This is a biographical true story of a "Talent Director" (salesman) who was hired by this traveling irish crew of scam artists and I have the real story. This is a three part story. I was hired on a strict 100% commision as a talent director. all we did in a call center is call your kids and teens and tell them Our talent scouts saw your kid at school and are having auditions for new faces.
we need the parents to come(cause they were the buying party) You are not going to a real audition. It's a school an expensive school at that. the programs will range from $2150. to $7012. everybody gets selected as long as you can pay. They will videotape you on camera and no one will watch the tape. Parents whatever you do. Do not answer the phone if your caller id says John Robert Powers on it. Have your teens google it for yourself to not look like the bad guy.
I want to give you a little backround on the so called "talent directors" as well. If this is still the ever changing staff their qualifications to audition your kids are as follows.
Veronica Izzy- weight-loss industry,plastic surgery sales
Vicki-former Real Estate agent.
Brian Buoni-male stripper, seriously I am not making that one up.
Rhoada- Polish radio announcer/ a*s. manager for disney store.
So their you have it. don't believe me? go on craigslist under jobs. keyword search model school. talent scouts. ohare area. do not work for this sleazy low-life company owned by Colleen Collins. It is straight commision. they will lie and tell you how much you will make. She will make you sign a form stating you will not get paid for at least a month for your first check. She will also have you sign if for any reason you will not give her a two week notice your waive your right to your final paycheck.
The auditions all take place every sunday. If you book all your appointments and god forbid something happens to you on sunday your screwed. you make no money for that whole week. no paid vacation. gruelling illegal hours. revolving door staff. lying all day to kids and their parents. the economy is so bad everybody you will be signing up will be making payment plans and you will only receive 10% of that for every sucker you sign up.
