    As a user I did not initially recieve any training with the software and was frustrated with my attempts to utilize the available functions, However after a little training and a couple of Q&A sessions the software is effecient and time saving.

    Pros

    it can be customized to meet most any need. documents and links are easily added

    Cons

    it is not very intuitive, training from a seasoned user is almost a necessity if you want to get the most from the product

    Pros

    Was easy to get through but we had some issues when handing off to other staff to use. Needed more changes that were not easy to do for someone who is not hands on with software like this.

    Cons

    Can't really give any cons about this one. When we had it switched over to other staff they had some issues getting used to it at first but the support offered was great at walking through and assisting in making changes.

    It's a good stand alone ATS.

    Pros

    I liked how easy it was to use Applicant Stack - and that we could post a job once and have it hit several job boards simultaneously. I liked the ability to create questions, and rule out unqualified applicants - it saves a lot of time.

    Cons

    Drop down lists and filters have improved some but could still be better. The ultimate reason we aren't using this software now is because although there are integrations available, our company went with a software that had everything in one suite, that worked seamlessly together (CRM, Recruiting, Payroll, Books, Time Tracking, Invoicing, Campaigns, etc.).

    Easy to use, easy to set up.

    Pros

    ApplicantStack is very easy to use. Once you have taken the time to set up your questionnaires and templates, posting a job takes minutes. Also it's easy to review applications and resumes, everything is just a click away.

    Cons

    ApplicantStack's reporting tool is cumbersome to use and reports are hard to set up. They have some pre-made reports available, however I would recommend getting help when trying to set up a custom report.

    Finding qualified job applicants.

    Pros

    It is easy for applicants to fill out and submit their applications. When they complete the application, they get a receipt and we get a notification.

    Cons

    Until you get use to the layout, navigating can be cumbersome. Once you get familar it is pretty easy to use.

    It is easy to get the information that I need in a timely manner. I like that you can look up the employee's name to get to their information faster. All in all I like applicant stack.

    Cons

    I wish we didn't have to edit their information. I wish we could just put the information in the system without doing so many steps. Like the drug test we have to edit the information and then once you are finished with that you have to update the information why can't we just update the information?

    Pros

    Ease of use and multiple functions and having the ability to review history of each applicant. I like the menu tabs that allow you to easily set a stage, set a job, launch a job, email a candidate and I especially like making notes on the candidates to track my process and conversations with the candidates.

    Cons

    There is nothing I dislike about the software. I have not maneuvered through uploading documents and I need to access that and seek help from the support team. I feel I am missing some highlights of the application process because of this, but this is not a system issue, it an operator issue.

    Cons

    Some functions could be fine-tuned for better efficiency, and less hassle for the user. Sometimes the generated reports are inaccurate compared to the solid data I track on my own.

    Being able to maneuver applicants and discover potential applicants through talent pool

    Pros

    Being able to see who attempted to fill out an application in the talent pool. The automatic email responses is a plus as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes I cannot see that there is a duplicate application until I later look up the applicant. I wish there was a notification for when an applicant is sitting in a certain category for a long time.

    Easily keeping track of new applicants and no longer utilizing paper applications.

    Pros

    The part I like the most about ApplicantStack is the fact that you can move the applicants through the hiring process so easily.

    Cons

    The part I like the least about ApplicantStack is the fact that applicants do not realize that the emails with links have more than one link to click on. They end up completing one or two and do not realize they have more to complete.

    One of the things I enjoy most would be the convenience, versatility and e-signatures related to the forms library for new hire paperwork in the portal, as well as the email history and easy tracking of applicant communication.

    Cons

    We experience confusion with the duplication around assigning tasks and scheduling events when more than one person is working on the process. Specifically, if you assign a task or schedule an event to do the phone screen , for example, and the person doesn't use the task or event to open the phone screen template, but rather goes directly to it on the tab and inputs their conversation, the task/event is not marked as complete.
