[QUOTE=LI_Domer;127623]I don’t know too much about Dr Cappeto, but I figured I’d give him the benefit of the doubt and figure he’d be much better than Carpenter. Especially since she wouldn’t (or wasn’t allowed to) stay 'till her replacement came. What negative things has Cappeto done though.[/QUOTE]
One doozy was that he made an employment agreement about one well liked and respected employee and then went back on his word 3 days later, firing that person. To make matters worse that person was told that they were expected to compose a statement about “leaving” Maritime, as if it was voluntary. They were also told that they were expected to work for the next 3 days, as if everything was peachy keen. To ice the cake, they tried to time the firing so the person would get screwed out of about $40,000+ in accumulated benefits. Luckily that person had contacts who put a stop to that.
When that person did not agree to the statement about leaving and did not go back to work for the next 3 days, Cappeto’s goons told people the the person had left voluntarily. Of course, that person had talked to many at Maritime, so everyone knew the administration was lying. Then they changed tack and told people that Carpenter had fired the person, another lie. Maritime’s a pretty small place, The stunts I described actually prompted a meeting or two, off campus to discuss the vile behavior. Now nobody will believe a word Cappeto says, and they don’t know if they’ll be next to get axed.
Cappeto also hired some consultant to study athletics. Everyone over there is on pins and needles about their jobs. Remember, this clown is just “interim”, yet he seems to be looking to make major changes that will effect the school long term. That is not proper.
He seems to be relying on two particularly odious people for advice. Both are generally disliked and thought of as back stabbing self promoters. Both were hired by Carpenter, with no experience in their management areas. Neither has accomplished one thing since they’ve been at Mariitme. One got the nickname “Needle Nose” because everyone saw how far he had his nose up Carpneter’s ass, BUT, when things went south for Carpenter, he immediately extracted his nose from Carpenter’s ass and put it up Cappeto’s. Then he proceeded to make disparaging remarks about Carpenter. Cappeto even seems to think the guy is an “expert” on the maritime industry even though he’s never spent on minute in the industry or even had any contact with the industry.
Another person who seems to have gotten power is also known as a thoroughly arrogant autocrat. According to reports, she recently fired one employee because “she did not like the employee”.
I could go on. but you get the idea. Thing’s ain’t good at Maritime.
