Employer FAQ

Q. What is GrooveJob.com and how can it help me find employees?

A. GrooveJob.com is the nation's leading site for candidates around the country seeking part-time, hourly and seasonal employment opportunities. Thousands of candidates register with us everyday to find great jobs and also take advantage of our career resources.

For employers, we are the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way to find candidates. We can help you find employees immediately by exposing your jobs to millions of candidates. And we do it better than anyone else!

Q. How does the Site work?

A: We market our site to candidates across the United States. Candidates can come to the site to search for a job by selecting their city and state or within a chosen mile radius of their zip code to find current job openings. They then apply online to the jobs they are interested in and the applications are e-mailed to you, the employer.

Q. How do you market your Site?

A: We reach candidates through a variety of marketing efforts, which include both online and offline strategies.

Online, GrooveJob.com pulls traffic from hundreds of search engines, web directories, and career sites.

Offline, we have established partnerships with thousands of high schools, vocational schools and college placement offices as well as strategic partnerships with the various Workforce Development offices throughout the country. We are also highly visible in publications that cater to the teenage and college-age demographic and have created relationships with hundreds of community libraries. We also attend job fairs.

Q. What type of jobs do you list on your Site?

A. We list only part-time, hourly and seasonal jobs. The job types range anywhere from working at restaurants, to marketing, to retail jobs, to jobs in the hospitality industry, to the military and government sector.

Q. Where are the applications sent?

A. It's really up to you. If you want all applications to go to a centralized location, we can do that. If you would prefer applications to go individual store managers or Regional Managers, we can do that too.

Q. How do we receive the applications?

A. Again, it's up to you. We can send the applications by email or you can also direct candidates to your own corporate website.

Q. Who enters all of the job location and posting information?

A. You will have access to the employer dashboard where you can manage your own job posts. However, we are also available to handle all of that for you. Just provide us a position description and some basic information and we'll do all the work for you.

Q. How long will I have to wait to get my openings up and running on the Site?

A. Typically within 24 hours.

Q. Do I have to sign a contract?

A: Depends on the length of time that you want to post your jobs. If you want to post your jobs for one month, then there's no contract to sign. Longer-term postings do require a commitment. Please call us at 800-814-8977 for details.

Q. Can we update and change information ourselves?

A. Yes. You can go in as often as you would like to add, edit or delete any information. Upon registering your account, you will be assigned a username and password. Once you have received these, you may use them to access your account through the employer dashboard at any time.

You can also see the response you are receiving through the employer dashboard. You can see how many times a particular job has been viewed and also how many times an application has been sent.

Q. How often can we make changes to our listings?

A. As much as you like! It's your job post (also called a slot) so you have complete control over the listing for the duration of your campaign.

Q. Why can't I search the resume database?

We have a page for that; basically we have strict privacy policies since we handle personally identifiable information provided by minors and teens.
