Wow what a waste of my time!
The amount of fake job ads posted on here is ridiculous!!!! So many jobs that were posted months ago- if the job is over 30 days old it’s expired. The company either found somebody or they were never hiring in the first place. How this company even still operates is beyond me. The most I ever found on this job app was a 1099 gig.I don’t think most employers actually respect or view Zip Recruiter as a legit job site.
Like the other job apps they just want your information because you are the product.
I just wanted to update the word document with my newest résumé, but instead it decided to wipe my entire profile clean of my work history and certifications, and to attempt to redo everything based on the new word document. But your word document scanning is not that great, so I lost a lot of data because it just can’t read my résumé the way a human could.
Now I have to fill out my profile AGAIN.
My advice, fix that. Uploading a resume only uploads a resume and does not DELETE data and start the profile from scratch!
I love the one click application process. If you have a halfway decent resume related to your applied field you can get an interview from this cite. I have two interviews for two separate law offices with in a few days of applying. I only applied for 10 jobs. That’s pretty good. It’s good to
have an opposition to Indeed that is effective. I’m willing to recommend this to my colleagues family members!
Many of the “jobs” are just scams. One job told me I needed to pay them for a “desk”. Another said I needed to pay them to rent a vehicle from them before I could start. I already have a Honda, I don’t need to rent a vehicle from you. There’s no way to report scams in the app and if there is, they’re not listening because I see the same scam job from the same scam company weeks later.
I see many misleading postings. I click on what seems to be a comparable job and it takes me to a different site that has nothing for me, and now my personal info is in the hands of job site spammers.
I also can’t seem to delete old, or no longer relevant jobs. I used zip in the past. Im starting to wonder now….
Yes you read that right DAILY not even monthly you don’t even sign up for it but they say you did I have another month to have like $1000 bill and post a high-level job offering and you get Burger King former employees playing fort and zip says that’s a high quality match. Zipper recruiter is a joke.
Constantly gave me jobs I didn’t meet the requirements for, so I started saying I was interested in them. (They required college diplomas and at the time I didn’t even quite have my high diploma). Now it just constantly says there’s no jobs available.
In the past I have used other job search engines but this one really takes the cake. I found a great job and the pay was better than expected. It did take some time to find the right fit for me but I’m glad I didn’t settle and kept looking.
When trying to find jobs in my area, the app shows me jobs, regardless of my settings, over 100 miles away. This renders the app unusable for me.
Zip Recruiter is the best thing I have found when it comes to looking for a job. It is simple to apply to jobs, over exceed my expectations.
