Veredus put two persons on client site. Unknowing to me it was a competition for a single slot. The other individual was selected as they had many more years experience. I have no problem with this. What I do have a problem with is that I was denied unemployment after Veredus falsely claimed I was terminated for "misconduct". I fought it and the State Unemployment agency agreed with me.
Sorry I lost a job of course, but a layoff is a layoff.
First and only time I encountered this slimy tactic
Contractor (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – February 10, 2015
Pros: benefits including insurance, professional recruiters and nice people to deal with
Cons: this is temp work so there is no paid time off or security
If you are looking for IT contracting gigs Veredus is a great company to work with. They will place you with key companies at a decent wage. Plus Veredus offers benefits like insurance & 401K plans -- not something most contracting companies provide.
The recruiters I've worked with have all been pleasant and professional. They even check in with you "on the job" to make sure all is well. They throw in lunches, gifts and even outings.
It only gets 1 star for job security / advancement because most of the gigs are temporary contracts. There is no security or advancement.
If you are an IT contractor be sure to check out Veredus!
I have worked with Veredus several times, each time was an excellent experience. They offer options for how you get paid, and for benefits as well. I find they are not intrusive and are very helpful. After a contract they are helpful in finding other contract or direct hire opportunities. The client sites I worked at were always good environments.
Tier II Technical Support (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – June 26, 2014
Pros: supportive and hard working.
Cons: most sound as if they are a little brainwashed, robotic.
They are thorough, mindful, supportive and hard working. One thing you can count is them calling you periodically to see how you are doing and what they have coming down the pike before your current contract expires. I highly recommend this company.
