This man has to be the biggest piece of filth in the world

He fired a man that has never missed a days work..has kids

He fired him for leaving a reusable balloon out al night..at one of his mailer sales. It didn't hurt the balloon in any way!

The man had worked a 12 hour day on top of a 50 hour week. He simply was tired and forgot.

Grindstaff fired him on the spot, no write up or anything...how dare he leave Grindstaffs balloon out ..the idiot stomped around mad for half a day.

How can anyone buy a car from this POS?

No doubt he's a POS. Even more so than most loser salespeople who make a buck off others. Maybe he'll get some painful long illness that causes great suffering. Karma can be a bitch. It comes,,,,,,,,,,eventually..... .

Grindstaff is the worst human being I have ever met in my 30 years in the work force

Any one that sits up on the sale tower and smokes ciggs in 2012 is a POS

I know no other owner that would act that way!

He is BREAKING the law by smoking in a retail store!!

But it goes way beyond smoking ..he treats his staff like DOGS!! I cant see how he doesn't run out of people willing to worth for him.

He is old enough to be his wife's Grand Dad that right there alone is SICK!!

He eye lids are stretched from plastic surgery on his face..he runs around screaming and smoking in his yellow shorts and his yellow Puma shoes..LOL

This man has the be the worst ownr in the whole country hands down

I don't see how anyone would spend money at his dirty dealerships!!

His KIA dealership in JC is crap. they hardly will talk to you and have the crappiest sales tactics I've ever seen! they wont give you a car price over the phone! to the tune that I explained to the salesman I just needed a price and I didnt have time to come down there and sit.. it was plain and simple, just give me the price. He told me it was "against their policy" and hung up on me!!! Thier sales people are not even local! the sales manager was from New Orleans and the sales guy was from Atlanta. WTH! Locals not good enough to hire or they wont work for Grind SHAFT?

they wont even give you a price on your trade in until you "pick a car" What?? My car is worth X regardless of what I pick out! He needs to turn the dealerships back over to his daughters! They ran it well, service was good and his cheesy ass was out.

He is trash with money is all. I agree he will get what is coming to him. God will make you pay in many ways.

guess dude shoulda got the balloon..

In the end it's not Grindstaff's fault. If part of his job was to bring in the baloon, then he failed at that part of the job regaurdless of how long his day was.. car salesmen know their going to work those hours... sure it's a petty reason to get fired.. but how about people taking RESPONSIBILITY for their actions instead of always blaming someone or something else.

I bet next time he brings in the balloon.

He made his money laundering cash for very important people in the 70's. I hear it still goes on. Google car dealers and mob money washing - its a favorite way to unload a bunch of cash.

Not being controversial with you Rdiva, or defending ole' Grindshaft, but I think that if your car was a brand new model it will be an issue directly with Ford Manufacturing. I agree that the customer service could have been better, but check you warranty first. Grindstaff may actually not be following the terms of the warranty as an authorized dealer, if not it will be through Ford.

The best way to handle this problem/matter is to get in touch with the customer relations department of the various dealerships he represents and file a formanl complaint against Grindstaff. This should trigger an investigation into the way he runs his dealership. This will get Grindstaff's attention, trust me!
