The Lies That The Owner Tells So You Cannot Collect Unemployment
Posted by on
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- I worked for Perimeter Staffing almost 3 months, the first week of working for that company told me a lot about the owners.  But I stayed there hoping it would get better and maybe in the future we would have a better understand of each other and the policies and procedures.  From the first day I was hired I was never given the policies and procedures. I receive them about a month later. As time passed the attitudes and things did not change from the owners.  The owners of this company would not tell you what they wanted you to know themselves, they would rather tell someone else or should I say send a message by a friend. The owner would not hire folks if they were fat, she would talk to folks with a nasty tone if you looked GHETTO and will refused to give you a job. I remind you this is a temp service and they basically staff for $8-11/hr jobs. This company is just a nightmare to work for.After I was terminated from Perimeter Staffing and filed for unemployment, I receive my eligibility paper and one of the reviews said that I was denied unemployment from being absent an excessive number of times. I had only miss one day from that company and that was the Friday before that following Monday, when she called and terminated me. She simply LIED. She also told them that she terminated me because of phone calls I made to my mother who has a MS number and making long distance phone calls was against company policies. Which was mention in a meeting about two weeks before I was fired.  She use that against me for unemployment. I think she is a joke!!! This company only keep employees for about 1 or 2 months.  Because of personal issue not job related issue. So I am warning anyone who works for Perimeter Staffing don't make plans or depend on that job because you are only guaranteed to be there  a week or up to 90 days.

Maybe you were fired for poor communication, your complaint is full of errors.

It's always suspicious when a company fires an employee and then produces a laundry list of offenses leading to the firing when the ex-worker files for unemployment benefits. If an employee was so bad, why did they last nearly 90 days? Employers should be required to produce discipline/misconduct forms signed by BOTH the employee and their supervisor.

I was at the same place once for 4 years and was not given the benefit of the doubt.I have had many employers that lied.Thyssen Krupp fabco in Springfield Tennessee is one.They claimed I did not call in when I was sick.It seems to me the department of labor could check the phone records and see I made several calls but they are in the gossip business as much as the fact checking business.There has to be a better way then one persons word against the other.they came up with a system that makes lawyers a necessity rather than forcing employers to work out thing and this only encouragesthem to lie so as to cover their own asses.

To Ghost of Doc- I realize it's been years since this was posted but since it comes up in a Google search I'm still commenting. Many companies agree to give new employees a "trial period" of 90 days to see if the candidate is a good fit. Then if after 90 days the employee does not work out then they can be let go. I've worked at employment agencies for over 10 years and it's very common to have a trial period in both employee and client contracts.

To TGuy101- you should have had the phone records YOURSELF to turn into the Department of Labor along with any other documentation that supports your case. It's not the Department of Labor's responsibility to look up phone records, they listen to the employer and employee and each is given about 30 days to give a response then the DOL makes a decision based on what they have.

I'm with spamfighter. If you don't sound literate and play the blame game instead of using common sense to back up your claim then it's your own fault. If you're working at any company where you're required to communicate with clients and you are not professional don't be surprised if the company you work for doesn't keep you around.

Employer / Owner Hold Paychecks
Posted by on
SUWANEE,ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- I worked for Perimeter Staffing for several months and what I witnessed in that time frame was unbelievable! The Managers for this company is husband and wife and they seem to be very professional until you are hired. They told all account managers to don't hire fat people. People that have baggy jeans on. Some positions are only filled by race and gender. They have everyone that fills out an application to do a post medical questionnaire and if anyone answers yes to any questions they are asked to leave. We were told they are a workers comp issue. Each applicant has $50.00 taken out of first check if placed on assignment, $25.00 for background and $25.00 drug test (this is to much money). The list goes on and on. When hiring the I-9 forms are not complete and associate files are left in the desk, not locked up, I have HR background all the files are not locked up and all over desk in the office. The turnover is to high! Nobody stays no longer than several months and when you leave the owners holds your paycheck for at least 30 days. No one that leaves the company ever get their expense check and early liquidation, direct hire payment.

Even though you were the manager at the time and it is your money. I am still waiting to get my paycheck, I have called Department of Labor Wages& hour Division. They did make an attempt to get my paycheck,but was informed that they will be holding my money and I need to go small claims court. This will cost me money I don't have. Please Help!!!

This Company has a history of taking employees earnings and it is time they are held accountable!!!

I'm curious. Did you report any of your allegations regarding potential workplace violations during your employment? Now that you either quit or got fired...those allegations don't hold much weight. I wonder why wage and hour would not enforce payment of your wages. Must be more to this story.

You need to turn your account over to the Kimbo Slice collection agency. You'll get your money in under 30 seconds!

It's a shame you had less than desirable results with this employment agency but most work the same. They fill positions based on the requests of their clients. Each client has his own expectations on what he is looking for in a temporary/perm hire. No way would I continue to business with an employment agency if what they sent was not what I requested. Anyone can go out to the street and flag down the next person if he didn't care what came into his business.

Employment agencies are supposed to "screen" individuals first. Their pay comes from the employer not the employee and the employer pays tidy amount above what the employee ultimately receives. If your final pay is being withheld you have a legitimate complaint. The screening process deserves no complaint.

If your paycheck is being withheld, for that you have a very legitimate complaint. However, if I were an employer looking for temporary staffing and it were a front-office position, if they sent me someone in baggy jeans, I think I'd have a talk with them regarding suitable candidates. If they didn't agree, I doubt I'd use them again. The same goes for heavy individuals if they are not appropriately dressed. Many heavy people are very presentable when dressed properly and do not present a problem if qualified.

Its true, I've worked for this company as well. This was the worst experience that I've had with working with an employer. I worked for them a couple of months as well, and in my short time there there were about 7 employees that came and quit. They are horrible to work for and they don't know how to treat employees or clients. They do ask staffing managers to discriminate against people walking through the door but that's not the worst part. The owners expect you to lie to clients. I was instructed several times to lie to my clients about. I still have not received expense report checks that were owed to me before I left. The owners talk to there employees any kind of way and they treat them like they are children. Oh and did I mention that you can't have a family working for this company because your hours are too long and they expect for you to not have a life working weekends when they tell you that it is a M-F job. I would go in at 6am and sometimes not leave until 9p because they make you feel like every little thing that we do is so urgent to get done right away. The owners play mind games and threaten to fire you if you do not do every little thing that they expect of you. The wife would go through the trash reading everything that was thrown away. She would also read through your emails and respond to some of your contacts about what was sent to you, and go through the phone records and call the numbers to see who they were. They set high expectations like driving around all day using your own vehicle with gas prices the way they are, and still want you to fill orders, process payroll, manage associates, while you're out everyday. Oh and you have to come back to the office before you go home no matter what time of the day it is. Every day policies and your responsibilities changed. You were expected to do more work without an increase in pay. We were doing the work of branch managers, sales managers, account managers and receptionists without the pay to match. I'm glad I no longer work for this company, I only wish I researched the company before working there and I wish they would pay me my money that they are holding.

Unforgettable, you registered for the second time on M3C on 6/2, didn't you? Or are you a relative of tangalang?
crazytoworkthere2 on 2012-10-12:
I am laughing as I read this. I worked for those crazy people also...it was several years ago and I just saw their company name as I was on goggle and thought I would see if they were still up to the same madness. The husband and owner is blind and his wife expects you to babysit him by driving him around in the car with you all day while you do your sales calls. It is really beyond akward because as you are doing these calls clients are looking at you weird. It is unfair because I had never been around a blind person let alone having to open the door and guide and lead him around while selling his business. The wife is so mean, rude to employees. I witnessed a high turnover in the 6 months that I was there. I got them some really great contracts and before they had to really pay me they let me go. I am shocked that these people are still around.
BigBoy on 2013-02-27:
Yes,this company is very unprofessional. I would not recommend anyone go there for work. The wife is very rude and not treat people with respect.

Rude

I went up there for an interview. Which Phyllis failed to tell me it was a staffing company! When, I arrived, it smelled bad, and she was very rude to people. When, I asked for a manager she said no one was available. When I called back up there... she was rude again and when I asked her why was she rude.... she just laughed and said... "what else do you want"? I was livid! This company should not BE OPEN at all! SAD! You should never treat anyone this way!

Perhaps Phyllis did not see the need to mention that a company named Perimeter Staffing, was indeed a staffing company.
Shayen on 2014-08-27:
I have to agree with the previous poster. Why would a company with the word STAFFING in their name feel the need to emphasize they are a staffing company? Beyond that, most people with an interview do a web search on the company beforehand.

The Consummate Unprofessionals
Posted by on
SUWANEE, GEORGIA -- I was hired by Perimeter Staffing and sent on my first assignment today. That first assignment was a complete waste of time as the 'client' was sent a professional chef when the specific term of 'dishwasher' was the intended target. Although I agreed to do dishes I was discouraged by the client to do so. I was told they would like me to fill the chef position later in the year.

I immediately called [snip] at Perimeter Staffing to convey the misunderstanding and as a result was released from employment due to HER CONFUSION over the clients request. I suppose I was seen as unwilling to do the job I was sent for when that was NOT the case at all.

To be frank I found this agency extremely unprofessional. I was hired on Friday to perform a particular task and when appearing for the job on time, in professional attire, ready, willing and able I was released because [snip] does not understand the difference between 'utility' and 'utility cook'. BIG DIFFERENCE! They may want to consider using the proper term of 'Dishwasher'.

Upon arrival I was told that Perimeter Staffing makes more mistakes than they do getting things correct.

A word to the wise...these people don't know what they're doing!

Odd, there wasn't a job description to accompany the job title. If the agency didn't ask for a job description...shame on them. It's like posting 'Wanted: Medical staffer' when looking for hospital orderlies.
askip on 2012-02-02:
I applied for a job/sent resume online, went to this temp. service and filled out all of the paper work, then passed the drug test and was handed the interview location I was to meet with the potential employer and I asked this temp. company if I could get a copy of the policies that I singed off on and they then told me that I was NOT READY for a JOB because I ASKED for such thing as "policies" now I am worried that this was a scam. I did say I gave them all of my information, and they made copies of D.Licenses and SS card.

Does anybody have any idea if they drug test in house or do they send you out to a facility?
