Complaint Review: American Radio Network-Tony Lewis
American Radio Network-Tony Lewis KCLAFM Job Scam Los Angeles California
This company is a complete and utter rip off! I went to my orientation on Sunday, May 12 where I had to pay a administrative fee of $40. The orientation was 3 hours long!! The place looked run down with very dim lighting. The equipment was obiviously old, like from the 70's or 80's. They never give you a tour of the the studio and the 'TV studio' were they supposedly shoot TV slots.
They expect you to pay $24 a week while you're in Phase 1 which is training. While in Phase 1 you're paid by the amount of commercials you air which are $5 per sponsor, which doesn't even cover costs for the 'weekly' fee. So 2-3 commercials are only $15 dollars which they will happily take out of your '$24 fee'. So you still have to pay $9.
When you've mastered the equipment after 1-8 weeks of paying the weekly fee, then you have notify Tony Lewis that you're ready to broadcast. Then if you want a 'demo tape' of your show, they charge $3 per taping.
The worst part is they are doing this scam to new artists and college students. The $24 a week was a 'discount' since I was a student. Yeah, right.
If it's not a job don't post like it's a job and scam people out of their hard time and money.
