I signed up for CareerBuilder over a decade ago to search for a new job, with no success. O well. Not my complaint. All of a sudden after ten years they are giving out my info to anybody and everybody. Not even from related fields. If you are paying them for candidate referrals you are being scammed!
I run a new small business here in Denver and bought a package, the sales team reached out and sold me a better deal - 10 posting slots monthly for $510 as a one year contract. The posting yielded no good candidates, the resume database - no good candidates to be found. To this day and thousands of dollars later I have yet to interview a decent candidate that is relevant.
I called to cancel the service, had to spend $30 to send them a certified message in the mail. They responded saying "GOT YOU" for our contract, and denied the cancellation of their service. No concern whatsoever that we are canceling, or why we are canceling, their only response was request denied - you are under contract.
Career Builder sells contracts, not postings that would lead to good candidates. Run, don't walk! I run a recruitment firm, and we don't often place a candidate who applies, but usually a platform like this is a good place to mine data, look for candidates, and then network with them to find the best people who we could help place. Career Builder, after multiple complaints to this day has yet to reach out and attempt to help, or address the issue that their postings don't work. They only send me letters stating I have invoices due, and notices that my account is on hold. What a sham of a company, they used to be great....times do change however!
We are a small business and purchased a job posting for a sales management position for $219. After a week we only had 2 applicants, neither of whom were qualified for the position. We had the same posting up on other sites and received dozens of applicants. I called and told them I wanted to cancel and request a refund. They cancelled so the post would not renew and forwarded the refund request to a manager, saying she would get back to me.
Almost a month later I had heard nothing, so I called back. The rep on the phone didn't seem to find any notes in the record about the refund request and said she would email that person again. I requested to speak with them instead so I didn't have to call back again. She came back a minute later and said the request was denied. I asked to still speak with that person, she said there's no need since it was denied. They simply don't give refunds because the results of the product are not guaranteed. I said I would still like to speak to a supervisor. She said "sure" in an exasperated tone and I was put on hold. Within 30 seconds I was disconnected! Hard to believe that they treat their customers this way! I might have given them another try on another job posting had they handled this appropriately. Instead I will never use them again and I will spread the word far and wide that they don't seem to care about their customers!
We purchased the ability to post job postings for a fixed cost per month. We have tried to access the site and post a job with zero success. Emailed the salesperson and was directed to their offshore support. We called and was directed to their offshore support. Their offshore support was pathetic. AVOID using this platform to post a job. Indeed is expensive, but they are responsive.
NO STARS!!! I turned in my information for a background check, and I and the company I will be employed by, have been waiting a week. This is unacceptable and ridiculous. I've been on hold for close to 30 minutes to inquire about the status of this. I called yesterday and left a message, and to keep my place in the "queue", and I did NOT receive a callback. So here I sit on hold 35 minutes later, because I know they will NOT call back obviously. Due to their delay, they are holding up my start date and I am losing money because of this. It's not hard to make a few phone calls to check my previous employment, run my criminal history, etc. Might have to contact an attorney. So annoyed right now!! Employers should NOT use this company!!!!

DON'T SIGN UP IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY. I had to make an account here to apply to a certain job that I wanted. What a mistake that was, and not because the application didn't work out. I get sooo many scammer emails now referencing my "application on a CareerBuilder.com". They let scammers get access to the emails of (probably) all the users, and now my email will forever be on the hitlists of scammers worldwide.
I don't even have a phone number posted anywhere in my account yet I keep getting phone calls and text messages from recruiters who state they have seen my resume on CareerBuilder. What the heck? I read all of these complaints everywhere about the phone calls and email scams but CareerBuilder has yet to fix the issues. They are a scam and if you were smart you would not create an account with these people. There has to be some way to report this crap.
Application for a job posting for a particular job initially was responded by CB with over 4 dozen job offers none of which were the one I was responding to. However, after consider pause >15 minutes all of a sudden get email confirmation my application was accepted by the company posting for a job opening. Belatedly, I with draw my earlier complaint.
CB advertises for a particular job and before you are allowed to proceed you must download your resume. Surprise, following the prompts after the gatekeepers step, you are presented with several dozen jobs listings. None of which are the one originally posted to attract you. Numerous suggestions pop up either to enhance your resume or others, all asking of course for a fee. At this point I and all who are faced with this choice hit the EXIT button. Unbelievable this outfit stays in biz.
This website is full of scam job postings-beware. Bogus jobs can pop up anywhere on ANY website but they are definitely rampant on Careerbuilder -->they just want to get your personal info and so tell you they're "interested"/encourage you to apply, etc.
I uploaded my resume and then provided all the required information. When I saw how it looks finally or the profile preview all the information provided has gone. I did it 4 times, all 4 times data or information I provided has been erased. I wasted 2 hours just I the hope to upload my profile and to look for opportunities, it's a complete waste of time. Please stay away and save your time and energy. Finally I deleted my account. Never ever I will visit CareerBuilder????
