Lies and the Lying Liars who Lie like Lying Dogs:

How to get dropped by your agency:

1. Show up on time to your assignment, do what the client asks you to do.
2. Have a friendly demeanor in spite of client ignorance
3. Always inform those of when you go to lunch, home, etc.
4. Always dress professionally.
5. Do all your work, then ask to do more
6. Be technically proficient

I guarantee you, if you follow those six-steps with Quantum, you will be dropped because no matter how you do at your job, they only listen to the client.

I was working at Ross Stores in the human resources department, it was to be a temp-to-perm assignment... I'm not an HR professional, mind you, but this job a monkey could have done! I was looking for an easy perm job that i could do in my sleep, but apprarently, Ross Stores came to the conclusion that I wasn't the person who would be willing to do this job, so rather than asking me if I was interested in it, they called my agent, Alex, and said I had made several errors, when in fact, I made none, then they said I showed no interest in becoming full-time, even though they did not say two words to me the entire time I was conversations, nothing! Alex then said I lost it because of my irresponsibility, yet when i worked with Boston Consulting for four months, they had rave reviews for me...Quantum are liars, they are dirty, stinking liars...

They have not been independently verified, so there is nothing to stop someone from posting a pack of lies. Some agencies with great reviews may be really bad, and some agencies with bad reviews may be really great. As with everything online, be careful and don't believe everything you read.
