I'm not normally an HR tattle-tell, but fuck this shit.
I took part in an interview for a new hire/position and a followup. The followup is where shit broke...
There were two directors and multiple direct reports between various reports (not all reports in the room). It's going well up until one of the individuals decides to proclaim "my only issue with the candidate is that they are yet another white male." Between the directors, it devolves into a quick conversation about race and sex.
Luckily I was on the phone because I looked like a freak like my mouth hanging open as far as you could make it go. While on mute, I messaged another employee who replied "wtf?!?!?!?" and emailed both directors stating the individual required training for interviewing. Only one director replied... That director replied "Maybe that recommendation should go to their manager?" That's a direct quote.
Goats, I'm about to burn this shit down. I'm tired of living in a Democratic city, I never thought I'd be "that guy", but I'm going to HR tomorrow. When a company says they don't make decisions about hiring in regards to race, sex, blah, blah, blah, I expect they uphold it. Fuck this shit.
Wish me luck.
