*Consumer Comment: please use common sense
*UPDATE Employee: We are sorry
The training consists of paying about $3000 for one of their other "models" (who can't get work) to tell you very basic stuff that anyone would already know. And the classes rarely last the three hours they are supposed to. One day our "teacher" tried to wrap up our class after 45 minutes!
You will be made lots of promises that won't be kept or even acknowledged. And they will keep on enticing you with promises of work and money by bleeding more money from your pocket.
If you try to get out of your contract, you will get only a small fraction of your money back.
If you really do have potential, any reputable agency will train you themselves for nothing, because they see you as an honest investment. Any agency that wants to charge you (aside from charging you for photos... that is legit) for "lessons" or to "put your name out there" is a scam.
So in a nutshell, JC is not the only scam talent agency, but it is one of the most widespread. Don't waste your money, no matter how many pretty promises they make or how much they raise your self esteem. You are nothing to them but a wallet.
