This is how H1B works:-
Category A: (Indian Students Converts)
(i) Students who go to legit BIG NAME colleges and get legit education. -> (less than 1%) Get hired on H1B directly by firms whom THEY ARE WORKING FOR.
(ii) Students who go legit “STATE UNIVERSITIES” and get legit education. Graduate and have about 2 years OPT VISA to work. They join small companies “CONSULTANICIES” (Go on Sulekha.com OR type “FREE IT Training and Placements” on google~1000s of companies like this will pop-up). These so called consultancies provide so-called training. Training is about showing you what the interface looks like and faking experience. After 2-3 months, these companies begin to market you. They show experience from 5-12 years on your resume. So you go and work as a “CONTRACTOR” and hence no background check. You go and work for a company like IBM, Accenture, Microsoft Deloitte or even government Dept. like “Department of Labor”, WHO have sub-contracted the work to indian companies like “Infosys”, “Tech Mahindra”, Cognizant Solutions, Wipro and Satyam Computers, TATA Consultancy. The jobs-contracts last from 2 months-5 years (depends how lucky you get). Once hired-after weeks or months, coworkers/bosses can tell that you faked experience but it is almost impossible to fire due to corporate hierarchy and politics. After Serving on few contracts like these, The fake candidate becomes real candidate with experience. Also to mention, It is interesting to know that phone interviews are taken by some other person, by using call-forwarding feature on applicant’s phone. Skype-Interviews are also faked by someone else speaking while the job-applicant simply pretends to talk.
(iii) People who go to fake universities to keep their OPT work permits active or even compete for H1b. Universities who lack affiliation with the department of education, like – University of North America and University of Northern Virginia.
Category B: Experienced professional from India. Like a .net senior developer or architech who makes 120K in U.S., comes from India on H1 & L1 to get paid 60K or 70K.
The current H1/OPT/L1 program is not attracting the smartest talent but the most crooked talent….suffocating not only fresh college graduates but even experienced technology professionals who have followed the righteous path throughout their life….by working in retail stores and going to college by taking federal loans. We are not bringing Einsteins and Bose in the country….but IT slaves who can work for their slave-masters for minimal wages while killing JOBS FOR FELLOW AMERICANS….and providing no incentives for the youth of this country to become Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs. “Former International Student from India” Now a fellow American by following the righteous path!!DannoParticipantFebruary 26, 2017 at 7:23 amPost count: 1
25+ years as a top performer in Network Engineering/Ops, and now find myself out of work. I have two kids just starting College.
My former employer (Large Financial Firm) supplemented their bloated quota of TATA, HCL, Infosys, etc., with newly opened subsidiaries in Asia. This Corp tactic drastically accelerates American worker eliminations well beyond the normal H1B quotas.
With new Certifications, I hit the job trail early on, and posted resumes on all the Boards. I only get inquiries from Indian Recruiters – for short contract, low paying jobs out of state. Even when you do show interest in a position, they never follow-up with you.
After almost 5 months of this same routine, I’m feeling like it’s time to finally leave tech for good.
btw : I would’ve gladly agreed to a reduced salary that equaled the foreigner taking my job, but we never hear this option.j gilmanParticipantMarch 30, 2017 at 7:24 amPost count: 1
Recently got a contract job at Gap Corp. I walked in and found a warehouse size are filled with Indian contractors. I found out that most of them were there on “vacation” or “training” visas, not H1B. Thoughtworks and Infosys were cycling programmers in and out as their visas expired. Must have been 200 to 300 people. Needless to say, they didn’t need me for very long.DICEEDISONParticipantMarch 30, 2017 at 4:48 pmPost count: 1
American public has been concerned about the hiring practices of US companies for the last 15 years. JPMorgan Chase Co. is one of them now. The Bank has now a notorious reputation because of a low level of professionalism of many of its employees. It has been hiring dozens of thousands Asians instead of Americans for the last two decades in US. It is not only IT departments and related business areas that have been stuffed with Indians, Chinese and Pakistani, it is practically all the bank’s departments. There are Indians occupying many positions in Human Resources, Administration, Client Services, Legal, Operations, Compliance and business fields. The bank has been replacing Americans with foreigners, especially with Indians, and Pakistani for many years. As a rule, most of these employees were admitted to the US on the basis of temporary or non-immigrant visas or permits, or are members of the non-immigrant families. Frequently, they are incompetent, and unqualified to do their jobs. Such employees of the bank as Anupa Patel, Pin Su, Shibnum Blewett, Vinay Kumar, Shofiur Razzaque, Pamita Bhandari, Yiserlyn Marte, and many others are not qualified to do their jobs, as they have neither educational, and professional background nor a standard level of competence. They were hired for qualities other than professional ones. And the bank has got thousands of such people. These employees are not “TALANT”. Many of them get transferred around all the time as they do not have capacity to meet the bank’s expectations. As a result many teams are experiencing multiple challenges, problems, and failures to meet clients’ and Executive Management’s expectations. Many Indians, Chinese, and Pakistani work already as managers at the bank and as managers, they hire people, and they prefer to hire people like them for their teams, intentionally blocking hiring of Americans. Despite the fact that the bank needs highly professional and experienced people, and there are many job seekers who are highly qualified specialists in their areas, these new bank managers deliberately don’t hire them. These managers strongly resist to hire qualified and experienced Americans. After 4 months of searches for candidates for vacancies these managers report to Executives that there are no qualified candidates in US, and then the bank arranges for hiring Indians in US or for employment-based visas for Indians and Pakistani, Most current permanent and temporary vacancies at the bank, especially in New York are being reserved only for Asians. The employees in managerial positions avoid hiring Americans. We believe that all Indians, Pakistani and Chinese who were admitted to the US on the basis of temporary or non-immigrant visas or permits should be dismissed and replaced only by American citizens. We want the federal authorities to start a review of the hiring practices of the bank and obtain the corporate records on the quantities of foreigners hired by the bank for the last 15 years.
We believe that the current hiring practices of the bank are inappropriate and hazardous to Americans. The bank should start again hiring employee for professional qualities such as competence, knowledge, diligence, responsibility, and stop hiring people for biological qualities, such as gender, sex, race, ethnicity, physical state, sexual intercourse.
