JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I recently met with an advisor at this company. First, I was contacted by them stating they place only executive level people and my resume came to them from career builders (I have called Career Builders and notified them of this company tactics). In my meeting, this person explained that there are different levels. I was at level or meeting 1 and by the end of the meeting he would tell me if I qualified to get to level 2. Very skeptical at this point. This person asked me about my last employer which turned out he did not have any knowledge of them. Most of you reading this probably have IndyMac Bank.
IndyMac was taken over by the FDIC this summer that turned out to be the 2nd largest takeover in history. Something certainly a recruiter/career placement company should know. Then I was being asked some very personal information. His questions were, how old am I, am I married or single. I said I was single. Do I have a significant other. I said "yes". He asked for his name, occupation, his income, do we live together, own a home together and what are his feelings toward me looking for a job.
I refused to answer his questions, citing they were not necessary and I was uncomfortable answering these questions. He said he refuses to work with anyone until he knows everything about them and meets their other half. I again expressed to him that these were highly inappropriate and he asked if I wish to end the meeting. I said "yes" and left immediately. I guess I won't be getting to that level 2!!!! When I returned home, I did some research on the company and found out what you all are finding out.
That they provide little to nothing but take your money and from the sounds of it a pretty substantial amount from people probably struggling already. Again, I was one of the lucky ones because I left in the middle. I would recommend staying away from this company. I have also contacted a Sr. Executive at BCBS to advise that they are claiming to have placed a manager making 75K/year when he was currently making 60K.
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I went to Morgan Scott Palmer (MSP) because they teach about Job Interviews. I was lacking knowledge in that field and I thought MSP can teach me. These people are supposed to be professionals and supply me with the knowledge which can help me in my lifelong career. Me and my wife happily paid $6850 dollars for agreement that we would have appointment 2 times a week and if couldn't make it on weekdays then the appointment would be on weekend. What was promised was never delivered.
After two months with MSP I realized these people are no help to me whatsoever but I continued with the service because I had faith in their company and that I would learn something in the future months. In the meanwhile I had meeting, where I complained about being seen only 2 times a month while our agreement was 2 times a week. Needless to say nothing had changed.
Few weeks later I had appointment with MSP at 9am. Something important came up in day before at 8am where I realized I couldn't make it for my appointment. I asked day earlier if they could move my appointment few hours later to which they haven't even tried to reschedule, only simply said NO. Then I asked to schedule my next appointment to which I was told it will be in 2 weeks. That day I had talk with my wife only to find out that she have not had appointment in month.
Did we pay 6850 dollars to be treated like this? I have lost all faith in MSP and do not wish to do business with them. I asked for my money back to which they said NO. Morgan Scott Palmer just made $6850 dollars without lifting a finger. Few weeks later I contacted Better Business Bureau to help me with this matter, to which they have told me they never had a response from MSP. What a professional service.
Now MSP is claiming me and my wife had personal issues, divorce and whatever. What are you talking about??? "His former wife has started back with us as a continuing client." NOOO, my wife has contacted you about giving us our money back!
These people obviously don't even have the common sense, plus are lying. I can't believe I fell for their trap. My wife only wants our money back. There is nothing else to it. We are trying to get our money and Morgan Scott Palmer will do anything to not give us our money back. Now that I have more free time I will make sure everyone knows my situation. MSP, how many customers chose not to do business with you because you are a scam? See what happens when you scam people?
This is a client from several years ago and all of his client comment forms were extremely positive. It is correct that he and his wife paid us 6850.00. That was for both of them to retain us for three years of career consulting. That's 3425.00 each. For three years. Without going through his personal file, it was obvious that there were personal issues. Since then, he and his wife have divorced and just last week, his former wife has started back with us as a continuing client. If things were as bad as he has stated why would she come back in the process. We regret that this individual has decided on this course of action but we tried to be fair, as we do with all our clients.
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- My husband went to Morgan Scott & Palmer because they promised to help him find a job making $75,000 or more in a matter of months. They promised to help "tweek" his resume to make it "pop" out for possible employers. They promised to help him find placement, then did NOTHING! They required that he bring me in for an interview as well, they refused to deal with him without "meeting" me first. They made promises that really weren't "too good to be true" and failed to follow through. They said My husband would need to come in twice a week, then refused to schedule the appointments.
They called him about networking opportunities, set appointments to take him, then not show up or call and cancel. They charge $6850 for their services, then do provide. They even quit returning phone calls during the first few months. We paid them in 2006 and have not heard from them since 4 months later. Also a catch in their contract if you find work during the first 5 years after making the amount they promised, you are required to give them an additional payment, whether you find the job with or without them!! Please BEWARE of this company, they STEAL YOU MONEY, and if you are like us, you need it more than they do.
