I've use recruiters both when looking, and as an employer. By far the best I've ever used (in both cases) is David Freier of ICI (617-566-6121, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org).* He is honest, reliable, and doesn't just represent any company who has .com in their name. Winter Wyman is fairly reasonable. They're a pretty big firm. Remmington wasn't all that great, and rather then send candidates to us, they wanted us to go to them. KForce are sleazeballs. As a candidate, they ignored what I wanted and sent me to any company they could think of. Whenwe worked with them to as an employeer, they didn't seem to have their employees best interests at heart, and seemed more interested in making money. At one point, they did something to me bordering on a felony (but I'm no lawyer, so I can't say for certain). I will never work with them again.

He's been good to us, and I just want him to know we appreciate that and refer business to him.) [This message has been edited by Mark Herschberg (edited January 12, 2001).]

hi this is Davis.hello to all the members....... I'm also searching for headhunters in Texas area....I agree with you.. I really appreciate your suggestions. There are too many headhunters and its very hard to filter them out, unless someone already been with them.... ------------------------------ Davis.
