2012-08-25 [former client alleges invalid addresses in database]
I fought this company for a year.They will leave you broke at a time in your life when you NEED a job.Don't fall for their presentation of their services.In the end they will blame you for not landing a job.Their data base is out dated or fake (I don't know Which)I know we got lots of returned mail saying no one by that name at this address.I have kept them in case they want to sue.They will make all kinds of threats.I see they got so many complaints they are no longer a member of BBB." --guest

I got scammed by these guys as well. They too $2,400 from me. I was excited and was ready to follow the program when Chandler Hill Partners put in contact with a guy in Texas Mr. Alex Leungas. He was no help at all. Alex never kept in contact with me seemed interested in working out my campaign. I would not here from him for weeks at a time. I was lead to believe I would be working one on one with a campaign manager here in Tucson and now I was to call Alex in Texas. After many emails to Chandler Hill I requested my money back. I spoke to Mrs. Geri Daily (the national Client Manager)then to Victoria Sonner(. I was told that I would receive a refund for breach of contract. After months and months of fighting with Chandler Hill I get a letter in the mail stating the went bankrupt and basically I will never get my money back. I have kept all emails from chandler hill. This is the last email I got from Chandler Hill Partners Notice the Date. IN February of 2012 I received the infamous bankrupt letter. Here is an Example:

Hi,

Once your paperwork was received, your file was transferred to the accounting department for final resolution.  For further update, please contact Victoria Sonner at: vsonner@chandlerhill.com


Kind Regards,

Geri Daily, CPRW
National Client Services Manager

I tried contacting Mrs. Sonner for 2 weeks and she would not get back to me so I wrote Mrs. Geri Daily back. Here's that Email

Mrs.Daily,

So I see your company refuses to HONOR our Settlement Agreement. Where is my refund? I see the BBB has drop your company and Tucson has no record of your tax license in order to operate in our city.  It is now October 25, 2011. I see you have no intention of Honoring our agreement. I was to be paid on the 6th of September. Your lies and misleading information is appalling and as a company deceiving people out of their hard earned money is disgraceful at best. Thanks for your great deception and lies. I understand why the BBB has drop your company. You guys are scam artist. You guys never had the intention of helping me, EVER you just wanted to steal my money. Thanks for taking out of the mouths of my family. Congrats you scammed a honest person and his family out of his money.

My husband was contacted by Marla Morales(related to David?) and sucked into her promise to help him find a different position. He is employed but looking. He has only been working with them since mid June 2011. He requested a meeting in mid October and was first told his counselor was out of the office until Oct. 31. Then a week later, told "due to economic reasons the Atlanta location has closed."
No one has contacted him since. DUE TO ECONOMIC REASONS..yes,not being able to find enough suckers to pay the rent...and this is supposed to be an agency that helps others find positions. I do not care how much time this takes.  We will do everything in our power to bring this worthless agency and all of its associates down. Anyone want to join us?  $3400 and less than 4 months of contact and interaction with this group and then they close the office and run away without any direct contact. Does this sound like an agency YOU want to trust. --guest
2011-11-06 [client complaint]
I was scammed by Chandler Hill Partners in the Dallas area a few years back. As I never got my money back I will say that what they offered was nothing! I spent a month filling out information about me on their website to better help them, so I was told. However, all this time I spent filling out information on their site was actually a service they provided for me. Imagine that, I gave them THOUSANDS of dollars to fill out forms online about myself. WHAT A SCAM!

Here are the people involved in this that I dealt with,

Nick D'Uva (whos real name is Jack Nicholas D'Uva of McKinney, TX) he was the front man on deceiving me into their services.
Shirley Barbaro (Last I found she lived in Plano, TX)- didn't do much but had me sign papers when I came in. In fact, when I found out something was wrong (when I figured out I was being scammed) I called a meeting and she tried to CON me into signing a bunch of paperwork before they would have the meeting with me. Typical "save your behind when the heat is on" scam artist move.
Vena Martin - she sent me a deceptive e-mail stating they found me a job when I raised concerns about their organization. This was either a breach of contract by her, or an out right LIE. I assume it is a lie since they IN NO WAY SHARE YOUR RESUME WITH COMPANIES! Read their contract, they state it - so don't let one of their scam staff lead you to believe otherwise.
Geri Daily - She refused to take any of my concerns into consideration and her condescending attitude towards me is what has escalated this publicly.
Sarah Hightower Hill - We all know she is the ringleader in this scam. she is building a reputation of deception and unethical behavior.

I urge EVERYONE to contact the Arizona Attorney Generals Office about this company or whatever they are calling themselves now. This will help the Attorney Generals Office with information of their actions.

I believe all the people listed above are well aware of the unethical acts they took part in while with Chandler Hill Partners.
As a person of influence now, I will never consider anyone that worked for Chandler Hill Partners for a position based on their involvement in such an unethical organization. These people have done nothing but scam me out of thousands of dollars (which I really needed to provide for my family) when I really needed some help finding a position.
They took advantage of me when I was desperate - spearheaded by Jack Nicholas D'Uva. --guest
2011-08-17 [upset former client]
Yes, my headline [sorry, edited] is exactly what they are.  I will say that publicly and no one can touch me because it is the absolute truth..... If you are someone that has been contacted by Chandler Hill or whatever they call themselves now, do not fall into their web of lies and give them any money.  If you have to pay for a job, there is something wrong.  I had my doubts when I heard they wanted money, but their sales pitch was so positive and they tell you exactly what they think you want to hear.  I let my husband make the decision and he went with them, of course they contacted him, not the other way around.  Same thing happened as with everyone else and the same names referenced here are the same lame ass people my husband has been dealing with - GERI DAILY, SARAH HIGHTOWER.  These women are a joke.  No moral compass, nothing but pure greed and dishonesty.  And they try to make you feel that you didn't follow the contract.  What a farce.  Yeah, I'll say it, both women are nothing but selfish, greedy, diva [..snip..].  Oh and by the way, lets get an answer from them if they have the guts - which I doubt - What would you do if you were in our positions of being ripped off while being unemployed and the company that did it is laughing all the way to the bank with your hard earned money that you will never see again.  How would you feel if you had a family (and hopefully you haven't reproduced any little mini me's there that turn out like you) and you couldn't feed them because you were RIPPED OFF!!!!!  Answer that one you POS liars.....

I hope this company gets shut down completely, including the new "names" they're using.  All those account managers and everyone else that screwed everyone over need to be out of a job and get ripped off by another company just like them.  YOU CAN SEE WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.  NOT GOOD LET ME TELL YOU. --guest
2011-04-08 Chandler Hill is now A.R.E.
For all of you who may get "sucked in" again....Chandler Hill Partners has changed their name to A.R.E. and John Vargo is now using the name Jon Allen.  I think we all know the need for the change. The name has been changed to protect the guilty! --guest
2010-11-14 Chandler-Hill is in Phoenix too
I just met with Chandler -Hill of Phoenix.  They are not just in Tucson anymore.  I have had the same experiance as those below.  I did get past the gate keeper without paying to have a meeting with a "career coach" David Morales. He is also a supposed VP of the company.  I will not be keeping my appointment with him based on the postings below. Thanks everyone.

[ Ed. note - we do not have any ability to verify veracity of postings.  Please be considerate and professional in all dealings, including calling ahead to cancel any meetings] --guest
2010-11-12 thank you no
i want to thank all the people who posted their experiences with CHP. you saved me from wasting 2 hours of travel time, disappointment about the cost of potential fees, and another deflating job search experience.

my experience was here on the east coast.

they called me in for a meeting and yesterday we set-up an appointment time.

as a result of the information on this blog i called them back today asking about the fee structure and received evasive answers. they stated that it all depends on the service that is needed (resume writing help to full on company targeting). i told them that certainly i needed more than help with my resume but wanted to save them and me heartache by knowing roughly how much the fees are. i told them that i can't afford to pay someone thousands of dollars and just needed an idea if the cost was $100 or $1000. i asked for a price range. they told me i would have to come in because it all depends on the consultant. they also stated that it depended how far along in the job process i was and that there might be no fee - but they weren't offering or guaranteeing it.

finally i verbally pinned someone down when i asked "so you don't have any companies who pay you when you find an employee that they hire". the answer was no. maybe other branches have arrangements with companies who pay them for finding an employer, but the branch  i worked with, in a major east coast market, did not.

again, to all the people who lost money, i am sorry you went through that experience but thank you for at least giving the rest of us that "side of the story" so we have more information to ask informed questions. --guest
2010-11-10 [account of experiences]
I experienced some of the same things as commented by #2010-06-21.
I am not a competitor of Chandler Hill but another of one their ripped-off clients.  I was lied to and scammed by the initial interviewer.  I was told my profile indicated almost ~96% success in finding a job making ~100K and that a job would come in a few weeks. I did not receive even one interview!  I jumped through all their hoops and paid >$5000.00 for what?  I complained about them which provided no results.  I spoke with the company president, Sarah Hightower.  I found her to be very defensive, especially when I used the word scam.  I did not appreciate the threatening letter I was sent after they failed to help me.  Chandler Hill Partners is a scam! I simply want to warn others so they don't get taken for thousands of dollars as well.  I personally know of another person that was ripped off in the same manner as I was.  It's not a fluke, it's a scam. Be warned!" --guest
2010-09-04 Legalized SCAM!
Tucson, AZ:
Marla called me to set up an interview because "we have a position that meets your qualifications".  I asked what type of job it was and she wouldn't say.  I asked it was from another field.  She said "Don't you want to stay in the same field that you are in now?"  Yes.  She set up an interview.  [The interviewer] asked me what I knew about Chandler Hill.  I had researched them on the internet before the interview and said that I thought they possibly could be a company that works as a recruiter for other companies (I didn't think so) and also they worked directly for the client (me) for a fee.  He didn't confirm the former, only the latter.  He gave me the run around asking what I had done, what was I interested in, who I knew, we went through my resume, etc.  At one point I mentioned how gullible some people are.  He informed me that I wasn't a good candidate for Chandler Hill (I have a 4 year degree and over 10 years of experience in my industry).  If you don't know what these guys are all about before going you may get sucked in.  I could see it coming but went anyway because it was something to do!  [He] was polite but I also got the sense that he was not very educated, hadn't ever worked a real job, and didn't really have a good grasp on my career field or know specifically where to look to find a job.  You can find him on LinkedIn.  Chandler Hill is not for me.  There are a lot of comments stating that Chandler hill did great things for them.  I will admit this is a guess but could these comments be 1.  Chandler Hill employees posting comments or 2.  People that would have found a good job anyway even without Chandler Hill.  I feel that the initial contact Marla made with me stating that they had or knew of a position what a blatant lie. --guest
2010-08-04
I had great success working with Chandler Hill Partners back in 2007. I know I had to work equally as hard as my campaign manager did on my behalf to move my career forward. The end result is that I have a great career and I know I have the knowledge and tools to keep my career moving onward and upward. Very few things in life will get handed to you, most of the time you have to work very hard to get what you want.

Don't Know What You Want to Do? Chandler Hill Partners can Help

You're sunk until you figure out what you want to do. Seriously! If you don't know, it's like going to the library for "something to read" or to the mall for "something to buy." Chances are you won't get what you really want or need.

The key to a successful job search and a successful career is knowing what you want to do. If you don't know, it will be hard to find. --guest

My wife applied for a job on careerbuiders.com. Soon afterwards we were contacted by Chandler Hill Partners INC for what she thought was a job interview she was told an employee of Chandler Hill that job had been filled but he believed that with her experience she would have no problem finding a job. She was then asked to bring her spouse (me)in the next day 11/20/2010.We went to the appointment. We were given an impressive presentation and was shown a video of a job applicant and that was what they would make for her. We were presented with a contract offering their services for $5,500.00 and another $1,500.00 due 90 days after she was employed. We asked if we could take the contract home to study it and was told that the offer was only good for that day. Their employee indicated to us That Chandler Hill had an "exclusive" list of employers and had the names of people who did the hiring and she would get past the "gatekeepers". He left the office so we could talk about it. We agreed to sign the contract. I paid for the services by credit card.  She started making weekly appointments with her job coach (john Singer) to spruse up her resume and to make her video.She started having phone interviews with her job coach. She started sending out resumes, networking and doing the things her job coach told her to do. After several months of work on her job search she was told to do research on companys on her own. So much for the Exclusive" list of employers. She was also sending out resumes supplied to her by Chandler Hill. Many of which were returned as undeliverable. She started getting frustrated when her networking had not resulted in a single job interview. She complained to John Singer (coach). He completely stopped all contact with her. He missed conferences and finaly after several e-mails to him he replied to an e-mail saying she should contact Ms Daily. By that time we had sent a registered letter return reciept requested.We filed a complaint with the BBB expressing our dissaatification with Chandler Hill. We recieved an e-mail from G Daily setting up a phone conference on 5/11/2010. She asked what we could do to resolve the problem. I asked for $3,500.00 back as all they had done was "spruce up" her resume. On 5/24/2010 we recieved a threatening letter from Sarah Hightower Hill CEO saying they had fullfiled their contract (which was a 2yr agreement) and a mutual release agreement she would forgive $1,500.00 which was due 90 days after securing employment. She also replied to the BBB the same day saying that  this was the first she had heard of the clients dissatisfacation with their service.(smoke and mirrors) On 6/8/2010 I replied to her letter telling her that I was not impressed by her threats or implying I had made threats to the company. The only threats I made was that I was going to expose her company for fraudulant business practices. I started my research of this company and found on the BBB web site that if you research Bernard Haldane you will find Bernard Haldane AKA Chandler Hills Partners INC. This is important because he had complaints filed against him in several states by the AG's offices.See
http;//www.houstonpres.com/2005-08-25/new/fool-s-gold/1
I have filed complaints with AZ AG's office, FTC, Cosumers Complaint Agency and news departments. All anyone has to do is google Bernard Haldane to see what a creep he was. You will notice I have only used reputable sources, no blogs. I have all documents supporting my claims. This has gone much farther than money. I want to expose these people so they can not hurt the most vulnerable of us. Those who have kids to feed and a roof under their heads and find themselves unemployed. My wife is still unemployed and I am a disabled vet and we live on my small pension. I am not a competetor of Chandler Hill.

Similar complaints to theose below were made on Ripoff Report, which now states that they were shown to be made by a competitor posing as a former client.  However, it is not entirely clear how impartial the research is as Ripoff report requires a fee for 'investigating' accusations.

From an interview with Sarah Hightower Hill at http://somewhereincanada.com/2cents/index.php?action=recent :

'Making it clear that she is not speaking specifically about Magedson's site, Hill says that online bashing is "one of the biggest dilemmas facing American business today."

"All of us," she says, "are at the mercy of what people might write about us online, even if those people wish us ill will or have nothing to do with our business. It's a very damaging thing."'

2010-07-01 [anonymous client complaint]
[ed note: Chandler Hill representatives have claimed that these posts are all being made by one disgruntled individual, therefore we are asking that posters provide names.  However, because this post includes additional detailed information we are posting it despite the anonymity]

I was also scamed by this company. They are complete frauds. I have filed complaint with AZ Attorney General office,FTC,Consumer complaint agency. I incourage everyone to file complaints with these agencies. The more people complain about the business the better chance we have to stop this rip-off.They got me for $5,500.00.
They post jobs on career buiders.com and when your application is entered you get a response From Chandler Hill. Then they set up an interview and when you show they tell you that job has been filled but they start their sales pitch and ask to bring your spouse in the next day. THAT is where they get you. They present you with a contract. I paid them by credit card. After sending out 100's of resumes from their "exclusive" client list I never got any response from employers. When I complained I was I got a threatening letter from Sarah Hightower Hill CEO saying that they have fullfilled their contract and it is illegal to make threats about filling complaints with consumer fraud.
After researching this firm I have found that they are a spin-off company of Bernard Haldane who was run out of business for the same fraud as Chandler Hill practises under a new name. IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY THIS COMPANY, Run DO NOT WALK. --guest
2010-06-21 client experience
How interesting, I had similar experience with Mr Vargo. Before joining Chandler-Hill as a client Mr. Vargo stated that they have the Fortune 1000 companies in the Houston area as corporate clients as well as other major companies. He stated that they would be able to place me in a career position in 30-45 days making $600,000 plus per year, easily, especially with my experience and educational profile.  My 'profile' results showed that only 1% of the people in the country matched my educational qualifications and profile and that I would be in high demand for executive position. He stated that they were charging me the standard $13,000 fee possible based on how quickly they would be able to find me a position. He stated that my profile/resume would be sent to all their corporate clients however when asked for proof of this I was given none.
Chandler Hill teaches/trains its' ‘employee’ clients NOT to use the job placement websites or to send your resume to the HR departments, they claim it is a waste of time, yet that is all they do. I first started working with Alex Luingas for 12 month with zero result (not even one telephone interview)  and after complaining due to lack of results Jon Vargo stated that he would personally get involved and 'reach out' to his contacts and corporate partners on my behalf. After few weeks he failed to do so or prove otherwise. In fact he would not respond to ANY of my emails asking what companies he spoke to on my behalf.
Their 'professional resume writers' don’t really do anything. They make you fill out all kinds of 'assignments' and the software automatically fills in a word document to write the resume. If you ask to have them ‘spice up’ your resume with industry key words they tell you “no, we don’t do that”.  Your campaign manager really only has meetings with you to get you to sign paperwork stating that they are doing their job. If you question them on how they are assisting you they makeup excuses and tell you that they can’t move to the next step until you sign the paperwork saying they are doing their job.  When I asked to see a list of their ‘Corporate Clients’ or a list of non-search engine positions that they knew about, my campaign manager (at the time Alex Luingas and later on due to a lot of complains Bruce Clagg) got VERY mad at me and YELLED at me and tried to terminate my contract with them.  They do not actively assist you in finding a job.  Their website and paperwork states one thing but their sales people and campaign managers verbally tell you anything to keep you coming back and paying them until your two years contract is over.

They rush you through the process and in and out their door as quickly as possible. After nearly 2 years with them I have yet to receive a call from anyone that Chandler-Hill supposedly submitted my resume to nor have received a legitimate lead from their 'exclusive client list'.  The only positions that they have submitted my information for have been found through job search engines, not through their 'exclusive client list'.  

I have followed up with all of the companies that Chandler Hill stated that they submitted my resume/information to and half have responded back to me.  Half of them responded back to me and have never received my information nor heard of me or Chandler Hill. The positions and companies that they claimed to have submitted my information to have never received anything from them.  These were valid positions that I could have applied for but since Chandler Hill said that they were submitting for me I did not apply.

I am unemployed and I wasted $9,500.00 of what was left of my savings with this firm based upon verbal promises of employment.  Someone needs to expose them and stop other people from falling for this scam! --ffrank --guest
2010-03-16 Chandler Hill Partners is a respected industry leader
Chandler Hill Partners is a well respected and industry leader in the field of career development, executive job search and corporate outplacement. I have recently been hired by Chandler Hill Partners as a certified professional resume writer & career consultant to assist them in several projects over the next few months. I have worked with all the major companies such as Right Management and DBM, Chandler Hill Partners is by far the best experience I have had. The focus on training is superior to anything I have been through. My projects will have me helping Chandler Hill Partners with a few of their Fortune 500 clients manage more than 5,000 individuals through career transition in the next few months.

When you deal with as many clients as Chandler Hill Partners has, you are bound to have a few client issues. The posting on this site regarding the FTC is not about Chandler Hill Partners and is meant to create awareness for the work from home scams, classified ad scams and envelope stuffing scams, and not legitimate businesses such as Chandler Hill Partners.

The FTC post on this site seems odd and I would consider the comment from the site editor, "Please keep in mind the possibility that the posts below are entered by competitors." - Btucson.com Editor.

What impressed me the most with Chandler Hill Partners and why I decided to take on this contract was their past history. Chandler Hill Partners is the go to company for many Fortune 1,000 companies and government agencies. When Katrina hit the gulf coast, Chandler Hill Partners was asked to provide services to the 10's of thousands of individuals displaced and needing employment. Chandler Hill Partners volunteered their services helping thousands find employment.

That says a lot about a company in my opinion.

Do your homework before you make any judgments about a company based on a few postings on the Internet from individuals who have never worked with Chandler Hill Partners. I did my homework and I found that they have been a member of the better business for nearly 20 years and over that time period they have had a dozen or so issues and resolved all of them to the satisfaction of the bureau. Every business has client issues and how that company deals with it is how I measured Chandler Hill Partners. They have an A+ rating with the BBB.

They are the only firm that I am aware of that requires all of their consulting staff to be certified by an outside agency. That's unheard of in this industry and demonstrates their leadership and commitment to quality service.

I hope this posting has helped and I look forward to my work with Chandler Hill Partners.

2010-02-11 Take a Human Development Course at a Community College for Less !!!! no
You can take the Class "Human Development " 101 for $50.00 or Less at a Community College. They give you all The Personality and Career Testing including the Meyers Brigg test.They teach you how to interview, finding leads and Resume writings. At CHP it reminded me of my 8th Grade class with the questions and the sheet you fax back to them for a second meeting. It was so deja vu. The sheet asking me of my dream job was what my I did in 8th grade. If you want to save some money take the college class and never sign a contract !!! Never !!!

2010-01-12 dishonest sales tactics
Before joining Chandler-Hill as a client Mr. Vargo stated that they have the Fortune 1000 companies in the Houston area as corporate clients as well as other major companies. He stated that they would be able to place me in a career position in 30-45 days making $100,000 plus per year, easily, especially with my experience and profile.  My 'profile' results showed that only 3% of the people in the country matched my qualifications and profile and that I would be in high demand. He stated that they were charging me the smallest fee possible based on how quickly they would be able to find me a position. He stated that my profile/resume would be sent to all their corporate clients however when asked for proof of this I was given none.
Chandler Hill teaches/trains its' employee clients NOT to use the job placement websites or to send your resume to the HR departments, they claim it is a waste of time, yet that is all they do. After nearly 60 days Jon Vargo stated that he would personally get involved and 'reach out' to his contacts and corporate partners on my behalf. After 2 week he failed to do so or prove otherwise. In fact he would not respond to ANY of my emails asking what companies he spoke to on my behalf.
Their 'professional resume writers' dont really do anything. They make you fill out all kinds of 'assignments' and the software automatically fills in a word document to write the resume. If you ask to have them spice up your resume with industry key words they tell you no, we dont do that.  Your case manager really only has meetings with you to get you to sign paperwork stating that they are doing their job. If you question them on how they are assisting you the make up excuses and tell you that they cant move to the next step until you sign the paperwork saying they are doing their job.  When I asked to see a list of their Corporate Clients or a list of non-search engine positions that they knew about, my case manager got VERY mad at me and YELLED at me and tried to terminate my contract with them.  They do not actively assist you in finding a job.  Their website and paperwork states one thing but their sales people and case manager verbally tell you anything to keep you coming back and paying them.

They rush you through the process and in and out their door as quickly as possible. After nearly 2 month I have yet to receive a call from anyone that Chandler-Hill supposedly submitted my resume to nor have received a legitimate led from their 'exclusive client list'.  The only positions that they have submitted my information for have been found through job search engines, not through their 'exclusive client list'.

If Chandler Hill Partners is not a SCAM, then why does the FTC warn all of us to avoid companies like them!!

Do not get tricked into this scam. I know it is hard times for all of us who have been laid off or jobless in some other fashion, but please do not let these people fool you. " --guest
2009-11-07 Names required on postings - possible competitor accusations
Editor's note:  A Chandler Hill staffer contacted us stating that competitors were making anonymous accusations against Chandler Hill.  The staffer stated that Ripoff Report had investigated and found the accusations false: http://www.ripoffreport.com/Employment-Services/Rip-off-Report-Inves/rip-off-report-investigation-9gded.htm

Please keep in mind the possibility that the posts below are entered by competitors.  For any new poster, please leave a name and concrete details.  Generic 'scam' posts are generally deleted.

If you are a jobhunter, some useful sites are monster.com, careerbuilder.com, dice.com, and craigslist.com.  Also remember to network on facebook.com and linkedin.com.  Freelance jobs can sometimes be found at guru.com and elance.com but are pretty competitive. --guest

2009-09-29 I didn't know till after I had already gone to the 1st meeting...
I got an email last week asking me to call CHP, as they wanted to interview me.  I went to the meeting today all dressed up and ready to make some headway in my job search.  HA!  I think not! It became clear toward the end of the meeting that it was a scam, so I called my HR friend (in the biz for 20 years) and told him about what happened to me - he was able to tell me what happened in the meeting before I even shared it with him.  Evidently, Chandler Hill is just another of the many cookie cutter scams that are preying on the unemployed.  I now feel bad for the other poor souls that were there today unknowingly being robbed.  WOW!  Glad I got the scoop from my bud b4 going any further." --guest
2009-09-11 [anonymous customer complaint]
RUN! Do yourself a favor and do not get involved. All they will do is just teach you how to contact employers and most of them are not even interested in talking to you anyways. They talk big but do not produce realistic results.

2009-08-23 My Experience
I had anexperience with them also.  It sounded way to good to be true.  They were going to find me a $150,000 job.  They have a good line of BS.  I would be happy to pay if it was due after I found a job, but they wont do that.   In my gut I knew it was a scam, but they made it sound great.  I steered clear.  A company thay preys on people in their darkest hour is the definition of a lowlife. --guest

2009-04-29 Question
For those of you that have had dealings with this company already.  Do they charge for their services or are they a "headhunter" that is free and the employers pay?  The reason I ask is because my husband had an "interview" with them today and then told me they wanted to meet with me and I just find that odd and strange.  He also does not know how they got his resume and it was my understanding that they didn't tell him.  I'm doing my research on this company because I just find it odd and I'm not paying anyone to find me a job. --guest
2009-03-16 Interesting
Great Success, interesting you have been a customer for 5 months but do not indicate they have had success in finding you a job! They called me after reviewing my resume that I never sent them! Sounds like a sales call to me, even make it sound like an employer calling for an interview and do not represent themselves as an agency, very unethical." --guest
2009-03-11 Great Success
I am having a different experience all together. I have been a client of Chandler Hill Partners for about 5 months. I have been given a process that has open the doors of opportunity for me to advance my career. I don't see how this gentlemen without using the service can guess how they do business. I have had nothing but a positive experience with Chandler Hill Partners --guest
2009-02-18 Chandler Hill Scam
I was called by Chandler Hill Partners (CHP) for an interview. It was a sale pitch to get me to pay for the privilidge for them to teach me how to interview and have acess to their "Database". It was a total scam. If you need to be coached for an interview you have no business being there in the first place and you should get weeded out. I tried to post my commnet on RIPOFF.COM but CHP has paid the extortion fee and it willnever get posted. I am not competitor, I am Mr. Brown from Powder Springs GA. I was shocked to see the people there that really needed a job and how they are taken advantage of in their time of need. You will go though about three months of "PREP", which is how long it takes to pay. YOU ARE YOUR OWN BEST SALESPERSON--DONT GET RIPPED OFF. Approach with caution, ask questions and insist on the answers in writting. You will excorted out the front door as was I. Remember, if a person won't put in writting, there is a reason." --guest
