I used Monster three years ago, and they just don’t get it.
As a quick comment on the service, it’s the “shotgun” effect of recruiting. You get about 50 resumés a day, and they’re all crap. You spend about $300 for a listing, and you then spend more time filtering the crap resumés from the real ones that by the time you’re done, you’ve invested two or more hours a day trying to find the proverbial needle in a haystack. Which I never found.
I ended up hiring someone from Craigslist (which, is about the same quality, but at least it’s not $300 per listing.)
I’ve unsubscribed I don’t know how many times from their “email alerts” (at least three), and they continue to send me bullshit email like this.
All I know is that I, like many of their potential return customers, just get pissed and will not give them a penny more business.
Above is a screenshot directly from my email program. And yes, the “To” actually says “donot email“. I’m not sure if this is me being a wise-ass years ago (probably), or they have a do not email list that Ms. Chapman decided to spam.
When I get a chance, I mark this as spam on whatever public services are availble, but these guys should be taken out back and shot.
Monster gets added to the top of “The List.“
