Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors... is cheating people out of their money. They are charging people to apply for jobs and get the full job details when it's free on a website like Craigslist! I was looking for marketing jobs and I registered with iHire because it wouldn't show me anything else. Fine. I found a few jobs that interested me and wanted to read more details. Guess what's next? iHire is requiring I pay for membership. For example here is one of the jobs I found on iHire:

So I have to pay to read the full version and also to apply? No, thank you. [continued below]....
..... I searched the job description and guess where it's at nearly WORD FOR WORD FOR FREE? ---> On Craigslist!  Link: I can also send my resume and coverletter directly to the posting on Craigslist and not have to pay iHIRE!

Is iHire stealing copy from another company's job posting?

Then, I found this job description on iHire. Remember you have to pay to read the full job description and apply.

So I Googled this job description, and guess where it's at strangely almost WORD FOR WORD? On Craigslist. Link here: BTW, you can go straight to Evolve Discovery for more details and bypass iHire completely! SO WHY IS IHIRE PROFITING FROM THIS IF YOU CAN GET THE SAME INFORMATION DIRECTLY FROM THE COMPANY HIRING OR FROM A FREE CRAIGSLIST POSTING??

Think again, job searchers! These people are scammers and taking advantage of individuals who are looking for jobs! Be careful now. I'm sure they will try to change the copy of job descriptions so you if you try to Google again, it won't lead you to the free source! I provided screenshots.

P.S. It's funny. I just saw iHire's posting for a Marketing Assistant position for Chronicle Books. I laughed. I saw this same posting on the Chronicle Books website and on Craigslist. You can apply directly to them for free.

I apologize the screenshots aren't in order

AUTHOR: Romae2012 - (USA)

All the screenshots are there, but the screenshots of iHire posting for Chronicle Books should be first. Then the screenshots for Chronicle Books posting on Craigslist and on their website should be next. I apologize.

Basically, the screenshots are to show you that you don't have to pay for this information - that iHire is requiring your sensitive information for job postings that they robbed from other websites. The information is free on other job sites that don't require your credit card information.
