I love the zip recruiter app! I have been looking for work for about 4 months to no avail. Started using the zip recruiter app after I tweaked my resume and got instant results. Zip recruiter lets me know when a possible employer opened and looked at my app/resume that I submitted, indeed and the several staffing agencies do not do this. The 1 click apply is awesome, just make sure that the resume you saved on zip recruiter is the one that you want to use, there is not reviewing your app or resume with the 1 click apply. I would however recommend to zip recruiter that they require companies to post pay/compensation ranges they are are willing to offer instead of forcing potential applicants to search on their own. This gives the companies free market research on what they can get away with paying people and it basically will make people devalue their potential pay at a future employer in the chance that they will obtain the position. Also, there are companies that like to mask sales jobs under different names. Just take your time to make sure you read and know what the expectations from you are and how your pay is based, which I have noticed a lot of the companies have done that.
I really like this service. They do a pretty good job of matching jobs, although I sometimes get weird jobs sent to me..example: I am a social worker and frequently get nursing jobs sent to me. But it’s not a big deal. I haven’t come across scams-those tend to be in sales and some customer service. I like that Zip keeps you up to date on your application status such as emails each time a prospective employer views your app. It’s encouraging, which I like since job searching can be a blow to your ego. I’ve had times my app has been viewed 3 times and Ziprecruiter gets excited with you. Love that! Their job pool is kind of small compared to Indeed and Career Builder, but I like that. I’m just putting my toe in the water in looking for a job after a long time of not working. I think once I get more serious I will make Ziprecruiter my first choice, but I will most likely use Indeed too...adding more search help as needed. If you want personalized service and encouraging emails along the way choose Ziprecruiter. Plus their 1-tap apply is a great feature too!!
The first & only job I applied to on here was the job I ended up getting (yay). So this app/website works really well to help you find a job, but it has some areas that could be improved. For example the messages tab, whenever I would receive a message I never got a notification from the app. I would only get emails, which okay yes they work but I think it would be useful to have a way to get notifications from the app. Plus between the time of my interview and my first day I tried to message my new employer on through it, and he said he saw it and replied. But I never got that message. The other issue I kept having (and why the rating is so low), is that even though I updated my account MULTIPLE times saying I got hired already nothing would stop the emails. I also tried to unsubscribe and it still hasn’t stopped. I’m not getting a ton of emails, but I am getting quite a few on a regular basis. I was also getting at least 1/2 notifications a day from the app too but I finally just turned those off. Please just make it easier to hold or deactivate an account. Once these things are fixed I think it would be an amazing app, I’m just tired of all the emails right now.
I have used the app a little less than 90 days now. It could be one of the best, but staffing agencies are searching for candidates here. They call often with the same line "hi, I saw your resume posted on the site". I have not applied for staffing agencies and have no interest to do so. It is frustrating to receive calls for dishwasher, server, file clerk, or administrative assistant positions when I have several college degrees, certifications, and years of experience. The reps are always rude and hang up when I refuse their offers. My resume should not be readily available to be shopped out to their employers. Also, most of the employers that I am matched with here or that I have applied to do not follow up on the applications. Instead, they post the same job on a different site at a later time. I received a single call back this week, after clicking "super apply" two weeks ago for an HR position on the site. The company rep, who also turned out to be another staffing agency rep, called to offer me an office assistant position, not an HR position. The site has not served my needs at all. I hesitate to apply for anything because I do not want to be contacted by rude staffing agencies for jobs that I am not interested in.
The idea of the app is great and I agree you can get a lot of interviews but by the wrong companies. From the moment I got this app the only companies calling me....and over and over again were desperate marketing companies and scamming companies. I would get calls for interviews and then call back with an additional question and then the phone line would suddenly not exist or be disconnected. The app has a feature that gives you the ability to adjust the job postings and notifications you get and after I adjusted it to surely specifically remove marketing, sales and “costumer service rep” jobs, and tailored my search to jobs I wanted nothing changed and I continued to get postings from the same marketing companies. These companies were such a mess that They didn’t even send me an interview address and would continually send me confirmation emails with no real information on them, I ended up just canceling the few that I had just because It almost didn’t even seem safe to go after not even being able to find the company on Glassdoor or google. The app is a good idea but the companies in relationship to it or horrible It’s amazing how the app shows 5 star and clearly there are several 1 stars...
