    Pros

    Basis job add publication and submission, I have subscribed for ATS and VMS.
    ATS looked good with usable functions and have no complaints.

    Cons

    Lacked basic functionality required for any VMS.
    - Cannot capture candidate email/phone details
    - Does not support decimals on amount/fee fields
    - No edit option for the vendor to make any corrections or updates to the submissions
    - Rates submitted by one vendor/agencies for candidates is visible for all other vendors/agencies
    - Any updates on the status of the candidate on ATS is not updated back on VMS

    I am absolutely unhappy with my decision to go with jobadder and I will recommend that you clearly evaluate before you signup.

    Pros

    The Product:
    First of all, I rated the product 4 stars overall only b/c I couldn't give them 4.5 stars. 5 in my book is nirvana, so overall me and my team are very pleased with the product.

    Very easy to use and configure/customize. UI is clean and easy to navigate, so you don't get lost like you do with a busy UI. Grid/List view gives you easy sort/filter options with links to all the related records. We've only been using the product for about 2 months and we are very happy. I'd say our team has become advanced users of ATS platforms, as JobAdder is our 4th and hopefully our last (for the foreseeable future) ATS. They are very responsive to the user community's feedback for feature enhancements, so new releases are always bringing new functionality. Data migration was well organized, but the difficulty in the implementation comes from not being intimate with how JobAdder works so we had some clean up (and still do) to keep from having inaccurate data. Junk In, Junk Out...as they say.

    The Support:
    Fantastic, responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly. I can't be more pleased with their support!

    Cons

    The Product:
    The scheduling and outlook integration is weak and desperately needs improvement. The fact you can't create a recurring meeting in the ATS is mind boggling, and the fact that you can't create a team appointment with more than one other user is also a bit mind boggling. The synchronization between ATS and Outlook calendars only goes one way, so there is still a lot of clicking back & forth to make sure appointments received in outlook get added to. Would be nice if job ads that are posted within the system would automatically close when the job is filled...but not much of a hassle to update...just one more thing to remember.

    Sales Automation and sequencing doesn't exist. It would be awesome if they took some notes from Salesforce on the lead-to-order (win/loss) process.

    There are other minor issues, as is typical with ANY software, but we are optimistic that they can and will be addressed in future releases...hopefully in the very near future.

    It has a very comprehensive job boards collection. I am amazed to see the most of the major job boards are being listed.

    Cons

    Not as user friendly to try out before buying the membership. Requesting a demo is fine but then I don't to be facing a sales pitch and then try it out.

    Pros

    JobAdder lets hiring managers pull resumes from the web and add them to their system. This allows users to find the best skilled employees that meet their needs.

    Cons

    Sometimes the software is very slow- depending on the day you never know. This can be quite frustrating, but overall not a deal breaker.

    Better recruitment management.

    Pros

    It's so easy to manage all the resumes we have collected from other job boards. Very user friendly.

    Cons

    I think the part where it parses and decodes resumes. The system struggles in this area. I think it needs improvement especially in decoding resumes in PDF format.

    Pros

    As we all know Jobadder is a cloud based tool so you can easily access any candidate from anywhere.Its quite fast and smooth as compared to other cloud based tools in the market ,Job adder makes more sense with its realtively fast response and fast resume fetching abailitites

    Cons

    Though job adder is good at certain things it needs some some more automation like workable where you can import a candidate and workable would search for more information online which is not there in Job adder , you have feed stuff manually.

    Overall great if you're looking for your first program and want to get everything under one roof.

    Pros

    This software program has all of the basics that you need to get everything under one roof. Great way to get organized and keep you team updated. User-friendly and pretty easy to pick up on. We're a few weeks in, but we're happy we went with this program so far. The client portal is really nice!!

    Cons

    Getting everything up and going is a bit of a hassle-- there's lots of tips and great customer service, but you have to figure out what you all need and set it up yourself. The outlook add-in doesn't work if your emails are through Live, and their application form and text system could use a bit more work to be the most user-friendly. But overall a great system.

    Cons

    Some more integrations would be good. Especially with CRM systems. The marketing functionality is somewhat limited. There is an integration with MailChimp which is good.

    That sums it up. We are searching for a new software as we have not been "happy" with the several we have used so far.

    Pros

    The product works well and there are no issues in it performance. It is great at adding jobs as the name implies. It is able to run searches well and seems to be well organized. It is a fair value for what the software does. We would love the software if there were not shortcomings but you get those with any software.

    Cons

    Our first choice would be to be able to house the software on site but it is cloud based only. Additionally, we need to see all the employees of a company on the screen without doing extra searches. Also, we use datacodes and so we can avoid contacting candidates that list every technology under the sun, whether they had it in college or just played with it in there free time.

    Cons

    The reports are not the best so that could be an issue for some companies who track/follow up on a lot of metrics.

    Cons

    Not sure how exactly works with Employment Hero (our HR platform) as it looks like is not linking properly. Nothing that can't be fixed by their Customer Service department I guess.

    I like to be able to see things easily i don't need all the fancy bells and whistles - i like to be able to search for candidates by skills , link clients, candidates into jobs, and be able to see open jobs easily. I liked the format of the old fastrack - they have now deleted and brought in a new system which is awful so had to change to job adder which is not as good as the old fasttrack

    Pros

    Linking jobs to candidates , clients to candidates linking. - it holds all the information that you require.

    Cons

    I dont find it straight forward a bit complicated. Finding applicants and seeing what jobs you have open and what stage those jobs are at is the main feature that recruiters look for in a program.
    I dont feel that job adder does that as good as the old fastrack system does - not the new version

    Excellent help function with online support and great 'how to' videos for self teaching. Easy to use and get your head around and I love the customization that is available in terms of workflow.

    Integration with a wider range of other systems would be good and also the ability to upload bulk contacts into the system.

    JobAdder is a good HR functional system. Have great visuals and the statistics to understand the information. But the navigation system is sloppy. Sometimes it's not easy to find info or go to a specific screen.

    Cons

    Navigating the information on this app is little hard. The navigation process can be simplified to find the information quickly.
