A Job Board With The Job Seekers In Mind

Pros

Indeed is for the job seeker. It has the most resume creating tools that I have personally seen on the internet. It allows for users to easily input skills, job experience, certifications, schooling, and more! The skills tracking is my personal favorite. I am able to input how long I have been doing something, which I believe makes me stand out among other job seekers. When a hiring manager can easily see that I have been doing certain tasks that they are hiring for for over a decade, it allows them to quickly see which candidate may be the most qualified for a specific task or position.
Another feature that I really like are the skills tests. You are able to take skills tests across many different fields and skills. And depending on your score, you can show which results you do and do not want to show on your profile and resume. It allows you to further prove what areas and skills you might be an expert in, without having to just tell a hiring manager in a long-winded cover letter or resume.

Cons

I wish that there were more format options when it comes to downloading your resume on Indeed. Although overall the resume building experience is wonderful and one of my favorite parts, when downloading the resume for my own use outside of Indeed, it can only act as a starting template of information rather than a final product. It does not appear very professional and is more than 1 or 2 pages long when trying to fit everything in.

Indeed for Nonprofit hiring

In my opinion they are the best job search and posting website, but they charge more than some nonprofits like us can afford. It's easy to use and yields results, but very expensive. However, our best new employees have come from Indeed, because people who use Indeed know what they want in a career and are ready to get to work.

Pros

We had the best applicants from Indeed. If someone is serious and dedicated to finding the right job and career, they will spend the time and money to apply and post resumes. This weeds out applicants who are not very serious or professional. The specificity of profiles and areas of interest helps us find candidates with the right credentials and experience.

Cons

It is extremely costly, especially to a startup business. As a nonprofit working to end homelessness for adults living with severe mental illnesses, I thought that a giant corporation like Indeed would be interested in helping with taxes or offering a little support.

Does Indeed work for people looking for work?

I think Indeed bought advertising on national media with a promise from the ad agency that said we will create a news story about a job shortage, so people will apply to everything. This works to brand Indeed as the go to source for applications, but it has not been a good hiring tool nor a good resource for finding work. Maybe it's because the algorithm is only set up for certain words, though I posted a job request before when I was looking to hire, and I don't remember the parameters being that specific. All in all, this is an easy software to use from both a business hiring perspective and a job application perspective, but it fails to provide a good match for people looking for work. I wish they could get it right because in theory, it should be a great tool. In practice though, a 1% response rate for people ready to work is ridiculous.

Pros

This software makes it easy to upload your resume and apply for jobs. It even offers to match you with jobs you qualify for. The sort and filter features are general, so any applicant has to wade through a ton of listings to find a match, and often the listings are duplicated, meaning you see the same ones on page after page, with new listings mixed in.

Cons

Because it's so easy to submit applications, employers are inundated with a ton of resumes. That doesn't bother me, but it makes it harder for them to respond to applicants, and creates a situation where it feels like the employer just doesn't care. I literally submitted over one hundred applications for jobs I'm qualified to do, and got one response. One. And that wasn't even an interview, that was just an email response that said thanks for applying.

Synonymous with excellence in Human Talent Recruiting...!!!

A significant problem arises when applicants do not complete their resumes on Indeed and submit a partial resume for a job. Ease of use is evident when looking at potential candidates for open positions. Be very clear about the quality of resumes based on those sent through Indeed. It makes my work life very simple.

Pros

In addition, the filter questions and interview functions of mobile phones and smartphones save a lot of time, effort, and effort. I used to waste candidate time and schedule the telephonic interview to do what Indeed now routinely does for me. Although it is the best application in terms of recruiting and UI, it is amicable and easy to integrate. We have integrated it with our company software and imported and exported the candidate contacts files directly.

Cons

I don't like being optional for candidates to list their positions. Sometimes we get applications from candidates who passed the evaluation but ended up not being local. I also want candidates to verify their phone number, as some candidates add an inactive number to the question making it difficult to contact them. Apart from that, it is mind-blowing application.

Indeed has helped our company thrive!

Indeed has improved our company since we have started using this application for new hires, we are able to quickly find new applicant perfectly suited to our job description and quickly read through each resume with ease, we have become a better business because of indeed. This application almost always works perfectly.

Pros

In my opinion the resume search tool has been the most used application for the company, it has impacted our company to hire many applicants that are perfect for the job, integrating our business software with indeed has been an easy experience and minimized our workload while maximizing our company's applications

Cons

I feel as if the the workflow feature could definitely be worked on, we have issues with our software updating what we input into this feature, we have some application crashes often as well as glitches.

Alternatives Considered

LiveAgent, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and Amazon S3

Reasons for Switching to Indeed

We chose indeed other other products because it was a much cheaper alternative with more software features than competitors, to help maximize our companies workflow and increase our employees.
