We just have way too many recruiters competing for way too few jobs. You got it. It is a very big joke. I have recruiters calling me from CA to ME for suppose jobs. They are grasping for straws. Yep meet and greet. Filling a quota. RH is the worst. I remember when a agency use to be in the state where they were dealing with employers. No more they are all over the place trying to keep alive with bad practices. You nailed it on the head San Jose!

Why Getting A Job Is A Complete SCAM

We need more jobs not more recruiters. I remain with my first assertion that I will wait and see before I pass judgement and because I don't have a lawyer, it will not keep me from making a complaint if I feel that a crime or shady business practice is being committed, even if it is not acted on by your sisters employee, I at least can say I did the right thing, instead of using a blog to vent my grievances.

1. Create a target employer list.

The BBB is nothing more than a self-congratulating scam that will protect members from bad press. In some cases, a large company in a locality will be "watchdog" for itself and others in its particular industry. For example, my mother lived in Sacramento, California. She had some problems with a large plumbing company, that is, sending someone out to troubleshoot a plumbing problem she had.

Job websites & recruitment companies

This company did a very poor job. She complained to BBB where it turned out that this large plumbing company handled ALL complaints against all plumbing companies in the area. Because of this, I don't trust or use the BBB, as it's just a sham and a joke. If you really want to find out about a good temporary office, at the unemployed at your local unemployment office or job club.

They'll be more than happy to tell you who is reputable, and who is a waste of time. Should read: If you really want to find out about a good temporary agency, talk to the unemployed at your local unemployment office or job club. To those that seem to have taken my post incorrectly or personally, my issue with this blog is that it is not reaching enough people and most definitely the right authorities, it just seems like a venting session for therapy purposes, which is fine, but I for one am an individual that if I have an issue, I take it directly to the authorities or the agency that oversees such matters.

It seems to me that venting your grievances on this blog doesn't accomplish much expcept, maybe, some verbal therapy for your anger and doesn't really change things. I apologize to those that were offended by this, but it is what it is.

I also noted that if you have nothing nice to say about the staff agencies that you have encountered why are you continuing to follow up with them at all. I for one have signed on with RH and if they call with a position, well that's a plus, but I most certainly did not leave thinking that I was going home and wait for their call. If you want a decent position in this tough economy you need to do the work; including sending out resumes and networking. I, too, have too much experience, Roxy, to put up with the BS and will never become so dependent on those types of agencies to get myself into a twist about them.

Another thing, you know absolutely nothing about me, however, a clue to your personality came through quite clear to me and I found your sentiments in your reply to me quite humorous, but no hard feelings and I wish you and your husband all the luck and success in the world with your trucking business , oh and by the way, I have a number of degrees also, but I didn't feel the need to flash them to make my point.

To everyone else on this site, make your voices heard where it counts and post your comments to the BBB and other authoritative agencies and if necessary your state and federal representatives, this is the best way of getting results if this is really an issue that drives you to distraction and keeps you up at night. Love your comment. Want to laugh? My daughter lives in Sacramento. She had her fireplace cleaned. Well even after the expensive acid cleaning it caught fire.

BBB did nothing. You know it is the same office. Yes I also found the State Agency for unemployment to be the best. I have had 2 temporary positions from them. In NJ they even contact you by phone and through email once your resume is put into their website by the NJ State.

Several agencies refused to help because of Robert Half's lies. No Name in Irvine, California. I have had the pleasure of working for RHT twice. The first time I was on an assignment with some other company and was asked by one of RHT Agents to leave the job as quickly as possible to take on the job opening they had making it so attractive. After two weeks into the work they made a story that I was not performing and I was actually causing trouble when I spoke up requesting that they get me the correct tools and permission to do the job they has assigned to me and I would be evaluated on; not to mention they had a employee in that spot that felt threaten by my presence.

Second Time, They placed me at a job, they told me that the original employee was being let go and I would be replacing him. After 1 month he was transferred to their Northern office and I was told that he has gotten a promotion. Three month into the deal the original employee showed up and first I was told that he was here to attend some training and take care of an assignment after without warning and lots of unpaid overtime they told me on a Friday afternoon that he is coming back to his old post and I would no longer be needed. What gets me, RHT claims that the client has told them that I was not performing my duties the way I was suppose to but when I spoke with the manager of the department at the job assignment they told me that it was because the original person had come back and they did not need two people in that position.

Do not work with RHT as they will not stick up for you and flat out leave you to to fend for yourself. I tried to see my files with RHT and to this date they had refused to show me my records. Jackson in San Jose, California. So i got a call from RHI today.

Anyhow, I give my background and my skills and I say I am looking for any sort of work on computers which is true - I will even do data entry as I am a fast typist.

Once he figures out that I was laid off my last job outsourcing and that I am a long term unemployed person - all of a sudden it is "Well, I will see what I can do to help you".
