.....you'll need to agree to the cut rate, bargain-bin fee the other agencies agreed to. The position has been open since December and we really need someone ASAP. Do you have anyone? The manager is losing his mind - and taking it out on me!
This happens ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!
So let me get this straight. Your company found a few recruiters during the recession that agreed to cut their fee in half? Good job. Thank you for helping some of the bottom feeders hang on just a bit longer. How kind of you.
Now that Cutfee and Associates have found better clients and moved on - you expect ME to lower my fee to whatever rate they agreed to? What am I - an idiot? Am I not supposed to put 2 and 2 together here?
Why in the world should I be forced to make the same agreement some other bozo made with you? (Who then could not deliver.....and has bailed on you....or perhaps left the industry all together?)
Here's an example. I would LOVE a new Corvette. The one I'd like is $79,000. I convinced a salesman to sell it to me for $50K. I was ready to buy. That was a month ago - haven't heard from him since.
What are the odds on the next dealership hooking me up?
