Stay away from Jeff Jones and Monica Salinas, John Robert Powers; they are the biggest thieves in the face of the earth. They rip off parents of thousands of dollars. They take hundreds of dollars in cash before classes. Do you think they report that to Uncle Sam. Everybody gets screwed by these two, even Uncle Sam.
They fire employees who try to inform parents about these jerks' crooked business practices. They fire employees who really want to do good for the children taking classes. They fire employees, without pay, who really are decent human beings.
Jeff Jones and Monica purposely don't keep track of who has paid what. They then tell clients they owe more money than actually true. When parents try to fight them on the issue, Monica tells them they have to pay the balance or remove their children from class immediately. Some parents keep track of their own payments, for obvious reasons. Then Monica plays her, "Oh, I forgot my computer at home," card. Monica never admits she's wrong. She simply wants to rip off as many parents/children as possible.
On the rare occassion that they actually have a real agent auditioning students, Jeff and Monica do not tell parents that the agent is interested in their children if this interest happens before auditions for iPOP! This happened to one of my sons and three other students. These same students "auditioned" for iPOP! Of course, they made the audition. Parents were then ripped off of $5000 to $10,000 dollars more. Food and water totally suck! Nothing they promised for the kids, food, snacks, t-shirt,..actually happened.
Another thing, Jeff Jones and Monica charge parents based on how much money they have. Yes, they investigate your financial assets, but they pretend everyone is getting a discount for one reason or another. Some parents slither in for free and smoke pot in the hotel rooms. I guess ipop!, John Robert Powers, Rad Kids, Jeff Jones, and Monica Salinas are truly going green! Your child is really getting the best education possible, but he or she will not get into the entertaining business because once agents or managers learn you had anything to do with JRP and all their trash, they turn your child away. Agents/managers don't want to tarnish their own reputation. I don't blame them. Head shots and Zed cars from JRP and their network of ripp off "photographers" totally suck.
I can't understand why cities still allow these thieves to do business in our cities. I can't believe the IRS is allowing this to continue. Check out their Saturday classes. Cash flows! Monica and Jeff want to move out of state to open another JRP Piggy Bank! Let's get rid of these fat swines!
