Terrible Job Recommendations 1/5
By Gloria Blue
Not sure what the algorithm is but I have to pass or swap left for all jobs. Also the app is not user friendly when it comes to searching for jobs or changing your email and notifications. Disappointed in the app. Out of all the job boards never had a recruiter or hiring manager reach out to me from Monster.
Worthless game/time waster 1/5
Been using it for YEARS. Have had NOTHING come of it. Just another “swipe left/right” time waster!
Not available 1/5
Clicked on 20 different jobs. Once I clicked, all saying they were no longer available... little frustrating - why are they still listed?
The worst! 1/5
Totally useless. It keeps sending me jobs I’m too old for. Monster is supposed to know my bio. Federal jobs have an age limit! Stop sending me National Guard jobs!
There should be a way to turn off ads or employers you are not interested in!
Glass door and LinkedIn is MUCH better!
Very Disappointed 1/5
By Sara M 520
I’m looking for a list of jobs to search through, not a dating site where I swipe. It’s not helpful being forced to look at one job at a time and if I swipe left, according to the message on the screen, I won’t be able to get back to that job. How ridiculous? Where is the list of jobs with the job and Iocation listed and you can click on it as many times as I need to? Deleting this app...not helpful at all in its current form anyway.
All over the place 3/5
The app picks roles from every industry and at every level. Feels like going through the Rolodex.
Crap site. No intelligence in the jobs selected 1/5
By Vieux carrezy
Site just repeatedly selects the same few jobs repeatedly. And they aren’t professional And don’t fit my skills, pay or location. Guess you guys ran out of cash and became just another spam page. Just horrible.
Worst job search 1/5
By Played this for months
I don’t even understand how anyone could benefit from this. I searched for Jobs that other sites have plenty of results and all it gave me was irrelevant results over and over again. Just bad
Fix your app 1/5
How is a job seeker supposed to use this app to find a job? The whole resume/profile section is a mess. I don’t even know what I am looking at. What I uploaded and filled in on your website does not translate into the app. The app is showing wrong dates (can’t even up date to the accurately show I am still employed at a specific company) it shows the incorrect length of time for some companies. I fear what hiring managers are now seeing. I will end up going into an interview looking like a liar because of this app.
Is this tinder? 1/5
I used to love monster for job hunting but this app is now horrible and useless. It’s not a dating site so why the swiping? I mean seriously who thought this was a good idea?
Love this app! 5/5
Saves on time by helping submit our applications
Thank you 5/5
Thank you for the app !!, easy to navigate
Ui needs work 3/5
Okay app but I seriously don’t like the job cards. I want the option to see all the jobs in a square section instead of one at a time
Very helpful! 5/5
Love the reminders.
A job search isn’t Tinder 1/5
You can’t just scroll through the jobs anymore...or like you can on another app. One by one you have to make a design. Apply...or “Pass” and you can’t see it again (according to the warning). Why?!?
So what if I just want to browse what’s available and come back later to make my decisions? Too bad.
What if I want to think about the company more before applying? Too bad.
It’s Tinder for the job world.
Bye Felicia...I’m headed back to your completion Monster.com...
Not worth keeping 1/5
They designed it like it’s a dating app. Swiping left or right isn’t how I want to look for a job. Delete.
Easy set up and easier to apply love it!!
Poor Suggestions 1/5
None of the content was relevant to my query...also, too much “Office Team” suggestions- if I wanted to find a staffing agency I’d go directly to them, not through another party that’s wasting my time.
Message center 4/5
Good app and great way to go through jobs but it’s not showing me my messages at all
This is kinda rattling me.. but there isn’t a option to write or respond to messages in the app??
Disappointing on all levels 1/5
By great app, user friendly
Normally, I do not take the time to write a review on apps. However, given the fact that Monster continues to market itself as the leading website for job seekers and recruiters alike, hopefully this feedback will be helpful to both of those demographics.
From a job seeker perspective- stick with Indeed or LinkedIn. Monster’s search results rarely match up with the key words submitted. It is set up similar to a dating app of ‘swiping left/swiping right’. When you swipe to dismiss a position, it ‘permanently’ removes it. According to the warning when swiping, ‘you will not be able to go back and apply for a dismissed job later’. Since the recommendations were never for positions similar to my uploaded resume and completed profile, swiping away those ‘recommendations’ was an easy choice. Additionally, be prepared that if you upload a resume and complete a profile, you will be instantly bombarded from insurance companies recruiting for sales people and franchise opportunities. If those are the fields you are looking for, Monster is the app for you. Everyone else, it may be wise to devote your time on other platforms which more closely align with your career field.
I kept my profile active and approached this app with an open mind. While it does have ease of use; the search feature, recommendations and sharing of profile information to ‘recruiting’ activities completely unrelated to your information earns it a 1 star and written review.
So uncomfortable to use, lack of filters 1/5
I can’t tell you how many jobs I’ve passed on because they don’t have anything to do with my skill set or interests. The same jobs are popping up multiple times after passing and even with adding the ‘ideal job title’ 99% of the jobs I see don’t apply to that.
Align your website and app - the differences make no sense and the usability from one to the other is so clunky.
Search results were horrible. 1/5
I used the search engine to search for “remote” jobs. Out of 114 results there were only 5 that weren’t result for VIPKid or AVON.🤷♀️
I never rate apps but this ones gives you options for literally Pizza Delivery or to be a truck driver. It’s the same thing all the time nothing different if you try to search for a specific type of job it “can’t” find that one but you go on other apps and can find something close to it
Good picks 5/5
Monster always gives me the best job selections. Without there help I don’t know where I would be
Horrible app 1/5
By legacy protector
Trying to get an understanding why someone thought only having two options apply or pass without ever seeing it again was a good idea. Not well thought out, extremely aggravating. Takes the ability to take your time away from you. Horrible idea. Previous app was way better.
Doesn’t show messages 2/5
I keep getting emails to check my monster account because I have unread messages. The app does not show any messages. This app needs to be updated.
Updating my Portfolio 2/5
I spent hours revamping my resume only to find that after making the updates to the site via my computer yesterday none of the extensive changes I had made were saved or showing on the app. The app and the online are showing two different portfolios but neither is what i spent time fixing yesterday. How am I to ensure what potential employers are seeing when I see different profiles based on my device and app?
Buggy and confusing 2/5
The app works like tinder which is interesting. I like that you can “swipe” through jobs fairly quickly. I actually like that feature.
But everything else about it is weird. I can filter by salary and location (the inclusion of “remote” is great!) but that’s it. How do I filter by field? I’m an artist yet I keep getting these wild high level corporate jobs that have nothing to do with art. The app also asks me for my resume and to check my profile EVERY time I open it. That is... not good.
TLDR: interface is easy to use but filter options are meaningless since you can’t search by field.
By only trying to asd
Never helped me find a job. Recruiters are sketchy and aggressive. Breaks all the time, shows like 2 jobs not even related to my search
This app is simply broken 1/5
I can’t even access this app? Go to create an account and receive an “authentication failed”?!?! I just want to look at job listings. The only other way to log in is for you to access my Facebook? No thanks!
Lots of fake jobs 1/5
I uploaded my resume and added key words to my search but all I get are jobs that have nothing to do with my experience. I’ve also received 3 different sales solicitations to buy a franchise! Fake jobs are listed- this app is a complete waste of time.
Used for 5 minutes and deleted. Downloaded to seriously look for new opportunities, not swipe left and right like I’m on Tinder. If you are a professional looking for professional roles, skip this one.
Can’t Search or Filter 2/5
By Mucho Disappointed
I’m scrolling through and deleting tons and tons of jobs that I’m not interested in because there’s no way to filter or search for what I’m looking for. Even when I entered a title for I’m looking for, none of the jobs that are coming up have any of the words in my title in them. Seems very random.
No support 2/5
Please fix your filters so what we actually get what we’re looking for. Ex: i continue to get mostly contract, temporary work when I have full-time work. It would be a good idea to perhaps add an option for contract, temporary work so it won’t continue to pop up under the full-time permanent filters.
Not helpful at all 1/5
I tried searching using several different position and still came up with jobs that have nothing to do with the searches. I like the idea of having a filter for distance because the very fee jobs that looked interesting enough to view were in another state or didn't say where they were. Finally, how can you have 4.6 stars when most of the reviews I read were one star?
Cannot build search rules beyond pay and location 1/5
You have to click through hundreds of random jobs because there is no way to narrow your search down. Waste of time
I don’t know if i like it!!!! 1/5
This app has so many problems, it logs off without you doing it, I’m guessing it needs a update!
App should be called “A-Z Temp” 1/5
99% of jobs in the Tinder layout are temp agencies. Donald Trump would be super proud of you creating all these fake jobs that are considered real jobs in the statistics.
Swiping left and right for a job? 1/5
This is not tinder. I need to be able to scroll through lists of jobs. I don’t want to see one. And the fact that if I swipe left means I can’t apply later is really stupid. Who thought this was a good change? You don’t need to be a unique app, you just need to help me find a job. It’s way too exhausting in this apps current form.
Inappropriate job recommendations 1/5
I do not like the new “Tinder” Monster app...I keep getting inappropriate job recommendations. At this point, I’d rather use just about any other job search app than this version of swipy mess known as Monster...
Very disappointed 1/5
By Joe B2019
This is terrible. I entered a desired title and it brings back nothing like it nor anything coherently related; RN, Welder, Press Operator, Training Instructor, etc. Someone needs to put some serious work into the query engine.
Needs improvement 2/5
Ok so the one thing I don’t get is that why doesn’t my information from the computer transfer to the app? I applied to 2 jobs on the computer via website and it’s not showing up in the app. This is annoying because I’ll have to remember which jobs I already applied to if I am looking on the app. If this app can be updated to do that, it will get 5 stars, otherwise I’m gonna rate it 2 stars.
Too constraining job search platform 1/5
Monster disappointingly limits hour job search within a max. of 100 miles radius from your city. This is too constraining and stupid of this job search platform.
VERY limited. 1/5
Either nobody around me (Detroit area) is offering a job, or nobody uses this. Plus the search is not functional. I would search for “mental health” and it would bring up Automotive techs. Plus a lot of pyramids schemers on here. So be careful.
Field Engineer 1/5
By Clive B. Smork
Are we expected to believe the company’s that advertise on Monster
actually pay $84,000 for simple
“doorbell camera” installations.
Monster needs to clamp down
these False ads for employment.
Not very helpful in my opinion.
Too many irrelevant result and repetitive results after swiping left.. I also got a lot of spam from ppl after uploading resume to monster but that’s not their fault I suppose.
I was laid off and really needed to find a job asap. Using Monster i was able to secure a career opportunity 👍🏼
Needs a lot of work. 2/5
By anna fruin
Not helpful. Once you pass on a job you can’t go back and apply to it. Search isn’t efficient.
