I work as a contractor and have worked for several companies (referred by different recruiting firms) already. I have a feeling: Whether I can get the project or not heavily depends on which recruiting company refers me.
I am wondering if I need to be careful in the future to find out if the recruiting company has a good relationship with the hiring company. I am wondering if these recruiting companies have some kind of un-open deal with the hiring managers........

It's very common for recruiting firms to have "exclusive" or "semi-exclusive" contracts with certain companies, although it's less common in this economy. You need to decide which recuiting firms you want to deal with.
