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.

Text Scams

Reviewed By Darby on December 15, 2016

Since I started applying on ziprecruiter.com, I've received a texts from people claiming to be with a companies I've never even applied for. What's worse, is half the time they text me from phone numbers with area codes that are no where near where I live, but also don't match the area where the company they claim to be from is even located. Just today I got one from a guy with a 469 area code (Dallas, TX) claiming to be from Mologen AG which is a company that's not even based in America! It's German pharmaceutical company based out of Berlin. When I first looked up the company on Google, it pulls up a website that's only in German. Don't bother with Zip Recruiter. It's literally just a den for scammers to try and take advantage of people who are desperately seeking jobs. Like many reviews before mine, I have also NEVER been contacted by any employer I've applied with on Zip Recruiter. It's an utter waste of time and really disheartening for people who really are trying hard to find a job.

I just gotta email from zip recruiter and it is definitely is a scam. Started out will a long intro of the company. Then he's away on trip at the moment. Job title is Personal Assistant three days a week $780 a week mmmm no. And the info they wanted was first last name address phone # and Bank name. The last thing they did in this email was attached a zip recruiter form that I had filled out. It look like a screen shot. Heads up guys. Some of us don't fall for scams some do. These are all red flags.

I am on Fire (Job Seeker)

Reviewed By Jennifer on December 14, 2016

I have applied to numerous job postings on ZipRecruiter for over a month and I have received one call from a staffing agency but here is the twist I receive text alerts from ZipRecruiter saying your application was reviewed and you're heating up then I get the I am on fire text which indicates my application has been reviewed three times by hiring manager but guess what NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THOSE COMPANIES who viewed my application whether it be once twice or three times a scam has ever contacted me. According to ZipRecruiter the staffing agency that did actually contact me never even viewed my application!!!!

Not impressed at all .

Spam-Scam

Reviewed By Lexi on November 12, 2016

After signing up, I received numerous emails from "HR Departments" asking me to contact them because"attempts to contact me had been unsuccessful." (I'd had no phone calls). After researching the emails, some were MLM schemes, and others were companies that didn't exist. Stick with Indeed.

I've been getting these messages as well to interview via Google Hangouts, I don't even know what google hangouts is! Anyway, I kept getting emails that my resume was viewed over and over again so I googled the company and they aren't even in my area so I called them to see if they had any other locations and they told me that someone poached their name and posted hundreds of the same job. I sent ZipRecruiter a message along with documentation of an email with an actual job offer without even interviewing. I hope they take the time to respond.

Didn't realize we have a office in some of the states listed in postings...

Reviewed By Cyndi Castelline on September 26, 2016

Recently had an applicant approach me regarding a resume that they submitted to a Work from Home Admin position that my company has open in CA. When I looked through ZipRecruiter's site, I found a number of postings under my company's name but the positions aren't real and they're at locations that don't exist. I'm in HR/recruitment so I would have visibility to this information. I'm not sure how my employer's name came to be used in this fashion, but it's troubling.

I applied for a job a couple of weeks ago through Ziprecruiter. Today I had an email asking me to log onto Google/hangout for an online interview. From the minute the interview started, it seemed highly suspicious. The person interviewing me had horrible written English, and they started asking me questions about where I live etc. I immediately disconnected from the online chat. It was very clearly a scam of some sort. Very upsetting, when you are putting your heart and soul into looking for a legitimate job, to be subjected to something like this.

Spammy and faulty applicant tracking systems don’t help anyone. Jobscore makes it easy for hiring directors to find the exact right candidates for their openings. Jobscore can list job openings on career sites like Monster or Craigslist with one click #autoposting, increasing the flow of applicants to a company and strengthening the pool of candidates.
