In responding to any requests to be interviewed by Scott Avery via "Mitsy," his presumed secretary, be prepared to be submitted to the following treatment as I was. I arrived 10 minutes early for an 11:30 "interview" at this multiply named company's location in Melville. I thoroughly researched the company in order to properly prepare and noted the multiple complaints.

I was seated in the firm's vestibule by two affable and smiling receptionists who asked me to fill out an application.

At 11:35, Mitsy emerged from the interior office and informed me that Scott Avery had an emergency and could not see me. Mitsy then stated that I would be called.

Clearly, the "receptionists" signalled by e-mail or other non-verbal manner to Mitsy that I was of a certain age. I firmly believe that this resulted in my being sent away. I am impecably groomed and dressed and have an impressive resume. My only fault isthat I am no longer young.

It is abusive to be treated in this manner and although I cannot prove how this abuse occured, the public should be aware that prospective intervierwers are thus shoddily treated by this company if not subject to the abuse of age discrimination. . I am a Managing Director of a company and a veteran officer (Major, retired) of the U.S. Marines and do not appreciate being treated in this manner and could not stand silently by and allow another human being to receive a similar and abusive treatment.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Federated Payments is Renown for our Diversity

AUTHOR: not happy - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, July 18, 2012

At Federated Payments, we are well known regionally and in the industry for the diversity of our personnel.  In fact, we recognize that the foundation of our continued success originates from the acquisition of talented individuals who come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience.

Named to the 2011 Inc. INC. 500/5000 list of fastest growing companies, Federated Payments employees over 300 personnel and handles the processing needs of over 100,000 merchant customers throughout North America.   

With this in mind, we are constantly interviewing for various positions to continue our sustained growth.  Mr. William Laraques age and experience had no bearing on the simple fact that Mr. Avery had an emergency that required his immediate attention off site and regrettably was left with no choice but to reschedule the interview.  Unfortunately Mr. Laraque chose to post this slanderous and inaccurate complaint that makes unfounded assumptions before we could contact him to reschedule.  The fact remains there are no complaints, multiple or singular, against our company in regard to age discrimination that Mr. Laraque erroneously refers to online or anywhere else.
