Did i say i HATE temporary employment agencies?

Currently employed by one *puke* but it was the only way to get into a fairly reputable company locally so i get on the band wagon.. I get a job that requires no real skills *unskilled labor* and there i am.. A couple weeks ago the plant has a meeting stating that a particular department is being shipped elsewhere. They also stated *temps* would be first to go*.

So i'm like, "Ok i need to consider looking for another job regardless. Preferably in a position that uses my skilled talents. So i go to this temp service after work today and say, "Your online site has some jobs up that are up my alley in the skilled labor department. What am i told?..

You have to quit your current job with us first to even be considered for the job you actually want. * Blood pressure boils*.. I'm like you gotta be fucking crazy. If i quit and don't get the job I'm not only out of a job i don't qualify for unemployment either if i don't get the job now do I?

What a fucking crock of shit. All temp services do is provide low wage labor employees to companies that don't have to provide benefits to those lower wage employees. Again what the fuck happened to applying at the door of a company. Why must i go thought and employment contractor sheesh..

Sorry but that pissed me off when i was told that earlier.

I truly understand this one.. went through the same battle for a few months.. could not for the life of me get to the person that was doing the hiring.. Had to leave my resume with a gum smcking, short skirt,kid that was a temp at a temp agency.. sheesh.. so if she did not like my shoes.. My resume would end up under her cosmo.
Its very difficult and as silly as it may sound I think the state employment need to get a lil envolved on how this is regulated...

just net work.. let every one know .. your in search of employment.

good luck and don't give up
