When I had office-computer privileges at ExJob, I somehow discovered that my [retailsoftware] login gave me unfettered access to not only the inventory program (only section I was supposed to have RWX rights to), but everything up to and including RWX for employee data (somehow I was able to view permissions on my login for the entire software suite). The last time I was able to gain access was just prior to the furlough, and at that time it had not been changed. I guess they figured that only allowing logins from that domain was security enough.

Got another email today (exactly 5 days from the last one). Whoever's doing this is persistent, I gotta give em that...

On the 0.00001% chance that it's legit... still don't open it. They shouldn't have out-sourced their HR to an African Prince.

I'd think that if it was legit, I would have heard something from ExJob's HR guy (the email I got last month would have been "would you be willing to transfer to another store?" rather than "kthxbai") and either him or the other store would have actually tried to call me.

ETA: A former CW has been getting the same emails I have, at the same frequency I think (I plan to see if she can tell me how many she's gotten, what dates, and what the sender is).
