To respond to the race issue, there were several of us (same Race who applied) for the position and all were NOT considered. The Manager cannot claim for experience since we are more experienced than those who were hired. It cannot be for education since we all have the same educational level. As far as work performance, we have praises from our peers on our professionalism and work ethics. In fact, even for the Technician positions, the newly people who got hired were of a different race despite the high percentage of Applicants in our Demography. With this being said, it always ends up that this guy has something against a certain Demography.
To respond to the age, I am over 50 and the newly hired were younger than me (in their 40's). I guess this is not much of an issue.
As long as this guy is the Manager, I thought of just moving on since I do not have a chance. The only reason that I wanted an answer is because my peers insist that I escalate this. The way they see it, I should be on TOP of the List and deserve the position. I also think this is a matter of standing up for my "Principles"
Please let me know. Thanks
Thanks you for your advise. Is it advisable that I ask to audio record the conversation? If the Manager refuses a recording? What should I do? I'm just concerned that since I am a timid type that he will exploit and take advantage of that meeting. Any thoughts? Thanks
I will definitely contact you for any legal questions in the future.
