My name is Jessica Sideways and I must admit to a certain level of excitement and camaraderie when I was hired at Rocket Jones. I also believed that Jeff Bristol was a man of good character, a man who would do right by me. I believed him, I trusted him, and I was wrong to do so.
Jeff Bristol is a man who will take your career and eviscerate it on a whim. I know this, because he has done it to me. This is not a man who cares one bit about the truth or doing right by his employees. This is a man who callously, maliciously and wantonly lied about me and if he does it to me with such a cavalier attitude, I can only imagine that he has done it to others. Working for Rocket Jones is career suicide and you’ll never see it coming. I know, because I didn’t.
I felt that Jeff was not just a boss, but a friend. He played me to that level – I honestly could have never seen this coming! Now, I understand why he uses such a weird time keeping system to pay us all! Because if the wind turns and he suddenly decides that he doesn’t want you around for whatever reason – he can easily lie and claim that you falsified your time cards as well.
I sincerely urge you to walk away from Rocket Jones. Run, if you can. It may be hard getting another job, especially once Jeff starts lying about you. But do you really want to lend your labour to a company that would gleefully lie about another human being? Would you really want to live with the uncertainty that Jeff will not only fire you but will also lie about you to any future employer that tries to get in touch with you?
