About ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter, found online at ZipRecruiter.com, is a job posting website designed for both companies looking for new employees and for job seekers who are hoping to find employment.

People who are currently in a job search just need to sign up in order to get access to daily job alert emails, and the website promises that receiving these emails is completely free. ZipRecruiter earns money through the companies that pay them to distribute their job postings.

The website claims to be the best way for a company to post jobs, and the fastest way to get your job across the web. Once you submit your job post it will be distributed to over 40 different job boards, like Indeed and SimplyHired. They will also submit your postings to Monster and CareerBuilder.com for an extra fee.

Submitting a job post just requires you to provide a job title, company name, location, job category, and job description and can be initially posted for free. In order to get all the benefits of ZipRecruiter, you’ll need to upgrade to one of their monthly paid memberships.

Their most basic plan is the Starter Plan, which gets you 3 active job slots and access to 50 resumes a month for $59/mo, and goes all the way up to the Big Hiring Plan gets you 50 active job slots and access to 1,000 resumes a month for $199/mo, with a range of plans in between.

They also have an Enterprise Plan which gives you unlimited job posting and access to 5000 resumes a month, but you must call them directly for pricing. For any plan that you are interested in, you can opt to have a 4 day free trial.

These plans will get you access to daily job alert emails so you can reach millions of active job seekers, allow you to save time by managing job candidates in one place, and reach job seekers through social networking platforms.

Companies who are unhappy with the service can request a refund of the last month's payment; members who have paid in advance for 6 and 12 month plans must cancel within 30 days of purchase for a refund.

Bait and switch



June8, 2016

Thought it was a good price 3 active job listings for $59 plus a free month trail if you wait for the code in the mail but then you find out the free trial is only FOUR DAYS and if you don't cancel in time they'll charge your credit card $249!! Will NEVER sign up for this website or recommend it to anyone. Even when you try and chat with someone for help through their live chatting service they spell your name wrong and stop talking to you after about three messages.

Cannot believe how awful this business is.

GMX is a legitimate email service. I don't see why you feel the need to bring that up.

April 13, 2016

Well Vinnie,

I am bringing it up because EVERYTIME I use Zip Recruiter, I get inundated with spam jobs from people using this email address service. Doesn't happen with Indeed, CareerBuilder, or Monster.

A real recruiter would not be using this sort of email address to recruit for a Warehouse Management job with a salary of $80,000 with EXTRAORDINARY benefits, and also not include any sort of contact information other than that stupid gmx.com email address. Also, if it were legitimate and not spam, they would cease to stop contacting me when I asked them to stop.

You must be one of those "recruiters" using that annoying email address. Better yet, provide me with your email address and I'd be more than happy to forward the job postings to you. It sounds like you have nothing else better to do and need a job....working in a warehouse.

As someone searching for job openings, I have found that many of the jobs listed on ZipRecruiter don't even exist. I check the company's website (if ZipRecruiter reveals the company), and find they have no such opening. I am highly suspicious of ZipRecruiter.

Shady practices



February24, 2016

I signed up for the free 4 day trial. Too bad they charged my credit card WELL before the trial date was up. Very shady practice! I will never use this site again and will not recommend this to anyone.

Disappointment - No Results, No Response from candidates, Seems SCAM



December11, 2015

As a small non-profit school looking for a teacher to fill a position, we wanted to like Zip-recruiter. Had high hopes - there are many emails. Lots of emails which are connecting us with possible candidates. When our business has tried to contact 20+ candidates that had expressed interest in our position both through ZP and the "direct" email of candidate there is no follow up or response of "TRUE" interest.
There was never a response following. Are these even real Candidates? Real people?
Highly Doubtful!!
Huge Waste of Money.
Disappointment.

Not really a free trial... scam advertising



October10, 2015

I wanted to try this service because of its claims of posting jobs to multiple sites. I was needing a few freelance photographers in New York (freelance, as in you are paid per picture). I didn't like the fact that the company requested all my personal information along with a credit card just to try the service. As soon as I posted my job, I got an email stating my account had been closed for violation of terms, yet they did not disclose which term I violated. After reviewing the terms of agreement, me advertisement fit all criteria for a typical FREELANCE position. It seems that since I didn't want to sign up for their premium paid subscription, I was tossed aside. However, they were able to obtain my personal information AND credit card info. Looking at their site, there are more scam job offers on there than on Craigslist and Backpage combined. This site is an identity theft site... BEWARE. Don't use it to post job and certainly DO NOT REPLY to any of the job listing because so many of them are fake!

Scam



August11, 2015

Claims to post your ad to 100+ job boards. After posting my ad (and waiting 48 hours to give them a fighting chance), I visited a dozen of the "job boards" ziprecruiter claims to utilize, my ad was not on ANY of the sites. It's pathetic enough that the "job boards" they utilize are websites I seriously doubt any job seeker ever uses, but even with the paltry offering they couldn't bother to post my ad on any of them. The only place the ad was posted was on ziprecruiter's own website. Absolute ripoff.

Also, note on the free trial, it's a 4 day free trial, but you have to cancel on the 3rd day as if you're still using it on the 4th day they charge you immediately (12:01 AM), so really more of a 3 day trial. And since they say it takes 24 hours for the ad to be posted, it's really more of a 2 day trial.

Absolutely no results in Applicant Search



May5, 2015

The "free" trial period is a scam. They insinuate that you have 2 full days of service, but need a credit card up front so they can charge you on the 2nd day for a month's subscription. Don't fall for this trap! They say it takes a day or 2 to post, but you will have to pay for the service before you can evaluate the result!
