Clearly this agency is has prejudice against certain ethnic group. I sent my resume and got a call from a woman name Taz not even her real name just a nickname as I found out when I got to office. Anyway this woman name taz talk to me over the phone stating she was impressed by my resume and that she had several Admin assistant assignments available and that I need to come in for an interview. She sounded so enthusiastic and that got my hopes up thinking there was a sure in for a job. When I got there I waited for 30 minute. The receptionists request me to fill-out an online application. I waited for another 30 minute to see her. A few minutes late this other woman comes in and talks to me about 5 minutes and tells we will call you if we have something available. They didn't even test me on my computer skills even though there were other candidates being tested I was well dressed and looked very professional. The only thing I can think of is that they don't like minorities.
