NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
McKenzie Scott Partners Falsified and misleading sales pitch Pittsburgh Pennsylvania
After pulling my resume from an internet career site, (which they claim will not help me find a new career), Mckenzie Scott contacted me. I was given a speech by the office secretary about the positive influence Mckenzie Scott could have on my career search and how it would be beneficial to come in for a no obligation meeting with Dennis Johnston.
Dennis drew a bar graph showing how my resume was only reaching about 10-15% of the job market. They could provide a service that would increase that to 80-85%. This is false information. My phone has not been ringing and my e-mail box has not been filled. All they would need from me was a check and a signature. As I told Dennis I would need some time to consider their fee, he "suggested" very strongly that I provide them the check within a week, as the job market was becoming very volatile, due to the time of year.
Upon discussing the options with my wife, she was asked to come in as a character reference for me. Dennis assured me Mckenzie Scott could help as per his quote, "We wouldn't have taken on your case if we felt we couldn't help." A minimum salary to be searched for was established and I was assured this would be a positive experience.
Not only has the experience been less than positive; I received six (6) phone calls from the 600+ mass mailings sent out by Mckenzie Scott and no interview requests. That is less than a 1% return. I was told that all correspondence, from resumes to cover letters, would be done by Mckenzie Scott on my behalf. Their idea of writing a cover letter consists of three to four sentences as a template and I must complete the body of the letter.
These templates, as well as their proprietary links on their private website set up just for me, can be found at upwards of a 70% capacity on Google or other reputable search engines.
Their fees are outrageous. There is no justification for the fee they charge and the literature they create on my behalf. I was and still am unemployed when they took me on as a client three months ago. What they provide can be found by simply searching the internet. Though their contract clearly states there are no guarantees of employment, their charts and graphs are extremely misleading by showing almost constant upward trends in career searches that are succesful.
Mckenzie Scott does not provide a respectable service. They extract methods and procedures from large internet career search sites and make it their own, at a steep price.
