How the heck would anyone here know to what you are referring if you don't say? Why can't you write a well thought through op?

And i had a job in high school. Every day after school and weekends.

Ridiculous? Do you want a pedophile working where children are? Yes children go with mom and dad to home depot. Your ignorance is astounding.

Internal theft from Home Depot from employees is a huge problem for them, little items that cost hundreds can go missing so easily. It's a lot easier to sell stolen tools and other housewares parts than stolen clothes or blenders from other retailers. My own dad got fired from Home Depot two years for failing the drug test! Was a smart move by them.

the odds of any random person who might want to apply to be a dishwasher having access to a fax machine (or even knowing where to go to pay to use one - can you even do that anymore?) is way lower than the odds that they know how to use a computer and either have internet access or know that they can go to the library and use the internet for free.

fax machines are outmoded technology and are being used less and less these days. life goes on. progress happens. it's not always perfect. deal with it.


To me it just seems like a lot of typing to wash some damm dishes

clerical or customer service I can see but a job that does not require the use of a computer?? Now I can see how someone can turn to illegal ways of making money because for a dishwasher job you should just be able to fax a resume. You definitely didn't see ads like this in 1999.
Don't worry....after the amnesty bill passes, there won't be any of those jobs available.

Win/win!

That's what it seems to you. Its been pretty well established that what things seem to you is not actually what they really are.

To the employer its about sanitation and customer perception when they get a dirty fork. And they need to make the best choice to find people who will not spit in a customers food, or otherwise compromise health and safety.

No its not. Lets use target as an example. A target cart pusher has to know about lot and vehicle safety, customer service, and has full access to the entire property including the back stock room. Of course target is going to do a full background check and drug test.
