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:

Parameter Required Description Example
auth_token Required Your API token for authentication. Once you register to Wextractor you can extract this key from your account's setting page. -
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

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.
