IPI, INC — Very moody person
I was hired by joey taylor out of charleston west virginia owner of ipi as a foreman. he has a bad habit of cursing his employees and making them work on there own time loading material for the next day work day, makes you ride to and from the job site with no riding time, and in some cases could be 1 to 2 hrs. if you are late he wants to curse and carry on..
i traveled from hartselle alabama to newmartinsville w.v. to work, at first it wasnt to bad but after awhile it changed, the cursing started. he left me sitting 4 days not working with no notice, made his employees stay at his so called farm or pay your own motel it was a nasty 2 story house in the middle of no where, that way he had control of you.
i ran a job for him at dents run w.v. because he had pulled off that job was to ashamed to go, 4 guys and myself finished the job ahead of time, (the 4 guys sand blasted) i was the foreman, he subed the painting out to another company, which wasnt suppose to happen (no subs). he told lincoln contracting the painters were ipi employees, he had me stay 2 days watching them. the second day he had a meeting with me and the other 4 guys lasted about 1 hour, they didnt get paid for that,
i came to his farm that evening, he came around around 6;30 cursing and going on, because 2 guys were gone with his truck, him and 2 or 3 guys started loading material for the next day, i went in to eat i had worked all day 9 hrs. he said hurshel i expect the foreman to help (note im on my own time) i said i would have helped if asked i had to eat, he started his cursing and acting a fool told me i was fired for not helping to get in my car and go back to alabama so i packed my stuff and left, joey told all 5 of us if we finished that job on time we would get a bonus well he fired me so he kept my $500, 00 bonus he had just fired a foreman a few days before i got there for a nonsense reason, i traveled 636 miles to work not be treated like a second class citizen, i feel joey owes me my 500.00 $ bonus because i seen that the job at dents run was finished ahead of time, 140$it took me to get home, 76$ for a motel i had worked all day and i couldn’t drive all night long i had no cash i charged all to my visa card, plus much more for firing me for no reason (wanting me to work for free on my own time) bottom line he couldnt control me i stood up to him, and he threw one his temper tantrums.. and fired me.. most of the time he is a real nut, you never knew from day to day how he was gonna act.my bills come due whether i work or not thats why i traveled from alabama to west virginia to work 636 miles.
