BIG FISH GAMES UNETHICAL HIRING PRACTICES. NEPOTISTS. RACISTS. Seattle Washington
We all know the hiring process is not perfect, that's why we have Fair Hiring and Labor laws to try and protect the rights of the individual. However, still personal preferences, preconceived notions, prejudice, nepotism, racism, etc. still manage to work against these laws. Worse yet, somewhere along the such unfair hiring practices will become a real problem and a problem that does have detrimental effects on the company if it continues to practice unethical hiring. One such company is Big Fish Games. Over the years, myself and over a dozen other individuals have purposely sought positions at this Big Fish for Entry Level and Intermediate positions. We're a group of College Graduates with several years of experience in the positions we've sought at Big Fish. However, over a 9 year period, not one Interview was asked of any of us. We're are a group of male and females from the Seattle area, with one thing in common,... we're Hispanic.
Each of us has applied over a dozen times, for opportunities that were perfect skillset matches and a few entry level positions. Over 9 years all we get are these same automated reply messages:
"Thank you for giving us an opportunity to consider you for a position with Big Fish. We have reviewed your background and qualifications and have found that we do not have an appropriate match for this role at this time. We appreciate your interest in Big Fish and will keep your resume on file for future opportunities with us."
There were several particular positions that requested a Spanish speaking Software Test Engineer at Entry Level. Basically this job is to make sure that dialogue and text are in the correct Spanish language format and spelling. Myself and 7 other of my Hispanic colleagues applied for this position, and not once have we been called for an Interview or a Phone screening. Instead, we get the message above. I learned later on, that a Caucasian person that finished 3 quarters of Spanish from College, obtained that position. This person had no Software Test Engineering Experience ! He was also related to the hiring Manager, according to my research on Facebook and Linkedin.
This is proof enough, that over 9 years of applying for skillset matching opportunities with Big Fish Games and not one Interview hints at a more depraved ruthlessness,... Racism.
I encourage others like us, to Boycott Big Fish Games and all thier products. Don't support Racism, do not buy any games from Big Figh Games.
