Jane Doe in Harwood, Maryland said: And I suppose you do have the proper training and know how to interview candidates? Do have people/management skills, do you have the knowledge of the employment market and labor statistics and the intelligence to know how a business is run?
Actually, why don't you try working in a staffing agency for 1 day...I would venture a guess that you would not last one day!
Before you start thowing stones, I suggest you gain a true understanding of the staffing industry from both sides...not just yours!
I've been on "your side" a lot in the past decade.
I encourage my students to use staffing firms as one of their resources - and try to direct them to ones I know are effective and responsive.
Certainly, folks who don't get what they perceive as "fair treatment" nor the jobs they believe they should get can and will vent their frustrations.
And I can't fully blame them.
There's no cure for it, perhaps, other than making certain anyone in staffing is doing his/her best to be honest and communicative with candidates.
If any of us who have or do work in the placement sector take the longer view of doing right by both candidate and client, we're likely to have more people who WILL at least understand what is done and why. And that can't hurt!
