Default Hi

For a start i have a quick question, and I would be very grateful for any help. Can somebody please tell me, how can one Recruitment Agency offer 40% higher payment than the other?
I mean does anybody have an idea, I dont want to point fingers until I have at least a clue. It is for the same position, exactly, I am not sure about the ship, but they both work for same Cruise Lines, so I really dont know what to think of it...
Thank you very very much,

One may be showing the entry level pay, while the other may not?

Thank you for the answer Pandaz. The answer could be what you said, but its strange because in the advertisement they do not say that it is for people who already worked on the cruise, it says as the other one -

Potential candidates should have minimum two years master of ceremonies or professional entertainment (theatre, music, dance, comedy, etc.) experience with resorts, cruise lines, entertainment or recreational industries.

Which I have and it was one of the reasons I got in the ˝pool˝... it is very strange..

I`ve sent an email to this second agency, with this question, did not get a reply, so today Ive sent it to my agent and tomorrow I will see what is this all about...

Now that you mention the requirements, it sounds like a cruise staff position. So . . . One could be the 'base pay' and the other with potential commissions from any revenue based activities.

Also - one agency might be taking a big commission off your pay . . . or that have their information wrong.

But, for comparison - the 'average' monthly salary for that type of position would be about $1600 to $2000 US, with a couple of hundred dollars on top of that for commission.
