Ok......venting a little
Thursday, August 19, 2010

Just an update on my blog:

Trying to get my son hired on at the factory where I work. Been trying for over a month and a half now. Still no luck. Seems rather strange to me that a company will send out an e-mail to it’s employees asking if they know anyone wanting to apply for work, then telling them that there are glitches about hiring family or friends?

Anyhoo, It’s a decent paying job. Hope to get him hired on. I’ve come to expect no less by my employer.

Please pardon my simple rant……

Apologies, Z

Howdy FeartheBunnyMan,

My post here was just a way of getting a little something bothering me off my chest. What I found aggravating in this was the way it was done. The job I do isn’t easy and the company I work for has hired family members b4. Out of 10 of those sons and daughters maybe about 2 are left still working for the company.

Anyhoo, they (the company) put out an e-mail requesting that if employees knew of anyone looking for a job to have them apply. I usually don’t do this because ppl (new hires) are shocked with the workload and stunned with the amount of overtime we are inclined to work.

Still it is a decent job which pays reasonable, which may be rare nowadays. I think the company became overwhelmed by the numbers of family members that applied and they knew they could not hire everyone, so to avert argument over who was hired and who was not, they simple chose to hire by other means.

Well, sorry for the personal rant. I just felt like venting a little steam that day.

Thanks for your post, Z

That's not unusual, the nepotism rule...I work on the same floor and with the same department as my brother, but we have totally different job areas which is how my company got around it (they actually got in a bidding war with me against another contractor which made me feel awesome, but I'm just shamelessly bragging here). My dad worked for the company for a long time and my uncle currently works for them, and there's another father-daughter pair that works there too, but in all these cases its totally different job areas (and aside from me and my bro different offices, and including me and my bro different supervisors that we report to)> If its different departments/areas it should not be a huge issue. The problem is when your work brings you in contact with a family member - that creates potential conflicts of interest that a lot of companies don't want to set themselves up for. Is your son looking to work along side you, or is it in a completely different area?
