TalentBin Software


 

TalentBin by Monster is a best-of-breed applicant sourcing and applicant tracking software that allows each company to create its own private TalentBin populated by employees' social contacts.

When a company signs up, recruiters send all employees a unique link to their TalentBin. Employees then connect their social profiles to the company’s TalentBin, which pulls all their contacts’ employment information and aggregates it into one database. Recruiters can search this database using the product’s guided search feature, narrowing down candidates by particular skills and locations.

TalentBin also helps recruiters organize the hiring process, allowing them to create pipelines for specific job requisitions and give hiring managers access to view candidate resumes. Additionally, recruiters can view all communication history with candidates, as well any notes they might have taken on each candidate’s individual profile.

Great support team. They can help you find resumes if needed and they do monitor your usage to practically reach out with support interventions.

Likes Least

Data quality is off on some social feed based skills. most of the the time, highly rated skills on the site profiles are not necessarily true when I check the full social profile on LinkedIn.

Recommendations

They need to look at dice social search. I think that product provides a better data quality and phone numbers for candidates in most cases.

Layout is decent and concept is good.Follow up is nice when you first use it. Though having one person that trains you on it, and one person that supports the day to day is a little odd.

Constant follow up from Account Managers for TalentBin, they are there to "help" but really have no idea about the market or the technology that we are trying to recruit for. I also heavily dislike the email feature in the tool as its very time consuming and not very user friendly. Just a lot of steps in general to get to a candidate.

Recommendations

Give it a least two weeks to get used to it. But you will find you have to put a lot of time into getting your searches started and reaching out to candidates. Quite a few things that are still not in TBs "wheelhouse"

I like the ability to search people from open web. We use it for search for our IT Roles and it helps sometimes. I like that I have real e-mails.

Likes Least

not reliable search, it says in header that he is a "developer" but then i open linkedin and he is a "painter"

Recommendations

Be as much specific as you can in your search. Check their profiles before writing to them

Additional place to find candidate other than LinkedIn

Likes Least

Floods my email with updates on how many searches I preform and tasks that I need to complete. I think the automated outreach emails are a good, but think you lose a personal touch with the candidates. I had a candidate who actually called me to tell me that he responded to my message, but he is still receiving messages to see if he was interested and asked to be removed from my list. I have had candidate responded after receiving multiple message only to say that they are not interested.

Recommendations

Would be easier if you could some how integrate it with LinkedIn so you can have all of your candidates in one place.

Pros

I found it to be somewhat easy to complete a resume search as part of the package my company selected.

Cons

The price is far too expensive and we were unable to receive quality candidates when performing resume searches. In fact, we did not receive a single applicant from a resume search that was interested in pursuing a job change. It does not appear as though resumes are kept updated to those individuals actively seeking employment.

We utilize Monster TMS every day to post jobs, prescreen resumes and track selection outcomes. The software is not easy to use and if you need some support it is always a struggle. I provide 1 star in Easy to use and 1 in Customer support . 2 stars for features and functionality, I would like to see some more relevant improvements (like the possibility to send massive email (more than 100+) with just a click. We also found the job posting interface very confusing and complicated. Overall we really wish they'll be able to become much more customer oriented as the product itself has good potential.

Monster TMS is a necessity for recruiters. I utilize it every day to search for candidates, post jobs, and review resumes. Monster has really gotten their brand out there and thus still remains relevant in the face of much competition. The site is easy to use and provides most of the functionality one could ask for. I provide 3 stars in Value for Money only because I feel Monster is very expensive and there are many lower cost options on the market. I also give 3 stars for features and functionality because I would like to see a few improvements. The job posting interface is very confusing and could really be simplified. I would like to also see some improvements in the "refresh" function. Monster logs you out of the site if you are inactive for too long but does provide a warning first asking if you would like to "refresh." This function does not always work and often I accept the refresh function only to notice after I fill in additional fields for either a search or a job posting, that I have been logged out and my changes were not accepted. Overall, the TMS is a great product and with a few improvements, could be the perfect tool for recruiters!
