I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Kelly Services in November 2013.
Interview Details No specific job interview was held with the client. The job description information was vague and the Staffing Specialist minimized my background to justify the poor rate The Staffing Specialist presented the rate as a take it or leave it situation and blamed the client for the low rate.
Interview Question – No interview was conducted with the client. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No, opportunity to negotiate. I told the Staffing Specialist that the rate was too late I provided my salary history to present what my previous rates had been.

They exploited the fact that I was unemployed and had not been able to secure a steady IT position.
