Free Version Great for the Price BUT

We are a very small recruiting agency and went with a free version of SmartRecruiters to start. It is an excellent value for the price (free). Allows you to post jobs, candidates can apply online and you can send and receive emails in the system. You can also assign ratings to candidates and type in any notes about the candidate.

Pros

The ability to send and receive emails in the system and keep a record of past emails for referral. The ability to take notes. You can move several candidates to a different stage in the pipeline at once.

Cons

The free version doesn't have email templates (except for Rejection letters).
No customization in the free version.
The paid version is too expensive for what you get compared to other systems, in my opinion.

Advice to Others

A great free product and I've heard good things about their next-level system, it just doesn't meet our needs any longer

Smartrecruiter is an amazing piece of technology written by recruiters for recruiters. It's flow process is intuitive and allows you to design your own recruitment process as well as put in place job and offer approval processes. It's great for managing candidates through a process and to store into future pipelines as necessary.

It allows you to upload and store resumes as well as build different job and offer templates you can share with candidates. It has built in 360 Outlook integration which is great for setting up candidate interviews with hiring managers.

Pros

ease of use
ability to design own recruitment process
build out approval processes (job and offer)
Resume uploads
keyword search
multiple offer and job templates
Very reasonable cost

Cons

Hard to create some customizations
SSO was not doable in our case
Reporting not that robust

I LOVE SmartRecruiters. Never before have I had all my hiring managers and teams truly involved in the recruiting process. No only do our teams use the product they actually like using the product. The real-time collaboration makes decisions quick and seamless. We are also able to tie in all of our assessments, reference checks, and background checks throughout the process. Tired of sending paper offers and having to wait for everyone to scan them? We were too, but SmartRecruiters has an amazing integration with DocuSign. Thank you for finally making a product that works!

Pros

- open apis
- easy UX/UX
- marketplace with over 250 partners
- built-in analytics
- easy job marketing
- great calendar integration (we have gmail)
- great customer success team

Cons

- some ATS elements are missing (follow-up reminders, recruiter love, etc.)
- analytics could be better for recruiter productivity and tracking

Advice to Others

Drop your old TA/Recruiting systems and get SmartRecruiters.

It glitches a lot. There have been so many times that I try to update the status of a candidate, along the hiring process, and I cannot. Sometimes I would get a message saying that the candidate no longer existed or it would revert back to a previous status.

Recommendations

Different system work for different people. Smart Recruiters is mainly user friendly, but has a lot of kinks to work out. I would recommend everyone try the system and see if it works for them.

I like that Smart recruiter is simplified and clean in presentation.

Likes Least

In terms of organizing
1) applicants can see where they are in process
2)Filters not appearing correctly and it will not add correct filters for my cities even when I add “my Active” sometimes I can not see my reqs
3) The candidates know where they are in the process. They also know that if I move them over to another rec. I'm not comfortable with this.
4) Sometimes they don't upload everything from the resume, nor even upload the resume at all.
5) Too much notifications. I'm running out of space for my email account.

Recommendations

This software is efficient for companies that require small scale recruiting.

Easy to use interface. Hiring Managers love it. Excellent at posting jobs to multiple boards and locations with a single click. I love the Hire Loop which gives me visibility into all activities on jobs and candidates in one place. I think SmartRecruiters is a great tool. Customer account management and customer support are top-notch. From the Hiring Manager's perspective, it's perfect.

Likes Least

Difficult setup for 3rd-party recruiters. Difficult getting any kind of data from the tool although I know this is being worked on. Offer Approvals, system emails, and administrative setup. Can only opt-out of emails at a high level, so if on a hiring team, you get emails for all jobs or none.

Recommendations

Think long and hard about your 3rd party recruiters. If you use a number of them and seemingly add more regularly, be prepared to have to wait some time from invitation to being able to assign them jobs.

It's all about your company and culture and fit. This is a great tool for organizations that don't have a ton of process around it and allow their hiring managers to run the show.

Easily pushes job to external job postings sites and lets you track where your hires come from. Also, great mobile platform and great price as well for what you get.

Likes Least

The software is pretty but unfortunately won't work for a third party staffing firm/recruiter since you can't send resumes to other people through the system.

Recommendations

If you're a corporate recruiter who needs easy access to job posting platforms all on one site, it is great. But, if you need to send resumes to people outside the system (like clients), then it won't work unfortunately.

The SmartRecruiters platform is seamless. I love that I can create a job posting and post it to a host of job boards, then pay for it in one simple step. SmartRecruiters will also post the job on a host of free sites. Our hiring Managers can access the system easily with minimal training. Candidates can apply quickly via their mobile devices and it is simple which attracts more candidates. If I ever have a question, their priority support responds immediately and resolves any issues. Bottom line is SmartRecruiters saves me time and money and makes my job easier.

Nothing. The team at SR listen to my needs as a customer and work to give a solution for all customers. The system has only been even more perfected over time.

Recommendations

I recommend every Recruiter or HR person seeking a way to attract candidates, give SmartRecruiters a try. You will attract candidates and have everything organized. Communicating with those candidates and tracking them is streamlined, allowing you to move onto other tasks at hand. Plus the bottom line to every organization is saving money, and using the SmartRecruiters system will do that for you.

It's a free tool and is simplified. The best part is the social media that you are able to post jobs to in one click. Older ATSs do not have that option.

I've been using since 2009 and they have made several changes since. The flow is starting to look cluttered.

Make sure it fits your business needs. If you are a recruiting firm, you would be looking for more add-ons. However, with the paid service, you are able to customize all of it.

Leaving. The struggle was we purchased a system intended for internal recruiters of an organization. We were external recruiting group, so the system did not work.

Likes Least

We were oversold - the software may work for internal Recruiters, but it doesn't work for Staffing or external recruiters. We could not set up a client without there system "inviting" the client to participate. We were unable to send resumes through the system. Instead we were instructed to send it via email. How would we track our resume submission? There's no resume parsing from an email. It's not so Smart

Recommendations

If your an external Recruiter or Staffing Firm, this software won't work for you.

I'm very disappointed in Smartrecruiters.com. We have been using the system for 5 months now with our 76 person team. We have spent countless hours uploading information for our team and over 1,000 candidate's information is gone. We woke up this morning to having our entire team being on the standard program and over 300 job orders/1,000 candidates were deleted without any notice at all.

Recommendations

Contact the company that you are working for before deleting countless hours of work.

I've used many talent management and recruitment apps before, but SmartRecruiters is by far the easiest to use, most comprehensive, and overall most advanced platform out there for finding and recruiting the best candidates.

It's easy to post jobs across a number of sites, manage in-bound talent, work together as a team to screen candidates, and ensure the people applying for jobs have a smooth and awesome experience.

For our company, SmartRecruiters has been a godsend.
