Comments: Workable has got to be one of the most dependable hiring apps around. It is amazing for keeping track of things and having a neatly organized list of applicants. It allows you to have so much detail and control over the way you handle your own hiring process.

It's very simple and uncomplicated and I enjoy using it often.

Comments: I've used Workable on several different occasions and each time it did not disappoint me. It's a great way to find employees and to ensure they fit your criteria. The only downside is it tends to be more geared towards bigger companies, not the small guys. It's always quite expensive so I usually do a monthly membership and cancel once I found a new hire.

Pros: The clean interface and customization of your application

Cons: Too expensive and geared towards big businesses

Comments: Workable is a great tool for tracking and building out recruitment funnels. There are some irregularities, such as issues where LinkedIn profile duplicates are not recognized when uploading a candidate via a link. With a large team, this adds an extra step to every upload by needing to double-check the system for a candidate prior to making an upload.

Room for Improvement: Build out the Chrome extension to immediately recognize duplicates straight from the browser.

Pros: * Able to build out recruiting funnels/hiring process. * Wide variety of analytics to track recruiting KPIs. * Candidates can easily be tracked throughout the process. * Quickly pull up social media information.

Cons: * Gmail conversations do not always sync, which leaves you needing to use Workable. * Duplicates are not recognized by the system. * Social media information is not always accurate.

Recommendations to other buyers: 90% of recruiters make a hire through LinkedIn, but social media is becoming increasingly important for job seekers. I would tie in the ability to search social media profiles from the browser, and search for system duplicates from the browser.

Comments: I looked at nearly twenty systems to help us move away from paper job applications to online applications and applicant tracking. Workable stood out in the crowd. The interface is clean and straightforward, yet still very powerful. Our hiring manager jumped right in and started tagging, sorting, and emailing candidates with little assistance or training. It has all the functionality you'd expect out of an ATS and everything works as intended. The pricing is also the fairest I could find.

Comments: Best pros are that it makes your life easier and faster - very faster.

We are working with a 3rd party HR company and we are making things very quickly.

The only cons we have noticed is that as we have tons of applications, would be nice to have some automatic disqualifying questions - not just those with Yes or No but also those with multiple choice. Also if we have something like Lead Scoring for the candidate using the application form would be terrific :)

Comments: I use workable for multiple small startup teams. For many of the founders of these companies it's their first interaction with an ATS and the biggest benefit that workable has for me is the clarity of the UI means that most of the time a hiring manager can gain immediate benefit and just start using the tool.

Workable doesn't force it's users into a philosophy of hiring and instead guides towards a robust process. It has enabled many of the companies I work with every day to become better at hiring.

Comments: Working with Workable is great! The system is very intuitive and straight forward; it is easy to use, understand, customize, and looks neat and professional. Categories for candidates are well organized and it is easy to manage candidates who were not selected versus those we would like to see continue through the interviewing and hiring process. We have received many hits on our postings and have quality candidates applying for each position we post.

I love how un-cluttered Workable is. Workable has everything we need to successfully fill our positions, and has nothing that we don't need. Our company "careers" page looks very professional, modern, and we love that it can be used on its own as a link from our company page, or embedded via code into our page directly.

I also enjoy the fact that if we're not reaching a good audience using the standard free listings, we have the option for a small fee to make our job posting premier or sponsored on the site of our choice for greater visibility. Haven't had to use this yet though as we're happy with the candidates currently coming in.

It's really easy to add users, hiring managers, and external recruiters to Workable and assign job openings to them. We hire for a lot of different locations and it is great to have a manager 3000 miles away be able to manage their candidates on their own with ease.

Resume upload and parsing is great and helped us from the transition from an old job posting portal to Workable. I uploaded hundreds of resumes from active jobs we had open with the old system into the new posts we made with Workable, and the process took all of 10 minutes with no data entry involved on my end. All our candidates are saved and attached to their proper jobs, and nothing was lost in the transition.

Workable customer service is very prompt and polite, and always resolve our questions and inquiries quickly and with great advice and support. Workable shows that they value their customers and will work with us to train us in their system, help with setup and any issues we may encounter. To be honest we don't really have a lot of issues with Workable to begin with, but the few we had (getting them set up as a vendor because they are not based in the US and basics of learning ins and outs of the system) have been resolved to our expectations.

A+ service at an A+ value.

It helps me keep track of where everyone is in the process and its easy to see which roles I need to give a push due to the dashboard.

Looking forward to the mobile app

Comments: We initially signed up for the Workable free trial, but were so impressed we took on a package a few days in. There were features that sprung up immediately as game-changers for us : the ease with which it hoovers everything about a candidate into the platform, the team commentary and the ability to keep a candidate in mind for something more suitable later. In terms of the UI, very elegant, well-designed, everything is in the right place -- possibly a bit too muted in palette for my personal extravagant taste, but a joy to use overall. And for the real litmus test, customer service, hand on heart, BEST we've ever seen. We had trouble with entering something unusual (intra-EU VAT exemption) in an invoice and wrote to customer service for help, and within an hour we had a very polite and constructive live-support chat, and within two we had programmers working to hard code something for us. Highly recommended .

Super simple and useful!

Comments: We just started using Workable on a suggestion of a good friend who runs an HR software company and has "seen it all." The reason I asked his advice is we were starting the hiring process for a number of new positions and was hoping to find a better way of managing the incoming applications. Last time we did a key hire, we got more than 100 applicants in two weeks. With our old process, it was overwhelming and unmanageable. So, we decided to try Workable.

In just one week of use, I can say already that Workable is the right solution for us. We¿ve already received dozens of quality applicants. More importantly (and the reason we are trying it), we¿re finding the process of managing the applications much easier and much more effective. Compared to the old way (manually keeping track in Excel and file folders), it¿s night and day.

We're a very happy new Workable customer.

Perfect for our needs to attract top talent and pre-qualify applicants.

Comments: We use Workable to set that tone that we're a forward-thinking and professional organization and place to work.

We'd searched for a while to find the right system to help us with our hiring process. We were looking for: (1) easy to use, (2) sophisticated and customizable, (3) something that made sense for a small business, (4) a centralized location to manage our hiring process, and (5) had a no-hassle trial.

Workable delivered on all of those, and has also increased our pool of qualified applicants through their free integration with several job sites. As we used Workable we also recognized its powerful potential to help us pre-qualify applicants -- a total bonus that we hadn't thought of yet.

New to workable, but it ticks all the boxes.

Comments: Choosing an ATS system is tough, there are many options out there and many shapes and sizes at varying costs. After trialling a lot of different systems, Workable came out on top by a good distance for our SME. We currently have 35 employees and I can see workable helping us well into the 100s of employees as we grow.

There are some great features, the UI is very intuitive and it was very easy for me and the team to learn. Most importantly, it isn't overloaded with too many features when all I need is a good understanding of my pipeline. There are some some feature updates I'm hoping for but the team seem very receptive to improving the product, something the dinosaur ATS systems don't seem as enthusiastic about.

All in all, I'm very pleased and hope that we continue to have the same success with Workable.

Comments: I am in love with Workable. I was using another applicant tracking software until recently when our already small company downsized tremendously, which drove us to find more cost effective ways to get things done. The other software was fine but quite costly. There were many bells and whistles and they too had the customer service piece. But, now that I am with Workable I have no idea how we ended up with the other software. Workable is straight to the point and it's not breaking the bank. On top of that I received more application through Workable in five days than I had with the other software in three months. And the customer service is top notch. So with that said I am very happy that I am now using Workable.

Comments: Before Workable, our applications were all scattered in Gmail. It was difficult for internal collaborators to understand which applicants were favored, and it was time consuming to organize the applicants material (resume, cover letter, questionnaire, thank you notes, etc.). Workable has truly saved our team SO much time and headache in working together on the hiring process. Everything is organized and easy to find in Workable, and collaborators are able to make notes on applicant's profiles for colleagues to see. I LOVE this system so far.

The ability to track applicants and comment on them or read comments from team-mates is great and saves tons of time from dealing with emails and excel files.

The software is very easy to use, but if you have any question or issue their support service is fast, kind and friendly.

Comments: Overall, Workable is a great applicant tracking system (ATS). When my team was using a different ATS, every hiring manager began the meeting by telling me how much they hated that ATS. Once we switched to Workable, everything just worked the way it was supposed to. The hiring managers enjoyed using it too.

Some of my favorite parts of it are:
- it is very easy to set up
- the UX is very clean and easy to use
- the customer service is excellent - I always got speedy responses to any questions I asked!
- the integrations with free/paid job boards is great, they offer a lot of options
- they're constantly making improvements and adding new features
- the 15 day trial is a great way to play around with it and see how easy it is to set up
- the Chrome extension that allows you to import profiles into Workable

Some small but standard features that I think it's missing are:
- the ability to delay emails (i.e. if you're rejecting a candidate, have the email send in 1 or 2 days instead of immediately)
- the ability to customize job pipelines for each role (you can customize it for the entire company, though!)

We are switching to another ATS because we want more out of our ATS (offer letter integration, interview feedback, etc). However, Workable is a great tool! I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to start using an ATS to organize their hiring, or anyone who is unhappy with their ATS and wants something basic but very solid. The ability to pay monthly without a contract is also appealing - you can try it out and then switch if you don't like it.

Comments: It's simply a wonderful product and service.

The Workable dream has been sold to many internal recruitment consultants (rightfully so), but it's just as helpful to agency recruiters like myself.

- Prevents candidate ownership issues in a far better way than most submission portals.
- Easy access - no time wasted in providing information about the candidate.
- Clear and open communication between agency recruiter, internal recruiter, and hiring manager. The perfect relationship maintainer.
- Makes the process less transactional.
- Not full of automated rubbish like other portals.
- I've had NO functionality issues.

Basically, I'm a big fan :)

Comments: Workable has been a great time-saver for us.

As a young, fast-growing company we have limited resources and thus the time that Workable has saved us by not having to go searching for emails, resume PDFs and spreadsheet lists has made a difference in our hiring.

Pros:
- intuitive design (no need to check knowledge base, FAQ) because "it just works"
- active development (we keep getting mails with useful new features such as "send resume via email")

Cons:
- it kind of makes you feel stupid for not using it earlier :)
