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!
-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)
NONE that I can think of!

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!

It makes hiring people so much easier because of how organized the program is.
Jacki from LatAm Connex

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!
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.
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.
Randy from Farmers Insurance Group (District 88-06)
This product has excellent interface, easy to use and very intuitive. To have all the candidate's information at my fingertips saves me time. I also have not lost a candidate file since I began using Hiring Thing.
I would like to see more of a CRS features so I can continue using the program after the hire.
Call the help desk often at first. They really do want to help you and you can sense their friendliness.
Randy from Farmers Insurance Group (District 88-06)
Everything is in one spot. The automatic download of the application from the application link I use on the job boards.
No Calendar and I would like to be able to enter a candidate's info without having to "apply".
Look around and you will be back. I spent weeks looking for the right program.
Michelle from Pet Alliance of Greater Orando
It's very easy to use. The customer service is excellent and sent immediate responses to any questions I have had.
I have not found anything yet that I like least about this product.
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.
Erin from Portland Rescue Mission
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%.
I can't think of a criticism that would be significant.
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.
Johnny from Simplex

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.
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.
Jennifer from Innovaacom, L.L.C.
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!
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.
The product is a great value and extremely user-friendly!

HiringThing has been very help to us when looking to hire drivers. I am glad that I found this system. We are a taxi company, and the ease of updating our listings - along with the quality of service - means we will continue to use this service.

This is an excellent site to recruit workers for your company. They even follow up with you on the status of your employee search. They are very professional and eager to assist you. I truly recommend this site for your growing business. HiringThing's customer support is excellent. I received so many responses within a week time.
Melissa from Kaizen Approach

We couldn't be more pleased with Hiringthing as our new ATS. We researched many SAAS ATS solutions through a market survey before selecting HiringThing.
The software is intuitive, requiring no training at all for us to use. We have altered our workflow to fit with HiringThing, and its made our process leaner and easier. Actions which would have taken 30 minutes or more are now completed in minutes. No more juggling spreadsheets, figuring out who has spoken to whom, or cutting and pasting from emails. Everything is centralized in the the applicant's notes and messages, and we can set up interviews and calls, and rack them as well.
Help screens are well written, the support center has a good knowledge base, and its easy to enter a ticket for support. Customer support is phenomenal. We get fast responses and fixes. Suggestions for future releases are taken.
I would recommend HiringThing without reservations. We are a small company without a full time recruiting staff - we have our own jobs to do, and now with HiringThing, we can effectively manageg recruiting without taking up too much of our regular work schedule.

This site is by far the best site for connecting employers and applicants. The graphics and page setup are very appealing. The customer support has been outstanding. I love everything about this site and will recommend it to everyone I know. There is no question in my mind, that if you are looking for help hiring or looking for a job, Hiring Thing is the best in its field!!!
Jeannette from Credit Union

I work for a small "not for profit" company so we are unable to afford nor do we have a need for big and fancy ATS's. We started looking for an applicate tracking system because the resumes and applications began to be overwhelming, and I was unable to look back and know who I had spoken to or not. Before HiringThing, we really didn't have a formal system of tracking applicants. We recently began using HiringThing and it has made looking for a new employee much more enjoyable. I like that I have the option not to print all the resumes, and have them stored electronically. It is very easy to post jobs on the Internet and really allows us to get that information out to more people. It was super easy to set up and is also very easy to use. I use it by myself, but there is the option to take it even further and get a hiring manager involved in the process. The one thing that really made the difference for me was the customer service. All I need to do is e-mail my support rep with any issues I may have and he gets back to me really quick ,and answers any of my questions. Now the amount of resumes that we receive has increased and the amount for time used to go through those resumes has decreased.
Brian from TASCET

We are a small start-up company and HiringThing has done a great job of meeting our applicant tracking needs over the past several months. The software has allowed us to transition from taking in applications via email and has helped us better organize our applicant flow. HiringThing integrated nicely with our company website and was very easy to learn.
There are not a ton of extra features, which is fine since we don't have a large number of open positions at one time. HiringThing offers some great customer support and the flexible pricing model makes their service very cost-effective. I would definitely recommend this software, especially for small businesses.
Stephanie from FoodCorps

We are a small, start-up non-profit with a lot of recent new growth. We were looking for a more efficient way to manage the hiring process, but we also wanted the flexibility and affordability of a web based system. HiringThing was the perfect solution.
HiringThing allowed us to direct all potential candidates to one place to apply for our open positions. As the operations coordinator, HiringThing has made my job of ranking applications and responding to candidates a lot easier. I am able to review all applications in one, easy to manage dashboard. I can then respond directly to the applicant, rate the application and move candidates along in the recruitment process all from one dashboard. And because HiringThing is web based, I can review and manage applications from anywhere.
Customer support has been excellent, including quick responses to my questions and helpful tips on how to utilize HiringThing better. If you are looking for a robust, but affordable hiring system, I strongly recommend giving HiringThing a try.
Adam from Balanced Healthcare Receivables

I am truly satisfied with your product and service, and would recommend it to anyone who does not employ a fulltime hiring manager.
We are a medical receivables company, both 1st party and 3rd party, we started with 6 people 5 years ago, and have 10 times that to date, and plan on doubling in size within the next 2 years. I was looking for a better way to recruit quality applicants. I was shopping job boards, when I came across this site. I found that it had already intergraded its tools that I was using outlook for, plus posted to job boards and allowed me to keep one of the ones I was already using. Before this I used outlook, and regular folders.
Our industry has a high turnover rate, so we always seem to be hiring, plus we are growing so I need something that I could use monthly long term, and when I tried them out for a month and used the majority of it’s features I was so impressed I immediately went to my director and told them about it, and we will be using it for all departments for our hiring needs.
Customer support is polite and professional. Every time I’ve asked for help, I get an immediate response that they received my inquiry, and within 24 hours resolution.
The system has gotten us better applicants, with a user friendly interface that we can all access. No more emails from applicants, I can use my emails to focus on my employee, directors and clients. Overall, it saves me time and helps streamline the hiring process
Lucie from Lapovsky consulting

Hiringthing.com is terrific. I am a search consultant and I use it with my search committees. It is so nice to be able to share all the information about candidates seamlessly and without any paper with the whole committee. It is also great to be able to get feed-back on the candidates and share what our assessment is of each candidate. The rating system is very easy to use and it is good to be able to customize the rating scales and the letters that we send to candidates. All of the clients who have been using hiringthing.com have raved about it.
Hiringthing was very easy to implement. I can explain its use to a search committee with one relatively short e-mail. The service provided also is outstanding. Responses to questions are very quick. Requests for modifications are taken seriously and feed-back is heard.
Cypress from Criterion Brock

We were looking for an effective tool to help us manage our recruitment process. HiringThing was easy to implement and has provided an efficient and effective way to manage our application process. This online software tool required no installation time, the user interface is intuitive and easy to use. We were able to get the system up and running very quickly. HiringThing has greatly reduced the amount of time we spend processing applications and would be great for companies that are looking for an easy and affordable software recruitment application.
