"Great new job posting and job seeking program"

What do you like best?

When I am seeking new jobs, Zip Recruiter makes it very easy to find them and weed through them quickly. I like to results that I receive through this service better than others such as Monster.com and Indeed.com. You can sign up to have jobs sent to you when they become available. It's not overwhelming, like some of the others.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything to dislike yet, except some of the jobs are very low-paying minimum wage jobs that just happen to have some search terms in common with the technical jobs that I am searching for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try! I understand it is perfect for small and mid-size businesses to post jobs on to attract the best applicants. For job seekers, it can't be beat.

"ZipRecruiter Just Okay"

What do you like best?

I liked that ZipRecruiter weeded out a lot of the spam applicants and I was able to search for specific qualifications in the positions I was recruiting for. This cut down on a lot of time having to skin through resumes of under-qualified applicants.

What do you dislike?

I did not see a large number of applicants in general. ZipRecruiter markets itself on providing employers top job seekers with a streamline way to filter through applicants. However I don't think ZipRecruiter is enough of a household name to warrant paying for the service. Most people I have talked to have never heard of the company and the most common answers were Indeed and Monster.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare pricing with other recruiting websites that are more popular. You might have to pay more but it may be worth it in the long run to have an account with sites that are more well known.

What Job Boards solution do you use?

"Great for Certain Areas of the Country"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to post. It takes about 2 minutes to post a job. If you don't have an Applicant Tracking System this would be a great tool as well, but I use a separate ATS.

What do you dislike?

At first, I selected "allow people to apply without resumes" and that was a mistake. I got a ton of people that just submitted a name and phone number. I did not expect that many applicants looking for a role would do that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are recruiting in the Northeast or Midwest I have seen great applicants in those areas. The Southeast has not been as successful.

"Used the Free Trial--and probably will leave it at that."

What do you like best?

The customer service was excellent. My rep helped me post the position and gave me a quick impromptu tutorial without making me go through a product demo.

What do you dislike?

When posting the position I was asked a few times to post the salary range. My company does not post our salary ranges online, its just our practice, but I was told over and over that I probably would not get good candidates unless I posted the salary range. It was a little discouraging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Again, great customer service

"Plenty of Job Applicants"

What do you like best?

The best part was that I could email and text applicants and track them along with pulling details into spreadsheets

What do you dislike?

It is a bit costly so you want to be creative with your job ads

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you have an employer account you will be given a direct account rep and you need them to make any changes to your account. Sometimes it was difficult to get in touch or an answer from our rep.

"Zip Recruiter Review "

What do you like best?

Zip recruiter is great when it works properly. It can save time with finding resume but I do have a lot of problems with it

What do you dislike?

It really bothers me that there is not a flip view to view resumes, it takes a lot of time to open the resume and then click back to search results for the next resume. Also I do not like that I can't paste my whole booleen search because at lot of the candidates that come up in my search are not retentive. I also don't like that I can't copy and paste the resume into Bullhorn but I have to download it first and save it. It just wastes more time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zip can be helpful but for me it is more of a last restore when I have run out of places to look

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At this time I feel like zip waste's more time than it actually helps but if they changed a few things it could be more useful

"Creative Recruiter review"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use interface, it's very easy to edit current jobs, and have them posted live automatically. I like the amount of people this tool reaches out to, and mostly qualified candidates respond.

I do like the thumbs up, thumbs down feature (thumbs to the side too!). It's an easy way of saying yes or no to a candidate.

What do you dislike?

The way it makes you look through every candidate, and how they don't disappear after you've rejected them, in the view candidate tool. I also don't like that there are work arounds to the mandatory questions you ask.

Another suggestion, in the thumbs up, thumbs down, the thumbs down should reject the candidate (and take them off the view candidates area for good). It'd be great if it automatically rejected the candidates too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are responsible for helping large organizations find creative, digital, and marketing talent, so more access helps our business and theirs, while helping people find jobs.

Zip makes it easy to manage the job posting process.

"One of my Best Job Boards of 2017"

What do you like best?

I get Job alerts just about everyday, and I get Jobs that actually match my skill set and not Jobs that I don't have any interest in or that I am just not qualified for. And last of all, my Suggested Jobs that Zip Recruiter saved automatically, are perfect, and all of in my field of interest, which is Customer Service.

What do you dislike?

I don't have anything bad to say, except, I wish I would have known about ZipRecruiter years ago.

"Seemed to attract entry level candidates"

What do you like best?

Received several candidates through this source

What do you dislike?

The experience and educational level of the candidates was very entry level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I used the free demo, and I continue to receive marketing materials to try ZipRecruiter for free, but when I go in to sign up, it won't allow me another trial period because my email address has already been used. I completely understand not to allow multiple trials, but why send me additional promotional materials with the free trial information included.

"Agency now Corporate Recruiter"

What do you like best?

Stylized resumes allow me to find information quickly. Prequalification questions for submission excellent.

What do you dislike?

Resume database search needs several more options for filtering for resume search - salary, geographic flexibility, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"LOVED IT!"

What do you like best?

I like how well this product works for you while you are not actively sourcing. We have an extremely small recruiting team here and we are starting to grow very rapidly. Given that, ZipRecruiter is an incredibly useful & easy tool to have in your toolbox!

What do you dislike?

Not much, really. The only thing I had trouble with was customizing each req. However, after speaking with our rep Daniel, it was easy to fix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Small recruiting team and little to no time to do any sort of outbound sourcing. This is great for solving that problem.

"Excellent bang for the buck."

What do you like best?

With one posting, you can get your jobs out on over a hundred job boards, including SimplyHired, Glassdoor and the ZipRecruiter job board (which is becoming a decent board itself). To be fair, many of the 100+ job boards ZipRecruiter touts are small, niche and you've probably never heard of them, but the few big boards make it worth the price of admission. The resume database is a great tool as well, allowing you to instantly view resumes and contact information for candidates (though the new search functionality makes it a bit annoying for boolean users). The backend and administration are intuitive and it takes no time to get up and running.

Another one of our favorite features is the Job Widget. The Job Widget allows you to just copy and paste a snippet of code on to your website to display all of your ZipRecruiter positions, if you're looking for a quick and easy way to get your job listings on your website, it doesn't get any quicker or easier than the Job Widget.

What do you dislike?

Once upon a time, ZipRecruiter counted Indeed among their arsenal of job boards. It was one of the factors that drew us to ZipRecruiter in the first place. However, a few years ago ZipRecruiter cut ties with Indeed. Immediately after, the quantity and quality of candidates decreased. Indeed is the largest job board/aggregator out there, so it was a huge loss. Fortunately for ZipRecruiter their service is enough of a bargain that it was worth staying on.

I will say that the account managers at ZipRecruiter will constantly try and push their "TrafficBoosts" on you, which are in no way worth the asking price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do a free trial and see what your results look like. Also look into posting on Indeed (free or sponsored) and compare the results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Job postings on multiple job boards, displaying open positions on our website, searching for candidates in the resume database.

"Fine, Basic"

What do you like best?

Ziprecruiter is, to me, one more job board. It has yet to differentiate itself in any way from indeed, monster, etc. It performs its basic functions well, but I don't know why it's used over anything else. It's automatically linked with our ATS, so we log in and will post there automatically.

What do you dislike?

As I said - I don't see any difference between ZipRecruiter and any other job board site. They need to do some real work on what makes them different and how they stand out in a huge crowd of job sites. I don't think I ever thought to go to ZipRecruiter on my own, without being linked for some other reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Figure out what it is that makes them special, or push them to find out for themselves.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working in a hyper-growth business bubble right now. Our business is skyrocketing and we are trying to hire an enormous amount of people at once, while also ensuring that they are the right fit for the team and for the organization.

"ZipRecruiter - Greatly improved results! "

What do you like best?

We have the Pro Team Plan. It fits our need for multiple brands (hiring companies), resume searches, job postings and it feels just like an ATS.

What do you dislike?

My criticism is on the resume search side. I'd like to see more filters to narrow my search and more ways to sort though results.

"ZipRecruiter"

What do you like best?

I like being able to get on the site, make a posting, and get off the site within 30 mins. It is extremely easy to navigate the site, and make a posting if you are prepared with your job description.

What do you dislike?

There could be more options for after the job description field that are customizable. For common lower end jobs it would be helpful for canned job descriptions to be available, either for free or for purchase. Also the ability to customize those job descriptions for actual job posting. The site overall doesn't need improvements they have done a good job with the easy with using the site.

"Great tool to use for recruiting"

What do you like best?

You could set it up to have new resumes that had been posted to ZipRecuiter emailed right to you, so you didn't have to sort through lots of resumes that weren't what you were looking for. It made recruiting much easier.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like the sales calls we would get occasionally always trying to get our company to upgrade our product.

"Not the best for tech recruiting"

What do you like best?

The ease of posting jobs is great, definitely gets to every single job board.

What do you dislike?

Your posting goes to every single job board; which in turn, doesn't give you the most qualified candidates. Most of the applicants, I sifted through and passed on without a screening.

"Zip recruiter"

What do you like best?

It is very user friendly and not difficult to manage the program.

What do you dislike?

I have found that zip recruiter is not very effective as an ATS or recruiting software. Not enough candidates have an account or post their resumes there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zip recruiter needs more marketing to get their name out there and to be able to compete with other resume databases/applicant tracking systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

N/a/ No longer using zip recruiter.
