I was browsing around for a new job, and I stumbled upon a job listing that was a little tricky to read.
The company listed an office in Texas, and it sounded like a good fit.
I called the number listed, but the company’s phone number wasn’t working, and the call was interrupted before I could get through to a person who could help.
My initial reaction when I heard this was that this wasn’t a good deal for me.
My company, a small tech company in Texas called Digital Asset Technologies, has a fairly high attrition rate.
And I’d been laid off for a while.
So I contacted them to get an estimate.
“I’m not sure if I can make it work,” they said, as they tried to get me to sign up for a monthly subscription plan.
The next day, I got an email from the company.
I had to make a decision, and then I got a call from the HR rep.
She said that the company was about to make changes to the terms of service, and that they needed to be notified by the next day.
I started digging, and soon realized that the terms listed in the company website didn’t actually apply to me.
Instead, they said that I was going to be responsible for my own expenses, and would have to pay the company $20 per month to do that.
In other words, my work would be out of my own pocket.
I was devastated.
I contacted my employer to get a refund, and they gave me a different answer.
The HR rep said that they would refund me $50 per month, and offered to send me a check for $10.
That was a huge relief, because I didn’t know that $20 was a lot of money for me to pay to a company that was threatening to leave me behind.
Since I’d just left my company, the next step was to call the company back and ask them to take me off their plans.
But that was difficult, because they were the only company in the state that did.
What was my next step?
I called another company, and this one had similar problems.
That’s when things got really complicated.
When I called them, I was told that they didn’t have a company.
The caller said that Digital Asset Technology was an “underperforming company” and asked me to write a check.
At this point, I had a lot to think about.
The only way to pay them off was to work with them to work out a deal.
And there was one problem.
Digital Asset did not offer any financial assistance.
They said that their only way of paying for their own expenses was to hire someone to do it.
I started looking around for help.
I searched the internet for jobs with similar situations, and all I could find were people trying to work around the system.
One person suggested that I call a lawyer, but I couldn’t find a job lawyer.
I ended up reaching out to a business law professor who told me that he had heard of this situation and had been talking to a couple of HR reps about it.
I called up the HR department and explained what I was facing, and got a reply from an HR rep that said that that was the company that I had called and that I should contact them immediately.
Then I started to worry about how long it would take me to get my job back.
I went to the office that Digital Assets was based in, and a representative explained to me that there would be a $15 refund, which was a good amount for me, but it was still a little bit too much.
The representative said that there was a $20 fee that had to be paid to get the job back, and added that they were “looking into it.”
So, I asked the HR reps how much money they would be willing to refund me, and when they told me I would have the option to choose between paying the full $15 or a $10 refund.
They told me to “ask nicely.”
So I went into the HR office, and told the representative that I’d like to ask for a refund for $20.
Instead, she said that because the company is an “out of business” company, they could not accept any payments from me.
I told her that I didn’ want to pay a $25 fee for a $30 job, but she said she couldn’t accept it.
She told me it was okay if I didn”t have the money to pay it, and she said I could call the HR team to pick up the phone and have the company refund me.
So I asked for a check and I got the same response: $20 for $25.
Now, I thought I was being treated fairly by Digital Asset, and so I decided to file a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board.
