Best for Employers and Applicants

Pros

LOVE this tool. I use this for my own recruiting needs and to assist clients in their hiring process. I love that you can easily vett, sort, disqualify and more within one single interface. Immediately access resumes, see competitor postings and more!

Cons

It is expensive and is less adapted in smaller cities, but with Marketing and time that will be resolved!

Great Idea, not everyone buys in.

Easy to use. Great idea. Didn't help me with a job.

Pros

Easy to use. Its starting to get bigger. Commerials on TV and what not show that it is spreading to many areas.

Cons

When I was wanting to become a teacher, I think a district or two used this. However, it was more connected to just random emails. To this day I get random emails from school districts with generic mass produced emails of job openings. The job I actually got I applied to the school district, and they did the process their own way. This would be amazing if everyone used it, however that is not the case as every individual business does it the way the manager wants to do it.

Pros

It’s ease of use. Definitely felt welcoming to just wander around on the site, when first getting used to it.

Cons

It wasn’t exceptional - just there, and only a little easier to use than some similar platforms.

Great Opportunities with a click

Pros

We just used zip recruiter a few months back to look for jobs for my roommate. It was very easy to use and a lot more options than other job sites we have looked into. She has had two interviews already off of the site. Its a great website for those that are seeking great employment opportunities

Cons

There is nothing to not like, the site definitely does what it promises!

ZipRecruiter is a very well formatted software that we use at work to obtain job applications

ZipRecruiter does all the work for you! It was easy and perfect for our firm who does hiring in Summer which is the busiest season for A Construction firm

Pros

What I like most about this software is the ease of use, all you need is to sign up and the applications come pouring in, since you are the first point of contact, you don't get bombarded by emails unless you contact the prospective employee first

Cons

I don't think there was a specific item I didn't like about this software

It does not screen candidates as well as it is advertised.

Just a middleware

I use the tool as a filter. The issue is that I receive the same position from multiple sources. They need to cut the out the third party job shops. Make it a direct only posting site.

Pros

That they provide me suggestions on a regular basis.

Cons

There algorithm will provide you many false positive results. Needs to search on total job title, not just individual words.

Why didn’t I think of this?

The benefits are endless. The easy 1-tap apply is the best thing ever! Definitely makes job searching easier and faster than ever before.

Pros

I love how easy it is to search for jobs in any given area and apply with one tap.

Cons

I did not like that you can see as soon as your info is viewed, because it can leave you on edge if you do not hear anything back in a short period of time.

Lots of jobs

Finding decent jobs. Easily applying, but I haven't found the right job just yet.

Pros

I like the number of legitimate job opportunities. I appreciate the ease of "one touch apply" as well.

Cons

I get a lot of suggestions that don't seem appropriate for my background. I'm guessing some of them may be sponsored posts. I don't like when I don't get responses from employers.

Functional for Recruiting

Pros

Keeps CSVs and Applicants organized in one place, easy for team collaboration.

Cons

Pricing- expensive for what it is. Old pricing was a better model. Unfortunately, not much competition to displace it though, so still a must use.
