Last year I was appy told meroached by Career Solutions after putting my resume on Career Builders. It sounded like it was a real company calling about a real position.  Unfortunately, I fell for it and went to an interview with them the next day.  After giving me this great "sales pitch", they told me I had to come back with my wife the next day.

The next day they gave us the greatest "Timeshare like sales pitch" and we signed the contract ( which they told us did not have to be read in its entirety since it was basically the same thing we discussed the day before). Unfortunately for me, the day before they gave me all kinds of assurances that I would find a job within a couple months and that I would be in demand because of my experience and education. I should have known better because all these things were not written in the contract.

After a few months I told them I was a little leery of the whole thing since no one had gotten me an interview with the "tons" of inside contacts they supposedly had. They also told me that I had to do the work and go out there and network to find a job while they were looking for me.
After that I got upset and decided to not use them anymore and then tried to get my credit card company to chargeback the amount to them. Then I received a threatening e-mail from Career Solutions accusing me of trying to fraudulently get their services for free and that they would start legal proceedings against me. I decied to drop the whole thing for fear of losing the case.

They are scam artists who hide behind an airtight contract which you sign after they give you their great sales pitch. Once you realize you were taken, it is too late and your money is gone and you still don't have a job.

STAY AWAY FROM CAREER SOLUTIONS !!

AUTHOR: rage2012 - (United States of America)

After reading my own report on career solutions I realized that, after everything is said and done, it is the consumer's responsibility to read a contract. No matter what was said verbally, if it is not in the contract it is non-binding.

Career solutions had an airtight contract and I should have read everything before taking the plunge. It was my own fault for not being more vigilant.

Lesson learned.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Sue 'em if you still have time

AUTHOR: Bob - (U.S.A.)

You should talk to a lawyer about all of this.  Unless you have waited too long, they may be liable under Title 44 of the Arizona Revised Statutes regarding deceptive trade practices.  Go that route and don't worry about their threats.  You probably have up to a year to challenge the credit card charge and there is really no chance they want to be in court explaining their bad behavior to a judge.
