You go to a company and you’ve gone through the interview.
The person who interviewed you likes you.
And your hiring manager is always smiling at you and saying, boisterously, “Welcome to the team!”
So what’s the next step?
Logically, you go through a medical checkup.
HR: Don’t worry, it’s nothing special. It’s just to certify that you’re fit for the company.
Worried: And if I don’t pass?
HR: So far, we’ve not had anybody who fails. I guess if you do fail, you’re probably going to die. Eh he he, just kidding. Don’t worry about it.
*Three days later*
HR: Sorry, you’ve failed the medical examination.
Worried: WTH?! Am I going to die?!
*Kdrama slow-mo ending, credits roll, see you next week*
Now, you’re probably wondering what story am I pulling out of
my ass the thin air this time, but I assure you, this is no story.
It’s something that allegedly happened.
Introducing Miss A (Not The Girl Group)
Facebook user Miss A took to Facebook to share about her experience.
She claimed that a company suddenly took away a job offer for her because they found out about her pregnancy.
So here’s how the story goes:
She applied for a position and got invited to the company for an interview. After the interview, the company told her that they’re going to make her an offer.
So they got her into the office and got her to sign the contract. Unfortunately, the head of HR and the managing director of the company were on leave.
They decide to get her to go for a mandatory checkup first while waiting for the big heads to be back.
And so she went.
