Snagajob is a job search website/app that specializes in hourly job employment in the fields of retail, hospitality, healthcare, and restaurants. The company is headquartered in Richmond, VA and is known for being named the best small business to work for by the Great Place to Work Institute in 2011.
There are currently 60 million job seekers and 15,000 employers with accounts on Snagajob. There are consistently over 400,000 jobs listed. In 2015, Snagajob reached its high of 1 million active job postings.
Snagajob is clearly concerned about safety and security based on its pool of resources on these topics alone. Job seekers can find information, tips, and warnings about the following internet safety topics:
The company's learning center features pages and pages of fun, informative videos. Many of these are animated and they all seem to be geared towards the largest group of Snagajob users, workers ages 16-30. One video series focuses on ideas for answering difficult and "weird" interview questions, such as:
The company has 3 major features that make the job application process more efficient:
Visuality Personality Assessment
This assessment is supposed to measure a candidate's personality and predict how he or she would react to situations on the job, resulting in a score between 0-100. This score is meant to show how successful the candidate is likely to be on the job. It is similar to traditional job application assessments, but takes 3 minutes rather than 30 minutes or longer, a typical assessment. Snagajob claims that 90% of their job-seeking users complete the assessment, which is statistically proven to be more accurate than the Myers-Briggs personality test.
This feature essentially converts a candidate's Snagajob profile into an application that can be easily viewed by the recruiter. This component increases job posting views by 50% and delivers a mobile app completion rate of 90%, compared to the job search industry average of 2%. (To be fair, though, a system like 1-click apply wouldn't work for most salaried job descriptions and application requirements where it does work for hourly jobs.)
Employers can sort, filter, and review applications quite easily with the profile-type application system. They can like or decline applicants (much like a Facebook friend request) which sorts the applicants into different lists for further review by the employer.
Snagajob started in 2000, giving the business over 16 years of experience.
Snagajob's customer support perk is the ability to ask job search or career questions in the comments area of their educational resources as well as on Facebook. In general, these receive quick responses from employment experts-and sometimes in-depth ones. The support team can be reached by emailing [email protected] or calling (888) 762-7624 between 8:30AM-7:30PM ET Monday-Friday.
Without exception, job seekers can search for and apply to jobs at no cost, even for the 1-click application service. Job recruiters have a few different options for job postings. None of them are cheap, and this is with a maximum of 3 postings (a plan with more jobs posted need to be arranged with the sales team):
I like Snagajob because they send you updates on new openings either through email or text, or both..which ever you prefer. I like the alerts sent when new opportunities have come up. I like the chat option when trying to communicate with a company you're applying for.
Snagajob was extremely easy to use and let me quickly find jobs in my hometown without worrying about being sent to other websites or having issues. I love that it is also free and allows me to do everything at my own pace.
Very informative on jobs near me. Doesn’t give me jobs out of my area that would be too far for me
They send you a lot of emails for jobs, so lots of potential options. They're very helpful.
It’s always very fast and easy to submit applications and resumes. I have received multiple calls back for interviews thanks to snagajob. Even got hired at a few locations.
The sign up process was easy. The job selections was easy to find and apply to. I would recommend because it was recommended to me.
Snagajob is a great place for anyone looking for a job to find a large variety of options!
I didnt find my job on this site but it was nice while I was looking. I was getting a lot of extra emails that were not connected with my field of choice. I eventually had to cease all mail because it was a little excessive. Also, I updated my address but I kept getting mail from my old address in a different state. I wouldn't use it again, to be honest.
I was able to use Snagajob to help me find a babysitting job. It was easy to use, but make sure to put the right cities/states in order to find the jobs best suited for you.
Snagajob helped me get my first interview ever. It does a good job of laying out the available work positions open near you and it's very easy to create an account. I like the simple design.
I browsed through Snagajob a few times to help look for employment for my son. It was easy to navigate, let’s you make specific searches, and seems to keep jobs up to date.
Snagajob is by far the easiest way to look for jobs that are perfect for you! It has so many great jobs that lead to so many opportunities!
