I have worked for jones auto outlet for 2 years and I have seen and heard a lot of stuff when I was working there. For example I have over heard car sales men talking about how they have switched peoples credit applications and one sales man actually showed me I asked him why they do it and he said we think certain people deserve a better car than others so all we do is just switch things with other applications so they can get a better deal than others.

I also have seen them take a trade in from people and after the people would leave the lot with a car that jones financed for them they would have me or another person drive the trade in to a different jones car lot to hide it then within a matter of a week they would go to the peoples house and reposed the car they got them in and then they would immediately take the repo to a car auction to get rid of it for a quick sale but jones would not tell them why they repoed the car and would not give back the trade in, basically would not tell the customer that they did not qualify for the car they originally drove home in and the customer would lose their car.

jones would also have people that were friends of theirs come into the dealer ship and any customer that would be their waiting for hours to find out if they got a deal on a car they would either tell the customer to come back another day or they would tell the customer that the price and the monthly payment would be a totally out rages price so they would have to not come back. the reason they treat people that way is jones auto outlet is basically owned by Mormons and the time i was working their they would treat non Mormons different than Mormons.

Since I worked their I have worked so much over time which they refuse to pay me i have asked the manager over and over about the over time pay but he would say, that will be one big separate check I would eventually get. Now its either dont bother me about it, I dont have time for this, or come back a different day. I have all the pay stubs and not one has any over time on them! I added up the hours and times it by 8.50 a hour it adds up to around 3,000.00

I know that Arizona's a right to work state but under the state labor laws no matter what any thing over 40 hours they company must pay over time, especially when they would say to me, you want to work extra hours and make overtime? .and also when i was working there I asked lot attendants from other jones car lots if they got paid overtime and they said yes one actually showed me his pay stubs and it had overtime on it. The only thing I can think of, is, because I am not LDS, Mormon, they have ripped me off. If this is an oversight the main owners are not aware of all this, then, maybe this report will get to them and they will rectify the situation.

You were definately taken

I agree with your actions and hope you get everything that is coming to you.

Just realize that their being Mormon doesn't have anything to do with it. They are deadbeats who happen to be Mormon. That is all.

My Mormon brother was working for a Mormon company and they fired him with no real cause while his wife is nine months pregnant. It has nothing to do with the church... they are just evil.

I personally wouldn't fire a man in his position until after the baby was born. But some people just have no integrity.

What's this?
This all started when i asked them about the promised health insurance because my wife was pregnant, they said i was entitled to the insurance about 3 months ago, they kept telling me to just wait a few more months and I would be put on the insurance.. And when i was asking about my over time and questioned them about questionable / unscrupulous activity by the sales people, they fired me and if that was not enough, they reposed my car illegally!!!!



One employee told me they fired me for asking about my overtime and asking too many questions that was none of my business.



The day they fired me, just before I was about to leave work they parked a Dodge Durango behind my car so i could not move it. To distract me, they called me into the office of the supervisor named (Allen Painter) he told me that i did not work for them no more because I took a lunch without telling no one but i did tell (Allen Underwood) that i was going to lunch and he said ok but i did also tell my supervisor that i told the manager i was taking lunch but he said i was lying and just making up some nonsense after me being a loyal, honest and hard working employee for 2 long years.. . Then he proceeded to tell me that i was behind on a car payment! How can that be! I have all receipts from my payments which were current. They, Jones Auto Outlet deducted my car payment every month from my paycheck! How the hell could I be behind on my payment, I always showed up for work, every day!



I asked if i could get my things out of the vehicle Allen Painter told me no and i needed to get off the property before he called the police, so i asked him if i could come by the next day to get my belonging out of it and he said i dont think thats possible i would have to talk to Allen Underwood about that. I called the next day and talked to Allen Painter to see if i could retrieve my belongings and he said that will be alright so me and my wife went to jones to get my things. When we got their Allen Painter walks up to me and stood in the way of the car door so i could not open the car door, i said excuse me and he stood their for a couple of seconds then he moved i opened the car doors and looked inside but all of my belongings were gone i asked him where all of my belongings went and he said i dont know and he also said i dont care what happened to your stuff it was all junk any ways! What!? There is a digital camera, new sneakers, a used but good toaster oven and bike parts that I just purchased, a DVD Player with about 10 DVDs, and a cold air in-take system for the car they repossessed.! Also missing other important paper work in envelop, all gone!



I have been calling them but they never want to come to the phone. As of Monday I was told again, my check for the overtime was coming. I am done with their promises. I am filing with the Labor Board where I hope to get 3 times what is owed to me according to Arizona law, and I will be contacting the Attorney General and who ever else will listen.



I will also let the Sheriffs department know about the illegal activity, and repossessing of cars they should not be taking. This seems to be fraud and Jones Auto Outlet taking advantage of the less fortunate.



Here is what I am owed, and I am going to get Rip-off Revenge and my money back too, if it takes me all year!



$3,724.00 - Overtime worked: (I will get 3 times that if I take this to the labor board)



$1,700.00 - (approx)Payments made on car they took from my paycheck every week.



$ 240.00 - Digital Camera

$ 35.00 - wifes almost new sneakers

$ 100.00 - approximate) miscellaneous tools

Other costs will be added every day for my time to collect this money.
