Roadie has refused to make a payment for a gig I did almost one month ago. Every time I asked to be paid, there has been some kind of excuse or delay to why they're not paying me, here are examples of what they said:
1. You gave us the wrong routing number to your bank.
(False claim. They would not accept the routing number on my checks and instead accepted the routing number from my online banking.)
2. You didn't tell us that you verified your bank account.
(No other organization asks their contractors or employees to let them know once they've verified their banking. This is automated. It is also is the responsibility of the organization to stay on top of that so they can pay their people.)
3. It takes 4-6 business days to see it in your bank account, depending on your bank.
(Please note that also no other organization that paid me in the same manner took more than 1 or 2 days to the same bank.)
4. We cannot make an immediate deposit into your bank because we are a small organization and a start-up.
(Beyond absurd to make that claim. Anyone can request to make an immediate transfer to someone's bank account. Ask any bank!)
I was fed up with their excuses and the last email conversation with Roadie staff I demanded that they make an IMMEDIATE deposit so I can have it in my bank account the same day, which was today. They ignored the message and did not make the deposit.
Stay away from this company if you don't want to be scammed or work for free.
You've been warned!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
