(i was on probation shortly before things went badly for me with this company)
if i could swear and be taken seriously about these folks i would, i was "blackballed" over a clerical error back in '98 (no-call, no-show that didn't happen). they didn't bother telling me i was ineligible for employment till 2000-03, when i tried to ask them about specific positions. they wouldn't even listen to me when i asked them to contact my past employers. if they had checked my work history, it would have proven my side of the story. i was so frustrated with that person, i hung up before she could finish her sentence.
it's now 2014, and i've never tried to use sedona again, until after i finished school last month. i went looking for something in my career field, or something to carry me over until i found something in my new field. i decided to use them as a resource, i supplied them with an updated copy of my resume, and filled out all the paperwork in order to be placed in an active file, and allow background checks (i had heard there was new management). 2 weeks went by and i had heard nothing of the position that i had applied for, and kept hearing i wasn't registered when i would call weekly. so i stopped into the office while i was out interviewing, and dropping resumes at other companies to find out what was going on. my file had not been updated, and a resume from 07 was in their files. i hadn't even been looking for work in 07, i was happily employed in kansas city, mo at the time. but they "don't make errors like that", that quote from my frustrated argument 12 to 15 years ago is still sticking in my head. if forgiveness is one of the traits next to godliness, i tried, they still clerically screwed me.
they may have more jobs than the others companies paul, but when i am placed with companies that use 2 temp agencies they're always getting AT LEAST 1 dollar less/ hour than i am when we chat. walking away from that company for good, may reduce my chances at being hired in my career field. in the end though, i won't stress over their inability to make mistakes about me any more. there might be things to be left out for brevity, but i think i left in enough for clarity.
