The Valiant Theatre & Lounge, located at 6621 St. Claude Ave. 70032, was the worst job experience I have ever encountered. The owner, Paul, found me through my ad here on CL about cleaning houses/apts. He hired me giving me the impression he needed me to work for him cleaning the club and theatre way more than he actually worked me. There were no application nor paperwork of any kind. Just a verbal agreement. He told me he wanted to hire a local resident to help out the community. Well, I had my concerns and decided to document everything I could involving working for this guy. Since the 1st day of working I've went through months of hell hunting Paul down in order to work period. Also, to get paid. I am STILL waiting to get paid for the 1 lonely day I worked on the last week of December. I have made countless text and calls for work only to be ignored. I've written notes and lastly, I left a letter for Paul with a contact number on Jan. 14, 2016 due misplacing my main phone, and he has yet to contact me to pay me. Not once has Paul displayed nor mentioned no longer wanting me to clean for him. He actually offered me more cleaning work to do else where during the time of me searching for him to pay me. I told him I'd clean whatever's available and he never contact me again. Never have I heard of an employee having to tract down the boss to actually work and to do so to get paid for work done is beyond ridiculous. Paul has had me sitting outside the club a few times, waiting for him to open the club so that I may work and this is after numerous times of stating hw would have a key made for me to make things easier. Even after I finally obtained a key, which he sent me to Home Depot to get made, I still had to hunt Paul down just to get any word of the club needing cleaning. He never gave me set days to come. Only when he said so. I feel lied to, cheated and disrespected! This guy owes me and refuses to pay me!! I was a very dedicated employee that was always on time and ready to work. Paul has robbed me of a decent income he claimed to want to help me with being a single mother with a high school senior. As of Jan. 26, 2017, it took an employee to see my threatening message of speaking to a lawyer, to call me and threaten to have me arrested. He then was the person to pay me the money that was owed to me. Not the owner. An employee. Simply pathetic.
