I’m a true professional in the business and these people here are not. They don’t care about you! They only care about how much money you can make them and will pay you pennies on the dollar. They require you to work a set schedule of minimum of 40+ hours per week and you’re paid only commissions. No base salary. All that hard work, time and money spent wasted. It was the most unprofessionalrofessional place and they’re disgusting people that are scamming people out of their money.
Either you kiss the manager's wide butt or get attitude and complaints no matter how high your sells. They would also try to skimp on bonuses we earned so it's important to keep track of your own sells.
Small office setting, co-workers were great
It was so much fun getting paid to encourage young girls in their poise and confidence. It was the most rewarding first job I could have possibly imagined.
Seeing personal growth in young women
not a lot of available hours
Your day starts with callbacks of potential clients that are being reveiwed for recruitment of the academy. Your job is to explain to them where they were rated by the admissions staff and whether or not we are interested in them attending. Then we confirm all of our appointments for the day and check to see what payments are due for current clients. As admissions director you are in charge of collections for past due tuition as well as running payments and recruiting new clients. After running payments and calling on collections you start seeing appointments. Your job now is to determine a persons level of raw talent and or professional talent/experience during their interview/audition. In this process you explain about the school while testing them on a short commercial for acting, a song for singing and take measurements, weight, and height if interested in modeling. After collecting pictures that completes the interview process. You complete an average of 6 interviews per day and will be able to recruit 1 of those 6 on average. You also have to deal with customer service issues with current clients encouraging them and giving advise for the industry. The admissions are self starters and bascially have their own business within the walls of the school. I have learned a lot about the entertainment industry in being around actors all day long and testing people, working with them to learn basic fundamentals of acting. I have learned that people somtimes need encouragement and inspiration to continue pursuing a career. Acting is very hard and a lot of people want to quit the - more...
fun job, fun industry
limited income potential, unprofessional ownership.
Loved working for this company, however most locations have gone under due to lack of new client traffic. My only con for this company is that they are willing to sell classes to people who are barely making ends meet promising the chance for their child to meet an actual agent and have the chance to be signed.
This job was a joke. The lady didnt tell me that it was 100% sales commission until the last minute. And you have to pay for all your own travel. Its just tricking kids into thinking that they are going to gain representation from this "school" by having them sign up for bogus acting/modeling classes.
This job was incredible. Traveling all over the US, and North America to find the most talented people and hone their skills to help them be the best person they can be, and equip them with tools to succeed in the entertainment and fashion industry.
Very busy phone lines. I was left to manage the office alone most mornings. I was allowed to restructure the front office and how it ran which made my job much easier. It was like family was very sad to see them close.
didnt like the down time
large rushes then long down times
