[QUOTE=CLCNY20]Oh, I believe it. I was laid off from a job when a racist ass Irish guy (and I'm talking about was brought OVER from Ireland to take the position as new CEO) took over--he had no plausible reason either, just made ish up, and everyone knew he was talking out his arse, but there was nothing they could do about it. He didn't even have the balls to tell me so himself, he had this old man in his 60's tell me, it was a joke.
Bottomline, I was the only black face there, and he wanted his little White utopia; if he couldn't have that, the furthest he was willing to go was Asian or White-looking Hispanic.
Before I left, whenever anyone from the Ireland office would come over for a visit--the females were very sweet , friendly, and accepting, but the males treated me like I was some sort of abomination...to be honest, they only treated the only blonde in the office like solid gold. They were very very rude.
The only women working in their office overseas had red hair or blonde, and were all blue-eyed. I'm pretty sure the thought of hiring anything other than that made them faint.
I wouldn't visit Ireland if I won a round trip ticket, with all expenses paid. F*ck them all.
I despise the Irish. The number one Cellphne service provider is Irish. I know too many first hand experiences about working with them from customer care - to dealers - to HR mgt- to account -to lawyers to the lady who was in the trenches with the CEO when they started up. Its a serious culture clash (every Jamaican i know always talks abt the first time they heard some serious curse words at works instant heart failure lolol) but they gen have horrible hr practices fire and hire at will, bring in the most incompetent clowns from ireland while the Jamaican have to do all the work and are racist loud jerks and have this country by the balls. eff Digicel!
Not to mention when they folks would come to my gym cause they had a corp. account OP: so wait i thought it was sunshine and roses in the other side of the world
