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.

Workable is a user friendly ATS that does exactly what you need. My company did not have an ATS prior to Workable and now we use the program for all of our hiring needs and we even have all of our managers set up on it for interview purposes. Their customer service is great as well, they are super responsive!

Likes Least

When you post a job it goes to a ton of different job boards, which is great but we all know Indeed tends to take the cake. They let you sponsor jobs further but they only give set amounts. I wish there was an option to sponsor a job further on Indeed for whatever price you wanted.

Recommendations

Websites claim this is more of a basic ATS and although it may be a good program to get your foot in the door, it definitely offers way more than I would of thought!

It is adaptable to just about any internal mail you use. It is simple to use for even a novice. It has good evaluation tools and the ability for hiring managers to write their reviews and ratings of candidates.

Likes Least

Not as functional as I would like. Wish it could do more in the area of syncing with my current email systems and calendars for setting up interviews. Not crazy about it for a large organization but for a small one it will work fine.

Recommendations

Make sure you can use this in conjunction with whatever email system you use whether it is Google or Microsoft and that it can use your calendar to sync schedules etc. Is it adaptable to your email calendar? Can you use it across the company email system.

AMAZINGLY responsive tech support/customer service! Great LinkedIn integration but slightly complicated to perform; customizable workflow/pipeline; end-to-end solution.

Likes Least

Limited number of steps in the customizable pipeline - yet other vendors allow for unlimited number of steps, unsure why this one cannot do the same... ? While the Customer Service Team is responsive, usually they send a "see this link" response, rather than answering the question - they could've just copy/pasted what I had asked for ...

Recommendations

Try it out thoroughly so you know what you are getting into from an Employer perspective, and understand what your candidates will be experiencing on their side too.

I like that it aggregates the job posting to different sites with the click of one button. It allows you to create your own template responses. It is easy and keeps you logged in. We absolutely recommend it.

I wish they had entire HRIS with onboarding system. We don't use all the functionality of it because we pay for a system that does all our HR/Benefits/Payroll, etc. and I haven't seen that capability in Workable.

Recommendations

I recommend doing it! It is a win win. It is always nice to get perspective from people using the software.

Easy to set up and start posting jobs. The interface is easy to understand and you don't need to waste anytime with user guides or training for that matter. Their support team is very accessible and I rarely "can't" get a hold of them. The price is also a reasonably easy sell to decision makers.

Likes Least

It leaves something to be desired. I have used Jazz in the past and Jazz offers way more candidate focused ./ user focused features that Workable just hasn't done. When you do ask the Support staff they usually don't even had the feature ideas on a product roadmap which is frustrating because with a software purchase you hope they are always going to improve it. It's a low cost option and that becomes obvious when you start using the software.

Recommendations

If cost is your biggest priority, it's a great solution. It was the first ATS my company implemented and they were hardly sold on the idea of an ATS to begin with. But if you can stretch your budget, go with Jazz or something like that. It would be worth the cost.

I haven't come across anything that I disliked about workable. It's very user friendly.

Recommendations

Our management team just started using workable the past few weeks. I've found it's better suited to stay organized with the high volume of candidates we interview on a daily bases. I like that I can pull up and print the candidates resume directly from the website rather than having to wait on the candidates resume from HR. I also like how I can view other candidates in other Departments whom interviewed for other positions to see if they would be better suited for my division. It allows any manager to be able to log in and print a copy of the candidates resume. I can also upload other documents such as the results of the interview questions I've asked the candidate and how they answered the questions. This website has eliminated our filing cabinets and allowed us to go paperless. I'm happy to have a program such as workable to really streamline our interview process and stay organized.

Nothing so far. We are loving it! This is the first ATS system we have used so we are just starting to get our feet wet.

I wouldn't change a thing. Although switching to this solution from a manual process requires a great deal of data entry. I'm curious to see if there's any way to automate the process.

I would tell them to try using all the site's features before writing the review. Forms are my favorite function

I like that you can add as many users as need and that they can provide feedback easily via the ATS. It is relatively easy to use. I love the way the careers page looks and that it also can post roles on social media (Facebook).

Likes Least

Once you close out a role you can't update that candidate which can make it difficult for pipelining candidates. They also don't have a tool that pulls resumes easily from the major job boards.

Recommendations

Only for Corporate would not consider for agency. There is not an ability to add clients but you can add multiple companies (added cost).
