I applied for a job on Snagajob.com..The position was Marketing Coordinator for Uno's Pizzeria. After asking a few times about getting newsletters and marketing emails from them, and then would I be interested in the University of Phoenix..it says that the application process has been 'deactivated'. Then I get a confirmation email saying I applied. Yeah right! Then I go to Uno's just to see if there is such a job as Marketing Coordinator. Nope! What a shameful thing to do given the state of our economy, to use people's desire for a job as a means to execute non so subtle marketing.

We're sorry you had trouble with our application process. We investigated the issue and found an outdated link on our side. We have verified the information with Uno Chicago Grill and the application process is now fixed.
Please try again (for the job you're referring to, the application process must be completed in person). If you have any difficulties, just call our job seeker support staff at 1-877-461-7624.

Best of luck with your job search!

I have to agree with the complainant. Snagajob or some of its affiliates seem to be using some underhanded or less than ethical methods to get people to sign up on their site. I responded to a post on craigslist for a specific freelance writer's job. What I got in reply was a form email that I needed to go sign up at the site to apply for a job, with no mention of the job I had already applied for. It's just an attempt to get people to sign up thinking there's a job once they do. There was no real job being offered. This is a common scam often used by affiliate members of many sites to gain credit. Currently these same ads for this company are all over craigslist.
It might not have been so bad but I have tired to use their contact form a number of time to complain only to get a "technical error" message along with "Since you're here why not try searching for some great jobs in your area?" Just seems like they'll use any opportunity to take advantage of people. I finally decided to do a search to find out what others were saying and there are a lot of complaints out there right along with this one. If you're a legitimate business, then clean up your act!!

I too have applied for a job with Snagajob after responding to an ad on Craiglist. I'm not sure if it was a spammer or not, but I was hired (and I'm still working there now). I for one can say that I am pleased with their service.

I also have to agree with the complaints. I have clicked to apply for many jobs. Each time Ive completed an application I get to a page that says
"We appreciate your interest in XXX Sales Associate (Commissioned) position.

However, the employer is looking for candidates that are a better match. Your application has not been sent to the employer for consideration at this time.

Don't be discouraged! Continue to search SnagAJob.com's more than 100, 000 active job postings to find the job that's right for you."

Everything is filled out, my education, jobs, etc, and I get this message everywhere I click apply to. I will no longer attempt to use their site and will apply directly at the job openings workplace or website

I can understand the points you who are agreeing with the complaint make, however, I for one cannot say that this is a scam. Seven of my friends, and several for their friends, as well as I myself, have all applied for jobs on snagajob.com and all of us have been employed.

I have applied to over 50 jobs in my area that I more than qualify for. I mean come on, Who cant wash dishes. I have heard back from about ZERO companies I've applied too!!! What a joke!!!

As someone from the inside who is sick of their "we're the greatest place to work" chirade, I want to let the general public know that most of the jobs posted are not hiring. We tell business owners, national, major and franchise to post for all positions even if they aren't actively hiring because we want them to find the "next best candidate" or the superstar. You will apply for a lot of jobs and will not hear back from them...it is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Oh, and don't buy the CEO's book. If he can't hire and retain his employees how is he going to tell you to do so?

I applied for one of their listed jobs just a couple days ago and have already been contacted by the employer by phone for an interview!! I have been looking for work for almost a year have tried career network and monster job.com with absolutely no luck!! so for now I give snagajob two thumps up.

I have been using the snag a job website for about six months now and have had nothing but more spam. I have heard nothing from any employers through this website and I am disgusted by what I am reading here. I think this website is a ripoff. Another one to watch out for is careersearch. com. I have a bad felling about them too.

Thanks for wasting my time.

Every time I apply for a job through SnagAJob.com, I seem to get a sudden increase in telemarketing phone calls. It is probably likely that they sell are personal information.

I got to snagajob thru Atlanta Journal Constitution / Ads by Yahoo. After several fradulant/scam "offers" there were NO jobs that were included in the original search which the site claimed to be over 1, 000 in my area. Using the internet to defraud should come under wire fraud. I wish someone had the time to use Title 18, United States Code, Section 1343 to close them down along with those who enable them (AJC / Yahoo)

We want every user of SnagAJob.com to have a positive experience. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

The job market is tough right now. We hear from quite a few job seekers who are frustrated because they have great qualifications and still haven't found a job. Make sure your profile is as complete as possible and highlights all your skills. Cast a wide net and keep applying.

When you're applying to jobs on SnagAJob.com, read the job descriptions carefully. If the employer says they require 2 years of retail experience, or that employees must be at least 21, your application will not be considered if you don't meet those requirements.

You can always log on and change your email preferences. If you don't like receiving email Job Alerts or other emails, all you have to do is unsubscribe.

We partner with several other sites who direct traffic to SnagAJob.com, but these sites and partners should always represent our jobs accurately! If you come across a strange link to SnagAJob.com on craigslist or anywhere else, please let us know about it. And for any other questions, always feel free to contact us:

Our Seeker Support Team will do their best to help.

i can see where people feel like this is a scam but im not convinced.i have applied to many jobs on here and may not of gotten any callbacks, but i have never goten an response to my app saying im not good enough for consideration every job ap i have doen has been accepted. i havent goten an increase in telemarketing calls or spam email either. if anything i say that snag a job.com if anything is good to reference to how the job searching is guna go a far as to the flow of hiring and job openings. i prefer it over my local paper who seems to post the same jobs in the paper and online when the people arent hiring.

I recently started a application through snagajob for Kmart, when it went through several pages and supposedly went to Kmart website, the URL did not match with Kmart, and the page supposedly from Kmart asked for your SS number leary of giving this even though it was hidden when you type it in I passed and went back several pages and it said that I allready applied to this position wich I did not, another one was with MurphysUSA and it asked for your SS number and it was not hidden once you started typing it in, for now on I am either going to apply directly at employers website or in person, I am not going to take the chance for Idenity theft, the rule is never give your SS number onl;ine even if the website looks legitimate, to much scams out there.

Snag a job is advertising current openings at a Kmart that has closed. This is why I think Snagajob is just making it up.

I watched my bosses go online and actually search snag a job for prospective employees on a few occasions. (Aaron Brothers) In fact, that's how they found me. However I will say that it took a whole month, and it was the only snag a job responce I got after filling about 20 apps. I think the service is a mixed bag, some scams, some legit offers.

Aaron brothers hired me through snag a job. I also watched my bosses use the service to find other hires. There are scams on the internet, but there'e also legit stuff. snag a job id no different.

I recieved a notification that an interview for a Macy's Retail Sales Associate was available upon scheduling. After arriving at the location and going to the Central Offices for my expected and scheduled interview, all was tainted by the notification that SnagaJob has been sending excess of applicants to the location without prior knowledge of the company. In the end, I had to apply again and now I'm in the process of waiting for another callback for an interview. What a waste of time!
