Who in their right mind would give a company money that treats employees and customers with such disregard. I really dont know why TTAI keeps doing business with this company. Pyramid goes against everything Toyota stands for. Pyramid has had over 85 employees in the past 5 years now can someone say "revolving door". Companys like this that hide behind "minority status" like this one and take advantage of communitys and people like this one has should get no breaks. If they could produce a quality product with diligence instead of lies and excuses that would be great but as long as slime balls like chris daniels are in charge things will never change.

I heard that Daniels lost his tractor business to out there in the country cause of the way he treated people and because he lied to people. In my opinion he is a little boy whose mother takes care of him by giving him what he wants. To bad the place treats people bad. But that is the kind of world we live in.

That wouldnt suprise me if that were true. Dont get me wrong there are alot of good guys that work there and bust there ass for next to nothing.
Many of them went to school to learn a trade and got hooked into working for this labor camp are forced to work sometimes 20hr days and for pay a little better than burger king. Then to make things worse if someone trys to better themselves and find a better opportunity Pyramid blackballs them by giving a bad reference to a new potential employer. Now for some of these guys this is their only reference in this trade and Pyramid knows it. And this is all the doing of chris and bj. I really dont see why or what a business gets out of actions such as this. Chris thinks he can hire anyone off the street and turn them into a toolmaker overnight. Well let me tell you chris barely knows which way a drill turns and is a HACK and a FOOL when it comes to toolmaking. Just a little secret on his foolishness, he nearly ran Pyramid into the ground because he was overcharging TTAI for work and if it wasent for bj bailing him out Pyramid would no longer exist. I know for a fact if it wasent for that minority status TTAI,TTWV and Toyota Georgetown would halt all business with Pyramid because they all despise doing business with this company. It just happens to be by a default status that Pyramid gets a break because Toyota has to do business with minority status companys in order to get tax breaks.

Thats interesting. I know a few people who worked there too, and your right, the employees were treated like slaves and belittled. I seen it with my own eyes once when applying for a job there. I decided to pass on the offer when I met a few of the high ups.

Good Ole kevin langdon, what a fool, he is just a pawn in a game he cant win. He should just quit and find a better place to hack up dies. And josh pennington is just a lazy pill popping slob. Both of these guys offer NOTHING to the people trying to learn this trade other than ridicule and empty promises.

It's a wonder anybody works there. I heard they were about to go under and were looking for new management. Maybe you should apply. You might be able to turn the place around.

The best thing that could happen to that place is to have the auction company come and sell everything.

Let me tell you something, Pyramid isnt a real shop,its a SHAM of a business. Their reputation in KY is LACKLUSTER at best. Anyone who knows of Pryamid knows this is a FACT.

I don't know anything about the rest of the shop but Ron is a top notch guy. Also, you mentioned tool makers earlier....are there really any "real" tool makers left? It's a dying breed these days.

Well at my shop all of my guys are tool makers and I wouldnt hire anything less. I have seen what Pyramid can do actually I had them try to do a job for me once and it was a joke. It took them 3 trys and they still couldnt get it right. The print called out a ground finish and they kept milling it then they told me the print was calling out a triple milled finish, I should say chris daniels stated this. When I heard that I knew I was dealing with a bunch of idiots. Triple Milled Finish thats a good one!!! All Pyramid can do is ruin someones potential career, and suck away any and all hope that was once possible with that individual.

As a matter of fact I do and when I take ALL of that Toyota work Pyramid is getting then you can come work for me and make some real money in a real shop. My shop will soon be getting minority status and then that will be the beginning of the end for Pyramid. As I said in an earlier post Toyota hates doing business with Pyramid and is looking forward to the day when they dont have to anymore.

I guess my point, BrJ, is that many people call themselves tool makers and they aren't anything of the sort. They believe that because they can CNC a die section they are automatically a toolmaker. Good toolmakers are few and far between this day and age.

So if people can believe anything you say you have got to have got to be the whiniest bastard ever. You sound like one of those snotty little kids that takes his toys and goes home when you don't get your way.
If you are really in business for yourself which I seriously doubt (knowing someone who has a shop doesnít count) you will never make it. Defaming the competion because you don't measure up will never get you anywhere. You are an inept insignificant little man and that just kills you because in your whole meaningless little life you have never been able to be part of anything bigger than yourself. It takes someone with a real inferiority complex and a total lack of class to anonymously attack other people and companies.

So with the exception of people who couldn't get hired or people who where fired no one has commented making your opinion totally biased.

I feel sure that very little of what you think you know about this company is really the case and if it is why do you feel itís your mission to share it with the world? What do you hope to gain?

It must really suck to be you.
