What a joke. I called and explained I was just beginning my search and was wondering if I could speak to someone as to whether my background matched their specialties. Apparently that's not their process...
I was told that I had to submit my resume through their website, and it would take 3-5 days for one of their recruiters to call me. If I didn't hear back in a week, I was to resubmit my resume through the website.
I politely asked "is there a chance I won't hear back at all?" to which the answer was "yes, so you need to resubmit your resume until you do". I paused for a moment to let this sink in, and realized that this is the stupidest, least client focused, and one of the more arrogant approaches I've ever heard. So I politely asked "why would I do that?", to which she replied boredly, "so someone might reply back", to which I politely replied "no thank you, good luck" and hung up the phone.
Fortunately I'm an experienced executive with networks and an MBA, so I have other options. But if I was a newly minted grad, or new to the area, this would be soul crushing.
AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!! Don't let people like this waste your time. If this is how poorly they treat possible candidates at intake, I can only imagine the frustration and disappointment that awaits any one who is "lucky" enough to receive a reply.
The worst Agency – Ashton Longest gave me a different rate and then later I found out she's keep more than half of my paycheck.
How are you supposed to survive with such a small paycheck? Such liars
do not work for them!!
An inside track on the job market – After being downsized in March, I sent my resume in to Beacon Hill Staffing Group and was contacted almost immediately by Sherri Pearl, one of their staffers. Even in the terrible economic climate Beacon Hill made my job search go very quickly, getting me into four interviews for appropriate and interesting jobs within only a few weeks. Additionally, Sherri went above and beyond in helping me to edit my resume and job contact materials and providing great advice tailored to each individual employer. I recommend Beacon Hill very highly and will definitely be contacting them again for any job search in the future.
