Not resolved

I used to work at One Source Talent. It made me feel horrible that all these people were being lied to and taken advantage of.

No matter what the situation is they will accept any $ even if you promised it to them 8 months from now.. The company itself was very unprofessional and even made their employees sign a waiver stating that they could no divulge any information known about the company once employed. HONESTLY, having seen it from the inside I urge anyone that has an appt to CANCEL! Their only money-hungry.!

The office director is a total ***, she has no respect for anyone in general even her employees. I am just as mad as all of you are because working there not only ruined my integrity i had to sign away my morals as well. Scamming people into making them believe this is what they have to do to get exposure? BS!

I'm sorry to all those people I had to lie too while working there!

So if you have an upcoming appt cancel it tell them to stop calling and harassing you and you'll save yourself a huge headache in the future! Karma is a *** and when she comes back for these people especially {{Redacted}} and her little *** *** sister {{Redacted}}, dont worry they'll get all thats coming to them Gd luck all you people who are trying to make it in the industry.

Monetary Loss: $495.

Yes! I worked there too. They only pull ads off craigslist


scam they pay you, you dont pay them, be carefull dont go to one source talent scam, all they want is your money they will take anyone in that will pay the fee


:( This is a big big BIG scam! I am telling you do not go to any interviews!

I did some research on this telephone number that has been calling me a lot and everyone online says its the talent angency from newyork! They also state NOT TO TRUST THE ONE_SOURCE_TALENT angency! They are a big fat lie! some people paid them $495 and are still paying them every month but I believe there is a way to get out of that I'm not sure!

The point is they are money-hungry scumbags who rip people off asap! Keep your money in your pocket and your butt at home! Do not go to the interviews dont waste your time. Tell them you are not interested.

If they call back tell them to stop calling or you will file a complaint to the police okay! Whatever you do dont sign any contracts okay just dont do it!

I'm currently with One Source Talent, and God, the place is a dump! They're very pushy and unproffessional, not business-friendly at all.

I'm going to talk to my mom about getting me out of there, fast! Thank you so much for your help, I won't be wasting my time or money!

***..I am on the bus on my way to evaluation.

I'm glad I read this now. I'm gonna save my time.


Thank you so much for posting. My son applied on line to this place.

They called and he was thrilled. I modeled for years in N.Y and LA but I am older now and I forgot all the BS.

They called and said we had a private interview this Th in Beverly Hills I am so glad I am not wasting our time. I am keeping my sons precious dreams alive and pressing forward and following Tyra Banks advice thanks!!!


i have an appointment tomorrow is this all true?


wow...I'm glad I did some research...I had many calls by these representatives and I started to get excited but I knew something didnt feel righ. Now I know why.


I got a job there as a receptionist my question is am i put on a contract to work with them? they made me sign a paper stating that I could not work with their competition but I didnt know if this ment i was on a contract. Yesturday was my first day and i did not like it at all can you pls answer me this thank you =)


OMG.. Thank god I did my homework on these people before I signed anything.

I just got back from a meeting with them in NYC. I thought that was a little sketchy how they wanted me to pay $495 up front and then $40 a month after that. I could tell something was wrong just by the look on one of the girls that works there. She had that guilty face lol..

I am never going back there again.

Good thing I didn't sign that contract!! =)


Thank you so much for this post. I got a call today for my daughter, for an appointment in Beverly Hills on Wed. I will be cancelling it tomorrow!


Thank you so much, I told my mom to block her card. Bless you, let god take you above.

I will never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, use One source talent again! You are right they are BS!


Yes, thank you for the truth from the former employee of One Source Talent, GOD will bless you for that. I recieved an email out of the blue re: my son, 5yrs old saying that they recieved my application online.

It baffled me because I never filled out an app w/OST at all but I remembered 2yrs ago I did fill out some stuff for him online and sent his professional headshots in, so I figured they just got it from that. Anyway, I call, setup an appt and we go to the first appt. where your put in this room with a lot of peaple and they come out and explain how the agency works. Im like the other person that commented, never did I hear them say anything about you MUST bring in $495 if you are asked to come back.

Ok, they call our name, they ask us to come back, also never in that office with the so called talent specialist did she say bring in $495 on the next appt, which she set me up for the 3rd appt for the very next day. Ok, I go to the 3rd appt today and they call us in and THEN they ask for $495, I told her I was not AWARE befor hand to bring in any money. YES IT IS A HUUUUUUUUUUGE SCAMMMMMMMMMMMM people!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And yes they are RUDE as ***.

My first appt the reception area was RUDE. Any way like Tyra Banks always says, if an agency is interested in you they will pay you and they will handle EVERYTHING, you should NOT pay for anything. Good Luck everyone!

We cant give up, just keep pushing and if God blesses us to do this, then it shall be done, the RIGHT way. One Source Talent should be ashamed of themselves!!!!
