Rip-off Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a program that benefits the consumer, which helps to increase consumer satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business.

ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM BAD BUSINESSES.

When a company or individual joins the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Program, they must make a commitment to us in writing to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' What does that mean? It means that Rip-off Report expects that members of our CAP program will review and respond to ALL customer complaints promptly. It means that every complaint will be taken seriously and every customer will be treated fairly and with respect. It means if a customer did not receive what they expected, the company will work with that customer to fix the issue. It means that if a customer requests a refund and if there is any reasonable basis for that request, we expect the customer will be given a prompt refund (some refund requests may not be reasonable, so this does not mean a refund is guaranteed in every case). Making things right can mean lots of different things to different people, but our point is thisby working closely with the company or individual to resolve any disputes, Rip-off Report can track the footprints of customer service to ensure that our CAP members are doing everything they can to treat customers fairly and to increase their customer satisfaction.

===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

===================== Chandler Hill, Sterling Hightower Rip-offs! Sales presentation - career advancement services that amount to a resume for $7400. Dallas Texas

Chandler Hill, is a fraud. The company Chandler Hill has operated under the name Sterling Hightower (Sarah Hightower is the owner) and for the last few months - Chandler Hill. The compay's roots are in web based database search engines sold to other "recruiting" firms.

Chandler Hill pitch includes the following:

1) Brochure touting 44 Chandler Hill Offices -

less than 10 offices are in operation

2) Consultant implies urgency to sign on today to place you with the SR. CAMPAIGN MANAGER citing a personality match - in truth, most offices have only one Campaign Manager.

3) Hard sell on getting client in front of Decision Makers - in fact, no evidence of an outreach to companies at all

4) cLIENT WILL BE TOLD THAT IT WILL TAKE 3 MONTHS TO BE READY TO "WIN THE INTERVIEW" - the reality is that it takes three months for you to pay the total contract amount - before there is any sense of urgency to help you find a new position.

5) A free career assessment - an unqualified sales consultant looks at your resume and gives you reasons why you can't succeed in a career search alone

They Call It - IDENTIFYING THE PAIN, yes the PAIN

6) Chandler Hill claims to be selective in who they take on as a client. In fact, if you have a pulse and can pay a fee of $5,000 - $10,000 you meet their qualifications to be a client.

The reality is that Chandler Hill has 3 basic "FEE STRUCTURES" that are presented in the second meeting based on what the sales consultant thinks the client can pay. They will accept multiple credit card charges and will spread the payments over 3 months with over 50% paid in the first installment. And if you look like a real sucker, they will tack on a final payment 90 days after you accept the position if the client is satisfied with his/her choice to accept the position.

The rub is that the actual service provided is a video taped mock interview, resume revision, web search engine account to do your own company research on the web....

QUESTIONS TO ASK Chandler Hill:

1 - Names and phone numbers of any clients they have found new careers for in the last 60 days...none.

2 - How is the service that you provide different than

Sterling Hightower.

3 - Since the only tangable service provided is a web search engine, ask how long it has been operational in the current revision level & down-time....2 months & frequent.

4 - Can I meet the Sr. Campaign Mgr and other campaign

managers? ...if there is more than one the answer will be yes but they will be unavailable... with a client.

5 - If they have such great resources to deliver DECISION MAKERS why don't they charge companies 1/2 the fee, reducing their cost 200%-400% and charge the employee 1/2 the fee...

NO RELATIONSHIPS WITH EMPLOYERS

I spoke with a sales consultant that confirmed the unethical practices endorsed by the company and I was shown a training manual that is the slickest piece of fiction I have seen.

Chandler Hill & Sterling HighTower SCAMS

AUTHOR: Marcus - (U.S.A.)

I found that in addition to ripping you off with their services it seems that they are a front for a company called Sterling HighTower. You remember the 7500 plus recruiter base you were promised. Well it seems that Sterling is selling access to our resumes to recruiting firms, and the sales pitch and everything is so familiar with what happens to the job seeker that it is uncanny. no wonder why it's so hard to get a job these days with all these scams.

#5 Consumer Comment

Chandler Hill Response - not a denial

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

Interesting that the response from Chandler Hill was not a denial of the claims made by Mark. The response from the company argues that they don't have a client named Mark in Texas.



Congratulations Mark for recognizing a scam when you see one.



And I bet they haven't found a job for anyone named John, Bob, Bill, Tom, Ted, Barbara, Cathy, Kathy, Karen, Julie.....or even Billy Bob.



RUN from this scam....Chandler Hill started as a franchise of Bernard Haldane, a company that is being investigated in three states and has suits pending with the state of Illinois and others.



Bernard Haldane recently changed their name to BH Career Specialists and there are over 300 Rip-Off Reports on this site about Haldane.
