I have been working at Ab Ovo full-time
- Good project - Many clients - salary on time
- nothing as of now
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ab Ovo (Santa Clara, CA).
Pushy, uninformed, unprofessional recruiter - asked questions only about my ability to do the job. Recruiter's manager got involved, and told me what I wanted to hear. Interview process was quick--I wanted to move to the Bay Area and this was a perfect job.
Bait & Switch - the initial offer was for $49/hr. After the 2nd interview, at which point they offered, and I accepted, the recruiter's manager called me back and said he "had to check with their HR director, because the client had budgetary issues." They wanted me to move up to Northern California, but at a greatly reduced rate. I used to work for a staffing company so it seemed fishy to me. I insisted on the original offer--the conversation was not only unprofessional, it was very unpleasant. I wanted to work at the company where they were placing me, and they finally honored their original offer. After I started working at that company, I found out later that this job had exceedingly high turnover, and soon understood why.
