Yesterday I talked to a recruiter that I was working with for a job I had interviewed extensively for. To start, let me say that I thoroughly enjoy this man’s candor. Sugar coating does nothing for anyone in the adult world.
Without further ado, I give you Reason 4,562 not to hire Anne: Not enough zero tolerance experience.
I actually laughed out loud when he told me they said this. Apparently planning HAZMAT/CBRN preparedness, working with 10ppm IDLH chemicals, and making decisions that could get people killed or destroy resources if I’m wrong is tolerant.
Here’s a sleeping pill for you from my tolerant life well before that: http://www.ucmj.us/ -Start in Chapter 10 and keep reading through the obvious articles because the fun is buried throughout.
What is sad is that I could have done great things for that company and actually illustrated this for them through a well thought out plan. They’ll be singing a sad song soon if they hired a zero tolerance whip-cracker that enjoys his boot on employees’ necks.
Now that I got that off my chest… Have a great rest of your day!
