Hostile work environment allegations made against Scottsdale recruiting firm

eBossWatch has spoken to an anonymous source who has personally witnessed and experienced the work environment at David Shefrin & Associates and alleges a hostile work environment at the Scottsdale, Arizona based recruiting company.

Calling company founder David Shefrin an “all around bad boss,” the eyewitness said, “I have seen David scream, yell, and throw temper tantrums like a five year old child.  In addition, there have been at least 3 occasions where he has made a co-worker cry in meetings.  His tyrannical yelling is almost more than one can bare.  I have seen 3 employees leave due to his rage and yelling.”

These allegations were confirmed by a former David Shefrin & Associates employee, who described a high employee turnover rate at the recruiting firm where “people were getting hired and fired quite often.”  The former employee claims that Shefrin “picked on and bullied women” much more frequently than men.  The former employee also alleges to have witnessed Shefrin bring several employees to tears with his yelling and bullying.

    I too have witnessed Mr. Shefrin “in action”. All of the above remarks are very accurate and he manages his employees by intimidation and threats of termination, reduction in wages, and personal insults. He actually discourages any other type of contact with actual employees except his department heads which he bullies freely in front of his entire staff. I once said hello to Mr. Shefrin upon exiting a local restaurant about a week after employment and he just looked at me with a disdainful face and ignored me. I question whether he is sincere about his plans for success when hiring a recruiter and feel that he has other goals and plans for these employees.
