AIL - The Hart Group Sacramento / unethical recruiting

1 Sacramento, CA, United States Review updated:

I received an email from the hiring director, M.V "after reviewing you resume you may be an ideal candidate for the full- time Benefits Coordinator position we are currently hiring for." ( I should have realized immediately, ending a sentence with a preposition horrible grammar) .

He then stated I would be meeting with the "General manager Mr. T__________, for the interview so Mr. T_____ would have the opportunity to go over my background as well as discuss the positions available in great depth. Then Mr._________ the general manager will determine if I would be a good fit with the company and for what position. ( I applied for a specific position)
The Hart Group is suppose to be the middle man between the unions and the policy holders. However it sounds to me that is not accurate from what I have read online, since they sell some type of insurance.
I emailed the hiring manager again asking if this position required any licenses, since it was not stated in the employment request, never had a response!
Thank heavens for the internet, and options like this website read about complaints, then to complain. I saved myself a 45 min. drive each way, and a taking notes for a unwanted position.
All I can say to the Hart Group, needs to be honest with your advertising for employment, and don't schedule an interview until you do your research. "which might take up to an hour or two, and bring a notebook to take notes." Email exchanges 9.24.18 & 9.25.18.

    They are a joke. I feel for people looking for a job and I'm one of them. These people use whatever they can to prey on people. First of all, if there's not a phone number or company website listed, they're not a reliable company period. If there's not a person available that truly interested in hiring you but cannot contact them...don't waste your time. I wish more people would report them to the BBB which I'm doing. They are a bad seed in this industry and need to be stopped. I'm going to the Sac location soon and will report back.

    This is a Union job with Local 277 which allows active agents to retire after 10 years. This union doesn't even exist in Northern California.

    Additionally, look on career sites to ensure they have job sites listed or at least a company web site. Looking for a meaningful job takes hours a day and don't waste your time on these fools.
