I worked for Jack Kind (41 Red Oaks Mill Road) a few years ago and he was the worst boss ever. Shortly after I screamed at him and told him that I was never going to speak to him again, the company folded due to an excessive number of lawsuits and debt (praise God).

The other day I drove past and saw a sign which said "open for business." What is the deal here? Is this idiot open for business or not? I am currently searching for answers and want nothing to do with him.

If he is open for business again, then I urge you never to apply for a job with him. He will never allow you to quit, and he will never leave you alone.

I can't answer your question for sure, but I went past the other day and it sure didn't look open.

But... how in the world can someone stop you from quitting a job...

and burning in hell,what an absolute
scumbag this person is. Hey Jack, how
did you make it so many years with out
being shot by one of the many people you
screwed?

I worked for Jack and his son Lee years ago as an office assistant. They were the worst people I have ever worked for in my entire life. Now 15 years later as a boss, mother and wife I can not imagine treating anyone the way they treated employees and customers over the years. I think these days, more than ever people should support and do business with people who deserve it.

Unfortunately he is now corrupting the region of Lake George with his so called business. He has also been banned from 5 or 6 hotels and bars in Lake George. Hopefully his reputation will soon enough drive him out of this town too before someone else gets hurt.

I worked for him when he went to Lake George. Right after he "sold" two jobs and it was time for me to go to work for the spring he went out of business. He is currently on his mothers' couch in Long Island, NY :)

Jack Kind put a pool in for me about 15 years ago. He was the worst. Too many things were wrong with my pool to list and when I threaten to withhold the final payment he told me he would send some guys out to hurt me. What a scumbag.
