Veteran Told She Wasn’t Right For Job At Macy’s Because She Served In Afghanistan (Video)


If I had the money to shop at Macy’s, I’d stop because of this disrespect:

A 21-year-old Afghanistan veteran claims she was denied a job in Macy’s specifically because of her service in the war-torn nation.

Kayla Reyes says she interviewed for a job on the sales floor at Fresno’s Fashion Fair mall in February but was told that she wouldn’t be able to relate to customers because she had seen combat.

Reyes, who enlisted in the military at the age of 17, claims that the interview took a turn for the worse when her 4-year army career came up and that the hiring manager said, ‘Being that you’ve been over there, you wouldn’t really know how to approach people.’

Stunned, Reyes said the manager continued and said that having spent a year dealing with IED’s and the Taliban, ‘Once a customer’s in your face, you wouldn’t know how to do it. You wouldn’t know how to react.’

Un-freaking-believable.

Someone at Macy’s needs to send the manager to the unemployment line.

Maybe give Reyes her job.
