Pros: Ease of use, affordable, ability to save candidates information. Ability for other managers to use the data base directly, one click to send job out to multiple areas.

Cons: I find some recent changes very confusing - I think it was easier to use previously and I find myself getting a little lost.

Overall: I have used Applicant Pro for a few years now, and just recently it was one of the first things I added when I started my new job last year. I love the way everything is in one place. I can easily put our open position on-line, and it feeds out to the list of free job boards. I can also choose to send out to fee-based job boards with one click. All my managers can see the applicants, and all applicants are saved into the database. And the reporting (which I used for the first time last year) for Affirmative Action cuts down on hours of my time. I am a one -person department within a small bank. I do it all - and this makes my recruiting function so much simpler, faster and streamlined. With one click, I can also send the job to our state DOL, as well as our Veterans and People with Disabilities reps. Anyone who has the authority to see an applicant can make notes directly on that applicant, and rate the applicant for future. We have one position that turns over frequently (Teller) just because we have so many - and we can go right back to our notes on-line for those candidates who impressed us who we did not hire. In short, it's one of the best tools I've used in my HR career.

Recommendations to other buyers: Go back to the way it was before recent changes. I like the old fashioned cut and past of a job onto the data base. Also, when setting up users, it is confusing how the screens come up. It should just automatically come up to either the jobs or the candidates instead of having to set it up to do so.

Pros: Easy to understand, functionality, many features to pick from. I have checked many systems, none could offer what Applicant Pro does for the money. Easy to use, houses endless applications, employees can use their mobile devices to apply, parses resumes into the applications, you can design your own reports or use the standard ones they have ready with a few clicks. Opportunities are limitless. They are always adding new features at no cost. Lastly, their customer service is second to none! Immediate responses to your questions, are always willing to help in any way possible, very friendly, professional staff who know what they are doing. Absolute best anywhere.

Cons: Wish you could design something that if people out of the area or out of the country apply for the position we are recruiting for could be flagged as ineligible. Example, recruiting for a position that is onsite in the Minneapolis/St Paul areas, and we get applications from New York or Europe and Asia - these could be sent an automatic reply that they are ineligible for the position without having to manually do so.

Thank you so much for your feedback, Karen! I would be happy to work with you to utilize our disqualification and automatic email features to help you sort out ineligible applicants and save you time! We love working with you and appreciate your business!

Pros: The Assessment Testing is one of the best features, it helps find individuals whose beliefs and core values are similar to ours. In the healthcare industry we want compassionate employees and this assessment tool helps us find those caring individuals who are here for the right reasons.

Cons: Would like for it to pull in more employees when applicants stop applying. Every now and then we would hit a dry spell, wish you had Recruitment Consultants to better aid in reaching out to potential candidates.

Overall: After converting to ApplicantPRO and utilizing their Assessment testing, there was a significant difference in the applicants we were hiring. They were more professional, honest, had good work ethic, and reliable. The assessment helped weed out those who did not fit our Mission and Values. Our agency went from a turnover rate of between 65%-70% to 17%-32%, within 1 year of implementing ApplicantPRO, saving us over $100,000 a year per cost of hiring. After 2 years using ApplicantPRO almost all of our employees received numerous positive feedbacks from our clients, have been with us for longer than 9 months and continued to be exceptional employees. ApplicantPRO made a huge difference in our agency and I highly recommend them to anyone who is struggling to find the right employees.

It's a great tool, not only to track of new candidate but to sort and update working candidates.

Pros: It's a turn-key system that is user friendly enough to start using with very little training. Help is just a click away and response time is almost immediate. AppPro has made it easy to keep track of a multitude of applicants with the availability of Note-Taking which you can easily review just by hovering over "notes" without having to open the file. Another great feature is "letter templates". This feature helps to cut-down the response time. Lastly, the ability to simply archive a candidates file with a dropdown or button allows me to keep by candidate list clean.

Cons: No negatives. Most of the concerns have been addressed as AppPro is always improving their system to make the program more user friendly. In the short time I've been using AppPro, I've been amazed at the amount of positive changes made. I expect that will continue as they seem to work diligently on new ideas and improvements.

Pros: It fits our needs. It's very user-friendly. We make anywhere between 75 and 100 hires per year and it suits both my needs on the recruiting side and also the needs of the hiring managers who use it.

Cons: I sometimes wish there was more that I could do as an administrator - the ability to modify the requisition myself would've been nice, but Applicant Pro's customer team did it so quickly that it's not an issue. I also really wish there was a way to mask applicant names to the hiring managers. We live in a small place and while we do our best to ensure non-discriminatory hiring, it's really difficult when everyone knows someone who knows someone.

Overall: It's often true that you get what you pay for, but in the case of Applicant Pro, you get a great deal for a great price. Their customer service is second to none. I recently wanted to change the structure of our job requisition, which required help from their service team. They did the changes within 24 hours and also gave some great advice. Another big win for Applicant Pro!

Recommendations to other buyers: I am still astounded my the level of service we get. Applicant Pro's team is amazing!

Comments: ApplicantPro is the best applicant tracking system I have used (and I have used systems that are much more costly). I would particularly recommending it to any small to medium company, or any company that's cost-conscious. It is the perfect tool for our regional nonprofit (18 locations and about 3,000) employees.

Pros: The pricing is great and the service is amazing! Our rep Steve, as well as the support team, are phenomenal - responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. The conversion from iApplicant to ApplicantPro was virtually seamless, and whenever we have questions, they are so quick to respond with assistance. The service and support are probably better than any vendor I've ever worked with.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Recommendations to other buyers: I don't think you'll regret it!

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you or your team going forward. --Heidi

Pros: Now we can text and mass email applicants. Love this! It saves us so much time. When we have a job fair it's so easy to send out a message to all. Or, for our future job openings, it allows me to email those applicants and let them know we now have an opening.

Cons: I would like the option to type in a first or last name and see the names related to it in case I didn't spell it correctly. It would also be nice to have a mass text option, to text a large group of applicants, rather than only a mass email option. The younger generation seems to prefer text to email.

Overall: Not sure of all of the benefits we may have but we do have the text and email options.

Vendor Response

by ApplicantPRO on March 30, 2018

Thank you for your feedback, Jill! I am glad to hear that the texting and email features help you to save time when contacting your applicants. I would love to hear more about what type of information you would like to text your candidates en masse. I will reach out to you directly so that we can review your needs.

Thanks again!

Comments: We chose Applicant Pro out of about 5-6 vendors. We looked for OFCCP compliance, ease of use by ourselves and our applicants, scalable, reasonable cost, and robust reporting. We have been really happy with this product! It helped us get control of our hiring process and accurately track and document our candidates. The system is OFCCP compliant which was a major concern for us. The posting process is quite good and allows you to track where you are advertising your position - and it allows for the social media posting as well. Though the system allows for the proper tracking and documentation, we can adjust how we use the system for maximum ease for our managers. The reporting is extremely robust including standard reports for EEO and reporting for the new veteran/disability requirements for government contractors. The candidate interface is very simple to use, which was another area of concern for us. The customer service is excellent - they have a chat process and they have been so responsive when I have questions - so you don't get left hanging. For a smaller government contractor this is an excellent solution - can't say enough good things about it.

Pros: Cost effective, easy to use, great reporting capability, great customer service, great posting capability.

Cons: The initial training was a little sparse but the system is very intuitive to use and very easy. I wish they had a manual instead of the topic documents in the help area. Alot of times the topic I enter into the search area on the help page has no results - usually because of the way I've asked the question. So I wind up using the chat function instead. The customer service with the Chat function is outstanding they never leave you hanging!

Pros: Applicant Pro has been a great applicant tracking system (ATS) for us. It is user friendly and simple for hiring managers to go in and quickly review resumes, and it provides plenty of robust tools for our recruiting team to find the right talent. Tools such as texting candidates and built-in solutions for facilitating background tests has made thing easier for both our recruiting team and the candidates themselves.

Cons: It doesn't offer seamless onboarding integration with our HRIS (Paycom), but that hasn't proved to be a big obstacle.

Comments: Applicant Pro is easy to use. They have great customer support and are always friendly and able to help me with whatever I need. They also are always updating and finding new ways to make it easier to use. It used to take us a long time to go through applications and now it is a very small portion of what I do, which frees up my time to get other things accomplished.

Pros: The product is customizable, which is helpful to make it work the best for me. But they also have all the legal requirements already in place, which also makes my job easier.

Cons: Can't think of anything. They are always looking for ways to improve, so some of the things I didn't realize were a problem are usually made easier for us.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great product. I would recommend it because it is so easy to use, they are always looking to improve and it is customizable for our company.

Inexpensive and effective software, makes posting jobs & tracking applicants easy.

Pros: The ability to post through multiple job boards at no additional cost is a huge value. I also like the interface as its pretty streamlined and easily customized. The support is also great!

Cons: Manually adding applicants is more difficult than it should be. There is no resume-parser that other software systems have that pulls text from a resume, LinkedIn profile, Etc. As a result, manual entry takes some time and isn't perfect.

Overall: I really enjoy using the job posting resources that come with ApplicantPRO.

Brennon, thank you so much for the review! I am so glad that you are finding value from our job posting and the interface. And isn't our support awesome? Speaking of Support Shanelle reached out to you personally to walk you through the things you listed as cons here in your review. I hope you received her email. She had an awesome short cut for adding manual applicants! Hopefully it will make adding those some much easier. Also, she sent you some info on parsing. We DO have resume parsing! If you have questions after you read over the info, let Shanelle know. She can walk you through it. Again, thanks so much for taking time to send this review. It means so much! --Heidi

Pros: I have used ApplicantPro for close to ten years now with two different employers. I made sure to make the switch here at my current employer to ApplicantPro as soon as I came on board. Has all the bells and whistles needed comparable to the big name brand ATS solutions at about half the cost. Great service if and when needed and very easy to use. Most impressive is they do not rest on their laurels as they constantly strive to update and improve their offerings.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that more people are not aware of the product and how great it is. They should have much more market share!

Overall: From sales to service to day to day use no complaints here. More bang for your buck than any ATS I have used.

Pros: You set your own perimeters for the type of individual you're looking for and Applicant Pro does the heavy lifting.

Cons: I can never figure out how to print the entire application. It usually prints a fraction of the job experience. Resumes print fine but not everyone uploads a resume. Also, I wish there was a way to receive an email from Applicant Pro when you've selected a candidate as "potential", and haven't changed the status to "hired", after a couple of days to remind you that you liked them. We get busy, recieve a lot of applications, and often lose the candidate we remembered liking a week prior.

Overall: Ease of use. It saves valueable time. Applicant Pro does the heavy lifting.

Teresa, thank you so much for your review. It was great to talk to you today. I am so glad that we were able to get your concerns resolved right away.

That darn print button! You aren't the only one that misses it. In fact a different position for it will be rolling out soon enough. But I'm glad you can now see the entire application when you print them out.

I also hope the status filters we discussed today will help you be able to sort your applicants better, so no one gets lost. There were quite a few applicants for each job, which means our sourcing is definitely helping!

If you have any other questions, please let me know! I want to make sure you are taken care of. It's like we always say...the difference between good and great software isn't the technology, it's the team that is there to back it up when you run into a problem. I'm glad I could be the one to help you today.

Pros: ApplicantPro is very easy to learn and very easy to use -- our supervisors are very happy with the ease of use.

Cons: The only thing we wish was available would be for the ability of the applicant to log in and check the status of their application.

Overall: Changed the game for us -- previously we had paper applications that had to be manually reviewed by HR and the hiring supervisors. Additionally, we have a much larger candidate pool now.

Comments: Before using ApplicantPro, our business was using solely paper applications. Not only was this a complete waste of paper, but our applicants had to come all the way out to our office to apply. After using ApplicantPro, we have streamlined our application process. It is now very easy to apply for a job with us, allowing for a larger volume of applications resulting in a bigger pool for us tho choose from. We are extremely happy with ApplicationPro and would recommend it to anyone wanting to veer away from a standard paper application.

Overall: As an HR department of one, ApplicantPro makes my job sooo much easier! ApplicantPro does so many things - from helping me create job postings and posting them to various job boards in one click to filtering and screening applicants and running reports. I went from posting our vacancies on each individual job board to posting a job in less than 5 minutes. I get notified via email when qualified candidates apply (but you can turn this feature off and just check the system periodically if you like) instead of dozens of individual applicants flooding my inbox. Then the report feature---no more excel spreadsheets--I simply select the type of report I need in ApplicantPro. ApplicantPro has been a game changer for me.

Pros: It is simple and easy to use with high functionality. I highly recommend it. It's easy to understand and price is good with no contracts! It posts to several job boards from the site itself which saves so much time. It has great reporting capabilities as well. Try the 30 day free trial.

Cons: The only con I can think of is that it requires an applicant to create a username and password, or provides them one. So if you have someone who tries to apply again it will require them to login, which may not be a bad thing.

Pros: It's easy to use. Intuitive. Has most of the features I need & want. Customer Support is superlative.

Cons: I love everything about ApplicantPro except for two things:

1. They need to update their "Help" documents (which are plentiful, thorough, and useful) to match the current version of the software. Frequently, the Help doc mentions old titles and fields that can sometimes be a little confusing. Presumably, they are working on getting these updated to the recently upgraded software.

2. It's not very easy, if you have different versions of a job posting that have the same exact job title, to get an applicant who applied for one version of it into the other version of the job (sometimes there's a reason you need to close the first version of a job and open a second version of it). Applicant Pro explained to me why this is (a compliance reason), but it's still difficult, and I've had to do it a couple of times. Customer Support gave me a workaround solution, though it's still not ideal.

Overall: It helps me to easily post job ads and manage applicants.

Pros: Easy to use, provides excellent tracking info, can create reports, extensive connections to other job boards.

Cons: Some complications arise when trying to route with or through other Talent Networks....not necessarily Applicant Pro's fault....it's a complicated process with many outside hands involved.

Overall: I have used several systems in the past, but prefer Applicant Pro because it is very easy to use, the support team is quick and effective, plus friendly. They will help you muddle through some tricky situations as needed and have a wonderfully wide range of job board sources available to extend your search. It has most of the features that I want/need and you cannot beat the price. Great bang for the buck and very responsive to your needs!

Recommendations to other buyers: Best system I've found at the most affordable price. Other high end systems offer mostly the same product, but at ridiculous prices that a company like ours simply cannot afford. Finding ApplicantPro has been a blessing to us!

Hi Randall!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. It helps us create an even more successful product for our clients.

Pros: Quick background check turnaround

Ability to post to several different job boards automatically

Ability to have start-finish process of recruiting all in one spot

messaging both email and text available

Cons: Sorting/searching could be better. There is a status next to applicants names that show when a message has been sent. It would be preferable if it was hidden when an automatic email was sent and only show when someone sends a manual email.

Pros: Has everything I need at a much less cost. Was using Taleo before and ApplicantPro performs better and though it is never needed customer service is there when I need it and easy to reach and understand.

Keeps adding features and improving and never rests on its laurels. Easy to navigate and set up perfectly to my liking. Great reachout to other job boards as well!

Cons: N/A Honestly I have not experiecned any negative aspects to he product.

Pros: Easy to use. Simple to explain. Nice way to collaborate on ratings of candidates with the star system. The notes section is very helpful. Helps us keep up with government regulations on hiring.

Cons: Posting a job the first couple times is a little tricky but then it goes fast once you understand how the questions, template and post work together.

Overall: We've been using this software for two years and continue to be very impressed with the platform and the customer service team. The interface is very intuitive. There are many users within the firm and everyone is able to pick up how to use ApplicantPro with minimal instruction. The AppPro team is always improving the software. Whenever we have a problem or want to make a change, they are quick to respond, knowledgeable and professional. I don't think there's been one thing we've asked that they were not able to accommodate. This has really improved our applicant tracking process.

I would place their customer service up there with Disney Industries. Applicant Pro also enhances their system regularly and adds amazing features that helps the HR Department of ONE seam like a much larger department. I would recommend to any organization that wants to move their applicant tracking in to the 21st century.

Overall: Whether you are owner or HR Manager, this tool makes managing applicants easy as an easy-bake-oven. I have it setup with qualifying questions; the place to hold all the applicant info, customization to your hiring process; work ethic and cognitive aptitude testing really gives you a good feel for that applicant. Then you can schedule any drug screening, etc. This is a great one stop shop for me as a business owner. Highly recommend this!

Pros: This is a great product for a small budget.

-Post to job boards in one click

-Customize what access you want your hiring managers to have

-Easy to use for all user levels

-Update status, send bulk emails very easily

-Everything is customizable

-Customer Service is excellent from implementation on

-Simple system without all the bells and whistles a small business doesn't need

Cons: None for me. For a larger company with a lot of openings it may not be enough. For anyone that hires only a few positions at a time it is great.

Overall: Great affordable ATS for smaller companies.

Thank you for taking the time to review ApplicantPro! I'm glad to hear that the ability to post to multiple job boards with just one click is making your hiring process easier. Allowing different access levels for your team is great! We understand that not all users need access to everything we have to offer. Our system has many customizable options that allow us to meet the hiring needs of companies of all sizes. I would love to speak with you about additional options we have available as your company grows!

Thanks again!

Comments: We are very happy with Applicant Pro at our company. We have tried several ways to accept applications online without any major cost increase. The solutions we came up with were either difficult for the applicant to use, or didnt work with our hiring process. Switching to Applicant Pro allowed us to accept user friendly applications as well as work with our hiring process. Applicant Pro was also one of the more cost effective solutions that I researched. I would definitely reccomend them to anyone who needs a digital hiring solution.

Cons: That it isn't compatible with our payroll software. However, this is our issue not an applicant pro issue.

Comments: We have been using Applicant Pro as our sole ATS for almost a year. We were struggling with ease of use, lack of customer service and overall dysfunction with our prior ATS. I met with a Applicant Pro rep at a conference and was in awe of how simple the system looked. We finally decided to move over and were excited to learn it was going to cost a fortune.

The whole system is super easy to use. Getting everything set up was a breeze. We used our CTO as a tester before we posted any live jobs, and he was more than impressed. The feedback I've gotten from hiring manager throughout the company is all very similar. They love how easy it is for them to log on and review applicants.

We had a huge issue with our prior ATS with applicants needing technical help during the application process. I would sometimes speak with 5-10 applicants a day trying to troubleshoot and walk them through the application. I have not had a single applicant contact me regarding any technical difficulties during the process.

My absolute favorite thing about Applicant Pro is there AMAZING customer service. We have been impressed from day one with their professional and friendly employees providing us with the utmost awesome help and service. I place a help ticket into the system multiple times a week with various questions. I always get a quick and correct response. If I am feeling like I'd rather speak with someone directly I always get a quick pick up and immediate answer. I don't believe I have ever, not once, been on hold with their customer service team.

I would highly recommend using Applicant Pro for your new ATS.

Comments: We did demos of 7 different AT systems and chose AppPro. We have been so happy with it. Its a great product and we are glad we made the right choice!

Pros: Its easy to use, user friendly, and has tons of features. We love the star rating system. Its so easy to just glance at the application list and see your top choices. We have a lot of people who are not very technology proficient, but they are able to sue with with no problem. The price is excellent and AppPro has the same features as the much more expensive software! I have recommended it to a number of colleagues.

Cons: My main complaint is that the help is sometimes too basic and sometimes too technical and detailed. Thats not a huge issue though.

Every time I think it can't get easier, it does.

Having Screening services that you can order and get the results directly from the applicant's screen. ProScreening is one of the best Screening services I've ever worked with. So many Pros, it's hard to list them all.

Cons: All information does not get passed to integration. You have to download all your documents manually.

Pros: Everything is done from one portal. Jobs are pushed out to any job board you use, templates are easy to create and save along with job questions. Very easy to use!!

Cons: There are 2 views to the software. If you go under view jobs the layout is better than under the view applicants, wish they were both combined with all features available under one layout. People who don't use the software a lot can get confused. Also, incomplete apps are in the reports section. They should be under applicants, just a different tab.

Overall: AplicantPro made my job way easier and freed up my time for other HR responsibilities.

Pros: Customer Service, assigned account manager, chat support, constant improvements

Cons: It is just a matter of time as their product development team tries to tackle suggestions for applicant search function by location, skill set, etc.

Overall: We just finished out 30 day free trial and it is more than we expected for the low price tag it comes with. It comes with unlimited users and job postings and pricing is based on the company's size with customized features you can add on but aren't necessary to get the job done. App Pro's customer service team and availability is top notch. They make time to answer questions fully the first time and provide step-by-step instructions if needed even though the system is super user-friendly. Product Development is on their A game and constantly performing updates and improving the process with suggestions from their users.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take advantage of the free trial. Your account rep will set it up according to your recruiting process and assist you with the customization. Then pay annually as you will save 2 months in fees, but if you need to cancel they will refund the prorated amount unused.

Vendor Response

by ApplicantPRO on November 13, 2015

Elaine, thanks for your review. As a job seeker, your experience with our system is very different from HR or hiring manager users. We use job seeker feedback in our ongoing efforts to make the application process as easy as possible, while living within the constraints given to us by clients who demand the collection of long applications.

Our career sites, and apply process, are mobile responsive but even the most mobile friendly system can be difficult if the client requires 500 questions just to apply for a job. This can be made easier using our integrations with Indeed & LinkedIn. Also our 2-stage apply process makes the initial application for 90% of job seekers less than 3 minutes, and saves the longer application for the finalists who are actually being considered for the job.

The rest of your feedback will be passed along to the client as most of the confusion with instructions and job requirements are the result of client defined content. Thanks again for your feedback

Comments: Applicant Pro is always making improvements in design and functionality. We have had good responses when we seek customer support and usually get solutions to our unique issues if we call in.

Pros: Ability to easily manage access to managers and others on interview committee's, five star rating system of candidates, assigning values to job specific questions to help us eliminate unqualified candidates, the ability to not just ask one set of questions when an applicant applies but ask specific questions for each job posting, ability to post our job openings to the state job boards without us having to login to a different site and post separately.

Cons: Not much, they seem to make improvements every so often that keep them at the top of the industry.

Pros: Nowadays to compete in any industry you need high skilled employees. But it is not easy to choose right employee for right position. Applicant Pro is my best assistant in recruitment process. Before Applicant pro whenever there is a need for a new employee I was sharing job advertisement in different platforms and I had regularly check the progress. It was time consuming and preventing my other works to be done. But now ApplicantPro is doing all of this and provides large statistics which helps me to choose right person. If the job needs additional skill I can set assessments and check results before interview. It is the best feature of ApplicantPro. Thanks to this feature I evaluate most of the applications and choose the most suitable ones for interview.

Cons: Video resume is a great feature but sometimes is not enough. Because candidates could prepare answers or shoot videos several time in order to give right answer. It would be great if ApplicantPro had built in live video interview feature.

Overall: ApplicantPro is saving my time while making decision. It also helps me to make right choice by evaluating unsuitable candidates.

I will record and send you a quick video to show you how to utilize this feature. I hope that you will find this helps to streamline your process.

Pros: ApplicantPro has all the basic, necessary functions for tracking applicants plus a few extra nice touches, like text messaging options. It does the job well. It is more affordable than some of the bigger ATS packages I have used in the past.

Cons: Navigation is still a bit clunky - not completely intuitive for other users who don't use it frequently.

Applicant Pro is a very easy access site that our company uses to hire teachers and camp counselors.

Pros: I like that I can download an applicant's resume or read manually from any device for accessibility.

It is the most efficient way to contact new hires. Some employment software does not allow you to read and print. We can do both!

Overall: We have a large range of families we serve. We constantly have to hire new employees to keep up with our gym memberships and child care sites!

Comments: ApplicantPro is a great solution and is managed by even better people. Our company is experiencing tremendous growth and we found ourselves in need of an exceptional Applicant Tracking System. I didn't have to even shop around because I already knew the people of ApplicantPro and their personal caliber led me straight to ApplicantPro. As an HR professional ApplicantPro has been involved in the HR community, not to sell their product but to give back to the profession. They are non-aggressive, quick to respond, and have impeccable follow through.

Our recruiting approach is very proactive and we don't post a lot of positions externally because we have a massive pipeline of talent that we already have an eye one. ApplicantPro gives us the flexibility to manage our recruiting in one single place and stay on top of all the people we are proactively speaking with.

I would recommend ApplicantPro to those who need an ATS with integrated background checks, as it is an easy to use product, has great features, but even better people behind the scenes to make your experience painless.

Comments: I used this product for a period of 3 years before I left the company I was with. It had a really good ROI for the solution offered to my company. The functionality gave the hiring managers and HR staff the tools necessary to come out of the stone age (manual paper process) and utilize a paperless system of tracking and streamlining the hiring process. Overall it increased the efficiency of the department and affected the bottom line of the company.

Pros: Ease of use. Some bells and whistles found in more expensive solutions. Cost. Separate supervisory log-in. Applicant screening options. Propagation to free online resources.

Cons: Would like to see more CRM functionality

Recommendations to other buyers: Great product. If you are looking for solutions definitely look at this option.

Pros: Since we started our free trial, we have had a ton of support from the team at ApplicantPro. We love how the system works and find it very easy to track all of our candidates.

Cons: Like any applicant tracking system, you get a mixture of candidates. We've seen a lot of candidates that are not qualified, but I think once we learn the system better we will know which questions to ask and how to use the disqualifying application.

I have been working with applicant pro for over a year and its great. It is very usher friendly.

Cons: Honestly, I haven't found anything that I do not like about the program. Overall, I think it is very helpful and when looking for potential applicants it's very user-friendly and if I have a question customer service reps are always helpful.

Overall: Hiring possible applicants.

Pros: I have yet to not find a good applicant for any position I have posted for. As I came into my position for a company that was already using Applicant Pro I didn't go through any training and was able to figure out every essential function just by nosing around.

Overall: It allows me to find strong candidates in a very competitive industry and after the initial set up and building job descriptions could not be quicker or easier to use.

Pros: One of the main features I really like about ApplicantPRO is the variety of job boards it pushes out to. Once you create your initial login for those boards, like the state workforce sites, then all you do is post right through the system, and they all get posted. It eliminates a lot of the time and hassle going to each individual site.

Cons: No Applicant tracking system is perfect, but truthfully, I can't think of any major cons with ApplicantPRO. You can easily customize to fit your needs!

Pros: easy to use - incorporates the basics of an applicant tracking system - no more, no less. Perfect for the mid-sized company like us who averages about 20-25 open positions per month.

Cons: would love to see it integrate with Outlook or another interview scheduling/calendaring program.

Overall: Structured to be easy to manage applicants/candidates. Our hiring managers find it very simple to administer and reporting is simple. It is a great value at a low/reasonable price. We were up and running within a day or so; no need for weeks of customization/development. Great product!

Recommendations to other buyers: Love it, keep it simple!!

Overall: Most important is the time saved reviewing applications prior to using the system. We are able to track new hires from start to finish. The ease of communicating with applicants helps to build our reputation as an employer in the community.

Comments: When evaluating AT Systems our due diligence included many systems; including premiere names in the field. We selected AP due to it's simplicity for end users and the oversight and control it provides for administrators. Our initial launch was well received with the existing hiring managers and more recently we acquired a competitor who was using a system from one of the big recruiting boards. They have complimented AP over and over on it's friendliness and ease compared to the big recruiting board system

Our experience with the help desk and technical support has been responsive, quick to fix and very helpful with suggestions to improve applicant acquisition.

One slight downside is end users would like to set up "files" in the system to place applications by whatever criteria they want to.

This was a great executive decision to make. All Administrative offices should have Applicant Pro.

Pros: I love how detailed this application is. It offers many options and you can add your own options based on true scenarios that often happens when reviewing applications or recruiting applicants for job opportunities.

Cons: It gives you very limited time. When it is not in use for a few minutes, you must re-enter your username and password. I understand this is great due to confidentiality.

Overall: Efficiency.

Thank you for your glowing feedback, Jerron! We offer a lot of options and I am glad to hear that you have found these valuable when address your company's recruiting needs. ApplicantPro does have an auto logout function for security purposes. However, this should only occur after 45 minutes of inactivity in the system. I will contact you directly so that we can resolve this issue for you. Thank you again!

Pros: I love using AplicantPro. It is easy to use and navigate, even for a non-hr person like me. It allows you to easily create a job posting and get it up on many popular job boards. Once you have the applicants you can easily sort through them and make notes about each, then mark them as a potential candidate or not qualified. This system is with you through the entire hiring process and makes the whole thing much easier.

Cons: It can feel a little daunting when entering your first job posting, but after you've done it once or twice it is very easy.

They also are up to date on all EEOC Compliance wording and requirements. Reports are detailed and easy to create. They keep us update on how to use their software, any new features, and the best way to keep up to date with EEO Compliance with webinars every few weeks which gives us an opportunity to ask questions and understand how to better use their product.

Comments: My team and I spent about 6 weeks reviewing 9 different vendors for online applications. We had sample reports, sample usage...in other words very thorough research. ApplicantPro was by far the best product. Easy to use, tons of standard reports and searching capabilities, easy from a applicant perspective, easy from a hiring managers perspective, great capability for knock-out questions and screening. ...and to top it off was priced as competitively as you could want. We have received over 6000 applications so far in 2016 and without ApplicantPro, we'd be waist deep in paper and mired in application review. There aren't many products or services that I'll recommend, but this is definitely one.

Comments: The software and the people backing it up are great. it does exactly what you would like it to and even though it may not be as robust feature rich as some of the biggest players in the ATS market place it definitely holds its own. The bare bones of what it does is exactly what our company needed. It gives remote managers access without charging for additional users. It helped us create a team environment when it came to our hiring process. Customer service has always been quick and helpful. The chat window helps us resolve issues quickly. I wish there were some additional standard reports but their team has helped us get the data we are after.

Comments: Easy to use, but downsides are re-posting positions. If you can, I haven't found a way, to copy and paste a position without the candidates rolling over. I know that templates can be created, but I have had issues with those as well. I also wish that the communications to candidates would not be sent immediately in the event one needs to be pulled back for one reason or another.

The Onboarding and Background / Drug screen process is super easy to use and have appreciated the very little amount of time needed to send these out. If I have any issues, the customer service team has always been on top of things and super helpful as well!

Overall: I used Applicant Pro's 30 day free trial and I was hooked. It was so much more robust then the applicant tracking program I was using. Tracy Musbach has been wonderful in her responses to me when I have questions and she has done a great job navigating me through the site.

Comments: Applicant PRO has made posting jobs and applicant tracking so much easier for me. I hire for our corporate offices, manufacturing and sales offices nationwide and using applicant PRO is great, efficient, easy to use and keeps everything organized and in one place. Their customer service is great! Any questions I may have are answered quickly and thoroughly. They are also constantly updating and improving their product to make my recruiting easier (including adding more job posting websites)! I'm thankful I started using ApplicantPRO for recruiting! It has made my job a lot easier.

The software is well detailed and easy to use.

Pros: I love the fact Applicant Pro posts all the ads for me. The system is really fast and efficient. It is also very easy to learn from a users perspective. My managers seem to be very happy to recruit with Applicant Pro. The training documents are great as well.

Cons: The ease of use as an administrator is really good, but at times I find myself in the wrong place or not knowing how to add more for my company. The training documents are very good and are helpful if you know how to search through the documents to find what you are searching for.

Overall: Each user saves a great deal of time by using this software.

Comments: Have used used this company since 2011 and we continue to use today.

PROS: Easy learning tools. Many monthly updates and features to help with application process. Excellent customer service and very quick to respond to any questions whether by phone of via email.

CONS: On system the application set up is easy to read but if you have to print the application your questions and answers are confusing to read. Need extra attention to detail and being able to tell the difference between the questions and answers.

Wouldn't mind the application having a better printed lay-out version.
