Apple hides job titles of ex-employees, reclassifies them all as 'associates'

    Hiring her would be like volunteering to have a terminal disease. She may even be brilliant, but she has more baggage and more bad juju than any 10 other disgruntled Apple employees put together.

    So what an AppleInsider wordsmith decided to label as a ‘peculiar business practice’ turns out to be the defacto standard for employment inquiries and HR policies. Do the writers of this crap ever do any research before smearing Apple? Or is it just about smearing Apple? 
    Smeared Apple? Give it a break. Why are you always with the drama accented routine?

    hey - here's a thought.  Maybe the company rescinded their offer because they found out who they were dealing with.  Who wants to bring that into their organization?

     
    and her self-admitted issues of narcotic abuse.

    It’s what passes for journalism these days.

    Because secrecy! Who cares if ex-employees will have a harder time finding a job?

    Since when do companies maintain a "public record" of former (or current) employees job titles?

    They don't.  And as everyone else has pointed out, employment verification doesn't require title checks.

    Doesn't bode well for her credibility on other complaints.

    Apple apparently do, but they change when they become former.  As in the article.

    Here is a thought - read the article next time.  "Reportedly, a job verification service was unable to verify her resume because of the change. The verification was delayed by almost a week, and during that time, the company withdrew its job offer."

    The company moved on to someone else because Apple took a week to verify the person's employment.  How would you feel if you were a C-level employee and the company changed your title to 'associate' - which is basically the level of a retail employee?  A company can only provide job title and dates of employment to verify employment.  Apple changing people's job titles after they leave is a pretty lousy thing to do.

    Tbh it sounds like the job verification service did a pretty lousy job.  Given that this woman was all over the tech news it should have been easy as pie to verify that she worked at Apple with the job title she claimed.  The ire is being misdirected, this crappy verification company cost her the job, not Apple.

    Keep whining to the pubic looking for sympathy. Soon everyone will know who you are and no one will hire you.

    BTW, what company withdraws and offer while they are doing a background check and employment verification?
