Powergetics untrustworthy, dishonorable, and will jerk you around in a second San Francisco, California
22nd of Dec, 2011 by User354351
This is a copy of my report to the BBB. I was hired as a contractor via a phone interview, and was told that since they were in such of a "bind", that I needed to begin employment onsite on Dec. 19, 2011. The first day there, I was told that due to some kind of CA law or something that they could not hire me as a contractor (but I am not sure of their credibility about that), but that they would take me as a W2 direct employee for a 10% cut in my hourly fee, which was agreed upon. Late the next afternoon, about 15 hours into employment, I was told that my contract was terminated. And this was before they even provided me the computing and network resources that were absolutely necessary for me to do the job that they hired me for. To the best of my knowledge, this was due to no fault of my own, and they would not even give me a satisfactory explanation -- "we are going a different direction" is all they would say. They compensated me for two weeks, but that just barely covered my expenses incurred up to that point. It did not cover the 2.5 weeks of my time that I had devoted to all of the logistics of getting to San Francisco (from Iowa), the potential employers that I turned down, thinking that I already had an assignment, the fact that after moving out of my apartment, I really have nowhere to go now -- and all of the associated expenses which have not yet occurred. In my opinion, this is not a "workplace dispute". This questions their integrity as a company as a whole. You just don't do that to people. And if they can mistreat an employee, in good faith, as such, I can only imagine how they will treat their future customers.
