Telling an employment agency to take me off their list FOREVERE!!!!
Is this a smart thing to do when you have had it with the agency because they are no good or is it career search suiside, since it apperars they use all kinds of job boards to recruit with out it being obvious to the job seeker.
There is a placement/ temp agency I have been dealing with over the past year and they are just no good either at what they do or at working out in any way to my benefit.
I don't want to deal with them any more, ever again, but I am on thier books and they contact me with jobs. I ignore the emails and wnatto tell them to take out of their system, to not contact me about any more job assignments or perm positions, and to basically F off, but low and behold, I respond to a job posting on craigslist.com and they contact me back about it!!!!!
There was no indication that they are the ones handling the interviewing or hiring process for the job, had I known that I would not have replied, so, my question is, if I tell them to never contact me again will it make my job search even harder since clearly that will knock out some of the positions suited to me on various sites, like careerbuilder.com, since they use them as well and indeed.com.
So annoying!!! I think on one hand, if they are representing these companies and these positions then I don't want it anyway, because if that's the only way these companies are hiring, it's not worth the crappy nonsense and aggravation of dealing with this employment agency (lies about payment and appointment status among many other things) to apply. Nothing has ever worked out for me with this agency. I have paid out way more money to work for them than I have ever made and they misinform and with hold information from the employee constantly. I just don't even want my name in their system anymore because I don't even want to be associated with their company. God knows what the clients think of them when all is said and done.
Any tips on avoiding employment agencies/ recruiters, or even getting them out of your life completely, while looking for real work directly with good companies (minus the annoying ass and meddlesome employment agency people that only want their money and F everyone else).
