Complaint Review: American Careers
American Careers Unnecessary Fee Baltimore Maryland
*UPDATE Employee: American Careers is Here To Help Consumers Find Employment
I saw their ad for Airport jobs, $14-22/hour. I called the number, listened to a very detailed and lengthy recording. The recording stated the process requires a $39 fee for the application packet. It stated it was refundable, but didn't say when it would be refundable. It also stated that the application process HAD to be done through them, not direct with the airports.
I researched this web site and a few others to get feedback about American Careers legitity and found complaints that they are a scam for requesting this process fee. Not quite settled on my conclusion, I furthered my research by going directly to the Airport (of interest) web site. I found in the Airports direct site, a list of job/career opportunities currently open; and I would be able to apply directly to them on their site, if they had an open position I was interested in, but they currently don't. The majority of the positions also provided their pay rate, which didn't come even close to the starting rate of $14 as American Careers state. Regardless, one is able to apply to these Airports directly versus going through American Careers with a fee.
Also, in the job opportunities on the Airports web site, it lists all the Airline Companies that fly in-out of their Airport with their web sites listed for each. You can copy and paste those sites in a seperate tab and search careers with their Airline in the Airports for your area.
Bottom line being, you DO NOT have to go through American Careers and pay a $39 fee to obtain employment at an Airport. Also, though American Careers has a right to charge a fee for their process; it is unneccesary to go through their entity. However, their stated pay rates are incorrect!
