Job Listing Service

Author: Better Business Bureau
Category: Service

Job seekers often report that companies similar to this one post advertisements on the internet and in newspapers offering high-paying employment, often with little or no experience required.  Some advertise for positions available in specific industries in which employment may produce above average benefits or offer some other desirable perks.  We consider these types of advertising practices to be deceptive and misleading. These companies are not actually offering employment and therefore cannot guarantee it.  Most fail to disclose any fees associated with their services and often misrepresent that their fees are for screening or interviewing costs. Complaints about similar services allege that advertised employment was unavailable or that jobs were non-existent, that listed companies did not exist or did not provide permission for publication, and that the advertising related to earnings potential was misleading.
