Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT)’s VP Faked His Resume

Apparently Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT)’s Human Resource team needs a lesson in background checks as it gave a go ahead for the company’s VP Communications, David Tovar, when he was being hired. Bloomberg broke the news today in its ‘Top Headlines’.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT)

It’s certainly not a seminar or short course that Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT)’s ex VP Communication  falsely put on his resume and the company’s Human Resource chose to ignore it. Neither is it about a sport that Tovar made himself a captain of during his time at the university. Even if they ran a background check on that detail which is possible to have been on the resume in some form or  the other they would have found out that Mr. Tovar, as a matter of fact didn’t graduate from college at all.

Tovar, who had conveniently enhanced his educational credentials by proclaiming to be a graduate from the University of Delaware would have certainly wondered why people are paying such ridiculous sums in tuition fee, and then toiling throughout the program, when they might as well just fake it.

Trevor’s case is also puzzling. One doesn’t know whether to be awestruck by what he has been able to achieve or denounce the act. It’s not just the audacity of the action that we should be concerned about here. The talents of the man behind this audacity also deserve some special mention.

 In today’s world where graduates struggle to find a job, Trevor managed to get not just any job but became Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT)’s VP communication. This can’t be an easy post to land. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT)’s interview panel for the position must have been genuinely impressed by him. If that were the case they should also hand it out to the craftiness of their ex-VP and maybe hand out a bonus to him as well. There is no reason to force him to resign because that makes the whole hiring apparatus at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) look very stupid.
