Ann O. sent a message to Vincent Forlenza that said:
I just wanted Vince Forlenza to know that Brett Wilko at Becton Dickinson in Sandy, Utah hired 25 contract workers for a project they were guaranteed during interviews would last at least 6 months and, after purchasing 25 computers, fired the workers after 3 weeks because the project was cancelled, presumably because the IT department couldn't handle that many people in the software. Surely, a good manager would make sure it would work before dragging so many people in who lost other employment opportunities because of the project.
And to top it all off, the firing was done in a very sadistic way by calling the people in one-by-one (at an average of 5 minutes each that comes to about 2 hours) and the workers alll knew what was going on after the first person was let go. So almost every person sat there for an extended period of time dreading hearing their name called every time Shannon Englehart walked in the room in the hopes that they would be retained by the company. That seems a very odd and extended, stressful, and hopefully unintendedly sadistic way to handle the situation.
It's just a very bad story, and reflects badly on Becton Dickonson and Mr. Forlenza that either the Regulatory Manager in Sandy is so incompetent he starts a project that can't be done and lies to 20+ people about being employed for 6 months, or he's a liar and the project wasn't cancelled.?
