TalentBin by Monster is an online applicant sourcing and applicant tracking software that allows companies to create talent search platform and search passive candidates.
When a company signs up, recruiters send all employees a unique link to their TalentBin. Employees then connect their social profiles to the company’s TalentBin, which pulls all their contacts’ employment information and aggregates it into one database. Recruiters can search this database using the product’s guided search feature, narrowing down candidates by particular skills and locations.
TalentBin also helps recruiters organize the hiring process, allowing them to create pipelines for specific job requisitions and give hiring managers access to view candidate resumes. Additionally, recruiters can view all communication history with candidates, as well any notes they might have taken on each candidate’s individual profile.
Users are billed on per user per month basis and the support is offered via phone and email along with online knowledge repository.

Great support team. They can help you find resumes if needed and they do monitor your usage to practically reach out with support interventions.
Data quality is off on some social feed based skills. most of the the time, highly rated skills on the site profiles are not necessarily true when I check the full social profile on LinkedIn.
They need to look at dice social search. I think that product provides a better data quality and phone numbers for candidates in most cases.

Layout is decent and concept is good.Follow up is nice when you first use it. Though having one person that trains you on it, and one person that supports the day to day is a little odd.
Constant follow up from Account Managers for TalentBin, they are there to "help" but really have no idea about the market or the technology that we are trying to recruit for. I also heavily dislike the email feature in the tool as its very time consuming and not very user friendly. Just a lot of steps in general to get to a candidate.
Give it a least two weeks to get used to it. But you will find you have to put a lot of time into getting your searches started and reaching out to candidates. Quite a few things that are still not in TBs "wheelhouse"

I think this product is innovative, different and new
Database needs improvements, since there are a lot of random people. No contact information
I think you should source people better, find contact information
Zlata from enableIT
I like the ability to search people from open web. We use it for search for our IT Roles and it helps sometimes. I like that I have real e-mails.
not reliable search, it says in header that he is a "developer" but then i open linkedin and he is a "painter"
Be as much specific as you can in your search. Check their profiles before writing to them

Additional place to find candidate other than LinkedIn
Floods my email with updates on how many searches I preform and tasks that I need to complete. I think the automated outreach emails are a good, but think you lose a personal touch with the candidates. I had a candidate who actually called me to tell me that he responded to my message, but he is still receiving messages to see if he was interested and asked to be removed from my list. I have had candidate responded after receiving multiple message only to say that they are not interested.
Would be easier if you could some how integrate it with LinkedIn so you can have all of your candidates in one place.

Classic search option is most convenient to use. Also the new feature is been added where we can filter the search as per visa category.
Unable to notify when multiple users are logged In on the same user ID.

monster is a good portal and easy to search candidates by Boolean search and we can select the candidate visa category and select what kind of experience needed
easy to use but some of the profiles getting error and it difficult to login again

Seems focused on essentials of communicating career interests and experience
None to note - Monster seems straightforward and reasonably easy to use
Not very happy to use though I might benefit fro their tips
Easy to use, send you daily notifications, and some tips.
It is neither stick to the type of the job you are looking for, nor ask you if you are interested in the other related jobs. So they just keeping dumping you with so many openings that are not of your interest.

Great job board. I really prefer people in recruiting field to use.
Thank you Monster.
The best Job portal i have ever used and job the portal i have decided to use in my future till i work in recruiting industry. Monster has give us multiple methods to search best candidates with using AND, OR,"", etc. I have just started my recruiting career its been only 6-7 months and placed two candidates both the consultants i found was from monster. The best feature i liked in monster is power search.
sometimes there is a problem i don't understand and its not even logical. whenever a resume is not available on monster and i try to view it my account gets logged out. Please solve this problem.
If the monster is open for a long time without any activity on it it gets logged out.

Good job Board for entry level recruiters
Monster is the best job board which helps to search candidates using the boolean search characters like "", (), AND, OR, NOT and it is the best job board in market when it comes to using boolean search the power search option is also very good
when a profile is not available on monster and we click on it the user is thrown out in the login window it should stop there only bot it throws out and filtering should be increased because there are multiple profiles with same name and details
Ramon E. from Far Eastern University

It is convenient to look-up for candidates and it has tons of resume on its database. Monster is ideal if you are looking for IT candidates.
Some of the resumes on the database is not up to date.
Ailene from W3R Consulting

What I like about Monster is that this job board gives you a score of how match each candidates that showed up whenever you do a search. Most of the time, profile thay will appear match your search. You can do advance search here, they've got lot of filters. Plus there are recommendations of resumes whenever you do a posting.
You cannot open each candidate on another tab. You cannot do multi tasking unlike other job boards in the market. Once you open one profile, you need to close it for you to open another profile. Definitely not the best job board for IT Requisitions. Not that user friendly!
A real value for money. A must by tool by every staffing and recruitment company.
Monster has been the only job board that i have been using so far in my career history. The best of their feature is Boolean search, as it accepts all of the boolean commands including "" , AND, OR, () AND NOT, which gives you the finest search than any other available job boards on the market, cheaper rates and unlimited resume views is also an unique feature of this product as many job boards comes with limited resume clicks or views. Monster job postings is also an great feature by the team and it has always helped me to cater niche requirements and has helped me generating higher revenues for me and my organization. Easy access, best interface, clear tabs and check boxes, radius search is one of the super feature of this product which lets you find the talent within the expected region or location.
We often get updates and up gradation calls and notifications regarding the product by the monster team and they are very keen to get us trained by their expertise with the video demonstration and question and answers session.
Sometimes if we click on the profile which is not available on the portal, it takes you out of the search window rater than stopping you then and there by notifying regarding the profile unavailability.
I am hoping this is for the software of Monster where jobs are posted. If it is I love Monster for looking for jobs. The software is very easy to manipulate if you are looking for a specific job title or company. It is very up to date. When finding a position, the software allows you to access the position by sending your resume to the respective company, which I love. It also allows you to create a cover letter for the position.
At this time I have no complaints for this software.
overall Monster is good, it helps me get qualified candidates however it strain me from viewing resume because of the limited views per month
- user friendly
- easy to navigate
- you can costumize your search by filtering your search such as location, years of experience, must have skills, etc.
- you can be notified through email for new or updated resume
-the product is so expensive so your number of views on resume is limited
- when downloading the resume that has pdf and word file, the word file that you downloaded is in picture form so I can't copy some details
1. Monster was the leading platform in sourcing. It established areas from commercial, industrial, engineering and other professions you can think of.
2. Functions are quite simple, enter tha title wish that something shows up with your sourcing
Though they are one of the leading platform in sourcing professionals, I can not say they are the most reliable tool to use.
1. The platform is so simple that it can not give you accurate resulta of what you are looking from
2. They deviate from using booleian strings giving you strict results in terms of what you are looking for
3. Alerts are far different from what you have sourced, and location goes back on its default giving you result of upp to 200-300 miles away
4. Can't say it can return what you have invested. They have one if the expensive platform that may go down the if you don't know how to use the software.
Monster is a thing of the past!
The only time my company has ever considered Monster is for roofing, customer service etc jobs which are not common for us. It would definitely not be something we pay for otherwise as it does not compare to what Indeed or LinkedIn can offer. Might be great for temporary workers, but that's not the industry I recruit for! I think out of anything Monster offers, TalentBin has been the most relevant - we do use that for sourcing, but Monster wouldn't be my first place to go for posting a role!
It's really not the place candidates go for professional roles anymore. I can't see me paying for Monster when there are better platforms out there. Monster was the place you'd go for jobs absolutely in the early 2000s, but there have been other game changers since.

Monster is very straight forward in the user friendly catagory. It is a good way to find seasoned applicants in that it is one of the older software programs for job searching.
With all of the newer job search engines you don't really think to go to monster first. It has been a good way to compare and contrast applicants from other sites.
Dawn from Windsor Pharmacy
This site used to be the biggest database for resumes but since they started upping the payment to use it the database sucks now.
I like that you have access to the database for resumes and you can post jobs really easily once you sign up.
I don't like the fact that you have to sign up and pay before you can try out the site. I don't like that they charge you for every single aspect on the site.
I like that I could easily filter my search results to show only jobs that I was interested in. The postings were easy to access and read.
I disliked the amount of ads and clutter that could be on a page. I also disliked the diversity of jobs in certain fields. Not very helpful for educators.
Dennis from conduent
I do not see a need for this website at all. The jobs are mostly fake and only there to make a company look good. I would not use this site to look for jobs online.
The website is laid out in a simple manner and easy to read. You change your options to see jobs any specific city, area code, or industry.
The site is full of ghost jobs that do not exist or have already been filled by another applicant. I have see jobs that I applied for only to be told that they are not open anymore. Then the next day, the same position appears on the site.

This did not have any significant benefit over similar services, but we did find some strong candidates.
I found this service easy to use and manage candidates. It was a more cost effective option than some of the other services we had tried.
Overall, this was not the best fit for our business. We found just as much success using a lower cost service, and since we had a very limited budget, that was a deal breaker. They do not have any free listing option.
The system allows you to be as descriptive or vague as you want, and has a variety of options for attracting audiences. You can purchase additional search advertisement opportunities to be featured on social media, etc. You can also post internationally.
The system is pricey and the sales reps basically stop helping you after you sign the contract. Sifting through applicants can be cumbersome with the limited pre-screen abilities.
Alexis from Kforce
I like that I can cater my search string to find specific individuals with niche skillets within a specific area or distance. You have many options to search, including how recent they updated their resume.
I find it difficult looking for out of area candidates that want to come to Florida. Also, It is difficult to search by city. Instead, you have to search by zip code which makes it more complicated and not easy to do.
