had to say. As I said, I took the time because its a good case for vendor side and buyer side differences in perception of the same facts.
When you say "clearly you disagree with the sharing of my experience with others?" that is a straw man; I am all for sharing. It's the proportionality of the way you shared that I take issue with. A dedicated webpage seemingly SEO'd to be noticed is more than sharing- it's intentional negative advertising designed to harm Bullhorn.
Your post here seems, IMO, more in-line with the usual give and take between vendor and customer. I think a flame site is another level, and not fitted to the facts here.
I want to clarify one other important point that more small business people don't often grasp: deciding to not pay a demanded bill arising from a contract is also a breach of the contract. In most cases for smallish amounts of money, better to pay the bill and then move to recover for their breach of the contract to avoid legal issues yourself. Just not paying seems like the best leverage, but often its counterproductive to getting results.
A product as complex as Bullhorn (or any serious recruiting software) is going to have a hundred bugs in a given release. Only a few big ones if everyone is lucky.
ou should never have to pay for monthy service
Recruiting time saved by ease of finding targeted candidates, priceless. Even if I had the premium at 5k. Would I pay 5k to make 65k doesn't seem like complicated math to me.
Seems like a fair cost of inventory to me. Not sure why any of us would think we should get a free ride from anyone who has spent millions to create a source. We sure ask our clients to pay well for their source of candidates they hire. We got a free ride for several years and still have that option. If anybody wants tools to make their job easier they normally get to buy a hammer. Home depot doesn't give away tools either.…
ew hundred thousand cars.
The cash for clunkers program got beaten black and blue by critics saying it actually eats up future car sales. The temporary sales of new cars with the help of a rebate (big wad of cash, i agree) does stimulate car sales, but it also means people are making investment decisions they were afraid to make a week or a month or 3 months ago. Some of them will invest cash and others will take out car loans for the balance, probably. The ripple effect will improve conditions for more than just the automobile industry (new cars cost more to insure, for example) .
It would be interesting to learn how many of the buyers in this program were replacing their 'primary' or 'commute' vehicle with a more fuel efficient one, and how many were buying that Lexus they didn't need for another 6 months, just because the rebate was available. Would you?
Drawing a parallel to the job market like you do here, a hiring manager would not hire someone he/she didn't need just because a rebate was available. Even if they didn't have to pay a commission out of pocket, the salary and benefits still need to be budgeted for, just like the balance of the car's price after the rebate needs to be paid for by the buyers.…
but if you have an attorney write a "demand letter" for a few hundred dollars, that might produce results. If not, let them know that court costs will be part of the suit. You can sue for cost of litigation (if you win). If you really have a solid case, they will have to settle (if you actually file a collection lawsuit), because otherwise they will also lose any money involved in defending themselves. You should probably talk to a contracts attorney.
Do they have any excuse for not paying? It generally is better to sue for more than less... small claims court has never been an option I'd consider, and generally companies will have to pay up.…
fees and hunt you down to the gates of Hell to get you to pay those but they can't tell us where SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS went -do you know HOW MUCH MONEY THAT IS, people?) where the money went? It's outrageous, stupifyingly insulting and yet WE THE PEOPLE barely hear the news much less react!
I am in a state of shock - our treasury has been ROBBED and nobody is saying A THING about it. Now this additional near-trillion dollar stimulus (it's around$700B again isn't it?) where will that come from? From the taxpayer's back? I guess they'll keep doing it in $700B "packages" 'til we start howling -well, I'm howling NOW. I want some answers. I'm sick of being laughed at.
