We've all heard a lot about employees

"ghosting" their employers, i.e., no show/no call, situations. Does anyone have any anecdotes about the reverse: employers "ghosting" hourly new hires that go weeks without being scheduled to clock in after paperwork and training. DH is pushing 4 weeks without a work schedule for a job not billed as "seasonal," and with a nearly full-time 35-hour availability for a PT gig; his paperwork has been signed, he's done training, passing their tests and background checks; he's even received mailings regarding the employer's benefit package. Is there a "secret" push by RW leaning employers to fudge reportable Labor statistics or perhaps identity theft of personal information? I'm getting awfully suspicious about "real" employment at this large corporate big box? Our budget could sure use a paycheck, and yet: no scheduled hours even after checking personally with HR? Please share any experience about this strange phenomenon in hiring practices.

1. I'm not aware of anything like that....

I would suggest he contact whoever he's been working with in HR...

Could have been an oversight.... But I doubt it's a scam because it costs a lot of money to hire some one....

2. He did just that - still no scheduled hours.

HR said once hired, HR was out of the loop; checked with trainer scheduler - "come to the store in person daily to check your schedule (drug test and papers signed; orientation hours finished; cashier training not done but he should check schedule in person - do they even know there are such things as phones or e-mail?
