I took off work in June, 2005 after being contacted by Chandler Hill to meet with Sara Bramble. It was a wasted day. I was asked to bring in a resume. I have several, but they wouldn't be specific about what they wanted. I took the longest one I had that I use to edit for specific jobs I may be interested in should a company require one. She was critical of it, of course.
After listening to a sales pitch from a basic marketing primer, I was asked to take the Briggs-Myers test. I was instructed to fill out a questionnaire and take one home to my wife to fill out. I asked one question, What will this cost me? She said she didn't know, and bragged about her company's ability to assist me with a job search and guaranteed me I would find a job in less than 3 months, and they would continue representing me for 3 years.
She claimed her company has a 96% success rate, but never really said what the 96% represented, maybe their success of get money of suckers that fall for the BS she piled on. I had to take a questionnaire home with me for my wife, and she would have to accompany me on my second trip to meet with my counselor.
She is my partner and best friend, but not likely to accompany to an office. At no time did she indicate that she had a list of clients that were seeking talented people for positions they were trying to fill, quit to the contrary. She inferred they had clients that contacted them for people from time to time, but offered no proof. I sat down and filled out the test and questionnaire and thought about her response to the cost question and felt her response was inappropriate. No talented individual should have to pay for job. Companies pay fees for those individuals.
The whole process was reminiscent of an experience with another company a few blocks away, Bernard Haldane. I called my wife and told her how disappointed I was and she looked Chandler Hill on your site. Lo and behold, there they were in crowning glory, ripping people off. Thank you for your website. Keep up the good work. I have since starting looking at every company I get a response from.
