WinCo Foods WinCo Foods, Hemet, CA. BEWARE JOB SEEKERS! WinCo Foods uses deceptive advertising. A person thinks that they are applying for work, but is being tricked into "word of mouth advertising" about a new grocery store in the area San Jacinto, California
*General Comment: Misunderstanding
*General Comment: Winco Scam
Recently I recieved a flyer in the mail advertising employment at a new WinCo store in my area. Included on the flyer were instructions on how to apply online via www.careermapping.com. I filled out the online employment application. Once finished with the application I was instructed to report to a new Holiday Inn in my area. So, like so many other unsuspecting people in my area I showed up the next day, only to find a big sign in the doorway that reads something like "WinCo checked out. Due to overwhelming response we are no longer accepting applications"
At this point I knew I had been dooped. I had just remember that the grand opening was the night before at 7:00 P.M. WinCo Foods would have already hired and been training all the needed employees. They had no intention to hire out of this hotel.
Think about this. At the end of the application they say something like "don't tell your friends or family" This is the first reverse psycological trick that they played. Imagine all of us jobseekers telling our friends and family about the new grocery store in town.They tricked us into "word of mouth advertising"
Many jobseekers and myself immediatly went straight to the new WinCo for an Application, only to find out that the boat is already full. I find it very interesting that these flyers arrived in the mail just one day before the grand opening. They already hired there workers atleast a month before. I thought that that I was a jobseeker, but was tricked by WinCo foods into being an instrument of advertising. I won't be fooled Again!
