CareersPlusResumes.com - Terrible Customer Service/Inferior Product
|2009-10-07 15:52:36 by Marc
|After having a difficult time with the customer service at CPR, I still had faith that the product would be good. Not great, mind you. This is not a high-dollar resume writing outfit. But, given their reviews, etc. I gave them a shot. |
$150 later, I am wishing I had followed my gut instinct. I received a re-written resume full of grammatical errors, erroneous information, and just plain mistakes. Things taken from my existing resume didn't even match! Cities, etc. After a nearly 2 page email of revisions, I received my second copy. Much better. I am partially happy. However, the writer did nothing of note. He/she basically took my information and moved it around to fit their format. There was NO noticeable wordsmithing or rewriting to speak of. And, the ASCII version was simply the word version saved differently - it was NOT set up for scanability. Oh, and forget about keyword inclusion...
I tried contacting CPR, only to be told I needed to speak with the writer about this, not them, as I had hired the writer. I let "Courtney" know I had in fact hired CPR, and THEY had hired the writer. So, I expected service from the company. No avail.
So, stay away. You can find a number of other services to do this. They do an OK job, but nothing, and I mean NOTHING remarkable. And the customer service is BEYOND ATROCIOUS. If I could say it, I would say f*** CareersPlusResume.com.

Thanks, it looks much better! I like the changes we have incorporated.
When can I expect my cover letter? I will need that before I can begin sending out the "new and improved!" resume.

|I also had a great result from using this company. The writer worked with me to convey my extensive military background and helped me get a civilian job. |
