    Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Telephone, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Computer Aid (Telephone, TX) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I found the job via online and contacted the temp agency recruiter that posted it in Florida. He did a basic phone interview and then setup a phone interview with Computer Aid. The questions were fine and mostly covered my background and knowledge of the software. Shortly after I was offered the job and accepted it. I given a contract that I signed and went to take my urine test. I put in my two weeks notice at my current job and since this position was in Allentown PE and I am out of Oklahoma I started packing up and found a room to rent online. I paid $30 for a background check for the renter and with 4 days left before my starting day I went online to book my flight. Luckily I checked my e-mail and there was an e-mail from the temp agency recruiter who said that I cannot work at Computer Aid because of a credit check they did on me. (back in 2014 when I was going through a divorce, my wife that was living at the family home without decided to to keep the monthly credit card payments and my student loan I was having her pay online. I never even knew about it until several years later when I went to have one of credit companies send me a new card that I could use. During that time the credit companies got judgements against me that I had on clue had happened. So naturally I was so upset that I thought I wouldn't be liable so another 2 years of legal help and research went by that I came to my answer that I would have to pay for them so I have the ones that were not written off down to about $6,000 and my student loan down to about $8,000). The gentlemen that I interviewed with at CAI was really nice and was left in the dark on the whole thing. It really hurt me emotionally and financially. I didn't have a job after I had put my notice in to quit and after years of being responsible I got punished severally because of a small window where I made a mistake. It wasn't like I was going to be handling money, I understand that. But for a systems job. It should be illegal.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I applied to a job on-line through this consulting firm and was treated horribly. First the recruiter ignored my application. Then when a higher authority forced her to contact me, she was hostile, belligerent, argumentative, abusive and belittling. She acted like she hated me. And no, I don’t know her. She made absolutely no attempt to treat me like a job candidate, let alone a human being. She promised to submit me to the client immediately and to have an answer from the client in a couple of days. Instead, she tried to ghost me. After a few days passed from the day she was supposed to tell me if I had an interview, she still had not called me back. In order to avoid her negative energy, and because I assumed she would not pick-up the phone if I called because of her negative and hostile attitude, I sent her a brief email. She responded that “we decided not to submit you” out of the blue with no explanation. It was like I was irrelevant and I should just go away. The higher authority that I spoke to previously refused to reprimand this recruiter for her behavior or correctly submit me to the client as promised. The recruiter lied and blocked me from a job. The worst part of this is that it is clear that this firm does a disservice to their clients (the people paying the bill) by not submitting the most qualified candidates because they are following their own agenda. And the clients don’t know that they too are being cheated.
    When I thought about it, I remembered that I had been warned to stay away from Computer Aid as far back as 1999. It was common knowledge that they had the lowest consulting rates in the area. If you want to work for them, you have to take $10 to $15 per hour less than the market rate. (They forced me to take $10 less than my regular rate. But I think they were trying for $20 less.) Or they won’t use you. We think that their game is to pay everyone less so that they can increase their profits. Or they might think they can win by underbidding, which hurts they person who is actually doing the work the most. Not fair.
