The Candidates

Based on some of your comments over the past year, here are some of the candidates for "Sleazy Recruiter Of The Year Award" in no particular order:

Wanda Lin and Elizabeth Cass
get my vote for horrible recruiters of the year. Indeed, they believe very much that they are primadonnas. Deal with these characters at your own risk!

Eileen Lamboy. Eileen is the witch! Eileen is the witch! Those NYC Update Legal Stepford Wives are the worst!

Allan Cohen, because he pretends to be on your side. Check his horns....

As a naive law grad, Andrew Rider stuck me at Milberg without informing me that defense firms discriminate and will blackball anyone who has worked at a major plaintiff's firm.

Julie Dailey and Lauren Gibson have a scheme to get the McCarter people to work more hours? They keep missing deadlines, so they are bribing people to work more hours-- $7.50 an hour extra for every hour past 55-- $15 for every hour past 70. People who bill the most are entered into a drawing to win a free TV!!! Isn't there something unseemly about all that? Another person made the mistake of being honest with them. He had done a previous job with Morgan through Hudson, so they pulled out the non-compete clause of his contract, and Morgan withdrew the offer. He then was forced to take a job for Hudson at the cesspool that is the McCarter/Seroquel project.

Yeah, what's up with Sean Treadwell? He used to be a cool guy but recently sent me some very scathing e-mails...after I couldn't finish the project. It's Treadwell's (and FrankenDine's) bald-faced lying over and over again to temps about pay rates and hours that get their names sullied about on this blog. Where there's smoke, there's a fire.

I nominate fake blonde "Jenn from Hudson" who is rumored to have replaced Julie Z. / Napolean. She oversaw the firing of a whistleblower and attempted to put a sock in the rest of the lot through jumbo bagels. Some of those people flocked to the bagels like Pavlov's salivating dogs and remain part of the Hudson/Hughes Hubbard psych experiment.

ONE EXIT ON THE FAR END OF THE ROOM, WITH THE OTHER EXIT ON THE OTHER
END OF THE ROOM LOCKED UNTIL THE FIRE DEP'T CAME ON TUESDAY TO FORCE
DICKHEAD OSMAN TO UNLOCK IT. ONLY ONE CONCLUSION: LEXOLUTION BELIEVES TEMPS ARE ALSO WITCHES AND WANTS TO ROAST THEM!!! YUM YUM!! TEMPS ARE TASTY!

I am serious. Scott Krowitz crowded fifty eight people into a room on top of each other with only one exit. The fire marshals came and would have shut down the place but for the fact that Lex was able to open up another exit in the back of the room by removing a segment of a wall. We were told not to show up today until 10am because they had electrical problems. Overcrowding and electrical problems-recipe for disaster? Scott Krowitz also trolls the toilet schools proclaiming what a great "opportunity" legal temping is.

Aunt Tom Kim Powe makes $100K+ a year for serving house Massas Krowitz and Osman. I guess it's true that house slaves are better treated than those picking the cotton.

Sean Curtin, the guy that was at De Novo who locked horns with Evelyn Louie, and who now works at a no name agency.

Sandrene Ryan at DeNovo will put a curse on you!

Captain Julie Zuckerberg can only scream and yell from the shore in a vain attempt to intimidate and distract them, and get Quinn Emanuel to switch agencies once again, this time to Hudson.

Carrie Cheskin at EPSlim/Frankendine is the witch!

Denise Fischler will call you up at a funeral and will tell you off.

Is there anyone who is honest, respectable, well-liked, etc.? There must be one, in addition to that rogues' gallery.

what is everybody scared now to post ... come on people.... bring the truth.....

the recruiters now the deal.. no hard feelings... everybody is part of the law school scam....

Great list - but there has to be some more Philly recruiters there, such as Danielle Katz from Update..

Sean drank too much but was generally a nice guy

I have to say the "Auntie Tom" reference to Kim Powe at Lexolution is pretty low. I have been placed by her a number and have always found her to be very pleasant to deal with. That's more than can be said for the others I've encountered that appear on your "sh**list".

Anonymous said...

I agree with 11:37, Kim Powe is a decent person and, while not meaning to damn with faint praise, is head and shoulders above those nasty and deceitful strumpets at Update, who make it a habit of stringing people along with a "guaranteed" spot for weeks, then when the job falls through, they suddenly don't know you, and blacklist you if you intimate that they should feel obliged to find you a spot because you turned down other offers waiting for that "definite" gig.
There is a certain sleaziness built into this type of work, but trust me, Kim Powe is one of the better folks to deal with (although this may not be true of her colleagues/superiors at Lex.)

This website tells a story so bleak it makes me want to kill myself. Is it really this hopeless?

why is the shifty allan cohen not on the vote options, that piece of shit.

dear 3:18 pm....

take it with a gain of salt.. bleak is accurate word... one has to make their own deals... law school doesn't teach one how to play the game... just books...

SACULA said...

It's not about who is the worst temp recruiter but rather, its about who has the largest nutsack in the room. Figure that out and the rest is cream cheese.

Dre said...

Gotta let your nuts hang.

Wow, nut-hangers - Kroshitz is making an Obamaesque run for the title....

He sure is....and the rates keep going down. Thank you to all the sleazy companies taking our jobs overseas and making licensed attorneys compete with foreign attorneys in distant lands!

Could we please keep the anti-Semitism off this site? It's already ruined that JDUnderground site.

The only DeNovo or ex DeNovo people who deserve to be on this list is Evelyn Louie. Sandrene is a hardworking young woman just trying to do her job swimming in a shark tank. Sean Curtin was wise enough to leave that skank Evelyn behind.

Anonymous said...

Sean Curtin does NOT belong on the list. You oughta have your head examined for including him there as he is generally, a temp staffer's recruiter. He looks out for the staffer, mediates disputes on job sites, baby sits the problem children who get on a project, and will also take you out for drinks when the project is going well and folks are productive.

Sean knows the industry inside and out - he got the shaft at De Novo when the original owners were bought out - but he has landed at DFW (Midtown East). Clients like Sean because he is good at placing the right people on the right projects and delivering effective output in an efficient manner. Staffers like Sean because he "has their back."

To conclude, I disagree with Sean Curtin's inclusion on the list.

Sean Curtin's name should be removed from this list. He is the best recruiter I have worked with and has always done the best for me.

Will the real slave driver please stand up? EVELYN LOUIE

Anonymous said...

Do you know how you can tell that Julie Dailey is lying? Her lips are moving.
She is the bottom of the heap in terms of ethical and professional (allegedly) recruiters. She would sell her mother for another placement. How does she look at herself in the morning, lying to all of these people about working conditions, hours, and other jobs? She makes many promises, but never keeps any of them, and when you corner her on her lies, she doesnt answer the phone or email. I hope Hudson is happy that they have the worst rep.

11:01- get over it. you are most likely an overbilling temp loser, is why no one wants to call you back. if you were a viable attorney, you'd get calls back from every agency like I do. only the undesirables get nothing.

Anonymous said...

9:05 - try again, I am actually a former temp who was hired fulltime, so pi$$ off to you. Keep waiting by the phone for those calls...

Sean Curtin is a DICKHEAD and I hope and pray Sandrene and her huge Jamiacan butt will sit on him and end his miserable life!

Kim Powe is evil. She would saunter into our crowded room, lie through her teeth by insisting that the assignment would continue for weeks, smugly grin at us, walk out of the room with her dusty cape flapping behind her and then arbitrarily fire 1/3 of the people on the project. This happened a total of 3 times on what was supposed to be a 2-month project. Ultimately, the project ended in 1 month. After weeks of lying to us, we received a "surprise" lunch and at 6:15pm Kim came in (with the first genuine smile I'd seen on her face) and announced the project was over. E-V-I-L.

3:54 - Are you aware Julie has a hairy chest? At least that is the rumor.

Sean Curtin is probably the only decent recruiter I've ever encountered. Not many out there you can trust, just a shame he got the shaft at DeNovo.

Man I thought I have too much time...its a shame that some people have so much time on their hands that they end up whining and complaining on a blog of all sorts, while wasting other peoples money. If you have anything rude to say about Sean Curtin meet me outside of Grand Central Terminal and I will set you straight..
All in all Sean's a good guy, if you can't take it, then you were raised by nun's in a dark corner of the world, in the real world people have brains and intelligence, this isn't WoW or the world most of you wanna be lawyers live in....if only the the company you "worked" for knew that you spent all this time complaining on a blog hiding behind a screen...its a shame....and to the women....be glad that you can get a job, because most of you look like you should stay home, you know why fat woman are not on top of the economy food chain? because you would crush it!

Go Rangers.

Wow, first time here - I HAD to vote for Julie Dailey - she is the swarmiest in Philly. She pulled out the no-compete clause for someone who worked for Hudson for 3+ years, and that person had to turn down a better opportuntiy despite being 11 1/2 months into the 12 month non-compete clause. She is truly classless...Her cohort in the scummy schemes, Lauren, while hot, is also a nasty lady too...but the way she flaunts those legs...sorry, but I think if she wasnt nice to look at, she would not have any clients.

Anonymous said...

I agree with 8:30 on two issues:(besides the fact that Lauren has amaaaaazing legs), Julie Dailey is terrible AND that sex sells.

Sean was asked to leave De Novo because he was a worthless drunk.

Tim - not for nothing, but your profile is set to private too, asswipe.

I have had the great pleasure of getting to know Sean Curtin both on a professional and personal level. Here's the truth, Sean does like to drink but he is not a lowlife drunk. In fact, he is one of the most ambitious people I have ever known. He has always been a team player and supports the underdog. This will get anyone in trouble. In the world of dog eat dog and cut throat egocentrics those who stand behind the underdogs and have a sense of ethics...well they always get a bad rap. Sweatshops of any kind should and will eventually be brought down. Sean Curtin is a loyal employee but, if loyalty means dropping the ball on his clients he will get "the shaft" because his loyalty to his clients matters most.
Sean has accomplished many things in his lifetime and if he pissed you off because he told you where to stick it well, all I can say I would do what he says if i were you because he does know what he is doing and he does it well.

I used to fowrk for Hudson and I actually enjoyed it there. I won tickets to a baseball game and we had our meals paid for when we stayed late or when we came in during the weekends.
