The experience has been great! I was so happy to hear that my current company is also using Accurate. I know the information will come quickly and will meet the high expectations we set.

ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter has in my experience always been much more practical for sourcing for lower-level, lower-paying roles. If you need to find general labor candidates, customer service personnel, etc., ZipRecruiter can really improve your resume count. However, if you are recruiting for technical or high-level positions, ZipRecruiter falls way short of competitors like LinkedIn Recruiter.

Pros

  • AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE OPTIONS! You can call, email, and/or chat.
  • The dashboard is very straightforward and allows for easy organization.
  • The report is super easy to read but even if you are unfamiliar there's a tour button that walks you through each section of the report to help you understand the layout.

  • Finding new candidates. When sourcing extensively with only one or two platforms, the candidate pool can run dry from time to time. ZipRecruiter typically had some new candidates to bring into the mix.
  • Easy candidate ratings. Trying to use a numerical scale can be clumsy. I appreciate the three thumbs rating option provided by ZipRecruiter.
  • Allows you to search by keywords. Most recruiting platforms provide this feature in their resume database, but it still warrants mention here.

Cons

  • There is no direct way to reach the verifications team and having customer service as a middleman sometimes adds a delay.

  • I would love the ability to sort by not only current location, but locations a candidate is willing to relocate to.
  • More filters. Comparing the filters available on LinkedIn Recruiter to what ZipRecruiter has to offer really highlights just how much more could be done.
  • Fewer "junk" resumes. ZipRecruiter seems to be rife with candidates in their database that either has no actual resume on file or a two-word resume. There needs to be some way to filter out resumes that are clearly lacking any useful information.

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 actually makes an attempt to get things verified. They do not just call 10x in one day and then close it

I'm not sure that there are any products exactly like ZipRecruiter, but we also use Indeed, and LinkedIn. ZipRecruiter definitely sources more candidates per posting than both Indeed and LinkedIn.

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.
