There may also be a non-compete, non-disclosure that they will ask you to sign. If you are accessing someone's company information electronically (even as a contractor) - there is a lot of liability.

I don't recommend RHT to any of my friends. They are simply incompetent to find you a good job especially in IT field here in DFW. I know multiple people who share the same feeling about RTH.

Too many junk openings on their table to advertise but real openings are very few. One hand in the company does not know what other hand is doing.

There are many other better small recruiting firms are out there with more dedicated staff and work hard to get you a job without wasting your time.

FYI, my brother in law got a job in mid-2013 and RTH contacted him for one of IT position which he did not get any interview call. RTH is still calling him once in every couple of months to advertise some other positions. He asked RTH numerous times to remove his name from available candidates, but like I said their ducks are not placed properly.

To your original question...... give SSN only where you feel comfortable. I have always given my SSN to recruiting firm or direct employer only when I am asked for an interview, but never gave just submit my application to them.

Thanks for the response guys. I don't believe in giving out ssn just to get submitted either. Several recs try to market the same position, so I could easily get submitted through another firm without these hassle I assume.

Few Years back a RHT rec called me for an interview. I got all excited and dressed up in a suite and went to her office in downtown. Paid the parking fee out of my pocket. Turned out there was no opening, she just wanted to see how presentable I am. Wth. Her reason being some guy whom she recruited showed up in t shirt, jeans, sneakers for the interview with the client. She was testing me. Also she asked to fill out the freakin application so they could call in case some thing comes up. I was newbie, so I believed her and gave the info. Never heard back from her again. That's when I stopped having interview with recs. they don't decide if I'm hirable or not,but the clients do. These folks are just keyword searchers, who don't have a basic clue about what I do or my skill set is other than what I have in my resume. They could just let the interviewee know how to dress up. I always ask before I show up for interviews as it differs between companies.

Once in a while I still get called for these type of interviews which I avoid by saying that I'm busy. Immediately they respond saying they need to come to meet a client in my locality and hence could meet at a nearby Starbucks according to my convenience. PERFECT.
These folks are just a quick way to get your resume submitted to client, other than that doesn't worth your time, atleast from my experience.
