this is one bad company a must to avoid and never use.

they charge stupid prices for a site with such a poor reputation and when you do pay, they delete the advert, then they send the most stupid emails saying why and refuse to refund ... what ... its bad.

GT, you only get one chance to take from me, full info passed to my credit card company who are giving me a full refund.

My advert was deleted and the email said

"Your ad has been posted in the wrong category. We believe your ad is better placed in Bar Staff & Management category."

Firstly, the job advert was nothing to do with bars, bars, clubs.

This is a money making wheeze as the category charges £17.90 to advertise

What a low life trick to make a few quid, tis no wonder they are losing customers, and money as well, what a underhand company they are

gumtree is no longer a popular site because of the very aggresive nasty way they treat customers, they cannot expect customers or loyalty.
It is no surprise to see all the bad comments here, I will never use them again, and unless you want rudeness and bad manners from them, take a wide berth and find somewhere else to advertise, paying them with such high charges would be plain stupidity

gum tree is a site to stay well clear of, placing an advert is just a nightmare and if you are lucky to even get an advert on, (that takes forever) they delete it, no matter if its free or you have paid for it, then they will not refund your money. These people are rogue traders.
PLUS, they try to put on your computer 20 plus cookies which are trackers and some they use to track your activity, pass your details onto others, maybe even your bank details. I set up a specific email address to advertise on gum tree and did not use that address anywhere else. Within 24 hrs I was receiving spam emails to that address, and only gum tree could have given that address out. If you want to keep your computer/phone private and all your information, never use the gum tree site

Gumtree - Processing Time a JOKE
I have a job for someone out there and I thought post it on Gumtree, what a mistake that was. It says adverts will be posted in seconds, but may take up to 4 hours or maybe 12 hours???? That is how vague the muppets at Gumtree are. So after 2 days of processing, yes that over 48 hours later, my simple job advert has not been posted and someone out there desperate for a job is being let down by Gumtree. OK, its my fault I should have researched Gumtree and found out how many people have complained about the site. Its a small time operation that cant deliver and I should have posted my advert somewhere...

OVERPRICED Advertising rates

try to get a job post on gumtree ? They ask you pay over £17 and what for, the site is a white elephant nowadays. Just select a job section and look to see how many new ads are on the site, there might be one today then a couple yesterday and so it goes on, 3 days old, 6 days old a few here and there. This must have a double bubble, no jobs, job seekers will not use the site, no job seekers and no employers will use the site let alone pay the over inflated prices.
The management of gumtree must be pretty thick if they think they will make make money this way, to be honest, children could run gumtree better than the current management.
SO EXPENSIVE FOR A WHITE ELEPHANT, no wonder the complaints here keep on growing

You can tell people are avoiding them just by looking at how many ads are posted each day, the jobs section is just a farse now.
Nobody but nobody will trust them again and the general advice is never spend money with them, remember once they have your money, they do not give refunds, very illegal.

voted worst site ever all over the net, review sites, forums, you name it, the gum tree reputation for being nasty and rude and impossible to deal with, has spread all over the net, twitter and facebook included.

You can tell people are avoiding them just by looking at how many ads are posted each day, the jobs section is just a farse now.
Nobody but nobody will trust them again and the general advice is never spend money with them, remember once they have your money, they do not give refunds, very illegal.
They are destroying themselves day by day and the funny thing is, they don't seem to know it

rude and arrogant company to deal with, have been trying to advertise on their site, its like dealing with a "mickey mouse" outfit, advert never goes live,worst of all, they do not have the common manners to tell me why, they just delete. It seems most people experience this very bad behaviour and I would advise anyone thinking of using the site , don't, they are not worth it

Gumtree - Processing Time a JOKE
I have a job for someone out there and I thought post it on Gumtree, what a mistake that was. It says adverts will be posted in seconds, but may take up to 4 hours or maybe 12 hours???? That is how vague the muppets at Gumtree are. So after 2 days of processing, yes that over 48 hours later, my simple job advert has not been posted and someone out there desperate for a job is being let down by Gumtree. OK, its my fault I should have researched Gumtree and found out how many people have complained about the site. Its a small time operation that cant deliver and I should have posted my advert somewhere else

Folks, the best advice is to avoid gum tree, like many here, just cannot get an advert on. The most annoying thing is that they have my email addy and have started spamming me with "gumtree news". This low life company cannot be trusted, never give them personal details especially credit cards, goodness knows what they do with private information, be warned, dont use them

what a site -- never again. I could get to the moon quicker than get an advert on this site, in a nutshell it is a disgrace, a sham and if you are thinking of using them, SIMPLY DON'T.

no longer a usable site
tried and given up with this mob, it is now clear that the only job ads allowed are their own ads promoting money making schemes, proper jobs are not allowed. The site has become useless to most people now

“A joke for a classifieds site”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by twitnewsdesk (1 review written)

A joke for a classifieds site What is the matter with the site, struggle to get an advert live and if i do, its deleted, this must be the worst classifieds site around. Staff not interested and in general rude. I am not the only one, if you look at the site, the lack of adverts compared with a year ago is well down proving that people avoid them now, a very sad site with very poor management… Read Full Review
