    I worked at Computer Merchant as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The onboarding process is organized

    Cons

    TCML aka The Computer Merchant LTD subbed me out to another consulting group and then tried to stiff me an 2 weeks + 1 day of pay, and parking fees. I negotiated a fair rate and it included cost of parking in the client's garage. In the end, TCML tried to refuse to pay me my last 2 weeks of salary and then stopped paying for my parking after the first week. What I found was that they did not add the parking in my clause and backtracked on what they said.

    I had to get the Texas Workforce Comission involved and the state of Texas FORCED them to pay me my missing wages. After a 2nd audit review, the state also forced them to pay a 2nd time because they found out that payroll had decided to deduct another day of pay over time without justification.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your recruiters and account managers to be honest and transparent.
