I use to use monster.com but found most of the job postings were fake, advertisements and not worth it. I applied for a few local jobs and the postings were incomplete and not to what the job specifications needed. Or I'd go into the interview and realize the interviewee was a total ass hole and ruder than rude. I filled out what I thought were a couple job postings but it turns out it was a click ad based ad. How low is monster.com getting to allow members to falsely give out personal information. I would not recommend this website to anyone job hunting.

I have a background in healthcare be only in medical records, insurance verification, I worked as a pharmacy tech assistant for a brief period as well. For the last 5 years, I have worked as a customer service representative for Health Insurance companies. Sending me jobs that I should apply for such as a doctor, pharmacist or medical director is just a waste of my time

Monster is absolutely the BEST job search site there is...hands down!!! Not only does it have millions of available jobs posted; it has in depth information on many companies, extremely helpful articles about ANYTHING job or job search related. Simply the best!

The "human" aspect for job searching is nonexistent in Monster.com. I have searched for "Senior Creative Designer" as a possible position and what I get on a daily basis is a bunch of malarkey! In the "possible jobs match" I get (as an entry level designer, you'll report to our senior staff which is a part of our creative team...) as seen from this example my job search criteria is NOT what I am looking for. Most of the times a job might come around to go and apply to it only to find out when I click the apply button I get a message that reads, "This job is no longer available."
There has to be a better way to weed out the search criteria and not waste my valuable time. Perhaps have the wanted job criteria ONLY search the posting title as a brief sentence as provided by the employer and not search the entire posting summary as I stated earlier in my example.

I am consistently sent notifications for jobs I am unqualified for, or jobs that are further away than the distance I specified. Not impressed, and I'm considering closing my Monster profile altogether.

I was contacted by Vignesh Kumar of Monster resume service offering Monster resume service with guarantee of 98% success rate of getting a job offer within 2 months. I signed up and paid more than USD600.00 for this service.
The journey started badly with their resume team constructing a cv for me which was poorly done and I had to practically helped them draft my own cv. And after waiting for more than 2 months, I have yet to receive queries from recruiters and companies.
I received no replies from the mails I sent to Vignesh and calls to his phone was unanswered.
Worst of all, I received another call from his team member Solomon Nayakker offering me the same Monster resume service with the same fees and with the same sale pitch.
It is shocking that Monster is scamming people like myself who has been out of employment and is with little money giving us false hopes about their service success. Worst of all, they played on our vulnerabilities and cheat us of our money.
My sincere advice to all job seekers, please do not fall prey to Monster's Resume service. I will never get back my hard earned money. But you don't have to be a victim like myself.

I apply for work in qualified for and get no response. I'm a college-educated person with 25 years of work experience in the best job market in 30 years. I should have multiple offers for work weekly. And nothing.

The only thing I've gotten out of monster is a non-stop flood of spam and scam emails. As soon as I signed up it started, just constant fishing links and fake offers, since apparently monster doesn't take Info privacy seriously at all. What's worse is that monster has the same job postings as any other site basically, so I pretty much just signed up for endless spam email and calls with no benefit. The only job offers I've gotten from monster are just call centers and insurance sales people who will take anyone with a pulse, and call any phone number they see to ask if you can commute 30 miles one way to cold call people for minimum wage for a couple hours a day. I can't believe I'm saying this but monster has managed to decrease my quality of life, the constant spam and essentially fake job offers are wearing me down mentally, constantly getting my hopes up only to find out that it's yet another fake email, or another 'shopper satisfaction survey' that I only started getting after signing up for monster, or maybe one of the non-stop emails from what are basically fake temp agencies, or maybe another offer for a totally free Amazon gift card that definitely doesn't have a malicious link in the email. I can't even block this junk, they keep changing email addresses and sending from different front companies! Worst job hunting site I've used hands down. I can find all the same postings on indeed, and there I rarely if ever got spam or borderline harassment through phone calls.

Occasionally useful for short term employment for low skilled friends. High level of tedium.

Monster provides really good information, trends, tips, and tools for people in their career transition. Your resume is a living document of your professional experience, so documenting and prioritizing your achievements, along with quantitative information in your resume should be on-going process, no matter where you are in your professional journey.

Review by Tunche Bhasker1 month ago
Every job alert I receive consists of jobs that are well outside of my desired commute and/or not related to fields I chose to search. I’ve tried repeatedly to correct this to no avail.
Otherwise, I do enjoy your wide range of articles on job searching and work life in general.
Review by MrNocturnal Latton2 months ago
No wonder I haven't heard anything about anyone still using Monster to find a reputable job. As soon as I uploaded my resume and took the time to identify the field in which I'm looking to work in, I immediately began getting responses from nothing but insurance sales jobs. Yesterday I received a call from a spammer. It seems to be nothing but spam coming from this job site and I will no longer look on this site. I'll stick to Indeed, LinkedIn, Glass Door and ZipRecruiter. This site is no longer any good as it was 10 years ago. It needs to be shut down, SPAM is all it is.

I received a call from Rahul Mehra (Madhya Pradesh) asking for 2500/- as they allot me some company and get the interview letter. All I said was politely that I am not finding the reviews safe so I am sorry I am not interested in it. And the person replied was "Never register or post on monster for job"
All I did was politely refuse or is it you cannot refuse to their offer. People should be trained enough to know people aren't always jobless or desperate in need of job. We just want a better career that's the reason we apply. Paying money or no is our personal concern. An agent should talk and act like an agent. It was too rude to even rate.

I wish that Monster could do more for me. Are there resources for older job seekers?
Review by Makris Gschwenter2 months ago
I think Monster.com has good, helpful ideas. I'm a 62-year-old female who shouldn't retire yet because I lack the funding to hand some distant "assisted living" corporation $5,000+/month at the end of my life. Haven't been able to land a job since 2017, or a better job since 2006. I think computers/internet sites like Indeed.com have been disastrous to a hands-on job seeker. I've wasted countless hours on job applications that went nowhere, because I didn't put in the right keyword, or whatever? *Temp jobs pay little and seem to be mostly owned by Int'l Corps like Robert Half.
Once a person has pegged themselves as over 40, the uphill battle is much steeper.

The job postings are pretty static for Southern CT.
Very few new sales opportunities in comparison to other sites.
Review by Jehonadab Coho2 months ago
The employers are missing out on a great work resource. SENIORS. When we reach a certain age, employers no longer want to hire us. I know I am still employable because I get lots of calls from recruiters, but the minute they hear what year I graduated from high school (that's their sneaky way of fiquering out how old you are since they can't ask) they just hang up. Their are a lot of advantages to hiring us (1) we don't need your insurance (2) we have wealth of knowledge (3) our schedules are flexible (4) We probably only want to work part time so a lot of things the companies pay for a full time employee we don't require etc. etc. etc.
