Do some companies in America put up job vacancies online without disclosuring the companys name?

Some do over here, they appear as 'Confidencial'. I don't understand what they accomplish by having the candidates not know exactly which company they're applying to work in. 


@Saboo - yes! It makes me feel like it's an scheme.

    it's very common.

    Why? could be several reasons

    - they don't want people banging on their door or calling them.

    - it could be a replacement position and the person is not terminated yet or the resignation hasn't been announced.

    Has nothing to do with it being a shady company.

    You will know who they are if you are invited to the interview.

    No.  And it is NOT COMMON.  Only a dirt bag sob running a scam does that.  If you want a job off the internet, learn to use LinkedIn.  Why don't you know that?

    In America, there are NO rules about this.  A company/business can include their name or not...........  Their number one goal is to fill a position - so their name does not have to be in the ad.

    Some do.  They don't want a lot of people calling them.  That's why they're using an  agency in the first place.
