i went to ths company looking for a security job and i spoke to a female by the name of Ms. Santiago and she tole me that they have job openings at this time and that i should come in and bring a 80 dollar deposit for my background check and uniform i then agreed to come. i went to the place the next day and gave her the 80 dollars and she then said that i need an extra 194 dollars for the class and certificate and at that time she promised to me that i was gonna start the job after the i take the class and i would start at 13 dollars an hour at a musuem by the seaport. she then gave me a referral after i took the class and told the class that they was gonna get a drug screening when we get to the job place. The referral said it doesnt promise a job but the place she sent me to was summit security and when i went there and they told me that they are not affiliated with R.T.C.E. security at all, and that they called r.t.c.e security and told them to stop sending them people there. So therefore the lady at r.t.c.e security just took my money and lied to me in my face. So can anyone help me and others that see R.T.C.E as a good choice buts its not. 274 dollars for nothing

    Damn the same thing happened to me. I saw an article in a local paper and called for the Security Positions they had available. Not knowing the next 24 hours I would learn to regret for the rest of my life. Considering I just received my 8 hour & 16 hour Certificates 2 weeks ago and was eager to put my skills learned to use I normally would have been more cautious. After I left a message a Ms. Destiny called back and said come in with $125 for the UNIFORM. She gave me exact directions to her office for a 5pm next day inteview/deposit. Excitd to finally be workng, I borrow the money feeling confident that I already had the job she mentioned, sitting down at a receptionists desk signing visitors in and out and watching monitors. Loved it. She also told me I start at $9 an hour and would make as much as $15 an hour once I receive my NYS Licensing ID.

    I go dressed to impress in my black suit, white collared shirt, and ready copies of completed resume. Problem begins as the story changes once I get there. Now in order to get this "dream" security job it required me to also need to get a Fire Guard ($149) license and a Metal Detection ($249) training . These folks must rip innocent people off all the time because if you don't know any better you would think you were buying into their company instead of their scam.
    I came in looking for a job not to pay for additional training but it sounded legit to me, you are the professionals cause I'm hungry to work, anywhere and if thats what it takes RTCE knows what they're talking about !

    Well they say initial here and sign this and reschedule me to come back in a week for the BALANCE DUE of $298. I was shocked and didn't want to appear inexperienced as I realized something was definitely wrong. You see because as soon as you walk in the door in their minds thats your deposit whether you know it or not. So out of the $125 I brought in according to what I initialed the first $1 to $100 dollars is NON-REFUNDABLE.
    And to think Peoples Court is one of my favorite shows. (smh) You know after getting home and realizing I didn't need the Metal Detection, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Rocket Scientist Training so soon I was really pissed. Whatever is pass pissed off is not even close to how fuming mad I still am. It's ridiculous how companies like this are allowed to operate and prey on the UNKNOWING like myself in an economy like we as a country are experiencing. If there is anyone out there that has powers to put scam training companies like this out of business please let me know
