Overall Satisfaction with Indeed Resume

I utilize Indeed Resume heavily as one of the recruiting tools at my disposal in order to help source talent. I've found that Indeed Resume typically works pretty well for positions that are a little more high volume (customer service reps, technicians, labor, administrative.)
  • Extremely easy to use interface
  • Very responsive customer service support
  • Ability to control your own budget
  • When selecting through candidates it feels like it takes a few extra steps than needed.
  • Not a way to delete a batch of messages at once.
  • Indeed has saved me a ton of time by allowing me to save various templates for pitching candidates.
  • I've found that candidates are usually pretty responsive on Indeed as well.
I think Indeed Resume and ZipRecruiter are pretty comparable products. I ultimately prefer Indeed Resume for flexibility. If I have one critical position to fill I can pour my entire budget into that one role and ensure that it gets maximum visibility (within my budget constraints of course.) With ZipRecruiter I feel like you have fewer options to choose from. Also, the pause fee that ZipRecruiter charges is a preposterous money grab.

Do you think Indeed Resume delivers good value for the price?

I think Indeed Resume is a very solid resume sourcing tool. I'm pretty much never going to give anything a 10/10 especially software related, but Indeed is just about perfect [for] what I need.
It's made it pretty easy to build custom projects both for current needs and future hiring goals.
I think Indeed Resume is well suited if you're a budget conscious individual looking to fill 3-4 jobs at a time. The analytics that Indeed provides good data on cost per click metrics and things like that. I don't think Indeed Resume is as effective if you're trying to fill say, 10+ jobs and you have a budget of $500/month. It's tough to get traction in that regard and your budget will most likely get chewed up without having too much to show in the way of results.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with Indeed Resume and the support I receive. I have some minor nitpicks but everything is pretty customizable depending on your hiring needs.
