Indeed Resume has been well suited in areas where there is not a lot of traction or candidates to apply. It has been less appropriate in heavier areas where there are many more candidates available to apply on their own without the invite or having to search for their resume.

  • It uses boolean search functionality, which allows me to target specific candidates
  • I like that it shows me how long it's been since someone has been active on Indeed
  • The messaging functionality to reach out to candidates and have them respond back to you is very user-friendly

  • I find it does not always recommend the best resumes to invite to the job we are recruiting for, based off the experience needed or job titles in the candidates resume
  • I don't like how invites don't roll over into a new month if you don't use all of them in a said period of time.

For at least the time being, this appears to be where the talent is. They do an awesome job of getting the right jobs to candidates. As a user of the product for myself in the past the jobs that it sends me are 100x better than other tools

Overall it is the best product for quick searching and sourcing, but it is costly and prices continue to increase each budget year. We will continue to use it as it gives us the best conversion rate for finding candidates and hiring them over any other job page out there right now.

This tool allows you to do so much for such an affordable rate. If you want to scoop up your competition's talent, you can filter searches for resumes for people who have or currently work at their business. You can also you Bollinger searches for individuals who have experience with a specific type or word. And my favorite, you can set up search criteria that alert you of any new resumes with specific criteria so you are first to reach out. Highly Recommend.

It was selected for me. I find it stacks up well just because Indeed is a commonly used resource for employers and job seekers. Its functionality leaves a lot to be desired, it does not have features that an ordinary word processor might. It is a useful tool if you advertise exclusively on Indeed, otherwise, it has its limitations.

While we don't need it to scale, I see how easy it would be to separate by departments and projects

  • It really hasn't helped me much because my facilities are in such rural settings and since you all do as the crow flies for the distance I get a lot of applicants that do not realize the facility they are applying for is more of an hour and 15-minute drive away from them.
