This is horrible 1/5
Upon opening the app the first time, you require a full profile to be filled out before you can do anything else. Sorry, no. But I played alone anyway, entering as little as I could to satisfy the requirements just so I could see what jobs came up.
When taken to the “results”, to my surprise, it’s not a list but a Tinder-swipe interface. Then I found out once you swipe off—you know, to evaluate the other listings—you’ll never be able to see the listing again unless you save it? I don’t want a long save list just so I can glance at a listing again to see where it ranks in my preferred job search.
Searching leaves a lot to be desired. My family is relocating, so I want to be able to just bring up a list of all available jobs, then be able to use a set of good filters to sort the results for each person. This doesn’t allow for a general area search, requiring a keyword search. This is ridiculous—but then again, Monster’s filters on your web listings are also trash, so I shouldn’t be surprised.
Conclusion—It’s worthless, much like the website. Uninstall, cancel account.
Having trouble 1/5
Trying to get to JOB APPLICATIONS! Tired of getting the run around. Downloaded the app. Why can’t it be simple?
Horrible app 1/5
Worst ever. I made an account it wouldn’t let me upload my resume so I reinstalled it and It won’t let me log in or create a new account or use Facebook.
Great job site 5/5
Easy to apply and read descriptions.
The App is Useless 1/5
By Beth Dawson
Words cannot describe how useless this app is.
Always running into error issues when trying to update resume or other areas. Never get confirmation about jobs in which you apply. Job alerts usually don’t send jobs that are in line with resume. Location settings send me jobs more than what I am willing to commute to.
What is this??? 1/5
No matter what job description I put in, there are no results! Really? Because Indeed shows me hundreds. And what's with the swiping to the left? I'm not here to find a date, I'm here for a job.
This new app is for the birds. Terrible !!!!

Search Engine? 1/5
By Brighton Commuter
One should be able to search without having to upload a resume first. We HAVE to give you data mineable Personal Information prior to deciding if we want to. Once released it cannot be taken back. One should only have to submit the information to the potential employer, not Monster to bank the data.
How do you manage to function at all with the EU privacy laws now in place? Does the EU get a different app than the States?
When did searching for a job become like a dating app - swipe left/right/up/down? First things first, the app cuts off a lot of the job description, that it makes it difficult to understand - compare the app vs web browser for detailed postings. Secondly, the app keeps recycling irrelevant roles that you have already dismissed - if I have passed on it, stop showing it to me. Third, the app contains the same job posted by different parties - read the descriptions and you’ll see. Fourth, the scavengers (fake “recruiters”) disrespect your contact preferences and contact you on every medium you’ve provided - this is terrible and obviously data mining looking for anybody to fill their role. Overall, avoid this app because of the above and go with LinkedIn’s job search is a much better tool and an all-in-one solution.
This isn’t it. 1/5
Looking for an app to help find a job in your field? Well, this is NOT it. It just shows me a TON of jobs that aren’t even close to relevant for me. No matter what preferences I set, money, location, it just shows the same jobs that, like I said earlier, aren’t even relevant. I’m not now nor have I ever been working in healthcare but yet it keeps showing nursing jobs and veterinarian jobs. Also, the swipe left/right then is a terrible idea for the purpose of this app. I just get in the “swipe-left zone” and something pops up that might be mildly relevant but nope. My muscle reflex already swiped left and there’s no going back sooo... I’ll stick to the other job hunting apps until this app is better.
This new app is worthless 1/5
Will give zero search results when searching for a listing found on your website, without uploading a resume. I Will Not Upload My Resume to anywhere I do not want to, and that is only to possible employers. Let us search without keeping personal information on your servers for you to sell to others.
Endless unrelated results 1/5
If I had to guess, they’re getting money for pushing 100% completely unrelated crap. Immediately after allowing emails, I turned it off, because they’ll show me anything but what I’m looking for. I’d rather see zero jobs till one appears in the field I want. They displayed endless sales jobs when that has absolutely nothing to do with what I’ve inquired about. I’ve never reviewed an app, but the app seems so poor, well, here I am. Why wouldn’t they use filters, I wonder? Again, I wager they get money for pushing those unrelated jobs.
Highly Recommended 5/5
By Zedmaster mc
I originally had a problem with services provided by Monster, however Monster went above and beyond to make it right. It is truly refreshing to find a company that stands behind their product and believes in customer service.
I highly recommend Monster.com.
Poor Quality app 1/5
By JP Me
Will not let me view jobs in the area I want, only where it thinks I should apply. I am looking for a traveling position but only brings up in shop work.
Surprisingly low tech 1/5
By AU Big Mike
I’m not sure the point of having a profile with preferences but then getting pinged with every job in every field. I have fairly narrow search filters intentionally to weed out jobs of which I have no interest. Unfortunately Monster sends me every single job that I can imagine that meets my minimum salary filter. I’m simply not going to swipe left on hundreds or thousands of opportunities in hopes of finding one. Why not simply show me the dozen or so real opportunities? #shouldntbethisdifficult. You’re a tech company - prove it!
No support 2/5
What is the purpose of having a phone number (800-666-7837) if it’s only being manned by an automated system and then it hangs up on you when it gives you the email address to email for password reset.
The statement on you’re website that says “call monster and talk to a CSR brteeen 830am-6pm” is not true.
I’ve submitted 3 email queries because I’m having issues logging into the app but no one has reached out to me. It says there’s an issue with my resume/ password however I use the same password to log in the acct on the desktop. I’ve changed my password more than 3 times since Friday but the issue is not yet resolved.
By fixing to be homeless..
More simple to navigate so far! Others take to to all kinds of fake sites..
Not very good UX 1/5
I thought this app would be great because the website is, but it is not helpful at all. It sends me jobs that I have no interest in, and it can’t even pull up jobs from the website or emails it sends me. Very frustrating.
Whats the point? 1/5
Whats the point of applying to jobs when no one EVER responds back to you? Yes, I get an email confirmation from Monster saying I applied to the position.....but after that crickets. No response from the job posters, no turn down notifications, absolutely nothing. Feel like im on Tinder mindlessly swiping left or right on jobs I’ll never ever hear from. At least notify us if the recruiter or poster viewed our application and make it a requirement for the poster to turn down the applicant if they aren’t a good fit like normal companies do. Seriously a terrible app. Much much better job search sites and apps out there that I have way more success with.
Good job search app 4/5
It’s a quick and easy app to use
برنامج معقد 1/5
برنامج معقد تماما لا استطيع التعامل معه لا يوجد فيه خانات لتسجيل البيات كاملة يتم ارسال ايميل يطلبون فيه كتابة البيانات واذا فتحت التطبيق يحول الى صفحة فيها بعض التطبيقات السيئة ولا نتعامل معها نهائيا ونقف عندك تبك المرحلة ولا نكمل ومن صمم البرنامج معقد الأمور كليا ومعقد وسيء جدا
No jobs 1/5
The whole way they set up your preferences is far too under developed. Literally the only thing they ask for is your “preferred job title” and then an upload of your resume.
Anyways, literally all the jobs I was offered had nothing to do with my preference that I had entered. After passing on all FIVE of the total jobs it had to offer, it started looping back and showing me the ones I had already passed on.
After they reappeared like 3 times, eventually it told me “no available recommendations”
It’s been days, I haven’t gotten any more recommendations. How am I supposed to apply when I’ve got no jobs being offered or even showing up in my search? I try searching generic jobs and still get zero results. I literally cannot use this app for anything at the moment.
Nice app. 5/5
Great app, very helpful.
Disappointed in Monster deeply 1/5
No bartender jobs. Sends jobs I don’t care to apply for! It wastes my time and energy. Too many commission related jobs shoved into my face instead of jobs I need or jobs I’m looking for. Lots to weed through!
Its cool but all over the place. 2/5
I looked up cdl class A jobs and it couldn’t find a single one so if its missing the million truck driving jobs what else is it missing?
What the... 1/5
Cannot go back to browse a listing once It’s been passed or applied.
So far, so awesome! 5/5
All I need to do is swipe left and just like that! I’ve applied for a job! ❤️🤞🏼
Love the help 5/5
Love the app
Best Tool For Job Apps 5/5
Been applying for jobs using at least 6 or more job boards and this Monster app beats them
ALL!!! Quickest, most efficient time management tool for a job search. Thank you Monster!!
The swiping interface is horrible. And not as many jobs as indeed or other apps. Gonna stick to indeed or ZipRecruiter. 👍🏾
Not worth your time... 2/5
Horrible app. The PASS / APPLY feature is the worst. I would much rather see listings on a page and scroll through them. This app looks like something designed for a 10 year old.
Awful Design 1/5
There is no way to just browse jobs. You either have to Apply, Pass (Delete forever), or Save.
Poor UX. Sometimes I just want to look and see if something is interesting enough to apply. Not decide if I have to apply right now, delete the job forever, or save unwanted jobs.
NOT user friendly at al!! 1/5
The search option is very limited. The results are not relevant. I get results that are completely different than what I searched for!
This app most certainly limit my ability to search job as per my preferences.
I hope they make it more user friendly. However, looking at the previous comments from the monster developers, I wonder if they are going to fix it or look into it at all!!
Recruiters do not read anything you write! 1/5
A significant number of recruiters using your platform do not read profiles or resumes at all before calling (Not even a glance) -- I am very frustrated that I cannot communicate my requirements to them through the platform before they call to waste my time.
I downloaded this app yesterday and applied for a job and today I got the job. This app works way faster than any website I’ve been on for job searches.
Not sure what the story is. 1/5
The app is not user friendly at all. You’d think a company like monster would have decent UX people. I mean it’s not a dating app, cut the swiping.
The search is not refined enough. In 20 years I don’t think I have used monster to apply for a job.
Very easy app to use. I love how interactive it is.
App is Horrible 1/5
I can’t browse jobs anymore on a list. Where are the relevant filters? What if I simply just want to browse? The card display takes huge amounts of time to go through. I have to swipe for each job. Really? How much time do you think I have? Bring back the old app - this is not a UI design for job searches. Hire an app developer who actually understands this market and not just dating apps.
And why are my search results - like software engineer - returning nothing? Are you using the same database the website uses?
Not even looking for what I want 1/5
This app looks at jobs that are completely different from what I am looking for or what I went to school for. It’s way off completely and I am considering getting rid of the app because it’s no help at all.
Give us a list instead 1/5
It would be better to have a list of jobs rather than a card
For ppl with degrees and not college students 3/5
By Y not fix
cooperate job searching.
Monster Rating 5/5
I think Monster is Great!
Incorrect job titles 3/5
Not giving me job titles in my field
Predominantly Recruiters 1/5
By Putys Daddy
They offer decent help with the resume building and cover letters. The only issue is that mostly recruiters use Monster this not the actual employers.
Great App 5/5
Limited functionality 2/5
Unlike the competing apps, I don’t see any place to read employer reviews, and heaven forbid if you happen to accidentally swipe left on a job listing. The job seems to disappear forever on a left swipe.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I’ve tried to use the app, but when I open the app, it disappears 15 seconds after I open it with no explanation. It’s like something isn’t right and the app is failing. I’m on an iPhone 7 with the latest iOS and app version.
