TalentBin software


TalentBin by Monster is an online applicant sourcing and applicant tracking software that allows companies to create talent search platform and search passive candidates.

When a company signs up, recruiters send all employees a unique link to their TalentBin. Employees then connect their social profiles to the company’s TalentBin, which pulls all their contacts’ employment information and aggregates it into one database. Recruiters can search this database using the product’s guided search feature, narrowing down candidates by particular skills and locations.

TalentBin also helps recruiters organize the hiring process, allowing them to create pipelines for specific job requisitions and give hiring managers access to view candidate resumes. Additionally, recruiters can view all communication history with candidates, as well any notes they might have taken on each candidate’s individual profile.

Users are billed on per user per month basis and the support is offered via phone and email along with online knowledge repository.

    You have to just through hoops to get in there and search resumes which is irritating.

    This site used to be the biggest database for resumes but since they started upping the payment to use it the database sucks now.

    Pros

    I like that you have access to the database for resumes and you can post jobs really easily once you sign up.

    Cons

    I don't like the fact that you have to sign up and pay before you can try out the site. I don't like that they charge you for every single aspect on the site.

    Pros

    I like that I could easily filter my search results to show only jobs that I was interested in. The postings were easy to access and read.

    Cons

    I disliked the amount of ads and clutter that could be on a page. I also disliked the diversity of jobs in certain fields. Not very helpful for educators.

    I do not see a need for this website at all. The jobs are mostly fake and only there to make a company look good. I would not use this site to look for jobs online.

    Pros

    The website is laid out in a simple manner and easy to read. You change your options to see jobs any specific city, area code, or industry.

    Cons

    The site is full of ghost jobs that do not exist or have already been filled by another applicant. I have see jobs that I applied for only to be told that they are not open anymore. Then the next day, the same position appears on the site.

    This did not have any significant benefit over similar services, but we did find some strong candidates.

    Pros

    I found this service easy to use and manage candidates. It was a more cost effective option than some of the other services we had tried.

    Cons

    Overall, this was not the best fit for our business. We found just as much success using a lower cost service, and since we had a very limited budget, that was a deal breaker. They do not have any free listing option.

    Pros

    The system allows you to be as descriptive or vague as you want, and has a variety of options for attracting audiences. You can purchase additional search advertisement opportunities to be featured on social media, etc. You can also post internationally.

    Cons

    The system is pricey and the sales reps basically stop helping you after you sign the contract. Sifting through applicants can be cumbersome with the limited pre-screen abilities.

    I like that I can cater my search string to find specific individuals with niche skillets within a specific area or distance. You have many options to search, including how recent they updated their resume.

    Cons

    I find it difficult looking for out of area candidates that want to come to Florida. Also, It is difficult to search by city. Instead, you have to search by zip code which makes it more complicated and not easy to do.

    I dont have any Pros to say about this.. Monster.com is the worst recruitment tool that you could ever possibly want to have. The only applicants that i have received for my many job posts.

    Cons

    They dont have an up to date searching database - they dont advertise thier company and so there is no up to date traffic that they attract. They will blind you with promises of extra things to attract candidates that possibly would work but they dont have the traffic and so its a non starter no matter what they offer.

    Pros

    Very useful for entry level roles. Can use job posting to find the right type of profile. It also allows to find candidates according to the company/industry.

    Cons

    Could use more on the functionality part of sorting out resumes according to the years of experience.

    The cons for me is the applicants seem to be more higher end applicants. With my particular work fields in manufacturing these applicants are just too overly qualified for my positions.

    A good cost effective software for resume searching. Good brand recognition.

    Pros

    If you headhunt this is a great site for reaching out to passive candidates. Really exceeds exceptions in niche industries. Other sites scrub job postings from Monster which helps get the word out.

    Cons

    Overall the software is stuck in the middle. In my experience not as good for attracting candidates as indeed, not as good for networking as LinkedIn, not as good for searching resumes as Monster. Jack of all trades, master of none.

    Compared to other workforce search engines, we chose Monster to hire a temp for our department. Uploaded our position details was quick and easy and didn't make it difficult to post! We also loved that we are able to communicate with candidates through Monster instead of using our person emails!

    Cons

    Setting up the initial account for the business was very extensive (not saying that's a bad thing) but it took almost 2 hours to get registered before we could even post any openings!

    The product worked well, but we switched to a different company because it was just way too costly unless you are a power user and we felt that we could figure out a lower cost way to achieve our goals.

    Pros

    This is a viable software for businesses of all sizes and of different types.
    We used this service for technology and IT services. Some of the positives is that this software offers a variety of sourcing and screening capabilities. Such as candidate database, candidate matching, career page widget, custom application forms, custom branded website support, posting to external job sites, self-service career page, and social recruiting tools,, which is a plus. It also offers social media integration and job board integration, which was useful for us.

    Cons

    This web based applicant tracking and recruitment management solution offered services such as sourcing, screening, interviewing, and work-flow management, as well as custom reports. But it is very pricey per user. For us it cost you high. Unless you are a power user this is not worth the cost, at least it wasn't for us.

    I found it to be somewhat easy to complete a resume search as part of the package my company selected.

    Cons

    The price is far too expensive and we were unable to receive quality candidates when performing resume searches. In fact, we did not receive a single applicant from a resume search that was interested in pursuing a job change. It does not appear as though resumes are kept updated to those individuals actively seeking employment.

    We utilize Monster TMS every day to post jobs, prescreen resumes and track selection outcomes. The software is not easy to use and if you need some support it is always a struggle. I provide 1 star in Easy to use and 1 in Customer support . 2 stars for features and functionality, I would like to see some more relevant improvements (like the possibility to send massive email (more than 100+) with just a click. We also found the job posting interface very confusing and complicated. Overall we really wish they'll be able to become much more customer oriented as the product itself has good potential.

    Value for Money

    Monster TMS is a necessity for recruiters. I utilize it every day to search for candidates, post jobs, and review resumes. Monster has really gotten their brand out there and thus still remains relevant in the face of much competition. The site is easy to use and provides most of the functionality one could ask for. I provide 3 stars in Value for Money only because I feel Monster is very expensive and there are many lower cost options on the market. I also give 3 stars for features and functionality because I would like to see a few improvements. The job posting interface is very confusing and could really be simplified. I would like to also see some improvements in the "refresh" function. Monster logs you out of the site if you are inactive for too long but does provide a warning first asking if you would like to "refresh." This function does not always work and often I accept the refresh function only to notice after I fill in additional fields for either a search or a job posting, that I have been logged out and my changes were not accepted. Overall, the TMS is a great product and with a few improvements, could be the perfect tool for recruiters!

    Great support team. They can help you find resumes if needed and they do monitor your usage to practically reach out with support interventions.

    Data quality is off on some social feed based skills. most of the the time, highly rated skills on the site profiles are not necessarily true when I check the full social profile on LinkedIn.
