I accepted a job offer with this company. I was told to go to orientation on a Saturday and that it would be from 3 pm to 5 pm, possibly a little later. When I showed up I was told that it would be 5 hours. I told the trainer that I was told that it would be about 2 hours and he said: "We can probably do it in 2 but if anyone asks you will say you took an 8-hour training course." I told him I would not say I did if I didn't and he said: "You are going to sign a paper that says you did so you can't deny it." I said, " Oh, not I'm not." Then he said we would get to that later. So we start talking and he has me signing papers. He then puts one in front of me that says they will be taking money from my check, it was a small amount, $25 and change I think. I said I wasn't told that any money would be taken from my check. He said, "That's nothing, we are going to take $75 also," and started explaining what it would be taken out for. He then said for me to sign it now or we are done. I said "Then we are done. Sorry for wasting your time." It seems to me that working in security it would be important to actually take the class not just sign a paper saying you did and being expected to lie about it. It would have also been nice to have been told about the money they would be taking from my check during the interview process so I could have decided if I wanted to do that rather than being told "sign it now or we are done". I would not recommend this company to anyone.
Being told to lie about training
