easy way to evaluate employees and employees reviewing there files

i really like how easy the system is to you. Support team did an excellent presentation.

Pros

system is super easy to navigate. multiple managers can have log ins. Employees can write there evaluations. reviews that match with job descriptions. employees have log ins so that they can monitor. The ability to give positive comments outside the review process for recognizing an employee for doing a great job and there manager can see it also.

Cons

the cost is steep. there was nothing else that stood out in my mind that would have been a Con. This is very user friendly.

Get To Know Your People!

Pros

BirdDogHR has been a huge tool for us to really get to know our people closer. If you don't take care of your people they won't take care of your organization. This platform helps track everything you need to increase employee retention!

Cons

This really requires a team effort to load data into, which is not a bad thing. It is another opportunity to really get to know who is in your organization if you are separated from the front line!

Great Product with Some Quirks

We are relatively new customers but our overall experience has been great. From our initial call to getting everything up and running to every day use, BDHR has been great to work with.

Pros

It is easy to use and in most cases is very intuitive and has a great layout.

Cons

There are a few things that are hard to find within the software. Easier access to offer letters within a candidate profile would be appreciated.

Does the job,but not very efficient.

Pros

Applications from multiple sites are able to be viewed on one site. They are also able to be posted on multiple sites from this site.

Cons

There is no way to group types of jobs into categories when searching or formatting. There is also no way to create a template for reoccurring job posts.

Thanks for your review and comments. We appreciate your feedback. The cons that you noted in the ATS can actually be solved with configurations. Using labels, job posting fields and job templates, we can make your process easier. Please reach out to customer care at 877.252.2168 or customercare@birddoghr.com to discuss in more detail.

I used bird dog daily when i filled in for our HR clerk while she was on maternity leave.

Pros

I like how everything for every person is under there name and it is relatively easy to find the information that you are looking for. It was simple for me to learn how to use with only 2 days of training. Costumer service is very very quick and helpful!

Cons

It is a lot of going back and forth trying to find where things are put. It can be confusing at first but once you get the hang of it it is easy.

This has got to be the most unfriendly user experience i've had in a long time...

Pros

BirdDog HR has nothing positive going for it that I can think of. This system was implemented by our HR department and was a huge mistake.

Cons

I would highly recommend that you not use the BirdDog HR software. It's user experience it terrible and seems very dated.

Effective organization to potential and contracted employees.

With this system I have automated every step of the life cycle of employees with the ease of which is an integrated, cloud-based system.

Pros

What I like about BirdDogHR is offering me a variety of features and services to streamline the tracking of applicants and monitoring performance, and foster collaboration and participation of employees.

Cons

The downside of this software is that it does not include the module where you can plan an employee compensation.

Good Option for Smaller Companies

Pros

Jobs automatically posted to boards, e-mail reminders to renew listings, EEO tracking, e-mail notifications for new applicants listing name and position applied for.

Cons

Candidate and Jobs sections take you to different candidate summaries, confidential EEO Information listed in summary, can't send offer letters through system, not partnered with HRIS for easy on-boarding, no e-signatures. Resume/application was not attached to e-mail notification.

Response from Ann of BirdDogHR

Replied March 2018

BirdDogHR continuously works to enhance our talent management suite and we have implemented offer letters, e-signatures and HRIS integrations into the system. Candidate summaries are permission-based to keep EEO information confidential for non-permissioned users, which is why the job section takes different users to different candidate summaries. Additionally, links to resumes and attachments can be found at the bottom of the email notification after candidates submit their application. Warm Regards, Ann

Very helpful customer service

Pros

Having new employees fill out their required documents through BirddogHR software ensures me they will be filled out correctly without missing important signature blocks, etc.

Cons

I would like to see the application and onboarding portals work with each other more seamlessly. I find I have to jump from one to the other too often and wished it could all be done from one site.

Great product with matching support.

Pros

I like the ease of use, and the increased applicant flow. The ability to easily communicate with applicants and hiring managers is a plus.

Cons

I think that the reports could process more quickly. I think that the Spanish application could be a button next to the 'Apply' button that is in English.

pretty easy to navigate and use.

Pros

I like the ease of the system, structure and use of the options. The options to run reports are great, the capabilities this software has to accommodate working with the construction industry is very helpful and convenient.

Cons

There has been some issues with returning back to the same page and at same state with back arrow option.. it appears everything is lost and you have to start you progress all over.. from setting up a search list or even just opening up a job list and specific employee, once you hit that back arrow you return back to the starting your process over again. ugh I also would like see the option to share applications with other entities within our company.

Good company, nice people, sometimes challenging to get them to change..small company, develops slow

Pros

Affordable and pretty easy to use. The ATS is a good product that is affordable and helps us source more easily especially for young professionals.

Cons

Challenging to get change to occur at times and slow development. Software at this point is still a little clunky to navigate because of the navigation between the multiple modules as it is currently designed. BDHR has a plan to clean this up, looking forward to it.

BirdDog HR is terrific, functional, easy to use!

Pros

Very easy to maneuver around in system. Makes sense, logical! We used to use BirdDog exclusively, very successfully. A corporate decision to move to ADP prompted changes, but we still use BirdDog as our main function of BLASTING job postings out there!!! Works GREAT!! Oh and Customer Service is AWESOME!!!!

Going from a paper driven manual system to fully electronic was the most difficult BDHR made it easy

Pros

It's practical and simple to use. As a government contractor, creating the applicant log was a breeze!

Cons

Some limitations force us to close open jobs and re-open the same job to correct some information, it helps that we can duplicate the job so we aren't forced to re-enter the info just correct what needs to be corrected

Good and basic

Pros

Once the decision was made to purchase the ATS module we were up and running very quickly. Our contact helped set up our first job posting and walked us through various options--customer support was great. They still check in to see how we are doing and what they can do for us. Our job postings look neat and professional. Links all worked perfectly .

Cons

Would like more flexibility for our landing page for ATS. Some choices in layout or background and imbedded links or photographs or video. I'm not sure how effective the upgrades for various job boards is for us. Posting with colleges through Handshake would be nice.
A little less clicking would be nice.

Recruiting software that is for too difficult for others to easily use.

Very little. I don't like the software at all. It is too difficult and time consuming to manage.

Pros

Once a job is entered/posted, it is easy to repost it to other locations if needed. It is value priced so that is the reason my company uses it.

Cons

Difficult for the site managers to use. It is a program built for recruiters - not the common manager. BirdDogHR will do updates that will mess up what you have established such as an application but you don't know until applicants say something. It is cumbersome and not at all easy to navigate.

Finding candidates for our jobs.

Pros

It is relatively easy to post jobs and get the applicants. We have had good response in most of our locations.

Cons

It is complicated to bring other users and get attached to our websites so the jobs post there also.

The system has helped us considerably in improving our applicant flow.

Particularly poor survey methodology to require a minimum length of response. Many survey participants will chose to abandon the process rather than embellish their answers.

Pros

Ease of operation. Sorry this is all I actually have to say. Having a minimum number of characters is a flaw in your survey methodology.

Cons

Scrolling through too many screens to get the actual information I want. I particularly find it a con that when I try to take my valuable time to complete a survey, I am told that my answers are too concise. Don't ask me if you don't like my answer. Poor methodology.

BirdDogHR - Total package ATS

Allowed our organization to provide front line management with acces to review candidates on daily basis.

Pros

Ability for front line managers to have access and view candidates that apply.
Built in Social Media sharing capability with one stop show to spread the word that our company is hiring.

Cons

some managers don't have time to filter thru the candidates on a daily basis and requires HR/recruiters to do the heavy lifting in filtering for experienced candidates.

BirdDog HR was very easy to work with and they listened to us on developing the ease of use for us.

Pros

The customer service and training have been fantastic. We can go back to our trainers whenever needed to clarify information or to ask for additional help. They are very willing to work with us and meet our needs as a Company.

Cons

One item I would say is a Con, is the system is not fully programmable to how we would exactly like it. However, our customer service reps have been great in showing us alternatives.
