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.

Newton Applicant Tracking System has it all

Newton is feature rich. After six months of using the product, I've still only scratched the surface of what it can do.

Pros

The program allows the user to create a job posting from scratch or to modify existing ones. There are numerous templates for job posts or emails that can be used out of the box or can be modified and personalized. Newton has agreements with Indeed, LinkedIn and Glassdoor and job postings can be automatically posted to these sites for free. It also allows for posting directly to the company's employment web site as well as the company's Facebook page. The system allows the poster to create knock-out questions so that interested applicants who don't meet minimum qualifications are automatically excluded and the receive a message instantly why they are not eligible. Another vital function is that, once an applicant shows interest, they can be followed in the system every step along the way. You can track them through phone interviews, face to face interviews, email correspondence, and hire, involving other employees who may need to be involved along the way. One final key point is that, if the company is a customer of Paycor Payroll and HR systems, Newton interacts with those seamlessly and a prospect who is hired in Newton will automatically be transferred to Paycor with all of their information.

Cons

While the system is rich in features, the menus are not intuitive. There can be multiple menus on a page and it can be difficult to navigate to a feature you are looking for. I find myself spending a significant amount of time in the 'Help' section.

Newton Fan Forever

I love Newton and am in the process of proposing that we bring it to my new employer (which has never had an ATS and desperately needs one).

Pros

Newton is very user friendly and flexible enough for people who are not tech savvy. As a recruiter working with multiple project managers, I loved working with a system that allowed me to seamlessly move through workflows independently or alongside hiring managers. Newton is always updating its features and thinking about new things to add to the platform. I also love that it works well with your organization's career page, and may also sync with an HRIS. The Gravity App was great feature to use as well at my former organization (lots of fun-loving, competitive staff).

Cons

I didn't experience many challenges with Newton. Occasionally, emails we sent from Newton wouldn't reach candidates (they would end up in spam). To troubleshoot, we just sent things directly from Outlook. We alerted Newton and the problem was fixed pretty quickly.

Built for recruiters by recruiters BUT since Paycor bought them progress has slowed

For our third party staffing agency this is our core operating system for job requisition and candidate activity. Simple intuitive user interface make for ease of doing business.

Pros

It’s easiest to use ATS system out there and I looked at a bunch. New users in my company didn’t even need to go to the free training session because it’s so intuitive. Simple process flow from left to right and green light to advance the candidate a red light to disposition them. Dashboard and report analytics are easy.

Cons

Since Paycor bought Newton the pace of product development has slowed. Sad to see the entrepreneurial spirit of the company extinguished by big company bureaucracy. Falling behind on functionality like SMS integration. Cost becoming prohibitive for SMBs and larger enterprises need more robust solutions like iCims.

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.

Excellent applicant tracking solution

Managing hundreds/thousands of job seekers is simplified with Newton. All applicants filter through to one space, and can be seamlessly moved through the next steps with custom email templates, background screen capability (compatible when paired with Sterling). Also can use the unique tracking links to track which job ad sources (ie Facebook, Indeed) are yielding the best results.

Pros

The centralization of all job seekers to one landing place and ease of moving candidates through the hiring process. Unique custom tracking links are a great feature to track analytics.

Cons

I haven't been exposed to any poor experiences using the software

One of the best ATS systems on the market

Time savings, efficiency, better applicant experience, the list goes on and on. All, for a very reasonable fee.

Pros

When we first implemented Newton the user adoption was amazing. The interface is so user friendly that hiring managers were able to begin using the system within minutes.

Cons

There is very little that I do not like about the Newton system. One of the only shortcomings, which is already being addressed, is integration with other systems; background providers, HRIS systems, etc.

The best with a software and service provider.

Accurate, efficient recruiting , hiring, and onboarding of new employee for a very reasonable cost. Particularly important for smaller employers.

Pros

This is the easiest software product I have every used or seen for applicant tracking, reporting, etc. Service is punctualy, courteous, and accurate.

Cons

Two-click sign off? (such a minor thing). I can't think of anything negative about the product, service, cost of use. They always seem to be anticipating, and leading customer/client needs.

Used Newton for 3 years, easy to use helps me manage our applicant flow and candidate progress

confidence that compliance is taken care of, never lose a canddiate's file, easy to post jobs on external sites.

Pros

I like the Visibility of candidates that are in progress on a job. I can easily see how many candidates we have for a position, who has been reviewed/phone interviewed or interviewed. Also the reports make pulling AAP reports easy as long as you keep on top of dispositioning candidates as you review them. Also I can easily share resumes with the hiring managers.

Cons

Would be nice to be able to download an open jobs report with candidates in progress so I can use it for other reports.

Simple, Sleek, User Friendly

Pros

Platform is easy to navigate and engaging. Posting open positions, editing, reviewing candidates -all the things that usually take up a lot of time are simplified and enjoyable with Newton. After doing high volume recruiting for 3 years without an applicant tracking system, Newton was a dream and a continues to be years later!

Cons

Every now and then emails to candidates would randomly get dropped/not get delivered. Happened pretty infrequently . Customer Service is on west coast time so occasionaly there is a wait time on questions asked via email.
