HireCentric Software


 

HireCentric is cloud-based recruitment management software for small and midsize businesses that offers applicant tracking, external job board posting, requisition management, reference checking tools and employee assessments within a suite.

HireCentric features applicant tracking which enables users to post job vacancies on social media and job portals. With the help of scoring and disqualification filters on screening questions, recruiters can filter out applications based on job-related questions.

HireCentic also features embedded employee behavioral assessments and integrations with cognitive tests, job skill tests and other assessments. HireCentric can send automated emails to references, as well as launch background check requests to applicants via a bi-directional integration with a trusted provider.

HireCentric also integrates with ExactHire’s onboarding software, OnboardCentric, which allows users to manage documentation for new hires and supports e-signatures. HireCentric users can prompt OnboardCentric users to complete an employee’s profile that has been partially auto-populated using data from HireCentric.

Pros

Having used ExactHire now for nearly four years, I can barely fathom how things worked in *the old days. We have adapted the platform to fit our recruiting department needs and have had sensational results. The ability to easily track multiple job postings, as well as each candidates' progress through the process - without a single email, notepad, or Post It Note - is phenomenal. We currently have 30 positions posted across the U.S., for which there are 8 recruiters on my team. The ease of organization of data is invaluable. Having our own proprietary, personally-branded career center where applicants come to review the post and apply, has increased our value proposition exponentially. The ability to communicate with applicants via email, right from within the system, saves us an incredible amount of time due to the flexibility and automation components. Above all else, the Customer Support team is by far the best in the software support business. Customer reps are highly responsive (as in, within minutes) to every support request. Rep has taken the time to coach me on key features as well provided insight on the tricky in's and out's of compliant job applications. Rep and I have such a great rapport its like working with a friend. For the price point, it is an incredible value, and it has changed the landscape of what I do on a daily basis. We could not do what we do, without ExactHire.

Cons

It is hard to find a con, honestly. I would have to go out on a limb and say that creating a custom report is probably where I struggle the most - but there are so many pre-populated report templates that this isn't a major issue. It will take a few attempts to understand/master the formatting of a job post (HTML is running in the background), but once we crossed this hurdle we now have GREAT looking job posts every time.

Really easy software to use and great for job postings. You can set up new ones or copy old ones to use over again with minimal changes.

Pros

Very easy to set up new job postings. We use it for almost all of our jobs. Iit very useful in getting our jobs posted. The software is easy to use and easy to copy an old job posting to make new ones. It is probably one of the most user friendly software around.

Faster turn around on hiring by streamlining the application process directly to the managers.

Pros

I love how easy it is to post new jobs and review applicants. We have been able to streamline the process so applications go straight to the hiring manager. This cut down work time in HR by eliminating the need to print and send applications via inter office mail to the managers for review.

Cons

The reporting is a challenge sometimes. I would like to see more customizable reports rather than just the static reports that already exist.

By taking a layer out of the process by removing the middle person from printing and forwarding all the applications to each manager we have a faster and easier application review now.

Pros

I love the ease of posting new available positions. We use a template for the basic position and then add the location to the posting. We are able to customize the applications with particular questions for the applicant based on that particular job and can send the applications among different managers that may be involved in the hiring process. I also like that we can see each position an applicant has applied for an read what notes that hiring manager left.

Cons

The reporting can sometimes be a challenge to get exactly what I am looking for but most of the time I get what I need from it.

Michael, we appreciate your review response for HireCentric ATS, and are glad that you find the system easy to use and effective. As you may already know, we do occasionally run into requests for the ability to assign a single job listing to multiple cities; however, in order to maintain our integrations with certain 3rd party job boards (and their requirements for a single city location per job), we have maintained our requirement for one location per job listing, as well. Please keep the ideas coming though, as our product development road map is heavily influenced by customer suggestions.

I like that the jobs that I post go directly to multiple external hiring websites just as any ATS would.

Cons

The ATS will not let me search by applicant. I will type in the applicants name exactly as it appears on the application and it will say no results found. Then I will go into the job that the candidate applied for and there they are. I have played around with all of the filters and have come to the conclusion that the hard coding must be wrong. I have brought this to the attention of Exacthire and nothing has been resolved.

Grace, thank you for your candor and I'm sorry you've been having difficulties with applicant search. If you haven't already, when searching for a candidate's name, please be sure to use either the First Name or Last Name search filter option depending on which is appropriate (rather than the Keyword filter, for example) to ensure success. If you have taken this specific approach without success, our Client Services team would be happy to investigate and they may be contacted at support@exacthire.com.

More applications due to the ease of use for applicants. Our old system had a lot of issues causing applicants to stop the application process and never apply.

Pros

The cost, the customer service we receive, and the ease of use of the system for admins and managers.

Cons

I have not ran across anything that I don't really like at this point. I do wish we could schedule interviews via exact hire and they would be put on our calendars.

HireCentric provides us with multiple functionalities at a price tailored to fit our budget. We have lowered our recruiting costs, while increasing not only the number of new hires, but in their quality as well. I can post our jobs to multiple boards with one click and better reach the target niche I was struggling to find before. My company is virtual and spread across the country, so this allows us to easily share notes about applicants at different stages in the interview process. The Applicant Tracking System piece has made my job much easier.

Cons

My only request/advice for ExactHire with their HireCentric service is to give us an app! As much as I am out and about or traveling for work, an app I can better navigate the site from my phone would be a huge benefit.

Excellent tech support. The staff responds immediately and in terms I understand.

The tool itself could use some fine tweaking. We've had issues/concerns over formatting using cut/paste with Word. What we see doesn't always appear as the same when posted out to colleges (missing bullet points, line spacing, etc.).

Creating a new job template should be one in the same with creating a new job posting (too many steps to posting a job). Should be able to cut and paste a job, create the custom questions, see a preview prior to posting (which HireCentric does not allow you to do), determine where you want it posted and then go. I always have to log into our website after posting and take a quick check to ensure formatting is correct.

I'd like to see the Notes section capture more content of email communications.

Searching for an applicant's resume should be easier. When I'm finished I should be able to go back to the home page, but rather it gives me the option of closing the screen and return to the previous page, but that never happens. It then takes me entirely out of HireCentric so I end up logging back in.

I have yet to figure out (much less use) the purpose of the Spotlight tool. We don't use the "generate a link" option.

I do like the fact that their team will post to a limited number of colleges/universities. This is a huge time saver for me (even though it might be posted a couple days later.)
I do like the ease of knowing if I've sent an applicant a request to complete the remaining portions of the application just by looking at the icons.
I do like the reference links if I'm in a jam.
I miss seeing the colored picture icons.
I do like the ease of creating customized questions.
I appreciate the fact that I can request a background check in one easy sweep.
I do like the established templates (e.g., asking a candidate at the beginning of a background check, thanking them for their interest in employment, etc.).
And I give the tech support team an A+ for always answering the silliest of my questions.

Thank you for asking for our feedback.

Molly, thanks for taking so much time to share your insight--we appreciate it! To address many of your points, I wanted to make sure you were aware of the following: 1) in order to have job description formatting on point, it's important to strip the formatting out of the Word doc. or PDF before pasting it into the ATS--check out our knowledge base tip sheet on this topic; 2) you actually can create a new job listing using an old job listing and skip the job template part of the process; 3) the "email history" section of the "Notes & History" tab of the applicant record does capture outgoing email messages sent from the ATS; and, 4) we'd be happy to discuss the resume search workflow with you if you're still having issues--there may be a better way to accomplish what you are describing and you shouldn't be getting kicked out of the system. Thank you for so many positive comments describing the features that you enjoy as well...especially the A+ to our tech team!

I've been using HireCentric for around 4 months. It takes a while to get to know your way around in the software. They do have videos and links to go find answers for yourself, but we are so busy I dont have time to go find the answers. We love being able to have job related questions, and ratings for the questions. I love the hiring managers being able to go into the system to review the data and their ability to mark which are qualified, not qualified, wanting to call, etc.

Pros

I like being able to ad job specific questions. I also like being able to label where the job is in the hiring level. I love having all the data in the software to come back to review without going to paper resumes.

Cons

The software is hard to learn how to maneuver around in. They have tutorials and videos to go find answers for yourself but I dont have time to stop posting a job and go look for a quick answer I am trying to find.

Advice to Others

It needs the ability to post in multiple cities without posting individual ads. We had a job that could be worked from four different cities but it was only one job, but we had to list it 4 times, one per city. It caused a lot of problems in our office and in the field because employees started wondering what was going on.

As a company that has over 50 retail locations, HireCentric offers the ease of multiple Manager accounts to track applications. Visually the site is very user friendly and does not complicate the process. Mass emails, unlimited postings, and unlimited user accounts are my favorite features. Also, the one on one customer support we receive is timely and tailored exactly to our needs, we talk to the same Rep every time! We have seen an increase in our Indeed applications which has helped us get connected with some of our best candidates. We are very happy with HireCentric!

Pros

-Unlimited Postings
-Connected to Indeed
-Unlimited Accounts
-One on one customer service with the same Rep
-Customization of applications per posting

Cons

-Refreshing the postings weekly to keep fresh

Kelsey, thanks for your detailed comments--much appreciated! We're glad that your organization, with many locations, is able to take full advantage of HireCentric's unlimited user seats and job postings. We're happy that our close-knit, U.S.-based Client Services team can deliver a highly personal service experience to you, too. Regarding your comment about refreshing job postings on a weekly basis (rather than monthly), we intentionally do monthly because of past experience with the quality assurance teams of free 3rd party job boards blacklisting employers that tried to "game" the system by re-pushing jobs too frequently in order to get a more recent job start date listed. Therefore, our monthly push frequency is a protective measure for our clients to ensure that they continue to take advantage of being included in free job listings offered by third party job boards. If you have any other questions about this, please don't hesitate to contact our Client Services team.
