Vendor Markup

By Tim Heard ·
Have you had any situations in which you have been on a contract, only to later discover that the vendor that supplied you to the client was charging an outrageous markup? If you have a good story that you'd like to share for an article, please email me at Otherwise, feel free to discuss here.

I'm also curious what you consider to be fair. That's the subject of the article I'm working on.

$10 hourly, client charged $125?

by mike In reply to Vendor Markup

I interviewed for a direct hire position where the employer does POS sales/service to the hotel/restaurant industry. He uses MICROS software. He had the nerve to tell me he wanted to start me at $10 when he charges the client $125. Any guesses what I told him?
