I went to this school in hopes of starting a new career at 46 years old. I went in very skeptical and Janet acted a little put off at the very specific questions I was asking. I asked her about getting a job after I was done. That was, after all, the reason I was there. Not to line their pockets with more money.

I asked her how did the job placement work after I was done and she said they would "place" me somewhere and that they had a lot of regular places they worked with to place their new graduates. She said they would call them, set up the interview, and then speak with them again after the interview and go from there. That never once happened.

The places she printed out for me to go apply at were all places off the internet, like Craigslist, that I had already saw, and never once did she call them! I asked a couple of those places that Janet claimed had "contacted" them for bartenders if that was true and they both said no. One place even laughed and said that "school is a scam". I knew at that point I had been ripped off.

I tried over a month to get a job with no luck. Janet insisted that I must be interviewing wrong, or wearing the wrong clothes or makeup, or any other lie she could think of to put the blame off on me. I can promise you, there is no rebuttal that neither her or big mouth Beth Merrill can come up with that is the truth and will get them off the hook for being a big fat rip off!! If they try to hide this report or put up a rebuttal, rest assured I will come right behind them and give a rebuttal right back. If I can save one person from their rip off con artist tactics then it is worth it.

Do not go to this school. It is a joke! Save your $895.00

Oh, and the LIE about my schedule

AUTHOR: D. Green - ()

Really Beth!? You better be careful what you say on here liar. Everything has a paper trail. I can get proof of every place I applied that I marked open schedule, work any day any hour. Not sure where you come up with that crap. Inside that sick little brain of yours. Like I said, better be careful. These reports don't go away. Don't say something you can't back up! And you know damn well that is all a lie. Lying piece of crap that you are. Thats pretty funny considering I left my job to BE A BARTENDER YOU D******. Whats wrong, a little scared your business might go down? You should be. Desperation brings lies obviously. I'm going to make damn sure this whole city knows what a piece of crap you are. And no, I'm not the only one. I have found a few more. So you keep telling yourself you have had a great record for 20 years, you will be the only sick one that believes that.

LOL That is a joke!

AUTHOR: D. Green - ()

HA! That is funny Beth. Where are these places that you sent me that offered me employment?? Why not list them, I'm sure they would love to know that you are using their name to further your rip off tactics. The only place you sent me was OP Elks Lodge, working one day a week, really?

Lets see, I remember the both of you saying..."You will make back what you spend in a couple weeks" Really? Working one day a week at Elks?! And she did not offer me the job. I would like to know of all these places that you sent me that offered me a job, because I guarantee you I would be working at one of them if they had. Janet knew my situation when I came there and you guys ran with my debit card to your machine. You couldn't get my money fast enough.

You guys didn't "SEND" me anywhere. The places I went, I went on my own. The crap you pulled from the internet was some of what I had already applied for. I specifically asked a couple of those places about them contacting you for bartenders and they both laughed and said you were a scam. They don't hire people just because they go through your school. I specifically remember Janet telling me your "process" after graduation. You supposedly have this big list of places you work with and you guys will set up the interview and send me there. Not pull crap off the internet that everybody has access to and just go blind to these places that laugh at your business or don't have a clue who you are.

There is no rebuttal you can say that I can't shoot down because you are a big mouth liar. I think you feel like if you talk loud enough that people will listen and buy your crap. Thats why you can't stand me because I can see right through your type. The only reason you are pissed off about this Rip Off Report is because you can't buy them off so they will bury this. Sorry, not happening. Believe me, I will make sure for years to come that my reports, and compalints against you don't go away. If I can save one poor person from giving you their last dollar, which you would gladly take, it is worth it.

I never expected a guarantee of employment, it's against the law. But you should at least honor what is on your website. Run and change it if you want. I have a screen shot of the page I am talking about. I will post that to the world as well if need be.

You must be available for work!

AUTHOR: Beth - ()

We did indeed send Ms. Green on (at least five) multiple, scheduled job interviews- and she was offered the positions! She herself turned them down due to her own scheduling restrictions (only able to work four hours a day, limited weekends and absolutely NO Sundays). We received angry phone calls from our clients asking why we had sent someone who was so limited in her availability!!!!

We did counsel Ms. Green on her appearace, as we do all applicants seeking employment; she was not singled out. We are forbidden by law from "guaranteeing" employment to anyone, but the applicant must try as well. As far as we know, she has accepted a position bartending at one of our client's temporary service where she can pick her own schedule.

I suppose my record speaks for itself as this is the one and only "Ripoff Report" in almost 20 years.
