This is the worst place to ever try to seek employment. The bottom line here in this agency is that the old guy's motive is to make a profit. So, if you come in there with degrees and experience, it doesn't matter. He looks for quick cash, so he will place you with temp opportunities in any field. That's right, he places people in non-entertainment jobs too. Times are tough right? He has to pay rent in the office building in West Hollywood, so might as well place people anywhere. He does place people with jobs, but he is very selective. I don't know his methods of choosing, but I think your appearance, and relative entertainment experience has a lot to do with it. The only thing I was offered by this guy was a job 30 miles away, getting paid for 4 hours that was broken up in a 9 hour window. Plus, the job was only for 4 Fridays. Needless to say, at the end of the term, it would cost me to do that job.

Wow I wish I had seen all this before wasting my time with this company. My first impression of this agency was. Hm very Hollywood right down to the screaming 85 year old owner in his office wearing the fashion of a 15 year old. I felt very degraded when I was asked to stuff into a pill box of an office with 2 other applicants to take a computer tested with the latest version of Windows 2003. Very cutting edge. I interviewed with a very pleasant woman who I felt was doing her best to help me. A few days latter I was called by the owner of the company and presented with a temp job that I was over qualified for. But what really got to me was that during this phone call I was told by the owner of this company, " Well do you want to work or not..." It was not so much that the position was just a hair above minimum wage but the fact that I have a degree and more then 13 years experience in my field and I clearly asked not to be contacted for temp work. But the fact that I was approached with such disrespect for my background. I know temps are a dime a dozen but we are people too and should be given RESPECT! I STRONGLY DISCOURAGE ANYONE FROM USING THIS AGENCY. Its a shame when the people you look to for help treat you like a disposable cup.

Horrible experience with this agency. Do not recommend. They made me wait 3 hours for an interview. The person I had the interview with was within view and was playing solitaire on his computer. Finally when I did get the interview they told me that it was in my best interest to take a job that was not in my interest area because, "there are a million people who would take it over me." They are horrible!!! Go elsewhere. Comar Agency is just is bad. I do recommend Eleventh Hour. They are good. Good luck!

I signed up here while unemployed and looking for a job in entertainment. They seemed to love me when I interviewed and promised me meetings and jobs within days, but I never got anything through them. The office itself seemed very unprofessional... the staff was weird and there was a big hairy dog running around that kept licking my legs. This place is OK if you're desperate, but you're better off finding work on your own.

Where do I begin? I waited in the lobby to interview for 2 and a half hours, while I watched the agent (who was going to interview me) play solitaire on her computer. Once they took me on as a temp they NEVER once called me in for a job that reflected any of the career paths I had specified, AND when I took a temp assignment at an Ad Agency I found out from ANOTHER temp there that there were countless openings in the field I was looking for a job in, but my agent had NEVER called me. To boot, they paid me a smaller wage than I was promised, and refused to return my calls when I left messages regarding this issue. SO UNPROFESSIONAL! This is NOT the way to break into a career!

I first went to the Friedman Agency as a graduate: green as the grass on my front lawn. With no work experience, I was told that the Friedman Agency was "the place" to go to get a job in the entertainment business. No such luck. When I arrived for myfirst interview, the owner called his employees into his office and began yelling at them. I could see everything through the glass windows, and they clearly did not care. After my interview, I was told to call in everyday to see if they had work for me. Of course they never did. I then went back five years later with a lot of work experience under my belt. This time I was not told to call in every day, but more like once a week. Hmmmm...needless to say they never called me for a job. Obviously they place some people, but I never got a job through them, nor a warm and fuzzy vibe.

this is a great place to temp if your working hard to "make it" in the business. they only put you in situations with movie companies and music companies (things like that all entertainment related)
