CB is just terrible. It used to be much more on point back in the day. Most job listing don't seem real. You click to apply and are sent to apply on a different website, only for the website to be another place to register again for something else, not an actual job. Or the job just screams scammy. The most frustrating part for me is how the resume is uploaded. One job description is added to 3 lines once it is integrated in the CB site itself. I go in to try and fix it, I am all done making time consuming corrections to all my workplace descriptions and lo and behold the save button is grayed out so I can't click it to save. Such a waste of time and it saves and reverts back to the way it was and looking crazy. So annoyed. I am removing my profile completely. I'll stick to Indeed or Zip Recruiter, it's better on that side of town.

For the past 2 months almost on a daily basis I have been receiving email from CareerBuilder stating the jobs that I applied for on THEIR SITE is fake. Imagine applying for a job on a site you thought was trustworthy and later find out the job was fake and now your personal information is out there. Several times this has happened. Beware of CareerBuilder each time you apply for a job on this site you are at risk. They do not protect the candidate who use the site.

Put my resume on CareerBuilder and Monster, most of the time the search would take me to another site where it seemed nothing was legit. Ever since then I have received no less than 10 spam calls a day, so it is obvious my info was sold. I have to unsubscribe to all of the sites but feel they could and should do better to protect their database.

They steall your info and you have to jump through hoops to try and recover it. I hope I don't get it as bad as I've read here but so far I got the usual treatment from a company that tries to pass off responsibility after stealing your info. Do not use Careerbuilder.com.. They make you try and email all these company's here are just a few of the scammers I found that I will have no time to retrace my info you've been warned.

Pressed 1 to speak to a sales department since I knew they would pick up and sure in enough poor sales guy on the phone already tried to pass me off to "customer support (rolls eyes )". I asked to speak to his manager multiple times and he didn't want me to at first. They tried to hand me off to Client support but I'm not going to let them just walk away. It's my personal info out there. We know that loop whole so I asked to speak to a sales manager OMKAR who was friendly btw. I explained to him that I shouldn't have to track down my info and for only trying to apply for a job. He said he was going to take my info and open a ticket so I'll keep you posted if anything changes. Please do not use them if you get the chance.

I once thought Career Builder was a reputable site for job seekers but quickly found it is a breeding site for scammers. I have applied to well over 100 jobs on this platform and have had nothing but scammers bombard me with text messages, emails, etc. Not 1 legit job or business has contacted me from this site. I even sent a email to Career Builder with my concerns. I am convinced they do not verify employers or businesses who use their site. You will waste time, energy, and your sanity trying to find work through this platform. It is unfortunate that companies such as these aren't doing their due diligence in researching and providing job seekers with legit options.

Recently got laid off and thought I was doing the right thing by setting up an account with Career Builder. No sooner did I give them my contact details did the nightmare begin. I get roughly a dozen phone calls a day from Indians looking to recruit me for jobs I have no interest in. My email account has been turned upside down with the numerous amounts of emails received from them. In addition they have routinely violated my peace by repeatedly texting me throughout the day for similar jobs. I have asked them to stop and blocked them. They simply change emails or persons within the same company and the bombarding starts again.
Whoever owns this site needs to be held to account by the authorities as they are preying on people in their most vulnerable hour. Truly disgusting human beings. If you are in job search, Please! Please! DO NOT REGISTER ON CAREERBUILDER.COM. If you do you are in for a vicious and savage violation of your phone and email accounts.

I paid $443 to have a job posting done for one month. Many features with their system simply do not work. I attempted to "brand" my employment listing for several hours and could not make a relatively simple process work. The applicants which are supposed to be filtered had no relevant experience at all. I agreed to a 1-month deal that was month to month. I contacted them 1 week prior to the end of the month as an added security measure to stop any future charges being made, and yet they still charged my cc. I cannot reach them on the phone. When I look at my account the invoices are totally incorrect. It is as if they have no I.T. people working to debug their platform as it descends into ruin. So in the meantime they will take whatever money they can from the public and do not give a damn about the customer experience. This is an honest review of what my experience has been.

I have received nothing but scam job offers from this website. It is disgusting what people will do to get your personal information. If you're looking for a legitimate job, I would not use Career Builder. Nothing but **.

Once I signed up to Career Builder, I haven’t received non stop solicited calls. It won’t stop. Everyone calling has an ** accent, you can barely understand what they saying. These jobs are not legitimate and it’s all a scam. This is terrible.

Terrible experience. As soon as I signed up, literally hundreds of email for unrelated jobs all from people who had Indian names. Literally hundreds of emails, phone calls (multiples in a row from the same number) and texts. Bots. Do do it unless you like to be harassed for no reason. Complete and total garbage site.
