I have come to a conclusion that Disney and all of its subsidiaries are currently not hiring H1B candidates or candidates with a visa in USA. It only prefers Green Card holders and US Citizens. What is up with that?
- Amazon pupper41Companies aren't required to hire H1B's. Beggars can't be choosers. You should feel lucky that you can even find a job as an H1B
- Amazon / Eng BeffJezos!moreBeggers? Lol. We earn more, save more, and are smarter at STEM than the usual American. All the big companies that require software engineering as a core skill for business freely take H1Bs. Why do you think they do that? Also, check the CEOs of the Big 4, all immigrants. Don't be offensive brother. Peace.Apr 3 0
- ADP kuzU71I'm sorry, but if there are US candidates, why would they not hire them?
- Microsoft / Eng wassaupmoreI am an immigrant but this should be the default. H1B has been badly abused to hire people willing to sacrifice their personal life and devote themselves into work. This is destroying Bay area and tech industry in general, not to mention interview is turning into like college entrance exam in Asian countries. It is totally disregarding communication and other more important traits. This will fundamentally destroy the industry for the long term. If anything, Asian companies will do better at this and US companies will lose the edge unless this trend of morphing into Asian companies stops. If Asian model was better, I would say go for it but if that were true, Asian companies should have been doing a far better job, right? I have yet to see any major tech companies who can sell outside of their own countries though. But that is up until now. Before it is too late, US companies should hire Americans first then hire foreign workers if there still is shortage.
- it is illegal to discriminate based on citizenship. except if you need an h1b
- The attempt to replace US workers with H1B went wrong , and then to avoid "media shame" they stopped H1B hiring completely.. The laid off US workers were not brought back , all the jobs were outsourced to contractors and others shipped to Asia offices..
- Capital One / Eng zidanemoreTo be honest we're having a lot of trouble to hire people after our company stopped h1b recruitment, what's happening is if you don't find good qualified people here and still want your work done and can't recruit on visa what do you think organizations do... They outsource to get those jobs done!
- As a hiring manager, the H1B process is now a pain. Several years ago, you just hired any applicant that was qualified and if they needed an H1B, you did it. Now with many more concerns about immigration and jobs, things have changed.
Now, HR at many companies are being a lot more strict about making certain that there are no qualified candidates other than someone needing the H1B. And even then, they are hesitant to do so as other items for compliance - like publicly posting the sponsorship packet somewhere in the office, which include a salary range for all folks with that title in the company, which for Disney might not be a big deal, but for smaller companies means everyone then knows everyone elses salaries. And of course there is the expenses. In the last year I had someone we sponsored leave after 6 months to go back to the country they came from (homesick), and someone else that was hired and all the H1B paperwork forced through then not show up on their first day.
All in all, as a hiring manager, it is generally not worth the effort unless someone is absolutely amazing and I really can't find anyone else. - And I think that is really what is supposed to be the point of an H1B anyway.
- One of the conditions that you have to certify is that:
"Provide working conditions for nonimmigrants which will not adversely affect the working conditions of
workers similarly employed."
and another is:
": Pay nonimmigrants at least the local prevailing wage or the employer’s actual wage, whichever is higher, and pay for non-
productive time. Offer nonimmigrants benefits on the same basis as offered to U.S. workers"
What has been expressed to me by our inside counsel is that to meet these criteria, the person really needs to be exceptional. The idea being that inevitably at some company a non-immigrant who feels harmed by the employment of an H1B will literally make a federal case of it, and the current administration will make an example of that company (in court and on Twitter). So to cross t's and dot i's, any H1B needs to stand up to any potential scrutiny from nationalist groups and the fed.
