They will blame you if the person leaves all because they manage badly, treat them badly, lie to them or the recession starts next year and they have to let them go
Hard lesson to learn if you started out with bad habits. From Recruiters Who Actually Make Placements (invite required, ask for one):
Company contacts us and is offering us a search. POC says he's VP-HR and a "former recruiter" (great...not). He asks for our terms...and dictates for me not to quote him "anything over 25%". I'm like: "OK. 25%." He asks for it in writing. I send it and it says Net30. I get an e-mail from him seven days later saying his COO wants to pay the fee monthly over a span of 12 months.
Do I continue this back-and-forth or is this baloney?
