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.

Excellent Recruiting Software

Pros

Love how you can build a talent pool. So many of my clients require specialized skills and the talent pool helps us sort so we can quickly get what we want.

Cons

I cannot think of anything I do not like. Lots of pros. I love how you can evaluate each candidate.

One of the best ATS for small and medium sized companies

The product was of great help while we were rapidly expanding without a structure to our hiring. Workable allowed us to customize the job flow as we required

Pros

The tool has been a great asset for your organization. it allows us to pick and customize the modules that we want to use and expand as we need. We also love the attention to detail and their understanding of the recruitment process. Features like easy sharing of profiles with hiring managers, candidate feedback and tracking have been built with great care and thought. Its made our recruiters work a lot easier

Cons

The software has certain drawbacks when implemented at a large scale. The ATS might not be the easiest to scale and minor bugs can be found occasionally.

Workable is growing

I review many of the employment applications that come through our HR department and occasionally see that the referral came from Workable. I hope we receive many more in the future.

Pros

Workable occasionally sends us job applicants for the position of Caregiver.

Cons

Not enough referrals. This is probably not the fault of Workable because their name does not have as much recognition as some of their competitors in our industry. Hopefully they will continue to grow and send us more applicants in the future.

Workable is ok

Pros

I am a former ADP eV5 user and while Workable is better, it could still use some work. The interface is nice and seems like it’s easy to find your way around but not as intuitive as I would like.

Cons

Could be more intuitive and is kind of a pain to intergrate with.

My experience with Workable

We hope to have in the future the translation of the page

Pros

We tried the trial version, we thought the interface was very easy to use, it is important that wokable recognize the postal codes of several countries, I really liked its fusion with LinkedIn

Cons

We believe that the application has a promising future, but for our Latin American market it would be very important that the page could be read in Spanish.

Very good Value for Money

the System is very good and affordable for small and medium and maybe some large companies, it will make life easier for recruiters and fasten the process, but if you need more Analysis, reports and also if you have complex requirements for hiring process & stages it will aim for other ATS the System features is developing which is something exciting.

Pros

1- Reasonable price compared to other ATS
2- Easy to use Software that doesn't need much training and easy navigation around the System.
3- availability of trial period which is not the case with other ATS
4- automate the publishing of job vacancies on free and premium sites as well
5- customizable pipeline.
6- Chrome browser extinsion which I didn't see in most ATS.
7- Auto screening process based on the criteria defined for the Job.
8- Interview Management, from Calendaring to scoring and Qualifying the candidate
9- easy integration through APIs with other systems for on boarding and HRMS enrollment

Cons

1- job stages not customizable per job title so all jobs will follow same stages
2- Reporting isn't very good as customization is limited.
3- Candidate Rating needs enhancement, it cannot be only about thumbs up or down

Job board section is top notch though pricey for small companies.

Pros

Pretty simple to use. A lot of the features built in are easy to understand and self explanatory. Job boards are as good as I've seen.

Cons

I used this when I worked for a very small company. This product is extremely pricey for the smaller companies in my opinion. That's comparing with several others in the same vertical.

Has come a long way!

Pros

We used Workable a while back and moved away to a different software. We’re now back to it as it’s made a ton of UI improvements. It’s intuitive, easy to use and offers a plan/price for all budgets.

Cons

It could still make some improvements on the scheduling tool. Other than that, it’s a pretty good ATS.

Trial Package

Pros

1. The website is pretty neat and simple to navigate. They have free resume look up at least 5 views for the trial package.

Cons

1. Although they offer a trial package for job posting, there is a lot of verification process you have to go through in order for your jobs to gwt posted.

2. I understand that this is a trial package, but it should not be so hard to do a job posting just because you are unable to go through 3 step verification they have.

Postings outside of NY Area are a challenge

We like the platform setting. However, we are not happy with the amount of candidates that we receive outside of NY.

Pros

The platform set up is easy to work with

Cons

Not all postings return a lot of candidates. It has been disappointing.

Review by Dev-Pro.net

Overall positive. But need more customizations.

Pros

Customizable pipeline, Timeline, Access levels, Interview Scorecards, reporting

Cons

Would really like it to be more customizable. Jobs need to be edited not only for external use. Would be really cool to create kind of a Trello board feature to prioritize vacancies within Recruitment team. Would be great to edit Subjects of messages. Would be great to hide interviewer names from Interview events in the calendar.
