Monster.com's website is among the top employment sites as far as number of hits and it offers a number of services catered to job recruiters and seekers. Monster.com purchased the Jobs.com domain name in 2002. Visitors looking for a Jobs.com review, can find almost the same quality as Monster.com. Some things that set Monster apart are alliances with newspapers in major cities like New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago, a focus on Twitter advertising, and sensitivity to accessibility needs on their website.
Monster's value plans for job recruiters are as follows:
The minimum commitment for a monthly plan is 90 days and the commitment is 12 months for an annual plan.
A one-time standard job ad costs $375 and decreases in cost per job ad as more are purchased at one time. For example, if you purchase 100-249 standalone job ads, you get them for $130 each. However, by including a location and job title, Monster can present less expensive job bundles (depending on the location) with optional add-ons. A skilled or hourly job ad costs less at $119 for a 14-day job ad, but has fewer options included.
Monster is constantly running special offers and promotions, such as buy one ad, get one free. Promo codes get the customer a certain percentage discount off.
Monster provides services in over 40 countries and its network includes 1,000 newspaper partner sites in addition to its own website, web network, and mobile apps. According to the company's daily stats, 35,800 resumes are added to the database every day, 6.5 million job searches are performed, and 5.1 million jobs are viewed.
Monster's home page provides links to six different communities for job seekers: career start, healthcare, part-time, retail, technology, and transportation. Each community features blog articles, job listings, career advice, and tweets relevant to the industry or job seeking phase. This way, job seekers that fit into these niches have a learning center already curated with resources that fit their needs and goals.
The education center for recruiters categorizes their resources into the categories of
recruiting and hiring advice, workforce management, market intelligence, monster training, HR events, and small business. It features 2 free guides: a business hiring guide with basics on creating an effective job ad, and a guide to hire, engage, and retain millennials. Recruiters will find Monster's "best keywords" series especially helpful-these articles feature the best way to cater to job seekers in several specific metropolitan cities in the U.S.
Monster.com was founded in 1999 with the merger of The Monster Board (1994) and Online Career Center. The 1994 job database containing job descriptions from the newspaper was the first public job search that could be searched with a web browser. So though The Monster Board was an extremely simple, dinosaur version of today's Monster.com, we count the company as an impressive leader in the job industry.
Paid clients get on-demand support during business hours through live chat (Monday-Friday 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM EST) and phone communication (available Monday-Friday 8:30 AM - 8:00 PM EST at 1-800-MONSTER. In fact, all Monster.com visitors can chat with the sales team through the live chat or submit a help form to the service team.
very good company for doing a job search. They offer many filters for the user to set up their job search
I had a good experience with Monster. I filled out loads of applications and was able to easily find jobs that I could qualify for.
Monster's review score is 35.3% lower than the average review score of the top recommended Job Search Company
the posted my resume on monster and i had a lot of recruiters reaching out to me. I really like their service
The jobs are very limited in my area and I've never had any luck finding anything. It seems to be geared mainly toward white collar workers.
Decent site. Shows jobs and sometimes pay of the specific job. Pretty user friendly but I don’t think it’s as popular as other sites like indeed and those popular sites I’ve found companies post most of their jobs
They helped with local places hiring that were equal opportunity employers which most places don't help
Love the service Monster provided when searching for a job. thanks for providing a cast array of options.
Monster can sometimes show results for jobs that are not really available by companies. You always have to call and double check. Sometimes when applying through their website, the company does not receive the application.
I was looking for jobs overseas, on browsing at monster, I realized that there were thousands of articles on how I can advance my career coupled to the several options I had. There are several tools I use to advance my job Search on monster. Thank you very much monster for the job listings, career advice, resume help and all the other tools.

I like that I was getting responses back from putting my resume on there even after my resume was a year old I didn't like the user interface I thought that it made it a little too difficult to upload my resume
I really like Monster. It is to navigate and always has relevant jobs to my search. I like their articles and handy tips, which I find very helpful. I believe that out of all the search engines Monster will be the one that I find gainful employment that I like.
Monster was very easy to use as far as getting an account setup and getting work history organized. The problem was the job searches were spammed with repeat ads, work from home nonsense, and military recruitment ads. It was not worth spending the time digging through all the mess.
Provided a lot of options, and an easy to navigate through what I was trying to find when I was looking for a job.
Monster is my go to when looking for a job to be able to see openings. They make it easy to upload your resume and apply to multiple jobs quickly.
I went through the steps of updating my resume and uploading to monster and it was very simple. Their main page is very easy to navigate to look for jobs and post my resume for jobs.
Easy to find jobs in the area. Some jobs can be applied for right on the site, making it nice and easy.
It use to be one the best job searching companies in the USA. Within past two years or so it offers almost for good leads, too far away or not related. I would imaging it reflects their prices increased for companies searching for employees. But I found no heal for over 2 years.
I like looking for jobs here because it is a platform that is very simple to use. I quickly found jobs in my area and was able to apply hassle free.
Monster has always provided very good job options, information and requirements For the position being applied for.

Easy to navigate the page and look for jobs as well looking for candidates, i find this website to be worthy of your time
I found it easy to apply for jobs on this site. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a job to use this site.
Great job search platform, but its almost too big! Too many jobs and you never know if they are still available. Saturated with too many applicants; its difficult to compete with so many resumes. But it has everything you need to find a job.
Monster is a good job search website. Very thorough. They are great for matching resumes with job positions available.
Good way to find jobs. Safe and secure. Always updated. To Bad they are not around so much now.
Monster is an exceptional job search online platform. It has so many industries and a variety of skill levels to apply to. They can keep a resume on file to share with potential employers too making this tool very valuable.
Moster is a giant of a job search tool. It houses information on available jobs on its platform and make job searching easier. Many time saving tools help users get better results. I have this tool as a must have job search assistant. It is comprehensive as it is intuitive guiding me to successful job opportunities.
Pretty good app. Has a lot of good business training tips and job opportunities. Not quite as many jobs listed as some other sites, though. Still a good app.
Monster floods my email with information that isn't always relevant to my profession. I keep trying to unsubscribe to the email blasts, but for whatever reason I can't get it to stop. Plus, I feel like I can never find jobs that are good fits for me.
I have searched for jobs on monster but never had much luck. It depends what kind of job you are looking for.
Used monster to look for jobs when I finished college and that was the place to find jobs. I found exactly what I was searching for, worked out great.
Monster has a lot of scammy jobs and if you upload your resume you get a lot of calls for low paying or sales positions you wouldn't be interested in.
Seems like the site that you used to use back in the day to look for jobs. It's still a good site but not the top of the list.
I've never had much luck with actually having Monster find me a job, only interviews but it is a decent job board site!
I always used Monster in my job searches as they were most up to date and all companies seemed to be using them. Searching was easy and found a job using them.
Used Monster years ago in looking for a job. Was actually pretty ahead of the curve at the time, though I think the space is now owned by Indeed.
I have used Monster in the past, and it has been good for Tech positions, but other competitors have now been offering more of a robust tool.
I had used Monster a few times in the pass, but telling the thru after I started to use Indeed I never used Monster any more. The competitor it is more easy to manager and use.
I love the navigation on Monster's website for job search. Its hard to set yourself apart when it comes to job search engines but I feel like Monster is on the better half of services. It seems like many employers use Monster which makes it a great choice for Job Seekers. I would recommend giving Monster a try!
Monster is good for finding a job, but I don't think every place uses it, so I feel like the job options are a bit limited compared to other job listing websites.
monster in my opinion has taken the back seat to all these other job search tools out there now. Their online website is okay, its just outdated and more inconvenient than most other job searches.
Monster Resume search is completely worthless, they fail to market themselves in the tech industry and I haven't found one decent candidate on their resumes board in over a year. Would never recommend.
I have uploaded a resume and searched for hours, and never had any luck hearing back from companies, and I had to often retype my resume even when I could successfully upload it to the site. I wasted a lot of time on this site
Very limited. A lot of the positions listed were scam work from home, or seasonal ones. Wasnt very helpfu
If you ever put in your information, be prepared to be spammed with emails! It's crazy how much they will email you and it's so irrelevant too.
Sent out some Resumes to places I found on the site but never heard back from anyone. This of course is no fault of Monster.com and I appreciate sites like this that help people connect with employers. The interface was clean and simple.
My experience with Monster is not great. The jobs they list are not ones I would consider applying to. Difficult to search job postings.
I found my medical assisting job through Monster.com. I love my job. The Monster website is very easy to navigate and kept me excited looking for a job.
Being able to put your resume out there is really nice, but every time me or my husband have done that on Monster we always get sales people contacting us. It makes it a little disappointing when you are really trying to find a good job!
When I first graduated college, I didn't have a job, and randomly put my resume on Monster. The next day I got called for an interview for a potential job!!
Avoid this site! I got call's from random strangers out of state who didn't even speak proper English. I was getting phone call's of jobs i didn't even apply for. It was a joke! Do not sign a contract with them, thats all they care about is the signature and after that it is difficult trying to get a hold of someone.
