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.
Finding a job. 5/5
By the most higly recuested.
You guys do an excellent job.
By Shoez one
I just want to thank you for helping find a job . Hopefully Iāll find one soon with your help. The page move to fast Iām working part time for CEO works since September 2018 ....thank you ....and thank you for your help
Tiene. Varias. Sugerencias
Not for everyone 1/5
This is app is just for people looking for jobs in the service industry, not for jobs overall. I have a 2 page resume and a graduate degree and there is nowhere to put any of that information, you
Just put your most recent job. How is that helpful to employers? Iām not looking for a cashier or truck driver job. That should be explicitly written somewhere āMerlin, the app for searching for jobs in the service industry.ā If you are, great, this is the app for you, but itās not for everyone.
Useless app, waste of phone storage 1/5
The ad campaign on social media made me download this, it looked cute and promising, but warning: this is NOT for people looking for post-collegiate careers!! The jobs on here are all low level low pay sales and servers and Taco Bell managers etc. Nothing wrong with those jobs, but the whole dream job awaits you ad campaign is a lie lol. Couldnāt even search properly within the field I actually want even with all the SEO tags. Just stick to indeed or monster. They post the exact same jobs as this āspecialā app...
I HATE IT 1/5
it dosent even load jobs in area... it says error every time
By Joffre Ordonez
Easy to find jobs not so easy for employers 2/5
By JVNewtonNew Jersey
Merlin app is great to find jobs it seems. I am not however looking for a job. I am trying to find future employees. This app gives you to create an employee account only!!!! And to make matters worse, there is no way to switch accounts. And donāt think about trying to ask the administrators for help since THERE IS NO WAY TO CONTACT THEM! Unfortunately I will not be using this app, I will not recommend it to others, and I will have to continue to look else where. Thanks
Useless App 1/5
By balboa skywalker
Some java exception! Fix your errors
BEST APP EVER 5/5
I have been applying for jobs with a bunch of different apps putting my resume everywhere nobody would hire me. Until I downloaded Merlin. I got a job in under a week of using this app and it is the best job I have ever had. Thank you so much. I recommend it to every struggling student or unemployed person out there. You wonāt be disappointed.
Itās best for people in service industry 1/5
I love the design and functionality of the app but itās not meant for people in fashion industry. Specifically, Iāve had people that own dry cleaners say they want an interview with me and clearly have not bothered to look at my profile. If one were to read my profile they would clearly realize what I am searching for has nothing to do with their business. This app over all is really good but it just doesnāt have enough employers Iām assuming.
I signed up and now when signing in it says my email or password does not exist but when I go to keep resigning up with my telephone number it says I have an account. So there is now way for me to actually login in.
I updated my app 1/5
After updating the app I canāt seem to get in at all Iām still receiving emails for jobs
Love it 5/5
By Moises sanabria
Installed app 2 days ago an i got hired today to start a job tomorrow that was super fast an super easy thanks merlin !!!
You guys rock
I got a response after 1 day just be patient and youāll find something
This app works ! 5/5
I was looking for a full time job I saw this app on Facebook and decided to download and give it a try I did my profile and add my resume and started applying to jobs & within 2 days I got a email for a interview I went and got hire the same day !! I already started working Iām going into my second week already!! Iām so glad I try this app !
WORST of it ALL- AVOID 1/5
we tried really tried hard with this app and company! while app seems working fine sync with their data is bad not poor. overall company have issues for example we received 286 spam messages, emails from applicant that we blocked. not to mention a fact that applicants while we treat with 100% respect they have freedom to bash unexpectedly and unruly anyhow to the job posters. we cannot have ANY APPLICANT to under our umbrella with attitude bit here this portal allow anarchy and not freedom. company response is very poor 48h to initially respond and basically that means dead end. so yeah maybe we did not have best experience but we had brutal and unpleasant instead. AVOID - this is not worth trying.
Scammerās Paradise 1/5
By Seriously Not Amused.
There are a few things that make me tic. One of those things is my time being wasted. Applied to a Job position āMarketing Assistantā the company is called āANS Advertising INCā. I applied to the job Wednesday and by Friday they wanted me to come in for an interview. Ok great! Show up to the building, which looked like it was ripped straight out of Jeepers Creepers (skepticism 20%) but that didnāt sway me. Went to open the door to get inside and lo and behold the doors are locked (skepticism 40%). Great! Waited for a bit because I was early and to my surprise another candidate for the same job position shows up. She is obviously as puzzled as I am. She tries to call in to see if someone could open the door for us. It goes straight to voice mail (Skepticism 60%). At this point I try to inspect the surrounding and find that there is absolutely no indication that this run down place is actually a functioning work environment. Plus there is no sign for the company visible (skepticism full 100%).
At this moment the other candidate and I stared at each other with the same disappointed look because we knew that this was just some prank or scam. We both wished each other the best of luck and left before someone came out and kidnaped us.
Merlin you need to curate your job listings better before someone gets hurt. From reading the other 1 star comments this isnāt the first time something shady has happened. Donāt have people waste their time, money, hopes and whatever else that is required during a job search process. Itās disgusting and downright wrong.
Helped my disabled partner find a job in no time 5/5
Just as this title says, my partner is disabled with a hidden disability that make it impossible to stay on her feet for long periods of time. Trying to find a job using other sites wasnāt working, and she had been unemployed for about a year. I suggested Merlin to her after coming back to it after the overhaul you guys did, and she got a decent job within the week. Itās less impersonal and things move much faster with your app and we canāt thank you guys enough. We appreciate what you do. :)
SO AMAZING 5/5
this app really works i got a job within 2 weekes of being on. i been working for 3 months now and i make 17 a hour with almost 500 dollars every pay check i get. so this app i couldnt have done it without. Thanks Merlin š

How do I delete my account?
Great app for jobs
Recommend for people in NYC. 5/5
I havenāt gotten a job offer yet, but Iāve interviewed with 4 people already and they all seem very interested. The app makes it so easy to know if a place is interested in you or not. GET THIS APP and make your job-searching a whole lot easier!
Needs work 2/5
I really wanted to like this app, but there needs to be a lot of work done to improve it. Especially when it comes to distance, there needs to be a way to choose how far away from you you would like to be looking for jobs. I was recommended jobs that were not close enough to make it worth my time (New Jersey, Connecticut, as well as locations Iāve never heard of). Overall Iām a little disappointed with this app, especially since it was advertised as a āNew Yorkā only thing.
