Pros: Being a Google Product, it's connected to the Google eco-system and Gsuit tools - this makes everything really streamlined. The search is really powerful and a huge time saver. Google is constantly developing and improving the features. Very affordable.

Cons: There is still a lot of room for improvement. Hire can do with a few more practical features like a question form that the Applicants can fill in to make. It's great for smaller businesses for the price, however, it's not very customizable.

Overall: Beats using a spreadsheet and having everything all over the place. It has made hiring a much more painless process.

One of the best with great potential to grow.

Pros: What I like the most is the fact of being able to communicate with applicants through Gmail, and the possibility of using Google Calendar to schedule interviews and record the interviewer's program in detail.

Cons: What I do not like is that in its initial phase, it is only available for companies in the US. UU UU with less than a thousand employees, and its operation is to offer a base of potential customers (ie, users of the Google network, whether Google+ profiles, emails, etc.). It must be expanded throughout the world.

Overall: Other benefits Google hire is that it aims to facilitate the work of the people in charge of recruiting personnel. According to various sources, the platform will allow employers to post offers and manage and accept applications. If in addition to that the service will present some differential element - artificial intelligence? -, it is still a mystery.

Clean and easy to use!

Pros: I like the integration with the Google applications. Hire by Google has pretty strong search abilities and it offers unique links for a lot of different job boards.

Cons: It is a great product if you are moving from another ATS or have not used it before. If you're already using an expensive customizable ATS, you probably would not like Google Hire. Google Hire works for most needs though and has pretty great integrations built into it.

Pros: Google Hire is an excellent tool for the human management department. In our company it was used for a brief moment, but enough to discover its power. The tracking of candidates for vacancies is powerful and easy to configure. In the company, they used the tool to show the list of vacancies and, of course, they used it intuitively.

Cons: When showing lists of job offers, Google Hire does not summarize most of the work pages offered, only the most convenient ones. Although the search process is usually delayed, the tool does not encourage patients to wait for candidates.

Pros: I was on the team that used the demo of this product, but decided not to purchase. It was definately not because of the software, because Google Hire is one of the best recruiting tools I have used in my professional career. Being able to sync to all Google Apps, give this software the functionality and power to keep all recuriting information in one place.

Cons: When I used the demo, there did not seem to be much information behind the product, mainly because the amount of leads and information within the database was very limited.

Overall: Great and easy to use hiring tool with limited infomation due to being new to the recruitment game.

Pros: I like the ease of adding interview slots to Google Calendars for interviewers, and the automatic hiding of feedback other interviewers have left until you leave your own feedback.

Cons: It can be buggy, depending on the view of a candidate, sometimes you could see feedback, sometimes you couldn't. It also sends a reminder to write up your feedback minutes after your interview slot ends, which is awkward if your interview slot is going over time and you get the notification when still with the candidate.

Pros: Most importantly, each interviewer has to write in their hire/no hire decision and they dont share it with others to avoid biasing the other interviewers.

Cons: On the PM side, the format seems to be broken. Some interviews are 30 min long and some are 45 min.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to learn. Not very many pros to list, it is a very basic ATS with no wow factor. Stick with Jobvite

Cons: Too many to list but here are the top: When you email a candidate via hire, candidates cannot respond. Email conversations with candidates are not accurately documented within Hire. Does not integrate with LinkedIn. You cannot parse LI profiles into Hire. If you have jobs posted on LI those applicants will not show up in Hire. No ability to post jobs to your social network; Twitter, FaceBook, LinkedIn

Integrates well too with major job posting websites.

Cons: Google hire currently only autopublishes to Glassdoor and Indeed. Will be brilliant if we are able to auto publish to LinkedIn, since most professionals are on there.

This is a very bare bones product and not what I expected for it coming out of Google.

Pros: It does not take a lot of time to pick up the tool for recruiters or engineers/hiring managers. Easy to navigate and add to collections as well as list the sourcer.

Cons: You have to @ everyone no matter if you are responding to a comment or starting a new one. It isn't the easiest to search through and it is very challenging to see your active pipeline, all candidates are in one long list and you have to scroll down. It has a number of areas for improvement

It was a little confusing at first, but after a few weeks I an maneuver seamlessly.

Pros: The job board integrations and the note taking. I like how you can send reminders for feedback and the how easy it is to communicate within the tool.

Cons: How people cant see feedback until they leave their own. This is a problem for us because our hiring managers dont want to get emails all day when people are applying, so we dot add them as a hiring manager. Then they cant see feedback until they leave their own. Sometimes you need that feedback before going into the interview so you can get candidates to elaborate on something or explain something.

Cons: There isn't a lot of functionality yet, so I'm having to find a lot of work-arounds, but that was expected, given the affordability. I also don't like that there is no external page hosted by Google for our career's page.

Pros: - ease of use
- connection with the G-Suite
- all information about candidate in one place
- good layout

Cons: - the biggest minus is that system doesn't check for a duplicates automatically, when we upload new candidates.
- doesn't connected with LinkedIN and doesn't load a profile from there
- there is no possibility to customize documents, which are loaded to the candidate's profile
- no possibility to delete or change the name of department if mistake was made and the same for the rejection reasons

These are the main features which we are missing a lot and which make our work with G-Hire very uncomfortable.

Overall: This is our first software for Recruiting and I have big doubts that it is the best one. The only one benefit, that we get is that everything is well organized and we started to grow our base of candidates.

Pros: I absolutely love the ease of use. It completely makes sense how they built it and is such a nice experience for the user. Nothing about it is really complicated and it lives up to the high Google standards. Whether it's an open role, a new candidate or an existing candidate, email templates or other automated features - everything is easily accessible and beautiful to manage. It makes our daily work easier and everything is completely organized. Plus the automated features such as email templates to reject a candidate or scheduling an interview with a few clicks are incredible. We've tried other ATS's and this is a winner!

Cons: Unfortunately the feature where Google Hire posts out open positions to job boards has been limited as they no longer are able to automatically post it out on Indeed for recruiting firms. This is mostly to be blamed on Indeed, but it's still limiting our usage of this software. This feature would have helped us a lot, now we can no longer receive applicants from Indeed unless we pay Indeed directly.

We implemented it for our firm at a time when our hiring needs were expanding.

Pros: Google is an innovator and it shows with this product. Seamless connection between Gmail and Calendar making the Hire platform easy to implement and use throughout the entire company, with minimal training. Additional add-ons through G suite that continue to make recruiting easier every day. Customer service is second to none, with Hire Help the most responsive team I've ever encountered. Questions are usually answered within an hour of submitting a request, and suggestions and recommendations are valued and acted upon.

Cons: Initially had an issue with incorrect time zones being sent to candidates when scheduling interviews causing some confusion, but that issue was worked out quickly.

Overall: A lot of time back in the day, along with a product that gets the hiring manager and their teams more involved in the recruitment process.

Pros: I like the design and ease of use. For the most part, things just work and the software is a pleasure to use. There are some issues with bugs here and there, but generally speaking it's a good lite ATS that looks good and works really well.

I would also say that the thing I like the most is their customer service. You can immediately chat with a Google Hire support person, and they're all phenomenal. If they can't resolve my issue, they send it to engineers and get me a solution.

The price is also a huge benefit. 100/mo and we have a few users onboard. The fact that they price by org at such a low rate vs charging by seat is awesome.

The software itself works as you would generally expect a Google product to. It's good looking, easy to implement, and gives you some good options.

Cons: It definitely has some bugs, and what I like least is just that it doesn't have enough features. I really love the software, but there are little things here and there I wish I could change. There are no customizable fields, which seems silly given that every company will likely want to use it a little bit differently.

I also dislike that it is set up only for internal HR teams, but that's not their fault. That is their main target, and we signed up as a recruiting firm just because we love Google products and already use a bunch. Unfortunately there are some annoying difficulties as a result, but for the most part we work around it just fine.

Lastly, the only other con I can think of is that you have no idea what feature is coming down the pipeline at any given moment. If there are things happening, they seem to be slow. We have requested I would say a handful of features, and they always put you on an email list to be notified when it's completed. In the last few months, we haven't been notified of anything being implemented and as far as I can tell nothing in the software really has changed. I suppose it isn't as buggy as it was initially so that's a good thing.

To be fair, who knows! They might just do huge releases every six months or something, then working on fixing all bugs until next release.

Overall: We benefited from Google Hire as it became the book of truth for all of our candidates. An ATS is necessary, and yet we found ourselves struggling and disliking a lot of the alternatives out there. Google Hire is well designed, well integrated into Google products which we use, and for the most part gets the job done of helping us sort/contact/and find candidates.
