I work for a staffing company and you ae so wrong on this, first of all agencies have many jobs and many posting at many various wages! It's in an agencies best interest to pay more but they are often restricted by the client. Some agencies operate this way, the one that you mentioned is one of the most ethical firms out there. They only work with companies that pay market rates or better! I know this for sure. You may not have the skill set to qualify for higher paying roles and are a little bitter, instead of blogging misleading column, upgrade your skills and you will find a better job. Sorry just the truth.

Your correct most agencies will advertise for position which is open for higher rate, if persons not suited for specific position they will be offered another role for low rate. Technically speaking agency wins the other person loses out to gain a higher wage. The person which commented about this person upgrading their skill set, clearly you work for Randstead doing damage control moderating the comments on this site. Everyone which reads this post remeber everything comes down to money this is typically take advantage.

Randstads standards and screening process Is far superior to Spherion! It's a fact. This is why you may not make the grade this time around. Sorry bud.

It's one of those agencies that does what I call "fishing": they're just trying to increase their "pool" of candidates. They're not really serious about working with you. I know an agency is not necessarily there to get ME a job - it's to fill a client's order. But it's a real waste of time for me when an agency calls me, and I clearly figure out they don't have anything I could really do. They're just trying to make me one of their "swimmers."

I truely agree, I have been registred with Randstad since 2008 and they have never placed me with a job, put in my filed that i;ve been calling in to different location and still they refuse to give me a job.
