Jarad Barnes and his dishonest company John Robert Powers Atlanta have ripped off many people. He will get you in telling you that there is an audition for something real, only to find out there is not. He will stand up in a group setting and tell you his success stories that are not real and he had nothing to do with. Tell you your kid is amazing and tell you that he has a spot for your kid. That spot will only be there if you pay thousands of dollars. The real story is that he is going bankrupt. It is finally catching up to him. I have talked to many people that have gone through his overpriced programs and it is not worth the money. That is why no one goes back for seconds. Jarad and his gang of horrible sales people will tell you anything you need to hear to get you to sign on the dotted line. The truth is there is not spot and anyone can join that has a checkbook. In fact i recently found out that they do 2 auditions every single week trying to get as many people in as possible for the group "audition". There is no such thing as "Type Cast" in his company. That is just another tactic to make you think you have to do it right away. It's not hard to see...ask to view one of the classes and you will see the caliber of people in the classes. You will then see for yourself that anyone with money can get in. In fact i bet you will not even be let in, he will use some excuse like, it's not fair to the kids who have paid if you come in the class. He will have a line for everything you say or ask him.
When I went to the audition I went with a few friends and we did not tell them we knew each other. Come to find out we all heard the exact same thing over the phone the next day for the "callback"....hmmm...."Congratulations you child is on our callback list...now they need some training" They had my child go on camera and read a commercial. Then the next day they told me because of the camera audition he needed training...but when I asked them specific questions about the camera part they couldnt answer. My child didnt even read the script...he just stood there and they said "he messed up a bit but they could fix that with training" They obviously did not watch the video at all because my child did not do it at all.
Shame on you Jarad Barnes for being a person who takes peoples money by riding on their hopes and dreams. Please BEWARE of this place and especially JARAD BARNES. He is a bad person that you do not want to leave you child with. He is a liar, a cheat, and a scam artist.
