ZipRecruiter is a great platform for entry/low-level positions as it's a very popular job board that can stretch to thousands of potential applicants. When it comes to more senior roles, because it's incredibly easy for anyone to apply, it's time-consuming and difficult to find a "needle in a haystack" for an open position

ZipRecruiter

  • They make the process of posting positions relatively easy. While there are plenty of details to help round out your job posting, the UI is simple and easy to use. Sharing to company social media is available as well.
  • Their dedicated account managers are extremely helpful and usually available to speak with you right away.
  • The pricing packages and flexibility of payment options make it an attractive option in this space.

  • Quality of candidates - one of the reasons we stopped using this platform is the lack of quality/qualified candidates. ZipRecruiter has an option where candidates can one-click on a type of job and their resume is posted to a variety of roles. These tools tend to make recruiters cringe, as resumes are splattered across job postings that aren't truly related to their skills. More filters for job applicants would be incredibly helpful, especially as the platform grows!
  • Price - for smaller businesses that don't hire hundreds of people, the price seemed a bit high. It just wasn't worth it for us.
  • Overall, just more ways to filter criteria and candidates. I struggled with finding filters based on location and/or if candidates were willing to relocate. We had candidates applying from all over that had no intention of relocating.

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.

ZipRecruiter is very user-friendly and is extremely reliable when searching for new talent. There are numerous features to help you when you have questions about a posting or your profile. The filtering process is awesome and you have so many ways to find the right talent with the screening questions provided by ZipRecruiter.

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

ZipRecruiter is great to use for job postings and searching candidates. However, you cannot upload and manage candidates in the same way as Microsoft Dynamics or Workable. As job board access, it is effective, but as an ATS, it is not as useful. I would recommend using it in tandem with another software

  • We have hired some fantastic candidates through ZipRecruiter. Our ROI, in that case, was a quality hire for our clients.
  • We have spent (in the past, especially) a lot of time sorting through resumes of candidates that were unqualified. The negative impact here was the loss of time sorting and responding to unqualified applicants.
  • We use their sourcing tool frequently to search for candidates with specific keywords. Over the years the search parameters have expanded, and it has allowed us to hone on in specific skills a bit easier.
