Who we are

Products, services

Monster pioneered the notion of helping people get more out of work by showing them that a better job was out there. We know the workplace has evolved—people want more control; they seek more perspective, and they crave more enrichment. We've evolved too. We've broadened our scope to reach beyond just job board functionality.

At Monster, we don't just sell better jobs, we help promote better lives.

Because, in the end, a better job is about much more. A better job is a better experience; an experience that leads to better possibilities, better opportunities, better relationships, better perspectives—all working together to improve life along the way.

Simply put, we want to inspire people to improve their lives.

Preferred majors/degrees

Students and New Grads

Imagine an internship that offers real-life exposure to the corporate world! The Monster Internship Program is for college students who don't want the typical internship experience ... the busy work, the “fluff” assignments, the feeling that you're really not learning anything.

For 11 weeks in the summer, you'll be an active member of the Monster organization. You'll be assigned specific goals, as well as individual and team projects, that have an actual impact on the business. Expectations are high for our program participants. You're considered part of the team, and are required to contribute as any other team member would.


What we offer

What is special about working for us?

What distinguishes Monster from its competitors? Vision, energy, creativity. And the fact that we encourage every employee to unleash her or his potential. Nobody knows better than we do what it takes to grow, develop, enhance and advance your career and your life.

How would we describe the company culture?

We encourage collaboration, embrace innovation and believe in the importance of work-life balance.

At Monster, we are united, but not uniform. We view diversity in our own workforce as not only a strategic advantage but as a driver of great performance, a source of personal and common achievement and essential to our growth as a company. Reflecting those we serve, the Monster workforce is a global mosaic of talents, knowledge, insights, experiences and skills. We realize that company success depends on representation of the greatest possible range of needs, cultures, desires and values.

Here, we continue to celebrate the many differences that make each of us unique, and know that it is these differences that help make Monster a successful enterprise. It is our ongoing goal to create a culturally aware workforce that mirrors the makeup of the interconnected world in which we live and in the process create new ways of thinking and new ways of creating opportunities.

What else should applicants know about us?

Our Global, Giving Community

Whether supporting innovative programs or volunteering time, Monster and its employees are committed to being involved charitably around the globe.

As the leading global online career and recruitment resource, we believe we can strategically utilize our time, talent and resources to benefit programs and people in the communities in which we live and work.

Monster supports a variety of philanthropic and community-oriented activities at the local, regional, national and international levels. We focus our charitable investments on those programs that closely align with our business goals and objectives and are focused on the areas of education and career development/training.

Monster's Veterans Hiring Program

Monster's Veterans Hiring Program gives veterans the tools to transition the skills, knowledge and experience gained in the military, to a successful corporate career. We've found that sales and customer service are areas where veterans excel, and we actively seek them out for these roles. The ability to lead, multi-task, work in a fast paced complex environment and think and act quickly, are the key characteristics we look for in candidates for these positions.

For veterans who've had minimal work experience outside of the military, Monster offers mentoring. Pairing an experienced veteran with a new hire helps transition that employee into the corporate world, and promotes a fast track to leadership positions down the road.

Reviews - What employees say

Company culture

Everyone talks about leaving, hating it here, and the only reason people stay is because they are waiting for the long term job because they never want to end up at a place like this again. Senior Managements main goal is to take money out of sales pocket any way they can and they're not shy about it.

Support from Management

Management just listens to the SVP who does not care about sales Read being happy or making money he just hides in his corner office trying not to get fired by the Randstad company who acquired us

What I like about the company

At a micro level, the work we do positively impacts peoples lives and at a macro level we positively impact and support business and economic growth... It is truly rewarding work.

What I dislike about the company

Historical missteps have created present day challenges... Monster's business has evolved and at times it can be very challenging to overcome past history and perception.
