Has a human resources officer ever warned you away from a job?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (15385points) May 23rd, 2016

When I was applying for a job at a 24 hours McDonald’s the manager had bloodshot eyes and was crying and told me not to continue trying to work at his location. Is that a bad sign of what?

Yes a very bad sign.

Yes, I’d say it is a bad sign, but of what? Why in the world would he be like that? I am confused. (sorry, that was no help)

I can’t help but wonder what transpired to evoke this kind of reaction out of the manager.

Possibly. Then again, it could be the opinion of one manager who isn’t cut out for their job. It’s not uncommon for a person to be promoted because they are simply good in their existing position.

It might be worth having a private chat with some of the other employees. If they imply that they aren’t given the tools, resources, and training to do their job well, then withdraw the application.

Did they have bullet-proof glass all over the place or you found spent condoms and needles in the parking lot?

They had a full seating full of senior citizens from the homeless shelter.

At 6am. At another McDonald’s. They were all homeless indigenous. One asked me for money. I said no. All I had is a credit card.

It might have been a tough McDonalds to work in, so the manager was at the end of their rope. But that is not a “Human Resources Officer”. HR people would not answer in that manner.
