resolved to the customer's satisfaction
On March 14 I was interviewed at Hunter Automotive by Julie Williams of The Manus Group. I was told congratulations after the interview and told to report for training on Wednesday the 16th for three days of training. At the end of the first day of training the class was told that there would be a "tuition" fee of $698.00 which would be refunded by the dealer after we had been employed 90 days. The next morning we were asked to come in one at a time to pay for the tuition. I was asked to sign a "receipt" which I was told I would get a copy of later. Friday afternoon the class was told that we had to pass two more interviews with the management of the dealer (Hunter Automotive) to see if we would be hired. At this point during a class discussion while the instructor was out of the room we all agreed that we thought we had already been hired. Nothing was ever said during the training until Friday afternoon that there was no guarantee of employment. At then end of the training just before the interviews we were given a "Certificate of Completion, " and the copy of the "receipt." On the receipt the terms were spelled out which stated there was no guarantee of employment. We were also told that there were 10 openings at Hunter in their multiple locations. Seven of us finished the class. On Saturday afternoon I received an email indicating I had not been chosen and please contact the Manus Group for help in obtaining a job at another dealer. I am out $698.oo with no job. I contacted Tom Hunter the owner by email and Rick Williams of the Manus Group on the 20th. Thus far I have received no response. I want a full refund.
