Craigslist has been working on a fix for a bug in its automated job postings that has left thousands of jobs vacant for months.
Craigslist has received more than 30,000 job applications since February and has been in discussions with companies that use the service for hiring since April.
But the company has not made any major changes to its hiring process in the meantime.
“Craigslist wants to be an employer of choice and we want to help them, and we’re working with them on a new process to help keep the jobs we’ve filled open,” a spokesperson for the company told Business Insider.
“We’re working to improve our hiring process to make sure we are as transparent as possible and to give our employees a better experience.”
Craitchat has received hundreds of applications for new jobs over the past month, but the company is still unable to fill many of them.
“It’s frustrating,” one job applicant told Business Insider.
I don’t want to see a system where I can’t get paid for my job, and I can get paid to not do my job.””
People aren’t getting paid, they’re getting screwed.
I don’t want to see a system where I can’t get paid for my job, and I can get paid to not do my job.”
Craigslist’s system has been under a lot of scrutiny in recent weeks, with reports of fake job postings being made on the platform.
The company has also faced criticism for having a high unemployment rate in recent months, as more people are unable to find work.
