Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • It shows the relevant data.
  • A big database for recruiting with a wide range any skills.
  • The volume of active candidate seeking opportunity is huge
  • Data is less in comparison to other portals like Naukri and LinkedIn
  • The portal is user friendly however it still requires modification to facilitate a smooth hiring process.
  • It only captures the data for India region, if the data from other regions will get add then the demand for this tool will rise up exponentially

  • Keeps us at the top of the list for keyword searches.
  • Customer service is good-our reps are available and responsive to what we need.
  • It was a little confusing for us at setup-would have been good to have a designated rep to help with the setup.

  • The system is generally easy to use and understand
  • The reporting functionality is user-friendly
  • Communicating to candidates through the system is efficient
  • Indeed generally continues to remove functionality and/or charge more or charge the same amount with fewer features. Case in point: you used to be able to reach out to an unlimited number of candidates that the system matched with your job, but Indeed now limits it to 30 FOR ALL sponsored jobs across your account.
  • Additionally, Indeed only lets you advertise sponsored jobs in your immediate service area, which doesn't help recruiting efforts much when you already have good brand awareness there.

  • It helps us find quality candidates.
  • Helps us get more attention in a difficult market.
  • Helps us compete with other companies looking to fill for the same position.
  • We currently use greenhouse as our ATS. I do wish it was easier to sponsor the indeed jobs from our ATS.

  • Easy job templates and platform for creating posts.
  • Easily manage campaigns all in one spot.
  • Ability to review hiring insights for the area that we are recruiting in.
  • The biggest area for improvement that I see is the automatic job collapsing for posts that are coming from the same company, same title but different locations. A lot of our locations are hiring hourly team members and are within 10-15 miles of each other. This issue significantly reduces the number of applicants that we see and makes our lives as recruiters more difficult when we need to try and manage 75 locations across both concepts that are potentially hiring for 2-3 positions at a time.

"Catchphrase"

  • Increases Times when YOUR jobs are visible
  • Ensures that you will have solid views of your job
  • Provides the resumes match feature when you are working fast, this is pretty quick to use and invites people to look at your opening.
  • I'd like a refresh button to "re-post" the job and not have 5 steps to close it, and then re-open it.
  • I wish the resume search feature was better set up for searching key terms, it at times doesn't show what we are searching for.
  • With the number of people who consistently apply, I wish they would be flagged and easier to see the notes on what we had on the prior. Currently, we have to click on individual job posts to see what notes we have on them. That at times slows us down.
