You can also post your profile to be viewed, so employers can contact you if they feel you are qualified to fill a position. In this way, SnagAJob.com claims to be similar to other job finding websites such as CareerBuilder.com or Monster.com.

Snag a Job provides a range of job types, from warehouse inventory jobs to higher level jobs that require further education or experience. SnagAJob.com also provides information on degree programs for people looking to improve their job finding chances.

So is SnagAJob.com Legit or a Scam?

Most people that are signing up at an online job database are looking for more traditional jobs that come with a steady paycheck, as opposed to online business or supplemental income opportunities. If you receive one of these offers after signing up with SnagAJob.com, make sure to investigate the company before investing any money.

In addition, according to their Full Privacy Policy, they provide your contact information to partner companies and third party companies in order to contact you with advertisements or special offers they think you might be interested in based on your site activity.

If you do not want to be contacted by these companies, you can try to change your Snag a Job profile to more accurately reflect the types of emails you would like to receive, but you may also choose to set up a separate email account to deal with the communication you receive from them.

    As an employer, I was hopeful that snagajob.com was a good place to post an ad, but what a nightmare! The user interface is awful, there is barely any kind of account management, and the worst thing was that they overcharged me for two months after I closed the posting. I couldn’t even cancel the account because their stupid site wasn’t working half the time.

    As for the applicants, uggh, what a disastrous disappointment. Most couldn’t even bother to capitalize their own names, and it was a posting for someone with solid written communication skills! A grim pool to draw from, and we finally just closed the ad after seeing the sad range of “talent” that snagajob attracted to our post. Then, as I say, adding insult to injury, the site kept charging us!

    To date there is NO response from their supposed customer service, so I’m guessing this place operates out of someone’s basement.

    Terrible experience — will never use them again, needless to say.

    Snagajob is a very bad, disgusting pitiful site, I can relate to what everybody is saying about them. From reading all these reviews I only come across maybe 2 or 3 positive experiences but when you read 95% of negative reviews versus positive, the majority rules and knowing this I will not be using this site anymore. I will apply directly to the company’s website. Good Luck to you all ad keep on trying, we will make it one day.

    Snag a job is only being paid to phish for personal information by their so called third party or second party. This phishing is against the law and the law is too stupid to figure the evidence is in the paid bills or bank accounts.

    I gave Snagajob a chance for almost a year. I should of read reviews on it first. I applied for several jobs on there and I never got a call back or heard anything from those companies I applied too. But then a month or two later I will continuously see positions available at the same jobs I just applied for a months or so ago accepting applications for the same positions. And I still see these same positions and businesses circulating and being sent to me to my email. Too bad all anyone can do is snooze the account and not delete it. I unchecked everything since I don’t want to receive anything from them again. Don’t go on that site. Ever.

    Signed up with them the other day, big mistake. There is a particular option that is hidden during registration that was leading college recruiters and salespeople to call my phone at all hours of the night.

    The particular hidden option in question is this:

    “Yes I am interested in furthering my education and would like to learn about opportunities” It only appears in your profile after registration, you can try to deactivate the option when editing your profile, but once you save the changes, the option just becomes reactivated.

    Privacy invasion. Now I get unwanted calls from telemarketers wanting me to buy their rainbow rubber ducky and college recruiters as far as Japan, wanting me to relocate and enroll in their college.

    The site is a waste. And as others have stated, there is no option to upload your resume. There is a link, but it takes you to a “page not found”

    I did manage to get in contact with them today and they have deleted my profile from the site.

    SNAGAJOB has two aspects NOT fully and completely disclosed before you sign up.

    1) The Job Alert emails you receive are based only on your geographic area. When companies have new jobs available in your area, you’ll receive Job Alerts if you have opted in to receive the emails -REGARDLESS of “fitness” for the job. If you are ONLY looking for work as an nuclear engineer you’ll receive all notices for exterminators, burger flippers, door-to-door Christmas card salesmen and security workers as well.

    2) While TECHNOLOGY permits the company to IMMEDIATELY unsub you, they live behind the law which gives them 10 days to fulfill your unsub request, since that allows them to collect more revenue from their advertisers.

    These facts are NOT disclosed before you sign up.

    Do NOT enter any of your personal information with Snagajob! They started overloading my email account with emails for the same job opportunities multiple times per day. Then they started calling me from an “unavailable” number three to four times a day until I finally picked up and told them to stop calling me. When I tried to delete my account, there is no way to do so, you can only “snooze” your account, which means they still have all your info, and you can log back in whenever you want.

    Honestly I filled out my information on snagajob, but only after did realized that I should have read reviews on them. When I did read reviews on them, it was pretty much all bad stuff about them. So I decided to go to my acct on snagajob and delete all my information actually more like refilling the information with a bunch of blah blah blah, and then I snoozed my acct. But I did get an email from Kohls saying that if I want an interview to call them. So I don’t know if snagajob is legit or a scam but we’ll see after the lady comes into her shift so I can ask if she really did get my application.

    Absolutely dreadful. Do not Try to find work here, if you find a link to an position, just go to the employers website and apply directly though there. If you apply for a job though snag a job you WILL get an Email 2 minutes later saying tat you’re not being considered. Perfect proof right there that the site is a joke. I managed to get hired right away after I had quit using their services.
    Also do not listen to this Kanton guy, he’s clearly a SAJ sockpuppet, I mean seriously who would keep coming back to this page every few days just to heap more praise on the website unless it was their job to do so.

Immediately had a bad feeling about the site and changed/deleted all my information put my account on snooze AND requested a full delete of my profile.

    Looks like this “Kanton” person is the spokesperson for “Snagajob”, I applied at Coco’s and Carrows, and was told by the Corporate Office and by the Area Manager, that they will not interview anyone for a restaurant position unless they put all the personal info onto the “Snagajob” website first, this site oversteps boundrys as it asks for DOB, Age, Social Security Number, this opens up for Idenity Theft, it also is considered a “Third Party” and they SELL your info, Snagajob is a Sales and Marketing Firm, in Virginia the BBB has 23 complaints on file for these issues, and any company who has integrity regarding protecting and hiring quality employees would NOT expect a person to post all this personal info onto the internet, or participate in a business practice that sells its employees information. Just my opinion, I may be wrong. Would not recommend “Snagajob” or “Catalina Corp.”

    When you use snagajob you will be contacted by tons of calls asking about schools. I know, sadly I was desperate for work and had that terrible job. That is the reason it asks you for your DOB. Even when you put hyhyhyhse as your name you will still get calls. And you will continue to get calls for schools until you tell them one of these two things- You are in school and not planning on transferring and two your not interested. Dont ignore the phone calls because they will keep coming until you say one of those. Just a heads up

I have been been getting calls everyday for 3 years about schools that I can’t afford. You should check out Indeed, and Simply Hired website

    I read the negative blogs after submitting several applications for about a month on Snag a Job. I thought what waste of time and deleted Snag a job from e mail. BUT,to my surprise, a few weeks later had a phone call from an Employer that I had submitted application to and GOT HIRED with this desirable company. No complaints here. The trick is to customize each application/resume to fit the individual job you are applying for. A generic resume doesn’t do it. Sell yourself in the “if have anything to add” section. If you narrow your area of type job seeking, you are limiting your opportunities. I got a job less than 10 minutes from my home. Realize there are a LOT OF PEOPLE looking for a job. Make your resume/application stand out. Good Luck and happy job hunting.

    DO NOT USE THEM FOR HIRING EMPLOYEE’S

    They are overly aggressive until you sign the contract and then you can NOT get a phone call back from them no matter what time/day you call them or how many messages you leave. (I have been trying for 3 weeks now)

    The quality of the employee has been average, but the quality assurance tests that they use has NO physiological basis to it and does not truly reflect the type of employee that you are going to get. We have a high turnover business and have found this service to not change our turnover rate or quality of employee in the slightest. We are going back to craigslist to find employee’s (not great, but at least it was free)

    I put my resume on this website and was advised that a company was interested in me for hire. I was excited but only found out that the company was a scam and was almost out of 3000.000. This website I would think would have done a complete background ck on the companies that they are doing business with, the company that almost scammed me was
    World Networking Services International. They did the entire interview on line and of coarse they hired me, they then sent me money, which they wanted me to used 2 different Western Union locations. After contacting my bank and they researched the company and found the ck they sent was bogus. Very disappointed but yet relieved that I didnt follow thru and wire the money. Anyone getting a email with the named David Benitod as the contact STAY AWAY. he is a scam artist.

    If you were applying with a paper application and it asked for your SSN you would provide it without thinking twice, would you not? Sure you would, because you know an incomplete application will not get you a job. If you don’t prefer to put this information into a secure website, perhaps you should start looking for jobs the old-fashioned way.

    RIGHT – why do they need my exact date of birth right from the get-go. That is illegal. From the text on the page it appears they imply that they need to make sure you are at least 18 years old. WHY? Can a 17 year old not get a job? Besides – if you upload a resume that shows you have been working for however many ump-teen years how could that be an issue?

    I’ve written to them. But I am also thinking of contacting the ACLU.

The closest real life comparison I can think of is the ponze meeting you get inveted to for the sole purpose of generating leads to someone else.

    What if someone is mining this site for information? Do I really need to purchase a BA for a student loan that looks more like a house note? I tell them I’m taking the long road via community college.

    The cherry-on-top nasty is that here we are thwacking away at these computers like the kid in A.I. while there’s real work to be done that could be bringing in money and accomplishment. No blue fairy or green either sticking a job out the screen, hm?

    I was shocked when I saw how many bad reviews there were. It has been a couple of years since I used them and I just got back on since I have only recently needed to look for a job again and in the past they have been helpful with jobs in my area and I actually got a call backs and even an interview. So to me it did what it was supposed to do. The only issue I have with them is this bombarding with ads(some of which are scams)! It is really annoying and beneath them. If they want to be looked at as a legitimate company then they need to get rid of that or people will not use them anymore because they are not a scam as far as I have seen but they sure do allow anyone to advertise on their page making them look like one.

    While applying for positions on snagajob, you get bombarded with sales pitches and spam. Also, if you don’t get through the filters placed by the companies you’re applying to, your applications gets rejected right away. (I just got rejected from a temporary seasonal sales associate position, even though I have prior experiences in retail…) Poor job site and a waste of time, I would recommend using other job search engines or applying to the companies directly.

    Snagajob used to have a community section and comments but they removed all of them after a horrible amount of complaints from users. The sheer amount of spam has gone up, not down with them. Their listings are also not based on any known reality. For example they list Toys R Us as having overnight stocking positions available and are hiring. Only problem is that Toys R Us never had had that position in their company.

    They do sell your information and conveniently you can’t delete your profile. But you can change it. If you want to apply at a company go directly to their website. I would also advise businesses not to use these scam artists as they will never remove the listing as it pads their numbers.

    The site does show new job postings, once I entered my info I was attacked by spam emails with virus links. Use a different website for job research and/or a good anti-virus program. Good thing I start with special “spam only” email addresses so I can just stop checking them.

    A more useful stat for me as an employer is the number of registered jobseekers ACTIVELY seeking employment. 35 million people registered on your site in 13 years, SO WHAT?

    So close you can feel it … It’s not a scam They work through these companies like a temp service. If you have a bad work history,felony, no experience or education in the field you are applying, well… you will not receive a call. I do feel it’s bias as their requirements are not detailed. ie,. If you check that you have a felony. it reads it “will not necessarily keep you from hiring/position”, when in fact it does. It’s probably for tax purposes, like TANF (welfare). Thank you for your time and patience.

    I’ve dealt with this website for 6 months now. It has become progressively worse with time. At first it seemed great – submitting dozens of applications with a few clicks, finding localized hiring – but soon I got sick of it. I have never been contacted by employers of the website. That alone does not make me angry because I know I have weird hours due to school and most places are not willingly to work with those hours. But the fact that I’ve tried to unsubscribe from the SnagAJob emails twice without avail is ridiculous. I tried to unsubscribe the normal way; submitting my email address and waiting 10 days for the emails to stop. That did not work. I personally emailed the “contact” on the website and expressed my anger. I used to get about 10 emails per day from this ridiculous website. It has reduced to about 5 per day but it is still extremely irritating. There is no response from any of the website contacts. I do not know who personally runs this website but they’re either on a permanent vacation or they take pleasure in flooding people’s inbox’s with junk. And it is JUNK!! I click on one of their emails, exclaiming somewhere near me is hiring, and the link takes me a list of locations NO WHERE near me. Not even in the same state usually! This website is terrible and the customer service (IF it EXISTS) is run by a bunch of morons.

    Just a warning.

    My review isn’t about the numbers of scam artists and work from home scams on the website. In my experience, every job board has these. What I noticed about this website is that their jobs do not have a posting date (so the job seeker doesn’t know how old the job posting is) and the jobs from legitimate companies are not current. In a number of cases, I followed the instructions and went on the company site, only to learn the job wasn’t posted there. In another case, I contacted the contact person for that location and learned the job was already filled. As a job seeker, I want to be confident that the jobs I apply to are current and with this site, I really can’t tell.

    I give them a fair rating on sending applicants my way (very few qualified), but not on being on top of business ethics. Once you sign up and pay with a credit card you will be paying until you cancel. They do warn you in the fine print, somewhere in the thousands of tiny words when you click the agree button. They are up front about it, but I feel it is an unethical way to get an extra month out of Companies or struggling Small Businesses, but this seems mild compared to all the bad reviews I have read about snagajob. The good and the bad are always sorted out by Karma!

    I used a disposable email address last June in my Snag a Job profile. I still get 10 spam messages a day from all kinds of companies, (some legitimate), that they sold the address to. I have never used that address anywhere else on the Internet. I told them initially not to send me email, and I have confirmed it on the website. “They” don’t send me mail, everyone that bought their list is. It’s not productive to sit and click unsubscribe on every message. As I never gave these companies permission to email me, I block it at the server and report them to my ISP. If everyone did this, the ISPs will stop accepting mail from these companies. When they can no longer contact their real customers, they will re-think their decision to buy a mailing list from a bunch of scam artist.

I have also received numerous calls about going to one of their sponsored schools even after making sure I was not subscribed. I have to search through all their ads and junk just to be able to search for a job. I have not received a single call back after applying to numerous jobs. All the jobs want you to go their site and the info you had to spend time on entering on snag a job does not transfer to the employer’s site.

    Don’t waste your time/efforts applying to jobs listed through this website. Scam/fraud are strong words – so I will just say that there is a lot of untruths linked to this website and the companies that employ their services – and yet they made enough funds to move into a $27M new building in Richmond, VA and are apparently hiring all their young little friends. I’d say the average, re their posted photos, look like they might be old enough to have had a baby sitting job at one time and yet now find themselves employed giving adults out trying to find jobs to support their families with food/housing are are applying for jobs that they are way over qualified for, while their employees are boasting about spending time with their dogs and riding motorcycles. PLEASE! Use your Facebook expertise elsewhere! You’re simply giving out all of your personal information to someone who will more than likely use if for ID theft or SPAM. I have been getting SPAM mail and I have no idea who these people are so I treat them as SPAM and delete. Do NOT give out your SSN’s on any application. If a company, such as Home Depot, requires it on their application, go to their location nearest you, and confront them on this issue. Also – employers are not allowed to ask about your age nor try to disguise their attempts with such lame questions as “What year did you graduate” or “What is your exact birthdate”. You’re asking for a lot of heartache down the road. These companies do not even checkk their incoming applications from on-line: I know – I’ve been to several companies and followed up. NONE OF THEM EVEN CHECKED! AND ALL BUT ONE HAD EVEN HAD SO MUCH AS A PART-TIME JOB. If you’re serious about finding a job that indeed exists – invest your energies in yourself by going out and getting applications in person or handing our resumes with references, etc. Let companies see there is a real person looking for a real job and you took the time to seek their attention. And please, above all else, stop taking advice from these “kids” working at Snag a Job – ask them how long they’ve been working. Ask any of them how much real world experience they have. Ask them what their background is and in what area their expertise lies. Bottom line: do you really want to trust your future and that of your family members to some unknown idiot that looks like there sole experience lies in their Facebook entries?

    I don’t know what you are talking about with the spam emails and such, maybe every one needs to be more careful when it comes to reading things put in front of you. I used snag-a-job and was called for an interview within a few days. I eventually got that job and stayed there for over a year. I’m sure some of the job listings aren’t current, but when you’re looking for work you should be prepared to fill out as many applications as possible.

    Your right Jordan , Key word people “Read” Its not a giant scam people just dont read everything thats put on their screen and may unintentionally agree and accept to things and offers they dont want , but only because they did not read the information thoroughly. I haven’t tried Snagajob a yet , i just made a profile a few minutes ago but i believe if you pay attention to what your doing and read the information everything should be ok and you won’t have your email inbox drowned with emails from other companies and schools , as everyone says “spam” ect .

    I was at a career center looking online for local jobs. I found one that was near my location, and it was offered through Snagajob. I thought nothing of it, so I began to apply.

    At first it was the usual application questions: name, address, ZIP code, etc. But then it began asking questions such as “are you under 25?” and “have you been a full-time student within the past 6 months?”

    I thought nothing of it, even though the questions were odd.

    After completing the application, I hit submit. But instead of giving me a verification page or email, it sent me to a page on Phoenix Online trying to get me to take classes through a program. I was extremely frustrated that all I had done was sold my information to a bunch of third parties, and now for the past 4 weeks we’ve been harassed by telemarketers and Phoenix University reps.

    Do not go to Snagajob. There are no jobs to be had, only people taking your information and selling it.

    Fellow Wage Slaves, Don’t waste your time with SnagAjob. The site partners with scummy retailers who pull this “Rolling Admissions” BS.

    Know what it means? It means some HR guy is collecting piles of resumes, only to be “looked” at when the company is good and ready to hire…

    The site tries to match people with the BEST job both for the employer and employee. I’ve had a lot of success on it, gotta say I’m a fan.

    Sometimes it stinks to not get a position cause you either didn’t meet a requirement or the employer decides you aren’t a fit, but better to find out before you start working then late.

    The site is meant to connect you and possible jobs plus its free. I get a lot more SPAM from other sites

    SnagAJob is nothing but crap. I have had a part time job for over a year now and have been searching on snagajob + craigslist to find something better. SnagAJob has had the same dozen or so postings for over a year now in my area. I think they just grab a handful of business names and post fake openings for them. And like everyone else said you just get spam everyday and no interviews or call backs. They suck don’t even waste your time. Your better off checking Craigslist even though that sucks too

    .
    You have to be fervent on SnagAJob. I’ve gotten two jobs off of SnagAJob and I’ve spoken to two others that have gotten them too at Sears. My first job was for Marshalls ($8.25 an hr) in Illinois and one for Crossmark ($10.50 an hr) – and no, not pushing food samples.

    I was unemployed from June 2 – Nov 1, 2010 when I got my Marshalls job so that took me 5 months to get, but I got one.

    At the time, I was living at my uncles home, which went into foreclosure so I had to move to a relative’s home in Indiana on June 19, 2011.

    I went back on SnagAJob on June 20, 2011 and got my Crossmark job on August 23, 2011 so that only took two months, but I got one.

    I actually have a little under $2,000.00 in my checking account right now (after bills) where as on June 2, 2010, I had less than $10.00.

    So like I said, you have to be fervent.

    As far as the jobs not being available that are posted to SnagAJob – they can only do what it is they do. The reason the jobs are posted but not available is usually due to the fact that (say Kohls for instance) filled the job, which they do immediately (1 to 2 days) and did not update their jobs with SnagAJob and instead SnagAJob still has them on their site as available.

    SnagAJob is very legit, there’s really no question there, it just takes time. You’ll always be contending with hundreds of others who are applying for the same jobs.

    I sat at three different Kohls with more than two others there for the same job. How many others came in that same day before and after I was there, I don’t know. With jobs what they are, I imagine the interviews were numerous. Like I said, it’s hit and miss.

    If you really want to find yourself wasting your time, go to Career Builders. You’ll spend a lot of time typing and most likely never see a job come your way. I applied for hundreds of jobs and never got a single response between June 2, 2010 and November 1, 2010 when I finally got my job at Marshalls.

    The spam you’re getting is from outsiders (not SnagAJob). The spammers access your resumes on SnagAJob so that they can send you that email – be it trying to set you up in your own insurance office – ugh, or real spam where they’re trying to rip you off. It’s not SnagAJob doing that.

    If you want a job immediately and you cannot wait, simply go to all of the Walmarts in your area and sit at their computer in customer service and fill out their forms.

    Of course they only pay minimum wage but it’s something in the interim. Since they only pay minimum wage, they’re turnover is high so openings are not usually slim pickins.

    A job is a job, is a job when you need funds. Being around a lot of people (Walmart employees and customers) throughout the day, is the best opportunity you’ll ever have in discovering where you can get a better job that pays more in your area.

I only want employers that I applied access to my information, not the University of Phoenix or other ‘trade’ schools. The fact that SnagAJob allows this to happen makes them just a culpable as the host of scammers, fake employers and other ‘bots infesting this site.

    I spent days filling out close to a dozen job applications for local jobs posted as firing in my area. Most took between 45 min. to 2 hours!!! A few days later I spent two whole days driving around from job application site to job application site doing a follow up visit. NONE of the companies Snagajob listed as having these opening had ANY of these job openings!!!

    Now I am still on their email alert for jobs in my area. I get multiple job listings from them and everyday they send me companies names with a job title of HOLIDAY HELP 2011…it is JANUARY 16th 2012 no company is looking for HOLIDAY HELP now! I will be pulling my email from their contact list.

    I have sent Snagajob two emails to date about the false job listings. They have not responded in any.

    If you are a company or someone looking for a job don’t waist your time with Snagajob. Maybe they do have current job listings but I would be lost in all of the outdated job listings. I may be job less at this time but I still value my time. Companies thinking of using Snagajob should look for someplace with better quality control before handing over their advertising money to Snagajob.

    Oh yes I to must have missed one of the education via internet ads. They look like you are filling out a job application and you can miss it and accidentally give them your contact info and then you get flooded with calls…they used up all of my months phone minutes in under a week! But that was my fault for not keeping a better eye out or not deleting my info before I got out of that page.

    I have tried many different formats for sending my resume and they all turn into a big mess on Snagajob. Maybe when they are sent to the possible employer they are morphed back into a nice looking resume…

    I dunno if this one’s a scam or not, but I must say that I had once automated job offers with this site for retail opportunities a year ago. There was a time when I did apply to just one opportunity for part-time job at a Levis Flagship store thru Snagajob.

    I clearly remember that I only submitted my name and contact details when I was directed to Levis’ application site, which was like the first portions to it. I actually didn’t continue on my application since I was busy with my primary job.

    Unexpectedly, I got a call back 9:00pm PST on a Friday( several days when I started an application) from Levis to schedule for a job interview on Monday, 4pm. Due to the short notice and ahead-of-time appointments, I had to cancel that offer.

    I did double check the phone numbers and they where legit from Levis.

    Overall, I would say that this site is legit under certain circumstances, that I got a call back for a job interview. Though I did find it peculiar that I hadn’t finish my application, not even a quarter of it, and got a call back for a job interview.

I had a specific job that I wanted to apply for there but the website repeatedly tried to scam me by basically using CSRF to get me to give my information to other scammy websites. Barely 3 hours after I was on the site I started getting phone calls from scams on the snagajob sites.

    IMPORTANT: Once you create even a little bit of a profile on Snagajob it is impossible to remove your information from their website and you will never be able to remove yourself from their email spam lists.

    I’ve been with SnagAJob.com for about several years now. During those years, I have only received about 3-4 job from them. However many of those jobs that called me back where out of distance range. This means that I have to take the metra train just to work at Family dollar or McDonald just to spend extra money for the tickets, bus and other transportation to that job. And that is from Chicago, IL to Springfield, IL.

    The jobs that is posted on Snagajob is real. However, now that I’m sitting at home filling out jobs applications, I’ve notice some jobs are opted people out of the application just because of the zip code. The jobs that I’ve filled out that is only five miles away from my home have opted me out of the job application just because of my zip code. They didn’t even get to see about my education, skills or even training I’ve received.

    What Snagajob have to do is tag out the companies that isn’t really hiring people and listed those that want the WHOLE applicant’s resume and online form.

    We are an employer says:

    We receive a ton of applications through our advertisement on Snag A Job, but barely 10% are completely filled out, or pass the 30 minute quiz that is a requirement prior to being selected for an interview.
    Of this 10% about 5% will show up for the interview. Of this 5% we may be able to come out of it with 1 hire.

    If you are really trying to get a job: Try filling out the ENTIRE application. Or using proper grammar, NOT TEXT MESSAGING. Also, try to fancy up the app a bit with better terms than “I was fired”, or McDonalds “laid me off” (we all know you mean they fired me). Make the application believable and if you are worth hiring you will be hired. If you continue to make yourself look bad then your parents will continue to be on your ass about why it is you can’t find a job. Find someone over 40 and have a conversation with them, you might learn something.

    As someone who usually puts much effort into all job applications, I found myself trying to skip personal information as I was filling out snagajob’s general “application.” I did this as it became apparent that everything I wrote down would be solicited to third parties and the SPAM that would follow.

    I was expecting to be redirected afterwards to the company’s actual website and job application, where I could write everything I wanted. But no.

    I would highly recommend employers find a different site to hire from. The ad blasts we receive when attempting to apply make it impossible for job seekers to apply as they normally would. I had to fill out information about Disney World in the middle of my application! There are many more reputable job sites out there and I for one will be using them instead.

    Many jobs are not active, legit, or cut applicants off because of their zip code. Bottom line is I don’t see why any employer would bother forcing applicants to go through this hell unless they are getting paid for it.

    I find that filling out generic past job forms when you have a nicely crafted resume to be very frustrating, because you can’t really talk about what your job was or what you did. Most of of us who are staying gainfully employed have a variety of skill sets that are not cookie cutter.

    When I attempt to submit my resume into their text area, it just turns into a single text blob that looks like rubbish, and makes me look bad. That’s bad coding on their part, and I don’t think its fair to blame the user of the site.

    I get interviews fast with my resume, when it isn’t trashed, based on that resume, if my skill set is in the ball park of the interviewing company. I just haven’t been able to relocate to the regions they needed me for so far.

    So, I agree with your complaints, but I think it is also unfair if snagajob’s site isn’t very friendly for submitting your resume.

When I call or go directly to the company, or go to their website, they say that they don’t have that job available, or that there are no jobs available. So where is snagajob coming up with these jobs????? It is a waste of your time.

    well,richard i went to a site very similar to snag a joke{haha} and applied online at one of their “featured companies” submitted resume blah blah blah…then i drove to the place to drop off a hard copy of my resume and the nice lady says”you can’t apply online we have never taken online applications”.I wonder how much time i have wasted filling out online apps that went nowhere?

    Scamalamadingdong. Advertisers will never stop calling. I am now getting 4-10 calls per day at all hours. Snag a job clearly sells all info to anyone regardless of set-up prefs. Worthless site too, 50% or more of “jobs” listed are not real jobs or are work-at-home scams or simple phishing attempts. Worthless site. Way more trouble than it was worth and useless in a job search.

    You do not have to sign up with snagajob.com to get a job through them. You can apply to the jobs without signing up and never put your phone number online for just about anything anymore. Simply use an email because the employers reply through email most of the time now.

My boyfriend and I just moved and have been putting in applications through SnagAJob for an entire month and neither of us has received one call back. Today I called one of the places that I had put in an application for & they told me that they didn’t know anything about my application and that they have been doing interviews for a couple of weeks!?!?! Thanks a lot SnagaJob. Maybe you should change your website to Snag an unemployment check or Snag yourself some welfare. That’s about all you’re snagging anyone. :(

    I signed up for what I thought was a one month deal. buried inthe paperwork was a notice that it continues untill I provide a notice to cancel. And no refunds period even if you only use part of the month. when I called to speak to an account exec, he told me too bad, so sad and wold not provide any refund despite the horrible service and only 1-2 responses per month. Here is the response I got from them:

    We wanted to confirm the cancellation of your job posting plan on Snagajob. We’re sorry to see you go!
    • Your plan was set to renew on 11/20/2011. Your cancellation will take effect on that date.
    • Your jobs will be removed from Snagajob on that date. If you’d like to take down your postings sooner, just sign in to your account and close those jobs.
    • Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for time remaining in a plan.

    When I first applied to snagajob, they never ask for my ssn. The website and any other job online site would ask the job seeker basic contact information, location, job experience and job skills. So whatever scam snagajob website that you’ve been on is a fake. The only place that you can used your ssn is when applying at the companies main kiosk websites or inside at the company main entrance.

    Always look at the address bar (Search)menu and you will see the company name and online application address on it.

    My wife is using the site to find local employment. She did get an interview set up after four days of using the site.

    Unfortunately, we now are getting 6-8 calls a day from companies selling everything from extended education to insurance to Department of Labor signs. Also, a couple of very strange calls I could only classify as pfishing calls since they hang up within seconds of you picking up. Taxing my caller ID to the max… Thank goodness for websites like whocallsme.com. I had to make her up a list of numbers not to pick up on. It’s getting tiring. I wish she would have stuck to Career Builder.
    My advice – stick to Monster and Career Builder. This site seems to have found a novel way to increase revenue – by selling your phone number.

    This web site is very legit. I have recieved calls from the applications I have placed through this websight however I have yet to get the job. I give it a three star rating for because as some have mentioned they do need to update the site more often. I give it a higher rating when it comes to listings though. It gives you listing of jobs that you do not typically find on higher end sites so it is a great way to find entry level and student jobs or if you’re desperate and just need a job. It could be improved in several areas but over all it is real the jobs are real. If you do not want to apply through the website it at least lets you know who is hiring in your area.

    Asking for a SSN is necessary for certain things, but no way I’d include it on an unsecure website.

    Even though you state they are legit, no one should ever ask for your social security number unless they have just hired you. So I would advise people to just get the names and addresses off their site and apply directly to them.

    I have been trying for two fields of jobs with Snagajob over the last 6 months and have not received anything yet, other than one from the 1 of perhaps 30 applications I have submitted, stating I wasn’t what Sears was looking for at this time.

    I like how the site works, but I am rather disappointed in having received not one call or interview at this time. I’m going to continue to use it. Perhaps it is the area, but I’m simply looking for an entry level job of any basic sort (a “McJob” if you will) or with my degree which is only an Associates, which of course isn’t great, but I can’t afford to do more with education at this time. It’s simply a burden. If I had that McJob, I’d go for it! I can’t put more into paying off loans!

    Anyway, give it a chance. I have decided to grab some old-school paper applications and try that way. I have a feeling more small town employers like that authentic feel than checking some sort of an account and reading through digital copies.

    It’s not a scam. There are tons of people that have gotten jobs from this site. When you sign up and create a profile, it asks if you want to further your education and to fill out your info to be called. You probably just didn’t read it right. When you apply and go through the questions, make sure your spelling and your punctuation is decent. I’m sure you’ll find one this way. Good luck.

I didn’t actually get to answer it, but I googled the number since it was out of state and it’s a spammer that calls trying to get you to either send him a check or give out personal info.

    I used to have snagajob send me e-mails – nothing ever happened. I am looking for a job again, and I checked it out on BBB. They are not accredited (which is not necessary), but it had some VERY bad reports. If you are checking this company out, BE CAREFUL! It may be legit, but I would be very wary about giving out personal info. There are many other reputable companies you can sign up with and you are not required to give out personal info until the actual job interview. I am staying with companies not requiring such personal info (i.e., indeed, simply hired, etc.). Before you sign up with ANYONE

    Snagajob works in such a way that the employer is the one putting their information on the site. They put certain expectations and flag for certain things. You may be too qualified. Sounds ridiculous, I know, but a lot of companies (cough*target*cough) would rather hire people without college degrees because the likelihood they will leave for another job in much lower.

They aren’t just some random website. They have 400 employees. They have over 3,000 customers.

    Hello all! Snagajob is one of the very best resources I have ever used to get the best fit employees. Yes, they do call asking to just LEARN about your hiring process and to SEE if this program they now have for you brand (you should be grateful for this very reason) would be beneficial. According to some very nice sales representatives from the site, they have a really great background in the hourly employment industry and work with corporate partnership with big brands such as Chic-Fil-A and Pizza Hut. The company culture seems fantastic and they really explain their offerings in great detail. After signing up with SAJ, i’ve received some of the best applicants I have ever come across.

    In addition, please remember that by calling you and being persistent, they are still just trying to help. According to one employee, the way their system works, they are given some basic information and they have to schedule their calls accordingly, just politely tell them to reach back out in a few months and they will comply.

    I encourage any successful business owner with the desire to build their employee team with highly skilled, competent works, to use SAJ. Though there is a cost, this program essentially pays for itself over and over again. Thank you! Rock on SAJ!

    Every time I try to apply for a job yes the pop ups come up and I am thankful due to I had already blocked my number from soliciters but a few got through the cracks so every time I got the call for education I blocked it, so I havent received anymore education calls. But that’s not what i’m upset about. Its the application for snag a job.

    You have to put in your SSI resume then I was under the impression that they would transfer the info to jobs but NOT. You also have to fill out the employers application and the beginning you have to put in your SSI. This is way too much info to have to keep putting your info out there for scammers to steal your idenity. It should be illegal to have to apply to a job online with personal info. The only time the SSI should be on an application is when you get the face to face interview. Who knows how many people have access to the work computer to steal their info? ALWAYS CALL EQUAFAX TO BLOCK YOUR SSI BEFORE PUTTING YOUR SSI, DRIVERS LIC, ECT OUT THERE ITS GOOD FOR 3 MONTHS BUT ITS WORTH IT AND THEY INFORM ALL CREDIT FRAUD COMPANYS AND ITS FREE

    what ever happened to face to face interviews? The only way im going to get a job is by printable applications until they stop having you put in your personal information out there

    I am an independent recruiter owner/operator of a small business seeking sales reps (entry level through experienced). I posted a job listing and I received 1 response from someone who was employed who was just checking the waters and not seriously seeking a position.

    Here’s the kicker, Snag a Job calls a few weeks later and claims someone else from my company opened an account with them. I explained I was a “company” of 2 people – myself and an admin person assuring them we did not open a second account. Snag A Job could not tell me who was allegedly using my company name because it was “confidential” and kept asking for a credit card to pay $500 to keep my account open.

    Sounds like a scam to entrap small business owners and create a sense of panic to increase revenues. In my opinion a business owner is better off spending the same money on a more reputable search engine line CareerBuilder, Monster, or Linked In.

    So job seekers, any legitimate business folks are not going to have the time to play the Snag A Job Game and will not invest money into listing on a job board that does not produce viable results.

    I disrespect snagajob and tell everybody that I know to not use them. I had to apply for a job through snagajob and start getting calls from 800 numbers and because I was not answering it they used my local number to call twice a day and even on Saturdays they call me and I ask them not to call but they do not care. I think they use call centers in India and get super aggressive Indian man leaving long messages. I have prepaid phone and have to pay to listen to their messages. They do not stop calling me. How awful is that? I will not buy anything from people who stole my number

    There is an option to delete your profile if you happen to get caught up in this scam. Though I’ve requested mine to be taken off, they have seemingly ignored the request. I finally got my number taken off the continuing education list, and was called by yet another caller who leaves no message and calls multiple times with a different area code…it never ends. DO NOT USE snagajob.

    I signed my husband up on Snagajob and he completed several applications. He got a call one day from someone saying “hey Joe, I’d like to set up an interview with you tomorrow at 2pm”. My husband was driving on the freeway at the time the girl called so he told her to text him the info. She didn’t text him the company name, just the address. So we looked up the address and come to find out it was a scam tactic run by Primerica trying to get my husband to come in and pull the ole pyramid scam thing on him. He text her back and said thanks but no thanks and she STILL tried to convince him that it was a legit interview. So beware! I’m now convinced she got his contact info from snagajob.

    I am part of a legitimate restaurant franchise using snagajob.com to hire hourly employees. For this purpose, it is very effective. I receive far more qualified applicants via snagajob than say a posting on Craigslist. Yes, there are a lot of surplus opportunities to sign up for on snagajob which becomes a bit of a nuisance to applicants. However you can simply hit the skip button at the bottom of these ads and continue on with the application. Ulitmately, it’s all about getting a job. We have hired many people from this service, so don’t worry about using it if that is what your intentions are.

    Hitting skip usually just kicked me out of the process. Thanks for the backhanded help, though.

    The system doesn’t generate a unique user profile URL identifier which means it isn’t set up to disperse your data. Instead it is designed to LOOK LIKE it’s set up to disburse your data but in fact is all about getting you to read the ads that pop up in between every action. This took me about an hour to figure out. An of my life wasted. What’s more I got to the snagajob site by responding to a Craig’s list ad for a writing job. Which I believe in and of itself was a scam to get me to spend some quality time on this fraud of a job seeker site.

    The whole operation stinks, is taking advantage of our desperate economy and the unemployed jumping through whatever new media hoops in order to get a bite on our lines.

    Shameful. Terribly so.

    NOTICE- SNAG A JOB IS A FAKE AND FRAUD! Buyer beware! Once you post a resume your information will be sold to telemarketers, and you will be called day and night. Snagajob will receive a big surprise soon from me after all the details are worked out. It’s called a lawsuit. So just keep on doing what your doing you morons

    This website really needs to update the offers they show. I called several jobs to ask and see if they were hiring and that I got the information from snagajob and they had no idea what I was talking about and were in fact, NOT hiring.

    I have applied to dozens of jobs over the past year and I have not been called once from either snag a job or a position I applied for. They send me an e-mail a day showcasing job opportunities but not one of them has gone through. I’m unsure if Snag a job even sends my application to the the employer. Best to apply the old fashioned way.

    I hate having to apply on-line for a job. So many places say they hire through snag a job. The only responses I get are calls from university of phoenix wanting me to further my education or unable to finish an application or told when I make an appearance at a business that they are not hiring now. I’m so sick of all the bull one has to go through to try to find a job. I’ve pretty much quit looking. Seems such a waste of time for me and every one I talk to in the process. What is this country coming to? All I want is a simple job in the restaurant business or retail. Why is that so hard to do? Way too many places telling one how to do a resume etc. What is the big deal about even having a resume? Or is it all about government control and places and people getting ones private information?

    I think they need to update their offerings more often. I just called on one that had at least 3 job postings. The manager said they do not have any openings at this time. Also, it claims that most Starbucks in our area are hiring. I find that very hard to believe so I called one. The manager said “they are accepting applications.” That didn’t exactly answer my question.

    Snagajob also sells your information to telemarketers. I filled out a few applications on the site, and I ended up getting calls from a company called Career Advisor. They would call non-stop! Be careful about the info you post on there.
