“Awful agency”

Written on: 31/01/2020

Went for two interviews through this agency. The first was supposedly for someone with VBA.Net and SQL experience when I got an interview with client turned out they were looking for someone with knowledge of RPG. Female consultant blamed it on a mix up on the clients side. Had another interview for a different client through the same agent supposedly for someone with MS Stack experience (SQL Server, SSIS, SSRS, SSAS) turned out the client wanted Oracle and Business Objects. It became obvious talking to second company that the agent had been talking to about my experience to the client and what the client wanted to me. Client reckons she was paid based on how many people she got to interview. She came back with a third interview after I had complained to her about her 'bums on seats' attitude and she assured me that there was a complete match between my skills and what the new (third) client wanted. However once bitten twice shy so I phoned the third clients HR and asked them to confirm my skill set was what they were after. It wasn't. Consequently I pretended I was going and then didn't and third client aware now of what she was doing then made a complaint about her. I took my business else where. After a couple of interviews with the new agency I got one with an Insurance company at 5.00pm. Turned up on time but was kept hanging around until about 6:30pm before being taking up to a floor where most of the lights turned off and only a bloke there. After a short obviously contrived interview I was told he would be in touch. Went down to the lobby to find her sitting there all dolled up with a sweet smile on her face. Left and went to a near by pub for a drink. Sat for a few minutes and saw the guy from the interview come down give her a kiss before they jumped arm in arm into a cab presumably off to a show some where.
