I found my last two jobs on CL, my brother and sis-in-law found their current jobs on CL… keep in mind we’re all in LA, but personal anecdotal evidence shows that YES, you can find legit jobs on CL.

I found my current job on craigslist. Its a decent position, it pays okay, and I’ve been here for going on 2 years.

I found my job on Craigslist, funnily enough, I actually posted the ad to advertise myself. I’ve been working there almost four years now and couldn’t be happier!

I got a few interviews off craigslist ads, but that was after responding to a few dozen ads. I didn’t ever get hired from any of those interviews though.

There’s just so many applicants through craigslist that they pretty much get their pick of the litter. There was always someone more experienced than me who got the job I interviewed for. 

Not saying you shouldn’t try, but be aware there’s a lot more you have to do to stand out when applying for a craigslist thing

My first two jobs out of college were from Craigslist ads.  The third I found on Craigslist and followed their link to apply directly through their website.  Of course when I apply to jobs I research the companies and check reviews, etc to make sure they are legit and not a scam for your personal info.
