About CareerPlug


CareerPlug provides recruiting and HR software solution that includes applicant tracking and paperless onboarding. With the tools to attract and evaluate candidates, hiring managers are able to make their process more consistent to ultimately make better hiring decisions.

CareerPlug begins with candidate experience, automatically distributing job postings to job boards including Indeed, and building a branded careers page. 

Using a custom job builder, companies can ensure applicants are qualified for their opportunities by including custom prescreen questions.  This helps users sort and score applications to quickly identify top candidates.

Users manage this process on the Applicants page, where they can take advantage of other tools, such as unlimited assessments to screen candidates.  

CareerPlug’s paperless onboarding takes the next step, transitioning new hires to productive employees.  The software allows users to build onboarding checklists and convert paper forms to electronic documents with a PDF form builder.

Time Efficiency and Hiring with Ease is what every My Gym needs!

Like many of us that are Owners and/or Directors of My Gym Children's Fitness Center, one of the priorities in this business is to provide a top-notch quality program and the utmost care for the children and families. In order to achieve this and more, we all need staff with the potential to become outstanding My Gym Teachers. For me, there was no place better to find this than through CareerPlug! I was very pleased to participate in testing the applicant software for CareerPlug. It's very intuitive, easy to use, and reaches more credible job seekers than other sites and sifting through emails of career inquiries. There is a great balance between ease of use and features finding the most qualified candidates via the Personality Assessments that makes the hiring process effective and completed immediately. Their unparalleled support addressed issues (if any) quickly and assisted with customizing new job ads perfect for the gym. Cutting down on the time spent filtering through each applicant has been one of the most important features for me. We are all very busy teaching classes and running a business. Not only has CareerPlug met that expectation, but also has excellent service with an easy to learn, quality system. I highly recommend using CareerPlug to recruit the best candidates that will exemplify who we are as a company and in turn, be an amazing My Gym teacher!

Pros

CareerPlug keeps things in a centralized location with the Personality Assessment Scores, Applicant Profiles, Resumes, and Pre-screen Scores all on the same page!

Cons

A feature I would like to see modified is to make the email responses from the hiring manager to the applicant via the applicant profile page. We see the responses from the applicant, but it would be nice to reply immediately through their profile.

Very functional Software.Very Helpful Team!

Pros

The Software offers features for sorting and assessing applicants which are fantastic. Surprisingly, it allows us to craft ads and post them from within Carrerplug.The support team who we have dealt with has been absolutely Fantastic! Patient, Helpful and sincere. Great Asset!
The cost is a terrific value for what is included. We got the HR and onboarding package. This makes our work so much easier and having all these documents in one place rather than emailing back and forth to applicants/hires is helpful.

Cons

Although it has a TON of features the UI, I feel, could be more intuitive. Make buttons for functions not just small text links placed in less than intuitive places. Software should allow for objectives (reviewing applicants, changing text etc) in a simplified way. Too much clicking around to learn. By redesigning this should lessen the contact with your (great) customer service team.

Super User Friendly!

Pros

Product is very user friendly & welcoming to the eyes. There have been a few enhancements that have improved the functionality of the platform quite a bit. Although an applicant may apply several times throughout the year it groups everything together. Customer service is super!

Cons

When an applicant completes an application one time, if they aren't selected & come back a year later & try to apply their original application is still in the system & can't be updated.

Good for multiple users and locations

Pros

I like Careerplug because you can use it for multiple locations and users. We can post a job and access just our own applicants or those from neighboring spots. New option to post/boost on Indeed is a good improvement.

Cons

A little difficult to navigate if someone applies for multiple jobs or had a prior interview. Clunky but good value.

Highly Recommend Career Plug!

WOW! Awesome product - love it. So easy to use. We have had no glitches or problems with the program. It does everything they said it did and more! My end users love it too - has improved efficiency in hiring, improved communication with hiring managers and the candidates and let us go paperless! Made our lives in so much easier!

Pros

Ease of use.
Fantastic A+ Service Team who respond so quickly and are so friendly.
System is seamless, intuitive for both the company and the candidate.
Allows the hiring process to be paperless.
Electronic scheduling of candidates is probably my favorite component.
Can use the system from anywhere.
Mobile friendly.
Assessment options are great.
Good email template options to respond to all candidates.

Cons

The only thing that I don't like is that I did not buy the product sooner!

Picking CareerPlug was a great move!

Pros

What I like most about the software is it's functionality and interface. The interface is very user friendly which made training our Management team a lot easier. The service we have received has been great. Any time we have a question or need help we have always been able to reach someone on their service team and in instances where we have to leave a message we always receive a quick response back. This is our first real attempt at using an applicant tracking system prior to that our applications were done on paper. CareerPlug comes with a lot of features and functionality that we have yet to start utilizing. We can't wait!

Cons

The thing I like least about the product is that as you move an applicant through the recruit flow and designate them as "hired" in the system they are automatically moved to the "teams" section of the website. This is a minor issue. To me the teams section should only list users with login access.

Great Value for the Money!

I would first like to say how much CareerPlug has made a difference in the number of applicants we have received since we have begun utilizing them in July 2016. For the price point they offer, it is one of the best values for the money that is out there right now.

Pros

- I love the way the applicants are listed by location and job description.
- Daily Applicant summary notifications are clear and concise.
- Ability to screen applicants on initial application. This saves time interviewing candidates who are not qualified.
- Ability to add multiple users to the account with no additional charge.
- Customer service is very prompt in responding to your issues.

Cons

- Reporting features are not very customize able.
- They only post to 8 free job boards.
- Sometimes screens don't automatically refresh after status updates. Whether this is an internet issue or server issue remains to be seen.

Extremely good product

Careerplug has been a life saver from start to finish. As an owner hiring and firing is a key component to my roles and responsibilities. This product makes that task super easy.

Pros

This product is easy to use, and consolidates all of the candidates into one place. I can make decisions on multiple candidates at a time, and then move them through the hiring process with ease.

Cons

The HR section of the site doesn't seem to be as intuitive as the hiring side. It still works, but we have had to work through a few bugs namely sending paperwork to newly hired candidates to sign.

So easy to use, jumped in without the training and just hired my first candidate!

So glad I paid the small fee to use this service. Others I know have been paying thousands to hire and CareerPlug was so easy and comprehensive. It allowed me to filter through applicants using the test results, response times to emails or no response at all, and generally how their resumes and applications were laid out. With that, I could send rejection emails without spending too much time on each one. Will be using CareerPlug for my next hires for sure! Thanks for having this service available! James

Pros

Easy to use. Testing was very informative. Benchmarking team to compare to applicants was a must. Prefilled emails for each stage. Recommendations from time to time were helpful. Provided tailored interview questions for phone and in person, including a scoring system. Low cost.

Cons

Small system glitch in which I was not able to send emails directly from CareerPlug and was forced to send from my Outlook. This was fixed within a short period of time.
