012 was my last day.

And that I am aware that I was going to receive a pay check in the mail. But it is now January 16th 2013 and I haven't gotten any thing in the mail. He hasn't responded to any of my text's or phone calls. If this is how the business is operated than, something needs to be done. This is ridiculously insane to have to wait this long for a pay check.

Jay Johnson is a Fraud

AUTHOR: Unowhoiam - ()

Jay Johnson has done the same thing to me.  He and the other folks, Saundra Peterson and Tamara Hemsley, are nothing but thieves and con artists, puppets for Jay Johnson  They hide behind their cell phones and emails.   They are a bunch of cowards who will cheat, steal and lie.  They will not pay you for work you perform they just move on to the next victim.  This is how they operate.  They accuse folks of stealing when in fact they are a bunch of thieves themselves.  They make up lies and excuses for not paying you.  The company is not owned by Jay Johnson, the company is owned by Angela Byrd-Wright, principal at Lindsay Middle School Hampton Virginia.  

Jay Johnson is a ugly black man who thrives on stealing and cheating black people.  He takes advantage of black women.  He claims to be an ex police officer, ex military and a son of a bishop.  He  may be a son of a bishop but he is not God fearing.
