Looking for a job 5/5

Can 15 year olds find a job to work at over the summer?
Okay I never wrote a review before but Iām getting so annoyed with the spam mails Iām getting. Literally 10same messages at once and they just keep coming after deleting the app. I tried to press unsubscribe button and it doesnāt work. Thinking itās my phone I let it be until I just got 30 more emails. I click unsubscribe and nope, press it and click open link, nope nothing. So I try to click on reply button on the annoying spam message and wow, it works! Iām so annoyed. Please stop
No bueno 1/5
I can't write my phone number. 2/5
Hello, I couldnāt even try the app just because it wonāt let me put my number. And itās not because an error happened, or something like that. Iām Argentinian, and my way or idk of writing the number is different of how the app wants me to write it. I donāt know how to do it, but please help me in this. Thank you, I hope I can try the app!
Love it 5/5
So far, so good! 5/5
I'm loving this app already! I've gotten so many responses.
Merlin excelente 5/5
Necesito trabajar urgente
Itās giving me a hard time?!?! 2/5
I didnāt have trouble logging in lastnight. but I woke this morning trying to check the notifications I got and it wouldnāt let me open the app so i reinstalled the app and now its not letting me log in ??? I tried recovery cause I thought it was my password but its the app itself it keeps reading error occurred during the recovery for your password please try again????
More availability 3/5
I wish u guys were around Davenport Florida
Iām not sure itās worth the time to download this app 2/5
This app applies to jobs on your behalf and it does not ask if you would be interested in those jobs to begin with. It is very frustrating. Also, I think the app has robots that pose as hiring managers and ask the same generic questions. The worst part is that youāre able to see the last time a hiring manager was online. Sometimes the person was online 7 days ago, yet you receive a message from them (2 days ago) asking about your qualifications. How? If they didnāt come online how can they ask. Extremely robotic. Iām not sure itās worth the time to download this app.
This app is horrible , yeah they give you at least a day to give you a message back asking about a simple question for you qualifying for the jobs , and you answer back.Yet they arenāt fast to write back once youāve written them back,they take like a week
Quick and easy! 5/5
Great app, really quick and easy, excited to apply and hopefully get hired!
Yāall not even in my area .... š
Waste of time 1/5
This app sends job leads that are irrelevant and from very sketchy employers. Every interview Iāve gotten was a group interview with some questionable company or a staffing agency that Iāve already signed up with. Iām flooded with jobs outside of my requested field. Most employers send messages but stop replying. Frustrating.
This app is terrible 1/5
I canāt get a proper location for where I want to work. Also if you accidentally apply somewhere you canāt unapply.
Irrelevant alerts 1/5
The constant jobs alerts being sent to me is it irrelevant to my interest. Iām yet to receive a job Iām interested in.
Best app for finding job 5/5
I like this app . I share this app with my friends etc. and they get good jobs
Really very satisfied
Jobs chat 2/5
How do you even respond to a employer though chat I tried many times
How do I delete my account on this app. Itās horrible, applying for jobs that I donāt want to automatically
No use 1/5

This app doesnāt work! I waited for a week but i havent got any job recommendations!
Not as helpful as advertised 2/5
By Alexis Mel.
First let me start by saying that I downloaded this app on Tuesday (3/19) and since then Iāve had 28 employers reach out to me, which I think is really great. However I work in the Loss Prevention/Asset Protection department which is a complete different aspect of Security and unfortunately Merlin has no job description for this. Even when searching in the search section, Loss Prevention and Asset Protection both come back with āno results foundā and that is extremely disappointing to me. The other thing I find incredibly annoying is that most of the employers that teach out to me have nothing to do with what Iām looking for. Because Merlin doesnāt have LP/AP as a job title, the only options I can put in the work experience section is either āAgentā (which is constantly getting confused for Telemarketing Agent or Sale Agent) or āSecurityā. And the last thing thatās absolutely infuriating is that once you decline or withdraw an application/chat with an employer you CANNOT DELETE THE CONVERSATION! So everything just clogs up your inbox and you have to scroll through conversations to find a new one once it alerts you. As much as I like the fast responses and the reaching out by employers, Iām disappointed about not being able to find my specific job description, because it makes it all the more difficult. But Iām even more disappointed about all the non-related offers I get because my job description doesnāt exists on Merlin which means thereās no real reason for me to continue keeping this app in my phone. Hopefully the Merlin team fix these issues and actually be able to help people in my line of work find a job. My advice is to use LinkedIn, Indeed or Monster.
Mi expectativa 5/5

Me estĆ” ayudando mucho
Time wasting!!!!!!! 1/5
Just automatic messages from app. Not from employer!!
Misleading and robotic 1/5
By dissapointed and broke
Upon downloading the app at the great recommendation of a friend, first impressions were pretty cool. The idea of speaking directly to employers via a chat is a fantastic idea for people who cannot handle the pressure of phone calls. However thatās it. Thatās all the good the app has to offer. Thereās not an efficient way to tailor your distance so you could be living in maspeth or corona and youāll find an overwhelming number of offers from New Jersey. Often times, I believe the creators of the app are the ones replying on behalf of employers because messages are the same robotic āHi, Do you have the skills for this position? Let me know! Talk soon.ā And replies often go unread. Also, thereās the instance of automatically applying to jobs like what??? Thatās unprofessional as hell and that crosses some major boundaries. Work out the major bugs of the app, Then release it.
Terrible App all around 2/5
This app is horrible! Itās constantly sending me notifications and messages for jobs that have nothing to do with me and thereās no option to change your notifications for what youāre interested in. It also prompts you to apply to a bunch of jobs at once the second you open the app, and āappliesā without even asking about cover letters, and when I first downloaded the app it āappliedā to some without a resume. I guess it just sends them my profile? But I still think that is unprofessional. Itās so easy to accidentally apply to jobs, too. I was excited to use this app due to the numerous positive reviews I read but it sure seems like Iām using a totally different app than whatās being praised here.
UPDATE AFTER THEIR RESPONSE: My problem with this app is NOT because I did not find employment on it. Thatās the only thing Merlin addresses in response to this review. I said this app is so irritating sending so many unwanted and irrelevant messages to me. And not showing me the jobs I ACTUALLY clicked āapplyā to in my applied section, and in screening section is a whole bunch of the jobs I did not apply to and have no interest in. There are no settings to remove those jobs from the section, no options to delete the messages from employers I am not interested in, no option to change the settings for the types of jobs that I want to be contacted by, ***those are the reasons for the poor review***.
Very frustrating for business to use. 1/5
It seemed good at first, but on our first day using the app, the system glitched and was sending me hundreds of duplicate notifications and suggestions of people that we had no interest in. I have it a try for a few weeks, and found that while easy, there were no quality candidates using the app. They then released a new feature, that to make it short, gitched and started sending out job offers to anyone and everyone on my behalf. I then spent a week trying to get a hold of support, notified them of the glitch, and rather than pausing the new feature, they let the glitch continue for another week before resolving the issue. The concept of the app is great, but I lost all faith and trust in the company. The support team completely understood why, but did nothing to regain my confidence. Even after 3 job postings, we had no luck and I finally had to remove my organization from their system.
Needs an update fix 3/5
When I send messages to employers, it shows like I never sent a message, and prompts me why didnāt I send a message. When I force close the app and reopen, it shows that I sent the same message twice since it didnāt show me the first time I sent the message and even asked me why I didnāt send a message.
Fix this glitch quickly, I need to find work fast, not waste time force closing the app to send a message every time.
No jobs in the Atlanta area at all 1/5
By Pum pum conquerer
Waste of my time
Overall great app but I have some concerns. 5/5
Before I start I would really appreciate it if someone got back to me about this and helped out.
But anyway if been on this app for a while now and yes itās absolutely extremely easy to apply for jobs in no longer than 2 minutes. But my concern is that no one ever contacts me beck for interviews or anything really of that matter. Iām desperately in need of work and have found plenty of jobs I would love to work at but when I apply and send a text explaining who I am and etc., I never get a text back.... from ANYONE. Like how am I supposed to work and be of service if I canāt even get passed the first step.
Once again can someone please get back to me on this? I really need help.
If youāre on the West Coast this app wonāt work you like Portland Oregon
Not in my city ): 4/5
Downloaded this app.. and made my account etc. my sadly this app isnāt in my area!! Can you make in it California š
would mean a lot!!! Would like to try it!
Does anyone know how to delete their account? 1/5
Iāve been trying to delete my account and canāt figure out how to do it ?
More errors. Messages not showing up. Not letting me view profiles when it said someone was interested in me.
Not getting an answer back 3/5
They message me first offering a job, i reply and they never answer back. What is wrong?
Super frustrated and annoyed! 1/5
I thought this was a good app, but I honestly apply too like 100+ jobs and the only thing I am getting is jobs declared āinterestedā and said āawaiting replyā I replied with mostly short text āI am definitely interested in this position, I hope to speak moreā then get no replies for weeks.. am I doing something wrong, or are they not getting the text. Iām super confused.. I am about to delete this app, super struggling to find work.. :(
great app 5/5
easy way to apply to jobs! very stress free and simple to use. love.
Used the app, yes I got leads and was great. But the app ALWAYS IS CRASHING . Deleted and Re-Downloaded 4 times, my messages never show up or they never send out because of the glitching. I know it is not my service due to the fact that everything runs perfectly but then I try to go into the app and it just sits there loading .
The app wasnāt even AVAILABLE in my city, I live in a pretty good sized city.
Crashing app 2/5
By keeps crashing!!!!!!!!!!
I have been using the app for about a month and for some reason it keeps crashing on me. I have updated it and still keeps crashing.
App Glitches 2/5
The concept is great and very straightforward however the app glitches like crazy with jobs spamming theyāre interested in me and then when I do reply, it says I didnāt reply.
spam or something? 3/5
okay so i recently have been receiving tons the exact same messages however from every job i ever applied from on here should i be responsive or is it a glitch?
Pretty good!!! 5/5
They make it so easy to upload all the needed information and documents and applying to jobs are just a click away!
Waste of time 1/5
I went on an interview for what was supposed to be an admin assistant job. I ended up in the back if a laundry mat in the middle of New York City. It was almost kind of laughable. Save your iOS data space and just go to Glassdoor, Indeed, LinkedIn, etc to look for a legitimate and professional job.
Not the job app for everyone 2/5
The job posting Merlin can find and match are only service related job (cashier, guard, plumber helper, etc...). If you are looking for jobs in other industry (ex: financial service, banking), this is not the app for you! I canāt find any job that matches my background, donāt like it.
This app does not work!! Still jobless after 2 weeks using this app Iām in NYC
No Jobs 1/5
There are no jobs available on their app to apply for. every time i search for a job there arenāt any.
