Wal-Mart spokesman David Tovar after the Company learned He lied about his Resume
David Tovar will soon be the former Wal-Mart's vice president of corporate communications, last week he wrote a message "Farewell" with the message that he was leaving the company after 8 years of service and that he is a better person and better professional with the experience that he gain from the company, and he said that "I am leaving on good terms and Walmart has been very supportive. I am still here a few more weeks." But it turns out the reason he is leaving is because he lied about his resume. So kids remember this, it's not good lying specially about your resume. It will haunt you someday. Tovar lied about graduating from the University of Delaware in 1996.
In an interview with CNBC, he insist that it was a résumé error and it was discovered when he was under assessment that is a regular process when being promoted to senior vice president.
"As part of that process I was going through additional leadership assessment, including a battery of tests including questions about leadership, drug tests, background checks. In the background check my education was flagged—it was done by a third party company. They asked me about it, and I was 100 percent transparent."
"I got a job and never looked back. I really didn't think an art degree would matter in communications, which was the field I went into."
"Wal-Mart said they could not promote me based on what they found. I said that the more senior job is the one that what I wanted, so we agreed I would leave. I am leaving on good terms and Walmart has been very supportive. I am still here a few more weeks."
