21 did you ever even remotely stop to think why family would help family... no I didnt think so it was not selfishness but the willingness to help your family out she needed a job her uncle had an opening it's not selfish it's called doing someone a favor so stfu

28 it's still utterly unfair isms Op deserved the job and didn't get it because of family that is called " inhalation " meaning taking an opportunity away from someone who deserved it

28 are you trying to say that the interviewer did the right thing by hiring family instead of a qualified person? maybe you should stop and think about it before you post, the only reason someone would be ignorant enough to post that is if they themselves have hired family in the past or received a job because family has hired him or her in the past...

I'm with 28 on this one, although I hope I'll explain my position a little better. It isn't wrong to hire a family member for a job. It may not even be wrong to hire a family member over a more qualified person, if you are the owner of the business in question. BUT, if you ARE NOT the owner of the business, you just have a supervisor position which involves hiring new employees, then it probably is a violation of company policy to hire a family member or friend over a more qualified person. So, what I'm getting at is that it is perferctly okay to look out for your family (and taking care of your family should be a priority in your life) as long as you aren't abusing your position at work to do so. If the "uncle" in this story owns the business or if its a small business then what he did was probably okay. If this was a major corporation or a goverment job, then he probably broke some rules.

74, exactly. She could have been just as qualified. Anyone here, whether they want to admit or not, would hire a family member over a random guy they don't know, as long as the family member was equally qualified. If she wasn't as qualified, then yeah, the Uncle is an asshole.

You can't be with 28 because what he is in favor of, and what is happening in this situation, is nepotism. Oh, yeah, and I'm pretty sure its illegal. OP, bring it up with them and if they cant prove she's the better candidate, sue them.

There is logic in helping family when it is legal. If the girl is really an idiot then she is actually being detrimental to her uncle, which is NOT helping family. If he gets black marked for hiring the wrong person then his job might be in jeopardy. While there is such a thing as helping out a family member, hiring someone under-qualified for the position is putting people at risk. If it is a privately owned company then the uncle is risking someone else's family. It would be just as simple to loan her the money or see if there was a position lower in the company for her. If Op is blowing wind out his ass about losing a job he wanted and doesn't know the girl's qualifications then there is no problem with hiring a family member that you know will do a good job. In some cases you just happen to know it would be a good fit and that is that. There is nothing wrong with hiring a family member if they have the same qualifications and you can justify it. Either way, the girl is not very professional and should stop putting everything she thinks online, that could cause problems in the future.

96, in this instance, it's giving someone a job, solely because they're related. In general, it's when you're biased to favor a specific person just because you're related, are friends, etc.

That's why you only add people you know.

there is a dislike button, u have to activate it

By  Allymeme  |  3

why do you have her on facebook if you dislike her so much? I can never understand why people just put anyone on their facebook just to boost the amount of friends they have. Delete her, problem solved. She obviously isn't your friend anyway.

OP obviously dislikes her for getting hired for the job that they 1. wanted. and 2. were more qualified more. my best friend is a total moron. doesn't mean I dislike her for it. seriously you all act like you know the OP's of these FML's personally. -___-

Okay that's your best friend, in OP's case it isn't. She refers to her as the "girl I have on Facebook" which pretty much implies they're acquaintances if even that.

They are friends on Facebook, I'm assuming, because they are coworkers. Sure, when you're 18 and working at taco bell or Starbucks, you might choose not to become friends with your coworkers; when you're in a similar career - not job - with someone, you usually network with them.
