TCT advertises dream job but, the reality is a form of slavery .....
I've been a fan of this site and have been surprised that TCTalent wasn't entered in the state of Arizona. I too was emailed about a job, and being a freelance journalst with no steady pay, the base pay plus commission they promise seemed inviting.
The interview process took an entire day. It started with about 90 people. We were told to stand up and say something about ourselves. We were also told about the company. Lori Cunningham, the director in Phoenix, cut it down to about 25 people. We were pretty much it for some arbritary reason.
Our training lasted for about an hour. We were given pamplets that seemed as if they were telling you what kind of people to look for, but the curveball is that they also (supposively) for actors and, as we all know, an actor doesn't have to be pretty. So they don't say it, but ANYONE can be approached to be part of TCT. I was a scout for three days before I said screw. They tell you that you have to attend at least 2 open calls a week, where you are still not paid.
There was one older man at the open call i went to that had been with the company for a couple of months and apparently you do get paid. It was hard to come to grips with this company as a scam, but it finally made sense after I read this site and also, after I saw it was a numbers game and that we were basically sent out to pool in as many people as possible.
It simply wasn't worth it and I don't beleive it is legit. They had us sign a document about not talking to the media while employed. We were also given business cards with a fake name, Phoebe Atkins. We were told she doesn't exist and only serves as a locator for other offices. (Phoebe = Phoenix). Screwy to say the least.
