CareerBuilder.com has been used by various organizations and staffing agencies for a range of purposes. One staffing agency owner utilized the platform to find talent for their clients, but unfortunately did not receive the expected number of applicants. Similarly, a different company aimed to increase their application flow and find employees for office positions, but faced challenges in achieving their recruitment goals. However, CareerBuilder.com was also used by hiring departments and recruiting teams to advertise open positions and attract potential candidates. It has been employed across organizations as a versatile tool for employment advertising, job posting, and creating talent networks for passive candidates. In addition, CareerBuilder.com has proven beneficial in sourcing potential candidates that are not found in other major job databases, providing valuable additional options for recruiters. While some users have reported drawbacks such as resume quality and unresponsive account management, others have found value in using CareerBuilder.com to gather market data for compensation expectations and candidate availability. Overall, the platform has been utilized by diverse users for resume sourcing throughout the United States and has played a strategic role in reaching out to potential hires for hard-to-fill positions. Despite mixed experiences with the platform's effectiveness in delivering qualified candidates, it has provided an additional resource for locating talent.

Easy Candidate Search: Many users have found the candidate search system to be easy to use, suggesting that it has a user-friendly interface and intuitive navigation. They appreciate how it simplifies the process of finding potential candidates by providing a seamless experience with clear instructions and straightforward steps.

Wide Reach of Candidates: Several reviewers mentioned that the system allows them to access a wide range of candidates across the USA, indicating its extensive reach. This broad coverage increases the chances of finding suitable candidates from various locations, which is especially valuable for companies with multiple branches or remote work opportunities.

Efficient Resume Search Tool: The resume search tool was highly appreciated by users for its efficiency in filtering and finding relevant resumes. It streamlines the recruitment process by allowing recruiters to easily narrow down their search based on specific criteria such as skills, experience, and qualifications. This saves time and effort in reviewing an overwhelming number of resumes manually.

Cons: Service Issues: Some users have reported experiencing issues with the company's services not being rendered. They have repeatedly requested that these issues be addressed and fixed to ensure a smoother user experience. Unhelpful Customer Service: Users have expressed dissatisfaction with the unhelpful and non-responsive nature of the customer service provided by the company. They often struggle to receive timely assistance and resolution for their concerns, leading to frustration and inconvenience. Difficulty in Navigating: The user experience with the company's services has consistently been described as awful due to its challenging and confusing navigation. Users find it difficult to navigate through the platform, hindering their ability to effectively utilize its features and impacting overall satisfaction.

  • In my opinion, take your money for nothing in return
  • In my opinion, over promise and under deliver
  • In my opinion, deceive customers
  • In my opinion, hold you to the terms of their contract, but will not take accountability for lack of results produced
  • In my opinion, poor customer service
  • Fix customers issues
  • In my experience, stop taking money for services not rendered
  • In my opinion, hire staff who actually care about clients/customers
  • Fix problems when clients customers bring them to your attention
  • Allow month to month subscriptions like other platforms
  • In my experience, release customers from contacts when Career Builder can not deliver as promise.

  • System is easy to use
  • You can reach candidates across the USA.
  • 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.

  • 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
  • Functionality can be more user-friendly for beginners.
  • More options to integrate with other platforms and Applicant Tracking Systems
  • Make it easier to create candidate lists, and send mass emails--while this feature is available, CareerBuilder.com does not make it easy for users to perform these tasks.
  • Add an option for the user to be notified when candidates in saved folders have removed their resume or are no longer available.
