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 allowed me to use my location and job preference to search for jobs in my area. It helped me search for jobs in high school. It is not as conducive for me in searching for internships but great for short term jobs!

10/10. As a Human Resources professional, I use Indeed quite a lot to market and post job postings. I would say I have achieved a 90-95% fulfillment rate from Indeed over other similar services. Great value for money! And on the other side of things, as a person searching for a position, I love Indeed. It's UI is intuitive and its useful features like similar job postings are amazing.

Indeed has helped me get multiple jobs. Most people would always think a free site just is not going to cut it but Indeed stands up to the test. I have got several good paying jobs through indeed and continue to use anytime I have to search for a job, or even when I am just mad at my current and seeing what is out there.

I have applied to multiple jobs on Indeed.com. I have always appreciated the layout of their website and how they confirm every job you apply to by email. When logged in you can also view the jobs you have "liked" but not yet applied to as well as all of those you have applied to. The jobs on there are thoroughly explained and there is a wide variety of types of jobs on their website as well as distinctions in part-time, full-time or seasonal openings.

I like Indeed, but I wish my company had a little higher rating. The ratings seem to only reflect disgruntled people and not the many, many other employees who would likely rate us positively. How could you incentivize people to go on Indeed and leave positive ratings, instead of just capturing disgruntled reviews?

I've been using Indeed to hunt jobs since I graduated college in 2013. Job hunting is stressful but Indeed made things a lot easier to do. I put in a lot of work on the initial set up and after that, I was able to focus on finding the perfect job for me. Submitting applications was a breeze and I have found my forever career home thanks to the easy phone app. It is the greatest place to hunt jobs for free.

In the very beginning when I was making my career choices in 2014, I visited indeed.com and to my surprise, I found that our industry, the I.T industry had millions of jobs. To be honest, I was able to choose from several jobs. In order to prepare for my applications, I read the job descriptions word for word and also noticed that indeed.com had career advice, salary info and so much more I could use to get the job. I could also apply to part of the team at indeed. Thank you indeed, indeed.com

Indeed is a great place to look for a job, but when you type in keywords or a specific job it often times pulls up other jobs that are unrelated.
