Re: Re: [sfror] Looking for 2 Lead ROR Developers in SF!

Late to the thread, but I did want to clarify something.

there are two types of recruiters: retained and commission.  I have hired developers before with both types of contracts and paid both types of recruiters fees.  

If the company has retained a recruiter, they have committed to pay that person a flat fee (for the project/month/week/hire/whatever).  If it is a commission based recruiter, that fee is on top of the salary.  For commission based recruiters you do become a less attractive candidate vs. someone who gets into the pipeline without a recruiter.  

If the market is pretty good, companies may not worry about paying commission/fees for the right person.  If the market is soft, its another story.
