Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter has proven to be useful in a variety of scenarios for us. Whether it is a high volume of candidates that we are looking for or one high level position, we have had success with ZipRecruiter. If we were ever having a hard time with a specific position, we could use a Traffic Boost credit to get more visibility for our posting. The resume database is also a great compliment for the posting when you need more candidates.

Cons

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.

  • ZipRecruiter appears to have no quality control. I find myself inundated with completely unqualified applications, which is part of the job, but it seems that ZipRecruiter appears to supply more unqualified/irrelevant candidates than many other competitive solutions.
  • ZipRecruiter is not the most user-friendly experience I've had. I can get done what I need to, but some click-reducing changes and simpler UI would be really helpful.

Results. The bottom line is the results we are getting. We are seeing not only quality applications, but quality hires that can directly be tied to our use of ZipRecruiter. The ROI is second to none - a simple and easy to use tool that is driving healthcare professionals to my various clients.

Have not had to utilize support recently, but in past instances they have reached out within 12 hours to help rectify any problems or answer any questions about features and functionality. The only issue I ever had with them was trying to clarify, when they previously advertised that they posted on 200+ job boards, if that meant that your job would for sure be posted on each job board. Turns out, by the way, that they only guarantee distribution, not posting

Alternatives Considered

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

ZipRecruiter is great for volume, experimentation, learning what's our there, and refining your own definition of who or what you're looking for. You can sometimes be inundated with unqualified applications which can be frustrating or even demoralizing, but I think you have to know what you're in for when using ZipRecruiter. Some of the other options out there are more focused on a particular industry, or might be smaller, lesser-known platforms which mean you have more curated results. It really depends what you're looking to achieve.

Return on Investment

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • It really made a huge impact on finding lower to mid level Technical resources. It increased our hires to an additional 2 placements per month using ZipRecruiter.
  • The downfall to ZipRecruiter is that it may lack a true applicant tracking service, since there are larger systems out there, staff may not rely on it as often.
  • It met the business objective which was to get our jobs exposed online through social media and other places.
