GUY REJECTS LOW-PAYING JOB OFFER, PUSHY JOB RECRUITER TRIES TO HARD-SELL IT TO HIM

Unethical & pushy job recruiters

Advertisements

So as context, I got offered a job which doesn’t offer a good enough pay package for me to consider moving. When I told my recruiter that, she proceeded to hard-sell me this job and even said some things which I feel are borderline unethical. Things like:

Recession is coming, you don’t take this offer you are not gonna get a better one in the future.

Your other job interview which you went previously (also introduced by her), I feel that there’s little to no chance so you should just take this one since they already offered.

I cannot go back to HR and quote what you wanted, because you haven’t even proven yourself to them so what makes you think you are able to command what you wish to get?

Every time I speak to her I feel so agitated and enraged, it’s so obvious that she just want to get her commission. Wonder if anyone got any other examples of pushy and hard-selling job recruiters?

Netizens’ comments

  1. I didn’t get far in the process, but when I told a recruiter my expected (about 50% more than my then-salary), she tried to argue with me about how it was unrealistic and entitled of me to expect such a huge jump, that I should only expect a 10% raise, maybe 15% at most if I’m lucky, while also ignoring everything I said in return.
    We went on for about 20 minutes until I finally cut it short and said it was my final decision, then the call ended quickly after. A few other recruiters said similar things to me, but since that first experience I learned to tell them straight away that it’s not up for debate, and no need to waste their time.
    Not really sure what they were trying to get out of it, I guess lower expected is an easier sell to the company so they can claim their commission quickly and move on.
  2. Recruiters are in essence, sales people that are selling you (and others) jobs that they can earn commissions on.
    So while, like any sales person, they pledge themselves to find you the best solution (ideal job). But at the same time, the best solution may not yield the sales man/woman the best commissions.
    Also i have read from forums and heard from friends in the industry, of varied stories where Recruiters are always in a mad dash to close the deal(s). If these don’t close a certain quantity within a day/week/month, then they’re on the chopping block.
    The industry used to have a large turnover, similar to insurance agents. Not sure if the environment has improved? 🤔
