Overall Satisfaction with ZipRecruiter

My clients use ZipRecruiter to promote their hard to fill positions - specifically in healthcare. All of my clients utilize ZipRecruiter in effort to help fill critical positions. Most of my clients have between 100-300 open positions at any given time, and ZipRecruiter plays a vital role in helping to drive applicants to these open jobs.
  • Drives applications
  • Drives QUALITY hires
  • Offers a lost cost per applicant ratio
  • Provides great customer services throughout the process
  • Providing a more visual aspect of the process
  • Showing results based on the specific site the job was promoted
  • A more detailed list of sites under their umbrella
  • Great ROI
  • Can track ROI on specific positions
  • Can start and stop campaigns at any time
ZipRecruiter stacks up very well with the competition. We still use the competitors as they both provide a great return, but in terms of quality, they are top notch. From a volume stand point it all depends on the budget that is allocated, you are truly getting what you pay for - which a lot of other organizations cannot say.
I would say that ZipRecruiter is suited for any scenario in which someone is looking to fill open positions. Whether it is 1 or 20, the budget can be set based upon the need and the staff at Zip will help you determine what that budget should be based up your specific needs.
