Jobless? More Employers Say You Need Not Apply Although More Americans Got Jobs in February, One Category of Workers Got Kicked to the Curb

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 04, 2011 3:35 pm

Unemployment fell in February to 8.9 percent, and US companies added 192,000 people to their payrolls, but one category of workers is increasingly facing an overt form of discrimination.

Look anywhere where jobs are posted, and you'll see more examples. This discrimination isn't subtle. It's not covert. It's right out in the open, stated in the listings: A phone manufacturer looking to fill a marketing job stipulates "No unemployed candidates will be considered at all." An electronics firm looking for an engineer says it will "Not consider/review anyone NOT currently employed regardless of the reason." A Craigslist posting for an assistant restaurant manager in New Jersey says all applicants "Must be currently employed.

There has to be law created and enforced to stop this blatant discrimination against the long term unemployed. It has to end now!

Starbucks did this to me. I was called by a recruiter and asked 35 min. worth of quesitons & at the completion of the questions and she already had my resume from Career Builder she said I was definately a candidate for Starbucks as a manager.

She then refred me to a website link to take a MOCK store manager webinar...where it asks various questions & shows video senarios about business reports, P&L reports, and scheduling along with customer service situations. I did this too and was called the next day by the district mgr. where I was told that I had did better than usual on this MOCK webinar especially on the P&L (profits & loss) portion. Whick is what she told me they use as a mesure to see if they have really been a mgr. that had experience with P&L.

Well she talked to me for over an hour and asked further questions, they she asked me about my employer and asked how much notice I would have to give if I were to be hired. I then replied NONE. I asked her if she had a copy of my resume and she said yes, so I asked her why she was asking the question as I have been out of work for over 2 years. The conversation turned south real fast and then she said well they were looking for candidates with a more current work history, but she would keep me on file.

Never heard anything since then over a year ago

superstevies: terrible all the time wasted for you. It really is an endless heap of nothing. I don't know how to keep the strength up to keep going through this over and over again. Maybe we have to lie and say: "Just a two week notice"..and see what happens. It looks like we have to change our strategy in getting a job. Like, for me, putting down a different age, year I was born, etc.
Also..FYI..put down contract work, freelance work, consulting work for the last two years...really, really, really.

ET I agree with ya, but the only prob. then is that they hire you then let ya go 2 weeks later for lying on your application.

I don't know how to get around saying you have not been out of work. I tried that once with getting a job at Home Depot. and after the interview 3 days later they called back and told me they thought I had only been out of work for a month like I put ...but they verified when doing refrence checks I had not been employed by them for over 2 years...so damned if I do and damned if I don't.
