In recent months my boyfriend has been searching for new employment. He works in the construction industry. More over with industrial and homes, such as mirrors, shower doors, electrical, carpentry, etc. He worked for a temp agency for a few months who claimed they have jobs for him. He of course kept in contact with them and I added to his resume the recent position held with their company working electrical for a storage unit. Okay, so no one replies. Even the company who hired this agency told him he was taking him and then they weren’t. Seriously people, don’t say it if you don’t mean it! Men and women are counting on a job to become permanent, etc. They are feeding themselves, paying rent/ mortgages, etc. So he ends up going on interviews, bam one after the other one with his resume. Okay, gets a call on a Friday and gets hired. Well, this company was going to start work either Monday or Tuesday, rain day so Wednesday was cancelled. Whatever, right?! Next thing you know he goes in to work a job on Thursday, it is a half day job. Well, did they not say full-time? No calls for a week about times. This company sends text messages at night when and where to show up at ridiculous hours at night. Well, he went on another interview, was told he was hired and the latest he would start is this coming Monday. He filled out all the paperwork, did the drug test, etc. So you fill out all the work to aggravate your hand? No thank you!! Never heard back. The guy who runs this place, (also a temp agency) does not return calls.
I know this is lots of mush back and forth here. But I agree with him that there are red flags. Is this how you should run your businesses? I am not saying his name or the business names. I do not want to lose his chance at either job. But really so wrong on either level. These are jobs I have prayed for him and he even prayed for.
My message is very clear, I hope and pray for ALL of you out there searching for the right job. I hope and pray that you do not get scammed out of getting paid or anything. I really hope this companies are just new and growing and just taking time to hit off with them. But when you start a business of your own, it takes guts and glory from what I have seen and heard. I give you all my best in your journey of hope and security with a decent paying job to pay for your life.
