On the one hand, many criticized Reyes’ visceral response, and the language he used while representing a company like FEMSA. However, the majority were more bothered by Martínez’s response, as they say it was “superb”, “unnecessary” and “not friendly”.
“Where was I not nice? If I even invited her to review my profile before offering a vacancy that has no relation to my previous experience, “Fernando said in networks in the face of criticism.
Others went against FEMSA, for not having qualified personnel for these tasks. Someone even pointed out that the woman is not a specialist in human resources or personnel recruitment, but a Bachelor of Nutrition.
