Overall Satisfaction with Indeed.com

Our org uses Indeed.com to post jobs and source potential candidates. We also utilize it to find similar job titles and postings to reassess our strategy.

Pros

  • Huge candidate base - about 50% of our candidates apply from Indeed.com.
  • Easy to use - Indeed scrapes postings from our ATS

Cons

  • Formatting of job posts does not translate well sometimes
  • Indeed.com doesn't have great search parameters to find candidates
  • About 50% of candidates come from Indeed.com.
  • Cheap and easy to post jobs - worth the price
Indeed.com is better than most of the job sites that we have utilized, mainly due to candidate flow. However, LinkedIn Jobs continues to take first place due to its search capabilities. Indeed.com, it is more intuitive than Monster and CareerBuilder.
I never needed to utilize support.

Did Indeed.com live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Indeed.com go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Indeed.com again?

Yes

Indeed.com is excellent for our candidate pool. It is really easy for our job posts to get scraped to Indeed and about half of our candidates come from Indeed. It's easy for candidates to use and apply. It is more difficult to source for candidates through Indeed; I think this could be built out a little more to make it easier for employers.
