Overall Satisfaction with ZipRecruiter

We use ZipRecruiter to help us get access to candidates.
  • Selling their services
  • Advertising
  • Convincing you to use their service
  • Their sign-up process is a con. They put in very small writing that they will charge you every day until you turn it off. This is something that should be very clearly stated.
  • Honestly, the whole thing is rather low value. Lots of "old" resume. Matching algo is all talk, it's just like monster and CareerBuilder before.... nothing new.
  • We won't be using ZipRecruiter.
I'd have to rate all of these higher, as they don't try to trick you into paying them.

Did ZipRecruiter live up to sales and marketing promises?

No

Did implementation of ZipRecruiter go as expected?

No

Would you buy ZipRecruiter again?

No

I really don't think this company provides anything valuable in the way of service. If they did, they wouldn't have to trick you into paying. Small writing and a checkmark before you do your "free posting" is an incredibly deceptive way of trying to make money.
