Talent6.com was one of the searches that came up when I was looking for some part time work, so I called the 800 number that was in the ad.

I found that Talent6.com was explained rather well by the representative and pretty much all of the details were laid out. One of the things I learned was that a lot of people don't realize that you have to take a proactive approach to the service and spend some time marketing yourself.

Complaints for Talent6.com

1) They come off as a Talent Agency but they are not. They are in fact a Talent database and you have to search for work yourself.

2) Talent6.com does gurantee you will get an offer in 90 days, but like me a lot people can't wait 90 days

3) While I did figure out rather quickly Talent6.com was not a job for hire and I decided to take part since it sounded good to me, I don't like the job board advertising.

Overall I happy with the service but do not like the marketing.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Talent6.com is a Major Talent Venue Casting for L.A. Ink & Biggest Loser

AUTHOR: Richard Porter - (U.S.A.)


I am pleased that you said you liked Talent6.com overall and definitely apologize for the marketing techniques. Sometimes our marketing firms we contract with do not always follow the strict guidelines laid out by Talent6.

We are a major talent venue and have recently worked with L.A. Ink and The Biggest Loser among many others. Just simply do a Google for "Talent6 & LA Ink" or "Talent6 & Biggest Loser". I can assure you that if we were anything other than legit, they would not rely on us in such a critical manner. Same for ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW and MTV whom our members have privileged access to their casting calls.

Now to address the complaints here and other places. Talent6.com has had over 1.3 million members sign up over the past 4 years. I did an exhaustive search and found about two dozen online complaints posted by 16 unique people over a four year span.

The usual online complaint ratio to actual complaints, industry wide is about 129:1 meaning 1 online complaint for ever 129 issues. Given those numbers one could deduce that 129 X 16 or 2064 complaints in four years out of more than 1.3 million.

That is about a 99.998% customer satisfaction. No industry is 100% and Talent6.com is very proud of its high satisfaction rating.

Most of the complaints come from people that simply do not understand that Talent6 is not a talent agency, we are a talent venue that provides online access to tens of thousands of casting calls and casting directors.

If you take a proactive approach and use the tools and instructional videos provided, you will be successful. This is the basis of our 90 day guarantee. If you are not contacted in 90 days you can get your money back. Plain and simple.

We have thousands of members that have been with us for years and look forward to you finding success with Talent6.com
