After filling out applications and going through the fact that most people don’t use indeed for importing their information, I’m very tired of filling out the same information over and over. The integration of information is very lacking. This could be the companies who use indeed, yet it’s still a problem.
As for the application here on apple, the functionality is clunky. The profile does not hold space for a cover-letter. There should be space for that. Not everyone accepts a resume with a cover or one with a separate file. This should be a function of this application.
As for the other processes of this app, when clicking between jobs on the system, it does not track jobs you have already applied for. ie: Searching results display jobs you have applied for without indications that you have completed their applications. This should also be a function. You could heart it, but that does nothing. Heart clears out.
Reporting a job for spam should clear it out of your applied jobs. … I have tried many many times to report a company and they still come up on search results, I hit block, refresh, they are back.
I would rate higher but each problem such as this warrants a lower rating to app. I do not wish to be rude to a developer who has worked very hard on this application but it’s lacking a few basics I believe are necessary and are requested by many employers in various ways. The cover letter should be able to be presented in those ways to those requesting them separate.
Indeed is my go to app to job hunt. And I’ve had to do a LOT of job hunting! My circumstances recently changed from being able to work full time out of the house to part time in the house. What I find complicated with the app is that even if I use the filters to narrow down my job search, it doesn’t really seem to help. I want to look for ONLY part time jobs, which I specified in the filter options. However, the majority of the jobs presented to me are still full time jobs that just won’t work for my schedule. It makes sifting through everything a huge headache and honestly, pretty discouraging. I’m not sure why the filters aren’t working properly (I double checked to make sure I had chosen the right options and that those options were highlighted as being used), but if they would, the app experience would be great and a lot more user friendly. I also think it would be great to be able to specify jobs you DON’T want to see. I’m open to data entry and transcription jobs, but NOT customer service. As of now, you can only look at ALL job listings, or ONE type of job listing. It’s pretty limiting. All in all, Indeed has helped me a lot to find great jobs, but I’ve found it more difficult to use as my circumstances have changed.
In 7 years of using Indeed, I have never found a job using it. Anytime I post for a job, it shows in review and get closed. This makes me so worried because I needed a good job for my self so I can earn a better money. I have a mechanical engineering degree with 20 years of experience, and just imagine I’m unable to get a job due to account closure each time I setup one. This problem continues until I reach out to my friend JAMES, and explained what I’m facing and hard times in getting a job on Indeed. He told me not to worry and introduced me to RANDALL via INDEED RECRUITMENT AGENCY. Randall work with Indeed and can help me post or find a job. He found me a better job in Indeed, not up to one week I met him. Now I have a job with a better pay.. I urge you guys to reach RANDALL RECRUIT AGENCY on their support email: RECRUITURDREAMJOB via GMAIL com. He’s got a very fast and excellent service
You’ll get tons of “we’d love for you to submit a resume” offers that never reply back after you apply. Makes sense. A company allegedly looks at your resume, likes what they see and reaches out to you…. Just to never reply back once you send go and apply.. The algorithm is pretty bad. Just sends you every (not even recent) job posting it can. Perfect example is I’m currently looking for an IT job. So what’s a CDL driver, factory worker, or nurse assistant have to do with cyber security or network admin? Trying to look up specific jobs is difficult because the search engine just seems to again pull anything up. Many of the “jobs” are so called talent agencies that once you think you’re applying for a job. Now you have another spammer sending you “we think we have the perfect job for you” lists. I’ve given this a try for well over a year trying to change jobs. Not worth it.
If you’re looking for anything better than min wage. This isn’t the app for you. Filters don’t really do anything. You constantly get “invites to apply” so you go through the process and apply just to not hear anything back while you’re like “uh you initiated the contact with me?”. If you’re lookin for a specific type of job. Well good luck because filters don’t work, you’re just going to see anything within a distance. Most jobs that “email you” never seem legit. Lost count on how many times a job says it’s one thing then if they contact you it has nothing to do with the advertised page. Like customer service is apparently just insurance sales that promise “you’re going to make tens of thousands of dollars a month”. It just not a good app at all. You’re better off just googling jobs
So it’s a great idea and great app. But there is only one job and one place they have in a 100 mile radius from me. It’s the same place and same jobs everyday. With one thrown in there here and there. I’ve been waiting on a response which says it takes24 hours. To apply or be put on a waiting list for other things that I have experience doing. Well it’s been a month and still says in review. So it’s a great idea. They should hire me for their biz development side or sales. I would get you all a ton of businesses to signup .
I have applied to 15 job postings that I have experience doing and they say they are hiring but no word or email or text or call backs to schedule an interview with them. Only a few job offers that I didn’t apply for and not interested in contacted me , but none that I am interested in. And my gripe with indeed is are they just recycling the same adds over and over again or these companies are actually hiring???? Makes a person wonder if it’s all a scam or a game and no one that I applied to is not actually hiring..
I usually love this app because jobs are added everyday, but lately I have become frustrated with it. It is constantly giving error messages and having me log in a lot. Sometimes I can make the message go away if I click back on the job or go to another tab. But lately I have to close the app then try again. This is frustrating because if I did not add the job then I have to try to find it again. Please fix this!!
I’m truly impressed with everything Indeed has to offer job seekers. I’m fairly sure employers are as well. I’m just disappointed with the lack of importance stressed to me about my skills test when I took them. I wasn’t lead to believe that every other employer could ask for the results. I felt like I was in a time crunch I was disappointed with my results. I rushed through most of the question and
took 15 minutes to sign in. Had to reset my password. Understandable Go through my email and that whole process. Then obviously had to re sign in. All good. Then got hit with the had to set up 2 step verification set up. No way around it. and wait for a text on my phone. Then had to resign in. Then had to re sign in again to confirm im not a bot. Like why make someone go through that Just to look at jobs…
