This is what I know. They DO NOT talk to any contruction companys. They send junk mail to them with your name and qualifications. If they read it and they trust in a company they have never talked to that their screening procedures are solid and the people who are listed can actually do what they say they can...you might get a call.. I ask you, if you were the owner of a mulit- millon dollar construction company would you do that?
By the way, the book of companys the claim to have an "relashionship" with do not all get the pubs (publications). they only send a few out a week. Your info may never get to the one fool who might trust in a company they never have talked to and hire a man who might or might not have the qualifications they claim. (I personally belive the state lottery is your best bet)
I asked Christine, my wife, to make her business honest by calling these construction companys and asking if there is actually jobs avalible. She agreed for one day. After having a shouting match with her mother, who sent her cash to quiet her down, she told me to mind my own business and it cost too much to call long distance to the islands. I told her email was free, as well as internet phones,( i.e. vonage) she made no further attempt to contact employers.
Next, they claim to have a good standing with the Better Business Bureau. go to www.betterbusinessbureau.com/south-east-florida and view thier rating. There is none. It state "this business is not accredited" and shows "no rating"
They take down payments but do not release your info untill the balance is paid. They consider this thier best business because when the husband returns home and his wife slaps him for giving away $250-300.00 for nothing they dont throw good money after bad and the company keeps the money and dose nothing to earn it. The service is for 2 years but if you give them half the money and stop, they give you no service...not even the year your deposit paid for. By the way if you dont send the "post cards" saying you havent found a job ..they stop sending your info, even if you have years of time left on your contract. They have no idea if anyone has ever got a job from their service. all of the "testimonials are fake on their web site. (false advertising) if put on a stand and asked to produce at least five people who got a job since they started in 1991 they could not, even if their freedom depended on it.
This is not Barbra's first corporation by the way. One in Texas claiming to put guys to work on oil rigs got her a one way ticket out of Texas, with a no return stamp.She claimed in that fiasko that employees were making false claim on the phone to make money...hmmm...now she keeps her new business small employing just her two daughters. Which is smart..what family member would squeel on thier mother? Oh yeh the ex-son in law....opps, thirteen years of being treated like a pice of crap by both the mother and the daughter has a way of catching up to ya!
I have attached a copy of the reciept for Team U S it is peretty much the same as STBII. look under attachments
