July 14/2010 I applied as an extra background actor with Alliance Artists Management Group. I was told because of my age and availablity that they would keep me very, very busy. Next I was convinced to pay $166.95 fee to be eligible for jobs they posted online. What jobs??

Alliance advertises full time looking for extras. Not to give them jobs, only to collect fees. The jobs are few and far between. It took two months before I got my first job( Sept. 15/2010 )There were four other extras on set. All of themon theirfirst assignment. One lady signed up Oct. 1 / 2009 and this was her first assignment. Two weeks short of a year.

The best part of working for Alliance or should we say Ramona Rotar is that she doesn't pay you. She'll have her secretary tell you one lie after another. She's too gutless to talk face to face. She has her secretary lie for her. They give very lame excuses why she can't pay you. They don't have your social security number, don't have your address, lost your ss number. They must have lost my file because I provided all this info July 15/2010 when they took my money.

The office isn't alway open regular business hours. Most of the time a machine answers the phone with a message that they are busy and they will return your call. Doesn't happen. Of the four or five messages I've left, not one was ever returned. It doesn't surprise me. In the six months I've been with Alliance Artists, Ramona has had four different secretaries. Each one worst than the other.

On Nov. 17th I called looking for my check. She told me they didn't have my ss number and they needed it to pay me. So I gave it to her again. An entire month went by before I called back. Where's my check? They need my ss number. I told her I had already given her my ss number in Nov. She acknowledged talking to me in Nov. Her memory was that she was eating lunch when I called so she didn't write it down. She told me she was just a secretary working by the hour and she didn't need this. I said you've got to be kidding and hung-up. Two minutes later Ramona phones me barking that I owe her secretary an apology. Good Luck!! You owe me a check and an apology for your secretary's incompetents.

Ramona can't talk to me face to face because she is a liar. I bet this is the way she rips-off other people too. Romona Rotar is a LIAR and a RIP-OFF. Ramona is a LIAR. RAmona Rotar is a LIAR and a RIP-OFF.

Now today Jan. 6/2011 she claims she can't write me a check because she doesn't have my address. I'm standing in her office. Why would she need my address? Because Ramona Rotar is a LIAR AND A RIP-OFF. Did I mention Ramona Rotar is a lousey LIAR?? Some one who rips-off some one for work they preformed are the worst rip-offs there are. Did Imention Ramona Rotar is the worst kind rip-off there is? Ramona Rotar is the worst LIAR AND RIP-OFF there is.

Ramona is OK after all

AUTHOR: Greg - (Canada)

Thank you Ripoff Report. Your service made Ramona pay attention to me. Within a short period of time; she got me paid for my work and she also refunded the fee that I paid.

Apparently Ramona is very busy behind the scenes arranging work for her members. She depends greatly on her secretary to look after the day to day business. Unfortunately she isn't as passionate or hard working as Ramona and doesn't complete all tasks at hand.

Good luck with your new secretary, Ramona. Best to you in 2011.

I am also with Alliance Artist Managment Group.I have been working with Romona Rotar for about a year and a hafe now. Ramona has been nothing but open and honest to me,and every time I call the officeI alway get a quick response back from either herself or her secretery.She has never lied to me or ceated me.

I have been on the set of heartlandfour times and the set of 12 men of christmas, Romona has asked me to be on set four or five more times then that,I have been unable to make . Every time I have been on setI have been paid with in one month of the shoot date, and onceI even got paid Actra rate even knowI am not a member. Ramona didn't even charge me for missing a dateI agreed on whenI crashed my car on the way to set. I have never had a problem with any of her Secretary's they arealways been pleasent and pesonal to me. Also never lied to me!Any timeI have had a question , even if they didn'thave the awnser they have always got back to me or had Romona call me within the same day, I was with another agency before and evey time theycalled me they wanted more money! Romona in not like that she calls when she has actual jobs.Any agencey you sighn up with there will be a fee but working with Ramonathat fee has paid for it's self

In my opinion Alliance Artist Managment Group is a great agancy, And I wouldnever go anywhere else.RamonaRotar has been a great agent, honest and trusting!She does her best with the lackof show being filmed in Calgary
