Jobscience Recruiting and Staffing Software


 

Jobscience is a Web-based applicant tracking and applicant sourcing tool. From within the system, users can create job requisitions and automatically post them to their corporate careers page, as well as their corporate social profiles, such as LinkedIn and Facebook. Recruiters can also proactively search for candidates using the system’s sourcing function, pulling in lists of candidates from their own social networks.

Using Jobscience’s Resume Power tool, users can upload entire folders of applicant resumes into the system, which then creates individual candidate profiles for each candidate. These profiles are stored in Jobscience, and recruiters can search past candidate profiles for a potential match to current job openings. Jobscience’s match feature also compares these candidate profiles to current listings to determine if a candidate has the skills and experience required for the job.

Once a group of candidates is identified, recruiters can manage applicants within the system by tracking correspondence, scheduling interviews and forwarding candidates onto hiring managers for further review.

My biggest complaint with JS is that I just find it is not very intuitive for the user. Many times I call support I feel like they too have to take a minute to think about where something is housed.

Pros

We mostly use the forms to capture candidates while on the road. It searches well and allows us to easily make notes and changes to a candidate profile.

Cons

Doesn't seem to be build for the Education industry.

Advice to Others

Best to use as intended - we use a different ATS so they don't talk to each other.

I work for an organization that hires approx. 2,000 new employees per year for a variety of types of positions. As a person that would be considered technology savvy I did not find that this platform was something that I could figure out on my own. Even seasoned members of my team opted to do a training with the customer support team to see if they could more easily use this software. While the software is quite cumbersome and does not generate the reports that we would need to share with hiring managers easily the customer support is pretty good. Our organization has over 200 hiring manager but, as an non-profit organization are unable to afford access to anyone outside of our recruitment team with only one administrator license. If you are looking for a CRM that connects with Searchsoft to give you a better idea about full cycle recruitment this is definitely not the tool. I would not recommend this product for organizations that may have recruiters at events simultaneously. I do not believe that the software is bad, however, it is not a good fit for our organizational needs but, the customer service makes being stuck in a contract tolerable.

Unfortunately we are switching from JobScience and do not think that it's a good product. There are some key issues with the search, including the inability to see notes without several clicks, extremely poor (broken) speed levels (sometimes it takes up to a min for a candidate record to load!), reporting has been broken for weeks, it's truly impossible to use effectively and really gives a lot of downtime for our business. Bullhorn seems like the best product out there and we are moving to them.

Pros

Some of the reps are very knowledgable, i really like the reporting (though complex),

Cons

Terrible UI and user experience, the service is hit or miss (some smart reps) but it's not on the phone (all online and not always available). So many issues that simply cannot be fixed, time and money spent unnecessarily and productivity is down.

Advice to Others

Get a very strong tech guy and deal with poor search, otherwise just go elsewhere.

Terrible job of supporting a typical sales staff with what you'd expect out of a software product. Salesforce did not allow any of the good functionality to go over to Jobscience.

Recommendations

Train you Account Managers to better describe what Customers really will get. I was told we were basically getting what we saw on the Salesforce platform. That never happened. I spoke to my Account Manager and his Director of Sales and was promised updates to better support our needs. It never happened. Follow-up from Account Managers is non-existent. However, the support staff for regular questions is pretty good. I'm very satisfied with that.

Software is very customizable, is user friendly, and is excellent with workflow and notifications. It is a very powerful software and can do pretty much anything you need it to do. It is built on the Salesforce platform so if you are also familiar with Salesforce it will be easier to learn.

Likes Least

At times the customer service can be spotty, depending on the representative you get. The online chat is the best method, but it depends on who you get. Sometimes the software itself has limitations, like any software. You have to have the resources to maintain the software and have technologically savvy people maintaining and managing it. It is not an out of the box type software.

Recommendations

Like anytime you are evaluating software, do your homework to figure out if this works for you.

There are some formatting issues or layout issues they can work to improve. For example tracking the recruiter that submitted candidates to a particular req would be nice. Minor issue but would be a nice addition.

Recommendations

This product is far superior to any of the other products I demo'ed. I think there was one other product I liked but it was $50k per year and only had 5 licenses minimum. If you are consider Bullhorn, Jobscience is a no-brainer. I don't know how that company stays in business.

The tool for adding resumes makes processing new applicants a breeze! Customer service is fast and friendly. I never have problems with uploading attachments. It's a great tool! It syncs with Docusign to help with employee on boarding and signing contracts and agreements.

I could use more notes fields in account records and HR files.

Recommendations

If you are a staffing firm, Jobscience is a must! It's a great way to sync our administration and recruiting operations. Information is easy to add, edit and share. If you need to get all your information in one place, this is the best tool for the industry. We're practically paperless now that we use Jobscience.

The ability to search against skills could be a little more straightforward – I’m looking forward to seeing how scheduled upgrades will improve on this.

It is a highly configurable system that has all the benefits of Force.com, and the customer support has been excellent.

I love the fact that everything is completely customizable. If you have a particular workflow that you'd like to use, it is possible. Also, with the reporting function, you can monitor all activities in real time.

Likes Least

Normally reporting KPI, such as the individual steps toward accomplishing a goal (candidate screening steps), or things like the number of referenced candidates collected in a month takes time away from actually doing the job. The result: people don’t report these steps and data is incomplete. With Jobscience, we customized our workflows in ways that speed up the job and automatically record KPIs. For example, when we press the button to record a completed interview or register a new referenced candidate (both tracked and reportable KPIs), automatically an email template will pop up on the screen to produce interview feedback, or thank the person who referred the candidate. In other words, users will always record these reportable steps because by recording them, Jobscience automates and speeds up the next steps in ways that makes the job easier, faster, and more reliable.

Recommendations

If you are familiar with the Salesforce.com, it is a no-brainer.
