This is why when I listed with a "temp" agency I told them NO temp work, only temp-to-hire with a stated time frame ... Usually 90 days.

You tell them "anything" that is exactly what you are going to get.

I had NO problem being placed.

Temp services are temporary! Yes they can lead to permanent work , but rarely. Do not pay them ever up front for anything! Yes they lie, yes they cheat. Yes they have people fill all kinds of paper work out just add to their pile. Now not all companies are bad .You need to ask around. The ones who usually do have work send you to places that are awful and can't keep anyone because of working conditions. Could be too hot and dirty, no place to rest at break time, rude leads and bosses, no water close by when you need it. Temp companies make money off of you. You have to work to pay for drug tests and background tests. They get that from you out of your check soon as possible. If you drug test and change your mind they just write you off. No you won't get a bill, as far as background check I'm sure they wait a few days to make sure you've earned enough to take out of your check. If your sick of these lying blood suckers I suggest you go on line somewhere find out who your Senator is for your district and complain. Keep it short and to the point get your dictionary if needed. BE PROFFESSIONAL! People are going to have problems with having health coverage. The insurance with some temp agencies is terrible and costly. There are companies who use temps daily for years and that's wrong.
