JOBLINE MANPOWER SERVICES
I just wanna say something about this manpower agency named JOBLINE MANPOWER SERVICES, located at Aurora Blvd., Cubao, Quezon city. They are giving flyers and joining jobfairs along the Metro. At first look you wouldn’t think that there’s somethin’ fishy going on because of the uniforms they’re wearing and their so called “jobslots” they’re saying. With that comouflage jobseekers like me will easily fall. Exam is their first process for the new applicants. Then followed by the interview after you passed the exam. In the interview they are asking you to pay the amount of P500 for the medical fee( a medical fee without any company to work in yet is really questionable). But if you haven’t that amount yet, they’ll just take an amount which you can give in that time (as partial pay). I paid the medical fee and took the med exam in a clinic which they only refer. The med exam is composed of fecalysis, urinalysis, hematology and xray. My nurse friend told that the med exam only cost P300. I took and paid the med exam because i really want a job. After the med the next process is orientation, they are talking about the possible positions we may work in. In the end of the orientation they are now asking again for an amount of P50 for the agency ID from you, they said we should have it because all transactions will be entertained if you have that said ID. (The ID is only in typical sized with my name and the agency name printed on it and not even laminated, geez that ID is really expensive.)
In the next day when all things are paid, made and done, it’s now the deployment day! We went to the company that the agency referred to us. Unluckily when we are in that said company that’s the time when we realized that the company they referred to us was not good. The company’s daily salary is below the minimum wage (P200) with a 12 hours of work, without an overtime pay and without even any benefits… HELL yeah of course we refused that, who would want to work in that “win-lose” job? That company is making a big profit but their employees are not! Not only that, the agency made a job mis-match! The available position in that company is “Machine helper” geez it’s really not in my line… I don’t fit there and my qualifications don’t even so.
curse that JObline manpower services! They are making money out of all the applicants they’re accepting everyday! While their dismayed applicant like me is in regret, jobless, fooled and deceived!
But now, I learned my lesson, I’ll never trust any agency that easy again….
