If this is a real response, then you are way off base or possibly I am. I understand that this forum is to describe potential employers. If this assumption is correct, then the veracity of the employer is definitely on point. However I have been wrong before…

Beware!!!!!!!!

How did you find out about the bad mouthing. I think my previous company may be doing the same to me but I can't get the prospective employers to give me any insight on what turned them off my resume???

Help if you can, Thanks.

Try having someone call for you and ask for a reference. Have a good cover story ready for the caller. Has been done before. My friend was bad mouthed by one person who said that they would give a good refernce. The recruiter has good references except for one mentioned this to him saying, "It would probably be best if you didn't use them in the future." That's what happened to him. Your mileage may vary.

Since you're on this topic, one suggestion. I never list the Recruiting company name on my resume. I just use the client company. E.g., Intel vs. Teksystems, or whatever. When they ask for references, I give them my client manager references or others in the industry. I never use the Recruiting company as a reference.

I left Teksystems and found out that they had me listed as terminated in their system. Not only that, my last check was written off of a closed account. The bank told me that they could not verify any of the info on the check. I eventually got my money.

TEK also has me listed as terminated in the system whereas my contract was not renewed. They tried to deny my unemployment saying I was fired for being disresceptful to the client, but thankfully the state said they did not provide specific instances so my unemployment was approved. I will not respective employers contact TEK. I use a former co-worker at the client site as my reference. Do not trust anything the account manager says. Get everything in writing!

Well, TEK is still a pain in my rear-end. They have appealled my unemployment. Now TEK says I was discharged for unacceptable and improper conduct. Seems they can't make up their mind...

Simply put, everyone has a unique working experience whether it is through Tek Systems or directly with an employer. Here is one of the few tips I have learned over the years. Do not depend on a good job reference from a former employer. Most HR rules are only going to allow basic info released. Such as answering that they worked there and dates etal...A great idea depending on your job title, it to keep a booklet of e-mails (black-out company direct exposure items) and put together a snapshot of these employee/customer appreciation type of comments. You will be amazed at how powerful a stack of complimentary letters/e-mails will add to your next job.
