Went to work an Sage Technical Services, Blackfoot Idaho, on 06-11-2012, as a custodian/secretary.That alone should have warned me off, but it didn't.
Filled out employment papers, like normal. I was told I'd be working part time, $8.00 an hour, for a probationary period of 4 weeks. I'd then get a raise to $8.50 an hour, and in another 4 weeks, when I started taking on more responsibilities, I would go up to $9.00 an hour. On Wednesday, 06-13-12 the secretary, Audra, told me they had no idea how they were going to pay me.
When Friday, 06-15-2012, came around, Lynn, the manager or that office, told me that I was a "private contractor", no taxes taken out of pay, no workers compensation, on unemployment benefits. I was also informed that the length of my probationary perioc would be decided by Lynn, and would be at least 3 months before I saw even the first raise. If that wasn't bad enough. they attempted to pay me with a personal, out of state check that I cannot get cashed anywhere.
All I want is my 6.5 hours of pay ($8.00 per hour) as promised. When I told Lynn that I could not get the check cashed anywhere, he told me that that is how they pay their "private contractors" and that it was my problem. I gave him back his check (I did keep a copy for myself), and left.
I know I got shafted big time, I don't think they ever planned to promote me up to anything, or give me any raises.It was just a ploy to get someone who's been unemployed for over 1 1/2 years to work for nothing.
