Saw a job listing, tried to go through these guys' online Apply routine. You have to submit a resume. You get no confirmation that your resume actually reached the (identity not disclosed) employer. But you do get an email with a critique of your resume. "This thing is horrible, nobody will ever hire you unless you fix it." They'll do that for you for $699 to start.

Simultaneously, you start getting phone calls from them. They don't ask for permission when you apply-- they just take your phone number off of your resume and start calling. Aggressive and somewhat sleazy business model in my opinion.

Questionable business practices

Don't sign up for this service! They are nothing but criminals. I've filed a claim with the Better Business Bureau. They charged me for 9 months of "back service" despite the fact that they claim to charge monthly. I thought the account had been cancelled months ago and then a $270 charge shows up! When I called to complain I was hung up on and basically called a liar. Nasty, rude people and they haven't done anything to help my husband find a position. No calls, no emails other than in the initial 3-month trial period. No wonder he thought his subscription was cancelled. Their CSRMs blamed the "billing issue" on Discover and said it wasn't theipr problem. DO NOT SUBSCRIBE!

I believe this company is a SCAM! first off, i think they are on the 5th floor not the 7th. I was actually in San Diego in July and had to finish my cover letter review. So i scheduled a meeting with the Chick that was supposed working for me and the office. I show up at her office in downtown San Diego 5 minutes early. I was told she was at Lunch and should be back soon. by 5 minutes after the meeting time, i asked the secretary to call this Chick and make sure she new i was there and to find out where she was = i can always go to a coffee shop or the restaurant where she was having lunch and meet her. well the secretary couldn't get ahold of her.

I asked if miKe o'brien was in, and the secretary told me he was working at home and barely comes in.

About 10 minutes later, this buff guy comes - thinking he's going to intimidate me by his size, NOT!. i explain again to this man that i'm there to see this chick (name withheld) and that perhaps i should see Mike O'brien. This other guy then shows up telling me he's Mike O'brien. he didn't look like the picture that was posted on linkedin but i took his word for it. He was more concerned about the possibility of his liability insurance not covering a meeting with an employee by a client on his premises. He didn't care that his employee didn't show up for her meeting, and didn't call to say where she was at. I then asked him about meeting with the first person who started with me - who had gone on vacation with out a word in communication and it was me that bugged them until i got what i needed - my rewrittten resume with mistakes that needed to be fixed and to this day hasn't contacted me. he then said i have to check the meeting program we have - i suggested he call her directly since he is the CEO - he has that power - but he refused by saying - i have to the system we put in place to find out her availability.

he then repeated several times that his insurance policy didn't cover meeting clients at his place of business - i call this Horse Sh*t... what business can't have clients to their place of business? i also pointed out that there was a conference room right there in front of the front door to the business. this left him speechless. he then had to change the subject and ask me about some of my experience.

I asked him since his employee wasn't available, why don't you meet with me and we can go over my cover letter with me so we can finish it up? he told me that that wasn't his expertise and that is why he has the employees do that that are much better than he... okay so if that is the case, the he should have found one right there to meet with me if the one that scheduled the appointment didn't show up... he instead insist i leave because his insurance policy didn't permit me being there.

I think he's afraid people will find out he's a scam and wants to steel people's money. He asked for my phone number - i gave him my personal card - and he promised someone would call in an hour. i waited outside for that phone call for 1 hour and 2 minutes... no one called.

a week later, the chick emails me asking to set an appointment. I emailed her telling her that i can't do business with companies i don't know and can't trust and that her action was appalling as well as her CEOs. we'll see what her response is.

I would recommend STAYING AWAY from this company. they will steal your money and not think twice about it.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Unfortunately we are stuck with 3 months of bills from Climber.com. We had kept the credit card in a drawer, struggling to pay off the balance while unemployed and unaware that our account was being billed by climber.com for 3 consecutive months. To this day we don't know how how climber got our information. We did sign up for Ladders for $40 as well as Resume Rabbit distributon service for $40 and had never heard of Climber.com until we saw our credit card bill. What we think might of happened is a Climber's pop-up window came up during our enrollment process with either Ladders or Resume Rabbit. We are not sure. Anyway, trying to find out from customer service was a nightmare!
We received a short and rude attitude from Aubrey (the customer service rep.)
telling us it was our fault that we were billed due to not canceling a trial period we never even knew we were on and that she was not going to refund anything. We asked to speak to her supervisor due to her unwilliness to send us any back-up to her statements. She refused to transfer us or give us the name of her supervisor. We were able to find out the name of the VP by reading various other complaints on the web. We wanted to get some answers and backup to our enrollment but Nick Jimenez, the Executive Vice President, provided us only with an arrogant email which told us of his "resentment of implying Climber.com of running an unscrupulous business."
For those considering signing up knowingly: Buyer BEWARE of the lack of customer service and actual assistance finding a job or answers to your questions. We had never been contacted by this company during those months billed, no phone calls, no questions, no services rendered of any kind that we were aware of while we were being billed. We do know that many companies had access to our our partial profile and resume from the Resume Rabbit service. We never had a complete profile with Climber. We also, tried to go through our credit card to get answers from Climbers CEO, again, we were unsuccessful. Nick Jimenez intercepted our attempts once again to have the CEO get back to us.
Out opinion in a nutshell " If you see the name Climber.com: Run!!!!!! otherwise THEY will take the money and run!"

***By the way we did find a job by applying through a FREE job board! There are many free ones to choose from.
