    I wonder if they will use Monster for all their job finding needs.

    @Cowboys_fan: Nope, they’ve all got JOBS OF A LIFETIME!!!111!1!! WORKING FROM HOME, MAKING THOUSANDS PART TIME!!!!1!1!!

    Monster’s a joke.

    I think the real question we should be asking is why on EARTH does monster.com need over 5,000 employees in the first place?

    Actually, the recruiters for my last three jobs found me through Monster (and they were much better paying jobs than I had at the time). I don’t have any significant problems with Monster, though I hate the ads that seem to be multiplying on the site.

    They are going to restructure HR? Shouldn’t the HR department at Monster be the model of HR departments? I do have to wonder why they need 5000 people as well. I guess I don’t understand internet companies…

    That explains why I’m having trouble logging into my employer account at Monster today.

    I found my last two jobs with Monster. I worked at the first for 4 years, and it brought me from low-level project manager to director who regularly communicated with CIOs and COOs in healthcare. The second I found there as well, and has me earning an excellent salary and has great potential for further career growth. So yeah, I hear people complain about Monster, but have never really understood it.

    Of course I always ignored the “work from home” and salesy sounding positions, as well as overly vague descriptions from recruiters, but other than that it definitely panned out.

    @formergr: Careerbuilder is where I got my new job. About the same as Monster. Great tools but infested with advertising and MLM scam.
