Could the OP put up the company name "Job Success" on the title of this thread as well.

I had a friend who attended one of these "interviews" and had entire same experience as you guys. It sounded very legit from the beginning but at the end the recruitment guy told him to bring his wife along next time for moral support. The interviewer also refused to mention how much the services will cost. From there on, he instantly knew it was a scam and he is never going back again.

Their website is:

PLEASE BE AWARE! I really hope this company burns down to the ground after hearing what they do.

If you paid them money already, then yes. Otherwise, you are in the clear as long as you break all contact and never give them a cent!

I'm glad I looked this up! Job Success was at the National Job Fair that happened at the beginning of this month at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. They must have gotten hundreds of resumes there including mine because there was a huge line up to meet with these people and 'go over' your resume. When I got to the front of the line, the rep that I talked to said that my resume looked very promising and if I was very serious about getting a job to call their office and book an appointment. I asked exactly how their company worked, what jobs they had available or what companies they dealt with and all I got back in response was a smile and that if I was serious, I should come in. Because I thought the whole meeting was very strange, I never followed up and didn't think much of it. Today, Susan gave me a call and said they had a cancellation and asked if I was available to meet. I said I'd have to think about it and give them a call. I gave them a call back 10 min after and Susan didn't recall me or my resume and asked if I had spoken to her yesterday. By this point I was really weirded out and looked them up which brought me here. Thank goodness!

I attend a Job Fair at Mel Lastman Square today on Yonge Street in Toronto.

Job Success was there. I was given an appt on the spot and was told that I was just one of three that were given appointments today. I guess I look like I have money. Nice.

Thanks for RFD and the www for alerting me to this. Sad to prey on people when they are already without incomes/jobs. What's next, stealing from the homeless person's jar? Unreal.

They are pulling the same scam. Roberston sends the initial email to candidate.

Susan from JOB SUCCESS calls to setup the appointments.

These people are snakes!

I have just got a call from Job Success' Susan who wanted an appointment with me tomorrow to discuss no specific job. I found it sketchy and couldn't get time off work last minute to meet with them either. Looked them up after hanging up and found a bunch of complaints online.

I haven't attended any job fairs, wonder where they got my contact number.

Same scam, different booth.

I was contacted by Haldane a couple of times over the years. The first time, I went in for an 'interview' but got out of there fast.

The 2nd time, I just turned them down outright.

Just 2 weeks ago, I was contacted by this group and once I googled the site and saw they were the same ol', same ol' - I called them back and cancelled.

It is difficult to do anything about them as they are careful about offering coaching services - they do not ever say they are a recruiting company, so are not breaking any laws 0 just moral ones.

Buyer beware!

Actually - don't buy! Do not pay anyone to get a job for you! Ever!

How is it this is allowed to continue? Why hasn't there been a case made against all these *******s that take advantage of people.... There all over the place, and nothing is being done about it.

Take a look at their privacy policy, , it is a bit different than most companies. Purchase history is collected. Type of operation suits staying away from.
