Hiring A Bank Teller*
I had mixed feelings about the exercise we went over in class about the disabled woman applying for the job as a bank teller. The background of this story was one I was very familiar with; I had a part-time job my freshman year as a bank teller at the First Miami Credit Union, at the time one of only eight entirely student run credit unions in the country. The job of a bank teller is one that requires above all other things, trust and communication skills, two qualities that Anna clearly possessed. However, I feel it is important to note that Dave was trying to hire an employee for a specific job, one that required lots of movement. In this light I feel that Dave is still at fault, but rather for the unspecific advertisement. While Anna has the skills and confidence required for the job of being a teller, she doesn’t fulfill the mobility requirement of the job that Dave is hiring for; this is a difficult scenario, I think honesty from the start would have saved the awkwardness.
