You all may have heard or read on this site about any number of scams evolving Executives search firms. There is another one on the block called ExecutivesOnly.com and The Barrett Group that promises the increases of pay, tapping that elusive unpublished market of jobs, shortening your search time, and plugging you into their network of contacts.

You may not see much of this company reported with the Better Business Bureau because the owner of ExecutivesOnly.com and The Barrett Group sits on the board of the Rhode Island BBB (as Mr. and not Dr., can't seem to find out where he acquired that title). The prices are made up as they go depending how much of a sucker the next guy is. And if you finance the total over say 3 months, be assured you will not be on any interviews before that 2nd payment has been put in their account. They even keep the funds when the client cancels a deal in the rescission period. Trust me if you are in the $125,000 plus income bracket with a great degree or two, you do not need someone to find a position for you.

What is truly repugnant about these firms is that they prey on those people that are having difficult times and are on their last dollar; trust me these guys will take it anyway, what class. Most exec's are not on their last dollar it is the other company (TBG) that deals in the less that $75,000/yr, people that live paycheck to paycheck that are sold an incredible promise that will only cost them $3-4000, often their last bit of money. On the web site, you might want to question just how many of the postings are current, you'll find the explanation is it just got filled darn!

I know all of this to be true as I am an X employee. I had to leave immediately upon finding these tactics to be true. And there is more that can be read on other sites like this one in the coming weeks.

Eventually they will be shut down for fraud

AUTHOR: Doug - (U.S.A.)

You sir, are walking a line, a very fine line.  I believe you will make a misstep and be shut down for fraud.

I'm one of your victims.  Diane (the high pressure closer), Larry Dubonio (simple), and Paula (the cube frau), gave me about $1,000 worth of service.  For this I paid $12,000.

IMO your organization is a complete scam.  Nothing more than sending out letters from mailing lists gleaned from Hoovers.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

A Private Employee complaint made too public, too long ago

AUTHOR: Waffles Pi Natusch - (U.S.A.)

Despite years since this complaint was first made public (November 2004), it remains the one blemish you'll notice no other complaints prior or since on my company's reputation of providing highly successful career management services for seasoned professionals seeking a career change. Ripoff Report readers should know that this posting stemmed from an employee-employer disagreement. The accusations contained within are false, and the matter was resolved shortly after.

I would also like to add that Steven Zinno, the author's supervisor at the time and founder of ExecutivesOnly.com, was in fact a respected member of the business community. His business partner at the time did sit on the local board of the Rhode Island Better Business Bureau. However, as with any BBB board member, they were both kept separate from the day-to-day workings of the BBB, especially if it involved our company. Steven, unfortunately, passed away in 2006.
