Overall Satisfaction with Dice Open Web

I am actively recruiting for 2 IT positions at an MSP. I paid Dice for a month-long contract. I received many promises regarding the contract and my postings. I received no applicants to either job and after making some changes suggested to me by my Dice CSR, very little changed and when I mentioned the changes did not work, I only received repetitive support suggestions.
  • Empty promises.
  • Email communication.
  • Attempting to deflect blame.
  • Better metrics to support their statements.
  • Updates to prevent repetition with suggested applicants.
  • Job promotion to ensure exposure and actual job applicants.
  • Utilized a great deal of my hiring budget without producing any applicants.
  • Used a large amount of my time with no payoff.
  • Frustration with signing a contract and after payment did not receive any assistance with the traction of my job posts.
I received multiple candidates only after hours of posting my jobs on other sites. And for a fraction of the cost! I not only received quality candidates but also candidates who actually matched my requirements. These sites also have the option for proactive outreach and pay-by-click options as well. Some also provide free trials, which Dice does not.

The Dice platform may be better suited for very large companies that have ongoing hiring needs. It did not work well for my company, which has 40 employees and only hiring for 2 positions. It also tends to be more focused toward applicants looking strictly for remote positions. I do not have a disposable budget where I can wait several months for a job post to gain traction across their platform.
