    Default Principal Technologies

    Has anybody ever had a good, bad or indifferent experience with this company?

    Ok well it appears nobody has dealt with them before, my advice is dont from past experience I lost out on a good job because they dropped the ball and did not follow through. When I called Cameron to find out what was going on Principal got very upset and recinded the offer...even though Cameron told me to deal with them anytime I needed anything.

    doesn't sound like that good of a job if that is typical of communication. I would say you dodged a bullet

    you might try posting this in the business exchange section or best & worst, you might get more response there, just a thought

    I am currently an employee with PT, and have been on an "assignment" for 4 years (12/13). I will have been with PT 5 years in May. I haven't had any problems with them, except I feel they aren't very good communicators. Once I emailed the lady who handles PR, and another emailed me back "informing" me of her death.....then recently I saw a blurb in the Business section that PT had hired a man (because its mainly a Woman Co) to oversee the construction of a new office building for Principal. I thought it would have been nice to receive an email or something informing us "Contractors" of the latest....

    I have worked with them many times and haven't had one problem at all and have actually recommended them to others looking for work and employees.

    Thanks for the replys....I was just wondering but I found out through another company I lost a job because of PT's poor communication. I like dealing direct with employers, afterall it is my future, they did not like that..Guess I am a little bitter because it also cost me a fiance'...cant move without a job though..

    I had no problem contracting through them, the problem was is when I interviewed with Cameron, they told me to call them if I ever had questions, so I did...well word got back to Principal and the people at Principal got very upset with me...

    On another occasion with another company I was told by Principal to be in town on a certain date and go talk to a certain person at another company...so I flew in, went to this company and they had no idea I was supposed to be there and had no job for me..there went about $600.00..

    At least Cameron covered my $900.00 bill for me...so that made me think they were serious and I made plans to move down...then Principal calls me and says they recinded the offer...to this day I cant get an exact answer why...

    WOW!!!!!!! Now that's some bad PR right there - sorry that happened to you...

    Have you dealt with Pam there? She's like the owner....if I were you, I'd write a big time complaint letter....

    I have talked to Pam in the past. She's great. When you work with recruiters, aren't they supposed to talk to the company's for you? I thought that was how it worked anyway. I can't believe a company would recind an offer over a simple phone call. Maybe there were other things at play--the economy maybe? Dodged a bullet is right. Sounds like it wasn't the best place to go. I don't know. At least you got reimbursed!!
