(I get applicants every day and the conversation goes exactly like this: EVERY-DAY.) *One of the Big 3 Auto Makers Business and Plant Managemnt
Applicant:“I’d like to see someone in Human Resources please”?
Me: ” Im sorry, there is no one to talk to”.
Them: “Ok, I’d like to leave my resume then.”
Me: “Sorry, we don’t accept any resumes.”
Them: “Fine. Then can you tell me when that person would be in?”
Me: “There wont be any person in to talk to. The Human Resources here is not for that. They don’t hire.”
Them: “Ok. Where can I send my resume to?”
Me: “They wont accept any resumes”.
Them: “Then, how can I apply here?”
Me: “You cant apply here or at any sites. Youll have to go online and fill out an application and attach your resume there.”
Them: “Ok. Where do I send it to then?”.
Me: “Ive no clue. You have to go online.”
Them: “Well, then…when will someone look at it and call me in for an interview?”
Me: “They wont call you back and probably youll not hear from anyone. They will call you if theres some opening somewhere-sometime”
Them: (now totally frustrated): “How then do you even apply for a job, get my resume looked at, and just TALK to someone”?
Me: “You wont. They’ll call you maybe sometime.”
That’s how it is here in Michigan whether its McDonalds, Home Depot or Walmarts…nearly everywhere. You have executives trying to get into minimum
wage jobs with very impressive qualifications.
Its the same for everyone: Go online and apply. Jump into the stack of applicants....all of which will never even get an acknowledgment they
In the end...when after a time they try again and my answer is still the same:"You have to apply online".
So...it breaks down to thousands of applicants that will never get a callback, or interview, or will be offered anything. They become just a number
in stacks of 1,000's and all of those...will have to start the above process all over again.
