They dont pay timely - must not know laws

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TalentBurst as a contractor for less than a year

ProsPeople I dealt with were actually nice

ConsI worked at a client site for 4 weeks. I was paid 3 weeks and my final week it took 2 months to get paid and then shorted 8 hours which took an additional month. Sooooo - file a claim with your states Labor Board. Then they will have to pay you alot of $$$$$ for being idiots. They now owe me about 11x what they owed me in penalties. I dont get why these would put themselves in this position?? Fools

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you dont have the money to pay your contractors then shut your doors and stop messing with people livelihoods.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have personally investigated the allegations in your review, the time that is in question was NOT approved by our client and was unverified.

Once these hours were approved, we paid you ... More

Very unprofessional and rude

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TalentBurst

ProsNone, seriously none at all

Cons-Salesman like attitude of recruiters
-Think of candidates as if candidates need them to sell them to hiring companies

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to train your recruiters to talk professionally. Don't behave as if you are paying candidates from out of your pocket.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Abysmal

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TalentBurst as a contractor for less than a year

ProsI can't think of a single positive which came out of that working relationship. The saying about lying down with dogs and waking up with fleas comes to mind.

ConsPushy recruiters, slave-labor management and incompetent HR. You are a walking invoice for them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A Terrible Company To Work For

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TalentBurst as a contractor for less than a year

ProsWho wrote these positive reviews? Are we talking about the same company? The positive reviews must all be staffers.

ConsWill not return phone calls regarding long overdue contractor payments. Unprofessional accounting staff that lie and mislead contractors regarding payments.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay Your Bills!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

terrible experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TalentBurst as a contractor for more than a year

Prosnever work with company as you will never be paid.

Conspayment is a very big problem and you will get your payment on time. there was a delay of 3 months payment to my employer.
Have to call several times when we try to reach regarding payment, the answer would be the check has been mailed so that will give them 3 to 5 days breathing space.
Absolutely no response.
Totally unprofessional staff who will never respond to emails or calls.
