What would happen if job candidates treated you the way you treat them? You might be receiving letters such as this one?

You know this is so true and it’s sad.
Love it !!
My previous company, the biggest boy on the block, went to an all on-line application & hiring process. The protocol was the same for an entry level line worker as for a 6 figure management or highly skilled position.
It was a hard lesson learned to change that method up.
Love it! This certainly puts things into perspective. I’d show this to my company’s HR department if I didn’t think it would go over their heads…
Tangential to the topic…I am a licensed engineer in Texas. I just received notice that I must complete a one-time background check as a requirement for renewing my license. All well and good, but how about background checks for newly elected and appointed officials as a requirement for taking office?
Now, don’t go talking crazy talk. You know all politicians are good and holy.
I already do a version of this. I use Glassdoor, BBB.org, Indeed.com, and Google. If I find that less than 50% of your employees approve of your CEO, I probe deeper to find out why. I research to see if the complaints happen in one geographical area or throughout the organization. I dig through news stories to see if your organization (or my potential supervisor) is accused of any crime.
What blows my mind is that, if I find piles of bad press, companies demand the benefit of the doubt. Their rap sheet could read like Bernie Madoff’s, but they feel like I’m being unreasonable because they are “making changes” to correct that. Has anyone else experienced this?
