PSA: Please do not apply for any jobs at wiredtalent.com - really poor

HR practices, as evidenced by this snippet from a tech support help wanted ad on craigslist.org:

Pre-Employment Requirements
o 7-Year Comprehensive Background Check Required and Credit Check Required. DO NOT Apply unless you can pass both a criminal check and a credit check (i.e. your credit is free from current collection accounts)

*******************

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/tch/3047605795.html

I emailed to tell them they are insane with their credit check B.S. and that I was going to trash their rep as an employer wherever and whenever I could.

Thanks

ETA: Got an email auto-response saying they were reviewing my resume. Ugh and double-ugh

3. they're a temp/placement agency

they are simply meeting the requests of their customers or they have agreed to provided people who have been checked. the credit check thing is a bit of BS but the background check is entirely common. ever try to work for the federal gov't? try to work on the IRS network without a background check...

4. Maids at Vegas hotels get credit checked

Theres no top-secret, high-level security involved. They think poor people are more likely to steal.

5. Understand about the criminal background check. My beef is

 

with the credit check, especially as the economy has been so wretched that a lot of otherwise excellent people may have dings on their record.

Sorry, should have made that clearer in my OP.

7. no problem, mate

i don't like the credit check bit either. personally, i want someone working for me with slightly bad credit. why? i bet they will work hard to clear up any payment/time issues and stick around. now, someone with shite credit? well, maybe that means they don't care. honestly, i think i can tell in an interview process if you're likely to steal from me...
