  • I can see where this site might be helpful but it's so littered with junk that they are hard to take seriously.

    Examples:

    Set up alerts for specific jobs in a specific area. 4-5 email per day for a month. 50 jobs per email. Absolutely none of which contained the title or phrase of the job I was looking for.

    They mine and post jobs of companies that are complete frauds like IVY Exec, Execunet, etc. I assume this is to increase volume and look like they have more than they do.
  • Never signed up, never heard of this site, and I'm employed. I got a welcome email out of the blue and then a listing of jobs as a security guard: I'm a professor. Looked up what's going on and it's obvious that they're pulling in information from some other source and signing people up. I won't bother trying to click through to their website: it just tells them that you're getting their emails. Instead just keep clicking spam until their emails are sent to oblivion. Eventually the large email providers will blacklist them.
  • Beyond.com is a great source for job placement. I found more unique candidates on Beyond , than when compared to many dups between CB and monster. I would recommend to anyone looking for ROI in the staffing space.
  • beyond.com started hitting my email quite awhile back and has never stopped. I never signed up for anything with them. They have no option to unsubscribe or opt out. I go to their website and there is no way to opt out that I can find. They send about 1-3 emails each day.

    I would love to have that company stop spamming me.

    They have not received an invite to send me email. I have not paid them a dime. And I wouldn't trust anything that was unsolicited.

    Below is the info I find. But unfortunately the voice mailbox is full.

    • I had the same problem.

      If you haven't come across it yet, in the top right corner of their website is a down arrow. Click on that, account settings and delete account to get rid of it. I just did and I will be doing unsubscribe through my mailbox. Good luck.
    • Coincidentally, after posting the above, I received yet another email. This time it asked me if I wanted to opt out. So I went online and did.

      I'm a little happier!
  • The site is a fake that is run by the government if you talk bad about them in any way
  • Don't make my MISTAKE !! DON'T UPLOAD YOUR RESUME TO THEME !!

    As soon I made an account I started receiving Spam emails but I didn't pay them and I wanted unsubscribe so I did according to their site but they continued sending me spam job of fake position !! I'm stock with them forever.
  • i tried to apply last two weeks the beyond not work in my pc.
  • I tried to apply for a job listed. It just would not work. I emailed beyond.com that their site is dysfunctional, and got a mindless form reply that I am "will no longer receive job alerts..."

    Dysfunctional it is!
  • Offered a free resume review on their website to which I clicked yes (Hell, why not?) and I then received an email from a nice chap at Monster telling me that I had already received a resume review from them several months ago.

    It seems like they just take your info and input it into Monster's resume review and then claim it as their own work.

    I deleted my account after a few minutes on there.
  • I know I un/checked the box for resume review. I can't recall check or uncheck, but I didn't want it. They sent it anyway. Remove abbreviations (I had listed Wachovia Bank, NA.) 'career summary is too short', 'Unfortunately, your existing resume gives the impression that you are a "doer" and not an "achiever."', 'structure of your resume is lacking in organization and consistency', et cetera.

    To make a long story short, I get plenty of interviews. I need help landing the job.

    I used a custom email address. I'll come back here once I have counts as to how much spam they send.
    • So far I've received one acknowledgement of the job I applied for and seven other messages. Two more messages pitching their resume services today. Beyond scammer is looking like.
