TechUSA's ethics (or lack thereof) cost me a job offer
Job Candidate (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 27, 2012
I had an interview with a company through TechUSA, and because some budgeting issues came up, that position was not filled. About a year later, I had an interview with that same company through another recruiting company, and it looked like a job offer was imminent.
However, TechUSA found out that I had that interview with said company, and because I had an interview set up by TechUSA previously, they called that company's hiring manager and started throwing a hissy, trying to claim that I was "their" employee and that I should not be hired by that company via another recruiting company, even though TechUSA had NO right to do this whatsoever.
The end result: The hiring manager did not want to burn his bridges with TechUSA and I did not get the job offer.
I will NEVER work with TechUSA again. They want commission, and will stoop to anything it takes to get it, even if it means costing someone desperately needing a job offer in a tough economy. There are other recruiters out there that I can work with, thank you very much.
they did call me often with job opportunities
unethical - techusa will do anything it takes to get their commission
