Welcome to my unbiased review of American Online Jobs!
If you’re on the hunt for paid jobs to do on the web, then chances are you’ve bumped into AOJ and you wanna know if it can be trusted, right?
Well, you’re certainly in the right place!
Because I’m about to give you the lowdown on the online job provider and reveal the truth.
So hang tight!
Name: American Online Jobs (AOJ).
Cost: Free (+ hidden fees).
My Score: 2/10.
Verdict: Not Recommended. Why?…
Because although AOJ appears to be a “job site” offering you web-based work on the surface, it’s just a load of old baloney.
Instead, it’s a portal to a bunch of extremely low-paying ‘GPT’ opportunities and some random product you’re enticed to purchase.
Furthermore, you’re supposed to get your own replicated version of the AOJ site to promote for affiliate commissions.
Which comes with some outdated and spammy training videos on promoting your site.
This is so the site creator(s) can pocket from you (via their affiliate links) and when you promote their job site.
I’m no expert on the online job front, but I’m pretty sure that’s NOT how the cyber job industry works lol.
But If you truly wanna make some moolah from trading your time online – doing surveys and various other tasks…
Without further ado, grab my FULL review of AOJ to discover exactly why it’s a no-go area that’s gonna waste your time…
What’s The Idea Behind American Online Jobs?
Very similar to another web-based job site I’ve reviewed called My Home Job Search:
AOJ is a directory that’s meant to fix you up with a job you can do on your computer or laptop from the comfort of your own home.
Once you land on the AOJ website, you’re immediately greeted by a bunch of quick and easy pre-screening questions to answer (Step #1).
And then you hit the “Apply” tab followed by completing Step #2 in order to set up your account.
So you can choose the perfect job(s) that matches your criteria.
A quick 5-minute job that sounds fairly straightforward, right?
Unfortunately, AOJ is a little misleading, and I’m about to explain why…
What Really Goes on Behind The Scenes of American Online Jobs?
Firstly, the pre-screening questions are just to give the appearance that you’re gonna be presented with real online jobs to apply for.
Except, there are NO jobs.
Well, probably not the ones you’re thinking of anyway.
The reason why the questions serve no actual purpose is that when you hit the “Click Here To Apply” tab:
You’re directed to a totally different site called InboxPounds or Global Test Markets which pay you peanuts for doing tasks like surveys.
But if this ‘Get-Paid-To’ “stuff” floats ya boat, then I recommend you check out Swagbucks for free. 😉
Whether you decide to join InboxPounds/Global Test Market (via an affiliate link) or not, you can skip that part and continue to Step #2.
But Things Take a Turn For The Worse…
As for the second step, you’ll create a free account with a site called “Online Flexjob”.
Which again, isn’t AOJ.
So it makes you wonder if the job site for Americans actually exists at all, right?
To me, it just seems like a “bridge page” to funnel you into all sorts of money-making crap via the creator’s “affiliate link”
Online Flexjob supposedly works in 3 steps:
- Create a Processing Profile
- Pick Your Job(s)
- Start Working
But after I did a little digging into Online Flexjob, it doesn’t provide any jobs whatsoever.
In fact, they want your details in order for you to buy and download some “anti-virus” software (via MaxBounty).
So they can pocket a nice affiliate commission from your purchase.
But Let’s Return to AOJ Itself, Yeah?
Underneath the Step #2 tab, there’s a bunch of free bonus money-making opportunities:
Inbox Dollars, Toluna, MySurvey, Opinion Outpost, Survey Voices, Opinion City, e-Poll, and Pinecone Research.
A couple of which also comes across as hyped up opportunities (see below):
Don’t get me wrong, there’s some money to be made doing surveys, in general.
But to earn anything worthwhile from surveys, you’ll need to spend plenty of time on the computer, in my opinion.
See what I did there?
Lastly, There’s a Handful of Basic Training Videos…
At the bottom of the AOJ website, your name and email are required to gain access to a member training area.
Which gives you 9 training videos from a lady named “Brenda” – whoever the hell she is when she’s at home.
The training covers generic information on referral marketing (aka affiliate marketing) and getting your own AOJ website:
Allowing you to earn affiliate commissions from promoting your AOJ site via ads on Facebook groups.
WTF?! – Affiliate marketing has absolutely NOTHING to do with “online jobs”.
Because it’s a way of building a sustainable income online from promoting other products IF done right which is way better than jobs.
If it’s something that tickles your fancy: Start an affiliate marketing Biz for free here.
But anyway, back to the AOJ training…
Spamming FB groups with ads, which is a no-go area in my book because it’s not an effective way of building a Biz.
I dunno about you, but I’m totally confused when it comes to AOJ.
Because first you’re led to believe it’s a “JOB” site which turns out to be a site sweet-talking you into joining ‘GPT’ opportunities…
And then you get your own AOJ site enabling you to earn affiliate commissions when folks join ‘GPT’ opportunities through your site.
But there’s just one slight problem…
No website is provided, strangely enough LOL.
Final Thoughts: Is American Online Jobs a Scam?
To be perfectly honest, American Online Jobs is confusing as hell.
In fact, it’s non-existent…
Because there are no job listings, it funnels you into totally different money-making opportunities, and you don’t get a website (as promised in the training) either.
Oh, and you’ll be enticed into buying some anti-virus software as well.
In my opinion, the guys behind the site should be upfront with you about how it really works from the get-go instead of leading you astray with the whole online job search “thing”.
The Bottom Line: Since AOJ doesn’t cost anything and you also get SOME value in the form of basic training videos, it would be unfair to label it a flat-out scam.
But on the other hand, it doesn’t deliver on its promises of offering you various jobs you can do online… just GPT stuff like surveys, etc.
So on that note, AOJ is not recommended.
But before you dash off:
If you do wanna make some money from doing surveys and other tasks online…
