    I filled out a job application online for a hvac job on career builders.com
    and after the first page which asked for name number
    address and prefered cell number I got a second page
    that wasnt voluntary that asked my sex and race.

    Is this a marketing company trying to get my info trying to get my cell phone number and calling only the the race that fits a demo or trying sell my race/number?

    Would u not fill out this application?

    Have u filled out these kinds of non voluntary
    questions?

    The application ended with a page saying it was apc world wide.

    This is how they defined race.

    I tried to skip it because I suspect discrimination when i see that kind of thing and the form said I didnt fill it in and wouldnt let me continue until I filled it out.

    Also after applying to abunch of career builder jobs I started getting spam emails the next day.

    I would contact HVAC-AGENT and ask for some advice. If you presently have a resume, fax it to the person who talked with you.
    These are great folks who really care about you landing a job.
    Once you have spoken with them, they will advise you on how best to fill oot your online forms.


    HVAC-AGENT is the best place to apply for work in the inudstry, save for word of mouth referrals.
