We're a new BH customer and I have to say, the demo showed this software in a totally different light. We like the applicant tracking, the recruiting tools and the software itself is easy to see. The problem is that several things that were automated in our old software are now manual processes in BH. Applicants can't complete an application and have fields populate from the application. All the fields, other the basics (name, address, phone number, email address) are all fields our recruiter has to manually put in. If the fields aren't put in, you really can't manage your applicant pool efficiently or search properly in your database. Then Back Office or On-Boarding - Don't buy it! It appears like it's a convenient process but front and back office don't communicate correctly and there's a lot of duplicate efforts, yet again entering tons of items manually. If you're prepared to spend all day doing data entry and working solely on this program, then go for it. In the meantime, look for a full-service solution instead because I bet you it would be less expensive anyways.

Pros

The customer service and promptness from everyone you deal with are hands down, AMAZING. They respond fast, they are friendly, they try to help. The employees at Bullhorn are what make the experience of the issues more bearable.

Cons

Lots of manual entry, several aspects don't connect correctly to one another. You start at one reasonable price, then keep having to do add on after add on to get the items that are bundled into other softwares as one.

Advice to Others

Shop around or only use BH for their front office, that's it.

As a 30-year veteran owner in Staffing, I would say that BullHorn has the best ATS approach. This is my 4th and final software.

Pros

To individualize the commission for placements is the only reward that makes sense. Ease of use and intuitive nature of the software is key.

Cons

Add another commission layer to the contract placement side of the software. Create alerts for expired credentials.

Advice to Others

Do not over customize the software. Allow it to work as it is intended. Follow the implementation specialist recommendations, scrub your database.

I had never heard of Bullhorn before, and having used other ATS systems, can't believe how intuitive this software is. It's completely understandable and easy to use, but I love the way it tracks the candidates and the jobs we place them at.

Thank you for making a robust software to make recruiting easier!

Pros

Functionality, easy to work with.

Cons

Tough to learn reports and get out of it what I'm looking for.

Advice to Others

Better than any other software on the market for recruiting.

This is really a great product designed to maximize the efficiency and output of recruiting and staffing agencies. This Software is highly configurable with a proper Dashboard & layout. It provides perfect results with documentation and reliable information. It also provides training videos as a System Admin I am working in Staffing and Recruitment company and I got a lot of help from training videos but still need more training videos to resolve the technical problems.

Pros

It is easy to use and have a friendly GUI. Customer Support is really appreciable and awesome.

Cons

Need to provide more Technical Training Videos in details. Mass mailing should be worked properly, sometimes it works great and sometimes it gives an error.

Advice to Others

About the Software is really a great product with 24/7 Customer Supports.

I have been in the staffing industry for almost 10 years and have used several different CRM and ATS programs. Bullhorn is by far the most user-friendly and efficient tool I have ever used. The support team is very easy to reach and they are always able to answer any questions or take care of any issues right away. There are also many video tutorials and a resource center available that you can access to learn about specific features and functions. Bullhorn is the best and it is awesome that it can be accessed from any computer at any time via the web.

I work on the administrative side of things for my company so I work a lot in the back office with onboarding paperwork. I appreciate all of the features in Bullhorn and I think that it is a rather simple system to learn. I do wish that there were more opportunities for the Bullhorn team to engage with me directly and figure out ways to customize the system to my needs and our temporary consultant's needs.

Pros

How interconnected everything is. The customer service team is very responsive.

Cons

I feel like there are quite a few feature requests that have been submitted on my behalf that were never followed up on.

I have worked with Bullhorn for about 1.5 years now with my recruiting firm. Our firm is small and doesn't have many resources to draw upon for tracking candidates, clients, and reporting. Bullhorn is a one-stop-shop. Every person in my company uses BH from end to end - resulting in smoother processes, consistent documentation, and reliable information.

Pros

Robust features
Amazing customer service. Always real live people, with real solutions!
Reporting tools at no extra charge

Cons

Bullhorn offers so many features and options, it can become overly complicated to do simple tasks. This resulted in a lower score for "ease of use" from me.
The training videos are very basic and hard to sift through to find the right information for my needs.

Advice to Others

Great product and great service. Don't be leery of calling to get clarification on some processes.

Bull Horn Recruiting software offers a great solution for small to midsize companies. I really like the customized recruitment workflow. Recruitment can get very tough once you hit the 1,000 candidates pool mark but this system definitely makes the filtering of resumes more robust.

Pros

Cloud Base so your data is protected. Accepts all formats of resumes so nothing gets lost.

Cons

Not ideal for a larger scale company.

Advice to Others

I would advise others to test out the DEMO and see if this works for your industry.

Customer service and ease of use are outstanding what I can not find through the resource center you make it possible for me to understand through the customer support. I love the people. I love the product. If there is a feature not currently available you take it to the developers and low and behold you make it possible. Wow. Awesome product, awesome people.
My number one complaint now is that I paid for my service ahead. Great for you all at Bullhorn you have my money. But my partner left the business and I needed to drop from 2 seats to 1 because I prepaid my account I was screwed out of money. If I was month to month I could have terminated the 1 seat immediately but because I paid ahead. OUCH! It cost me and you all WON big time. Not a fair way to treat a small struggling business. Thanks a lot guys! So, Your financial side is unfair..

That's the reason you guys get three stars for Value! Otherwise, it would be five stars like all the rest.

Pros

AWESOME PEOPLE, AWESOME PRODUCT.

Cons

FINANCIAL - Financial is the side you really need to focus in on.
PRODUCT/SERVICE IMPLEMENTATION - Implementation of new/additional services don't work well which is sad because I truly love the people and love the product. Care for current services is 100% perfect but implementation gets lost in the mix but the money is sure collected for services not rendered.

Advice to Others

Don't pay ahead. Pay moth to month.

It does the job and it does it in a reliable easy to use way. The issue is that most of the advanced features come with a cost. So while the base edition is cost efficient with no minimum user subscription, if you wanted unlimited storage it's extra, customization, mass deleting, etc. all extra costs. I'm not disappointed with my decision to use this CRM. At all. I just think that the direction that I'm going to take my company into next year we will not need something like this and a shared excel drive with LinkedIn should suffice.

Pros

Extremely easy to use. Web-based is awesome, though takes time getting used to. Custom support 24/7 is awesome too. It's very reliable and I've never seen the CRM's servers down.

Cons

Mail merging is annoying. Up to 500 p/blast and if you email over 9 people (or 10?) you have an 'remove from mailing list' option which must go on your email. I can't stand that, so I now mail merge using excel via outlook.

I am new into Bullhorn and so far it's a pretty smooth learning experience. I still need to explore the site more to find out more things I like and don't like but so far in my experience, I've written my pros and cons feedback below.

Pros

1. Customer service is amazing, always. 2. It's pretty easy to navigate through the site. 3. Organized Menu.

Cons

I've noticed there are multiple ways to do certain things and because of that, sometimes data doesn't always show up on reports correctly or at all.
