Here's the bottom line...I used to work for them and yes, very shady things go on inside the walls of that establishment.In my time working there I realized that the whole company is a drug front.
The President Mike Riley and supervisor Kurt Taylor are the ones in charge of it all (who are both always very loaded on the job). Countless times did i see strange characters walk into the office straight past the receptionist into mikes office get what they needed and as their walking out kurt says "he took care of you?" Anyways, why do you guys get mad at the employees or so called "talent reps"? When interviewed and hired we are all told, your going to make more money than any other job, your going to have an important position in the entertainment industry. Hello sign me up right?
NO! your put in an office cubical with a p.o.s. phone number and given a script telling you exactly what to say. Once they have you set up at a desk Kurt says "stick to the script, it will get you the cards" (credit card numbers).
as he goes back into his office and takes calls all day from people who want their money back. Look I needed to pay my bills I needed to provide for my family, all this stuff about company legitimacy started to unfold slowly (and then I quit). But what you people need to realize is that NOBODY, NOBODY, NOBODY who works there goes by their real name. Blast these people all you want online in these blogs but good luck finding them, its not their real name.
and really all it is at the end of the day is blog chatter nothing is going to happen to them. See the reason they have been in bu business for ten or twelve years or whatever the *** is because of two things...1. all you guys do is blog about it on these scam and ripoff sites, DO SOMETHING MORE ABOUT IT AND SOMETHING MIGHT HAPPEN!! Nothing is going to happen to them because of one or a thousand scam reports.
and they go on the scam blog reports anyways and write *** testimonials backing up the company! 2. They are smarter than you, when you get a phone call from them they say very technical words that walk a gray line such as...were a talent marketing firm, we are your talent rep, membership, help you as much as i can. The people who are excited to give over their credit card number thinking there being promised overnight celebrity status this is what they heard...were a full service agency, we want to be your agent, we will make you a celebrity overnight!.
get the picture???? once the no sleep stage high wears off on these people and they realize "oh *** i just gave away nearly 400 bucks to people i don't know wait Ima call them back and get that money i made a boo boo.
well they wont return my money cause its a "membership" boohoo ima write a scam report.sorry sweetie that's not getting your money back nor will it affect the company, they get a quarter million hits on their website a month, its on to the next "client" Do what you want with this you guys eat it up got plenty of more info just ask cant post big stuff though because people, WOULD GO TO JAIL and another thing as much as you hate the company, dont hate the employees , they get reated and are left in the dark just like the clients!!!
