Well I don't know about buying from them but after going for a job interview with 'Blinds To Go' during the 1st interview the lady asked me if I have any children. And during the second interview the second lady nonchalantly tried to make conversation and stated that 'AT MY AGE' I should think about having children. I WAS SHOCKED. The 2nd lady even asked me the exact names of other companies I've applied for as well as where my husband currently works. By far this interview with Blinds To Go with Melody Baram from Canada (1st interview) and another Brazilian lady (2nd interview) were the most horrible interview I've ever been to with complete discrimination and ILLEGAL!!! 2 days later I get the following email...here is only a partial insert:
"After a careful review of each candidate's background relative to our needs, we believe that we have several candidates who may be a better fit and are unable to move your candidacy further at this time."
I just recently graduated from school as a Home Stager and Interior Redesigner. I thought what a better place to work other than Blinds To Go as well as I thought they had a fantastic career growth program. Just before my interview, which I had arrived 20 minutes early (I drove 1.5 hours away from where I live with the last $15 of money from my bank account and when I arrived the guy that worked at Blinds to go gave me a dirty look and told me to sit in the front which I had done with the other girls. HE NEVER TOLD MY INTERVIEWER THAT I HAD ARRIVED, and then when she comes to get the 3:30 appt, I stood up and said (what about me?) She just brushed it off and said that she didn't know what happened to me. Before hand, I spoke to the other girls waiting for their interviews and one girl worked as a door to door salesman/woman for a phone company here in Canada and the other girl worked at Best Buy. HOW COULD I NOT BE A GOOD CANDIDATE (BETTER FIT) FOR THIS POSITION? The job title is for 'Decorating Consultant'...not SALESMAN (nothing against the other girls because they were polite).
I will be filing a complaint with The Canadian Human Rights Commission because this was not fair with the types of questions they asked me and how I was judged by "at my age I should be having kids"...
PEOPLE DO NOT BUY FROM THEM AND DO NOT APPLY FOR A JOB WITH BLINDS TO GO BECAUSE THEY DISCRIMINATE ACCORDING TO:
"Sex" refers to the condition of being male or female. Under section 3(2) of the Canadian Human Rights Act, discrimination related to pregnancy or child-birth is considered to be discrimination on the ground of sex.
