Racist Interviewer

Jun 7 85 Comments

I interview with SmartThings mobile team. The manager of Mountain View mobile is racist. During interview he pulled eyes with hands and said Samsung engineers in Suwon are not good engineers. ...

This is worse interview experience I have had because I am Asian and was very offend by this man. This was happen few months ago, but still am so mad!

    Please DM me. I am at this company and suspect I know who you are talking about. That is completely inappropriate

      Based on the responses I'd say your insistence that he's lying for interaction on a platform, where it doesn't really matter, seems the more extraordinary of the two.

      What is your significant evidence that he is lying? (Spoiler alert: you have none)

      So if it happened to you, you’d have no way to substantiate it either

      @Smarthings, whatever route it goes, I hope you and op can figure it out. If there is something, best of luck.

      Talentless, you just demonstrated you don’t know how the burden of evidence works when someone makes a claim.

      This entire conversation is just confirming my theory. Mass victimhood complex response via a well constructed stimuli

      This is an anonymous forum. “Burden of evidence” is irrelevant

      Where? Have I claimed he is telling the truth? No. I just called you out on your bullshit and stated that it should be brought forward and investigated. In the real world, not on Blind.

      If that was the point you were trying to make I'd have no problem with it. Allegations like this after all aren't a light matter and can be career ending.

      But it wasn't. Instead you were just being a pedantic asshole over and over again to a person that owes you nothing. Ironically, likely to feel smart and to get interaction. Why else would you have commented on the majority of the responses to op here? Something about Occam's razor? 🤣

      Listen I was the one calling for evidence and everyone jumped all over me like I’ve committed some sort of thought crime. This is what people talk about when they refer to left-wing angry mobs

      Nobody has said anything remotely partisan though.

      You were given the closest thing somebody could reasonably provide as evidence on an anonymous forum, somebody from the company validating that they likely know who is being discussed, and that still wasn't enough for you.

      In cases like this, the only thing to do is lend support and hope it gets brought up outside of this forum. Only from there can it be legitimately investigated. An attempt to discredit someone you don't know for no real discernible reason could make that process less likely to happen.

      You first called OP a liar and then demanded evidence when there’s little chance to find any in a situation like this. You’re the only one bringing political ideologies into the conversation. You may see it as a left-wing angry mob, but an alternative view is that you antagonized and now want to feel victimized after getting called out.

      I don’t mean to attack you, so apologize if it feels that way

    People get offended for every small things. People make fun of Indians all the time, do they cry all the time? Just laugh it off man. Would recommend watching Russel Peters show.

      Why its ok to do this in interview
      Jun 7
    • PayPal sarcasm
      It's not okay. Maybe he was testing your patience and reaction. I dunno much. But, getting offended for such things won't help you in a longer run.

      Nope, OP has the right to feel offended, and let it be known aggressively. Grow a pair paypal

      He has a right. I'm not denying it. He can report it, and should do it. But one cannot stuck in the life because of this incident. You gotta move on.

      No, this isn’t about laughing it off. Russell Peters’ jokes are about sharing a common experience, and are (were) tastefully executed. This is about racial power dynamics. So if you want to be respected as a people then you need to step up and show racists that there are consequences to their actions

      Wow. Can’t believe this guy doesn’t understand the difference between stand-up comedy and workplace power dynamics. How long before you grow up. PS-Indians cry about it all the time as well.

      Yep, I am Indian, always looking out for something to be offended about.

      Jokes aside, if this story is true, the interviewer should be reported.

      Everyone on this thread liking it and commenting ask yourself , how easy would this be as a troll post? Literally zero evidence zero effort.He’s grabbing you by your emotional balls.

      You can still report it
      Jun 7
    • Microsoft itsRaw
      Absolutely. Especially if he was doing the squinty eyes right in front of him, and my dude right here is an Asian. I wouldn’t have let it slide myself. (Not Asian, but still)

    • Lyft ihb47
      If this is real, and there’s evidence that’s the obvious thing to do. No reason to think that’s the case here though

    Interviewer: *sings the n-word to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while pulling his eyelids back*
    White dudes on Blind: “idk sounds like you’re being overly sensitive. Maybe you’re the real racist?”

    • Lyft ihb47
      Why are you so sure that this is a factual claim? It confirms to something you want to hear so you’re so inclined to jump on it.
      Jun 7
    • Interloc Solutions / Eng talentless
      Why are you so certain that it isn't? Why do you care?
      Jun 7
    • Lyft ihb47
      Because I’m fascinated by the mass psychology. I’ve seen this pattern play out on a number of topics repeatedly on blind. Elicits a group victimhood response Without anyone requiring any evidence to support the claim

      “Well do you have any evidence?”
      Yes, Here’s a voice recording

    You should at least complain to HR of that company. You may also want to complain to the department of labor.
