Easy to Use System

Overall its an affordable, easy to use system.

Pros

This is affordable solution for smaller businesses or businesses that don't do a ton of hiring. Its pretty user friendly and allows for unlimited users.

Cons

If you pay for the basic service (post 5 or less jobs a month) it lacks key features that are really important and standard in other systems such as message templates.

Interviewing software consolidated and amplified!

Overall, a great product. I highly recommend it.

Pros

Everything you need at your fingertips! This program completely consolidates the hiring process. It's a one-stop shop. many features such as Online job postings, Referral program, Background check, Pre-employment testing, Video interviewing, Enhanced search, Social media integration, Form builder, Messaging, Resume import, Offer letter, Applicant tagging, Calendar and scheduling, Onboarding document, Job requisition workflow, Analytic tools, Activity Feed

Cons

3 separate packages which are reasonably priced however most people who hire go with the "pro package" which is the priciest. The other two less expensive packages only offer 5 and 10 job postings which most hiring managers will not use since there are almost always more than 10 jobs to post

Great when looking to hire!

Pros

This is a great program and was so helpful when we were looking to hire. It allowed us to post our job online and when applicants would apply we could rate the applicants with ease! Made hiring a breeze

Cons

Wish we would have found this sooner! Was worth the price and was so easy to set up and post our job listing!

Easy to use software product at a good price point

Pros

The ability to post directly to dozens of job boards is extremely useful and time saving. I use it for every posting.

Cons

The user interface is outdated and in need of a refresh. There's a lost opportunity for an even better user experience.

Pros

Easy to use
Awesome, responsive customer service - they always email a reply quickly
Option to post to other job boards (free and paid)
Easy to link to our website
Great value

Cons

The only missing features that I've wished for are the ability to move or copy an applicant to another job and an easy way to import resumes that are emailed to me.

Overall a good low cost Applicant Tracking Software

Pros

* Very reasonable pricing options in comparison to comparable softwares
* Customizable options to meet your business needs
* Easy to setup job postings and to get them posted, also able to save profiles and recreate the posting as needed

Cons

* Hard to track a candidate who has applied multiple times to different positions and the notes that are taken for the profile on one position is not readily available when candidate is screened by another recruiter for a different position;
* Widget does not allow any form of sorting on your home webpage screen. The most recent position goes to the top of the list. No option to split postings between say front line positions vs. management positions;
* Screening questions can be bypassed by indeed.com's "apply now" button, so screening question is not consistently adhered to;
* The functions of rating a New Applicant candidate moves them immediately to a the Rated Applicant without allowing for the option to move them there or archive them;
* Weak filtering of international applicants

Excellent tool for enhanicng my client services.

We're able to offer another service to our clients we have not in the past allowing us to come full circle with our offerings.

Pros

The software is easy to use as is placing ads. The support team is fantastic and always available should you need to contact them for anything.

Cons

After rating someone, it automatically puts them into the rating file and you have to go fishing for them to do notes or anything else with them.

Have always had a great exp. until recently response is bad and no one addresses issues to tickets.

Organization of candidates and easy to communicate and syndicate.

Pros

Easy to use. That' s all I want to say here.

Cons

They need to have the city, state where the applicant is - in the header so you don't have to open the file to know. That would save a lot of time. CrimCheck has a serious communication problem. Did Bunnie leave? She was always responsive to tickets and none were ever outstanding. It's been terrible lately.

good product overall at a very good price

Pros

Pretty easy to use and self-explanatory - don't need a lot of tutorials, etc. Visually very appealing (easy to read and understand, clean lay out).

Cons

would like to be able to customize stages for each opening. While it offers a "schedule function" it does not seem to work very well (do what I would like it to do). Wish I could integrate our openings with Ladders.

Pros

Super helpful to aggregate applicants and keep the process moving forward with various hiring managers in multiple locations.

Cons

Not too sure there is something I really dislike. I know there are additional features that I haven't tapped into yet.

Very user-friendly site. Makes recruiting so much easier.

It makes the hiring process run a lot smoother, especially when there are multiple hands in the pot.

Pros

I like the ability to have all correspondence and records stored on this site. It makes it easy when working with different hiring managers. I love the ability to customize each hiring/scouting experience based on the different roles. The ability to post on different sites all at once is heaven sent as well.

Cons

I feel the search option could be improved when trying to search candidates by name. While the customization help to ease the experience for prospective hires and hiring managers. The initial set up can be a little tedious, especially if you are crunched for time.

Easy to sign up

We have not received any benefits yet. The only thing we have received are a few non-qualified applicants

Pros

It's great it posts to many boards at one time. It is easy to set up - lots of extras if you want to pay for them in addition to the large fee you pay for general use.

Cons

Expensive for what you get, too restrictive on job postings, extras that cost way too much, not much response received for the amount of money paid

For a small, growing business, HT has been a one of the best talent acquisition tools we have

Pros

Easy to use, easy to share with teammates
Great customer support
Excellent ROI
Continuous improvements

Cons

Sometimes toggling between messaging and candidate info is cumbersome. For example, if I begin to write a message, but need to confirm some profile info, the message isn't saved and I have to begin again.

Could be a great fit for some companies, but wasn't the right software for us.

Multi users for a flatrate.

Pros

I like that HiringThing allows me to add a bunch of users without the the additional cost. The UI is clean and most functionality is pretty straight forward. The reports and dashboards are basic but nice, could work for some companies but didn't give us the insights that we needed.

Cons

I think the biggest drawback of the system is that an applicant doesn't have a profile in which multiple applications can live, and where they can view the status of his/her applications. This poses reporting, and UX, challenges for internal personnel should applicants apply to more than one job .

Strong features, engaging interface, great customer service, improved results

Pros

I both recruit and use this ATS across multiple high tech clients. No other ATS had this feature. HiringThing provides easy of use for hiring managers, affordability and a solid platform of features for savvy recruiters. With more use is more enjoyment, I especially appreciate the larger resume view area. Other ATS are clunky in comparison. My first time ATS user clients/managers find it easy to use and I appreciate the extensive options. We've come to rely on the notes area which provides a snapshot of activity timeline and interview notes. The help/tutorial area is robust, engaging and effective for quick How Tos. I began using their background check provider- Crimcheck- easy to set-up, pricing is 40% lower than HireRight and easy to access internally with two clicks at the candidate profile.

Our results- better social media presence & sourcing, ease of scheduling interviews and effective hiring manager and candidate communication produced better qualified candidates and faster overall hiring.

Cons

These are small and most could be solved if I ask questions or check their extensive Help Area- 1. preview outgoing messages. 2. Adding a ready to use and change employment application would help clients who have a solid payroll system but don't have or use an HRIS system. Woofoo does not seem to be sufficient.

Great value for the money!

Pros

It's very user-friendly and intuitive. It was super easy to roll out and the managers were able to quickly learn how to navigate through the system. I love how you can do everything in one place from scheduling interviews to extending offers to running a background check and hiring someone.

Cons

I wish there was a way they could refresh your job posting more often. If you don't post at the exact right time and don't get enough hits initially, you could end up with a lack of candidates to choose from.

HiringThing makes managing search processes and communications with candidates more efficient.

This has really streamlined the organizations ability to manage multiple hiring processes without losing track of candidates. Ease of communications internally and with candidates has improved and the efficiency allows us to focus less on logistics and more on finding top talent.

Pros

It's easier to communicate with candidates, track where candidates are on the process, and share information with other hiring committee members. I appreciate a separate platform so this doesn't get lost in Email.

Cons

I wish the EEOC information could be used to better track candidate demographics over time or by search.
I wish there was a way to automate archiving incomplete applications.

I'm able to run my search consulting business using this software

Pros

The ease of looking at the information and the ability to sort the information and find all applications by the same person.

Cons

The lack of flexibility in the app on my iPad and iPhone. That needs improvement although I do appreciate that there is an app.
