hardwood floor instilation and refinishing / unethical business practice
The owner of this company leads with false pretence. He will give you an estemate and allow you to believe that you will have 3 generations of experience doing your floors. He may even lead you to believe that he will be personally involved in the process. You will see that he will show up in the begining, collect his deposite, and be on his way. He will have his underpaid employees, and sometimes under age, do the work for him. He does do some work himself, but not the hard stuff. This goes in part of not haveing a good track record with his lanlords. A good example is his recent stay at 800 rt. 50 in Scotia. Recently when one of his employees recieved a ticket for a suspended registration on a company vehicle, he not only failed to provide him with documentation needed by the court, he left the employee to pay the fine himself. If you think about getting a job with this company, be prepared to be under-paid, and if you find a better job but don't give him a notice of 2 weeks, don't expect to get paid for the last days you woorked. There are multiple employees that he still owes money too.
I don't know about you, but to have a "family oriented company" with this kind of business practice woorking in my house might be a little scary.
