To Andrew . . . With regards to recruiting firm guarantees. I think you may be dealing with contingency recruiting. That's a whole other industry. In retained search, that's the average guarantee (one year).

Andrew wrote:Mira, your comments are ridiculous. There are no "unclear communications" or "comments from men" that required she take a week off without permission and there are no old people here that do not know how to use email. The kid we fired had a female boss and she had only worked there two months. I was willing to make it a warning, but her boss wanted her fired.


Andrew, I debated on whether to remove that post from Mira. I also thought it was ridiculous, but in my years moderating this forum, we've removed very few posts and I'd like that to continue. I wrote her privately asking for no more of that kind of post, and she never replied here or via private email. I think she was a short-timer on the forum.
