Interesting about Craigslist. I have never tried that. I'll have to give it a shot, I have tried everything else!

If you want to stay in retail go to the specific company website. They usually don't advertise outside of their own store.

For sales, try hcareers. It is mostly hotels, but there are sales jobs that may interest you.

i like indeed to find the job and then glassdoor to analyze the company, determine if the job is a fit, and/or prepare for the interview.

If you're referring to posting a Craigslist test ad, keep in kind only the Detroit listings can be posted for free.

You have to pay $25 otherwise.

I got a job off Indeed.com. Best job search engine out there in my opinion. Simple to use and pulls listings from everywhere.

Most employers haven't even heard of it or posted a job on it.


I only mentioned that one because the OP said he was looking for Retail type of work.

As long as you apply to the CL ads that include a email contact with the company name then it's fine


No company name or email contact then you don't reply
