Pros: I like how simple it is to syndicate out to dozens of job boards. That's the main purpose for us, and it works pretty well. It also has a nice and easy to use Kanban interface which we have grown used to from our opportunities and task pages.

I also really like their Chrome extension which allows us to easily add someone to Breezy from LinkedIn. Somehow Workable doesn't offer this, and it's a life saver in terms of monitoring who you messaged and who you didn't.

Cons: The support is a little lacking, but not in the quality. They use Intercom and I learned from Outreach.io when they switched from the Live Chat interface to support tickets that they had found live chat actually slows interactions for support. I found this to be true with Breezy as I ask a question, they get back at some point later when I'm not there, then I answer much later etc etc.

It's a lot of back and forth that's very slow, and I think support tickets would help manage this better than a live chat where it's easy to ask really quick questions and go back and forth for awhile.

My only other gripe is integration. I'm making the leap to SFDC, and Breezy only seems to integrate with things via Zapier. Workable is the same. It's not a deal breaker, but a nice SFDC integration would be amazing since we're already paying for the software. I have been looking at alternative ATS's that sync with SFDC just to make my life easier.

Overall: I tried Breezy HR after stumbling upon them in Product Hunt, and I'm glad I did. I used to use Workable at a former employer, but I was starting my own recruiting company and wanted to start off with a solid free trial. Workable offers one, but Breezy offers a completely free posting forever, so we figured we could start with that!

We quickly got some applicants, and found the process with adding people from LinkedIn and moving them through the pipeline to be very easy. Support is also readily available, and the prices are better than for Workable. As the tiers go up and we needed larger and larger amounts of job postings, Breezy HR stays much more affordable than Workable, and as far as I'm concerned it's basically the same product.

The tagging of people, managing them through the pipeline, taking notes on them etc are all essentially the same. I can't really remember using anything differently in Workable, but to be fair I haven't used it in a year or so.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a relatively basic tool, and if you're just using it for occasional internal hiring, it's absolutely perfect. You get one free job so you're good to go, and upgrading up and down is eezy peezy.

Pros: The ability to not only have email templates but to automate the sending of them with placeholders for the position and candidate name is a great feature. The visual pipeline is great, and being able to change a candidate's status from multiple access points makes it really easy to move candidates through the pipeline without actually having to go back to that view every time. The layout is simple, but the customization is powerful, so we were really able to customize the process so we are doing the same things we used to do through email, just much faster.

Cons: The meeting scheduling didn't work for us, and we ended up using a service called Calendly for setting up interviews since they allow us to provide one link and let the interviewee choose any available date, versus us having to offer specific dates, which takes up more time and makes the scheduling management more complicated. But since that process is outside of breezy, there is the extra step of then moving them through the pipeline. It would be nice if Breezy could have the option of letting the candidate choose from any available time, so we don't have to manually choose a time, then they could be automatically moved through the pipeline when they schedule.

The handling of repeat applicants is also not as intuitive as we'd like. Even when an applicant applies with the same email address, they show up as a separate profile. We've had the problem where if someone applies through indeed and we move them into breezy, the email is different so there's no way to know right away if they are a repeat. Also, we hire a seasonal team every year, so we'd love a way to flag people who come back, especially if we didn't hire them in the past. We tend to not hire people we've rejected, so we want to make sure we don't bring them in for an interview

Overall: We used to manage our seasonal hiring through gmail and spreadsheets, so it's much easier now to go through the process, leaving us more time in our day!

Pros: Rich feature set; especially given the cost. The pipeline customization and management features are great.

Cons: Sometimes the UI has been a bit ahead of what works well on various browsers and some tools have not worked well at all. However lately everything seems to be good.

Overall: We adopted Breezy when it was fairly new and built our recruitment process around it. It does an amazing job of importing resumes, automating internal chat about the candidate, automating email communications with the candidate, and building custom forms/questionnaires for candidates to complete. The entire recruiting team uses it to promote our company's openings and organize our processing of candidates. We selected Breezy instead of using a tool that is built into our HR platform. If we used that tool some things would be a lot easier (such as onboarding) but what Breezy offers is so much better we care less about that aspect. Since we have to process 10-20-more candidates for every one we hire it makes sense to use a tool that is really good at those tasks. Breezy helps us make sure we spend most of our time reviewing the best candidates while treating everyone with respect.

Recommendations to other buyers: Resume import is very well done. You can import a sea of garbage and get all your candidates into a common view where side by side comparisons are easy. You do not have to ask candidates to type in their resume in order to build a normalized data base; they can just upload their resume and unless it is really awful and poorly done the import will be very clean.

Pros: Let's face it. Recruiting is now all about managing data. A firehose of candidates needs to be filtered down to the very best qualified, so utilizing recruiters' time most effectively means we need an intuitive tool that can easily be customized. BreezyHR is the perfect solution. Now we don't have to change the way we recruit to fit our ATS. BreezyHR is the only solution where we can customize the information we collect from applicants, and then review that information in a way that saves time. This means our candidates can become employees even faster than ever because of BreezyHR. Aside from amazing user interface and customization ability, their tech support is the finest. If we ever have a question about how a feature works, or how we can use existing features to achieve our goal, we simply click the little chat bubble, and within minutes, our BreezyHR staff person is right there with an answer. When there is something we want that the program isn't designed to do, their answer is always positive. "Great idea. We will look into that and get back to you." From the moment our recruiters began using BreezyHR, they were sold! I don't think we could pry it out of their hands now.

Cons: Handling applicant data in groups, like moving everyone in one pipeline stage to another, or sending an entire group of applicants in a pipeline stage a mass email is not a feature. We would also like any applicants to go through a filter and be marked if they are already in a "pool" so we know that they are an applicant we have previously interviewed or reviewed. Right now, there is no way to know if someone who applies for one job has previously applied and/or been scored or interviewed for another one of our positions.

Pros: The pipeline function is incredibly visible- easy to move people through the stages or to another position.

Cons: I don't like how you have to assign a set pipeline and set questionnaire. I feel like that should be completely customizable within each open position. Seems redundant to have to have a position, then assign a questionnaire or pipeline which may be unique to that position.

Overall: So far we've had a great run with Breezy. We have to do hire over 500 seasonal employees in a 5 month time frame, and Breezy helps us to stay organized. Managing the pipeline is incredibly easy, and visible; it's easy to tell where our bottle necks are or how efficiently our hiring process is going. It's also incredibly easy to teach new users how use.

We started with Breezy as a newer company, and they have been good at listening to and implementing our feedback to fit our needs. I also appreciate how they keep users up to date with new features as they become available. Also- the way they manage pricing per opening versus per hire works for us as a seasonal company!

Comments: When hired to help build out the first startup I worked for, I needed an affordable and scalable option to track candidates in. I found BreezyHR back when it was "Nimble" and fell in love with it's Trello-like appeal. It is built for collaboration between the recruiter and hiring manager as well as very easy progression from whichever stage they are in (sourced, talked-to, interviewing, offer made, disqualified, hired). Candidates can be dragged and dropped between any stage you want. Also, their Chrome plugin is AMAZING. I can upload candidate profiles directly to positions by clicking the button when on their LinkedIn profile. It makes importing candidates a piece of cake. I'd give it 4.5 out of 5 stars if possible just for a few small fixes that would make it incredible.

Pros: 1. Beautiful user interface 2. Easy collaboration with hiring managers 3. Simple candidate progression 4. Amazing Chrome plugin (Linkedin profile upload to database)

Cons: 1. If you upload via LinkedIn, their address info and contact info usually aren't on their profiles. Furthermore, uploading their resume later doesn't parse their information (address, phone #, etc.) into the fields, though it does if you originally upload the candidate via resume first rather than LinkedIn. 2. You can only upload candidates to positions you have created and candidates can only apply to positions that are open. Their is no way for passive candidates to just apply to your company through the hiring page if the position they are looking for is not open. I would VERY GLADLY pay extra each month to be able to add candidates to the database rather than just to specific roles. This is especially important for startups that may create new positions later for great candidates they can't imagine living without!

Pros: The best part of Breezy is its simplicity and intuitiveness which make it fun to use and therefore great collaboration tool. Breezy offers any company to have in no time all the necessary tools to start recruiting properly: easy candidate creation, automatic job posting, candidate management, recruiting web page, employer branding options, referral tool and many more features are constantly added to improve UX. Support is reactive (during US working hours) and usually helpful.

Cons: Improvement could be made on localisation and the Breezy recruiting website. It is difficult to fully integrate to a company website and the presentation is fine for a small amount of positions but UX/UI can be affected if too many position (3 presentation options). There are no possibilities to register multiple locations for positions. Targeted jobboards are adapted for the US and improvement could be made for other countries (France)... some work needs to be done to be a perfect product outside of the US.

Breezy is great!

Pros: I love the social media aspect and that you can instantly share your positions on a variety of social media sites. I love communicating within the software. No one gets bogged down with email and you can easily review conversations you've had about the role. It also allows for transparency and keeps everyone on the same page. Communicating within the tool is great as well. There are so many cool features, it's hard to list them all!

Breezy is super easy to use and cost effective. Many ATS's charge per user, which can get costly. Breezy charges based on number of open requisitions and you can adjust your subscription at any time based on the number of openings you have.

Cons: My only complaint is that anyone who is listed as a hiring manager receives candidate communication. Not a huge deal but can cause confusion for the hiring manager if a recruiter is communicating with multiple candidates on multiple requisitions.

Overall: I've rolled out Breezy for 4 clients now and all of them love it. It's great for small to mid-sized businesses!

Recommendations to other buyers: It's great!

Pros: I like that it is very responsive and it feels like it's designed to focus on helping you get the job done when it comes to managing applicants for hiring campaigns.

The layout for managing candidates is super simple and I've easily managed to save myself many hours moving candidates through our hiring process.

I was using Google Sheets before to manage everything and I thought I was doing a good job, but Breezy has helped me to simplify and improve my process as well as making it super easy to manage my new and improved process.

It's made us better at hiring, win.

Cons: There are a few features which don't work as expected and I have to work around them. Whenever I come across something that isn't working as expected I reach out on Intercom and receive a prompt response, so that's super cool.

But yeah, sometimes I'm like - why can't this thing be done differently. For instance when an automated email is queued, there is no option to edit the text. So if I've just been speaking to a candidate and I move them to the next phase I often have to delete the automated email and send a new one so that I can edit it.

Overall:

1. It's helped me to formalize my hiring process

2. It's helped me to save time managing candidates in my process

3. It's given my team visibility into my process

4. It's helped me to respond more quickly to candidates

5. It's reduced the mental overhead and stress I experience in hiring

Comments: We absolutely love Breezy HR and would highly recommend them to any organization. We are going from 200 100 employees by end of year and Breezy continues to provide the proper support to assist us! The support team is one of the best that I've ever experienced from a vendor and they are passionate on helping us Hiring Great Talent!

Pros: Modern and easy to use platform for both candidates and internal hiring teams Easy setup with great looking creative elements to elevate your Employer Brand A ton of useful functionality with continuous updates that elevate software Free aggregators that successfully pull great candidates World Class service from Breezy! You are always top priority!

Cons: We have been with Breezy since December in 2016 and I gotta say that I don't have any Cons. If you don't have a function this team works hard to make it happen. We needed additional reporting and they created the function for it. We needed an effective way to launch a Referral program with reporting and they did it. This really is such an awesome company and software vendor!

Pros: Makes common sense and works! Since 2009 when i started Hamilton Resourcing i have used a dozen ATS's from Australia to UK to USA and this is far far better than everything. I wish I could buy Breezy.

Cons: Sign in process is still work in progress. Just doesn't work. Here is the problem.

' New member is invited

' Member receives email with link

' Member clicks the link and browser opens a form

' Member completes the form and click the button (save or submit don't remember)

' Nothing happens (this is where the problem is. After the details have been completed and submit button pressed the browser should log the member in. this never happens)

' Member is wondering what happened and goes back to email

' No new confirmation notification member presses the same invitation email link again thinking something went wrong

' This time when the browser opens it gives an error; your login session has expired!

' More problems and total confusion on what to do next

Guys as soon as the form is completed the first time it should take the member inside the application. At this point the Admin should also receive email notification confirming that the member is logged in so he could give him permissions for the jobs.

Overall: You cannot do TA without an ATS. I recommend this product to my clients everyday.

Designed to my needs and super intuitive, I'm a happy camper with this ATS

Pros: There's a large variety of job boards and the possibility to taylor your online presence by sponsoring the ones that are most important to you.

The soft also enables to run reports about the sources of my applications which is very important to understand if and where my marketing campaign is working

The application funnel is super easy to track. I like that moving an applicant (or several) from one column to another triggers instantly the actions I designed (like sending a questionnaire or a simple email with a request for availabilities).

Finally I'd say what I like most is also the team behind the tool. Whenever I did not understand a feature or simply had a question, I just went on the online chat and bam, problem solved

Overall: Easy posting on main job boards

Follow up of my applications funnel

Batch actions (e.g. mass communication to candidates)

Fluid sharing of info about the prospects and applications

Pros: iLinkya Staffing is LOVING the Visual Pipeline!! It also automatically generates an email when a candidate is dragged and dropped into new phase of the pipeline. This really automates my teams process! Easily saving them up to a couple hours per day!

LOVE that we do not pay per user!!! HUGE cost saver for us, allowing us to allocate those funds towards increasing employee moral and client support features!

Easy Breezy to use!!!!

Chat support is good, I can't say GREAT because there is a little time delay. I can say all of our questions has been answered in a reasonable amount of time with A+ attitudes!

Cons: Geared for an internal company system vs. a contract recruiter or recruiting firm. We are currently working around this by adding a business CRM, but wish BreezyHR would add this option to their system. It is still a more economical option than bullhorn.

Overall: Love BreezyHR! It is extremely easy to use, and I LOVE the visual pipeline!! Also, love that I do not pay per user!! Visual pipeline, easy of use, and paying for # job posts is the reason we love and choose BreezyHR! The ONLY thing I'd like to mention, is that it is fundamentally created for an internal company system vs. a recruiting firm. We are easily navigating around that - but missing some key recruiting firm needs - such as managing business / client relationships. Currently, we love BreezyHR so much that we have a separate CRM for our business contacts!

Recommendations to other buyers: BreezyHR- would like to see Recruiting firm options! Please - at least a designated a place to store companies contact information!

Pros: Simple, customizable, workflow-based paradigm; that's what separates it from a simple posting platform. Also, unlike other SaaS products I use, my whole team can participate with no extra per-user charges. I love that it automatically sends jobs to other platforms like Indeed and Glassdoor with no extra work on my part.

Cons: I feel like the monthly fees accelerate pretty quickly when you're posting a lot of jobs. For a high-growth startup like us it can get expensive for a single-purpose tool, but overall the value is well worth it. I really love that posting a single job is free, so that makes up for a lot.

Overall: I discovered Breezy after seeing what other companies were using for their recruiting. After sorting through a lot of uber-expensive solutions, I found that Breezy was reasonably priced given its power, has a really intuitive column-based workflow, and keeps getting better with new features every few weeks.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try if you're looking for hiring software. Your investment is really low because it just means you've signed up a few users on your team--that's your only time commitment since the single role posting is currently free. It's really ready to go out of the box with useful pipelines and an intuitive, modern flat UI. I wish there were a few questionnaire templates or guidance on scorecard best practices, etc., but hopefully they will add those soon.

Cons: I can't think of something right now, they're constantly making improvements and adding new features to the Product.

Pros: Easy to use, very intuitive, and great customer support when needed.

Cons: No dislikes after 8 months of use.

Overall: I've used other apps for candidate tracking, and so far Breezy is the best! Drag and drop functionality, easily create new job postings and post to job boards, add notes to candidate profiles, communicate with candidates via Breezy so that all hiring managers (that are selected) can see what the candidate has been told and has said in response, and so much more! I've been using Breezy since March of this year, so for about 8 months, and I've yet to come across a scenario where I wished we could do more with Breezy. It's fit all of our needs, and I would highly recommend this app to anyone involved in the hiring process. As I've had questions along the way, technical support has been immediate (usually within 15 minutes) and very helpful. It's very simple, yet so robust that I haven't even used all of the features yet. Great job, Breezy!

Pros: Easy to use - It took me no time to figure out how to use Breezy HR. When I was stuck I was able to contact customer support through chat and got a response within minutes.

Create your own pipeline - This is something that I like the most. Being a freelance recruiter means that my pipeline is a little different than the norm. I don't actually interview or hire anyone. I'm simply a recruiter. But sometimes I like to go back and see who's ahead in the process. Breezy HR allows me to create my own pipeline to fit the stages that my candidates go through.

Free version - I use the free version because since I don't post jobs, hire, or interview I don't need all the extra features like job page and such. This allows me to have a software where I can see all my candidates and how far they've moved within the pipeline.

Mobile app - Breezy HR has a mobile app so you're able to update candidates on the fly. You can also received notifications of new applicants if you post your jobs on the job page they provide you.

Great customer service - As I said before, if you are unsure of how to do something you can contact someone through the live chat. I received a response within minutes.

Overall: I was able to use a free version of recruiting software that provided me with everything I was looking for. It allows me to view all of my candidates and upload candidates. It also allows me to change the pipeline however I want. It's easy to use and customer service is always available and helpful. There's also a mobile app which is helpful.

Pros: Easy to use with very little training.

Req creation, folder creation, adding candidates are fast.

Cons: Analytics - reporting could use some tweaking.

Email issues: can't copy anyone on emails, can only add one attachment, cannot retract sent email if it hasn't been open. New feature works with outlook but not gmail to review sent emails from breezy.

Overall: Overall we really enjoy the solution and we love that is evolving monthly. Analytics need some tweaking, but Breezy team takes our recommendations and seem to be making changes as we are growing too. I love how easy it is for sourcers to send resumes. Overall great solution for us!

Pros: Kanban-style recruitment workflow

Hiring Manager collaboration and aggregated scoring

Easy book interviews

Great customer support

Completely customisable to your process

Excellent careers portal functionality

Google Chrome extension is awesome

Supplier integration is easy

Cons: Mobile apps are good (and useful) but don't have full functionality yet.

Overall: We've only been using Breezy a short time, but it's already making a huge difference to our candidate response times, helping us to keep candidates informed quickly and consistently, at every step of the recruitment process.

Our Hiring Managers and stakeholders can all work collaboratively within Breezy to review, screen, interview and evaluate candidates, enabling us to make better, faster hiring decisions and matching the right person to the right vacancy.

There is a mountain of awesome functionality and - what looks like - some very detailed reporting tools. I've used A LOT of different systems over the years and Breezy feels like a complete upgrade on anything else out there at the minute.

Recommendations to other buyers: About as far removed from the usual large-scale "Enterprise" solution as you can get. Breezy feels (and is) a young product, but delivers some immense functionality and is really fun to use! I was slightly worried about scaling it up for our business, (750 global heads, circa 50 vacancies) but so far it's been a smooth, enjoyable process.

Pros: Ease of use. Customization to fit the our needs. Great way of communicating with in the organizations and with new hires.

Cons: Availability of customer service. The quality of service is great - just getting to someone in a timely fashion has been lagging.

Overall: Overall an excellent recruiting tool that provides for highly effective collaboration and transparency within the organization and communication with potential great hires. My only concern is with the access and availability of customer service. I have seen the access improve in recent weeks and the quality of service in providing answers to my questions is good.

Recommendations to other buyers: Improve access to customer service. Improve FAQ Expand, Expand automatic posting capability to CareerBuilder and other major sites.

Pros: So we have been live for 4 weeks now, and wow, super easy to use. We were up and live in under an hour. I can automate every work flow, score applicants based on custom questions; stream-out unqualified ones and auto-respond to highly qualified ones. Templates for emails, questionnaires, reference checks. Video interview questions and reference checks. I can drag an drop an applicant into a 'phone screen' workflow and they automatically get an email invite to my calendar. With auto-declines, we love that we can respond to everyone who applies. We have a work flow for people out-of-country, and over-qualified, so we can personalize our decline email. Our team loves getting to input feedback on applicants and build their own interview guides to score. We have used at least 3 ATS in the past, and demo'd a dozen more, this is by far the best we have seen. Really, really impressed so far. If you're looking for an ATS, demo this one.

Overall: Saves an incredible amount of time by automating processes. The ads and job board looks great. It's improved the quality of our communication and follow-up time with applicants. All around, we love it.

Overall, Breezy is awesome for the price and gets the job done

Pros: The overall ease of use of seeing the entire pipeline in one page, the cost for what you get is amazing, having everything right there for the candidate to email and make notes, and of course, the drag and drop in the pipeline and setting up stages is easy as well. Adding in the individual guides for the positions for interviewers is also a nice compliment to the interview process.

Cons: We transitioned from a very robust and expensive ATS, so there's some limitations to Breezy. As a coordinator, I'm always on the calendar invites, so it clogs my calendar. You can't move a candidate to a different position without duplicating it then deleting the original, so you lose work. Not being able to cc others in an email to the candidate. Having the calendar invite through Breezy always include the "breezy links" so we have to invite candidates through our gmail calendar. Not allowing recruiters to see the status or get a status notification of their candidates, so I'm constantly updating them. Not being able to edit or delete a comment made, so if there is comp figures or a mistake made, it's there forever. Filter attributes are a little messy.

Breezy provides a great amount of functionality for at an affordable cost.

Pros: Easy to use. Lots of unique features such as video conference. Filtering tools. Metrics. Email functionality. Notifications. Scheduling, and Job board sourcing.

Cons: I believe there are a few things that can be changed and several important features that are missing. Candidate profile should have location section under contact info. Location should be taken off resume and should have a filtering tool. Breezy would be amazing if it had an efficient ticketing system for both positions and candidates (ex. John Doe is scheduled for an interview with... John Doe previously interviewed for ____ positions on the date of _____, This job has been open for 'x' number of days, this job position has had x amount of applicants in comparison to this job here are some suggestion to increase number/quality of applicants) . A section that lists all the candidates that you have left notes on in the past 30/60/90 days. A click to dial function. A function that highlights in red that the candidate has been hired and to not contact.

Overall: Candidate management, filter, scheduling, qualifying, follow up, ranking, metrics, piping, screening, feedback, easy to use messaging/emailing functionality.

I've tried most ATS and can say without a doubt - Breezy just works.

Pros: Ease of use for sure. I also like the fact that they're continually coming out with updates. Shows that its not a produce it and walk away product. I like that I can include non-HR people into the process and the interface is very natural - not a whole lot of education needs to be done.

Cons: The one thing that I'd really like to see, is more of the social media component to candidates profiles. Some ATS have a social media scraper that self populates candidates profiles. It shows me things that the candidate may not want me to see. Helps me identify potential landmines before I get caught in the shrapnel.

Overall: ease of use - good value for money.

Pros: Easy to use, visually appealing, great functions to streamline the process.

Cons: I would like to see a more comprehensive export of all recruitment documents (resumes, questionnaires, notes, etc).

Overall: We switched over to Breezy about 8 months ago and it has made our recruitment process much more efficient. We can now effectively track and move around candidates in real time for all of our projects. All of the features make it easy to source, maintain and follow up with candidates. The customer support team is great in letting you know about new features or responding quickly if you are running into any issues. I would definitely recommend you try the system out!

Recommendations to other buyers: Great if you have multiple projects for multiple clients!

Pros: ease of use, adding a new job is easy, love the automatic import features

Cons: There is no real de-dupe process, flag or step in place that creates a TON of confusion. Name searching is clunky. Emailing is clunky (why does an old email title carry through, where is bcc, when someone responds and includes another person why can't that carry over). The breezy chrome extension doesn't automatically carry emails over/find emails - that would be really cool.

Overall: The foundation of the tool is there and it's been an overall really good experience. It's a young company with a bright road ahead. They've recently made updates that needed to happen and I appreciate the ability to share what's missing, ask questions and have interaction with a human within a relatively reasonable time frame. I love being able to easily move people through stages, make changes to a req, the system etc easily. There aren't too many "things" to do to bog down the process.

There are still some kinks to iron out with duplicates, consolidation of contacts/associating them with other jobs in a better way, their messaging system (bcc, titling, when someone responds with others on the message to carry over...), being able to work through lists of people without the previous resume carrying over (little things that can make workflow more efficient).

Keep up the good work team Breezy!

Recommendations to other buyers: What is the best way to handle the CRM side of recruiting with proactive messaging?

Comments: Our firm has been using Breezy for a few months now. We have been researching and testing several systems as we are a start-up technology recruiting firm. So far Breezy has been very effective as it covers all of our needs as well as helps us to promote our positions and our company through it's integration with job-boards and social media. We have been very pleased and have quickly seen results that have made this a wise / cost-effective investment for our team.

Pros: Ease of use with drag and drop features for managing your candidate pipeline. Clean and well designed jobs portal that can also be embedded into our companies personal website. Adding resumes is very easy through uploading the resume as well as auto populating all of the information into a very well designed user-interface. Another cool feature is an extension that allows you to import LinkedIN profiles ; which is great for sourcer's to prioritize and follow-up with candidates that they have reached out to. Posting jobs is very quick and easy. Breezy will help to promote your positions by automatically posting to some of the top free job boards and also offers the option to purchase job slots from (LinkedIN , Monster , Careerbuilder , Stack Overflow etc) without the hassle of signing up for a subscription through the individual job boards.

Cons: I wish there was a way that you could manage and organize companies that you are currently working with as well as prospects. Perhaps there is a way but I have not had the opportunity to work with their support team to determine this.

Pros: Easy UI - easy to communicate and tailor selection criteria based on needs. Doesnt dive too deep so the learning curve isn't steep.

Cons: Sometimes I do want to be able to apply multiple filters when searching through candidates. Not an issue now as our database isn't that deep - but it will be in the future and am hoping I'll be able to slice and dice as necessary.

Overall: I liked Breezy a lot. Allows me to screen candidates on the fly from ipad, phone or computer. Easily can communicate with team members and also with candidates.

Pros: 1. Simple and easy to navigate all features

2. I can segregate admin panel in a different label as per my choice

3. Candidate selection process, internal communication among the selection team are pretty amazing

4. Job posting to end of hiring can track with a sigle platform without any issue.

Cons: 1. The website is pretty fast even in slow internet but sowing slow including bugs in apps.

2. Their no undo/redo button or option when I randomly checking and sorting applicants

3. Only Super Admin has all feature access.

4. Price for medium company like mine is little eexpensive compare to market.

Overall: I used to maintain this website for our company all recruitments for hiring software developers. I can easily send a link to a local job posting website to et potential applicant. End of the week, I did sorting all applied applicants and segregate as per my companies requirements. It's really an amazing website for hiring and recruitment solution like I haven't used before. Especially, without any hassle, I can keep track of every single applicant as per my preferred criteria and follow up without even sending an email as Breezy helps to do this even easier. Amazing!!!

Pros: Ease of use, collection of applicants in one place

Cons: Pipeline setup can't be modified for different positions, sometimes it freezes

Overall: Breezy has helped us turn our HR efforts from "piles of paper passed around the office" to "quick and virtual". My only request on the processes is that we could change the pipeline setup for different departments / positions. I love that it posts the jobs straight from one place, and collects applicants for easy viewing, easy movement through the system, and easy sharing with my team members.

Pros: Fairly intuitive and easy to figure out, easily within the budget for most smaller companies, career portal presence is fairly attractive if simple.

Cons: Lack of wide integration with other systems, if this will continue being able to modify and export custom fields really needs to be expanded. Street address really needs to be part of the candidate profile. I am not able to easily report across a population of candidates (why can't we export where people live easily?) and for my new hires I have to ask them to fill out address on a separate questionnaire and then I have to manually cut and paste the address into an export one-by-one. In an ideal world any custom field created could be put into a column and then exported.

Overall: Breezy has simplified and streamlined the recruiting process for a company where systems have been non existent before. It's given us a place to centralize our existing freelance staff and candidates and the ease of use allowed it to be quick to implement. I look forward to continuing enhancements, but some of the limitations may require some companies as they grow to consider other options.

Pros: It's been easy to use and customize. Good price for features. Easy ad refresh features without having to close and reopen ad. I've chatted help desk many times and they are always fast with an easy solution. Easy to upload submissions received external to Breezy and it reads their resume and puts them in format like others.

Cons: Nothing really. Although, once you input a scorecard you can't delete to nothing again, you need to keep some sort of rating. I'm a color coder so I would like to be able to color code applicants in the pipelines I've created for further customization. (ie: I upload recruiting agency submissions to keep all in one spot but would like at a glance to know which are agency which direct hire since fee associated). I've been using the Notes section to attach PDFs of candidates Test Score, References...maybe a documents tab so its easier for others to see if attachments? Just suggestions not problems. So far its been pretty easy.

Overall: easy to use, nice interface, good value for money, great tech support

Pros: The ability to create as many stages in the pipeline as are needed and that everyone can follow along/make updates to a candidate. The recent update in which we are able to see if a candidate has read a message that was sent to them is a great feature.

Cons: A minor issue but I wish the notes section could be editable after posting.

Overall: Breezy HR is very user friendly and is a great way to keep our candidates in the pipeline very organized. It has been great to see all of the features and changes that have been made over the last few months keeping the system relevant and updated.

I'd highly recommend Breezy HR to be the go-to ATS, especially if multiple people are part of the process. All information stays in one place and can be easily accessed by all involved.

Pros: The ease of use and customization of job postings/application screening questions. Simply put, you won't be lost when using Breezy, it's very easy to see where you stand in a job search process, your candidate flow, and generally tracking a candidate's experience in the hiring life cycle. It's also very customizable if you put in some work on the frontend to create screening questions that will self-screen candidates out of the applications and automate emails through each stage of the interview process.

Cons: Just a few small things in regards to candidate profiles that applied to two job postings and the email functionality (if you send questions over email and they reply to the body of your message instead of copy and pasting the questions in their own message when they respond, then you can't see their answers), but on the whole, it does just about you could want in an ATS.

Overall: An extremely manageable ATS that makes it easy to track where we're through multiple job openings.

Pros: Excellent Chrome extension for LinkedIn.

Easy to navigate.

Excellent response time from customer support.

Easy to add jobs and candidates.

Add candidates via resume (and parsing of resume).

Cons: Inability to re-order (drag & drop) candidates and documents.

Very small font onscreen font sizes for certain information.

Inability to drag & drop documents for upload (must navigate to and choose file).

Tiny candidate photos.

Adds a string of numbers to front of filename when uploading a candidate via resume.

Overall: We've been using Breezy for the past 30 days (after switching from another platform) and are very pleased so far. Easy to navigate. Very good customer support. Well organized screens. I believe this will be a good long-term solution for our company.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is excellent software, but there are always improvements that can be made. Overall, it's very easy to use, but the actually candidate screens could be laid out better (and it would be nice to be able to choose which page on the candidate screen we'd like to land on when opening a candidate), rather than it defaulting to resume (we'd prefer documents or contact details).

My experience with Breezy HR has been exceptional.

Pros: Breezy HR is without doubt the most user friendly recruitment software I have worked with. I have never had such candidate and process control.

The customer support offering has proven how effective online assistance really can be. The response to queries is timeous, helpful and informative. Really interactive.

The features and functionalities support all the requirements of an end-to-end recruitment cycle. For those who have worked with recruitment software before, this streamlined, easy-to-use product, will be like a breath of fresh air. JUST BREEZY!

Overall: Candidate and process control.

Creating of pipeline phases specific to position requirements.

Advertising linked both to company website as well as external platforms.

Candidate applications automatically uploaded into Breezy HR.

Development and uploading of recruitment specific templates / documentation.

Email correspondence with candidates through Breezy.

Bulk emailing, e.g. Regret letters.

Creating databases for future opportunities........

........to mention a few

Recommended. The pipeline workflow and free Bootstrap edition are the biggest benefits for my needs.

Pros: Breezy is very intuitive; I was using it within an hour with no training or demos. The drag-and-drop pipeline workflow is seamless. The resume parsing is accurate 90% of the time, doing as well as it can with some candidates' odd formatting of their resumes. The free Bootstrap version is what has truly sold me, as I don't have a pressing need for anything more at the moment, but 100% plan to upgrade once I outgrow Bootstrap.

Cons: There are sometimes one-too-many clicks to get to various settings options. However this may be more a function of most of the UI being so seamless that settings are clunky by comparison. Also there are sometimes responsiveness issues with the UI, like text stacking on itself and going outside its container. This is just a matter of working through and tightening up the backend code, which I'm sure will happen over time. Any other downfall is due to having the Bootstrap version which is my issue and not Breezy's.

I am such an dedicated fan of Breezy! It's the answer to all my problems. Love it!

Pros: This software is not only easy to use but consists of so many fabulous features. It can link to our company LinkedIn account and I am able to filter through the candidates quicker and easier than logging into LinkedIn every-time. It holds and stores all the information for each candidate such as CV's, contact information and I can email them from the candidates profile its just so simple!

As I am currently developing and forming a HR department, this software is going to be utilised more and more over the upcoming months and it will grow with me. Easy to manage and control I am just so happy with it.

Cons: With the free version, you can only use one role at a time so this wouldn't be very helpful to many businesses.

Overall: Everything! We are less likely to use recruiters and build and in-house operation using Breezy we are so excited! I am on the free subscription at the minute as I am just building but I will be switching this month to a paid version so we can make use of the other features.

Pros: We at Intelligent Creatures are impressed with the simplicity and efficiency that Breezy has made our hiring process.

The qualities that we find most positive are:

-Effortless to learn

-Refined candidate tracking system

-Layout is modern and aesthetically pleasing

-Chat Box respondents are quick and extremely helpful

-Scorecards are helpful as all supervisors can read them and keep track of what everyone is thinking in regards to hiring

-Provides job descriptions and other useful information when adding a new category

-Team discussions are great and convenient when needing feedback on a candidate

Cons: What could be improved:

- Navigation is slow (dragging & dropping, opening resumes)

-Copy & Paste is unreliable

-Scorecard would be better if we could customize it for different positions

-Frequent unnecessary emails about updates

-Could add reminders for when a candidate has been in one stage for a certain amount of time

Pros: Autoparsing of resumes into functional blocks (contact, cover letter, work history) make for easy recognition and triage of applicants. Kanban buckets for sorting application stages is a key feature that caught and kept us engaged. iOS app even speeds further - able to review resumes during off hours and the cycle is further accelerated.

Cons: App is not yet as robust as web interface yet I have confidence it will achieve parity in good time. Customer service responsive via web portal chat is timesaver (sorry putting more pros in the con section!)

Overall: Discovered this app just as we started a new candidate search. The web portal is a very elegant display and ability track sources and manage applicants into buckets and tags and offer self assessment surveys, team responses, schedule interviews and notes. Very feature rich yet most of all having a central repository for all aspects to funnel through is far easier and functional than via email and other methods.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great for small businesses without an HR Dept and possibly a good reason for larger ones to cut their HR overhead!

Comments: Breezy has helped automate 90% of the hiring process for us, now we can focus solely on reviewing high quality applicants.

Pros: - Free advertising of newly activated positions - Automated actions based on whichever step of the hiring process your candidate is in - Custom portal domain makes it seem more seamless

Cons: - Setting up a new position from scratch can be quite a lengthy process, but the fact that you can re-post positions makes this mostly hassle-free.

Comments: Breezy has really helped me to manage my hiring process and all of my communications with candidates in a visual way. It has really helped me stay organized! I think that what is the best about this program is that customer service is very responsive. While there are still definite bugs and things that don't always work correctly, I know that someone is trying to fix it (assuming I've said there's anything going on!). I would recommend Breezy to anyone who is a visual processor of information and wants all of their candidate information in one place.

Pros: Very easy to organize using drag and drop Upload resumes and keep them in one place All communications with candidate in one place Desktop notifications Email notifications are helpful when I'm out of office Excellent customer service

Cons: PDFs don't always upload correctly (they are working on this) Sometimes I have to go to candidate view rather than pipeline to look at candidates because it acts as if I'm trying to drag the candidate elsewhere Video conferencing could be easier (I don't know that there is time zone support, more time selections, link to video conference within candidate information, etc.) Emails come from a Breezy address and not my email; sometimes this leads to candidate emails going to spam at a higher rate

A great start - could be more intuitive.

Pros: Free for the scale at which we currently need it.

Cons: Many parts of it are not intuitive - like how to assign rights to different managers, for example. I finally figured out how to do it, but I have to invite someone, tell them to check their junk mail for the email, get them to do the verify process, and then once I find out they did it, I have to go in and make them a manager at that point. Why can't I just make them a manager when I invite them?

Overall: Overall this does exactly what we're looking for. However the help files are very thin. about 80% of the time when I search for info on a feature or how to do something I'd like to do, I come up with nothing. It's also annoying that changes often don't show up until the whole page is refreshed. Refreshing after every change is clunky. The auto-importing of information from a candidate's resume is fantastic but it doesn't do well with the more artistically formatted resumes. One candidate actually came in with the wrong name due to this. But in general I think this is a great start and is on track to becoming an essential tool.

Pros: The ease of the portal. The way it connects with our company website.

Overall: There are times when we get a resume that does not fit the position at that time, but is a good candidate. I have to make a note on my end of that persons name so when the right position opens up I have their resume and contact information. I call these resumes "On Deck". This would be a great added feature for my company and I am sure many others.

This portal has made my hiring much easier in all aspects.

Comments: Working in an international school in the Middle East can make the recruitment process even more of a challenge. Although we have only had the software for a short time, it is allowing us to consolidate procedures with a user-friendly interface and dovetail to our organisation's individual needs. Like all new software packages such as this, it makes sense have to have a dummy run to see how it responds. We asked for volunteers on the staff to apply for fictitious roles and spotted teething problems that way. These were all tick-boxes in setup...they seem right for our needs now! Some of their video responses were also hilarious! So, in short, and it's early days, we like what we see and look forward to reflecting on the process after the inevitable Term 2 recruitment comes to an end. What it certainly does is allow a group of us to keep tabs on applicants and where they are in the process, whereas before we relied upon one individual to manage the overview. That worked effectively, but this is much better and makes a great deal more sense! A problem shared is a problem halved, and in this case 'sixthed' (not really a word, but fits where we are!).

Hi Kieron -

We'll go ahead and make "sixthed" a totally acceptable word, especially when it means we're helping you efficiently distribute the recruiting workload!

Thank you for your Breezy review, it's great to hear such nice things from you! :)

Pros: It is very easy to use and has all the features you need to stay organized with candidate flow. As an experienced recruiter, it took me very little time to understand how to manage Breezy HR to it's fullest potential. You can basically take someone who might not have any recruiting experience and teach them correct recruiting processes with a tool like Breezy HR. One of the other attributes is their chat customer support feature, where you can provide a question and someone gets right back to you as if you were already connected. I definitely recommend this tool, which is way more reasonable than some of the other candidate tracking tools out there.

Cons: Not really any super big cons. I wish the copy of a candidate function to another job was a little bit more clear and easy. Not a big deal.

Overall: Makes my world easy as a recruiter and keeps me accountable in providing a good candidate experience.

It helps as to manage the candidates. I've had a very good support from your team.

Pros: - Client support

- Easy of use

- Visibility

- Questionnaires

- Scorecards

- Tags

- Team discussion, this help a lot to have a better understanding of the candidate to other recuiters

Cons: - Analytics. We need more information: how much time a candidate is in the process

- Pipeline modification: If you modificate a pipeline all the candidates will be at the first stage again

- Limited promotion

- Calls

- Scorecards, if you click outside the chart you lose all the comments and it is super anoying!

- If the recruiters do not have access to other positions, they cannot allocate passed a candidate from position A to position B.

- The scale of the Scorecard if very simple and it's not helping much (VP, Poor, Good, VG). I would like to have it from 1-10 or 1-7 at least.

Overall: -Speed in the recruitment process

-We get a better understanding of the profile

-Easy to communicate within the recruiters

- We avoid losing candidate in Excel sheets
