The truth won't get you a job
Lots of Charisma
Everything looked good on her resume, she was very professional and enthusiastic in her interview and just had that… thing. That self-starter attitude that made you feel like “this girl is going to get stuff done.”
Well… ran a background check and literally nothing checked out. She was not actually licensed in her field like she claimed, and she had about a dozen priors for various white collar crimes. None of her work history or references checked out. I guess she was just hoping that her charisma would win us over and that we wouldn’t bother checking up on her. (uhB4)
On the Spot
Family owned a trucking company. Literally everyone in my immediate family has or had a CDL. Mom’s turn to take the newbie for a road test pre hire. During the road test, they were involved in an accident (they were hit while stopped). The company was based out of Indiana. Accident happened in Illinois. Newbie gets arrested on the spot.
Come to find out he has warrants that hadn’t been out long enough for the background check service we used to get them yet. One of the warrants… stalking a female dispatcher from the previous trucking company he worked for. (zombiemann)
I hired a girl, she interviewed well. First day she threw up some red flags, but I figured I was misjudging or misinterpreting. People start missing money and one of my belongings disappears, which had never happened prior to her hiring.
She was insulting everyone and making customers uncomfortable and I wanted her gone (less than four full weeks from her start date) but didn’t want to pay unemployment.
Finally do a search; arrest records in multiple states involving domestic violence and theft. She ended up saying she could “just rape” one of my barely legal employees so I fired her for sexual harassment. (achemcgee)
