Another Dissappointing Temp Agency
I'm starting to think all these temp agencies are a complete JOKE and WASTE of TIME!! Eastridge is NO exception! I visited their website and discovered 2 job openings which I was a suitable candidate for, having significant experience in BOTH jobs! The first job I held the exact same position ten years ago. I went to the Eastridge branch in Mira Mesa near my house, dressed impeccably with a nice resume and letters of appreciation from previous employers. I spoke to the gatekeeper, a young girl who made me fill out the questionaire form where I stated the two jobs I was applying for and one of the questions was ""have you had experience within the last six months in this position?"" The answer is ""no"", but just because I hadn't done that type of work within 6 months, how does that negate my experience? These jobs were not rocket science, they were Machine Operator and Injection Machine Operator. This is complet B.S.! Just another ""out"" or lame excuse for them to cover their rearend and not place people. The girl went into some scripted spiel about ""entry level"" and ""if we have an opening"" and ""you don't meet the qualifications"". Quite annoyed and frustrated, I handed her my ""kit"" of resume and 6 attached letters of mert, awards, etc. and asked her to please give it to one of the account reps, thanked her for her time and walked out. It'll be a MIRACLE if I hear back from them! They're just another agency in a long list that act and behave the same way! These temp agencies are horrible!
