I wish I could give you an honest answer, but there are severe consequences when you speak out about them.

Why don't you run a check on Cyber Libel and then read the terms of agreement from Topix before you give out that kind of silly advice. Freedom of speech does not give you the freedom to say what you want without any consequences!

To metoo: If something said is true then it isn't libel. Why don't you study up on the definition of libel before you give out that kind of silly advice.

There have been other threads on here talking about them and guess what? NOTHING HAPPENED!

There are issues with any company. No more issues there than any other construction company. Disgruntled employees get on here all the time and slander their employer. They aren't perfect but they have been in business for years and they wouldn't still be in business if they couldn't run one. You will have a more stable job there compared to less stable construction companies, especially with the instability of the construction industry.

It was months ago, and why would anything happen if it were true? There is nothing to worry about as long as it is true. If someone is giving an opinion, there is nothing anyone can do since it is just an opinion. I will state my opinion any time I want. Some have the opinion that it is a good place to work and other's don't. Some hate their boss and others get along well. This isn't libel or slander. If you slandered them and got fired then they can do that but they can't do a thing about topix other than get a thread deleted if they want.

I agree with you here. They still have an application as it is required, especially when you have a work comp claim with an employee. The first thing the the insurance wants to see is their application (to see if they lied about their history) when the employee wants to sue. I have hired people that came from there and I have worked with the company before. Former employees have said that they are all about work and to leave any drama or personal problems at home. I like that because I hate hiring people with a lot of personal drama and the misery they bring to work with them everyday. I'm also all work and don't want to deal with everybodies issues.

I go to church with one of the people that own j s construction, what I know is that he is outspoken and a little rude to others in the church but so are all with money in this town. I would not work for someone like js construction however the economy is bad so who knows.

Well I have heard that they will lie about what their intentions are. Like the Cookeville Mall They told the shops that were still in business at the Mall that they was going to make it better, but all they did was run everyone out of business and shut the Mall down. Except for JC Penny's.

I believe you may have thought I was an ex employee, that is not the case.

You may have thought I was silenced because of fear of libel, that is not the case.

You are correct, they are a construction company, and they make money doing so and have for years, but that is not the only business they are in.

As RevClark said there are issues with their leasing company, known also as XI Investments.

While they build relationships with corporations and institutions like churches, the large ones they make money off of, they are not running with the best reputation for their treatment of business tenants.

You may get some answers if you ask the right questions, but it will not be on this forum. I know from personal experience that things written or said, even when true, do have consequences, and they are heavily dished out from the bottomless pockets of the owners.

On a side note regarding the church they attend, if you do just a little research online you will see he was even removed from the church for disrespect to the Elders (though quite a while later he was re-accepted)

Just remember, looks and images and money, and sometimes even a prayer and a smile can be deceiving.

If you believe this say something negative about the company and/or the owner(s) and let it get back to them. If you come out untouched you will be blessed.

They didn't run anyone out of business. They all moved elsewhere. That is how all the crazy rumors get started. Plus things change and money and partners are an issue. It is their building to do as they want and change plans as they want. Penney's has a very long lease and others didn't. when the lease was up, it wasn't renewed. That is a business person's perogative. They don't answer to you. also, you are no reverend to spread rumors and lies. According to you, you know no facts, just spread around what you "heard"! BAD BOY!
