Army veteran says job recruiter told her she enlisted 'for a paycheck,' report says
A Wisconsin Army veteran says an employment recruiter slammed her service and wrote in an e-mail that he believed she joined the military for the paycheck "not my freedom," The Stevens Point Journal reported.He put it INTO AN E-MAIL that he didn't think she deserved his thanks for her service. AN E-MAIL. I'm guessing it was a company e-mail, too. This is one of those cases where doing nothing - you know, keeping your fool piehole shut - is a million times better than saying something and proving that, yes, you are a fool.
Gabriella Barrett, 23, who was medically discharged from the Army in 2011, was reportedly in line for a customer service job at a Stevens Point, Wis., company. She was screened by Randstad, a recruiting company. But as she was putting the finishing touches on the hiring process she told the paper an employee at the firm, Sergio Ortiz, sent her an "infuriating" e-mail.
He was fired, and I can't say I blame his company. Not only did he say something incredibly stupid and offensive, but he was idiotic enough to do it in writing, where it can haunt him - and his company - the rest of his life. This is someone guaranteed to make your company look bad. I hope he doesn't get a job in the fast food industry, because as certain as little green apples are green he's gonna spit in your food.
Ms. Barrett, thank you for your service. Sergio Ortiz, enjoy your job search. I'm doing my part to make sure your name - Sergio Ortiz - shows up in plenty of searches so that future employers can see exactly the caliber of person they are potentially hiring. Due diligence and all that. Have fun finding a job in this instant digital age, schmuck.
Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.
That is all.
