One lady Bay area recruiter(consultancy) called me and said that companies like eBay PayPal linkedin Walmart labs won't hire full time cause the managers have tie ups with consultancy companies and hence they reject and will force contract work on you .Is that true?
She claims that the managers and these contract staffing firms have some tie and they pay them for those roles.I really wanted to know if it's true and if Bay area interviews are just an eye wash this is for SDE positions

    OP
    So the consultancy and the manager have a cut ..and they reject full time candidates and choose other candidates (from flexton) for contract work as the position is not filled

      There is one thing to extract work from you giving you hope for full-time and another thing to do it via threat to end your contract. Both are bad but which is worst is up to you to decide?

      Many other companies even don't consider about extracting work. Don't join atleast as a contractor there.

    That's total BS. We are building some serious next gen sh*t here and talent from consultancies won't just cut it. There may be lot of DevOps, QA and in some cases data engineers from consultancies but very few SDEs. My team, for example, is very selective with CVs that we accept for our SDE and Data Scientist roles and there's no chance anyone without a CS Masters or PhD from a top school would clear the interviews. Having said that, would really appreciate if you provide more pointers, like team, project or group within walmart where you have experienced this - I can take it up with our ethics watchdog.

      Walmart is a shittiest place to work as a consultant. These Indian Managers treat you like a piece of meat. It goes as bad as even in middle of meeting he starts giving you warnings and insult you right in front of the entire teams of 15-20 people.

    Complete BS when it comes to WMT. They've been hiring FTE like crazy.

    • StubHub DjJH80
      Hahah.. When ?? in Tuesday's Dream or Sunday's Nap. Lol
      They hire FTE in Arkansa office that as well back in 2018.

      Practical Tip : Apply to 10 jobs for a month of Walmart and Apple and same number to any other BETTER OR SAME Level company. You at least get a recognition. Over here, straight rejection. Don't know why they pay recruiters there .. lmao..😂 😆 🤣

    Flexton, in reality is a really bad consultancy, which primary targets the new grads from good universities and promises them a great pay, a very early full-time conversion and good work. But, in reality over there its all like a P*mp business (sorry for my words). As if even if there is a great opportunity and ur profile aligns with them like 94% but if a recruiter B is in-charged for you she will place with their "MANAGER'S".

    INTERVIEW : They will give you a template of what that manager will ask you:
    1. They will ask you to sort people by name.
    2. Web Server vs Application server...LOL

    OFFER LETTER : After the Interview, you will be told a fake 15 names of people who did not qualify for the JOB but you damm did. Next comes, EXAGERATED CELEBERATION, you get calls from everyone from company. Your uber full-time congratulations seems dull now

    FIRST DAY:
    In 5 minute, they Introduce you to the team and then comes the kind of regular threat.... as in every 4 hours..

    In general some teams are good in walmart but consultants are treated bad in Walmart and Apple. The Managers usually give you a far-fetched full-time hope.

    Do not Join it from Flexton atleast. They have the worst teams with them and shitt*est managers.

    This is absurd, the teams i manage at walmart have zero contractor( and we are hiring like crazy) . Unless there are some special circumstances, You can not keep a contractors for more that few quarters anyways, and hence its more of a hassle than help unless you have some very specific short term task for your team. I guess I have heard of flexton, i blv its one of the approved vendors at walmart but if they are spreading rumours like this about walmart, i will be more than happy to report them to our VMO ( vendor managment org) .

    What do you mean by “reject and force contract work on you”?? Scratching my head real hard to comprehend your statement.

      Sometimes they can use candidate’s desperation to hire them under contract role instead of full time but they use company resources to identify candidates

    I don't think this is true. I haven't seen any consultancy hire here. They seem very serious about the hiring process, can't say anything about the other firms.

    Wouldn’t that manager be fired if HR finds out? Is it even legal? That sounds like a bribery going on there. Evidence collection should be easy as well. I don’t know how to tip police about this but you can perhaps call the police station and ask whether this is something that needs to be reported. I would also find their high rank HR person from linkedin and inform them.
