Workable software


Workable is a standalone applicant tracking system that helps users find and hire the right people. The program replaces email and spreadsheets with a simple way of advertising jobs, receiving applications, filtering them, setting up interviews and making great hires.

Workable is a Web-based system with an intuitive design so users do not need a consultant or hours on the phone to get started. They can get up and running within 15 minutes, and nothing needs to be installed. Since the hiring begins by spreading the word about the position, the program provides advanced job listing tools that publish one submission across a host of the most popular job boards from a single screen.

Once applications start rolling in, Workable allows users to keep track of possible hires and important data. With no data entry required, the system automatically compiles applicants' resumes and social media accounts and presents them in complete applicant profiles, including pictures to help users remember applicants in every stage of the hiring process. Email notifications are also sent whenever users receive new applicants, so users can see where each potential hire falls within the pipeline. From there, the process for browsing, screening and interviewing applicants is streamlined within one cohesive program.

Workable is suitable for a variety of industries and a wide range of company sizes. The system is completely cloud-based, Mac compatible and can accommodate a large number of users.  

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic)

    I would strongly recommend it is easy to share infromation about the progress with Managers and the Dashboard gives a really quick and useful overview of what is it going on.

    Pros

    It is exactly what you need for recruitment! I have tried many of them and this is the one I find more useful.
    Really easy to set up and integrate with Indeed Assessments, also good analytics feature where you can see which pages have been more effective, etc.

    Cons

    The cherry on the top would be for this to integrate with our other HR programs, such as Gusto and Zenefits.

    Like any job posting, this can be hit or miss if you are using the lowest priced version. It has been helpful in finding quality candidates

    Pros

    I love that the postings are automatically plugged into multiple sites. The interface is convenient in that you can see where it's being looked at and sign up for a more thorough posting through Workable at different sites if needed. The data collection and posting gathered from the site (resume, letters, etc.) is helpful and well organized.

    Cons

    Costs can add up when posting online. You have the Workable fee and the additional fees for other sites can be pricey. I do wish there was a discount of some sort.

    Pros

    Workable is extremely easy to use. The features built in are very self explanatory and the job boards are top notch.

    Cons

    Everything seems to be coming at a price now. Workable started off as one of the most truly affordable ATS systems. They have not always been the first ATS to the table when introducing new functionality, but they seem to do a good job with it. However, they have been taking away portions of the product that were initially available, which comes off as greedy. Customer service is incredibly inflexible at times, which is quite frustrating for a company that has been with them for so long.

    This software has helped us hire our international workforce without any major issues. We continue to find new integration tools that will help us achieve our hiring goals faste.

    Pros

    This software has allowed us to connect with multiple employees around the world. The tool allows you to keep control from the beginning of the application process up to the hiring stage, the connectivity with other apps is seamless. We've synced our hiring process with BambooHR and we are happy about it.

    Cons

    If a potential employee gets rejected once we have to delete the info before they can re-apply, this is a hassle as we can't store previous information or feedback from their first application.

    Pros

    Whatever advertisement you post, gets automatically posted in free job sites and you get more reach and this feature is available in both free and paid versions. The application is very cost effective. A clean and intuitive interface is provided. It is one of simplest applicant tracking system. The pipeline feature is very much customizable. You are provided with a people search google chrome extension which reduces time consumption. There is this on and off mode, as payment is concerned, you need to only pay for the time you use the application. The applicants can also apply via linked in. the application provides a lot of integrations including HRIS and other screening tools. The available email and interview templates help in simplifying the process and reduces the time lag. The interfaces are easy to use for both the users as well as the applicants. Very responsive customer service and support system.

    Cons

    The Application is a little pricey for small firms even though the features are well suited for startups.

    This is the perfect ATS and highly recommended as a great jumping off point into the world of recruiting and hiring software.

    Pros

    If you don't have any system in place to review and track applicants, Workable is a great program to get started. There's practically no learning curve and even the most computer illiterate people in my office have been able to pick up the program right away. It has a great design and user interface.

    Cons

    Workable is a great first step into recruiting and hiring software, but for a business looking for more advanced features and uses, I would not recommend Workable. It's not very customizable and can be limited in its scope.

    Having the process of recruitment from advertising to hiring so organized and easy was a life changer to a company like mine that has a big employee turnover once we work with Fixed Term contract and projects that are always changing.

    Pros

    This is the best solution I have ever seen to organize the OVERLOAD of CVs and job applications. It makes the process easier, from job posting to the pipeline of gathering the CVs and profiles all in one place, to send it to hiring screening team to interview and hired. Besides this it helps you with quite usefull tool like mass rejection, templates of leters that is intelligent and fill the gaps with the candidate information.

    Cons

    It's a bit scary and tricky at the begning, but it's quite intuitive and user friendly. I can't think in a super CON, probably only the fact of me not being that senior in using it I can afirm that takes a bit to get used to it.

    Quick hiring process, time saving, useful insights and tools, flexible, enhancing communication with full visibility of applicants. Better than alternatives since the job posting from different well-know websites. As a free of service, I was completely satisfied with the result that Workable contributed to my team.

    Pros

    First of all, for the startups who have really limited budget, Workable has a free plan, exactly what a startup needs. You can punlish up to 5 positions which is adequate for a small size company.

    Secondly, the integrarion with indeed.com and glassdoor is boosting the number of applicants and increase your visibility even if you are a small company has no budget for promoting jobs.

    As last, the employee acquisition funnel that they created is really helpful and communicating with your team member about different applicants helps and saves time a lot.

    Cons

    Even if I really like this tool there are some points that O did bot find user friensly in terms of interface and experience.

    The acquisition funnel should be easy and obvious in terms of interface. While passing between different profiles, sometimes you feel lost.

    Searching different profiles, you do not easily understand in what stage of specific person. Also, qualifying, rejecting options are sometimes leading to wromg actions due to the layout of buttons and interactions.

    Workable allows us to keep track of all of our job postings and all of the candidates who applies for a position at the company. We have them do assessments, upload their resume, submit links and much more. You can take your candidates through different steps like reviewing CV and phone screening. It has a nice clean and simple format.

    Cons

    They can improve on the visuals of the software, make it a bit more easy on the eyes or maybe allowing us to personalize the background a bit.

    Easy recruiting tracking. Integrates well with our company email to track all candidate communications. Customized Interview Guides and notes.

    Pros

    Very easy to create a job post, customize the application and create unique screening questions that are unique to our company and the job itself.

    Cons

    Wish there was better overall pipeline reporting at the lower tier membership level. We are a small team, with only a handful of job posts each year and can't justify the enterprise level package with robust reporting.

    - Great platform that has a robust feature set & integration options (i.e. LinkdIn) so that you can attract the right talent for your growing small business // startup

    Cons

    - You still have to go through the hiring process of creating the right listing, description, vetting candidates, etc., So while this is a great tool, you must still understand who you are looking for, why you are looking for them etc., in order to attract the right talent.
