Scams are not a new concept for humanity. The defamation caused by such cases is hard to repair by the companies—an ex-employee shares one such case in Oliver Garden.

Many colleges who claim merit-based selection are spoiled, too.

But this isn't the case in the Toyota (America). Shared by the contributor, everything was disposed of without any environmental concern. Car paints went straight to the dumpster. Radiator fluid went down straight to the drain. Although the headquarters provided clear instructions on disposing of all these “fatal materials,” the boss didn't pay attention.

Security is the priority, a slogan that is very famous across companies. For this, they allot a quite handsome portion of their budget. Installing up-to-date cameras and trained security guards are some standard measures. But often, what we see is false. Another user added that while working at Home Depot, the security cameras in their organizations don't work. The security of employees and customers is at stake, but management doesn't heed it.

Although higher authorities and customers appreciated his strict behavior on cleanliness, whoever got a chance to work under him never worked again.

As shared by the last user, their branch manager gave them directions to change the expiry dates of the products and use them in servings! Also, no one could question that too. Although the manager was altered, his practices questioned Subway's hiring process.
