My husband and I were expecting our first child and as things got tough in a difficult economy, we decided to seek some outside help in finding employment for my husband. He began his job search on various websites and posted his resume for others to see. That is when we got the call from a recruiter from Princeton Executive Group, stating that he had seen my husband's resume on CareerBuilder and that he was a perfect candidate for their company.
My husband met with them first and they asked to meet me as well at our next meeting. They said it was very important as I was an integral part of our well being and future. After speaking to Mr. Robert Milgroom for about one hour and him WOWing us with what his company could offer, claiming that they have the most outstanding contact with top companies, he slipped us a piece of paper, which he told us to discuss in private. He handed us a "Three year Career Advancement Program with Performance Guarantee" that came with a hefty fee for their services of $12,800. Needless to say, we were shocked with the price tag, but accepted, even though it was going to be a huge strain on our home and our wallets.
My husband was instructed to meet with Mr. Jeffery Shyne at their offices. He met with him 3 times and conducted various personality tests to assess what type of work and industry my husband would be adequate in. After the 3rd face to face meeting, and several tests, Mr. Jeffery Shyne said that they could now speak on the phone as opposed to meeting every week and that he should expect his redone resume right away.
We waited for the resume and a list of potential companies, for 1 month and half and never got response. After excuses after excuses, such as his email being down, his website being down, avoiding our calls, not answering our emails and finally sending us emails when he did saying that the company policy was answering calls at the end of the next business day, we began to notice a pattern that we did not like. In one of his emails he sent an email claiming the resume was in an attachment, but he repeatedly sent empty emails with no explanations.
Beware of this company! They are taking advantage of innocent people in these vulnerable economic times. I hope that somebody shuts these people down.
