Last week, I applied online for an administrative assistant. The ad did not state that it was a ''temp'' agency.
I received an email from the secretary stating that Carol would not be around until the next week. I told her I was open availability and we booked for a 9:30 appointment. I didn't even know the secretary's last name. She did not give me any contact information.
No last name, phone number, address or their website. I had to google them. I arrived early and filled out the paperwork. Very simple information.
I currently work at Mcdonald's overnights and I am looking for a better position. Carol seemed very angry that I had a ''job'' already and did not want to help me. I had to explain that working overnights means that I have total open availability during the day and I have worked a day job and my overnight job together with no issues. I went to leave and told her I did not like the vibes I received from the receptionist or herself and she tried to make things better.
She said I did not get a call because I applied at a job fair which was not true. As I stated to her, I applied online and she had to check through her applications online to make sure. She said she had a job for the following week and I would need to get my own background check for this. I said I could probably get it from my past job but I called them and they said no.The woman on the phone was quite rude and transferred me to another receptionist when I first called back to say my last job could not give me the background check.
I wonder why it would be a difficult thing for her if shes been in the industry for 30+ years?
I really would not recommend their services. Adecco is bad, but this company is worse.
