I'm well aware that temp agencies post fake clerical ads at times to lure you in for different positions but I applied nonetheless since the bills are really starting to pile up. Anyways, I receive a call about a packaging position instead and was asked to come in for tests/interview. After successfully completing all the tests FIRST before being told exactly what the position would entail I decided the next day that going from office work to factory work just isn't for me, physically I don't think I'm up for it.
So, doing what I think is the polite thing, I called the next morning advising that I decided not to move forward for that position. The lady on the phone was trying to guilt trip me saying they already submitted for a background check and that it costs them $300. There was a moment of silence on the line before I stated that I wished to continue looking for jobs that I have at least some experience with.
Is the amount true? Anyone else ever hear that while working with them. If Manpower is a dishonest agency then I will not have anything else to do with them.
