The Gigats Employment Specialist

Can you really get a job through Gigats?  Probably not.  Gigats posts fake positions on reputable internet job boards.  I applied for the Newark Marriott job – or so I thought. I clicked on the job link at Jobs2Careers and was directed to an information page at Gigats.com where I was required to register all personal information before being directed to the job listing at the employer’s web site.  When I submitted the information form, I was linked to another page in which I was directed to call an “Employment Specialist to apply for the job. Although the employer’s logo (Marriott) appeared on each of these pages, I began to sense a scam. 

 I searched the Marriott and Rutgers University Career listings for the following positions that were available through Gigats. The positions do not exist.

I browsed forums that I found on google while searching for information on Gigats. Other applicants had not seen the red flags before calling the “Employment Specialist” at Gigats. Callers were told that they had to provide more information and some were promised employment within 30 days. The caller was then subjected to a sales pitch for online education courses that Gigats employees strongly encouraged the job seeker to purchase – with  no regard for the caller’s current education level or desire for continuing education.  Some callers complained that they receive tons of spam email, phone calls and text messages since providing information to Gigats.  The applicants’ personal information had been sold by Gigats to other companies. And some “employees” of Gigats posted comments, as well, to reassure the readers that Gigats delivers as promised.

What service does Gigats provide? I’m not sure.  But I really don’t have time to apply for  non-existent positions and listen to sales calls for online courses. This makes me wonder how many times I have applied for fake positions over the last few months using internet listings. I’ve never yet been called for an interview for a job I have applied for in this way. Gigats is a real company – the fraud is in the fake job listing.

    SO I CURRENTLY WORK RIGHT NOW FOR GIGATS!

    THIS SERVICE IS AN EDUCATION REFERRAL PROGRAM DISGUISED AS A “JOB MATCHING” SITE!

    THE PARENT COMPANY CALLED SOFTROCK INC GETS PAID BY SCHOOLS TO HAVE GIGATS REFER THEM LEADS TO SIGN UP FOR EITHER TRADE PROGRAMS, OR 2 YEAR AND 4 YEAR COLLEGE DEGREES.

    SOFTROCK, BASED OUT OF ORLANDO FL, HAS CANDIDATES GO THROUGH AN “INTERVIEW” PROCESS TO DETERMINE THE CANDIDATES JOB PREFERENCES AND QUALIFICATIONS AND THEN IS SUPPOSED TO SEND THEM AN EMAIL WITH LINKS TO POTENTIAL JOB OPPORTUNITIES.
    IT ALSO IS SUPPOSED TO HELP CANDIDATES WITH ANY EDUCATION “INFORMATION” THAT THEY MIGHT NEED TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS.

    IT ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL, THE PROBLEM IS THAT PEOPLE DONT GET THE EMAILS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP THEM FIND A JOB!

    I PERSONALLY HATE THE FACT THAT I AM INVOLVED WITH WHAT IS A DOWNRIGHT SCAM FOR SO MANY PEOPLE THAT TRY TO FIND JOB HELP.
    I UNDERSTAND THAT FURTHERING ONES EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT TO BE SUCCESSFULL IN LIFE ESPECIALLY NOW IN DAYS BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF PEOPLES SITUATIONS.

    THE FOUNDER AND CEO AlecDifrawi PAINTS THE SERVICE WE DO HERE AS A GODSEND TO EVERYONE THAT NEEDS IT AND MAKES EVERYTHING SEEM WONDERFUL AND HONESTLY CREATES A WONDERFUL WORKING ENVIRONMENT BUT THE TRUTH IS IN THE PUDDING AND IT IS WHAT IT IS: A SCAM. I AM PROVIDING THE PARENT COMPANY’S CONTACT INFORMATION AS WELL AS THE CEO’S COMPANY EMAIL, SO YOU CAN USE IT AT YOUR DISCRETION WHETHER TO FILE COMPLAINTS/JOB SCAMS OR CALL IN AND DO A PERSONAL ASS CHEWING.

    BOTH WILL PROBABLY WORK FOR EVERYONE
