Lady Sara Kim Of Yorkson



Tom,

If you are worried about people committing suicide, I would suggest that you tell them to stay away from Lady Sara Kim of Yorkson. I heard rumors that she was nasty, but I didn't realize how nasty she was until I recently dealt with her myself. Talk about a Jeckyll and Hyde personality. When she needs you for something, she's all sweet and butter. Most of the time, she's extremely condescending, tries to make you feel guilty for not buying into one of her low ball sewer rates, and will literally hang up on you mid-sentence. Either Yorkson has one of the worst techncial telephone service in NYC history, or the Lady of Yorkson is just an extreme B.

I went to register with her, was handled by her gay receptionist instead as I heard her try to scare some woman into a shitrate. He hit on me, gave me his card, and niether him nor her have ever responded to an email I've sent. What a waste of a trip to that crap office. The waiting area is two chairs in the corner, and the carpet is 30 years old. Lovely.

she has not been nasty to me, but I have seen her behave in a way that I could only describe as counter-productive, and bad for business, and that would be from an agency point of view. From my point of view and opinion, its bizarre and just weird and kinda creepy.
In my dealings with her she has comes off to me as being some thing of stalker type.

Yorkson is very weird.

Not too long ago, I was doing the back and forth with them regarding an upcoming project. Normally, when you aren't selected the agency will send you a follow up. Yorkson however, left me hanging and wouldn't return my calls.

Look, we can bitch all we want and I told my friends of a tale with the infamous Sara Kim where she wrote me to schedule an in-person meeting, but we had already met a month prior.

She never replied with an apology or an acknoledgement that she made an error.

Nonetheless, if she were to call me up for a gig, I would gladly take it. It beats unemployment and why should I fight with the Benjamins, not to mention if you don't take the job, then you are permitting her to come between you and the "bread".

So bitching is one thing and making a living is another.

Of course you have to eat the shit. It doesn't mean you can't bitch and complain about it. This site is 99% bitching. I'm sure you just stumbled upon this site and didn't know better. If not, why are you here?

Recruiter said...

Look at it from our perspective.

Recruiters are like doctors on a battle field. We have to triage who we can employ. While waste time on a phone call for someone who is hopelessly lost?

I've notice that about Koreans also. Why is it that m ost asian people are so non-offensive but the koreans are so fucked up?

The Yuppie Attorney said...

It is unfortunate, but 10:00 AM is right; we need to eat. Eating and rent paying are expensive habits I just can't kick. If the market should recover just avoid Sara Kim. Reread last sentence. You don't need the grief. Right now, it is a buyers market. There is little room to move on our end of the equation.

Remember, just because she is crazy does not make her insane!

The bottom line is that the temp industry is a ghetto industry and you should NOT stay in it long-term because it is very abusive and exploitative - and you will basically LOSE YOUR MIND.
She is just the tip of a very nasty industry.

I just don't think Yorkson has that much work. There used to be a really nice and professional guy there by the name of Chris McGee. I don't know where he went. He always sent an e-mail even if he didn't have anything.

just got cut due to the budget from connecticut document review. i have been here for 10 months. kissing goodbye the $1,000 a week. actually pretty happy for the moment. getting away from the documents will be nice. i am sure i will feel differently in a few weeks after a couple of weeks without a paycheck. but for now, very nice...

no matter how well you do the documents you can never win.. just spending time.. at the end, maybe you come out even.

I saw something about Jamaica last night. Nation of scammers and thugs. Just how they are. End of story. Same for nigerians.
and I agree that slavery was wrong and but shit I think the playing field is more than leveled now. Seems the middle class background take the worst of it no matter what, and as a result we are working poor or educated unemployed.

The rich elite that caused the whole slavery mess and profited from it are as always still immune and doing fine, maybe they can't buy third home, but they are not worrying about next months rent ever. Fuck to hell with the rich elite and to fuck hell with affirmative action crap. We are just fucked in the middle and it is getting narrower.

Does Sara Kim have a J.D.? Is she even a lawyer. You know you have problems when you're being placed by non-lawyers.

why would an attorney be a recruiter?

Anonymous said...

Take a pay cut and try and land something between 40 and 50K where you get substanative experience.

Doc. review has no future unless you speak a weird foreign language. And even then, you'd be better off making less money for a year and then lateraling with the experience. What are you going to do, review docs for the next 20 years of your career. Take the pay cut and make the move to substanative work now, while the economy is fucked up.

Losing a $1000 a week temp job will be the best thing that ever happened to you.

The better run agencies (not that any of them are that well run at the moment) use attorneys as recruiters.

Also, if you look at the recruiters who do lateral placement, the majority are attorneys.

It's scary but JDs do become recruiters. I don't know if Sara Kim has a JD. The famous Ann Isreal of NYLJ is a JD and a high-end recruiter. There is numerous examples of people leaving the legal field to seek more fufilling and or higher paying occupations.

Why wouldn't a J.D. be a recruiter? You can probably make a lot more money at it with a lot less crap to put up with than a shitlaw job. It's not like the J.D. is prestigious anymore, it's just a piece of paper that anyone can get if they're dumb enough to mortgage their life to go to law school. And that goes for the top schools and the folks that did well at lower level schools, too. Point is that law is dead and if you know anyone thinking of law school, do them a favor and tell them to do something else with their life.

It sounds like Sara Kim is just one of those recruiters that doesn't use lubricant (you know, cookies, butt-kissing "we appreciate you guys so much!", and pizza on Fridays) but the outcome is the same - you still get screwed! Doc review is just like that.

I used to work with sara kim. No, she is not an attorney, nor has she ever worked in the legal world, aside from recruiting. She is insane. Seriously bipolar. Sweet one minute, red faced and raging the next. She employs the "if I shout louder, they will think i'm right" method. Avoid her at all costs.

I interviewed with her and she was nice. I never was offered any work from her. Maybe she was just attracted to me.

Yeah, I am sure. Hard to resist a bloated temp.

She was OK to me too. But I never got any work either. Well, other than going to Hicksville, LI, for $15/hr - to which I said I don't get out of bed for less than $16. So that was that.

Anonymous said...

One weird thing about her and a few other recruiters including EP Slime is that they call and leave this totally ENTHUSIASTIC message about some job like they are coming in their pants and will you please call them immediately. I do - leave a message and send an e-mail. But I never hear back. What the fuck bitch - I'd prefer you don't call and orgasm in my phone.

Listen, all you losers who have nothing better to do than blame and complain. I've had positive dealings with Sara Kim. She's one of the few honest and nicest recruiters out there. She not only gave me helpful advice, but also placed me. I've worked with her for years, and I've referred many friends to her as well who have had nothing but kind words to say about her. If I was a client, I wouldn't hire any one of you, no wonder we as contract attorneys have such a bad reputation, it's because of people like you and Tom the Temp who go on these sites and bad mouth people because you can't find work. Get a life! For that matter, get a REAL job. Anybody that complains about not getting calls from a recruiter or feels jilted because they are not returning your calls are losers who should be banned from this business. Grow up you fools and realize that you will not be treated like GODS just because you have a JD and stop blaming people who are only trying to help you find work.

Anonymous said...

I used to work with her too...and the person above who also did, I know who you are, and you were let go so don't hate because you suck as a recruiter and is now working at Slime Dine. Sara's been in this business a decade and has had more success than anyone I know, most recruiters aren't doing half as well in this market. She's a sweetheart and a damn good recruiter. I would hate for all you assholes who are posting negative comments about her or anyone else on this shit site should think twice before we human resource folks unite and start posting actual names of deadbeat temps, I have more than 50 on my list alone, how's that for payback for all your negative comments about recruiters/agencies/firms and their hiring staff. Be warned jerk offs! You could be next.

I would agree, i met her recently, spent 45 minutes, one of the better meetings i've had with a recruiter. She knows her stuff and about this industry in general, found her to be refreshing and doesn't give me the standard line most recruiters give you.

OK here is the skinny on recruiters. They are not doctors not even close. The ones who are lawyers couldnt cut it in the legal field. The truth be told...they are all slave traders in suits!
Most of the time these low lifes just have you come in and fill out an application to justify their existance at their current agency. Be smart! Dont spend the money to see them unless they have a job for you. Most of the temp positions I have had, I never even met the recruiter (loose term) face to face. I have a BS from the ILR school at Cornell. Bet your bottom dollar that most of these individuals have NO clue about HR and apparently they are illiterate boobs who dont even take the time to read your resume. They all suck, they are all the lowest life forms out there. We should all get together and boycott the agencies. If they have no one to do the work they will disappear. Those cheapo law firms will be forced to do the right thing and hire people and give them benefits.

Anonymous said...

She's inconsistent and unprofessional: eager to have you submit a resume for jobs, but then she doesn't respond.

Her job descriptions are poorly written and unreasonable on their face. Want a $30-an-hour job in N.J. with an 8:30 a.m. start time that you can't quit, although no estimated time frame for the assignment is given? Nor are you allowed to take time off.

Excuse me, but everyone on this site who defends Sara Kim or Yorkson Legal is either Sara Kim or someone FROM Yorkson Legal, the worst recruiters in all New York. My experience with them was humiliation followed by insult. I am a professional. There is NOTHING professional about Yorkson or anyone who represents them. Do yourself a favor and send their emails into the "spam" folder.

I registerd with Yorkson and was interviewed by Sara Kim in Jan 2010, and despite my years of paralegal experience in some of the top law firms in NYC, I have yet to receive any assigment from her or Yorkson. She always asks for resumes and I have emailed the fool at least a dozen or more.

Recruiters are useless. They are just as qualified as used car salesmen. C students at best in college at best. Don't mistake you job for a career. Triage? Don't flatter yourself. Your just a paper pusher. Nothing else.

Joey Masterson said...

Excuse the typos. You got my point. Any recruiter who uses the word triage to describe what they do must not be taken seriously. Anyone who has engaged a headhunter to staff up their company knows they are dumb as rocks. They are just good liars. Recruiters are not professionals. Everyone knows that except them.

I had an offer to interview for a Research Specialist position through Yorkson (I am an archivist by trade). The invitation was made mid afternoon last Friday, my acceptance was sent out that afternoon and never responded to. Mid-afternoon Monday, I reiterated my interest and only then was I scheduled for Tuesday at 1:30 with Sara Kim via Skype. 1:30 came and went, and at 1:45 I emailed her secretary reminding them of the interview. I received the following:

"My apologizes but something came up and Ms. Kim had to leave the office. Could we re-schedule for Friday?"


Tell me more about how recruiters are professionals on par with field surgeons on a battlefield? To my mind, the core professional function of a recruiter is to interview and recommend candidates for hire. Sara Kim left her office mid afternoon on a day when she had appointments scheduled with actual professionals with actual trained professional competencies and qualifications, for whom interviewing is merely a precursor to a career rather than their core function, and neglected to notify those who she had previously scheduled interviews with. I didn't want to believe the reputation for Yorkson and Sara Kim this thread reveals while reading up for my "interview" this past weekend, but my experience today fit the bill 110%. Recruiters, specifically Yorkson, are an unprofessional self-justifying racket.

Anonymous said...

Sara Kim is notorious among the people I currently work with--even those who aren't working with/through/under her.

I'm not asking for pizza, benefits, or OT. I just think all people deserve to be treated with respect, and treated as human beings. Not only will she have no problem wasting your time and money and is fine with not calling you back, or calling you at the last possible second after ignoring you for weeks, she's fine with making ludicrous demands and threats (including putting me "on notice" that 1 more tardy and I'm fired, in response to me giving her the exact dates I would be out in observance of a well-known religious holiday. I had been late that day, had spoken with her then, and no such "notice" had been given).

She is a notorious bitch and I will NEVER take a job through her again. I WOULD rather be unemployed if it meant I was treated like a human being. I was treated with more respect when working minimum wage.

Those of you who have had positive dealings with her are lucky exceptions. If you haven't yet had the pleasure, keep it that way.

In other words, STEER CLEAR OF SARA KIM AT YORKSON!!

Anonymous said...

The worst mistake I ever made in my entire career (and I had thought I had made some really bad mistakes) was to ever register with Yorkson. it's actually not Sara herself (though she's borderline schizophrenic), it's the owner of the firm who is completely Dahmeresque - A true sado-masochist who refuses to support his own children (seriously) and who treats his employees as if they were the lowest of low. What you get from Sara is merely a top-down push. If she were anywhere else, she would probably be a nice person. Sad to think how she's messed up her life working at that place.

Sara Kim is a waste of life. She emails you daily, you tell her to submit your resume and she never does and never responds to you. this company is a scam. She is a dirty disgusting slob of a person and when i interviewed with her after hiking to her office, i was there less than 5 minutes. this company should be closed down.
