Morgan Scott Palmer Complaint - Scam! I Was One Of The Lucky Ones
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.
