Can you be more specific?
Did you show up for an interview and find no one was there? The interview was canceled? The job was already filled and they forgot to call and cancel an interview?
Or did you respond to a job posting along with 500+ other people and they haven't called you?

Just the things the receptionists talk about.. candidates etc.
Switching up the jobs etc... we will see how it works out. I've just heard lots of bad things about them and have seen quite a few similarities.

when i was job searching i told them i am looking for a network position , dealing with only network equipment.
They kept on coming back with offers of all around server and network support positions. That is my experience with them.

While I did find RH to be unprofessional. Basically the recruiter told me to come in for an interview, and that he had 3 network engineer jobs for me, well I get there, and all he had was a $16/hr helpdesk job. Not saying there is anything wrong with that job, but that is just not where I am in my career.
Anyway, this guy said he would send all the job descriptions in an email, after calling him and emailing him several times, never heard a peep from him.
But to be fair, while I found other recruiters more communicative, I ended up finding something on my own. and never got one interview through a recruiter.

I was sitting in my boss' office earlier this morning when he received a phone call from Robert Half. He put it on speaker phone and the lady begins to explain that she has a Network Engineer with 10 years experience and all these certs.
He whispers to me that I should clean out my desk, because he is going to hire my replacement. Then she says his rate is $76.45/hr and he hung up on her. I said, so you still want me to pack my ****, because it sounds like he cost 3 times what you are paying me...
Why would one want to go through a recruiter? Doesn't the recruiter get like half of that advertised salary?
Austin @ Robert Half just called me a few minutes ago and told me that he saw my resume on Monster.com and would like to talk. I told him that I would have to call him back when I got off work.
I only posted my resume on Monster to see if I was marketable. Was wondering if I should even call the guy back.
