No follow up

I had a recruiter contact me by phone, I returned the call, left two voice message. Even followed up by email, and still no response, I feel the recruiter realized, I was black, and would not respond to my phone call. I have shared my concerns with my twitter and face book family. And they agree, the world and the work place. Should reflect of all people regardless of color. I felt it was totally unprofessional, I have expressed my concerns on twitter and face book, and will also file a complaint with the better business bureau. Racist, Racist, Sad.

Lies, wrongful termination, and sent wages to incorrect state.

I had recently moved to a new city, and was finding it difficult to find employment. The Mergis Group stated they had a temp-to-perm position available. I took the job. The next thing I know, I am receiving notice from the company that all 21 temps were getting their contracts cancelled. I asked, well why, after we have all worked here for so long are you not hiring anyone on permanently. My supervisor responded, well, this is just a temp position, we do not hire permanently in this position. That was the first impossible situation I had to deal with. Then this crack addict that worked with me decided to threaten to stab me. Since there was no supervisor on site, I called security. My staffing agent called me the next day, yelling at me and fired me. I did nothing to that girl, but was told that calling security was too extreme and I could not continue employment with the agency. So, I go to file unemployment just to find out that they reported all my wages to the wrong state. The Mergis Group should not be allowed to be in business.

ITS NORMAL FOR COMPANIES TO TREAT TEMPS THIS WAY. TEMP MEANS TEMP.

THEY DONT HIRE REGULAR EMPLOYEES CAUSE WITH TEMPS THEY ARE LESS LIABLE FOR EVERYTHING AND TEMPS DONT GET FAIR TREATMENT, I AGREE. YOUR TEMP SERVICE SHOULD HAVE INVESTIGATED YOUR COMPLAINT, BUT NOT LET YOU GO.

UNEMPLOYMENT AGENCY SHOULD ALSO HAVE INVESTIGATED YOUR DISMISSAL, TO SEE IF IT WAS YOUR FAULT, IN CASE YOU WOULDN'T BE ENTITLED TO BENEFITS. UNEMPLOYMENT SHOULD HAVE GRANTED YOU A REVIEW OF THE ENTIRE MATTER, AND YOU SHOULD HAVE RECOURSE IF THEY DIDNT..

GOOD LUCK

Well sounds like you had a problem with the company that you were temping at and not the temp agency themselves, and I thought you couldnt collect unemployment if you were fired? Thats the way I always believed it.
