NACES does not police it members - all complaints are sent to its members but NACAS does not police their activities or take action on complaints.
NACES does not require professional peer review of degrees submitted for evaluation, does not require thesis review for higher degrees and consequently its evaluations are professionally meaningless.
NACES only requires its members to hold evaluation records for one year, meaning that clients will have to pay to be re-evaluated with every job change.


Amazon is a great financial success. I'm an investor and customer - but their customer service is insulting and incompetent. While, they generally provide a good selling service experience on simple common items, where they fail utterly is trying to understand what would make their customers - better customers on something that requires accurate dimensions, weights, and colors:

1. There is no contact point on the Amazon site for communication regarding Amazon customer service - just third party sellers.
2. Amazon does a miserable job at policing its sellers and their own ads regarding standardizing product descriptions and making sure they are correct. About 80% of Amazon product ads are incorrect or incomplete regarding critical specifications of the their products.

I would have much rather dealt with Amazon directly, but again they have no Amazon service feed back or way of reaching customer service directly on their web site. Even though Amazon is clearly successful, as an investor and a customer - I know they could be far more successful if they provided a method and listened to their customers.


Like most of the other car search engines, carguru search engine designers didn't comprehend how stupid car dealers really are and make their search criteria entries for the cars advertised more idiot proof. Consequently, car dealers totally incorrectly describe cars and their features, misuse or don't use trade marked features, and consequently the search engine can't find what you might be specifically looking for. They know what the problem is with the car dealers, but they have chosen not to try correct it. Forget finding a specific car with anything but very standard/generic features.


As you can see from other ratings - CarsDirect is probably the worst of the online car search engines. Unless you are looking for a totally generic car, cars direct is a total waste of your time and energy. Sad, because this could be a useful service with just a little basic search engine design competency.


Like most online car search engines - cars.com search engine is awful. It will flood you with cars that don't match your criteria - even when it shows a match. They don't enforce any kind of seller standards, so sell descriptions are vague to almost non-existent - if not completely incorrect. I can't tell you the number of times I have tried to confirm particulars only to find that the cars.com seller's car really doesn't have the features advertised. Unless you're looking for a generic car with nothing particular in mind - cars.com, like autotrader and cars. Direct and carguru - is essentially a very big waste of time.
