I think the program needs improvement in simplifying the startup process. I have used other programs such as PeopleSoft and found them much easier and more comprehensive.

Very little. Very complicated to work with and service is spotty.

Again, I think the program needs a lot of work and simplifying. I have used other programs such as PeopleSoft and found them much easier and more comprehensive. This is a very labor intensive system.

Recommendations

Define exactly what you need from your HRIS system, then look for programs that meet your needs. Don't judge by cost alone. You will most likely save on man hours with a system that costs a little more.

Online process of candidate application review. Ability to only review applications assigned to me.

If multiple people review the same applications there is no option to keep individual reviews answers.

Look for extra features. Like ability to tabulate answers by reviewer and assign scores.

I use Neogov when filling a position in my department. It enhanced the recruitment process tremendously. The online system made it easy to review the candidates and make immediate decisions as to their strengths. Overall, the product eliminated a lot of the time that I had previously spent when reviewing resumes.

Pros

As a department head, it was great to have a system that weeds out the unqualified or lesser qualified candidates before they get to me, so that I could focus on reviewing the best potential prospects. I liked that everything was electronic. I didn't have to print out cover letters and resumes and keep separate folders for each candidate.

Cons

The interface did not work well with our existing website. It is not a real attractive product.

Neogov has a very high learning curve. Once I became proficient - after about 6 to 9 months later - I found the application fairly easy to navigate. However, I learn additional functions regularly as I use it. I am an expert user now, but I have been using it for 5 1/2 years. Our section has 2 other recruiters who have been there for 2 years now. They continue to ask me user questions which I then walk them through. The application is not intuitive. A user needs to know exactly where to go to perform the function they need to perform. The tutorials need to be more detailed and clear as they leave users with questions after they have completed the tutorials.

Pros

Neogov is great once you learn how it works. I like that I can customize job announcements, add point values to questions, and add photos to job announcements. I like the auto-grader if the scoring plan is set up correctly.

I like the dashboard tasks section and that I am notified when a new requisition has been approved.

I like the candidate tracking in OHC since the new update. The visual of the candidate steps on the wheel is helpful.

Cons

The bold, italic and underline capabilities in the supplemental questions has been removed. Also, I can't change the color of the font in either the job posting or the supplemental questions.

Report titles don't really reflect what information the report pulls. I have to open all related reports to find the one I need to use to obtain the information I need.

Options under applicants are in a different order and named differently under applicants for various lists in Insight and OHC.

When entering a hire, with the last OHC update, a tab for approvers now exists. This is confusing for managers as they enter some random name. If the approval section was eliminated, it would be much better for managers and recruiters as recruiters would receive a notification once the hire has been entered and submitted.

User access on the OHC side is confusing for managers. The owner of the requisition is the only one who can upload final recruitment documents. Access for hiring managers as well as the owner would allow anyone who is either to perform necessary functions without have to have HR change the owner.

I have created job announcements with templates that have an incorrect scoring plan, so then the auto-grader doesn't work - it fails all applicants. Then its very time consuming to figure out where the issue is in the scoring plan.

Admin set up wasn't difficult, Dashboard is convenient, the exam plan set up and review of applications is easy. Navigating isn't difficult. The system comes with many reports and you can create your own as well.

Cons

implementation time is unrealistic, no integration with current HRIS, there are many limitations that need work arounds. After a search, if you hit back button, you have to type in the search again. Can be frustrating in ways.

NEOGOV customer service reps are easily accessible and very helpful. The software is easy to use and run reports to view or track applicants and employees.

Cons

A lot of manpower is needed up front to build/customize the platform. The process that this system uses is not simple, it should be easier for the end user to get through the tasks than it is. A system that is more costly may be a better fit if it is easier to use and less work for the managers up front to build out. The "look" of the site is tired and could use updating.

I love the concept of being able to complete performance reviews in a digital platform. The reviews are customization by individual, position, department, etc. and it is very easy for the reviewer to complete the custom form. Custom forms are easily built as well.

Cons

Does not sync with the HR Cloud component of the software; so my company has a platform (NeoGov) for just performance evaluations. Works best in internet explorer. Cumbersome for the end user.

Overall, it works fine and does most of what we need but posting a job can be cumbersome. It's not as straightforward as you would think. Also, copying a posting is not as easy as it could be to re-post the same job.

Pros

it's easy to view and look things up
has decent reporting capabilities

Cons

it's not straight forward in posting jobs
it takes a long time to copy an existing post

So this is purely a review from the hiring perspective. It is not too intuitive on how to get around in the main system but once you find your records, it is great, well organized, and provides sufficient data to make strong decisions. The tracking features to keep track of applicants are especially useful when dealing with high volumes of applications.
