I've been a member of SparkPeople for several years. Initially I was all involved in the groups and the activity and the rah rah of the site. All good things. It was a very educational and informative year and I lost over 75 pounds. I learned a LOT. I don't use the site often anymore as a social support network. I've continued to lose weight - now over 100 pounds - and am keeping it off because of what I learned there. Now that I can live a healthy eating lifestyle in the 'real' world I no longer need or use the on-line support. They still send me helpful information via the newsletters and emails I subscribed to early on and I'll probably stay a member as a reminder of what I've accomplished, how much I learned, and what I still need to do each day. I would recommend this site to anyone dealing with weight loss issues.
We were enticed into placing an ad for professional staff with the offer of $50 free advertising. Instead we ended up with over $900 in charges and NOT A SINGLE qualified applicant for either of our jobs. I was very specific about the required credentials in the ad and still received 'clicks' from people who met none of the requirements. There should be a way to challenge how their algorithms target recipients for click through ads as I clearly never reached any portion of our target audience. Worse, when the first full month bill of $503.08 arrived I went in and tried to pause/delete the ads. Apparently their system is not as user friendly as they state and we received another $350+ in charges. Needless to say we will not be using Indeed again and would not recommend it to any professional business. Buyer beware - and avoid.

9/22/15 Update - After I posed this review Dorit from Indeed did contact me and verify that my account showed our attempt to pause/delete our ad and that I had not been back on site until the next bill came. She did give us a partial refund and offer us future credit to give them another chance. Haven't determined if we are going to do that or not but although their initial customer services was unresponsive I will say that she was helpful and reasonable to work with. So we did get closure.

Hi Rickie, sorry for the negative experience with indeed. We'd like to help. Can you please email us with your Indeed account email address at socialservice@indeed.com so that we can look into this for you? Thank you.
I've been happy with every purchase, every product, and every interaction with LL Bean. They are the only company I purchase some specific basic items from - like the slacks I wear to work and the solid color three quarter sleeve tops I wear for layering. They are my favorite on-line retailer.
