We are a 1,200 person company with many global offices. Newton was a perfect fit for our needs.

Recruiters now have more time to seek optimal candidates as they need less time in the platform to post jobs, schedule interviews, interact with hiring managers, etc. Newton does a great job in blasting out our job postings to the various job boards and tracks where our leads are coming from. Our job seekers have a much easier time with applying for jobs and since our business hires at over 40 locations internationally, having a simple job application process is key for getting applicants who do not speak English as a first language. The job listing integrates seamlessly into our company web site. All good!

Pros

Our previous job posting and applicant tracking system was quite old and the user experience for both recruiters and applicants was far from ideal. Newton greatly simplified the job posting process by integrating with Outlook for interview scheduling, allowing mobile feedback from hiring managers (so that they did not need to enter the platform if they did not want to), and having dashboards which quickly showed status of jobs for the recruiters. The application process for job seekers was fast and easy, resulting in our receiving far more applicants per job than the previous tool. Overall, Newton was a perfect fit for our needs as it allowed our recruiters to focus more on seeking candidates (since entering jobs was much easier) and we are getting more/better candidates given the expanded reach and ease of use that Newton provides our job seekers.

Cons

The main thing that we did not like was that the analytics dashboards and tracking were all Flash-based, but that was updated in the most recent platform update, so now our recruiters do not have to worry about Flash plug-in issues. Otherwise, we are quite happy with Newton.

Great ATS gone silent

I absolutely LOVED Newton. I was introduced to Newton in 2016 at one company and loved it so much, I selected it for implementation at another company in 2018. The selection, evaluation and onboarding process was nearly flawless for a company that size and at the time, that new to an ATS. That company still uses Newton today. However, I hear that their calendar of improvements and upgrades have declined dramatically. However, when I went out on my own, of course, my logical choice was Newton! I contacted them four separate times with not one call/text/email back. Such a shame to see a great company ignore one of it's greatest fans. They have recently been purchased by Paycor as a part of a bigger group of solutions. I hope they get back on track with their roots of excellent customer service and forward-thinking product development.

Pros

Ease of use for "non-recruiters" (end users) Templates Ease of application for candidates Clear and readable dashboard for all users

Cons

At the time I was using Newton- there were no issues. Their CRM was non-existent (maybe in play now), but we were told that texting and a more robust CRM were in play. Now- Unresponsive to an avid fan- never called me back!

Reasons for Choosing Newton Applicant Tracking

Quality and ease of use Price Contract flexibility- month to month.

For the money Newton is far and away the best ATS!

I moved on to a new company that doesn't use Newton ATS and I miss it :(

Pros

When I started using Newton my company had not previously used any ATS. Newton's team (in coordination with Paycor) worked with my marketing department to implement the ATS quickly and without any hiccups. My life as an HR professional was immediately improved (at least the recruiting function :)) Newton's reps are personable and really do their best to understand your business so they can be of the best service to you.

Cons

None really. The are on the westcoast so if you're in a different timezone you'll have to wait for them to get back to you if you have a question. Not to worry however, they're always quick to contact you back and most answers can be found in the help section on their site.

A very inexpensive ATS system

If you hire not a frequent basis this software would be great, but if you hire more than 5 candidates a month I would pick something else.

Pros

Newton is great for companies that are very small and have a very simple hiring process. The cost of Newton is very inexpensive for smaller companies. They do webinar every single week you can sign up for to teach new admin.

Cons

I dislike most everything about this software. There is no sourcing tool that is available. They do have a lot of feature updates, but you do have to code it in yourself. We have had Newton for a couple of years and not once has a Newton rep reached out to us about new features or continuing our contract. You can't switch a candidate and put them in a different job, you have to create a candidate instead of moving their whole profile. The candidate duplication is horrible, people can use a different email and get pass the detection 100% of the time. Being able to integrate our HRIS system (ADP) doesn't save us time at all we still have to fill our most of the new candidate drop down boxes. You can't text a candidate or email a candidate without your developers doing the coding for it.

Easy, User Friendly Applicant Tracking

Overall, this is the best system that I've used by far.

Pros

This is a user friendly tracking system. It is easy to train and be trained on. I've used several and none are as easy as Newton.

Cons

There have been a few times that it has gone down and it wasn't a quick fix.
