Review:

CoolWorks is an adventure job board that advertises permanent and/or seasonal jobs from resorts, camps, parks, and more. Despite listing job posting packages in U.S. dollars, CoolWorks' plans are still more affordable than local competitors, Part-time.ca and Summerjobs.ca.

For Canadian employers, CoolWorks is a practical choice if they're looking to target a niche audience. However, CoolWorks is yet to gain a strong foothold in Canada. Currently, Canadian users only account for under 1% of CoolWorks' monthly views.

Pros:

  • The ad package credits expire one year from the purchase date.
  • The enhanced employer profiles allow employers to showcase their business.
  • CoolWorks offers an applicant tracking system called The Staffing Center to help employers streamline recruitment.
  • There are multiple plans on offer, including standard and featured posts for those looking to fill jobs quickly.
  • While the site is known for advertising seasonal work, employers can also advertise full-time positions.
  • CoolWorks offers a 10% discount on highlighted jobs and "Help Wanted Now" ads for 501(c)(3) charitable non-profits.
  • The platform is more affordable than local competitors.
  • CoolWorks receives an average of over 250,000 views per month.

Cons:

  • All plans are offered in U.S. dollars.
  • Employer accounts are approved on a location-by-location basis.
  • There are no free features or posting packages available.
  • CoolWorks does not provide access to a resume database.
  • There is no language-translation tool on the website, which may impact French-speaking employers and job seekers.
  • Corporate or parent employer accounts for multi-location properties will not be approved.
  • Employers must send an application and be approved before they can start posting job ads.
  • CoolWorks is predominantly used as a U.S.-based job board despite offering international exposure.

Reputation:

We were unable to find any online reviews of CoolWorks. The site does have testimonials, which praise the efficacy of the platform and the company's ability to deliver on its promises.

CoolWorks vs. Summerjobs.ca:

CoolWorks and Summerjobs.ca are both niche job boards targeting seasonal workers and outdoor enthusiasts. However, while Summerjobs.ca is a Canadian job board with better reach, it is the more costly option between the two competitors. Unlike Summerjobs.ca, CoolWorks offers enhanced employer profiles and an applicant tracking system.

CoolWorks vs. Part-time.ca:

Part-time.ca is a Canadian job board that caters to employers advertising general part-time work, while CoolWorks advertises part-time work for those in outdoor industries. In comparison, CoolWorks is the affordable choice, despite only offering packages in U.S. dollars. However, Part-time.ca offers the best local exposure and French translation.

CoolWorks vs. Indeed:

Indeed is a globally recognized job board that offers far more features than CoolWorks and is low-cost. The primary advantage of CoolWorks over Indeed is that it attracts a very specific target audience, namely outdoor enthusiasts and people looking for seasonal work. However, in terms of price and potential reach, Indeed is the clear winner.
