Over the last couple of months, I’ve come across numerous Job Spotter App reviews on various companies, but I stayed away from them because I was unsure how they worked (or if you could really make money off them!).
About a week ago I noticed a Indeed job search app on the market – now this is a company I know VERY well and I was pretty sure it was a legit setup.
So, in this Job Spotter App review I will be looking over Indeed’s contribution to the mobile device world – can you make money with their app and is it a legit setup?
Let’s take a closer look…
The Job Spotter App Review
What is The Job Spotter App?
The Indeed Job Search App is a program that allows you to take snaps of ‘Help Wanted’ or ‘Apply Within’ job signs and submit them for approval and payment from the company.
To make things (hopefully) a little bit clearer, here is the blurb from their Google Play page:
“Job Spotter is an awesome way to explore your community and earn redeemable points, all in the name of helping local businesses. If you spot a hiring sign, take a picture of it and the storefront, and submit it to Job Spotter. Submit enough photos to earn the most points, and we’ll give you an Amazon gift card in exchange.”
To be honest with you, I think it’s a pretty rad and unique idea for people to earn money off – you are helping your community, and in turn your country’s economy, whilst earning money at the same time!
You download the app, completely free of course, then install it on your device (available at either Google Play Store for Android or Apple’s App Store for iOS).
This is the process for making a little cash from the installed app:
- Take a walk around your local town or city.
- Find ‘Help Wanted’, or related job opportunity signs, and the establishment’s storefront – take a photo of both.
- Submit the photographs through the app platform.
- If your submission is approved – you will receive points that you can redeem for rewards etc.
Simple enough really!
Rewards Through The Indeed Jobs App
As far as I can tell – if you are able to download the app in your location then you have been accepted into the program. There may be restrictions on people living right out in the sticks, if you get my drift?
Each point you earn is equal to one penny on your reward card. Most submissions pay out between 5 and 150 points.
Once you have applied for your reward gift card, it usually takes a couple of days to receive it in an email format.
Job Spotter Complaints
Even though Indeed has a positive B+ rating on the Better Business Bureau, there are still some complaints floating about regarding their app setup…
People generally seem to be pissed by the amount of pay you get for submitting info on new job opportunities.
Think about it for a minute – how long will it take you to find just one of these signs? Has this sign been submitted before you noticed it?
Going through all this for a couple of dollars – not really the type of work I’d be looking for!
A lot of members have also descended on internet forums to voice their opinions on the pay structure – not everyone wants a gift card…most of us want cold hard cash!
I’ve also encountered a few complaints from past members regarding the length of time they waited for payment – apparently not everyone sees their rewards within 2 days of claiming them.
Is Job Spotter App A Scam?
No, I don’t think this is a scam, and I know the Indeed company pretty well (they have a good rep!).
It’s important to realize that this is a low paying setup – you won’t earn more than a couple of reward cards a month – tops!
Are you the type of person who is looking to fill in some time and get some exercise?
If so, this could be the app for you!
But, if you are looking to make a full time wage online, you’ll need to be looking elsewhere…
