I signed my daughter up for unlimited classes until age 21 she is almost 29yrs old. I digned her eith JRP...
This "modeling school" is a terrible thing. They somehow got my number and told me they wanted to see me because I could be one of the candidates to attend the modeling school. At first they are super nice and tell you pretty much whatever you want to hear. Once I got there and saw what kinda school it was, it was terrible. It was small and pretty old. Once we told the guy who attended us that we weren't interested he was rude and pretty much told me I was going to fail at life. He also insulted my mother and called us stupid. Worst experience of my life.
First of all they show you a video with a bunch of disney tv stars so that you think they put them through school. FACT: none of the disney stars actually went through their school. they are only contracted to say that they did.They are getting paidto say that they used john robert powers agency.
Secondly, they tell you that they only have a limited number of spots open and your child has been selected. FACT: they tell that to every one so you make a quick decision and feel like your child has a real opportunity.
Third, the agent tells you that all your money is refundable IN FULL. FACT: in the smallest fine print the contract they want you to sign states that all of the money is refundable EXCEPT the intial payment of 300$!! therefore your money is NOT REFUNDABLE IN FULL! like the agent states. Plus to cancel a contract with them they want you to get anotarized letter and mail it to the corporate office within three business days of signing the contract. Its easiest to just cancel your card and get a new one.
Lastly, this is a just a rip-off company that has been around for as long as it has because it knows how to get through legal loop holes. All the women who claim to be actressess are really paid off women from foreign countries. This company sells you fake information to make you feel like yourchild really has something special so they can take your money and use the legal system to their benefit doing so.
Terrible Terrible experience. The agent who helped us was named Andrea, she was of asian desent (i am not racist, simply describing her to the best of my ability for the next potential victim) her direct cell is [protected]).
I was hired by Michael Elbert as a vendor & after receiving compliments on my work from Inna Michelle Elbert, I was later stiffed. I know of FIVE vendors whose checks bounced within one month of my encounter so there is no hope of suing when they are busy laundering their money. They are criminals. STAY AWAY!
It does not matter what your children look like. They want all of them & they want your money. Forget about confidence building techniques...if they file Chapter 11 because they can't pay their bills then why would you risk giving them any money? Real model agencies & acting schools do not have lists of complaints like JRP. I know a model agent who was hired to see children from JRP, paid by Michael Elbert, & the agent only hires adults. Just a way to pretend to keep people happy & feel like you are getting somewhere. It's a scam from start to finish.
It is hard to even categorize these people as human. Charming on the outside, but very nasty, greedy, & absolutely dispicable on the inside. It actually doesn't take much to get Michael Elbert to show his aggressive side. Michael & Inna are ACTING when they shower you & your children with praise.
I was told that my daughter needed head shots taken for the BIG talent show after the 5 classes of training...
I went online to read about an audition for kids today out in seattle at a macys. i dont even know if i am reading about the same company that my husband took our daughter to. all i know is i hope they didnt wait forever to be discouraged. just by reading comments like these pro or con. you all saddened me. this was for experience & fun. i dont need my 6 yr old to have her dreams taken by critics like you. we dont have 5000 or even 1000 to put to an agent. we just wanted a chance.
I took my daughter to John Robert Powers for a trial, but did not proceed with it. My mother wrote a check for almost $2000 dollars and I signed the
contract with the knowledge that I can cancel within the 3 days. I cancelled the next day. They had already cashed the check. I was taken to
collections and it is now on my credit report against me.
John Robert Powers is a rip off and a scam. I can't get a hold of anyone
to get this taken off of my credit. I don't know who to contact to resolve it.
Our daughter attends JRP classes in Omaha, NE. She's 12, and 5 feet 5 inches. Well, she just finished...

If you are thinking about wasting your time by going to an "audition" at JRP in Baltimore, beware you will not only waste your time but more importantly your money and your child's hopes and dreams. I took my daughter to one of these auditions on [protected] and at first I was all excited, the presentation was very uplifting and positive and I was ready to sell my soul so thatmy daughter could attend this wonderful program. Thank god i did my research and looking online at other reviews. hindsight is always 20/20 and boy am I glad I looked back. This company only wants your money nothing else. When we told the person we could not afford the 3, 000.00 for the program he became rude and said that our daughter did not make the cut anyway. PLease please stay away from this company!!
We signed a contract 18 months ago with JRP in Phoenix. We changed our minds within 24 hrs of the contract and wrote and handed in our intention to withdraw from the contract. It stated inthe contract that if we withdrew in 24hrs we would have a full refund. Despite many phome calls and a promise for refund theynever have and we are still owed $3, 250. Now they no longer take calls from us. What can we do to get our money back??? They are a really awful company and I strongly advise anyone to avoid them like the plague!
I had relations with JRP in Baltimore for over a year. Their use of inspirational talks and encouragement is all a way to shield what they REALLY care about---your money.
Do they bring in agents and managers? Yes. However I NEVER saw any jobs, money, or even real opportunities come from it. The auditions are just to get you in front of people and learn the "auditioning techniques" which are basically saying a :15 second commercial and walking out.
The classes are a joke, there is no curriculum or consistency. They allow the coaches to make up the classes as they go along, and if you are driving a long distance.. be prepared for frustration as their is no communication between the directors, coaches, and students about class cancellations.
The photography gets even worse, their idea of preparing you is telling you to bring in a bunch of clothes and then they pick them out 30 minutes before your supposed to shoot. So if something doesnt work out, OH WELL! You just paid $1500 for photos you dont like.
All in all, the program can build confidence and image development for kids. If thats all your concerned about, then great. Go ahead and pay for the classes. But if you expect to get anything else out of your money, your in for a rude awakening.
(Short and to the Point) Man these guys "SUCK". If I were you, I would read these reviews. There are more negative reviews then positive.
I am fighting to get money back that was taken from my Credit Card without my Authorization. One would say this is Border line THEFT Johnny !!!
But anywho this is specifically for the John Robert Powers of Baltimore Maryland. And last there Director. Well she has very poor professional skills. I mean I can go on for days but I wont. DONT DO IT. Its a waste of your money and more importantly, Time.
Again Look into these complaints. I believe they are more legit then the positive ones oh wait there aint that many.
