Tamara was the first application I received. We set a time for a phone interview that I had to reschedule at the last minute. She agreed to a phone interview the next evening but never answered her phone. She did not return my voicemail. She did not reach out on this website. Her lack of professionalism and reliability were surprising.

I wouldn't recommend her changes her price at last minute, never able to get in contact with her in a timely manner, not reliable ; my first day starting back working she contacted me and told me she took another job and that she wasn't coming to mine resulting in me having to leave on my FIRST DAY OF WORK. Don't depend on her and she is not reasonable with her prices of those who can't afford 15hr 5 days a week
