If you actually click apply then you will be directed to an application page for 'FREE CV Review', you will then enclose your CV and personal information to a CV review company based in India, and within 24 hours receive an email advising you your CV needs improvement and you need to pay 79.99 to make your CV improvements.

Within 60 minutes your email inbox will be filled with job agency spam, CV review prices, animal and granny porn, and viagra tablets.
really? this isnt hyperbore

This site has been turned into a pile of shite..
Before it was the one of the last places which didn't have that many agency jobs and they were direct.
It has failed miserably.
I can see why the government did it (to keep track on people and to see what they are applying for) but my goodness that Job Warehouse is now 90% of jobs.

Had a look on the UJM site the other day after looking at this thread, but there was only the odd job from the spammer. Looking at it now, there's shed loads of them, and I'm up north.

Wonder what they'll say when I ask about it on Tuesday.

It is awful, mine is full of jobs by a recruitment agency, who say "no" once then never answer you again. Oh and the endless "national jobs" that have no use or purpose to most! Anyway that's my own rant about it, the old site was much better. This site seems to have been created to spy on us and tell us how useless we are .
My CV has been sitting on this site for over a week on public view. Logged in and may as well use other sites instead.....rubbish!

Years ago the state would help people get a job, today we are all spongers. Anyone without a job though no fault of their own is a victim.

Seems to be lots of agency jobs for Monster jobs which i think is the company who runs the website.

You could always try this job application page with added music lol

Yeah terrible isn't it, yet the Job Centre and DWP tell us everything is fine and they are not aware of any problems.

Your getting advisors telling job seekers to check the website, and register details with these spam/fake jobs just to be inundated by 100's of emails, and money requests.

Its an absolute joke. I have stopped using it now, the last time I went on was Sunday night and there was about 25 jobs listed for CV Library (Job Warehouse Only), all complete and utter crap outbound commission based sales jobs promising 35-50k pay. When I went into the job center Monday morning to sign on, I told the adviser that I wouldn't be using it anymore and that I will be using jobsite and approaching employers myself because I was sick of seeing all this spam and she was quite rude to me and said "Its in you agreement that you have to use this site", so I asked to speak to a manager and told him the gov website had been ruined. i don't think he seemed too pleased lol. They don't like receiving feedback like this, because it makes them look stupid and we are the ones that are supposed to looks stupid because they have a job and we don't!
