CareerPlug Software


 

CareerPlug provides recruiting and HR software solution that includes applicant tracking and paperless onboarding. With the tools to attract and evaluate candidates, hiring managers are able to make their process more consistent to ultimately make better hiring decisions.

CareerPlug begins with candidate experience, automatically distributing job postings to job boards including Indeed, and building a branded careers page. 

Using a custom job builder, companies can ensure applicants are qualified for their opportunities by including custom prescreen questions.  This helps users sort and score applications to quickly identify top candidates.

Users manage this process on the Applicants page, where they can take advantage of other tools, such as unlimited assessments to screen candidates.  

CareerPlug’s paperless onboarding takes the next step, transitioning new hires to productive employees.  The software allows users to build onboarding checklists and convert paper forms to electronic documents with a PDF form builder.

I started using Career Plug as my ATS having used spreadsheets for many years. The product is great at automatically posting to the free sites and creating HTML to post on other niche sites that we are members of. There have been some issues (to expect with any company) with postings and paperwork through Onboarding with Career Plug, but their support team has always been responsive and gotten everything worked out.

Pros

Ease of posting and scheduling interviews and processing backgrounds. Awesome support team.

Cons

I would like the user interface to be a little more customizable to our needs.

Advice to Others

Definitely give Career Plug a try. No crazy contracts, upfront fees or any of the unnecessary bloat that comes with other ATS out on the market.

Career Plug hiring software has been very useful to our agency in several ways. Besides being very cost effective, it has provided us a greater pool of quality applicants. The software has increased the ease of communication with applicants, our organization of the recruiting system and the accuracy of job postings on our own website.

I would first like to say how much CareerPlug has made a difference in the number of applicants we have received since we have begun utilizing them in July 2016. For the price point they offer, it is one of the best values for the money that is out there right now.

Pros

- I love the way the applicants are listed by location and job description.
- Daily Applicant summary notifications are clear and concise.
- Ability to screen applicants on initial application. This saves time interviewing candidates who are not qualified.
- Ability to add multiple users to the account with no additional charge.
- Customer service is very prompt in responding to your issues.

Cons

- Reporting features are not very customize able.
- They only post to 8 free job boards.
- Sometimes screens don't automatically refresh after status updates. Whether this is an internet issue or server issue remains to be seen.

Advice to Others

- Be prepared to put about 10-15 hours total work into getting it built initially.

WOW! Awesome product - love it. So easy to use. We have had no glitches or problems with the program. It does everything they said it did and more! My end users love it too - has improved efficiency in hiring, improved communication with hiring managers and the candidates and let us go paperless! Made our lives in so much easier!

Pros

Ease of use.
Fantastic A+ Service Team who respond so quickly and are so friendly.
System is seamless, intuitive for both the company and the candidate.
Allows the hiring process to be paperless.
Electronic scheduling of candidates is probably my favorite component.
Can use the system from anywhere.
Mobile friendly.
Assessment options are great.
Good email template options to respond to all candidates.

Cons

The only thing that I don't like is that I did not buy the product sooner!

Advice to Others

We have 300 employees and get about 5,000 or more applications over a year period. So easy to track, search, etc.
I referred to a friend with 1800 employees with multiple locations and they love it too.
There are no surprises in the buying process and no hidden fees.

Career Plug is a relatively good recruiting tool. The problem I have with it is that it does not do a great job of finding a name in a search but this is better. For instance, if you look for John Green, it will find every person with John in the name in the system and every person with Green in the first or last name. There are no really good reports.

Pros

Can do many jobs at the same time. Easy to add new jobs, deactivate them and change them.

Cons

Lack of reports and trouble finding a candidate.

Advice to Others

Reasonably priced, easy to add new jobs and change those jobs, good when you have many jobs to source.

They recently had a server issue with out the proper back-ups. The server crashed and we were struggling to use the program for approx 2-3 weeks.

Recommendations

Most of the companies I reviewed before selecting careerplug had similar recruiting platforms. The on-boarding portion of the software is what sold me, as well as E-Sign being built in. This is an expensive option with many other programs.

What I like most about the software is it's functionality and interface. The interface is very user friendly which made training our Management team a lot easier. The service we have received has been great. Any time we have a question or need help we have always been able to reach someone on their service team and in instances where we have to leave a message we always receive a quick response back. This is our first real attempt at using an applicant tracking system prior to that our applications were done on paper. CareerPlug comes with a lot of features and functionality that we have yet to start utilizing. We can't wait!

Likes Least

The thing I like least about the product is that as you move an applicant through the recruit flow and designate them as "hired" in the system they are automatically moved to the "teams" section of the website. This is a minor issue. To me the teams section should only list users with login access.

Recommendations

In choosing an applicant tracking vendor we first made a list of features and functionality we wanted to have. That made siting through demos easier as we knew which questions to ask and could mark off which vendors had or didn't have what we were looking for. Some vendors will give you a login and allow access to their demo site so that you can play around and get a feel for what their system is like. I'd highly recommend taking them up on that offer if available.

The product is very streamlined in the way it is presented to the user. Even if you are not a computer savvy person, you can navigate around inside CareerPlug. It has all the features that a site of this style should have including FAQ's, Comments, Settings, and Accounts. I like that there are also not an abundant amount of links and task bars to use. Very user friendly!

Likes Least

It can freeze up on you from time to time or take a longer time than normal to refresh a page. This might be an operating system error but I was on other web sites during the same time period and did not have that delay. That being said, it was not a substantial amount of time that I had to wait.

Recommendations

Make sure you go to every link and explore the entire site. A lot of software can have a tremendous looking main page and then when you navigate to other pages it can really loose its luster. You also want to make sure there are no links that might take you to another website entirely. Take the time to get to know the site.

This product has been a lifesaver for our department for a recruitment tool as well as a safe location to retain important required documentation for our reps. Our rep, Taylor has been very helpful in building the program to suit our needs as well as quickly responsive to our calls with any issues that have surfaced while onboarding our reps.

The only thing least like is the learning curve which is unavoidable when using a new system, but as I mentioned our rep is very responsive to our issues and questions.

Recommendations

It is an excellent program for recruitment and storage. We have added a lot of our own information to CareerPlug and the support has been so accommodating to our requests.

It allows me to free up about half of my day that would have been spent tracking applicants and hearing cats in terms of interviews, ratings on candidates. Having everyone able to be in the system and have a cohesive voice in hiring is key to our recruitment success.

Likes Least

That I can't send out a mass "position has been filled" email through the system.

Recommendations

Utilize the pre-screen questions and scorecards. Try to get every manager in there actively looking at each of their job posting. It not only engages them but gets them more involved in the process as a whole.

I'm very encouraged by the product and team. Initially CareerPlug didn't offer the ability to utilize my company's proprietary employment application. The software team took the extra steps to make sure that we were able to use the forms and that the forms functioned as we needed them to.

The product doesn't offer the ability to place applicants in different folders for future follow up. However, the software team continues to make new modifications and strides to make the product better. I'm eager to see how they progress.

I received a lot of training and support from my agent. She was quick to respond to any questions I had about using the product--usually within 24 hours. She also spent quite a bit of time walking me through all of the features of CareerPlug.

I like everything about CareerPlug. As a single HR person for a small company, I have been able to be much more professional in my interactions with applicants. The quality of applicants I have received from my postings has also been good. I like the ease of job posting and emailing potential employees.

I also like the assessment portion of the applicant process. It helps me screen applicants from my desk without taking any time to actually talk to the less than excellent applicants.

Navigating between the various functions is not always intuitive.

At my health club, we are very selective in who we hire for our personal training staff. What I really enjoy about using CareerPlug is how easily I can find the right candidates with the qualifications that I'm looking for. Being able to navigate and view candidates from multiple sources makes my job a lot easier.

Personally, CareerPlug is doing everything I need it to. The pre=screening evaluations that they have set up for prospective candidates is another aspect I really find to be quite useful in the hiring process.
