I’ve noticed since I’ve begun doing studies with PPD, they’ve become more deceptive in terms of recruitment. They say one thing over the phone or even in person, but when you get in the room it’s 100 ent bait and switch. People aren’t going to Worldwide anymore because of how bad they got with it. They tell so many lies in person and they think because we’re black and they’re white; that we are unintelligent and stupid. Don’t be fooled by the smiles, white people know that black people are inclined to believe to naturally believe and trust them.
I recommend everyone that experiences this to call IntegReview and complain about their experience. Eventually they’ll get sick of people calling and address PPD’s shadiness. Even if they’re not able to crackdown on issues of deceptiveness at recruiting, they’ll begin to investigate in other areas of the research processes and they’ll get in trouble like they did last year. Remember when they didn’t have studied for awhile, they got in trouble for being shady in other areas of the clinical research process. I heard they were letting pregnant people in or people would check in and not be pregnant and then leave pregnant. Letting people in that didn’t pass their drug screenings, etc:

perhaps in place of "we're black and they're white," we could just substitute, "they think that because we're [mostly poor and often desperate], that we are unintelligent and stupid." Poor and desperate fits me and most of my lab rat pals.
although on the other hand, i didnt pass a BP screening at a small clinic in the South (it shall be nameless) but i made it into the study where, once i became relaxed, my BP was fine. so maybe i will like it if they look the other way at my screenings.... although i don't use recreational drugs (unless someone is going to pay me of course)
by the way, is it "First come, first served" at Worldwide? I've never been there..
