Despicable HR hiring person; flat-out lied to.
Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 19, 2015
I was flat-out lied to by their HR person and hired for only 6 weeks under false pretense. I was told that the job was long-term with a 90-day probationary period. After they let me go (on good, rehirable terms) the same HR person slipped and reveled in an e-mail that they actually hired me for a term - for a specific project that they needed to complete in 6 weeks. Of course, they paid me significantly less than what most places would as well, but I accepted because of the promise of potential long-term employment. In my opinion, this HR person knew that they would never be able to get some with my skill set and experience hired and working in time to complete this 6-week project for what they were paying, so they lied about it.
Unfortunately, I liked the people I worked with quite a bit, as well as the managers. Great people - despicable HR department.
