First the positive- Zip Recruiter makes it easy to search and apply for jobs. I love that about the app.
Now the negative and frustrating -Zip Recruiter has a lot of job options, but the suggested jobs are often ridiculous. My resume only lists high level accounting and banking. Yet I get job suggestions with “Great Match” for jobs such as OTR truck driving , line operator and order picker in addition to accounting. Not that there is anything wrong with these jobs, they just aren’t in my area of expertise. (I’ve never even been in the cab of an 18 wheeler!)
I entered $90k as my minimum job requirement based on my level of expertise and experience, but I keep getting entry level accounting jobs at $19 and $20 an hour in my list of suggested jobs.
My search is for a Controller position, and I’ve never opened a job suggestion for a tax accountant. However the subject line for most emails I receive from Zip state “More jobs like tax accountant”. (In fact, this was the email with the OTR truck driving suggestion.) The algorithms need a lot of work so people can find the jobs they are interested in and qualified for.
No where on my resume does it say I’m a registered nurse, but for some reason all i get recommended are nursing jobs. Then i tell you that the jobs aren’t satisfactory and all you do is send more of the same jobs. I don’t have a CDL but all you recommend are jobs that require a CDL. Please stop using artificial intelligence cause y’all aren’t teaching it the right thing. Its more ignorant than intelligent. The regular expressions that you are using to match so called “keywords” need to be revamped. At this rate I’ll never get a job using this app, and please don’t ask me to send you an email cause its not going to be a nice one.
I don’t like to write reviews normally but this app deserves all the credit it gets, I have found every single job other than my first one up to this point because of this app, they make it possible for managers to like your profile and reach out to you, it has one tap apply so I haven’t had to fill my info over and over, and it makes applying to all the jobs you want seamless. The best part is there is none of that stuff done apps do where they have some free features, and some paid, it’s all free, I highly recommend this app
Literally minutes after signing up I was bombarded by scam emails all saying employers saw my resume and want to schedule and interview now. Clicking the links takes you to a fraudulent website which I can only assume collects more information to sell.
Deleting the account also takes 72 hours I’m sure that’s so they can squeeze every last cent out of you.
I was looking for anything I can do remote. Zip Recruiter dose not offer that option and it’s filters are very limited. You can only search by city and radius. If you are looking for an app with better filters, Indeed has two apps. One that covers everything you will need and one specifically for remote work.
This app shows me jobs that are not even relevant to my resume and the distances are outrageous! You need to better update this app to help people because this app didn’t help me AT ALL. I’ve had it In my phone for almost 2 months now and I have yet to have a job reach out to me.
This is such a easy app to navigate. I just started today And filling out the profile was easy as 1,2,3. With that being said I hope I can land a few interviews and eventually a J.O.B. Like I said so far so good! Thank you!
This App does Not support work from home job seekers. Half the nation is seeking to stay home and work and this app isn’t ready to support those workers find opportunities! Big NO for me
After I signed up and input my information a torrent of spammy scam jobs are still filling my inbox!!!! Do yourself a favor and stick with Indeed and Glassdoor!!
I am unsubscribed from all emails and you still keep sending me emails. STOP!! PLEASE!! Hourly or salary to all would be nice.
