All the negative comments are true. They want you to pay too much to certify, they dont care about you. You cannot talk to them, inadequate ways of communication place in order to confuse you.
This is NOT your own business. You are merely contracting (1099) which means that if they want to pull the plug on you, for no apparent reason, in the middle of a contract they can. Which means that you got no $$ coming in.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THOSE IN HERE THAT SAY ARISE IS GREAT. ARISE HAS PEOPLE OF THEIR OWN, TROLLS IF YOU WILL, THAT WRITE POS. TO OFFSET THE NEG.COMMENTS
They have you pay $260. to certify with AAA. Then only half the class is really what they needed. So you feel like you just got jack-slapped. You did the right thing, you studied, practiced and did all that, just to find out that you got swindled. The class was poorly instructed, which makes me think it was on purpose to confuse you, cause remember your just a pawn and all they needed was your money. All the sacrifices you made with your family and time all for nothing.
Utter disgust. They are clever and deceitful in their business practices. Believe me, I gain nothing from this but if i can spare somebody the agony of what many of my classmates and I endured, then it was worth it. I would never want anybody to go through what we did.
By the time you spend all that money on them (Arise) you dont make enough to offset that cost. And there are plenty, you got certification with arise, cert with client, computer, headset (2 kinds) software, you name it. Yes you can right it off, but whats the point if you are not working.
They only care for their business, not yours, trust me. Artificial sense of security is all they offer, a smokescreen if you will. I would not waste my money or sacrifice my family for this, its too much to loose.
