Got a call from abcd IT staffing agency.
XYZ is servicing walt Disney. XYZ is looking for network engineer. Abcd told me it is a contract to hire but cant give me that word in the offer letter.

Got a call from efgh IT staffing agency. XYZ is looking for network engineer. 7 months contract. It is for Disney.

    So many variables involved here. Is one offering corp to corp, 1099, direct hire, Contract to hire, benefits? If so what are they offering? Your presenting such a small fraction of the needed information and asking for a detailed analysis of the situation, its beyond funny.

    Some companies are going to try and low ball you either way others will try to get the most money for both parties involved. Its all over when you sign the non-compete or right to represent with the body shop of your choice. Choose wisely. icon_surprised.gif

    Sounds like ABC is "over-promising" and also taking a Larger cut than the other contract house.

    I would go with the other vendor who's paying $10 more.

    7 month contract could be Great... or Not; really depends on your preference/situation.

    Personally, i seriously doubt that Disney is doing any Contract-to-Hire.
    Their @ss is in the news for getting SUED for unlawful H1-B practices.

    You're probably NOT gonna have a long fruitful career at Disney; but maybe it's good experience(?).

    b/eads is right:
    Beware the Non-compete agreement.
