    ok......

    I agree with you, I said the same things with slightly worse English was called racist. This forum is trash.

    This post is fundamentally racist. OP said he doesnt' want to be represented by the Indians that contacted him because they don't look professional.... just because their English isn't good.

    Other people claiming that Indians just say yes all of the time. Some guy smashed me for saying that, something to do with being 50 years old and he didn't recognise that behaviour amongst Indians.

    Maybe you can only speak the uncomfortable truth if you're part of the 'in crowd' on this forum?

    Failing to get your head around a different culture's mores and habits is not racist, making sweeping generalisations based on your own culture's equivalent is.

    Pretty much all the email exchanges I've had so far with them go along these lines:

    Ramesh: hi we have a role for you paying £500 a day. are you interested?
    PCTNN: yes but I want £1000 a day.
    Ramesh: client can make 750.
    PCTNN: mmm...ok sure 750 will do.

    1-2 days go by

    Ramesh: hi client really likes your CV and wants to invite you for an interview. Day rate is £500 a day. When are you available?

    I put my CV on a US job board just for a few days as I saw a good fitting remote contract and to see if I would get any reactions from US based agencies.

    Ever since I got spammed by Nityo 5 -10 emails per day and to a much lesser extend by other Indian agencies (luckily no phone calls)
    Unsubscribing made it worse and now Chrome says the unsubscribe page is not safe.
    First replied a few times asking politely to remove me from their mailing list, when that didn't help I used profanities first in English, later in Hindi, also doesn't help

    I find it helps to block the numbers on your phone as you go, but it feels a bit like The Sorcerer's Apprentice

    "Oh yes, I'm not looking for any jobs thank you"

    "OK... well in that case I have a new job opportunity in Edin-burg, are you interested in this job opportunity"

    After a while you get to know when a call isn't worth your trouble in the first 3 secs or so
    Edin-burg - England is how they usually day it

    In recent years they've been spamming me from 100% indian named operatives. As recently as 2019 they had English named agents.
    Why do I think they're now an Indian agency? Some of them haven't even bothered to update their email signatures.



    I've swapped the agents name with a fake name. Everything else is real.
    I can confirm, after looking through my outlook search facility that this is correct. eteam appeared to be using an english random name generator and then from about mid-2021 the english names were dropped but the spam levels increased.

    Have a read of the google reviews of eteam - caveat emtor.......
