    I have noticed over the years, that the best HR personnel (defined as an HR interviewer who hires the most net productive employees ) has the ability to pick up on the personality of the person being interviewed early in the interview process.

    Is such a person more likely to hire a conservative or a liberal?

    I almost hired a guy until I checked out his Facebook page. He was a member of all sorts of Right-Wing hate groups. Needless to say he never got the callback for this job! Narrow mindedness is NOT an asset!

    So do you think if the hiring company looks at a persons political persuasion they would do like you and base the hire on that? Actually, I would have hired the guy and not a similar liberal.

    I own an art gallery in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We have a VERY diverse clientele and I don't need someone with an anti-gay or racist stance working for me. Not only would that be bad for business but would be morally wrong as well.

    Sound logic Sir. That is a parallel to how we hire, just in the opposite direction.

    Trollolololololol.


    It doesn't matter whether they are left or right, it matters what kind of person they are.

    Scruffy didn't hire a guy because of hate group affiliations. And I noticed he never mentioned conservative or liberal.

    So you'd hire the racist/anti-gay guy. Thanks for clarifying that. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Political affiliation doesnt matter. They either have the skills to succeed at the job or not.

    He might be trolling, but I'm afraid this idiot also means what he says. Just follow the link on his profile and you'll understand.

    I'd like to see your definition to this.

    I'm guessing you have the same definition of "right wing hate group" as the Southern Poverty Law Center does.
