JobSlinger.com is a website that says they are “where the jobs are,” and that they have the ability to give their members access to job listings from hundreds of companies, all in one place.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, they are different than many other online job finding websites, as they do not simply “scrape” job listings and opportunities from other websites that post them.
Instead, they work directly with MSPA, Volition.com, and SASSIE to have companies to post their job availabilities and opportunities directly to their website so their members can have instant access to what is available.
Specifically this company posts jobs for people with experience in the mystery shopper industry. Unfortunately the website does not provide any requirements or explanations of what will be required by people hired for these positions, so if you are brand new to this industry, it may be difficult to know what to expect from applying or accepting one of these positions.
Using the general, standard version of this website is completely free, even though you are required to create an account before you can access their job listings in full detail. There is an upgraded service, called JobSlinger Plus, which costs $5 per month and allows members to create Targets. This is an advanced search tool that allows to set how far you are willing to travel, as well the places you most prefer to go when dealing with mystery shopping opportunities.
Since this website does not necessarily charge any fees for their information unless you choose to upgrade to a paid account, they also not appear to offer any Refund Policy to their customers. If you have chosen to upgrade to a paid account, these charges are paid on a month-to-month basis, so you can always cancel your subscription when you decide it is no longer worthwhile to you.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who have questions, concerns, or complaints they would like to direct to their Customer Service team may be given the opportunity to contact them through a Help or Support button on their account page, but this website does not provide contact information that is publicly published.
The website doesn’t necessarily seem to have any reviews available, though there are certain complaints, concerns, or criticisms listed in mystery shopping forums that mimic or support an observation made above: that there is very little information available in their free job listings.
People who discuss JobSlinger.com on these forums voice confusion over whether a job listing is still available, what the company is hoping for or expecting with their assignment, and whether the free listings are being posted in real time or if there is lag from what appears on JobSlinger Plus.
It seems many of these problems could be fixed or addressed by signing up for JobSlinger Plus, but most people are frustrated by having to pay a membership fee for a job listing board.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Mystery shopping is a well-loved industry with many different participants and supporters, and as such there are many websites that cater to their needs, including BestMark Mystery Shopping and more.
