For those that have followed me for awhile, you’ll know my hatred for all things job agencies. If there’s only one thing worse than signing on for jobseekers allowance, it’s signing up to an agency.
Granted not all of them are bad, one of them had actually treated me quite well over the years I was in need of work but then there’s others that just don’t give a shit about you. It’s blatent that they don’t give a shit about you as well.
One agency I actually registered with five times. My sister in laws friend told me how hard of a job it is as she too used to work in recruitment. It wasn’t until recently when I found one of her business cards in my a box somewhere in my room meaning that I had dealt with her before and she too was one of the bitches that never even bothered to give me a call.
Then there’s this one guy where he tells my friends about job opportunities going so when I apply he asks me to send him a CV despite the fact I’d sent him one a month prior after he hadn’t phoned me back regarding an interview I had with a bank because I hadn’t passed so obviously didn’t have the courtesy to let me know.
Send him my CV and then never gets back to me again. Then he has the absolute nerve to send me this e-mail:
I hope you are well and had a good bank holiday weekend.
I am currently looking for a number of good salespeople for permanent roles based in Sheffield City Centre.
Do you know of anyone who may be interested in these roles?
If you do, email me their contact details, I will call them and for any referral who is successful in gaining employment I will give you £30 in vouchers. Therefore if you recommend 5 successful people you would earn £150!
Any questions, give me a call.
Yeah I’ve got a question you ginger bald headed cunt. How about offering me a fucking job? How shit must this job be if they’re bribing people to give them peoples contact details. Obviously they’ve pissed off that many people no one wants to go with his agency anymore. I don’t blame them. Even if I did give him someones details and they were successful I highly doubt I’d ever even see a £1 gift voucher.
No thanks to you I am a manager of a large outdoor leisure company and I did that with my own hard work and my own initiative. You don’t deserve to even hold my e-mail address let alone use it to try and bribe me to let you screw over my friends.
Take your job opportunities and shove them up your ass.
