Does anyone work for this company. I have worked for them for three months now and have not received any pay. I call accounting and they tell me the checks were cut and the owners mail out the checks. I was wondering if anyone else working for this company is having the same problem. I previously worked for them about 3 years ago and did not have any problems, but a lot can happen in 3 years. I have been burned several times now by companies not paying.

Thank you

Thank you

go to your local city office and request a "job lien" file the form then send a copy of the paperwork back to the company that burned you. you will get your money within hours!

I worked for this company in November and haven't been paid. I have reported this company to NARMS. If you want to work and not be reimbursed - this is an EXCELLENT company. If you want to work and NOT BE PAID - THEN DO NOT APPLY TO ANY POSITIONS!!!

I did work for them about 6 weeks ago, the project took 4 weeks to complete. I just inquired about payment today and I was advised by the accounting department that my forms were not filled out properly. My forms were filled out properly and scanned daily to my field manager who told me that everything looked great and I should get payment in 4-6 weeks.

I e-mailed them three times today and requested to speak to a supervisor. If I do not get a favorable response I will file a complaint with the BBB.

Did you respond to an ad on NARMS? I still haven't been paid from last November. I filed a complaint with NARMS.

Hello everyone - I would like to post the companies information if you'd like to file a complaint through the BBB. I believe if we all stand together we can get somewhere and prevent others from not getting paid.

The website is www.bbb.org

Can anyone point me in the right direction for filing a complaint with NARMS? Do I have to be a member in order to do so?

No, I've never been associated with NARM's. I did a google search on Midwest Merchandising which brought me to this posting.
I'm assuming I just create an account - ?

Skip the BBB, contact the labor board. If you were an employee that the company took out taxes on, the labor board will force them to pay you or be sued.I had to do this with a company that refused to pay me. One letter from the labor board and the check was in the mail.

Wow! Midwest Merchandising has been cheating people for a long time it seems, and they are still doing it! I've worked for them as well just recently, and have not been paid. Did any of you get your money??? And if so, how long did it take?

Well I finally got paid in September after threating a lien against them. This only took five months to get resolved. I will not work for them again. I would advise everyone to stay clear of them.

Congrats on getting paid! She prob- takes the money she gets paid on behalf of new workers to keep from getting sued by old workers. The woman is nothing but a thief crook! She belongs in prison! Her karma will catch up to her.... My intention is to do whatever it takes to see her get what she deserves and that is jailtime, and a lot of it... And when she gets there I hope she rots there!

I also did some work for Midwest Merchandising. In the beginning they were very nice and returned all of my e-mails and phone calls. Once I completed my work for them (which cost me a lot of gas and fees for faxing in all those forms), I haven't heard anything. They are not returning my calls or my emails. I feel so stupid for even thinking this was legimate and I wasted money that I really didn't have to spare.

I am so sorry to hear that. It took me five months and a threat of a lien against them to get paid last year. The funny thing is they just contacted me to do more work for them but needless to say I deleted the email.

I worked for Midwest Merchandising Services, 2004 NW South Outer Road,
Blue Springs, MO 64015 I accepted an assignment for TY Beanie Babies. Due to the fact that they needed someone right away and the distance of the stores, I was promised an hourly rate verses by the location. Now that my pay is due, the story has changed to "per store." Needless to say, I am out alot of money because of the price of gas.
They need to be in the Hall of Shame!!!

This forum designed to warn otheers is not working as people are not seeing it prior to working for MWM. What we need to do is after someone has been cheated by teresa Bradford (btw she has been cheating people, for over 12 years n getting away with it!) We need to look up the websites of the manufacturer and distribution companies send them a link to this and other forums. It wont take long for the word to get out and she will be shut down. Do any of you realize she's getting an A rating from the BBB? THIS IS A TRAVISTY! SHE IS A CROOK! WE NEED TO STOP. HER ONCE AND FOR ALL.

IF ANYONE IS STILL OUT THERE WHO WORKED FOR MIDWEST MERCHANDISING SERVICES, WITH TERESA BRADFORD AS THE PRESIDENT, AND YOU HAVE NOT GOTTEN PAID, PLEASE GO TO MIDWEST MERCHANDSING SERVICES ON FACEBOOK. THERE ARE HUNDREDS OUT THERE ON DIFFERENT SITES THAT HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT THIS OUTFIT AND LACK OF PAYMENT FOR SERVICES RENDERED. IT'S TIME FOR THEM TO PAY UP OR BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. FILE A WAGE COMPLAINT WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IN YOUR STATE AND LET THEM HANDLE IT FROM THERE. YOU WILL ONLY GET FRUSTRATED, AS I HAVE, BY GOING BACK AND FORTH ON EMAIL WITH THE LOVELY TERESA AND HER SIDEKICK IN ACCOUNTING, JARED. THEY WILL KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH THIS IF THE STATE AND FED'S ARE NOT ALERTED TO THEIR SCAM.
YOU CAN RESPOND TO ME ON HERE OR GO TO THE FACEBOOK SITE. IF ENOUGH PEOPLE JUMP ON BOARD IT COULD BE A CLASS ACTION SUIT.

Wow, they are still at it! I posted comments on here 42 months ago (under Dawgcr, Litchfield Park) up at the top - and I still haven't been paid. I was out $200.
At that time I filed a complaint with the BBB, nothing was ever done or even communicated to me in regards to the non compensation issues.

MidWest Merchandising is also going by the name of Retail Staffing Solutions. I also got burned by this company. Still owed money from servicing Ty Beanie Babies. I will report to the State as you suggested. Thank you for the information - I only wish I had researched the company before I got involved with them.

I received 2 checks today. I did not expect one for another month so I was pleasantly surprised. I would definately work for them again. The pay and mileage was just as they promised. It is hard because they pay monthly
