Business Yaniv: TrustedNerd / JY Knows It / Former Employers - Boy Genius At Work

It's hard to tell, but he almost looks fatter last March than he does now, and also more like a woman somehow. I could see myself doing a double take for "fat guy or fat butch lesbian?"

IKR? When I saw that picture, I didn’t recognize him at first and my first thought was: “Who’s that fat, butch lesbian?”.

@Small Business Owner Thank you for having the courage to join this admittedly controversial community to bring some clarity. And feel free to stick around! The lying media may have given this place a negative reputation, but our users come from every background, country, color, belief, and lifestyle, and you'll find that this is a much more civil, friendly community than you'll find anywhere on Facebook or Twitter.

No sadly not, JY worked from home in Langley, and I worked from the office in Squamish before moving overseas with my family. JY was initially hired as she was pretty good at SEO, but as we grew and hired more in-house staff it didn't make sense to have JY working outside of the team environment. The natural cycle of an agency/contractor. I became aware of "all this" just like the rest of the public and am really shocked. Especially as a dad myself. I hope our company can distance ourselves from this as much as possible, hence the open and transparent dialogue here.
I don't think what Yaniv did should damage you in anyway. You were oblivious to what a litigious monster it was while you had the contract. As an individual I respect you working to try and be upfront rather than claiming ignorance while trying to scrub his lingering traces as damage control.

Good luck with your business going forward.

Interesting roundup of Yaniv's rotten conduct over the years on the JY Meow Mix blog:

The "Business Practices" of JY Knows IT and TrustedNerd

Andrew Barron, a past victim of the litigious leach, got tipped off by the writer to Yaniv's many defamations and is conferring with a lawyer of his own now - lol.

Among other things, the article addresses Yaniv's exploitation of Cimorelli, the Vegas conferences, falsely holding himself out to be tech guru and influencer, and landing customers by first shitting up their sites with hate posts and porn that he then offers to fix and prevent.

This strategy for digital marketing, shitting up a brand with garbage then offering to fix the problem...this is a trademark of wokeness.

Listen to the bulk of diversity consultants. There must be money in it, sending a bunch of rabid ignorants to pollute Facebook, Twitter, review pages, etc. Must not be MUCH money in it, but more than welfare.

I forgot to update this thread on his newest position! He's now a driver for Skip the Dishes (think Uber Eats). I've uninstalled the app because what would I do if he showed up to my door with food?

Ha....ha.....HAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!! Oh my fucking sides. I wish I lived in Walnut Grove instead of where I do because I'll never have the chance to meow at the fat fuck and record his reaction when he delivers my weekly order of liquor.

Oh that's fucking PRICELESS! :lit:

Wow. Skip the Dishes has numerous complaints over drivers eating some of the customer's food. ( https://globalnews.ca/news/6094563/...skipthedishes-app-again-after-a-bad-surprise/ )

Will this change the amount of traffic on the Yaniv Gunt thread? It should change the over/under spread on his BMI at least.

Since the Trans-fat punchline has already been used....Future Yelp review:

"I ordered a hot moo shu pork, but it came with porky in a moomoo who wouldn't shoo..."

I'd worry more what he would do to food, yours especially, but anyone's really. I can see him doing nasty shit to food.

My mom stuck it in my head that you can always send back food if it was bad but to do it nicely. Imagine if someone misgendered him on the phone???

De-necro'ing this thread to capture March 2020 info re: Yaniv's work history that's appeared in other threads:

@LangleyResident kicked it off on Twitter by posting a pic of the first page of Yaniv's eight-page rez (KF post). Yaniv then threatened @LangleyResident (KF post).
Screen Shot 2020-03-10 at 8.46.38 AM.png Screen Shot 2020-03-10 at 8.49.45 AM.png

Kiwis pointed out that Yaniv had the rez on his own damn website to begin with (KF post) and proceeded to critique the idiotic quality of the full document (begins on the main thread here and the JY social media thread here). He's got a slightly different but equally awful version of his resume on LinkedIn (KF post).

In sum, Yaniv's resumes show a feeble work history with huge gaps between brief entry-level positions and short-term government clerking interspersed with short marketing gigs that trailed off around 2016. He touts himself as self-employed but gives no evidence of having continuing clients or even being active as a "business consultant" anymore. To pad out the pathetic array, he includes unpaid work like being the Cimorelli social media creep and even secondary school and college gigs.
We'll do this like the critics' comments in film trailers:

"Professors and Executives don’t even have eight page resumes. This is fucked!" - @cloneconspiracy

"Alot of those bullet points are the same thing." - @bluegenius8585

"He's just crammed it full of keywords, and has even duplicated entries in his skills section multiple times." - @KingFrampt

"'Teacher Assistant for Grades... 8 and 11...' There is probably where he decided on his targets ages." - @Allakazam223

"lol at 8 pages. As if we needed any more confirmation that he's socially inept." - @Horsengineer

"He has no real experience writing software. His resume is terrible and is nowhere near what a technical resume would be." - @SickNastyBastard

"It seems like all his real jobs never lasted more than a few months apart from one (and by real jobs, I mean his non-JY knows it or trusted nerd shit" - @Jessica Campbell

"teenagers flipping burgers at McDonalds have worked longer than it has" - @Concerned Vagino-American

"No wonder he's fucking slinging drink samples to pay for his tampons." - @The Un-Clit

"An eight-pager from fatboy is seven pages of weapons-grade bullshit." - @TervenHoovesofDoom
And then there are the omissions. We don't generally put every job we've held on our resumes - just the relevant experience. But since Yaniv is including his pivotal work as a teacher's grading assistant in grades 8 and 11, you'd think he'd want to include his equally important stints with Costco, Marwick Marketing, and Gizmofusion (which does seem highly relevant).

Though he left his failed attempt to launch a conference called Digital in 2016 on his LinkedIn page, he omitted his bungled start-up for hawking Cimorelli-branded headphones that led to him suing (of course) his partner in the endeavor.

@cloneconspiracy notes that Yaniv also omitted his Greenside Estates lifeguard job that went so wrong, the work he claims to have done in some capacity with young girls and the homeless, and his Social Justice University PhD.

Bonus sperging: In one resume entry, Yaniv pasted in competency ratings he said he received when he was 26 during one of his three-month term appointments as a T1 processing clerk at Revenue Canada/Surrey. I looked up the competency ratings.
Yaniv provided scores for 2014 - the last year in which he worked for Revenue Canada. While Revenue Canada’s online information is for 2016, a lot of it still fits with what Yaniv was given. The four-level scoring system:
Level 1 - usually reactive behaviour. The behaviour is usually in response or reaction to a situation and may be influenced or prompted by someone else, such as a supervisor or a client.

Level 2 - usually active behaviour. It involves effort or attention required to engage in action. This behaviour may be demonstrated by an action or a concern.

Level 3 - usually proactive behaviour. It involves foresight in order to take action in advance or prepare for an expected occurrence or situation rather than waiting to respond until after it happens. This type of behaviour is often based on knowledge or past experience.

Level 4 - usually strategic behaviour. This behaviour involves a broad perspective in order to plan and take action related to a strategy for addressing a complex situation. The outcome of this behaviour may have future impacts on the larger organization.

Yaniv's scores are in orange below.

BEHAVIOURAL COMPETENCIES

Adaptability 2

Showing openness to change and altering behaviours in order to work effectively when faced with new information, a changing situation or environment

Analytical Thinking 2
(No obvious 2016 equivalent.)

Change Leadership 1
(Yaniv's lowest score, but how much change leadership would you even want a T1 processing clerk to display? No obvious 2016 equivalent.)

Client Service Orientation 4
Called "Service Excellence" by 2016:
  • Striving to provide the best service to internal or external clients.
  • Enhances service delivery to a client base by improving systems and processes.
  • Anticipates clients' future needs; plans and acts accordingly to provide long-term benefits.
  • Gains an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the business and needs of the client base.
  • Implements initiatives to achieve service excellence.
  • Recommends or determines strategic service delivery to meet projected needs of clients and prospective clients.
Conflict Resolution 3
(No obvious 2016 equivalent. I'm surprised he did that well given his inability to refrain from suing people, hitting people, and siccing the police on people these days.)

Dealing with Difficult Situations 2
Called "Dealing with Difficult Interactions" by 2016: interacting with others in a tactful and effective manner when faced with a sensitive or tense situation in order to preserve productive working relationships. To be given a level 2, Yaniv would have to have shown he:
  • Controls own emotions and responds to provocation or challenge in a professional manner.
  • Considers the needs, emotions, and perspectives of the other person involved to determine how to best address the situation.
  • Engages the other person in a productive discussion in order to achieve the desired results and maintain positive working relationships.
  • Keeps an open mind, listens to the other person to understand their point of view and identifies common interests.
  • Focuses the conversation on the facts of the situation rather than on the person.
Decisiveness 3
(No obvious 2016 equivalent.)

Developing Others 3
(No obvious 2016 equivalent.)

Effective Interactive Communication 2
Transmitting and receiving information clearly and communicating actively with others in a manner that is effective and consistent with the organizational objectives (excludes written communications - that’s a separate category below).

Impact and Influence 2
(No obvious 2016 equivalent.)

Initiative 2
(No obvious 2016 equivalent.)

Relationship / Network Building 2
Became "Collaboration with Partners and Stakeholders" by 2016: building and maintaining an effective and constructive network with partners, stakeholders or contacts* who may be helpful in achieving organizational goals.

Self Confidence 2
(no obvious 2016 equivalent)

Teamwork and Cooperation 2
Being part of a group and working cooperatively with other members toward the achievement of a common work-related goal.

Team Leadership 2
Appears as just "Leadership" by 2016: engaging members of a group and providing guidance and support, while being accountable for the group’s achievement of organizational goals and objectives.

Strategic Outlook and Alignment 2
Called "Strategic Orientation" by 2016: acting in accordance with the organizational priorities, strategies or vision.

TECHNICAL COMPETENCIES

Writing Skills In English 2

The effective communications category above refers to verbal communications. This one is specifically skill in writing English (or French) documentation. A rating of 2 is categorized as Basic: Demonstrates basic knowledge and capability to apply it in common situations that present limited problems. Requires guidance to deal with the more complex situations.

(The other technical competencies are for accounting and auditing and not applied to his work as a T1 processing clerk.)


Two competencies in use since 2016 but not easily compared with Yaniv’s 2014 ratings: Creativity and Innovation, and Problem Solving.

He also forgot to include door to door knife salesman in Greenside. He was trying to sell expensive knife sets and got $15 for every demo. This would have been about 8-10 years ago. He was a total loser at that too, and daddy would get mad at people if they didn't let his son in their house to make a pitch.

OMG - Yaniv with knives at the door????

What was his father like in general? I'm guessing the fruit didn't fall-- erm, the nutball didn't fall far from the nut tree.
