My name is Krystal Simmons. I’ve worked here at Golden Era since 1998. I’ve been a member of the Sea Organization (a fraternal organization of those who’ve dedicated their lives to achieving the aims and goals of Scientology) since late 1991.
I work in the Human Resources area of Golden Era Productions. I’ve been in the area pretty much throughout my duration here, since 1999.
As you know, Ron Miscavige worked here. He’d been here since 1985 in the Music Department. From my experience, both my personal experience and from complaints filed by other staff on Ron Miscavige, one would summarize his behavior, performance and attitude as difficult, inconsiderate, self-important, self-seeking and considering himself above the law. I’m providing facts below so that you may draw your own conclusion as to the credibility and integrity of this individual.
At that he literally charged toward me. Honestly, I didn’t think he’d do anything as I was a slight woman at the time. But I was wrong about this, and he pushed me up against the door.
In addition to Ron’s behavior to staff, he was also notably dishonest. He artfully twisted the truth to suit himself on many occasions. When seeing this pattern I’d began to think “he’s like a used car salesman.” Of course I wouldn’t have uttered this at the time. Then in one discussion when boasting about his skills he said that before coming to Gold he’d made a living as a SALESMAN! Combine that with the fact that he had also been in the Marines and … well, looking back, his behavior shouldn’t have been surprising.
There is another complaint that was filed by a staff member stating that when she went to the Avis Rental Car company and the person who worked there learned she was a Scientologist he spoke to her about Ron Miscavige. The employee stated that he usually never has problems with Scientologists and was surprised with Ron’s behavior. He stated that Ron was very rude and was ill-mannered in his dealings with him. So much so, that the employee stated that he would not service Ron in the future and did not want his business.
Ron never could and never would live up to any standard of any well-intentioned group.
The above are only a few of several complaints from staff and non-Scientologists alike. We are a group whose ethics and moral standards are a little higher than most. Ron never could and never would live up to any standard of any well-intentioned group.
