Has anyone ever got a job from Gumtree? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Is it a reliable site or not? what do you think?


    From experience alot of the ads that they have on there are not actually jobs, most of the time they are people that sit at home and don't have an actual business but manage to get ads like this through the system in order to get people's details.

    Quite a few times I've sent CV's to supposed companies and got an e-mail back in my junk mail from an e-mail address along the lines of '[email protected]' (made the blowjob bit up).

    Having said that, there are a few reputable companies that advertise on there and many restaurants/bars/clubs etc do have actual jobs available.

    I don't really look on it anymore because the job centre website and student job websites are better and have more verifiable jobs.
