Account suddenly got blocked in error 1/5
By c. ku
I have been using this for 4 months now and had been great... but suddenly, like many of the previous reviews, my account also suddenly got blocked for no reasons. I sent a message to Indeed; the rep there helped me contact the Job Spotter Team, and a couple of hours later, the Indeed rep responded that this was done in error and a member from the Job Spotter Team would contact me via email to assist with the issue. Then, the Job Spotter Team emailed me with a generic response that my account violated the terms and conditions. I have the Indeed rep’s response in writing, yet Job Spotter team ignored. So I lost $75! For those of you still enjoy the app, just beware... I was once in your shoes thinking other reviewers who got blocked probably were not honest.... but now I realize Job Spotter blocked accounts in error and they ignored you...
Great opportunity, but need more support 4/5
This is a super easy way to earn points that are redeemed for Amazon credits. It’s as simple as taking two pictures and hitting submit.
My only issue or reason I can’t give five stars is because I’ve sent two messages through the “Contact Me” section of the app, and have yet to hear from the company.
Not as much fun as it used to be 1/5
About two years ago this was a fun easy way to get points to spend on Amazon. Now I constantly get “network error” messages, and the submissions won’t go through. I have lost a lot of points because I had to reinstall the app because of all those error messages. I have contacted the admins about it a few times and keep getting told they are aware of it and are working on it...
The app has been disappointing 1/5
Starting in July the point system is now joke only 5 point for most signs an 13 for ones that use to be worth 80 plus points. It is now not worth the time and effort for a few dollars.
Great app! 5/5
If you walk a lot, this app is like free money 🤟🏼
Love this App 5/5
Customer service is prompt and fair. This app is great and I find it fun to capture hiring signs. However, you will get a lot of “looks” from employees, business owners, and customers. So it’s not “easy money” and it’s not for everyone. There used to be a “verify” feature available on the app but they have unfortunately decided to remove it.
Also, this app expects honesty and professionalism from its users, if you try to weasel your way around...get out. You’re ruining for those of us who hard working people with integrity who depend on this app for a little extra cash.
be aware! 1/5
After probably a year using this app and going thru lot of issues trying to make some extra money, my account was blocked and they are holding the money I earned. After more than a week waiting for them to release the gif cards they gave me the ones with little money and hold 2 with $25 worth. Days after that the blokes my account and I can’t get my gift cards. I have probably $70-$80 (I don’t remember) but they are doing that with lot of user so seems like they do it just to keep the money and they still can use your submissions. So bad, so disappointed
App Camera Not Working 1/5
This app has been given me problems for days now. I reached out to support today. The camera within the app is not working and it happens on and off. I’ll take maybe take 3 listed job postings without incident but then it’ll stop working after that. Please assist!!!
I've recently become disappointed with this app 2/5
My photos seem to always show up with "Network Error" even after I try to resubmit them via wifi. I can't seem to get any of my submissions to go through over the last month or so.
I'm also a bit discouraged that the "verify" option has been removed. Maybe my app is just having problems? It would be great if someone could provide me some assistance.
Don’t bother using 1/5
App says first spotter of the day gets the points, but you still get 5 points.
Unless you make job spotting your full time job, you won’t make more than a buck.
Not worth the effort 1/5
What happened to jobspotter ? It used to work, and you used to get a reasonable number of points per submission. Now my history is filled with network errors and 5 cent submissions
Buggy App and a SCAM 1/5
The app sometimes doesn’t upload your submission. If you press retry to many times then they lock you out stating that there are too many SPAM submissions. I think this is a gimmick that they are using to not allowing you to cash out your wallet.
serious point reduction?? 2/5
I’ve been using this app for about a year. I’ve probably made about $200ish just by using the app casually. I loved getting signs in while also running around the neighborhood. With my rewards I was able to afford books for school and virtually anything I wanted. However, this new update completely eliminated my secondary source of income. I’m making around 5 cents per sign now? I understand that other people have submitted these signs but in the last update I would get 4x that. I don’t understand this massive point reduction. Once I cash out my currents savings I don’t see myself using this app anymore.
Good so far 4/5
The only bad thing I have is there needs to be a fix for the no network for the submission of pictures of hiring signs. Please fix then I will give 5 stars.
Job Spotter? Yup! 5/5
I love taking pictures in general, for the different types of jobs that I do. I am so happy, that I found out about this app, because it was an absolute no-brainer for me, in deciding whether or not to use it. This is a fun and rewarding app, and I highly recommended it!
No customer support 1/5
This app is a joke. They reject 80% of my entries as duplicates even though I never sent them before. I keep contacting their useless support center to no avail, I keep getting some ridiculous generic messages that don’t make any sense! This app is a total waste of time
Work for a bit but never gave me money 1/5
Seemed promising for a little bit and I got $42 in credit. Then out of nowhere a message saying I have too many spam responses and I was banned appeared. I was not give my money I have never committed
any of these false claims and I had l$42 and the app basically stole that from me because I never cash out. I had worked for months to get this $42. I had emailed Indeed and they told me I can get my account or my money back they didn’t say why and didn’t respond and further. I had over 1000 views on my job listings. I assume Indeed made money from work but now they don’t want to pay me for it.
Don’t download this app they just want you help for them and they when you start cashing out your money they ban you.
Good way to make a pile of dough 5/5
I’m having a good time collecting places with various signs. Help wanted Now Hiring Applications Accepted Position Available though
Not Everything gets approved & that’s a layer of frustration but it’s free money & it’s more Fun than not.
Okay app 3/5
It’s easy to make a small amount of money. I live in a very busy place & a lot of places are always hiring. However, you get a very small amount for chains, which I understand they’re chains but they’re hiring most of the time.
I’d give the app for or even 5 stars but it takes 2 weeks to process your gift card. WHAT? that’s insane. It takes seconds for me to get an e-gift card with my other apps. It’s ridiculous.
Do not join job spotter 1/5
I had started a job spotter account and had earned close to $300 dollars when all
of a sudden they shut down my account stating that my account was banned due to a violation of terms of service. But gave me no reason for the violation. Now all the time, energy, gas money I used in participating in job spotter has been wasted. This may happen to you as well with no warning. This app is a waste of time and money. Do not download.
Two key issues 3/5
1. Frequent “network error” when tying to submit, even with full cell service. Takes multiple attempts to submit once I have Wi-Fi again.
2. Amazon gift cards can take up to TWO WEEKS to redeem! That’s crazy!
No Longer Works. App Dead. 1/5
By Mister Andersen
Always had UI stupid design issues and sometimes submissions would take days to successfully upload before. But now they don’t ever upload even after weeks of trying everyday on various WiFi networks as well as over phone towers. So effectively this app is useless now. So save your time and forget it.
Fun and Frustrating 3/5
I’ve been using the app for a few months and really like it. I treat it like a game.
What I find INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING is that nine times out of 10 I get a “network error” message. It’s very rare that I’m able to take photos and submit. Right now I have five submissions that I took less than an hour ago and they won’t go through. I’ve been refreshing and nothing.
I’ve emailed a number of times and I understand that the developer is aware of the problem but it doesn’t seem clear that the issue is the highest priority for future updates.
It’s SO FRUSTRATING. I hope they fix this issue soon.
DONT DOWNLOAD 1/5
DONT DOWNLOAD THIS APP ITS A WASTE OF TIME. AFTER 3 DAYS OF USING THE APP THE ACCOUNT WILL GET BANNED AND EVERYTHING YOU DID WILL BE GONE.
Annoying “network error” 1/5
Walked around the blocks for an hour and gathered around 10 submissions. However, none of them went through due to “network error”. So I thought that maybe I’ll just find a good spot with WiFi and try again. Tried TWICE with two different WiFi and still nothing loaded!!! I know that it’s not the WiFi issue because it loaded my other apps perfectly. I decided to maybe update the app and see if it will fix the error but it just completely wiped out all of my submissions that I was waiting to send!! Felt like I completely wasted my time and efforts tonight. Hopefully they come up with a solution for whatever this network error is so others won’t have to lose all their hard work like I did.
Spam Submission? 1/5
It says too many spam submission from this account or device and i’ve stopped using this app for over a week but no solution. How come it happens? I submitted the pictures without any issue before but it just pops out then nothing i can do with the app.
No contact of developer, no options for me to do nothing regarding this problem.
I’ve been robbed 1/5
By indeed hater
My account was marked as spam even though I’ve done nothing wrong and have use the app for more than a year with no issues. The app also started to cause problems with my phone to completely shut down and be nonresponsive when trying to use different apps. I’m owed over $100 with no way to contact anybody. This is no way to run a business. Get out while your can. I’m going to file a class action suit against indeed.
I love it! 5/5
This app is so great! I walk around a lot anyway living in Brooklyn, so this gives me extra incentive to go to various areas and keep my eyes peeled. To me, it’s like being on a treasure hunt! You get the Amazon gift card within a day, typically. I just redeemed my first $50+ gift card code (I went through the whole process before deciding to write a review so I could give the honest scoop). There are plenty of places that post signs for jobs so just find them and submit. It’s easy to use and the criteria for an acceptable submission is simple to achieve. If you get one rejected and feel it was correct, there’s a way to appeal it and they respond pretty quickly. The only negative aspect came from this: I had to forward the email that was initially rejected via the app’s appeals submission feature, but it’s not that big of an issue. I highly recommend this as a fun side hustle and possibly even a way for parents to take their kids to various places and allow them to earn the gift cards.
Network errors etc 3/5
While I like the app, there are big negatives.... I get frequent “network errors” on submissions and never get credit for those ones. Also, you used to be able to get credit for verifying others’ posts, but that was eliminated. Also, it would be extremely helpful to have a zoom feature when taking the photos. So what could be a 5 star app has dropped to 3 stars
Great app 5/5
This app is great if you remember to use it. I also DoorDash for extra money so since I’m already out and about picking up orders I keep an eye out for hiring signs and just open the app snap a couple pictures hit submit then on my way it only takes a minute. I just cashed out my first amount of a little over $20.00!
Great App! 5/5
Please never get rid of this app, I love it!! I actually get excited to see a hiring sign and can snap a pic with my Job Spotter app.
Zero Stars 1/5
My account was also shut down and labeled as “spam” and I had over $200 that I had earned for the month which is now gone. I emailed to ask what is considered “spam” and can’t seem to get an answer, terrible customer service. Never got any kind of warning just logged in the other day to find my account shut down.
It good work but one problem is window on sign I’m sure no person it hard to get sign with see person
Would get zero stars if possible 1/5
Spent a lot of time loyalty using this app for almost a year taking pics finally accumulated $60 to redeem but my account was labeled as "spam" and deleted all my credit the entire app is a spam!! They use all the pictures you take without actually compensating you!! Don't waste your time!!!
Verify Feature 3/5
The verify feature has been replaced with a map! I loved being able to earn extra points verifying submissions!!! Bring it back!!!!
Love this app!! 5/5
It’s a great legit way to make money. 75 cents here and there but it really adds up!!
Pretty Neat 4/5
Can cash out for Amazon at any point which is nice but can take a while to get cash built up.
Bring back verifying 3/5
Its a great app, however the developer removed the ability to verify stuff. Was a great way for cash.
What happened to the Verify option?! 2/5
This app was really great when I initially found it and started using it. It still has a lot of issues such as submissions not loading up right away. Being able to verify was a nice incentive to continue to use the app more. It also made it more fun to kill some time when needed. Bring back the verify option please!
My account was SHUTDOWN????????? 1/5
Horrible!! My account was closed and I had to create a new one with the same email???? What happened? It was after some automatic update I think? I had over $60 pending in gift card and suddenly jobspotter logged my account out and I had to make a new account with the same email?! DO NOT use or trust this app. I have emailed and messaged job spotter support through different channels and NOTHING has happened. I did a lot of hard work and was a LOYAL customer for 4 years now bringing them good reviews and help wanted signs. What happened to my original account with the same email I had to create a new one with ??????? Please message me ASAP!
What’s the point of doing this if there is no more verify feature??
Great app for those who like doing little things to make easy money 5/5
By kayla newcome
I do several apps that I earn money on and job spotter is one of the best apps!! I have used it for a couple years on and off and have cashed out several times.
Signs for hire 1/5
I went out of my way to take pictures of Hiring Signs and the last 3 were rejected. Cashing Out...
Verify Submissions 2/5
By Jay R 562
What happened to verify submission? Also why do I have a bunch or errors still showing on my postings and won’t erase?
Why do I get less than others when I submit the location first???
verifying & difficult submissions 3/5
By j s wade
the app was ok until i most recently updated. we can’t verify other’s submissions anymore??? also it’s difficult to get my own submission to go through. like it won’t upload or something.
Job Reviews 4/5
This is a good app, I just wish that they would put the job reviews back up on the app. I feel like it could help with receiving correct job submission approval.
Customer Service 5/5
Though the app itself has a few issues and some submissions have been rejected for no reason, you guys have been on it when it comes to appeals, etc. You even explain in detail why some appeals don’t get approved and right away overturn ones that got rejected for the wrong reasons. This is why you’re getting a five star from me. Keep up the good work!
What happened to the verify button?? 1/5
Bring back the verify!! Used to be a great feature.
Please Bring back the verify feature!!!!! 4/5
The map is a neat addition, but hate that I can no longer verify signs. Please consider bringing it back. I can live without the map
