        I am going to try not to swear..but right now, I am so pissed it is not even funny, so bear with me.

        I just got a lead on a job while I was chatting with Lips, so I hung up, and filled out the application.  It was for a new position just in.

        I filled out the whole application, which I thought was a little too personal to begin with, but this is for a major Corporation, so I figured they must know what they can get away with...seemed a little iffy to me, but I filled it in.

        Anyway, the very end, its asking me if I , or anyone in my family has ever been on Welfare, TANF, Foodstamps, AFDC,  in the last 18 months.
        Or after 1997...blah, blah, blah.....

        Well, I am not on them now, which if you read my post before, you know my feelings on this..I AM entitled to them.  I have 3-4 weeks of unemployment left, and could probably use them, but since I waste my money on gambling..don't feel that it is right, and don't take them.

        But in 2004, when I had cancer, I had to breakdown, and go on them.  So I answered their question. Yes, I was on foodstamps.  It was a checkmark on a box.  It was supposedly to fill out a form for some kind of e-credit.  Should this cost me a job?????

        THEN..at the very, after I finish anwering the welfare questions, it takes me back to the job page and says I am NOT qualified for the job.

        THIS is all they are basing this on as far as I can see, I had not even submitted my resume, and I was HIGHLY qualified for this job.

        IS THIS LEGAL??  It definately is not right.  >:(
        What do you think??

        I would be p****d off too.  I don't see the relevance of it.  It sounds like discrimination to me.  Are you able to fill it in again with a "no" in the appropriate box and see what happens?

        It had a bunch of questions..18 months, 6 months, then since 1997..well, I went on then for a couple of months in 2004. 

        This was a form, looked like a government form, asking about if you were a veteran, etc,

        It got signed, dated, it was called an e-credit.  It was within the application process.  But as soon as I say I was on government help, I get disqualified for a JOB???  What the hell is this???

        This is from the PEPSI-COLA Corporation...I should have known..I don't even like PEPSI.  I am a COKE drinker!!

        you just made me cry...you sounded like my mother.  She always had the feeling if it wasn't meant to be..it wasn't meant to be.  You said it perfect...I have always followed her philosophy on that.  That goes for anything..not just jobs.

        Nal,

        I would write them SUCKERS back or call them and DEMAND why you are are not qualified. I think these places have gotten really really picky with the economy....they are down right walking the edge to being illegal.

        I am really sorry your upset hun....your better than them anyway. Keep the faith...and remember we are your family....and will always be here for you.

        I would demand answers, but to be truthful:

        Discrimination cannot be done for the following reasons:

        Age, sex, religion, race, national origin.

        However, this leaves the door WIDE open to discrimination for "Other" reasons.

        I'd call them up..

        Oh, in conclusion? I WORKED at the Coke Distributor in Tualitin in 1996 for a few months. Union shop but night manager was fun.

        He about died laughing when I was leaving and he gave me 4 cases of coke. I said "Oh thanks, I guess I can find someone who likes this stuff!" I was a heavy pepsi drinker, but now down to more water (Heavy coffee) and that's all...:D

        Thanks Boo!
        And you know, I really felt like I was lowering myself in the first place applying for this job..I have never worked in anything but Government/Military type Corporations, but it is slim pickins right now, and my time is running out.  So I decide to try something commercial...and PEPSI...how low can I go, I am thinking to myself..Boo, you just don't know, swear to GOD, I would not even allow people to put it in my refridgerator...I have always been such a DIE HARD COKE LOVER...years ago when they changed the formula, me and my friends formed a boycott to bring back the old coke..
        Anyway..I always said..PEPSI SUCKS,  Reeeealllly Freaken mean it now!!!!!!!
        I am going to Unemployment tomorrow, and telling them about this, and seeing their take on it.

        I don't think so blue...it was like a government form within the application process.  As soon as I filled it out, it said I wasn't qualified for any jobs, when indeed I am so overly qualified, but they wouldn't even know that because they wouldn't even let me submit my resume.

        I would not want to work there anyway now after that blue...I just had to vent..I have never seen such blatant discrimination.

        I wanted to see what you guys thought too before I went to go complain about it tomorrow.
        thanks

        I hope you do complain.  I think its disgraceful that they can dismiss people like that for that reason. 

        Let us know how you get on.
