Remember how I came home really steamed about the process and asked WHAT in the BLUE MOON does asking for my CREDIT background have to do with driving a GARBAGE TRUCK???? Well inquiring minds wanted to know so I kept on - and GUESS WHAT? IT IS ILLEGAL for them to ask ANYTHING pertaining to my credit status UNLESS it is DIRECTLY RELATED to my job. Driving a truck, picking up garbage, and going through recyclables do NOT in ANY WAY relate to that job. So do a lot of OTHER things - that employers are crossing the lines on because of the economy people are getting nosey and it's NONE of their business. I've shut down one FB page, and I'm considering deleting another. There is a buzz that employers are toying with the idea of asking for your password to peruse your FB page - THAT is also PRIVATE but they say it tells the real you - and well -not that mine has anything but a couple pictures and coupon sights - I'd really rather they didn't look. IT's invasion of privacy. ANd in MY MIND - it's an invasion of my FRIENDS (mainly all of YOU) as well. ANd FAMILY. They also can't ask me - DO I HAVE CHILDREN, AM I A DRINKER, HAVE I BEEN ARRESTED (can ask have I been legally convicted of a crime) there are a lot of things they ABSOLUTELY AND LEGALLY can not ask and if they do? I can either tell them - it's illegal to ask or refuse to answer. I KNEW that credit app on a garbage truck was hooey. And now? I am going back there and ask for my application back. I have NO idea what they do with their sensitive material where they keep it, how they shred it - but I've had my identity stolen - and I want it back. I didn't get hired anyway. It's NONE of their business and it was ILLEGAL to ask for it. Nuf sed. I have the complete list I'll post later - I'm off to a power point class.
