This morning, I was surprised to find an e-mail with the subject line, “P.a. Bootcamp.” There were also several new replies to my post from a few weeks ago regarding the PA Bootcamp.
“pa bootcamp staff” writes:
Can we ask you why you are slamming our services when you haven’t attend camp yourself and are basing this negative support against us and our services, off of no fact.
I wrote about the camp because Sophya asked my opinion. I once worked for an agent who insisted on replying to every single phone call and e-mail he received on the day that he got it. Sometimes he’d reply at ten o’clock at night, so he wouldn’t have to actually speak to the person, but still, he always called back. I don’t always get to it the same day, but I do try.
The only information available to me was on the PA Bootcamp website. As I said in my original blog, the site did not impress upon me the need for such a service. I would have been happy to be proven wrong, but $285 is an awful lot of money to spend on something I was unsure of.
I find “slam” to be a rather pejorative term. I’m pretty sure I made it clear that my opinion was, in fact, just an impression of the service. Of course, I could very well be wrong, and PA Bootcamp may be the best training available.
I should note that only one commenter claims to have attended the camp, and he gave it a good review. I would also note that this comment came after the series of comments directly from PA Bootcamp staff.
Also, the commenters failed to offer is any concrete reason I should change my initial opinion. They simply suggested that, were I to try the service (for $285, mind you), I would become a believer in PA Bootcamp.
