Party City - Employment Verification
ORLAND PARK, ILLINOIS -- My daughter worked for Party City and worked her butt off for the Halloween season. This was a temporary job but had the potential to become a permanent job. Well she wasn't asked to stay. So she has been looking for a job since Nov 1, 2012 and no one was calling. Now I know why. Because every potential employer that calls to verify employment has to pay a fee of $21.95. Most employers aren't going to do that and will just pass the applicant by. She finally has found a job and starting working, but now the current employer wants to verify the employment. But they can not (per their rules) pay the fee. So she called the The Work Number to get a letter stating that she worked there and was told that the verification was for employers only. What a rip off. This is all a ploy to get money, this should be illegal. So she can't get the information and pay herself and her employer is not going to pay the fee. So what is going to happen. I'll tell you want, SHE IS GOING TO BE LET GO.
You try to get work in this country and you can't even get employment verification from your previous employers. I will not buy anymore from Party City and I will tell everyone that I know not to shop at Party City. They treat their employees (past or current) like dirt.
