Woman rejected for job because her name is 'too ghetto' in Missouri

Woman rejected for job because her name is 'too ghetto' in Missouri

Hermeisha Robinson, 27, of St Louis, Missouri, had applied for a customer service job at Mantality Health when she received an email which was signed by a nurse practitioner Jordan Kimler.

"My feelings are very hurt and they even got me second-guessing my name, trying to figure out if my name is really that 'ghetto, '" she wrote on the post.

"The company looked at my name and said we don't care about what you've done in life, your name is going to dismiss you completely", Zachery told KMOV. Here's what you need to know. As reported by the New York Post, Robinson applied for a job at Mantality Health, a company that treats men with low testosterone in Missouri.

Robinson's post continued: "They discriminated against me because of my name which they considered it to be "ghetto" for their company!"

A statement issued on behalf of Hermeisha, through her legal representative said: "Ms. Robinson is asking herself, as we all should be asking, why a business would so openly and brazenly announce and pursue a hiring policy that targets people because they are of colour rather than hire people based upon their desire to work and support their families". About a name that I was given people are so mean and rude and will say anything to get laughs like I just all of a sudden just make up something so mean like this!

"Honestly right then and there my eyes got a little teary".

But this week, Robinson learned she had been rejected for a customer service position she had believed she was "well qualified for".




'It made her cry and question her name, whether she should change her name to fit in corporate America, ' she said. Between networking, updating your resume and cover letters on job search sites, following up with applications, and wondering if a company is going to ghost on you, applicants invest tens of hours on finding a new gig alone.

"My name has meaning to me", Zachery said in an interview with KMOV.

Robinson was named after her father, Herman, who died when Robinson was young. "It's from my mom and my father". "I'm deeply upset that her name was tied to something that disgusting".

According to WBTV, other women in Wisconsin and Minnesota have received this email. As for Mentality Health, it maintains that the email was sent by a hacker.

Mantality Health's clinic director Jack Gamache told CBS Sacramento that the company's account was hacked and that police are now investigating the situation. What's more CEO Kevin Meuret said that at least 20 people might have received similar emails. "We share the anger and frustration of those who received these bogus emails".

Local police in Chesterfield also told KSDK on Tuesday that they are now investigating the matter.

"We are now working with law enforcement to identify the perpetrator and consider appropriate legal action", the statement read.
