Advice to Management
When you lay personnel off and promised to re-call when their jobs are back on line, then follow through. Do not post their jobs the next week and not bother calling that employee.
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at BAE Systems UK (Houston, TX).
I started as a temporary employee; the job was supposed to last no longer than 2 weeks. The company contacted the employment agency and asked for me to be hired permanently. The original company was Stewart & Stevenson; bought by Armor Holdings in 2004: bought by BAE Systems in 2005. The initial hiring process was very easy. Once inside the company, I only had to interview for the position of the President's secretary; the other promotions were due to education.
I was happy to get a job back in 1987 when I took this temporary job; I did not ask any questions regarding salary, vacation, etc.
