These guys are probably the worst recruiting firm in Boston. They are unresponsive and try to place you in temp jobs just so they can get their payout. They tried getting me to go on in interview for a position that they had no information on on, if you can believe that. Then when you actually respond to a job posting that fits your qualifications, you don't hear from them or you get a one word response from them. They are horrible.

Actually, I thought they were one of the most responsive and honest recruiters with whom I have dealt.

They never placed me but they returned calls and explained why I was not a fit for the two positions I had discussed with them. No run around, no BS.

Your mileage may vary.

After reading the 3 negative responses to this post I can see how they did not call you back. Your spelling,grammar and capitalizations are all wrong. I bet your resume is a mess. The positive response was free of errors.

I agree. They advertise jobs that don't exist or that they don't have.

Don't you think that most recruiters s@ck?! Everyone I have dealt with has lied to me. I'm not sure how they make their money if they don't help people get jobs.

Ed:

"capitalizations"?
How about adding a space after your comma if you want to get nitty-gritty with others.

Think before you speak.

Best regards,

Generally, yes I do. My experience with most recruiters has not been pleasant... everything from being non-responsive to calling my employer and former employers looking for leads.

My opinion here regarding Michael Page is a highly unusual one given my lack of regard for recruiters.

Michael Page has the "hurry up and do nothing" disease. I did everything they consulted me to do. I met with them. We discussed strategy....then they disappeared.

My resume, my confidence, my dignity...all gone in one fellswoop.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I work at Michael Page in the New York office, and I love it. I have gotten flowers, letters, even a necklace from Tiffany's from candidates thanking me for helping them find the next best opportunity, that they would not have found on their own. Believe me we WANT to help everyone, but that would be impossible. I am currently working on 20 open positions, and I meet 15 candidates PER WEEK obviously some will be disappointed. I just placed a candidate I met 6 months ago but never forgot, I have also placed someone 3 days after meeting them. This job is all about timing. If the recruiter did not have information you should be flattered that you were the first phone call when the job was "hot off the press". Please keep in mind your attitude words your recruiter will affect our enthusiasm for sending you out to our clients, how will you treat the receptionist, what will your manners be like? As for sending you to a temp job, that is a good option if you are not currently employed, which you must not be or we would not suggest it. Do not shy away from Temp-Perm opportunities, the best workers have nothing to fear, they could be offered perm if there is an open spot. While it is important that we have great relationships with our candidates, we are not an employment agency. Further more, we are a non-commissioned based firm, so that should address your "in it for the payout comment" Again sorry you had a bad experience.

All jobs sent out to the boards are live, active jobs. Not spam. Your chances of getting called by us are better than getting called back from submitting directly. There is often no one actually reading your resume if you directly submit.

The typical job search for even our very best candidates can be upwards of three months, hang in there.

Michael Page is also the worst agency to work for in the Connecticut area... and probably the worst agency to work for ever.. DON'T WORK FOR THEM!!!! Can you believe that other staffing agencies such as office team, adecco, McIntyre etc rewards there employees with paid holidays, i.e. memorial day, labor day, vacation time and even bonuses.. at Michael Page an employee gets nothing, nada, ziltch... you just work get paid... and don't thing about trying to get the medical insurance because its so expensive it may cost you your weekly salary for a family... I don't think that they know of reward and recognition and if an employee is not recognized and rewared morale is going to decline... I don't even think they are aware of work life balance because with no paid holidays and vacation timeouts an employee will be burnt out.....

I've noticed that Michael Page reps hurry to get you through the door to make that money I have to give them credit for that. I signed up with them a Monday and by Friday I had a job offer, but the one thing that they did not discuss was that they don't give you as a temp any paid holidays or bonuses like other firms do, Robert Half, Adecco etc. DON'T WORK FOR MICHAEL PAGE this company is into modern day slavery. Remember as a temp or contractor we are already under paid, we get no benefits so if you think you making $18.00 with no benefits its more like $9 per hour after you take care of a medical bill that not often.

The consultants from MP are RUDE, UNKIND and primarily focused on whats going on in your company, where all have u applied for the jobs, i.e. prospective clients for them and they can go to pitch for themselves...

They make situation so complicated, they lie, put undue pressure and when unable to get through their candidate they put blames on others.
They don't provide feed back.
When you need job and you call them they will not respond, but if u get a job and change your linkedin of FB status they will call you saying "I just called you to say hi! are you still looking for the change.

I agree, "David" called me up offering all kinds of positions and had my resume in hand. Said he was sending out job descriptions right away. Never heard from him again and he would never return calls. He did the same thing to me a year ago? Must be on a quota system and need to make X number of calls a day. How they make money by not actually placing people in jobs is beyond me. Wish they would be upfront with people and at least give feedback like other more reputable agencies!
