A. Sam should pull out of NY all together, let the state support Dunkirk. Check the county records and see how much Sams pay in property tax.

First off, let separate facts from fictions. Yes, it is a hard place to work for. We have always paid the employees, always. There are no bugs(where did that come from???) and if someone has passed, we would provide a day off. It is okay to critized, I am enjoying this, but get the facts right. Oh..no slave labor...the employees are paid very, very well. Sorry about the confusion, as I have said before this is very enjoyable reading.
And if there are any spelling errors or sentences problems. I am hearing impaired, and not always write correctly. Enjoy....

I worked for Chuck Sam at one point. No offense but its insanely frustrating to work for a deaf boss. Just for practical reasons. Especially since their office uses virtually no current technology. Everything is all fax, their computers aren't networked, they don't have standard order forms... I could go on. Chuck is a nice guy - I mean he tries to be a nice guy, but its a tough place to work. Distraction factory.

Getting personal is not the way to discuss anything. Fact, for generations the Sam family has provided jobs in WNY. For generations the Sam family has given more than they've taken. Fact farm work is hard, fact if you go to work there and you don't like it, quit. To criticize a person because you don't like them, well! Chuck is hard to work for. Yes! is he honest, caring and giving? Yes probably more than most.

I can't say what it's like to work for them, but I can say what it's like to be interviewed. I applied for a professional position in the office, as advertised on Craigslist (which should have been a tip-off right there)- I have over 25 years experience in the type of work advertised. Was called to come in for an interview. Was told during the interview that the description of the position advertised was just a list of possible work responsibilities to "see who responded"- they could not actually tell me what any of the duties of the position would be, whether it would be part or full-time, or anything definite whatsoever. Despite this I went back for a second interview with the GM, on a Saturday. Was told at the end of the interview he'd "need a few days". Never heard another word from the company. But two weeks later I saw an ad in the local newspaper advertising a much lower-level position in the same small department- apparently they may at least have finally figured out what work they wanted done.

Horrible place to work. The people there are unorganized and flippant. They have been in trouble in the past for hiring illegal immigrants, lying about it and trying to cover it up. Chuck Sam is in a tie with Helen Sam as worse boss ever. Lets face it..they are running a scam...check the books and see where the money comes from...loans..loans..and more loans. Not a place you would want to start your carear. The place is dirty and bug infested...if you can tolerate the illegal immigrants..I hope you can tolerate...the less intelligent that work there.

Your interview went basically the same as mine. I was hired to be part-time office staff by Helen. Then she sent me to Chuck's office. I worked over 60 hours a week from then on. At first I thought it was temporary as I was getting trained and they were shuffling people around, then Chuck was like - where do you go when you leave? I was getting bitched at for only putting in 12 hours a day! Now I have this damn job on my permanent record that people ask about that I have no good answer to give.

I would have to disagree along with many many others who have worked for them in the past. In my own opinion, they are terrible people to work for. Maybe they are trying to satisfy you in some areas to keep you with them. They have always had a real hard time keeping employees. Good Luck!!

I was sent there for an interview once from a temp agency, took the tests, got hired...wanted me to start the next day. On the day I went there to start, I heard the deaf brother swearing at an employee in the hallway, telling her he was not born yesterday, he is not stupid, screaming things that were not what I would expect in an office environment. Employer Brutality would be describing it politely. As I was waiting to enter the sisters office for the beginning of my first day, one of the current employees asked me if I was really sure I wanted to take this job. I thought for just a brief moment, and looked at her and said, "You know what, your right, I don't need this kind of abuse. I don't think I will be staying." I walked out, and a day or two later while at the unemployment office, I voiced my opinion to the department of labor as to the events that I witnessed there. I was told that they receive complaints weekly about the employers abusing their staff verbally. She even knew exactly which employer it was....and stated that he relies on his disability to blow off the complaints of his swearing and yelling at his staff members.

Some things never change...This treatment has been going on for many years. There have been charges and court cases many times. No one should be abused or treated the way they treat their employees.
