FlexJobs.com Reviews – Legit or Scam?


from 7 reviews Review It


FlexJobs.com is a new website that helps people find telecommuting jobs. FlexJobs works with both employers and potential employees to create a website where professional companies looking for telecommuting workers can be partnered with people who are not looking to get rich quick, but rather are simply looking for a job they can do from home.

Telecommuting is one of the most in demand types of jobs today. When many people head to the internet in search of work, they are not actually interested in starting their own company. Unfortunately, 90% or more of the “job” websites you come across are actually business opportunities, that require monetary investments and time before you will actually make any money.

Telecommuting jobs, on the other hand, allow you to work from the comfort of your own home with the security of working for an established company that can guarantee you a regular paycheck. For a monthly subscription fee of $14.95, you can create an account with FlexJobs that will give you access to legitimate database of telecommuting positions.

Is FlexJobs Just Another Job Finding Scam?

Traditionally telecommuting jobs have been incredibly difficult to find when doing a general search online. The biggest reason for this is that salesmen and vendors understand that these are attractive job opportunities, and they will target those types of online searches by having their own websites appear in the search engine results.

As mentioned before, 90% of these websites are either trying to sell you a business opportunity, a business training kit, or they are posing as a job finding database in order to get your information and then sell it telemarketers and other “partners” that will spam your inbox with special offers.

FlexJobs is actually a real job database, if you can believe it. They have not only been covered in stories from reputable sources such as CNN and The Wall Street Journal, they have also received a Webby Award in the Employment category.

In addition, if for any reason you subscribe to FlexJobs and you feel it’s not the right service for you, you can request a refund within the first 30 days.

    Flexjobs.com is a legit web site; like another one, Virtualvocations.com. they both do the same thing for the most part with roughly the same cost. The problem that I have with both of these web sites, is that they hire research associates to scour the net to find these postings and put them up on their respective web sites. It leads people to believe, and wrongly so, that you need an account with them to apply for these opportunities. Yes, it’s handy to get company names etc; and it does save you from having to do the leg work; but they make it look like they’re giving you something you can get nowhere else and that is untrue. I personally applied for a few jobs and was denied one because the employer said that flexjobs did not have the authority to take their posting from their web site and put it on their own. Needless to say, this has given me pause and is causing me to rethink my subscription; despite the fact that it is a handy resource for at least seeing what companies are hiring for flexible/telecommute job opportunities.

    I’ve had them for 8 mos and it’s been a total waste. I don’t even read the emails any longer. My biggest complaint is the mis leading job alerts. They’ll send an email saying you have 6 new job “matches” Actually it will be 1 listing for bilingual job; hiring for6 different languages. They’ll be super exotic languages like Russian, Swahili, Mandarin, Portuguese. Such a waste. Not to mention they mix in regular jobs with telework jobs! I spent over three hours applying for a job and taking all the necessary test. It wasn’t until the companies HR rep contacted me 3 days later, about a phone interview; that I found out it was a job in Tempe, AZ. I live in Chicago, IL! After that I stopped dealing w/FlexJObs

    It seems that people are NOT PAYING ATTENTION. I came to this site to check out FLEXJOBS.COM and all I see are people bashing MYflexjobs.com and some other group completely unrelated to flexjobs.com. I read the article and was impressed, will be taking a closer look. $30 for 3 months isn’t a bank breaker and I need part time from home. The only thing I’ve learned from the comments is that either people can’t READ or pay little attention to details.

    This review should not be associated with FlexJobs.com. FlexJobs.com is a completely different company and not associated in any way with myflexjob.com or mypcbackup.

    Really great site! After months of trying to find a good fit for me locally, a friend suggested I try the Flexjobs site. The very same day I signed up, an opportunity that was a GREAT fit for me popped up – I applied and got a response the very next day. The company that hired me is designed to be a totally virtual workforce (everyone works from home), so they have every system in place to take advantage of the vast pool of talent out there that wants professional, part-time or flexible work.
    My job is challenging and rewarding, and I can be home to make dinner and not miss any of my kids sporting events while burning gas sitting in the car commuting.

    Excellent service. I was laid off unexpectedly from my job of 7 years, and live in a rather rural area so I was struggling to find a job that offered similar challenges and compensation. I thought working from home would be nice, but kept coming across scam ads (you know the kind, “I make $1000 working from home!!!”). I found FlexJobs by literally searching “how do I find real work from home jobs?” in Google. Once I read about their service, I decided to take a chance and sign up, especially since they had a money-back for any reason policy. I wound up not needing it. The day after I subscribed, they emailed a job to me that was a great match and I applied. The next day I was contacted for an interview, and now I have a great job in my field, with great pay and the benefit of working from home. I cannot recommend FlexJobs strongly enough.

    Great website! I found a coupon online and signed up. So many listings! The requirements for each position are clearly listed and easy to find versus the tedious read-through that you get on a lot of sites or directly from the company. I was able to find a dozen or so jobs that fit my schedule and level of commitment and appropriately apply for them. Within a month, I have a perfect telecommuting job that lets me work from the comfort of my own home.

    Note on this website: the more specific you are about what you’re looking for, the more matches you will find. There is still a level of searching, but FlebJobs really does the heavy lifting for you. Happy hunting!

    This is a great site! I was hesitant to sign up at first, but after researching the company and checking out their press page, I decided to give it a go. It was a really refreshing experience, because there were no ads or junky scams mixed in, and I was able to find job postings that interested me way faster. I found an awesome part-time job that allows me to telecommute (I live in a small town that doesn’t offer many career options), and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t think I would’ve found the job posting without FlexJobs. Yeah!

    Well where do I begin. It is a waste of time they do not have a good system. You cannot tell what job has been taken, jobs stay on the website for months. I tried to apply for a Medical coding position started filling out the application could not finish so I saved it so I could go back later and finish it and I get a message telling me that I do not qualify for the position how is that possible when I had not even submitted the application. Some of the coding positions required a 4 year degree, we were never told we would need this when taking the course. Well I requested a refund ,I will be more careful the next time when looking for telecommuting jobs on line.

    Since I also have used the site, I wanted to comment on Lainey’s input. One of the things that is different about FlexJobs is that they “hand-screen” job listings from many other sites, and once it’s screened, they aggregate the legit jobs for their users. But when you go to apply to a job, you are often taken to the original job posting either on the employer’s site or sometimes on another job board. This means the application process is usually not on FlexJobs. So Lainey, when you were actually applying, it sounds like you were on the employers site, and that is where you found the problems. Also, you said you requested a refund from FlexJobs. Did you get one? They say they offer them, so I was just curious.

    Lainey, your bad result was probably due to incomplete info they received. You do not need any degree for a medical coding position, although many people have degrees or medical experience, (i.e. retired/former nursing staff, office staff. My wife has a degree in environmental geology, experience as a consultant, then a teacher, now a medical coder (4 years). She works at Verisk Health. Contact them through this link: http://www.veriskhealth.com/careers. They are always looking for people.
