    I have literally just got another job thru an agency. I handed my notice in on Monday and I start the new one in Jan.

    The agency were professional and curtious, never gave me anything less than the truth, put my CV to the right people and followed up each request for information I had. I in turn was honest with them and stayed in regular contact and generally did everything they asked of me.

    If you are dissatisfied with your agency use another one. If you want to get a job then treat everyone you come in to contact with at the same professional level you would want to be treated yourself. Two business basics frankly.


    The voice of reason - another happy customer. Thanks for giving the other side of the coin.

    The thing is - this is what 99% of my candidates and clients would say about me and my agency and the shite that some of you are posting is incredibly offensive to someone like me who has been doing this job for six years in an honest and professional manner.

      I have no experience of "general" recruitment agencies, but have positive experience with specialists (in my case Healthcare Industry).

      Main thing to remember is that whilst recruiters like to call themselves "consultants" in effect they are sales people to whom you are a saleable commodity. You don't get a job...they get no commish. They, like all Sales People, would prefer that you are as easy to sell as possible, after all everyone likes an easy life!

      They are not in it to be alturistic and will try where possible to put you in front of the best opportunity for your skills. The worst ones just go "scattergun" and send every spanner and drongo along in the hope that one gets lucky...kinda like spermatozoa!

      I think the flounce we all witnessed a while ago is a little over-dramatic because..what does he think he is?... some sort of "Employment Angel" bestriding the earth righting wrongs and feeding the needy.

      You are a Sales Rep mate. nothing more or less, live with it.
      I've killed women and children. I've killed everything that walks or crawls at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill Archer, for what you done to The Seagulls.

      Oh, and for the umpteenth time I am NOT a contractor, still getting the facts wrong is also part of your job description. What's it like to be a leper ?
      you're an angry man

      And the utter shite you're posting rather shows just how ignorant you are of your own 'profession'. Face it you're little more than a pimp and frankly couldn't give a shit about your clients as long as you get your cut.

      Find the thread. I had the last word.

      Double glazing - resorting to sterotypes again. YAWN! What are you like? You're just a bitter, twisted, sad, nasty, bigoted old man aren't you.

      I believe you are looking for work and will no doubt be speaking to lots of agencies. Make sure you don't catch leprosy!
