Dear friends,
I have heard about Back doors many times earlier, but seen recently when my cousin received a call from a consultancy (quick jobs)to pay some amount and two months salary.. to get the job.. he said procedure is simple you would go thru all the rounds which are generally done, but you will get selected.. we are going to pay some amount to HR.. your joining date would be so & So.....
Are jobs sold??????? whats the solution to such problems... are the capable able to get the jobs they deserve...if jobs are diluted like this...

Dear Sari,
Corruption always existed which you may also be aware. Recruitment in lower and middle level Government Jobs, Railways people had paid bribe to get in. Before the Globalisation process in India, there had been instances of people paying bribe to get jobs in Private sector also. Nowadays we donot see it much because of the shortage of qualified manpower.

yes its hard to trust it but it is true its difficult to stop becoze its easy way to get job
i was working as an event a part time job(frm my college days)...
i used to go to an MNC (i dont want to name the company) every week ends to co ordinate for the week end drive...
i was co-ordinating for that company for more than 1 year....
one day suddenly frm no wher a person was added as a recruitment co- ordinator.. through a consultancy... he was working as IT recruiter in a consultancy(just 6 months)... after few weeks he and the Source head became thick friends... after 3 months he was hired as a permanent employee (Recruiter)... he struggles to speak in english, only hindi and kannada... i and my friends were shocked.... we were curious to know how did this happen, so we decided to dig deep in this issue.. finally we came to know that he paid nearly 1lk to the source head and the HR manager... 6 months up,now he is a senior recruiter..... (he has just 1 yr of exp in recruitment)
:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

I guess it is the man power consultancies which started the practise, may be not all but maximum out of them, they are giving assurances to the candidates for 100 % to manage the fake experience as well as Selection.
Heard & seen the facts that back door events are happening in all the B4 companies.
Previously it used to be the Concerned authorities in Govt Organisations who are corrupted, now it is Globally entered with changing colors & trends.
Im really soyry if I have hearted any one. my Idea was just to place the reasons behind the actual scene.

Dear All,
Hats off to Sari to bring this matter for discussion. When I was searching for a HR job, I got a call from a company for Interview but I didnt get selected. Same evening I got a call from a consultancy and the recruiter asked me to met him in his consultancy. When I went there I was stunned to see the person bcoz he is the person who rejects me in the interview.
After a discussion, he asked me 1 lakh or 1 month salary for the same post for the same company.... I didnt get the offer. But there are some people who doesnt know the meaning & true value of "HR".
Sry if it hurts any members

That HR is corrupt is an understatement, at least in the minds of those not in HR. Personally, I have seen not more than 10 such instances in the past 4 years. But if you just research the recruitment data, you will find lots of suspicious facts.
Shall we turn a blind eye to this phenomenon and carry on .... being corrupt?
I regret that the few of us who do not toe the line are spreading truth as rumour.

Yes, even I have come across this practice, though in government circles only. My servant's son, reasonably intelligent but poor in studies, was 'helped' by his uncle in a government office, with the proviso that if the appointment went through, he would have to pay Rs. 50,000 in instalments till the amount was finally paid. The reason for the large payment was that the major portion would be directed 'upwards'. Well, he was appointed, he has just completed paying the amount asked for, but he is doing very well and is up for promotion on his own merits.

This is the first time, however, that I have learnt that the same practice is being followed by non-government organisations and that too, so blatantly (openly) with sub-standard candidates being appointed solely because money has been exchanged. This puts the guilty HR personnel on the same level as a low government clerical assistant!

This is a shocking state of affairs. How can we prevent this from happening, since the HR personnel concerned seem to be completely 'bindaas'.... and care nothing about quality recruitment, with the consequence that the organisation and other employees suffer with substandard officers being appointed?

Any suggestions?


The topic came up for casual discussion today with a colleague. He mentioned a big SEEPZ company. There candidates are "charged" Rs. 15000 for the interview call by the consultant on behalf of the HR. If the candidate gets selected, the consultant also parts with 33% of billing.
He also mentioned a shocking fact: our biggest client's annual picnic is financed by a recruitment company!

Hi friends,

As we know our unemployment rate is very high...and corruption is at its peak. But if the HR professionals start ...favoritism or accept bribe for recruiting...things will go wrong. HR's favoritism is not a new thing...heard a lot about it, but everything should have limits. If a HR guy behave irresponsibly, in a very short span either the investor will become bankrupted or otherwise the Investor will kick the HR out of the company.

People are the only competitive advantage in todays' border less market. Only the best products and services with the best price and highest ROI will lead the market. In such a scenario being a HR Manager, if somebody recruit a useless person just by accepting bribe, both will loose their job...or the company will pull its shutters in nearest future

Professionals should have integrity...

enjoy your work and be optimistic
