but a lot of what is written is true or was- yes, as scouts we had goals of people to scout each day-that's the way it is in any business- so many calls to make, customers to see, money to bring in.
as a talent executive we have to be selective or we get charged back the enrollment if the person isn't qualified.
there is a lot of stuff about some of the people who worked for the company but most of them don't even work here or aren't in charge. cort randell?? he comes here once every 2 or 3 months for a day?
where are these 'insiders' getting their information?
I'm somewhat new as a TE but the older TEs said a lot has changed since we merged with wilhelmina- they've fired a half dozen top people who were caught saying stuff that wasn't correct. in one case it was so minor- the girl implied that we would book the customer on jobs when everyone knows we're a website that AGENCIES use to book the models. totally innocent and had no bearing on whether the girl would sign up- but they fired her anyway.
a lot of this came about because of the wilhelmina deal. they're a huge modeling agency in nyc and wanted to make sure we sell this website the way they want it- in fact they approve our scripts and anything that goes out with the wSN name on it.
as for models not getting jobs, all I can say is every single day, every day at our meetings they hold up photos of models with the name of the agency that booked them and the specific job they did (this is Dave, he got booked by ASAP agency out of Chicago for a 3 day Corona Promotion at $25 an hour for 30 total hours")- stuff like that- then they place those pages in a book that hangs on our wall. I'M NOT SAYING 150,000 MODELS all got jobs every day, but I know every day there are models working because we see it.
I'm not saying we're perfect, and I've seen it as a scout and on the inside, but when you allow postings that say Alec and Dieter are having gay sex to stay up, you should at least put a note saying "we don't know if this is true or not" because it just looks stupid. stuff is starting to change for the better here. but I also understand there's legit criticism out there and that's cool.
I mean, come on- Joe Gomez the brains of the operation?? I've met him once and he's been down in our office maybe twice in the months I've been here. Cory is one of the main guys, as is Pedro. they run the show.
alright, well, just wanted to say my two cents.
peace in da mideast!
