Helps you find people quickly for a cheap price

I love ziprecruiter both as a job seeker and job poster. As a poster, it's cheap and effective. As a user, it's easy to apply.

Cons

There's not really anything to dislike about ZR.

Didn't help

Reviewed a year ago

Not worth the price - cheaper to use sites like indeed

Pros

The applicants that were found for us weren't good - we found one through the site on our own. Seemed to be more work than we had hoped

Cons

That we pay for a service but in the end found a person ourself. So wasn't worth paying for this service

Thanks for sharing your experience, Amanda! We're sorry to hear that you did not find a candidate through our platform. Our dedicated customer care team would be happy to assist you next time you're needing to post jobs. Happy Hiring! --TC

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience with ZipRecruiter was very pleasing.

Pros

I loved using ZipRecruiter when we were hiring for our photography company. The ease of use to set the desired requirements as well as the AI process to find the right fit was perfect. Almost no issues

Cons

The only real big con was pricing. I’m cheap and I like to eliminate as much costs as possible.

Not a big fan

Reviewed 2 years ago

Not great, it is a great sales organization but there are more effective and cheaper solutions.

Pros

It was extremely user friendly and flashy with it's design and layout. The customer advocates were knowledgeable and very quick to respond.

Cons

It was extremely expensive. Not only did you pay a regular fee you had to boost the posts so much that it was cost prohibitive and each conversation resulted in the advocate telling you to spend more money. When we were paying thousands and not receiving qualified candidates we pulled the plug.

Vendor response

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review ZipRecruiter. We are sorry to hear you did not have a good experience using our service. The last thing we want is for you to feel pressured into purchasing add-ons such as Traffic boosts in order to have success on our platform. I apologize if this was the experience you had while with us. You should not need to spend more and more money to have success...

Ziprecruiter - Need to Hire? Look no further

Reviewed a year ago

Overall I'd recommend it. For our niche (computer software) there were a lot of good applications and not much spam.

Pros

We used it to hire our last two employees, we used linkedin previous times, and it was so much better. You can go through the applications quickly and there's no spam like there's on linkedin.

Cons

My favourite app for hiring right now, nothing to dislike yet, however it comes in at not too cheap of a price.

A quality job site

Reviewed a year ago

Generally very good. Good user experience and friendly customer service people.

Pros

Zip is a decent service, but tends to be better if you're recruiting for lower paid jobs. We've had gretat success using the platform for retail and hospitality jobs, but less so for senior management jobs.

Cons

Cost - not the cheapest offering in the marketing and I would have thought that with covid and more job seekers on the market, prices might come down.

Hands Down Best Job Board Out There

Reviewed 10 days ago

I've been recruiting drivers for 10+ years now. I had it down to a science on when candidates were looking for jobs by the days of the week and times. I've used many other job boards before Zip Recruiter. I will never go back to those job boards and waste my money getting unqualified candidates again. Zip Recruiter is hands down the best Job Board out there and by a large margin. If you're not using Zip Recruiter for your hiring needs, you should ASAP.

Pros

Zip Recruiter gets you qualified candidates every time. Period. They post to multiple job boards for you outside of Zip Recruiter and you get what you pay for. Qualified candidates. You get assigned a Campaign Manager who works with you to get your job ad and location to where candidates are searching for them. You can create knock out questions on your ads so you don't get unqualified candidates...

Cons

I suppose the only con is that it is not cheap. When you run a campaign, you are given many options to the price best fits your needs. My industry is very competitive so I always campaign at a higher cost.

Great during Trial Run

Reviewed a year ago

ZipRecruiter was a great option for the duration of the trial.

Pros

I liked the database of resumes so we could manually select who we felt were a good fit based on their resume.

Cons

The price is too expensive in comparison to the value especially at this time. There’s a global pandemic so we are pinching pennies.

Pros

Zip Recruiter is a great recruitment source for finding the candidates in high quantities that are not the run of the mill Indeed applicants.

Cons

Sponsoring posts can become expensive, but I believe that it is still cheaper than Indeed's pay-per-click.

Zip is Sweet for Office Pros

Reviewed a year ago

No complaints, will likely use for awhile as long as it gets results.

Pros

My team loves Zip. I'm not sure I do, but if my team does, must be good. Say it's good for office pros.

Cons

Seems kind of cheap, compared to Indeed, but for the cost, probably none like it. Like a modern Craigslist.

Expensive but good

My overall experience was good if you don’t count the cost of use.

Pros

I like that it is easy to use and the customer service is great. I also like that it is easy to access the portal.

Cons

The thing I like the least about this program is the expense. We tried the free trial but there are many more programs out there that are way cheaper.

Great for recruiting in large metro areas

Reviewed a year ago

Ziprecruiter has been my go to over the years and I understand they system quite well. I prefer it over the high cost of indeed. As a small company it serves my purpose well at this price point.

Pros

Good database of resumes to search through and good response rate for job ads in large metro areas. Good value compared to some other job boards.

Cons

You get charged per resume, but sometimes it comes back with resumes that aren't related to your search so I don't think thier boolean search method is as strong as some other job boards. Low amount of resumes and response in more rural areas of America. They are still growing in their national presence.

Heard the ads. Not worth the price.

Reviewed 6 months ago

I will not use them again. They're too expensive when I can simply list to Indeed for less cost and just as many candidates for my job.

Pros

It's hard to think what I liked most about this software. Its results were weak and it cost too much. I didn't really care for anything about it.

Cons

I heard the ads about how my job listing would be shared on tons of other job sites which would bring me more applicants. I'm sure my job got listed in more places by using ZipRecruiter, but the results were nothing special. Especially not for the price.

Pros

Zip Recruiter is a very good application for hiring employees. The database of available resources is good. The application is very easy to use. It has a lot of features to be able to filter and adjust as you need to for what you need. The active applicants vary in expertise. There are plenty to available to fit your hiring needs.

Cons

Although I believe that Zip Recruiter is a good hiring tool, it is way too expensive. Other competitors are much better when you need to hire in the low number like 1-3. If you’re hiring more than 5 employees, it may be more economical.

Strong tool for recruiting teams

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, give ZipRecruiter a shot, it's a really great tool that can add a lot of value to your team.

Pros

I have used ZipRecruiter for the last 7 years and continue to see ROI through using the platform. It allows our recruiters to take a back seat and let the tool do the heavy lifting. It's an intuitive tool that allows your recruiters to focus on more strategic objectives while the system posts, searches and finds candidates.

Cons

The price can be a sticking point if your company is on a smaller scale. If you are a medium to large size business, the cost is justified through the candidates you will hire.

Useful but expensive

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall it is an innovative job platform that could even be considered disruptive in the modern age if they could just figure out a way to lower their prices it would be a more justifiable purchase for businesses.

Pros

ZipRecruiter was a very useful tool for our HR department during the time they used it thanks to the fact it posts to multiple job boards and sites automatically for you so you are able to reach a larger pool of candidates easily and efficiently. This in turn has led to us being able to hire from a larger group of talent.

Cons

Everything about the software works fine and is functional the only main issue is the price. Obviously since it posts to many different job boards for you it is still cheaper and easier than signing up to every job board and posting separately however they charge a pretty penny for the pleasure.

Great Service for bringing candidates to you

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, I would say this is a great alternative to a headhunter type service. Definitely cheaper.

Pros

I liked that candidates where viewing our information and coming to us. More recently we had a representative reach out to help narrow the search and make the position listing reach the right audience. Update the listing to make it more appealing, and help plug in the right key words to have the right type of people apply. Without the help of someone who knows how to use ZipRecruiter, it could be hard to get a good ROI.

Cons

Unfortunately, most of the candidates the alogrithm qualifies as a "great" match are not, so we tend to igorne that rating all together. I also don't like that we thought we were using it the correct way but not until a specialist reached out did we realize we totally weren't using it the correct way. I was hoping this was more of a self sustaining service, but it definitely takes some work on the user end to get and continue to get good candidates.
