Careerbuilder Smoke Screen

Dumpster fires produce a lot of smoke, but none produce the amount of smoke that CareerBuilder's dumpster fire produces month-after-month.

This week, the boys discuss:

- 300M reasons to keep hating CareerBuilder

- The Great Rehire?

- Then we pullback the covers on a crappy Glassdoor wannabe

- Target gets it's diversity on

- and give Indeed a little love for its latest initiative.

This episode is going to hit the spot with Taco Bell wine and chocolate-covered Whoppers! Mmm, life is good.

Joel (2m 25s):

Big 10 football is back.

Chad (2m 25s):

Yes, baby. It's back!

Joel (2m 27s):

So the pushback is they won't be playing til October and my response is yeah so they're not playing Alaska state and Utah tech like everybody else they'll start with, you know, the Penn State's and the Wisconsins and the Michigan. So I'm pretty happy about it. I don't think they're going to miss a beat.

Chad (2m 50s):

They're not going to get the warm up games, but neither did the NFL in last weekend. We, I mean the NFL looked good! So hopefully these Guys will be fresh. Ready. They won't have to play these little bitty teams and they can just get out there and knock it out of the park.

Joel (3m 6s):

My cat's going insane. Okay. Alright. Shout Outs!

Chad (3m 11s):

Yes! Ed from Philly, baby. He sent me a message. He said, ah, got the first Chad and Cheese text today. Big news out from Jobvites, also, I must have something wrong with me. If I'm getting more Chad and Cheese in a different channel. No Ed, you're not my friend because you can never have enough Chad and Cheese. And that being said, text C C to (833) 799-0321 and get all the goodies!

Joel (3m 43s):

The good vibrations in your pocket everybody. Yeah. Yeah. Ed, needs some mental health apps.

Chad (3m 47s):

He's team Chad.

Joel (3m 49s):

He is team Chad. Shout out to Heath Neville. Heath was a high school classmate of mine who went through a COVID nightmare. Oh, I just wanted to remind people. This shit is real. Heath was basically in quarantine for 46 days. Homie lost 40 pounds in the process and thought he was going to die several times over. So kids, take Heath's story to heart - COVID is a fucked up disease virus.

Joel (4m 22s):

Don't get it. Protect yourself, mask up. I thought it was worth talking about in our Shout Outs.

Chad (4m 25s):

Yes. Mask up people. Steven Rothberg asked me, I'm going to go back to the whole texting conversation. He asked me if he joined and he got the text alerts, what would he get? And Steven, here's a little, here's a little piece, buddy. So here's a text that I actually sent out yesterday. So remember the ultimate Kronos group, the UKG they sent out an email, went out earlier this month, informing clients that UKG would be blocking web scrapers.

Chad (4m 55s):

That didn't last for long kids cause all hell rained down and those spider blocking measures were retracted. Apparently UKG didn't realize clients use scraping services to facilitate job postings and provide compliance. It's amazing how disconnected a core provider as big as UKG is they did not understand that their clients, I mean in massive scale, use this technology.

Chad (5m 29s):

I mean, this is, this is shit. We talked about 15 years ago and it's still not rectified today because we've got idiots at the helm.

Joel (5m 39s):

And speaking of of 15 years ago, Steven pull out your Razor text CC to (833) 799-0321 to get updates just like that one. And I'm going to give a shout out to Cindy Gallop.

Chad (5m 53s):

Oh yeah.

Joel (5m 53s):

Cindy Gallop part two aired this, this week of our two part series with her. She's a bad ass. She embarrassed me. It's all good. Don't forget to listen to that one, if you haven't already. Cindy Gallop thanks for joining us.

Chad (6m 9s):

So I'd like to also say texts powered by Emissary

Joel (6m 13s):


Chad (6m 15s):

Big SHOUT Out to LaTalle Sherman. She is Head of Experience Design at PageUp. She just found out about the Chad and Ceese podcast and she loves it! And we love you LaTalle so now let's start pushing Chad and Cheese on everyone you know. Just tell them to subscribe wherever they listen. It's pretty easy. And also Alan Title. He's a new listener.

Joel (6m 37s):

Yep. Shout Out to Michael Mann. This was also a text update and a shred. I believe that went out this week. Michael Mann, you might remember from My Payroll, HR, My HR Payroll, whatever that was basically took a hundred million dollars shut down the company and left a lot of people stranded without paychecks. Well, it it's time to pay the Piper Michael Mann and he was arrested. It looks like he's going to spend some time in the pokey.

Chad (7m 6s):

30 years!

Joel (7m 7s):

It also looks like he's going to have to, to pay back some of the money that companies lost and people lost in this little scam that he had. So Michael have fun, man. I hope you meet some nice friends there in Alcatraz or wherever you're going,

Chad (7m 22s):

My Payroll and my HR Payroll or something like that. I can't remember.

Joel (7m 25s):

One of those three, six sequences of those three words. My payroll, HR, my HR, payroll, HR, my payroll, whatever.

Chad (7m 33s):

So as for Joel Cheesman, Taco Bell has a new house. It's a Jalapeño Noir and it's in Canada. So a tweet from Taco Bell, the luxurious toasted cheesy chalupas about to meet it's bougie best bud Bon Jour Jalapeño Noir are available in Canada for $25 Canadian. That means 25 cents U.S. When you finally get a chance to go back to Christine's Homeland, you can get a Chalupa and you can get some Jalapeño Noir.

Joel (8m 11s):

Yeah. Cause you know, who's borders closed right now? Canada, Yeah, not getting any of that Jalapeño Noir, although shipping could be an issue or an option I'll, I'll get with my inlaws and see if they can ship me some Jalapeño Noir, on the down low. Shout Out to Dan Finnegan, fan of the show, friend of the show, interviewed him a few times, formerly JobVite CEO, Hot Jobs, quite an icon in the industry.

Joel (8m 41s):

He joined Bolster and joined her last week in terms of board of advisors, I believe. And Bolster, you'll remember you called them bullshit I think last week for being Uber for executive. So we, we may need to get somebody from that company on the show to explain what the hell is going on cause if Dan's behind it, they might be aight.

Chad (9m 1s):

Big shoutout to Brendan McComber over at Pandalogic for tagging us, he was looking for an organic bump on LinkedIn this week. And I've heard a bunch of people bitching about being tagged in the socials. And, and personally, I don't know about you, personally, I don't mind as long as it's relevant content. Now, if it's not relevant content, you're going to get smack. But if it's relevant stuff, then I dig it. What about you?

Joel (9m 28s):

I don't mind the tag if it's relevant. I don't love getting alerted every time somebody comments or shares, the alert. So that's probably on me to sort of set my alert system, to not tell me when, you know, somebody comments on that post. But as a rule tagging is fine. I'm sure we do it quite a bit with our show, in terms of who we talk about. And, and who's been, who's been in Shout Outs could probably do that.

Chad (9m 59s):

Of course, shat will people have got, they got to know that they've been on Chad and Cheese. Big Shout Out, we'll be tagging him as well to Doeke Geertsman who is the founder over at We Are Keen in the Netherlands. He's a big fan of the podcast and they just rated us that's right, the Chad and Cheese HR's most dangerous podcast as one of their top five recruitment podcasts. Have I ever said I love lists? I love, I love lamp.

Joel (10m 30s):

Such an easy ranking, such an easy ranking. Shout Out to Ty Weeks, another fan of the show and friend of the show, Intel has a new logo. Will I Am was not a part of the design in terms of how I understand it, but Tyler was very excited about the new logo shared it. And I just wanted to give him a Shout Out cause we love, we love Ty anyway. And if a new logo is why we give them a Shout Out, then what the hell Intel has a new logo!

Chad (10m 57s):

It looks boring as hell Ty.

Joel (11m 1s):

Come on, it's nice and flat and blu
