"Not the Top, Yet Provides Good Results"

What do you like best?

CareerBuilder Job Boards has allowed us to move much of our computer programming and call center activities to employees in the United States, instead of depending on employees outside of the US to take care of those needs. The pay rates are similar and we can have independent contractors fill those positions equally as well.

What do you dislike?

CareerBuilder Job Boards still comes across as "lower than professional". They have made progress in the types of employees and employment opportunities that are available, yet they aren't the highest quality, and I'm doubting the highest quality employees/employers don't post to their site. Their site isn't the easiest to use and is "clunky" in its operation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CareerBuilder Job Board is usable for most all types of employment needs. There are Accountants, Computer Programmers and Engineers, just as well as there are Truck Drivers, Sales Personnel, and Food Service Employees. It's a hit and miss website, not always providing exactly what is needed. Yet there is a large employee base who are seeking work.

"Okay if you are looking for entry level"

What do you like best?

I like that you can pull a report to show you what people of a particular background are titling themselves so you can create a sourcing strategy that will capture the most amount of possible candidates. I do like that the site will scrape jobs from our website, which makes it easier to post to their site. Our account management team is relatively helpful; they check in often, and even offer to assist with sourcing if we have found that we are having difficulty filling a role. I really enjoy that their search capabilities can use Boolean searching.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the candidate pool on this site for higher level roles. As a Senior Recruiter, it is sometimes difficult to see a reason to use this tool. Also, while sourcing for roles overseas, it can be hard to gain a large candidate pool. It seems like there is a stigma attached to this site that it is meant for entry level roles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think our Account Management team here is top notch.

"Solid Platform"

What do you like best?

I like that you are able to save job roles so I don't have to reinvent the wheel every single time I post. I also like that I can link to my own website so they can apply there. It is easy and quick to use and it probably is top 3 location my candidates come from. The team that is assigned to our account is super helpful for any questions that we have as well. They have even come on site and presented new features to us which is awesome because it's easy to miss out on things that make my job a lot easier.

What do you dislike?

I do find that the caliber of candidates vary- I could get an awesomely qualified candidate and I also could get someone who clearly did not read the posting. Either way brings more traffic and i am happy with that. Same goes for sourcings- if I am lucky a great candidate who is ready to be contacted is on the site or sometimes there are resumes months- years old.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that this is one of the top job boards that you should be posting to if you want to bring more traction to your roles and find good candidates.

"Great Response Time"

What do you like best?

The ease of use. You can create templates for the Jobs you offer which makes posting for the open positions very easy. You can set criteria, so candidates that do not have specific experience cannot apply.

What do you dislike?

If you do not categorize the job posting correctly it can be a waste. If people are searching for your company or position if it is not categorized and sub categorized it can through off anyone finding your posting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is great to for finding applicants that fit the position you are hiring for. You will receive and email and the candidates application when they choose to apply for your position

"Gets the job done"

What do you like best?

one of the things that we really enjoy about Career Builder is that its simple and easy to get the listing out and they do the rest. which helps to alleviate some of the stress related to hiring.

What do you dislike?

One of the only things that i disliked about using Career Builder , which ultimately led to us discontinuing use with them was their lack of responsiveness and we did'nt feel that they could keep up with our unique staffing needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely research , research , research to find out if this is something that right for your comapny.

"Results are poor "

What do you like best?

I like that they post to google jobs and use a social aggregator to pull candidates in the resume search.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how the customer services has been. Once i informed them the program is not working for our company they have failed to contact us back to resolve our issue. I also received feed back that we are not receiving applications because of out location, ads and what we are offering.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We are a Lawn Care Company and have very poor results with looking for Sales Reps, manager and lawn care technicians. At this time I would have to say if you are looking to hire for any of the above positions choose another job board. Don't sign a 2 years contract.

"CB review"

What do you like best?

CB is a well-known platform which produces a lot of candidates. Good for finding temporary or contract employees because most people on the site are unemployed.

What do you dislike?

CB struggles to provide quality candidates. Many of the candidates are recycled. We also went through quite a few account managers, which made it difficult to complete certain items. We also had a large issue with our Talent Network, which we later ended up dropping.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unless your company is hiring temp or contract employees, I do not recommend CareerBuilder Job Board. Take a look at LinkedIn or social media platforms.

"Decent Service, Not the Best Search Tool"

What do you like best?

It automatically scrapes from our ATS so you don't have to manually move job posts. It also has a section that will tell you what most people are using, which can be useful when hiring managers want to use odd or vague internal position titles.

What do you dislike?

We use assessments with our candidates, and on average candidates sourced from Careerbuilder are significantly less successful than candidates sourced from LinkedIn

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a good service if you can't get LinkedIn or are going for roles like bookkeeping or office admin where you're looking for career associate positions to fill

"Recruiter, uses CB dailey"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to click on one resume and from there you can just click next resume to sift through each candidate. I also like the user interface, very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

I wish I could flag a resume that is not a good fit, or that I already interviewed to not come up again in my search for a set period of time. As of now, all resumes come up if they fall in your search criteria. I also wish I could check back resumes that were posted 2, 3, 4 days back. At this point you can only search 1 day, then 1 week, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great tool for hiring in tons of different industries and skillsets.

"Great Job Board"

What do you like best?

I love that this site has a lot of users, which in turn increases our applicant pool.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how the site sometimes had loading issues. It also occasionally logs me out or switches my view to an applicant's perspective, which can be frustrating when I am trying to use the posting feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend reading your posting before publishing the job posting, as sometimes the text can be automatically edited or reformatted.

"Long Term CareerBuilder Customer"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of the platform. The resume database is easy to search and offers simple advanced options as well. Job postings take less than 1 minute to complete start to finish, which saves tons of time.

What do you dislike?

So far I'm impressed with the positive changes that CareerBuilder has made on it's platform, so nothing at this time.

"OK ROI"

What do you like best?

The tool is fairly easy to use and I like that it scrapes our careers site so we no longer have to manually post every role multiple places.

What do you dislike?

For a technology company, I feel we get better ROI from tools like LinkedIn and Glassdoor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would evaluate other options to make an educated decision. Think about the demographics your targeting, and there may be better tools available from other service providers.

"Good for Sourcing"

What do you like best?

I really like the amount of search options present. I can adjust salary level, experience, military status, etc. to narrow my search down and find great candidates.

What do you dislike?

The interface can be a little clunky. The status icons that show if you've viewed/sent correspondence to a candidate are very small, and I often overlook them and accidentally view a candidate that a coworker has already reached out to.

"Not Exactly Thrilled"

What do you like best?

The site is fairly user friendly and the ability to search using boolean terms is greatly appreciated.

What do you dislike?

CareerBuilder has been one of the main databases our company uses for sourcing entry-level candidates. However, as of late I'm constantly met with the aggravating "unfortunately some error occurred" pop-up while I'm sourcing resumes. If it's not that it's incredibly slow loading times for one candidate's resume. For someone who's trying to find potential candidates to fill openings immediately, it's incredibly frustrating to restart my search each time this occurs.

I appreciate the skins that a company can add to brand all of our job postings.

It would be beneficial if we could add more than 3 tags to a job posting.

Our reps have been very easy to work with and quick to help anytime that questions have come up.

"Careerbuilder is still a good resource. "

What do you like best?

Good candidate flow. It has a variety of candidate levels from entry-level to Senior management.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that you can't send emails to multiple people. I realize this is to prevent spam but sometimes I don't use Careerbuilder because it takes so long to email people.

Its very easy to use and it had many filters to save time for specific searches.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a option in the filters to removed already viewed candidates. OR be able to show "notes" before clicking on candidate profiles.
