If prospects and candidates paid your salary...

Ask 100 prospects and you will hear 100 complaints about your ATS. Or any ATS. What we see as a "necessary evil," your prospects see as more evidence that you care far more about your internal processes, in making things easier for you than in attracting great talent.

We are not the least bit impressed with Zero Fee Recruiter.  They promise to deliver you high quality drivers that match your criteria, which we laid out in great detail, and they delivery us a bunch of unqualified drivers or drivers that do not even hold a CDL.  I strongly advise anyone that if you are looking for a recruiting group to help with your needs, stay away from Zero Fee Recruiter.  They are certainly not worth the money they charge you.
