If I could give them a zero, I would. In my experience, CareerBuilder.com literally took thousands of my hard-earned dollars ($5K) for NOTHING in return! You would think that since CareerBuilder.com could literally see that it was not producing the results promised, it would have considered releasing me from the contract or lowering the cost, in my opinion, but CareerBuilder.com made sure they collected every penny from me with zero consideration for customer satisfaction and failed to deliver the applicants. That told me everything I needed to know about CareerBuilder.com and how they really feel about customers. In my opinion, CareerBuilder.com primary focus is to get customers on the hook with a contract to legally guarantee they receive their money from you, but they can care less about the results their platform produces or customer satisfaction, “they just want your money”! I firmly believe CareerBuilder.com knows that their product does not work, hence the reason for the 1 yr contract is to basically guarantee company revenue for an entire year.

Cons
CareerBuilder
  • We did not see a large amount of applications in comparison to Indeed.
  • The applications did not turn in to actual employees. We were more often than not ghosted by the candidates, even though the team followed up with them in a timely manner.

CareerBuilder
I have had a positive experience with CareerBuilder's support. When the platform has been updated throughout the years, CareerBuilder's account managers have always provided our team with helpful live tutorials and demonstrations to help familiarize our users with new and upcoming features, as well as older features that will no longer be offered. Support team makes themselves available on an ongoing basis.

WizeHire is one of the most amazing systems I've ever seen. I've continued to share their information with many, and my hope is that they take the hiring world by storm! It's easy to use, they obtain great candidates and many. They're very responsive and always there to help. They care about their clients. I strongly recommend them.

Return on Investment
CareerBuilder
  • There was not a good ROI for the investment we spent with CareerBuilder. It cost us money that did not turn in to employees.
  • We spent labor hours trying to get candidates who were ghosting us. So it ended up being a waste of time and manpower as well.
