Review 4/19/2010
This Place is a complete scam! My husband and I replied to an add in the Los Angeles Times and were both offered a job interview. We went to the location on April 14 & 15th 2010! The woman who we spoke to when we called the phone number is the same lady who you see when you enter the office, Joy. She acts like she is not the person who you speak to when you call but this is just the beginning of her mis-leading antics. She seems to be so inviting and helpful. She also plays out to me very reassuring in telling you that she is not a agency, because agencies don't give you any options and with her you have the right to choose! She asks you to fill out an application in which you are to provide you social security number, she than asks for $10.00 to cover a background check fee. She has you take a test, marks your wrong answers and than shows you the answer key to convince you that you are wrong, there were some questions that I was positive that I answered correctly but according to her answer key were incorrect. She than tells you how poorly you scored on the exam and sells you a book for $85.00 and tells you that if you cant study on your own than she can have you assigned to a tutor near your home which can help you pass the test, and for $250.00 she can guarantee that you get a job with the U.S. Government! This is a total scam and it is sad that she is taking money from people like myself and my husband who are barely making it and have three children to feed! She promises employment and all she is selling is false hopes! I know that we should be smarter than we were to believe such a thing but when you are desperate to find work in our horrible economy you will try anything! "We were mis-led and mis-informed" Please do not give your money to this woman and this fake Agency!
