My last job made me worship Satan. Oh, no, this wasn't required by management, it's just after a while I needed to worship the devil just to make it through the day.

That's the last time I work as a moderator for Reddit.

propasaurus: United Health Programs of America and its parent company, Cost Containment Group

WTF?

I worked for a small retail boutique some 30+ years ago where the managers were heavy into EST. They insisted that all employees attend EST training seminars and would have mandatory weekly 'sharing' session.



You would have thought they would have used GMT.

As a small business owner who forces his employees to worship Pumpkinhead I'm getting a big kick out of this thread.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?


If there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.

In any case, the more I do stare at that animated GIF of Onionhead, the more I do feel his/her/its love.

I feel tempted to worship it.

Maybe even construct a golden statue of it.

fireclown: Oh god, this. Talk about an effing cult. EST was about one L. Ron Hubbard from becoming Dianetics.


Actually Scientology and EST are closer linked than one might imagine.

One developed from Dianetics, the other from Diuretics.

a particular individual: My local Hardee's had a big, construction-paper sign in the kitchen that you could see from the drive-through:

HAVE YOU PATHED TODAY?
DISCOVER THE POWER OF PATHING

Always seemed pretty cultish to me. It's not there anymore. I've wondered if management changed, or if there was a similar employee complaint.

/Hardee's sucks


Na, not a cult, it increases your ranged haste by 1%.

Um, if they suck so bad what are you doing in their drive thru?

What?  You had the chance to learn EST and you passed it up?  Man, think of all the minds you could have read and all the advantages that would have given you!

Oh, wait, is that ESP?

Seems like a little worship is the least these monkeys can do for their blessed Job Creators. A little thanks is deserved, you know? If it weren't for their benevolence, there wouldn't be any jobs.

One employee told the management that she was Catholic and did not want to take part in the Onionhead religious practices.

One month later that employee was moved from her office and relocated...

Hmm maybe should have looked into this job more while surfing the job site. Mainly "job description" or "required duties."

-must be proficcient in Microsoft office
-must say i love you to supervisors
-must be willing to renounce faith and worship an onion man
-must be willing to work weekends and some holidays

Trance750: That whole thing sounds like it's a page out of Scientology


I found the paragraph you just quoted on the world's most terribly designed website:

http://www.harnessinghappiness.org/aboutus.aspx

It's a seriously giant pile of flaky new-age bullshiat mixed in with random religious elements, but it's nowhere near as slick as Co$ or EST/Landmark/Ehrhard.

I'm sure L Ron on his yacht or The Bagwahn cruising Rashneeshpuram in a Rolls Royce is what they aspire to be. Dare to dream, flaky cult-of-personal-empowerment people.  Dare to dream.

Was it mandatory-mandatory or was it just an optional-but-you-are-fired-if-you-miss thing?
