DirectTV - Denied Job
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA -- Hi everyone, my name is Erick and I am a college student. A few years ago, I got arrested (and yes, felony charges) and the judge sentenced me to probation and gave me a withheld; meaning I am not a convicted felon.
I went to apply to Direct TV and the moment the leading man asked about my history, he said "I can't hire someone who has committed an act of dishonesty."
I was kicked out and asked to leave and not even given a chance to be heard. Now, I am respectful and courteous, and I understand a history is a history, but since that time of my life I have gone back to college, gotten my Associates Degree, and finishing up my Bachelors. The people I saw working there were a bunch of slow, sleazy, and insipid individuals who couldn't tell you the difference between an antenna and dish.
For not hiring someone 'dishonest' they sure do a lot of dishonest acts. They charged my mom $198.85 for a BASIC subscription!!! They insisted she signed for it but I was there! DirectTV are the most lying, deceiptful, and incredulous company I have ever heard of. DO NOT buy from them or waste your money. Don't even bother applying for a job there if you have ever had a run in with the law because they apparently like to keep top of the line Harvard educated students there. A big freaking joke.
