Ratings and Reviews
Disappointing on all levels
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.
Finding a Date, not a Career
Not sure where to begin besides that I rarely ever rate apps. But this one is very different. What happened to the old Monster? Did you turn into Tinder? To begin, the sync between the website and what you have in the app are completely off. I have to enter my info twice which is highly inconvenient. Second. I do NOT want to do a full and complete keyword search when you could easily introduce filters. Have I mentioned how wonderful filters are? Let me filter by location (which by the way if I do filter by location and limit to 10 miles or so, I get other states, which I do not understand). If I search for a specific title, I am told that this job is not available. Yet when I look for said title on Indeed or LinkedIN, it appears with HUNDREDS of results, not none. I’m not too sure who programs the app and the website, but they may want to think about working better as a team! I receive more hits on my resume here than anywhere else, which is why I keep Monster. But if it wasn’t for that, I would never touch this app again. Please get back to the way you used to be Monster. The old Monster always had the perfect results and filters. None of the “Tinder” like ideas. It just ruins the juju of finding the perfect job. Instead it feels like I am trying to find the perfect date....I hope in the future that Monster turns this around.

Bad customer service/app
I downloaded Monster about three weeks ago and I made a account. When I made the account, everything went well until it didn’t let me sign in. When I would try to sign in through the app, it told me “get profile: http read on closed response body” so then I searched it online to see what it meant. I didn’t find anything for about a good 10 minutes. Now I try to sign in through Safari, It finally let me log in but now it only said “We're sorry, but the information you are trying to access has expired. Please Visit the forgot password page and have a new password link sent to you. Remember, the link we send you will only be valid for a short time.” This made NO SENSE because I had already logged in. So again, I went on safari to try and figure out what that meant... I didn’t find anything once again. In that time trying to find help on safari, I didn’t get an email what so ever like how they said I was. Now I’m writing an email to their customer service and I told them everything, the email was sent on that same day and till this day, I still have no response. I still don’t have the other email I was suppose to be expecting. It was a waste of my time!

We are sorry for your experience. We had an issue for about 5 hours on the night of January 30, 2019 where mobile accounts were not being registered by Monster.com. It looks like your account was affected by that outage from the error you are describing (not something you would see in public searches) and the behavior you are describing. The only thing we can suggest is working with our help staff at https://monster.secure.force.com/ekb/EKBContactUs?brand=seeker to get your account reset.
Sorry once again for your experience.
