MOST JOB LISTINGS ARE SCAMS
I notice when looking for work on line almost all make you go to a website and register before applying. Why not just let you send the resume and cover letter? Because most of the time the job doesn't really exist, they just want your info and email to send you junk mail and other marketing offers like for the trade schools.. You end up wasting 15 to 30 minutes filling out the registration for nothing.

If we didn't have one of the most Goddamn corrupt governments’ on the planet, they would not be able to get away this crap. Goddamn our government is nothing but a stinking cesspool of corruption.

Sears and Macy’s should be sued for age and reverse race discrimination. I worked as a bench technician at a couple different companies for about 18 years but was laid off as most of those type jobs were outsourced overseas..

In 2008 I applied at Sears here in So. California for a Appliance Repair Technician and took a long test and aced it. When I was called in for an interview, the hiring manager seemed concerned about my age (45) and mentioned a few times about the physical aspects of the job. I assured him that I am in excellent health and could easily handle the work. The next week I called and I was told I was over qualified for the job which of course means I was too old.

Several months later the HR from Sears called me about a appliance inspection type position. Because it had been over 6 months I had to take the test again so I did. When I was called in again for an interview this hiring manager asked if I was bilingual and I of course replied no. He said many of their customers are now Hispanic so they prefer bilingual. Of course I was not hired. They could of atleast had the decency to tell me this upfront that so I didn’t waste several hours of my time.

I had a similar experience at Macy's when applying for seasonal work around Christmas that year.. And like a slap in the face, I keep seeing the same jobs listed over and over again..

Total reverse discrimination and age discrimination. it's the same
with most of these companies. If our government wasn't so Goddamn
rotten and corrupt they would never get away with this crap.

I contacted a lawyer as was told the unwritten law is employers’ CAN discriminate against White English Speaking Americans, they just can't discriminate against NON-White and/ or Non English speaking Americans
