They had very high profile clients. Which is the good part. I worked through them with one of the most powerful people in advertising worldwide. However they made my life miserable. While they pay on a weekly basis through a series of circumstances I wasn’t paid for the first three weeks. Then I got paid two weeks later. For some reason something always “just happened” to my check. I really got the excuse “it must be lost in the mail.” I remember once I called to tell them I was coming to pick up the check and got there sooner than they expected only to catch them leaving the building. They wanted me to come back the next week (it was the start of a three day weekend). After weeks of this it finally came down to the company where I was working sent a car for my check. They didn’t want to see me upset every payday when I had to yell (yes, it got to that stage) at my agency to pay me. I wish that was the end of the trouble but even after they were called (weekly) to confirm that the check was there and the car would be coming and told what time it would be there, they wouldn’t have the check for him. So, they (kindly?) sent a messenger with the check the next day – this happened more than once. After that assignment ended (after 8 months) I was very happy not to work for them ever again.
