May 27, 2011 - Unemployment is at an all time high in the US and more and more people are turning to online job site connect them with employment opportunities in their area. However many people are left with one of two options; option one sign up with larger sites like www.monster.com and get lost in the shuffle or test their luck with some of the newer smaller online employment agencies like www.snagajob.com.

Snagajob is a newer and smaller online search engine that helps people connect with current job opportunities in their area. Most jobs on snagajob are entry-level jobs that seemingly would give anyone a chance at perhaps a new career or trade. There is a problem however, snagajob really does not have any relationship with the companies they claim and most jobs are simply fictitious and are only listed in hopes to elicit personal information from the job seeker. Once snagajob gets you on their site they immediately try to collect as much data as possible from you, thing like home phone numbers, cell phone numbers and home addresses. They do this by simply asking you to upload a resume, or fill out an online job application and BANG they sell all of your personal data to the highest bidder. Once you have filled out an online application at snagajob or uploaded a resume, the phone calls will begin. Telemarketers from all over the world mainly from India will call you day and night. They will force you to change your phone number and is some cases people have become victims of stolen identity. I highly recommend if you are looking for a job stay clear of snagajob and go elsewhere to seek employment

SCunemployed said: We are required by law in South Carolina to make a weekly online job search. You go to the SCWorks site, when you click on "interested or apply" 90% of the time it takes you to the Snagajob site. I started getting the calls that day, and daily. I do not answer because it only rings twice without leaving a message. Which doesn't give me time to answer.

SmartGuy said: I decided to go through with it. All hey do is give you informaion about colleges. They are not represenitives of these schools so they are not enrolling you, but instead will have someone from the schools contact you and give you more informaion about what they offer. I declined them all. So they arent forcing you to go to school.

SinThtea said: You guys need to be schooled...

First off, before you submit any information to a website about a job... READ THE POLICIES... they are allowed to send your informaion to 3rd party companies without your permission. If you don't like that, don't sign up. Simple as that.

Secondly, When this number keeps calling it's because you hang up without giving them more informaion as to if you want the informaion or not. (when they are a third party company hey will keep calling you until you say not interested TWICE after their rebuttal). Once you do this they will take you out of the system.

Third, Soon as they call tell them to put you ON "the do not call list". You may have to do this multiple times because there are a bunch of different third party companies who use the same number from the website.

Fouth, don't be rude to the caller they are doing their job. It's the Management and CEO's of all companies involved that you should take your anger out on.

Fifth, The more rude people are to each other the more common it is to just be rude. Don't be he cause, make a difference.

Eric replied to SinThtea : Wow! Well-said, my friend. I completely agree with this. There are people out there doing their 9-5 jobs calling people like us. They never asked to be treated like sh*t. If you don't want these offers anymore, POLITELY decline. If they are persistent, then it is YOUR job to keep declining as it may very well be THEIR job to stay persistent, if that's the case. If you don't like that, then by all means make an effort to file a complaint to the company about how they carry out their services. WWJD?

So it seemed legit to me, but almost 2 hours after I finished applying I got a phone call, no message..

Rachel said: I filled out my profile 2 weeks ago and every weekday since I have received 3 calls a day. I am not exaggerating. Yesterday I sent their customer support an email trying to delete my profile and telling them not to call me, but they have still called twice already today. I am now trying to figure out what avenues to go through to report them and get them to stop...even though you would think telling them on the phone that they should stop would work!
