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.

Is it Legitimate? My ratig is actually ???** Meaning, I don't know
They allow you to submit a job with your monster account, but when i searched for the same job on monster, it wasn't listed. there was also no office listed on the company's website for the job that ziprecruiter listed or, even an office in the city the job was supposed to be in. is this a scam on ziprecruiter's part? I noticed "(copy2)" after the title, might this be an indication some 3rd party is using it to collect resumes for data mining purposes?
Better Results With Zip
I left ZipRecruiter for 2 months and went with Indeed. Unfortunately I did not receive any resumes from Indeed that remotely matched the qualifications of the job opening.
Needless to say, I am going back to Zip for better results on my job postings at a very reasonable cost to me.
Good job Zip!!
The best online service I have ever used.
I have been using ZipRecruiter Job Boards for a couple months and the results and the service have been Amazing, I get more qualified applicants then i have ever got using other traditional methods.
The service is the absolute best i have ever received form company web based or not. I have and will continue to recommend this service to anyone looking for good people to help grow or maintain the business.
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
Great assistance for the un-techy
The postings we have done so far look very good. We got plenty of response. However, when we ran into some little glitches (caused by lack of knowledge here), Ziprecruiter (Doug) came to the rescue. His explanations were simple, easy to follow, and worked.
We no longer hesitate to use the service.
Great site, Gets results and easy to use
We have been using Zip for over a year. It is easy to use and post jobs. We get great response to our ads as well. The customer support is very easy to access. I have only used it to discuss upgrading my package as we have not experienced any technical issues with Zip.
Great recruiting resource!
Outdated listings and incorrect.
Not even sure how I got on ZR's mailing list. Doesn't matter. Crappy results that are outdated by at least a week or more. Avoid!
