About Indeed

Indeed is a recruitment advertising network that helps companies of all sizes to find the right fit for every hire. The platform acts as a source of candidates for a vast number of companies that helps drive millions of targeted applicants to jobs in every field. Users are provided with a powerful applicant tracking system (ATS) for managing candidates and tracking results while on-the-go via mobile device.

The solution enables organizations to post job listings directly to Indeed, to be automatically included in relevant searches by millions of job seekers online. Users can add job details into simple fields via desktop or mobile app, preview listings to ensure accuracy, and publish within minutes. Users can also add screener questions to filter out any unqualified candidates.

Indeed enables users to manage all candidate communications in one place, including view their resumes, schedule interviews, and send messages. Users can set candidate statuses as reviewed, interviewed, rejected, or hired, and make applicant notes to record impressions. The solution also enables organizations to create and send rejection letters to dropped candidates.

Indeed lets users view their active budget, as well as track results to get insight into listing performance such as candidate count, and the number of views a job listing received. For improved results, organizations can choose to promote their listing as a ‘Sponsored’ job. Sponsored jobs are paid job postings that appear higher above free job postings in search results.

    Indeed has been amazing at saving me time in sorting through potential candidates and the functionality has allowed me to be very specific in searching for candidate skill sets.

    Pros

    My experience has been that I’m able to find a deep and varied talent pool from which to seek candidates. I suspect some of this is due to the name recognition and broad use.

    Cons

    Although not my own experience, I’ve heard other users complain that the free version has limited access to details.

    Quality Hands-On Recruiting Tool

    Reviewed on 2019/08/03

    If your company does not have a lot of job openings on a regular basis, Indeed can be a very cost effective recruiting tool in lieu of hiring a full time staff member. The more time and money you are willing to invest in the application, the more beneficial it can be for your recruiting efforts. It is definitely a solid platform for reaching a larger pool of applicants for your position opening.

    Pros

    When posting job openings, Indeed allows you to be very specific about your minimum criteria for the position. It then gives you a breakdown of how each candidate matches against the criteria, which can save you some time sorting through various resumes. Indeed also allows you to be very specific about your monthly spend, which is important as you are charged a base fee for each candidate who applies for the position. One you reach your maximum spend for the month, Indeed automatically pauses your posting so that you do not go over budget. Its email and scheduling capabilities make it easy to set up interviews with candidates you feel are qualified for your open position.

    Cons

    Indeed has a large variety of options and filters available when posting a new position, which means you will probably spend a lot of time both setting up and maintaining your job posting. If you choose not to thoroughly set up your posting, you will receive a lot of applicants who are not specifically qualified for your open position, which means additional time sorting through resumes and communicating with applicants. While many of the process are automated, Indeed still requires someone to invest a significant amount sorting through resumes and cover letters.

    Indeed used to be great! However Indeed has just turned into a big bidding war, it seems you have to be willing to pay more and more each time for per click to get to the top of the list, which is unfortunate for small business's with limited budgets. Your job ads can not say plural words in the tile and body of the position descriptions, when all other applicant sites we use allow plural words/rates/locations in the description and title. This is frustrating and it seems like Indeed is hiking up it's prices left and right, and Indeed has just become to competitive price wise for our business to use it anymore. Indeed used to be our #1 site to go to, now we can not afford to use Indeed which is a bummer, because it did bring in a lot of traffic for us!

    Pros

    Indeed brought us lots of resume traffic, it definitely beat out other competitor sites as far as results and getting resumes and applicants though the door! Indeed is a well known name and the site is very easy to navigate!

    Cons

    Indeed was not easy to keep track of resumes that had been submitted, and I did not like that Indeed has so many restrictions on your job posts.

    Pros

    That it is another option for applying for jobs and seeing different postings/ different pool.

    Cons

    It seemed to only offer a specific category of jobs rather than a broad category based off my experience.

    Overall, I feel Indeed was a great start up for me. I’ve landed a lot of great jobs on indeed & I would definitely recommend Indeed to any person that’s starting their career for entry level positions

    Pros

    What I like most about indeed is how it’s categorized for occupations & all the filters they offer when the job search activity. The resume build is really unique as well on how they save it to your profile & when you apply you can make any changes to it constantly, as well as choose if you want to omit any personal content information for each job.

    Cons

    We’ll unfortunately, I did not find Indeed was very help as my work history began to build over the years which brought me to the conclusion that this site is good for finding entry level jobs & supplemental income.
