Homejobplacement.net Review | Is Homejobplacement.net a Scam?

Homejobplacement.net appears to be a resource for people looking to work from home. Their site asks you for your zip code, and says it will show you what jobs are available in your area. It turns out that every zip code returns just two job openings, and they are all at the same company.

Is it worth considering this company’s offer? Let’s look at the homejobplacement.net sales pitch and see if it passes my “three strikes” rule.

Strike 1: The Domain of Homejobplacement.net Is Misleading

Homejobplacement.net may place you in a job you can do from home, but it is not a job placement agency. Asking visitors to enter their zip code on the landing page is also a needless charade since they always push the same job openings on everyone. (Don’t believe me? Try visiting http://homejobplacement.net/index/ instead of http://homejobplacement.net, and see how many jobs are in “your city.”) If you are looking for multiple job opportunities that you can do from home, you are going to have to look at other sites.

Strike 2: The Testimonials on Homejobplacement.net Are Worthless

Homejobplacement.net has a whole textbook of disclaimer language at the bottom of the page protecting it from a variety of accusations. In those disclaimers, they note that while the testimonials are “real and accurate,” they are from people who have been “remunerated” for allowing Home Job Placements to use their endorsements (This means that homejobplacement.net compensated them to say nice things). Compensated testimonials are no substitute for a fair evaluation from an unbiased source, and in this case the testimonials are next to pictures that “are not the actual images of the attestants,” which makes me wonder why they even bothered posting them.

Strike 3: The Homejobplacement Affiliates Are Nameless

Homejobplacement.net is not affiliated with Apple, Calvin Klein, or Microsoft, but that doesn’t stop them from citing those companies on their website. Although homejobplacement.net claims that these Fortune 500 companies need your help, you will not be working directly for them. In fact, all of the text on the page leaves it deliberately vague as to just who is providing these job openings for you.

That’s three strikes against homejobplacement.net, and they’re out.

But why are they working so hard to distract you with irrelevant and misleading information? It may be because the Akron Better Business Bureau gave them an “F” rating.

NSA Technologies, LLC, the company rated by the Akron BBB, lists Home Job Placement as an alternate business name. NSA Technologies has received more than 130 complaints since it opened, with more than half of the complaints from the past year filed because of their refund practices.

Refund practices? That’s right, homejobplacement.net is not a site posting job offers, it is a site selling a certification program. After you pay for their one-day program, you have a little-known certification that opens an uncomfortably small door for you. If you don’t want to take my word for it, you can try the program, but good luck getting a refund if you aren’t satisfied.

Am I unreasonably biased against this program? Are there actually a large number of jobs out there that require you to get an auction listing agent certification? If you have worked as an auction listing agent—or if you exclusively hire auction listing agents—I’d love to hear from you.

Stacy Lewis

Stacy Lewis is a stay-at-home mom and proud single mother. Her true love is her baby boy Mason, who is her inspiration for life. After getting laid off from her position as a legal assistant in 2007, she turned to the internet as a way to support her family. Unfortunately, the road to success was rocky and her first 18 months brought nothing but credit card debt, financial stress, and one "get-rich-quick" scam after another. Finally, after almost 2 years of struggling, she was fortunate to find a great mentor who took her under his wings and taught her what it really takes to succeed online. Ever since, she's been blessed to generate a full-time income from home and views every day as an opportunity to inspire others with the same goals. There is nothing that makes her happier than being able to give back and help others!
