ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter is a great platform for entry/low-level positions as it's a very popular job board that can stretch to thousands of potential applicants. When it comes to more senior roles, because it's incredibly easy for anyone to apply, it's time-consuming and difficult to find a "needle in a haystack" for an open position

Pros

ZipRecruiter

  • 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

ZipRecruiter

  • I would love the ability to sort by not only current location, but locations a candidate is willing to relocate to.
  • More filters. Comparing the filters available on LinkedIn Recruiter to what ZipRecruiter has to offer really highlights just how much more could be done.
  • Fewer "junk" resumes. ZipRecruiter seems to be rife with candidates in their database that either has no actual resume on file or a two-word resume. There needs to be some way to filter out resumes that are clearly lacking any useful information.

Results. The bottom line is the results we are getting. We are seeing not only quality applications, but quality hires that can directly be tied to our use of ZipRecruiter. The ROI is second to none - a simple and easy to use tool that is driving healthcare professionals to my various clients.

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
