Here is the email I wrote to Boston Market for a catering driver position. i also called them. Since they never contacted me back and don't care about scamming people and wasting their time, I decided to post it here so that you won't be scammed.
The advertisements you have posted for this job are less than
forthcoming as to the true nature of this work. Your website says
catering drivers can earn up to $25 an hour. It's made to sound at
least to be steady, part-time work.
When I was at the interview, Amy the hiring manager who I met in Lake Mary, FL today told me:
1) I could possibly go weeks without being asked to do a delivery.
2) That she had no average or potential median of what I could expect
to earn, no range on how many hours I could work, if any.
I commented that I couldn't count on this in any way then. She agreed. I
said I wished she would have told me this instead of having me go over
there. I could sense that this is not what she wanted to hear. Maybe I
should have said "Great, I love to not know when I can earn an income!
How do I get started!"
What you are offering is not work, they are mini, tiny projects, if
any; that can't be counted on. That's how it should be advertised
because that's the way it was presented to me at the interview.
I ask any one of you in HR, if not advised otherwise, would any of you
have been satisfied at your interviews or be at your desks today if
Corporate told you that you would be given no information on when or how
long you would be working each week? A rough forecast on what you can
expect to earn? What if they said, don't expect to work at all? Would
you consider this a legitimate opportunity? I should have been advised
of this before I went there.
I'm also upset that I received a decline email from Boston Market *minutes
after I left there. I'm a true bona-fide, excellent work
partner, but I don't appreciate being misled.
Because this is not good; considering the cost of gasoline,
and the loss of other income, to speak with your company about a job
that isn't really a job at all.
