I wish I had checked out the reviews for this company before signing up with them. I essentially paid $400 for nothing. Supposedly, they post your job on over 2500 job boards. However, there is no way to prove they actually do this. Also, they "generously" match resumes to your search. However, they don't allow you to search their resume database. Maaaaybe it's because they don't actually have very many. I had only FIVE resumes matched to my job post. When I said it was unsatisfactory and wanted my money back, he simply offered a free nation-wide "blast". My client isn't willing to pay for travel and relocation of a candidate, so that doesn't help me! He then said he would speak with the General Manager and/or CEO about my concern and call me back. He didn't. I had to follow up... again. He then blew me off and said they would offer... wait for it... a free nation-wide "blast". I'm like... I already told you that's not going to cut it. I want my money back. This is a scam. He said he would speak with them again and get back to me. NOTHING. BIRDS ARE CHIRPING OVER HERE. So... I called back. No one answered - despite it being within their normal business hours. I left a message. No one called me back... again. I just called AGAIN. Guess what? No answer AGAIN. Interestingly enough, the ability to leave a Google review on the company has been removed, as well. How clever.... DO NOT FALL PREY TO HVACAGENT.COM!

We contracted with HVAC Agent a few weeks ago, and we are not happy with the service provided thus far.
Out of 12 leads only 4 meet our criteria, and leads have not been updated in almost 20 days.
Tried to contact Customer service and Sales, and message is they are closed. Have also emailed and giving them 24 hrs to respond before we take action.

$399 paid and we received no viable candidates. All the candidates were from old sources and even after immediately attempting to contact them the leads were almost always wrong numbers. We contacted HVAC Agent but it took them several weeks to return our calls. Over several months We complained to HVAC Agent, then they promised to give us free 30 days for October 2018. Now they have stopped returning our calls.

It has been three weeks since I posted our job and I have received 7 candidates. They are all either too far out of our area or are not actually looking for work. With all of the recruiting HVAC Agent says they are doing, I am incredibly disappointed in the service. They say that they are "evaluating" job seekers. However, it is nothing more than an algorithm in their system to match people to your posting. I found that every single one of the candidates that I *did* receive do not even almost match what we are looking for in a technician. Their preferred job markets and their experience backgrounds were so far off that I can't imagine why they were being matched to my profile.
Craigslist is a fraction of the cost. I don't see the benefit of this service and I will never use them again. The amount of money I spent absolutely does not justify the "job" they say that are doing.
And please do not respond with your boilerplate response that I have read over and over again. I have no interest in contacting you.

Run away from this job posting service. Total crap.
Review by Besh1 year ago
I want to say some really bad things but I will keep it clean. I paid for my first credit, never got one response from it, EVER. Got two candidates in 30 days that I actually had a conversation with. One interview and the candidate wasn't even in this trade for the most part.
The reason why I am so upset is because it wasted my time that I don't have to waste! Chasing nothing for 30 days? SIgn me up!
Why sell a product that you know isn't going to produce for your customers. Be up front with them and let them know that the simple credit will waste your time. I wanted real advice, not some chuckle head wanting to make a dollar.
I am an operations manager for a small heating company in Washington State. When I do make sales calls, I let the customer know up front if what they are asking for will work for their situation, or not, no matter what the cost!
You mean to tell me with over 2000 sites that you post to, you can only get me two new candidates in 30 days and a total of 24-25 that go back several months to make it look good? Really poor performance!

Website is bad, difficult to use.
Candidates are few and far between, no ability to download or email resumes. Over priced for the product that I received.
Review by Morandi Derrow1 year ago
There are no candidates, however I still get 1 billion emails a day. It is like volunteering to get spammed
Review by Speyson Fergenson1 year ago
not enough applicants
Review by MrGrace Limpl1 year ago
too expensive for what little service or real resumes. Would not recommend.
Review by RacheC1 year ago
Website is hard to navigate, hard to tell what type of position candidates are searching for, many candidates are no longer actively searching. Seems like a waste of time and money.
Review by Bafford1 year ago
We are not able to search candidates. Or look at ones picked out for us, it's a very small batch that was sent for the money spent.
Review by Paighton1 year ago
NO APPLICANTS EXCEPT FROM OTHER INDUSTRIES AND TOO FAR AWAY
Review by Altreche1 year ago
No one has returned any of my attempt to contact.
Review by Cirillla1 year ago
I found the service to be lacking quality candidates. It could have been the geographic location (mid-north Ohio), but there were a large number of irrelevant profiles presented as "potential matches". I gave two stars instead of one because all the people I met working for the company are professional & polite.
Review by Calind1 year ago
Good source of candidates but most are old, recycled postings that waste time and annoy both parties.
Review by Derrve1 year ago
The number of acceptable candidates resulting from both a 2-month posting and an email "blast" for job positing was absolutely dismal. I would not recommend HVAC Agent to anyone seriously looking to hire an employ. Total waste of time and money.
Review by Oduntan Boriko1 year ago
POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE NO IDEA WHAT WE ARE PAYING FOR!! WITH ALL THE ADVERTISING THAT HVAC AGENT DOES CLAIMING TO FIND CONTRACTORS QUALIFIED CANDIDATES, WE HAVE RECEIVED 0 LEADS AND 0 CORRESPONDENCES ACKNOWLEDGING THEY ARE EVEN TRYING TO GET US ANY CANDIDATES TO HIRE. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HVAC AGENT!!!
Review by Msaortega Levonius1 year ago
Suspicious and/or poor quality candidate profiles, poor filtering options and a general lack of usefulness. Spendy for what little we got out of it. We had better luck with Craigslist.
Review by Chavah Jarbo1 year ago
Although we thought we'd receive viable and interested candidates by advertising on HVAC Agent, most of the candidates either didn't return our phone calls or didn't have any interest in finding a new position. It seemed that the data base was somewhat dated. We were never able to find somebody using HVAC Agent after many months of trying.
Review by Wingon2 years ago
I paid $500 For 2 campaigns. I was told by the rep that he had "several" candidates and if I bought a campaign, I would receive resumes immediately. I received ZERO - ZERO resumes.
HVACAgent is a scam. I tell everyone in our industry to avoid using.
Review by Jhong Territ2 years ago
No real candidates
Review by Corporates2 years ago
I have used HVAC agent several times but now it is quite ineffective. I keep getting the same candidates from over 2 years. The company does a poor job of weeding out candidates that have found jobs a long time ago. they do not follow up to see if the candidates have found employment. I understand that candidates are always looking but to get the same 13 candidates no matter what posing I do is not good. After this term runs out I will not be posting on this site again.
Review by Myah2 years ago
I was billed twice because sign up and confirmation was vag and cumbersome. Have found zero candidates. No alerts and no correspondence
Review by Phanindra2 years ago
most of the people the were listed were people that we already turned down and we only got 33 resumes.
