CareerBuilder.com

The only issue is [the same as] all employment sites [where] some people unfitting for positions get their resumes through to you anyway. And although it is a waste of your time, it is still worth using the site to get the good ones. Many more worthy candidates come through than unworthy [ones].

Glassdoor

[Glassdoor.com] is well suited for larger, older organizations who have had time to build up a reputation in the market and have lots of employees come and go. This means that job seekers will have a lot more data to peruse when it comes to company reviews, interviews, salaries, etc. simply because there is a larger pool of people to provide such information. If you are a small or new organization, [Glassdoor.com] might not be helpful for candidates trying to learn more about your company.

Pros

CareerBuilder.com

  • Advanced keyword and Boolean search options
  • Sourcing and identifying candidates by geographical location
  • Contacting potential candidates directly through the CareerBuilder platform
  • Creating original and generic email and job posting templates

Glassdoor

  • It's like a mirror to organizations to how its culture, leadership, practices, and processes are perceived by previous and existing employees.
  • It provides key insights about our company, culture, the average salary for each role, and the interview process to the prospective candidates which helps them understand what to expect.
  • Sponsored campaigns can be run to hire candidates especially when hiring is to be done in less time as people browsing on the Glassdoor platform are the ones actively looking for a change.

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.

Support is generally excellent, but there can be a fair amount of bureaucracy at times for requests. The support people are very knowledgeable of the platform, but sales seem to regurgitate the same info when trying to negotiate or upsell a client. Technical issues are rare and usually solved quickly.

Alternatives Considered

CareerBuilder.com

CareerBuilder.com was one of the first employment advertising that our company has used and we have been using it for about 7 years. Since then, we have tried other employment advertising (Monster.com, Indeed.com, LinkedIn, RecruitMilitary, and ZipRecruiter) and we have continued to use CareerBuilder.com because it links to our HRIS and it is easy to post the job and the leader job since it is linked. I like ZipRecruiter better because it targets the correct candidates and there are prescreening questions on the job posting itself.

Glassdoor

LinkedIn is the most direct competitor and to be honest Glassdoor's offering does not match up. LinkedIn's product is superior as it is more developed, more precise, you can get more insights as an applicant and as a business. I would use both services but Glassdoor would not be my first choice.

Return on Investment

CareerBuilder.com

  • Saw an influx in candidates and about 25-30% mentioned CareerBuilder as the site they applied through.
  • Ended up ultimately not providing the right candidates and wasn't worth the cost for our business.

Glassdoor

  • We benefit from being able to see what former employees had to say about our company and how we can rectify any issues.
