Indeed reviews API documentation

We provide a simple to setup REST API that returns reviews in JSON format. Before integrating the API you should be aware of the following:

  • The Indeed API returns 20 reviews per request.
  • The order in which reviews are returned is by descending date(from newest to oldest).
  • You can get all reviews from a single place by using the offset parameter.

To get reviews from Wextractor you will need to perform GET requests against the https://wextractor.com/api/v1/reviews/indeed endpoint.

Reviews endpoint parameters:

id Required A textual identifier that uniquely identifies a place in indeed. This identifier can be taken from the url of the company in Indeed. For example, if the url for the place in Indeed is https://www.indeed.com/cmp/Google the identifier is Google Google
offset Optional This parameter defines the result offset. It skips the given number of reviews. It's used for pagination. (e.g., 0 (default) is the first page of results, 20 is the 2nd page of results, 40 is the 3rd page of results, etc.). 20
country Optional With this optional parameter you can filter reviews by their country. List of country codes US

They trust you to do the right thing and you can normally choose what and how to work on projects, without anyone looking over your shoulder but offering guidance and a lot of resources if needed. Work hours are whatever I see fit and I have been provided with everything to equip my WFH environment. The offices are amazing and it's the first time I look forward to going there. The benefits and perks are great, you are actually encourage to take leaves, PTO and enjoy extra days off.  Once you have a certain tenure, be prepared to deliver or be left behind. This is a meritocracy and just sitting around doing nothing will get out of the door. The interview process was demanding but recruiters help you get prepared. Be ready to code on a whiteboard and have your data structure knowledge and Big O memories refreshed.",

Frequently asked questions:

  • How do I get all the reviews for a single place?
  • You need to perform multiple requests incrementing the offset until you get a response without any reviews in it.

  • Does the API have rate limits?
  • Yes, since Indeed is pretty strict at blocking requests you will be rate limited if you perform more than one request per second.
