Is Mommy Jobs Online Legit? What Do You Think?
Mommy Jobs Online Details:
Opportunity: You can pay to access a board of online jobs based on working-from-home, which you apply to via them. US/Canada Only.
What does it cost: $210 to access every job category section, or $85 to unlock individual sections, (or “job banks!”).
Is this just another company praying on stay and home mothers who are trying to seek out legitimate online work?
Well, there is a such lot of that about online, so you need to be weary before buying into these sorts of opportunities and tread cautiously.
What Is Mommy Jobs Online?
Mommy Jobs Online could be considered a membership site of sorts, where you pay to be able to access a database of work-from-home job opportunities.
Even though, you could arguably find them all online by yourself, for free – Mommy Jobs Online charges quite a hefty fee to access their job listings.
For some people; I guess it would be convenient to have them these jobs in one place and I can understand why some people would find the idea appealing.
Additionally, Mommy Jobs Online do claim that they screen each job for legitimacy before adding it to their board – which will appeal to people who are worried about scams online.
Personally, I would not pay a fee for accessing what is basically just a job database. In fact, this is often the sign of a scam… but not always.
As it would appear, some people online are perfectly satisfied with the service they provide here, (I say appear, because I’m not entirely sure some of the reports are genuine).
My initial impression upon entering this website was not good. But I decided to keep an open mind!
What Do Mommy Jobs Online Offer?
They have a variety of different job categories on offer here – from transcribing jobs, medical coders, call centre work, telesales, writing jobs, virtual assistant work and so forth.
You can see a snip of the selection below. As you can see, you need to pay $85 to access a single section, or you can pay $210 to access every section. Each section they call a “job bank.”
However, accessing a job bank doesn’t automatically guarantee that you will get a job. You still have to go ahead and apply for positions.
This will mean that you could potentially pay $210, with zero guarantee that you’ll have a job by the end of it.
This would be an extra financial blow if you’re already struggling financially.
You can find jobs online by searching online, there are plenty of free job posting sites and forums all over the web.
At least attempt to search for jobs for free initially, before paying out for a service that may not deliver.
Another problem is, I wouldn’t pay for a service like this before checking out the company – and reviews are limited when it comes to this business, (as well as confusing, I will explain more a bit further down).
Mommy Jobs Online Reviews And Complaints:
What I found most odd when I was researching this company, was that the reviews were so different in nature – there was no middle ground.
Comments seemed to suggest the company was outstanding — or a total scam.
But additionally, the positive comments largely struck me as somewhat insincere.
Common complaints seem to point to Job Ads being out of date and poor customer service.
However, Mommy Jobs Online did respond to the last complaint above, saying that it was not their fault if companies did not respond to their application.
They further said that, if a company doesn’t respond to your application; this will be down to the relevance and strength of your application and nothing to do with Mommy Jobs Online.
To that I can agree; although they did not respond about the jobs on the website being out of date and there have been several comments regarding this issue.
People have also complained that any jobs they could actually get were incredibly low paying jobs. Jobs that were repetitive and dull.
Additionally, people have complained that the entire website is a waste of time and money, because they only list jobs that you could find anywhere online via searching, for free.
So, why would you pay so much money to gain access to a bunch of extremely low-quality job prospects – that you could find yourself online?
Surely, people paying this money will be hoping for more than pocket money and if they’re paying a premium for a service, they’ll want premium jobs, not jobs that are poor paying and outdated?
Mommy Jobs Online Testimonials:
One thing that stuck out to me is that they have a lot of testimonials on their website.
Now, I can’t say that these aren’t all perfectly 100% genuine – but since I have sorted my way through many scams online, fake testimonials are something that you can get hold of very cheaply online.
This is why it’s unwise to join a company or program, PURELY on the basis of testimonials.
For example; in the two videos below – it appears they are reading from the screen.
Would you need to read from a script to give a very brief testimonial about a company you’ve recently joined? Doesn’t seem like it would be difficult to say a couple of sentences?
Is The Positive Feedback Genuine?
I found there was a rather odd contrast going from a feedback perspective.
Comments and feedback seemed to me to either be really bad – or unnaturally good, (considering what this site is, at the core – which is a website that charges you a lot of money, for not very much).
It would be a very cheap expense for mommy jobs online to hire people to look over the web for any negative comments and reply, as well as post positive reviews for them.
From my perspective here, paying to access a less-than-legitimate looking website, in order to access an arguably out-of-date board of jobs and information; isn’t something I can imagine people raving passionately about!?
Am I missing something? Something just does not add up here.
Take this post below that I found on Indeed.com …. Does the response to that comment look like a paid promotional response to you?
Notice above, they say that it’s not just legitimate… it’s very legitimate. 🙂
They claim it to be a great resource to find a stable income online and that they offer great work.
Is Mommy Jobs Online Legit, Or A Scam?
I have to be honest with you, I’m unsure what to make of this website.
What would say, is this website has enough warning signs to be cautious and weary – and I don’t feel what they’re charging you for is worth it.
There are enough complaints out there regarding poor quality job listings and out of date jobs – and you wouldn’t know what you’re getting until you’ve already paid the fee.
Ultimately, if you want to find online jobs, you should be able to seek these out online for free; without paying anyone to do that for you.
If you’re hoping to work online as a freelancer, you can also list your services for free – somewhere like Upwork.
