Heads up! There is a new bottom feeding agency in town. The person who is complaining about Wise Counsel is spot on. Although the agencies are all fly by night (on a broomstick), Wise sub-let some tiny rabbit cage space on Third Avenue. They sent me for a total waste interview in Garden City, Long Island at a nothing firm. They then started asking me if I wanted to sub-sub-let some space in their office to operate a private practice. You see, these agencies will find any ways and means to skin you alive. You don't have a job - and they don't have anything for you - so they try to get rent money out of you.
The second of the Big Three has to be Helene Diamond. Every temp has dealt with her agency, Peak, at some point offering the lowest possible rate and the worst jobs, usually in places like Bridgeport, Connecticut with no commuting allowance. (This is a real experience I had with her.)
The third and winner of the Booby Prize goes to Sean Treadwell, who has called every temp but never returns their calls or emails. There is always some non-existent position with him. He wins the resume-collector of the year award. He's just fishing around to see what's out there and to get everyone's resume so he can claim to be their massa'.
The new and up-and-coming power player of the week is Sara Kim of Yorkson, also famous for touting non-existent jobs and being very nasty."
