Ok, my today’s post is not any product review in fact not a beauty related writing. Today I want to share an experience with you all. I never wanted to do this but I think some people really need criticism and we must take out the mask from their faces.
As many of you know that I am a Software Engineer and I got a chance to work with few companies in my career. I had an experience of working with a company name Ozzit Creations. It means Ozair Creations. This guy got his business degree from abroad somewhere , belongs to a reputed and elite class background. He finishes his degree and decide to open an IT company and he named it Ozzit Creations.
I joined this company last year in August and remained a part of the company for just 6 months. The company got started from some in house projects which includes some web-apps and few mobile apps. When I joined them they were developing 2 of their major in house projects and one client based project. The in house project includes Urbanite.pk
The website is about online food delivery site. The business to get contract done with the restaurants and provide a delivery service for their clients. We used to get as many restaurants into the panel which increase the restaurant popularity also.Now, i feel important to tell you the details about their business so whatever I am saying make sense. Their were 3 types of packages which Urbanite offers to their clients.
- Restaurants who want Urbanite to deliver food for them, the idea was good for those restaurant who do not offers home delivery. The restaurants were listed with their menu on the website. Just place your order and Urbanite riders will pick the food for you from the restaurant and delivers it at your door step.
- Restaurants who don’t want to avail the delivery service but still like to use Urbanite for placing order. which means place your order and restaurant will receive the order and directly delivers it to you on your door steps.
- Restaurants or any vendor ( designers, flower shop etc) want to use the website feature page by placing their ads on it. Those ads only mention the details of the vendor like their address, facebook URL , telephone number etc.
Now, i don’t want to get into the technicality. But after 3 months of my joining I saw people started getting fire and they were not being paid for that month and deducting salary without any reason are their regular routine. And then when I received my November salary, some thousands were deducted from my salary. I went to the Account/HR manager he asked that it is because of the holiday I did this month. This didn’t make sense because I was a permanent employee and I could avail my leaves without any deduction. Then same happened when I received my December salary. And this time when I went to manager I just asked do you really know how much is my salary or not? I asked him to look into this matter and after looking he said that it was a mistake on his end he calculated my salary wrong and my amount will get adjusted to my January pay. But guess what my pay never came.. Even 15 days of Feburary passed and none of my salary came. I got another job and had to resign, I resigned with completing a proper notice period of 1 month (30 days) and I knew that now I will not get my money in dreams even. And exactly same happened. They never paid my deducted amount , my complete January pay, my Feburary 15th days pay. All in all they ate my over 75 Thousands :(. My so called CEO, Mr.Ozzair Bukhari and his right arm Mr. Zaigham Hidayatullah never answer my calls, nor emails. I was instructed to their staff that don’t let her in if she ever comes to office. Mr CEO has a sister too Miss, Fatin Bukhari who is running their another brand name TASTEA. Tastea is a bubble tea which is officially located at Port Grand Karachi, but also available at Urbanite and now heard in some restaurants too.
I am not the only one who faced this I can name many many people. But to keep it short our CTO, our technical developers, even riders (delivery boys) and many other faced this issue. They wanted their web layout and functionality to be changed to new technology name NOP COMMERCE and for this they hired a developer on a contract. The guy was very honest and innocent and they DID NOT pay him his last installment of contract which was somewhere between 40-60K.
Its been 6 months now I am still trying to get what I am at right to have. But no response. I never wanted to insult them publically but today I really feel like saying it all. And the reason I wrote a comment on their facebook status on Saturday, 3rd August 2013 and the comment got deleted and I got reported to their page.
Please, think before joining the company or if you are any vendor think before you make any contract. There are lot more better Websites who are offering same services but very managed and organized. If I talk from customer view, they never ever deliver food on time. I ordered TONS of times when I was in the company. And you need to wait for approx 1.5-2 hours for your food.
