I had a guy I was hiring that told me his work and home email address were monitored and his phone was recorded at work. He told me "they are like big brother and watch us". His company paid for the internet and installed some sort of tracking to the home Outlook email since they paid for it. Talk about living in fear. His wife would call me to discuss things and she was the middle person during the whole hiring process. He used a web based email address to get his information. The poor guy lived in fear and was beat down from it- they were just miserable- needless to say they accepted the job on the spot and could not wait to start.
