Thumbs down Corbin Saddles - Worst Company Ever!!!

After working for this Dysfunctional Company for over 3 1/2 years,They fired me 1 week before Christmas!! Nice Huh? Sales were slow for the last 6 weeks! SO THEY FIRED ME!

XL FORUM MEMBERS BEWARE!!!

DO NOT EXPECT CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM THIS COMPANY!! THEY HAVE NO CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPT. (Many of you already know this)

Mike Corbin (Hannigan) - is not a nice person to work for!! Constant Threats of Firing & pay cuts for the last year or so. Also employed Illegal Workers for years!

Keep this in mind when considering a purchase from them.

That's a shame.

They once made (maybe still do) one of the best seats in the industry.

But they've grown so much that I hear tales of customer service nightmares.

And I'm always saddened to hear of a company that doesn't treat their employees well.

If they don't care about their employees, how much do you think they'd care about their customers.

Hope you land on your feet.

Sorry to hear about the firing! Hit them where they live and stretch out that unemployment as long as you can!

Anyhow....just for you I won't buy one of their seats.

But in reality I think the seat lock is fricken stupid and I sat on a Corbin Hollywood Solo last week and didn't like it.

But to get fired (meaning no lay-off severance.) is just super duper shitty.

Sorry to hear it, John. Treating staff badly is one thing (lots of companies do that), but firing them right before Christmas? And over only a 6 week sales slump? That's just cold. I know it's tough to do, but try to stay positive; I'm sure you'll be back in the game in no time!
