My experience working with Scout from initial set up to daily use has been very positive.

Ease of use, timely communication with applicants, SMS functionality, significantly lower need for printing, better and faster responses from interview panel members as they can do a lot of the preparation remotely. Huge reduction in admin. One stop repository for record keeping.

Pros

I have been working with Scout for several years now. At my former Council I was involved in the initial purchase, set up and implementation and I have to say it proved to be a huge asset for us when working through the heavy administration that a merger brings. Since moving to Richmond Valley Council as their Human Resources Coordinator, I have been able to train up staff quickly due to the system being so user friendly and the support almost instant. It has assisted greatly in moving from a paper based recruitment system to an almost paperless one. As a contemporary organisation focused on utilising technology to its full potential, we particularly like the SMS function and the ease of which jobs can be posted to external sites. Jobs are easy to clone which cuts down greatly on admin time and new jobs are easy to set up. Customer service agents are real asset. They are knowledgeable, friendly and remains very calm in all situations - a quality much appreciated! He has recommended valuable improvements and responded to feedback. I have used Alex for face to face training and can highly recommend him.

Cons

The entity structure although we are working closely with Scout to improve the set up. Visibility of template when sending event invites could also be an improvement.

Recruitment Revolution for Gympie Regional Council

SCOUT has revolutionised the way we handle recruitment at Gympie Regional Council. All information about a job or candidate, including Authorities to Recruit, can be handled or stored in the one system. Being cloud based means it is easily accessed off-site, and I am finding that my line managers across Council, including depot Managers are using it regularly and using it well. It has a clean and easy to look at interface, and it is extremely intuitive. I love it!

Pros

I like the fact that every piece of documentation regarding a candidate or a job can be stored in the system. This mitigates risk for Council from an adverse action perspective. I also like the ease of use, and the intuitive way the program operates.

Cons

I'd like to see some way of better managing a Talent Pool candidate list. Also, currently there is now way to directly link and Approval form to a job ad without saving it outside SCOUT and then attaching the form to the job ad as an attachment. This process is Ok as a work-around, but with all the intuitive functions of SCOUT, I would have though this could easily be achieved.

Easy and Intuitive

Pros

The use of the Scout Talent system is a large part of my job and I enjoy getting to work with it everyday.

I find the system easy to navigate and make good use of features like emailing, sms, candidate statuses and ranking.

Cons

We gain massive benefit from our SMS feature but at the feature doesn't currently allow candidates to respond to our messages using SMS.

Makes managing candidates a breeze.

Without SCOUT, I wouldn't be able to manage our candidates - simple as that.

Pros

Simple interface, really effective reporting system which is great for exporting candidates. Fantastic support.

Cons

Increased email marketing functionality would be fantastic. To be able to build talent pools and then place them on simple, automated long term nurture journeys could make a real difference.

Great Recruitment Software

Scout Talent is an excellent recruitment management system. We use Scout as an online recruitment services provider to support our clients with their recruitment and also to streamline our own internal recruitment process. Managing candidates across various positions with Scout is made so much more effective and efficient and overall saves us hours of time !

I have used other recruitment software and Scout has been the easiest to pick up. The support team get back to you and nothings too hard. Managers have not had a problem using Scout and makes the recruitment process a lot easier.

Pros

The ease of it. Straightforward.

These guys are amazing!

We have recently switched our recruitment software providers so we are very fresh in using SCOUT. So far, we have been blown away by the easy and intuitive functions this cloud based system offers. The team behind the scenes are incredibly helpful as well as patient as a) I have been asking some pretty tedious questions regarding the system and just trying to get my head around all the new jargon and b) getting to the 'go live' stage ended up taking a bit of extra unanticipated time (things at our end, not SCOUT) but they remained so patient and understanding throughout this which made things so much easier to work with.

Pros

The support team, they really are great. Any questions or queries we have and email through, they are respond so quick and prompt it really builds that trust and reliability that you need with your system provider.

Cons

Not too sure yet...haven't spent enough time on the system (been a few days)

Great learning experience with an ATS and the support staff are excellent

Pros

The interview calendaring feature on the software is fantastic. From the recruiters point of view it saves a lot of admin time and from the interviewees point of view they enjoyed being able to pick an interview time that suited them.

Cons

It would be great if the software could be expanded to include video interviews and APIs to plug into other systems.

SCOUT is effective and a time saving tool to recruit!

Pros

Using one tool for all of our recruiting needs saves time and money. It takes less than fifteen minutes to create a job and have it published and all of your applicants are easily saved in one place for each job and makes record keeping a breeze!

Cons

I really have little complaints, we have ran into things we need SCOUT to do and called our representative, and within no time, SCOUT either creates something for us or has a solution already in place. Amazing Service.

Easy system, great support and happy budget.

Pros

The system is really user friendly. The experience for applicants is very straight forward. We have noticed an increase in applicants and a reduced the number of system enquiries. Additionally, the support staff were patient and accommodating. I found them trustworthy and genuine which helped us make the move from our old system.

Cons

There aren't really any "cons". If we were picky, the only things we notice are that the panel shortlisting scores are visible prior to completion which could impact independence and when making a comment it is not clear who made the comments. Small things.

Scout Recruitment Product

Scout is a terrific program to use and the customer service team make the process so easy. We have used Scout for our recruitment services for the past 3 years and have received terrific feedback regarding the system from external applicants as well as the internal users. The system is easy to use, it can be adapted and modified to suit our recruitment process and there have been regular updates and new products/add-ons made available that have improved our experience with the product. The customer service team have always been terrific to deal with. They are all friendly and helpful, assisting with any errors that we have experienced in a timely manner and going over and above to ensure they can help to identify a solution so the product can meet our needs. Overall we have been extremely pleased with both the quality of the product and the customer service that we receive as customers of Scout.
