Tip 26: Warning: Lack of Consistency in Pay Day

Be aware there are companies such as Psychic Sweatshop A, who we refer to as “Sweat-shopa.” They do not have consistency in payroll days.

Lack of continuity is a problem for any worker in any industry.  Payroll dates need to be set in stone.  Surely if there are holidays that land on those payroll dates, then that needs to be addressed with a solid policy in place.  Though Psychics work as independent contractors, if a company wants to be taken serious, they need to act serious.  If a company wants to be respected, they need to be respectful.

Sweat-shopa’s pay date fluctuates every month.  Worse, it has only 1 (one) payroll date – once a month!  That right there is hard enough as-is.  However, to have a lack of consistency makes this a living hell or better yet, a true sweat shop.  Sometimes it is done on the 4th, 5th, 6th, or 9th of the month.  Other times it’s will be on the 7th or 8th of the month.  Worse, they have changed their payroll date at the last minute.  Now considering most people’s rent/mortgage payments are due on the 1st of the month, it is their disadvantage to not have that payout date that most civilians would need.

Yet to have a pay date change constantly is a problem for any worker to make payments on time.  Changing a pay date a few days prior to its’ arrival is insulting and stressful.  It’s bad enough Sweatshopa charges their Psychics a $20 fee to be paid out via PayPal.  After all PayPal doesn’t charge them to do mass payments.  Sure, it would be understandable if it were a wire transfer.  However, PayPal fees are not anywhere near ACH fees and simply not right.

Now considering Sweatshopa has had issues with Uncharged Fees, Rating Issues, Free 3 minute hogs, Payroll problems, immediate refund for any reason, and more, you may want to re-think if you want to work at such a dysfunctional company.
