[Histonet] Offended

I Wanted to obtained opinions of Managers/Supervisors in the histo world and how you handle situations regarding recruiters calling directly into Pathology Labs to specific tech's and stating they are seeking referrals for job placements. I recently had an AP staffing solution company call one of my labs to talk to any "histologist"  I felt was to recruit staff.  I feel this is an unprofessional practice to call directly into the laboratory and to hide behind the wording "referrals" when actually it appears they are trying to get information from the tech on the phone seeing if they are looking for a "new job".  I feel that this is an intrusion as well as inappropriate in our line of business and we are not in the business to give referrals to companies in the staffing solution arena for their monetary gain as well as trying to entice  our staff. What the staff does with these types of companies on personal time is their business, however, I think it is offending for companies to demonstrate this behavior.  If anyone would like to know which company and person called into my lab I will personally inform you on private email!
