Why do we have Job Agencies? They don't help you or the company.
You ask for $10.00 dollars an hour. Just to feed your family and to fill that position. The job agency wants $14.00 dollars an hour from the company... That's why it's very hard to find a job.
All the Job Agencies are charging the companies more money. Especially AEROTEK Staffing in Northridge Ca. I have been with Aerotek for 5 months they have not done anything for me. I've call the company 10 times, and left messages, that there was a job that I would like to apply for.
They never called me back. All Job Agencies wait and wait until "they" get that money they want from the Company. By then you have lost everything. They have all the jobs locked in to them.
That's why there are still a lot of unemployed workers. Do to the Agencies. "We take what ever we can get." We Have to qualify for them before they send are resume out to a company. We don't need them.
Jobs have past me by; that I have the skills to do. AEROTEK never tried to contact me in any way. Imagine the other unemployed workers they didn't call. I believe that if a company would put their job openings in the news paper or on the internet there would be more jobs been filled.
A least we would have a 50% chance that the Company would call.
Using an Agency there is only a 1% chance that a company would call. I say get rid of all job Agencies.
