All I am writing this to get this off of my chest. I want to know if anyone has had a problem like this.
I work for a large pharmicutical company and after 7 monts of working there I was brought on as a full timer from a contractor. The contracting company always paid when promised and I never had any issues with them.
On friday of last week i was expecting my first paycheck from the company. When I got home there was no paycheck in the mailbox. I figured that since my direct deposit will take a couple of weeks i figured i would get it on saturday. Well after waiting for the mailman to come on saturday I still did not have a paycheck. Again I figured worse case I would get the check on Monday as the mail is not always the fastest. On monday i decided to call my payroll dept to verify that the check was mailed. They told me that there was a problem and my check was not mailed. When I asked what the problem was they told me it was a glitch on how they had my employment status in the computer and they would fix it and cut me a check next thursday. When I asked even though there was an issue I still should have been paid on time anyway they gave me the runaround. I asked if they can overnight the check to me since I have bills to pay, mainly rent. They said that there was nothing that they can do about it and i would have to wait another week. So I went to my boss to he if he can make some headway and after a few phone calls he got the same answer and there going to fedex a check to me thursday for friday delivery. He also told me that this problem was with 140 people not just me.
I ask what kind of company would not want to help me out in a situation like this. I should not have to wait another week for money that is owed to me and they should of happily fedex'd a check to me that day. Well tomorrow I will call them again and make sure I get a tracking number to make sure i get the check once and for all.
Has anyone here has a situation like this and was it handled the same way? I Appreciate everyone listening to me and let me get this off of my chest. I will let everyone know how it turned out.
