... work for us anymore.

one never showed up in spite of me arranging transportation and paying for his rail pass. the other quit after a week, told our employees he was "bored."

sigh. have since filled the jobs. good pay and benefits, in a warehouse. should i be surprised?

granted, warehouse work isnt the same as white collar work, but neither dude went to college or had such experience.

14 bucks an hour plus benefits is great, i cant believe they arent here anymore

The "occupiers" probably just wanted you to send them a weekly check while they sit on the park bench or in Momma's basement all day

NO, but please tell us here what is the rate of all of those that you cold hire are actually still in that job 6 months later. I have some experience in this matter, and even when I was reccomending candidates for job openings...and selecting only those who I thought would perform well in the job openings I was picking candidates for...50% still being in that job 6 months later was very optomistic. Cold hires, without a selection process, was a lot less...and these were job seekers who approached me.I didn't go looking for them.. But I suspect you knew that would be the case before you asked us this question. My question is, "What in children's stories, always lives under a bridge"?

100% have stayed. this particular distribution center opened in the spring of 2010. not one warehouse employee has left. the only two people who left have been sales people. one went back to college, the other was fired.

No surprise at all! Why hire someone that thinks YOU (the boss) are the enemy? Please join us here... http://occupywallst.org/forum/i-am-1-of-tens-of-thousands/#comment-595175
