Great product for a great price. You don't need the full package if you are under 100 employees. A Smaller package does everything you need.

Pros

Easy to keep notes on applicants and the email reminders and notifications feature is great.

Cons

Is not able to run with payroll system.

Advice to Others

If you need a tracking system and an applicant information system for future open positions, this is a great product for a reasonable price. The customer service I've received the last 6 months has been immediate with no delay in responding or providing guidance.

I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use of Hiring Thing. Introducing a more hands on recruiting approach to previously un-involved Hiring Managers could not have been smoother due to Hiring Things intuitive, easy to use system. It's pipeline that streamlines the application, pre-vetting, interviews and all the way through to making an offer significantly cuts down time on an already long and often tedious recruitment process. In addition to fabulous functionality across the board, it also offers insight into where your applicants are applying to open roles to help key in on talent pools. Highly recommend!

Pros

-Easy to search candidates
-Easy to group candidates together using tags
-Great action items
-Fantastic offer process
-Fabulous insight on where candidates are applying from
-Great application question options (love the auto-archive if answered XX option)

Cons

NONE that I can think of!

Value for Money

Customer support is SUPURB! As soon as I send them an email, they reply back within the next 10 minutes. And they are available on the phone without the "your call is important to us". Most of the money spent feels well spent because of their customer support.
The software is fairly easy to use. There are certain functionalities that can be accessed through two routes such as messaging candidates and setting appointments. It took me a while to figure those out and discover that one route was better than other. I would have liked it if the status of the applicants had changed right after certain action was taken automatically. But I have to do it manually, not a big issue though, I can see why that might be counter productive as well.

If you are hiring on an ongoing basis with a dedicated person managing the hiring, it is great value for money. For us it is a bit of an overkill. However, we got a lot of applicants for the few positions that we advertised through hiring thing. Mostly it served our purpose of having the screening questions into application form. Would have liked it if all the applicant info could be emailed automatically to the hiring manager as an optional feature, but had to do it manually. On the other hand, because there was a platform, an admin person could easily do the job of emailing.
Overall I am pleased with the product and would recommend it to a first time user of applicant tracking system.
Another great feature: It has never crashed on me!

Hiring Thing is very unique in that their customer service team is phenomenally good and very quick to get back to you. They are very flexible with taking into consideration your suggestions and turning them into real features of their product. Up until recently, they did not have an option to do video interviews from within the platform, but now they have implemented it and it's quite a good functionality. They are a small company competing in a saturated market, but they are doing a great job!

Likes Least

The main thing that we don't like with HiringThing compared to the best product we've seen on the market for Applicant Tracking, is the lack of an interactive pipeline view for the hiring stages.

Recommendations

Give them a chance! There is so much publicity from the "big players" in the market like Bullhorn, iCIMS and CATS, but you'd be really pleasantly surprised by this startup company and their big heart and creativity for the recruiting market.

Make sure to really evaluate how many positions you may need to post at once before purchasing the cheapest package. Limitations on the amount of positions you can post at one time is sometimes difficult.

HiringThing turned a stack of applications and overwhelming amounts of paper into a collaborative, useful online system that our HR staff and hiring managers love. Being able to share candidate information with relevant parties, communicating securely and efficiently, and ranking candidates has sped up our hiring process by 75%.

Likes Least

I can't think of a criticism that would be significant.

Recommendations

This is a great hiring tool. We use a separate online tool for our HRIS, and I prefer to keep the two systems separate since the needs are distinct. HiringThing does exactly what it should do with amazing efficiency.

It's fast, easy to use, and simple. That is the most important thing to me in an ATS at this point.

Search functionality is limited/non-existent. As I grow and my database of candidates grows, that will certainly become more important to me.

Recommendations

It's a great tool to get if you are just starting out as an independent recruiter like me. I'm not sure if it meets the needs of a large corporate setting or any type of large, complex environments requiring customization, etc.

The ease of use is excellent. You can teach yourself this software quickly, and if you have questions, the FAQs and videos usually explain it or you can call or write tech support. It has saved our HR staff a lot of time and headaches to have this product!

Likes Least

The only thing I would like is for the product to be able to recognize and automatically upload a hard-copy resume that has been scanned and then uploaded into the system instead of having to input it manually.

Recommendations

The product is a great value and extremely user-friendly!
