His mailbox was full, so I was unable to leave a message.
Upon waking, I had a text reminding me of the appointment.

This is the only 'jobsearch' website that ask questions about FACEBOOK. It makes me uneasy. Maybe it's the sign of the times but I don't care for it.
they texted me with a message to my phone and knew my name when I called.
My Iphone did not give me a location that corresponded with the area code of the phone number they provided. After bombarding me with personal questions they offered me schooling via their education department. Where is the JOB.
Doesn't get any worse than this. Stay away!
what a scam. Just realized that they have been billing the credit card for months and havent gotten any emails from them. You can't even get a hold of them to access our account. The password retrieval function doesn't work and was probably never meant to. Jobnab is happy billing me for no service rendered. Learned a lesson about giving away any of my information to these creeps. One is better off writing a check every month. It is easier in the long run.
Can I give ZERO stars to these infamous and unprofessional E-terrorists?
They ARE crooks. They managed to access my name on a very major curriculum and database Web Site, now under my name and e-mail they beg me to access their Web Site just by giving out my information- I mean the complement. Do NOT post your resume, anything on these hiring Web Sites - this one based in NY And Maynard (cannot say the name of the Web Site.), or post your resume, NOT your full name and a e-mail. Believe me, they are kind of E- terrorists, their aim is to traffic your information, parasiting your existence, exposing you to ID theft by proxy. If you want a job, contact companies directly! Jobnab wants to NAB YOU.- poor soul in despair for a job.
I thought it was incredibly suspicious when I asked if I could record the initial "registration" phone call and was immediately told NO and that if I was going to refuse not to record the call with Jobnab that the agent would hang up. I then spoke with a jobnab "specialist" by the name of Robert who obviously did not hear me say I was recording the call because he kept right on with his script. When I told Robert that I had a Bachelor's degree his reply was "you are of course going to continue your education aren't you?" When I said No he seemed very disappointed. I asked very detailed questions about how exactly do they match jobs when they have nothing but my name, email and phone number and was told over and over again that all I had to do was change the job category on the web page. When I commented that that was no different from Monster, CareerBuilder etc he became agitated and continued his diatribe that I could change my 'interest' on the web page. I then asked to speak to his supervisor and big surprise there was no supervisor "available" but I could contact the corporate office by clicking the Contact Us link. I asked Robert for the phone number to 'his office (by which one would assume is the corporate office) to which he again replied that I could use the Contact Us link. I laughed and said "You don't even know the phone number to your own corporate office? This sounds like an outright scam to me exactly how does Jobnab make their money" At this point Robert stated that he was going to have to disconnect the call. I immediately called back, got another rep named Alan who began with the same script when I told him to STOP I was calling to have my information removed from their database and that I had better not get a single call from anyone associated with Jobnab including colleges, college matching services etc.
DON'T REGISTER WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!
Just recieved text message from someone telling me to register with jobnab so I could be considered for a position. Glad I checked first! Just wish I knew how they got my info in the first place!
An email was sent from a Maria Schubert claiming they saw my resume and had the perfect position for me. It requested I go to their website and register. Mm k. If you saw my resume and I am a match for a job, then why aren't you discussing the position instead of trying to get me to punch my personal information into your registration form? Just look at the terms and conditions for the answer:
"4. Email Policy. If you receive an email from the Company, its affiliates, advertisers, service providers, or other third parties, your email address was obtained as a result of either your express and voluntarily request to receive information from the Company, its affiliates, advertisers service providers, or other third parties or your existing relationship with the Company, its affiliates, advertisers, service providers, or other third parties.

Funny how simply filling out a "registration" form suddenly turns into you are consenting to having your personal information spread to everyone out there. You call this a job matching service?
Sadly, I was also sent a text message regarding a job, based on my resume, how nice they have a job need that I match. The sad thing is...I'm smarter and find the need to check things out as others I see do just to find out it's bull when I need a job and have the skills and get the idiots who prey on others misfortune. They should be locked up!
I received an e-mail from them early this morning saying pretty much the same thing everyone else here received. Some guy named Zach Conner supposedly read my resume and decided to contact me out of the blue with a tourism job? I never applied to any job in that market. Add to that the fact that they are based in Florida and I'm clear across the country. So they are still slinging the same old hash here folks. I called the Florida number and listened to their recorded message: many pauses, false starts, and errors. I will attempt to call them again and find out who they bought my info from: I'm seriously doubting they'll disclose their source, but one can try.
I unfortunately fell for this scam and sent them a w-9 for employment. I learned yesterday that someone used my social and name to file a tax return. Do not fall for this company!
I just got a text from JobNab.com, I looked it up on google and found out about the scam. Thanks for the warning. I need a job not a scam.
Ok I'm like everyone else out there checking out any avenue possible to earn some type of income since I'm not employeed at this time. I somehow came upon this "opportunity" to work from home. Well I figured it wouldn't cost me anything to check it out. Sounded legit. I have sat through two conference calls. (did wait 10-15 minutes before they started) The 2nd call was to have an open forum Q&A with a mgr after. That didn't happen. I haven't submitted my W-9 as I had some reservations because of the SS # being sent to (not exactly sure where) I can't quite seem to understand who would pay for a job listing when they can find it themselves. Also, on the call it was stated that the "company" does push Education. Well if you don't have a job, probably don't have any extra money so who's going to pay for Further Education. After further thought and receiving text msg's from Kevin, Beth, Pam, etc all from either Career Network or JobNab, I have come to the same conclusion as others. When you go to the link to complete your application, you get the Education question along with another phising site. i.e. taking a survey to match you with your best career path. This isin't worth your time or effort, If you are going to do all of this research for positions, apply for them yourself and keep your identity safe
i too got a text message indicating that a review of my resume showed a potential match. since my field is specialized, i thought it was odd that someone would send me a text message and not include any information about the potential job. i responded to the text message, figuring no one would respond to my question. no response. eight minutes of internet research suggested that the site is run by a guy who has been convicted for fraud and has been successfully sued for millions for his scams.
as the other reviews suggest, this guy is probably trying to get people to enroll in courses they don't need and can't afford. so if you want a sales pitch for some for-profit educational institution (as an aside, you should do some research on this phenomenon separately), go for it. if you're looking for a job, you might want to avoid it.
I thought it sounded cool at first then when I got the email with the W9 attached wanting my information. A red flag came up!! If we are supposed to be independent contractors then why do they want a W9. I did not feel comfortable filling out a W9 & sending it to a site that I have no idea who they really are. That is just asking for trouble. I sent an email to fox 17 news.
Just received the same text....based on your resume you match a job I'm filling, if interested register at JOBNAB.COM....did a little info search and BAM !!! here ya'll are with the scoop...didn't even hit their site after reading these reviews...
A poster Googled the owner's name, and it looked very familiar. It's none other than serial scammer:
Alec Difrawi, Ayman El-Difrawi aka ...
Modeling Industry Scams - Alec Difrawi, Ayman El-Difrawi (Ayman A. El-Difrawi) aka Alec Defrawy, Michael Difrawi, Michael Chandler, Michael Jensen, David Mellon, Alan Madison: (This is from part of a link I found on Bing.)
I was scammed by his "Modeling Agency" garbage. They were looking for "Talent Scouts" for the "Wilhelmina Scouting Agency" which was a scam uncovered by the TV show 20/20. I lived in Portland, Oregon at the time. Right after the showing I called the "modeling agency" and quit! Remember Lou Pearlman whom got The Back Street Boys band started? He got involved with one of Alec Defrawy's scams and is prison right now. This guy, Alec, cavorts with convicted felons. He stays just within the law to where they can't send him to prison. I'm sure law enforcement authorities would just love to send him there. This guy is famous for his many types of scams. If you do a search for his name, all of those names are the same person. He's certainly prolific in his many ways.
Wow! I didn't get a chance to even check the site out before I ran into these wonderful tips!!! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO POSTS ON THIS SITE!!!
My husband received a text message to log on to this site. Supposedly, they had received his application and they had matched a job according to his qualifications.
Well I googled this site and it so happens that many other people had received emails, and according to them its a scam. Just thought I'd share my experience with you.
I still don't know if its true or not, but I am not going to try it.
I received a text this morning. I am currently signed-up with several job search engines but know that not all offers coming from online or otherwise is not reputable. I looked at the company's website looking for a fee since usually job scouts charge for their services. When I didn't see one listed I decided to research more. I'm glad I did since I found this sight and now I won't touch JobNab with a ten-foot-pole. Beware.
Has anyone else had difficulty with the conference call?
Looks like from all of the bad reviews it is more of a hard pitched sales call, be careful if they do get you on the phone.
Has anyone actually gotten paid from this JOB?
Johnna R - do you work for Job Nab. Sure sounds like it since a lot of the things you are saying are the very same things said in the training phone call. I have been trying to do this for a week now and still cannot get one job verified. Isn't there some place to call to see if this is actually a business?
It isn't a real job.
Sounds like a skimpy way to get paid. You only get paid if someone opts for more education, and WHO does that when they are looking for work, so the odds of you getting paid is probably 1 out of 100. I think that with all the work they do to post these jobs takes a lot of time, and Why do you have to take and post the jobs you find onto other jobboards (even if they are free) on top of jobnab. I think you should at least get paid if a job searcher gets a job from all your hard work posting that job, not from the connection to a School recruit, who probably won't be able to recruit someone who has no money to go to school, and can't afford to pay off a hug loan to go to their school.
This site is complete BS -- WHO THE HELL WANTS TO GET HARRASED ABOUT GOING INTO MORE DEBT WITH SOME USELESS DEGREE WHEN YOU NEED A JOB TO EVEN PAY YOUR RENT NEXT MONTH!!?? Don't be fooled, this site will not actually help you get a job at all, it will just irritate you even more!
Well, I am glad that I saw all of these reviews before calling back. I am already in school so that would not help. I did find that receiving a text was the most unusual way of getting a job offer I have ever witnessed. It is upsetting that they have my resume. I also had an Anne text, but it was a 202 area code, strange that it would be two Anne's with two different area codes. The other area code someone else posted. Thanks everyone!!!
Right on cue, I just received a text message from Anne. I'm in Houston, her number is (512) in Austin. The internet has now become these firms worst enemy. I suggest that any jobseeker do their own "due diligence" before replying to any unsolicited texts or e-mails. I am on CareerBuilder as well as many other search engines. I would also caution you on filling out applications online or in person...NEVER divulge your Social Security # to ANYONE. It is also illegal for them to ask for age, sex or marital status. ILLEGAL!
I seem to have lost track of many of my previous comments but for some reason, I received this text this morning with more questions and complaints about Job Nab. Let me just say one more time, this is a company to stay away from. I worked HARD for well over a month and did not make a dime. After many phone calls to the company and getting a run around every single time, I let my manager know that I was no longer interested in working for free. I never heard another word - not even so much as "thanks for trying" or "how can I help you to make it work out". This was a complete waste of my time when I could have been looking for other paying jobs. Don't run the risk of investing your time and your self in this company. Six months later they are still sending me updates on jobs that have been matched for me and this is after I told them I no longer wanted to be part of their organization. This isn't a scam because they haven't really taken anything from you. It is just impossible to make any kind of living off of this racket.
Please read my review. The company appears to be owned by serial scammer Alec Difrawi. Google or Bing his name and you will find all the answers you need about him and his partners.
i got duped by this crap.
career network and jobnab are the same scam.
i get dozens of spam emails throughout the day now, that the spam filter hasn't adjusted to.
you live and you learn ... at least i didn't give them any sensitive information (SSN). BEWARE.
F*CK YOU JOB NABBER
Direct all of your complaints to the State of Florida's Attorney Generals' Office. Maybe, this time, they'll prosecute the crook.
He's been in their sites before. After all, he's a convicted felon! He doesn't know how to do anything else but be a crook.
