The owner will promise to have an answer for you regarding your state date every single day that you let her. She will never come to you with an actual start date. But will promise you over and over each day that she will call you by the end of the day. Instead of letting an individual know the truth, they will continue to lead you on.
Having never worked with a temp agency before, I will never work with one again after this experience. I was recruited by them; never would have thought to go through a temp agency and this is why. It was the most unprofessional experience I have ever had.
In this economy it is unfortunate that this owner thinks it is ok to lead an individual on, promising that the job will come through, knowing that it never will. Do not waste your time with this agency. There are many more professional agencies out there.
horrible communication, lies about start dates
