I was at my Wendy's callback today and waited AN HOUR AND A HALF to be seen. Now, if I was actually a part of SAG, the casting company and/or client would have to pay me for my time after an hour passes my appointment.
They auditioned 3 at a time and some groups spent more than 20 minutes in the room, and were then paired up again and then went in the group again for 20 minutes.
Finally, my group, the next to last one goes in. We read the copy and are excused. Total time? 3 minutes!
So here's me being wonderfully optimistic instead of negative and cynical.
