I worked for Richard for less than a week. He let me go after just five days because he said he was overpaying me for doing little to no work. He was paying $11 an hour to do whatever he needed to be done outside including maintenence of not only his property, but of his tenants properties as well. he would have me run long errands, even driving to Maryland just to exchange and return car parts for his personal vehicle. I had no problem with him not paying me, but probably because I only worked for 5 days, and he did pay me money for gas I used. Although Richard comes off as a nice guy at first who is friendly, that changes real quick. Within two days he was attitudal and condescending towards me and my girlfriend who also worked for him. He never tells you what to do and expects you to know what he wants next. He has a serious case of ADHD and is never specific with directions. I had to run and find him after every little task I finished because he would never tell me what to do. When he “let me go” he told me I would hide from him and that I hardly did any work. The truth of the matter is that he would be the one hiding in his house while I was looking for him and since his employees aren’t allowed in the main house and only in the office around back, I would wait sometimes 15-20 minutes for him to return before I could yet again ask him what he wants me to do. The worst experience I had in the short time I was there was having to clean out a tenants house in Marshall who had trashed the place and left bags of trash piled in the kitchen and everywhere else. There was hay in the basement from where they raised chickens, that’s right, they raised chickens in the basement and I had to clean it up. He told me to take all the trash out and not to worry about cleaning it and as I took the trash out in the morning, he had a “potential renter” come by in the afternoon and look at the house. The house hadn’t been cleaned at all and ants, rat feces, and liquid oozing from the trash bags that were there before were still there as I was told not to worry about cleaning it up. Overall, I would highly advise you not to work for Richard Colandrea. He is a terrible boss and is not specific or direct with orders given which is the least of your worries with him. As I’ve read he doesn’t pay, so I’m cashing my check from today ASAP and looking for a new, and much better job. Please read this before you work for him. It will save you time, money, and lots of frustration. .
