Generally I’d never post about a negative business interaction. We’ve all worked with bad recruiters, bad employers, bad contractors, and so on. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, and I don’t want to bad-mouth anyone.

That said, TransAmerican has pushed my limits too far. These guys are some sort of ATG recruiting firm or something, I really don’t know. They started calling me perhaps 6 weeks ago, asking if I was interested in a position. I told them very clearly, that I was on a contract which I was very happy with. That I would be at least through the end of the year. And they could call again in January. The same guy called again the next week. And twice every week since. I could not have been more clear, every single time. I was polite, but clear that I was not interested. And it was the same guy calling every time. I don’t know how many ATG architects named Devon at my phone number he’s dealing with, but the complete inability to respect my clear wishes, is amazing.

I will never do business with TransAmerican, and I would recommend that everyone else avoid them as well.
