The most irritating thing I have noticed is a lack of knowledge of US geography (I've worked in enough global orgs to be able to listen through most accents, and there is enough turnover in recruiters that ignorance of employment law isn't an indication of anything other than ignorance of employment law). It doesn't take very many instances of recruiters contacting you in California about 3 month contracts in Minnesota or Georgia to realize that the person sending the message has no idea where any US location is. Although given the state of the US education system, it is becoming increasingly possible that such messages may be originating from people born and raised right here.
