Nonetheless, we were pretty much sold until he presented us with the fee and left us to discuss it amongst ourselves. Of course, we were not going to drop $4500 without checking them out further - what are we, crazy? When he came back and we told him we would be talking this over with some people first, that's when he got nasty. He questioned our desire to discuss it with a career advisor I know (WHo does she work for? WHy don't you just go to her then? SHe'll just charge you by the hour") and my father in law ("Well who is he? What the hell would he know about this?") I realized by saying we wanted to talk to others, we had undermined his plan to have all the decisionmakers (me and my husband) there at his salespitch so he could close the deal there and then.
After rudely questioning over and over again our desire to get the advice of others, he finally pushed me too hard and I blurted out "Listen, to be blunt I am going to check up on your company." At that point, he lost all interest and my alarm bells went off. Any salesman who doesn't want you to check out his product should be run away from - very fast! When he realized we weren't biting, he could no longer give us the time of day. He hustled us out of his office, saying someone else was waiting, and he didn't even shake my hand as we left. He knew that as soon as we started asking questions, he would never see us again.

One baldfaced lie he did tell regarded the contract. The services are brokenvdown into Phases. Phase I, which encompasses the resume and interview training constitutes 75% of the fee. He told me this was for income taxes purposes so the fee could be written off, but I understand now from reading other reports on this company that it is so they don't have to provide much of a refund because by the time you realize you want one, you have already consumed most of the services.
