My Website

I was an original member of the Planet Feedback site long before it went to Intelliseek. I also served on a panel to give my insights about McDonald's restaurants and was named commentator of the year because I used to actually be a lot nicer with my comments...LOL! Glad to see its back again to its original intention - to get the complaint/compliment out there to the company and give readers responses to such letters. I am on the board of a not for profit organization that puts on a family festival every June/July for our residents. We have free entertainement, kids games and local celebrities to judge our contests and dog show. Its a wonderful family event culminated by a spectacular fireworks display set to music.

My Companies

I've written letters to the following companies.

Recently in the Cleveland area there was a huge job fair held at the
Independence Ohio Holiday Inn. It was sponsored by the "Unemployement
Guide" in our area and they had over 100 businesses represented.
However the problem arose when the stopped the pre-registration and told
people they could just "show up" without prio registration.
I work around this area and from what I heard from the businesses in that
immediate area it was a nightmare.
People started arriving at 4am the morning of and the hotel was overbooked
on reservations from others who figured that being a hotel guest they would
have first choice in line.
There were over 5,000 persons who showed up. People were late for work
because the freeways were totally blocked up with traffic and when they did
finally get to their work place there were no parking spaces because the
people who atteneded this job fair parked wherever there was an empty space
for a mile around the hotel. They even parked on the shoulder of the
interstates (480 & 77).
It was the most un-organized event anyone had seen.

My nephew attened as the HR rep for his company. Ironically his company has
had their 4 jobs for couriers posted for over 3 months in every local
paper, on the internet and in the "Unemployment Guide" but they had not one
application before the job fair. At the job fair he had over 250 applicants
for these 4 jobs and so far has 30 that he can confirm have the
qualifications needed for the job such as vehicular insurance and a valid
drivers license.
When he asked a few of them why they never put an application in before
that day they said they never read the paper nor knew about them. (Huh???)

I see these job fairs as being a sign of the times and if they just would
have held them at about 4 other hotels at each of the areas of
town...south, north, east, west this could have been avoided.

Has anyone else seen this happen in their area lately?

It amazed me to see on MSN a complete listing of the corporations and
businesses that have either closed or laid off employees to the tune of
245,000 + persons.

And this is going to continue to be a domino effect because once
unemployement funds run out, peoples savings and retirement accounts are
used up what is left for these people to do but go on welfare.
And unlike the great depression of before we have more assistance/welfare
programs in place but these will eventually dry up also.
So where does that leave us?

I understand that we need to jump start the economy but giving help in the
form of bale outs would work better if these monies were more closely
I mean Las Vegas trips, Arizona Spa trips, purchasing of private
jets...these were stopped for the most part, but then these financial
institutes will find a way to use this bale out money to keep their own
salaries from declining.
Obama has the right idea by capping salaries for the CEO/Presidents/owners
of these companies helped out by the bale out...but how will this help to
make these busineese more viable and sturdy? These people already have
their retirement packages put aside and its probably more than what we can
even imagine.

I shudder to even imagine what is going to happen when more large
corporations and even smaller businesses continue to close

I would love nothing more than to see NO more issues regarding Target's
return/exchange policy. I can remember letters in PFB before it went to
Intelliseek regarding the change of this policy and how angry people were.
I can admit the first time I was angry also, but then the more I thought
about it the more I realized that if you havea receipt, then there is no
question regarding if the item was purchased there or not.

And while there will always be thieves and criminals who think its easier
to steal from others than to work to obtain their own money/necessities,
then we need to have some sort of policy/procedure in place to protect
those of us who do work hard for what we have.

As many people who complain about Targets policies and procedures for
returns/echanges...why hasn't Target come up with an easier way of
accomodating their loyal customers and insert an electronic tracking device
in all their merchandise. It can be something smaller than a grain of rice
and not able to be seen but when something is brought back it can be
tracked on their computer and will read whether the item was purchased or
I know its a far fetched idea but one would think in this age of
electronics someone could come up with some sort of device to do this at a
reasonable price so that the customer only has a barely noticable increase
in prices.

Again...just a thought.
