Why do some employers make it so hard to get a job?
I don't understand this.
I just called up a place that was hiring. They were really interested, until I showed how anxious I was over the phone...then suddenly, it was, "Umm, do you have any serving experience?" And then, suddenly you had to have worked at a 4 star restaurant in order to get a job there.
I'm sorry I've only worked retail, but that doesn't mean that I can't learn how to serve! It's like discriminating against someone because they only have one leg. Well, having SA is like cutting off your leg, so it's a good analogy, but wouldn't a job get sued for discrimination if they said you couldn't work at a job because you have mental or physical problems? How is SA any different?
Sometimes I'd like to say, "Sorry you're so stupid", but I won't. I like having the possibility of getting a job, and getting blacklisted probably won't solve anything.
