What a lazy day we’ve had. Jim worked on taxes while I played video games. Sure, I made the bed, folded laundry, emptied the dishwasher and other menial tasks but it didn’t really do much to fill the day. I even heated lunch in the microwave. Boy, does my finger hurt. Beep, beep it’s just maddening.
The Nissan interview procedures has been weighing on my mind. A friend in the Human Resources business said marriage and children questions are bad as well as them taking a copy of my license (I forgot to mention that the other day). I went ahead and shot off an email to the management of the dealership. I don’t wish to file a lawsuit or anything like that against them. I just want them to know what happened. I emailed the General Manager. If I don’t get any kind of response from it then I guess I’ll mail a hard copy.
I was in your East Charlotte location on February 4th. I interviewed with the service manager, Glenn. I think it's important for you to know that he asked a lot of illegal questions of me. He asked if I was married, if I had children. He asked for my driver's license, and then made a copy of it. Having my photo, from what I understand is also illegal.
While I don't think it is illegal, you may want to remove the last page from your application that asks for a lot of personal information. This information can be used for identity theft and as a way to discriminate against potential applicants. Removing that page and only requiring it when an offer of employment is made is a good way to protect yourself from potential discrimination suits.
I'm not writing this email to be hateful, or to get anyone in trouble. It's possible no ill intentions were made but perhaps, better interviewing/application policies and procedures are needed at your dealerships.
It may not be worded perfectly but I’ve probably spent more time on this than I should have.
Please turn your attention to the scale. I’m at 190 lbs. That’s a lot but that’s actually down several pounds! Hurray for me!
To celebrate the weight loss, we went out to eat. Doesn’t that sound funny? Actually, we didn’t celebrate it. We went out to eat though. Jim found a coupon for Boardwalk Billy’s (their website doesn’t work). I ordered delicious baby back ribs. I took half a rack home. I was full. Jim had some shredded pork. He loved the corn on the cob. We’ll go back – the food was good.
For the remainder of the evening, we’ll probably watch some Netflix movies that we’ve had on hand for a while.
