Dishonest Company and Unprofessional
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – July 14, 2018
I had the displeasure of "working" with outsource, I was informed that I was going for a "working interview" for a project managers position. The job site I was been sent to was a 5 hour round trip using public transport so I had the cost of renting a car for the day, I contacted the "company" that I was being sent to do the "working interview" the night before who informed me it was not a working interview, I told him I would discuss it with him the next day. The guy I met was actually the owner of the company who was on his tools so I doubt whether an owner of a company on his tools would have much call for a PM, he informed me that he was looking for a PM, that this was not a working interview and that he needed a technician as he was 4 weeks behind on his workload. I contacted Outsource immediately to inform them of this who instructed me to keep working, the job we were there to do could not be completed as the guy didn't arrange for his IT guy to be available that day so we could not get the CCTV camera working, HE told me to go home.
Having had the expense of renting a car and providing all my own PPE gear which I had to buy for this specific site, get up at 05:30am and returning home at 13:00 Outsource paid me a grand total of $68 !!
I would class Outsource as a cowboy outfit, if you take no pride in your work or you've been chased off all the sites in the Bay Area and can't get work, try Outsource, if you are a professional and take pride in your work stay well clear of Outsource
