This place sucks
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.

Unprofessional Management
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.
Pros
Small office setting, co-workers were great
Cons
Management sucks

I liked this job because there was no matter what compensation because people always showed up so that they can audition to attend the school and you got to meet some famous people.

Inexpereienced leadership
Some good people working there. No direction for teachers. Had to develop own curriculum. Ownership was mixed. School is now closed. Poor leadership at the end.

Great Company
More than anything the location was the main reason I worked here. The hours were okay. A Lot of overtime was required. I would not refer this company to anyone who doesn't like working on weekends

Great place. I Miss my Executive Director. She was the absolute best and totally understanding. She didn't mind training me on things I had little working knowledge of.

Definately a challenge
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...
Pros
fun job, fun industry
Cons
limited income potential, unprofessional ownership.

Great place to work!
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.

100% sales commission
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.

The company had so many highlights it's hard to point out just one great moment. The acting and talent company introduced talented men woman and children into the entertainment world.
