Additional Complaint Information

BBB Files indicate that this business has a pattern of complaints concerning its marketing practices that imply a company affiliation with airlines.   Marketing statements imply that transactions with American Careers, LLC are directly connected to airlines when the company instead provides information about the overall airline hiring process.  Persons seeking to return company materials for a promised refund must document their contact with Human Resources departments of airlines to qualify for adjustments, described in marketing information only as "guaranteed refunds."  The BBB wrote to the company on November 28, 2012 regarding these issues, asking that modifications be made to its materials to clarify its presentations and refund terms.   

On February 10, 2016, BBB received the following submission from American Careers LLC regarding the reported pattern:

"American Careers LLC makes no claims to be directly connected to the airlines. American Careers LLC does provide information as well as assistance with the overall airline hiring process. Persons seeking to return company materials for a promised refund must document their contact with Human Resources departments of airlines to qualify for adjustments, described in marketing information only as "guaranteed refunds." American Careers clearly provides our refund policies via our website.
