The Return Of "Frankendine"
The ghastly E.P. Dine temp agency (a.k.a. "Frankendine") is at it again. I knew it was only a matter of time before "Frankendine" would awaken and once again terrorize and try to rip off young attorneys:
"A few of us were employed at EP DINE for a job with the NYC Legal Dept. We were told it would be 40 hours per week with no weekends.
The supervisor at NYC Legal insisted that we work on weekends - she was aware that all of us had put in 40 hours. Usually this isn't a problem - you do whatever the boss says and get paid. All of us worked really hard. We were all hired by Shawn Treadwell. We all thought he was a nice guy, but he wound up firing those of us that demanded our pay.
EP DINE refused to pay anything over the 40 hours - between all of us that was over 100 hours.
I am astounded that we were dropped for asking for our pay.
NYC Legal conditions were also awful; there were giant roaches walking near the kitchen - signs posted by people about it - just gross."
