Then I looked up all their addresses and info on Google, and I was NOT impressed at all. TOP apparently "shares" a suite (what kind of big "consulting firm" ONLY has a suite in an office building with plenty of others?) with Empire Execs. or some shit. They also have the SAME ADDRESS as "Base Media", for some reason. Catalyst was no less disgusting. And OfficeTeam is run by Robert Half, if I recall, and it is THE WORST of them all.
This is insane! Why can't CB just police its own FUCKING LISTINGS?? YOU ARE THE ONES WHO APPROVE AND ALLOW THIS SHIT TO BE POSTED ON YOUR SITE; ergo, it's incumbent upon YOU to make sure that scammers don't prey on desperate job-seekers with false listings. To be any less thorough just shows how LITTLE you care about job-seekers and wanna fatten your company's pockets for listings. Pathetic. Truly pathetic.
CB is like a HAVEN for scammers, and it's so sad that the people who run the site don't seem to give a shit. They've become complacent. It seems like JUST ABOUT ALL of the major job boards are full of this crap! You just can't get away from it no matter WHERE you go these days, esp. on Craig's List's "job" listings. What a joke THAT is...
Guess what? I actually got called for an 'interview' by American Income Life for an insurance agent position, and you wanna know where they 'found' my resume? CRAIG'S LIST! I apparently sent them an email with my resume from a good-sounding listing! They DIDN'T EVEN IDENTIFY THEMSELVES IN THE LISTING AS AIL. How can a BIG, "prestigious" insurance company like AIL pull this nonsense?? If they're good enough to attract the right talent, why do they need to fish for resumes via Craig's List, of all places? Just randomly looking for candidates wherever they can find them. Looking for dupes.
*facepalm* And Herman Cain wants to bitch at the Occupy Wall Streeters?? FUCK YOU, Cain and all the other Republicans (save Ron Paul, perhaps) who blame the job market on US, rather than Wall Street and the businesses who have LOTS OF CAPITAL BUT REFUSE TO HIRE, some explicitly due to partisan, anti-Obama fervor.
