Great Solution!

Great customer service, and great product.

Pros

Everything was intuitive and easy to use. The idea behind it all is fantastic!

Cons

I ended up not using this software because our recruiting process is not very complex. There is no need to identify keywords or anything like that.

Stand apart from your competitors

I absolutely love this product. Candidates love the video job descriptions and that they can send in a video prescreen from their own mobile device! The team has been extremely responsive with customization needs. The price is so reasonable I use my own PCard there was no need to get approval from the board to spend 100k.

Pros

Video job descriptions Video candidate prescreens Ability to share video presents with team and managers

Cons

Not really a "con' however I would like the ability to post on job boards from DnO

Reasons for Choosing Ducknowl

Does not require an enterprise-level contract Flexibility and quick response on customization Easy to use user interface• Video job descriptions Quick Apply application page Free ATS integration Free CSV files weekly until ATS integration

Great software!

Great! Their customer service level is very good, prompt and kind.

Pros

I love the video and skill test features. Their anti-cheating software is brilliant! This helps make a better technical selection of candidates. Also, the video feature is loved by hiring managers. Definitely, a game changer!

Cons

A couple of features need to be improved, nothing that makes it hard to use or understand for users and invites.

Reasons for Switching to Ducknowl

Ducknowl features worked much better for our needs.

YES to Ducknowl

Pros

I use Ducknowl everyday now to screen candidates. My phone calls have been trimmed down to only 5 minutes per call. Ducknowl does the rest for me. It can be hard to get candidates to do the tests, but the platform now has a feature that will automatically send reminders to the candidates to complete the screenings. I love how time efficient it is and I've improving my number of hires.

Cons

I would like to the option to be able to stop the video and drag to start from anywhere. Sometimes I miss what they say in the video answer and instead of being able to go back a few seconds, I have to wait for the the rest of the video to play out and then restart from the beginning. This is such a small detail though! Because this platform has worked wonders for me

Ducknowl Value

Pros

We have worked closely with Ducknowl and they have been very responsive to our requests. The enhancements they have added makes it very productive and works well with our Greenhouse ATS. We have found it is very helpful in accelerating our search process. We can quickly narrow our list of candidates and simplify the process of getting our top candidates to the hiring managers.

Cons

At this point I don't have any issues. All of my enhancement requests have been addressed.

Reasons for Switching to Ducknowl

We found Ducknowl was a better fit for our company

Quality results

Amazing! I can’t say enough about the tool and the people behind it. They have truly thought of everything to make my life as a recruiter, that much easier. Their tool delivers quality candidates and helps you filter out the passive users. It is great for initial screenings and for tracking metrics.

Pros

DucknOwl is east to use and is customized to your needs. It is a great tool to reach out to source and organize quality candidates.

Cons

I have nothing negative to say about this software. The owners and developers are constantly modifying it to meet the needs of every company they work with.
