I have been trying for weeks to get Comcast Internet installed in my soon-to-be new jewelry store in Toms River, New Jersey.
The first time I called I was told that all we needed to do was plug our router into the existing cable connection and they would turn us up.
Well, that did not work so they scheduled a service call for a few days later, We waited all day for the installers to arrive. Near the end of the day we called to complain that no one showed up. However, we were informed that the installers said that they had come by but that no one was at our place. This is the lie they told their bosses so they could goof off for a few hours at some bar while they were collecting their exorbitant pay for work not done.
Now on the second service call a few union men showed up but told us that they could not do the installation because they did not have a boom. Without it, they could not connect us.
We scheduled another installation. On the third visit the installers said the exact same thing: no boom. We scheduled for a new install again.
On the fourth visit (today) we were told by the installer that he was a residential installer and that he couldn't help us because we were a business. We pleaded with him to connect us anyway because this was the fourth time we drove one hour each way from Bayonne to Toms River to wait just for a cable installation.
He said he couldn't help us because he didn't bring a ladder. We told him we had a ladder that we used to get on the roof. But he said our ladder was not a union ladder and that if he fell off a non-union ladder he would not get compensated for any injury sustained.
That was the final straw. We cancelled the service - how can we do business with a company that employs such worthless idiots?
Would you believe, a few days earlier we received our first monthly bill from Comcast for Cable Internet Service even though we never had a successful installation. This is what you get when companies are forced to use union thugs as employees.
I should mention that this technique of making sure the job isn't done in one visit is employed by every union in America so that three times as many employees are needed to get the job done, read my article Verizon Union - Fraudsters and Extortionists.
By the way, my phonecard company has more than half a million customers using our service every day and we do not employ a single union worker and we never will. I would rather pay an illegal immigrant twice the union wage than hire a union worker who in reality costs three times as much to do the same job. And best of all, I don't have to buy a union ladder, whatever that is, or employ 9 union morons to set it up.
