Complaint Review: Transition America, Brentwood, TN
Transition America, Brentwood, TN5141 Virginia Way, Suite 225 Brentwood, Tennessee U.S.A.
Transition America, Limited Services with no real job opportunities, high cost, beware Brentwood Tennessee
After an initial meeting, I was assigned a career counselor, Mr. Rick Hirsch. Over the course of the next several weeks, Mr. Hirsch and I met weekly and went thru their "plan". At first, the course seemed to have value. They deteremine your strengths and weaknesses, as well as give you some interviewing tips. I did find some of it worthwhile, but most was rehash of what I already knew about myself. Mr. Hirsch and I actually got along pretty well. He did give me login information to a supposedly "paid-site" that listed exclusive not-listed positions in specified geographical areas. I used the site for approximately a week or two and discovered the same postings on other job boards. So it was not as exclusive as advertised.
After the research, resume creating and self-searching was done, the next step was a "mock interview". The mock interview was with one of the partner/owners who plays the part of business hiring executive. The interview was to be video-taped for later review, which I found out the camera malfunctioned. I did find some of the interview tips helpful however.
After the mock interview was completed, I never heard from them again. I inquired approx. 2 weeks later and was told that we needed to do the interview again and that the company "was undergoing changes, so it would be awhile before I could reschedule."
I re-inquired about 2 weeks later to find out the phone number was disconnected and that they had basically disappeared. It was then that I knew I had been ripped off! I hardly received $4,000 worth of services and because I did not receive a single interview much less improve my situation, I wasted my time and money.
I think they have a new name now, "Nashville Career Center" to carry on the same scam. Stay away from these guys!
