Nine9 was once One Source Talent. Same company..... Same employees.... Same SCAM. :-(
I went to one of their cattle calls a couple years ago. Showed up, watched some movie with a ton of other people, a guy named steven came in and gave a speech to everyone, and then everyone had some bs interview... atleast when i went a couple years ago the guy who was the boss new what he was tlking about and we all took him seriosly and legit.... I went again a few weeks ago and the woman who was apparently the new boss in charge was a joke. Had no idea how the industry worked in LA or anythingg.
But i knew i had 10 biz days to refund if i paid the $150 over the phone the next day so i paid and came back for another appointment within my 10 day refund. This appointment she tried selling me on photoshoots that cost $900... HA! YEAH RIGHT!
I told the girl that i couldn't afford a photoshoot and she told me to make phonecalls while she stepped out the office.. Pushy much?
Little did she know that I could hear loud-and-clear the whole conversation she was having with another employee in the office next door... I guess it was a new employee because she was explaining pay and commission...... THEY GET 10% ON EVERYTHING THEY SELL YOU1!!!!! she was saying how she gets $90 commission if i were to pay up for the $895 photoshoot she was trying to sell me on. And she said "if worse comes to worse, I'll sell him the least expensive photoshoot $295 and get $30 commission for it. but I think he can afford the $900, he's a nurse and his dad is a professor at UCLA, so i know he can get the money''
Please stay away from these people!! their just taking advantage of peoples' dreams. so sad!
