Ameriquest is running a sweat shop with it's own IT staff by forcing us to work endless hours of over time and not compensating us for it. We are always promised comp time, and bonuses, but most of us never see them. Sooner or later, someone needs to come forward and sue them for major labor law violations.

Not only does Ameriquest break the law by literally robbing all of their customers, but they screw their own employees too. No wonder they make money hand over fist. Someone needs to stop the abuse. Most IT people work an average of 6 days a week and 60 hours a week. We are spent and completely burned out, and don't know what to do. We don't have the resources to fight them legally.

Perhaps if we can get enough people together we might have a class action against Ameriquest for all of these Labor Violations.

Ameriquest is a terrible place to work. If working endless hours, and your family or life means nothing to you then be my guest and work here. We're all stuck in this shithole until we find other jobs.

IF YOU ARE AN IT WORKER DO NOT WORK AT AMERIQUEST. THIS IS THE WORST COMPANY EVER... I WARNED YOU!

It's About To Get Much Worse on You Guys

AUTHOR: Beercanthickness - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Thursday, September 29, 2005
You think you have it bad now, wait until Mariano starts rolling out the new PhotoShop initiative. Maybe you didn't hear about it yet. Check out this press release from the Atlanta meetings:

----For Immediate Release----

Mariano Demarin, Vice President of Sales for Ameriquest Mortgage Company, today announced a strategic partnership with the Adobe Corporation (NASDAQ NM:ADBE). The agreement calls for Ameriquest to purchase at least one licensed copy of Adobe's best selling PhotoShop software suite for each Ameriquest retail location throughout the United States. Adobe will train all existing Ameriquest employees on the proper use of PhotoShop, and will conduct formal training at Ameriquest's "Launch Pad" sales training for new associates.

When asked what this means for the future of Ameriquest's business, Demarin said, "This is nothing more than a reflection of Ameriquest's commitment to continuous improvement. Exacto knives and Elmer's glue is very "old school", and as you can see by our recent personnel decisions, we're moving away from "old school", and moving towards a day where our bullshit is not so easily recognizable by state regulators and our borrowers. The cost of equipping our offices with this extremely valuable tool is a mere fraction of what it would cost us to continue getting caught. We are hoping to soon integrate PhotoShop with our existing systems such as SNAP, Empower, Lotus Notes, and Image Quest. It will take our people a while to learn the new system, but we believe that the fear of losing their jobs will motivate our fine Mortgage Specialists to do the right thing, and learn the new system.

Demarin explained that the up-front costs associated with the implementation of the new software will be paid by lowering commissions for Mortgage Specialists and Branch Managers to near record low levels.
