Complaint Review: Wagner Consulting International LLC, Sascha Wagner Owner - New York
Wagner Consulting International LLC, Sascha Wagner Owner VIP Translations This company does not pay its linguists under a garden-variety of lies, excuses and covering for the owner New York
The company has a terrible record of paying its linguists late. Right now, they are 11 days overdue and they do not care about their linguists getting bank overdraft for not being able to pay their bills on time.
They say, "You are one of our most preferred linguists" (HR Manager); or they say, "I do not know what is going on, I know I would pay you if I could," (Gino, PM Manager for USA); or, how about this one: "You are one of our preferred linguists, and so sorry to see this happen to you. I just talked to Sascha Wagner (the owner) and he reassured me that you will get paid right away!" (HR). But no, the payment is not made.
I worked for them over 2 years and only a handful of times did they pay as promised, on the 10th. But they were never late by this much! They purposely recruit rookies who may not be experienced enough to only accept work flor which they have a signed contract. Right now, they owe me about 3,000 with another 3,300 already partially billed (except for work done in this month), and they know what they are doing is perfectly illegal, but they hope that people like me have no other choices but to wait it out, in the hope of getting more work from them in the future.
The finances are handled by a Natalia Wagner who is a family member of the owner. She is saying that "Sascha had to step out of the office (as if he would be there regularly but no, he appears to be traveling all the time) because he has to renew some banking key that expired." Why would a change to the bank access code take 11 days, they do not have an answer to this question.
They pay some of the lowest per word compensation to linguists, have last-minute, urgent deadlines for the majority of their projects, and then even that is not paid in a reliable manner. How they can get away with this and still remain in business, is beyond me. Additionally, the company's HQ office is hard to find, as they do not publicly list any firm address. If they do these things to their so-called favorite linguists, I do not even dare to find out what they can do to those who deliver less than perfect translations! Stay away from this company. They are scam artists. My lawyer is looking into this right now, but in the interim, I cannot pay my bills and Wagner knows it!
