      So, basically, hiring managers are every bit the shitheads you’ve imagined them to be.

      To be honest, when I was a hiring manager for a health care facility I avoided hiring any single mothers because I did not have one single mother who had a good attendance record. Not one. It was as if they wanted to set their own hours and days. Well, maybe Burger King will let you do it your way. I needed staff to be there to care for the patients and clients. No, I did not discriminate against women, the staff was mostly female. It also was not fair to the other ladies I had to ask to work a double, or call in on a day off because Ms Suzie Noload couldn’t find a sitter.

      A “having no clue” 25 year old hiring person is pretty common and the “I go through hundreds of resumes a day” is total B.S. What they really mean is that they have no time between their personal phone calls and their tweeting for the resumes. And skimming for buzz words only demonstrates laziness and complacency.

      So instead of concentrating on the job, we’re told we have to play little school girl games with the chronically brain dead. Note how the increase in temp agencies has increase as the job market wanes.

      Hello, do any of you know of any empirical studies or legal cases discussing the contents of the slideshow? I am writing my thesis on this for law school, I like the information in the article, but I need something more scholarly.

      The thing is,. these people are not Employers. they’re charlatans. if a TYPO is the disqualifying mark.. the business is a shame. it’s the over privileged elite class. it’s a problem. time for guns. your job is right in front of you.

      They are still running with this bogus wage gap? The myth has been debunked many times before. The so called statistics are taken from jobs all across including doctors and secretaries and those women that work part-time and men who work overtime hours. Check the facts, and check which organization is doing the statistics…once you dig deeper into these companies, you would see that they were somehow affiliated with women groups/organizations. Women already play the victimhood card, of course people won’t dare question that women earn less than men. But the fact is that single women DO earn slightly more than men. And women DO want more stable lifestyles with less risks(less pay) and comfortable working condition(less pay), and take time off to have family(interruption in work). And the reason women earn more degrees is because 1)schools are run by mostly women(sisterhood and feminized courses), and 2) Lots of government help for women! And we haven’t even talk about men are unfairly treated in family law!

      I suspect this “Hiring Manager” will .. always … be … “Hiring” … or, trying to at least.
