I've been a Hall Kinion contractor for about 3 months now.

Something that folks might find interesting is that they're offering a bonus to their contractors in the form of receiving "fully vested options".

I'm not sure what this may say about management or the health of the company, but I think that they're offering something to an audience that isn't necessarly ready or suited for the stock market and all of it's folly.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

footnotes:
The deal is working a certain number of hours is a given period; last one was over the christmas season, this latest one is over the President's day weekend, and still one would have to work 180 hours between Feb 12 and Mar 11 (Do the math for a second: 4 weeks x 40hrs/week, and one would still need to squeeze in 20 hours of OT or work a second HK assignment PT)
