Review:

Kijiji is a classifieds website that hosts a general job board for employers to fill their vacancies throughout Canada. The platform's job board receives millions of searches from job seekers every month looking for jobs in labor, hospitality, and manufacturing, among others.

Kijiji allows employers to post jobs for free, but also offers paid promoted listings and monthly subscription packages for companies wanting to syndicate listings from their database, manage postings from their personalized dashboard, and receive dedicated account support.

Pros:

  • Kijiji gives employers access to a local pool of candidates from a wide range of industries.
  • The platform offers a free job posting service.
  • Employers can upgrade their listing for increased visibility on the site.
  • The site's subscription packages include employer branding, free URL links, dedicated account support, and more.
  • The platform allows employers to upgrade their listing to "urgent" for seven days.
  • Employers can post permanent positions, as well as part-time and seasonal work.
  • The website is available in English and French.

Cons:

  • The subscription packages' pricing is not readily available on the website.
  • Employers cannot post jobs outside Canada.

Reputation:

On Sitejabber, Kijiji received a 1.3-star rating based on more than 310 reviews. The majority of users were disappointed by the platform's poor customer service and "scam" ads, though many of the reviews pertained to the site's classifieds section and not its job board. On Trustpilot, the site scored 3.4 out of 5 stars.

Kijiji received a 1.38-star rating on Reviews.io, with only 13% of users recommending the site.

Kijiji vs. Craigslist:

Kijiji and Craigslist are both classifieds websites that list general vacancies. While Kijiji primarily caters to the Canadian job market, Craigslist has a global reach. Both sites have a free posting option, but Craigslist's pricing starts from C$10.00 for listings in certain regions. However, Craigslist offers resume searches, which Kijiji lacks.

Kijiji vs. Hot Jobs in Canada:

While Kijiji and Hot Jobs in Canada both serve the local job market, the former site is more affordable, offering free and paid posting plans, while Hot Jobs in Canada's pricing starts from C$299.00 for a single listing. However, Hot Jobs in Canada offers job syndication to other sites, affording employers greater visibility than Kijiji.

Kijiji vs. Indeed:

Both general job posting sites, Kijiji and Indeed offer free and paid job posting plans. While Kijiji has a large Canadian audience, Indeed is the more popular platform of the two, reaching millions more job seekers both locally and globally. Indeed also offers candidate management tools, which Kijiji lacks.
