Written on: 19/05/2017 by funandgames12345 (1 review written)

Avoid this company, they are only interested in wringing as much money as possible out of you, with sales people masquerading as customer support, they have no regard for your goals or needs, only what they can extract from your wallet. An absolute waste of time, money and effort… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 14/11/2016 by Johnsonis22 (1 review written)

Monster have been trying to win our business for ages. Finally we decided to give them a go. The warning bells should have started ringing when the "account manager" tried to sell us a package for £500 that was available direct on their website for £150. The number and quality of cvs received has been abysmal. Also, their advertising is bordering on outright lying. Their partner network where "Job posted across 100s of partner websites" in fact means that they will buy cookie driven banner… Read Full Review

“FRUSTRATING!”

Written on: 06/11/2016 by Frederickj486 (1 review written)

The website is not user friendly. The results produced are not relevant. After 2 days of trying to reset password, I spent 1/2 hour on phone with rep to figure out it was something on their side, spent another 1/2 hour w rep trying to post position because the "inventory" wasn't loaded, once loaded it gave me 20 resumes for a job field that was irrelevant. Highly disappointed! … Read Full Review

“1 Applicant across 2 adverts, rude staff and...”

Written on: 14/09/2016 by Nevwray (1 review written)

You'd be better off pouring your money down the drain Having previously used Reed to place job adverts, I was constantly being approached by Monster to try out their alternative service, which I eventually took them up on and purchased 5 advert tokens. I am writing this review after placing my second advert and the best advice I could give any employers looking to recruit staff via online job postings, would be, stay well clear of Monster, not only will you get no responses, but the level of… Read Full Review

“No checking of recruiters”

Written on: 22/06/2016 by s_spowart (4 reviews written)

I received an email claiming to have seen my CV on monster completely out of the blue, which said I had been shortlisted for a job that I hadnt applied for without even a phone call prior. All it said was to confirm attendance by replying to the email. It had no phone number, no name of the interviewer, and it had the name of a company on there. I googled the name of the company and found a website for them which was conveniently off line. I suspect the company they claimed to be from… Read Full Review

“Apply, sign up for cloud services, stay jobless. ”

Written on: 07/02/2016 by Mr-Clandestine (1 review written)

Won't let you upload your CV in word format. Force u to use Google drive or Dropbox like trolls waiting under a bridge Search results displayed in a backwards caveman style layout with no resemblance to actual search If your hoping to get ignored by every employer, sign up for cloud based services you don't want or use just to apply for jobs and subsequently no longer own your work as per cloud based storage terms and conditions and stay jobless use monster.co.uk. Keeping you frustrated… Read Full Review

“Very Disappointing”

Written on: 06/10/2015 by JudiH (1 review written)

I came across Monster.com on a county sponsored work website in my state. I had not used them for about 7 years or so. I am actively looking for employment, and figured that all avenues were worth trying. I was very, very wrong. In the week that followed my enrollment and resume download I was besieged by both job offers, sales recruiters, both by phone and email. they all claimed my resume was an ideal match, even though most of the positions had nothing to do with my work experience… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional Staff”

Written on: 16/11/2014

We are a small business and received a call from a Monster.com representative asking if we had any hiring needs. "No, thank you." And we hung up. I do not OWE this unsolicited call an hour of my time, or even 5 minutes. And we don't have a need. The representative called back twice so he could hang up on us. We know who it was because we *69 the call, and it went back to Monster. So, the next time I DO have hiring needs, will we be considering Monster.com? I hardly think we will waste our… Read Full Review

“Monster Employees Horrible, Horrible, Horrible”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by Scott399 (1 review written)

Monster CEO, Do you know what your employees are doing and how they are treating their small business accounts? Do you care to know? If yes, please survey your small business customers directly as your employees have a bad habit of not taking accountability for their actions. Remember Monster too can fall at any given time as the Roman Empire ...especially when leaders do not protect their interests and solely rely on their staff to report on the great revenue stream. I could be off on… Read Full Review

Don't post your resume\personnel details... They share your details with other companies. You'll get numbers of emails and calls that are unrelated to your skills. I get at least 10 phone calls and 20-30 emails on day to day basis, unable to stop them… Read Full Review

“The most appalling sales approach - just dreadful”

Written on: 02/06/2014

I would have given them 0 stars but the 1 star sums it up. Call from Sales Person to arrange call back - all fine. He calls back and then after 1 minute decides I wont be enough of a cash cow and ends the call!!! No effort to understand my business, the industry or even engage appropriately. If he was a measure of the quality of staff at Monster selling I can only imagine how bad it would be if you were a jobseeker!… Read Full Review

“A pointless, useless, waste of bandwidth”

Written on: 20/05/2014 by McPhersondj363 (1 review written)

Monster.com is a pointless, waste of bandwidth and time. After having a resume uploaded for a year and a half, the only calls I received were from out-of-the-country head hunters, working for in country companies, looking for insurance... "associates". I finally had to get NASTY with them, on the phone, to get them to STOP CALLING ME. I found a great job, only through networking with friends. DON'T SIGN UP WITH THEM… Read Full Review

“Won"t go away”

Written on: 29/03/2014 by GHutchinson (1 review written)

Hope you don't have the unfortunate experience of giving Monster your address! The site will never let you go. They constantly send me emails after I have unsubscribed several times! I never got a lead from any of the hundreds of job offerings. I found a good job on my own simply by networking with friends and family. Monster was useless. All the site does is trash your inbox will jobs referrals to nowhere. DON'T USE MONSTER JOB SEARCH!!!!!!… Read Full Review
