Comments: I love the customization of my companies page and the innovative and unique setup for all the brands under our umbrella

Pros: This product is extremely easy to use and it does so much! It understands recruiting and on-boarding and it is likely to become our main source for sourcing.

Cons: Although this product is very satisfying, during the first month or couple of weeks it would be nice if there were more customer service reps or account managers to answer quick questions. An online chat for questions would be helpful as well.

Pros: I think this product is very helpful because it helps you manage all of your applicants as well as send updates throughout the hiring process. It keeps everything organized in one place!

Cons: I think it could improve it's system for contacting them in the APP instead of on your personal email lumped together with all the applicants

Cons: Unfortunately platform doesn't integrate with Paychex. This would make payroll & HR functions a lot easier.

Pros: Seamless transition from ATS to Onboarding Forms auto-populate Unlimited number of forms and administrators Super easy to build, customize and edit forms in the system Easy to allow certain people with certain admissions Very attractive interface Quick Set Up

Cons: No real cons. Of course we want the software to do anything that our imaginations can come up with. It would be nice to be able to send out multiple notifications about an overdue form, as well as notifications to specific people when a specific form has been completed.

Pros: Product is very user friendly & welcoming to the eyes. There have been a few enhancements that have improved the functionality of the platform quite a bit. Although an applicant may apply several times throughout the year it groups everything together. Customer service is super!

Cons: When an applicant completes an application one time, if they aren't selected & come back a year later & try to apply their original application is still in the system & can't be updated.

After rep went over everything I feel much more confident in using the software.

Comments: So glad I paid the small fee to use this service. Others I know have been paying thousands to hire and CareerPlug was so easy and comprehensive. It allowed me to filter through applicants using the test results, response times to emails or no response at all, and generally how their resumes and applications were laid out. With that, I could send rejection emails without spending too much time on each one. Will be using CareerPlug for my next hires for sure! Thanks for having this service available! James

Pros: Easy to use. Testing was very informative. Benchmarking team to compare to applicants was a must. Prefilled emails for each stage. Recommendations from time to time were helpful. Provided tailored interview questions for phone and in person, including a scoring system. Low cost.

Cons: Small system glitch in which I was not able to send emails directly from CareerPlug and was forced to send from my Outlook. This was fixed within a short period of time.

Easy to use and streamlined hiring process.

Pros: Being able to easily track applicant communication, easy to learn and use. Saves us money since we pay one annual fee instead of paying per job posting each month. Customer support is very responsive and helpful.

Cons: Not as visually appealing as some of the other applicant tracking systems I've used, but they are constantly making updates so I am confident this will improve over time. Not really a huge issue since we are saving money and it still gets the job done as far as applicant tracking goes.

Pros: The Software offers features for sorting and assessing applicants which are fantastic. Surprisingly, it allows us to craft ads and post them from within Carrerplug.The support team who we have dealt with has been absolutely Fantastic! Patient, Helpful and sincere. Great Asset! The cost is a terrific value for what is included. We got the HR and onboarding package. This makes our work so much easier and having all these documents in one place rather than emailing back and forth to applicants/hires is helpful.

Cons: Although it has a TON of features the UI, I feel, could be more intuitive. Make buttons for functions not just small text links placed in less than intuitive places. Software should allow for objectives (reviewing applicants, changing text etc) in a simplified way. Too much clicking around to learn. By redesigning this should lessen the contact with your (great) customer service team.

Comments: Like many of us that are Owners and/or Directors of My Gym Children's Fitness Center, one of the priorities in this business is to provide a top-notch quality program and the utmost care for the children and families. In order to achieve this and more, we all need staff with the potential to become outstanding My Gym Teachers. For me, there was no place better to find this than through CareerPlug! I was very pleased to participate in testing the applicant software for CareerPlug. It's very intuitive, easy to use, and reaches more credible job seekers than other sites and sifting through emails of career inquiries. There is a great balance between ease of use and features finding the most qualified candidates via the Personality Assessments that makes the hiring process effective and completed immediately. Their unparalleled support addressed issues (if any) quickly and assisted with customizing new job ads perfect for the gym. Cutting down on the time spent filtering through each applicant has been one of the most important features for me. We are all very busy teaching classes and running a business. Not only has CareerPlug met that expectation, but also has excellent service with an easy to learn, quality system. I highly recommend using CareerPlug to recruit the best candidates that will exemplify who we are as a company and in turn, be an amazing My Gym teacher!

Pros: CareerPlug keeps things in a centralized location with the Personality Assessment Scores, Applicant Profiles, Resumes, and Pre-screen Scores all on the same page!

Cons: A feature I would like to see modified is to make the email responses from the hiring manager to the applicant via the applicant profile page. We see the responses from the applicant, but it would be nice to reply immediately through their profile.

Comments: CareerPlug offers Firehouse Restaurant Group an easy to use recruiting and applicant tracking system. The built-in templates (e.g., messages, ratings, assessments, rating) ensure consistency of use by our hiring managers. The hiring workflow makes it easy for first time hiring managers and experienced managers to know at what stage is each applicant and what actions need to be taken. We have received positive feedback from candidates and new employees who have gone through our hiring process with CareerPlug. They are very impressed with the computer and mobile interface and the ease of use.

Comments: Not too many software/apps out there are as straightforward and easy to use (at least for my simple needs) as CareerPlug. I was able to organize all of my candidate interactions with ease and thus accomplished my goal of hiring someone. Thus, the whole process of setup and ongoing functionality was refreshingly efficient and did not interfere with my daily business operations.

Pros: Easy to understand and use.

Cons: none

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try as it makes sense to use, for different reasons, to find a candidate for your business needs.

Comments: I started using Career Plug as my ATS having used spreadsheets for many years. The product is great at automatically posting to the free sites and creating HTML to post on other niche sites that we are members of. There have been some issues (to expect with any company) with postings and paperwork through Onboarding with Career Plug, but their support team has always been responsive and gotten everything worked out.

Pros: Ease of posting and scheduling interviews and processing backgrounds. Awesome support team.

Cons: I would like the user interface to be a little more customizable to our needs.

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely give Career Plug a try. No crazy contracts, upfront fees or any of the unnecessary bloat that comes with other ATS out on the market.

Comments: I am using Career Plug for the first time as a hiring tool. It has significantly improved the overall process for hiring! The process is streamlined and has everything I have needed to hire!

Pros: I appreciate the assessments included at the beginning to help us narrow down our candidate pool. The postings they have done has created more interest in our position than previous methods I have used. I also really like the questions prepared for each step in the process and the email prepared at the push of a button to take the applicant to the next step. Great system!

Comments: I would first like to say how much CareerPlug has made a difference in the number of applicants we have received since we have begun utilizing them in July 2016. For the price point they offer, it is one of the best values for the money that is out there right now.

Pros: - I love the way the applicants are listed by location and job description. - Daily Applicant summary notifications are clear and concise. - Ability to screen applicants on initial application. This saves time interviewing candidates who are not qualified. - Ability to add multiple users to the account with no additional charge. - Customer service is very prompt in responding to your issues.

Cons: - Reporting features are not very customize able. - They only post to 8 free job boards. - Sometimes screens don't automatically refresh after status updates. Whether this is an internet issue or server issue remains to be seen.

Recommendations to other buyers: - Be prepared to put about 10-15 hours total work into getting it built initially.

Comments: WOW! Awesome product - love it. So easy to use. We have had no glitches or problems with the program. It does everything they said it did and more! My end users love it too - has improved efficiency in hiring, improved communication with hiring managers and the candidates and let us go paperless! Made our lives in so much easier!

Pros: Ease of use. Fantastic A+ Service Team who respond so quickly and are so friendly. System is seamless, intuitive for both the company and the candidate. Allows the hiring process to be paperless. Electronic scheduling of candidates is probably my favorite component. Can use the system from anywhere. Mobile friendly. Assessment options are great. Good email template options to respond to all candidates.

Cons: The only thing that I don't like is that I did not buy the product sooner!

Recommendations to other buyers: We have 300 employees and get about 5,000 or more applications over a year period. So easy to track, search, etc. I referred to a friend with 1800 employees with multiple locations and they love it too. There are no surprises in the buying process and no hidden fees.

Comments: Career Plug is a relatively good recruiting tool. The problem I have with it is that it does not do a great job of finding a name in a search but this is better. For instance, if you look for John Green, it will find every person with John in the name in the system and every person with Green in the first or last name. There are no really good reports.

Pros: Can do many jobs at the same time. Easy to add new jobs, deactivate them and change them.

Cons: Lack of reports and trouble finding a candidate.

Recommendations to other buyers: Reasonably priced, easy to add new jobs and change those jobs, good when you have many jobs to source.

Cons: They recently had a server issue with out the proper back-ups. The server crashed and we were struggling to use the program for approx 2-3 weeks.

Recommendations to other buyers: Most of the companies I reviewed before selecting careerplug had similar recruiting platforms. The on-boarding portion of the software is what sold me, as well as E-Sign being built in. This is an expensive option with many other programs.

Pros: What I like most about the software is it's functionality and interface. The interface is very user friendly which made training our Management team a lot easier. The service we have received has been great. Any time we have a question or need help we have always been able to reach someone on their service team and in instances where we have to leave a message we always receive a quick response back. This is our first real attempt at using an applicant tracking system prior to that our applications were done on paper. CareerPlug comes with a lot of features and functionality that we have yet to start utilizing. We can't wait!

Cons: The thing I like least about the product is that as you move an applicant through the recruit flow and designate them as "hired" in the system they are automatically moved to the "teams" section of the website. This is a minor issue. To me the teams section should only list users with login access.

Recommendations to other buyers: In choosing an applicant tracking vendor we first made a list of features and functionality we wanted to have. That made siting through demos easier as we knew which questions to ask and could mark off which vendors had or didn't have what we were looking for. Some vendors will give you a login and allow access to their demo site so that you can play around and get a feel for what their system is like. I'd highly recommend taking them up on that offer if available.

Pros: The product is very streamlined in the way it is presented to the user. Even if you are not a computer savvy person, you can navigate around inside CareerPlug. It has all the features that a site of this style should have including FAQ's, Comments, Settings, and Accounts. I like that there are also not an abundant amount of links and task bars to use. Very user friendly!

Cons: It can freeze up on you from time to time or take a longer time than normal to refresh a page. This might be an operating system error but I was on other web sites during the same time period and did not have that delay. That being said, it was not a substantial amount of time that I had to wait.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you go to every link and explore the entire site. A lot of software can have a tremendous looking main page and then when you navigate to other pages it can really loose its luster. You also want to make sure there are no links that might take you to another website entirely. Take the time to get to know the site.

Pros: This product has been a lifesaver for our department for a recruitment tool as well as a safe location to retain important required documentation for our reps. Our rep, Taylor has been very helpful in building the program to suit our needs as well as quickly responsive to our calls with any issues that have surfaced while onboarding our reps.

Cons: The only thing least like is the learning curve which is unavoidable when using a new system, but as I mentioned our rep is very responsive to our issues and questions.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is an excellent program for recruitment and storage. We have added a lot of our own information to CareerPlug and the support has been so accommodating to our requests.

Pros: It allows me to free up about half of my day that would have been spent tracking applicants and hearing cats in terms of interviews, ratings on candidates. Having everyone able to be in the system and have a cohesive voice in hiring is key to our recruitment success.

Cons: That I can't send out a mass "position has been filled" email through the system.

Recommendations to other buyers: Utilize the pre-screen questions and scorecards. Try to get every manager in there actively looking at each of their job posting. It not only engages them but gets them more involved in the process as a whole.

Pros: I'm very encouraged by the product and team. Initially CareerPlug didn't offer the ability to utilize my company's proprietary employment application. The software team took the extra steps to make sure that we were able to use the forms and that the forms functioned as we needed them to.

Cons: The product doesn't offer the ability to place applicants in different folders for future follow up. However, the software team continues to make new modifications and strides to make the product better. I'm eager to see how they progress.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think CareerPlug is a good value for it's functionality. The support offered by CarrerPlug is above average and I'm sure they will continue to make great strides.

Pros: I received a lot of training and support from my agent. She was quick to respond to any questions I had about using the product--usually within 24 hours. She also spent quite a bit of time walking me through all of the features of CareerPlug. I like everything about CareerPlug. As a single HR person for a small company, I have been able to be much more professional in my interactions with applicants. The quality of applicants I have received from my postings has also been good. I like the ease of job posting and emailing potential employees. I also like the assessment portion of the applicant process. It helps me screen applicants from my desk without taking any time to actually talk to the less than excellent applicants.

Cons: Navigating between the various functions is not always intuitive.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it, you'll love it. I was able to demo another ATS program and found that CareerPlug was much richer in what it offered.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it out! There are so many features that they're sometimes easy to miss. CareerPlug has a lot of amenities, so whether you're managing a simple task or looking for an in depth screening of a prospective client, they'll have you covered!

Pros: At my health club, we are very selective in who we hire for our personal training staff. What I really enjoy about using CareerPlug is how easily I can find the right candidates with the qualifications that I'm looking for. Being able to navigate and view candidates from multiple sources makes my job a lot easier.

Cons: Personally, CareerPlug is doing everything I need it to. The pre=screening evaluations that they have set up for prospective candidates is another aspect I really find to be quite useful in the hiring process.

Recommendations to other buyers: CareerPlug has an abundance of features. I'd recommend really exploring the array of tools they have to offer.

Pros: CareerPlug has been a revelation for our business. As a company with 30+ units scattered across 10 states, CareerPlug has allowed us to process 10 times as many applicants as we had previously with about half of the time expenditure.

Cons: I honestly can't think of anything we dislike about CareerPlug. Even the price is a great value.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'd challenge you to find another service that provides the level of value, ease of use, and robust features that you get with CareerPlug. Add the stellar customer service level on top, and they have truly created a world-class product.

Pros: Amongst so many reasons as to how Career Plug has been a benefit to Gold's Gym Houston, I love the follow up and follow through of this company. So many times we get involved with vendors and there is hardly any truth to all the promises made prior to signing a deal. Career Plug has exceeded our expectations in the customer service arena. Besides the customer service aspects, I have filled positions and am retaining the employees like never before, because of the great screening processes.

Cons: I don't like that they don't house out of our gyms.

Recommendations to other buyers: All I can say is when you walk through their presentation, believe everything they say. I don't put my name on many companies but have to associate my name and reputation to Career Plug.
