ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter does have a large number of candidates and only seems to be growing. If you're looking for more general roles, I think it would be a useful tool. The more specific you get, the less likely it seems you get the right candidates. Most of the applicants I received from ZipRecruiter or applicants applying on their own were not even remotely qualified for the role. Additionally, although not an outrageous fee for companies that hire in large quantities, if you're putting up just 1 or 2 jobs a month, the price can be steep (especially with what you're getting).

  • It is a well-known product. More and more candidates select this as where they heard about our company. It's hard to ignore the fact that it's becoming a very reputable job platform. They do quite a bit of advertising, so I'm interested in seeing how it will grow.
  • Because it's grown in popularity, the candidate pool is quite large. Depending on your criteria, there are a lot of potential candidates to find.
  • There is a way to rate candidates using the thumbs up/down/middle options. I enjoy having this right on the platform, rather than having to make notes about candidates.
  • Fairly user-friendly - it's not the sexiest interface, but it's also not difficult to use, which is nice.

Cons

  • Need to be more open to suggestions from clients.
  • Need to get better customer service turnaround time.
  • Need more knowledgeable staff.

  • 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.

ZipRecruiter adds value and also the ROI is very high. If it works why change it. So far we see this product very beneficial and will continue to be an integral part of our business.

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 stacks up very well with the competition. We still use the competitors as they both provide a great return, but in terms of quality, they are top notch. From a volume stand point it all depends on the budget that is allocated, you are truly getting what you pay for - which a lot of other organizations cannot say.

  • I am only a personal user, we are not currently using it at my place of business, to the best of my knowledge.
