Send her home
Ted – Hi, my name is Ted and I’m calling to see if you employ Sally?
Me- Yes, she just started here last week.
T- I’m Sally’s parole officer. I wanted to check and see if she will be dealing with any children at her work?
Me- Yes, this is a family fun center that is full of kids. Is there a problem?
T- Yea, you need to send her home right now. She is not allowed to work anywhere with kids. Did you do a background check on her?
Turns out she and her boyfriend had a kid together but we’re both addicted to drugs. To get the baby to stop crying they would put a bag over the baby’s head and make it pass out. One night they left it over the baby’s head too long and it stopped breathing. (Cat_In_A_Hamburger)
He’d actually been fired for repeatedly posting photos to the company Instagram and twitter which contained hidden ‘items’ that weren’t meant to be in there. I pushed and pushed to find out exactly what they meant, and it turns out this person we were interviewing to manager our social media had been posting photos with his genitals hidden in the photos for months before his bosses had noticed.

I was working at a pretty remote site up in Northern Alberta and the RCMP showed up. Turns out one of the welders was one of the most wanted men in Canada, and was hiding up there for some ridiculous amount of time…. he apparently murdered a gas station clerk in a botched robbery. This is why you should do background checks. (ooo-ooo-oooyea)
