Alright, I'm kinda pissed. And when I say that I mostly mean "someone please hand me a loaded shotgun and a list of certain peoples names and current locations"
So my brother was going to work for GameStop as someone who fixes everyone's PS3s. Good idea, right? He'd been looking for steady work for a while and the whole family was excited. We have a family friend that was determined to get him a job 'cause he already works for the company.
So my brother went on the interview, the guy said he would recommend him for hire, and he was happy. He was getting his background check done and everything seemed to be going perfectly well.
Until the fucking drug test. Now my brother isn't a druggie, but he does take some prescription medication that would cause him to come up positive on a drug test. He asked the testing people if they needed a copy of it or if the doctor's office needed to give a letter or something to say that HE WOULD PROBABLY FAIL. Well apparently due to Texas law you can't preemptively do anything about that, so he decided to just deal with it after the fact.
So, low and behold, he gets a letter that says he failed. Um, yeah, we fucking KNEW that was going to happen. ON THE GOD DAMN LETTER it says if you take prescription to contact the GameStop HR department and get it taken care of. So he tired to call FOREVER and no one got back to him. So after a couple of days we called the family friend and asked him to look into it for us.
Finally someone gets back to him and says "Zero Tolerance Policy. Sorry."
ZERO FUCKING TOLERANCE POLICY?!
I understand this shit for people who actually take drugs but you're going to penalize these people who need these? Really?!?!
JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE NEEDS MEDICATION FOR SOME SHIT DOES NOT MEAN THEY WON'T WORK HARD OR DON'T DESERVE THE JOB!!
You know what? This could have probably been avoided if Texas would have just let him EXPLAIN before all of this. Seriously. And why put something like that on the letter you send someone as an explanation if you aren't willing to listen to them?
WTF GAMESTOP! I LOVED YOU AND YOU JUST STABBED MY BROTHER IN THE FUCKING BACK!
I am so pissed right now. I can't even imagine what my brother is feeling.
