Terrible Company - dont pay - and cheat on paychecks when they do
Bike Mechanic (Former Employee) – Milton – 3 July 2018
First of course you are an independant contractor so you have no protection from the usualy government sources.
Here is my experince:
Theyll promise you the moon that youll make all kinds of money. Sounds good right.
First phone call they try and sell you over priced tools and repair stands, they insist you need them. You don't.
First paycheck, don't count on getting that training pay they promised. They "forgot to add it on your paycheck" but they'll blame you somehow.
Your second paycheck will also be incorrect as much as they think they can scam without you noticing. If you call them on it once again theyll blame you, and play stupid. Suggesting you didnt send in your invoices or that you filled them out wrong. And youll be sure you did but because you're new you'll buy it.
Third paycheck get ready. There will be whole days, usually two or three simply missing. "Oh we paid you on the last paycheck, or no it goes on the next one" even though you have the pay schedule right in front of you.
Fourth paycheck if you haven't quit already. More screw ups, more errors, they start pretending to blame each other, or make you talk to multiple people. Then maybe theyll know by this point you are keeping very good track and pay you. But theyll still say you made errors, which you didnt, and claw back on your payckeck.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WORK AS A BIKE BUILDER FOR THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!
You don't have to meet them in person
