  • Yes, we have posted many jobs on there for the company I work for. And we have found alot of good reliable people to work for us.

  • I think so. I saw lots of respectable local companies listing positions for hire on there when my dh was looking for work.

  • yes but dont trust any "get rich quick" ideas, work at home ideas or the ones that are listed "anywhere" as a location.

  • Thanks for the heads-up with asking this question and for everyone answering it! I had no clue that Craigslist could be used for jobhunting and I will have to try it now. I appreciate this post - thanks again!

  • I would be VERY VERY VERY careful. The only companies I've known to use craigslist were ones that paid in rubber paychecks. I'm sure there *are* legitimate companies that also use it. is a great clearinghouse for all job sites.
