Obviously, they are not going to be hiring you to directly work in their building. Do your research before applying for a job. They were interviewing you to see if you were even a viable candidate to expose to other clients that are hiring.
Temp Agency, figure out what it is, then express your opinion on the matter. Do not provide people with false information as if it were a scam. You said you did research? Most staffing firms are full of deceitful recruiters that will say anything to meet their quotas and account reps that will do or say anything to place someone. They are for the most part shallow people that primarily can’t do something so they try to place skilled people to do what they can’t do.
Any company that wants your SSN up front, like RHT, so they can check your age and do a credit check should be avoided at all costs. They make you sign a waiver against any damage they may do to you or your reputation and if they get hacked or leave your application lying around so the cleaning crew can steal your personal information and open up loans or such with your personal information it is tough.

Also, be careful about what you say to recruiters as they move around a lot and if you get burned at RHT this week that recruiter may be working at TEKsystems Kelly or Crescent next week and you’ll be screwed there as well. Moreover, if you have been working with one staffing firm and switch to another expect the old firm to burn you at every one of their clients.
It is as sure as the sun rising in the morning. One day they love you and next day you are hard to get along with and have “personal issues” when they take the client out to lunch or a round of golf. Believe, I have seen it happen. Not a bad idea to pay an law firm a few hundred after you part company with a staffing firm to do a background check with them on your behalf.
Don’t be surprised if they burn you. Do yourself a favor and go through a small staffing company if you can find an honest one. The big nationwide recruiting firms don’t care one bit about you. You are just billable hours, plain and simple. Anonymous in Macon in East Dublin, Georgia. I went on assignment for Robert Half in July of last year. I worked for a rude, nasty manager in a dept at a local collegewho was hardly ever there because she was always on vacation.
After finding out that I was the fifth temp in less than two months, and two former employees were suing the college for hostile work environment because of this woman, I called the temp agency, spoke with the supervisor, and asked to be put on a different assignment. The supervisor attempted to call the office, even though I told him she was on yet another vacation, and when I offered to give him her cell, he refused, and told m e” I wouldn’t worry about it”.
I advised him that I did not want to get a phone call out of the blue stating not to return, because I needed my job. Sure enough, I got a phone call out of the blue, a few days before my 90 day temp to hire date, and told not to return. The supervisor at the job site did not give a reason, and when I advised accountemps that I was trying to avoid this exact situation the supervisor actually got irate with me.
