The Good

  • Price range
  • Reach
  • Special features
  • Experience
Price Range
Employers have two standard options to post job listings with Indeed. Post a job for free
  • Listing appears in general search results
  • Can accept mobile applications only
  • Manage candidates directly from Indeed account
Sponsor jobs for $5+/day
  • Listing appears above free listings in sponsored search results (these jobs receive up to five times more clicks than the free listings)
  • Pay only when people click on jobs, up to the amount set in budget
  • Can reach more candidates through desktop, mobile, and job alerts
For businesses with large numbers or especially ambitious hiring goals, Indeed's sales team can help design a custom hiring campaign.
Reach
180 million people visit Indeed.com every month, and the company has a talent database of over 60 million resumes. Indeed's services are available in over 50 countries and in 28 languages.
Special Features
  • Users can operate the salary search bar to find the median salary of all current jobs matching the search query-which could include a mix of skills, keywords, and job titles. This search tool is keyword-based and uses market rates rather than data from previous years.
  • Indeed's extensive resume database has more than 60 million resumes-all of which can be searched and viewed for free on Indeed. Employers can contact their first 100 candidates for free, and then pay $1 per contact after that.
  • Company pages within Indeed allow businesses to build their talent brand for free. Company pages can include photos, stories, reviews, announcements, and other company information that can give job candidates insights about potential employers. Employers can also engage with customers by responding to reviews.
Experience
Indeed was established in 2004 in Austin, TX.

The Bad

  • Resources and learning materials
  • Customer support
Resources and Learning Materials
Indeed's learning materials are scarce. Aside from a few job search tips, there is a press room that covers company media coverage and news, and as well as a blog that is about average compared to other job search blogs. We did find one article particularly amusing though: comparing the home city labor markets of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors during the 2016 NBA Finals.
Customer Support
Indeed's help center addresses account issues, job alerts, job search tips, resume file management, and applying for a job. For further concerns, users can submit a request to be contacted via email after declining a few suggested topics. While this is a pretty efficient way of handling queries, Indeed would come across as more customer-friendly if a ticket could be submitted without needing to jump through any hoops.

The Bottom Line

Indeed is a fantastic search engine for both employers and job seekers. Job seekers have the option of selecting different salary ranges as part of the advanced search-an important option that really should be the norm among job search engines, but is surprisingly not! Employers can pay for services in small increments ($1 for each resume contact after 100 free, $5 for each sponsored job posting per day) rather than committing to a full month of services that may or may not be fully utilized.

Indeed has been amazing at sending me updated job listings! Even after months of creating a profile, I still receive emails with new job suggestions based off of my work experience. Indeed makes it so easy for anyone to find employment.

Indeed made finding the right job easy. I was able to limit the jobs I saw to ones that had the days and hours I wanted. They sent me emails with new jobs that fit what I was looking for. They also coached me on my resume to help me be a better candidate.

Indeed has a great user interface making it easy and intuitive for me to find what I’m looking for. On the other hand their search system is not great and I often feel like the search engine could be improved somehow. All in all, though I have used indeed to get a job before and it worked well for the most part!

After losing my job in November, I wasn’t sure where to even begin in the job search process. A friend suggested I try out indeed and I am so glad I did. Indeed allows you to search for jobs in your area with a simple click and makes the application process smooth. The website even allows you to upload your resume so you can easily apply to jobs with one click! After a few weeks and many interviews, I have now found my perfect new job. Indeed allowed me to narrow my searches closer to my area and within my skill level.

First of all the emails are annoying but besides that I’ve been using them for years and it’s so simple. It’s condensed all in one job site but you have access to so many different companies, and job types it’s incredible. Pick a resume you want to send and just keep applying over and over. They ask questions every so often to better understand what your looking for or what your skills are and these get updated. They have a great filtering system as well which is superb

I use indeed at least once a month to look at the different jobs available in my area. I like indeed because you can customize your job search to look for specific work or you can look at all the jobs that have been posted in your area. Indeed is easy to navigate and usually provides a link directly to the job application or website.

I use Indeed less now in my career (I mainly focus on LinkedIn), but earlier in my career I loved using Indeed. I used Indeed for more entry-level roles around marketing, media editing, and even social media management work that's part time. I've used Indeed to find roles focused on content development, video editing, and other similar tasks. I think Indeed is great for these types of roles (far, far superior to Craigslist), but less so for full time career jobs (where LinkedIn is superior).

Indeed has been helpful to find open jobs in the market and to sometimes be able to submit your résumé right from the job posting. It is also great because you can specify a radius for travel when looking for a job location.

Indeed is a go to for recruitment. As a recruiter, I received more traffic and responses from Indeed than any other source, but at times, the quality was not as "top notch" or as much as a fit as some more-targeted search capabilities. But it is much more reasonable in price.

Every job interview I have had in the last 10 years has happened because I used Indeed. Also, every job I have applied for and gotten an interview for, I have been hired. It’s extremely easy to create an account and a resume on there. Plus you can add your skills which has benefited me a ton. Employers have almost always responded and asked for an interview the next day. My current job had me come in from an interview the next day, then I started working the next day. It’s an extremely important and useful phone application, and it doesn’t take up much space.

When I was searching for a summer job in my hometown, indeed was the first place I went to and they provided me with many different jobs and opportunities in my area that I could take part in with my current level of skills. Though I unfortunately did not get to fully get a job that summer, indeed did a good job of providing me with a lot of my possible options.

Indeed has always been my go-to site for job search. It lets you search up job descriptions and it provides you with a list of job opportunities. It will usually have a full description of the job, as provided by the employer. Maybe they could add some features, such as informaiton about the community, but overall the site is easy to use.

indeed.,com is a top notch search engine for jobs. I knew what I wanted from my future job: Full benefits, full time, paid vacation, a specific wage, within a certain distance from my home etc...I fine tuned my job search with the parameters I listed above. Thousands of job were available. I sifted through the jobs and applied with my resume and cover letter. I was able to perform job assessments to allow any employer to review. Perspective employers contacted me through the site. I was able to look at my job contact history to keep track of my interviews. I highly recommend Indeed com if you or someone you know is in need of a job.

In my opinion, Indeed is the best place to look for a job if you have a college degree, are white-collar, or have years of experience. If you're looking for a fast-food job or something simple while you're in school, there are other avenues to take when job hunting. I'm in accounting and I found my current job through Indeed.
