Sorry, this isn’t a story about aliens (although that would explain all those spaces between ears where the brains SHOULD be around here).
This is a story about proof that we’re not the only place where you’ll see some refreshing honesty, rather than that nasty plastic sweetness of stale kool aid the Department Of Tourism wants you to drink when they tell you “It’s more fun in the Philippines!” In other words, real people with real truths about Filipinos, and it’s not just us this time!
Ok, enough prattling. On to the good stuff.
So I’m looking at Craigslist for work. Yes, I know it’s Craigslist, and it’s in Manila. Put together, those two words alone give a lovely image of which Filipinos will undercut everyone else to make $1 USD for a job that should be paying $100 USD. Filipinos just do it to themselves.
But I need to make money. You can’t live here for free, and even going outside costs money here in Manila. As I’m browsing around the writing jobs, I suddenly stop and start laughing rather maniacally. In a sea of kissing Filipino ass to convince them to work for the cheap, I come across this diamond in the rough:
Writers bloggers Permanent job for the next 10 years!!
START TOMORROW! (virtual)
compensation: depends on experience
Are you tired of working alongside fellow Filipinos that: 1. Don’t honor their word,
2. Are not responsible,
3. Don’t show up for work,
4. Are immature or are backstabbing
5. Envious of you and your desire to be promoted and succeed in your job?
GUESS WHAT ME TOO! After hiring 48 Filipinos and getting screwed by them in one way or another I have come to the conclusion that 90% of the Filipino culture can not be trusted or relied upon to do what they say.With that said I am building a company in the Philippines that will grow to 50 employees in the areas of researcher, web development, telemarketing and blogging writer.IF YOU HAVE EVER: 1. Lied to an employer on ANYTHING, 2. Not shown up for work
3. Provided a false medical excuse
4. Cheated an employer by not giving 100% effort
5. Worked for another company or client at the same time that you were suppose to be working for your employer.
