What is up with Highlands Diversified in London? They advertised full-time positions ever since the middle of June and now to find out you have to go thru Nesco? What a crock of shit! If they weren't gonna hire full-time people why post the friggin ad in the paper and online in the first place? What the hell is wrong with companies nowadays? If you are looking for full-time employment, as a job seeker you are screwed. I'm not stupid. I've been down this road before. People, the reason they want you to go to a temp service is so they DON'T have to give you benefits like health, dental and so on. Also, pay you a lousy $7.50-$8.00/hr. I know a lot of good people that took the time to drive over there and put an application in just to have their chain yanked. I am so sick of companies posting ads online when they currently have no openings. Does that make any friggin sense to you? This county needs some new industry that will actually hire decent hard-working people. Anybody wants to comment, feel free. I'm pissed off and ready to hash it out. Anybody works at highlands we would love to hear an explanation as to why that ad was posted for a month and I personally was told by human resources herself that they weren't going to be interviewing.

I know several people that have worked there for years that are currently laid from Highlands Diversified. Some have been told that it could possibly be a permanent lay off. What this means is instead of compensating the faithful employees that earn a fairly decent wage they are laying them off and hiring through temp services so they only have to pay a fraction of the cost. Trust me you do not want a job there any way. Best of luck to ya.
