    Let me share my experience with Mindtree quickly...

    Dude approaches me from Linkedin, to find out if i am available for Service Desk role. My 3rd Line contract was running out so i said, due to covid anything goes. I agree and he calls me from India through a voip phone , London number..

    We agree to go forward and he even agreed on outside IR35. He refuses to say who the client is and he arranges a technical interview. The client he said will be revealed there.

    I hop on in the call with another dude after a few days and he goes full technical questioning me on SCCM/AD which where i am an SME. I smash it with flying colors and i ask him why are you interviewing for SCCM ? I was told that the role is 1st/2nd line fully remote... He was just waffling blah blah... BS.. I asked him who his client is and he refused to say. By the way, i knew who he was as the idiot put it on the Teams meeting header.

    So that was 2 months ago. Then the first guy got back to me saying that they are waiting for confirmation from the client for my start day..

    If any of you have heard from them so have i... LOL

      Quantumworld:

      Contact via LinkedIn - persistent. Remote role for large pharma co. Quoted high rate as figured was a ruse.

      1st call - with HCL reps. "technical" questions.
      2nd call - direct with end client.

      Didn't hear back - my rate too high / me being useless a factor.

      Another front for HCL not on list:
      Contact via LinkedIn - persistent. Remote role for large pharma co. Different one. Quoted normal rate.

      1st call - with HCL reps. As above.
      2nd call - direct with end client.

      Contract offer has hit my inbox but I am asking for SDS' now for new contracts and this seems to have confused them. Agent thinks that as client office is based in central Europe that no need. Not withstanding that client has UK presence and agent is also registered in the UK.

              These agencies are vermin.

              I think we need a Linkedin post to spread the love

                  I got contacted by a recruiter with a *gmail* email address.

                  They left a voice mail and I could barely understand it, so I blocked their number and just ignored it.

                  They kept badgering me on linkedin, eventually I caved, and they put me forward for a job. I interviewed, three indian guys gave me a ridiculous technical grilling that was way over anything the role would entail.

                  Apparently, I got the role. The gmail recruiter then asked for info and cc'd in one of the companies on the list posted in a comment above.

                  They're drafting a contract so I should start soon.

                  The whole thing just feels so sketchy. SC role too.

                  I never know what the rates are either. I said one rate, the gmail recruiter said ok then came back to me and said they can only do X.

                  I find that hard to believe but I took the reduced rate, cos it wasn't too bad and I went in pretty high. I expect it's just their standard policy to try and skim some extra off the top, but what are you supposed to say? End of the day it's joe public getting shafted by having a company pay another company which pays another company which uses a dodgy gmail recruiter and doesn't employ a fixed margin contract. If it *was* fixed margin the recruiter would have been telling me the rate.

                  We'll see what happens, I'm not massively chuffed, any work is good in this climate but if I'm plonked into an all-indian dev team working remotely... I guess we'll see.
