Every applicant that I have received has either been fake, living in a different state or not qualified for the position. You can not cancel this service so before you are roped into a 12 month long contract consider using Indeed which by the way is far superior! Again do not sign any contract with them. You will be wasting your valuable time and money!

Just by looking at their filtering you clearly see they are catering to the employers to make job seekers work harder to find their ideal jobs.... Meaning less filters on purpose such as salary filter don't exist. Vast majority of listings don't list salary... Job seekers want the best job for the best dollar, employers want the best talent at the cheapest pay possible... Who pays the bills for Monster.com, employers... Their competitor Indeed is way better in my opinion even though they have a lot more scammy jobs listed.

    Monster.com is doing scam with common people. They sell your resume data to fake recruiting consultancy. And then after you will start getting calls for jobs. They will convince to pay registration fee then they will arrange a fake interview & they will select you and they will offer you good salary. The salary could be in lakhs or 5x or 10x salary from what you are currently getting now. They will make you feel so good that you will stop thinking about scam. Now their business start they will ask money on the name of medical, police verification & many more. Slowly slowly you will lose your thousands of money. Then they will ask you to wait and the wait will never end. And one they all phones are switched off. Happy Scam.... So don’t trust anyone, always visit office of the consultancy then pay for any service. Monster.com is fake scammer, don’t give your personal data.

    I purchased "Premium Services" from Monster.Com. I paid US$319 supposedly for resume writing and to highlight my resume in their website. Now, already a month has passed by and I never heard from them again. I called and emailed them a today and I was told I cannot get a refund. Please, please, please WATCH OUT for this company! they are a bunch of SCAMMERS!!! I hope companies who are using their services can read this and will stop doing business with them too! A good company don't want to be associated with SCAMMERS like Monster.Com.

    There are several types of scams in this world, but the biggest is always will be scamming people of money. The Monster.com is very much pro in doing that.

    What's monster.com:

    1. A job portal where an end user can upload his profile and apply for job and get calls from recruiters

    2. A database access for recruiters and hiring companies so that they can filter out their specific candidates profiles and calls for interviews

    These are two usually happens in every job portal But there's number 3 & 4

    3. Instead of giving database/our personal data access to hiring companies they SELL at high prices to banks, nbfc, brokers, real estate agents, freelancers, insurances, fake companies, spammers, fraudsters etc

    4. They ask money for profile upgrade or highlighting the job seeker profile or resume building etc they charge money and stops responding to candidates calls & emails

    Monster a spam website, majority of the job seekers don't pay attention to it.. If you upload your profile instead of getting calls from recruiters, you'll get calls from loans, credit cards, brokers, real estate, insurance etc. Few of them defraud of your money.. They clearly sell our data to other agencies, I approached an employee on LinkedIn and asked and he confirmed it too that they sell data to anyone even if it's spam or brokers or real estate, they don't care they just need money.

    If you don't trust me take a new number, upload it on the website as a jobseeker along with your resume, wait for 2 to 3 days you start getting fake calls, spam calls from banks, credit cards, personal loans, etc. I have experienced and tried deleting my profile, after one month of inactivity and uninstalling the app I still get calls and they say they got my number from monster.com. This is a data misuse, I don't know NAUKRI.com does this but this is not a safe place to upload your personal details. Forget about jobs.. you won't even have mental peace, you might lose money and time for fake job calls and interviews. Ask their employees. They'll tell the truth.

    I was called up a few times by a persistent sales consultant from India. However he was legitimate because he asked me to log in agree to his proposed services. They delivered on the resume writing and cover letter. To be honest, I didn’t find this service good enough to be paid for. But I was after a job. And they promised to get me recommended to companies after this. It never happened. I spent close to $500 with zero results. However, I did get some hits on my profile with the free service. I’ve noticed that mostly Indian companies use this website. So if you are based in India or are looking to be hired by an Indian company, this is a good website to go to. I have not received any solicitations from companies from other countries though. Overall, it’s ok to use the free service. But don’t pay for their resume writing or job prioritisation service. Not worth it at all.

    I am grateful to Monster.com, I look forward to the opportunities & making it huge with additional updates. Associates are very helpful. I have received an opportunity to be availing these again in the future.

    Monster has 2 platforms: Monster and Monster Plus. I tried their offer for a "Free" Job Posting. It is a nightmare trying to post a FREE job, but after a while I got it, BUT the posting was inactive. Supposedly it because they need to check out the company information. After 2 days I called them, then they told me that I had to sign up first and then post the job and this is why when they were researching my company information the job was not posted. I was told to post it again, which I did. After another day, the same thing happened. I called a 2nd time. The second agent just could not answer me straight if I have to pay for the job posting in order to post or if they have a "free" job posting available. If we must pay, just say so in plain English and cut the **. Terrible way to treat a potential customer.

    • Cover letter and resume help: Monster.com has numerous resources for job seekers who may need some help preparing documents. The Resume Resource Center has writing tips, sample resumes and even a service, Top Resume, that will craft a resume for paying customers.

    • Career advice: With pieces about interview preparation, salary negotiations and office etiquette, Monster.com’s Career Advice section has plenty of advice for job seekers at any stage of the employment process.

    • Monster Blog: The Monster Blog is a source of news for employers and potential employees focused on the employment process. It is regularly updated to keep its content topical and useful for consumers.
