Not employed employment

Post by 503Depressed on Tue Mar 29, 2011 1:52 pm

I don't know if any of you have experienced this situation.

Several weeks ago, I was "hired" by an out-of-state company as a PC Tech. What I was told I would be doing, is going into banks to replace their computer hardware and external bank specific peripherals. The pay rate was $14.00/hr which isn't too bad. It took me several weeks to go through all their hoops, mostly because the Manager was slow about getting stuff emailed out. After I had completed their the bank's training material and had sent back my answers, I called within a weeks time to find out what was holding up getting assigned to a team. Well, the Manager stated that I would be called by the local lead to be put on a team. I waited a couple days, called the Manager back and was told that the lead's workload had changed. I waited a week and then called the Manager back, and was told that the bank had changed their rules and had limited how many techs could be used.

Essentially, I was led down the garden path and was lied to about having a job. That company is acting like a Temp agency. Have you come in and interview for a job, go through the drug test and payroll stuff, but never actually do anything that would require them to pay you. I feel like such a puppet on a string. MAD

Go through all the hiring routine and still not be working. I hate companies that lead someone to think they have a job, when in actually it is all a pack of lies!!! mad

Company called Netwiew.....or Team Netview. Might have to write them up for promising work, putting you through the paces and then not providing work.

I am so sorry 503, that is horrible and cruel to do to someone. I have heard of this type of thing happening before. It should be against the law.

I hate temp agencies. I have never had a good experience with them. My roommate loves them and says they have so much work right now but she has a lot of experience being an administrative assistant and that is kind of what they have.
