It's too bad that Ed Wozniak and his crew continue to con and steal from people. Kirk Leipzig is Ed's puppet master and continues to do the same thing that he did at J L Kirk and Associates.

I'm glad that Amanda was "assisted" by Wozniak. Let's see what happens in the next few months and what executive level job she lands. Her initial entry is spot on except for the part stating that Transition/Transforming America had moved.

My dealings with slick Eddie have been horrible at best. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau after TA refused to return my money. After dealing with these crooks for 2 months, I realized that they don't have the "ins" with the hiring managers. They don't have an exclusive job posting site. Their career counseling is a joke and that they were J L Kirk and Associates reincarnated. The BBB offered us the opportunity to go to arbitration to resolve the issue but Eddie declined to go through that process. He knew that he would lose. Do a search of Transition/Transforming America on the BBB site and see what they have to say. It will be updated the week of 4/7.

Slick Eddie wants to defer the real issues by blaming me, the person who paid them $3,450 (yes Amanda, they change the price for how much they believe they can con from someone) instead of conducting business as an honest business person would do. If you have a disgruntled client, you do everthing in your power, including arbitration, to satisfy that client.

Don't let Eddie deny that they are not an off-shoot of J L Kirk and Associates. I have many connections between the two companies. The 2 easiest to explain are, #1 I have 3 emails that were mistakenly forwarded to me by TA's VP Rick Hirsch on 2/11/08. They were sent to him by Kirk Leipzig on 2/5/08. #2. The resume template they use was authored by a guy named Tom Beal. Tom Beal is an ex-employee of J L Kirk. I could list more but it will come out in later in a different media venue.

Stay as far away from these snake oil salesmen. Look up J L Kirk and Associates on ripoff report, google them and see the pattern. I won't be surprised by the response that slick Eddie's puts here on the ripoff report. Obviously he is nervous about his con being exposed if he is even looking at this report. Disregard anything that this con man states.

DO NOT pay them money or waste your time with Transition/Transforming America. Tell everyone you know about these crooks. They need to be put out of business.

Transforming America is now Nashville Career Partners

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

Transition/Transforming America (JL Kirk and Associates) has changed their name to Nashville Career Partners. They are still located in the same office in Brentwood. After Channel 5 busted them for their sleazy business practices (you can view the report on the Newschannel 5's web site) and the BBB revoked their charter, they changed their name. Be aware of this company.
NEVER pay money up front for any "executive search" firm. Quality search firms get paid by the company that hired you. Don't fall for empty promises. I did and I'm out $3,500.
