I thought American Careers could help me land a job in the air line industry, the listing even said list  the choice of the airport you want to work at in the letter that you send to them, with an enclosed money order for 39 bucks.  All American Careers sent me bac was a email full of airports, but none of the airports that I listed in my letter that I told them I wanted to work at  was enclosed in my email package from American Careers. Ive been calling American Careers for the last past week, and GUESS what? NO ANSE RI just get the same recording daily,  what is puzzling to me is to how others say they hav spoken to a career counselor,  All I get when I call is a RECORDING.  and also I have letf numerous messages and still  NOTHING.  Ok people where are the Career counselors at that I read in sum of the reports on here?

Ther are no career counselors, thats the anser to why n oone ansers the phone, If only I had read the scam reports here first, I wud not be out of 39 bucks, oh well  LESSON LEARNED, everything that looks good on line isnt good. Now back to applying to airlines thru their websites.

American Careers LLc SHOULD be stopped its said how these people are ripping innocent people off trying to find employment.

Amerivan Careers Ripp off SCAM

AUTHOR: key72 - (United States of America)

Sorry  you got SCAMMED, join the club, I to was lead astray, I  sent my 39 bucks, and received an EMAIL full of airports to apply to, which I could have done the same thing on line, applying to as many airlines as I wanted, and  could have kept my 39 bucks. no one ansers at the phone number on  american careers  website page. these people shud be STOPPED, taking advantage of people trying to get a job at an airline

I cant beleave no one has stopped them from scamming people thus far. I think the FIRST RED FLAG for us shud have been on ther website page, when american careers  PLAINLY states DO NOT CLICK on the link on this page to apply for  flight attendant job. CALL ther number on the page. from then on is were ther SCAM begins as to were to send the 39 bucks. I learned my lesson, next time CALL the numbers of a company first, to make sure someone is actually REAL ther.

Fake counselor and bogus number

AUTHOR: key72 - (United States of America)

To Yvonne Foxworth, you call urself a career counselor, if this is so why have you not contacted me back?

I have been calling a hole week, and  left several messages. As always nothing but a recording.

And you have the nerve to have the same contact number listed on here as you do on the voice recording

Stop with this nonsence of you being a counselor, the last time I checked, counselors returmed students phone calls, not take their hard earned money, and try to insult their intellegence, by posting fake numbers.

American Careers Is Here To Help You.

AUTHOR: Yvonne Foxworth - (United States of America)

OK folks, please let me try to shed a little light on this thread.

First off, my name is Yvonne Foxworth. I'm a Career Counselor at American Careers (NYC offices).

For the doubters out there, I must say sorry for any confusion or misconceptions about us, but we certainly are NOT a scam. I've been here for 6 yrs. Indeed, I'm very happy with the results I have
personally obtained from the many Applicants I've assisted to gain employment at various airports/airlines across the USA. Success stories with many different types of Positions, at varying pay rates, anywhere from $14 to $22 / hour.

Regarding our Service, we simply assist Applicants obtain employment through the information that we email/mail them to get them started with the Application Process. We then follow up with phone support via our Career Counselors to assist them in every aspect of the Application Process (Application, Resume, Cover Letters, Thank You Letters, Interviewing Techniques, etc) through our Airline Career Development Guide & our Airline Hiring Update, which includes current listings of Airline Positions & descriptions which the Applicant may then apply for at various Airlines. We will attempt to obtain as many interviews for the Applicant as we possibly can. The $39 one-time fee we charge is refundable in the event we are unable to obtain employment for the Applicant.  Details are included in the paperwork the Applicant receives.  This is a vast amount of information
& assistance which could potentially require many hours to perform individually. This Service will soon be available to Applicants via a new website now under construction:

We have many success stories here with regard to Applicants who have taken the time & effort to read / follow the instructions listed in our Program, and have indeed obtained employment at various Airports across the USA. Obtaining employment takes time and effort. If Applicants are not willing to follow instructions or contact us for help, we can't possibly assist in those efforts. I will gladly personally assist anyone out there in their efforts to obtain employment. Please feel free to view our BBB review in MD:
