Indeed's FUBAR UX

"Indeed gives zero fucks about employers!!! - Yes, that's a quote from an employer... and No you're not surprised.

This week's podcast, of course. What's more?

As always, your favorite podcast is made possible by Jobvite, JobAdX, and Sovren.

INTRO (1s):

Hide your kids! Lock the doors! You're listening to HR’s most dangerous podcast. Chad Sowash and Joel Cheeseman are here to punch the recruiting industry, right where it hurts! Complete with breaking news, brash opinion and loads of snark, buckle up boys and girls, it's time for the Chad and Cheese podcast.

Joel (21s):

Oh yeah. The least you're not in Texas, unless you are in Texas. In which case? Ouch. Welcome to the Chad and Cheese podcast. Everybody. I'm your cohost, Joel "blame it on the windmills" Cheeseman

Chad (37s):

and I'm Chad "rolling blackout" Sowash.

Joel (41s):

And on this week, show Australia tells Google that's not a knife, that's a knife. Chad gets a chubby listening to Spotify and indeed proves once again that it quote "gives zero fucks about employers" end quote, we'll be right back after I finished shoveling my God damn driveway.

Sovren (1m 3s):

You already know that Sovren makes the world's best resume CV parser, but did you know that Sovren also makes the world's best AI matching engine? Only Sovren's AI matching engine goes beyond the buzzwords. With Sovren you control how the engine thinks with every match the Sovren engine tells you what matched and exactly how each matching document was scored. And if you don't agree with the way it's scored the matches, you can simply move some sliders to tell it, to score the matches your way. No other engine on earth gives you that combination of insight and control. With Sovren, matching isn't some frustrating "black box, trust us, it's magic, one shot deal" like all the others. No, with Sovren, matching is completely understandable, completely controllable, and actually kind of fun. Sovren ~ software so human you'll want to take it to dinner.

Joel (2m 2s):

Good times.

Chad (2m 7s):

Welcome to America kids. The land of a rolling blackouts. What the fuck is going on, dude?

Joel (2m 13s):

Well, dude, I was sipping margaritas and hunting Marlin in the keys this early this week. So I got to leave that and come home to like a foot of snow. So I'm a little bit salty and not from the margaritas I had.

Chad (2m 27s):

Yeah, I think people in Texas are probably a little bit more pissed than you are right now.

Joel (2m 34s):

It's funny. You mentioned that because my father lives in Texas and he's still in route to get back to Texas. He lives in Austin. He has to go to Houston, which I guess apparently is thawing out quicker than the rest of the state. And then he has to go home. I'm not sure when he'll get to go home, how the roads are and whatnot. And then he gets to find out if his pipes burst or not, he's still a cold weather guy at heart, but he may or may not have electricity and keep in mind. He's 81. So yeah, life is going to be real fun for him this weekend.

Chad (3m 3s):

I'd be fucking pissed if I were a Texan, because we're talking about a state that is number eight in the GDP, worldwide. Prides themselves in being the quote/unquote "Energy state" and all forms of Texas Energy failed. I mean, I, I don't know where they fuck where'd they buy those windmills that they buy them from fucking Mattel. I mean, I don't get it here in good old Hicksville of Indiana. We have fields of windmills and those motherfuckers are cranking out megawatts. They've been doing it for years. I just can't get it. And again, being a Texan and obviously they don't pay taxes.

Chad (3m 47s):

They, obviously want, they want to have low energy costs. And I think overall it's like, guys, you gotta pay for something somehow. Fuck.

Joel (4m 1s):

And I know that we talk football on the show quite a bit. And football season is over. And our international listeners hate when we talk football, football fans will remember when the Superbowl was in Dallas a few years ago and they had this same shit happen. So not only do they say, you know, fuck it. They don't apparently learn from the past and try to fix shit. But there's another winter front coming this weekend. It's not going to get much easier anytime sooner for Texas. Shout out Texas. We love you man. No matter what, dude, are you ready for this?

Chad (4m 32s):


Joel (4m 32s):

Okay. We love Torchy's speaking of Texas. I mean love Torchy's right. So I'm talking about, we're talking about Torchy's with my sister who lives in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Sorry to get so Metta everybody, but okay. So we talked Torchy's and my sister goes, Oh, I think there's a, Torchy's moving into Jeffersonville, which is a small town of about 50,000 people. It's near Louisville, Kentucky, which is not a big city either. And it's a long way from Texas. And I'm like, get the fuck outta here. This is not, it's a different Torchy's or it's tortures or you're, you're getting it wrong. So I go to Torchy's website, I go to locations and I search Indiana. And Holy fuck.

Joel (5m 13s):

There's a Torchy's Tacos moving to Jeffersonville. So I, my friend will be tracking down to Jeff at least three or four, six, 10 times a year just to get some Torchy's Tacos. And I'm fingers crossed that they're coming to Indianapolis soon.

Chad (5m 30s):

There's just something about sitting in Austin and having a Torchy's Tacos. I think it's going to be entirely different being in Jeff, having a Torchy's Tacos.

Joel (5m 42s):

It's just a different kind of trashy. It's a different kind of trashy when you get the extra sauce on that taco.

Chad (5m 48s):

Yeah. Okay. I will take that.

Joel (5m 50s):

It's way better than the Taco Bell on taste. I'm telling you that, right?

Chad (5m 54s):

God, I fucking hope so. Shout out to Daniel Fellows from get optimal. Who sent me some French gin.

Joel (6m 2s):

And sent me nothing by the way. Thanks Dan. .

Chad (6m 5s):

You don't deserve anything.

Joel (6m 7s):

I'm not worthy.

Chad (6m 8s):

Here's the thing though. I got sent the gin. Julie confiscated the gin. All I have now is I can taste her gin when she's having cocktails, because it's obviously fucking good. So yeah. Thanks. Thanks Daniel. If you could send another package, that'd be great. Thank you.

Joel (6m 25s):

Are you a gin guy now? I'm a little confused. Or do they sell, do not sell whiskey in his part of England?

Chad (6m 32s):

Daniel is a different kind of guy. He doesn't just want to give you what you want. He wants to give you something that is outside of your comfort zone. And no, I'm not a gin guy. And he's like, you will love this gin and Daniel, I bet I would love that gin, if my wife didn't steal it.

Joel (6m 50s):

Speaking of women who like liquor, shout out to my sister who got remarried on Valentine's Day. How romantic is that? She did tie the knot. I know I mentioned I was going, but it, it did. She closed the deal. It was done. And she is soon to be Holly Bricker.

Chad (7m 8s):

Very nice.
