CVS is watching your social media sites
|Corporate douche bags have to validate their jobs now by firing employees over petty social media postings.|
On a more serious note...
I just had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine who works for corporate so I figured I'd pass this on to everyone. CVS is currently and actively snooping on employees social media accounts and firing anyone with questionable content.
By questionable content, I don't mean pictures of you and your buddies doing crazy things after work. But rather people posting pictures while they are obviously on the clock and should be working or making negative comments about the company on media sites that clearly belong to employees.
From what I understand there was a big corporate meeting about it and that spawned the "social media agreement" employees had to agree to. However NOW they are acting on it with LP folks scouring the media sites for stuff to fire you with, which they will when they confront you with the evidence.Whether it was ranting on Twitter about how you hate the job, using a dozen hashtags to emphasize it. Or even posting pictures on Facebook where people are clearly doing things they should be not while at work.
While I don't condone stupidity such as stealing stuff and posting evidence on your Facebook. People now are getting canned left and right for petty nonsense that breaks the "social media" rules. For instance, a store manager getting fired after 11 years for simply Tweeting "my job sucks today" or a shift supervisor of 6 years getting the boot after posting a selfie in the office and putting it online. Total bullshit.
So as a common sense reminder, lock your social sites and hide your tracks. Unless you are trying to get fired, then keep up the good work. However, for the ones that need the job...you've been warned.
We all know CVS sucks, and it IS your right to express that. Do so discreetly and be safe, my friends!
