Indeed Job Search Reviews
How to get a job quick
I gave it one star and it is just not working out for me and I really want to find a great job that’s going to last forever I receive disability checks and I can only have a part-time job but it seems like there’s not any jobs for people that can fit the requirements and I know probably because of my history but I’m just hoping jobs can see past my work history and help me get a great job they can benefit me for the best i’m trying to calculate my timing and hopefully get interviews but it seems so difficult for urban people in the Baltimore city are you to even receive jobs there’s not anything that we can do but just sit around the home and not really exercise our minds to want to achieve goals when you try so hard it feels like I want to give up but I am hoping that more opportunities will come on and eat for urban areas in my city or even outside of the city I haven’t had a interview with Indy and it seems like no one is calling when you want to have a interview with the job that you want they always say I never fit the requirements and that’s disappointing me I am hoping that you guys can indeed Better for the black community especially people that don’t have for other educational skills I graduated from high school and went to a trade school and it’s still difficult I do not know what else to do next
I’ve been using Indeed for several years, both as a job seeker and as a hiring manager. The service itself has been decent; the amount of legitimate jobs is much higher than several other employment services. However, the user interface is incredibly unfriendly and unreliable. The search filters don’t actually filter anything. When I try to filter jobs so that only full-time ones show up, several part-time jobs still appear. When I try to sort jobs by date posted, the jobs on each results page are randomly listed (e.g. first is 20 hours ago, then 8 hours, then 2 days, then 20 hours, then 30+ days, 10 days, 3 hours, and so on). The job market in my area is intensely competitive and fast-paced; you need to be one of the first 2-3 applicants in order to even be considered. Not only is it annoying to have to manually sort through postings after I’ve applied filters, it’s also a great disservice to me as a job seeker. I’ve missed several opportunities as a result of this faulty sorting. It’s actually quite simple to make a query system that accurately sorts by date and time posted. Why Indeed hasn’t implemented such a system is beyond me.
Too many 3rd party emails!
I moved to another state and needed to search for a job, my friend recommended indeed so I downloaded it and started searching after I registered. I applied for a few jobs, next day i had over 58 emails from stupid ads that indeed sold my email to! It’s been a month and I realized that I had missed a few emails from companies that requested me to apply via their website because of so many emails I received from ads and they keep coming! I am forced to open a new email because my junk and inbox are flooded with nothing but useless emails about scholarship, flipping homes, Asian porn, insurance, loans, grants etc... indeed is the worse app ever! It literally takes me a half an hour to go through my emails both inbox and junk JUST to look for responses from companies. Do not download if you don’t want your email given to other 3rd parties. They should have filtered and check for valid businesses before giving out your email. Never again! The salaries are incorrect as posted and the location is way off. I’m receiving job recommendations that are 2 hour drive from where I live. This app has given me nothing but a headache and disappointment.
I have not stopped receiving harassing phone calls since I sent out applications on indeed
I am appreciative of the service indeed performs, and I understand that they probably have to make money to be able to continue, however, I am about to change my number that I have had for ten years bc of you. I am constantly receiving dishonest phone calls telling me they have a job for me or are calling regarding my online job application when they are telemarketers. They aren’t the jobs I applied for and I will get excited and think I got a job and it turns out to be them. There are a lot of them calling now and they change and come from different numbers so blocking does no good. They also make the numbers appear local. I can’t tell you how upsetting it is bc I am aware that they are doing this, but they will make it sound like it’s regarding an application I turned in and it’s actually not. It’s probably one of the worst things you can do to someone who is out of work and trying to find a job. So I do NOT recommend this app unless you are prepared to change your telephone number. Sorry.
*Updated 3/2/18* Since the latest update, this app is horrible!!! The format is harder to read and I only seem to be getting jobs from certain categories not all the jobs. I generally work in two areas: HR and accounting. The jobs I’m mainly seeing are for customer service. I’ve checked my filters numerous times and it doesn’t specify the job type anywhere so I don’t know how to fix it. App constantly says there was an error connecting. Used to use this app all the time.....now it’s just frustrating.
Started out great.....seems like nothing but problems since the last update. Generally it will say (for example) 64 new jobs in my area....when I click on the link to scroll through the new jobs it suddenly changes to (for example) 23 new jobs and then when I go to the next page it says 58 new jobs. Very frustrating!!!! Also I've noticed a huge increase in the number of "sponsored" job postings. These are highly annoying as most are well over 30 days old.....
Above - And - BEYOND
I cant stress how many different jobs apps and websites I been too and they all lead to the same thing, failure. The apps are way too complicated, websites are a wreck and messy, and resumes are beyond hard to make. Once I heard about indeed through a colleague, i checked it out. I now have indeed on my phone, computer, and get daily updates from the app. For the phone, it is an amazing app that is simple, easy, and great functionality to help you easily apply to job in no less then 30 seconds. It actually surprises me how easy it is to apply to a job and how much stress I held back from other apps due to this one. The computer is even easier, with a simple, clean website that provides you with everything you need to know. If you are looking for a job, DOWNLOAD OR CHECK OUT INDEED IMMEDIATELY!
I use this app almost every single day. I still have not found a job but that is because I am looking in a small geographical area in a very specific field. I would give it a 5/5 but I have two problems. 1. Since the new update a few weeks ago I cannot find a way to delete recent searches on my phone. I can on my IPad. There isn’t an edit button, they don’t slide to delete, and I can’t hold them down to delete like other apps. I search a lot and I like to delete some of them. And 2. Once I’ve looked at the new available jobs and return home it tells me the jobs are still there even though I have viewed them. That’s just annoying but I would prefer to be able to delete searches at my leisure. I love everything else about this app but those two things since the update a few weeks ago have bothered me to the point I would rank it as less stars. Thanks for listening, hope it’s fixable.
Indeed has a lot of job sources however I've been using indeed for quite a time now since my unemployment which is now going on 3 months . I've had difficult experiences that I find to be unprofessional at 2 businesses. I applied for paratransit CCT connect in Frankford area or Philadelphia and the application of course went through got offered a position however after going through paper work and 3 days of training then the job tells me I'm not old enough after signing over my signature and giving them info such as my social and i.d . And Which I found to be unorganized and a waste of time And i recently had an interview with Ace check cashing in West Philadelphia and I got offered a full time position in which they never called me back for training and when I reached out I never got a answer or response which is very unprofessional, a waste of time and money .and of course this is after papers for employment were signed . Indeed needs to open the site to business who actually wants to hire people not waste their time .
Needs basic changes ASAP!
Overall the apps interface is very clean and simple to use/navigate through, but I feel like it hasn't evolved in over a year and is actually going backwards.
Most importantly, there is no feature to allow you to delete old inbox messages from previous jobs you applied for. This is unacceptable for many reasons, for one it's a basic feature to be able to delete and clear old message/inbox clutter, but more importantly most of the old messages are either rejections, erroneous old interview scheduling, or just random 'thank you for applying'-type messages. No job seeker should be subject to having to be reminded about rejections every time they open their inbox. They need to add this feature IMMEDIATELY on the app.
What's even more disappointing is while this wasn't an app feature, you DID have the option to delete messages when using a PC or Laptop, but this was actually just taken away inexcusably in July!! So now there is literally no option to delete old, irrelevant messages.
I suggest they change this quick or there are going to be a ton of people including myself just given my business to another job board. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, if you just Google "how do you delete old messages on Indeed" there are several disgruntled users who are baffled this basic yet necessary feature doesn't exist. Please fix the ASAP.
Indeed - Keep up the good work!
I’ve been using this job searching tool for YEARS and quite pleased with the responses from employers I’ve received.. not to mention how much this app has evolved over time. I am actively searching for work right now, which requires me to be on the app daily. One of the biggest complaints I’d like to address is the “messages” section of the app. I often receive these solicitation emails from recruiters I’ve never heard of and I have yet to figure out how to delete them! Please, if this can be fixed ASAP that would be much appreciated! I experience no other issues with this app, but THE MESSAGES.. and that’s a huge inconvenience for me. I want to have the ability to delete all messages I no longer wish to keep. Thanks again Indeed for the updates you’ve undergone, the app has come such a long way. I will for sure continue to utilize this app everyday.
I want to give it two and a half
The app is ok with showing jobs in the areas you select, but the daily messages about jobs that are supposedly “perfect for you based on your resume!” Is a complete joke. My resume lists my experience in the medical field and it keeps sending me emails to apply to security guard jobs or jobs as an assistant manager in sales or it suggests jobs that require things and experience I don’t have, but I’m still perfect for it according to them. It makes no sense and it’s very frustrating.
Top that off with it telling me that I don’t have a resume uploaded when I clearly do, I use it every time I apply for a job and the fact that some employers I have interviewed with don’t get the full copy of my resume sent to them even though when I review it before it’s sent it’s all there makes this app disappointing. So many bugs to fix in it maybe one day it will correct itself, but for now I’d you know of better apps use them this should be a last resort.
App is good, just minor change wishes
The app is fine, although I haven’t received any responses. Possibly because I’m trying to change careers, so we’ll see how it continues to go. The resume feature, when uploaded, needed tweaks that I manually went in and re-did due to it not being an exact copy (ex: my sentences were broken up in ways that didn’t read well, one of my jobs had the incorrect name for employer transferred over) I like the suggestion of a previous review with showing the prospective employer the original resume pdf which I believe shows a little character. A minor pet peeve is seeing “sponsored” jobs multiple times in a single search. Putting them at the top is ok with me, but taking more of my time is a bit much.
Overall I’m back to a 4 star rating (after update fixes). Will continue to keep as a go to for job searching.
Allows Employers Too Hide Behind The Internet
My son has used this sight and others like it for over a year. He's educated and well qualified. Yet he has received only a handful of interviews and no offers of employment. The frustration of having to apply without the benefit of using his likability and good presence is reducing him to hopelessness. It is not from a lack of effort. The amount of time he has devoted to filling out applications and searching job sites like this one, is far beyond what it should require to acquire employment. Canvassing only furthers his frustration as businesses direct employment inquiries to their website or related internet search engines. I see a young man full of promise losing faith in his country and it breaks my heart. Nothing is as fulfilling as landing the job you worked so hard in school to obtain. But it seems as though the heart as been torn out and the experience reduced to a band width of anonymity.
It is only one man's opinion. I hope your experience proves otherwise.
I feel this app is very useful but only in certain states. In Utah this app found me a lot of jobs that not only did I apply for but got back with me so fast I was unemployed for a few days. I didn’t like job hopping but when I saw I job I was doing but paid more I applied. Now living in Arizona it hasn’t been all that good. I don’t feel like employers use it often or if they do it’s not the type of shift that works for me because I have kids & it’s only me & my wife no immediate family. I search for overnights & for some reason some employers think 2/4 PM to midnight is overnight. It’s not it’s swing or 2nd shift. I feel 9 or later is graveyard or 3rd or overnight shift. Haven’t had much success with this app in Arizona I’ve applied to so many different companies but I’ve only had maybe 6 call me for an interview.
I’ve been using indeed for years now and I’ve always mastered at getting successful jobs with no problem. But lately it’s been kind of frustrating when I look up a certain job field and it pulls up everything but what I’m looking for , that cause a lot of frustration on my end. Another thing I have concerns about is why it doesn’t showed that you have already applied for a job. It should remove the jobs you have already applied for vs it just not being bold like the other jobs. It will help with applying for jobs better if you know what jobs you already applied for so that you want keep tryna apply for the same job over and over. Other then that I love indeed and I would highly recommend it too anyone looking for employment fast and easy. Thanks Indeed
