I agreed to meet 2 recruiters (husband and wife duo) in Encino CA for Trans America just before NYE and am really ticked!! Not only do they call to recruit you stating that you can make all kinds of money but the course fee they charge you for is non refundable after 48 hours.
After 48 hours they claim it is non refundable!! Good way to make money off people who won't be working for you!! *** bags!!! I was told my course fee of $120 would be reimbursed by the recruiter.
The first day I went, I was told by the recruiters that I had to knock on doors, cold call, and bother your family members to get business and if you were to get that business, the people you then recruit (on your own) become the business of the recruiters who recruited you. For example, the husband and wife duo who claimed I would be "sooo" successful wanted me to get business so they could get a piece of the pie!! LOL Sorry, I am not in the market to make some strangers rich when i can find my own success. If you cold call, they set you up on careerbuilder.com to contact anyone that looks good on paper but what they don't tell you is that, there are 50 other recruiters calling that same person.
Family members don't want to be bothered and I sure as *** won't be bothering any friends or family members! I was immediately turned off but knew 1 day too late and my that time I had already paid for the course that I wasn't going to get back! Yes, this is a scam! And stay FAR, FAR away!!!
Their tactic is "you can't get rich working for corporate or an employer" but they fail to tell you, you actually have to "solicit" the business and you don't get much of that business if you are successful soliciting because it goes in the pocket of the recruiter who recruited you. In my opinion, I can get rich working for any employer who pays me the work I put in and not have to "share" it with any recruiters. My advise is before falling into the trap I did and realized, make sure you do your research before having anyone *** you into being a partner.
You can definitely get rich starting any business if you put the work into it, it's just not going to be selling life insurance policies. Douchebags!
