  1. “PNC (for retail jobs), Target (for corporate jobs), and Chrysler (for engineering and product jobs) are using a little-known company for “pay-per-applicant” ads”

    I checked their site, seems they’re still in the “Call us!” or “Let us call you!” mode, rather than giving actual information on their site.

  2. 2 Steve,

    I’m sure they’re legit. But they don’t seem to be thinking of things from their customer’s perspective. It would be nice if they were the only solution people were considering, but they’re not and they won’t be. So instead of being yet another company that refuses to give any information on their web site, and which requires customers to go through innumerable sales calls and ‘demos’ which often poorly represent products and leave questions unanswered, why not just give some info on the site? I know back when I was looking up ATS systems the biggest pain in the butt part of the process was the lack of information and the need to set aside hours of time for demonstrations when I just wanted some simple questions answered.
