Comments: It's a good company and a good platform that is easy to use. If you are looking for a more cost effective option and are okay with losing some of the features you would get with a bigger ATS, Workable is a good choice. They do focus on rolling out new features and I am excited to see what happens next with them.

Pros: Very easy to use system, and the interfaces are intuitive for admins, users, and applicants. Each job goes out to 12 free job boards and candidates find it very easy to apply. Also allows candidates to apply with LinkedIn. Tracking of candidates through each job process is very easy with the "Bins" that peoples can flow through. Email templates, interview templates help keep the process simple and effective. Workable allows for each integration with HRIS, screening tools, and other interfaces.

Cons: Not much customization available depending on the price point you are willing to pay. More of an out-of-box software and does not allow the flexibility you would see with some other bigger ATS's. Some features you

Pros: I had my HR team use this software and everyone told me that starting from maintaining the resume data till the candidate is onboarded the product employs all streamlined methods to ensure the data is stored correctly without any inaccuracy.

Cons: I understand it is little time talking for anyone to understand the tool first because it looks like it is complex at a first glance., but training can reduce this shortcoming.

Comments: I started a trial to find out how Workable could benefit our business and needless to say, I was unable to complete the Trial because I was asked to provide a Utility Bill or "Other business documentation" that includes my business address. Upon providing Paychex Invoices and Employment Tax Forms (sent directly from the state) that they ("Workable") will not be able to approve my job postings based on their guidelines and that this was their final decision. It seemed like Workable would have been a great choice if you can get past the verification process. Below is the email I was sent. " Hello Joey, We have passed this business documentation to our technical team for review. They have come back to us and based on the information provided, they will not be able to approve your postings again based on their guidelines. This is their final decision in regards to the jobs on the account, unfortunately. In our experience, it is unlikely there are any changes that will bring it within our guidelines for publication. In this case, it would be best to try posting on the job boards directly. I am sorry I can't be more helpful in this case. Juan Workable Customer Support"

Pros: The overall look and feel of the interface is clean and easy to navigate. The pricing seems to be on the fair side.

Cons: Regardless of being a paying customer, you receive terrible customer service. The company cannot be relied on if you run into any troubles with their system, actually reaching someone capable of assisting you is near impossible. Last email from this company has been included in my comments.

Pros: Workable has a very aesthetically pleasing user interface. It's generally easy to post jobs and have them be published on many boards. I really like that there's a dedicated job page for the company with each job having it's own dedicated page. I really like how you can make different options mandatory/optional/do not show easily from the same page.

Cons: Sometimes the pages and the options seem complicated. Trying to find where everything is takes a little getting used to

Pros: The software is great at being an applicant tracking system. Unfortunately, beyond price, the applicant tracking service is the only plus.

Cons: The way the software is laid out is not intuitive. The poor customer support makes it even worse. The poor resume handling and search functions are a deal breaker for us.

It just says 10 days back or 1 year back (Which may be approximate) . Dont have exact date to pull up candidate email from the outlook if needed ! Also if you reply to a workable email message the reply is partially cutoff and does not appear on work

Pros: The Workable ATS has the possibility to customize the hiring process for each vacant position and this will make it more flexible than any other ATS without this feature. Also, we can assign each hiring project to different members of the recruiter team. Various reports based on mostly important hiring KPIs would be another advantage. Workable also have a chrome extension named "People Search" which is so useful in sourcing candidates from the web.

Cons: "People Search" capability has some problems in gathering updated data from different sources. Moreover, the application form designer has some issues in put some fields mandatory.

Pros: Used Workable for a while now and have been more or less satisfied. New enhancements have been released lately and when a bug is found it is reported and fixed in reasonable timeframe. It integrates talent search with the hiring pipeline which is nice. When you identify a candidate with "people search" you can access to his information from all the main social networks like Facebook, Linkedin, etc. which is important in today's recruiting field.

Cons: They bill US companies from their UK system and your bank will charge exchange fees, which is annoying. They didn't let us know this initially. The plans/subscriptions are confusing and require a lot of reading between the lines.

Comments: Workable is an amazing product and it is ideal for recruiting in a professional work environment. I would highly recommend.

Pros: The program is easy to understand and use. The program offers flexibility in designing communication templates and the application. I appreciate the ability to directly link to my calendar.

Cons: Though I believe Customer Service has done a very nice job of helping me learn the system, it can be frustrating when I am looking for an answer quickly. Communication starts with an email or chat session which is not often returned until the next day.

Pros: It's simple and easy to use. Easily posts to external job boards with just a click. The employer careers pages are simple and clean- could be more customizable and interactive but the product is fairly cheap compared to competitors.

Customer service is FAST and always helpful. We've been with workable since the beginning and they've taken our feedback into consideration.

Cons: The only real downside is the database search is somewhat cheap. I'm a huge pipeline recruiter- their hashtags to categorize help but a boolean search function would be awesome.

Pros: What I like most about Workable is that I can use assessments to help score and rank higher qualified candidates when we post requisitions for our organization. In the past we have to review each candidate separately make the decisions if we wish to invite the candidate for an interview, refer them to another open requisition or send them a rejection letter. With the assessments that we can build and attached to the requisition our candidates will apply for a open position and will have to complete those assessment. We can then view their ranking and easily decide if that candidate is worthy of a interview. We like how we can track our candidate resume and also view their social media sites like LinkedIn. We feel with Workable we have hired more qualified candidates that provide immediate value to our organization from the first day they begin employment with us.

Cons: Sometimes the candidates have the resume in a another format that is difficult for us to view in Workable. This rarely occurs but enough to mention it as a dislike.

Overall: I can easily review more qualified candidates when they apply for an open requisition.

Cons: Customer support hasn't always been brilliant and sometimes it's hard to find the right person in the organisation to talk to.

Overall: Organised hiring, plain and simple. SO much better than using a google doc and I haven't seen another ATS as clean and user friendly as Workable.

Comments: This is a great product and I'm very frustrated that in a very short time they have cut out the smaller companies with their pricing. I really had not planned on looking at other ATS systems but worry what else is ahead for the "legacy" users.

Pros: Up till now I have been very happy with this product. New enhancements have slowly been coming out and when a bug is found it is reported and fixed in acceptable time. Support is very reactive and easy to work with. When I chose this software, I liked that they charged by the job and not by the user, since I'm the main one that uses it with 6 others using the interview part of the pipeline and we only need about 10 jobs at one time.

Cons: For my small boutique consulting firm, what turned out to be a pro has now turned into a con. the cost is the main issue.

Comments: I love the people search feature. If you guys can fix its limitation would be great.

Pros: It integrates talent search with the hiring pipeline. When you identify a talent with "people search" you can access to his/her information from all the main social networks like Linkedin, Facebook, etc. Contact information is the most recently used. Customer service is eager to answer all the questions.

Cons: "People search" doesn't show a lot of the people that should be able to find. For example, I searched for QA Engineers in my City and did not identify at least 15 people I know are working as so for more than 5 years and are registered as so in many networks like Facebook and Linkedin. This makes me think that the people search feature doesn't work properly. Price

Pros: I really enjoy the ease of use. Everything is laid out in such a way, that you can navigate easily. I've trained a few people to use Workable, and they picked it up quickly. They also have many integrations that improve the value. The customizable pipeline is great, and they offer templates you can write, or use their provided ones. They have the option to drag and drop a resume, which will upload a candidate. I use this feature frequently and it is the quickest and most effective I've seen. Overall, Workable has the features I want most in an ATS.

Cons: The reporting is not my favorite. They have many options for reports, but you cannot customize all of them, which makes it harder to track the lead sources in depth. I wish there was a better rating system, currently, I can do thumbs up or thumbs down, but I find many candidates don't fall into either of those two categories.

Overall: The ease of use allows me to track my applicants in the most effective way. Workable saves me time in recruiting, with the options of templates, background checks, assessments, and other integrations.

Comments: Work on your customer service, you will make more $$$ in the long run if you retain clients.

Pros: - Easy to set up and use, but lacks features for its price range - Workable started out well, but there are many hidden hiccups and charges. Not worth the effort for something this expensive.

Cons: - Lack of Customer Support, they will force you to pay extra to use something you have already paid for - Lack flexibility, you are forced to pay upfront. If you choose to 'pay as you go plan,' you will miss out on many functionalities and will have to pay more - Predatory business model, they are here to make $$$, not to retain their users

Comments: Support it tops. The basics are all there for us to ramp up and adjust our recruiting to demand. No worries at all recommending this tool.

Pros: Straightforward, easy to use - support was very responsive and really helped me get up to speed fast. Pay per job model is excellent for a startup like us.

Cons: We're on the pay per job model so we pay for each position that we advertise. However I wanted to put up a 'General' job for people who don't see a posting to apply to and give them an opportunity to posit their reasoning for working with us. I'd have to pay for this extra job (which is kind of like a open-ended question) so instead I just put an email address up for people to shoot to if they want to try. Would be nice if I could just not advertise that job and have it sitting open on our website.

Pros: I like the parsing algorhytm of Workable: just enter the name and candidate's email and social profile's information will be parced from the net. Easy upload of CVs, great candidate management, erase of duplicated entries and check of CVs for duplicates, great system for team work, notices, shortlisting etc.

Cons: Too many functions and you need time to discover and use all of them. Not very clear pricing structure for packages and paid functions.

Pros: Workable is a great tool for companies just starting to open roles to recruit with. It's a customizable solution, with an ease of use, and an engaging UI that both beginners and experts can appreciate. The price point is also very reasonable.

Cons: The product is pretty basic. Newer ATS systems are popping up with ways to enhance sourcing where as Workable didn't have all the bells and whistles that other ATS systems are incorporating.

Pros: Easy move through, simple to track notes and to share with hiring managers, easy tagging, not complicated, intuitive easy to manage the candidate experience.

Cons: Lack some of the features of some larger more expensive packages but is a minor for under 100 staff still a great product

Comments: We're a startup with less than 15 people trying to hire 4-5 more. We have two people in charge of recruiting. After getting in touch with other ATS' (Lever, BreezyHR, Jobvite, HiringThing, the Applicant Stack), we went with Workable. This is possibly simply because most of those other softwares put me into a sales cycle queue, and I had to wait 3-4 days before I could talk to someone or see a demo. Meanwhile, Workable lets you sign up for a trial, and gets out of your way. I figured everything out on my own in 20 minutes. I think this is a testament to how well built their UI is-- you don't need a 30 minute handheld demo to figure it out, unlike other ATS (apparently). To compare, BreezyHR was also fairly intuitive, but we liked the feel of Workable better. Lever is also VERY beautiful software, but we got quoted around 6k/year (no monthly option). Meanwhile, Workable, is 200/mo for 4 jobs (monthly, not annual contract), and has 98% of the same functionality. Lever, based on the demo I got from their very nice saleslady, seems better if you're a big company where you need help streamlining communication quickly between departments, or want help auto-nurturing your recruited candidates. That just wasn't us, we're smaller and only hiring 4-5 people right now. Workable was easy to figure out, responsive, customizable, and I liked the monthly pay option. I would recommend it to any startup or small company, without any hesitation. Also, if you're recruiting...the real Workable seller is the People Search function. I almost don't want to talk about it, because I don't want other people to know about it.

Pros: -Incredibly intuitive interface -Upfront pricing that's easy to understand and reasonable (not great, but reasonable) -Customizable pipeline -People Search Chrome extension is INCREDIBLE and no one else has it. -Easy, one step posting to multiple job sites (free and premium) -Custom links so applicants can apply from anywhere and still end up in your pipeline. -On/Off mode: You can pay monthly when you're hiring, and stop when you have no active jobs. You won't lose your data.

Cons: -A few bugs (software doesn't always fetch a photo when you put in an email, even if it finds multiple social profiles) -Customer Support isn't immediate (you have to email, but they usually respond in <6 hours)

Comments: Good product but bad policies and customer support.

Pros: Good system if you are in Eurpore or outside of US and you have time to deal with their helpless customer support.

Cons: - They bill US companies from their UK system for which your bank will charge international fees. They do not make this clear at any point when you pay. You might be able to see these charges on your statement from the bank though. - Not a user-friendly system. System does not - Confusing plans & subscription: They will enroll you for the trial with 10 slots for ads but upon expiration you have the option to subscribe to pay-as-you-go plan. If you do subscribe, the system does not clarify that you cannot use job slots with this subscription. Once you buy subscription for a job you cannot switch it to the other jobs which is totally different from what you get during trial period. If you now try to switch archiving the job to switch, they will not let you un-archive the job which you have already fully paid. You will be dinged for that money which you paid and guess what their fees are non-refundable. By US standards this company would be almost illegal to not provide services after getting paid. Their customer support will not un-archive the job either but they will direct you to pay for the job again!

Workable rendered LESS reviews on our job postings than when we posted directly to these sites.

Pros: Ease of use, value for the money. Accurate, timely billing. I like the job description section too and have used it many times.

Cons: Candidates must post to a particular position. Sometimes what they want isn't posted, and it would be nice if they could submit an app to just the company in general and not a particular job.

Comments: If you only need a few roles, and you want something super easy to use with basically no learning curve, this is a great option. If you need 5 or more open jobs at all times, you might benefit from shopping around.

Pros: Workable was VERY easy to use - the buttons are where you want them to be, it's easy to create new roles, emails, etc. My favorite piece was the clean/easy dashboard. An unlimited user is a nice feature. The scorecards are awesome and easy to use, and they are creating new helpful features like this all the time. Gmail integration works well.

Cons: Workable's pricing structure isn't conducive to our needs anymore, it's gotten expensive for the platform that it is. There's no email automation aside from template creation, you can't create different pipeline stages for different roles - you are stuck with one pipeline for all your reqs. Outlook integration does NOT work well.

Comments: - My experience is positive but we are limited in our capabilities. We are looking for an overall recruiting tool that tackles the candidate experience and allows us to maximize on our pool. Workable is good for a basic recruitment tool but may not be the best if you are a growing company with over 100 employees and need something more robust.

Pros: - Good design and easy to use

Cons: - You have to buy jobs slots in bundles instead of being able to post unlimited roles - If you have a candidate that you want to upload that does not fit a role and you want to put them into a project of others like them, there isn't an option for that - The reporting is very basic - There isn't really anything there to survey or measure candidate experience - Cannot post for different company divisions under the same bundle - if you have different brands and need to purchase two accounts, cannot link the pool on the back-end to quickly check for duplicates

Comments: This is a useful product however there is no way to stop automatic renewal unless you downgrade the account to a basic version straightaway and lose the remaining time you have left. They are basically penalising you for stopping automatic renewal. This is a manipulative technique meant to encourage you to stay on and then banking on you forgetting to renew the day before your licence is due for renewal.

Comments: Nice, simple and fresh to use. Nothing particularly fancy about its functionality, it will just save you time putting things on an excel sheet. After two price hikes, the price is now unaffordable.

Pros: Simplicity.

Cons: Very expensive. When it started was very cheap it was a great deal. Then it became very expensive For the functionality, it offers this price is beyond ridiculous. Particularly if you have multiple jobs you will be paying extraordinary amounts of money for a glorified applicant tracking system which you could also do manually on an excel sheet.

Comments: One of the best things about workable is the "seamless" integration with your company's online profile. Much like Google's business e-mail service, having your company's name/domain (ex: yourcompany.workable.com) gives it a more professional look and feel. Plus, you can easily customize your job post, review and replay to candidates all from Workable. If you're looking for a good online recruiting tool, say no more, Workable is a good choice.

Pros: Very user-friendly with regards to navigation and user experience. Integrates with Company's website. Good for keeping things organized.

Cons: Have encountered a few issues with scheduling interviews when the inaccurate time was sent out. Integration with BambooHR is okay but it would be nice if the start date could be edited in the process.

Pros: Easy communication between hiring managers Pulls candidates' social profiles Integrates with company website Allows for a customized workflow

Cons: Lot's of emails- can get lost Customer support is typically live chat, not phone Updated version doesn't have an easy way to share the job- still, don't know where the job link can be found within the platform.

Recommendations to other buyers: Not a ton of bells & whistles, but does the job! It's easy to use and grabs useful candidate information. The workflow is easy.

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.

Overall: 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.

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: This is my first experience with Workable and it has performed beyond my expectations! We are a rapidly growing tech company and as such have increased our hiring needs. We are trying to streamline our hiring process and increase efficiency for those involved. With no training and just a brief overview from my HR dept I was able to quickly and easily access my job posting, review applications and weed out the next level applicants. Whether passing to the next step (which is customizable by the way) or declining the applicant it is very simple to organize the hiring process. The mass email feature is also extremely helpful for contacting applicants about the next steps, or form "thank you" letter. This is a really intuitive system, they've done a great job!

Pros: Very easy to navigate, I like the quick view of applicants and stages and I like that I can click any one of them to see who¿s in that stage. Very intuitive, little to no training needed

Cons: Haven't found any cons at all

Comments: We were looking for an applicant tracking system with an easy user interface and social profile capability. Workable allows us to easily upload all resumes that are emailed to us and track candidates in a way that works for our team. The step-by-step progress of candidates is easy on the eyes and allows everyone on each hiring team to see exactly where each candidate stands. I really like the evaluation capabilities as well. My only hesitations are with the archiving of jobs and the customization of the job posting template. When someone is hired, it doesn't automatically close the position, move it to archive, and email the remaining candidates. This would be a nice feature.

Pros: The user interface and the ability to upload resumes.

Recommendations to other buyers: For the price, I believe this is the best option out there. It is also nice to be month-to-month instead of stuck in a contract. I'd definitely do the free trial of this product to see if it is the best choice for your company.

Pros: Workable is a user friendly ATS that does exactly what you need. My company did not have an ATS prior to Workable and now we use the program for all of our hiring needs and we even have all of our managers set up on it for interview purposes. Their customer service is great as well, they are super responsive!

Cons: When you post a job it goes to a ton of different job boards, which is great but we all know Indeed tends to take the cake. They let you sponsor jobs further but they only give set amounts. I wish there was an option to sponsor a job further on Indeed for whatever price you wanted.

Recommendations to other buyers: Websites claim this is more of a basic ATS and although it may be a good program to get your foot in the door, it definitely offers way more than I would of thought!

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you can use this in conjunction with whatever email system you use whether it is Google or Microsoft and that it can use your calendar to sync schedules etc. Is it adaptable to your email calendar? Can you use it across the company email system.

Pros: AMAZINGLY responsive tech support/customer service! Great LinkedIn integration but slightly complicated to perform; customizable workflow/pipeline; end-to-end solution.

Cons: Limited number of steps in the customizable pipeline - yet other vendors allow for unlimited number of steps, unsure why this one cannot do the same... ? While the Customer Service Team is responsive, usually they send a "see this link" response, rather than answering the question - they could've just copy/pasted what I had asked for ...

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it out thoroughly so you know what you are getting into from an Employer perspective, and understand what your candidates will be experiencing on their side too.

Pros: I like that it aggregates the job posting to different sites with the click of one button. It allows you to create your own template responses. It is easy and keeps you logged in. We absolutely recommend it.

Cons: I wish they had entire HRIS with onboarding system. We don't use all the functionality of it because we pay for a system that does all our HR/Benefits/Payroll, etc. and I haven't seen that capability in Workable.

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend doing it! It is a win win. It is always nice to get perspective from people using the software.

Pros: Easy to set up and start posting jobs. The interface is easy to understand and you don't need to waste anytime with user guides or training for that matter. Their support team is very accessible and I rarely "can't" get a hold of them. The price is also a reasonably easy sell to decision makers.

Cons: It leaves something to be desired. I have used Jazz in the past and Jazz offers way more candidate focused ./ user focused features that Workable just hasn't done. When you do ask the Support staff they usually don't even had the feature ideas on a product roadmap which is frustrating because with a software purchase you hope they are always going to improve it. It's a low cost option and that becomes obvious when you start using the software.

Recommendations to other buyers: If cost is your biggest priority, it's a great solution. It was the first ATS my company implemented and they were hardly sold on the idea of an ATS to begin with. But if you can stretch your budget, go with Jazz or something like that. It would be worth the cost.

Pros: It's really well organized and very easy to use. I like how it offers the filters for searching candidates and also how it divides our open positions up within our organization.

Cons: I haven't come across anything that I disliked about workable. It's very user friendly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Our management team just started using workable the past few weeks. I've found it's better suited to stay organized with the high volume of candidates we interview on a daily bases. I like that I can pull up and print the candidates resume directly from the website rather than having to wait on the candidates resume from HR. I also like how I can view other candidates in other Departments whom interviewed for other positions to see if they would be better suited for my division. It allows any manager to be able to log in and print a copy of the candidates resume. I can also upload other documents such as the results of the interview questions I've asked the candidate and how they answered the questions. This website has eliminated our filing cabinets and allowed us to go paperless. I'm happy to have a program such as workable to really streamline our interview process and stay organized.

Comments: i've hired more than a dozen people using workable in the last 6 months. it's convenient but you may find it a little expensive unless you're constantly hiring.

Pros: a single inbox for everyone involved in hiring predefined (& user customizable) templates make it easy to send single/bulk emails intuitive user interface free (&paid) postings to multiple job boards

Cons: pretty expensive for what it is. they deprecated their cheaper pricing tier. craigslist has workable as one of the ban words

Recommendations to other buyers: see if your startup is eligible for Facebook's FBstart program. you may be able to receive some complimentary subscription.

Pros: This product is so simple to use. It is basic and great for a small to mid-size company. I also think that the candidate flow you get is fantastic! Our supervisors love the option of having everything electronic as opposed to having paper everywhere.

Cons: Nothing so far. We are loving it! This is the first ATS system we have used so we are just starting to get our feet wet.

Recommendations to other buyers: Train your supervisors and make the most of the program. It is basic but you can really use a lot of the features for a variety of purposes.

Pros: Great for allowing the whole team to view candidate profiles. The reporting features allow more members of the organization greater clarity into the hiring process.

Cons: I wouldn't change a thing. Although switching to this solution from a manual process requires a great deal of data entry. I'm curious to see if there's any way to automate the process.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would tell them to try using all the site's features before writing the review. Forms are my favorite function

Comments: We're usually hiring 1-5 people at any given time. Workable allows us to manage jobs, submit and optionally advertise these jobs to various job boards, and manage all interaction with the applicants.

Pros: *Great system! *Collaborate as team to hire. *Manage our applicant progress with the funnel system.

Cons: *Almost none *The system allows you to answer basic questions when the applicant submits an application. However, it would be nice later down the process if there was a way to have standard templated interview questions that our hiring manager could use to ask and record answers.

Comments: We have tried Workable during the free trial and then for an other free trial that the customer service offered to us in order to complete our trial. Their customer service is effective and fast to answer. The overall app is quite interesting, user friendly, offering good features. However, I have found other apps with the same quality (in my point of view) and with a much more descent pricing. Especially for a small and growing company like mine. To bet on the success of one's client could have been more fair. Too bad

Pros: Very user friendly. You can feel that they developed their solution knowing their business. The features are great and answer majority of the issue a company like mine could encounter.

Cons: It would be perfect if a very light customer management was possible.

Pros: I like that you can add as many users as need and that they can provide feedback easily via the ATS. It is relatively easy to use. I love the way the careers page looks and that it also can post roles on social media (Facebook).

Cons: Once you close out a role you can't update that candidate which can make it difficult for pipelining candidates. They also don't have a tool that pulls resumes easily from the major job boards.

Recommendations to other buyers: Only for Corporate would not consider for agency. There is not an ability to add clients but you can add multiple companies (added cost).

Pros: Great customer service. Product is very affordable when posting just a few positions. Also has a lot of great features. Mobile website works great for our managers to access from their smartphones while on the job.

Cons: The application customization could be a little more feature rich. I was not able to build our complete company application in the program. This makes the recruiter have to reach back out the the candidates and have them fill out an " official " and more detailed application before being interviewed.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a smaller company ( we are about 8o employees ) needing a more organized process for hiring, I would recommend this tool. If you are our size or larger, there might be more extensive programs available. We are in the process of switching to Applicant Pro. But overall, Workable has been a great solution in the mean time.

This has taken our recruiting to the next level.

Pros: This product has allowed us to collaborate more effortlessly and has increased our recruiting efforts' effectiveness. My favorite aspects of this product are its user friendly interface, the fact that we have been able to go paperless, and how it allows the team to collaborate from anywhere, including the office and at home.

Cons: We'd like to see the option to have different pipelines for different jobs, for example while we added a skills testing phase for one job, we don't do skills testing for our other job. While we phone screen one position, we do not phone screen the other. I really like the email templates, but it would be great to have even more types of placeholder options. We would also like to see the option to pay an invoice via corporate check, like we do with all of our other vendors.

Recommendations to other buyers: Our whole team has been so happy with how Workable has performed - my only recommendation is to try Workable!

Pros: 1. I love the way Workable works with my Gmail account, my LinkedIn account, and my Indeed account 2. I reviewed 6 Applicant Tracking Systems, and Workable is the most user-friendly, and the best-looking 3. There are no set-up fees, and if I am having a slow recruiting month, the monthly cost will drop 4. I can share candidate's profiles, as well as resumes, with my hiring managers. They LOVE this.

Cons: I've been using Workable for about 6 weeks, for 8 job postings, and I have no complaints or issues at all.

Recommendations to other buyers: Besides looking at demos of the systems, definitely try each one out for at least a few days. You cannot really get an idea of the day-to-day workings of a system unless you use it for a time.

Pros: Some Pro's: - Very affordable for small sized company - This product is very easy to use. - Can ask open ended questions in the application form. - They post your ad on 12 free job broads for you. - You can email candidates straight from workable candidate profiles. - Can move candidates from one stage to another in the interview process.

Cons: Some Con's: - Cant write comments on a candidate profile unless they are attached to a active job posting. This makes it hard to go back and write comments.

Recommendations to other buyers: I wish I could make comments on candidate profiles without them having to be attached to a active posting. Very time consuming to have to go and attached them to a posting just to be able to make a comment.

Pros: Very easy to use on the HR side, as well as the hiring manager side, no matter what the experience level of the hiring manager may be. I like how we can leave private comments about applicants as well, to hep move people along in the process.

Cons: We needed a generic application for our start up mode, and that was not something that could be accommodated appropriately. We used a Word template instead. Would have liked to not have those additional steps.

Recommendations to other buyers: It can be confusing when comparing the numerous products. We focused on ease of use as well as flexible pricing. Some ATS require a significant up-front expense. Workable keeps it month-to-month with the ability to increase or decrease as our needs fluctuate.

Pros: The main reason I chose Workable for our company's Applicant Tracking software is due to its user friendly capability. There was minimal training involved and all of the Hiring Managers equally shared my compassion for the service. Everyone has agreed that it has allowed us to effectively track candidates and comment on the interviewing process. We have effectively hired many new candidates since using the system.

Cons: My least favorite aspect about this tool is the time lag between viewing candidate profiles.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would highly recommend this software to other users who are looking for a quick and simple approach to an applicant tracking tool. It does not take long to learn and has been highly effective with everyone on the hiring team. I have even been able to generate reports from the different job posting sites to determine which sites have been most effective in submitting candidates to our company. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone looking for a user friendly environment.

Comments: Workable is a great way to manage all aspects of the hiring process. From screening applicants through to sending an offer (and all the communication in between). It will save time on the administrating the hiring process and make sure no good candidates slip through the cracks.

Comments: Workable is a really cool and affordable tool insofar it instantly lets you review and track the progress of the candidates who applied for a job (or were sourced) with your company. It is extremely simple to use and integrates wherever you want it, so you can always have all the applications in one place, with seamless planning and execution of further steps.

Pros: Integrates with all the apps you need; very simple to use; clean and lean interface, all your job ads in one place; easily track the progress of your applicants and distinguish between applications.

Cons: You do need to enter information manually, meaning you have to be the one to move a candidate from one stage to another. This can be a bit inconvenient. Also, it would be desirable for Workable to have more and more comprehensive features.

Pros: It seemed like a really nice product when I was watching the videos of it.

Cons: The way you have to disable and re-enable job postings even when the "positions" are very similar. You should be able to list qty of a certain posting if the position is exactly the same. Instead of using up postings for the same position. Hope that makes sense.

Recommendations to other buyers: Workable has great customer service, their platform is very well built. Their pricing model and how the listing of positions work with it is a little different and I'm not fond of it but where that lacks, they make up for it with a great product and support.
