Staffing Agencies near Perris / Corona

Hey guys, I've been having some rough luck finding employment. My current assignment at Citi staff has ended and now I need to regain some beautiful employment.

Staffmark is unable to find me any work but they have me calling back every now and then. Select staffing is making me wait 6 months to re do my application for some reason.

After googling I'm not sure which other agencies to try. Also, unfortunately, my background is not the cleanest. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks for your time.

Recruiters, The good the bad and the ugly. Let's here it!

I recently posted an article about how to select a Recruiter or Head Hunter. (Yes, The website is still under construction) Some of my conversations as a mod on r/recruiting and recent interactions on r/recruitinghell have led me to believe that there are way more bad Recruiters out there than ever before.

I know a big part of this comes from staffing agencies under training Head Hunters and using volume to drive revenue rather than quality. This happens every time skilled professionals are in high demand and low supply. But, some of it comes from companies under supporting or valuing recruitment.

So, I want to hear everyone's opinions on working with Recruiters (Internal or Agency). What did you like, hate, and what were your outcomes.

I train Recruiters and create content for the Recruiting space. I want to change the industry for the better. So lay it on me!

"I am Terry Terhark. I've founded, built, and sold 2 companies and I'm currently building my 3rd. AMA!"

My short bio: Hi, Reddit!

My name is Terry Terhark and I’m an entrepreneur building on more than 30 years of experience in the Human Resources industry.

I began my career in recruiting and hiring in 1984 in Houston, Texas and got most of my experience and success in Ohio. I started my first two companies before I had a college degree. I decided to pursue a degree several years later out of sheer interest and received my BA in business administration and management from the University of Findlay in 2005.

I started Selective Staffing Inc., a high-volume recruiting firm, in 1990. It was acquired by Aon in 1998. I stayed with Aon for 5 years as Senior Vice President in the Employment Outsourcing Group until deciding to take my learnings and new experience in a larger corporation to start The RightThing in 2003. The RightThing was an RPO (recruitment process outsourcing) company that was extremely successful. We had several high-profile clients and an exceptional company culture. We were also ranked the third best small company to work for in the nation by Great Place to Work Institute. As a result of that great success, ADP acquired us in 2011. Following the acquisition, I remained with ADP as President, Talent Acquisition Solutions before ultimately deciding that I wanted to get back to the excitement of building something from the ground up.

Fast-forward to now -- I’ve recently launched my new company, randrr, in April of this year. randrr is the culmination of my more-than 3 decades of experience in recruitment and first-hand exposure to how broken the process really is. We are actively developing an application to connect job candidates and companies in a cutting-edge way, realigning the focus from the company to the candidate. I’ve helped shape the HR industry into what it is today and can tell you that it has been almost entirely one-sided to favor the company. What started as my vision to disrupt that trend and refocus on the people has quickly become our company-wide mission. We hope to launch our platform early next year.

I open it up to you now, Reddit. Ask Me Anything about myself, my history, and/or my most recent endeavor. If there is one thing that I have always valued it’s authenticity and feedback. I cherish it and consider it heavily while solving these problems in the industry. I’m interested in people. While I certainly believe my hard work and expertise has contributed, my success can also be attributed to good ti

During the Holocaust, how did the Nazis select the personnel who staffed the death camps?

I've read accounts by people like Franz Suchomel where they state that there was no real volunteering or selection process - one day they got orders to report to a new secret program and that was that.

Are these correct? I can see why, if they had volunteered for genocidal duties, they would wish to hide that fact. Was thought ever given by the higher-ups to what kind of person they wanted to carry out this work? Personalities like Christian Wirth or Erich Bauer seem to ideal in that they were clearly unhinged psychopaths, whilst the likes of Suchomel and Groening present themselves as Browning's "ordinary men" who simply followed orders without engaging their own consciences.

FLHOSP won't pay me for contract work unless I go to a clinic and get all sorts of tests done.

I worked at Florida Hospital in Orlando for 2 days as a contract filmographer in July. The pay was only $100 per day and I mainly assisted the team there in making videos for the Hospital.

After the work was done I inquired about my payment and they told me I had to go to an office with Select Staffing so it could process through payroll. I had to fill out all sorts of forms and then they gave me forms for me to go to a clinic and get tests done. I told them I was only doing contract work and they told me it didn't matter, I still had to get the tests done.

At this point I had already done all the work I intended to do for them so I didn't get the tests done as I didn't intend to do anymore work. I inquired about the payment with Select Staffing and they told me my supervisor at Florida Hospital (Orlando) had to send in this completed time sheet form. It took my supervisor forever to fill it out and scan it back to me as I was going to school in Tampa this fall. I send them the form on the 4th of September, they told me they would process my payment for next payroll on the 17th...they told me they would let me know if there was any problems.

I remember about it and get back to them on the 30th saying I still haven't received payment. They tell me to call their supervisor who is saying they can't pay me until I get the tests done at the clinic. She told me that Florida Hospital has a policy that anyone who steps foot on Florida Hospital must have these tests before they can be paid, otherwise they face a $15,000 fee.

It is a major inconvenience, and I like many people do not like to get blood work, drug tests, TB tests, rubella and varicella tests for no reason, however, $200 is a lot for me at the moment as a full-time college student.

Am I wrong in concluding the following :

They messed up in not requiring this before I did my contract work. They still owe me $200, even if I fail all the tests and more importantly they can't ask that I do these tests AFTER I did the contract work.

What should I do? It is hard for me to find the time to get the tests done at one of their four ORLANDO clinics when I am going to school fulltime and working in TAMPA. Furthermore I think they are breaking some labor laws here in not paying me.

(Let me know if I can do anything to assist in clarification or provide more information)

My Bear Case for CCL (Carnival Cruise Lines)

(Sorry this is long, I have TL;DR throughout and at the bottom)

To start off, I know what you’re thinking. “Cruises are totally a recovery stock, and CCL is trading at $26.35 a share, 45% lower than the January prior to COVID. With vaccine news this is a no-brain buy.” And while that’s the sentiment that has driven up price, it doesn’t account for a variety of factors. (Given, this is a fair bit speculative on what the CDC will announce, but we can make pretty safe bets).

Share Dilution and Current Market Cap

Since COVID forced a shutdown of the cruise industry CCL has taken on a boat-load of debt. After selling $1 Billion in shares last week they had secured $23.5 Billion in liquidity since COVID began, and their long-term debt raised from $9.7B to $25B. They diluted shares like crazy throughout the whole process. Even now if you look at the current market cap of CCL ($30.54B) it is only 16.26% lower than prior to COVID (36.47B). This amount of dilution and current market cap is kind of alarming to be honest.

They have pushed back the due dates of some contracts of new ships and a port, but they have sizeable financial obligations throughout the next several years. At $3B average net revenue prior to COVID, the interest and payments on the addition of possibly $20B in debt by the time they return to normal, as well as obligations, is going to screw net profits over.

TL;DR: Crazy dilution of shares means that current stock price is much closer to pre-covid levels than it appears, but with the addition of $15 Billion in debt added to the company so far, and an expensive next year ahead that I’ll touch on below.

Ramp up Period

With the CDC’s release of the “Framework for Conditional Sailing” late last year we saw a generalized process of how cruises will return back to normalcy. In summary cruise liners are still waiting for even more updated instructions from the CDC on how to specifically conduct these but each cruise will need to operate trial cruises, at normal staffing levels and expected capacity, to prove that implemented safety processes won’t result in new cases. After these trial cruises are conducted, they can apply for conditional permits no sooner than 30 days before the scheduled departure of the cruise.

This process is going to be incredibly expensive. Currently CCL is losing $3-5B a quarter maintaining and staffing the ships with skeleton cruises, and several are dry docked. In order to get passed off by the CDC they will in

##Executive actions and staffing

The Biden administration announced it will reimpose sanctions on Israeli billionaire Dan Getler, reversing a last-minute decision by former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Getler was put on the sanctions list, under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, in 2017 for “opaque and corrupt mining deals" stemming from his friendship with then-Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) President Joseph Kabila. He had hired high-powered lobbyists and lawyers, including Alan Dershowitz, to press Trump’s Treasury to remove the sanctions before he left office.

>Pressure also came from Israel, where Mr. Gertler is represented by prominent lawyers including Boaz Ben Zur, whose client list also includes Mr. Netanyahu. David M. Friedman, then the U.S. ambassador there, was targeted in the push, and then notified Mr. Mnuchin and Mr. Pompeo that he supported the sanctions relief Mr. Gertler wanted

The White House has backed a new congressional effort to repeal and replace a war authorization that has allowed four administrations to conduct military action with little to no involvement of lawmakers. One bill on the table was introduced last week by Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Todd Young (R-IN) following Biden’s first military strike in eastern Syria. If it passes and is signed into law, the Senate would have to vote to approve most actions of war.

I have a meeting with a staffing agency: Anybody familiar with GradStaff?

I applied to a job on LinkedIn last week (Business Relationship Specialist--Entry Level). It was posted by an employee of a company called GradStaff. I figured the job was with them, but apparently not.

I received a call from the individual who posted the job, and she left a voicemail saying that she would like to discuss my resume, my job hunt, opportunities, etc. So we played a bit of phone tag from Thursday morning until this afternoon.

We finally got on the phone together, and she asked whether I could discuss my resume. We did, along with my current job hunt--things like deal-breakers, desires, etc. So then we start talking about her company: GradStaff. She tells me that they are a 'highly selective' staffing agency for recent graduates (less than two years out). They meet with candidates, go over their skills, areas of expertise and interest, etc. Then they place them with clients across the business world--Finance, Banking, IT, etc. They do a four-month temp-to-hire period with their clients, at which point the position moves forward as a permanent job if both sides find it to be a suitable fit.

We scheduled an interview for this Wednesday and, I have to say, they sound pretty demanding. And I mean that in a good way, because I cannot imagine having much confidence in a staffing agency that wants me to show up in slippers and pajamas. They request a copy of your resume and references both physically and electronically, after offering advice on how it could be more effective. They strictly require business professional attire, and will not reschedule once an appointment has been made and confirmed.

Do any young graduates have any experience with this agency? If not, do you know anyone who does? I get a good feeling about them from visiting their site and looking up reviews. No real complaints, except from a couple of their own personal ex employees. It felt great getting this phone call, as I received it on my way back from interview for what wound up being a somewhat shady job.

I’m so lost and I feel like a failure.

I come from a low socioeconomic background. First person to go to college. When I went through college I didn’t know what I was doing and selected a useless degree. (Early childhood/ human development. What have I used from that? Nothing. I learned that I wasn’t interested in the long run.) Ive worked a couple of jobs each unrelated. I currently work in admissions/ recruiting for a large university in a regional office. I feel very stuck right now. I can’t move up because I don’t have a masters and I live paycheck to paycheck.

I’ve been trying for the past 6 months to transition out but I’ve had no luck with HR or other recruiting related roles. I’ve had my resume looked over by career center at my Alma mater. I know recruiters look at my resume because they look me up on LinkedIn. Just no luck!

I recently decided to reach out to an MBA program and ask about guidance with tuition and scholarships... and well they basically said I was out of luck. Tuition benefits at my job? 1 class a semester. (But I don’t plan on staying here.) I have even tried staffing agencies and nothing.

I can’t go back to school because I don’t have the money and I already have debt. I can’t get out of my job because I don’t have the skills according to recruiters not reaching out. (Although I have a lot of transferable skills and can do the job of Recruiting or outreach related, but I guess not enough knowledge.)

It’s very hard seeing all my friends earn good wages. They all have relevant degrees, and work for top companies. It’s hard seeing them get to travel and just enjoy life. They just don’t understand. Meanwhile I just cry sometimes because I’m trying very hard and I’m getting nowhere. I’m just hopeless at this point. I’m stuck and I just don’t see a way out. It really is hard when you have no guidance early on and you’re poor. I just can’t break out of the cycle.

This is me just venting.

FIII – Electric Last Mile Solutions – **HUGE EPIC DD** - A Sleeping GIANT! The 1st and ONLY Class 1 EV Van in the US!

EDIT - I sent this to FIII investor relations and they got back and asked if Id like to talk with Jim Taylor for a few minutes so I said sure. Will probably be tomorrow or wed. Let me know if anybody has specific questions or anything they would like me to be ask. Ill definately be asking about timeline for merger.

Hello All, this is my first DD. It is long but I hope you will enjoy it. I wanted to do an in-depth dive into the company Forum Merger 3 (FIII) , who is merging with Electric Last Mile Solutions, an EV company specializing in last mile delivery and work vans. FIII will be the first and only Class 1 electric vehicle on the market, coming as early as Q3, with no other Class 1 EV as competition. They are also bringing a Class 2 EV truck to market next year. A key factor in allowing ELMS to be first to market in Class 1 is the fact that they are taking over the old Hummer plant in Indiana. Additionally, they have the luxury of working with an already successful EV company, allowing for instant transposition of truck plans ready for production.

FIII has intrigued me from the get go being an EV SPAC, yet it has received little to no attention which is reflected in the current stock price. There has been little to no movement on the stock other than some sideways and downwards action, which is atypical behavior for most EV SPACs. So what gives?

After doing some digging, it appears that the main concern holding back most investors back from committing to this great company is their connection and relations to (((CHINA))), which comes by way of a company in particular called Sokon Automotive.This concern is not unwarranted, as ties to China have been an issue of concern in the market lately. As investors, especially when dealing with new companies, we want maximum transparency, which seems almost impossible any time we're dealing with a Chinese company. However, as my research has shown, the ELMS relationship with China is nothing to be concerned about. In fact, it is quite the opposite – something that will help propel them forward and accelerate their process through previously successfully developed truck plans and numerous industry connections.

I. The Team

First, let's take a look at who is behind the team. As we have come to know, a SPAC is only as good as the team behind it. The team behind ELMS is an All-Star cast of players in the auto industry with years of experience and accomplishments. After looking int

Update on TMCC and DG - communication and product service

Hey guys! I hope you are all well today. Please excuse the formatting - Reddit is being odd right now and it might not display correctly.

I wanted to give you all an update regarding the recent service at The Medical Cannabis Clinic and Dispensary Green.

I spoke to the MD and Chief Pharmacist of LYPHE Group this week. As you will have read there have been a lot of comments and posts about the poor service and communication recently. I set up this sub-Reddit so the entire process succeeds and with this in mind I emailed the Clinic last week with a selection of your comments about the service. They got back to me immediately and we had a chat this week. They are extremely professional, open and self-aware.

Basically, things are changing and soon. Systems are being improved, and I have been told that product availability is going to increase at the end of this month. There's been lots of bureaucracy worldwide, COVID hasn’t helped, nor has Brexit or other countries’ struggles. There’s some good news for the BOL users! They are improving the communication by increasing staffing, improving the delivery of product and are also increasing the transparency and detail of the prescription-to-delivery process too. I believe some of us are already noticing the service in this particular area has improved.

They are aware of the issues and are actively working on improving them, but it does takes time. We discussed a lot more in more detail, but I am just passing on the most important points. I’m also conscious not to mis-represent the information I got so I’m erring on the side of caution with this post.

I know this might be scant relief to some people who are struggling right now but I hope it at least allows some clarity. You aren’t being ignored – they know the issues and are working on them.

Bearing in mind the scarcity of detail in what I am sharing with you now and their potential approach to future communications, the Clinic may well wish to speak with the community directly at some point in the near future. I hope that will enable everyone to feel a bit more connected to the Clinic. I think we would all support that level of engagement and I will facilitate that, if necessary.

Unfortunately, I cannot answer anything else in much more detail at present. However, the answers I got made me want people to know that there is some movement and some communication.

As I am in the same boat as all of you, please remember that your frustr

When Outer Worlds came out, I did a lore run then started writing "Halycon: A Star Crossed Colony"

AUTHOR NOTE: SPOILERS!! also not complete, doesn't include Gorgon, and rough draft. Thought I would share since I dug this up for a different reddit post and share.

Halcyon: A Star Crossed Colony

Early Stages

To understand how Halcyon came to be, it is helps to know that in 1901, U.S.A. President William McKinley completed his term of office. In our own timeline, McKinley was assassinated, allowing for Theodore Roosevelt to become President and enact antitrust legislation. McKinley’s leadership (and the lack of Teddy’s) allowed for a hyper-capitalist society and economy to develop.

This, combined with advances in space travel, spur the formation of the Halcyon Holdings Corporation. The HHC, led by the Halcyon Holdings Corporate Board, buys the rights to the Halcyon system and becomes the “only colony on the edge of the frontier that is owned and operated by distinguished corporations!”.

The HHC advertises itself as follows:

“Designed to maximize productivity, with guaranteed full employment!* (Full employment not guaranteed). Life on a colony world is perfectly planned and perfectly balanced. Top scientists will carefully measure and precisely determine your aptitude, so that you can have a fulfilling career with a bright future. Imagine life with no war, no famine, no disease. That is your life—in a colony world!”

The Corporations of Halcyon

It is unclear aside from UDL who exactly are the other members of the Board. In the end, it does not seem to matter, as Akande is clearly doing the legwork of managing the colony, while Rockwell acts as the face. More support that UDL holds the power in the arrangement.

Theory & Conjecture: Who are the members of the Board:

· Universal Defense Logistics

· The predecessor to Monarch Stellar Industries

· Kolway Pharmaceuticals

· Rizzo’s

· Hephaestus Mining Company

From the beginning, it seems that Universal Defense Logistics held a high level of power in the arrangement. UDL sponsored both the Groundbreaker and the Hope, the CEO holds the top ranking spot as chairman on the HHC Board, and UDL seems to hold the most companies and influence under its umbrella.

Of note: We never come across a weapons or munitions factory as we wander Halcyon.

Breaking Ground

The UDL-001 Groundbreaker sets course for Halcyon in the early 23rd century, roughly 2200-2240.

Captained by Chief Guiying Tennyson, the Groundbreaker makes it to Halcyon on schedule. The ship parks itself at the

03-15-21 - Citrus Construction Case Study Published

  • Citrus Construction revealed as client. Citrus Construction is one of Florida’s leading licensed contractors, specializing in multi-family housing developments; it is a subsidiary of The Richman Group, the 7th largest rental apartment owner in the US.

  • The case study describes in detail how Citrus Construction is successfully using multiple RAD ROSA devices at their construction sites to deter trespassing, reduce criminal activity, and respond to suspicious incidents on their sites.

  • Citrus Construction Vice President Greg Van Haute is quoted as stating: "Through RAD’s subscription model, we’re paying a fraction of what we were paying before.”, "More importantly, we’ve seen a drop in crime. ROSA is doing the same or better than having a security guard in place." and, "Ultimately, we expect to have several more units in our inventory, enough to cover all of our properties!”

Politics of Iran: A novel

What does Ayatollah mean anyway?

Any discussion of Iranian politics is impossible without first understanding the Shia clerical system. Would be clerics and jurists, often from religious homes, are sent to cities like Najaf and Qom to study religion and become experts. Due to a quirk in Shia Islam, these children study not just the Quran and theology, but philosophy and jurisprudence.

There are various levels here that we won't go into, but the highest level one can achieve is the rank of a Grand Ayatollah (called marja). This isn't a contest of talent alone. Networking matters, family relations matter. And ultimately, a Grand Ayatollah isn't just top dog scholar, he also has a lot of political connections.

Politics? I thought we were talking about religion.

Ayatollahs teach you how to religion. But the position of an Ayatollah has always been a somewhat political position. This used to be expressed in three forms.

  1. Civil laws for marriage, divorce, and inheritance.
  2. Settling disputes over money, trade and other small matters.
  3. Creating a local welfare system centered on mosques.

Under the Safavid dynasty, which converted Iranians to Shia Islam, the clerics were absorbed into the government and wielded direct political power. As dynasties changed, the clerics still remained influential, capable of mounting popular uprisings against the king, the first famous example of which is The Tobacco Riots which was followed by a Constitutional Revolution that weakened the Qajar monarchy. In fact, every single significant political protest since the Safavids has always involved Iranian Clerics – The Oil Nationalization, the riots of 1963, and finally, the Iranian Revolution.

So what the hell is a Supreme Leader

Imagine Plato's philosopher-king but in an Islamic context. The system was envisioned by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and was called Vilayat-e-faqih or Guardianship of the Jurist. The notion was that a high ranking cleric should oversee all the laws of the country to ensure they are in line with Islamic teachings. This cleric would be known as the Supreme Leader. Guess who would become the first Supreme Leader.

**OK, so Iran is a
