"The best mass recruiting system available!"

What do you like best?

Whenever someone is looking for a job, the first place the majority are going firs is indeed.com. I advertise every job opportunity we have on indeed. The system is so easy to manage, within just couple clicks you can publish a job add, see all the previous that were published, see all your candidate, your carreer page and everything else you need.

What do you dislike?

Well it is kind of the victim of it's own success, there is so many job opportunity on indeed now that if you don't chosse the pay options your job add will be so far in the list nobody is going to see it. The only other thing I would add, is an applicant managing system. Something customable, something that allows you to set your usual different steps before hiring someone and where you could place your different candidate within each job to easily see how many you have in interviews, or pending review or waiting for a return after an offer, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The customer service is good, they are available, my account manager do an amazing job with me.

"Fantastic solution for few annual job postings"

What do you like best?

- Templates for contacting candidates

- Status management of candidates

- Great features for free

- Optional paid ads at a per click rate

- The ability to add in additional users for posted jobs

- Interview scheduling with candidate

What do you dislike?

Lack of additional features (for which I'd pay for):

- Inability to delete/organize templates

- No additional/custom statuses, like confirming you've contacted candidates within a status

- The inability of limiting additional users for posted jobs to specific jobs or task delegation

- No keyword searching except on candidate name. No ability to isolate candidates based on explicit experience.

- We used to be able to enter candidates that came from sources other than Indeed. That's no longer a feature and it was useful.

- Inability to turn a job back on and have it re-appear in a recent search OR inability to copy a job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a larger company with more job postings, you'll likely need something more robust. If you don't have high turnover or more than 5 job postings in a year, this solution is hard to beat.

"Key Job Search Site in Career Related Work"

What do you like best?

I like that it's user friendly, usually yields pretty good search results, and is simple, yet aesthetically pleasing. It is easy to explain to students and alumni both, and has a large database of jobs. It is my go-to site when searching for a job for myself and for others.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I can think of is that it doesn't always yield super accurate results. There are some times when the jobs it compiles aren't exactly what we're looking for. But I think that's the nature of job search websites. I truly love Indeed and everything it has to offer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I work with students and alumni who are looking for available positions, so I do not use the functions on the site as someone who might be posting would. I use it from the front-end to search, so my experience is a bit different. But I utilize it in every appointment I have and it truly is the first resource we put in front of our students and alumni who are job searching.

"Best Job Site for the Buck"

What do you like best?

Indeed is very popular with job seekers so we receive more responses to our ads when we post on Indeed. The pricing model we use with them suits us the best and does not strain our recruiting budget.

What do you dislike?

As with most recruiting efforts, we receive many responses from people who are completely non-qualified and never should have applied to the posting. According to the Indeed pricing model, there is still a fee for those applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start small by assigning limits to how much you wish to spend with them. Then, if satisfied with the responses, increase the budget and cost per unit parameters if you wish. If you are no satisfied, change the ad to better locate the candidates you are seeking.

"Great Applicant Management"

What do you like best?

From start to finish, Indeed made the process simple and intuitive. We had two positions we were hiring for and several people who needed to review the applications. It was easy to keep the resumes separate and code the applicants so that someone could pick up where another had left off. We could also really easily track the applicants throughout the process. I really liked the ability to save email templates to make it faster to email people during the different stages of the interview process.

What do you dislike?

I do not have anything to complain about with the process and with Indeed!

Recommendations to others considering the product

We created one account and shared the login info with the people that needed access so that we could all work in the same spot. There is probably another way to do this, but it worked really well for our small staff to all see the same things.

"Ultimate Career Search Engine"

What do you like best?

Indeed is the Google of job searches. Not only have I personally been able to find and get linked to new career opportunities, I've equally posted my own positions (or had them bulled manually) to attract top talent. The ease of Indeed to "quick apply" I believe highly increases applicant traffic, and after getting setup with Indeed we absolutely saw more applicants coming in.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the vast reach of Indeed can attract and turnout a wide range of candidates. Specifically, candidates completely lacking experience, education, or other work authorization requirements. The quick apply is a blessing and a curse because it can allow anyone to apply in a single click, and there are absolutely serial applicants out there who will apply to everything. Some of the pay for clicks can be a little tricky to understand without proper training or working alongside a vendor rep.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's most important to ensure that Indeed service are compatible with your organizations applicant tracking system. This was the real deal maker in my organization's relationship with Indeed. Also, when having jobs posted be sure to adjust working titles to commonly used titles (i.e. Registered Nurse vs Clinical Nurse as my organization saw). As with all search engines common language and matching is key for seekers to locate your position, so abbreviated and less common language can backfire in how many views you get.

"Easy to use, not easy to get quality applications"

What do you like best?

Indeed.com is easy to use. I was able to post a job online with all required and preferred qualifications.

What do you dislike?

I was surprise to learn that we had to pay for our ad to be seen, and I did not like that we had to pay for its visibility. Ex: there was a specific cost for it to be seen x amount of times, and more expensive to see be seen more times than that. We are part of a relatively small industry for our area, so our visibility should have been greater based on search words.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to spend money.

"Review of Indeed for finding job candidates"

What do you like best?

The cost was by far the best feature! It is quite easy to use - uploading the resume was fast as was setting up the pre-screening questions. I was amazed at how quickly I started to receive resumes for both positions and I did find the quality of the resumes to be better than I initially expected. I didn't realize that so many people were using the program.

What do you dislike?

I didn't want to reply to the candidates through the system so I contacted them via regular email. I found the email addresses that Indeed assigned to the candidates to be really long and difficult. I'm guessing that is intentional but for me it was cumbersome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a low cost way to reach a lot of potential candidates Indeed may be a good solution for you.

"Gold Standard For Job Search"

What do you like best?

After posting my information on Indeed, my inbox and phone have been ringing off the hook with relevant recruiters and opportunities that get better every day.

What do you dislike?

Indeed has a lot of recruiters that seem to be reaching out in a scattershot fashion with canned emails and very low interaction until you're further along in the process. This can get very annoying as you may have to go back and forth answering questions about information that should be visible on your profile/resume before you even know what they're reaching out about.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For job seekers: be ready to get a lot of opportunities. If you're actively searching, dedicate a few minutes per day to following up with recruiters that found you on Indeed and ensuring they get back to you. From my experience, it appears that a number of the recruiters on Indeed are likely contacting lots and lots of people for one opportunity. Recruiters that find me on LinkedIn or via Dribbble/Behance/etc. tend to have much more personal, high-touch approaches.

"Greatest percentage of applicants"

What do you like best?

Since it pulls job postings from across the web, including other job boards and career sites, it ends up being our # 1 source of applicants. Sponsoring jobs is a great way to increase the exposure and I highly recommend it. The 1-click apply feature makes it even easier for applicants to submit their resume and it parses in the ATS.

What do you dislike?

When searching for a job, even if I type the exact title of a job I have posted, many times it is several pages down and the jobs above are barely related and don't even have the same title. Also, resumes that come through the 1-click apply often end up formatted incorrectly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. It is the best source of applicants. Sponsoring jobs is highly recommended as it increases exposure by having your jobs at the top.

"Indeed for Recruiting"

What do you like best?

As an HR department of one, the ease of posting, pausing, updating, and managing an ad is a huge plus as well as the ability to use the system to track and log applicants. However the biggest benefit is the knowledge that, when hiring managers post to Indeed directly, resumes are being logged and tracked by the system as a default.

What do you dislike?

Although I love the ability to ask qualifying questions of job applicants I am finding that many applicants are simply saying "yes" to the questions even though their resumes clearly do not support the assertion that they have x-years of experience or that the live in specific geographical locations

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have had great success with Indeed in some markets and not as good of success in others. We are fairly new users of Indeed but have had relative success so far. The only caution is that the cost for sponsored postings can be deceptive as the clicks can quickly add up resulting in posting through Indeed exceeding the costs of posting via more traditional sources.

"Easy, effective, and affordable"

What do you like best?

No frills. Indeed skips fancy functionality of other advertisers, but they still get the job done. This is a simple, efficient way to advertise for our company.

What do you dislike?

While the price is right and the no frills makes for an intuitive system - it's lacking in restricting access and reporting. Indeed has also become more popular for lesser-skilled positions. This means when it comes to filling higher level roles, less of those qualified applicants are looking on Indeed. Great tool depending on the quantity of roles you have to fill and the type of employees you are looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Caution if you have 20+ roles to fill. Managing them within Indeed would get very cumbersome. Also, understand the populations that are using Indeed to find a job.

"Been doing job searching in Hong Kong and USA"

What do you like best?

I like indded best is the filters. Very thorough. I can reach out to candidates whose contact information is no available on their resume, which I like that because I respect people's personal inforamtion. The job posting page is very flexible, there is no restriction in how to name the title or else. You can do it like an advertising, make the language very customizable to the comopany image and control the impression delivered to aplicants.

What do you dislike?

I do like the design of the page. It looks practical but dull. Sites like LinkedIn is more fancy, and really enjoy using that product. Email notification can get annying sometimes, people that are ot good match, but you cannot turn it off because you dont want to miss out anything. Should have more selections in customizing information received from Email Notifications.

"Recruiting Tool"

What do you like best?

When i was working in the utilities industry there was a vast amount of resumes on this job board. Now that I am in technology I tend to notice not as many software applicants are uploading their resume here. Indeed tends to be one of the last tools that I utilize when looking for candidates. We do however always post our roles on indeed and they tend to generate some candidates who are on indeed looking for a position and then applying to our roles because they saw it on indeed. I like that our jobs automatically get posted without any extra work. I also like that this tool is free. When i first signed up they did set a call with me which was nice to have someone I could ask questions to- I have not talked to them since but I am sure if I had questions they would be responsive

What do you dislike?

I don't think it is as successful for finding people in the software industry.

"User Friendly for both Job Seekers and Recruiters"

What do you like best?

Again, ease of use. I am able to search by a variety of different filters and save my custom searches. They will send me emails of new candidates daily that match my search criteria and for the most part, the candidates match very closely.

What do you dislike?

While they have a different payment structure (pay per click), it is very frustrating to get an itemized bill come the end of the month when we have to submit expenses. I have asked our rep and they have no way around it at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you speak with a rep about how to get the best use out of the paid options vs. non-paid options.

"Indeed Resume Search"

What do you like best?

Resume sourcing through Indeed is reasonably priced and there are new qualified applicants in our field and in our hiring areas. The standardized resume format makes the process more smooth.

What do you dislike?

Reading through resume after resume can be tedious and downright mind-numbing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Indeed has two platforms available for sourcing job seekers. I have experienced with both sponsored job postings and sourcing candidates with resume search. I have had more success (with lower associated costs) by utilizing the resume search. The downside is the time that must be spent on a regular basis to ensure a steady flow of qualified applicants.

What do you dislike?

I didn't find anything that I disliked about their service.

"Indeed - One of the best job boards for 2017"

What do you like best?

The ease of navigating and the quality candidates that I have received from Indeed versus other job boards. I think the higher quality and volume of candidates I receive is due to the ease of applicants applying for jobs. Applicants can upload their resume/LinkedIn and it quickly populates their application. The overall website layout is easy to navigate too, especially compared to Monster.

What do you dislike?

The search function on the hiring manager/company side for past applicants. I may be missing something, but I am not able to easily filter past resumes by date posted versus date updated. Therefore, a lot of the time I am reaching out to candidates who originally applied many years ago and are not longer interested.

Great tool for applicants and hiring managers! I highly recommend it versus Monster/Careerbuilder.

I like that Indeed is common so a lot of professionals get on there to search for jobs that fit their needs. It is not something that repels qualified professionals; it is a reliable site and people know this about Indeed.

What do you dislike?

Majority of Indeed is great, but I do not like the fact that as a candidate, it lets you know that the employer viewed your resume but never sends you a message.

Because of the simplicity, it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of resume searching. It seems to get buggy when utilizing boolean searching. The resume database could be easier to use with some more advanced searching capabilities. I do not like that it requires you to input a job description and other required information. Adding a job description goes against best practices of recruitment email marketing.

What do you like best?

1. You pay per click. So if a person clicks on your ad, you pay whether they apply or not.

2. You don't get a candidate's real email address... Indeed blocks most contact information. This makes it difficult to get in touch with someone without using the Indeed system.

I like the fact that you post a job for certain skill sets and you come across qualified candidates

What do you dislike?

I seem to find that at times when you post for certain skill sets you have a lot of unqualified candidates respond

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Indeed to other recruiters since it's an easy tool to find candidates.

"Easy to use, high visibility to job seekers"

What do you like best?

They automatically pull our ads, however, I have posted manually and it is an easy/quick process. If you want to have a "sponsored" job, they will give your ad a more prominent presence. Indeed has probably the highest visibility of all of the job boards.

What do you dislike?

Our job ad drops to the end quite quickly. When we did a "sponsored" ad, it was impossible to "nail down" the cost since they do a cost-per-click pricing which is very confusing and impossible to calculate - it seems a little like a scam to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are eager for your business

"Indeed - One Stop Shop!"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of job posts. The format of the pages was streamline and easy to follow, especially when I was pressed for time.

What do you dislike?

I enjoy the screening questions when candidates apply, however I've noticed that it does not restrict under qualified candidates from applying, which is unfortunate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely take advantage of the customer service team! They are fantastic!

"Great features for advertising jobs and reviewing candidates and largely free"

What do you like best?

It is free to post a job. Also, the features allowing candidates to be rated and sorted are very useful.

What do you dislike?

The site is regularly trying to get you to pay for enhanced job adverts, and I get quite a few sales calls telling me that I'm missing applicants by not paying for a sponsored job. But this is a minor annoyance to be able to make use of the free features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can't comment on the full paid-for service, but the free online job boards are great - give them a try, you've got nothing to lose!

"Great hiring website"

What do you like best?

I like that it’s more user friendly than Craigslist and more professional and that includes company reviews so you get the right candidate.

What do you dislike?

I disjlike the fact in order to use indeed to its full potential you have to pay for the service and “sponsor” it.

"Excellent tool for jobs"

What do you like best?

Brings a lot of candidates quickly and is easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Does Not filter correctly, you get a lot of non-qualified candidates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

you need to be very specific on your job posts, put as many filters as you can and understand you will get a lot of worthless candidates.

"Indeed Candidate Search"

What do you like best?

Ease of use. And Advanced Resume Search has good field entries to narrow my specific searches.

What do you dislike?

Years of Work Experience limits to a single selection instead of a greater span of years. Also, would like the option to purchase "block" access versus paying $1 per email transaction when finding a desired candidate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has been a cost-effective resource for me, the Corporate Recruiter, and my employer.

"Indeed for Employers"

What do you like best?

It is very quick to post a job, and there are lots of online resumes posted to look through for a candidate.

What do you dislike?

A $1 fee to contact each person who has posted their resume is reasonable, but it would be nice to have a free feature.

"Useful recruiting tool"

What do you like best?

I like getting the daily alerts of new individuals who have posted their resumes.

What do you dislike?

Noted above, sometimes it is just way off base when titles consist of more than one word.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep communication with the reps open and ongoing or one can get lost as they tend to focus on new clients.

"Ok but not a great alternative for integrating other software platforms"

What do you like best?

Good georgraphical coverage across Canada.

What do you dislike?

Not great for integration to other software platforms. Works but company holds you for ransom unless you purchase other paid services. They delay your integration

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Our Biggest Source of Candidates"

What do you like best?

Indeed integrates with our ATS and scrapes our jobs multiple times a day. When we need to feature a job, we send a quick email to our account manager and it's done. That easy!

What do you dislike?

Jobs posted over 120 days ago are not scraped by the system. You have to re-post the job, which is a hassle, but it will put your jobs back on the board.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sponsoring your jobs is an additional cost, but it keeps your positions at the top and gives it more visibility.

"Use Indeed to recruit candidates every day"

What do you like best?

I like the image Indeed has in the market with candidates. The fact that candidates have to accept a message in order to get a phone call almost assures the recruiter that the candidate is reliable and has a genuine interest in the position.

What do you dislike?

With that being said, Indeed is much more of a passive recruiting tool due to the fact that are no guarantees you will get responses and phone numbers to set up phone interviews.

We like the vast net indeed casts. It does capture a lot of people and keeps our company out front in our market.

What do you like best?

I enjoy being able to have all employment information and attachments in your accounts and be able to apply to most openings with just a click of the mouse.

What do you dislike?

The openings that dont allow you to use the indeed link to just apply but rather you get redirected to their site to then have to enter all your info in again. Not really an indeed issue but rather the process of that potential employer using the service.
