My organization is an RPO company in which we engage multiple clients. In most of these engagements, we bring an ATS solution. We use PC Recruiter as our primary system. We have worked with the team from PC Recruiter for almost a year now and have had great success with their ATS. Overall we are very satisfied with the functionality and features of the system.

Pros

The greatest "Pro" that I can point to is the team at PC Recruiter. They have been extremely responsive to our needs and have been there every step of the way as we configure and deliver their system. They have also been very willing to receive feedback and develop upgrades that have been "game changers" for the way we work. The Customer Service team is fantastic. Very knowledgeable and timely in their responses.

Cons

Some of the system terminology and field names are confusing. The system is not overly intuitive. There is a bit of a learning curve if you want to leverage all of the bells and whistles that PCR has, but the Customer Service team is very helpful in helping you in your education.

The system seems to be able to do many things, but putting everything just does not work.
It's like "Yeh, let's put everything that we can come up with, so it's very helpful when you need it!" well, in fact, it just makes everything messed up and too complicated.

Pros

Linked-In capture

Cons

Too many features

Advice to Others

Simplify it. I think that is the IT trend of 2017. (or even well earlier)
The user interface, easy to understand and grasp at once is the key for all the technology - when standing that point of view, PCR is an obsolete system to me.

My experience with PC Recruiter has been positive. When I was looking at ATS', I had a list of must have features. PC Recruiter was one of the few, that could deliver and at a better price than most.

Pros

I like that we can produce templates for our interviews, with the questions we want to ask. The recruiter can pull up the template, ask the questions, not the answers, makes notes and save the document to the candidate's profile.

Cons

Mobile app allows the user to view contact, company, or position details, but adding details like conversations, notes or schedules is not possible. It would be great to be able to have full usability on the app.

As a user of their recruiting software, the transition to their ATS was simple. There are a lot of features so for new users it can seem overwhelming. However, asking a lot of questions on the front end and setting up the system to mirror your recruit flow and taking advantage of the automated systems will greatly enhance your experience. Great technical support and quick response at all levels.

Pros

Lots of features, as a user the dashboard information is incredibly helpful, the system layout can be customized to accommodate your personal workflow.

Cons

It's a complex system so for new users it will seem a little overwhelming. Manager portal is very weak from a UI perspective.

Advice to Others

If you're looking for a system that will help you not only manage applicants but also act as a database for candidates for future use this is a great system. Be sure you have a defined applicant work flow process and ask questions on how the system can accommodate your needs.

My experience with PCR is not the best. It takes a lot of time to upload all the information about each and every candidate to this system. Everything has to be put manually, if the layout of the resume is not standard the system does not recognize the right information and then all that wrong info has to be changed manually again.
When I look for some candidate who I know for sure is in the system PCR tells me sometimes that this person is not found.
Also what is not convenient is that it doesn't collect resumes from the job boards. The layout is a bit complicated, you have to open every window separately, so when you open the candidate's page you can't see the whole info right away, you have to open notes and then if he had an interview you have to go to those notes to find out the feedback. This system does not save your time, but takes a lot of time to use, for no reason.

Pros

The only think I like about PCR is that it can capture profile from LinkedIn.

Cons

Everything has to be put manually, if the layout of the resume is not standard the system does not recognize the right information and then all that wrong info has to be changed manually again.

There are several features of the program, however, there are several steps to do an action that should take one or two clicks to accomplish. The viewing and setup aren't user-friendly and could use some work. They make it difficult to edit things such as lists or "rollups" you create and the search function isn't ideal. I would like to have more flexibility when searching for candidates within the system. It would also be nice to have an easier way of reporting and matching candidates to open positions as well as seeing the activity in that position. Definitely, more account manager/sales driven.

Pros

The parsing or "capture" capability from LinkedIn is a nice feature as it will use the picture and put it in the system as well.

Cons

It is more company focus rather than candidate overall. I would like to have something that was more of candidates with more detailed profiles and easy to navigate searches.

I completed a demo with a sales representative. The functionality was impressive. It was fully comprehensive with nicely color coded activities. It was mobile, , web / cloud based which is nice. Integrated with job board companies was also very easy to use. As a start up staffing agency it was more than what we wanted or needed. It was a little out of my personal budget but I would absolutely recommend this software.

Pros

Mobile, functionality, thorough.

Cons

Training, cost

Advice to Others

You should consider this software if you have healthy start up funds.

The initial conversations/demos that we went through worked very well and the functionality that was shown was extremely appealing. PCR worked well for about the first month and a half and then issue after issue kept coming up...first the LinkedIn integration tool wasn't working on one employees computer which then slowly made it to the rest of the company. Then, the Outlook stand-alone browser (which you have to use in order to have PCR log emails) didn't work. Over the course of the next two months, neither of these tools were ever resolved and after bringing up the issues over and over again (that kept getting ignored since it was clear they didn't have a solution) we cut ties since they weren't even willing to offer us any sort of refund or discount and seeing that those were the two items that we were the most excited to use, the product held no value.

Pros

Unfortunately, there aren't too many things that come to mind.

Cons

The lack of solutions was the biggest, any time an issue arose, there were always "very helpful" people to let us know that they were on it right away (but then tried to sell us on some new functionality). The price they charge for a tool that doesn't work was very disappointing.

Advice to Others

Have a backup plan for them to refund you if certain tools aren't working. They're not in any rush to fix existing issues since they're more concerned about pushing out new functionality so be cautious.

It is an applicant tracking system that I started using regularly (after intensive training) in June 2016. The software is pretty user friendly, once everything is set up. It took them a while to start the training (not sure if it was circumstantial or if this is regular practice). Then, it took a little while to get everything set up for the connections between the PCR and the web and email extensions. Once all is set up, it’s relatively easy to utilize, however gets a little cumbersome when you need to make changes or add fields, etc and training is a must.

Pros

Great features! Has everything you need in a staffing agency ATS system

Cons

Cumbersome and time consuming to set up and get ready (between working with the software company training and set up team and own team ...it took about a month and a half, it also takes time to make changes or add fields

Advice to Others

There is setup cost that I think are unnecessary even though it is less than other companies.

I found the product to not be very user friendly. I can recruit faster from out Outlook email - I simply type in a few key words and boom, I get many applications at my finger tips. I'd like a software to have an option to enter an applicant and track them all the way through to termination/layoff, with readily available tags showing his reasons for leaving, eligible to be rehired, etc. PCR just didn't have that that I could find. There were multiple click you had to go through to get to the tracking part. Egh, we don't use that any more.

PC Recruiter is a pretty good software to use but I find myself getting frustrated with their resume inhaler function. The way I use this software is more of a repository for resumes. I don't use it for client management at all. I wish it was a little easier to use but I'm not unhappy with it.

Advice to Others

I've tried a variety of these types of products. Go with the cheapest one. Nowadays everything is pretty good and these companies try and rope you into buying packages that sound great but that you'll never realistically use...

Our recruiting firm reviewed 4 software systems and this was our 2nd favorite. Some great features, including backend (payroll) functions, but ultimately went with another system.

Pros

Backend (payroll) functions--a great timesaver! Customizable dashboards, reports & web links. Post to FB & LinkedIn.

Cons

High $$ start-up fee; we would have to scan all our current documents (that we don't have electronically) to import into system. Resume "inhaler" then parses info into one of 3 subfolders. Too many steps.

Advice to Others

A good software system, but we ultimately went with another one that fit our needs better.

Salespeople provide support during the set up. Hard to get help since they are focused on selling, not supporting.

Recommendations

When you aren't getting responses from your representative, call the main number. Also, be sure you know the steps in your process and look at how the system will work with your process at each step. We found we needed some customization for candidate registration.

All the wishes and ideas I had for Bullhorn, were in PCR. Bullhorn may have them now, yet the ability to have full reporting features (without extra costs), automated emails, roll up lists, scheduling events, rating systems, Outlook integration (without the extra costs) was amazing! Plus, the were excellent on contractual obligations, and very flexible.

Likes Least

Right now, as all tracking systems, it does feel like a challenge to get use to a brand new system and logic. Yet this is for most systems. It would be nice if their 1 user package was just a bit less expensive, though they did work with me on start up costs.

Recommendations

Make sure the full package is what you get. PCR will give you the cart AND the horse. Other ATS's tend to give you a base package (that doesn't fit most ATS needs) and then try to sell the Cadillac package after you lock in, which you really do need.
