Operon Resource Management is at it again!

Operon Resource Management is a temp agency that is supposedly hiring for a company in Hudson NH for Atrium Medical. This is the biggest scam and a waste of time and gas out there. They have you arrive for an application session which takes 1.5-2 hours. Then after that they have you go to another orientation which is another couple of hours. They have you take all these exams and then say that they will call you when a position becomes available. The only problem is there are NO positions available and they will give you one excuse after the other.

Here's how I know this. A few years back my wife applied to work for them. She has experience working in a manufacturing environment as well as great references. They tell you that you do not need experience just a good work history and 2 professional references. She has both of those. She went to the application session and they called her back for the orientation which is not paid. She aced all of the exams that they gave her.

They told her that they would be calling her back and that she should follow up if she didn't hear anything. She called them several times and was given excuse after excuse. Then they called her with another position available and wanted to make sure they had her correct references because they wanted her to start the next day. Well an hour later that position that they told her they had was posted on Craigslist and they never contacted her again.

I replied to an ad that this agency had on Craigslist stating that they were a scam and they never had any positions available. I was told that they have high expectations and not everybody gets in. The problem with that is there was no reason that they could not hire my wife. I want to let everyone know to not waste their time with these people. They obviously are doing this to fill a quota and I will be contacting whoever posted this ad again. The ad currently is located at http://nh.craigslist.org/mnu/4392862091.html. I will also post the content of this ad because the Craigslist posts don't stay up too long. Also, there have been several people who have had the same experience with them so it was not just her. I will keep this blog updated with their email response if they have one.

  1. I have heard horror stories of people working at Atrium. I have been in manufacturing for over 35 yrs and know the going pay rates for a position that they are advertising and they do not pay even close to what they should for the level of knowledge required for the job. Several people that I know have actually worked there (not for long though, because there are better paying positions like this one) and had to jump through hoops exactly like you are describing. Now Atruim is throwing in a new name with Operon to make people think they are applying to a different place. Unfortunately this scam happens at a lot of places. There are at least a dozen places that I have applied to in the past that have given me the same kind of run around you have described and it is sickening that they have the upper hand because the unemployment rate is so high. Thank you for your post, I hope it gets to the right people to help them get past this enormous hurdle in their search for work.

  2. I have been working through Operon in central Mass for 7 months now and, for the most part, they're pretty great. Sorry your experience with them has been less than satisfying :(
