Most positive review

 Nice System

I have used this system to fill several positions. I send all candidates from all sources (my own personal networking, linkedin, etc.) to the ziprecruiter posting so that all candidates can be tracked in one place. It's been especially useful for collaborating with others. I've been really happy ...

Most critical review

 Company focused on upselling instead of wanting to help

The account representative was aggressively trying to upsell add on features to my job post. I didn't have great results, and when I voiced this to the customer service representative they were still trying to sell more by offering a discount on the next month (even while I was cancelling). If ...

Ziprecruiter will send your job seekers to your competitors

18/04/2017

When I was testing out my new auto-reply email message in ziprecruiter, I was emailed the following, which sends any applicant to any of my jobs straight into the arms of my competitors. And I pay for this!?!? Hi Elizabeth, I wanted to reach out to let you know that we received your application for the CHHA's (Certified Home Health Aide) needed in Somerset, NJ position at Comfort Keepers. I'll let you know as soon as the hiring manager views it. In the meantime, I found a few similar jobs that I wanted to run by you. If you like any of them, just click the "1-Click Apply" link and I'll go ahead and submit your application using the resume that we already have on file. By the way, I'm passing on a message from the hiring manager: "Thanks for choosing Comfort Keepers for your career! We are happy you are interested in joining our family.

Great product, but not appropriate for me

24/02/2017

ZipRecruiter is a terrific product for large corporations, in that it allows you to post a job to multiple sites with the click of a button at a very low cost. But unfortunately, it's not great for my particular niche market - so I eventually canceled my subscription. I initially signed up for the product as it would enable me to post jobs on Indeed.com at no extra cost. When Indeed.com severed the relationship (to increase direct revenue to their site, the product was no longer a good fit for me. Plus, only 1 out of a 100+ resumes were a fit for the jobs that I was posting - so I found myself taking too much time reviewing inappropriate resumes.

Pros

This is a good product for a corporation that has dozens of different types of jobs that need filling. It is easy to use and low-priced.

Cons

It does not pre-qualify candidates so you can get 100+ inappropriate resumes for a position, which slows you down. It does not work with 2 major job sites, Indeed.com & Dice. Plus, it doesn't work with small niche market job posting sites that I use.

ZipRecruiter Review

01/02/2017

ZipRecruiter did not lead to more candidates for our organization. They used to have a one click feature where you could post to craigslist and they got rid of that feature. Just didn't see more candidates from using them. Even though it is a low cost it wasn't worth it for our company.

Jobs lose visibility

23/01/2017

Cross-posting to a hundred job boards is their selling point but your job postings lose "visibility" like Craigslist. You don't need to cross-post jobs to a hundred job boards to get the needed results. Almost every job board aggregates their listings into one service and we all know who that is. Is aggregating your listings into one not adequate? It is.

Pros

UI is a bit easier to use

Cons

Aggressive up-selling of upgrades. Results are not satisfactory. Job postings lose visibility. Expensive.

Great tool for recruiting

17/01/2017

As a technical recruiter, I have been using ziprecruiter for about a 2 years now. I find the ability to post a position within their site and their cross posting is wonderful and the social networking linking is a plus.

Pros

Easy, free and offers tons of resumes

Cons

Search capability could improve

IT Director at consulting firm, great for scaling

20/09/2016

Pros

It's cheap and allows hiring managers and internal recruiters to quickly share the workload related to screening and onboarding. Really like the quick, but very useful emails, with the resume attached. Great for sitting at the airport and reviewing resumes. The custom tags are very useful.

Cons

The UI doesn't allow much personalization. I only care about a couple job postings, and everything from my company is loaded in, without the ability to save custom views and dashboards. Also would really like a high level dashboard with key metrics (new applicants, total unreviewed applicants, number of thumbs up/flat/down, ALL PER POSITION, or FOR ONLY THE POSITIONS I CARE ABOUT)

Constantly hone in your JD's based on the candidates you get. Sometimes I am getting too technical resources, so I tweak it, and get too junior resources, and keep adjusting your JD's

Overall good experience

19/09/2016

Pros

Like that they are continually updating the software, making it easy to quickly review candidates without having to jump through lots of UI hoops.

Cons

Fairly frequently receive phone calls trying to upsell me to additional products. Sometimes the UI is a bit clunky/slow to load.
