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.

I used Indeed Job finding website service when i was looking for a job in the real estate and marketing industries. Indeed provided an in depth questionaire to hone in on relevant jobs that met my criteria and i was given dozens of job leads to look into. Every day i would receive several fresh new job ooenings to apply for and as a result, i quickly found a great job that matched my skills and experience. Indeed is an excellent leads source for tons of quality jobs with applications instantly submitted and recommendations based on your search criteria that really narrow down the search time for relevant jobs!

I have obtained a few jobs through indeed.com. It has a feature where employers can find you and contact you based on their criteria. It keeps your resume on your account and makes it super easy to apply for a job with just a couple of clicks. They have job offers of every type and location. I often consult the company reviews because it is an excellent source for really learning about a company because who knows better than those on the inside?

I have used Indeed twice to find a new place of employment. I highly recommend this app as it helped me find my current job which I am absolutely in love with. I was able to narrow my search and enter parameters that were important in my job search. Applying through the app was so simple, and the companies that use indeed are very responsive. I used other job search sites like Monster and they were a nightmare to maneuver and the companies were not that responsive. Overall, I would use indeed over everything else out there...not that I will need to as I found my forever job!

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.

Yes they come across with multiple listings, but the problem I had was that many of the listings were not for jobs even close to where I lived. Many were out of town and out of state even. If I wanted to look for a job in another state I wouldn't have asked for jobs in my current city. I never got a job through them, and only 3 interviews for positions I was well qualified for. Not a satisfied user.

Indeed has been great with helping me find a job. With Indeed, I was able to apply to 5-10 jobs a day without a whole lot of effort on my part. I also liked that Indeed told you if you were qualified for a job or not, so you could save yourself the time of applying. I would tell anyone looking for a job to use Indeed in their job search.

Indeed is my favorite company to use when searching for jobs. I really enjoy their algorithm and how it shows you jobs similar to what you have been looking at. I also like that include their estimate of what the pay would be if the company does not state it themselves. I'd certainly recommend Indeed if you are looking for a job.

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

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.,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.

This is one of the main sites I have used when searching for a job in the past, including my current company. Lots of different search options, including age of job posting. This is a critical thing. In my experience, when a posting is on there for over 30 days, they are either fishing for resumes for the future or the position is continually open. (ie...high turnover.) I like to search for about a dozen different settings rather than a "One filter fits all" type of search board. Also, I have been on the hiring side using Indeed. Easy, robust and got a lot of suitable resumes with very few bad fits. Used it before, will use it again.

Coined the market for seekers and employers to connect. Indeed to linkedIn is like craigslist to facebook. Indeed is opportunity in posts by area, and linkedIn is a professional profile. Its funny how they are trying to offer what the rival offers more and more. However indeed has provided the connection to 2 major life altering jobs I have acquired and LinkedIn is what I would include as a back up to provide a sort of public or peer verified proof of credential. Together they are great, alone I would choose Indeed, but realistically you should use both. Every other platform is a waste unless they have captured a niche community over an occupation. Indeed- in trying to provide a negative remark or issue with indeed, I can not think of one, they are working their way through things like using your indeed resume to apply for a job, and most let you, I absolutely hate coming across a company that requires you to fill put their specific application and refuse to use the indeed format to make it easier. Not indeeds fault. I do wish they had a better template to provide resume info, or maybe one that can be made to be unique to you. Not using indeed? You must not need that job, Or maybe your tech-challenged and didnt even make it passed the first level of the job interview……. indeed is a platform that naturally filters out the technology incompetent.

Indeed gave me many options for jobs, and was very helpful in resume transfer. My only issue with Indeed is that I wish they held employers more accountable for replying to applicants through their app. You could apply to 40 jobs, and not receive a response from the app at all for any of them. They should keep employers accountable for checking their Indeed advertisements.

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).
