Ex-NBA employee posts grievances on league’s Facebook page[ad_1]
Don’t forget to update your passwords.
The NBA got a reminder of that on Monday morning when a supposed former member of its social media team found themself with access to the league’s official Facebook page — and they had some grievances to air.
“How do I log out of this?” they wrote. “Haven’t worked here in weeks.
“Anyway, the NBA overextends it’s [sic] social media employees greatly to the detriment of their health and social lives for a salary of less than $50k annually after taxes.
“I worked 14 hour shifts without breaks at times. Shoutout Adam Silver.
The post was quickly deleted.
The anonymous former NBA poster didn’t share any clues as to their specific job functions, though they did reveal some thought-provoking claims about how the league conducts its business.
“We don’t get health insurance until 90 days on the job!” they wrote. “That’s silly isn’t it?
“Glad I resigned, no need for a job to get in the way of your happiness. Donate to mental health causes.”
A reported second post touting an ex-employee’s new consulting business left contact info for a Dean Joannou.
According to a LinkedIn profile matching the information posted, Joannou worked for the NBA as a Digital & Social Content Publisher from March 2023 to August 2023.
The NBA has yet to publicly comment on the Facebook posts.
