Hi William, First off sorry for the crappy run around that company has given you. There is something bigger and better for you. I got a lot of bogus calls and messages from these so called recruiters. I figured if I wanted to find the ideal career for myself I had to do it. No one else. Just keep applying and your head up. I am sure you will find what you are looking for. I did. Good luck to you and God bless.

They want all the resume to come the employment agency does that it is called bite and switch the agency will receive a cut in processing fees also if the statement said so a hour through the company then the company backs down call BBB and report them then file a complaint over unemployment after that put on social media if it to good to be true it a red flag becareful with job if needed contact the state attorney office human right office and files false statements under the agency you went to

Be very careful there are still a lot of companies that does pay slave wages. Which nowadays is an insult to a grown man and woman. If you are in a position not to take it by all means pass ,nobody can live on that nonsense anyway;and the ones that offers you that nonsense know it as well. As I always say no your value and worth so when somebody throw crumbs at you by all means you do not have to Accept it. Keep your dignity God bless you on your journey.

We as American's need to stand up and say NO MORE. The wages are getting lower, and the prices are just going up. This is our Trickle down economics at work, and NOT working very well. The Rich and powerful are NOT sharing their profits, they are increasing their bottom lines by Screwing the little guy's like Us. We MUST stand together and just say NO. I will NOT work for less than minimum wage, and what I made in 1988 is NOT acceptable anymore, as the cost of living just keeps going up. Nothing is trickling down to us. Corporate greed has ruined the middle class in now Amerikkka, and us 99% should scream "Hell NO" We need to be getting paid for our work, and afford to eat at the same time. What is wrong with that request? This is not Socialism, it is a necessity for people to survive. William, do not accept anything less than minimum wage, and don't go backwards. I made more in 1988 for the same profession than I make now. It is because younger people will work for a lot less. We need pay raises now to equal the cost of living. Your hamburger is going up anyway,! WHY? Without them giving raises to their employee's. Stay strong, Stay focused.

Yes a lot of companies do this to get you to come and start at bottom and work your way up or the position was already filled. At least you tried
Hang in there something good is coming your way! Prayers Tracy Texas. Ps and yes it's legal

Yes, I have found that the job fairs do not work and are a waste of time. It is very hard to find a job now adays , the way they have it set up.

Tell them no thanks, I've been to those job fairs you wait and wait to talk to someone if you're lucky you'll get two interviews the whole day. I don't waste my time . I would rather cold call and sell myself.
