Indeed.com has ability to employers to post jobs at no charge, but visibility is not guaranteed. So for some companies that require hire fast and are ready to pay money for that - make sure to pay right away. Do not use free postings, not that many applicants.
In 2019[,] 10% of our new hires [were] "from" Indeed.
- The best free job advertising platform out there that is easy to use and integrates with our ATS Greenhouse
- ATS (Greenhouse) automatically posts every job to Indeed and requires zero effort
- Formatting of the the jobs from my ATS look good when "pulled" over to Indeed
- Able to integrate questions with rules that allow you to shortlist candidates in a more timely fashion
- Sponsoring portal has change a couple times. I do not love the new format as of 5/2021 but it is not bad.
- They allow you to use a credit card for sponsoring which linkedin will not
- Sponsoring criteria is good and has many options
- Sponsoring the jobs through my ATS is possible but it is much more effective going directly to the indeed platform. It should be the same and same experience, but it is not
- I had issues Linking our indeed page to the proper company page etc...
- New job sponsoring platform can be confusing
Simply said LinkedIn costs a lot, [Indeed.com] costs a little. I have now virtually cut out my LinkedIn advertising costs. I do not sponsor any jobs on LinkedIn because of the cost and lack of billing flexibility. I use about 10% of that old LinkedIn budget to sponsor jobs on Indeed and to pay for LinkedIn Recruiter as we get 40% of our hires from LinkedIn Recruiter. All in all, I have so far been able to deliver quality candidates on time and at a much lower budget so I look like a hero
- Indeed is fantastic when hiring across state lines and for large-scale hiring.
- Indeed has such broad reach due to how well known it is and ease of use for the employees who are applying for positions.
- Indeed is free to post jobs, and we can promote the jobs for comparably a good deal to other job posting sites.
- A lot of the same applicants apply over and over to the same job postings despite being rejected due to being unqualified for the position. This is particularly a problem when doing large-scale hires in one specific location.
- Indeed has poor filtering and search capabilities for employers. As an employer on Indeed you deal with huge QUANTITY of applicants - which can be great but when looking for specific skillsets, it can be difficult to find the right applicants in such a large pool. For executive level positions, Indeed is not my preferred job positing site.
- Indeed.com is well known; thus has a very large pool of candidates.
- With the web site being around longer than most of the other competitors, we can count on most of the features being mature and usable.
- Standard listings are free so it allows us to casually look for someone without any expenditure.
- They have a great desktop/mobile job alerts function which gets our jobs out to more candidates.
- Indeed.com tends to have a lot of fake listings or listings which overstate a role and that drives some users away from using the service.
- Indeed.com's aesthetics are a bit dated so although the web sites functions are mature they also are a bit bland....if that matters to someone.
- They seem to try and push the sponsor (cost to you) job lists a bit strong.
- Set of resumes.
- Texting to candidate.
- Predefined templates and packages.
- Phone screen tends to land in applicants spam folder.
- UI needs improvement.
- Compare job postings
- Submit application
- Search for jobs
- Submit resume as a PDF
- Track job applications
- Better search engines
- Quality of the candidate pool
- Easy management of applicants
- Screener questions and assessment testing
- Screener questions don't automatically cut out unqualified candidates
- Requires specific uses of words in title to show up on searches
- Resume doesn't always automatically show up or require additional download
- Indeed.com has set the gold standard on tailoring job alerts!
- You can easily create a resume with their Resume Builder.
- Indeed.com is wallet friendly with FREE job postings!
- Indeed.com doesn’t offer many other resources outside of searching for a job.
- While their navigation is effective, it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing!

- Simple layout and easy to navigate.
- Great emails for job notifications.
- Indeed.com isn't great for recruiting.
- The cost to advertise jobs can get pricey.
- There are some not so legit jobs posted that get in the way of real jobs.
- Easy to use format
- Rep calls you to make sure you're maximizing your dollars.
- offers assessments
- none to list at this time
- Allows you to reach applicants on a larger basis
- Easy to post a job and get feedback from applicants
- Love the filters to try and filter out candidates that wouldn't be a great fit
