Potential Employers & Recruiters Requesting Personal Information Way Too Soon

When searching for jobs, during the application phase, even before being contacted for an interview, I have had potential employers and recruiters request personal information such as my full Social Security number, my full birth date, my home address and other personal information. Over the past several years this is happening a lot more frequently with recruiters and human resource departments requesting this information and often times, a web page for applying for a job requesting this information. I politely decline because I refuse to give out this information when the employer has no right to this information until you are actually hired. I get mixed reactions from the employers and recruiters, from surprise to telling me that they cannot move forward with my application without the information. Is this happening to anyone else? How do you handle this situation?

Abuse in the Workplace?

So I got the job I am at three months ago, I love my co workers and my two managers but the store manager is terrible. He calls his coworkers idiots for not reading his mind basically. We all do things according to the rules and do work as fast as we can. I have heard him yell at so much customers and co workers, making them cry and even leave it is that bad. He has also said certain slurrs to me and others related to the R word. I have tried talking to my manager and nothing is helping, I am trying to find a new job at the moment to get out of it but its going slow at the moment. I have even tried calling corporate bc I cannot find an hr number in the workplace or on the site. What should I do? Am I in the wrong?

Signing a letter of acceptance for a job?

I was finally offered a job and the h.r. person faxed me a letter of acceptance to sign. I signed it and was sent a copy of their 50 page handbook and rules, along with a consent form for a background check and drug test. After I signed the letter, took the drug test, and consented to a background check; which all came back good, I was emailed and told to start July 5th.

I am thrilled, because I have been out of work forever, as it seems; and was beginning to lose hope! That was yesterday, but then this morning, another company called me and scheduled me for an interview that will be at 4pm today; eastern standard time. This job pays almost 2 bucks more, and I think I will like it better, but I have only interviewed over the phone with them, and that was Monday, and pretty much the same day, they emailed me back to come in for a second interview, which will be in person!

I have applied to them several times over the course of 2 years and to finally get a callback, I am ecstatic!

I am taking it that 2 interviews means a good sign, and if I am offered a job, how should I let the original company know my decision, but in a tactful way? I don't want to burn bridges, because I actually applied last to this job a few months ago;, but at the time, only second shift was open & I need 3rd. The h.r. person kept my record on file and sure enough, when night shift opened, I was one of the first people called.

I was done a big favor, because normally after 3 months, I would have had to reapply and go through the whole process again, I was able to skip that all that, and go straight for an interview with the hiring managers and take a tour.

I feel like a favor was done for me and I don't want to seem ungrateful to the h.r person or the company, but at the end of the day, I stand to make a lot more money at the other company and enough where I can get some things done that I have not been able to for me and my kids.

I am divorced with 5 kids to raise on my own and although I think both jobs will be good for me, I want to take the one that pays more.

Follow up on Fingerprint Hell

It has been a few months that I have been in limbo because of the state not releasing my ID. But I finally received a call to go in Friday to redo all of my HR paperwork and I go the following week to finish training. Finally! And I still do not know the reasons that the state did this to me. I wish I could find out the reasons for all of this but its the state and they do not like to give information out I have discovered. Thankfully the company stayed on top of jt and fought for me, to get me back to work. It is so nice to be appreciated. I know a;lot had to do with my test scores and conduct when I was there from what management told me. And I stayed positive when I talked to them or about them.

Recruiting & Dispatch manager

As I have been out of work since Sept 2016, I've been trying on a daily basis to find a position in my field of recruiting for staffing agencies. In every imaginable way,I've been looking, but so far no luck. I've also, on a daily basis looked in other fields, but that hasn't worked out as well. I have a real passion and love for recruiting in the light industrial field because more than not, you are helping non skilled people find work and those that are having a hard time find work for many reasons. Students, people with criminal records, those looking for a 2nd job, etc,etc. It is quite a rewarding feeling when you can help someone get back on their feet and find employment. I still have that emence passion. It is so frustrating not being able to find any sort of employment , let alone in recruiting. I guess 18 years experience doesn't count for much. I'm not giving up and I know NYC is a tough market, but where does a 57 year old go to get help in returning to his passion, his field?

16 years with Human Resources Experience and 2 1/2 years unemployed

I can not understand why with 16 years of human resources experience I can not land a job. I tried applying for part time clerical, clerk typist jobs even for clerical in our school district and no response. This coming August will be 3yrs of being unemployed my job was eliminated and the company eventually was taken over. This is depressing and scary I moved from Newjersey to florida and I am having the same luck. I only want an opportunity somewhere. I have no college degree I only have work experience. The pay in florida is not great....but I am willing to build from the ground up. I am 52 years but I dont look the age but they will never know that because they dont even call for an interview I applied for over 10 position in the school. No response I cant figure it out.
