Manheim - Bad employment experieince

Manheim (Auctions),Management in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, do not enforce company policy on code of conduct policy (use of vulgar language around other employees). I worked there for several years(now I don't), and the whole time I worked there other workers would violate the code of conduct policy and even though the supervisor would have a meeting in the mornings every now and them to inform (remind), employees of the policy, there were no teeth in enforcing the rules, there was nothing done and when the offended employee files complaints with corporate in Atlanta, management would create a hostile work environment for the aggrieved employee by not enforcing the policy. Also, not providing the tools to be able to perform a job more efficient and better, was always a problem. Even after filing complaints, there was nothing ever done, management developed a hostile attitude toward the employee, thus creating a hostile working environment. Id the employee was doing supervisory work, the position would be removed and the employee would be demoted (sort of speak), for complaining and not brown nosing. They can't keep good, hard working , loyal employees because of what I have stated in this review. OH, well, I'm drawing unemployment from them, sooooo everything is good. Also, there is no need to go out of your way to go above and beyond your duties, cause there is no appreciation shown by the management and CEO, Lot Operations Manager or Lot Supervisor. The only thing they care about is the "Bottom Line". They don't care about the rules, policy, and apparently Cox Automotive in Atlanta don't care either, even though they have posters hanging in the hall ways that says, "If you see something, say something", loll what a joke.....They give a 25 cent raise each year, lolllllll Sarcastic

Dollar General Corporation - A rip off
Folks I went to the Dollar general store in Eastabuchie, Mississippi, I heard they sold fresh vegetables. So I wanted a cabbage, I got one and it was $2.50 for one small head of cabbage, can you believe that? All the manager said was, "yeah, that's bad". So here is the proof, see receipt and photo of cabbage. Don't go there to buy any so called fresh vegetables, fruit, etc It is a big ripoff to say the least.

Grifols Plasma - Rude managment and staff

Grifols Plasma - Rude managment and staff
On May 13, 2019 I donated some plasma at Grifols Plasma Center at 1000 Broadway Drive, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and everything went ok. When I got home I checked my account and they did not put the right amount of money on my payment card. I called them right away and I spoke to someone named "Connie", and she said she needed my name so I gave her my name, she said "They did not have a file with that name", so she asked me again for my name (I have had the same name for 60 years), so she said again "I don't have a folder with that name", so she asked me for my donor number, I gave it to her and she found the file with my name on it, it hadn't been but an hour since I was there and donated, I mean, da. I told her I have been called Ray for 60 years I told her who ever processed my donation did not put the right amount of money on my card, they put $20.00 but the amount was owed to me was to be $100.00. She developed an attitude about it and hung up on me and I called back and spoke with the manager (supposedly) (Jennifer)?, she was rude to say the least she acted like it made her angry that I would call and ask about my money they owed me, she said "They corrected it", well, that is good, but she told me that "I would have to speak to a manager before I returned to donate, and the fact to the matter is I was already speaking to a manager, her. They accused me of being rude, but they were rude and I told them so and they need to change their attitudes if they want to keep good donors there. Donating Plasma helps others who need it like bulimics, and other people who have certain types of blood diseases. They gave me a "VIP" card last week, and I am suppose to get $100.00 for the first 4 times, I was on my third donation when the little verbal kerfuffle took place on the phone. They shouldn't get angry with the donor for calling them on their mistake when they owe a donor money for donating, it's not the donors fault. I called the corporate Office in LOs Angeles, CA, filed a phone complaint with a person there named Pam. She is suppose, to give to whoever is in charge, the complaint and hopefully they can straighten those people out who has the bad attitudes cause that is bad for business. I am going to think very hard about going back there and donating plasma there again, it is not worth the hassle, especially the attitudes from management and the nurse(intake).

The Mississippi Bar - FIled a complaint about an attorney who is on staff at Mississippi Center for Legal Services Corporation

Update by user May 08, 2019

I spoke with an attorney there at the MS Bar, whose last name is Wabble, and he accused me of cursing him (which I don't use vulgarity), but I did use the word "Incompetent", and the last time I checked, that word is not a curse word.

Original review posted by user May 08, 2019
A complaint filed about an attorney who is on staff at Mississippi Center for Legal Services in Jackson, Mississippi , and the MS Bar has not done it's job and investigated my complaint in a fair, unbiased way. Received a copy of a letter they allegedly sent to the attorney, but there has been no confirmation cause there have been emails sent for that, but no replies. The purpose of filing a complaint with the MS Bar is to hold to account lawyers their ethics/professional behavior and the way they talk/treat potential clients who rely on that service that is paid for by the American tax payer and registered voters through grants that are provided by Federal grant money, (paid by the American Tax Payers). But I am sure they all know each other so filing a complaint with the MS Bar investigating one of their own is probably like getting the police to investigate one of their own, it is futile to say the least, a waste of time. That is sad when lawyers can treat clients with contempt, because the client knows the law and calls the lawyer on his/her behavior, and the lawyer closes the file without even getting the facts of the case. The Mississippi Bar is suppose to be a agency that can hold attorneys accountable for their actions ethically, professionally, etc. Apparently that is not true in Mississippi.

You really think an association made up of lawyers and designed to hold lawyers accountable for inappropriate conduct in the legal realm is going to hold another of their lawyer buddies accountable for anything...you got to be out of your mind...

Mississippi Center for Legal Services - Bad experience with MCFLS, bad lawyer and secretary

The legal secretary Iola Gleece, ( in Jackson, Mississippi), is rude, she says " we don't receive mail that is certified", and the attorney Richard Hitt in Jackson office is rude, talks over you, and closes your case file when a client files a complaint against him with the Mississippi Bar. Doesn't allow a person to get a word in edgewise, and if you try to, he'll close your file before even acting on the case, and they will conspire against the client. Also, filed a complaint with the Legal Services Corporation in Washington DC, via Certified mail, as well as the executive director, and board of directors. Also, a Congressional enquiry has been initiated ( since Congress appropiates funding for the Legal Services Corporation and Mississippi center for legal services). Our taxes pay for the grants that are handed out to the states that have legal services for those in need of legal help. Those agencies need to employ staff that is more respectful, and considerate of potential clients, there needs to be change in Mississippi Center for legal services. There is an ongoing investigation into the operations, procedures and the general employment practices of that agency. A lawyer there should not close a clients file simply because the client filed grevences against the attorney. The complaints would not be filed if the assigned attorney would act professionally and with integrety. They will send you a letter full of lies accusing the client of being rude, when in reality, it was them trying to save face, what a shame there are people who work in the occupation as a lawyer with questionable ethics and character, so sad our taxes ( in the form of grants), are appropiated for government agencies like that. I want my taxes back.

Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination issue

Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination issue
Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination issue
Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination issue
Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination issue
Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce will have a cause of action filed against the ones who are responsible for discriminating against an older person seeking employment in November of last year. I will also be filing a cause of action in federal court against Richard Benton and Andy Gibson, if a resolution cannot be worked out. As we all know, MDAC is funded by Mississippi tax payers like myself, and by grant funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (Federal Grants),taxes (my money as well), and it is against the law to discriminate in hiring practices since the 1967 age discrimination act came into being. Discriminating in the hiring process also prohibited the applicant from participating in the 4 week long training program, in Atlanta, Georgia, that is required when hired for the position of meat inspector trainee in forest county, thus was discriminated against for that as well. Anyway, people up there in Jackson with smirks on their face, and laughing about it, and just don't care, well, let me tell you, there are consequences to egregious acts of discrimination and those responsible will be held accountable from the top all the way down. I have the resources to make that happen and the process has begun. I think you are a good governor, I voted for you, but maybe you are oblivious to the situation, I don't know, but something needs to be done. The EEOC charge number is, 423-201*-00299 , and the EEOC has evidence to prove the allegation in the form of two letters from Richard Benton, and an email from his secretary, MS Robin Ingram. The EEOC has begun the process and it will be filing a cause of action in federal court if something cannot be worked out in the course of the process. I wanted to upload a screenshot of the evidence, but there is no where in this blog to upload it, sorry. But, the fact of the matter is, it happened and now is the time for those who tried to sweep it under the rug, who (by the lack of actions), said oh, well, nothing will be done, cause the applicant was nothing more than a country hick, or something to that affect, to own up to what has been done. The applicant should be paid and, or offered another position to settle it once and for all. Of course, we all know that the social media outlets will be glad to get all of this on their websites, on their blogs, like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, google, and other social media platforms. Mr Governor sir, I hope you can use your influence to communicate with those at the MDAC, and voice your opinion about the matter and maybe give them some good advice on making it right, which would be the right course of action as a leader in this government in the Great State of Mississippi. If you have any issues you may want to call MR William Jones Jr, at 601-948-****, he is the Federal Investigator who has the case, maybe ya'll can work something out, and he can let the victim of the discrimination know of what is going on , (keep him up to date). When you call him make sure you give him the charge # listed 423-201*-00299. I don't hold you personally responsible sir, but you are the Governor, so I implore you to maybe contact someone in that agency who you can communicate with and give them some good advice on making things right, which would be a good thing since you are the head of the government here in the Great State of Mississippi, and in consideration of you being a public employee as well, as I do contribute to your salary in the form of my taxes that I pay every year, every two weeks, every month, etc. We the people are tired of those who are suppose to represent us, fail to do so with heir own agendas.

Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination November 5, 2018

Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce - Age discrimination November 5, 2018
Update by user Dec 29, 2018

The interview was November 5, 2018, second letter was received on November 19, 2018.

Original review posted by user Dec 29, 2018
There was a job interview in Jackson, Mississippi for a meat Inspector Trainee Position in Forrest County, Mississippi. The person ( an older citizen, 60 years old), went to the interview( traveled 85 miles), got there early, went into interview, was interviewed by three people, one female, two males. OAt the onset of the interview, it was more like a criminal interrogation than a job interview. The female interviewer ask the interviewee, " why are you wanting to change career at this stage in your life"? Well, right off the bat, that raised a red flag. Also, Mr Richard Benton, one of the interviewers, ask him, " can you do the physical/ mental tasks associated with the duties of of meat Inspector Trainee? He said yes. He said the Trainee would have to go to Atlanta for a four week training school, paid for by The United States Department of Agriculture,( US and Mississippi tax payers), interviewee had no issues with that. Then the interview was over. A few days later, he got a letter stating " the agency could not offer him a position", without explanation, ( how rude). The interviewee sent an email to request a letter specific, so he got a letter signed by Richard Benton stating that the reason the applicant wasn't chosen was not because of they chose a younger individual that was more qualified, and that "they focused more on the essential functions of the position as compared to the ability of each applicant to perform those functions". Now the training that suppose to be for four weeks is suppose to train the "Trainee" for the " essential functions of the position", also, after the four week training, there is " on the job training". So the qualifications for the position was a associate degree which the interviewee had, and they did hire a younger person, and their reason for not hiring the senior citizen was not a good reason, thus they did discriminate against him. Not only did they discriminate in job hiring, but also in a federal funded tax supported training program. The Mississippi State Personnel Board discriminated in it's hiring practices against a 60 year old tax payer, registered voter, and think they can get by with it without consequences, well, we'll see about that.

Resolved: Can't get Ssocial security administration to send me record of my earned Work credits

Update by user Feb 02, 2021

Company fixed the issue and I have been provided with product or service ordered. I got statement.

Original review posted by user Jun 29, 2018
I have called several times since fall of 2017, to get SS to send me a copy of my earned work credits so far on my work record, to no avail. I have called, called and called and always speak with a guy named Bret, (suppose to be supervisor), (laurel, Mississippi Office), and other people who answer the phone(they don't give their names). The last letters I got was two letters about two weeks ago, that stated the same thing and had nothing to do with earned work credits. What do I have to do to get Social Security to send me copies of the earned work credits record thus far of my work record? I pay taxes and contribute to their salaries there, they work for me, I don't work for them? I have tried to be nice and polite, to no avail? What seems to be the problem? Each time I have spoke to them in the past, they tell me "they will mail me a copy of my work credits", but they always mail me something that has nothing to do with earned work credits, why is that?

really don't care if you don't like the confederate flag or not. People who are proud of his/her/their southern American heritage, don't care if yankees, coons, Frenchmen from Louisiana, of creoles or blacks, etc., don't like the confederate flag.

I do and that is my right to post this and to voice my opinion, it's called the first amendment to the Constitution. IT is also a part (whether you like it or not), of Southern American History.
