Pros: Hirehive is by far the best recruitment system I've experienced in terms of ease of use. It's clear the team at Hirehive care about the UX from the perspective of both the Candidate and Recruiter, and they are committed to ensuring users have the least amount of clicks to perform tasks, which pleases me! And best of all is that it is both configurable and customizable at Admin level; something you don't always get with this kind of software, giving me full control over how my hiring managers use the system, and how I categorize my candidate pipeline. At a basic functionality level, it does exactly what a good ATS should do, but there are little extras that make my life much easier so I can get on with the other element of my HR role. Some of my favorite product features include:

I can move candidates between jobs if I think an applicant is more suited to a different role.

At a glance, the pipeline is very clear to see per role, so I can clearly see what stage I'm at for each role.

Quick and easy reporting which means I don't have to do any analysis at my end to gather insights.

I can respond to candidates via email and HH will track this.

Quick and easy to make notes on candidates and attach files. This might sound like a standard feature but I've used other systems that haven't supported this.

I can shortlist with just one or two clicks.

Setting up interviews is easy and intuitive from an admin perspective and also for the hiring manager.

Cons: There may be some work required to make the mobile version a little easier to navigate - perhaps some bugs here

Overall: The biggest benefit to me as the sole recruiter in my company is the time the platform saves me in terms of communicating with candidates and internally with Hiring Managers. My policy is to respond to every single candidate that applies to us here at CurrencyFair, and Hirehive allows me to do send a personalized email, with the relevant tailored message to each candidate, with only a few clicks.

Pros: We can list a number of pros to using Hirehive, certainly one of the things is that it is very cost effective, so it makes good sense to use it for even a few jobs. We have used it to hire over 100 peole in the past year and it certainly can cope with high volume activity - obviously we've managed thousands of CV through it.

Another good thing about is the dashboard summay, you can see where you are on each job you have open at a glance and then can click into a role for more data if you need it.

The automated list to job boards and to social media sites is a bit thing too - saves huge time for us so that definitely a positive.

Cons: a lot of the cons have been ironed out over the past year, as they have made really good improvements to a number of the areas.

Overall: We have been using HireHive (previously Zartis) for over 3 years, it's a key software management tool for us.

There are a number of features that we like, its cloud based so it doesn't matter where we are located, we can log in and manage our activity. It is also very time efficient, a lot of the functionality is automated we particularly like the fact that it links to social medial sites and job boards with just one click, so that saves us huge time.

Over the past year, we have seen really great improvements to the site, things like their reporting functionality is much better and you can now run a variety of reports of the data that is there, and even display it in graphic format, so nice images for our reports to clients.

So far candidates seem to find it easy to operate too which is really important for us.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is just so easy to get set up with an account, its definitely worth trying it for a few months so see the different it can make to managing the recruitment process.

Pros: Love the flexibility around upgrading my current plan, we have the option to change this on a monthly basis.

Very easy to add new candidates to the system that have come through a different job board.

Very intuitive and easy to use.

The support team are always online to answer any questions I have had in the past.

Cons: Would be great if the system would flag duplicate email addresses. Sometimes candidates can apply to the same job a number of times if I renew a post.

Overall: After requesting a trial of HireHive 6 months ago. I decided after a brief run through of the system, that this was exactly what I was looking for as Recruitment Manager of Westbourne IT. We cancelled our subscription to our previous candidate management system and signed up. HireHive makes managing the interview process easy and transparent for all our admin users and hiring managers. It allows me to send emails directly to candidates at the click of a button based on whether we are progressing or regretting them. All email templates can be customised to our liking. HireHive is the best recruitment tool that I have used and would highly recommend it.

Hi Aylmer,

Thanks for your review of HireHive. We are delighted to that you are enjoying using our software. Regarding flagging duplicate email addresses - you can now see if a candidate has applied for a position numerous times in the candidate profile. There will be a list of all past applications indicating that the candidate has applied previously. We hope this helps.

Pros: Easy to use. Low cost. Does what it says on the tin.

Cons: Replying to notes and emails from candidates could be made easier.

Overall: The system was super fast to set up and learn. We didn't want to invest a lot of time in a new system so this was important for us. We've been using it for about 3 years and wouldn't be able to manage our recruitment without it.

Recommendations to other buyers: We're really happy with it.

Pros: We like the speed and realibilty as well as the UI. Publishing of the new roles takes 30 seconds to become live so need to waiting for a long time. Also applicants can be tag very easily in system and you can see their CV immeditaly in browser rather than downloading and then openning again. So in over all HireHive is fast, clean ,reliable and functional and I don't know what else you need to have in order to do your work. Also it's affordable.

Cons: Probably you should add more features in system ( like calling from browser,video,forecasting)

Overall: Hirehive is the great ATS that gives you all the functionality that you need for your internal HR system (referrals) as well external system where you can post instantly on dozen relevant job boards in our case IT, and get immediately dozen applicants within a couple hours. So far there was no technical problems and no bugs so it looks reliable

Recommendations to other buyers: maybe create a new module for only recruitment agency.

Pros: You can easily add your candidates and see what stage they are at in the process immediately. The design is great and everything you need to manage the candidates is in one place. Customer support are also amazing and always there to help. The tips on the website are also very helpful.

Another thing I love is that HireHive automatically posts your job ad onto several sites which means you don't have to, adding the job to one site saves so much time.

Pros: Dashboard, easy candidate funnel & metrics, social sharing, management of candidate communications.

Cons: Would like to have more users included in the pricing.

Overall: We've been using it for about five years (prior to branding change). It started out as a fairly basic platform, but has been continually enhanced - often in response to direct feature requests.

Hi Barry, thanks for your review. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with HireHive. Regarding user limitations - you can now have unlimited users on all pricing plans so you can add as many admins/hiring managers as you need. We hope that this is helpful. Thanks again for sharing your feedback.

Pros: Great design, all features you need to handle candidate's applications are available, very easy and fast to navigate.

Overall: I have been using HireHive as an internal ATS tool at Zartis. It is easy to navigate, communicate with candidates and my colleagues and handle vacancies on job boards. Comparing to other ATS I used previously, HireHive is very easy to understand even for people who have never worked with this kind of software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Highly recommend !

Comments: We are a small nonprofit and were looking for a hiring solution that would fit our needs. We do hiring occasionally and we have a very tight budget. HireHive provided us their solution for one tenth (TENTH) the cost of the previous solution we were using, and it provided virtually the same feature sets. It is a *tiny* bit buggy, but it seems like this is more due to just being a new tool. I would expect most of the (very minor) issues we faced to be gone in a month or two. They are constantly improving, adding new features, and fixing any issues that come up. They are *extremely* responsive to any customer input, and have a great support staff. THE best tool for the money, hands down. We would highly recommend HireHive! We are currently using it for three open positions, and it's working wonderfully.

Comments: I was put off by many enterprise solutions that are available. Enterprise software looks awful and is impossible to get up and running. You need a degree in physics!

HireHive has many features on offer that we like. Scheduling of interviews, the reports section is comprehensive, and ability to create job categories is excellent.

A hiring team member originally discovered this system after demoing many other systems. The demo with hire hive was really good and Siobhan, the person who brought us through the system made us feel that this would be the most robust solution for us. Needless to say it was a quick setup and the HR dept was up and running quickly. We are very happy customers.

We are glad that we chose HireHive. It met all our criteria. The custom careers site is also great as we don't have one ourselves. It looks great.

Noting bad to say about it. It's clean and robust.
