I worked as a recruiter at Insight Global in Dallas for a few months. I found the company to be unethical, which was part of the reason I left. IG does not hire people who want to be recruiters; everyone is hired with the purpose of being promoted into sales within...

Obviously you got treated better than contract *** like me. You had better benefits but recruiters ignored me and the others once we were in.

In fact Insight global like to poach on other contract company employees at the job site. I work overtime but dont get paid due to strict policy from Insight that says you have to get it approved ahead of time.

Plus the fact once you are in the door the recruiters blow you off anyway. As a contractor lies deceit and no ethics from management

They let me think I actually had the job and ready to start until I got an email WEEKS later telling me I didnt have the job, but the whole time, management KEPT TELLING ME I HAD THE JOB!!!! ME

User's recommendation: RUN AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried to contact Insight Global and received a recording and was asked to record my complaint. I did so and have not heard anything from them.

It seems Insignt Global has this all down pat as they have a designated number for complaints. Must be getting quite a few.

Want my money that’s owed to me for working

No due to the issue I had

I contacted my recruiter after being switched over to the current company about my last check being short by a few dollars considering I worked the same amount of hours as before so I have not gotten a response since I informed her on how much it was short by I guess since the amount isn't large it's not important but the fact is it's my money and its been a week and still nothing has been resolved so unprofessional.

My understanding is IG only hires people in their early 20s, fresh out of college and with no recruiting background. Some may have previously just worked in restaurants and have zero professional experience or may not have worked at all. They aren't the only ones as Aeroktek is famous for the same hiring practices.

Unpaid wages

I am a contractor & had 5 PTO days written into my contract. In June, I took 4 PTO days. The last three paychecks have been incorrect. I have not been paid for those days. I have incurred late & OD fees as a result. I have been fighting for what is rightfully mine. I keep getting the run around and promised things that have not happened. I am currently working with a lawyer to see if this situation qualifies for liquidated damages per the FLSA. I have all text messages, emails, voicemails, documentation, phone calls for the situation. I have spent countless hours/days trying to get this rectified to no avail. I requested the name & number of the legal & HR dept but continue to be ignored and not receive this info. I found out another contractor I just met last Friday is going through the exact same thing with them as well. Many sleepless night and high anxiety. Going to keep fighting through an attorney until this is resolved to my satisfaction. I will NOT be renewing my contract when it is up!

Bad experience totally during hiring process

I was contacted nby a recruiter from insight global . For 2 days she was all happy about this job she had for me. She even redid my resume for it. Second day that morning she said ok why dont we set up a face time interview at 2 PM so you dont have to drive over here so i aggreed , she said there would be someone else talking to me also. Well 2 PM rolled around and no call i waited till 330 and no call so i emailed to tey and gdt an answer because my time did not seem to be worth anything. I emailed several times just to get a response then i called and asked for the recruiter , and i asked for first and last name. Well she was in back in a meeting and they would have her call me when she was done then waited awhile and called back got different person and i askdd for person by first and last name..well she is on other line but will have her call you when she gets done. Next morning i get a call from office manager who told me all this about oh she had a lunch that ran over all day. SSo she could not use her cell and call me and tell me that we would have to cancel my facetime interview and when she hung up phone she did not hang it up so i got to hear whole office yelling about me calling me names i was called F bomb and many other things yelling accross office so ss soon as she thought she hung up i started recording it and what a slander case this was. Before she actully thought she hung up she said please call my cell phone if you need anything else.......well i texted her cell twice as she told me too and told her i was talking to arrorney and she started tlling me oh theres 2 people by your recruiters name in the office i said and nobody could call me and tell me yesterday that me face time was not going to happe.n and i did say i may have to hire an attorney but according to her it was threats so my time meant nothing. Wasting whole afternoon omn it but oh i got thst tape of them calling me all kinds of stuff whst better slander case than a tape of them cslling mme stuff and she claimed there were 2vpeople by my recruiters name but i asked for her by first and last name so oh man this manager was backpeddling so bad thinking i guess i was a kid i am 55........i still may sue for slander after she says i harrased her and an attorney read all my emails so did a deputy sherriff and nirther saw any threats they are a business so dont go here if they call hang up your time means nothing

Rabid robocalls

Four calls today alone. Find yourself one of these smartphone apps to block calls. I've been blocking by area code, especially since I don't know anyone in Michigan or most the other places I'm being called by. I need a better job, but you folks obviously have too much of an agenda.

Insight global is scam

Insifht Global Arlington Virginia Stay away from them! They are scammers. I swear to God. My recruiter was Sarah Spang. The manager Molly. She is acting all the time that she is nice but she was lying to me. The same story happened with me: they told me that the damn contract is for 6 months but I swear I didn't even work 1 hour. They sent me to a company called Direct Line. This is another scam. I lost my side job because of them. I am now in the living *** They don't know anything about honesty. STAY AWAAAAAY! may God get revenge for me from Insight Global.

Outright Lying

Received a cold call from Insight saying I posted my resume online and they had a "client" very interested in me. First, I retired 4 years ago after 36 years with the same company. Second, I never posted my resume online or used a head hunter in my entire working career. So I decided to string this guy along... I asked him if he had my resume? He said yes so I asked him to read off my work history just to make sure it was still valid. No dates just the company names t make it easy for him. Then he started getting vague saying he only had a listing of my resume not the actual body of it. He said I could email it to him so he could forward it to the interested company to speed things up. I said to him... do you know how old I am? Silence on his part... I said I'm 64 and retired 4 years ago. I don't have a resume or every posted one on line so you are B**S*** artist. He hung up on me.

Scam of the Century (Dallas Tx)

They approached me and I did two interviews with them for a Client they had. They said I did so well that their client only wanted me and that I had the job. They also said they needed about one business day to negotiate the terms. During that time they checked my references then tried to get business to fill the role I had with my current employer at the time. They then totally ghosted me and I had to chase them around only for them to tell me two weeks later that I didn’t get the job after I had already left my employer. They write fake 5 star reviews on sites, there are very many complaints like mine, including others where they don’t pay for overtime. They need to be shut down and stopped.

Insight Global should be investigated and then shut down if all these allegations are true. I just had a brush with them and I can say they are very deceptive and seem to not care at all about their level of deceit.

It is simply how they conduct business. It is systemic in the organization.

They seem like psychopaths. How can someone blatantly lie all day every day and not be a psychopath?

Went to Interview then nothing

I interviewed with a major company after being told I was a good candidate. Contacted them about interview. Was told we'll get back to you. Haven't heard from anyone yet. This was 2 weeks ago. In unemployed and at least they could say yes or no. Won't let them send me again to another interview.
