I had just moved to a new state and couldn't find a job. I went on Job.com for some help finding anything in the area but I didn't find anything through them either. Instead, I got phone calls about schools (no jobs though) when I tried to tell the person on the phone I was not interested, I got constant rebutals on how "it will only take a couple minutes". When I would tell them I didn't have time they would just hang up on me! This is not a legit site, DO NOT USE IT!! The only way to get out of it is to make sure the person who calls you is with Job.com or linked to them, and tell them you would like to be removed from their list. Otherwise it is IMPOSSIBLE to get rid of them. PLEASE LET AS MANY PEOPLE YOU CAN KNOW ABOUT THIS SITE AND WHAT A SCAM IT IS!! I wish I had known better!
This is RIDICULOUS & a waste of time to fill out EVERYTHING to find out in the end that the website trys to...
I want to thank everyone here for making your complaints. Without reading your warnings, I may have proceeded with this scam. I found a wonderful job posting ad on Craigslist that was right up my alley. I was perfect for the job. I replied to the listing and received a response that the HR manager would like to see my resume and to click on the link of a trusted website. After it had re-driected several times, I became suspicious. It ended up on job.com where a pop-up chat operator pressed me to start registering.
I looked up review for this company and found all the warnings thanks to you fellow “people” out there. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me not get sucked into this mess. Once I asked them questions, they have not yet responded back to me...For any others out there, here is what my very realistic job ad and reply looked like...

Job.com some how got my e-mail address. I have no idea how. I received about 15 e-mails in about 3 hours on the first day and it has since got worse. I even e-mailed the contact address at the bottom of the e-mail with the title Please remove me from your mailing list. They e-mailed me back with a job acceptance offer. Idiots!!! I logged on this morning to find a further 70 e-mails received from them since friday. There should be laws against this kind of outrageous spamming.
I do not even know who they are?
Thanks for listening.

I signed up to find a job NOT to get phone calls from people telling me they received my email requesting they call me or emails from SCAM companies.
I tried to send an email to [protected]@mail7.job.com and it was bounced back to my inbox...because there is NO SUCH email address.
BE AWARE OF JOB.COM
I don't appreciate going online to what I thought was a legitimate employment search engine Job.com, and...
just phishing for infor since signing up i have gotten nothing but tele marking calls and when i asked one finally told me from this site
Job.com offers potential jobs however when you go to apply the application has a continous line of questioning offering future education opportunities, and focuses on your interest in furthering your education. It does not appear that there is actually any job opportunity, based on the line of questioning.
Job.com runs an affiliate program through CJ.com.
They pay .50 to $1 per lead that you send them through their website.
Now, what happens is this. They will accept about anyone into their Affiliate Program through CJ.com.
However when it gets close to pay day they will mark ALL of your leads as "Unqualified Leads" and not pay you for any of your commissions.
And, according to the CJ.com terms, their Advertiser (Job.com) can mark any leads they want as Unqualified Leads if they are in-fact Unqualified Leads.
However, they will mark ALL of your leads as Unqualifed Leads regardless if they are Unqualified or not. They won't do this to every publisher, as to not bring up suspicion with CJ.com however, chances are they will target you especially if you are a new publisher with them and do over $1, 000 a month in earnings like they got me for. If you bring it up with CJ.com and ask them to investigate, they will tell CJ that they have received hundreds of complaints against you and they will forward over "complaint documents" that they have cooked up to make you look like the guilty party. And CJ.com makes a lot more money by keeping them as an advertiser than they do by paying out their Publishers when a question comes up, so they will do nothing.
I started Googling around and apparently a lot of people are getting burned because of this Unqualified Lead business with them. So, it's not just me. It's a big scam operation that they are running over there, and CJ.com isn't being proactive about stopping them.
********Email me at "[protected]@gmail.com" if you want more info. I hope they Corporate steal from the poor a-holes get shut down for good and locked up behind bars fro stealing from small-time publishers like this.
********If anyone else has been scammed by Job.com please contact your local district attorney and insist that they look into this. You must file a police report in the home town of Job.com, which you can find via http://whois.domaintools.com/job.com ---- If nothing else works then have a lawyer subpoena CJ.com for Job.com records and file a lawsuit against CJ.com & Job.com for damages.
