(This is why i cartoon. I swear that there is a cartoon in just about everything)
An ad ran on our local Craigslist. The job was for an office assistant and ap/ar person. If you were interested, interviews were held all afternoon this past Monday.
I went to their interview — granted the place is in a little ole rundown building but what was at the front desk and what was workin on the inside was the big give away the salaries were stinko. Sometimes you can tell.
I completed their app and then spoke to the interviewer. THe guy kept me 10 minutes — told me nearly nothing about the job and asked me maybe 1 or 2 questions about where I worked.
I took the mike and asked why the job was open (“we had a Turkish girl here she took her baby and went home”) and wht the salary was — he said $18 an hour but somehow I think he made that info up; there are also benefits after 6 months (and he did not volunteer any more info). And it also turns out that you will be assisting the CEO with everything…. and help him operate 3 other companies.
Dude, you want an exec admin and you are off by about 15K or 20K a year. This is also tooo much work for one person. It is also taking advantage of who you hired.
He told me the second interviews are next week. I won’t be holding my breath.
My guess is that they will hire what just left: the same type of person. That means I’m definitely a no. I’ve seen this a thousand times in a thousand places: they all want some sort of type and they all keep the status quo intact when a new employee is hired.
I can’t tell you how sickening and sad this is — this is no loss but what i don’t appreciate is that I pretty much was rejected on the spot. I swear he wants another Turkish girl with a kid. And that ain’t me.
It’s a shitty way to run things; nobody else will be given a chance — and even if you are, you will be an outsider. That’s my take on it.
