Wells Fargo — racism in hiring
I was just hired by Wells Fargo and every thing was okay. I had to navigate a really tricky connectivity problem in the beginning, which was their fault, and as a result, I could only be trained 2 days, instead of the normal four. When I got hired, it was all over the phone and everything was going just fine. They were all apologetic saying everything would be fine. They decided to send me out into the field, and I was like: No. Let's wait a bit, finish the training as I need, and then continue however, they refused. So I went out to the field and there I met Wells Fargo in person. Suddenly everything changed. Even though I did everything as instructed at that point, they cancelled further work for me, did not review any of my work, and fired me on Friday without any excuse. There was absolutely no reason to do this. Zero. I can only come to the conclusion that the reason for this was racism. They finally discovered that I was black, I can hide this over the phone since my voice is pure white, however in real life, I what can I do? I mean, go to from saying everything is fine, I got 6 months of work guaranteed, to being fired without my work being evaluated even one time, that is total BS and racism. And get this, I am trained in the subject matter which is ISO27001. I have have spent over $10, 000 of my own personal money to get training in the area and I have over 6 years of relevant experience. My trainer has no training and is not certified in the area. I was like, should I train you???? When I was working, it was too easy for me. I knew everything I should do, since I had done it before for other companies, and I was learning how to do it specifically according to Wells Fargo requirements. However, no one, not even my training, looked over my shoulder and looked at what I was doing. Zero. They did not ask for anything and I was told I could submit everything later, on Monday, since I was over my daily 8 hour limit for work. I mean, talk about messed up. I had no means for company communication and I had to buy my own equipment for this. In any other company, I would be looked at a a good employee since I did everything without proper compensation. However, Wells Fargo--> No. I'm black, and that is all. They had everything set up to fire me once they knew I was black and I have the email evidence to back it up. They don't have the company laptop, it's still in my possession and I am looking for a good lawyer to go sue this guys. Anyone want to give me advice? Bottom line, if you are black, don't even consider Wells Fargo.
