“Out for all they can get”
They take 20% of your pay on top of tax, so if you are a student you only get half of what you earn. Most of the jobs they offer you are minimum wage so you're literally working for about $8 an hour which is completely illegal. They charge you $150-$250 a year on top of that, which is pretty standard for talent agencies but they never warn you that you're going to get stung with another couple hundred dollars of ACC tax which they manage to avoid and put onto their already ill-paid contractors. They are completely inflexible as well and if something pops up and you can't make a shoot, no matter how minimal your part/pay is, you will get stung with $90 no show fee. I had an exam on one day, which is an obvious priority and made an honest mistake, letting them know immediately which they took as an opportunity to take $90 from my next pay. Also, they had me driving out 50km to get to a shoot and take other people for them and didn't even cover my gas (only paying $10) even though they said that they would. Not worth the hassle, not worth the stress, not worth the minimal money. DON'T SIGN WITH THESE GUYS.
