Quite often companies fall into the trap of using a temporary labor agencies job descriptions that are not clearly defined and way to broad. In fact many times these descriptions are not more than catchall categories. As an example, can someone please tell me what job descriptions fall into the industrial work category? For each of you that try, we will most likely end up with a collection of descriptions that are several multiples larger than the number of people responding. In fact, this is what agencies are looking for because “One mans meat is another mans poison”. Without a clear definition you are at the mercy of sourcing agencies. An example might be how an agency differentiates between a secretary, administrative assistant and an executive assistant and how they up charge for each.
