We can see that people are going to Google and typing "SnagAJob Scam." We gotta be honest - this really surprises us. We've been connecting people with great hourly jobs for 10 years now, and millions of people use our site every month. We want to make sure everyone understands exactly how we work and what we do. Here is the truth behind the top four myths about Snagajob.
Myth: Snagajob is a scam
Excuse us for a second. We need a minute to laugh at this one. We are not, nor have we ever been, a scam. We are dedicated to helping unemployed people in the United States find hourly jobs. That is our one and only purpose. Millions of people have found jobs through Snagajob, and many of them have written to tell us thanks. Take a look at our testimonials page.
There are over a hundred Snaggers (that's what we call people who work at Snagajob) hard at work in Glen Allen, Virginia doing their best to help you find a job.
Snagajob will never ask you for things like your credit card information, and we keep all information you give us private and safe. The information in your profile is only used to help find you a new job. That's it.
Myth: The jobs on Snagajob are fake
It can be frustrating to apply for jobs and not hear anything back. We understand some of you might start to wonder if the jobs you're applying for even exist. But the truth is that all of our jobs are real. Companies like CarMax, Starbucks, T-Mobile and Borders pay us to post their jobs online.
Some companies accept job applications even if they're not hiring at the moment; these are called evergreen job postings. Companies do this because they want to be prepared in case someone quits or is fired. That way they can hire someone like you quickly; after all, they already have your application on hand. Unfortunately, sometimes a store manager will tell you they're not hiring, even though their corporate headquarters has posted jobs for that location. We do our best to make sure that all current job postings match the positions that are currently accepting applications.
If you're having trouble getting interviews, here are four ways you can make your profile better.
Myth: Snagajob doesn't send out your applications
The economy is slowly getting better, but it's still a really tough job market. Hiring managers have told us that they're getting bombarded with applications. A cashier job that would have only received 10 applications three years ago is now getting 200. Those are some tough odds for job seekers like you.
This also means that right now hiring managers are so busy that they're just glancing at the applications they get. So if there are any typos or missing information, your application is getting thrown in the trash. It's up to you to make sure the application is worth reading. Once you successfully complete the employer screening questions, your application is sent directly to the hiring manager for that position.
Myth: Snagajob will spam you
We will send you email Job Alerts, our Job Seeker newsletter and special third party offers, but only if you've signed up for them. We will not send you spam of any kind, ever. If you ever decide you want to sign up for more emails, change which emails you get or stop receiving emails from us, then just log in to your profile and adjust your email settings. It's that easy.
