    Even had one who send an arsey email saying I couldn't continue unless I opted out. Then is the time to ignore/screen calls. They are not going to drag you out of a client just because you refuse to opt out. Ignore them.

    So isn't that kind of behaviour harassment or bullying behaviour by an agency ?

    It's doing businesses. Not good business to be fair but business. They want to get their way, you don't want it so act accordingly.

    I guess if you are a wilting wall flower unable to handle hardnosed business then I guess you could see it as that. If you do see it as that it might be best not mentioning it so your peers don't think you are a wet lettuce. HTH

    Default Incompetence has a name.

    From personal experience, I would recommend you not to work for ITECH Consulting AG from Baar (Switzerland)

    Experience tells me that all agencies have some idiots and some good 'uns.
    I finished a 6 month gig with Tek/Allegis this year, no complaints at all, I don't recognise any of the foregoing issues myself. TBH the agent based in the M/cr office was one of the best I have dealt with.
