Workable Software


 

Workable is a standalone applicant tracking system that helps users find and hire the right people. The program replaces email and spreadsheets with a simple way of advertising jobs, receiving applications, filtering them, setting up interviews and making great hires.

Workable is a Web-based system with an intuitive design so users do not need a consultant or hours on the phone to get started. They can get up and running within 15 minutes, and nothing needs to be installed. Since the hiring begins by spreading the word about the position, the program provides advanced job listing tools that publish one submission across a host of the most popular job boards from a single screen.

Once applications start rolling in, Workable allows users to keep track of possible hires and important data. With no data entry required, the system automatically compiles applicants' resumes and social media accounts and presents them in complete applicant profiles, including pictures to help users remember applicants in every stage of the hiring process. Email notifications are also sent whenever users receive new applicants, so users can see where each potential hire falls within the pipeline. From there, the process for browsing, screening and interviewing applicants is streamlined within one cohesive program.

Workable is suitable for a variety of industries and a wide range of company sizes. The system is completely cloud-based, Mac compatible and can accommodate a large number of users.

Easy to use but not as robust as other systems

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

- My experience is positive but we are limited in our capabilities. We are looking for an overall recruiting tool that tackles the candidate experience and allows us to maximize on our pool. Workable is good for a basic recruitment tool but may not be the best if you are a growing company with over 100 employees and need something more robust.

Pros

- Good design and easy to use

Cons

- You have to buy jobs slots in bundles instead of being able to post unlimited roles
- If you have a candidate that you want to upload that does not fit a role and you want to put them into a project of others like them, there isn't an option for that
- The reporting is very basic
- There isn't really anything there to survey or measure candidate experience
- Cannot post for different company divisions under the same bundle
- if you have different brands and need to purchase two accounts, cannot link the pool on the back-end to quickly check for duplicates

Unable to stop automatic renewal

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

This is a useful product however there is no way to stop automatic renewal unless you downgrade the account to a basic version straightaway and lose the remaining time you have left. They are basically penalising you for stopping automatic renewal. This is a manipulative technique meant to encourage you to stay on and then banking on you forgetting to renew the day before your licence is due for renewal.

Value for Money

Nice, simple and fresh to use. Nothing particularly fancy about its functionality, it will just save you time putting things on an excel sheet. After two price hikes, the price is now unaffordable.

Pros

Simplicity.

Cons

Very expensive. When it started was very cheap it was a great deal. Then it became very expensive For the functionality, it offers this price is beyond ridiculous. Particularly if you have multiple jobs you will be paying extraordinary amounts of money for a glorified applicant tracking system which you could also do manually on an excel sheet.

Workable is a very intuitive applicant tracking system. Currently using this tool to support talent acquisition for multiple positions.

Pros

Very user-friendly with regards to navigation and user experience.
Integrates with Company's website.
Good for keeping things organized.

Cons

Have encountered a few issues with scheduling interviews when the inaccurate time was sent out.
Integration with BambooHR is okay but it would be nice if the start date could be edited in the process.

Advice to Others

Overall, a solid ATS that makes it easy to communicate externally with candidates and internally with hiring managers.

I have a free Workable account which I use for US recruitment. It's a pretty standard ATS with various social integrations. It does the job for the amount of recruiting I do.

Pros

Easy communication between hiring managers
Pulls candidates' social profiles
Integrates with company website
Allows for a customized workflow

Cons

Lot's of emails- can get lost
Customer support is typically live chat, not phone
Updated version doesn't have an easy way to share the job- still, don't know where the job link can be found within the platform.

Advice to Others

Not a ton of bells & whistles, but does the job! It's easy to use and grabs useful candidate information. The workflow is easy.

For the price, I believe this is the best option out there. It is also nice to be month-to-month instead of stuck in a contract. This is great for those who post jobs on multiple sites and need something to ensure all the information is together in an easy to read format. Workable puts our postings on multiple website with one click. It is easy to move candidates to different stages in the hiring process. Interviews can be coordinated and communicated easily in Workable.

Pros

It's very user friendly. I have been interviewing a lot of candidates recently and this has helped me stay organized.

Cons

I haven't come across anything that I disliked about workable.

We have been using Workable for over 7 months, and it is been overall a good experience. We have had great value in Workable's offerings, and are now getting comfortable with the use of the system.

Pros

-The # Searching feature, in the search bar.
-The ease of archiving old postings
-The short listing, >1st interview, Moving candidates through workable. This is the best feature, very easy on the eyes and easy to use.

Cons

-Visibility on some Job Boards
-Finding people through Workable ATS (Keywords, Phone numbers)

I started with my current company at the beginning of 2016 as a Corporate Recruiter. We never had recruiters before, so there was not ATS. We did a trial with Workable and really like how great it looked and its ease of use. We were able to use it immediately and the support provided was great. It can be customized to the size of openings the company has and the job postings look great. I would recommend this to anyone looking so a simple and easy to use ATS.

Pros

Workable puts our postings on multiple website with one click. It is easy to move candidates to different stages in the hiring process. Interviews can be coordinated and communicated easily in Workable.

Cons

Just wish there was a better way to categorize candidate and candidate look up.

Workable works for us!

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

We were looking for an applicant tracking system with an easy user interface and social profile capability. Workable allows us to easily upload all resumes that are emailed to us and track candidates in a way that works for our team. The step-by-step progress of candidates is easy on the eyes and allows everyone on each hiring team to see exactly where each candidate stands. I really like the evaluation capabilities as well. My only hesitations are with the archiving of jobs and the customization of the job posting template. When someone is hired, it doesn't automatically close the position, move it to archive, and email the remaining candidates. This would be a nice feature.

Advice to Others

For the price, I believe this is the best option out there. It is also nice to be month-to-month instead of stuck in a contract. I'd definitely do the free trial of this product to see if it is the best choice for your company.
