Better than expected, gets the job done and beyond, tad expensive

Honestly, JBoard is great for most job board use cases. Setup process is relatively straightforward and fast, it has all the typical features and more and has thoroughly thought out extra features to help ease potential jobseekers and employers into using your job board, and the customer support team is great. In bullet points the number of pros might seem equal to the cons, but the weight of having the pro points outweigh the con points. Even with the continuation of the cons, it wouldn't dissuade me from not using JBoard, but obviously having them fixed would make this product even more superior.

PROS

- gets the job done very well with 0 programming knowledge needed - more features than the basic job posting - trustworthy - responsive customer support that answers your question by next business day - ease of use for important components such as payment processing, pinned posts - has thoroughly thought about the features that would make a job board useful, such as creating employer accounts first and inviting them to claim the account, providing unique discount codes to employers if desired, candidates resume and more

CONS

- a tad expensive for a solopreneur like me using my own money to fund a side business (maybe considered affordable for wealthier clients or businesses) - when I go to jobs, it sometimes shows a few expired jobs at the top - when putting tags for job posts, I have to manually click in the field to write another tag, disrupting the workflow a bit - lack of appearance customisation - not sure fault of JBoard or the databases I was using, but sometimes the aggregators were aggregating non-related jobs to the job board or the job posts just didn't have enough info that it would be better to skip that job post instead. I think the aggregators should also have more customisation abilities in terms of how to scrape

Reason for choosing JBoard

I mainly based on reviews from other websites and I wouldn't mind trying it for one month subscription and if it didn't work out I'll just end the subscription. That said, I've kept using it from the start, testifying that I liked JBoard enough to still be on board.

Wish we would've joined sooner.

It's been fantastic--I wish we would've started with jboard instead of trying someone else first.

PROS

We love the fantastic customer support and that they are actively rolling out new features. The previous company we worked with cost more $$ and the customer service was AWFUL. We made the tough decision to switch to jboard and transfer all of our data and it has been more than worth it. If there's a bug (rarely) in the system, they have it fixed immediately. If I have a question, they respond within 24 hours. It's taken a huge amount of stress off of us and allows us to do the things we need to to make our site successful without worrying about the backend. They are also so knowledgeable about job boards and have great blog posts to help you succeed with your job board. We are huge fans of jboard.

CONS

Not that I can think of--compared to other experiences it has just been so positive.

Reason for choosing JBoard

features were way better, customer service more prompt, customization was better

Reasons for switching to JBoard

Job Board Fire cost more money, they didn't have a month-to-month option, and the customer service was awful. There were glitches in their system that took months to fix such as the geolocation not working and the xml feeds not updating. We had to constantly email to check in on fixes and rarely got answers. If I was lucky to get a call scheduled with them, I was met with poor service and sometimes they didn't even show up. They would say new features were coming, but in our 7 months with them never saw a new feature released. Very poor experience.

J Board Review

I would recommend Jboard to anyone looking to launch and validate a job board idea quickly and at a reasonable price point - this review is for the standard subscription rather than their more advanced plans which have some additional features that may solve for some of the above issues.

PROS

The ease of getting a functioning niche job board set up and operating at a lower cost than competitors that were also explored is appealing. The customer support is very attentive and helpful. They have an active and viewable backlog of features that are being worked on based on user suggestions. It is optimised for mobile and web. Looks profesional. Transparent and upfront prices. Helpful FAQs section.

CONS

There could be higher levels of customisability for the front end of the platform. There could be deeper metrics on the dashboard. The blogging functionality seems a little basic.

One of the Best Job Boards on the market

My experience with JBoard has been overwhelmingly positive, despite encountering a few minor issues along the way. What truly stood out to me was the exceptional level of support provided by the JBoard team. Whenever I faced challenges or had questions, their support team was quick to respond and incredibly helpful. Their dedication to ensuring a smooth experience for their users truly made a difference.

PROS

After a bad experience using a Wordpress installation I have decided to try the JBoard to set up my own job board, and I must say, I'm thoroughly impressed. What I liked most about JBoard was its incredible ease of use. From the straightforward setup process to the intuitive navigation through the menus, everything was designed with simplicity in mind. I was able to get my job board up and running in no time, thanks to the user-friendly interface and seamless functionality. Within just a few days, I had everything configured and was ready to start operating. JBoard truly exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to launch their own job board quickly and effortlessly.

CONS

I think area that deals with posting and editing Blog could be improved, more drag and drop functionality and make more visually appealing when creating blog. Would be great to have more options of different site themes so website looks more appealing.

Reason for choosing JBoard

I have trial tested both products and JBoards was a better product with clear logical menus and ease of use

Reasons for switching to JBoard

Wordpress theme was really unstable and required lot of maintenance

Excellent Hosted Job Board with a Full Set of Features

jBoard let us get our job board live in a matter of hours! With a full set of advanced robust features. The support team has been excellent. Quick to answer questions and even to add new features. We're very glad to have built on jBoard as we have avoided the stress of trying to manage our own tech stack. All the hard work is done for you! The price for the value we get is great :-)

PROS

jBoard has enabled us to get a new full-featured job board live and active in record time! The speed and ease of use is excellent. As is the set of available features. For us the effective Geolocation of each job is the stand-out feature. This combined with the automated new job notification system has been brilliant.We have a heap of job seekers subscribing to receive new job notifications in their area. Job seekers are able to receive new jobs within a certain distance radius of their location. This has enabled us to bring unique value to our market and grow relatively rapidly... Without needing to build any complicated tech on our end... Just plug and play!

CONS

It would be awesome to have Zapier integration / API access on the lower plan tiers and to have an integration that could automate adding new job notification subscribers.Other than that the feature set has been excellent and the dev team is continually adding new features.

Reason for choosing JBoard

We chose jBoard because of the geolocation of each job listing combined with the easy-to-use new job notification system for our users. We also needed to have a robust job importer to get us going.That combined with the accessible price point made jBoard the ideal option for us.
