Mommy Jobs Online (MJOL) Review: What Was Found Out

A lot of people are finding that working from home is a great alternative rather than going to a location. One option where people can look for jobs from home is through Mommy Jobs Online.

I know that paying a fee for people who are in between jobs is probably out of the question, while some people may not be bothered by a fee.

In this Mommy Jobs Online Review, I’m going to let you know my findings and lay out some tips for you.

My Take

I know what it is like to search for jobs from home. I too at one time paid a small $10 fee for a lifetime membership for jobs that were completed for home.

This was a while back and they did have job listings. Most of the jobs listed that I saw, I wasn’t qualified to apply and a lot of them were outdated.

The good point I want to make about the job listings that I purchased is that the jobs listed that I was searching for were jobs and not so-called jobs that were some sort of business opportunities.

The jobs that were listed were mainly programming jobs, there were some call center jobs, but by far most of the jobs were medical coding and transcribing jobs.

Now that the Internet is growing, more companies are more susceptible to the work at home option.

Still, it is quite a task to find jobs from home, but I believe we are moving in the right directing and more people are working from home than ever.

Now I want to get into MJOL and let you know my findings along with tips that I think may help you.

The Initial Website


I normally don’t talk about the look and feel of a website, but when I landed on MJOL, the website was very hard to read.

I wear reading glasses now and the black background and Orange writing was quite annoying. I hope they do something about it.

I know it’s a rant and nitpicking, but I started getting a headache and had to just leave the site and give my eyes a rest.

What Is Mommy Jobs Online?


Mommy Jobs Online offers pre-screened database work at home opportunities for people who are looking for legitimate home-based jobs.

If you read any of my database reviews, I’m not a fan of paying for a database of info.

However, when I looked at some of the job opportunities online, some of these Jobs require that people go to Mommy Jobs Online to start the hiring process.

This made me dig a little deeper because I was curious why so many listings under MJOL required you to go to their website.

I also want to add before we get into the digging is that with Contract World, there are jobs available there too that require people to go through their website to obtain a job.

However, with Contract World, they DO NOT require a fee to sign up and apply for jobs. There may be training fees, however, you do not have to pay a fee to sign up and look at their job board.

When I looked At Job Opportunities


I looked at some of the jobs that required people to apply at MJOL. I saw a phone number on some of the job listings so I decided to call and I asked why do I have to go through MJOL in order to get hired?

A person said it’s required because they need to pre-screen people first before they can hire someone. I would have to pay an $85 fee first for that specific job criteria. They also said that MJOL is BBB accredited and has been in business for 14 years and all jobs are pre-screen.

The first initial feeling I got when I finish speaking to the person was that they did a pull for MJOL, meaning they were kind of promoting MJOL.

Okay, that being said, I knew I would have to do some deep digging.

What Are Mommy Jobs Online’s Fees?


A one time fee of $210 to get access to their whole database for a lifetime.
$85 to get access to specific job criteria.

All I have to say to that is, I got a bargain back in the day, Lol.

What I Dug Up


One of the first things that I decided to see is how long MJOL has been in business.


mjol years open


Now I’m not saying MJOL wasn’t in business for 14 years, but when I looked up their dot com name and went to the WayBackMachine, both sites coincide with a little over 5 years.


mjol business started


In BBB’s Website, it shows that their business started in 2/14/2003.

So what I decided to do is read BBB’s Rating Base.


BBB MLOJ Time Of Business


More or less what it said in the image above is that if BBB doesn’t get reliable sources regarding how long a business started, BBB goes by the time a business opened its file.

What I did next was I went to the search engines for info regarding MJOL.


MJOL Indeed site


I couldn’t find much except I found inside Indeed’s website, there was a listing 37 months ago and Indeed’s website has been online for 19 years.

We all know that Indeed has been around forever, you will find complaints, raves and all sorts of info about Indeed. That is natural because everyone will have a different experience with a service.

Other than that, their website seemed a bit consistent and the fees were pretty much the same except they offered a yearly fee for $150 four years back.

Why Is The Year So Important To You Evelyn?


First off MJOL raves about how they’ve been in business for 14 years, but that doesn’t mean they have been open for 14 years. What was going on 9 years prior, I couldn’t answer that.

I’m sure MJOL may have a great explanation, but I couldn’t find it online.

I Kept Digging


If you Google in Google’s search engine “mommy jobs online”, Google has a new feature that shows some of the job listings that MJOL offers.

(Note: You can find a number of job listing through this feature and Google will email you alerts for free. All you would need to do is search for a specific type of job you’re looking for login into your Gmail account and you’re pretty much set to get job alerts for free.)

I noticed that most of the job listings through MJOL didn’t say anywhere within their job description what companies were hiring.

What was displayed was the job title, description and what equipment is needed for the job. Then most of the listings would say something to the effect to go to MJOL’s website in order to apply.


mjol mtdesk

I did find one job listing through MJOL that had a company’s name for transcribing, however when I went to the company’s website, the results were a 403 so I went to the WayBackMachine again and found that the company is no longer open.

Why Is Researching Company’s Name So Important?


There are scams out there that will use a business name to scam people out of their money.

In the online world, there are so many works at home “jobs” listings. You want to know who is hiring YOU!

Just like how companies want to screen who they want to hire, you have every darn right to screen who is hiring YOU especially when fees are required to get hired.

Jobs usually don’t require a fee when you apply. There is nothing wrong with going to a company’s website to see if the business is still open and if they are really hiring people to work from home.

If a company wants you to go through a site like MJOL to get hired then you may be more inclined to pay the $85 fee if you feel it is feasible and did your research.

MJOL’s Testimonials


First off I want to say that some sites online have obvious testimonials that are not real testimonials. I’m not going to say that MJOL testimonials are fake.

What I will show you is what I noticed on their site. I also want to state that I’ve said on my site is that people shouldn’t take testimonials as a way to join anything.

If the testimonials are real, you will learn about other people’s experiences however, we are all unique and we will always have a unique experience when we try anything.


mjol wbm written testimonials

What I noticed, when I went to the WayBackMachine is that for 4 years, their testimonials pretty much stayed the same.

MJOL Testimonials video two


MJOL video testimonial one

In 2017 MJOL added video testimonials on their website. Two videos were published in August 2017 and Two were in September 2017. We all know that YouTube has been around longer than August of 2017.

I’m bringing this up because if a service has been in business for 14 years, wouldn’t there be more added testimonials either videos or written testimonials as the site is growing?

Yeah, you could read what others say if you search online like I did and some comments were good and some comments were not so good.

When I went to the BBB website there was one good review along with complaints.

What Was Said Said Within BBB’s Website?


When you read people’s experiences online you can get a lot of info out of it.

We are not talking about raving testimonials you may read on a website. Testimonials are great don’t get me wrong, but other statements whether they are good or bad can give you some info about what you’re paying for if a service requires a fee.

It doesn’t mean the service is a scam but it can inspire you to do further research to determine if you want to go further with a service.

If you read the statements made inside BBB’s website,


positive comment MJOL

One person raved about how they got 4 jobs within a 5 month period.


mjol the complain one

One complaint was how the person corresponded with MJOL regarding how they do their background checks. It appears that the person was guaranteed some sort of good vetting and the person instantly realized after they paid 210 dollars when they went to look through their list and instantly questioned their vetting process.


Mommy Jobs Online MJOL complaint two

Another complaint was regarding their pre-screened info. This person paid 85 dollars expecting a well-vetted list and when the person looked through their listing it wasn’t a quality list.

When you read these statements I couldn’t help but question their database quality that MJOL offers.

My first initial thought when I landed on their site that you’re going to a great place to find quality work at home jobs along with a company wanting quality employees.

Think About This


mjolcost

When you see job listings that say people should go to a certain website to apply along with a fee, People are not going to pay 210 or even 85 dollars expecting not to get a good high paying work at home job.

So I can see how people may think that they are purchasing an exclusive list and companies want good quality employees to hire people. That is why people may find the price to be reasonable.

When you read how someone landed 4 jobs within a 5 month period and their site says that people can make more than traditional jobs, why does someone need 3 other jobs within a 5 month period?

Is MJOL A Scam?


I wouldn’t call it a scam. I personally feel that you can find work at home jobs without paying a fee.

Even though MJOL offer pre-screen jobs, they still have job listings that are outdated. Also like I said earlier when I called the number, they told me that their reason for charging a fee is that they have to pre-screen people along with the jobs they have listed on their website.

That is all nice, but if they spend so much time pre-screening jobs and people, why not screen their database and get rid of job listings that are no longer in business!

What is the use of paying such a high fee of 210 or 85 dollars for a database of job listings that isn’t top-notch?

All In All

When you first read the job description, it’s natural not to look for a company’s name. It’s natural to read the job description to see if you fit the bill.

But once you find out where to apply and you don’t see a company’s name and the description directs you to pay a fee, further research should always be your next step.

When I saw job listing that required me to go to MJOL’s website to apply, I thought I was going to give a great review regarding their service.

I was expecting Company’s that use MJOL as a way to pre-screened people first before they apply because I assumed that a company wanted valid real people who were serious about working from home.

What I found out is that MJOL is more of a service that you can pay for at a high rate to sift through a number of work at home jobs that are pre-screened and some of these jobs are outdated or no longer in business.

You can easily go here and see if any of these work for you or Google’s jobs alert and once you get alerts within the job criteria you’re looking for, you can do further research from there.

Paying others to research for you can be a big miss. Especially when a high fee is required and you get data that is outdated.

  1. Mommy Jobs Online is a great resource work at home job hunt tool that is well worth the investment to join. I prefer paid sites just because the free ones are so saturated with millions of people applying for the same job as you are so it’s a needle in the haystack on getting hired.

    I joined MJOL and I love their site and they have the best variety of top paying remote jobs to work at home. This site should stop the bad name slandering just to get viewers to read their blogs and visit their site.

    • Hey Norma,

      Thanks for expressing your thoughts in regards to Mommy Jobs Online.

      I myself do this when shopping online for products and services and that is research other info first. That doesn’t mean a great or bad review will make my final decision. My decision is based on what I decide from the data I gather. That also applies when people want more data.

      Mommy jobs online is quite expensive to find work at home jobs. Flexjobs offers the same info and their prices are more than half of what Mommy Jobs Online charges.

      The jobs at Mommy Jobs Online are not vetted to the extend that they are current. People don’t just want the sugar coated side of what is offered, they want the info. When people are unemployed or are looking for other means to pay they their bills, getting a bang for their buck is important. They may feel that Mommy Jobs Online is the one or might be not.

      As for me bad name slandering, that is not my intent. When I looked at Mommy Jobs Online, I was expecting it to be a service that I recommend, but after my research, I was shocked and I let people know my findings.

      There are a number of services that are jobs or helping people make money online that I recommend after my research. It just so happens that Mommy Jobs Online isn’t one of them.

      I’m sorry you feel that way about my website, but that is not why I started my website, It is to help people.

      Again Norma,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I wish you the best,

      Evelyn.

  2. Thanks for this info. I was starting to get suspicious when there was not a cruise company listed for a cruise reservationist job. Are they also the same company called jobseeker onboard? It looks like that site also leads back to them and not an employer site to apply. It looks like they are trying to make money off people that are looking for a job!

    Reply
    • Hey Marie, I seen jobseekers onboard and if I remember correctly, It is a site that I was concerned about. It is on my list to review because I know that job seekers are out there seeking work.

      As For MJOL, they do that a lot where you are not able to see an actual website to get further details. With so many “job” claims out there in the online world, I personally recommend that people find the actual website.

      Sometimes these jobs are not hiring people any longer leading people to pay for a list that may not be as vetted as they claim. I feel that $85 is pretty steep compared to flexjobs.

      I really appreciate your comment and again I will look into jobseeker onboard. Wish you the best of luck, you can check out info here for opportunities. All the best, Evelyn.

    • I have had numerous problems with them and when I complained to the BBB. They said I wasn’t a customer, yet I have emails and receipts from them. A lot of the links they send you don’t even work or aren’t for jobs and when you contact them its always the same response go to the iob portal.

  3. Very interesting reading. Thank you. I did pay FlexJobs.com, though. It was $14.99 but I figured I could afford that. I cant afford $85 or $210. I can do more than one “job title”, like “Data Entry”. I could probably work as a Customer Service Rep, too but I feel one must do a lot of research about CSR jobs. I’m not a mechanic and could not tell someone how to rebuild their computer, Lol!

    Have you reviewed FlexJobs? I find that on that site, one really needs a DEGREE, even for Data Entry. Not for me, I’m afraid. I am going to try the Google thing.

    Thank you for your service.

    • Hey Sandy, I believe Flexjobs is a pretty good site. You can pay with a visa gift card and you can cancel as soon as you pay your $14 along with use them for a month. It’s a pretty fair website and I plan to write a review about them. With Google, you will find work at home jobs there, but from what I looked at, the problem is sifting through all those “fake jobs”, check out these opportunities I’ve listed here you may find one that fits your needs. Start with Sigtrack, because it’s a data entry job and it pays pretty good. I want you to apply there first because there are times they are not hiring and it could be a long time before they are hiring again. Don’t worry because I don’t get compensated for any of the jobs I’ve listed in that link I sent you. The other non-Investments services, I do make a commission on, those don’t pay well it’s just a way to make some extra cash. If you have any other questions Sandy, feel free to leave a comment below, my fingers are crossed for you with many Blessings, Evelyn.

    • Hey L.J, I would try calling them first and do everything you can to get your money back. If they are not willing to communicate with you, you may want to try and get it resolved with BBB.

  4. I saw a job listing for data entry. It wasn’t what it was cracked up to be. I paid money for nothing. I’m so mad.

    Reply
  5. Evelyn, so happen to land on your website when I saw a job available for transcribing. If I pay the $85 is it a sure thing that I will get hired? thank you.

    Reply
    • Hey Nina, You have a very valid concern. There is no guarantee that you will get hired after paying the $85 fee. You may want to check out here as well and see if any of these will help you out.

  6. Thank you so much for your great research about mommy jobs online. I saw a listing for a job and I felt $85.00 was expensive. I do not have much money to spare. I wasn’t sure what to make of the fee. I really need to earn money from home is there any jobs from home that doesn’t charge a fee?

  7. Hello Evelyn, I saw a job listing online. When I found out the fee for Mommy Jobs Online, I looked online and found your informative info. Thank You so much Evelyn, Grace

  8. THANK YOU so much for your hard work and publishing this, Evelyn. It was informative and answered ALL the questions I was wondering. When you change your mind about working from home, you’ll make a GREAT Private Investigator.

    • Hey Allie, you’re very welcome thanks so much for the compliment, wish you the best with many blessings, Evelyn.

  9. This site has no clue and posting unknown opinions. If you want to hear it from the horses mouth contact Mommy Jobs Online directly. I’m a happy customer and sites like this is a fraud to gain publicity.

    Reply
    • Sabrina, I would like to say that I’ve been looking for jobs online for many years. Prior to running this site, I never heard of Mommy jobs. I didn’t call the site a scam, I just explained within my review what people should look out for. If people want to pay $85 or more for a listing of jobs that they can find for free, that is entirely up to them, all the best, Evelyn.

  10. Thank you for sharing Evelyn. I too am looking for an online job while at home, and it is very frustrating to find one that is legit and where you do not have to pay.

    Reply
    • Hey Princess, have you looked at this article, When I find jobs that are legit, I will keep updating this article when I find other legit work at home opportunities. I hope it’s helpful to you, Evelyn.

  11. I loved this review! It was clear, thorough and totally made sense and for that I thank you. There was no way I was going to pay (nor could I even if I wanted to) their ridiculous fees. I always stay away from sites like these because a person can find just about everything they offer on their own for free with very little digging. Between the outdated lists and lack of customer service, I think that they just got greedy and are only focused on the fee generating. Sad.

    Thank you again!

    P.S. Investigate is spelled wrong (you have investigatge) below this where you have the search box, you should fix it when you can.

    Reply
    • Hey Paula, you are absolutely correct that people can find jobs online for free and I agree with you that the digging isn’t too difficult.

      As for Investigatge, LOL oops!, I will correct that, LOL. Thanks, blessings to you.
