I came across this security school on Craigslist and submitted my resume. I received a call which scheduled me to come in for a meeting with a representative, which required me to also bring $90 up front. At the meeting I was then told of the additional fees for the 8hr and 16hr courses. The bill was a total of $230 plus a $60 fee if I did not pay up front.

The classrooms were very congested and seats were foldable steel chairs. The instructors were not very professional and the rooms were very dirty and unorganized.

On the ad, it promised that we would start as soon as out training was finished, however, upon completion of the necessary certifications I learned that we would not get jobs, but rather would be sent to a security company at which we had to apply for a job. I was promised a career, not a job, however I received neither. Instead, they told us we would have to schedule interviews.

I understand that this is a training school and I did receive my certificates. But I do not appreciate the falso hope that their ads have provided. I only paid because I thought at the end I was promised employment, but instead I spent almost $300 and still have no job.
