Review:

CoolWorks is a simple job board that caters to outdoor enthusiasts and seasonal job seekers. While the services are pricey, the platform does include several valuable features that may help businesses expedite their hiring procedures, such as the ability to form upgraded employer profiles and link them to an application monitoring system.

For U.K. employers, CoolWorks offers a targeted recruitment approach that helps streamline the screening process. That said, CoolWorks is more costly than local competitors, such as Leisurejobs and Prospects, and U.K. users only make up 0.85% 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 offer access to a CV database.
  • 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:

There are hardly any reviews of CoolWorks by employers and jobseekers aside from testimonials displayed on the CoolWorks website, which praises the effectiveness of the platform and its ability to deliver on its promises.

CoolWorks vs. Leisurejobs:

CoolWorks and Leisurejobs are both niche job boards that target seasonal workers in the hospitality industry. Unlike CoolWorks, Leisurejobs's pricing is available in pounds sterling, and it includes access to a comprehensive CV database. While it's also more affordable than CoolWorks, Leisurejobs does not feature enhanced company profiles.

CoolWorks vs. Prospects:

Similar to CoolWorks, Prospects is a job board that predominantly caters to job seekers looking for seasonal work. However, unlike CoolWorks, Prospects advertises vacancies to U.K. graduates looking for jobs, which limits the candidate pool. That said, despite its plans being available in U.S. dollars, CoolWorks is the more affordable option.

CoolWorks vs. Indeed:

Indeed has significantly more functionality and is far less costly than CoolWorks. However, CoolWorks has a distinct edge over Indeed in that it caters to a specialized target audience, primarily outdoor enthusiasts and seasonal workers. Indeed, on the other hand, is the clear winner in terms of price and local reach.
