FInd a Job, FInd an Employee, it Works

2019-08-27

Very good, found quality jobs and conversely have found good employees through the system.

Pros

Simplicity of setup. No real issues aside for the formatting of resumes/job postings but that is normal for WYSIWYG text editors.

Cons

Tracking of applicants and their status can be cumbersome.

The Biggest Job Platform - Which Is It's Best Feature

2019-10-21

Indeed has been used with some success on the employee and employer side of job hunting/recruiting.

Pros

Indeed's main sell and biggest pro is that it's the biggest and most well known. Like a social media, a job platform is only as good or as big as it's userbase. More users usually equal better/more jobs and better/more candidates.

Cons

The advertising is expensive and not targetted based on activity or data.

Well known job site with free job posting options. Still get lots of applicants with free listings.

2018-04-19

Hired a couple solid employees!

Pros

I like how it compiles your applicants and gives you a dashboard showing status of each interaction with the applicant.

Cons

I didn't like the communication element within the software, it didn't really seem to work. Applicants would not respond to inquiries via indeed but they would when you emailed them directly.

Indeed is perfect for small business recruitment of specialized workers

2021-01-08

Overall, Indeed is a very economical platform for recruiting potential employees.

Pros

Indeed helps us weed through the applicants with ease, which saves time and money.

Cons

We've had problems setting up the applicant questions, so we tend to avoid these now in favor of creating our own requirements.

2018-09-17

Pros

The database is huge for employers and potential employees.

Again, more work is needed on their end to not allow applicants to apply if they do not meet the Minimum Qualifications or MQ's.

Pros

very intuitive and able to launch a recruitment in a matter of minutes.

Cons

More work needs to be done with regard to screening applicants. Example if job bulletin states 2+ years experience is required.
