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.

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.

This is a great applicant tracking system, it's easy to use, affordable and flexible. I can draft job descriptions, evaluate candidates, give access to hiring mangers, etc.

Pros

Affordable, Easy to use, simple

Cons

I'd like it to have an on-boarding feature, where I can store and build documents in workable to send offer letter and new hire documents

Advice to Others

If you are looking to implement an applicant tracking system, especially for a small or medium size business, this is the one to use.

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.

For a company considering an ATS with not much budget for one, this is a great solution. You get more than what you pay for. Great for compliance, tracking and improving the candidate experience.

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.

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 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.

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