I really have to say that I find them really unprofessional to deal with. Maybe there are so many candidates chasing the jobs that the agencies don't have to work for their commissions. I've applied for a few jobs and for a few I've asked for some confirmation or feedback but it typically results in nothing but one-way communication from my end. Has anybody had that experience as well? Right now, I see the agencies as not much better than trying to ask staff at B&Q where I can find products in their stores.

How long does it take to send a confirmation message? 30 seconds at most? I could almost long for the old days when you sent a CV in the post and you had to go to their office while they sifted through the pile of job listings. At lunch time you'd race to the nearest telephone box and call them or they'd arrange to ring the telephone box at an exact time and you'd hope it wasn't occupied by some git with halitosis or a smoker leaving foul odours and spittle on the handset. It wasn't ideal but it usually worked better than it is now with those unprofessional tampons who sit around doing bugger all. Big Grin | :-D
