Deceptive Practices

Why do job agencies like The Skill Bureau put people through the ringer before they even talk about jobs? I completed tests (Microsoft Word and typing speed/accuracy) prior to my appointment, completed approximately 8 pages of application material, and was subjected to a lengthy interview before I was informed about the position I originally applied for.

And here's the clincher -- the position as described in the Craigslist ad was nothing like the real position that was available. I've noticed that some job agencies tend to do what it takes to get people into their offices and then, like The Skill Bureau, don't deliver.

To make matters worse, the fellow had forgotten our appointment and then claimed that I didn't follow through by submitting my resume and required tests. After a few minutes perusing his email he found what he needed. NO MORE JOB AGENCIES FOR ME!
