Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I was looking for a job one day and stumbled upon this headline on Indeed.com

 --- AIRLINE NOW HIRING --- Starting Pay UP TO $22.00 Per Hour --- (YOUR CITY HERE)

THIS HEADLINE IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET it is posted on MANY JOB BOARDS like WILDFIRE

To all Job Seekers out there AVOID THIS COMPANY LIKE THE PLAUGE !!

You will burn 39 dollars for no job !!

So please do not I repeat do not fall for the phone message claiming you will get an application to file for a job !!

The only thing you will get is a long ebook telling you how to go to websites to apply and how to make a resume and cover letter. All this information can be found free with google searches.

I should have read these reports before I sent them my money. =(

They Even have an acknowledgement on their website stating that these claims onRipoff Report and (((redacted))) are false allegations to make themselves seem like a legit website and company. Even if they are with the BBB that doesnt mean they wont scam you.

 They have clever means of scamming you in order to seem legit. They will send you an email claiming that they will help you with the application process and guide you on your way to employment. Trust me they wont help you !! After you send your money you will get an ebook guide on how to apply and thats it !! It has a shady application to print out at the end that serves no purpose.

YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN THANK YOU FOR your FREE $39

 This scam is going on all over the country please report this company the higher the reports the sooner this company gets the punishment it deserves. Tricking loyal hard working americans with false promises. I will not use my name please forgive my grammar for any mistakes. Peace and Love.

American Careers Helps !!!

AUTHOR: Collier21 - ()

I never once thought that American Careers was affiliated with any airline, when you listen to the hotline message you understand that.  My career counselor helped me with the employment process, he (Joe) helped me to know what airlines to apply to and which ones I would be spinning my wheels with being a first time applicant with no previous work history in the airlines. 

$125.00 for a postal book has no relevance with what American Careers does, they provide electronic information as well as actual career counselors to the individiuals that want to get the help and find a job.  I don't get where this information is coming from.  I have nothing but good things to say about this company. 

I did my research and came here and read all of the postings, I also called their 718-690-7056 number and spoke with a very nice gentleman.  He helped me to further understand what they did and what their processes were.  It was a chance that I was willing to take.  I would say that it was an excellenet one and that is why I am back here telling about my expierence with American Careers.

American Careers does advertise in order to help clients to find positions with the airlines.  Yes, you will see our ad's online.  We would like to help our clients to obtian employment.  To all Job Seekers out there We would love to help you to reach your career goals!!

As we state to all of our customers the $39 dollar fee is refundale if you are unable to obtain employment, this is also very clearly stated on our website.  On our hotline messages we provide each of our potiential customers with our website, so that they may see what we can can do for them !!

It is up to each individual if they want to use American Careers as an assistant in finding a career with the airlines  We put no pressure on any potiential client!!  We would love the opportunity to help anyone with their career search and needs.

American Careers provides much more to our clients that just an ebook.  We take great pride in speaking with our customers and assisting them.  I again urge you, if you are a client of American Careers to please call me so that I may assist you in obtaining employment.  We do send information to all of our clients to get them started, we also provide them with a phone number to reach us so that we can begin helping them with the process.

WE NEVER WANT FOR OUR CLIENTS TO FEEL AS IF THEY ARE ON THEIR OWN.  THIS IS THE REASON THAT WE PROVIDE THE WEBSITE AS WELL AS A PHONE NUMBER TO REACH US.  If the phone lines are busy when you call, please leave a message for me and I will return your call ASAP.

Again, American Careers is here to help you, we would love the opportunity to assist anyone that is truly looking for employment.   

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.  Please take a moment to view our website: www.americancareers.us

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.

 

Sincerely,

 


Yvonne Foxworth

A shame they are still around

AUTHOR: Giselle - ()

It is very unfortunate this "company" is still around.  People think they are affliated with various airlines and they are NOT.  They cannot get you a job with any airline, all they do is provide you electronically with information that, like the OP said, is already available all over the internet. This type of shady operation is no different than those companies that post similar ads like Now hiring Postal Workers, make $35 an hour!!!! And then they charge $125.00 for a book that is available for free elsewhere and they don't tell people they have no affliation with the USPS. Same slimey methods!  A person who takes money from the unemployed who are desperate to keep a roof over their heads and feed their families and for whom every dollar is precious, is absolutely disgusting!!!!
