*Large pool of perspective applicants. *Easy to use *Updated daily

Pros
That there is a wide spectrum of applicants on there. That the pricing is very cheap. That there is the ability to store job templates when emails prospective employees

Cons
That it is not categorized by type of job. That there are no opportunities for applicants to have cover letters and additional information outside of the standard resume.

Response from Indeed


Hi Mindy, thank you for sharing this feedback with us! We will be sure to pass your feedback about job type categorization along to our Product Team. In regards to candidate cover letters, we would recommend asking candidates to submit a cover letter with their application. Candidates have the option to submit their application with a message or cover letter. This request can be added to your job description. For assistance with this, please contact us at [email protected] referencing this review. We would be happy to help!

Good quality candidates at a pretty decent price.

Pros
Its easy to setup and get started and you can have a job posted in minutes for very little cost. We get quite a few decent candidates for each posting without having to spend too much.

Cons
Doesn't have the features of some of the more expensive recruiting HR apps but this does have everything we needed to find good quality candidates.

Review Source: Capterra

We started using Indeed for recruitment for software developers and IT engineers, we did hire one or two, however, our overall impression is that it is extremely expensive. We ended up just keeping OCC (we're in México) for our recruiting experiences.

Pros
We liked the actualization of the information on the CVs of candidates, and the candidate exposure. however, we believed that OCC was superior on candidate quality and value for our money.

Cons
Price and at least 2 years ago, it was a bit difficult o navigate for recruiters. I think it was more candidate oriented.

It was a smooth transaction from placing the advert through to hiring the new employee

Pros
Indeed is a good platform for sourcing new candidates for roles within an organization.I have used it in the past to source an assistant for myself and indeed did a great job for me. It did meet my expectations.

Cons
I think cost is a factor but to be honest it still turns out a lot cheaper than hiring through an agency.

Pros
Indeed users can simply apply using their resumes stored/saved in their profiles. Easy to navigate Easy to post new positions

Cons
The pricing is not necessarily cheap. There is no Non-for-Profit rates which would be ideal. Although, the user can filter the applicants, still takes time to go over resumes since any person can pass the questions.

I used Indeed to recruit for positions within a charter school as the HR coordinator.

Pros
Loved the ability to post jobs, screen applicants that respond by setting criteria specifically with questions that would narrow down good candidates. Another pro is that is allowed you to communicate with applicants through the indeed mailbox as well.

Cons
The pricing after a certain number of jobs and the cost to sponsor goes up.

Pros
I have been using Indeed for over 4 years to recruit employees as needed. The software is very easy to use and the prompts walk you through the entire process. But what I like MOST about Indeed is the ability to ask a candidate to complete a short phone recording or asking them to do a skills test after submitting their resume. It shows how invested the candidate is in the position.

Cons
Cost is a big factor. The price for a listing can add up very quickly.

Worth the price because you will know your ad is actually being seen based on all the interested candidates. Same day hires.

Pros
Easy to create and post advertising. You can then choose a dollar amount not to exceed daily. You can pause the job when you've hired and reopen when a position opens back up.

Cons
It is very expensive compared to Craigslist, but worth it based on proven successful hires and features.

Pros
The cheap options to post jobs and review many candidates in the area, as well as the upload feature.

Cons
As many requirements as you place on your job posts it does not matter, this website is strictly used by people who are required to apply to a certain amount of jobs each month. I would receive over 400 applications for an engineering job and only 5 of those people would have met the requirements I listed as MANDITORY. A grand waste of time and poor system for filtering the spam applications.

Pros
Indeed is a leader in the industry for a reason - virtually all job seekers are aware of it and have made use of it at some point. It has the widest reach of any job board we have used.

Cons
The price! They know that they are a leader and they make that apparent in their cost. It is impossible to have a partnership with them for a reasonable price.

It is a good value for the price. It may not be free, but I do get a lot of applicants when I have a position available.

Pros
I like that I can set up "screening questions" to help weed out the people who are not qualified for the position.

Cons
I set up screening questions so I don't get a lot of people who are not qualified for the position applying, but people lie! They say they have the required years experience but they don't have any. I wish I could "report" those people so they will at least get a "slap on the hand" type email stating why they shouldn't lie to be able to apply to positions. Why would I hire someone when they VERY FIRST thing they did was lie to me?

I like that almost all jobs in your area can be found on Indeed. It is the go-to platform for most employers, so I know I can find the widest spectrum of jobs.

My Account Rep is super easy to get a hold of and her team works quickly to resolve any issue we have. She has helped tailor our budget based upon our company needs. It's not the least expensive recruiting tool, but it works for our company if a budget is set and kept.

Pros
We are able to set up our monthly budget to recruit for personnel and promote our company culture. The resume database is super easy to use to look for and contact potential candidates.

Cons
The crazy algorithm used to set the pricing for clicks - based on 'demand' - am not sure what that number is as it varies all the time. Our positions typically run high for price per click because many companies are looking for the same types of people we are.
