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.

ZipRecruiter

  • 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.

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
