Re: “Mississippi Studios

Re: to pdxsurfer. Your right the staff is excellent. But the sad truth is that place hasn't treated it's employees like it should. It's not like I want to not like that place. I loved working there, the only problem is how the owners dicked the employees around. If you wanna pretend the employees at Jims dad's restaurant Mississippi station weren't given a 2hr notice then you can go ahead and live in fantasy land.
Truth is that place would be rad, and still is from a leamen's perspective (yours).
Jim decides to expand Mississippi studios in Mississippi station, cool. Here's where things get retarded, try to stay with me here. The "failing" business you spoke of at Mississippi station was anything BUT failing. That was a thriving popular restaurant. Let's forget about the fact that the business was a success and not in dire need to close it's doors. It's not like Jim and his dad decided the switch over till the last second when they told the employees at station they were fucked. No they had plenty of time to inform the employees. Ok, maybe that should have fell on Jim's dad, but then he is in California while Jim is next door everyday.
To all Mississippi studios employees your rad, much respect to you. But you should get a job that won't leave you hanging like they have with Adam, Kevin or any of the station employees.
My point is, don't believe the hype. That place is built on the lies perpetrated to their employees and spread to their community. I have no doubt it will sink if ran with the same callous trend.
If you don't care about good business ethics or that it's totally cool for employers to bs their employees blowing smoke up their asses then by all means go ahead. I'm sticking to my principles and not paying tribute to greedy selfish businesses that don't care about the lives they destroy.
I tried to love that place, but ever since I found all the newer info about poor Adam getting fucked off yet again after being promised more bullshit lies or even poor dumb young Kevin. He was a sweet kid even though he was extremely inexperienced and could be a lil bit of a prick sometimes, he still didn't deserve to be fucked off like he was, especially after all the time he put in that place. I couldn't have done that to even my worst enemy.
When I say shame on you Mississippi studios I suppose I truly mean shame on you Jim. Jim maybe a "cool guy", good musician, or even a good friend. But I have no doubt the lame chicken shit business practices are all on him. I couldn't imagine Alicia or any of the staff coming up with being shitty to it's own people, just Jim. I'm appalled at everything up to this point and in my opinion people who treat others as expendable commodities don't deserve to run a business, especially one where all the customers are lapping up your bs and stroking your ego telling you how great your place is. In spite of your disgraceful interactions with your community. We're all accountable, even the fuckers signing the checks. That's what needs to be fixed.

Re: “Mississippi Studios

Dearest Mississippi Studios, I Heard about the expansion next door, that's pretty cool, except for the 2hr notice to all the employees that they were all out of work, or how Kevin was just let go after he helped build the whole back end of the building and put alott of time in. I'd really love to love you Mississippi studios but that shit is pretty lame and the excuse that there isnt money doesn't mean you can wait till theres only 2hrs left to tell someone their gonna be out of work. For all I know poor Johnny got fired too.... the whole time I was there I was made to think there wasn't money and felt bad for them all the while its the opposite and I'm the poor one feeling bad for someone that's well off, especially now that you've got more partners. Or how poorly Adam was treated not to mention being fired twice and he's an excellent worker. People like that pour their hearts into places like Mississippi studios, that's the kind of people you want working for you and they don't deserve to be dicked around, only to be tossed aside with no notice or respect. Like I said I'd love to love you Mississippi studios, but the manner if which your businesses practices are conducted are completly unethical and cold. I will not support a business of any kind that doesn't support its community or it's employees.
