No Background Check Needed: Applicant Admits to Sexual Molestation in Job Interview
July 19, 2012
Cody Slaughter might have said a little too much at his interview for a position with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection when he openly admitted to sexually molesting a 2 year old girl when he was 14 years old as well as animals. I’m guessing the interview all went downhill from there.
Before I start being a wise-donkey, I want to say that sexual molestation is no laughing matter and the comments I share below are in no way intended to make light of the situation.
That said, if all applicants were as truthful as Slaughter, there wouldn’t be a need for employee background checks or background screening companies for that matter. Unfortunately, we live in a world where that just isn’t the norm. There must have been something about Slaughter’s experience and qualifications that got him an interview. Clearly, he looked good on paper. At least we’ll give him a big A+ for honesty. Let’s also give U.S. Customs and Border Protection props for taking this information to the proper authorities. If only Penn State University did the same thing.
